The Jakandes are a wealthy family of Purebloods, thriving in upstate New York. They are new money, descended from escaped slaves who fled North. Gahiji Jakande, a member of the family's first free generation, was a renowned potion maker who sold his potions for a small fortune. He eventually opened shops all around the United States, and taught trusted and talented employees his secret tips.

He has since died, but his wife and three children still live lavishly with their fortune. Orsolya was their new leader, and she made sure they were the classiest people around, as she didn't want to have a reputation as flashy new money. She made sure the whole family lived together so she could keep an eye on her grand children. Now that she's considering a move to England, will she tear the family apart?
