"Tout est à nous pour la prise."

The family of mutant (the first mutant would not surface until much later) thieves who date back to the French colonial empire. Originally leaving to the New World to get a fresh start, Fontaine ancestor Anselme Fontaine, discovered a powerful greed in his heart. He would pass through life as little more than a petty thief, but his grandson, Armand, would not. Armand returned to France in time for the French Revolution of 1789, Armand made a fortune stealing priceless works of art and selling them after the Revolution. His acts of greed would spawn a lineage of madly successful thieves.

Fast forward to the current day. Many Fontaines remain, though few retain their original surname to avoid detection.

Family Structure

The Fontaine family follows a strict hierarchy determined by skill. Anyone can challenge the current head of the family. If successful, they win authority and control over every aspect of the family. However, in the event of an assassination, kidnapping, or other calamity, the family would not be entirely helpless. With each new generation, all Fontaine children are tested at sixteen to determine who of the group is eligible to succeed the family head. If the head is unexpectedly removed, one of the candidates are immediately placed in power.

Current Head of Family

Jean Pierre Fontaine

Long-time beloved head of family. Unchallenged thus far because of his ability to lead the family and undeniable skill. Mutant power is halted aging.

Active Fontaines (To be expanded later)

Achille Fontaine - Famed artist. Only Fontaine thus far to refuse thievery. Mutant power: reality artistry.

Viktor Fontaine - Psychokinesis (levitation of self/foreign objects), Unrefined precognitive abilities

Locations

Though the family possesses multiple homes and safehouses, there are two notable strongholds.

Chateau de Fontaine

Deceptively peaceful, the ancestral Fontaine home is located outside of Paris. It's practically a stronghold. The forest around the building is laced with traps, and there are even more spread out across the grounds. This makes it unwise for someone to travel the grounds without a servant or family member to accompany them. Major family business generally takes place here, such as heist plans, business deals, or training.

French Quarter, New Orleans

The Fontaine family used to have many homes spread across the globe. Vacation homes, summer homes, second residences (third and fourth too), safehouses, et cetera. However, due to rather strenuous circumstances with extended family, their New Orleans manor is currently their only place of residence.

That isn't to say it's not extravagant itself. In fact, it's a home that's the envy of many a neighbor. And it carries quite the pricetag, according to current family head Jean Pierre Fontaine.

How exactly the Fontaines maintain and fund this home is assumed to be through Fabrice's prosperous real estate empire. Though rumors of unlawful practices have circulated them for ages and a booming real estate gig could hardly support such wealth.

The mansion itself is apparently unguarded, save for one man at the front gate. The Fontaines come and go at their own will, though most choose to live at their own homes or at the Chateau.

Rules

IC

  1. No destroying any part of the manor without permission. Minor stuff, like furniture or small items, go nuts. But anything bigger please ask me por favor
  2. Same thing with fights. Keep fights to a minor scale. Any big fights I'd like to know about first.
  3. Sell npcs as best as possible.
  4. No godmodding. Though that goes without saying.
  5. Pretty much open to all. Explanation of how you go there'd be great though.
  6. Pm questions to this account, _Zombie_, or Illustrate.

OOC

  1. Keep bickering and drama out of the thread, yo

The enigmatic head of the Fontaine Family arrived at the Chateau. Pride shone through the confident smile on his face as he stepped out of the elegant limousine, surrounded by attendants. Holding his cane out to the side, he pressed a portion of a nearby tree trunk in. To his left a section of the lawn slid apart to reveal a staircase leading underground. "Téléchargez, mes bons hommes. Prenez votre part après avoir obtenu à la voûte." His voice, deep and commanding, was accompanied with a friendly gesture. As he made his way up to the Chateau, his associates began unloading riches. Mainly money and jewelry from the latest heist. It would be stored in one of the vaults under the Chateau grounds. Meanwhile, Jean had earned himself a drink.

@_zombie_: A flight, a taxi and a sigh later. Puzzler stood at the front entrance of the manor, his shaded glasses tipped down a bit to glare at his latest adventure. "Bloody French..." Was all the puzzle punk had to comment on before walking up to the door, slamming his fist against it a few times to get some sort of attention.

While waiting, he chucked a glob of gum in his mouth while tapping a Ramones beat on his lap.

@the_puzzler: Silence occupied the air around the English man. The soft steps of the Fontaine patriarch didn't even make so much as a soft crunch in the frosted-over grass. "The English aren't exactly charming, ami." A heavy hand fell onto the smaller man's shoulder. "Your wine's practically toilet water compared to our cheapest concoctions."

#35 Edited by The_Puzzler (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@_sovereign_: "Don't brand me like I am some bloke who gives a shit..Pardon my..French I guess?" The rebel brushed off the man's shoulder with a young scowl on his face. Seventeen years old did not stop this pink haired mental psionic titan from being the most arrogant teen around. "I don't belong to a country, only suckers hide behind national pride...You the one that called me mate?..Ooh..Nice place.."

Spiller dropped his bag by his side and started to look at the fine art that cluttered the walls.

@the_puzzler: "I wouldn't call myself a patriot, but cultural appreciation is a matter close to my heart." Jean silently sized him up as he strolled into the home behind him. "I am." Taking a bottle of expensive wine from the butler, he poured two glasses and set one to the side. Tilting the glass to his lips, he allowed the slightest amount to slip in his mouth as he concluded his mental assessment. Young, rude, arrogant. Probably put too much stock in his powers. He reminded Jean of Viktor. "Culture can only be truly enjoyed with the finest it has to offer. Of course, the finest requires money. To get money, I.. alleviate the burden of excess from others. Such tasks require intelligence, which I'm told you have countless amounts of. So I called you here to propose a partnership."

#37 Posted by The_Puzzler (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@_sovereign_: Puzzler picked up the fine drink, and of course just guzzled it down, no flavor savored. "Bleh. Intelligence? Well if you consider the fact that my brain creates thousands and thousands of brilliant thoughts a minute?...Then I would say I have a few warehouses full..A partnership sounds just fine by me.."

He clicked his tongue and set down the glass, pausing with a pointed finger however. "Conditions.."

#38 Edited by _Sovereign_ (89 posts) - - Show Bio

@the_puzzler: Jean frowned. Typical of someone who couldn't appreciate wine. "Oui, oui. I've heard. I wouldn't have bothered with someone as callous as you otherwise." Lowering himself, he placed his rear into a chair and crossed one leg over the other. "Name them, and we can discuss the details."

#39 Posted by The_Puzzler (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@_sovereign_: "A spare room in your shack. And a favor, negotiable, per intel target. I would say that's a hell of a deal considering I don't want any of your sodding money.." Spiller pushed his glasses up slightly with an arrogant chuckle, glaring at his clearly future employer. "..Sound fair?"

#40 Posted by _Sovereign_ (89 posts) - - Show Bio

@the_puzzler: "Fair enough, I suppose." The decline of money was a surprise, but Jean's expression didn't shift to show it. "However, be mindful of what you ask. Anything that involves antagonizing my kin will not be well met."

#41 Posted by The_Puzzler (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@_sovereign_: "Pfff...Your "kin" are safe" Spiller scoffed while putting up air quotes. "I don't have any problem with your Brady Bunch so don't sweat it. So long as they leave my pink hair out of it.." He jested while tussling his Mohawk a bit. "You got yourself a deal, Fontaine.."

#42 Posted by _Sovereign_ (89 posts) - - Show Bio

@the_puzzler: "Good." Holding a hand up, he snapped his fingers. A large man walked up and stood beside Jean, his arms folded behind his back. One of his eyes was missing. "Oui, Monsieur?" Jean motioned to Spiller and spoke aloud his instructions. "Rainier. Montrez-lui à l'une des chambres. Lui offrir l'hospitalité vous serait l'une de la famille. Il est notre invité."

"Oui. Tout de suite, Monsieur."

"Rainier will show you to a room. Unfortunately, unlike the family members, he only speaks French. Though as smart as you are I'm sure learning a language will be of no concern." Rising to his feet, he smiled once more. "As for myself, I've plans to lay. Enjoy your stay, if that's at all possible."

#43 Posted by The_Puzzler (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@_sovereign_: Spiller merely scoffed while being escorted by this brute of a servant, carrying his bag behind him. After but a few seconds of his eyes shifting back and forth, he only said in a mumble. "C'est juste ce dont j'avais besoin...Arts du langage à nouveau..."

#44 Posted by _Sovereign_ (89 posts) - - Show Bio

@the_puzzler: "Un cours de recyclage est toujours bénéfique." Noted the soft-voiced butler, smirking.

Meanwhile, Jean himself departed for his study, his business here done.

#45 Edited by The_Puzzler (6364 posts) - - Show Bio

@_sovereign_: "Peut-être quand j'ai l'énergie pour prétendre aux soins. Ce dont j'ai besoin est une petite sieste sanglante..." Spiller yawned before entering his new room, cringing a tad from just how perfect it all was. "Some renovating..That's for certain.."

I think it would be pretty sweet to have some sort of (?) families on the vine. Pretty much like the Godfather's five families. The Knightfalls, the Fontaines, etc.. I think it'd be pretty cool.
