The Liafador Family emerged in the 1900’s, as a family built on business. The small family winery boomed in the Spanish town o,f Malaga; and soon the Liafador Wine called “Besos” flourished throughout the country of Spain.
After the resurgence of the Red Cardinals in the early 20 century; the Liafador Family became heavily involved with terrorist organization. Ramon Liafador, and his wife Sabella Liafador; were the first members of the family initiated into the esteemed order.
Ramon hatched a devious conspiracy, known as the Liafador Legacy; which was an 8 part plan to, usurp all Spanish Sovereign states, and the manipulation of generations.
Ramons son, Ricardo and his wife Sabella opted not to enter the organization and, funded a rising organization known as, the Braveharts. After the murder of Sabella and Ricardo Liafador; the family have spread to different areas of the world all in charge of their own Cardinal units.
Is the 1st born of Sabella and Ricardo; he followed in his father's footsteps and became a Brave-hart. He and the Braveharts hoped to keep the Cardinals out of world affairs. Kane is known for his nomadic nature; despite his seemingly distant personality, he keeps a close eye on his daughters. Kane is best described as a "Rolling stone" having slept with and; impregnated 5 different females.. Kane once tortured Ellie Knightfall, for the rape of his daughter Cat.
His Children include: Isis, Catalina, Selene, Anne (Killed by Catalina), Jaime (Killed by Catalina), and Enrique (Killed by Catalina). None bare the same nationalities.
Catalina was born in Madrid, Spain; to Kane Liafador. He used an extensive amount of genetic manipulation techniques to make her resemble Ziccarra at a young age. After performing intensive monarch programming on Ziccarra, he was able to implant the child in his sister. Making Catalina the daughter of Ziccarra.
In an effort to keep Catalina away from Ziccarra, Kane took Cat to Belize; and raised her himself. At the age of 10, Cat showed signs of Capgras syndrome, and mild depression. It is believed that her depression is the source of her powers.
Catalina rose to prominence, shortly after her father left Belize. With her control over the Shadow Cardinals; she quickly made a name for herself in the cartel. Her drug empire expanded into Brazil, pre-invasion Venezuela and, the Caribbean Islands.
Cat's depression left her open to a spiritual possession, by Y intercept. (Y is her CVNU equivalent), Y's nasty and foul nature caused Cat to bud heads with; Ziccarra Liafador and, then Husband Quintus Knightfall. After being halted in her attempted destruction of New York, Cat split from Y; but was raped in the process. From that day forward, the Tenekenetic Queen has vowed revenge on those that wronged her.
She is credited with being the former Queen of Eden, depowering Southern Venezuela; and killing Ziccarra Liafador. Cat used to command, the shadow Cardinals; however this was taken from her, when Quintus Knightfall completed the Pit.
Ziccarra Isabella Liafador
Was the leader of the Tibetian and Malagan Cardinals; she is known as the "Queen Cardinal" because she commands the Cardinals in the origin place of Tibet.
Z is the youngest child of Ricardo Ramon and, Sabella Liafador. Z's Cardinals are the most honorable bunch of Cardinals in the family. They are taught not to fear death, rather to embrace it. They have a core set of morals that do not falter even in the less fortunate of situations. Ziccarra taught herself, how to use her diabetes as a defensive trigger.
Ziccarra's marriage to Quintus Knightfall came to an end, when Quintus was killed by Grandmaster Impero Ishin. The Malagan Marquess vanished into the under belly of Mexico; after being betrayed by Isabella Marisol.
A few months after her exile, Ziccarra was met by a Saccari, and told of her daughter's whereabouts. Fearful for what might happen to Isadora, and her best friend Ellie; Ziccarra returned. She was eventually killed by Catalina.
Thanks to Quintus Knightfall, Ziccarra was resurrected as the "Cardinal Goddess" having officially parted ways with the Knightfall, the former conqueror of Venezuela turned over a new leaf and eventually married the herald of Hope, Alexis Pettis.
She is currently the "President of the Spanish Government"

Daughter: Sky Carmichael
Marcos, unlike Kane; became a Red Cardinal and took his talents to Italy. Once there he and his wife Estella set up a Cardinal training post in Puglia to help assist Z. Marcos manages the Mediterranean wine distribution as well, as any problems that need Cardinal influence around the sea. He is the father of Zeon the White Cardinal Chief, and new Liafador Family Matriarch.

After a fated meeting with Ziccarra she is now the Liafador Family Matriarch.
Jaime is the result of Kane's nomadic lifestyle, she is both Spanish and Thai in descendent and commands the small Cardinal presence in Guyana; much like her half sister, Catalina; Jaime wasn't allowed to know about Ziccarra. It wasn't until she met Catalina that she got in on the Cardinal business. Jaime was killed by Catalina; once she took the throne in Eden.
Isis is the oldest child of Kane Liafador, and damn near twin sister to Catalina. She is of Spanish and Greek Heritage; and is probably one of the most intelligent Liafadors. She strives to honor both Ziccarra, and Quintus; while remaining completely loyal to Cat. Isis is the only "Third Generation" Liafador to complete the pit.
Liafador women are known for being beautiful, Anne is not. Being of both Spanish and Russian heritage ; Anne has a massive frame, that makes her somewhat of a juggernaut.

Following Catalina's rise in Eden, the Dark Cardinals stormed Anne's compound in Siberia, and assasinated her.
Lebreau is the illegitimate daughter of Marcos and Daria Holmes, she is of Moroccan heritage. Typically she does not leave the country, but she was first contacted by Ziccarra; upon discovering the VV's hills location. Lebreau harnesses a hatred towards Zeon and Marcos, but swore to her mother never to act on those feelings.
If you ask Catalina, Isadora does not count, but anyone else will vouch for the "Princess of Cardinals". Isadora is the daughter of Quintus Knightfall and Ziccarra Liafador. Isadora does not bare the name, "Liafador, or Knightfall" rather Lebeau as an homage to her handler. This vicious vixen has gone toe to toe, with Mercy and Ellie; along with countless others. She was killed after some dealings with the Lebeau faction.

He usually stays close to Kane, but has been sent on missions to monitor the movements of Isadora, Isabella, and Maya.

He was hunted down ad killed by Catalina sometime after the she took command in Eden.
Maya Liafador - Pettis
Maya is the first child of Ziccarra and Alexis, as a embyro her consciousness was abducted by the 3rd society; and implanted in a pre-made body; aging her months before she was actually born. She is often considered to be the most powerful amongst the Liafadors because of her "New God and Cardinal Goddess" origins.

Maya is a well known model who sometimes partakes in superherosim.
Leonel Pettis is the adoptive son of Ziccarra and Alexis, he traveled from a "dead" universe known as Reality M, to the CVNU in hopes of rebuilding a life for himself. Leonel appears to be a younger version of Alexis with just about the same abilities; save for a few.
Even though he has been accepted into the "Liafador Pettis Family" he refuses to call Z and Alexis his parents.
Faatina Knightfall is the daughter of Jayden Knightfall and Sabella Liafador, she is unofficially the oldest of the Knightfall children.

Shortly after leaving the military she was given the nickname "Cerise Swashbuckler, or Cerise Tactican" because of her ability to wage war on land and in sea. She fought against the Red Cardinals initial push into Tibet, but pulled out after learning Ziccarra was her half-sister.
While she is believed to be powerless there is evidence that suggest otherwise.
Sky Carmichael is the daughter of Sofia Liafador, her name was purposly made "Carmichael" so that Sofia's mother still had some sort of legacy to continue. Sky is a member of the OPEM terrorist organization, and has set her sights on bringing down the Champion and Maya.
Currently still an infant, Tassania Pettis is a Half-Cardinal, Half New God hybrid; like her sister Maya. She has yet to display any of the basic human skills; such as talking or walking, nor has she displayed any signs of inheriting Ziccarra or Alexis' power.

Left at just a young age by her father, Jessica grew up surviving on the very streets she lived on. After years of terrorizing Gothic City, she was placed in Bedlam Asylum where she spent many of her days doing "hush" government missions. After staging a massive prison riot that eventually granted her freedom, Jessica was finally able to meet the man that abandoned her so many years before; Marcos Liafador. Making the Darwinist Dictator a Liafador.
Much like Faatina, Mark is also of both Liafador and Knightall blood. His father, Charlemagne Leabeau impregnated the girl he raised as his daughter; Isadora Liafador--who was of both Liafador and Knightfall lineage herself. Mark doesn't have a strong connection to the Liafador side of his family, he has met Ziccarra (His grandmother) on one occasion, one that ended with an attack by Darkchild.
Despite worrying about his well-being his "Granny" knows he is more than capable of taking care of himself.
Selene Liafador's origins are an enigma, the exact date of her birth are a mystery; but it's clear that she is the child of Kane Liafador and the Greek Goddess, Hecate. It is believed that Selene came into being during the original rise of the 3rd Society, but no one other than Maya can confirm this.
Because Maya has such vivid memories of Selene the two are virtually inseparable. Selene shares the same socialite personality as Maya, but has a closer bond with the Ziccarra; then Maya does.
