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 Frida 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.
Ricardo’s son, Ricardo Ramon 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, his children include. Kane once tortured Ellie Knightfall, for the rape of his daughter Cat.
Isis, Catalina, Anne, Jaime, and Enrique. None bare the same nationalities.
Catalina was born in Madrid, Spain; to Kane Liafador and an unknown woman. Cat's mother committed suicide not long after Cat's birth. 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, 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 current 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.
Children: Isadora Leabeu
Sofia is the "Half-Sister" of both Z and Kane, she commands a small squadron of Cardinals based in Columbia. Sofia is the illegitimate child of Ricardo Ramon Liafador, and Maria Jose; a Colombian house-keeper. Sofia does not identify herself as a Liafador, but has vowed revenge on Catalina for the killing of her sister. Sofia is the mother of Maya, however she placed Maya up for adoption; years ago.
Children: Maya Liafador (Lopez)
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.
Because he travels a lot, Marcos tends to sleep around a lot too; he has a child with a Moroccan woman. The child and the woman, both to this day remain a secret.
Children: Zeon, Lebreau
Zeon is the only daughter of Estella and Marcos Liafador, They run one of the Liafador family wineries in Sicily, Italy;where Zeon was born and raised. Both her parents were also in charge of the Cardinal division in Italy and ran a training camp in Puglia Italy.
Zeon grew up around the life of the Cardinals, training with them, going on missions and even to the point of her taking over the Cardinal training camp and running it herself under the watchful eye of her parents while at the same time, helping run the family winery when she's not busy with the other family business.
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. She is a sister of Isis and Cat, but will only converse with Isis. She owns a small villa in Nicaragua, but is native to Siberia.
Lebreau is the illegitimate daughter of Marcos and, 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 Zenon 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.
Enrique is the only son of Kane Liafador, and believed to be the only male in the third generation. He usually stays close to Kane, but has been sent on missions to monitor the movements of Isadora, Isabella, and Maya. Enrique suffers from Riley-Day Syndrome, which makes it hard for him to eat at times; however he is insensitive to pain. Enrique harvested his power through his condition, much like Catalina.
Maya was raised as, "Maya Lopez" it wasn't until recently, when she found out she was related to a Liafador. Maya started as a teen sensation in Columbia, but was recruited by Ziccarra to join the Uncanny Trinity. She has not been seen or, heard since Catalina rose to power in Eden. Maya suffers from sickle cell, ironically she is also strengthened by it.
