Chosen Family Trees

This diagram shows a detail of a family tree. Females are shown in red, and males in blue. vertical lines between boxes indicate lineal descent. Horizontal links indicate pairings resulting in offspring. The numbers in a name box show that person’s blood taint. Those males who have gone through the Apotheosis are shown with a “0” taint – which indicates that their blood has been transubstantiated into ichor. The coloured dots above a name box indicate a blood rank. The number above a name box indicates the age of an offspring’s mother at the time of his/her birth. Numbers beneath a name box in curved brackets indicate the year of birth followed by the year of death. Numbers in square brackets indicate the year when a candidate achieves his apotheosis. All years are given relative to the reign of Kumatuya.
