Chosen Family Trees

This diagram shows a detail from a family tree. Females are shown in red, 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. Males who have gone through the Apotheosis are shown with a “0” taint—indicating 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 in curved brackets beneath a name box 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.
