The Blaydow Family

The known Blaydow family, in chronological order

Middler Blaydow (b. March 15, 1603)

A Harpy-Shapeshifter hybrid. Initially suffering from amnesia, Middler followed Daniel McMurran to John's house one day, vaguely recognizing him due to his past familiarity with Eden Elwood, one of Daniel's past lives. Middler remained a fixture in John's house, eventually befriending Julius Larson, Jessica McMurran, and Thanasi Reium. When Daniel died, he moved to the Castle of Atlantis. Eventually, he married Daniel and Jessica's daughter Celena, who had a longstanding crush on him. Something between Middler and Celena rendered birth control ineffective, meaning their family rapidly saw exponential growth. Although the couple attempted to live independently, the growing number of mouths they had to feed found them in poverty. They were forced to admit defeat and move back to the Castle of Atlantis. When Celena died giving birth to their 17th child, Middler became a vagabond for a time before returning to the castle with a daughter he mothered named Midette. Middler continues to serve the castle as a spy and do odd jobs.

Celena (Crowley) Blaydow (Feb. 27, 2011 - Feb. 15, 2063)

The second child of Daniel and Jessica McMurran. She met Middler Blaydow during a visit with her father to John's house and immediately fell in love with the strange man. When John moved to Atlantis and married her mother, he adopted Celena along with her younger brothers Feemy and Adam. Celena eventually married Middler and moved away from the Castle of Atlantis with him. Unfortunately, something between her and Middler rendered birth control ineffective, causing their family to see rapid exponential growth. Although the couple attempted to live independently, the growing number of mouths they had to feed found them in poverty. They were forced to admit defeat and move back to the Castle of Atlantis where Celena got a job in the academy her brother had recently opened. She died young, while giving birth to her 17th child, who also did not survive the process.

Marisol (Rocha) Blaydow (b. Aug. 23, 2020)

A former lawyer and past Queen of Malais. She fell in love with Midette Blaydow later in life and, when she stepped down from the throne, moved with her love to the mountains of Daland. The married couple have started a small family there, with two children named Macmorris and Neoma.

Aldan Blaydow (b. April 14, 2032)

The first child of Middler and Celena Blaydow. He has an affinity for animals and runs a shelter.

Macy Blaydow (b. Dec. 7, 2033)

The second child of Middler and Celena Blaydow. Known for being rather eccentric. She married one of her professors after receiving her doctorate and had four children with him: Eden, Zoe, Nicolas, and Lazarus. Her husband was much older than her and died not long after the birth of his fourth child. Macy continues to do research and work as a professor for her university.

Mathias Blaydow (b. Nov. 1, 2034)

The third child of Middler and Celena Blaydow. Rather diminutive librarian of the Castle. Had a one-night-stand with the Fire Elemental, resulting in a Pixei child nine months later. Fire left the child with Matty, who named her Fayne and raised her by himself. Eventually, Fire returned to Mathias and her daughter and rekindled their relationship. They currently live together at the Castle, often wintering on Fire Island.

Rubean Blaydow (b. Oct. 31, 2041)

The fourth child of Middler and Celena Blaydow, the fraternal member of a set of triplets. He is a knight and often found guarding the Castle of Atlantis' front gate, checking for identification. Married to his longtime girlfriend Suzanne with whom he has a son named Wolfgang and a daughter named Ruby.

Emerick Blaydow (b. Oct. 31, 2041)

The fifth child of Middler and Celena Blaydow, an identical member of a set of triplets. He works as an archeologist in the Kingdom of Arudis. It is unknown if he will ever settle down.

Dion Blaydow (b. Oct. 31, 2041)

The sixth child of Middler and Celena Blaydow, an identical member of a set of triplets. He is a scholar, living in Malais with his research and romantic partner Rex Stephens.

Suzanne (Samara) Blaydow (b. January 7, 2049)

The longtime girlfriend and eventual wife of Rubean Blaydow. The couple have two children together: Wolfgang and Ruby. She works as a Castle maid.

Priscilla (Randall) Blaydow (b. Aug. 16, 2056)

The second child of Julien and Vladimer Randall. She was born an albino Opposer and married Houston Blaydow, another albino person. Her first child, Noel, was the result of a one-night-stand with Nicholas Marsetti before her marriage, but her subsequent 16 children are Houston's. Sissy served as a knight for many years, but was dishonorably discharged from service, stripped of her Opposer powers, and placed in a mental institution for attempting to murder her brother-in-law Rubean after an altercation. While she is sometimes allowed out on good behavior, she is still considered too mentally unwell to fully rejoin society.
