The Eriksen family is what most people would call ‘old money’. They have been a guard family for generations since the family was created. The Eriksen family first originated in Scandinavian, but they ended up moving to Srario 4,000 years ago. They were there when the town first settled there. The Patriarch of this family was Biorn Eriksen, during his time he was the most powerful Mystic/Viking and brought a lot of glory to his family and village.
They moved to Srario because a couple of Mundanes came too close to the village and started damaging their resources. They became a guard family for the other three families when one of the children from the Fernandez family was being chased by some golems when they got too close to a dark part of the forest. On this day the family is still a guard family, but the current head is the wife of the late Jacky Robbert who has passed away after an incident involving the youngest child of the Tassi family. He was put on “trial” by the current head and he was sent out of town permanently.
Now with Ingrid Eriksen-Robbert as the Matriarch of the family. The mistakes Jacky made and even the memories of him are being forgotten. Even the twins Magin and Freya don’t remember much about him. Magin and Freya are seventeen-year-old twins with Magin being older by ten minutes born to Ingrid and Jacky Eriksen-Robbert. Currently Magin is being trained to be the next head of the family.
Freya is training to be the wife and/or Assistant for one of the other three families. Unlike the other families there isn’t a lot of pressure on them but it’s still a lot for young kids. While the kids of the other families have to take over whatever business their families have plus taking over the care of the town. All Magin will have to do is make sure the next heads of the families have the protection that they need. Meanwhile Freya’s only jobs are to either get married to someone from the big three families, or someone very respected in the town and still be the assistant to one of the families.
And while all the children understand that they have this responsibility and must do what they’re told by their parents, even if it disrupts their own happiness. This is kind of why the twins are really glad that they are best friends with Tassi’s youngest child. Some people think that they use her to get out of certain things involving family rules all the children have to follow in their life.
