Jocas DeFaye the First was, with no doubt, the worst Lord of the House. He had too much of a liking to wine, food, and women who weren't Hannelynn, née Tarin, who was the mother of Jocas DeFaye II, heir to the House. This caused much discomfort within the family, especially between Jarrok, brother to Jocas I, and Hannelynn soon started to resent her husband. But despite him being a careless Enkidukai, Jocas knew best, and realized what his brother was up to.
Jarrok DeFaye was then aprehended, accused of trying to kill his brother and usurp the title of Lord. His days finished with him in a small, cold cell. But the war for the power didn't die with him: Johanna DeFaye, the younger sister of Jocas, took example of her uncle, or of the story she had been told, and soon started plotting a plan to get rid of her brother, and become the first Lady DeFaye. Jocas still has scars to prove her attempts to get rid of him, even though their story seems to be far more private and strange than what's known to the general public...
After their father dilapidated the DeFaye fortune thanks to dishonest consultants and other thieves wearing rich garments, Jocas and Johanna left the gentry, advised by their mother, and moved up to the First Level, the Dome, concretely to the city of Hydlaa, so that they could start anew and the House would continue with its original intent of being a rendezvous point for those in need of help.
