Important People[edit]

The Founders Of The Family Lines[edit]

Robert Foundry

Robert Foundry masterminded the formation of the families and their form of community after the men who returned from the Island were badly treated in the English Court system. Became determined to follow the Lady's dictates, and make the Foundry line the guiding force within the Family.
Family Gift - Glamor and Illusion

Steven Garnsley

Upon returning to England Garnsley remained in close communication with the Lady, and was subject to unnerving visions that drove him to take drugs in an attempt to shut them out. Was eventually declared insane and placed in a madhouse. The Garnsley line merged quickly with the other families, and the name lost within a few generations.
Family Gift - Foretelling The Future Via Visions. This is the rarest and least often found of the Lady's Gifts.

Scottish Folktales[edit]

The Scots who live at the far northern edge of Scotland have tales of a battle between St. Patrick and a Great White Serpent to took place on an island possibly identified as the Faroe Islands. The stories indicate that the serpent was strong enough to resist (briefly) even the power of God, but that it was eventually vanquished and locked away deep beneath the island.
