The name Knightfall first rose to prominence in documented history in 1236. A Baron Knightfall of Rome is noted to have been a instrumental alongside his counter part Varius of Newcastle in installing a strained but stable union between the Templers and Hospitallers in the city of Jerusalem. The forward thinking nature of these men saving many christian lives and a regained focus on the quest for the hold grail.
History following this event is later conflicting with reports of the united forces of Newcastle and Knightfall soldiers either finding and relocating the holiest of relics, to the fractious relationship finally giving way short of glory. Though rumors of documents of a more revealing nature that illuminate this period can be found for those willing to look.
All that is truly known is that at some point after 1307 the name Knightfall all but vanished from records as the family where sent to hunt down their former allies the Newcastle's back where their alliance first began in the holy land. The success of the of the Templer culling both escalating the names standing within the catholic church and also brought it to prominence as a target for revenge from the hidden remaining members of the Newcastle and Slay families of their former allies.
This new found level of church sponsored murder and undercover warfare leading the family to break away from the control of the church under the banner of the Order of Sancta Camisa some time after the Templer purge. An organisation made of former hospitaller allies and every generation of the family of that time period. Free of the churches influence the order became an unmatched force who combined aspects of western and eastern combat methods to create an unparalleled combat training system. A codex of methods was written combining these various skills and techniques passing from Knightfall father to son throughout the orders history and beyond.
The time as part of the order to the last half a century has only one reference and that's the codex itself. History between these two points in mainly hearsay as the codex and its mysteries are not open to all and thus its secrets may not be freely distributed. Rumours connected to the name has continued to this day including links to the Spanish revolution , various dealings in world wars and political regimes but no concrete evidence that maybe brought to light here. Recent history covering the last half a century is far more open and below is the official family bloodline according to the families records themselves.
The most recent generations of Knightfall's all stem from the pairing of Carolyn Sands and Julian Knightfall. Carolyn had three children her first born Therese ( who little is known about) their first son Vincent ( who positively nothing is known about) and their second son Jayden. From here the families internal issues make the rest of the tree and the lineage of the name slightly more difficult to plot. Thereze's life after her birth is almost completely untraceable due to her fractured relationship with her brothers. Though there are reports of her marriage to a man named Virgil ( no last name known) and the birth a son called Jothee (@jothee_knightfall).
Vincent's side of the family is near impossible to gather. The little that was brought to light comes from Vincent's only know Child Ashley Knightfall (@ashley_knightfall). Her parent's names ( Vincent and Rebbeca) her age and her nationality being all that is known of this particular branch of the family tree.
Jayden's side of the family is also not without fractured relationships and complexity.The suave Knightfall is known as a womanizer and has fathered several children with a handful of women despite being married to Grace (@grace_knightfall). His legitimate children from with his marriage include Quintus ( @quintus_knightfall), Ellie (@ellie_knightfall), Asami (@asami) and Kincaid (@kincaid_knightfall).
Though due to his promiscuous nature he also nurtured a second family in Spain producing a further two sons with a local women name Luana. Their Sons Andres( @andres_knightfall) the eldest and Cassius (@cassuis_slay_knightfall) the youngest also know as the missing Knightfall due to his abduction till manhood. Whilst in Spain he also found time to have another illicit affair with Sabella Liafador of the famed Liafador family. Allegedly a union attempting to bring the two families together. Their daughter Naomi Monroe, however, has gone untraced for some time.
Jayden's Playboy/caviler attitude does not end here however as he also has fathered at least two other children to his knowledge. A union with a lady simply labeled as Bastet (later found to be Bastet Newcastle) producing yet another son named Maximus (@maximus_newcastle) who kept his mothers surname.
Continuing his globe-trotting adulterous ways Jayden estranged another woman. Paperwork suggests her name to be Victoria, the only paperwork available to suggest this union a birth certificate naming Jayden as the father of an Arthur Knightfall. As with many of estranged children, the name is just about all the information that the family has as Jayden has been less than forthcoming with his past indiscretions. Arthur condition is currently unknown. Based on the little information available we do know he fathered a son David (@david_knightfall) with his Partner Diana Knightfall who's status is also unknown. This small section of the family remains independent to the rest at the current date.
The final "or apparently final" child of Jayden "to date" is named Faatina Knightfall ( @faatina_knightfall ) again little is known about other than her mother's name was Ginger Johannesburg and she like many of Jayden's lost children have been extremely hard to gather information on.
The next generation
The current generation of Knightfalls have produced few children with Andres and Quintus both being Fathers but the remaining children of Jayden yet to produce any other heirs. Andres and his love Mercy Sheridan have a daughter Catriona Knightfall, she is all but unknown to most of the family and the world at large. Quintus's has had several "daughters" though due to a ripple in the fabric of space and time his "mambas" where vanquished into the ether. @isadora_knightfall (daughter of @ziccarra and Quintus), was also killed. Her son Mark Antony Quintus's first grandchild ( fathered by an unknown man Charlesmagne Lebeau) is known to the family. Like his mother before him, he is somewhat distant from his Knightfall side of the family after Quintus tried to murder him. Rumours are currently circulating of another son for the man formerly known as Quintus. @sabriel_knightfall is pretty much an enigma to his family his mother's name and status likewise.
Sophia Knightall/Steele is Quintus's last living child. Her mother is the infamous Psychiatrist and white queen of the dark hellfire club Alexandra Steele. Unlike her cousin Catriona her heritage isn't as well guarded a secret with her uncle Cassius having been informed directly of her.
The Offshotting branch
At some point presumably in the late 80's early 90's at the peak of Jayden's powers somehow some of DNA was secured and used to create a clone this clone then sired a further generation of Knightfalls. This unique branch of the tree is outlined here as it's still not entirely explained to the main bulk of the family as relations to this branch were unstable. SEE APENDIX 1
The third wave
With the continued expansion of the family line and new family members springing up out of the woodwork whole new branches of the family tree have recently sprung into life (or been reclaimed), finding themselves among their namesakes once again. The emergence of Jax Knightfall @_ebonyzephyr_a young man with mixed genetics and ties to not only the Knightfall family but the infamous warrior bloodlines of the Norse Asgardians bringing back a formerly lost branch. Not surprisingly another misadventure of the now infamous womanizer and Knightfall patriarch Jayden along with women known as Venus producing this newest addition to the family. Little is known of Jax's history other than this and he has been less than forward with detailing it for the sake of this document.
Alternative timeline and Universe Incursions
With the inevitable advancement of science and continued evolution of the human race, it was a certainty that eventually a tipping point or event would occur. In order to change certain events, a man holding the family name returned to his past to help reset the troubles of the future. Now in order to prevent any further manipulation of the timeline this section will be brief. The child of a Richard and Selina Knightfall will produce a child who will break the bonds of speed and time itself to return to our present. As his family is currently generations away it seems presumptuous to add them to the codex. But their details are listed in appendices for future reference.
Knightfall's having not just messed with the concept of time and space have also somehow meddled with the fabric of the multiverse. Two such individuals are the displaced Reality M counterparts of @quintus_knightfall and his sister @ashley_knightfall. Their arrival causing further appendices in order to distinguish between them and our own universe versions.
Though this is all that is currently known about the family, the mysteries contained within the hidden years (detailed within the codex) and the absolute truth of all of the families various possible ties and illegitimate children has yet to be brought to light.
