Country of Origin
This is the official page detailing the Crossbones Family, a large European family that has stretched back to the Reniassance.
There have been several clans (guilds) loyal to the Crossbones Family.
The Shadow Fleet
The first clan used by the Crossbones, it was established by Anthony Crossbones. It was disolved soon after, however.
The Lonesome Drifters was a clan formed by the only non blood Head of Family, Hank Wimbleton. It was the founding group for Hassigos, and pledged full loyalty to the Crossbones Family.
The most recent clan, The Armed Guard, was an elite force ruled by a Lord Marshall apointed by the Head of the Family. It lasted a year of service before its decommission, and inactive state.

The first non-blood Head of Family, Wimbleton created the Caribbean Branch in 1714. He also formed the Lonesome Drifters, and elite unit that followed the Shadow Fleet's steps.
Ryan Crossbones (Ryan)
- Life: 1697 - 1746
- Reign: 1723 - 1736
After Wimbleton died, Ryan became Head of the Family. He granted the destruction of the Lonesome Drifters, a now mutinous group that were attempting to make Hank's Military Commander Head of the Family. He also granted the creation of the Armed Guard clan, under his younger brother, Tyler Crossbones. He left the Caribbean Branch in the stable care of his youngest brother, Johnathan Crossbones, and together, he and Tyler returned to Europe. When he arrived, he and his brother took control of Switzerland, and was crowned "Ryan I". A few years later, in 1736, he was disowned from the family for a conspiracy with Rose Macmorgan to defunct the Family.
- Life: 1701 - 1747
- Reign: 1736 - 1747
Tyler took control of the Family from his disowned brother in 1736, and retained the rank of "Head of Family". He had returned to take control of the Caribbean Branch for a while. When he returned, in 1741, Matthew II had been crowned King of Switzerland. Tyler begun to serve him as Head of Swiss Military. In 1745, Matthew II abdicated the throne. He returned power to the Crossbones Family before settling in his estate in Antama, France. Tyler, as Head of the Family, became King of Switzerland.
David Crossbones (David Yellowfish)
- Life: 1727–present
- Reign: 1747–present
After the death of Tyler in late-1747, David ascended to both the position as King of Switzerland, and Head of the Kroshbon Family. Although his half-brother, Benjamin, and later another half-brother, Alexander, where expected to become the holders of said position, Benjamin was ruled out for his reckless behavior, and Alexander wished to remain a scholar, instead of having a large country to look after. Ambitious, brave, and confident, David is expected to bring the Family back out of the Caribbean (since it's major fall on September 19, 1747) and into Europe. He is credited with gaining the largest province of Switzerland, Korea, and has begun setting up Colonial Korea.
