Lineage Namesake: In Spanish, a guijarro is akin to a rock, and since I am Spanish and I'm on my way to become a Geologist, what better thing to name my Lineage of cool-ass posing bois?
Backstory: The Guijarruns have never been anything special, mostly specialized in the arts of manufacture and whatnot, they have been a family of artisans and traders up until the Medieval Era, in which one of the Guijarruns became a Knight under the service of the Catholic Kings in the Iberian Peninsula, ultimately gaining the status of Hidalgo for himself...which is literally the lowest kind of novelty there was at that time, but he still gained control of a small village south of Castilla la Mancha, where Murcia is now located. That place had been controlled by the Muslim population for a long time, so cultural exchanges were something normal and the family of the knight saw it as something that was needed to extend their lineage: diversity. They would, around the 17th Century, lose control of the village, keeping their trading posts and comfortable residences in there. And nearing the Victorian era, in the 19th century, the Guijarruns had expanded onwards to become richer through trading on another countries, establishing themselves around the world, although they all knew that Spain was their homeland, no matter where they grew up.
- Alonso Guijarrun - The knight who recieved the property over the village, skilled swordman under the reign of the Catholic Kings over in the 15th century. He died on that same piece of land the Kings gave him.
- Galatea Guijarrun - Widow that ran away from Iberia around the 17th century, due to multiple people attempting against her life when she tried to study and make a name for herself in the science-y fields, taking advantage of the now dying Rennassaince spirit. She hid herself on the Nordlands, now Sweden.
- Ludwig Guijarrun - Bastard son of a East-European soldier, name given to him by his mother, who died when Ludwig was only 16 years old. He decided to invest on trading practices and traveled to Asia, searching for the silk-trading road, in an attempt to restore his family's reputation as traders and artisans. This all happened on the 17th century.
