Lineage Namesake: Sounds similar to "Romantic" while also having an interesting origin.
Backstory: Originally from the famous Roman Empire, the Romero's were one of many families who swore to reach the holy land of Jerusalem on a pilgrimage of salvation. Many members of the original pilgrimage did not survive the journey, but nonetheless someone of this lineage succeeded in reaching the holy land and cemented their surname in history as a "romero", hence this lineage's blunt name. Over the course of decades the Romeros simply survived within the harsh environment of Jerusalem, tasking themselves with guarding the numerous cemeteries dug for various armies through the Crusades. No matter the side, the cemetery would be guarded by a Romero through thick and thin; granted, this guardianship was made easier due to a gift caused by this lineage's stalwart devotion. Unfortunately, probably due to the unique power granted to the devote Romero lineage, kidnappings were commonplace. For better or for worse, only descendants with devoted hearts could call forth the ancient power gifted long ago.
- Sabella Akoni Primitus Romero - The first true Romero! Upon completing her pilgrimage from Rome to Jerusalem, Sabella posthumously changed her late husband's last name and her own to Romero in order to honor her family's sacrifice. She also gave birth to a son and started to watch over the small cemetery holding her late family's remains.
- Tadeas Romero - The first Romero to be gifted a unique power for his lineage's continued devotion! In thanks for his mighty power, Tadeas ceased his mischievous ways in order to protect the valuable remains of his ancestors. Every descendant sired by Tadeas would continue to be bless with this gift of a power, so long as the descendant showed devotion towards something...regardless of what this 'something' may be.
- Jarak Romero - Despite being kidnapped in his late infancy, Jarak carried on his linage's devote nature and therefore the unique gift. Jarak fought for many armies and survived several wars through the help of his linage's ancient sacrifice. As a twist of fate, Jarak eventually settled down in Rome as a cemetery's warden.
- Agata Romero - Whisked away from Rome by a charming traveler to England, Agata eventually fell upon hard times. As a single mother abandoned by her whimsical lover, Agata devoted herself to her child's needs and started working in a brothel. However, the hard times did not last long, for Agata's son at least; Agata died while a secret lover to an exploration loving Duke. In loving memory of the late Agata, her son was allowed to keep the Romero surname despite being raised as a son by the kind-hearted Duke.
- Pungiglione Wellesley Romero (Victorian Era) - Son of Agata Romero and lover of freedom. Often called himself Lione believing the shortened name meant 'lion' though that is not true. A womanizer through genetics, Lione's mother taught him to, at the very least, never get a woman caught up in his web. Lione has swooned many woman, but never taken them with him on his adventures, just as his mother taught. Traveler and explorer by heart, Lione searches for freedom, adventure, and answers to his ancestry.
Gift of Devotion
Description: Ever since establishing their name within the holy land and looking over their dead ancestors, the Romero lineage has been gifted with the power to become guardians of their devotion! More specifically, the gifted power is the Stand; an apparition born of willpower and, in this case, devotion towards something important. The first sign of devotion forever unlocks the use of a Stand for a Romero descendant which can then be freely summoned whenever needed.

[div align="center"][font size="4"][b]The Soul Cages[/b][/font][/div]
[b]Namesake:[/b] Sting's The Soul Cages Album
[b]Power Type:[/b] Close Range Stand
[b]Appearance:[/b] A two meter large, skinny Stand with a womanly figure wearing light-purple, full-plate armor and a torn, black cape. The Soul Cages' fingers and legs are pointed and relatively sharp to allow for precise movements despite being a bit slow due to the armor. The most noteworthy aesthetic feature is the position of this Stand's head; the Stand is headless and constantly bleeds white liquid. However, the head is not missing - a barely visible face with stark white skin and short hair rests upon the left arm of the Stand, permanently impeding one hand at all times.
[b]Description:[/b] Nothing is able to physically hold back the user of this Stand, The Soul Cages! Through touch, the user of The Soul Cages is able to effortlessly control locks, knots, or any other binding node which would normally require a key or brute force to function. Touching a lock unlocks or locks the lock. Touching rope creates or undoes a knot.
