House de Bouillon

The following page is a secret brief that is only available to those who are part of the family (or who have gained the information through other channels). It represents a significant investment of IC time and effort. Please do not copy and paste the contents to other players.

With that proviso you may feel free to communicate the information IC using your own words. Of course, your family may not like you spreading their secrets, and if you are caught doing so you may face IC consequences.

Prominent Members

  • Guy Bouillon — Currently working on a juice made from the roots of some of the foodplants in Green Hydroponics. He's got it to the stage where he is fairly sure it is nutritious, and is now attempting to make it palatable.
  • Jean-Phillipe Bouillon — It's true that he does want to take over Green Sector, but what they are trying to keep quiet is that it's because Goodwin is older than he looks and wants to spend a few years with his daughter before retirement. Jean-Phillipe feels he will be best placed to take over.
  • Fleur Bouillon — Fleur is young yet committed. She hopes to marry Lucas Blue, claiming he is not as aloof as he seems, and feels the two of them together could do a lot of good. It is unknown how Lucas feels about this.
  • Marcus Deveraux Bouillon — Marcus is popular with the Children of Earth, but those outside the faction question his sanity. He believes in aliens - is he damaging the name of the family?
  • The Dowager de Bouillon is the name given to a leader among the Children of Earth. The family however does not know exactly who this individual is, though she has proven beyond doubt to be party to family secrets, and sends a birthday card to the head of the family each year. Said to be over 75 and leading a faction of the Children of Earth. She hasn't been seen by her family in over fifteen years. Some family think she should be caught and recycled, but there are those who feel that a slight circumvention of law is a small price to pay for a Bouillon to continue doing good work.
  • Selwin Bouillon - a true hero, she is living in the deepest, darkest regions of Blackout, helping those in need. She has left her name behind for fear of drawing attention, but she is nonetheless in danger every day she stays there.

Internal Debate

A common topic of conversation at the occasional family gatherings is whether the dynasty should reprimand those members who associate themselves with what are euphemistically referred to as “the more anti-consensus factions”. Certain members of the family appear to have difficulty understanding that some acts committed by the more fanatical believers can result in considerable harm to the population at large.

Despite this debate, it has been a long standing family policy that individual members of the family be allowed to act upon their own conscience so long as they act to better humanity as a whole and not themselves individually. It is generally accepted that both Marcus and The Dowager (whomever she may be) are acting, in their own minds at least, in keeping with family philosophy.

Potential Threat

Deuce Bouillon is said to be a ranking member of the Cosa Nostra. There is no definitive proof, but if this is true the view of the family is that the situation cannot be allowed to continue. The Cosa Nostra are thugs of the lowest order and the family name cannot be associated with them. It is widely acknowledged that any revelations as to Deuce's affiliations could be seriously damaging politically, and the other families would jump at the chance to smear the Bouillon name if it meant more of the pie for them.

Family members are encouraged to have a “chat” with Deuce so that this matter is cleared up expediently.

Even more privately, it is mentioned that the Bouillon family is the only one of the three great dynasties to have distanced themselves from the Cosa Nostra, and that perhaps the situation may present an advantage of sorts.
