Cao Family - Kemite Humans - Traders from Zinn'Sunn

 

Description: The Cao family is in service of Clan Phoenix in Zinn’Sunn, trading and buying silk and cotton fabric for them. Once quite wealthy, they have recently had financial problems because of the corrupt officials of Clan Kirin where they turned at to borrow money. Confronted with immediate danger for his family, Hu Cao sent his seven daughters and little son away to keep them safe. They are now spread around the whole Kingdom while Hu, his wives and his heir remain in Zinn’Sunn. Detailed information can be found here.

Races: Kemite Humans (other humans and half-elves acceptable, but only with a reasonable backstory)

Family Slots Open:
  • sisters (Lijuan has the closest relationship with Mengmeng and Meili)
  • brothers
  • the second and third wife of the patriarch (both in her fourties, though)
  • in theory cousins, aunts and uncles, but Lijuan’s branch keeps little contact with them
I’d prefer to let Lijuan’s parents stay NPCs, so Hu Cao and Yu Xin aren’t open.

Family Originates From: Zinn’Sunn, but daughters and Xiaolong are living all over the Kingdom (since Winter, Era XVI pf)

Current Members: Lijuan Cao, Meili Cao

Available Adoptable Members: and their relation with Lijuan
  • – second wife of Hu Cao, 40-something
  • Xiaohua – third wife of Hu Cao, late 30s to early 40s
  • Mengmeng – sister, second daughter of Yu Xin, twin of Meili, under 20
  • Tian – half-brother, son of , heir of the Cao family, any age
  • Feng – half-sister, daughter of , any age
  • Rania – half-sister, first daughter of Xiaohua, 10 to 15
  • Jia – half-sister, second daughter of Xiaohua, 10 to 15
  • Xiaolong – half-brother, first son of Xiaohua, 10 to 15
  • many more that aren't established yet, so feel free to suggest new ideas!

Thanks for joining and welcome to the Cao family, Meili!

This request is still open though, so whoever else wants to join, don't be shy and talk about your ideas with me. This family is extensive, so there are many slots open and more than enough room for original concepts.

Would it be ok if I'm taller than you? Lijuan is at a very petite height just below 5 foot and I wanted Meili to be at least at an average of 5'4", but I know that Lijuan is the older sister.

I'm impressed, I didn't think Lijuan was actually of that Cao family. I've met some of your relatives ICly.

Meili - That's absolutely okay. Lijuan isn't designed to be very tall, but 5'4'' fits a "warrior/assassin" (?) woman very well, even if she's Kemite.

Vanderlou - Really? I'm not sure if you mean the Cao family I'm talking about. I just created Lijuan's relatives without any particular inspiration. She isn't related to any of the former PCs of Zinn'Sunn. At least not deliberately. The only members are Lijuan and Meili.

Which PC or NPC did you mean anyway?

Well... I'm not certain, is Lijuan related to the Cao criminal syndicate? Or was it a family? I'm not even certain anymore, but those Cao NPC were the ones my PC met along with another PC, Satsumaiha. Judging from your reaction though I have to assume you're not related to them at all.

A crime syndicate? I have just made myself part of a crime syndicate without knowing? Oh dear me.

Haha, no, I didn't create her with the intention of being related to the ZS underground! I remember reading a thread that might be what you speak of, but I certainly didn't choose the same surname deliberately. Would be difficult to play a crime syndicate when the family patron was cheated by Kirin clan members ... or maybe not, but he's still an honorable man!

Of course, Meili is free to found some kind of ZS resistance when she wanders back. :P

Sorry for the delayed reply. I was on vacation without internet.

Jian, I'd say it's possible, although I didn't spend much thought on it until now. It would be an interesting possibility. If you have an idea about how that would work, please shoot me a PM!

This family is open for new members again! I'm back to full activity and would be pleased to have a few other Caos to play with.

As a note, it is not required of you to pick the names and ages that are enlisted here. We can discuss any changes about those two details you'd like to make. The above family tree is just some kind of basic outline I came up with to give the family some substance.
