The Felix Family[note 1] was a noble family of the Kingdom of Elphegort, governing the Toragay area as Earls. Following the Lucifenia-Elphegort War, the family was deprived of its noble status and supplanted by the Blankenheim Family. It later married into the Blankenheims to renew its social standing.
At some point, the Felixes were granted a title of nobility in the Kingdom of Elphegort and designated to manage Toragay and its surrounding areas. During Elphegort's war with the Kingdom of Lucifenia, the Lucifenian army captured Earl Felix and deported him to the Yellow Kingdom while the city was used as a military base. Following the war, the Earl was freed and the family was removed from power, replaced by the Blankenheim Family.
Revival and Downfall
Around the turn of the 7th century EC, Dr. Marx Felix became a successful and wealthy doctor in Toragay. While his wife gave birth at their mansion in EC 593, complications arose and both she and the child died. Shortly afterwards, Julia Abelard replaced the dead child with the Clockworker's Doll. Hypnotized into believing the child had come back to life, Marx raised his "daughter" Margarita. Afterwards, Marx arranged for Margarita to become the potential betrothed for the eldest child of the Blankenheim family: Kaspar.
Marquis Kaspar and Margarita married in June, EC 608. On September 18, EC 609, Marx was poisoned by his daughter during dinner at the Blankenheim Mansion and lapsed into a coma at his home later that night. Discovered the next day, Marx was moved to a hospital in Aceid. On October 21, Dr. Felix briefly awoke from his coma before dying of the poison shortly after.
Hell on Earth
After the destruction of the Third Period, all the souls of the dead members of the Felix family residing in the Heavenly Yard were dragged back down to the earth as the ground world merged with the Hellish Yard.
Conceptualization and Origin
- The name Felix is Latin for "happy" or "lucky"; ironically, one of its members, Margarita Blankenheim, was an incarnation of the Demon of Sloth.
