Meet the Family –
Clovis's eyes widened in disbelief as he took in the place where he was going to be sleeping in. There was practically nothing in it. The chamber was approximately 10 foot X 10 foot and had a foldable bunk that was currently pushed up against the far wall. Adjacent to the bunk was a small bathroom, which consisted of a toilet, a shower stall and a sink. Illumination was provided by small lit panels on the ceiling. Near the bunk, was a communications console and screen on the wall that also doubles as a TV. There was a closet opposite to the bunk, but other than that, there was nothing special or fancy about his new quarters. In fact, it was about as simple as one could get for living arrangements.
"This is where you'll be sleeping in till we get to Pendragon," Tina said to her cousin when she showed him his sleeping quarters inside the Shagohod. "I know what you're thinking it's not what you're use to but this giant tank isn't made to be a liner you know. Just be glad you don't have to bunk with three other roommates. I'm sharing mine with my sisters you know."
"Oh, I see," Clovis said as he enters the room with his bag. He's glad that he listen to his uncle in only bringing what he needs for the trip. Bartley had wanted to have some of his soldiers go with him but he said that his uncle has everything at hand and he'll be safe. He had heard of the private security company the FROGS which is made up of women only who guards Hat Inc's investments. From what he has overheard of soldiers talking about them, is that they're just as well trained and equip as any of the Britannia arm forces in some cases they were even better.
"When you get hungry just follow the signs to the mess hall," Tina said.
"Mess hall?" Clovis ask.
"Well it's good enough for the rest of us," Tina said closing the door behind her.
Taking a seat on the bed Clovis mutters to himself. "This moving fortress is more powerful then anything I have ever seen. Uncle is this grand display of power just to show father where he stands? Or is it something else?"
A few days later -
"Sir a giant moving fortress has just been spotted off the coast," a officer reported to Schneizel as he and his other siblings were enjoying some mid-day tea.
"There's no need to worry it's just uncle," Schneizel said in a calm voice dismissing the officer from the room.
"I can't wait to see the fortress," Carline said drooling over the largest weapon she had ever seen before.
"Why can't uncle just fly here instead of driving that thing here?" Guinevere signed.
"He wouldn't be our uncle then," Euphie said as she likes how her uncle is as she doesn't like how uptight the upper classes are.
"Schneizel how much have Lelouch and Nunnally change?" Cornelia ask.
"Lelouch from what I have seen thanks to all the heavy work he has done in the junkyard isn't the weakling he was before. Nunnally is the same more or less but is more sure of herself and doesn't like to be helped when she can do something," Schneizel said.
"That's good to hear," Odysseus said as he turns to his sisters. "I hope that all of you are ready for uncle when he gets here."
"Yes, I'm wearing shorts under my dress," Euphie said as she quickly learned to wear something under her dress whenever her uncle greeted her. More then once she and her sisters had flashed their underwear when their uncle threw them up into the air.
"It be fun," Carline said as she loves being thrown into the air.
"Why can't uncle be too weak in his old age to do that kids stuff," Guinevere said placing a hand on her forehead.
"Why isn't it fun?" a voice behind her ask.
"No it isn't," Guinevere answers then blinks as she and her siblings are the only ones in the room.
"How did you get here?" Schneizel ask his voice alarmed. In the room with them was their cousin Mack.
"Did what?" Mack ask now behind Schneizel's chair.
"How did you do that?" Odysseus ask as one second he was behind Guinevere and then the next he's behind Schneizel.
"Do what?" Mack ask now behind Odysseus.
"Why are you here?" Cornelia ask seeing it was pointless in asking him how he jump from one side of the room to the other.
"Just here to see if everyone in the family is here," Mack smiled.
"How did you get in here?" Schneizel ask knowing that the palace isn't a place that people can just enter.
"That of course is a secret," Mack answers smiling. All of his cousins in the room gave him a odd look, all wondering how much of his act is just acting.
"Well it's good to finally meet one of our cousins," Odysseus greeted him.
"Ah Odysseus it's nice to finally see you in person," Mack smiled as he suddenly appears standing on top of the chair Odysseus is standing on bending over with his face upside down as said person is staring back.
"Uh why are you looking at me like that?" Odysseus ask very uneasy with his cousins.
"Just seeing why dad favors you to take the throne," Mack giggles. "We already knows that many nobles are already going to be seeking my family's favor as many of you are also going to do. Getting the backing of a Hat would give any of you much power both in the courts and battlefields. But since me and the rest of the family don't care for uncle, along with all of you being his kids, all of you are going to have to prove that you're worth backing. And don't even think about forcing us. We are from the true heir of the throne after all, while the rest of you are from the all bark and no bite side."
"And what do you mean by that?" Cornelia ask.
"That you without those giant robot frames or troops to command that you're all bark Corny," Mack giggles as all the royal siblings stared at horror at what Mack had just said.
"YOU DIED!" Cornelia shouted drawing her sword. She always hated being called that name as the only ones who ever greeted her like that were her uncle, and her younger siblings when they were too young to know what that word meant which their uncle always got them to start using it.
Mack started launching as he leaps from his spot on Odysseus chair and landed in an open area of the room. "Well what are you waiting for Corny?" Mack ask.
"No!" Schneizel shouted as his sister charged at Mack.
Everyone watched as the two fought and as quickly as it began it was over. Mack was left standing as Cornelia was now on the floor all tied up with rope. Even with them sitting right there in the room and watched the whole thing they still couldn't believe how someone with their limbs all bond is able to tie someone else up.
Laughing Mack said. "Please remember that, I'm a Hat not to mention your uncles child. I'm much stronger then you and more skilled as well."
Gilford and Darlton burst into the room hearing the noise of a fight inside. They both saw Mack standing over the body of Cornelia bond in rope. They both quickly reacted and pulled out their firer arms, taking aim at the unknown figure. Their gun arms were grabbed by powerful hand and with a painful twist they drop their guns. Without any effort the man between them threw both of them with one arm each across the room, both landing a few feet from Cornelia. Both looking up to the man who through them, was Drake the oldest of the children of Jefferson di Britannia.
"If you two are her knights, then there's much room for improvements," Drake said coldly. "I could have killed everyone in this room before anyone outside knew what's happening inside."
"Gilford, Darlton meet my cousins, Mack and Drake," Schneizel said not wanting them to try to attack Drake again. He wouldn't say it but whenever he's in front of Drake, he feels like something dark is sliding up his back.
"These two our your cousins?" Gilford ask as he crawls over to Cornelia and begins to untie her.
"Since they are your uncle's children that's not a surprise," Darlton said having met Jeffro many times in the past.
"You're Drake?" Odysseus spoke up.
"Yes," Drake said staring at his cousin. "You need some improvements but you are the best choice for the throne of uncle's children. Besides Lelouch and Nunnally since both of them had grown up under our care, the rest of you have to prove yourselves to us."
"Prove ourselves?" Guinevere ask.
"Yes prove yourself that you're more then uncles children," Drake said.
"What do you mean by that?" Carline ask wondering what he means.
"That's all, I have to say," Drake said taking his leave from the room.
"Mack, what did her mean by that?" Odysseus ask but found he's gone as well. "How does he do that?"
"It's better not to ask," Schneizel said. "Before the others get here better make sure that you stay on Drake's good side. From what I have seen during my visit, Drake is all business."
"He gave me the chills," Carline said holding herself.
"And he's very skilled," Gilford said helping Cornelia up. "I didn't even feel him till he grab my arm."
"He just seem to appear out of nowhere," Guinevere said having watch everything, Drake had suddenly just appeared out of thin air.
"Are all of uncles children like them?" Euphie ask.
"Just wait till you meet the rest of the family," Schneizel said. (1)
Later in the grand hall -
Emperor Charles di Britannia steps into the grand ball room holding the royal banquet, the room is crowded with nobles each wanting to get close to the new power in the royal family. Word of his brother being the founder and CEO of Hat Inc had spread fast in the courts, now like jackal's the nobles are getting ready to do all that they could to get on the good side of his brother or his family. Scanning the room he saw that his children were shattered around the room with one of their cousins, chattering up getting to know each other. Odysseus was with Drake by themselves as the aura of darkness coming from Drake caused the nobles to look elsewhere to make connections with the Hat's. Schneizel and Annabelle were surrounded by nobles as they watch the two play a chess match, from the look on Schneizel's face he was losing his cool with each move he made with him losing. While Annabelle was smiling as she made it look so easy. Mack was poking fun at Guinevere much to the amusement of the other guests. Cornelia was with Tina, both finding common ground in warfare. Clovis was with Brutis who was easy to spot even in this crowd. Molly is with Carline who is asking her younger cousin about the moving fortress she had design herself. Lelouch, his sisters Nunnally and Euphie were with Emily at a table eating, the three girls were chatting while Lelouch was picking at his meal adding his output now and then. The rest of his children were with their own crowds. (1)
"You're in my way," Jeffro said as he pushes Charles out of his way as he and his wife Shasti made their entrance.
"Brother," Charles growls glaring at his brother.
"Come now," Jeffro said looking over his shoulder. "You know that, I don't respect you or care for you in any way. Beside's the only reason you're emperor is because, I allowed you to be."
"I see you're still the same," Charles said.
"And you're still the same brat, you always had to order others around since you could never get your hands dirty," Jeffro said back.
"If you weren't so lazy you might have taken the throne as you were suppose to," Charles said.
"I wanted to see who you really are by giving you unexpected power. You never know who a person really is till you have given them power they wouldn't have gotten any other way. And sadly you are who I always thought you to be," Jeffro said walking off with his wife at his side.
Jeffro made himself known when he grabs Cornelia who's the closest to him and began tossing her up into the air. This caught everyone's attention as they were all treated to the sight of the normally calm warrior princess shouting for her uncle to stop throwing her into the air. All the royal children of Charles began backing away from the scene as they knew that their uncle once he's done with his greeting with Cornelia, would be seeking the closest one of them to greet next.
"Uncle stop this at once!" Cornelia shouted as she was toss into the air. It was something that she would think unwise afterwards as on the free fall she landed on her rear.
"You're right Corny," Jeffro smiled at her. "I'm not as young as I use to be or you're heavier then I remember you."
"UNCLE!" Cornelia shouted for her uncle using that name in front of everyone and for calling her fat.
"Ah Odysseus it's good to see you," Jeffro said walking up to Odysseus and instead of tossing him up into the air her gave him instead a friendly hug.
"He gets a hug while, I get toss," Cornelia mumbles to herself as she was help to her feet by Tina and paying to no mind of her sore behind.
"Well just be glad that your ride is over with," Tina said as she watches her father go from one of her cousins to the next tossing them into the air.
"Dear," Shasti said as she waited till her had greeted all of his brother's children. He was currently tossing Euphie into the air. "It's time."
"Oh right," Jeffro said catching Euphie.
"Time for what?" Euphie ask.
"Time for a family picture since it be awhile before all of you kids are in the same room," Jeffro said holding a camera.
"Family picture?" Schneizel ask.
"Yup family picture," Brutis said as he picks Schneizel up and places him in the spot his dad wanted to take the picture. Then he repeated the action with all of the other royal family gathering all of them into one spot.
"All right all the tall ones in the back and shortest in front," Jeffro shouted to the mass. All the royal children got into their places with Brutis the biggest in the back with Emily and Molly sitting on his shoulders. "That's good hold still."
"Wait," Jeffro said taking the len's cap off. "Okay ley's do it again."
"Well uncle hasn't change," Guinevere said remembering all too well of things like this happening.
"There got it," Jeffro smiled. "A picture with all the youngest royal family members."
"Uncle?" Carline ask.
"Yes?" Jeffro answers.
"Why is Brutis so big?" she ask. Asking the question that many of the people in the room have been wondering.
"It's the curse of having so much inbreeding in the noble families," Shasti said earning her a few glares from the nobles. "It's no secret that with so many noble families being related to each other that inbreeding causes problems. The gene that tells how big a person can grow is much higher in, Brutis thanks to Jeffro's blood. That makes three royal family members that have been affected by inbreeding."
"Three?" Odysseus ask as he and the other people in the room look towards Charles, who looks at his brother.
"Yes little brother, I told her about our two remaining siblings," Jeffro said to the shock of everyone as they all thought that he and his brother were the only remaining members of their generation.
The doors open again as a hulking, gargantuan, and intimidating looking beast of a man came in carrying a small child, came in. While the man was dress in fine clothes, his body was bloated with a mix of fat and muscle, that left his body looking like a sagging water balloon. He was bald but for a few pieces of hair that clung to his skull, the rest of his body was misshapen, as if someone didn't know when to quite stuffing a doll. The child was also dress in fine clothes and had bleach blonde hair that almost reached to the ground.
"Kids say hello to your uncles," Jeffro said as the hulk of a man placed the child down on the floor. "The big guy is, Ben and the little one is, Victor."
"Bro, bro," the hulking man name Ben shouted out as he embraced Charles lifting him up into the air hugging him.
"You know, I don't like this," the child growled at Jeffro.
"Now little brother in more ways then one. You should make yourself known, you and Ben, shouldn't hide," Jeffro said.
"Uncle these two our uncles?" Schneizel ask as he and the rest of the family who hadn't met the hidden royal family members, as well as the rest of the guest.
"You brother they are," Odysseus said as Jeffro had taken him when he was younger to meet his uncle Ben. Who was still hugging his father who is trying to free himself. "Since both of them are deform from birth they were kept behind lock doors."
"Yeah it's just my luck that, I be the one who got the gene that cause people of noble blood to be deform," Brutis said. "But on the other hand, I do enjoy being bigger then everyone else."
"Which is the reason why, I don't want you kids to marry into old noble bloodlines as the chances of your kids ending up like your two uncles. Ben as you can see is very deform not only in body but still has the mind of a child. While Victor here has the mind of an adult in the body of a child," Jeffro said.
"Which is the reason why neither of us didn't have to worry about being killed for the throne as being as we are we couldn't be in line for it," Victor said as he watches his younger brother finally freed himself from their younger brother's hold.
"Jeffro why did you do this you know that we all agreed to keep this in the family," Charles said regaining control over himself.
"While since everyone knows about Brutis, I thought it be good to see that he's not the only one who was born different thanks to the inbreeding of our family bloodline. The best thing you did was taking Marianne as one of your consorts. Having fresh blood in the family helps to keep the royal family from becoming a family of inbreeded rednecks," Jeffro said causing many of the nobles to glare at him. While making the rest of the royal family to rethink about who they would marry. (2)
Author's Notes –
1 – Does anyone know the names of all the children of Emperor Charles di Britannia?
2 - Since noble families do intermarry with each other V.V. or Victor in my fic, Ben and Brutis would happen every now and then. Yes I know V.V. is like he is because of his power but he can just pass it off as being deform thanks to inbreeding.
