The Symbols of 10 Great Families

The 10 Great Families (위대한 가문, 偉大한 家門 widaehan gahmoon, "Great Family") are the families formed by the 10 of the Great Warriors who first came into the Tower with Zahard. They are part of the Ruling Class in the Tower and their members are often extremely powerful, blessed with the power of their forefathers. Just as Zahards are considered the Royals, 10 Great Family members are considered the Nobles. [1] Another interesting point about these 10 Great Families is that a few selected daughters of the families tend to have the chance to become a Zahard's Princesses and gain enormous authority in the Tower. The 10 Great Family leaders made a deal with the administrators for true immortality.

Most children of the 10 Families usually live in the "Floating Castles" until they are chosen to become Regulars.[2] Children who are not chosen to climb the Tower settle down in the Middle Area or help around in their family's Floating Castles, although they are discriminated compared to those who come back as Regulars or Rankers.[2] Because of their lineage, most children tends to be more powerful and skilled among the ordinary residents of the Tower. Among the children of the great families, those of direct descendency from the head of the house's own blood is frequently considered gifted, but direct descendants aren't always better.[3] Although children from the 10 Families seem to have bountiful and happy lives on the surface, the competition is fierce among them. Also if they are male, they have a low survival rate (Females have the possibility of becoming a Zahard princess and are thus more valuable) [4]

As the 10 Great Families rule most of the Floors at the Tower, the Middle Area's residents make several altars dedicated to the Ruler of the Floor. Such altars are usually located at the highest point in the region.[2]

Note: If a Family head or house head (가주, 家主 gahjoo) has multiple wives or husbands, then there will be a main family and branch families. The Khun Family, notably, has the most branch families.

Trivia

  • It is possible that the 10 families and Zahard may be inspired by the Greek mythology of Twelve Olympians. SIU stated that Eduan is inspired by Dionysus[5], while Yeon could be inspired by the virgin goddess of the hearth Hestia.
  • It has been indicated that although the 10 Families are aligned with Zahard's Empire, they have the right to refuse to offer assistance, as Khun Maschenny Zahard noted that only the Lo Po Bia Family sent in troops to help them and the rest sent no troops. However, Yasratcha noted it would be strange for them to help regardless.
