Among the more famous members were Lord Gavin Zosimus, who was not only a prolific Council member, but also a war hero and one of the original followers of the prophet Vor. His daughter Laura married King Aldous.
Since the death of Gavin in the War of Succession, the family's property now belongs to the crown. Because he sided with the traitor Claudius, his son William was pressed into military service and is presumed dead. His wife Melissa's fate is unknown, but she was given to his soldiers to do with as they pleased. The family survives through Laura's children Richard and Eleanor.
