The Argyris Family
The Oldest and most influential family in all of Heaton, the Argyris Family have always had a seat reserved in Heatons high chairs of power. They started out like any other citizen of the city. As minor business officials. Through their wealth and dealings they have earned such stature and respect. Many tend to dislike individuals of the Argyris Family, calling them sneaky cheats with far too much money. In truth, the head of the family always uses a majority of the family funds to aid the nation of Heaton. As they've done for generations. A hand full of Argyris, mainly distant cousins whom were over privileged by their parents, tend to be excessively lazy and spoiled rotten. This reflects negatively on the Argyris family as a whole because those who despise the family are too quick to assume. But history in Heaton is unbiased and will always remember the Argyris family as a noble, yet still flawed family. After all, they're still human.
