Eun-Sook Alighieri (nee Jang)
Relationship with her:
Cashlin was the only child born between her mother and father, not because they didn't want more, but that Eun-Sook couldn't carry any other pregnancy to term. Cashlin loved her mother and all the things that Eun-Sook would teach her growing up. She took a special interest in making sure Cashlin had everything she wanted, and knew about her Eastern heritage as much as her Western roots. Once Warren died, Eun-Sook distanced herself from Cashlin and became more reserved with her affections. Within a year, she married Wren, his brother. This left a bad taste in Cashlin's mouth and she hasn't viewed her mother the same since.
Relationship with him:
Forever the daddy's girl, Cashlin adored being her father's daughter. He kept her safe, showed her how a married couple should treat each other, put Cashlin's expectations unreasonably high for what she would want in a partner. She did everything in her power to make him proud of her. As far as she knew, he died being a good man. The news of her father being a part in a mafia shook her once firm understanding of the man who was her father. These days, the more she learns of her father, the more she sees herself in him. She doesn't always know if it's a good thing.
Relationship with him:
Wren was always on the periphiral of memories to Cashlin. He was at all her birthday parties, small celebrations, Christmas and Easter for as long as she could remember. It was comforting. Having him there when her father died was comforting in the same way a well loved book is comforting. When Cashlin asked for more information, Wren didn't keep it from her. For that, she was grateful. He taught her how to fight, how to shoot, and how to protect herself. He showed her how things worked in Avarice, and never once held back. It did no good to shelter her any more. She's not his biggest fan since he married her mother, but she still goes to him for training.
