* ''Literature/{{Galilee}}'':
** Cadmus Geary treats his sons and grandsons as assets in his big business, he doesn't hide the fact that should they push him too far, he'll get rid of them one way or another. Garrisson doesn't take it well.
** Cesaria is of unstable mood and her tantrums have the nasty tendencies of leveling cities and killing lots of innocent people. The childrens are rightfully afraid of her. But they hardly ever flee or say no to her, valuing their life to much for it.
** Nicodemus, an absolute nymphomaniac who cheats on Cesaria with about half the woman on the globe (altough she gladly does the same in return), doesn't shy away from showing off his genitals to his 6 year old daughter, and cares more about his horses than his childrens.

Her dad is another story since he walks out on the family, and [[spoiler: when Bo meets him again he doesn’t make any attempt to help her and lets his new wife kick her out.]]
