Wanna join up?

I just wish there was a way to join the Family. Anyone know if that's somehow possible?

  • You can learn their "ways" by asking Vance, but he mentions you can never truly be a part of The Family because you lack the physical attributes needed to drink blood.

This page needs a lot more info, for instance it's not mentioned that they are most easily accessible through Meresti Trainyard and lives in Meresti station, and that you can give Vance Blood Packs after finishing the quest...
Anyone up to elaborating?

Just for Kicks

If you have the Cannibal perk and kill a follower or something inside of the Familes headquaters then eat it in plain sight does the family turn hostile? Seems very hypocritical of them...User: Cornpone

I'll try it, why not? btw, the family turns hostile on you if you hack their terminal on pc also, so i assume its that way for all versions, though its kinda lame cause it seems like a good alternate way to learn some family backstory. -- 09:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)derfthebarbarian

A homage?

Just wonder if anyone else thinks these guys are a slight homage to the vampires from Bethesda's other work OBLIVION? it's the pale skin and are red around the eyes, like a well fed vampire from the game that makes me think it's a nod to the Eldar Scrolls race.--A Pickering 21:06, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

And Oblivion took those vampires from the 'real' ones from myth. - RASICTalk 21:09, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

Oh. These Oblivion references. Sorry Gothemasticator! Nitty Tok. 21:11, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

Now you're getting it.--Gothemasticator 21:14, December 6, 2009 (UTC)
"sorry Goth", "getting it", what did I miss? - RASICTalk 21:25, December 6, 2009 (UTC)
Nothing, really. Nitty and I were just recently hashing out our approach to Oblivion "references." Our talk page discussion briefly spilled over onto here.--Gothemasticator 21:31, December 6, 2009 (UTC)
Ah I see, thanks for telling me. - RASICTalk 21:32, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

I'm Sure that The Family is a Reference to Oblivion's Dark Brotherhood, They call themselves dark brothers and sisters and consider themselves family members, Also The 5 Rules of The Family Links with The 5 Tenets of the Dark Brotherhood here's a link http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Dark_Brotherhood --StealthMatt 19:36, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

Radios in the main entrance (by robert)

I've found, both on PS3 and Xbox 360, that if after talking to robert the first time, and him letting you pass, if you activate either radio in that first area, either the ham radio or the radio with the enclave station on it, robert (and the rest of the family) turns hostile. 19:47, March 18, 2010 (UTC)Tizzard

caps for Blood Packs

If you bring blood packs to Vance (The Family) he will buy them for 15 caps each after the Blood Ties mission is completed.

Yarr, be the bloodsuckers good or evil?

I'm not certain as to whether I should consider these folks evil or not. Sure, after the Lone Wanderer arranges for Arefu to feed them blood so they don't have to murder anymore they don't murder for blood anymore, but before that they certainly did. They refuse to admit that eating corpses and murdering people to drink their blood is evil, but then again, Vance does keep them from murdering people to eat their flesh and eventually, with the L.W.'s assistance, stops their murdering ways altogether. Thoughts, anyone? I ask, of course, because I am not sure which route is appropriate for altruist characters or hideously evil characters (what if I actually decrease the rates of cannibalism? For shame!)
