— The family's motto
The Lagois Family (/ləˈgɔɪz/; Spanish: Familia Lagois, pronounced La-goys), sometimes known as the House of Lagois is a very large family that originated from the country of Tropicalis and it's nearby regions. Dating back to as far as the 11th century, the Lagois Family are direct descendants of the first monarch and founder of the Sphenisdean Empire, Pengtivius I.
Consisting of over 30 known generations, the Lagois Family has one of the longest bloodlines in the entire continent, and are nowadays widespread over the Antarctic, although a majority of the family's members are still concentrated in Tropicalis. The fifth and current generation are known for being explorers and adventurers, who have the uncanny habit of getting themselves into trouble, leading to a series of misadventures.
The Lagois Family traces as far back as the early 11th century to Pengtivius I, the first known member of the family and the first monarch of the Sphenisdean Empire who united the many regional factions and colonies together.
According to the earliest records ever found, Pengtivius was said to have a very sympathetic and forgiving personality, and was unnaturally adept at befriending and convincing others. Pengtivius always believed the unity was the answer to most problems, and dedicated himself to bringing the others together. Ever since Pengtivius' reign began, his descendants continued to lead and influence Sphenisdean for many cneturies.
One after another, Pengtivius' descendants would continue to influence the empire, succeeding each other as king of Sphenisdean. Throughout this period, the number of royal family was rather stagnant, and all of their members resided in Sphenisdean.
One of the kings, Pengtivius IX would later be known for switching the official language of the empire as a whole from Latin to Spanish, and requesting the immediate conversion and transition, a decision that would be frowned down upon mostly by the early Latin-speaking Pengstado citizens.
Sphenisdean Civil Wars
This grudge that the Pengstadoans had against the monarchy would eventually fuel the uprising that became the two Sphenisdean Civil Wars, both of which were major drawback for the nation as a whole, resulting in the splitting of the empire into several smaller states and factions, much like in the early beginnings of the country. This forced most of the royal family to scatter themselves across the region, with some of them becoming leaders and sovereigns of some of these new states. With the dissolution of the Sphenisdean Empire, the incumbent monarch, Tomás I, quickly reorganized his military forces and a large number of his citizens, family members included, into the Kingdom of Tropicalis. As a result of the civil war and the Pengstado rebels controlling a large portion of former Sphenisdean Empire territory, the rebel territory became part of the greater Imperial Empire of Sphenisdean.
The Imperial Empire, lead by a penguin named Quintus, began annexing many of the small, defenceless factions around the region, adding to their growing empire. Many of these states, including the ones led by members of the royal family, pledged their allegiance to Tomás the Kingdom of Tropicalis. While a majority of them were annexed, forcing their leaders into custody or exile, some of them became official "protectorates" of the Kingdom, and agreed to merge into their territory. Though the Imperial Empire continued to ignore and neglect the Kingdom throughout this time, they grew increasingly annoyed at the Kingdom voicing its support for these smaller states and converting them into Kingdom territory. Despite this, they avoided confrontation with the Kingdom at all costs, refusing to acknowledge their existence.
The Imperial Empire later crumbled in 1907 as many of the smaller non-Kingdom aligned and unaffiliated states began to support the restoration of the monarchy, seeing their fate at the hands of the Tropicaliber, a resistance movement that supported the return of the monarchy. After the Imperial Empire crumbled, the incumbent leader of the Kingdom, Tomás V, met with the resistance leaders, as well as the leaders of the surviving smaller states. After negotiating and coming to a proper agreement, all of the states merged and the royal family was reinstated as leaders of the newly reunified "Republic of Tropicalis".
The Three Families
At the time of the republic's official creation, Tomás V had three candidates for the newly established position of president - Penguino Lagois I, Antonio Lagoidis and Basiliscus Laguna, his three children (who had all adopted variations of the same surname). Since Penguino Lagois I was already the official heir for the throne during the kingdom era, he automatically assumed the position of president, with Tomás simultaneously abdicating. The two other children, Antonio and Basiliscus, were somewhat envious of this, and turned their backs on each other, setting off to make a name for themselves by starting families and travelling abroad. Ever since their parting of ways, the three held increasingly bitter views of each other, something that would be inherited by some of their descendants, especially by Basiliscus and Antonio's. This resentment would increase in the Lagois Family due to Antonio's descendants facing several accusations about being responsible for Linium Crisis, a near civil war-level uprising in Tropicalis.
Despite all this, all three families, the Lagois Family espeically, had spread out across Antarctica and settled down in other countries and regions, becoming scientists, teachers and business owners. Nowadays, countless family members live all over Antarctica, yet most still live in Tropicalis.

Since Pengitivius I's era, the Lagois Family has been heavily involved in the Tropicalian government and the political world. Most of Pengtivius' sons were kings or rulers of the Sphenisdean Empire or other former states within the local region. As leaders or politicians, they were often regarded as very pivotal figures in Tropicalis' history, helping to mould it and shape it into its current state over the many centuries. They were often responsible for suggesting or introducing major changes to the country such as the adoption and transition to greener energy sources, the rapid modernization of the country, and focusing on general improvements to the military forces. Many of the family's present day members are also politicians or statesmen the country, being governors, mayors, representatives of the country or other jobs of the like.
Besides this, several family members both past and present, have worked as scientists and technologists, taking up roles and jobs in the scientific and technological industries. Basiliscus Laguna, before starting his own family, was a scientist and a technology expert, aiding other scientists in the development of Linium-based technology and developing cleaner energy. Dr. Infinity, otherwise known as Charles Lagois, is a more recent member of the family who works as a scientist.
The Lagois Family is known for owning the Lagois Mansion, a private residence in the upper parts of Tropicapolis, the Tropicalian national capital. The mansion is home to the incumbent president, Penguino Lagois IV, his son Wikipenguino45, the residence's butler and caretaker Dennis Kappa and Terry Van Furry. Moreover, in the residence's history, it has been inhabited by several previous generations of the family, many of whom vacated the residence and moved elsewhere. Among these former inhabitants were the explorer Zephaniah Lagois, Laguna and Lagoidis branch members Basiliscus Laguna and Antonio Lagoidis, and the last king of the Kingdom of Tropicalis, Tomás V.
In addition to the Lagois Mansion, the family owns numerous residences throughout the country, including a manor in Lagois City, which was formerly home to the kings of the Sphenisdean Empire during the city's days as the capital. The family also used to own a castle in the mountains near Lagois City during the Sphenisdean era, named Alcazar Castle, which was later converted into a museum, and has since become a popular tourist attraction.
Relationships with other families
The family is known to share "rivalries" with sister branches of the family, whom they have always had a history of being suspicious of. Due to the three children of Tomás V, (Basiliscus Laguna, Antonio Lagoidis and Penguino Lagois I) parting ways and splitting into three different after Penguino was proclaimed the official heir, there has been some competition between their descendants. The three became somewhat estranged, with Antonio and Basiliscus embarking off on their own journeys with their own ideas in mind. They started their own families, splitting into two different branches named the Lagoidis Family and Laguna Family, respectively.
Their descendants spread out amongst the more northern parts of the continent as well as the Ninja Archipelago, where they would stay for generations, trying to accomplish success and influence in the rest of the world. While some were quite successful in their jobs, founding companies and businesses that eventually flourished, others were not as successful and grew envious of those who were. Some of the Lagois Family members went as far to believe that the Linium Crisis, a dangerous confrontation between the Tropicalian government and a group of rebels over Linium weaponry, was caused by a band of jealous Lagoidis branch members who were looking to exert influence by force and get back at their relatives in the government.
Regardless the somewhat strained and tense relationship between these three families, especially among the older members, a few of the more recent generations of all three families have interacted and kept in touch. These few are mostly on good terms with each other, despite going against their relatives' wishes.
A rivalry also exist between current members of the Lagois Family, more specifically between the descendants of Penguino Lagois II and the rest of the family. Since Penguino Lagois II was the former president of the country, some of his descendants were upset when he was succeeded by his nephew, Penguino Lagois III, due to his son Delphinus refusing the position. Feeling as if they were treated unfair and growing increasingly jealous of this, some of Penguino Lagois II's descendants deliberately alienate themselves with the rest of the family, believing they are the rightful successors. Some of the other Lagois Family members countered and defended Delphinus and his father's decision, sparking a long-lasting resentment between the two sides.
Many of the Lagois Family's members own puffles of all colours, but have only done so for a few generations.
