And here's the introduction:
Hello. I am Jeff Thomas, AKA Pizza-Werewolf. I am a Cahill. My last name is Thomas, but my deceased grandmother was a Cahill. Her last name was Tucker, but she was a Cahill. You see, it’s a long story.
In 1507, my ancestor Gideon Cahill put together a serum that would make you the most powerful person in the world while he was trying to discover a cure for the Black Plague. His “friend” Damien Vesper was jealous of this serum, so he killed Gideon Cahill in a fire. Before this could happen, Gideon passed down parts of the serum to his four children. His eldest, Luke, founder of the Lucians got the political part of the serum. Thomas, founder of the Tomas got the athletic part of the serum. Katherine, founder of the Ekats got the inventive part of the serum. Jane, founder of the Janus got the artistic part of the serum.
Let’s just say, the branches haven’t really been that friendly to each other over the past 500 years. Luke’s brother and sisters blamed him for the fire. After that, all Luke wanted to use his clues for was revenge. Thomas and Katherine were really close until Katherine betrayed Tomas by stealing one of his clues. Ever since then the Ekats and Tomas have been bitter enemies. Thomas and Katherine left Jane behind, so Jane felt betrayed. Unknown to anyone, Olivia Cahill, Gideon Cahill’s wife was pregnant with a fifth child, Madeleine, founder of the Madrigals.
For 500 years, the main purpose of the Madrigals was to keep the clues out of the other branches hands and to try to get the family back together. The Madrigals did whatever they could to make sure nobody found the 39 clues. Over the past 500 years, the other branches have thought of the Madrigals of a deadly group. The Madrigals were really the opposite of that. They were the good guys.
I’m part Tomas and Janus and I’m a member of the Madrigals and the Saladin League (I’ll get to that later). What’s confused me for a while was the fact that I wasn’t athletic at all. The best I could make of it was that I had a birth defect. I’m serious. When you have more than one branch in your DNA, you get the personality of one branch and the talent of the other. The Tomas are stubborn, they never give up, they are animal lovers, and they are brave. I have most of those qualities. The Janus are the artistic branch. I’m not good at visual art, but I’m a good musician. I love music. You can tell by the look of my music teachers when I sing or play my trumpet that they can tell I’m a Janus.
I’ve already been on two or three big missions. There was that one time in 5th grade that I went on a clue hunt around the world trying to put together the serum to make you the most powerful person in the world. I succeeded in finding the ingredients, but I decided not to make the serum in the end because nobody needs that kind of power. I figured that out even if it took me a close tie with death in Tikal by a Vesper.
The Vespers. Scary people if you ask me. Or any sane person. I mean, they’ve tried to kill me how many times? Back in my first year of Junior High, a couple of years after the clue hunt, the Vespers kidnapped 7 members of the Cahill family. They made the leaders of the Cahills, Amy and Dan steal stuff for them. I became a member of the Saladin League, a group devoted to stopping the Vespers. Turns out the Vespers were trying to make a doomsday device. Don’t worry, we’re still here aren’t we. You’re welcome.
The third mission I went on was to find an antidote for the serum. I said that I decided to not put together the serum. Well, back during the fight against the Vespers, I was going through a tough time called the Homecoming dance. I decided to try to put together the serum, but then I changed my mind. Well, a kid at my school got ahold of the serum and he was the most powerful kid in the world. I had to put together an antidote, but turns out he was trying to distract me from a bigger plan. He was going out with a Vesper. When I came back to school, the Vespers were there holding everybody at the school hostage. No one got hurt, thank God (Yes I’m a Christian. That’s one thing you need to learn about me. When I say “Thank God” I literally mean “Thank God”). After that event, I realized how deadly the Cahill life was and I was happy to go back to a normal life.
