BDB Family Tree – Butch, Marissa, Manny, Jo


Have you been wondering, who is Butch’s father in the BDB? How are Butch and Manny related in the Black Dagger Brotherhood? How are Butch, Manny, and Jo connected? What about Butch and Marissa’s relationship? If so, I’ve got a special treat – a real confusing section of the family tree for The Black Dagger Brotherhood book series by J.R. Ward. This one includes the bloodlines and known relatives/descendants of:

Butch, Marissa, Manny, and Jo Early

Please note that this family tree encompasses some of the most confusing and contradictory information throughout the entire series. The information presented about Butch and Manny’s adopted/biological relatives has changed from book to book, so I did the best I could to include all possibilities. Further details below the image!
