My newest favorite couple and their essentially adopted son! For all the bad rap he got, I still found Murhder to be one of the best Brothers to hang out with. That’s why his is the next family tree I made for The Black Dagger Brotherhood book series by J.R. Ward, even though his book was most recent.
This family tree includes the bloodlines and known relatives/descendants of:
Murhder, Sarah, Natelem, Ingridge
(Psst – you can click to enlarge if you like – pass it on!)
- We don’t know bloodline colors for any of these vampires, so everything is done in dark gray until we get further information.
- I don’t believe that Murhder and Sarah have technically adopted Nate – he’s a bit old, I guess – but he lives with them and they think of him as their kid, so there you go.
- I included Michael (formerly known as Son) from the e-book/novella The Story of Son. There’s no mention of him being related to Murhder, but Michael has red and black hair just like Murhder does. Xhex notes in one book that she has never seen that particular combo on another vampire, so it’s definitely possible that Michael is of the same bloodline.
- How much do I love Murhder? SO MUCH. All we heard about for books and books was that he was completely crazy, and kicked out of the Brotherhood for being a dangerous whackado. Then we finally meet him, and not only does he seem relatively sane, most of the time, but he’s also an effing delight! He’s been mistreated and misunderstood for so long, so now I want nothing but happiness for him and his family.
- Lots of Murhder and Sarah babies, please and thanks.
