Traits of the Windebank family
Previous families of Windebank's have been considered a happy bunch. Windebanks are contradictory, imaginative and inteligent. The name is linked with Venus, the planet of happiness. They partake new activities enthusiastically but lack focus, constantly requiring new interests. Flitting from one project to another as apparently purposelessly as a water falling from a fountain. Like children, they demand constant attention, admiration, and effort, throwing tantrums if they dont get what they want. There is a side to Windebanks which can be deeply intelectual, and another, nervous and withdrawn. 32
