Albany Capp (né Norman) was a single born child to Richard and Anne Norman. He tried his best to make friends when he was a child, but many ignored him as they thought him to be weird. The only real person he made friends with was Cornwall Capp. However, Cornwall wanted wealth and power, but Albany just wanted a family, which made their friendship rocky at best.
Eventually, Contessa Capp called his parents with a proposition: to betroth Albany to her eldest daughter, Goneril Capp. Albany was nervous at first, but found Goneril nice enough. They even fell in love for a time, and they married each other soon after.
After they had their first child, Miranda, Goneril thought that'd be it. After all, a girl was in line to be the heiress to the family fortune. But, Albany wanted a huge family with children. So, reluctantly, Goneril complied, and they also had Hal, Desdemona and Ariel.
- Despite others breaking these two up, I kept them together because, well, Albany is a family man and while Goneril feels a bit pinned down, she does warm up to the family idea eventually.
- I gave Albany the fortune aspiration not because of him being selfish and marrying Goneril for money, but because he wants to prove himself in this career. He was also in Education in his teens.
- I had edited the memories of Albany to suit the timeline. I mean, how can Hal be born first, Desdemona second and Miranda third? And how can you potty train a toddler if they aren't even born as a baby first?
