The Justus de Castro Salazar are an old, old Hazat family: one of Saint Emanuel's companions, he was given a castle on Aragon that controlled one of the approaches to Castle Furias. With that, the Marquis de Castro Salazar received a substantial income as one of the Wardens of the Skyways, receiving incomes from ships traveling to Castle Furias, but in starting in 4966 the Castro Salazar family was divided; two twin sons were born, and the marquessate was split, with one son becoming Baron de Castro Salazar, ruling the castle and receiving income as a Warden of the Skyway, while the other becoming Baron de Salazar, with the income from Salazar Town and its lands.
For most of their history, the Castro Salazars and the town Salazars coexisted happily as cousins, but in 4953 an attempt to reunite the two branches of the family in the person of the daughter of the Castro Salazars ended when Ramiro Salazar - heir to Salazar Town - got a bastard on Matilde de Castro Salazar several months before they were to be married. Matilde fled with the child, and instead her younger brother Ferdinand inherited. Ramiro never forgave the Castro Salazars, but he did have his revenge until 4994, when he accused - successfully - Ferdinand's son Rodrigo of allowing through inattention the destruction of the atmosphere generator he was assigned to guard at Jericho. With Ferdinand driven mad and committed to the Oubliette by his cousin Ramiro, Ramiro was able to have himself named Marquis de Salazar with the support of Elena de Castenda, whose niece he had married.
