The Del Mar vein bleeds far back to roots in rural Mexico, and drove Northward by times of hardship. The immigrant band was large, and opportunistic, latching onto local communities and splintering as they ventured further and further along coastlines until settling, initially, along the eastern coast of the US. Ever so ambitious, Augustine Del Mar splintered off along the way, and stumbled across the trade post of Palisade with a small band of mercenaries.
The youngest family to call Palisade home, the Del Mars took the region by storm - strong numbers of support from neighboring traders alongside their keen business sense drew them to Palisade's fields (and local market). Able and willing to take any steps necessary to achieve their goals, the Del Mar takeover was quick and effective, but messy - an iron grip clutches the outpost to the stark juxtaposition of the unity of the separate factions labeled under the banner of family, something that leader Augustine Del Mar took gravely serious. Warm and amiable, the patriarch of the Del Mar clan spoke softly and kindly, but carried a big stick. His son was no different.
Their attempts at infiltration and assimilation into the Del Cenere Gang was fruitless, and, ultimately, lead to the end of the Del Mar line as it had come to be known.

The Del Mar follow teachings of Catholicism and belief in the Abrahamic God - to an extent. More intensively, they are driven largely by bonds of blood - the Del Mar had historically had large families spanning generations of progeny, and as such, they weigh the value of family quite heavily. This tight-knit bond, however, is often used to justify their often cut-throat mentalities and hardly veiled us-versus-them conduct.
Braithwaite: The Braithwaites and the Del Mar share a similar business acumen and shrewdness - and, after considerable efforts on behalf of the Del Mar family, they eventually tamed the rugged Braithwaites to bring them in line: namely, by enacting violence upon their allies, the Ardoix.
Ardoix: The feud between these two families has been an arduous one - when assimilation failed, the Del Mar dispatched of much of the Ardoix family and beheaded the matriarch, and, to keep the unsteady peace, married off one of their own to the only remaining member.
Courtright: The Ardoix and Braithwaite families had a good eye for security detail, and the Del Mar appreciate the Courtright family as one appreciates an effective tool. When the other two families relinquished power, without a figurehead to fight for, the Courtright fell in line soon after.
Winthrop: Serendipitous - a young man by the name of Boone Winthrop came to Palisade to secure trade for his pack, and revealed the stringent bloodlines that connected them. Manipulating this to their advantage, the Del Mar sought control over the Winthrop family and all they owned.
Del Cenere Gang: The attempted subjugation of the Del Cenere Gang lead to the end of the Del Mar's reign over Palisade, as well the eradication of much of their bloodline.
