Aristocrats and criminals have loads in common: they’re both selfish, get bored easy, and have access to vaults of cash they didn’t work honestly to get.

"This family has no shortage of enemies. Our children will inherit all of them. All of the pain and all of the hate that comes with this name. All we can do now is move on from the past and better the future for them."

"Usually, the Jordan impulse is to throw money at a problem and if that doesn't work, then violence."
Amy regarding the family's imprudence with money



The name Jordan is a derivative form of the Hebrew word "yarden", meaning to descend or "to go down." This name is also taken from the river Jordan in the Middle East. At the time of the Crusades it was common practice for crusaders and pilgrims to bring back flasks of water from the river in which John the Baptist had baptized people, including Christ himself, and to use it in the christening of their own children. As a result Jordan has become quite a common personal name.
