The di Chimici are a powerful ruling family of Talia, controlling six of the city-states of Talia. The young head of the family, Grand Duke Fabrizio di Chimici, succeeded his father, Niccolo di Chimici, with the intention of fulfilling his father's ambitions of uniting all of Talia under the di Chimici rule. To achieve this end, the di Chimici will stop at nothing to gain power; their control extends to the Church, where the current Pope Lenient VI is also member of the family. They are enemies of the Stravaganti, and Fabrizio has a particular vendetta against Luciano Crinamorte.
