The family has a singular controversy in its history. Antonia Claudia Thonnius was always known as a rebel and tomboy. There is a rumour that she helped her father and two older brothers fight off some burglars who broke into their family home. Later her father, Ciuso Thonnius, decided to put her in charge of protecting one of his cargo ships. This turned out to be a disastrous decision because the ship was lost to pirates and everyone expected that Antonia had been killed. Years later she returned having joined the pirates for a while. Her brother Justus has both publicly and privately stated that she had allowed the pirates to capture and destroy the cargo ship so she could go on a grand adventure. Although not disowned by the family she is shunned by her family and other Seven Captain families.
