Gabriele and Regina decide that it is time to move on, and Adella and Antony are given new identities with which to start a new life. Angelo, now 20, takes over the family business with his younger brother as their parents "travel abroad to make more contacts for the business."
Their new identities purchase one of the shipping vessels from the Parodis, chartered a crew and sail to Sardinia. Once on the island, Alda and Alfonso Giordano (their new identities) start to set up shop once again using the purchased ship as their first source of revenue, hiring it out to other merchants for shipments while they proceeded to establish their own shipping business.
Three months after they have settled, Gabriele and Regina send a message back to the sons in Genoa telling of their parents tragic illness and evental passing. Along with the letter, the Regnants send a considerable inheritance and their parents wishes that their sons continue in the tradition of their family and that they might pass it to their sons after them. Under their new identities, they continue to do business with and keeping tabs on the business in Genoa.
In Sardinia, the quartet helped to establish a few local merchants, mostly goat cheese and wool. After 5 years, they hire a few locals and begin the work to keep the business running after they leave. They establish a reputation as good suppliers of local merchandise in a timely manner. Business wasn't booming here, but it was good enough to keep them around for 12 years. Again they begin a few years before with forged documents to establish new identities with a good trade history. When they move on, they use both their previous identities and their sons business as references to establish themselves once again.
Adella begins keeping careful track of their business dealings in private journals that she keeps with her throughout the years.
While her religion had always been important to Adella, her devotion to her "angels" soon comes to override her devotion to anything else, her God or her husband. While she still practices Catholicism outwardly, she feels she practises something higher, worship of God through direct service to his angels.
Gabriele she believes to be the earthly incarnation of the archangel himself and treats him as such. Regina, his consort, is revered as well, though less so than her beloved Gabriele (her Regnant, Daeva Lancea Sanctum). She serves him above all others.
Now out of his own business, it become clear that Antony's success was laregly due to his already successful family and assisted by the determination of his wife. While he runs the shop on his own, Adalina works the books to their advantage, supervises shipments and plans their next move. She shows an aptitude for manipulation and dealmaking when he husband is out of the shop and she takes over the show. She makes several lucrative deals with local merchants and crew members for their ships, much to the chargrin of her husband.
Her regnants notice, and she notices that they do. Adella secretly delights in the fact that they seem to prefer her to her husband. Subtly she begins taking more control over the business, trying to make it run smoothly and more efficiently.
At this time, both Adella and Antony were expected to be able to defend their regnants while they slept. Adella hired a local to teach Antony more technique, which he then passed on to Adella. Together they became capable, if unrefined, defenders of their holdings. Throughout the years abroad, Adella continued to seek out training for Antony so that the could both learn. After 50 years of training on and off, both were rather formidable.
