Tropico 5 introduces the concept of the El Presidente's personal Dynasty. Up to 7 family members can be added to the dynasty, each with their own history, trait, and level. Swiss Bank Account funds are used to level up dynasty members' traits.
- Any dynasty member can be a candidate for president in elections and become president.
- Dynasty members can change their clothes and appearance at any time.
- Dynasty members can level up at any time, but the cost significantly increases each time during the same scenario.
- New Dynasty members are gained by playing the game - it's possible to get them from certain quests, usually a new born heir or an heir contest.
- Changes to dynasty members (i.e. new members, dismissing members, level ups) will only be saved after game completion (winning or losing a game, not leaving a game).
- It is possible to permanently lose a dynasty member in certain tasks! For example, they can join the rebels if sent to negotiate and the task fails. Many tasks can be failed with dynasty members (the chance to fail tasks increases with lower level members). This is also applicable in multiplayer games.
