Vongola Primo & Guardians were the first-generation members and founders of the Vongola Famiglia. The Famiglia initially started as a vigilante group to protect townspeople at the times when the law could not protect them from crimes. This group stands out among the families of the other generations thanks to being made up of individuals from the most diverse backgrounds, including a soldier, a cleric, a member of royalty, and a rival mafioso. This was due to the peculiar character of the first-generation boss, who would welcome anyone that he took a liking to into his Famiglia.
Also known as Vongola Primo, Giotto was the man who was directly responsible for the creation of the Vongola Famiglia. While Giotto had a calm personality and the comprehensive disposition to accept anyone, he also had a strong sense of justice and was known for actively pursuing what he thought was right. This trait led his close friend, Cozarto Simon, suggested for him to create a vigilante group that protected common citizens when he was in his mid teens. Originally an ideal and righteous organization, this group would eventually grow into the mafia Famiglia known as Vongola that even the police couldn't carelessly interfere. The reputation of the Famiglia began to change to that of fearsome mafia Famiglia after Giotto was forced to resign and handed his position to Vongola Secondo, Ricardo.
The first Vongola Boss, Giotto was a skilled combatant, earning him the title of the strongest Vongola Boss in history. He used a pair of gloves that able to turn into a gauntlet in combat and defend himself from attacks with his cloak. In the process of finding a way to end fighting with minimum casualty as possible, he created a technique that capable of freezing Dying Will Flames.
Giotto's childhood friend who later became known as Vongola Primo's right-hand man in the Vongola Famiglia. In the past, he always sided with Giotto's ideas and gave his greatest efforts to support his friends. G. once commented that despite the fact Giotto gave him a lot of trouble by making him go along with his unreasonable acts, he never regretted following his friend. Around the time that he and Giotto started their team of vigilantes, they were asked "what can a bunch of brats possibly accomplish?", motivating them to protect the townspeople to the best of their ability.
He was the first man to take up the title of Storm Guardian of the Vongola Famiglia, and was a skilled fighter in both mid-ranged and close combat. During jobs, he usually made use of guns that he devotedly practiced how to handle. However, when acting on Vongola Primo's personal requests, he instead used the archery set he received from Vongola Primo himself and was never defeated.
Ugetsu Asari was a Japanese man who was a close friend of Vongola Primo, also known as a swordsman that was unrivaled in talent. Surprisingly, Ugetsu never bothered to obtain a sword of his own, instead devoting himself to his love for music and becoming a skilled player of the flute. However, when he heard that his foreign friend, Vongola Primo, was in danger, Ugetsu didn't hesitate to sell the instruments that he prized more than his life in order to pay for the weapons and travel expenses he needed to go to help Primo.
The first man to take up the title of Rain Guardian of the Vongola Famiglia, Ugetsu Asari had a friendly and easy-going personality. He also spoke in a very polite form of speech and wore clothes that would usually belong to a man of high status in Japan of his time.
Knuckle was a Catholic priest that hid a dark past under his friendly appearance. In the past, he was once an undefeated boxer who wished for the title of the strongest. However, his excessive strength caused him to kill an opponent by accident during a match. Filled with regret, he sealed away his fists, never again stepping inside a ring, and sought repentance by working to serve God. At one time however, during a moment of crisis for the Vongola Famiglia, he gave himself a time-limit of three minutes and saved the Famiglia with his fists.
The first man to take up the title of Sun Guardian of the Vongola Famiglia, his speech is just like how Ryohei likes to invoke the word "極限" (reads as "kyokugen" and roughly translates as "extreme"), Knuckle too repeated the word "究極" (reads as "kyuukyoku" and translates as "ultimate") quite often.
Alaude was a solitary individual who once stood at the top of the secret intelligence service of a certain country and the founder of CEDEF, thus make him the first Vongola External Advisor. However, he liked to remain alone without indulging to others and never kept his pace with the rest of the Famiglia. However, it has been said that on the occasion when Vongola Primo's justice overlapped with his own, Alaude defeated more enemies than anybody else and was more considerate towards his allies than anybody else.
He was the first man to take up the title of Cloud Guardian of the Vongola Famiglia and known the strongest Guardian, similarly to how Hibari doesn't like when people get into groups and also known to be the strongest Guardian of 10th Generation Vongola Famiglia, Alaude too disliked associating himself with others due to feeling bound. That being said, he was a serious character that acknowledged his responsibilities as a Vongola Guardian.
Lampo was the young son of a land proprietor who was arrogant and spoiled to a fault. He was once described as being ignorant about human society. He has the bad habit of glorifying himself and looking down on others and wants people to go along with his selfish desires. That being said, he seems to respect Vongola Primo to the point of being unable to defy or refuse a request from him.
The first man to take up the title of Lightning Guardian of the Vongola Famiglia, he has a cowardly nature in a way similar to the young Lambo. Still, he is surprisingly strong and on one occasion Primo entrusted the role of leading the frontlines during a battle.
Daemon Spade was an aristocrat who detested his own heritage, for he felt that aristocrats had no social standing and were worthless. He joined Vongola after his lover, Elena, introduced him to Vongola Primo, and since then, he dedicated himself to the Famiglia to protect the weak and defenseless people. However, after Elena's death, he became the most shady character among the members of the first generation family. His beliefs and motivations changed to a complete mismatch with the rest and his loyalty is dubious at best. His creed is that the Vongola should be a heartless organization that subjugates everything with force in order to properly lead the mafia world. He destroyed anything and anyone that could have weakened the Vongola behind Primo's back. He betrayed Vongola Primo and forced his resignation from the position of boss. Afterwards, he was the only one to remain behind in the Vongola and eventually became Vongola Secondo's Mist Guardian. Still, Primo continued to hold Daemon dear as one of his Guardians and Daemon himself secretly still treasured his bond with Primo and the other Guardians, as he never let go of the pocket watch that proved their friendship.
Daemon was the first man to take up the title of Mist Guardian of the Vongola Famiglia and so far the only one known to maintain the position of Guardian for two generations in a row. He was already an infamous individual by the time of the formation of the Vongola Famiglia. There was a rumor that those who Daemon glared at with his monocle would be cursed and appeared floating on the sea in the next day.
