Personal life Edit
Culligan was born in Kinley to a Dutch mother and Irish-American father. His father was a lapsed Catholic and Culligan was baptised, though he stated he lost any faith in his early teens. After completing undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in econometrics at Nobel University, during which time he married fellow student Eleanore Smith, of American-Lovian ancestry, he was awarded a post-doctoral fellowship in the United States. He was awarded a professorship in Lovia in 1970. He and Eleanore had five children: Nicholas (1958), Mortimer (1959), Marvédie (1962), Arthur (1964) and Godmund (1965). Eleanore died in 1972, leaving Brandon with 5 children from the ages of 14 to 7. Ever since, the family has had a housekeeper and a nanny.
In the late 1970s Culligan had a relationship with someone from work, but they chose not to marry and went their own ways in the spring of 1980.
