His halfbrother Raja Don Servus(dynastychief 1982-1998.) reactivised the function of dynasty chief again in the Maria worship Larantuka organisation:the "Confreria".They give dignitystick,etc. top Maria and get it back from her before being installed as Raja.One of the acts.This Raja followed in the footsteps of his brother.
