They were seeking to exploit Dabney's wealth, and when it fell into Sylphide's hands, to exploit her wealth. Their problems, even though hopefully they are nothing like your own the main character's parents are shot right in front of him seem like they could have happened to anyone because the characters' reactions to what happens to them makes so much sense.
