Logan's older brother and Greg's grandfather, Ewan Roy is clearly the smartest of the family. He let his brother do all the hard work and now sits on the board of Waystar Royco, collecting a very nice paycheck while living on a ranch in Canada and talking about the evils of capitalism.
3. Siobhan 'Shiv' Roy. As the only daughter, Siobhan "Shiv" Roy oscillates between being her father's favorite child and a thorn in his side. Logan can be the cruelest to her, especially in public and in front of those that matter. Yet in private, he treats her with tenderness and affection.
The youngest child in the Roy family, Shiv possesses natural leadership instincts, but would rather wield her talents in politics.

Roman Roy (Kieran Culkin)
Roman is Logan's youngest child, and while he exudes uninhibited confidence, he's held back by his immaturity. When his father suffers a stroke in season 1, Roman is named interim COO of the company.
Connor Roy (Alan Ruck)
Logan's eldest son from his first marriage, Connor is the half-brother of Kendall, Shiv and Roman.
To top it off, Logan often calls his son “Romulus.” Based on mythology, Romulus was the founder and first ruler of the city of Rome. Logan wishes Roman could be “man” enough to take his place one day.
Marcia calls Shiv, to tell her that Logan can no longer come to her wedding. Claiming that he is too sick. Though they both know it's because Logan and Shiv are in a fight.
The answer: $18 billion—mostly from Roy's 36% stake in Waystar, the publicly traded, $46 billion (market cap) media and entertainment giant he founded in his twenties. The Roy empire also includes at least $345 million in real estate, including Logan Roy's $52 million palatial townhouse on New York's Fifth Avenue.
It's possible that, without a parent who would always be firmly in his corner when he was growing up, Connor's step-mom Caroline (Harriet Walter) poisoned Logan against his first born in order to manipulate things for her children.
1. Ewan Roy. Ewan Roy (James Cromwell) is the smartest Roy for a simple but powerful reason: He stays out of it.
After a few disastrous testimonies (thanks, Tom), Logan decided that the public needed a “blood sacrifice,” someone high up in the company who could take the fall, staving off frightened shareholders.
Iverson Roy is the son of Kendall and Rava Roy, and the younger brother of Sophie Roy. Iverson is likely on the Autism spectrum.
He has four children Connor (Alan Ruck), Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Shiv (Sarah Snook), and Roman (Kieran Culkin). The Roys are fictional but pulled from real life for inspiration. Logan closely resembles Rupert Murdoch, who founded News Corp, given their occupation.
TVLINE | Connor is a bit older than his siblings. It always seems like he's on the outside looking in, somewhere between dad and brother. Does he feel left out? Oh, absolutely. Logan divorced Connor's mother when Connor was about eight years old, and he didn't see his pop for years, actually.
Connor Roy met Willa through Roman Roy when Willa was an escort.
Greg is Logan's lackadaisical great-nephew. Far removed from the Roy family's wealth, he moves to New York to ingratiate himself to Logan and get a stable job within the company.
Logan and Ewan are from Dundee, Scotland and left home at 4 and 5. Logan had a sister named Rose who died. Logan named Rhea Jarrell as his successor to Waystar Royco.
In the episode, the Roys go on a hunting trip in Hungary, but conflict erupts over Logan's controversial plan to acquire a rival news corporation. The episode became notable for "Boar on the Floor," a fictional game that is depicted during the climax.
And in a post-finale interview with EW, Sarah Snook confirmed that while Shiv did see the Tom-Logan exchange, Shiv was hiding from Tom that she was aware of his power move. "In that take, it felt natural, because Tom had closed in with physical proximity," Snook said.
When we last saw her toward the end of Season 2, Marcia had seemingly ended her marriage with Logan because she found out not that he may or may not have been having an affair with Rhea Jarrell, but that he coordinated a plan to pass off the CEO reins to Rhea without Marcia's knowledge.
