The Sonozaki Family is an aristocratic family in Futo who created the organization Museum. When his son Raito died and was reborn as an avatar of the true Gaia Memory, Ryubee used his organization to produce and distribute the Gaia Memories in the criminal underworld, resulting in the Dopants crimewaves as part of a bigger plan to invoke the Gaia Impact. With the exception of Raito and Fumine, they each own special golden Gaia Memories, allowing them to assume Dopant forms with the use of a prototype Gaia Driver belt, preventing the Gaia Memory's corruptive nature. Because they have belts, they are easily identified as "Commanders" by Shotaro and Philip.
In the end, when Ryubee's plan almost succeeds, it results with family estate burning to the ground, marking the end of both its patriarch and the Museum. At the end of the series, when Wakana sacrifices her body to give Philip (Raito) his body back, the family becomes a part of the earth to watch over Philip and tasks him with the family duty to protect Futo and to change the world for the benefit of mankind.
