We show that a limited range of options for fermion families may be neatly encompassed in a spacetime augmented by five Grassmann internal coordinates if we require that the superfields are self-dual in an 5U(5) sense. Amongst the possibilities is a family of just three standard model generations. We consider the nature of Higgs fields in this formalism and the form of possible gauge symmetries.
