Tatianolishka

Name: Emily Brighton

House: Haversham Manor

Gender: F

Age: 17

Weight: 108

Height: 5'2

Hair Color: Brown-red

Eye Color: Blue

Physical Description: She isn't the most beautiful girl in the Haversham house - she looks quite homely and doesn't seem to go out much. Short and of an average weight, she takes care to keep her looks in check to please her mother. She has long pianist fingers, big blue eyes and a sunny smile when she allows it. She keeps her hair back in a simple bun, adding some flowers or beads when she goes out, and wears her own hand-sewn dresses. She tries to keep up with the styles, but usually resorts to her own preferences with a higher neckline and longer sleeves.

Personality: Very shy and quite timid around strangers, her perception of society's high energy and gossipy nature keeps her from joining them. She prefers to sit in the corner and watch, or play the piano at a dance. To make up for her lack of social skills, she has learned to play several instruments including the viola, organ, pianoforte and flute. She even sings in a mid-soprano. She adores her family, even with their flaws, and will stick up for them, especially Johanna. She will grow attached to people she is close to, such as her sisters or older friends. Her relationships with her family differ from person to person - she obeys her mother out of fear of losing touch with her, he respects her distant father and loves him as a father. With her sisters she is more of a mothering figure, wishing them to make their own choices but to keep them in check. When she loves, she loves very deeply.

Background: Born in London, Emily was the first daughter (second child) of Christopher and Tatiana Brighton. The family lived in a small house there for several years until Christopher inherited Haversham Manor from an aunt. The family moved there and soon after Johanna and May were born. Emily's friend Louisa, with whom she shared a governess, married her brother Aaron and became Mrs. Louisa Brighton. The pair moved out and Emmy, whose brother was her greatest companion, felt lonely and soon turned to her lavish younger sister for companionship. The two share a bond, but Emmy is the more serious one and makes sure that her sister behaves. Her father now owns a firm in London and makes an annual income of almost 6000 pounds a year.

Emmy made the aquaintance of Mr. Daniel Durst in the summer of 1814, when his employers (the Roland family) moved to Cuthbert Castle. The two took an immediate liking for each other and became engaged later that fall. They were married February 1st, 1815.

Social class (nobility, upper, comfortable middle, etc.): Upper middle-class.

Notable relationships: father Christopher, mother Tatiana, brother Aaron, sisters Johanna and May. Husband Daniel Durst. Friends Cassie Roland and Cecy .

DaCivilWarBear

Name: Helen Esada (nee Ducansby)

House: Windermere House

Gender: Female

Age: 25

Weight: 160

Height: 5'6"

Hair Color: dark blonde

Eye Color: dark grey

Physical Description: Helen is short and pleasingly plump, with rosy cheeks and a warm smile. She's not all that pretty, but she makes up for her plainness by the pure gentleness in her face. Her hands are soft and white, and her smile is comely.

Personality: Helen is the sweetest girl ever to grace the Promenade. She is in danger of spinsterhood, but all she can think of is caring for her little nieces and nephews and keeping her father company in his old age. She wouldn't hurt a fly, though she has a secret mischievous streak that occasionally comes out. As much as she tries to deny it, she sings like an angel, and can play the pianoforte nearly as well.

Background: Helen is the daughter of Sir Cuthbert Ducansby and Eleanor Langland, the youngest of 6 children. Sir Cuthbert was knighted in 1779 for reasons since forgotten, but her family history is rich with lords and battle heroes. Her 4 brothers are, respectively, a naval officer, a clergyman, a court physician, and a lawyer in France. Her sister Mary was married in 1810.

In 1807, a rogue under an assumed name attempted to convince Helen to elope with him, but she was so naive to his advances that he gave up after a while and stole her favorite riding pony.

Eleanor Ducansby died in 1799. Helen was forced into marriage with Juan Esada in 1814.

Social class (nobility, upper, comfortable middle, etc.): Upper

Notable relationships: Was seduced by Ed "Daggers" Mitchell, a highwayman under the name of Edward Grimm. Her virtue was spared, however. Juan Esada (husband).

DaCivilWarBear

Name: Mr. Hugh Edmund

House: Carnwath Hall

Gender: Male

Age: 29 (born May 4, 1785)

Weight: 174

Height: 6'3"

Hair Color: dark brown

Eye Color: a shade of blue that tends somewhat towards green

Physical Description: Mr. Edmund is a handsome young bachelor with a striking aquiline nose and eyebrows that usually peak downwards in a forbidding way. He has the ability to grow a thick and dark beard, but the only hint of that is the light shadow that sometimes shows on his cheeks when he's tired. He is tall and fit. He tends to look uncomfortable in formal settings, but to catch a glimpse of the elusive genuine smile is to see a beautiful thing. He is most at ease in natural settings, and doesn't mind getting wet with dew or rain. In fact, he looks all the handsomer (and sexier!) for it.

Personality: Mr. Edmund is a tender-hearted man, but a long estrangement from his brothers and father have caused him to withdraw into himself and appear forbidding and crotchety. He loves animals, and always takes excellent care of his horses and hounds. His brand of humor is a rather exclusive one, meaning that it appears irreverent and mean-spirited to many, despite the fact that it is just witty and sarcastic. As he loves his work and therefore throws himself into it, he tends to become very lawyer-like on occasion, though unwittingly. He absolutely despises being idle.

Background: Mr. Edmund, also known as the younger Lord Edmund, moved into Carnwath Hall in late 1813, after making his fortune being a lawyer for a duke. Having decided to be a lawyer and showing great promise in that area at a young age, he graduated from Oxford in early 1805 at the age of twenty, despite being the eldest son of a wealthy lord in the far north of Britain (Cotswold-on-Wold) and therefore having a sizable inheritance, with land and a title, assured him. But a political disagreement with his brothers and father caused him to flee for his life and make a new one in the south. Mr. Edmund agrees with and supports the fledging country of America, much to his family's horror. In 1806, a heated argument turned into a furious fight, and a duel, in which George Edmund (b. 1788), Mr. Edmund's youngest brother, was killed. Unbeknownst to him, it was his other brother Henry's (b. 1786) gun that fired the fatal shot, but Mr. Edmund is convinced he killed him.

Believing (in erroneousness) that his life was in danger, he rejected his family fortune and ran away in 1806 to become a lawyer in London. He became very successful after winning a case for an imprisoned and disgraced duke, and has an annual income of 7,500 pounds a year, oftentimes more if he takes on a difficult case.

He never really knew his mother, for she was always a sickly woman, and died of pure exhaustion a few years after giving birth to George, Hugh's youngest brother. His father was middle-aged already when he was born, and has a weak chest.

Edmund has never married, nor does he intend to, and will be able to retire in fewer than seven years.

He also has a knack for picking winning horses in the races, by which he supplements his already sizable income by a remarkable amount.

Social class (nobility, upper, comfortable middle, etc.): Upper

Notable relationships: None.

R.M.Whitaker

Name: Charlotte Kingston

House: Rothbury Lodge

Gender: Female

Age: 19

Weight: 130

Height: 5'5

Hair Color: Very fair blond

Eye Color: golden-blue (if you can imagine that!)

Physical Description: Long and graceful with a becoming figure and elegant neck- not to mention the natural curl of her hair and the bright, wide-eyed innocence in her face- Charlotte appears to be the epitome of feminine beauty on first appearance. But a closer look will reveal ink-spotted fingers and often-abrupt movements caused by brash or whimsical in-the-moment decisions. As her mother puts it, if she'd just "sit still and keep her mouth shut, and hide that wild look of wandering imagination", she'd look the picture of a perfect female.

Personality: In an age of husband-hunting and ball-attending, Charlotte totally and utterly clueless. She enjoys horse-back riding with her brother, William, and doesn't shy away from a game of whist or a healthy debate every now and then. She is filled with energy that she likes to release by running- inside or outside, it doesn't matter to her-, playing out-of-door games, arguing with those who clearly don't read as much as she does, and chasing her mother's lap dog, Frances. In the late hours of the night, her brain all-too-often yet ready to turn off and writes page upon page of wild stories that she'd never seriously consider showing anyone but the inside of her desk drawers. She has an easy, ready laugh, and a happy disposition. A wee bit of a temper when she's pushed to it (it rarely comes out), and a nasty habit of chewing on one of the curls that drape either side of her face. No romantic interest in boys ever seemed to develop as of yet.

Background: Charlotte was raised in Rothbury Lodge by a Governess who always seemed more of a friend than a teacher. She and her brother had few restrictions as children, which their mother now thoroughly regrets (and complains of daily), since her children grew to be such free-willed, spirited, and wild youth.

Social class (nobility, upper, comfortable middle, etc.): Upper

R.M.Whitaker

Name: William Kingston

House: Rothbury Lodge (which he's to inherit on the death of his father)

Gender: Male

Age: 22

Weight: 170

Height: 5'11

Hair Color: Wavy, golden-blond

Eye color: golden-blue (that's a warm blue with flecks of gold in it, just to clarify)

Physical Description: William's a good-looking man. His shoulders are nicely filled-out and he stands tall and proud, with an easy, almost swaggering step. He has an easy smile always hiding behind his lips, breaking out at any given opportunity, slightly crooked. Like his sister, his complexion and eyes are bright with energy and exercise, but he composes himself a bit better.

Personality: He's quieter than Charlotte, speaking with his face more than his lips. He's not as oblivious as his sister when it comes to the opposite sex. He likes to flirt and does it often, and for a little while he's secretly had his eye on Miss Susan Lewis of Windermere House, though he isn't too serious about his little crush at present. Women are only interesting when they are present, and when they are not, a good horse ride or game of cards, or even a wrestling match (if mother doesn't find out) keep him entertained. He, like his sister, is well-read. He loves beauty in all it's forms- nature, the arts, literature.... His laugh is contagious. Still, good humor and care-free attitude aside, he knows when to be serious and has plans for his future.

Background: With his father often away from home on business trips, William practically raised himself on the rolling acres of Rothbury Lodge. He was taught the ways of a gentleman, as well as reading, writing, arithmetic, and French from a tutor. He learned gambling and racing and wrestling from men everywhere else.

R.M.Whitaker

Name: Dr. Peter Grayson

House: Windermere House

Gender: Male

Age: 30

Weight: 190

Height: 6'

Hair Color: Black and loosely curly with tame sideburns that extend just slightly below his earlobes and one particularly stubborn lock that tends to fall over his forehead

Eye color: Very rich, bright, startling blue

Physical Description: In his younger years, when he smiled and laughed, girls thought him very handsome in a rugged sort of way. Tall with broad shoulders, thick arms and a firm, defined jaw, now he scares most people. He wares a permanent scowl and finds little, if any, enjoyment in life. Children call him such things as "The Old Guard Dog" and "The Ghost Man" and "The Black Man". He always wears dark colors and keeps his clothes in immaculate shape- crisp and clean and pressed to perfection. His cravat always looks impeccable, and he takes good care to keep it so even after performing an operation.

Personality: Hard, cold, blunt and grumpy. He can find fault with anything and anyone. He is the result of a good, loving nature turned sour. In his younger days he was shy and kind and loved beauty of every kind. Now he still appreciates beauty, but has an almost unrealistic requirements of what makes something beautiful. He likes his privacy and won't hesitate to speak his mind.

Background: Peter Grayson was a shy, quiet lad. He thought himself very stupid because girls seemed to always be laughing at him. He never knew that they laughed because they thought him attractive. He was alway brilliant- the top of his class everywhere he went! But when it came to social situations, he was awkward and lost. He went to Oxford University to become a doctor and, while there, fell in love with a beautiful woman named Eliza Edgar and married her. Eliza was always a dainty and frail creature, with silly whims and a head full of nothing but bows and lace. Still, Peter loved her and he loved to spoil her and giver her everything she wanted. He was nearly ruined more than once from his attempts to satisfy the wishes of his empty-headed wife, and he couldn't seem to make her understand that money didn't just grow on trees. After two years of marriage, Peter and Eliza had reached the point where they could think of nothing to talk to each other about and Eliza constantly told Peter that he had ruined her life by making her poor and unhappy and being cruel to her. Poor Peter still adored his wife, but didn't know how to appease her. One winter she fell ill and was too weak to recover. Peter administered to her as her doctor, but was unable to save her and with every passing year since her death, he drew into himself more and more, hating himself and the rest of the world, constantly practicing his medical skills.

Woodstock1330

Name: The Honourable James Keaton

House: Visiting Haversham Manor

Gender: male

Age: 24

Weight: 150lbs

Height: 5’7”

Hair Color: dark brown (dogma)

Eye Color: striking leek green

Physical Description: Keaton is handsome, dashing, and unfortunately, knows it. He’s possessed of a long, lean build, making him appear taller than he actually is. He’s a bit of a dandy and is always fashionably well-dressed and well-groomed. His only apparent physical fault is his nose, once a straight Greek shape, has since been broken, but the slight crookedness of it is more endearing than anything.

Personality: Keaton is a dandy, a rake and a womanizer, but he’s wholly likable and charming, in fact there a few who truly dislike him, except perhaps jealous men and women he has scorned. Although he can be droll and sarcastic when bored. He enjoys horseback riding, hunting, cards, billiards, dancing, and the less proper pursuits such as boxing and amateur acting performances.

Background: As the second son and youngest child of Viscount Keaton and his wife, James got all the benefits of peerage, without any of the responsibilities. He spent most of his childhood and youth torturing his poor nurse and later tutors until he was sent away to school. Though he caused much mischief at school he was well liked, even by the teachers, and flourished. When he was 18 his father offered to purchase an officer’s commission for him in the Army but he refused, he attended University with an intent to practice law but after his father’s death three years later he left school. He went to London, where he disappeared for a while except for the occasional letter asking his elder brother, now the Viscount Keaton, for more money. Early in the year of 1814 Keaton was caught up in some sort of scandal involving the daughter and the wife of an Earl which ended in a duel, though neither man was killed. To save the family honor his brother sent him away to stay with some distant cousins, the Brightons, for a time, until the gossiping subsides.

Social class: Nobility/ upper

Notable relationships: Son/Brother of a Viscount, he also has a sister.

Background: Cecelia's family lives in Aberdeen House, and are reasonably wealthy. She has a mother, a father, and a younger sister (who I might add as a main character for me) named Isabella. She grew up in France and in part of England (her parents love traveling), and was very well educated. She is reasonably proficient in French, Latin, and Italian. She enjoys reading, writing, dancing, music, horseback riding, and walking. She loves gothic novels.

R.M.Whitaker

Name: Mrs. Magdalene Tilney

House: Aberdeen House

Gender: Female

Age: 46

Weight: 160

Height: 5'6

Hair Color: Reddish-brown with a few strands of silver showing through

Eye Color: Green

Physical Description: Mrs. Tilney is a stout little woman with a serious brow and an aquiline nose set in a round, pale face with high cheekbones. She is a very orderly, clean person with a sensible taste in fashion and a fondness for well-tended hands and handkerchiefs.

Personality: Those who know her often jest that Mrs. Tilney washes herself at least fifteen times a day. Her house is always immaculate, as is her appearance, and she lives by the rules of society as a monk lives by the Bible. She also considers herself a bit of a match-maker in the community with an eye for "smart matches".

Background: Born Magdalene Harris in Southampton, Mrs. Tilney was brought up in a strictly upper-class environment and was betrothed from birth to Abraham Tilney, whom she married at the age of 18. She does not approve of young ladies remaining single past that age unless they intend to never marry at all.

Social class (nobility, upper, comfortable middle, etc.): Upper

Notable relationships: Niece Cecelia Graham, husband Mr. Tilney, three children- two of which are gone and married. The third is a girl named Anne who is 14 and keeps mostly to herself.

R.M.Whitaker

Name: Anne Tilney

House: No. 36 Hanover Square

Gender: female

Age: 14

Weight: 108

Height: 5'1

Hair Color: red

Eye Color: blue

Physical Description: Though she has the potential to be a pretty woman someday, Anne is not particularly handsome at this stage of life. She is frail and bony with pale skin dusted lightly with freckles and a shy, unsmiling face. Her upper lip is fuller than the lower, causing it to protrude out a bit as though she had bucked teeth, and she accentuates this with her bad habit of sucking in her bottom lip. Her eyes are big and droopy like those of a puppy, with long eyelashes that- for now- only dramatize her slow blinking. Her little nose has milky freckles sprinkled across it. Her red hair is always immaculately curled- thanks to her mother. In fact, homely as she is, her appearence is always pristine as far as cleanliness and orderliness are concerned.

Personality: Quiet and unsociable, Anne would prefer to curl up like a hamster in the most secluded corner of the house and read a book than to interact with her fellow human beings. When she is forced to appear in public, her mind is so lost in its own world that she's as good as absent. She dreads the day that she will have to enter society.

Background: Anne was born in the same house in which she still lives, the only girl of three children. There are enough years sepperating she and her older brothers that she was always a baby when they lived at home and she is not particularly close to either of them. She often forgets that she is not an only child.

Social class (nobility, upper, comfortable middle, etc.): Upper

Notable relationships: Mrs. Tilney, mother.

Weight: 107

Height: 5 feet 3 inches

Hair Color: brown

Eye Color: brown

Physical Description: Isabella is not tall, but she is very pretty nonetheless, and possesses the ability of looking up at men from under her eyelashes. She has brown eyes, a small nose, and a small but open face.

Personality: Isabella is cheerful and flirtatious, but she knows when to be serious. She is quite intelligent, having been at school for quite some time, has traveled a lot with her family, and enjoys nature, reading, and music, as well as loving animals. She has an open, loving nature, is very vivacious, and generally has good taste in people (meaning she can tell if they are good people or not).

Background: Isabella and her sister grew up in France and England, and she has visited Spain, Italy, and Germany. She has a knack for languages, and is more focused on learning than matrimony. She has many pets, a white and gray cat named Sapphire (because of her blue eyes), a brown dog named Cyril, and a dark bay horse named Phillip. She is currently in school, but her parents plan to pull her out soon to begin preparing her for a London season in a year or so. Three boys at school are in love with her already.

I just realized Jo didn't have her own character, so I thought I'd do a write-up seeing as I'll be using her more often than I thought.

Name: Johanna Brighton/Gardner

House: Emory Cottage/Haversham Manor

Gender: Female

Age: 15

Weight: 100

Height: 5'5

Hair Color: Blonde

Eye Color: Blue

Physical Description: Taller than her sister, and with a youthful figure that most women twice her age would envy. Her face is beautiful, with the exotic features of her mother and her father's eyes. With such attractive features and bright glow about her, it is difficult to believe she is Emily Brighton's sister.

Personality: Often getting into trouble for her frequent flirtations and escapades, Jo can be very out of control and headstrong. She knows her manners and can be polite, but will often ask questions with a sharp with that often shocks the elder persons of society. Despite her challenging and dominating personality, she is actually very shy and timid about things that are new and confusing.

Background: Jo is the second daughter of Christopher and Tatiana Brighton, and has grown up in London for most of her life. They moved to Haversham when she was thirteen, and at one of her first balls she met the dashing Liam Gardner. They escaped to meet each other at his place, and soon eloped to Chatham to be wed.

Social class (nobility, upper, comfortable middle, etc.): Upper-middle class and dropping... whoopsie...

Notable relationships: Sister Emmy, husband Liam Gardner

Silver Phantom 2

"Was driven to Wellington’s army by hunger, until he lost his left arm at Waterloo."

I'm sorry Lee, but Waterloo hasn't occurred yet if we're still playing in 1814. Waterloo was June 18, 1815.

Name: Allan Hill

House: Fordham Manor

Gender: Male

Age: 23

Weight: 196 lbs.

Height: 6' 0"

Hair Color: Dark brown, almost black, but distinguishingly (yes I made that up) brown

Eye Color: Blue

Physical Description: Tall and muscular. For the past six years, Allan has been away adventuring in wars in Europe and North America... among other places. His skin is dark and tanned as a result, but he still retains a semblance of his handsome demeanor he had before the War of the Fifth Coalition (and the following War of 1812).

Personality: Adventurous. Always looking for something to do next. However, since he has just returned to England after seeing some... brutal sights, he's suffering a bit of PTSD.

Background: Allan's mother died in childbirth in 1791. Allan was thus an only child to a wealthy Royal Navy Captain who would go on to die in Trafalgar in 1805. Allan was, of course, still in training at the time but would later ship out to Spain to fight in the Peninsula War. His regiment was recalled only to fight on the continent in German territory (... dogma?). He hopped around Europe until Napoleon was no longer declared a threat and he was sent to fight the United States in 1812. He strangely ended up on a ship that was unable to transport him back to the Chesapeake and began chasing the Spanish vessel Aragon around the world. He finally ended up in England after the Treaty of Ghent, happy the war was ended.

Social class (nobility, upper, comfortable middle, etc.): Nobility.

Notable relationships: None. His father and mother are dead. All he has is a butler in the house named Alfred and a maid named Esther.

SnowClaw of Windclan

Name: Colin Reed

House: The Oaklands

Gender: Male

Age: 28

Weight: 148

Height: 5'9

Hair Color: Ebony

Eye Color: Blue

Physical Description: Colin is tall and lanky, and has an overall rougish appearance about him. His hair falls to about chin length, and goes outwards around his ears, creating fringes that mirror those of a Pembrokeshire Welsh Corgi. His hands are normally dirty from working with horses, and he is normally dressed in his 'stable attire', seeing as he is the leader of a hunt club that has meets every few weeks. He can be described as having a mysterious charm about him, and has a five o' clock shadow and dark eyebrows.

Personality: Colin is intelligent and rather arrogant, because he has grown up around wealth and takes it for granted. He believes that he is always right and does not take being wrong very gracefully, and is very proud. Because of this, he is near impossible to offer help to because he constantly refuses it. He has a lofty sense of dignity and is overall a respected member of the community, and his intentions are usually good, even if they do not appear that way. He is clever and sly, and seems to have a sixth sense about what strings need to be pulled to enable him to do certain things, which has helped him many times before. He enjoys a good challenge and has a deep appreciation for literature, especially riddles. He is good at haggling and can be described as slightly manipulative at times, and has no moral dilemma with pulling strings to get what he wants.

Background: Colin grew up as the son of the owner of a hunt club, hence his socioeconomic standings and enjoyment of foxhunting and beagling. However, his father recently died, leaving him to be the heir of half of his wealth (the other half went to his half brother, Liam Reed) and the hunt club, horses, land, and hounds. Overall, this totals as fifteen horses, quite a bit of land, and twenty-five hounds. He resents his brother strongly for recieving the other half of the wealth, but Liam holds no grudge against him. He and Matthew both courted the same woman, hence their rivalry, but in the end both lost to an older earl.

Social class (nobility, upper, comfortable middle, etc.): Upper

Notable relationships:

-Half brother of Liam Reed.

-Very close friend of Benjamin Meriwether

-Rival of Matthew Sust.

SnowClaw of Windclan

Name: Benjamin Meriwether

House: A small, ramshackle but still charming cottage that is nothing to really be spoken of.

Gender: Male

Age: 42

Weight: 132

Height: 5'6

Hair Color: Auburn

Eye Color: Hazel

Physical Description: Benjamin, known as Benji to close friends, is a cheery man, red faced and rather short, with curly hair that gives him almost the impression of a leprechaun. He has a round, button nose and bushy eyebrows that seem to dominate his face, and has a rosy complexion. He dresses casually and is not a fan of wearing things that make him feel uncomfortable.

Personality: Benjamin is cheery, amiable, and ever hospitable. He is known throughout the community for giving help to those who need it in difficult times, and seems to be naturally generous and openhearted. He has before given shelter to a family of lepers, which caused a slight stir in the community, but eventually they left, although he misses their company greatly. He still recieves letters from them on occasion. Mister Meriwether is gentle and honest, and doesn't have a problem with having to work for his pay. He has never been very wealthy but seems to always find ways to squeak by, even if his accomodations are not top notch or some of his things, such as his stove, on occasion do not work. He is nonjudgemental and does not care about the possessions of others, or their wealth, and looks at each person for who they are, not what they are.

Background: Benjamin befriended Colin when he first arrived, and ever since then the two have been friends. He knows most of the people in town and raises hounds, french deer dogs (Billies) to be exact, as a way of earning his living.

Social class (nobility, upper, comfortable middle, etc.): Comfortable middle

Notable relationships:

-Friend of Colin Reed, many of his hounds have also come from Benjamin's litters, as have a few horses.

-Friend of Liam Reed

-Provided a puppy for the Rolands' son, Owen.
