Algernon Coldwell [Jan. 31st, 2004|11:17 pm]
The League of Extraordinary Deviants

[mood |amusedamused]
[music |utter silence]

Name: Algernon Coldwell
Age: 24
Height: 5'6
Weight: About 10 stone
Gender: Male
Parents: Marcus and Geraldine Coldwell
Residence: No. 15 Grosvenor Square
Player: Amanda Davies

Born in the Dover area to a wealthy family, Algernon was educated and raised well. His life was quiet until, in 1884, he had some 'problems' with his parents and was disowned. He immediately left for London, to make his own way (and visit some relatives who didn't quite know about the problems yet).

Shortly after Algernon got to London, his aunt and uncle were killed, and his cousin Lianne was put in his care. He does his best with her, but doesn't really know how to raise a young girl.

Algernon works in Whitehall under Mycroft Holmes, and lives with his cousin. In his free time, he tends to stick close to home. He doesn't attend parties or have many close friends, although he is on decent terms with most of his associates.

He dresses well, although certainly not extravagantly, and is nearly always neat. Algernon makes a decent amount of money, however most of it goes to supporting himself and Lianne. He has little contact with his family now.

Eleanor Profile! [Jan. 31st, 2004|09:17 pm]
The League of Extraordinary Deviants

[mood |boredbored]
[music |"The Matrix" on TV]

Name: Eleanor "Gunpowder Lioness" Merewether
Age: 23
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 135 lbs.
Gender: Female
Parents: Edward and Flora Merewether, of Merewether Gunsmith Company
Residence: No permanent residence as of late. All letters forward to the American Embassy in Cairo where they shall be received after approximately two weeks.
Player: Kelsey Scott

Eleanor is a somewhat infamous, quite American, woman who has been called the 'Gunpowder Lioness' by those who report her exploits in Africa. She received tutors chosen by her family and has had a love of adventure, which her mother claims she inherited from her father's side. She has spent the last three years in Africa on safari.

She receives her financial backing from her parents, who support her wholeheartedly. Her two younger sisters -Maria and Annabelle- look up to her like a brother, and she is treated as an eldest son. The eldest of her two younger sisters, Maria, is engaged to be wed this spring.

When not trudging through the underbrush of the African wilderness, she spends her rest time in Cairo, either at the American Embassy or the Hotel "The Jewel of the Nile", where she is a favored, regular patron.

On the job, and off, her clothing tends to be for hunting. Threadbare khaki colored hunting gear, which always has a few dirt smudges and bloodstains on it, is her most frequent attire, although sometimes she has been known to be talked into 'normal clothing'. For her, this is corduroy pants with the cuffs folded up just slightly, scuffed leather boots, suspenders, and a white work shirt with the sleeves rolled up to her shoulders. When she left for Africa, she had long beautiful hair that went to her waist. Through a series of unfortunate events, however, it is now short and looks like it was cut by a half-blind amateur who was farsighted in his one good eye (You try cutting your own hair when it's not been washed for weeks and with a hunting knife). (No offence to said GM. ^^;;)

Eleanor, most importantly, is never seen without her constant companion. This is a large hunting rifle of custom make by her family, which she lovingly calls "Vera" (as the engravement on the side also reads). It is her favorite of all her guns, and she will not go *anywhere* without it, and a good supply of ammunition.

NOTE: Weight in pounds rather then stones, because she's an American and all.

Martin Othentar [Jan. 27th, 2004|10:17 pm]
The League of Extraordinary Deviants

[music |The Smithereens - Only A Memory]

Name: Martin Othentar
Age: 26
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 10 Stone
Gender: Male
Parents: James and Myrtle Othentar of Liverpool
Residence: No. 27 apt 2, Berner St, Whitechapel
Player: Colin Booth

Martin Othentar is a man of keen business sense and somewhat dubious moral fiber. A graduate of Downing College at Cambridge with a degee in the Thaumatergical Arts.

He works as an independent agent for the less reputable industries in London, mostly in the capacities of a locator of people who don't want to be found, and occasionally as a financial adjustor.

When not working he tends to make pretend that he is better off then he really is, and can often be found at parties or other social occasions rubbing shoulders with the upper-middle class.

When on the job he prefers a lined vest under a normal overcoat, while mingling however he has a suit in decent quality (though it is threatening a trip to the tailors for repairs).

Currently between jobs, Martin is close to the end of his monitary surplus, and his creditors are getting restless.


Non-character block follows:
For those of you who wish to do weights in the standard British system of stone (or wish to divine, the conversion is 14lb = 1 stone. How they got 14 I haven't a clue, but there it is.

[mood |amusedamused]
[music |Wolfsheim - Time]

Name: Lianne Danbury
Age: 12
Height: 4 ft 2.
Weight: 6 1/2 stone
Gender: Female
Parents: Henry and Gertrude Danbury
Residence: No. 15 Grosvenor Square.

Lianne lives with her guardian Mr. Algernon Coldwell (PC- Amanda) and is tutored by her governess Mrs. Elizabeth Shad, a woman who enjoys hitting children when they are "evil"

She plays with her friends Abraham and Wilhemina who are twins, who live at No. 20 Grosvenor Square.

Her parents were killed in a boat sinking in 1885 and she was placed under the care of her cousin, Algernon, who had moved to London the year before.

She dresses usually in deep greens and blues, as she is still in half mourning, however, she is unusually cheerful. Another feature to this little creature is that she carries a grey tabby about most of the time. Her name is Tabitha.

A gathering of individuals [Jan. 26th, 2004|11:06 pm]
The League of Extraordinary Deviants

Greetings all
I believe that I am the first person to make a mention of this, but there seems to be a fabulous new invention allowing us to communicate as if there was a etheric bulletin board that everyone has access to. This is the product of a spell that far outshines my own meager knowledge of the arcane arts.

Anyway, I am glad that such a forum exists, so let us make the best of it.

The one-and-only Martin "Colin 'cathexis' Booth" Othentar
