[OOC]Gilded Cage (High Voltage)

Post by Killer Ice Cream » Wed Jul 01, 2020 2:26 am

Here we are! I'll place the link to the roleplay here when it's ready, and here are our sheets~


Role: Slave

Name: Orwell

Age: 25

Gender: Male

Species: Lamia

Personality/Bio: Living in H'an, there were many opportunities. The sea trade brought many merchants with stuffed pockets and empty heads, and Orwell was in the business of wealth redistribution. With a wink and a smile, some friendly conversation and a well-timed distraction, Orwell was usually able to slip some money out of one pocket and into his own. If money wasn't easily accessible, a ring or two may go missing. Maybe some necklaces. Occasionally, his targets would welcome them into their homes or rooms, and even more would be taken. It wasn't like Orwell tried hiding his ill-gotten gains. He decorated his body with flashy items: jewelry, piercings, necklaces, rings. He wanted it all, and he was very good at it.

But that was before. One of his targets turned out to be a bad sport, and had powerful allies. A merchant from Patriscon awoke one morning and found that most of her money was gone, along with a ruby necklace. Furious, she pulled strings with the local law enforcement, tracking down Orwell and capturing him. Instead of throwing him in jail, however, she brought him back to Patriscon in irons, stripping him of anything of value and selling him into slavery for as much as she could. Broken and destitute, Orwell turned surly and obedient, waiting to eventually be bought and put to work.

Talents/interests: Besides an interest in shiny and expensive things, Orwell has a love of small animals, like dogs, cats, and birds. Back in H'an he could be seen sitting in some public areas feeding the birds, who were naturally attracted by his shinies. To his favorites he sometimes gave shiny things to add to their nest. He is also quite dexterous, as one must be in order to steal effectively. This lends itself to other talents, such as juggling or balancing lots of objects at once.

Appearance: Orwell's snake half is a brilliant emerald green, something he takes pride in. His human half is lean with a bit of color to it. His hair is jet black and comes just to the top of his ears, while his eyes are the brilliant yellow of a snake with slit pupils. Some scales creep up his body, with small patches along his chest, arms, back, and face


Role: Widow

Name: Elizabeth Hermione Wells-Dawn-Shaffer

Age: 74

Gender: Female

Species: Human

Personality: In her youth, Lady Elizabeth was a vibrant and intelligent woman full of curiosity and compassion. These days, though, she's a bit more jaded though still intelligent. She's seen her fair share of life, and has experienced love many times in her years through good and bad. Now though, she craves a much more simple companionship, more like a son or daughter that won't move away to college and live abroad or marry a vegan. (She's very bitter about the last one)

Lady Elizabeth is particular, her maids have a strict schedule and she will notice anything out of place, and often mysteriously knows who took what and when. Her weakness, though, is her granddaughter, who is the only one able to pull her out of her very strict schedule (reluctantly, of course) when she comes to visit.

Talents/Interests: When she was young, her mother wanted her to be as talented as possible so she gave her as many classes as possible. She can play violin, cello, piano, flute and (surprisingly) bongos. She took classes for the harp, but it never stuck, so there is an unused harp stuck in storage somewhere. She even took singing lessons, and is very good, but it's very rare to the point her grandchildren don't even know she can sing.
Unbeknownst to her entire family, she also learned how to shoot and clean a rifle, whittle, and change a tire in her youth. (Though she doubts she'd be as good at those things now as she used to be, and has no use for changing a tire now she has people for that)

Biography: Born in a time when Omisted was still a part of Patriscon and women still wore big floppy hats to hide from the sun, Elizabeth was the only child of Lady Harriet and Lord Simon Wells. As such, she was groomed to take over the estate, naturally, and was constantly taking lessons in new things to help her be an entertaining and elegant individual. When she was just beginning adulthood, war broke out with Girbel just after they discovered aliens and began banning their sale, because floods of slave traders went looking for new, exotic slaves. The war lasted for two long years, ending very quickly after the aliens intervened and Patriscon lost dearly. During that time, she fell in love with a soldier that would often visit her neighborhood for refuge with others from the battles nearby. He died just before the war ended, and soon after her mother arranged a marriage with a nice young lord named Geoffrey Dawn. They lived a nice life together for five years, had two children, and their respective inheritances gave them a very comfortable life. He got sick though, and at the time doctors had only just begun to really understand how to cure cancer, so he was unfortunately a victim of it's then-inescapable claws.

After that she raised her children on her own, and while yes she had lovers Lady Elizabeth was reluctant to bring someone new around her children while they were still young and devoted to their father as they were. So when her youngest moved out, she moved on. Soon she married a handsome man named Scott Shaffer, a wealthy business man and Ceo of one of the largest oil companies in Patriscon as a whole: Shaffer Industries.

Their marriage was a long and happy one, but he died of old age just two years prior to present day, since he was in fact nearly ten years older than Lady Elizabeth herself, and his company was handed down to his son from his first marriage, which didn't bother Elizabeth. She had already gotten half of everything else, and indeed was already well-off without him.

Appearance: Lady Elizabeth has long, soft, and wispy grey hair that falls to the middle of her back that frames her oval face and calculating green eyes. Her favorite color is green, so most of her clothes and jewelery are jade and emerald colored. She prefers long dresses and flat shoes, but will occasionally wear dress pants when she's in the mood.
