I'd like to bring my character, Afanassii, in as a Client. This is his original version as a time and dimension traveler. If, however, you would rather he be more "normal" I do have two ways of dealing with that: 1 - his abilities tend to change based upon his environment. So due to this world's physics he could lose special abilities or 2 - I could recreate him as a native to this world.
Let me know if you would like me to change anything or you're all right with the way he is. Thanks!
Extremely long and red but with white bangs. (If I could photoshop it I would but otherwise this picture will suffice)

Sews and designs clothingPersonality:
Nassii is a curious boy. He loves to love and he loves to learn. He uses his travels in order to meet new people and become acquainted with fascinating new cultures. He takes bits and pieces of the new cultures and incorporates them into his music, clothing and vocabulary.
He is flirtatious but tries to remain a gentleman. He speaks formally almost all of the time and will address the lowest of the low as "sir" or "miss" even if they are grossly unworthy of a kind title. He holds the traditional belief that his people hold, that females are naturally superior to males and so doesn't take it well when a man treats a woman badly. He is hopelessly romantic and dreams of wooing his true love. Due to the Jupag'nai (more on that in history) he is unable to love and so it is the most wondrous of concepts to him. He reads about it and puts his new knowledge to test often. Those girls that aren't put off by his feminine looks often fall for him because he is too good at romancing without really being able to feel in a romantic way.
While open to encounters with both sexes, he believes that only a woman could be his life partner. But, then again,he's not necessarily looking for his life partner here....
History and Notes:History:
Kirill Afanassii Abez'iana was born in a place called Freeland to a prominent family in the Sekassiret society. Due to his people's possession of magic and technology that allows them to travel through time and space and the fact that he had obtained his family's good graces, Nassii is free to travel as he wishes.
General information on Nassii's Race, if you want to read it:
Ostracized by the other races in their homeworld, the Sekassiret are deemed as either evil, unnatural or cursed. They have their own, rich history, although the further one goes back into it, the more squabbling there is over details. Their history is partially obscured by the fact that they have learned how to travel through time and space by a combination of magick and the technology of the age. Legend has it that they came to this knowledge when traveling with the Elan (the major knowledge-holding race in the world), once they settled into their territory a fight broke out and the Sekassiret elders were able to make off with this information and have kept it from the Elan ever since.
Their society is in some ways backwards from the others around them. Although they tend to dress the societal norms for their gender, and even keep most of the usual jobs, the females are the dominant gender. While the males may hunt and perform heavy labor, the women keep the household (though tend to do little of the actual housework) and are the main decision-makers in all things. They are matriarchal and a male would marry into his wife's family and take on her last name.
Their main religion is ancestor worship and it is a part of their daily lives even if other spiritual beliefs are held as well. Boys are deemed as imperfect and their spiritual upbringing is held to the highest importance. A male is not considered a full person until he has be granted a wife and has the ability to love. Because marital fidelity is so important to them, the Sekassiret males are brought up with the beliefs that being a father and a devoted husband are the most wonderful things in the world. As a rule, their sons partake in daily catechism and devotional classes and ritually cleanse themselves on a regular basis. the most controversial of all the ritual events, by far, is the use of the drug jupag to provide temporary sterilization and disallow the boys the ability to feel more than friendly and familial love.
They encourage the boys (who have grown accustomed to the exposure of jupag over time so that it provides no unwanted effects) to travel about and sow their wild oats at whim. Jupag negates the chance for unwanted pregnancy and the boys are able to enjoy sexual experiences. As odd as this practice may seem, the reasoning behind it is to teach the boys the difference between love and sex. And, once they are able to fall in love, they will appreciate it all the more in the end. The Jupag-nai (the term for the ritual use of the drug) is one of the most closely-guarded secrets of the Sekassiret and the males are generally not even aware of it (before becoming fathers of their own) unless they are given the chance to know by the elder women in the family. (Afanassii is aware of the drug and, in order to travel for long periods of time, he has a "breathing vial" which he wears as a pendant close to his chest. The vial keeps a steady flow of Jupag coming into his system)
Coming off of the drug is done differently depending upon the clan involved. Some restrict their sons' involvement with all females and introduce them to the woman they have chosen for him while weaning him from the drug or taking it away suddenly. The boy then has very little chance to fall in love on his own, making this very much an arranged marriage. Other clans slowly wean their boys from the jupag and may require a time of quiet contemplation, away from their friends. This allows them to look over their lives and current relationships, and to see if any new feelings of love toward women they already know have come about since they have the ability to love them differently then.
While there is variation in skin tone, the vast majority of the race are extremely pale because they have no exposure what so ever to direct sunlight. Their eye and hair colors vary, but are generally light in shade. Several distinct features mark a Sekassiret in their home world, these are: small horns, hollow fangs (they must consume the blood of a mammal on at least twice a month, they also have a mild venom that they can secrete, it acts as a hallucinogen and narcotic for most mammals) a grayed-out pupil area of the eye, upon close inspection one can see 4 smaller dots inside, each representing an individual pupil. (these unique eyes allow them to be very perceptive) and about 60% of the race have a set of Spinnerets, generally those who have them are female. The males who are born with them are considered intersexed and not always made to follow all of the rules other males do.
Abilities: Most of these were covered under their description. Such as: increased perception due to their eyes, their venom sac and blood-draining ability. Those who have spinnerets can make creations from their webbing. They have no other natural abilities, though they are generally tinkerers and seekers of knowledge in their own way - mostly through technology, though some do learn magick.
Quick notes for the TL/DR aspect:
- Afanassii is very pale because he has an aversion to the sun. He burns easily and carries a parasol around with him everywhere he goes.
- He has weird eyes that only look strange upon close inspection. His separated pupils allow him a certain amount of "spidey sense"
- He has hollow fangs that he needs to drain blood of another being on a regular basis
- His fangs also allow him to inject a hallucinogenic venom into his "victim" if he wishes
- He is routinely drugged by his family. The drug keeps him infertile and unable to love.
- His people are matriarchal and feel men are not considered complete until wed to a woman
In his home world, Nassii was trained formally as a gentleman. He reads and writes, mends and designs clothing. He is eloquent and accommodating, but also a bit on the effeminate side, if only for his love of romance. Because of his nature, he became his mother's "favorite" male child - not too much of a feat considering he has only one brother, who is strictly homosexual. He was granted the freedom to travel without escort. While he usually waits to meet outsiders in his own world before traveling to their own, he found out about a certain one and was moved to take a step there on his own.
Since the Freeland language is 80% similar to Russian, Nassii holds a special love for Earth. He often would come to Earth to spend time among the Russians. After filling in the blanks in the language differences, he moved on to conquering English. Because The US is such a diverse area, it quickly grew as his new love.
Recently, he has come to be touched by the effect he has on those who fall for him. While it's extremely easy for him to be caring and doting and romantic and sweet, the Jupag'nai keeps him from loving. He's had far too many people - ladies in particular - fall for him in a way he could not return. As a way to cut back on that unwanted predicament, he has begun to seek the companionship of people he knows won't expect his love in return. As such, brothels are a welcome solace on occasion.
It is for this need of people who understand his intentions that he comes to the new Moulin Rouge. Notes:
Because of his strong belief in female supremacy, he comes to the brothel for an arrangement on equal terms. He is more than willing to pay handsomely for the companionship of a woman who wants
to be in such a position. However
... he is unaware of any slavery that may be on the premises. If this were to come to his attention, he would certainly refuse to bring his business there in the future.I have a role play idea concerning him:
After spending some time courting the willing ladies at the MR, it comes to his attention that things might not be as sweet as they seem. He asks those of authority about whether it is true that some people who work there are not doing so willingly. (If they told him the truth, he would loudly call them out on it and threaten to bring justice down on them any way possible; If they denied it he would look into it on his own and try to secretly free those held against their will.) After causing the brothel some major trouble, perhaps he is captured? If the reputation of his talents had spread too much, it's possible he could be forced to live as a slave. He might end up liking non-con against him since he enjoys all acts of love. A compassionate master/mistress would bring him closer to the ability to love, particularly if they managed to take the drug away....
