Cristiano "Christian" ConceiçãoPlayed by:
Romance, Domination, Rough sex, Sex outdoors, Passionate partners, Shy partners, Dislikes/Turn offs:
Scat, Hostile people.speciality:
Christian was born to an Brazilian father and a American mother. A charming, relaxed character. His father and mother were both botanists who met on a research project together in the amazon, researching new medicine they fell in love; their passion kindled by long starry night along in the jungle. They had their first son several years later when they both returned to America.
Christian is the second of four boys, growing up in a rambunctious loving household he developed a strong boyish personality. Of all the boys in the family Christian was the one to most pick up his parents scientific skills, however when he would eventually go on to college he ended up on the other end of the medical business, giving out the drugs rather than developing them. Throughout his high school life he competed with his brothers at nearly everything from sports to grades to girlfriends, developing a cheerfully competitive nature. When he reached college he majored in tropical medicine in the hope to help those in poorer countries, and is currently in his final year of study before he enters the field. His adventurous nature makes him perfectly adept for the task at hand, getting aid in some of the most remote places in the world.
He inherited his looks from his father, from his tanned skin to his dark Latin hair and eyes, he looked the most like his Brazilian heritage of the quartet of brothers. He likes to wear loose open shirts or tight tee's which reveals the body he is quite proud of. He had no difficulty attracting lovers throughout his teenage years and into his twenties, both men and women. He is a passionate lover, often falling for people too rashly. When he split from his last lover in a fiery argument he learnt about the Mapping Eden project and signed up. A chance to escape away to his country of birth and live an exciting adventure for a few months, and a great opportunity to learn more about the place he would soon be working.Additional Character Info:
Jesse BurkePlayed by:
Reading, Intelligent women, romance, light - rough sexDislikes/Turn offs:
Confrontations, abusive people, those with a sense of entitlement. Specialty:
Me was born and raised in the tenements of Chicago. He grew up in a poor and hostile environment with drugs, gangs, and violence all around him. He never knew his father and lost an older brother to gang violence. He spent a lot of time in public libraries to avoid trouble on the streets. There he found his love of nature and agriculture.
He survived his childhood better than most in that area. But he didn't avoid trouble completely. He was hospitalized several times in his youth for stab wounds, and once he was treated for a gunshot wound in his right thigh. He carries plenty of souvenirs of his hometown.
He managed to get a job during high school in a small engine shop, repairing lawn mowers and the like, which also helped him stay out of trouble. He saved his money with the secret desire to attend college. He continued working a whole year after high school before going to college to save more money.
Once in college, he focused his studies on agriculture, and dabbled in botany. Living for so long among lifeless gray buildings and run down brick row houses, he craved nature. It gave him an outlet for his energies. Finding a food source that would help end the kind of hunger he had seen growing up was very important to him.
He excelled in school and joined the program to be a part of something ground breaking, something that would make a difference to the world. He wanted to be a part of history. Additional Character Info:
He is usually quiet and reserved, traits he adapted growing up avoiding conflict and violence. He tries to avoid confrontation. He will protect himself if he thinks he is in danger though.
Yuki SandersPlayed by:
Romance, Seduction, breast play, being outside, kissing, exploringDislikes/Turn offs:
Violence, liars, no romance/seduction Specialty:
Yuki is a quirky but fun individual. She loves going on adventures and has been doing so since she could walk (often getting herself into trouble as a result, especially when she brought "treasures" home!). Nothing makes her happier than making other people laugh, and if doing a jig when someone's down will make them feel better, then hand her a pair of dancing shoes. She often dresses comfortably, making it easier t run around or climb trees. Her parents separated when she was 8 years old, but both love her very much. She lives with her mother in the United States but goes to see her father as often as she can, usually in the summer. Her mother and father both support her love of learning and exploration, her father sending her books or tools and her mother reminding her that sometimes it's not ok to bring every single artifact into the house.
Yuki is a bit lonely however, as she's terribly shy around guys. One might even say she's almost afraid of them due to an incident that happened when she was young. She was already shy then, but had mustered the courage to confess her feelings to a guy she liked. He told her he didn't date ugly girls, and Yuki was crushed. Since then she also believes herself to be ugly, never bothering to primp herself up too much (not that she needed to much for getting dirty anyway!). But these little flaws never seem to dampen her spirits, though if a cute guy is around she might very well faint or run off if he isn't careful.
Yuki's love of Archaeology came from when she was young, where she was digging around with a few other kids in a sandbox and while digging found someone's missing necklace. She was thrilled, but she didn't get to keep the necklace. She did get rewarded for her honesty however, and since then she loves to dig holes in the ground or follow legends to see what she can find. She's never really disappointed even if she finds nothing at all, it's the thrill of trying to find it that gets her going the most. She did hurt herself at one point, breaking her arm when she got a bit too full of herself while climbing along a rock wall towards an old abandoned mine shaft.
The trip to South America got her attention even though the promise of finding artifacts was a bit slim because she's always heard legends of people discovering hidden temples or lost civilizations. She hopes she might get lucky and find something of interest, but she's also looking forward to seeing another continent.Additional Character Info:
When people get close to her, she often tells them her nickname, which is Yuyu!
Nichole “Nikki” DrakePlayed by:
Outdoors, romance, strong, intelligent, and polite men, adventure, and flowers.Dislikes/Turn offs:
Crude and callous individuals, violence, destruction of nature’s beauty, ignorant individuals.Specialty:
Nikki has always had a passion for the outdoors. Born in Colorado, she spent quite a bit of her childhood and young adulthood in the Rocky Mountains. She is an avid outdoorsman, and follows in her father’s steps as far as that goes. She learned how to shoot a rifle at the age of 12 and enjoys hunting with her father. She is a good shot with both compact bow and rifle, and knows how to skin and clean deer, and elk.
Despite her love for the rugged outdoors, Nikki is quite feminine. She loves being pampered, and while within civilization does her best to appear attractive. However, her choice of degrees and thus professions stemmed from her early infatuation with the great outdoors. A double major of botany and zoology, Nikki has focused her post-grad work on exotic flora found within the South American rainforests where she hopes she can conduct enough research to earn a PhD. Additional Character Info:
While not a linguist by nature, Nikki has studied Spanish, French, and Russian and can muddle her way through those languages in most situations.
Stephanie Clarke Played by:
Bleached blond, naturally a dirty blond/mousy brown.Height:
Heterosexual. (Possibly Bi-Sexual for the right woman.)Likes/Turn Ons:
Romance, Guys who take control (sexually or in everyday situations), Guys who are blunt/who tell it like it is, Passionate individuals, Pretty Clothes/Underwear, Facial Hair (on men, obviously), Muscular partners/partners who take care of themselves, Protective men, Swearing/Cursing, Piercings and Tattoos, Knowledge, Dominate/Aggressive men (to an extent.)Dislikes/Turn offs:
Scat/Toilet Play, Vomiting, Spiders. Specialty:
Stephanie was born and brought up in England for most of her life with a loving family made up of her mother, her father and her twin younger brothers. Her parents worked hard to keep their children happy; if there was one thing she remembers about her childhood it was the fact that the three siblings always had everything they could ever want or need. Her mother and father had been childhood sweethearts and had been together ever since; it was always something she thought was amazing, that they had been together for so long. It was something she aspired to have, ever since she was a young girl. It is also the reason for her previous failed relationship with the wrong kind of guys; she just couldn't help latching onto them and making them her entire world. Another trait that it caused her to develop was the fact she wears her heart on her sleeve; shes a little predictable in that respect and can't help but show her emotions like an open book. Around seven months after her 18th birthday, her father was in a server car accident that left him alive, but paralyzed from the waist down. Her mother took up another job after her dad was made redundant, but she only created more problems for herself, leaving her constantly drained. It pushed Stephanie into getting her first job so that she could help out with household bills, everyday necessities as well as looking out for her family. She started out as a bartender in a local pub, but continued her passion on the side; modelling.
Stephanie continued to send a portfolio that she had made for herself and eventually, almost a year later, she finally got a reply from an agency in America who offered to pay her way overseas. They also helped her find somewhere to stay; an apartment share with a few other girls in the agency. She sends money back to her family every time she is paid and they remain to say they fully support her decision, though Stephanie can't help feeling slightly guilty for leaving them. Since moving to America, she's toughened up a little and managed to keep herself from getting into too much trouble, with the help of her manager, of course. An older woman who had the life experience Stephanie envied.
Her agency decided to spring this little ‘trip’ on her after they'd built her up a little; apparently they were going to give some sort of donation to the people in charge of the expedition, but Stephanie remained clueless about the details. All she knew is what she would be doing and that it would help boost her career in some way or another.Additional Character Info:
Stephanie has several piercings, including her bellybutton, tongue, her ears have been pierced twice on both her lobes as well as her tragus, helix as well as scaffolding on her right ear. She also has a tattoo on the inside of her left wrist with her father, mother and brothers names written in bold italics. (Susan, Derek, Jason & Mason. Top – Bottom.)
Esmeralda Rodriguez Played by:
Blonde and BrownHeight:
Outdoors, waterfalls, rough play, dirty talk, beaches, strong men, fashion, popularityDislikes/Turn offs:
Violence, destruction, shit (verbal and actual), blood, stupidity, clowns Specialty:
Esmeralda was born to a completely Mexican family. Both parents came to America from Mexico City to join family in New Mexico. Despite neither parent being from America, Esme was born in the States and as such was given citizenship. Esme never wanted for anything in her life. In fact, she was somewhat spoiled. More than somewhat. Esme always got what she wanted. As such, she obtained an attitude. In high school, she was one of those girls always at the center of attention: one of the popular kids. With her extremely good looks and attitude, she was always sought after. Not that it made people truly liked her, they just admired her and wanted to be like her.
Esme kept up with appearances. There was no better way to get what you wanted if you acted like you cared. Deep inside, there was little she did actually care about. However, growing up, she had spent a lot of time outside with her cousins and brother. She had enjoyed digging through the ud and climbing trees and dissecting animals. She never fully grew out of it, but kept it from public eye, letting only her family know her secret.
Once in college, Esme became one of those sorority party animals. Even though her grades were naturally passing, she hardly ever studied. She went undeclared for years. It wasn’t until she went back home after hearing her brother had gotten into an accident that she started to be serious. While home, her brother had commented on how he no longer recognized his sister anymore; she was a stranger. Having grown up with deep family values, it cut her deep. She had to stop pretending to be someone she wasn’t.
Esme finally declared biology as her major and started to get serious. Unfortunately, her intellectual side conflicted with her vain side and she had many emotional breakdowns along the way, feeling she had lost herself somewhere. With so many layers of pretending, she wasn’t sure who she was. One of her professors recommended this trip as a way to relax and get away from metropolitan life. Who knew, maybe she could discover who she truly was while in the jungle.Additional Character Info:
Can name almost any plant and animal. Also, when she gets frantic/stressed, her Hispanic accent comes out.
