I don't see this character ending up in an intimate situation, but if he should, I don't really care what the sex of the other writer is so long as the characters, themselves, are compatible.Full Name : Neal BurkeAge and Birthdate :

MaleMarital Status :
StallionPredator / Prey / Somewhere Between? :
Chief of Staff to Countess Jezebel IllianderSexuality :
StraightHeight / Weight:
6'2, 225lb Body Type :
Lean and AthleticHair :
Light brown, slightly wavy, has a tendency to grown into a thick mane when not kept neatly cut.Eyes :
Piercing blueDistinguishing Features :
If left to it's own devices, his hair will grow into a thick mane that will easily flow down his back. Aware of this, he keeps it shortly trimmed by visiting a barber on a weekly basis. Neal also has a wicked scar on his right bicep that he refuses to speak of and the initials K.I. along with the date 1/21 tattooed on his left shoulder blade. He refuses to speak of what the tattoo means either.
While he looks, almost, entirely human he is stronger than one would think, given his wiry frame, and he has a stallion's ability to run for far longer distances than a simple human would. He can also run faster than a human and, if you take his clothes off you'll find that his more intimate attributes suit his animalia and that instead of toes, his feet end in hard hooves which he hides with well cut boots.Personality :
From the outside, Neal would seem to be as large a study in contradictions as the Countess he serves. Quiet but highly intelligent and opinionated most of the people that come into contact with him while he escorts the Countess to various functions end up complimenting her on how very well trained her staff is. What they don't realize is that his public face, and his private one, are vastly different.
Having known the Countess since she was a baby (his father worked for hers and Neal considers the Illiander estates as much his home as hers) he doesn't pull his punches when speaking to her in private. He tells her everything he sees and overhears and just what he thinks of many of the rich and spoiled in the upper echelon's of society. Loyal to a fault he'd never leave the service of the Illiander family, but he doesn't think he serves them well by being a simple "yes" man either.Brief Biography :
Neal's father was the Chief of Staff to the Count of Illiander before his death left his estates to his daughter Jezebel. Having grown up on the Illiander estates, his father taught him all he would need to know to serve the Illiander family, including a marked comparison of the fact that, unlike many Predator families, the Illiander's promoted from within and for merit. A predator serving in the Illiander household wasn't guaranteed a promotion when a job opening became available and Prey weren't necessarily demoted to keep Predator's happy. It meant that most of the staff were Prey or In-Between but also that all
Neal's childhood was a happy one. The estates gave the young stallion plenty of room to run and play and plenty of young "fillies" to chase and protect in the form of the female children of other staff members. Everyone had their chores and responsibilities, but the Count had been a kind man who believed that children needed to be taught responsibility but shouldn't be exploited and should have time to be children.
As a young adult, Neal had been given tutors and classes (even taking some with the young Countess herself) in etiquette, dancing, book-keeping, reading, writing, current events, affairs of state, etc., so that he would be able well equipped to take over his father's position upon his retirement or death. His favorite lessons were those in fighting, swordsmanship, and marksmanship. Not only was he meant to be able to help run the estates but to act as body-guard and protector to the young Countess as needed and he excelled in such training. There had been times he hated those lessons, but mostly he appreciated the doors that such learning could open for him if he ever did leave the estates. He had no intention of doing so, but the death of the Count, leaving only Jezebel left of the family, drove home how tenuous life could be and the fact that only one heartbeat, Jezebel's, stood between contentment and whatever fate could decide to throw at all of the staff on the Illiander estates. Character On’s :
Intelligence, passion, honesty, kindness, cuddling, kissing, foreplay, reciprocation, being in the more dominant role.Character Off’s :
Stupidity, cruelty, scat, urine, underage, painAre you willing to allow your character to participate in Non-Consensual Activity? :
He's unlikely to engage in non-consensual sexual activity, though non-consent of other forms (blackmail, abduction etc.) are possible if he thinks he's doing it in the service of Illiander. Getting him into a non-consensual situation would be difficult but if it truly helped the storyline I wouldn't be against it. Outright rape I would prefer to avoid.Are you willing to allow your character to have sexual interaction with those outside of their preferred sexuality? :
Neal likes women but wouldn't necessarily mind flirting with men and while he's not going to seek a man out for sex, if a female partner he was with wanted to engage in a MFM threesome he wouldn't be adverse to such a sharing but wouldn't go into it thinking he'd be having sex with the other male either.Anything Else? :
Neal is Illiander's man heart and soul. Telling him something personal is safe, but telling him something that will effect Illiander in any way, is the same as telling the Countess herself. Also, while he serves the Countess, he's not going to have a problem with acting outside of her knowledge if he thinks it's for the good of Illiander.
