Role/Archetype: Old money
Personality: Educated, self assured, confident, up front, Simon can be your closest staunchest friend or the meanest fiend around, depending on how much likes you, his current mood and the phases of the moon. He is shrewd, careful and meticulous, logical and cunning. He usually has a plan of action, yet is not inflexible. He can be the consummate gentleman one moment and the most base cur the next. A man of infinite jest and wisdom and the most ignorant savage as according to his whim.
Background/History: Third son of a third son Simon was never meant to inherit title and manse. He knew this from a young age. His family, however vast, was so very well funded as to be proud to supply all of its branches, no matter how remote, with more than they could ever need. Simon himself grew up somewhat wild as a ward of the Duke of Norfolk, who also held the title of the Earl of Arundel. The estate at Arundel was large and allowed Simon to run free with his various friends, cousins and other extended family roughly his age. Despite his lack of real authority growing up Simon always was a capable student, learning well from his masters both at home and in school. He went on to oxford where he attained a double first in several subjects.
There followed a brief stint as an explorer, seeing the jungles of South and Central America before returning to England having caught some kind of strange wasting disease which he took just over a year to recover from. During this recuperation he discovered books and has since picked up a real passion for both the reading and writing of the English language.
Another of his passions, one that has landed him in trouble time and again over the years since he was caught in the greenhouses on top of his cousin Sissy, is of course sex. He has been a patron of the Castello for around six months now and greatly looks forward to months he can spend there simply exploring his interests and learning more of his own limits.
Additional Character Info: Simon has recently been in morning for a great aunt, which had been known on occasion to put him in a dark and foul mood. He has recently arrived back from a trip to Toronto where he made several long term investments.
