I am also quite interested! This sort of story is right up my alley. I'm thinking a young lady from a 'New Rich' family who is curious, but does not know entirely how she feels about the idea of free love so decides to explore it in secret.

Name:    Akira Tetsou
Played by:    Hellis
Nationality:    Japanese
Age:    20
Eyes:   Brown
Hair:   Long, Black
Height:   5'7
Sexuality:   pansexual

Likes/Turn ons:  dominant or submissive partners, rough sex, breasts, facials, Shibari, sensuality, anal (recieving and giving.)
Dislikes/Turn offs: rape, scat, pee

Role/Archetype: Androgynous oriental young man and enterteiner.

Personality:  Akira is a switch in bed and act with grace and a sense of confidence outside of sexual encounters. He is compliant with peoples wishes, being very noble and courteous in his actions, yet always acts with dignity in mind.

Background/History:  Akira is something of relic, he belongs to the era of Japan before Christian Missionaries began to spread that homosexuality was a sin. He was a kabuki actor, often playing the female roles due to his appearance. He was born frail, with a face of a angel. As he grew up, he was less interested in the violent game of peasant boys wanting to be Samurai. He himself was from a decently well off family, craftsmen who made jewelry for the higher class. They worried that Akira, frail and somewhat sickly, would not grow up to continue the family line. Luckily for them, their second child was far more along the lines that they needed, strong and healthy. That said, they still loved both sons unconditionally.
It was no surprise for his parents when Akira began to enjoy Kubuki. The boy had always acted in a bit of a dramatic fashion, loved stories and enjoyed mimicking people. With the influence of Western powers and the rapid industrialization of the nation, Samurai began to loose their place, and people like Akiras parents became targets for a emerging Yakuza; criminal organizations of merchants using desperate vassal family samurai as muscle.

Akira wished to escape the tumultuous, chaotic society that was growing out of the old Japans ashes and joined a Kabuki troupe at the age of 15. The troupe, folling the old tradition of not having a female in the cast saw use of the boys slender, androgynous figure and face, making him the “Heroine”  of their plays. He found that he was very good at playing the role and that Men and Women both desired to bed him after each show. In a way, he was on display for the highest bidder every show. It was a lifestyle he enjoyed, as he found himself very fond of sex. It wasn’t concerned about gender either,  to him pleasure was all he cared for. He became so good of a lover, that one man, a wealthy British gentleman offered to take him to Britain, and introduce him to a man by the name of Louis Maxwell. He has stayed there ever since, delighting visitors with his artistry and pleasant balance of the masculinity and femininity.


Additional Character Info: While identifying entirely as a man, Akira doesnt mind being called femmine things by others. He is also rather frail in stature and build compared to the average man, making him extra cautious around people. He loves shakespear and the english acting traditions as he himself is a actor.

Hi,

This sounds very interesting. I'm thinking that as this is set in Dover, I might like to play a nouveau riche ship owner. He will have traveled reasonably widely and so will have a rather eclectic set of tastes. Since he is rich from being 'in trade' the aristos look down upon him which leads him to be quite aggrieved at them and their class.

Let me know if the idea of such a character has merit, and I will do up a char sheet.

Atlas, your char pic scared the life out of me. I used that exact pic for two characters already. What are the chances...........

Nap.

Name: William Firestone

Played by: Napanee

Nationality: British

Age: 25

Eyes: brown

Hair: brown

Height: six foot

Sexuality: Bi-curious

Likes/Turn ons: Exotic partners, mild restraints (of his partner or himself), voyeurism, mutual masturabation, public sex. Stimulation of desire, biting and marking with teeth, light hand slapping and corresponding moaning and oral sex.
Dislikes/Turn offs: Excessive force/coercion, scat, pee...


Role/Archetype: Nouveau Riche
Personality: Inquisitive. Curious. In general he is calm but he has a temper if crossed.  In extreme situations, he has been known to let his passion get the better of him - something which both scares him and excites him in equal measure. He is seeking situations which will rouse this passion.

Background/History: William, the third son of a wealthy land owner, was destined for the Church as custom decreed. He wasn't having any of that, however, and managed to be suspended or expelled from all of the finer religious schools in the South of England. Sent to a seminary when he was fifteen, William absconded and went to sea. Unable to gain a position in the Royal Navy, he joined the East India Company rather later in life than was typically the norm. He rapidly gained a proficiency with his fists after several of his shipmates kept calling him 'parson'. In addition to fist-fighting, he quickly found he had a knack for the sea and he rose rapidly through the ranks of the Company because of a proficiency with mathematics and navigation (maybe something of his schooling had been retained after all?). 

After several trips servicing Company interests in Bombay and Madras he was introduced to the delights of the local women and their rather more permissive attitudes to sex and sexuality. He was drawn to study the four main puruṣārthas (aims/goals) in Hinduism (dharma, artha, kāma and moksa) but most particularly that of kāma or emotional or sexual pleasure.  He became intrigued about the stimulation of desire, biting and marking with teeth, on copulation (sexual positions), light hand slapping and corresponding moaning, virile behavior in women, superior coitus and oral sex.

William was later moved to Calcutta where he was made Master of a ship carrying cotton and tea to China. As was his prerogative as Master he was able to make a rather tidy sum carrying some (less than legal) private cargo. This he put to good use by buying a small ship which he set to carrying opium between Calcutta and Canton (something completely forbidden for Company ships). The profits he made from the opium trade meant he could buy more ships and diversify the types of cargo.

Whilst he is not an addicted opium eater, William experienced its effects first hand in a brothel in Canton and on the women in the brothel. He since uses opium on occasion to delay ejaculation and therefore extend the length and intensity of the sexual act (furthering his pursuit and study of kāma).

William doesn't compete with the East India Company in volume, but he can guarantee swift passage for goods and wealthy passengers. He currently runs a fleet of five Square Topsail Schooners. Europe is where the real money is, and so he reluctantly returned to England recently to further his business interests. It was entirely happenstance that he was introduced through a friend of a friend to the Free Love movement and to the Castello in particular. He is interested to find out if Free Love will allow him to continue his pursuit of kāma whilst still being in England. It doesn't hurt that he has relatively easy access to opium.

André Toussaint
Name: André Toussaint

Played by: BlackestKnight

Nationality: Haiti (born in france)

Age: 28

Eyes: Brown

Hair: Black

Height: 6'2"

Sexuality: Straight - open minded

Likes/Turn ons: the piano, buxomness, exotic beauties, exhibitionism, oils, scents, mild bondage, roleplaying, making love, waterplay, art of striptease(burlesque), group play, interesting people,  intelligent partners.

Dislikes/Turn offs: slavery, zealots, stiff personalities, napoleon, dullards, violence.

Role/Archetype: Brothel Musician  - Reefer Man




Personality: André is one of the most laid back self assured personalities you'll ever likely meet. He is a rebel in his views, he is somewhat of a socialist though that doesn't quite accurately describe him. He is a musician foremost and marches to the beat of his own drum whatever that may be. Quite gifted, apparently self taught. He learned to play the piano from imitating the classical greats. Though he has since improvised his own style,  a sort of ragged unconventional rhythmic playing style borrowing from his Haitian background.

Background/History: The son of a french creole harlot and a Haitain ex-patriate anti-slave trade pirate. Andre was born and raised in a whorehouse in Marseille's red light district. His father an outspoken critic of french bourgeois society was imprisoned amidst the revolution where he died mysteriously in captivity. Having never met his father personally, Andre came to learn of his father through his reputation as a trouble maker on the high seas. His tales of revolutionary justice no doubt making an impression over the young Andre.

His first experience with a piano was at the age of 4 when he encountered a church organ. Though he was not particularly religious himself, his mother became a convert of the Lutheran church shortly after he was born. She took a vow and never returned to her previous profession. Though not formerly educated, he came to learn how to read and write from his time spent at the church. He also became proficient at playing a church organ. To earn a little extra money on the side, he also began to play at his mothers old brothel.

 As a teen he learned the tricks and the trades of the street, orchestrating street performances to raise capital while his "associates" picpocketed would be marks. They shared in whatever profits and as soon as he became independent, he traveled outside france playing as a sort of nomadic pianist throughout Europe, soon enough word spread and he began playing for noble audiences, being billed as a sort of Black beethoven, though he was mostly treated as a novelty act and his appeal eventually fizzled out and he's since settled in Britain where he can be found at the Castello. He's also known to frequent marxist circles where he's known to open minds through the wonders of the cannabis plant- for a nominal charge of course.

Additional Character Info: I'm good at making music, I'm a pretty good pianist too.

Name: Known as Jacob Hayes...real name Daniel Smyth-Holt
Played by: Eiselmann
Nationality: English
Age: 22
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Black
Height: 5ft11
Sexuality: Hetero

Likes/Turn ons: Orgies, Multiple partners, humiliation and control when dominate, used as a sex slave when submissive
Dislikes/Turn offs: Heavy bondage, direct male on male contact , dressing as a  woman anything more apt in a loo.

Role/Archetype: Staff/ Switch
Personality: Embittered (which he masks) Calm , Curious
Background/History: Jacob was born the grandson of a wealthy industrialist and a maid. His grandfather demanded that he be sent to an orphanage however his parents resisted and as a result his father was disinherited. Jacob was brought up in a lower middle class area just on the outskirts of London, his father was employed as a clerk by a distant cousin while his mother found work as a cloth cutter. His Grandfather took pity on Jacob and paid for his education from the age of 6 until 16. Unfortunately tragedy struck when his father was attacked by a gang of ruffians and murder was done to him, his mother fell into a deep depression and was taken to a place where she could be healed...she died within a month.

An older Cousin took Jacob in (at his grandfathers request) , his cousin was a man of great means and expensive tastes, several mistresses as well as his cousins wife shared his giant bed, it did not take long for Jacob to join them at night, for the next year he pleasured all the women often for several hours longer than his cousin. At first his cousin encouraged this but just before his eighteenth birthday his cousin overheard the women talk and express there preference for Jacob as a lover, this included his wife.

With cold rage his cousin arranged for Jacob to join him on a business trip to Paris, which would include a healthy amount of whores, on the first day Jacob was taken to a house just south of Paris and there he met several beautiful women over the course of the following two days he made love to all the women, to great satisfaction. Instead of leaving the house as he expected Jacob was assaulted , bound and imprisoned in a bare room , he was brought a meal once a day by an man who never spoke to him but otherwise left alone. At the end of the month Jacob was given a choice obey or die.

For the next month he was given instruction in various deviance's and then presented to a new woman who had paid for his services , over time his training continued as well as his client contact at the age of 21 he discovered that his Cousin had sold him to clear part of a debt and that the rest of the debt had been transferred to Jacob, whatever he was earning was applied to the debt yet the costs of his training and upkeep were always greater and the debt was rising. Realising he was indentured Jacob knew he must flee or forever be bound. He had secretly learnt French and when an opportunity presented itself he ran, Gods Grace and luck was upon him and he managed to escape by heading to St Malo instead of Calais. From there he paid for steerage on a small boat crossing the channel and walked from Portsmouth to London with the aim of confronting his cousin.

When he reached his cousins property he was greeted by the mans wife who advised that her husband had fallen on difficult times and was no longer himself, all the mistresses had fled him and she did not know how much longer she could keep the creditors at bay. She tearfully admitted to whoring several gentlemen of standing in order to keep the house. She gave Jacob an address of  a man that might be able to offer him employment.

 
Additional Character Info: Jacob despises the rich who feel they are superior simply because of their wealth , thou he would never show it. His French is extremely good but he never uses it. He is in fear of his French employers finding him and so has changed his name. He is looking for a way to bring down his grandfather. Jacob is in  many ways a sexual chameleon and whilst his personal preference is to dominate ,he can play the part of the master or the servant, the experienced man or the innocent and almost everything in between.

Color me extremely interested here is one character.....Um I play more if needed!


Name: Capricia Donati

Played by: Laura Haddock (writer: Sexy Firefly)

Nationality: Florentine

Age: 24

Eyes: Blue

Hair: Dark Chestnut

Height: 5'8

Sexuality: Bisexual

Likes/Turn ons: Age difference, bondage, light pain, games, forplay, rough passionate sexual play, everything is open when it comes to Capricia

Dislikes/Turn offs: Except; watersports, scat play, or anything that involves bloodletting or mutilation

Role/Archetype: Florentine Courtesan (Castello Staff)

Personality: Capricia is impulsive acting mostly on a whim or how she feels at that particular moment, cunning and manipulative a trained actress in her own right. She is a go getter, if she wants it she will have it with no remorse to who she must step on to reach success. Has an otherworldly intellect making her an exotic.

Background/History: The bastard child of a Medici, Capricia grew up on the streets of Florence. Her mother had died shortly after the girls twelfth year sending her to a house for girls, run by a dastardly woman not to be mentioned. The house lay beyond a decrypted courtyard just a shack among the pearls of Florence architecture and this was where Capricia's training began. Starting off as a peddler and thief Capricia gradually grew into the more exotic. With her aging so grew  her beauty, and with confidence of a queen the peddling soon turned into prostitution and that lead to her being mistress to a powerful family and captain of Florence's guard. She was 18.

When Florence, like so many city states fell to the powers of the church Capricia fled the prosecution finding solace in England after being in Paris for a year or two. Now at the age of twenty four Capricia has climbed the ranks of courtesans at the Castello and call it her home.

Additional Character Info: Capricia will not talk about her past and if prompted she will weave stories such that no man or woman has ever heard. She also has a tattoo, a red and orange serpent that starts at her right shoulder, across her back and ends on her left hip, a reminder of who she had belonged to back in Florence.

*If more needs to be added just let me know!
*If another character is needed I will be able to play another.

Clients, you say?  Perhaps something like...




Name:  Commander James Wesley Hext, R.N.
Played by: RevAtArms
Nationality: English
Age: 30
Eyes: Hazel-Gray
Hair: Brown
Height: 5'9"
Sexuality: Bisexual (Depending on level of intoxication, primarily.)


Likes/Turn ons: Casual sexuality, 'status play,' irreverence, drug use, worshipful oral sex, submissive individuals, sodomy (giving), intellectualism, the smell of gunpowder, biting wit. 
Dislikes/Turn offs:True non-consensuality, 'superior' officers and individuals of 'high breeding.'  Rapists, abusers, child-molesters and violent drunks. 


Role/Archetype: Dissolute naval officer. 
Personality: James Hext is not what you'd expect in a naval officer -- he's tall, slender, horrible at taking orders and possessed of sufficient wit to get himself into trouble.  He has always walked the line of respectability and would have likely never received promotion were he not a superlative fighting captain.  He's a thrill-seeker and a world eater, perpetually falling for a new high or a new pleasure...which isn't to say that he's thoroughly depraved.   Only partially. 
Background/History:
The son of a wealthy industrialist and shipyard owner, Hext took to the military because it was more interesting than getting a real job.  All of the odd skills picked up during his youth in his father's drydocks paid off in the steam-driven navy of the present, and while he is by no means a proper tall-ship sailor, when it comes to the new wave of tactics made possible by the advent of steam-powered screws he has few equals.  That said, scandal followed the young officer -- a bad habit of ending up in bed with the wives of his superior officers, among other things -- almost from the moment of commission, and as a result he has served the majority of his career in the Empire's most distant ports...where he has had excellent opportunity to indulge in the vices that keep his life interesting. 

The ultimate thrill, though, is in combat...and Hext has been tested so, many times, and in every case he has triumphed, often against severe odds.  His promotion was not meteoric, but it did come, with just over a decade at sea seeing him a Commander, just returned from service in the Orient.  He presently commands HMS Nymph, a sloop-of-war of the Amazon class, which is undergoing extended refit liable to leave him on the home isles for some months.  It is his preference, during such times, to keep himself relatively out of the RN's eye...which could well explain his presence at the Castello in times both past and present. 

His upbringing means that money does not mean perhaps as much for him as it might, and his inheritance has left him vastly well off.  While it is true that Hext is a tearaway, womanizer, and general scalliwag...he was also the only one of his siblings to display any real aptitude for ships and their construction, and as a result the shipyard is his.  This shocked his siblings and alienated him from the remnant of his family, which he has no issue whatsoever with.  However, he is still coming to terms with exactly what the possession of a business that lucrative means and largely leaves it management to the existing staff.  The only responsibility he has ever expected is that of the lives of the men under his command when they set to sea, and he will be damned if he allows his father to change that in death!

Highlights of career include service in support of Anglo-French efforts in Second Opium War as Lieutenant.  Commanded HMS Bouncer at Shimonoseki, and throughout British involvement in Japanese Civil War.
