Oppression, violence, classist notions, fish & anything else that reminds him of home Role/Archetype:
The Innocent IdealistPersonality:
Open and friendly, though extremely awkward when speaking to women since he has had, quite literally, no experience in that area. Well-read and full of admiration for authors and other progressives of the time. He is very willing to experience new activities, though he will have to overcome some deep-rooted inhibitions. He only requires a push... Background/History:
As the youngest of three sons born to a cannery owner and his wife in the great port town of Grimsby, there was never any question about Alistair's future: first to the business, second to the military, third to the Church. The moment he finished basic schooling Al was shipped to the south of England and thrust into Rev. Wackerbarth's Select Seminary for Young Gentlemen in preparation for his advanced theological training.
All would have gone very differently had Wackerbarth not been a bit slack about locking the windows properly after lights out. A few of his flock slipped away one May evening and discovered a brave new world in the smoke-filled confines of Minchin's Coffee House. It became a habit for the young men to return there night after night, making friends with the lads from the dissenting academy across the street and soaking in the heady brew of politics, social reform, and caffeine.
A few years passed, during which Alistair found himself questioning everything he was taught during the day and only truly feeling alive by night. On the date of his graduation and imminent transfer to Westminster, he was lost to a crisis of faith. How could he go about improving the world when he stood poised only to contribute to the miserable state of society? As Alistair huddled mournfully over his Turkish blend that evening, his dearest friend - Dudley Fortescue - proposed a reprieve.
There was scandalous talk of a new hotel called The Castello, a tiny pocket of social utopia inexplicably located in Dover. Dudley made his friend a gift of the cost to travel and stay at the hotel for a fortnight. Alistair would be free to plan out his own future in an atmosphere unencumbered by the state's morals and familial expectations. Relieved beyond words, Alistair took the generous offer.Additional Character Info:
Alistair's radical behavior thus far has been restricted to over consumption of coffee and the odd, friendly fondle under the table from other young men. (Women were not permitted inside the coffee house and whores had little financial interest in schoolboys.) He is, however, a very quick study.
