Richard has been in a two year funk, where he just hasn't cared about anyone or anything, letting the Inn run its course, not repairing or fixing what needs to be fixed. Fewer travelers means less money, was his reasoning. But lately, he has started to see things in a new light, his eyes now looking at his daughters - all grown up - in a different way. The oldest should have been married by now, he reasons, but no suitors are in sight, no way to get the Inn back on its feet.
With the family mother gone, Amanda quickly picked up her chores to put some weight off their father's shoulders. She was already quite mature when their mother died, though she became a full-pledged adult only weeks later. She can be quite cold, especially towards her siblings, if they don't work and tries her best to let their father relax his mind by trying to take over most of his old chores as well as their mother's, leaving her with a busy daily schedule.
She is really worried both for the inn she grew up at and really don't want it to fall apart. The idea of seeking a man to marry has been postponed till their father became better, whenever that was to happen. It often means staying up past when everybody else has gone to sleep working and waking up before everyone else as well. Despite holding a steady poker-face, she is quite stressed and beg for their father to get well soon so she can have some of the pressure off her own shoulders again.
((She would of course not have as modern clothing though.
Phillip's dreams to find his calling at sea were quickly erased by the passing of his mother. His father, in his better days had always encouraged him and taught him as much as he could to work with his hands. Over the past few years, however, he has been forced to keep the inn free of leaks and in good repair without the aid of his father. Resentment has grown strong, but responsability keeps him focused. Phillip looks after his sisters, his muscular frame acting as a deterrant to the rowdier bunch of customers with brawling and other unsavory thoughts in mind. He himself knows little of the fairer sex, having only had an overnight tryst with a traveling blacksmith's daughter almost a year ago. His intrest was stirred then and he often finds himself seeing any one of his sisters and being curious if they are the same as the blacksmith's daughter.
Kayla or Kay for shortAge
Kay is an innocent in the truest sense of the word. She sees everyone as inherently good and will rationalize even the most brutal of actions into a positive light.
Kay works primarily in the inns stable and can sooth almost any animal. She also works as an almost healer for the inn. Kay's forest explorations have taught her much about herbs and she's learned to combine them into potent salves. Through trial and error, she's learned to heal wounds and set bones.
While she works primarily in the stables, Kay will often assist in the kitchen. She uses her knowledge of herbs to spice the food and occasionally will send a special dish to calm a raging barbarian. She disproves of drink as she's seen it make fools of even the most intelligent and as such refuses to taste even a drop.
Her sunny disposition make her popular and the source of endless teasing. Kay is still a virgin and while she's kissed a few men..she found it awkward and slightly off putting.
Kay much prefers her animals or her herbs to the fumblings of boys.
Gen can't help her sunny disposition. Even in light of her father's dwindling happiness over the past few years, she remains a carefree young woman. It is perhaps that very attitude that has attributed to her overwhelming sexual appetite. With the intention of making others happy, Gen has given in to the lust of countless farm hands and travelers.
Genevieve is always willing to help any member of her family in any way. She has been known to drop any chore given her tomake sure her sisters complete theirs.
Like her twin sister, Leela is innocent in most senses. Perky, cheerful, and positive, she usually looks on the brighter side of things. Like her sister, she has a way with animals and much prefers lingering in the stables to mingling with boys and men. Unlike her sister, she never took to cooking or knowing all the herbs which could flavor a meal or heal a wound. She does have a wide knowledge of flowers though, and is always brightening and decorating the Inn with their bright colors. Thinking that perhaps if the Inn was a little brighter, so would everybody in it be. Her other skill, besides animals and flowers, is sewing. She's not the best at that, but she can mend a dress so one would never know it had been torn, she also has made some of her own dresses. When she had spare change for materials to do so.
