Name: Brielle "Breezy" Garin
Gender: Female
Age: 27
Sexuality: Heterosexual
Personality: Plucky and sweet normally. Withdrawn and quiet when she is moody. It takes a lot to get her moody. While she is equally as comfortable alone, she can hold her own in a conversation.

Eyes: Hazel
Height: 5'6"
Body Build: Naturally slim with yoga muscles
Additional Physical Notes: For Breezy, tanning means just connecting her freckles with larger freckles - but it suits her. Even still, with her very fair skin, she likes to wear big floppy hats when outside for too long. She has a few tattoos but they are hidden and she won't share unless she really trusts someone AND has had a drink or two.

History: She had originally planned a trip to Caravanserai as a honeymoon but arrived solo. Breezy had the ambiguous job title of business consultant but she had managed to get in on the ground floor of a now up-and-coming advertising firm so she had done pretty well for herself. They expect her back hard at work in a few weeks. Or they did, until she sent an email from the airport that she wouldn't be returning. Looking for some relaxation before she figures out exactly what she was going to do with herself next, she actually doesn't feel too bad about her prospects.

Name: Alexandrena Kensington
Age: 24
Sexuality: Heterosexual
Personality: Ren is a bad girl, a party girl, and a loud mouth all wrapped into one.  She loves to flirt and will especially do so if her bodyguard is around.  She loves doing things she knows she shouldn't such as causing fights, partying, drinking, chasing adrenaline, escaping her bodyguard, and making comments no one wants to hear.  Ren is the kind of girl who always seems to have the right answers but doesn't like to open herself up to anyone else, making most of her relationships short-lived.

Eyes: Blue
Height: 5'7
Body Build: Shapely and Voluptuous
Additional Physical Notes: Ren's noticeable features start with the size of her natural body.  Naturally she has size 32F boobs, a rump that lives up to that ample bosom and a flat, toned stomach.  However her body is not perfect.  The young woman has a small scar at the edge of her eyebrow which she clearly attempted to cover up with a piercing.  Other piercings she has include a tongue piercing, multiple ear piercings, and a naval piercing.  While she does claim to have a tattoo, she will not say where or what.

History: Alexandrena Kensington was born with ODD (oppositional defiance disorder) to a tycoon family.  Though she never wanted for material possessions, in her youngest ages (>3), she always wanted for friends.  That is until her family decided to send her to an elite boarding school on the other side of the country.  While her parents made sure she still had the material possessions she could want that she was allowed to have, she was now around kids of her own age.  However she quickly found that when things went wrong, it always seemed to be her fault one way or another.  Even when she returned home for the summers, her older brothers used her as their scapegoat when they would mess up and she would get in trouble.

For a while, she put up with it the best she could, though her ODD got her into some trouble on her own.  Then at 13, there was Peter Townsend, a popular boy at Ren's school who she fell hard for.  The two had quite the relationship before everything went rocky.  Peter was ready for things Allie was not.  This he seemed to deal with begrudgingly until he got himself into some trouble with other boys in the school and Ren stood up for him when Peter did not want her too.  Without a word about breaking up, Ren found out Peter was with a new girl, a popular one only days later.  This changed everything for her.  By this point, Ren's brothers had grown up, one having joined the military, finding a close enough friend in Chris Nelson that Ren got the chance to meet Chris.  He had been handsome, smart, and though he looked quite intimidating when angry, kind.  He quickly became Ren's person, the one she trusted and felt safe talking to.  The only person who seemed to be able to talk some sense into the young girl, not that it seemed to help much anyways.

By the time Alexandrena turned 15, she had been kicked out of a few schools for her behavior and her name had been in the tabloids as part of so many scandals, it was practically a household name.  Her parents decided she needed a babysitting but they titled the position as her bodyguard in an attempt to get Ren to accept it.  The heiress wasn't stupid and she was going to make whoever took the job's life a living hell.  Five females had been hired in the matter of two years, none lasting more than six months.  Her parents didn't know what to do.  That is until they realized Chris was no longer in the military and offered him the job.  Ren loved the ability to have him around all the time but if he thought she'd make it easy on him just because they had a prior friendship, he had another thing coming.  This time, she was determined to do everything she had to to chase away the bodyguard.  It wouldn't be easy since he knew her moves, he knew how she did it with the others, he watched her grow up, and he knew who it was she was that she hid away from the world.  In fact, he had helped her learn and improve on her skills to get rid of previous bodyguards.

After a couple years, Ren gave in to the idea that she wouldn't be able to get Chris to leave the job, though she'll never tell him.  Still she finds entertainment in making his life as difficult as she can.  This year, she's decided to take her college courses online and explore wherever she wants in the world.  It just so happened that she heard of a beautiful resort in the middle of a scorching desert.

Name: Chris (Deandre) Marshall
Age: 29
Sexuality: Heterosexual
Personality: Hired primarily to be the bodyguard.  He is known for his Psych knowledge and protective mentality.    He has on occasion gotten rough protecting her but nothing he hadn't been able to handle with his martial arts and military background.

Eyes: Brown
Height: 6"2
Body Build: Muscular Athletic
Additional Physical Notes: Has a Dragon tattoo over left and right biceps

History:
Face Claim: LL Cool J

History: Chris was born to a marine father and a foreign diplomat’s daughter.  He was trained to salute before he could walk.  His father taught him three different martial arts before he was 12.  His father made it a point to try to make Chris ready, for what?  Chris didn’t even know.  Chris grew up a skinny kid, prone to acting out and becoming verbal mostly using rap as his outlet. 

Chris was a legacy Marine, there were reports that there was a marine back with the corps was first created. Though they were slaves, their training was absolute.  He was given one ray of hope, Wayne Kensington.  They became best friends in high school, that was till Chris found out he had a sister.  She was cute even then, but Wayne told him to stay away from her.  As a good friend, he did.   It was then Ren ran into Peter Townsend who apparently broke her heart. Chris heard about it from both Wayne and Ren, considering Chris was attracted to her, that didn’t sit too well with him.  He couldn’t do a whole lot to the boy because of their age difference, but Chris didn’t forget.  Even still he and Ren became closer. 

Not as close as he wanted, but time passed.  A wayward pickup game of basketball, strangely enough, Peter, ended up with a broken nose, most considered it an accident, Wayne wondered, but Chris knew it wasn’t.  It was about this time they two young men graduated and made a pact to watch each other's backs, Wayne wanted to go into the military but didn’t think he was Chris strong for the Marines.  Chris had a falling out with his father, for choosing his career over Chris.  So he went with Wayne into the Army.  The boys graduated in the top of their class and were deployed together and even came back together.  Chris did what he could from across the water to keep Ren out of trouble, sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t.

By the time the boys had gotten back home, Ren had developed quite the reputation even that of running through bodyguards like candy.  It was then that her parents asked Chris if he would take the job.  He really didn’t think it was a great idea considering how apparently he still felt about here but he was willing to help out for a little while that has been 7 years now he was more than adept at keeping up with his little Minx Princess…for now.

Name: Joseph Edwards
Gender: Male
Age: 34
Sexuality: Heterosexual
Personality: Humble, for the most part. Not one to get carried away with words, Edwards is a prime believer in "speak softly, and carry a big stick". Takes pleasure in simpler things for the most part, still trying to adapt to a "rich man's" lifestyle.

Eyes: Grey
Height: 6'5"
Body Type: Average
Additional Physical Notes: N/A


History: The eldest son of a single mother of six, Joseph grew up having to be the father figure for his siblings. Whenever he would ask about his own father, he would be met only with resigned silence. Growing up in a small town right on the border of Kentucky and Tennessee didn't help matters either. Music was the only thing Joseph found solace in, able to pick up an instrument and have a basic proficiency in playing it in a matter of hours, and a professional skill at it in a matter of months. Joseph made money for his family by playing on the sidewalks, dragging his siblings in tow while his mother would work for minimum wage because she had neither the skills or want to do any better.

But, that would change around the time he turned fifteen years old. Mama somehow wrangled herself a husband with money, and that man would fill the role Joseph had been playing for his entire life. Even though his younger siblings took to calling Mr. Ishmael Khan "dad" or "daddy", Joseph Edwards would only address him in a professional manner, somewhat resentful of being replaced. Mama Edwards would stop working completely, and become the submissive housewife she had always wanted to be.

Even though his beliefs were a bit dated, and his rules were strict, Khan would pay for musical lessons for Joseph, who would go on to graduate in the top ten percent of his class. As a gift, Khan would buy Joseph a brand new Les Paul, finally convincing the young man of eighteen to retire the beat up Danelectro he had bought for himself at a pawnshop at age eleven. And it was Khan who gave young Joseph a car and told him to go to Nashville to make something of himself, the younger children had already begun getting into some of the various business dealings Khan oversaw. It was then that Joseph started referring to him as Ishmael, and the two would be friends for the rest of Khan's life.

Joseph would do exactly as his stepfather said, and drive to Nashville. For six months, he would live in his car, playing on street corners until he was found by a record executive and hired as a studio musician. For the next fifteen years, Edwards would work his craft, becoming one of the most called upon studio musicians and engineers on all of music row. During this time, he lived as cheaply as he could, and working himself to the bone either in the studio or playing in bars. Knowing that his stepfather was a money savvy man, Joseph would trust his savings to Ishmael, who in turn, would grow both men's wealth, until...

"He's dead, Joe. The reading of the will is on Monday." Mama said over the phone, her voice sounding deflated, lifeless, for the first time in a long time. Joseph had just been up there for Easter dinner. Mr. Khan had been fine, serving his second term as a state senator...

It turned out Joseph was right, and between his own savings and the extra money Khan had put in through investments, profits...Joseph was suddenly left with more money than he could spend in two lifetimes. Joseph tried to work through the grief, but the work just reminded him of how much Khan had supported him, his siblings, his mama...and that's when he walked away and came home.

Laying on the couch, watching the same three shows on Netflix, not showering for days at a time, Joseph spiraled. Until he received an email, talking about an oasis in the Sahara. "Caravanserai".

Personality: He is very stotic, analytical he can be aloof at times, but he is wondering more who knows him and wants him or his money.  He can be friendly and charming at times and others stand-offish, once you are his friend he will give you the shirt off of his back...literally.

Eyes: Brown

Additional Physical Notes: A lion tattoo over his left shoulder.  Wings over his back along his shoulders..

 Face Claim: Donnell Blaylock Jr.

History:  Apollo has been trying to be the to be the son that his father as desired for him to be since forever.  He didn’t want to become a lawyer, he didn’t even want to be part of the company.  What he wanted was too flighty for his father.  But his father developed cancer and realized he missed out on doing all he wanted and needed to do with his family…with his son and daughter.  On his death bed he made his son swear to be a bit more free with his life, he could run the global tech company as he saw fit…but only after a year of discovery.  He could have his inheritance after a year and not before.  He had no idea his father’s last request would send him here.  Out here…in the middle of no where?!?

Name: Olivia "Liv" Evans
Gender: Female
Age: 23
Sexuality: Bisexual but a bit unattainable; She is flirty but super focused on her work goals thinking she has the rest of her life for love stuff. She does think people of both sexes can be equally yummy.
Personality: Driven. She wants to make a name for herself and get a spot in a very coveted and small community. Even with such big #lifegoals she always tries to do her best and won't step on anyone else to get where she wants to be. Even if everything inside of her is screaming to get a story or the scoop, she will be polite and kind to everyone she meets.

Eyes: dark brown
Height: 5'8"
Body Build: slim
Additional Physical Notes: She has a compass tattoo across her right shoulder moving across part of her chest. Part of the tattoo covers a scar that she has had since childhood.

History: Olivia graduated with a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication to find that the field was flooded with would be desk anchors and food critics. She had already created a somewhat popular following on social media of finding fun and interesting sites around her hometown and university whenever she had a bit of free time. An explorer at heart, Liv dreamed of getting to travel the world as part of her job. And there was a small niche profession that centered around documenting the posh go-to destination resorts and venues around the world. Who wouldn't want that job? Turns out - no one. In an environment where even the more obscure jobs were taken, how was a smart - up and coming personality like Liv going to set herself apart? Well - she booked herself a ticket to a remote desert airport and headed towards her destiny. Or more specifically - Caravanserai. A newly renovated resort in a remote location was just the thing to get her journalistic feet wet. She would write one hell of a story and then try to sell it.

And if she met some friends and had a fun moment or two? Oh, well, that would make for an even better story!

Name: Elizabeth Staunton

Gender: Female

Age: 25ish, though I have been known to claim otherwise

Sexuality: lesbian

Personality: kind of quiet, sometimes a bit of a loaner. Intelligent and nerdy, and you just know she has a tour guide book of the area, crammed with sticky notes and highlights. Can be very silly if she's comfortable, or willing to unleash the Southern scolding if provoked. In a lot of ways, her exhibited personality often is different depending on the people around her

Her accent is usually "American news reader" but about 5% of the time the southern comes out.

Eyes: blue

Height: 5'2, though her bad leg often makes her seem shorter. She secretly wishes she was taller than her staff (5'5) but that's just never going to happen.

Body Build: slender to the point of people often trying to feed her even after she's just eaten a large meal in front of them.

Additional Physical Notes: walks with a pronounced limp, and a staff, since her left leg is pretty beat up. She almost never exposes it in public though. The staff is a silvery light wood, polished and worn smooth by over a decade of handling

History: born and raised in Savannah Georgia, a place she (mostly) affectionately refers to as "the third weirdest city in the United States". Her mother is a teacher and her stepfather is an accountant. She had about as normal life as possible in a fairly small, fairly conservative place, while being 'that kid with the bad leg'.

Unfortunately, she wasn't smart enough to pretend to like boys in middle school, so she was also unintentionally outted as a lesbian

Name: Everett Oliver Steele
Gender: Male
Age: 38
Sexuality: Oblivious but receptive (some kind of confused mix of bi/pan/sapio/demisexual)
Personality: Friendly but easily distracted by all the things he thinks he has to get done in a day, he can be forgetful especially in social situations. He is very task-oriented and has trouble just relaxing. Even in his downtime, he will be seen with a book and a pen or highlighter, taking notes. He has a hard time saying no when there is a genuine need, and that has been taken advantage of in his past - especially in work and friendship circles. Though shy, Everett is friendly and generally happy. If he thought on it for a while he might decide he is lonely but he fills his time and focuses on the next thing to check off on his to-do list.

Eyes: Hazel
Height: 6' 2"
Body Build: Fit, broad chest, fuller as he has gotten older but still muscular

Additional Physical Notes: He scars easy and so he has some lines and marks on his chest, arms, legs, and abdomen that almost look like intentional tattoos or scarification. Each one has a story. Everett wears glasses. He has contacts but they dry his eyes out so when he does wear them he will often be seen rubbing or squinting. Embarrassing easily, he can't hide a blush to save his life.

History: Everett has spent most of his life trying to get somewhere. It's much more of an internal drive - not so much climbing the corporate ladder or getting the 'perfect life'. He has always been one to look inward and try to fix what he perceives as his own defects. To this end, he has always worked multiple jobs, spent lots of time running or working out, reading as much as he could, and hitting his own self-imposed grindstone. All that hard work and a keen eye for details have led him into the IT world as a software developer. He spent twenty years working 60 hours a week without stop, until he recently developed the new 'it' app and was bought out for a very tidy sum. He was allowed to stay on with the new company under one condition - he went on vacation. Somewhere expensive and inclusive, somewhere far away from what he is used to. He thought it an odd business plan to buy out someone's interest and then pay them to go relax in the sun for a few months. But always a rule follower, Everett agreed. Now he is far away from the computers and life that he knows.

As far as relationships go, Everett has been in a few 'interactions' with others but nothing that really held his attention like work or his projects had. All his past sexual interests have been female but he has been very close to his male friends to the point of being romantic companions that could have been more if he took his nose out of a book or away from his screen. He has been always been submissive to the wants and needs of others -with a desire to please even if he can't always see what is staring him in the face.

Name: Mark Watson
Gender: Male
Age: 26
Sexuality: Hetero
Personality: Mark is a listener more than a talker.  While not a complete introvert he does find some people a significant drain on his energy levels and is appreciative of the few people in his life that give rather than take from him.  Growing up where he did, Mark has a desire and need to prove himself.  Not necessarily to be "the best" but to certainly be unassailable in whatever field, event, social gathering he is participating in.  He uses this insecurity to drive a good deal of what he pursues.  He pays attention to his surroundings both when alone and particularly when in a social setting.  He can find large groups particularly difficult to navigate so he uses social queues to guide him in what he says and does.  He tries to give everyone the opportunity to simply be what they are but if he feels someone is being particularly ignorant or intolerant there is a good chance that he take steps to correct that person.  Mark is more of a fixer than a talker.  He'd rather get involved with a problem and get it resolved rather than talk about it at length.  When in a group, Mark will transition into a "mother hen" sort of role in order to make sure everyone is fed or cared for.  He thinks it allows him to "socialize" while keeping people at a distance because he's keeping busy.

Eyes: Blue
Height: 6'2"
Body Build: Fit, well-defined, clearly spends a significant amount of time in the gym and has a firm control of his diet.
Additional Physical Notes: A significant amount of Mark's upper body is tattooed with a smaller amount of his lower body also tattooed.

History:

A native of Northern Ontario, Canada; while being born in Thunder Bay, Mark grew up in a very small town thirty-five minutes north of the city.  His father, a smokejumper and his mother, a nurse practitioner had a relatively hands off approach with Mark.   This wasn't a bad thing.  Mark was a smart, serious child that would take risks from time to time but not before he had researched significantly regarding what he was going to do.  With his mother working difficult hours and his father outside of the house for extended periods, Mark was responsible for caring for and feeding himself and making sure he attended school regularly.  He wasn't unhappy and grew very familiar with the massive expanses of forest outside his town.

Mark got his degree in Natural Resources Management at Lakehead University and then followed his father into smoke jumping.  He spent eighteen months in British Columbia before being deployed for a number of years in various places in Northern Canada before a number of dire situations on the western coast of the U.S. provided him an opportunity to fight forest fires and rescue trapped civilians down there.

It was there that he got "cornered" by a local news team and ended up providing an interview for them about the current situation in California.  Mark had a "look" that people responded to, coupled with the fire fighter image and that he was a "polite Canadian", Mark became a bit of a poster boy for a short time. (Very short) After an awkward fifteen minute appearance on Ellen Degeneres' talk show, Mark had agents calling him.

Six months later Mark had put smoke jumping on hold and was trying his hand at the extremely fickle and aggressive world of modelling.

It sucked.

It was the worst.

Which really only encouraged Mark to try harder at it.

It was through some arm-twisting by his agent that he ended up on a reality television dating competition called Love Hurts.  She said it was going to be great for his follower numbers on instagram.

The show is going to be a stretch for Mark as he has never really had an actual "girl friend".  There's been a good many encounters with women but none of them have ever turned into anything permanent.  He wouldn't say he's afraid of or against commitment but he is keenly aware of the time needed to dedicate to someone else and make a relationship successful.  Love Hurts turned out to be an incredibly steep learning curve.

He lasted four days on the show before he was voted off by the other competitors as the least popular person.  The one connection he made, an intense and satisfying one with an American named Delaney opted to leave the show alongside of him.  For the last three weeks the two of them have been trying a long distance relationship type...thing.

It's tough.

Through all that and while both Mark and Delaney are dealing with publicity from the television show, Mark was contacted by the Ellen Degeneres Show once more.  It turns out that the Love Hurts television show is one of Ellen's guilty pleasures and she particularly followed the season that Mark and Delaney were involved in.  Mark was brought on to talk about his experience with Ellen.  While there Ellen surprised him with two things.  An offer to visit a remote, posh resort for six weeks on two conditions.  The first being that he blog and vlog his feelings about the resort twice a week.  The other condition being he attend the resort with Delaney.  Mark was...overjoyed to say the least.

So...the adventure begins

Delaney grew up in the middle of nowhere and she never really left. She travels to some of the world’s most remote locations as a Senior Mine Geologist, and has dedicated all of her adult life to her career. A nomadic lifestyle frequently interferes with her ability to have stable long term relationships, though her current romantic prospects are looking up.   

With Delaney working in such a hyper-masculine profession, in addition to being an attractive woman, she’s had to learn how to deflect male attention in inoffensive ways.  Through experience she’s discovered that the best way to do so is to interact with them more on their level:  In other words, she knows how to become “one of the guys”.  She can drink, curse, swerve and talk sports with the best of them. While that often leads to interesting and funny interactions with her male colleagues, it rarely results in viable romantic options.

She’s an independent woman that is comfortable with being single, but recently  in search of something more substantial...and also just for funsies she appeared on a reality TV show called Love Hurts.

While there was plenty of drama to be had, and she was relatively well acclaimed in her five long days on the show, she formed a connection with one of the other contestants, Mark Watson, and jumped ship with him when he was voted out. For the five weeks since the show they’ve been speaking regularly and kind of, sorta are unofficially an item? Regardless of labels, she’s fond of him and regularly convinces him to let her facetime with his dog Fomo...because priorities. Fomo seems cool with it, mostly because she likes just about everyone.

Now, after an appearance with him on the Ellen Degeneres show, she’s agreed to take a break from her position in rural Alaska and embark on a six week adventure at Caravanserai.

Name: Nova van Dishoeck
Gender: Female
Age: Mid 20s
Sexuality: Omni
Personality: Nova comes across as a bit of a firecracker, live wire, free spirit, party girl. She seems to live for the moment and doesn't want to think any further along than that. She will actively discourage deep or meaningful discussion in her presence, almost with such vigor that one might think she doesn't want anyone to realize she is capable of having them.

Eyes: Brown
Height: 5'8"
Body Build: Curvy
Additional Physical Notes: Is nearsighted, wears glasses when dressed casually or in private.

History: Nova doesn't like talking about her history. If pressed she will reveal that no, Nova was not her birth name, although it is her legal name, but she won't get into the why and how it changed. She may make a reference or two to the University of Wisconsin, but will claim she never declared a major and was just there to party. Her accent and culture is clearly middle American. Beyond that she'll just say she needed a vacation and doesn't seem eager to share the details of from what or how she's paying for it. She has an instagram account, nearly a year old, that she's posted to frequently, most often promoting a product, but even going over it with a fine tooth comb won't reveal much other than that most of her previous pictures were taken at popular clubs in Chicago or at the University of Wisconsin campus.

Name: Scarlett Woods
Gender: Female
Age:26
Position: Guest
Sexuality:Heterosexual
Personality: Scarlett is a quiet and reserved individual. She is friendly, but not the type that would approach someone and strike up a conversation. She can be charming and thoughtful, yet speak exactly what's on her mind. She's not afraid to speak the truth.

Eyes: Blue
Height: 5'9
Body Build: Slender
Additional Physical Notes: White water lilly on lower back

History: Scarlett came from an abusive family. After the death of her father when she was seven, her mother turned to alcohol and drugs to help ease her pain. Scarlett received multiple beatings in between, and when she was thirteen, her mother beat her so badly that she was hospitalized for months. It was there in the hospital where she heard someone singing and a guitar-strumming a beautiful melody. She looked over and noticed the young woman sharing a room with her was a talented musician. Scarlett and the woman became close friends immediately. After Scarlett's mother was put into prison, the kind musician took Scarlett in and taught her all the joys that music brings to the world. She then pursues a career with multiple degrees and doctorates. Scarlett later creates a rock band with a group of friends, calling themselves "Ultra Violet." The band became a major success around the world and soon met her future husband while on tour. A few years after they married, Scarlett found that her husband was having an affair with one of her bandmates and momentarily lost her passion for music. She needed to get a break from the stardom and chaotic lifestyle and find her true self again.

Name: Sir. Edward Carrington
Gender: Male
Age: 28 years old
Sexuality: heterosexual
Personality: Sir. Carrington is a mystic individual that speaks in in questions with a seductive twinkle though he is not a seducer. He is quiet and does not offer much information unless he is spoken to. He always appears busy but no knows why so it gives him that business like attitude. He uses logic and reasoning that seems too in-depth even for the simplest situations.

Eyes: blue eyes
Height: 6'1
Body Build: slender but athletic.
Additional Physical Notes: He has one small tattoo below his right ear that is the shape of a spade from a card deck. He wears suits almost everywhere, it would be strange to see him in anything other than suits. The suits are not a display of character or personality but rather like there is something reserved inside.

History: Sir. Carrington hails from Europe around the northern England area, though he is not even exactly sure. He is not sure who his parents were and has never asked. He grew up in a foster home and when he turned 18 he joined his majesty's royal army. He spent time in special forces working many years in Russia and Asia. He returned to England were he opened a watch making business. He runs another business behind that mask as an official advisor of foreign political affairs to governments around the world. That business is somewhat clouded in mystery and exactly what he does in this advising is not known to the public at large, in fact, to the public he is nothing more than a mere shadow of a CEO of a small business luxury watch maker. He has wealth and power through his escapades and has now wandered into the hotel for a much needed vacation away from his guised life.     

Face Claim: Naturally fair skin though not entirely pale. Much like that of the great Tom Hardy.
