26Character Gender :
Inter-sexed Altered Unique Male, Appearing and Happily Mistaken for FemaleCharacter Role in game :
Potential Shipboard Merchant Sexual Orientation :
Prefers Females, Dominates Interested Fetish or Kinks :
She is experienced, and Herring's unique, canine-like gender alterations are a kink unto themselves for others to consider. She loves being bitten or growled at, favoring the bestial side of human lust. She also loves especially a submissive female who can take a bit of a beating. Skillful heavy petting by a female makes easier that rare exception in which she submits to one. Bondage isn't favored, as it clashes with her wild nature. She is also keen on the use of rare, effective aphrodisiacs. Character Personality :
Anything but shy, and quite pleased with having a strange, sometimes morbid sense of humor. She respects and relates to intelligent people better, but her scoundrel antics know no bounds for those who take pleasure in and enable them. She is very well educated and curious about many things, but her greatest course is as an experienced stylist and young Doctor with so much talent. Herring is prone to refusing help from gentlemanly males, feeling that it encroaches upon her independence and her own hidden masculinity. Background Information :
She's been selling things on street corners since she was an abandoned inter-sexed child. She learned to hunt in the wilderness as a starving teen after a bad experience as a harlot, and began procuring leather from her kills. She would then obtain discarded metals and fabrics, and begin her natural talent of styling. Selling these goods helped her to become independent, avoiding stranger's beds and pickpocketing to at last make a life for herself, even in occasionally dyeing and styling females' hair. Herring would soon open a second story shop at the age of sixteen, for her work was becoming a great success in her hometown. This gave her the space in which to research alchemy, and, with some of her female customers interested in a discreet inter-sexed partner, lots of lustful encounters. Nearly a year passed, and illegitimate children were being born left and right, fathered by a naive Helyanwe. She would be extorted to oblivion and forced to work at a harrowing pace, realizing that her male gender perfectly functioned while her female gender, containing and usually hiding it, was merely for show.
Times grew rough for a young woman who felt outcast from society, but she kept experimenting with chemicals and salves, even dissecting dead animals, looking desperately for a creative way outside of her popular fashions to escape the poverty her child-bearing mistresses forced upon her. And that was when she discovered the true joys of alchemy and biology, though in a perverse and amateur way. Eventually, Helyanwe Herring, then known as Helen Smith, decided to cleverly negotiate with her blackmailing mistresses to have each payment occur on the same monthly day. This allowed her, a nearly eighteen year old girl to plan the great escape. And so, on the day of supposed payment, she took all of her earnings from the hardest working month in her life, a small fortune, and left. The next day, newspapers declared her demise to the world, for she had cleverly rigged her home and workshop to explode.
A young woman no one knew of walked into an embassy speaking fluent Russian, pleading for asylum... and that was when her true life began. Posing as a political and maritally abused refugee named Helyanwe Mihailov, a woman soon known as merely Herring would enter into a life of medical study. Professors in many medical, biological and alchemical fields regarded her as their most brilliant pupil. She would make money on the side altering clothing and fixing hair styles gone wrong for her classmates, and rise to the top of a few esteemed university classes in England. Once graduated, she seemed to disappear, sometimes dealing underhand with the wealthiest of women, offering miracles too good to be true, and yet simply were true. "Lets see what in Miss Herring's magic bag..." she would often say, shortly before presenting alchemical solutions that would pass as blatant witchcraft, whether it was a task as simple as making a miracle fuel that would carry a ship twice as far as usual... or something as complex as causing a suicidal woman to feel enough pleasure to mysteriously die from their next sexual release, giving them the ultimate release from life they are willing to pay for.
In her research, Helyanwe "perfected" her inter-sexed gender, performing her own brave surgery upon it to make it appear and function the same as a wolf's male sex, with a functional but infertile womanly gender as its sheath. She worked with chemicals to increase her sex drive, and with some materials to increase her gender's girth. The knot that contained her testes was the part that drove her partners to great amounts of pleasure. But few women lived to brag about it, because Helyanwe's role in society was to help them to die a painless and mysterious death.
Tired of traveling all around the English speaking world and having to end the lives of her sexual partners or sell her miracle goods discreetly, Herring sought The Pleasure Dome for a quasi-retirement, vowing to never use her talents to assist with suicides again. Her anachronisms in medical science are few due to her youth, but noted in some medical journals as repairing erectile dysfunction, assisting transsexual surgery research and stabilizing patients who are in shock with a secret formula which in fact is not a sedative. She has use, both as an experienced merchant and a clever doctor.
