Louis Cross was born into a middle-class family, his father owner of a horse dealership and had a happy though brief childhood. It was soon time for him to be sent to school. He learnt many things at the school, from reading, writing and arithmetic to Latin, swordsmanship and boxing. He was there when he leant that the stables and his family’s home next to it had burnt down.
This left the school in some trouble, as Louis had no other family and the fees hadn’t been paid in full, so instead of keeping him on any longer they sold him into an apprenticeship at a factory. He barely stayed there a month, when the manager noticed Louis’ fine features and sold him for a profit to a bordello.
For seven years, Louis worked at different whore houses in different cities until he arrived at the Lamb In Briars, where he stayed for another nine. The Lamb In Briars catered to clients who where were inclined to pain and the giving or taking of it, and it was where the majority of Louis’ scars came from. One client became obsessed with him, and tried several times to buy Louis as his personal catamite, though Louis refused to allow it. Deciding to make Louis see reason, the client ruined Louis’ face, so he could no longer work and would have to take up the offer.
While still healing, Louis was visited by Master Ryan, who offered him a position. Louis accepted.
He has been at the Teahouse several months now, though he still finds it a surreal experience he enjoys his work a lot more than whoring. Player's O/Os: Thread
