V1989- He looks too young. Plus, he's approved to be a Xantelli of minor level powers and unsure blood. That means while he has full control over normal humans his powers can be overridden at will by any other family member. It also means that his slaves are fair game for other family members, though in most cases his slaves will be respected as his. His powers may solidify with time and practice, or if he is not careful his powers might go dormant for a time.
Draft for the Brothel.
At the edge of the town there is a paved road that leads into the eastern forest. Not much traveling is required until the road comes into a clearing of the tropical forests. There is a brick wall with spiked fence and a gate of steel bars. It opens to a narrow strip of lawn before one reaches the doors of a red brick mansion with a tile roof. The building seems rather small, a quaint mansion of two stories. There are many windows that look out at the yard from the elegant bedrooms of an estate that has the charm and mildness of a bed & breakfast. Only the real attraction isnít what is seen, itís what isnít.
Once inside there is a small coat room with stone floors. From there the next set of wooden doors with glass center panels leads into the main lobby. It is a quaint sitting room carpeted in red with oriental patterns. The furniture is of the Victorian style and the lighting resembles gas lamps. Behind the lobby is a large kitchen where food is prepared for any guests of the mansion. Upstairs there are two halls, each with ten doors to bed rooms that are luxuriously furnished and provided with full baths. It is here were wealthy guests can order the type of person they wish to bed with down to the last detail and receive them. The prices at minimum are 100,000$ an hour as there is no risk of STD from the prostitutes here.
But itís not what is above, but what is below, that holds the most interest. Behind the main lobby there is a room that is empty except for another door. This door leads to the first basement of the Xantelli brothel. This basement is a wide open space surrounded by soundproofing. Besides the entrance from the lobby of the mansion, there is also an entrance from either side of the building that leads down here. Here, there is a full bar that is always staffed. Across from the bar is a small stage with sound and lighting equipment for parties. The ceiling is paneled with multi-color lights and rotating spotlights hang from regular intervals. The bar is rarely silent, as it is usually filled with tourists looking to party or family members who like to have a good time.
Behind the bar there are doors that lead into a full liquor closet, only this closet contains a secret entrance to a tunnel that leads deeper underground away from the mansion. It is known as the third basement and is where some of the slaves are kept. Hall after hall contains rooms no bigger than prison cells. Here, unbroken slaves still in training are kept and fed until they have an opportunity to work. Maria has an office and a lush bedroom among these locked room and staffs them with the help of servants and broken slaves. She is free to have her way with anyone she pleases at any time.
Below these slave rooms is a torture chamber where agents who are caught are bought to be played with. The chamber has walls of stone but is kept clean and sterilized. There are boxes, poles, ropes, pulleys, straps of various shapes and sizes. Chains and manacles hang from the walls. A large oak cabinet holds a collection of whips, another a collection gags, yet another a collection of chains. In the center of this room is a marble table large enough to lay a large person on.
Besides this torture chamber there are other rooms. Five are completely unfurnished with a wide open space and high ceiling, though plenty of lighting hangs from above and there is call button on the metal doors. There is another set of doors to the back that opens to a labyrinth. These are the sick dreams rooms, for those whose dreams are eccentric, or not in line with the standard tastes. It is here that one can have a partner who is twisted to whatever sick fantasy they may have as long as it is not something that would be deemed dangerous to their life. Though the Xantelli need not worry if their creations kill somebody, only if they kill somebody.
The fourth basement is also known as a labyrinth. The prisons down here contain the most twisted creations of lust and power that anyone can think to imagine. Many of these once human creatures are not permitted to see the light of day except in very rare circumstances. At times, Maria opens their prisons to allow them to take out beastly lusts on each other. The screams of these orgies echo through the ventilation shafts and can sometimes be heard in the bar and dance hall below the mansion. On occasion Maria herself can disappear down there, as she sometimes likes to play with her Ďpets.í Those who have been altered so much they can no longer contain their lusts or barely appear human live down here.
When one ventures down here they do so at their own risk. The halls are kept dark and the sounds from the room echo throughout to give the labyrinth a hellish quality. It seems to stretch on for an eternity, each room having large metal doors with a sign indicating the name or label of the occupant above the entrance. The dťcor of the rooms and what you find upon entering changes from room to room, as the rooms are built around the occupants. What you can encounter in the labyrinth is only limited by your imagination. The servants who clean and deliver food to the creatures down here say nothing lest Maria give them a new home here as well.
