[Eliot Ainsworth] - sketch: (old) one | two
An orphan at age 8, was raised in an orphanage, where he first met Alistair. A quiet but surprisingly astute boy, he became good friends with Alistair for the 10 years during which Alistair's father was the orphanage's benefactor. Eventually, however, Alistair would become his greatest rival as a fellow detective. After he left the orphanage at the age of 18, Eliot took up residence with Phillip in his antiques store, which attracts some rather strange characters that afford Eliot an endless supply of singular cases.

Age: 18
Eyes: gold
Hair: black
Height: 5'6"

[Alistair Ravensdale] - sketch: (with Eliot) one
Eliot's rather pompous aristocratic rival and erstwhile friend. After the falling out between them, Alistair, who is a bit of a spendthrift, was cut off by his mother and moved to London to pursue his passion of crime-solving.

Age: 20
Eyes: gray
Hair: blond
Height: 6'

[Woolfardisworthy] - sketch: one
Alistair's faithful butler. Name is pronounced like "Woolseri," "Woolie" for short. Very upbeat and cheerful, helps Alistair on his cases. Because of an affair Alistair's mother had with Woolie's father, Alistair is actually Woolie's half-brother, a fact neither of them knows.

Hair: Red
Eyes: Blue
Height: 5'8"
Age: 14

[Mycroft Ravensdale]
(deceased) Alistair's father, he was once a philanthropist who donated a great deal of money regularly to Eliot's orphanage, and often took his favorite son with him when he toured the product of his generosity. He never loved his wife, who had many affairs without his knowing. Outwardly moral, he hid a secret that might have even caused his untimely demise. When Eliot was 16, Mycroft died while making one of his rounds of the orphanage, in a fire which is widely believed to be started by Eliot. Alistair, who also believed this, never fully forgave Eliot and broke off their friendship.

[Ian]
Eliot's best friend and protector at the orphanage. Gentle and caring, he was like Eliot's big brother during the 10 years they spend together. Though he tried to keep his feelings for Eliot chaste, he secretly was in love with Eliot, but was never able to tell or show him before he died in the same fire that Alistair's father Mycroft died in. However, later on, he makes a mysterious return...

Hair: brown
Eyes: blue
Height: 5'11"
Age: 18 when he died, 2 years older than Eliot

[Aden] - sketch: one
A boy at Eliot's orphanage who made Eliot's life hell whenever he could. The reason behind this is that Eliot bears a strong resemblance to his own brother, with whom he was in love and who betrayed him years ago. Because of this, he both hates and loves Eliot in equal amounts, but can only express emotions in terms of psychotic rage and violence.

Hair: Black
Eyes: Black
Height:
Age: 19

[Cyril] - picture: one
A sultry young junkie prostitute who becomes acquaintances with Eliot and sometimes helps him on cases, if somewhat reluctantly. Generally, he is snarky and cynical, even psychotic at times, but privately he has a desperate, twisted love for his pimp, Mr. Wang, so he tries best to please him whenever possible.

Hair: strawberry blond
Eyes: green-blue
Height: 5'7"
Age:

[Mr. Wang]
Cold and stoic, he is a pimp who rarely shows any emotion, even when abusing his whores. He fucks all his whores carelessly, even though he knows Cyril is in love with him, and though he likes Cyril somewhat for his cutting wit, he cares little for troublesome maudlin emotions. In addition to trafficking young boys, he deals opium and sometimes is useful to Eliot in obtaining information about shady clients. However, he helps whoever seems to benefit him the most, and so at times gives information to Eliot's enemies.

Hair: black
Eyes: black
Height: 6'3"
Age: 27

[Phillip]
Owns an antiques store whose patrons are more often than not sinister and otherworldly. Seemingly carefree and flippant, the dark-skinned Phillip has a typical player attitude, and first met Eliot after Eliot had left the orphanage. He offered Eliot a room in the basement of his store, in exchange for Eliot's assistance in running the store. But is there another reason behind this kindness?

Hair: very light blond, almost white
Eyes: gold
Height: 6'2"
Age: 30-35 (?? We said it was around that age...)

[Basil]
Eliot's bespectacled friend who helps him on cases, bit of a bookworm and rather meek. (I think we DID talk about him more, but I can't seem to find it Dx)

Hair:
Eyes:
Height:
Age:

[Thierry]
A con man, because con men are awesome.

Hair: Auburn with gold streaks
Eyes: green
Height: 6'1"
Age: 27-30?

[Gabriel]
A blind fortune-teller who is part of a traveling carnival, plays the flute and makes obscure but accurate predictions that Eliot must decipher.

Hair: dark
Eyes: silver-white
Height:
Age:

[Miquel]
The good Spanish twin, priest. Used to be in the same Catholic orphanage as Eliot and Aden and Ian. He and his brother were taught by a kindly priest in the orphanage who unfortunately was only able to impress ideas of morality into Miquel and not Simeón.

Hair:
Eyes:
Height:
Age:

[Simeón]
The evil Spanish twin, became member of the Spanish Inquisition. Used to run around with Aden's group and make life hell for Eliot and others.

Hair:
Eyes:

[Vivien]
The random newsboy and sometimes prostitute who will apparently be of use at some time or another.

Hair:
Eyes:
Height:
Age:

[Oliver]
Aden's little brother who disappeared when Aden was 11.

Hair: black
Eyes: black
Height: around 5'6"

Holy shiettttt sfdglkfdgjlkdfalsdkf;df; *CHOKES ON OWN TONGUE* I love you ;A; ♥ The descriptions are wondrous and fresh (it's like I'm learning about our characters for the first time ;3; ...and hopefully not because we've neglected them for so long XD), the synopsis is engaging and interesting, and the layout is beauuuuutiful ;3; *takes your hands in mine and weeps rapturously* I can't believe you sifted through all those chats! It must've taken FOREVER, seeing as how we digress like tangents on a circle .-. *stoned to death for horrible math joke* I'm pretty sure I recall Thierry's hair being an auburn color with golden streaks running through it, and I can't quite recall what color his eyes were but for some reason I feel like they're green :0 and the random gypsy guy! I don't think we actually discussed him in chats, I think we talked about him over the phone XD I think he was...dark-skinned (forgot his hair color--was it like Philip's?) and was blind, so his eyes were white. He played....the flute? And was an acrobatic performer (knife-thrower?? Palm reader?? Lolol I can't remember) in some carnivale/gypsy caravan :D also I just remembered that we had two other characters, twins who worked for the Church! One was like, a priest, and the other a torturer for the Inquisition 8D Simeon and....Miquel? I know the nice one was named Simeon, anyway. And I'm glad you changed Mr. Wang's height lolol, I think 6'5" might be a little freakish XD

AHHH PRECIOUS I'M SO THRILLED ;3; ♥ I'll see if I can find some of the sketches I did and crop out each character :D

♥ omggg our chats are like, the most incomprehensible things ever XD *hacks through them with a machete* I'm pretty sure I missed things, but we can go back later to pick out what plot we've established so far *already perspiring heavily at the thought* TAT;;;

We also completely forgot about our cute little paperboy, Vivien!! x3 I only stumbled upon him by chance, because I think we maybe talked about him like, twice in passing lol 8D And the twins, I think the evil one is actually Simeón, because we liked Miquel in The Shadow of the Wind and he has special significance for us? XD The twins were in the orphanage as well, and the evil one ran around with Aden's group and tortured Eliot gleefully because he is a halfbreed :D They should probably be around the same age as Aden, then? How old is Aden, the same age as Alie or something?

Wow, we have a ton of character descriptions still to finish 8D I kind of just filled in Thierry's height as 6'1" since we're going by the seme scale XD Should Phillip be taller or shorter than that?

*trembles under the voluminous weight of our digressions TAT*

OH! I think you're right, Miquel WAS the good one. And I completely forgot about them living in the orphanage @w@ and yeah, I think they (and Aden) are probably Alie's age, maybe a little younger by a few months or something. 20, or perhaps 19? Also I finally remembered the gypsy's name!! GABRIEL :D and I'm so horrified (but not surprised, lol) that we overlooked poor, abused Vivien =3= I think he (like most paperboys lol) supplemented his income with occasional prostitution ('cornerboys' as they were called, yes?) so he'd probably be buddies with Cyril and, like him, have some sort of contact with dealers, pimps, whores, and the occasional closeted gentleman desperate for a shag. :0 Maybe Vivien can frequent a different part of town from Cyril, so Eliot can have a wider 'knowledge' base? Or maybe he could be Alie's primary contact with the underbelly of London? Or work for both of them? Hmm...:D

LOLOL thank god for the tried-and-true seme scale xD let's make Philip 6'2" just because he's older than Thierry 8)

HAHAH, god Eliot is like friends with the entire underbelly of London XD XD They probably only want to buddy up with him because he's so rape-able 8D ♥ Yes yes, Eliot's army of whores can do reconnaissance for him and give him all sorts of juicy leads :3 I wonder if he'll have to take up grifting or something to pay all his contacts for information though, because you know those street people don't like doing things for free *swt* except for the ones who are really his friends, I guess...but even then, they're all crack whores and riffraff and...Basil :U Maybe Thierry can help him out....we need to develop him more XD I have no idea about his background at all, I think he and Vivien are probably the most neglected babies of the bunch ;3; There needs to be something that happens that cements his friendship with Eliot...maybe Eliot helps him get out of a tough spot on one of his cases and they kind of become friends?

Another thing, is this story going to take place over the course of several years? Because Eliot probably needs a while to make contacts and get used to the sinister underworld and its secret workings :B and he's only 18 when he leaves orphanage so...yeah ._.

OMG yes we really need to figure all of that out--I'll email you about it (along with the list of which characters each of us is supposed to design 8D) okay bumblebee? 8D I'm worried that we'll end up giving away our whole (nearly non-existent lol) plot on LJ lol

ps: lol Eliot exchanges gropes for information, of course 8) five minutes' worth for every ounce of information they give him :B (HAHA. I wish.)

Oh, it doesn't really matter, if you'd rather we not post plot things on lj, then we won't :D Or we could f-lock them until the general public is ready for them XD; *eagerly anticipating your ideas*!
