Requested by: Liz
Duration of Need: Indefinitely
Character Name (if established): Lord Richard Grafton
Any Established Facts: Elder brother of my characters Julianne Grafton and Katharine (Grafton) Steele. Has a twin, Lord Henry Grafton. Born 1788 (age 23). Recently returned from fighting Napoleon in the Iberian Peninsula with *gasp* a Spanish bride (my character). Probably has a small rebellious streak, but is none the less very family oriented and probably unsure how to introduce the Grafton clan to his new wife.
PB: Toby Stephens
NOT REQUESTED AT THIS TIME

Requested by: Liz
Duration of Need: Indefinitely
Character Name (if established): John Quinn, Duke of Wycombe
Any Established Facts: John Quinn is the Duke of Wycombe. His father died during his infancy and he was raised as a son of the Marquess of Raulings. He married Lady Penelope Beckett (5 years his senior) and the couple have a young daughter, Genevieve. He resides in London but since coming into his majority, he has had to spend more and more of his time as the head of the Quinn family, leaving little time for his adoptive father and half-siblings. Though raised just like any of his brothers, he's always felt a bit different, knowing that one day he would have to pull away from them to lead the Quinn family. He's a bit cooler and wiser now than he might have been in the past, but because he grew up in a loving household, there would have been many visits to Grafton Park and its boisterous occupants.
PB: Not specified

Duration of Need: Indefinitely
Character Name (if established): Penelope (Beckett) Quinn, Duchess of Wycombe
Any Established Facts: Lady Penelope Beckett had spent several seasons on the marriage mart without making a match. Her mother had all but given up hope when Penelope struck up a conversation with the Duke of Wycombe. He was charmed and amused by her forthrightness (she had long given up trying to be a coy debutante) and she appreciated how he actually listened to what she was saying. To the surprise of all of Society (and his mother's dismay due to the lady's age), the duke proposed. They have a young daughter, Genevieve, but no heir. The family resides in London.
PB: Abbie Cornish (suggested but not required)

Duration of Need: Indefinitely Role Filled
Character Name (if established): Caroline Gardiner
Any Established Facts: Sister of Baron Ackland, being chaperoned this Season by her sister-in-law, Lady Ackland (played by Liz). She has a fortune of £10,000, is the daughter of a baron, and has connections through her sisters to Baron Parkhurt and a second son of a viscount. She's pretty, outgoing, and excited to be the only one of her sisters to have a real London debut, which is made possible by the money Lady Ackland brought to her marriage. At the same time, she knows that it is her duty to marry this Season, as it would not be fair to impose on her sister-in-law's kindness for too long. Moreover, she enjoys spending time with her many nieces and nephews and looks forward to starting a family of her own.
PB: Carey Mulligan (blonde)

Requested by:LIN
Duration of Need: Indefinitely
Character Name (if established): Darcy Tessington
Any Established Facts: Viscount Tessington, 33 years of age, husband to socialite Alethea Tessington. While his title is not the highest in the realm, his family is respected, old and wealthy. Darcy and his wife married as friends. To the ton they are the perfect couple, but behind closed doors, the both conduct affaires of their own.

QUOTE

Ally has a respectful, open relationship with her husband, and since the birth of her son, neither of them have found a need to stay faithful to the other. Behind closed doors, they know that they are not in love with each other; the emotion that they have, purely only pertains to friendship, affection and respect. She chooses her companions, and has them quite frequently. She and her husband, they have an agreement to never question, and to give trust infinitely; Darcy trusts Ally infinitely to never make any mistake that could affect his family, and vice versa. To her credit, Ally has never given her husband a cause to worry for her (Ie. Get pregnant). In society, they are a perfect couple, frequently sharing dances and the like.



PB: Open to ideas.
