Spence Academy: Class Of 1895

Recommended Posts

"Well Rylan, there isn't much to tell. Puts her hand over heart Ava Carter. I am the only daughter of a family of seven. I am not that extraordinary. My brothers are all serving in India at the moment, but I keep in touch with them regularly. To keep my mind from thinking of the danger they are in, I read...a lot. And I have a horse named Maverick." Ava smiled back at the boy. "Told you, nothing very interesting. What about you?"

Rylan listened intently as she spoke about herself. Her story was brief, definitely not one of the crazy ones you heard from a few select people, but interesting enough. He didn't mind the fact that she had a pretty normal story ? at least they had something in common. His was a bit different, but still, he never thought of it as something exciting.

"That's quite a large family," he commented, his eyebrows furrowing as he tried to imagine how difficult it would be to live with so many brothers. "It's interesting enough to hold my attention," Rylan added with a reassuring smile, but was guessing she would think he was just saying that.

"I'm Rylan Huntington and I moved to England from Ireland when I was three. I'm an only child and I've never had a pet. I like to walk around outside when the weather's nice. There's not much more to say about me, I don't think I have a very interesting life," Rylan told Ava, his smile faded again and he gave a shrug.

"Oh, and I'm nineteen. How old are you, may I ask?" he added, just curious since she hadn't said that.

Star Gauthier

Age: 17

Gender: Female

Appearance: Star is half asian half white, with long black hair that falls to her waist (when she leaves it down) but she usually keeps it in a tight knot at the nape of her neck. short (5') and petite from wearing a corset for years. wears mostly white because her mother always told her that it brings out her perfect bland of white and asian skin.

Personality: takes after her mother in that she loves to entertain people with talking about everything under the sun. somewhat of a flirt in the way she is always talking to men.

History: born in Japan. Her mother was a Geisha. Her father has always been high on the social food chain but he fell in love with Star's mother and brought her to England where they got married and had Star. Star has no brothers but she has 3 young sisters that live in London with the rest of her family.

Other: new at the school, she went to another school for a couple of years but was politely asked not to return because the head mistress assured her parents that "Star has no hope of finding a suitable husband if you are speaking out of turn"

I don't think we'll be continuing this one, but maybe we could restart it (or something similar to it) with everyone that's here now. I'm not sure if they'd be interested, but if you can drum up support, I'm game to try it again.

I stumbled upon this forum after I read "A Great and Terrible Beauty". This forum is an awesome idea, and I know I'm really late but...

-STATS-

Full Name: Hope He Feng

Age:16

Gender:Female

Appearance:

Hope

Hope is of Chinese descent, and has beautiful chocolate brown eyes, as well as dark brown hair down to her knees. Her hair has tints of red in the sunlight, and is naturally straight. She is 5'8, which she finds too tall for her liking. Her skin is pale and smooth, without any imperfections. She has delicately sculpted high cheekbones, as well. Long eyelashes adorn her eyes, and she has a straight, decent nose. Her lips are cherry red and full, and are her best feature, next to her steady, intelligent eyes. She weighs around 100 pounds, and is thin almost to the point of gauntness. Her exotic beauty captivates the attention of many.

Personality:

She is a very outgoing girl, a bit outspoken but well-mannered and polite. She has no trouble following authority, and has a quick, witty sense of humor. She is intelligent and crafty, a quick learner and star student. Reading is her favorite pastime, and despite her seriousness, she also likes to have fun. She is very practical, detests dishonesty and frivolity, and is very levelheaded and cool in case of an emergency. One of her faults is her impatience and her tendency to be overly-sensitive at times.

History:

Hope's father, a merchant, is an important figure to trade between Great Britain and Mainland China. He is the owner of a thriving trading company, Feng and Sons. Despite rampant racism from the mainly all-white trading community, his intelligence and bravery has allowed him to succeed. He currently owns a house in the English countryside, as well as a small mansion in Belgravia. Hope's mother, Madeline, is also a quite practical woman, who has managed to deal with the racism, seclusion, and gossip the family garners with maturity and wisdom.

Hope, the second daughter in a family of 4, was born in Belgravia, London and promptly sent to her father's estate in China to live with relatives as soon as she turned 2. She grew up in the tranquil Chinese countryside. But, her father asked for her to be sent back to London again in 1887, so she could have a proper English education. Under the guidance of renowned tutors, she mastered the languages of English, French, and Latin, as well as advanced mathematics, European history, and the sciences.

Other:

She is best friends with Edmund Ashdown, whom she first met when she was 10.

-STATS-

Full Name: Edmund Lucas Julius Ashdown

Age: 17

Gender: Male

Appearance:

Edmund

Edmund, at 6’2, is quite tall. Some might say that his harsh, fierce features are frightening, however. He has honey-blond hair, and deep blue eyes, which are so blue they are almost navy. His beauty, combined with his lean, tall and muscled stature, regularly intimidate strangers, especially young ladies.

Personality:

Despite his looks, Edmund is a kind and comical person. He enjoys making people laugh and sometimes goes a little too far in his pranks. All joking aside, he is an ambitious, intelligent student who enjoys the company of other learned people such as himself. He has a lot of self-confidence, and some might even call him vain. But, all those that know him know that he has a heart of gold.

History:

Edmund’s life has been relatively uneventful. His father, Richard, is the Duke of Chilcott, and a respected man in London society. His family resides in Belgravia, and also owns a palatial country house in Scotland. Prior to attending Spence Academy, he has attended a famous and prestigious boy’s school near the Yorkshire moors. The eldest son of the duke, he is the heir of his father’s title and estates.

Other:

He is best friends with Hope Feng, and also has a secret crush on her. But due to the restrains of Victorian society, they cannot be together due to their different racial heritages.
