    [BCOLOR=transparent]Welcome to the roleplay, Ending the Storm! This is a nautical story set during the 17th century, otherwise known as, [/BCOLOR][BCOLOR=transparent]Age of the Buccaneers[/BCOLOR][BCOLOR=transparent]. Romance, drama, and action all come into one roleplay as a small group of female heirs are abducted and taken away one night during the full moon by an enemy they’ve known through stories shared by their families- pirates. [/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Fearful of them, each girl must work together to survive and find a way out of hell at sea. One girl believes she may have an idea, and with a clever face, she hopes that her idea may outrun the pirates and help every heir find an easier way towards freedom. It is their only chance at survival, but many days at sea, who knows what may end up occurring? They have no knowledge of what the future may hold, so all they can do is pray. [/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]The story begins with a band of appalling pirates, who have a horrendous reputation amongst Britain’s authorities, on the high seas, during the 17th century. After they disappeared 30 years ago, these troublesome and daring pirates, known as the Ocean Shadows, have decided to resurface their appearance with a specific motive. The captain has a strategy in mind; a plan to abduct the many heirs in line for the throne with a simple note of ransom to all royal families. One by one, each heiress within Britain disappears into the night. [/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Each young woman’s clothing, most prized possessions, and everything else is left behind. It is mandatory that each family cooperate and hand over their fortune before the time limit reaches its peak. If they do not comply with the demands, their daughters will be slaughtered and sent back in a neat little package. The Captain of the Dragon’s Cutlass promises to spill much blood if his demanded riches are not handed over in due time, but he also promises a safe return home if he was guaranteed his fortune to help aid him and the crew. [/BCOLOR]

    [BCOLOR=transparent]Four young girls are captured at the beginning, each from their respective countries in Britain. They are now fighting to survive, but as time passes by, despite the crew’s reputation, every single one of them find themselves in a situation where the must sacrifice their freedom or the conventionality.

    Jacqueline Rose Persinette


    Nickname: Jack, Rosie
    Age: Twenty-four (24)
    Gender: Female
    Occupation: Heiress
    Affiliation: The long line of Persinette's.

    Appearance Logistics
    Height: 174cm (5ft. 8.5in.)
    Weight: 58kg (130lbs.)
    Hair: Light Brown w/ sun kissed Blonde streaked through
    Eyes: Brown

    Jacqueline got her long legs from her father, but her oval face and chocolate eyes were inherited from her mother. She has and always will be an adventurer of the outdoors and both her physique and skin tone mirror this passion. She was always scolded for being a tomboy though so her body is always tightened and tied to show that of a young, sophisticated lady. Speaking of skin, hers is free of any blemishes or marks, but upon the ship a young member of the crew had accidentally hit her with the end of his splintered broom, while she was on deck. A large chunk of wood cut across her cheek and the wound has yet to heal fully-- Jacqueline is sure that it may scar. Her light milky locks cascade to mid-breast, but the abnormality of the splatters of honey hay that have "corroded her beautiful hair" (quoted from her mother) have forced her to continuously keep it up. On the ship, strands of hair had fallen free from their place so she asked another girl to dispose of the string that trapped them. All in all, Jacqueline is a healthy young adult, but she doesn't have much hope that her parent's would give up their fortune for her. Well, her mother wouldn't, she would simply pass the inheritance to her younger sister instead while her father hopelessly searched the seas until his death. Yes, such morbid thoughts.


    Personality Traits
    (+) Hardheaded; practical and realistic; not sentimental. When Jack is adherent to a certain idea, plan, or notion, she will not let anyone walk all over them. She does not like to be wrong, and when it is apparent that she is she just won't have it. This is the main barrier between her and her dear mother; her mother wants her to comply to all wishes, but Jack knows that it's more important to stick to your own gut-feelings than follow the ones of others. She is the first to stand up when something weary is amidst and the last to step off the battlefield, metaphorically-- she has never once been in a real battle. I mean except for that one time...
    (+) Unsweetened; without sugar or a similar substance having been added. Jack does not believe in making the truth less harsh by adding artificial sweeteners. If you can't handle the heat then get out of the kitchen; if you cannot hand the unwilling truth that life brings than maybe you just do not belong. Being kidnapped has only hardened this belief in Jack and she is adamant to explain to the fellow girls that these pirates will not keep their word when the time comes.
    (+) Charitable; of or relating to the assistance of those in need. Despite her tough anterior, Jack was always the one to take her daily allowance and buy bread for the commoners when she was younger. She was unaware of the rift of stature between her and the starving butcher boy. The little girl she once was only wanted to help those in need. To this day, no matter what the cost, be it her life or another, she will always try to save the other or risk her own life for another.
    (+) Encouraging; giving someone support or confidence; supportive. Her encouraging speeches may not be the most kind-hearted or full of love, but they are genuine and Jack will continue to make them so. She knows that these girls are pretty under the weather so she doesn't mind offering up some reality checks once in awhile.
    (+) Tenacious; persisting in existence; not easily dispelled. All of these traits add up to the one that drives Jack the most. Her tenacity. No matter what the situation or outcome she will continuously butt her head against a problem until she can solve it. She is not a quitter; her father did not raise a quitter. Life can throw some pretty brutal curve balls (exhibit A would be the ship she is on and exhibit B would be the life she grew up with), but she finds solace in those obstacles and will not back down from anything or anyone until someone makes her. Even then, she probably won't shut up.

    (-) Bluntness; uncompromisingly forthright. It made be a positive trait to lay down the truth how it comes, but it can also get Jack into trouble. Not a lot of people want the truth-- the would rather be spoon fed sugar can until their teeth fall out-- and if that is so then Jack is the person you want to run to with your problems and complaints. This trait has broken many friendships as well as get her a scolding at the dinner table simply because Patricia thinks the boy in her school is in love with her. The girl is twelve! What does she know about like or love? Anyway, Jack just cannot stand being lied to just to be saved a broken heart; it's a fact that in the long-run she would've been broken hearted anyway because she was lied to.
    (-) Humor; the ability to express humor or make other people laugh. Jack does not have this trait. She's tried, on numerous occasions, to crack a joke or slip a pun into the conversation, but she has yet to make anyone genuinely laugh. Her grandmother laughs just to spite her and her grandfather is too messed up in the head to understand words so he just laughs at everything. Unfortunately, Jack has never really been told she wasn't funny so she tries and fails to be comical even to this day.
    (-) Ruthless Tongue; having or showing no pity or compassion for others-- a particular language. Being unable to fluff up reality for her acquaintances/kidnappees with a few simple words is what causes her to lose allies. She just can't help it! Her mouth just falls open and forms sentences all on it's own. Jack cannot stop the waterfall of disgust and frustration that falls off her lips when someone with half a brain is dying for a little sympathy. She is just programmed to lay it down like it is. She is also known for saying horrible and crude things when she is angered, which in turn, causes her to lose friends or piss off the wrong people. Upon the ship, Jack is more adamant to cause a ruckus so she can just walk the plank and be done with it.
    (-) Wrath; a very strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility. This trait is not often shown, but when it is... Well, you better just step back and allow Jacqueline to calm herself down.
    (-) Imagination; the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses. As a child, for entertainment that couldn't be reached through tormenting the maids and butlers, Jack used her imagination for everything. She heard many stories about pirates so, of course, she pretended to be one. She would prance around the house with a stick and a handkerchief wrapped around her eye until either her mother or a frantic maid sent her to her room. She thought pirates lived so freely. As a young adult, Jack curses her younger self for believing such blasphemy. Pirates are no good filthy rats, but she cannot help aching for their life irregardless.

    Jacqueline was born September 26th in the wee hours of the night. Her mother was in labor for over two days and Jack sometimes believes this is the reason her mother isn't very kind to her. The young brown haired infant was very chubby, but after she turned one, like all babies, she thinned out and found her form child-like form. Jacqueline grew up as an only child for twelve years so it was only logical she would resort to her imagination and imaginary friends for a good time. The maids and butlers were jokes to her and her parents were so busy with their "tea parties" or "community meetings" that they didn't even notice their servants packing until the door slammed shut at about three in the morning. She grew up with little interaction from other children as well as the cold shoulder from her mother. It was almost a miracle when she would put on a real smile for her daughter and plan a trip to go shopping. Jack had always been a Daddy's girl and that may have been the reason to why she grew up so tom-boysish and rebellious. Eventually, when she was going through puberty, her mother had to put her foot down on such childish behavior and ever since Jack has learned to live two completely different lives. When Patricia was born (Jack had been twelve), Jack thought she was gaining a real-life best friend, and she did for awhile, but her mother decided she didn't want a second misbehaving child so she immediately began to teach Patricia the ways of a lady at seven years old.

    Patricia grew up very snooty and she was basically a thorn in Jack's side up until she turned eighteen. Jack would always sneak out to play in the mud when her mother was busy with friends and of course, being mother's pet, Patricia would run to their mother with a wicked grin and rat Jack out. At eighteen, Jack was given her own branch of the house to do with as she pleased. The six years of hell with her younger sister and a drooling newborn were no more! She could run around and pretend to be a pirate all she wanted. Life beyond that ran pretty smoothly. She barely interacted with her family or the outside world, instead she buried herself in books and the grand oak park that was located behind their estate. By this time in her life, Jack knew all about the truths of the world and the shell she had been building since her rebellious little girl years was beginning to harden. It didn't fully become steel until she was twenty and a man destined to be the father of her children has stolen her innocence. It was a traumatizing few months for her, but eventually she got out of bed, wiped her tears, and vowed to never let such a thing occur again. You may say that was a quick recovery, but for Jack and her knowledge of the mythical worlds that lined her walls, it was necessary. In the following four years, despite her mothers screams and shouts, Jack would accompany her father on some of his Naval trips as well as study Human Nature when she was in the comfort of her little enclave. It was a good life... Now look where she is.

    Jameson Xavier de Rauvelin


    Nickname: James, Xavier, Rauvelin
    Age: Twenty-eight (28)
    Gender: Male

    Occupation: Former Heir; Currently the Master Gunner-- responsible for ship's guns and ammunition; helps maintain accuracy and time amongst the gunners. A remarkable craftsman/blacksmith as well as one who also aids the Captain in any minor/major discrepancies among the ship.
    Affiliation: Was once an heir to the de Rauvelin's minor fortune, but after the death of his grandfather and the conspiracy that covered it up, he felt it was necessary to find a new way of life.

    Appearance Logistics
    Height: 185cm (6ft. 1in.)
    Weight: 72.6kg (160lbs.)
    Hair: Dark brown/black with a matching five o'clock shadow that adds to his pirate look
    Eyes: Sapphire

    Jameson has a very strong physique due to many years of fencing and cricket with his brothers. His physique has only become more prominent upon boarding the Dragon's Cutlass. Jameson tries his best to keep himself in shape as well as his gunmen, because you never knew how many times you would be running across the deck just for a few cannon balls. There are no stand-out blemishes or freckles upon his skin, but if you look closely, splayed across his skin like any human, there is an array of dark circular marks that his mother called "beauty marks." Unfortunately, he had less than his other five siblings and as a child he inferred that he just wasn't beautiful enough to gain more. This lead him to think it was alright to go through his mother's wardrobe and vanity as a child. What a hoot that was! Back on topic, his skin is tanned from the hot days on the deck (it's not uncommon for him to work without much clothing, his occupation requires him to get down and dirty), but his shortly kept hair has kept it's nice dark auburn/black color despite it all. His face is very defined, strong jaw, bushy eyebrows, and a slightly bent nose from all those days went fighting with his male siblings. Jameson was never one to back down from a challenge and it was quite comical to see him spring back up after every hit. His grandmother, when the boys were visiting her and Pappy for the weekend, would say that young Jameson had a very high-tolerance for pain, which would help him later on in life. In general, when he is covered in his favorite attire, it's hard to tell if Jameson is really up for a brawl, but once you get him entirely unclothed... Most of the crew know that if there is an issue on board the ship, Jameson the Mighty will rain down upon you with a fiery fist.


    Personality Traits
    (+) Curiosity; a strong desire to know or learn something. As a child, Jameson grew up around many other children that could steal the spotlight from him long enough to where he had some free time of his own. This usually led him towards his grandmother's garden, where he would build extravagant castle out of twigs and menacing bears out of leaves. He enjoyed peaking into other's peoples privacy and learning things that nobody else knew. It gave him a sense of power, even has a child. This definitely got and still gets him into trouble to this day.
    (+) Rock-Hard Demeanor; solid, firm, and resistant to pressure; not easily broken, bent, or pierced-- outward behavior or bearing. Jameson is a force to be reckoned with and most people make this assumption before getting to know him simply because of his face and general exterior attitude. If he does not know you well, then don't expect him to immediately get buddy-buddy with you! If you want to get to know him then show it and he will usually recuperate. Other than, he is known to keep cool and professional around a crowd of strangers-- usually.
    (+) Born Leader; the person who has born instincts to lead or command a group, organization, or country. Despite his tough looks and rugged behavior, Jameson knows how to act and how to accomplish a goal in the most dire times. He is always the person to keep the group on task and direct them to success. If he is not the one leading, then he's probably dead.
    (+) Charismatic; exercising a compelling charm that inspires devotion in others. Jameson isn't very good with helping people out emotionally (see Empathy trait), but he doesn't mind helping the ladies out with the issues pertaining to their tight clothing ; ). Not only can he make any woman swoon over him when the crew comes to port, he can also wiggle his way out of any situation that his gunmen stir up at the pub. Just a simple exchange of empathy, some extra gold medallions, a promise to return with politer men and Jameson has the bar-keep in the palm of his hands.
    (+) Jokester; to make jokes; talk humorously or flippantly; deceive (someone) in a playful or teasing way. Jameson loves to play pranks on his gunmen-- especially when one is purposely giving either him or the captain a tough time. At the end of the day though, no matter how gross those eggs felt in your bloomers, Jameson's jokes and pranks are all in good clean fun. If you can't handle them then he will most likely continue to torture you until you get used to it. No if's, ands, or buts.

    (-) Impatient; having or showing a tendency to be quickly irritated or provoked; restlessly eager. Jameson has this little tick in the back of his brain that begins to flash when his men are just not working up to par. If they take too long to complete instructions or orders, than Jameson can't help the obscenities that leave his mouth afterwards. He believes this materialized when his mother continued to give birth until their small mansion was overrun with infant feet. He was no longer the main event of the show and that wasn't something that was taken lightly by his younger self.
    (-) Empathy; the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. In all honesty, Jameson is a stand-up kind of guy. He is always willing to lend a hand (despite what people may say), but he can't lend any sort of advice. It's awkward for him to sit there and listen to someone complain when there are a million other things that person could do to get out of their rut. Their problems can be solved so simply! Jameson is just too nice of a guy to lay down the line. So he just sits and listens, lending a pat on the back and never speaking about the conversation again.
    (-) Fearless/Fearful; lacking fear/ feeling afraid; showing fear or anxiety. This can seem a bit controversial, but Jameson harbors both these traits and he can't change that about himself. When it comes to a fight, the adrenaline rushes through him like hot oil and it gets him worked up and ready, but when it comes to the fact that his grandfather's death may possibly be one filled with conspiracy theories and pay-offs... Jameson still believes he's at the top of the WANTED list for that one. It's agonizing to come to port with an itch-like feeling that he could be caught at any moment; that someone could recognize his de Rauvelin genes.
    (-) Cold-Shoulder; to ignore someone deliberately. Jameson is a very trusting person and when he finds out that someone betrays him... The only way he can cope is to cut all ties with that person and move on. He will not stand for any apologies nor will he forget the experience it brings forth. If the whispers of betrayed are simply rumors and Jameson believes them, that person is susceptible to getting the cold shoulder from him irregardless. If there is even a hint of distrust between Jameson and his ally, then the brunette will not hesitate to end the blossoming friendship there. He won't even look back.
    (-) Easy to Befriend; act as a friend to (someone) by offering help or support. Sometimes, Jameson is a bit too trusting though and this is what gets him into some sticky situations with friends, acquaintances, or allies. He tries his best to learn from his mistakes with these kind of deceitful people, but he's too sweet when introducing himself, which comes off as him being a pushover, which makes people think they can push him over just a bit. And then, ultimately, they succeed one way or another and Jameson curses himself.

    Jameson was born on January 4th in the middle of a light snow-storm. It was quite a stressful night for his parents, considering most babies born in that sort of temperature didn't last more than a few hours. Miraculously, Jameson survived and turned out to be a very healthy infant. Matthew-Thomas was almost five when Jameson was born, but the two hit it off as soon as the younger one was brought out of the room the next day. Matthew-Thomas always asked his mother to help with baby Jameson and of course his mother showed her eldest son all the ropes on being a big brother.

    Seven years later, Rupert was born and both Matthew-Thomas AND Jameson decided to take care of him as much as they could. Their mother began to take advantage of her son's enthusiasm though and despite being only seven and eleven, she left baby Rupert with her two older sons as much as she possibly could. From the moment he was born, Rupert was mostly watched over by the three males that inhabited the small de Rauvelin mansion. Their mother began to continuously make excuses to visit her "lady friends" or "buy a new corset for the next dinner at the Montagems" and their father had no choice but to dedicate all of his time to his three boys.

    This behavior did not stop even when Geoffrey and Margaret were born. She simply dumped the two infants into the hands of Jameson and Mathew-Thomas, saying she had errands to run, but not returning home until late in the night. Jameson heard his father say on numerous occasions that his mother may be having an affaire de coeur? It was a strange word to Jameson even at the ripe age of thirteen. His parent's marriage only worsened after Geoffrey and Margaret turned four and the resemblance between them and the rest of the siblings just didn't match up. Jameson's mother opposed all accusations of sleeping with another man, but his father was smarter than that. The two adults moved to different areas of the mansion, but they kept up the usual "happy couple" appearance beyond their home's front doors.

    After the miscarriage of Gracie, Jameson's parents began to sleep in the same bed once again. Matthew-Thomas explained that: "Mother is heart-broken. She needs father to comfort her like he used to when the snow storms rolled in..." This comfort equalled young Kelsey and then, afterwards, the adults went back to their separate spaces.
    When Jameson was twenty-four an incident with his grandparent's occurred, which forced him to run away from home and join the Dragon's Cutlass int he first place. Nobody aboard the ship knows and he's never told another soul... The secret is the main reason he doesn't drink rum until he passes out. There is too much he could reveal (this story will be revealed in the RP; I'm hoping).

    Thomas Cook




    Constant factor aboard the Dragon’s Cutlass. Especially fatherly towards the powder monkeys.



    Thom’ is always jovial and has a broad grin plastered on his face. He makes sure nobody – when it comes to food – wants for anything. Even in the face of battle, when the cooking fire is doused, Thomas can whip up a fine meal for the crew. He needs little to make a big impact.

    He does have a mean streak. It usually surfaces when antagonized, and in battle. Then Thom’ resorts to any means necessary to reach his goal. Staying alive and ending up on top, for example.

    Cook has been on the ship from the beginning. He was there when the masts were erected for the first time. He was a powder monkey himself, way back when. A lot of orphans – and deserted children – ended up like that. Thomas doesn’t know which one of those categories he fits, he only knows that his history started on this here old deck. Scrubbing it, re-scrubbing it and scrubbing it again, until his small hands were bloody.

    Thomas Cook has seen tons of battle, tons of cannon balls tossed at the ship. During one of those battles one of those projectiles bounced about in the tight confines of the cannon-deck. It missed many of his shipmates, but hit him square in his right thigh. Everything beneath his hip was smashed into smithereens. After the battle, when all leftovers were swept up, they found him: passed out and his leg beyond saving.

    Now he hobbles along on a sturdy, wooden leg. Rather piraty indeed! His right leg often aches. Especially when the weather is about to change. Okay, it isn’t there anymore, but that doesn’t mean it cannot hurt as if it has been replaced by a hundred sea urchins.

    Somewhere along the way, Thomas also lost an eye. Nobody exactly knows how it happened. It's a story of personal shame, and Thom' isn't gonna let anyone in on it. Luckily the surgeon was on hand to patch him up at the time. Well, his eye wasn't saved, and Thomas never ever used the big meat fork anymore.

    Usually weapons are stowed away during regular travel, but Cook wields a few wicked looking cooking implements. His weapon of choice – into battle as well – is a three feet meat cleaver. Other smaller knives usually find their way into his belt. After all, you never know when an opportunity to debone something arises.

    Name: Bartholomew Thompson

    Age: 25

    Gender: male

    Occupation: Captain

    Affiliation: his crew

    He is about 5' 11" and has a very large scar across his back as well as a number of smaller scars in various places, each one with a battle story behind it.

    Personality: Bartholomew Thompson is man who refuses to show weakness. To any onlooker he would seem to be your typical hot-tempered, brutal, and mean pirate captain. In truth, he is pretty hot-tempered, but the brutal part is an act. He feels a fatherly toward his crew and provides them a way to stay off the streets, since the majority of them are otherwise homeless. The way he provides may not be the best, but it's the only option they have besides the gallows. He is actually exceptionally caring and kind, and it can be seen in many of his actions; though, most overlook it since he otherwise seems very gruff. In fact, he is highly critical of himself and often worries about everything on his own, almost never confiding in others.

    History: Bart grew up as the middle child of the upperclass Thompson Household, but his parents payed little attention to him, instead focusing on his older brother who would inherit the fortune. This led him to spend the majority of his time with his younger sister Arabella. The two were inseparable for many years, but alas, Arabella was a sickly child who didn't live past age 16. He joined the navy trying to distract himself from his loss. He also hoped to make a name for himself, but before long he was discharged and left with nowhere to go. No one would bother trying to help him get back up on his feet. His brother especially made a point of refusing to help. He decided it was time to take matters into his own hands, so he gathered a crew, stole a ship, and soon became one of the most feared pirate captains of the time.

    More: He has a cutlass on his left side and a pistol on his right as well as several daggers hidden on his person. He never goes anywhere without his weapons.

    Name: Ava Williams

    Age: 20

    Gender: female

    Occupation: Heiress

    Affiliation: The Williams family

    She is about 5' 3" tall and thin with very little muscle.

    Personality: To the casual eye she is steady and calm, always keeping her wits about her in every situation. She's gentle and caring always willing to help others out, but often the pressure of trying to always seem so put together gets to her and she has to withdraw and read before she snaps. When she loses it, no one wants to be around her. Her mood swings from depressed to angry and back again like a pendulum. Those who accidentally get caught by the storm often don't look at her the same afterward.

    History: She's the oldest child of the Williams family and as such she was always taught to be a steady woman who never shows her emotions. She needed to be someone her siblings could look up to, but the pressure her parents placed on her would often prove to be too much, so she began stealing her father's books and getting her brothers to teach her to read. Ladies weren't taught such things usually, but her brothers were still too young to assert their superiority as many men do. Soon she didn't need her brothers' help any longer and would read in secret to escape her reality. Eventually she was kidnapped by pirates.

  5. @ F L Y I have to depart from Iwaku for a while, so if you'd like to keep this going please do so!
  6. @Alexa Ray Of course! I will just ask people to send me their PMs if they plan to enter.
  7. This RP is still going on, but I believe Alexa has deleted her account...
  8. So, does it mean you gonna start this up? Are the others still interested?
  9. @Gorgoniy I'm unsure honestly. Alexa had two characters for this and she sent me their pictures, but I don't believe they were finished. We don't have too many players in this role-play now.

    @Dragonlovinggal Are you still interested? Maybe I could just bring up the interest check again and see if there are others willing to join.
  10. Let's wait to see whether more interests appear. I could take the lead in this. Did some GM-ing ages ago. Not something I was aspiring right now, but I could.
  11. I'm definitely still interested, but we definitely need a few more people to join.
  12. Yeah! ^^^

    I'll go make an advertisement or something LOL.
