I'm looking for someone to play a male character to go along with the following plot: Hester Tate's story was like that of a fairy tale. At least at first. She was the daughter of blacksmith, the eldest of five and but a mere sixteen years old when she met the noble/lord/duke/etc ______ (your character) in a marketplace by chance. As if fate had brought them together, the two had fallen in love. She of humble background was to be married to someone she would never have dreamed of meeting. They were perfect for each other, they got along great and when they talked it felt as if they had known each other their whole lives instead of just a few years. She was eighteen on the day of their wedding. The ceremony was small, taking place in the garden of ________ 's grand home. Just as they were about to say "I do", the canon's could be heard in the distance and shots rang out in the courtyard. Fate had other plans for the couple that day for the infamous ship, The Maiden's Shadow, could be seen on the horizon. Pirates pillaged the coastal Caribbean town that Hester had called home her whole life. The port city was on fire, being destroyed by invading pirates. It didn't take them long to reach the place of the wedding, and despite the soldiers and militia, no one could hold the pirates off. Hester tried to reach for her husband-to-be but before she could, she was yanked away. Her dress ripped as she tried to fight back and one of her shoes fell off. She managed to knock down one man with a well-placed punch but another man charged her with a knife. She tried to dodge, but not before the knife got her in the eye. Howling in pain as blood welled up in her right eye, she fell to the ground and with her one good eye, could see the horrified face of _________ as she was carried off, bloody and beaten. ________ swore on that day that he would go after the Maiden's Shadow and find his fiance. But alas, the Maiden's Shadow is one of the fastest ships on the sea and not all is what it seems. Before long, five years had passed before _______ spotted the legendary ship once more. He didn't know where his bride-to-be was. Maybe she was still on the ship as a hostage, prisoner, or slave. Or perhaps they had sold her to a whore house by now. Maybe... Maybe she was already dead. Either way, _______ would find out. But wait, who's this young captain? And why does she seem so familiar? My character: Name: Hester Tate Age: 23 Biography: A blacksmith's daughter who fell in love with a noble/duke/lord/whatever, her life was what one can only determine as perfect. At least until she was taken away. The pirates on the Maiden's Shadow was well-known for kidnapping villagers of the town's the pillaged, though no one knows what happens to them. She lost her right eye during the invasion on her home and was taken from the man she had come to love and held as a prisoner on the ship. At first, the captain was going to hold her for ransom and return her when their needs were met and kill her if they weren't met, but upon finding out that she was a blacksmith's daughter, Hester became more valuable to the crew than any amount of money. A woman who could forge weapons and repair guns and canons and refine knives and swords was incredibly valuable on the ship, so against her will, she was kept alive in exchange for her services. As time passed, she came to consider her fellow crew like a family to her. They drank together, fought together, and sailed the seas together, how could they not become like a second family? On the Maiden's Shadow, she was seen as an equal, treated with respect. The day came, four years later, when the captain decided it was time for him to step down from his position and retire. His choice as to who should take over was clear, and the crew celebrated their new captain, Hester Tate. Captain Tate has been living up to the pirate traditions since, her old life far behind her. Or so she thought. Personality: Hester didn't gain respect on the ship for being gentle. As she came to fear the people around her less, she also became less afraid to tell them off, yell at them for messing up, or ordering them around. She always had a bit of a bossy personality, even before she was taken from her home. And with no social pretenses to keep up, Hester showed her rude and crude side. She could take any man or woman in a drinking contest, and became a bit frivolous when it came to who lied in her bed when they docked into port. She almost always wears pants and never goes anywhere without a flintlock pistol and a sword. Her skill with a sword grew and her fingers calloused as she made and repaired weapons. She's elusive when it comes to getting away from bounty hunters and naval fleets, as well as evasive when it comes about talking about her personal life. She's be lying if she said she didn't miss her family or didn't think about where she'd be now if this all hadn't happened. But one look in the mirror and the black patch that covers her right eye and the scar peeking out from under it, and she's reminded as to why she is where she is now and the fact that that life is behind her. Hester can seem merciless when it comes to fighting and killing, but oddly compassionate at surprising times, sometimes unexpectedly taking mercy on people. She has a short fuse and explosive temper, and when put on the spot, she knows exactly what to say to make someone snap. Danger thrills her, and she can often get in over her head when she wants something, but she loves a challenge. Appearance: Sooo yeah! That's the story I've come up with so far and there's my character. The story is up for change and adjustments if there's anything you want to elaborate on, change, or fix. I have no qualms with changing my story around a little to make the roleplay more enjoyable. There are a few things I've been undecided about as of yet, such as whether or not we would add a supernatural element to the roleplay (like how Pirates of the Caribbean has mermaids, Davy Jones, skeleton people, and curses) and that we would need to discuss, and whether we want for one of the arcs to be treasure hunting or not. If you want to know more about me, then you can access my RP Resume on my profile. Just know, that this is one of the more elaborate stories I've created. I'd like for it to be long-term because I have a lot of ideas in mind as to how it could go and I'd like for whoever is interested to write at least a paragraph per post.
