Douglas Booth

N/A

Twenties

1771-Feb-22

Current Age:
250 years old

Assumed Pronouns:
He | Him

Occupation:

Pretends to be a bored heir from England and doesn't need to work. Still, he secretly creates poisons and other dubious potions for those with darker intents.

Appearance

Eye Colour:
Hazel

Height:
6'0

Hair Colour:
Brown, short

Build:
Average

General Dressing Style:
Given the colder climate that they live in for what feels like the majority of the year, Avery’s not opposed to layering or simply bundling up with a thick hoodie or jacket over a tee. The warmer weather will see him in slightly less but it all comes down to the situation and what sort of clothing it calls for. He is, however, a bit on the flamboyant side with colours and patterns, preferring to accessorize with a necklace and a few rings—especially his large ring that is actually the charm to help keep his negative energy from affecting those around him.

General Description:
It is easy to call Avery a pretty boy thanks to his smooth skin and youthful complexion. Thick eyelashes and full lips don’t help with this idea either and those that learn his true age are always shocked he's remained so youthful. Sometimes he tries to grow a beard to lose the baby face but he sadly can’t reach a full beard but just a distinguished amount of stubble.

Avery is of slender yet muscular frame that comes from decades of exercise and fighting (not something he seeks out but it's a fact of life at times).

Douglas Booth

Personality

Likes:
Trashy books: Sometimes before bed or just in a quiet moment away from it all, Avery likes to read those cheap and usually trashy paperback novels as he finds them highly entertaining.

Bad movies: He takes great enjoyment in watching movies that are 'so bad they're good' and either simply having a good laugh or ripping on them.

Fine Alcohol: He considers himself a connoisseur of not only wine but liquor as well. He enjoys sipping his drinks to savour them.

Toxicology: The subtle ways a poison can be hidden or broken down and the way something harmless reacts when put with something it shouldn’t go near is all useful information in his opinion.

Strengths:
Cunning: He likes to put himself in someone else’s shoes so he can find the best way to outwit them. He can be rather sneaky in the way he implements his well-thought out plans.

Strategist: Avery is good at coming up with multiple plans for the same idea, plotting out what will work best but also trying to figure out what the opposition might think.

Passionate: Whether it’s something he enjoys doing, something he wants, or even as a lover, Avery does everything full tilt and thoroughly enjoys it.

Dislikes:
Blandness: Fashion, personality, food… don’t be boring!

Werewolves: Their uncanny ability to sniff out lies is quite bothersome. Avery has learned to push his version of the truth in creative ways when around them but he usually just tries to avoid them.

Flaws:
Conceited: He knows he’s good at everything, so why down play it?

Ambitious: While usually considered a strength of character, Avery’s ambition can prompt him to go a bit above and beyond what is an acceptable means of grasping at what he wants.

Suspicious: While not to the level of paranoia, Avery is suspicious of most people and their motives. He might seem like he trusts you, but he really doesn’t. Everyone has their own game they’re playing and pawns that are being used and he wonders how you’re trying to use him.

Habits, Mannerisms & Quirks:

General Personality:
Avery gives off a languid vibe of a socialite that has no ambition or direction in life except to party and enjoy what he has. While he can and does enjoy his life and enjoys a good party, the flighty playboy persona is mostly a façade. Avery is extremely ambitious and will do anything to get what he desires, including sabotage or removing an obstacle one way or another.

He has an appetite for the ladies and borders on being a love ‘em and leave ‘em type of guy where he makes sure there’s no strings and no one gets attached. He'll keep a lover around until he either grows bored or their usefulness comes to an end. At which time, they can hope for a peaceful parting of ways though some do seem to disappear at times. Sometimes a dark mage simply needs to restock certain ingredients.

He’s rather intelligent in regards to politics and enjoys the games the supernatural communities play amongst themselves with public and secret alliances. He pays close attention to it all, learning what he can so he can make his own alliances; not that he’d trust anyone enough to expose his back or unattended glass of wine to.

Overall, he's just looking to enjoy himself and live forever. Not too much to ask for.

History

Family:
Deceased.

Relationships:
Currently nothing of note.

Secrets:
Avery's original name is John Woods. He changed it about fifty years ago but only a vampire friend here or there would know it, though they have been encouraged to forget it.

He wears a charmed ring to help keep his negative energy from affecting those around him. Every year he gets a cloaking spell reapplied to it to mask the charm so no one can go nosing around and see that his ring is magic and he might be hiding something since he doesn't go around announcing he's a dark mage.

Known:
Avery still carries his British accent and he never tries to hide it. In fact, it's part of the story he tells everyone: he's the son of a wealthy British couple that tragically died several years ago and he's relocated to get away from the painful memories and start a life of his own, living off of his inheritance.

Skills:
Dark magic, especially strong in manipulating people around him for his own gain. Also talented with poisons.

Important History:
Avery was the second son to a wealthy nobleman and his wife and all seemed to be well until around the age of seven when he started noticing that people often seemed to get angry when around him. Family dinners often ended in his parents arguing and the staff never seemed to want to spend much time near him. When he was eleven, a wandering merchant crossed paths with him as he wandered through the small town and that was when he was told how special he was.

Avery spent the next four years secretly meeting with the merchant that was actually a dark mage simply trying to blend in and make his way to new grounds. He explained why people didn't like being near them and that there were ways to keep that from happening but it cost money and some sacrifices. Avery had no problem stealing from his parents to help keep his instructor fed and housed at an inn so long as lessons continued, and boy did they. Poisons, spells, rituals... Avery soaked it all up and was always eager to learn more.

Finally feeling bold and confident in his skills, Avery asked again about the method to help control the negative emotions others felt when he was near, knowing that was the one thing his teacher kept holding back on, stating he was never ready. When it was revealed that the only thing to combat such negativity was positivity, like love, and an object of importance needed to be soaked in the blood of those he cared about during a ritual, Avery knew it was more than just simple blood-letting but murder that was required. Given the taste of power he had already had and knowing he could live a long time and be more than just a nobleman of some town, Avery said he was ready.

Several nights later when servants had been dismissed and the family gathered for pre-bed drinks, Avery applied one of the basic poisons he had learned to the drinks of his parents and brother. Oddly, he had no issue performing the task, but he couldn't watch it happen and went to his room to begin packing. Later, he collected the required amount of blood from each member and took his father's ring to be the item the charm would be applied to. Before the ritual was to begin, Avery demanded to know the steps before hand to ensure he did everything correct. His mentor was far too trusting for such an old man and once he verified what Avery had secretly read in a journal the day before, he soon found himself hit with an energy bolt and stabbed before he could retaliate. What the man never realised was that he was more important, even more loved, by Avery than his parents were. Now with the blood of four people he cared about, Avery finished the ritual to create the ring that would help him control his energy and blend in like normal.

By the time he was fifty, Avery had taken what he had learned firsthand from his mentor and what he had found in his research to begin working on his own formula. The basis was all there but none had found what he wanted for extending his life. Cycling his own magic and the chaos he could create around him would only last for so long before it broke down like that of arcane and elemental mages.

Deciding it was time for a change of scenery, Avery finally made the move to North America in the 1970s. He mostly stayed out of trouble, doing his usual routine of seducing the rich or simply infiltrating into their lives and waltzing out a whole lot richer, though a few times he grew bored of it and simple murder worked quicker. Overall, his stint in America left little impact on Avery and he finally moved a bit further north.

He celebrated the new millennium in Canada and found the young country to be quaint and rather adorable with how polite it actually was. Why he hadn't bothered to visit sooner was beyond him since there would be a lot of easy marks to take advantage of while enjoying the scenery.

Five years ago he made his way to Greenrbooke where he decided to settle down for a bit since some familiar names of his past called the city home and he was looking for some more fun.
