I am currently working on Lorelei's (my character) profile. I need a name for her employer (or whatever we are going to call it). My basic thought is that this man first encounters Lorelei when she robs him at the age of 15. He catches her and she is arrested, but he is so impressed by her and intrigued that goes to the prison and speaks to her and tells her he will have her life spared if she comes to work for him, which she does. Since then she has been working as his agent of sorts, doing all of his dirty work for him. I'm kinda picturing this guy as being a nobleman.

Also, I was thinking that the year this board should start is 1633. Lorelei will be 23.

sounds great K!

As for a a name Severin Royer is the nobleman. He owns a plantation outside of town. He is not kind to his workers and often avails himself of the women when he chooses to. As far as she was concerned, Loreliei did try to burglarize his home but there were many guards and she was shot by a crossbow.  Witnessing her abilities Severin visited her in the hospital and paid for her to be release. Telling her that he paid 3 times more than he actually did he convinced Lorelei that she belongs to him and thus hired her to commit crimes against his rivals and enemies. He also has on occasion abused her sexually as he has no wife and little family and is lonely and disgruntled and has taken it out on her occasionally. However he gives her lots of space, a room to train in, equipment, and the means to masquerade as a noble herself when the she chooses to. Sometimes he gives her gifts, jewelry, horses, fine dresses and steel.

Here is Lorelei's profile. Let me know what you think. Also, I'm thinking that Lorelei will actually go to bed with Severin willingly...although she didn't at first. She doesn't like it...in fact she hates it, but every time she does a new piece of jewelry shows up on her pillow.

Real Name: Lorelei Baudelaire

Alias': Adelynn
          Angelique
          Colette
          Mireille
          Jeanne
          Anne-Marie
          Delphine
          Elise
          Genevieve
          Isabelle
          Marie-Rose
          Arielle
          Camille
          Madeline
          Simone

Born: 1610 in the Foreign Quarter to the popular prostitute Violet Dubois-Father unknown

Age: 23

Nationality: French

Weapons: Lorelei owns several daggers, which she keeps concealed on her body at all times, but is also skilled with muskets and swords and is knowledgeable with poisons. She is also highly skilled in hand to hand combat, much to the surprise of many of the men she has encountered.

Appearance: With her long, dark, wavy locks, and bright green eyes, Lorelei is strikingly beautiful. She has naturally red lips and rosy cheeks, which are highlighted by her ivory colored skin. She bears several scars, but hides them beneath her clothing. Lorelei takes pride in her appearance and enjoys fine things, whether she buys them herself with money she's stolen, or simply steals the items themselves.

Personality: Lorelei is the perfect combination of beauty and danger. She learned to fend for herself from a very young age and does whatever she has to in order to stay alive. She is cunning, ruthless, and extremely deadly. She shows no obvious remorse for the wicked deeds she has committed. She can easily gain someone's trust, and then use that trust against them.

Background: Lorelei was born on the floor of a dirty backroom in the Foreign Quarter to the popular prostitute Violet Dubois. Lorelei was unloved by her mother and was barely kept alive by her. Lorelei's earliest memory is of watching her mother service a young noble in a back alley while on her knees. She told herself then that she would never become a prostitute like her mother. At the age of six she was thrown out and left to fend for herself. To keep from dying on the streets she learned very quickly how to take care of herself. She learned to steal and lie and use charm to get what she wanted.

At the age of 12 she was raped by a man when she refused to prostitute herself for him. She fought against him the entire time and he nearly strangled her to death. Afterwards he threw several coins at her, which caused her to snap. She jumped up and grabbed his dagger and stabbed him in the chest. She robbed him and took his dagger and fled before the body was found. Three years later she came across the home of the wealthy noble Severin Royer. Thinking highly of her skills as a thief she managed to break into his house in the middle of the night undetected and proceeded to fill a bag with anything silver she could get her hands on. However, she didn't realize that Severin had awoken and as she tried to flee his guards shot her in the back with a crossbow. Her heart was just barely missed and she was taken to a hospital. As she was recovering Severin came to visit her and told her that he had arranged for her release and lied to her by telling her he had paid three times what he actually had. In exchange for his kind deed she was his. From that day forward she became his agent, performing duties ranging from spying to assassination. Her incredible beauty put her in the bed of many important men, whom she would gather information from and give to her master. As a reward for her good work, and her company on occasion in his bed, she has been given her own rooms in his home, fine wine and food, jewelry and clothing, and one of the best horses in France.

Thank you. I forgot to add this to her profile but the reason her last name is different from her mother's is because after her mother threw her out she changed it so she wouldn't be associated with her anymore

I started a new thread. What I think will happen is that he will win the hand and Lorelei who has been watching the game sees ofcourse that Armond has won quite alot of coin. However Rochelle, a woman who caught his eye earlier that night he fully intends to bed tonight, she will either have to come onto him with hopes to 'join them' or do something to Rochelle to get her out of the way.

After...when he finally wakes up, he will notice his won coin gone and Rochelle still in the bed and Lorelei is gone (or whatever alias she used for the evening) and his bed empty and money gone realizing that he felt something when he first saw her and didn't follow his gut.

Also, I cant get over that photo you found for the header. its probably one of the best headers I've seen in a long time. I have high hopes for your idea here. I'm pretty excited about it. Wink Thank you again for being honest instead of just going with it and just 'foning' in your replies because you are afraid of offending your writing partner. I much prefer the 'enthusiastic Kristin' and her writing. Very Happy

So, you don't want Lorelei to actually sleep with him? Or should they maybe run into each other again later? Also, Armond would technically be the 5th Musketeer...the book and movies are titled "The Three Musketeers" meaning Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, but then d'Artagnan joins them and he makes 4..unless you don't want to have d'Artagnan in the group, but I will leave that up to you.

lol thank you! I like it too. It's actually an image from the BBC show "The Musketeers", which has only 3 seasons, but if you are needing something fun to watch I highly recommend it. I've been re-watching season 1 recently, which is where I got the yearning to do something like this. Also, why should Lorelei be there? I'm assuming she's there for a reason. Any ideas?

Hmm, I will fix that. No, I do want her to sleep with him. This is France, 3 in a bed is not unheard of but if you can find a reasonable way to get Rochelle out of the picrure than that works to.

Yeah, I think Lorelei would much prefer to have him alone. She doesn't like to share her men lol

Certainly, when do i 'not' have any ideas? Lorelei has been hired to kill the owners wife by a disgruntled employee who was summarily terminated. I.E. kicked out and embarrassed by her.

Lorelei could manage to have another man buy her a drink and put something in it to make her feel ill or knock her out as she goes to the privy. Easy peasy. She will be diverted form her goal (she could come back another night to do it) when she sees Armond. After she beds him she might decide to kill him because she knows he has apprehended and defeated more than one of her former comrades. however she sees him sleeping and decides he's to pretty to kill right then. That and he bedded her very well maybe. Rolling Eyes

That sounds good to me. You and I were thinking along the same lines in terms of Rochelle. I was thinking she would slip her something that knocks her out. I am thinking that Lorelei will go through with her job of killing the owner's wife. She will simply slip out of bed after Armond passes out and kill her and then leave.

Also, is his name 'Armond' or 'Armand'?

Ok, this is where you could bring out Lorelie's cold hearted visciousness. I say kill Rochelle and toss her corpse down into the privy leavings. Disgusting but very cold-hearted. Most privies were little mroe than outhouses inside with a pit that was emptied from time to time by wheel barrel. usually you could lift up the seats and there would be large holes the seat sat on. Big enough to toss a body into.

Just a disclaimer, I'm not suggesting I'm into...that (though I've tried it), I thought that maybe frenchmen, experienced ones often go for the uncommon if they can though I've never been there. I may have a 'French' last name but my family is not from there, they were "French' Canadian Indian, like Native Canadian Indians. I wanted their first time to be kinda crazy so she'd remember it later in the posting as she goes on about her business. I assume for a time she will be apart from him and we can shift to her benefactor and her own business. If you were offended, I'm sorry in advance!

lol no it was fine. I agree that their first time should have been very memorable for them both. I can see Armand pining for her for quite a while after this

Oh my, I dont know whats gotten into me, Im so warped! Yet its so fun to write this stuff. I'm broken, yep, thats what this is. Evil or Very Mad However I did want her life to be terrible so that the readers (us) would feel more for her and even be on her side when she does needless murder and such.
