Dresden Files - London
|Name: Jekyll Sylvester|
|High Concept: Half-Ogre Barkeep|
|Trouble: Massive Debt
The pub is not doing very well, and keeping it afloat has meant too many loans and lines of credit from too many sources. These days, Jekyll has trouble just paying the interest on all his debts.
|Background: Never Fit In
Quite some time ago, Jekyll Sylvester was born in Ireland, discarded by his mother or father as an infant and spent his childhood being shuffled about in orphanages and foster care. He was never aware of his true lineage, being half-ogre, but he had always known that he didn’t fit in with the rest of the children and that others seemed to sense his differences as well, though no one seemed to be able to put a finger on what the exact problem was. At times, this made him act out as a troublemaker and at other times, he was bullied. He never quite knew where he stood, but finally found himself alone on the streets and working at pubs, doing menial labor and keeping his head down.
|Rising Conflict: Inherited From Barret
Jekyll made his way into England as his trade skills grew. He’d had no real education except for what he learned on the job, and over the years he’d learned quite a bit about what it took to run a pub. He landed in London and took up a position tending bar at INSERT NAME HERE, a pub run by another half-ogre, an old German man called Barret. Though he was unaware of Barret’s fae origins at first, eventually Barret took him under his wing and taught Jekyll of his origins as well as everything he knew of the bartending business. Satisfied that Jekyll could handle his own, and wanting a break from running his business into the ground, Barret retired and left the pub to Jekyll, debts and all. Barret still lives nearby, and is the father that Jekyll never had.
