…to the Right Honourable Lady Honoria Moronoe Louise Whiteberry-Clapham?
Honoria, aged 20, called “Moronoe” by her family and sometimes simply “moron” by her next brother, one year older Patrick C. Timothy, is my Steampunk LARP character. She is the daughter of Duke Tamworth Peredur A. (aka. “Perry” with his friends and wife) Whiteberry-Clapham and his wife Katherine E.M., née O’Shaugnessy, born in Eden/ Cumbria/ United Kingdom and sister to afore-mentioned Patrick “Pat” C. Timothy (older, 1 year), Henry “Perce” Percival Islay (older, 4 years), William “Liam” G.M. (younger, 4 years), Victoria “Lottie” C. Sian who is already married as an Etheridge-Humberville (older, 3 years) and the pet of the family, Georgina L. Gowan (younger, 9 years). Is it very apparent that I love names?
Back to the person this should be about (not that her siblings and parents didn’t all have background stories of their own). Honoria is not completely useless although she is of noble heritage. At the moment she is a student of the history of arts and long-gone cultures, specialised on her “own” islands of the Kingdom. She also takes a great interest in languages although her French is très horrible and literature as another field of her studies.
Her weakest points are presumably her love for good food and dancing and the fact that she can easily be distracted from most things by rather unimportant stuff. Oh, and she flies off the handle quiet easily, something that she mostly inherited from her mother’s Irish family although her father might have had his part in this, too. Her other remarkable characteristics may be her curiosity, some kind of patriotism and loyalty, love for a good adventure (that’s why she agrees on every archeological excavation that crosses her way, no matter where) and souvenirs and the mind of a crestfallen romantic.
I’m still working on the Whiteberry-Clapham (x O’Shaughnessy) coat of arms as I’m not too firm with English, Scottish, Irish and Welsh heraldry yet but in case of doubt (that will hopefully not appear) Steampunk doesn’t have to be fully historically correct.
