Anishin Barnaby WaulGENERAL INFORMATIONAnishin Barnaby Waul by ~Ruite
Full Name: Anishin Barnaby Waul
Alias/Nickname: His preferred alias is Barnes, as his first name is somewhat personal and carries a social stigma. Loved ones often refer to him as Nishka, but his nicknames at the Acropolis are more stereotypical: Nitro, Frosty, etc.
Place of birth: Moscow, Russia. His upbringing was a mixture of Russian and English, with no real focus. Sort of like agnosticism, but with cultural upbringing.

Full Name: Claret Carmine
Alias: Red Queen, Mistress/Lady Red, Lady Luck
Age: Early to mid-thirties.
District of Birth: Outside the districts.
Current Residence: Rosecrest
Relationship Status: Widowed
Sexual Orientation: Undisclosed
Figure/build: Tall and shapely, with an hourglass figure.
Notable Features: Strikingly tall, with vibrant red hair. She’s quite hard to miss.
Hair color: Red
Hair Style: Long, thick, and voluminous. Claret takes great pride in her hair, as her husband often complimented her on it. It has since become a trademark. The style varies by occasion, but in private, she prefers to wear it down.
Eye color: Poison green.
Skin color: Lightly tanned, with an old dusting of freckles on her face.
Preferred style of clothing: In public, her dress is intricate and bold, favoring the masculine from military dress to tailored suits and integrating the extreme feminine—lingerie and corsets—to accentuate that she is, in fact, very much a woman in power.
Accessories: A thigh holster and Bordeaux’s pocket watch, which she occasionally refers to as ‘his heartbeat’. She enjoys making advisors nervous, and occasionally totes a whip or a riding crop.
Passive / Aggressive : Unpredictable. She usually gives off an aggressive feel, even when she isn't being outwardly hostile. Her presence is notably unsettling, in both 'business mode' and 'leisure mode'. Something about her is always slightly off-center.
Fighting skills/techniques: Efficient and calm under pressure, the Queen may not start fights, but she'll finish them. Violently, and with flair.
Weapon of choice: Her remaining Carmine family firearm, a sword, or a concealed knife.
Weaknesses in combat: While training and determination afford her strength, she is still a woman, and becomes fatigued faster than men with the same rigorous training. She also has a few triggers to do with her broken family unit.
Strengths in combat: Experienced, calm, and quick-thinking. The Queen is frightfully well-prepared for a worst-case scenario.
Any medication regularly taken: None.
Mental health status: Stable.
Suspected neurosis: Undisclosed. ("Ruddy mad bitch" is still not a recognized ailment.)
Personality: During business, the don is firm and confident, with an unnerving spark in her eye. She knows people, and she knows how to take them apart with a smile and a few 'pleasant' words. Not much else is known about her.
In private and unchallenged, she has the capacity to be a loving and lighthearted woman, despite past experiences. She deeply values the close relationships left to her, and delights in teasing people.
Quote that Fits: "Bow to me, bow to me, at my feet you'll bow to me…" – King of the World, Porcelain and the Tramps.
Pretty much all of "Sound of Madness" by Shinedown. Anything ever touched by Porcelain Black.

Dislikes: False pretense, long speeches, condescension, chauvinist twits…twits in general, really.
Fears/phobias: Failure, weakness, falling, lightning.
Hobbies: Cards, writing, gardening, reading, target practice.
Potential Battle Cry: "Business is business, after all."
Significant/special belongings: Her wedding ring, gun, and a ratty stuffed lion.
Talents/skills: Speaking, negotiating, fencing, marksmanship. Also, evaluation and intuition. Capable of operating on very little sleep.
History: Her lineage is little known, a particularly well-kept secret. Claret grew up aiding in the family business—the care and keeping of a high class winery. Her parents grew into the rather unfortunate habit of offing less community-tied members of the public and making a special vintage with their ichor.
At a young age, Hardys Riesling, heir to the Riesling family, visited the vineyards with her father and very nearly snooped her way into becoming the next special vintage. Claret was quick to lead her away, and the two became fast friends.
Years later, Hardys became engaged to Bordeaux Carmine, the successor of the Carmine family, and insisted that he make a trip to the winery to secure a ‘proper red’ for their engagement party.
During his visit, Claret’s parents very nearly bled him as well, and Claret decided that they had gone just a bit too far with this unsavory business and ended the matter promptly. With an axe.
He brought her along to the engagement party, and the results were about as savory as may be expected.
Their marriage, which followed swiftly, caused a great deal of gossip and no small amount of enmity. Their relationship was a bright and loving one, blessed early with the birth of baby Grenadine. Soon after, however, Bordeaux was murdered. It was believed that, in taking down the head, his unknown widow would be easy to control or cut out.
They were tragically wrong.
Their error was even greater in taking her precious boy away.
