(I took the liberty of filling out a character sheet anyway, just in case it made it a little harder to say no ;)) Btw, I tried to include every previously accepted character into her backstory as I could.

edit: I don't know how I missed the fact that there was already a "working person" character. My bad! Room for one more though?









⥈ Name:



Cordelia (Delia) Louise Fleetwood.

View attachment 832991

Sometimes referred to as “Dee”, but more often she prefers Delia. When working or dealing with strangers, she often uses the Alias "JonBenét Braithwaite". She didn’t even have a name until she was almost seven years old when her schoolteacher bestowed her with one after she remained silent at roll call. Her more oft-used name obviously came a lot later at the recommendation of her madam, Theodora Blackwood (if that’s okay!!!)




⥈ Age:
20, though she’s not exactly “fresh faced” due to the hardships she’s endured and the drugs she’s abused. She appears to be closer to 25.


⥈ Height: 5’1


⥈ Description: A petite young woman with a hard heart and weathered eyes. As far as Delia is concerned, she’s seen the worst there is in people. Little does she know that just outside the outskirts of town lies a threat entirely inhuman.

⥈ Profession: Whore, Floozie, Working Girl, Prostitute, Lady of the Night….ya get the drift.

⥈ Business: Though she has no business of her own, Delia does well enough to earn her residence in the town of Coldwater. She spends most evenings drifting between the cat and the coin in a haze of relief-inducing toxins smuggled from all sources. She’s not ashamed of who she is or what she does for a living. Hell, working at The Chaste Cat is a dream compared to her previous life. Still, she seeks relief in anything that will take away the pain. Rather than having a place of her own, Delia boards in a room reserved at The Gold Coin by the month. Oftentimes she finds herself having to ask the bar’s owner, Angela, to cut her a deal on rent in exchange for cleaning and even occasionally serving drinks. This is due to her penchant for taking her salary up her nose before each month ends. Resourceful to the bitter end, Delia often tries to cover her rent by placing bets between serving customers and even joining in for a game of dominoes now and again when the nights are slow. Sometimes nights were not so lucky, though, as she learned once when she played Andrew Gurley in a round that ultimately lost her all of her liquor money. She eventually recovered the cash by working more nights through the week, which brought trouble in its own right. As her habits may suggest, she is not a fan of law enforcement. She does her best not to make a fuss and just just to steer clear of the Sheriff altogether as getting thrown in jail would mean losing a whole night's wages.

⥈ What brought you to Coldwater?: Delia arrived in Coldwater at the age of eighteen after escaping the hold of a forced labor mill in the neighboring state. She spent day and night processing materials mined from all throughout the West. Mistreatment from her captors led her to a boiling point. She finally retaliated, lashing out at the bastards who imprisoned her and finally escaping, but not without blood on her hands. What no one knows (and to be fair, no one asks) is that she murdered her captors, who happen to be among the owners of many of the most fruitful mines yet discovered in this great county. That was two years ago. Six bodies were buried on that day and law enforcement still hasn’t caught the criminal who slaughtered a handful of the richest people in the nation. If she ever were caught, she’d surely be sentenced to hang.

View attachment 832993

⥈ Who came with you?: No one, but she did befriend a stray cat a few weeks after getting into town that she now keeps in her room named Jasper.

View attachment 832994

⥈ What's your big secret?: While she guards the knowledge of her crimes close to her heart, there is something that even Delia doesn’t know about herself. You see, the small town of Mississippi that Zebadiah and his squad burned to the ground, making her parents and everyone she’d ever known nothing more than casualties of a brutal war. The only reason that Cordelia and a handful of other children from the town were spared is because they had been hiding under their desks in the schoolhouse that stood between several towns, out of shooting range from the massacre.​
Approved! You'll want to talk to Wolfiee Wolfiee as she runs the Brothel in town.

Pyrrha Nikos Lives On


⥈ Name: Delilah Abernathy
⥈ Age: 26
⥈ Height: 5'9"
⥈ Description: Delilah, better known as Lila, is a lovely young woman with strikingly beautiful features. She has high cheekbones, lush lips, a perfectly sculpted jawline, and a pointed chin. Her skin is fair and smooth and complements the naturally rosy coloring of her lips. She has long ebony hair that has a natural gentle wave but can easily be straightened. Her eyes are almond-shaped sky blue eyes with long dark eyelashes. Her build is slim but she is rather busty as well as has long and very nice legs. She is very fit and clearly takes good care of herself.

⥈ Profession: Frontierswoman (farmer/rancher)

⥈ Business: Runs her own farm known as Pinecrest Farm on the outskirts of town and is known to give fair pay to those who give a hard day's work in the field as well as raises good working animals such as cattle and horses.

⥈ What brought you to Coldwater?: She came looking for a fresh start after the loss of her husband and children. She lost one child during labor, another to illness, and her husband was murdered by a bunch of thugs who ransacked their home back east. After that Delilah headed west in the hopes that the shadow of death that hung over her life wouldn't dare follow her into this new world. She came across an old couple who started Pinecrest Farm and helped them restore the farm and the crops. The couple eventually passed away from old age and left the property and everything on it to Delilah.

⥈ Who came with you?: Delilah came alone.

⥈ What's your big secret?: Her husband was a former soldier and one of the best sharpshooters. He taught Delilah how to shoot and she became an even better shot than him. She doesn't flaunt her skills but she does keep them sharp and would defend her homestead to the best of her ability. Give this gal a rifle and a perch and you bet your butter biscuits that she will have you covered.



⥈ Name: Jericho Black
⥈ Age: 31
⥈ Height: 6'4"
⥈ Description: Jericho is a beast of a man who tends to tower over others. He is very muscular and has many scars from his time as a soldier as well as his job and life in general. He has a thick beard and long dark hair. His eyes are a warm chocolate brown with golden flecks and above one of them, through his eyebrow, is a very prominent scar. His hands are large and calloused from longs days working hard in his forge.

⥈ Profession: Town Blacksmith

⥈ Business: The town smith shop is called Mountain Forge and is a shop in town with a forge that wraps around the side and back of the shop. Inside the is where folks can buy anything from tools for mining, construction, and farming to horseshoes and weapons. Jericho will make custom orders of course and also does repairs.

⥈ What brought you to Coldwater?: Tired of the crowds and rush of the East Jericho decided to pack up his belongings and bring his talents out west. Here he feels a man has room to breathe and grow in relative peace. He finds life to be far more satisfying in a place where everyone tends to know everyone.

⥈ Who came with you?: Jericho came alone but picked up an abandoned pup along the way and named him Barron.



⥈ What's your big secret?: During his time after his role as a soldier ended Jericho became a bounty hunter for the military who brought back deserters dead or alive. He captured and sometimes killed many men who were already afraid for their lives because he believed he was doing the honorable thing. One man he hunted ended up being a father who was forced to flee because his commander was paid to get him killed so the man's neighbor could take his land. Deciding to let the man go and spare his life Jericho realized there was no honor in the work he did and resigned from his post that night.



⥈ Name: Rose Montgomery (Secretly and formerly Grace Kingston)
⥈ Age: 19
⥈ Height: 5'3"
⥈ Description: Rose is a lovely young lady with a slim and athletic build. Just because she is slim doesn't mean she isn't without the perfect curves here and there, especially in the chest and rear regions. She is also very naturally muscular from a life of never being able to sit still and always needing to be on the move. Her skin is soft with a slightly tanned color to it but still overall on the pale side. She has platinum blond hair that reaches to her mid to lower back and is overall straight with a slight gentle wave to it. Her eyes are a vibrant mint green with dark, almost black, coloring around the outer ring of her iris.

⥈ Profession: Lady of the Night/Working Girl

⥈ Business: Works at Theodora's brothel

⥈ What brought you to Coldwater?: Rose tells people that she came to Coldwater to find work and adventure but secretly it is because she is in hiding and needed a fresh start as someone new.

⥈ Who came with you?: Rose came to Coldwater alone aside from an older gentleman who was with her when she first came to town but left soon after. Rose doesn't talk about him and he hasn't been back since.

⥈ What's your big secret?: Secretly Rose, or Grace, is the daughter of Michael Kingston, a former business tycoon who died and left his entire estate to her rather than her brothers. Because of this Rose was forced to flee after several failed attempts on her life by her brothers. She went as far west as her father's oldest friend could take her and took up an occupation no one would ever think to look for her in.

First post is up! Once you have your character sheet approved go hog wild!
Here's the link to the RP thread

Regarding roles, so far we have;
Sheriff
Preacher
Doctor
Ladies of the night
Man of the night
Madamme/owner of brothel
Saloon owner/bartender
Blacksmith
Trapper/Hunter
Gambler
Frontierswoman

Since it's a small town, there probably can't be more than one of the businesses, like the Blacksmith or the Madamme and so on.
But I believe there's either the general roles (townsfolk, outlaws, hunters, bounty hunters, gold miners/miners) that there can be more of, or new roles like a new business that isn't in town (shopkeep, stables, gun store, ect.), or if you can think of a new type of profession.
I think that's how it works, correct me if I'm wrong flies_with_owls flies_with_owls
