A jester who lost his charm ; — Moonsik has a reputation amongst his regular patrons. A stoic creature who barely flinches when someone brands a gun at his face or screams at the top of their lungs. A life of heartache and loss has led him down a bath of booze and self-destructive tendencies that leaves him mostly numb to those around him. Those who cast concerned looks, who moon and awe over him or open their hearts get double-crossed and cast aside to rot with the rest of the poor cast of characters from his past.

Henry (AA): Are you coming to the meeting tonight?
lHenry (AA):: I hope I see you next week.
When it comes to Moonsik, there's a certain consternation that hangs heavily on his shoulders. He's not very talkative and doesn't find much that interests him. He's good at earning tips, knows when to laugh or joke with the best of them; but, at the end of the day, he is a lone wolf who is unbothered by almost everyone he encounters.
Deep down, there's a sweet young man who doesn't know what he wants in life. It seemed fate was the thing that forced his hand and led him to follow the path the other people around him had already made for him. He's space-y at times due to his imagination that he relies a lot on when boredom creeps over the bar.
// TW: death, self-harm.
Moonsik was born in America to a lovely mom and an absentee dad. He filled the role of being the 'man in the house' and developed an unhealthy dependency on his mom. The pair went through hell-and-back to keep themselves above water when it came to having a roof over their heads. When he was a teenager, he found out his mother had gone to the local don in the largest gang in the city and had begged for money to help pay off their house. When the debt collectors came banging on their door, it left his mother stressed.
When he came home a few weeks later, he found him mom unconscious with her once-full sleeping pill prescription bottle next to her. She was unable to be resuscitated and was left in a coma. Moonsik was besides himself. When the debt collectors came again, he told them he had taken on her debt and he couldn't pay. The pair called their boss who gave him two options—come work for him or be killed.
So, with little fanfare, he went off to work at the mob boss' new bar that had opened in the rich part of town. With the money he earned, he decided to use the small amount of money he got to keep to pay for his mother's medical bills.
When he turned twenty-one, he found himself becoming interested in the alcohol he served. Ever since then, he became addicted to how easy it became to forget his shitty reality.

why try to change me now?
Drinking coffee at cafes. Fashion Design. Snow falling. Listening to jazz. Wearing tights. Pretty dresses. Shopping for high heels. Spending time with her cat. Listening to a fire roar. Playing the piano. Pretty stationary. Using letter daggers. Running on a foggy day. Laughing over the sounds of a crowd. Dancing. Her cat purring in her lap. The smell of old book pages.
Loud, outgoing, and the life of the party, Talullah lives for the thrill. Nothing is worth her time unless it's new and exciting. No matter how great the risk is, she lives in the here and now. It's no wonder that she ended up in a lounge bar run by the mafia. If she isn't living life on the edge—then what's the point? Lula's overly impulsive decision making is not conducive to long-term planning and commitment. Her interest can only be held for so long, making her list of exes longer than some short stories. She lives for herself and herself only. That philosophy not only gives her a pretty decent-sized ego; but makes her incredibly casual about her relationships. She doesn't hold back from speaking her mind, often forgetting that people have feelings that he can hurt. And even when Lula does hurt other's feelings—it's not her problem, it's theirs.
She absolutely adores the spotlight. If you can stand her often show-boating personality, Lula is actually incredibly fun to be around. She has a genuinely great sense of humor, is a very entertaining story teller, and her spontaneous ideas are an endless supply of enjoyment. Despite her being incredibly blunt, her silver tongue often gets her off the hook. If she has an underlying agenda, she won't hesitate to use her charm to her advantage. Another very helpful thing about her is her uncanny sense of observation. Maybe it's because she's interacted with so many different types of people or always scrutinized other's reasons for doing things or it could be that he was just born with a natural talent to spot small differences. Whatever the case, Lula picks up on the slightest of changes and uses them to decipher people's attitudes and motives. Pair that with her willingness to say just about anything, she isn't afraid to ask people what their problem is.
For both the good and the bad.
Life certainly hadn't always been a game of cat-and-mouse for Talulah Fabre; but, it was all that she could really remember. Born as the first-born child to her father, Florian, and her mother, Mia, Lula had a fairly fantastic childhood. Her father was the French-Armenian consultant to a large research corporation in the United Kingdom which meant that she spent most of her time traveling in between England, Armenia and France. Despite not having a set place to call home, Talulah loved learning about the cultures and histories of each place she lived. Though she never made a lot of friends, Lula was never really lonely as she always had her mother around. The two were practically inseparable, best friends through and through.
But all good things must come to an end.
It was thunder-storming the night that Beatrix awoke to the sounds of shouting in her home. Barely a month after her thirteenth birthday, she snuck out of her room and to the main staircase of their home. Peering down through the railings at the top, she saw her mother and father arguing with a man dressed in a sharp black suit. If she didn't know any better, Lula would have thought that it was just another one of her father's co-workers. But that quickly changed when the man pulled a silenced weapon from within his suit coat and shot her mother point blank. At that point, all hell broke loose.
Florian immediately tried to restrain the man, successfully knocking the weapon from his hand. It slid across the floor before gently bumping into the bottom of the staircase. Talulah froze, unsure of what to do. But she knew she needed to help her father. So, she silently moved down the stairs and picked up the gun in her shaking hands. The girl couldn't help but stare at it for a moment, having never even seen a handgun in real life. But a loud thud caught her attention, revealing her father on the floor unmoving in a growing pool of his own blood. His attacker had finally noticed the girl and was approaching her with weapon in hand.
Without thinking, Lula pointed the gun, closed her eyes, and pulled the trigger until it just clicked.
Everything from that moment on is a faded memory. Lula barely remembers the police showing up, sequestering her away. More men in suits showed up, attempting to take her statement. A few days later, she was released into the care of her uncle. However, it didn't take long before she realized the reason her parents were killed. Her uncle had been a former member of the mafia and had failed to pay the debts he had racked up. In order to hurt the other man, they decided to kill off the closest family members he had to leave a message that they wanted their money back.
Talulah knew she had two options—to move on from her trauma or find a way to bring justice to her parents. However, her choice was taken from her when the mafia don showed up at her home. It was the same terror she felt when she had killed the man in self-defense. However, the older man told her he wanted to make her a part of his club.
He knew of her achievements in music and had wanted her to sing and potentially seduce any men he needed her to to get information. When she asked if she had a choice in the matter, the don told her she could either accept or they would kill her uncle and leave her alone. Caught in a tangled web and with limited options, she decided to accept his offer.
For the past four years, she's worked at the bar and charmed men she would have spent no time around otherwise. Although she dislikes the work, even she can admit that it makes decent money.
She still stays with her uncle and although they aren't happy with one another, they're the only family they got. Despite their rocky relationship, the two have managed to work together to make Lula feel a little more comfortable working around thugs and criminals. With her sweet smile and sultry appearance, most people except her to just be a ditzy singer; however, she can easily fire a gun and is capable of fighting hand-to-hand when she needs to.
