Name: Chanda Fergusson Age: 20 Born: Dublin, Ireland Occupation: student (biology, genetics), part-time model
Here’s a young woman you don’t want to mess with. Too clever for her own good, Chanda decided to study genetics, in order to find a cure for vampirism. She wants to help her mother and godfather, who are both affected by what Chanda believes to be a genetical mutation.
She is very dedicated to her studies, but never forgets to have some fun, too. She has quite the reputation for playing friendly tricks on her fellow students. Rumours have it, she has fairy blood running through her veins.
In her spare time, Chanda works as a model for [hate this].
Originally, I simply created Chanda as a female model for my store, with no intention to turn her into a full-fledged character. Her main purpose was to look cute, with an edge to it. No offense to those who love their barbie girl models, they sure are pretty. It’s just not me.
Chanda’s basic looks:
shape: Flowers skin: Glam Affair eyes: Umedama Holic hair: Wasabi Pills (*) tattoo/piercings: the HV
(*) Chanda’s hair changes a lot, but it usually is either ginger or copper, rarely blonde. As a character, she is a redhead.
A few words about her outfit: I don’t normally shop for female clothes and my selection is very limited. The coat is meant for male avatars. To make it fit, I reduced her breast size to 20 (usually, it is around 45). I like the tomboyish look on Chanda, but if you want to keep your cleavage, you are probably better off looking for another coat.

Name: Marten Zann Age: 23 Born: Amsterdam, Netherlands Occupation: violinist
Today, I’d like to introduce Marten, an aspiring violin virtuoso from Amsterdam. Despite his young age, Marten is a widower.
He met Annie, the love of his life, in music school when they were still teenagers. As soon as Annie turned 18, they got married and moved together, but their luck only lasted two short years before Annie became severely ill and passed within weeks.
If you ever get to meet Marten, you will find him very reserved, maybe he won’t even talk to you. Please don’t take it personally. He does try to carry on, but his only comfort is his music.
I have debated for a while whether to introduce Marten as a character. His tragic story sure isn’t for everyone – and isn’t meant to be. Annie never existed as a character, though, she is just part of his tale.
On the other hand, and the reason why I did introduce him here, is the fact I love to use him as a model. Maybe I am the only one to see the pain in his eyes, but knowing about him, his story, helps me create a certain mood for some photos. I am not sure if that makes sense to anyone else, but that’s the way I tick.
Marten’s name is inspired by the main character of my favourite webcomic, Questionable Content, and the short story The Music of Erich Zann by H.P. Lovecraft. The story is about a voiceless violinist who keeps away demons with his music.
Marten’s basic looks:

tears: Sorry Asia piercing: the HV (Hebenon Vial) violin: Grollwerk

Name: Ion Age: 15 Born: his father's private island Occupation: student
Now this young man is Ion (spelled with a capital i, not a lowercase L). He is a 15 year old human old boy. Ion is very clever and a bit of a nerd. He dreams of running his own video game company after finishing school and university.
Ion’s hobbies are skateboarding (snowboarding in winter), playing video games and cooking. Even though he is quite athletic, Ion is known to be very accident-prone and is rarely seen without a cast, bandage or brace (from my own line of medical props, of course).
He lives with his mother, who is a fetish model and professional dominatrix. Even if he is fully aware of what she does for a living, she keeps details (and customers) away from him. Ion’s father is the owner of a big company and insanely rich.
Money has never been an issue for the boy, but he is not a spoiled brat, unless you count his regular shopping sprees. Ion loves to change his looks and is not too shy to use make-up or wear crazy costumes.
Ion was the second character I created in SL, again on the same account. Since his looks are distinctively different from Corvus, it shouldn’t be too hard to tell them apart. He came to existance as a character during a time when I felt very vulnerable due to real life circumstances. Maybe that is why he turned out to be a bit of an emo boy. The people behind his family and friends really helped me to get through these hard times, and we had wonderful roleplay together.
To make this clear, by roleplay, I don’t mean any dirty stuff. First of all, I do not have any sexual relationships in SL at all and I definitely want to keep it that way – I’m happy and content with my RL relationship. And secondly, there is the fact Ion is 15 and a minor.
Ion’s name is the Basque and Romanian form of John, and is pronounced eeon (not aion).
Ion’s basic looks:
