Allow me to introduce… HT


Name: HT
Age: 26
Born: New York City, USA
Occupation: storekeeper

Just to make this clear, kids, this young man is not a role-model! Whether HT is a true culprit or a victim is not quite known, though.

A few years ago, he was found, drugged into oblivion, in a run-down appartment with a broken window. Below that window, they found the body of a prostitute.
HT claims to be innocent and says he does not even remember what must have been the party of his life. Nothing was found to actually prove his guilt beyond abuse of illegal substances. He served his sentence and after he was set free, could neither find a place to live, nor a job – until he ran into Corvus, who was desperately looking for someone to help him around the [hate this] warehouse.

Corvus doesn’t judge people. For him, the young man smelled about right – which was enough for the Kitteh to hire him and allow him to move into the warehouse.

OOC information:

Originally, [hate this] was founded by two people, Rubicon and me. HT was created as a business account to be used by both of us, but after Rubi left SecondLife, I continued to run the store under my own name. Sometimes, I use HT as a photo model, and while I was having fun with some friends, he got his background story.

Every once in a while I pull him out to run him through a hunt or two, or simply go freebie hunting. And that’s exactly what I did today (and why this post is a bit late).
Through the generous gifts for the Men Only Hunt, HT got a complete makeover today. And while I will admit, the outfit isn’t quite my usual style, I still had a lot of fun putting it together.

HT’s basic looks:

skin: Tableau Vivant (MOH3)

Allow me to introduce… Ion


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.

OOC Information:

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:

shape: my own
skin: Zanzo
hair: Dura
eyes: Umedama Holic
piercings: the HV (Hebenon Vial)
tattoo: Aitui (not seen in pic)

Today’s outfit:

top: Nerd Project (from The Mens Dept)
pants: Kauna
shoes: Deco
make-up: Sorry Asia
necklace: Kosh (from The Mens Dept)
watch: Yummy (from the Arcade Gacha Event)
finger tape: SiniStyle
pose: Madesigns

Allow me to introduce… Corvus Szpiegel

corvus szpiegel

Name: Corvus Szpiegel (aka "the Kitteh")
Age: unknown (mid to late 20s)
Born: New York City, USA
Occupation: self-employed

As you can see, Corvus is a neko – a white tiger, to be precise. His whole body is covered in thick, soft fur, mostly white and light grey, with darker grey to almost black stripes. He has fluffy ears and a long tail, but his most prominent feature are his ice-blue eyes. Corv sports a small goatee-style beard. His hair is black, with a distinct blue in it, except for his white fringe.

The Kitteh usually is quite friendly, maybe a bit shy at first. Just don’t get the idea of touching or even pulling his tail! He may appear a bit clumsy and confused, but don’t take him for stupid! He may lack higher education, but is usually quite fast to grasp new concepts, if brought to him in a way he can understand.

Corvus spent most of his teens on the streets, after escaping from his abusive mother, but recently inherited property from a great-aunt he barely remembered. Now he lives in Mirror House, a cottage built by his German great-grandfather Erich Szpiegel. Corvus runs a small store called [hate this]. He sells mostly t-shirts, with the help of his assistant HT.

OOC information:

Corvus was the first character I created in SecondLife, on the account with the same username – yes, back then we had last names! When I first joined SL, I wanted to become a vampire, but changed my mind after being constantly griefed by vampire players during my first days on the grid. I was looking for a dark sounding name and didn’t want to use any of my previous nicknames for different reasons. I didn’t know you could reload the selection of last names. While Szpiegel may not be the most attractive of names in hindsight, it is fairly unique and grew on me. I have yet to meet another Szpiegel inworld.

The name Corvus could be translated to “mirror raven”. Corvus is the Latin word for raven and Szpiegel is very similar to the German word Spiegel, which means mirror.

Corv’s basic look:

shape: my own
skin: Nomine
hair: Sadistic Hacker
eyes: By Snow / Fairlight Industries (glow effect)
beard: Emortal Concepts (tattoo) / Atro Patena (attachment)
make-up: Delirium Style
ears: OTCR
tail: Lemon Tea (formerly How Vexing, not seen in pic)
nails: Love Soul (not seen in pic)
pose: Madesigns
