...I don't think I've yet drawn him in the same outfit twice... XD;
Name: Lyndon "Lyn"
Birthdate: August 20th
Home Island: Mystery Isle
An eccentric and at times unpredictable character, he can be as much a sweet gentleman as an unscrupulous imp. Possessing a carefree attitude, he has few concerns as to others opinions in relation to his actions, and as such his upbeat and, at times, playfully dramatized demeanor can become quite the sight, as well as a potential annoyance. However, he seems quite aware of the latter fact, and its rare that he's pushing buttons without intention. Oftentimes this is innocent and playful enough, particularly as he takes few insults to heart, but the gesture does acquire notable malicious qualities toward those he's less than fond of- a fact which he doesn't bother hiding.
For those on the other end, he is oftentimes in good humor, and amusingly nonchalant about playing the fool for a laugh- or an attempt thereof, often doing so without request. He enjoys offering people a good time, and if he cannot offer it to them he at least is always entertaining to himself.
He was raised in a same-sex household, and holds both women in his life with high regard and admiration in their strength for being together and raising him, particularly when they did. At a young age he was exposed to an open-minded lifestyle, with parents more than willing to share their quirks with their child. However, it wasn't until later in life that he would come to realize the importance of this upbringing, and find himself embracing it.
His early years were simple enough; being such a shy, quiet child, he never had any grief from his peers. He kept to himself, and would spend much of his time helping his parents around the house and learning from them. It was how he began to learn his main interest concerning the making and designing of performance clothing, and was often exposed to Charlotte's “dramatic” reactions to life, something that would always garner his amusement. Although shy outside of the home, he proved himself silly enough to keep up with his parents.
However, as he grew older, he began to run into problems with himself, growing wary of his shy exterior, particularly in light of peer problems as he aged. He found himself a questionable solution as he became acquainted with a rather unsavory group. They were, for the most part, accepting of his quirks and held themselves in manners he preferred to his own, and the fact that he had grown fond of a certain member certainly assisted his young mind in ignoring certain acts. He was useful in their antics and delinquent acts, creating his own problems with others around him and in school, though he didn't appear to care about this reality. Through a combination of choosing to ignore certain facts, as well as some true ignorance as to the emotional effects of his acts, he at least had the illusion of good friends, and had grown out of his shyness. Yet, through all of this transformation, there finally came a night when he realized how far he had pushed his parents in his acceptance of an illusion, following charged words and the first sight of his parents crying. It was after this that he began a slow process of sorting through his own actions and emotions, and distancing himself from the people he was associated with. It was a significant period of growth, and a time during which he began to truly embrace his more carefree attitude, and became more open with his own interests.
Entering college shortly thereafter, he tried to investigate a major suiting his interests, but found himself frequently switching between ideas. In time he eventually settled on simply earning some money where he could, at least until knowledge of a few islands offered him an opportunity to pursue his own endeavors.
Job: Business Owner
Shop Name: Strange Loop
Stock: Food, Drink, & Entertainment
While serving a decent menu of food and drink during all hours, live entertainment is also provided in the evening hours. The type of entertainment will depend on how much expansion has been done to the stage, and the performer for the night; while typically Lyn or his assistant, Lyn will try to find other performances when money is available. When the building is large enough, it may be used to provide small plays over certain weekends.
Cat Race: Shinx
Cat's Name: Doll/Dolly
She's quite content with as a lap cat, though she welcomes a bit of mischief on occasion. Be careful if she starts to enjoy your company too much however; she tends to show her affection with a little extra spark- a habit that has yet to be broken.
He often would work with his mother on her plays, and assist her in her performance; they made a game of it, and he acquired quite an interest in it, and a fairly impressive talent as well. If any situation becomes a bit too much for him, he'll begin to use some of his acting characters to try and distract from the situation, or simply for some entertainment.
In addition to Charlotte's lines, he would assist her in stitching together a few costumes and parts. Given that many plays are historical, this would often become a family event as well, as Aileen enjoyed pointing out accurate historical designs.
- Does melodrama count?
If you're looking for a dramatic, hopefully entertaining reaction to something, feel free to seek him out.
While daylight overloads his system, his body is capable of converting the softer moonlight into energy. The extra energy dose is rarely needed, but it does mean he can keep odd hours, particularly as the moon is waxing.
He often refers to people very affectionately- darlin', doll, hun; just a few of his favorites.
He can be a lot louder than he thinks he is. Due to his sensitive hearing, he has adjusted to speak at higher volumes than he personally would like to, to be certain that others can hear him. However, at times his judgment can be off, and while he thinks he should be silent to everyone but himself, he in fact is not.
He has a large collection of clothing, and is quite fond of it, even if he's the only person who would make use of it year-round. Walking into his closet is more akin to walking into a theater, or perhaps a Halloween store.
He prefers historically inspired, or even cosplay-esque clothing; he finds the style far more entertaining and interesting.
In light of his cute charm ability, you won't find him without every bit of skin covered- including gloves, which he seems to have some fun with.
His mother, Aileen, was a historian, while Charlotte worked as a small time performer, giving him much of the insight and interests he has today.
