This is where I'll be posting all of my character bios for now.
Since I have to delete Tumblr, I decided that this is where I should post the here, because why not.

If you remember my “Daily Echo” story, you know that Boddy’s murder took place on June 12th, 2026

Full name: Mrs. Blanche White (née Chalkley)
Age: 28
Date of Birth: November 1st, 1998
Place of Birth: Edinburgh, Scotland
Nationality: Scottish
Height: 5' 4" (162.56 cm)
Weight: 126 lbs (57 kg)
Eye Color: Light Blue
Hair Color: Blonde

Born Blanche Chalkley, she grew up in a small farmland in a small village with three other siblings. Her grandmother owned a small bakery on the off-skirts of the village. Blanche’s lifetime dream was to start her own bakery. After her grandmother’s death, 16-year-old Blanche moved to England to find work to start her dream.

Blanche began working as a housekeeper and cook for the Neston family. A few months later, the estate was caught on fire and the family blamed Blanche for it. However, upon further investigation, there was no prove that she did it, so she was let scott-free.

After that incident, she moved to Arlington and was hired by Mrs. Peacock to be her housekeeper, cook, and tutor to her daughter Josephine Scarlett. While working for the Peacock’s, Blanche met her first love, Winslow White. Winslow was Sir Hugh’s chauffler when he came to Arlington Hall to visit. In 2019, Blanche and Winslow were married and moved to Winslow’s hometown in Little Falls, Hampshire. To secure a future for both of them, Winslow joined the army. Unfortunately Winslow nevered return home to his wife, for he was shot while in service in Central Africa in 2021. Blanche kept his name in remembrance of him.

Living alone in Little Falls, Mrs. White tried dating a respected member of the village, but quickly broke things off after she found out he was cheating on her. However shortly after, White did gained the attention of another man, the nephew of her late husband’s employer John Boddy. Boddy has always been smitten by Blanche ever since they met in Arlington, but never push on because she was seeing Winslow at the time, yet that still remained very good friends. John and Blanche have been dating for a while, then around Christmas of 2023 Boddy proposed to White to be his wife. White accepted. The happy couple would have been married around Christmas 2026, after Boddy gained his full inheritance from his uncle.

However rumors began to reached Boddy about White being a thief. When working in Arlington Hall, White had been put in charge of the household accounts. Rumor has it that she was skimming some of the money. White though she could pay the money once the bakery started earning money. It was only a little, no one would notice, right? Mr. Boddy though all these rumors were hogwash. Maybe Boddy told White these rumors, and she thought he was on to her?

Name: Reverend Clement Green
Date of Birth: August 12th, 1971
Place of Birth: Stanton St. Bernard, England
Age: 55
Nationality: English
Height: 5' 8"/172.72 cm
Weight: 220 lbs/99.7903 kg
Eye color: Brown
Hair color: White (formerly Brown)

An austere man, who came to Little Falls two years ago. Very little is know is known about Clement Green’s past, but one thing is certain. He seems to have many of them! In fact, he has told a different story to almost everyone he knows.

According to some accounts, he was raised by poor tenant farmers on a rundown farm in Stanton St. Bernard. His father was jailed for stealing money from the collection plate at the local house of worship. To makes ends meet, his mother took in laundry and told fortunes at a seedy hotel. Young Clement was a likable sort and was able to “charm the birds right out of the trees.” At age 12, he took his gift of gab and began preaching on the revival circuit. He later took to calling himself “Reverend Green”.

The vicar, according to some rumors, has reportedly spreading his own version of “stealing from the rich, and giving to the poor.” For a time, he operated a traveling “tent revival” and encouraged his audiences to donate money to help others less fortunate (like him). Over the past decade, Green has been questioned by police on numerous occasions. Allegations include everything from racketeering to bribery and fraud - not to mention smuggling and money laundering. Although authorities have never been able to prove anything, they suspect Green may be an international swindler of sizable proportions.

The Reverend moved to Little Falls after the original pastor passed away, and who was highly recommended by one of the vicar’s biggest parishioners, Mrs. Peacock. Last summer the Reverend tried to collect “donations” for a new church wing, and one of his biggest funders was Mr. John Boddy. Mr. Boddy was a charitable man, so when Rev. Green came knocking on his door, Boddy gave him a hefty sum of money for the cause. But then the Reverend came back asking for again, and again, and again. Boddy became suspicious of Green, and decided to dig up some dirt on him. Mr. Boddy discovered that this so-called “Reverend” and his uncle Sir Hugh were in cahoots with each other as “business” partners.

The vicar had never been fond of parties, he accepted Mr. Boddy’s invitation because he knew that his old friend Mrs. Blanche White (Boddy’s fiancee & former maid for Mrs. Peacock) would be there. Boddy planned to confronted the “Reverend” about his alleged crimes. Did Reverend Green break the sixth commandment to protect his reputation?

Mrs. Elizabeth Peacock (née Gobelin)
Date of Birth: January 5th, 1978
Place of Birth: Capri, Italy
Age: 48
Nationality: English
Height: 5’ 7” (170.18 cm)
Weight: 142 lbs (64.4101 kg)
Eye color: Blue
Hair color: Ginger

A frequent guest of Tudor Mansion, Elizabeth Peacock (née Gobelin) is a wealthy, well-connected socialite and amateur ornithologist. Born to an Italian/French father and an English mother, the young Elizabeth Gobelin first came to London in 1990 at the age of 12. She was accompanied by her mother only, as her father had met an unfortunate end while climbing in the Pyrenees.

Miss Gobelin attended all the best schools and became one of London’s most sought after débutante. During the aristocrat’s youth, she dabbled in the theater and hoped for a career on the stage. Her involvement in a messy romantic triangle with two opposing political figures forced her to leave England. Fleeing to America in 1999, she became fodder for the newspaper, reporting on her alleged affair with a married businessman who was shot by his wife after the affair was exposed.

While in the United States, she met and befriended Brooklyn Black, sister of Sir Hugh Black. Upon Elizabeth’s return to England in 2000, she was introduced to Sir Hugh. The two were rumored to briefly involved. But within weeks, Elizabeth met and married her first husband, James Scarlett. Mr. Scarlett was a dashing young man who fell head over heels in love with his young damsel. Eight months later, their beautiful daughter Josephine was born. Regrettably, James died in 2003, after stumbling down the stairs at their country house.

Since that time, Elizabeth married three more times. First to Ernest Zaffer in 2008, who died a year later after falling from a hotel balcony in Italy. In 2010, she married Jack Peacock, a businessman, who was reportedly killed in a drunk-driving incident in Bolivia. Her last husband was Sir Matthew Peacock (brother of Jack Peacock), a prominent London Barrister. Again misfortune followed, as Sir Matthew fell overboard and drowned while aqua boarding in the Lake District. It’s been rumored that Mrs. Peacock and Sir Hugh were married by army man, yet Hugh never acknowledged it.

Mrs. Peacock had no other offspring from her previous three marriages. She now lives her last husband’s estate, Arlington Hall. But with the lavish lifestyle she lives, her fortune is nearly exhausted. Doesn’t help that her daughter keeps appearing on the tabloids. Perhaps a weekend at Tudor Mansion will calm her down.

Name: Sir Hugh Black
Date of Birth: April 24th, 1964
Place of Birth: Hampshire, England
Age: 50
Nationality: English
Height: 5' 10' (177.8 cm)
Weight: 210 pounds (95.24 kg)
Eye color: Blue
Hair color: Gray (Formerly Dark Brown)

Hugh Black and his only sister Brooklyn were lonely children. They grew up within the shadowy confines of the family estate-Tudor Mansion. Raised by nannies and educated by private tutors, they had little chance to experience the joys of childhood. Only rarely, did they get the opportunity to play with other children.

In fact, young Black’s only joy in life was swimming laps in the family’s luxurious outdoor pool. It was there that Sir Hugh spent many hours fantasizing about a future where would be in control of everything. Sir Hugh’s mother and father spent considerable time bickering with each other. Both children plotted and schemed for the meager attention doled out by their parents, yet neither was very successful. Over time, Hugh and Brooklyn grew to resent each other as much as they resented their dour lives.

Sir Hugh’s parents divorced when he was 22 years old. His mother left England quite suddenly, never to be heard from again. Several years later, Sir Hugh accompanied his father, Sir Benedict “Old” Black, on a hunting trip to Africa. It was there that Hugh’s father died mysteriously while on safari.
Hugh and his sister found little to bring them joy in their inherited estate.

Brooklyn, in 1992, finally married an American named Samuel Boddy. Shortly thereafter, the newlyweds went to live in the United States. Brooklyn was only too glad to be away from her domineering, grumpy brother. Brooklyn’s husband was raised in an orphanage. He had worked his way through college and became a popular correspondent for a leading Boston Newspaper. Samuel had also written moderately successful books.

Back in England, Sir Hugh married Rose Ravenwood (b. 1974 -2009) in 1995. A year later, they had a daughter, Heather Black. Hugh had no real friends, only business acquaintances. Many owed him considerable sums of money, loaned to them at high interest rates. Sir Hugh’s harsh, self-serving business practices and underhanded methods earned him considerable cash and numerous enemies.

In 2006, his sister and her husband disappeared without a trace while traveling in New York. Their two children, John and Dorothy, had no other family, so he came to live with Sir Hugh. But Black hadn’t have the time to watch them, so he sent them both to boarding school. He paid for the finest education, and during holidays insisted that the servants to raise the two children.

Despite being a strong swimmer, Sir Hugh drowned, at age fifty, in his own swimming pool from from a stroke on the 11th of November, 2014. The details of his Will were not entirely disclosed. Sir Hugh left most of his estate in Trust, be inherited by his nephew John when he reached the age of thirty. Until then, allowances to several unnamed persons were to be paid.

Dr. Madeline Orchid
Image
Age: 22
Date of Birth: 18th May, 2004
Place of Birth: London, England
Nationality: English-Japanese
Height: 5’ 2” (157.48 cm)
Weight: 116.6 lbs (52.8 kg)
Eye Color: Brown
Hair Color: Black

The adopted daughter of John Boddy, Madeline Orchid is one of England’s finest and well-educated scientists with many PhDs in biology and chemistry. Her biological parents, both chemists, were killed in a dreadful fire when she was twelve. During her years in the orphanage, Orchid spent most of her time in the library reading about chemistry and biology. At 14-years-old, Orchid was adopted by Mr. John Boddy as his daughter. After return from St. Hugh, Mr. Boddy began to feel lonely. His sister Dorothy was still in boarding school and his friends weren’t always around. Boddy decided then-and-there to adopt a child.

Wanting to continue her parents’ career in biology, Boddy sent Orchid to a private boarding school in Switzerland. Two years later Orchid was expelled from the school after she was involved in a near-fatal daffodil poisoning incident. She was later homeschooled at Tudor Mansion, her father’s estate. Despite all of that however, Madeline was able to earn a scholarship to Oxford University in 2022.

While on a research trip in the Amazon for her PhD in plant toxicology, she unearthed the legendary Surboi Zinnia flowers. Surboi Zinnias are plants that were used by natives and witch doctors as medicine for the sick. The plants are more commonly found in the Congo, yet this is the first time they’ve been found in South America. Madeline’s real parents were always fantasized with the plants ever since she could remember. Wanting to experiment on the plants herself, she took some. Orchid never told anyone about her discovery — not even her own adoptive father.

After graduating from Oxford in May of 2026, Orchid began secretly experimenting on the plants trying to synthesized it into a wonder drug. She kept her progress in a small journal she kept hidden away, hoping that no one would find it. But some did find it; her father Mr. Boddy. When Boddy was tidying up the conservatory last week, he found the journal under a cushion of a wicker chair. Orchid will take any means to keep her experiment a secret, even if it involves family.
