Name: Seth Smok
Occupation: Businessman, Entrepreneur, Student
Alignment: To Himself, he sees only chances for success and power, if you cannot bring him any then you are not worth his loyalty
Where are you from?
He has little knowledge of his birth but recalls that it was somewhere in England but where he spent several years at was in an orphanage alongside with his younger sister. The orphanage was a Church in London.
How steeped are you in the culture of your people?
He doesn’t recall his real parents only that his name is Seth, he was quickly adopted along with his sister to a man with a last name of Smok, a strange foreign name but Seth took little interest in culture of his race and hardly cared to look deeper upon gaining the time to do so.
What’s your social standing?
Being raised by a well to do business man he grew up to be a future owner of his adoptive father’s company. Wealthy and Powerful, he doesn’t see social status of importance unless it is needed for business.
Political and religious stance?
Protestant Faith, practiced by his adoptive Father (But later abandons), Politically anything that allows Free Market growth
Family:Few would care to glance at his younger sister but many would take high interest to Seth when in the orphanage, seeing his thrist for knowledge and somewhat aggressive attitude. His duty has and will always be towards his younger sister, caring for her when others won’t or can’t. Her pale skin and weak immune system had always scared away possible Adoptive Parents which would had gladly separated the two siblings if not for Seth’s aggressive protective nature for his sister. He had discovered, from just simple deduction, that she was not related to him but he had knew her since his earliest memory and simply felt compelled to protect her. She was his loving sister and that was all.
Upon swindling their future Adoptive Parent into taking in both his sister and him he had entered into a world of business and hierarchy of the wealthy and powerful. Seth though never expected how abusive his new adoptive father would be simply knew that his sister would be better off under the man’s house. Mr. Smok was always pushing him to learn and study, destroying any chance of a normal childhood his father beat into Seth business and competition along with learning assortment of other skills. His adoptive father left many physical scars, such as several upon several scars on his back from whips and other tools of punishment.
Seth learned to loath him and for everything that man stood for but he would never raise a finger nor complain of the work, he never complained about the beatings and lashes received for not completing readings or being correct on tests of several subject matters. No, he knew that his sister was living comfortably and happy and he intended to keep it that way. He gritted his teeth and eventually as he grew older he learned more and more of business and tactics.His hatred for his adoptive father grew to the point that Seth finally rose up against him. Taking over the man’s company and turning his father’s friends against to the promise of wealth and power. Seth played his hand well against his Father, rumors spurred that Seth killed his father in the end but the official report stated suicide through firearm, a pistol, a single bullet through the head. But his father’s friends that helped Seth realized that they were swindled and saw Seth destroy his father’s company (a Slave Trade) and created a moral and ethical transport business along with other smaller business on the side. This prompted these businessmen to formulate a plan to land Seth in prison out of vengeance.
While during this his sister simply worried for what her brother had become but continues to love him regardless of what he he is now due to knowing him before, her big brother looking out for her in the orphanage. Perhaps the only human part of Seth was in his sister, a small light of the goodness of humanity that was never smothered by the darkness or claws of the evil of the world.
Obtaining power and wealth, his desire is to always supply his sister with wealth and happiness, believing that with enough power and wealth his sister would live happy. Perhaps though, this is what he makes himself believe in to trick his mind from believing that his true motive is simply his own greed and hunger for power.
His Adoptive Father, though he hated the man he learned all that he knows from him and from the constant abuse.
His sister continued to try and keep his humanity intact, but understands her brother enough to know that he would never return to his old self that she knew from the orphanage, she is almost like his anchor to what humanity he has left.
Leonardo Da Vinci is a famous artist and inventor that inspired Seth and continued to intrigue him when he was growing up, perhaps a small part of him wishes that he could create the inventions that this man drew up.
