9/1/06 02:58 am - OOC: Meme - My Beckett...

My Beckett:

-Was not born into Lordship; earned such through many years of loyal service to the East India Trading Company.

-Is well educated, and intelligent, as well as a keen manipulator.

-Was a noted overachiever in school.

-Was also teased about height in school (5'5), and grew into a lone wolf throughout adolescence.

-Enjoys horseback riding, preferring it to carriage rides, and having brought his own horse to the Caribbean with him, a beautiful light grey gelding named Goliath.

-Lost his father, a well-established merchant, to a pirate attack off Singapore...did not love his father, but feared and respected him, and felt a certain injustice at his demise at the hands of such 'ignorant wretches'.

-Has a decided case of Napoleon Complex...in 'short', he is overly ambitious in order to compensate for his small stature...something he sees as a handicap.

-Sees a distinct difference between educated upper class and 'lesser sorts', and holds no moral issue with using those below his station to achieve his means.

-Enjoys having power over others, judging himself as worthy of such authority.

-Dislikes not having control of a situation...as a result, has an EXTREME dislike of Jack Sparrow, bordering on a personal grudge.

-Always believes his decisions to be in the best interests of the East India Trading Company, England, and the development of the world as a whole.

-Has never actually killed anyone...has ordered many deaths, but never been personally involved in their demise, usually leaving such things to Mercer.

-Carries a pocket pistol, just in case, and would not hesitate to use it.

-Dreams of expanding the East India Trading Company to include the West Indies as well...and exterminating all pirates from the seven seas.

-Sees freedom in the exact same light that he views loyalty and love...luxeries that can be purchased like merchendise.

-Has, fittingly enough, never loved, or been loved...not even by his own parents, who simply viewed him as a necessity to continue the family line and uphold the honor of said family.

-Was really very dissapointed in Norrington...is expecting better things from him in the future, and would be willing to reward such.

-Is really rather wary of Elizabeth...expects she is made of the same stuff as Sparrow, making her unpredictable and a threat, however alarmingly pretty she may be.

-Treats his staff adequately, if distantly...has no desire to breed discontent in his household, or his company, but does not wish to deal with servants and staff more than he has to.

-Is more power-hungry than righteous, and is always open to a bargin he sees as benificial.

-Has a rather morbid sense of humor, but a sense of humor nonetheless.

-Hates sailing.

-Has had Mercer at his side for nearly seven years...trusts him as a master trusts his faithful hunting dog, and treats him with favor accordingly.

-Trusts no one else. Period. Anyone can be bought, in his eyes, so long as the price is right.

So yes. I'm Bindiya, and this'll be my character journal for Lord Cutler Beckett, for the community potc_altdmc.

All entries from here on in will be In Character (IC), unless marked as Out Of Character (OOC), like this one. And of course, you can read everything that's in here. You just can't apply it to your character's own personal knowledge. Unless, of course, they were involved.

That's that, it seems. Going to give this a shot.

And, since it seems to be the proper way to start off a journal here:
