Power/Animal Description

First Psychic Ability: Psychometry

  • Unlocked at Age 9 = 23 Years of XP
  • When touching an inanimate object owned by a human, Liam typically hears a voice, very similar to his father's, retelling a memory linked to said object. It's almost as if he's listening to an audio book, on repeat, being played in a cavern, echoes and all. This can sometimes lead to him having a migraine for hours after.
  • When touching an object owned by another supernatural being, the read is typically much stronger. Not only does Liam hear that same voice, but he also tends to experience whatever emotions were felt at the time of the memory. This usually washes over him as if he were standing naked in an open field being bathed in a bout of weather similar in tone to the emotion. Migraines may occur as well, but less frequently; however, there have been a few unique situations that have caused a bloody nose.

Metaphysical Ability: Sixth Sense

  • Unlocked at Age 15 = 17 Years of XP
  • Once Liam came to have a firm understanding of what psychometry was and how he could use it, his mind began to expand, showing him that living beings have their own auras that he could also read; however, even years later, he still hasn't been able to hone this particular ability beyond knowing that a human reads as a hazy shade of amethyst and supernatural beings read as a roiling, imperial purple. Regretfully, any attempts that he's made to explore this ability further have resulted in him passing out, only after either uncontrollably vomiting or relieving himself, as if he's been drinking like a frat jock during pledge week.

Second Psychic Ability: Shroud

  • Unlocked at Age 18 = 14 Years of XP
  • Once again, Liam lacks significant knowledge in this ability, especially since he associates the abrupt onset of it with a particularly emotional time of his life. Content with simply allowing it to mask his status as a psychic - goodbye to ol' red eye! - he has come to appreciate the ability a bit more now that his kind have started to come clean to the world.

Appearance

The Physical

  • Height, Weight & Body Type: Liam stands tall at six-foot-four and he currently weighs exactly two hundred and fifteen pounds. Thankfully, he is both a big-boned man and a health nut, so he carries the toned, muscular weight rather well.
  • Skin Color & Texture: Naturally more pale skinned than he'd prefer, Liam's perfectly moisturized skin often gives off a healthy glow after a round of weekly tanning. Not one for manual labor, he'll be the first to admit that his oversized, man-paws are ridiculously soft. The fact that he wears gloves more often than not, certainly only adds to their softness.
  • Hair Color & Style: Liam has dark, almost black-brown hair that tends to curl wildly out of control when left to its own devices. Therefore, the meticulous man uses copious amounts of relaxer and then mousse to keep his wavy locks in check. During the winter, he does let it grow a bit longer in the back, mostly to keep his thick neck warm.
  • Eye Color: Born with segmental heterochromia, Liam's bright blue eyes have bits of brown flecks in them. Because of his ability of shroud, his eyes remain blue.
  • Voice: Liam is a baritone, although, when angered, his voice can easily pitch even deeper. He still maintains his Southern English accent, regardless of the fact that he's lived in America for most of his life.

The Material

  • Body Modifications: The mere thought of purposefully marking up or mutilating his body, even in the smallest of ways, makes Liam's stomach turn sour. Hell, he's barely got a scratch on him, thanks to his pampered upbringing and current cushy lifestyle.
  • Wardrobe: Always dressed as if he just stepped off a runway in Milan, Liam's sense of style is impressive, especially since he makes it look so effortless. Being a tall, well-built man, most of his clothes are custom made, tailored to perfection. Being a sensitive, touch-based psychic, he has quite the collection of gloves, too, and is rarely seen without wearing them, be it a pair of driving, workout or formal.
  • Jewelry: Liam has a number of signature, antique pieces, each with a favorable past that makes him feel good when worn.
  • Scent: Seeing that his sense of smell can sometimes play an important part in his use of psychometry, he tends to wear just one type of cologne - a subtle, masculine scent - so that it doesn't overpower his read.

History

Childhood

  • 1988: William Alexander Reginald is born to Alexander and Elizabeth Dalgliesh in Saint Saviour, Jersey, of the Channel Islands. He will be their one and only pride and joy who they will relentlessly spoil.
  • 1991 (3): Alex begins to teach Liam French as a second language. He will end up becoming fluent, some ten years later, with a flawless accent.
  • 1992 (4): For reasons that are never fully disclosed - at least not to Liam, even years later - the Dalglieshs move to Reignhart, Colorado. Alex starts to teach linguistics at Alder Heights College and Eliza takes a part-time research position at the Ridgefield Planetarium.
  • 1993 (5): Liam starts his private education at the Reignhart Academy for Boys.
  • 1995 (7): Alex pushes Liam to learn Spanish as a third language, but fails miserably. In an effort to lift her son's spirits, Eliza decides to teach him how to play the piano.
  • 1997 (9): Liam starts puberty at a very early age. His ability of psychometry surfaces after touching a toy, in an antique shop, that once belonged to a pair of twins who tragically died in a school fire, in Chicago, in 1958. Upon holding the object, it would actually be their mother's painful memories of how she lost both of her boys that Liam would hear. Attempting to explain the experience to his own mother, she initially downplays it as a product of a child with an overactive imagination; however, after speaking with her husband, the two come to the stark realization that their son is a natural born psychic, just like Alex.
  • 1998 (10): Alex does everything in his power to encourage Liam to explore his ability, but with his own talents resting solely in interpretation, the process is fraught with numerous challenges. This, however, does not deter the man from nurturing his son to be the best psychic he can be.
  • 2000 (12): Liam finds himself becoming attracted to his bestfriend and classmate, Erick, but he doesn't dare act on such forbidden feelings.

Adolescence

  • 2001 (13): Feeling like a third wheel, as Alex and Liam spend all of their free time together training their abilities, Eliza starts to stray in her roles as a wife and mother. By the end of the year, she starts having an affair with a man from work.
  • 2002 (14): Feeling guilty for ignoring her son, Eliza buys Liam a horse and teaches him how to ride. The two become close for a number of months, but once winter sets in, and they are unable to ride as often, they start to grow apart once more.
  • 2003 (15): Liam reaches full maturity and, upon doing so, finally finds himself better equipped to utilize his ability of psychometry, as if a switch was suddenly flicked on in his favor. It is at this time that he also comes to understand, under the guidance of his father, that all living things have an aura, similar to those he sometimes sees when interacting with an inanimate object; however, instead of covering the full spectrum, these auras only appear to Liam in shades of purple and are fleeting at best.
  • 2004 (16): Unbeknownst to Liam, his father nearly leaves his mother after finding out about the affair that she's been having for nearly three years; however, instead of confronting her about it, he simply turns a blind eye for reasons he's unable to disclose at the time.
  • 2005 (17): In yet another attempt to buy her son's affection, Eliza purchases Liam his first car, but instead of taking her out for a spin in the shiny new auto, he takes his father and bestfriend instead.
  • 2006 (18): Liam graduates with honors from the Reignhart Academy for Boys. That summer, he has his first same-sex relationship with a young man from work; however, just as he's coming to terms with his sexuality and is about to come out to his friends and family, his ability of shroud rears its unexpected head. Taking it as a sign that he needs to refrain from divulging such intimate details about himself - especially to his bestfriend, Erick, whom he's come to love like a brother - Liam remains in the closet for nearly five more years.
  • 2007 (19): Alex starts having an affair of his own with one of his students.

Early Adulthood

  • 2008 (20): Liam starts attending Colorado College in Colorado Springs.
  • 2009 (21): Looking to broaden his musical talents, he takes up the violin.
  • 2011 (23): Liam graduates with a degree in Creative Writing. After spending the summer abroad, hopping from one European city to the next and, well, from one alluring man's bed to another, he returns with the singular goal of finally coming out to his family and friend, which he does, without delay, only to be shunned by his outraged mother. Inspired by his son's life-changing announcement, Alex comes clean about his own sexuality, essentially putting an end to his marriage of nearly 25 years.
  • 2012 (24): Disgusted by the absurd popularity of the subpar "Fifty Shades" series, Liam takes up his pen in haste and writes his own erotic novel with a thrilling, supernatural twist. Sending it off to several publishers, mostly as a joke, he suddenly finds himself on the receiving end of no less than six, shockingly lucrative offers. Unwilling to let such tantalizing prospects slip through his fingers - regardless of the fact that he would essentially be writing well-crafted, queer-themed smut for the rest of his literary life - Liam signs on the dotted line to produce a minimum of three books that will earn him well over six figures when all is said and done.
  • 2013 (25): Liam starts writing under the pen name of Ward Astor for Dreamspinner Press in Tallahassee, Florida, and while it's work that could easily be accomplished from his apartment in Colorado Springs, he decides to relocate to the Sunshine State. After a few minor rewrites - which would allow for a full series to be written, instead of it being a standalone novel - the manuscript that he initially submitted is published and immediately becomes an unprecedented hit. It will be the first queer-centric, supernatural thriller, penned by an openly gay author, to not only sell over 3 million copies in six weeks, but also remain in the top ten of the New York Times Best Seller list for nearly a year and a half. Containing explicit sex scenes, controversy naturally erupts, but only seems to drive sales instead of hinder them.
  • 2014 (26): Liam writes and releases the second book in his Bound in Blood series. Several movie studios vie for the film rights to the first installment. In a daring move - especially coming from a typically family-friendly studio - Dreamworks wins out over Lions Gate by offering close to double.
  • 2015 (27): Dreamspinner releases book number three and filming begins at Dreamworks. Liam finds himself relocating, yet again, to Glendale, California, so he can oversee the big-budget production, as per his contract. Looking to strike while the erotica iron is still blazing hot, the studio pushes for a 2016 release, strategically filling the gap between Fifty Shades and its theatrical sequel. The film would go on to be a blockbuster of epic proportions, once again breaking numerous records for a queer-centric release.
  • 2016 (28): Taking a temporary break from writing - since he met his three book obligation with his publisher - Liam finds himself with plenty of free time to travel, that is, when he's not obligated to appear at a promotional event for Dreamworks. Able to actively pursue his hobby of collecting rare antiques with compelling stories attached to them, the psychometrist finds himself becoming oddly addicted to the specific act of experiencing another psychic's deepest and darkest memories; however, this would be but a mere sampling of the supernatural smorgasbord yet to come.
  • 2017 (29): Exhilarated by the revelation that vampires and weres do indeed exist, Liam finds himself overwhelmingly enthralled by the prospects of being able to read their otherworldly remembrances as well. Already well-connected with several prestigious dealers - both legitimate and not - Liam immediately puts them to good use, directing each to notify him the moment they acquire even the most mundane looking bauble belonging to either species.
  • 2018 (30): As Liam's collection grows, so does his repertoire of bone-chilling tales. Naturally, being a storyteller at his core, a novel - if not an entire new series - starts to take shape, but instead of it being a work of fiction, he now sees the excellent opportunity to delve into the non-fiction end of the literary pool.
  • 2019 (31): Feeling the need to ground himself in a reality and a place he once knew like the back of his hand, Liam decides to move back to Ridgefield County. Fully aware that this will bring him within spitting distance of his homophobic mother and her new husband, he willingly makes the move just the same, relying on the support of countless others, including his empathetic father, Alex, and relentlessly loyal bestfriend, Erick.
  • 2020 (32): Caught up in his son's lust to acquire rare artifacts with richer, supernatural histories, Alex decides to support such efforts by retiring as a professor so that he can become a relic hunter - also known as a glorified grave robber - on Liam's behalf.
