Elizabeth Donahue is the biggest busy body who ever busy bodied in the history of busy bodying. If you are of relation to the Donahues or the Delongpres ... you have been warned.

Name: Elizabeth Donahue
Age: Seventy-One
Family most closely affiliated with: Donahue and Delongpre by way of her daughter's marriage
Three Fast Facts:
- Born Elizabeth Constance Duvall, Elizabeth came from an affluent family out of of Long Island, New York that proudly traces their lineage all the way back to the Mayflower. The Duvalls were bankers and businessmen, making shrewd investments on technological innovations emerging during the Industrial Revolution and pioneering the earliest forms of modern capitalism. It wasn't until the advent of Speculation and the creation of the Stock Market that they experienced their true boon with wealth however. As the daughter of a prominent and wealthy WASP family, her one and singular duty was to marry a man of equally impressive birth. She did so gladly in the summer of 1962 to a one, Charles Donahue.
- There is absolutely no question who wore the pants in the thirty-eight-years Charles and Elizabeth were married. Elizabeth is as much an overlord at home as she is in the office, micromanaging the lives of her children and her grandchildren in much the same way she might her subordinates. Domineering, intractable and uncompromising, Elizabeth Donahue knows best and damned be anyone who try and tell her otherwise. She holds her family to an impossible standard, her unwillingness to compromise prompting her youngest daughter to exile when she found herself pregnant at sixteen out of wedlock and determined to still carry the child to term. Jennifer Donahue left for California to become Jennifer Jordan and never looked back and Elizabeth, stubbornly and foolishly, let her. That her youngest daughter died before the two could ever reconcile has weighed heavier on her heart than she lets on to and she has spent the last decade or so trying to make right on that wrong.
- Elizabeth is trying to get all her ducks in a row before her final, inevitable curtain call, not by choice but out of necessity. She has survived seven economic recessions, two failed corporate acquisitions, the deaths of her husband and two of her four children and is just tenacious enough to outlive the remaining two and their progeny as well but for a malign tumor recently discovered on her left breast. There are few challenges in life she's met and found any difficulty in conquering, but cancer is a horse of an entirely different color. She has yet to take any of her family into her confidence.

Name: Sydney Jordan
Age: Twenty-Four
Family most closely affiliated with: Donahue by birth through her mother
Three Fast Facts:
- California born and bred, Sydney grew up far removed from the luxury and wealth the Donahue's are known for, comfortably slumming away in middle class suburbia not even aware of her maternal family's existence until a car accident claimed the lives of both her parents in one fell swoop. Enter Elizabeth Donahue, wealthy Virginian socialite and entrepreneur. Upon assuming guardianship of Sydney and her two sisters, the trio were uprooted from Southern California to Richmond, Virginia, turning the only life she had ever known for sixteen years completely on its head.
- Richmond proved to be a bit of a culture clash, Sydney having been raised to believe that all things of worth in life were earned by hard work and perseverance rather than just being handed over on a silver platter. Determined to make the transition as smooth as possible and quickly assimilate into her new surroundings, Sydney coped with the loss of her parents by acting as a mediator between her sisters and their estranged grandmother whenever tensions arose. Her eagerness to please others being misconstrued for pliability, it wasn't long before she involuntarily became Elizabeth's newest pet project. Not content to let her life be molded by the ambitions of other people, Sydney consented to being paraded about society like a prize debutante in exchange for pursuing her own ambitions undisturbed. School, ballet and her new social responsibilities would help distract her from being on the losing end of a love triangle involving her eldest sister and a friend of the Donahue family long enough to gain acceptance to the Tisch School of Arts in New York. Without warning she stole away into the night on the eve of her seventeenth birthday, gone from Richmond as suddenly and abruptly as when she first appeared on the scene ten months prior.
- Though hardly a penniless vagrant begging in the streets of New York City, despite what her 'lovely' cousin Lynette might say, Sydney does not benefit from the same level of monetary support she might have had she pursued a more practical career in business or law as her cousins have. For what it's worth though, she couldn't be happier with the path she chose to take, hard though it may have been at times. Sydney tenured with New York City ballet for two years and upon graduating from New York University, was recruited to the American Ballet Theater as a soloist and is currently on the fast track to becoming a Principle dancer within the company.

Name: Rick Gallagher Moretti
Age: Thirty
Family most closely affiliated with: The Morettis
Three Fast Facts:
• Rick isn’t a complicated man. He wants what he wants when he wants it. As a child, it was usually his sibling’s toys. His covetous nature proved fairly innocent throughout high school and university. Minus the occasional ‘borrowing’ of his friend’s snacks and test answers, Rick was a good man. Life avoided going south until gambling came into play. What started as fun became an obsession. Rick was ’earning’ his own keep, for once, and with it came all he desired – women, power, etc. When his father confronted him, Rick pled the fifth. Comparisons to Frank Gallagher’s shady past did not detour him. Rick’s lifestyle soon led him to a crossroads. His father wanted their family to maintain success honorably. An ultimatum was presented, and Rick chose poorly.
• After disassociating himself from the Gallaghers, Rick traveled the globe. He inevitably encountered trouble counting cards in Bora Bora. His return to the states was a lackluster one at best. His father’s words rang true. Rick was no longer welcome in New York. Relocating to New Jersey, he looked up a former acquaintance/rival…Daniela Moretti. Rick used the connection to gain an audience with her father. After much cajoling, a job was granted.
• Rick pushed papers and (literally) cleaned up after the Moretti patriarch for three years. His patience paid off. Trust was earned and a bodyguard position offered. Guarding Daniela turned into flirting with Daniela, which led to ‘love’ and marriage (yes, he took her name). Rick was exactly where he wanted to be. In actuality, he’s never been loyal to the Morettis. He entered their fold to destroy them. In Rick’s twisted mind, he believes taking them for all they’re worth will convince his father he’s a respectable ally. He’s simply that deluded.

I'm looking for a couple of ex-husbands for my Delongpre girl and would love it if one or several appeared in game. If anyone's interested, shoot me a PM.

Name: Prescott Sinclaire
Age: Twenty-Eight
Family most closely affiliated with: Sinclaire
Three Fast Facts:
- Prescott Sinclaire, son of larger than life wrestling promoter, Donovan Sinclaire, spent much of his formative years in the locker rooms of grand sports venues, bumping elbows with the likes of Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage. He was raised in a literal fantasy world, where a soap opera was staged and dramatized two nights out of the week for a live televised audience. And of course he loved it. Prescott lived in a perpetual, never-ending fantasy land, accompanying the Ric Flair's of the industry on drug and booze sojourns regularly by the age of fourteen. Concepts of "consequence" and "responsibility" were utterly foreign abstractions to him and he grew up accordingly -- as a selfish, spoiled little rich boy born with a silver-spoon in his mouth and little to no regard for the people around him.
- As a member of the Sinclaire family he was expected to become an active participant in the management of the family business and did so first as a talent scout and developer and later by becoming directly involved in the creative writing aspect of their programing. He even enjoyed moderate success as a semi-professional wrestler himself, appearing on screen as an only slightly exaggerated version of himself as part of a storyline pitting father and son against one another for control of the company. It had been at the biggest Pay Per View event of the year, 18,000 seats booked at Madison Square Garden and broadcasting live in 16 different countries, that Prescott showed up high as a fucking kite and barely able to keep himself standing on two feet. He had been slated to face some baby-face John Cena equivalent, his inebriation somehow managing to get past management, and turned up to the ring with pupils dilated and swaying precariously like a leaf on a tree before collapsing into a seizure and overdosing on live, family friendly television.
- And so ended Prescott's brief whirlwind career in professional wrestling. After suffering through an intense drug rehabilitation program, Prescott was promptly shipped off to college bought and payed for by his father. Somewhere in between the many Jell-O shots, lines of coke (so much for rehab) and an unfortunate drinking and biking incident involving Keggy the Keg Prescott still managed to graduate with an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Dartmouth College. He is currently working on his MBA and is supposedly engaged to one of the Delongpre daughters (unfortunately for her) after finally, finally being told to shape the fuck up or risk being disinherited.

I'd love it if someone could play Angelo's older (probably at least in her mid thirties) wife, but if not, she'll be NPC'd.

Also: Lily James is going to be a Gallagher daughter, and Harry Treadaway is going to be a Donahue. Those are my three for the moment, unless someone is in dire need of something else from me. Lily is fairly fleshed out, but the Harry character is as of yet undeveloped so if someone has ideas, please PM!

Name: Angelo Moretti
Age: Twenty-Eight
Family most closely affiliated with: Moretti
Three Fast Facts:
• None of the current generation Moretti boys wears the unfortunate moniker of ‘shark in a suit’ with pride quite like Angelo. As first born he’s always been something of a model child, a figure his parents could gesture grandly to in the midst of lectures with his younger siblings about how best to behave. He was always smiling, always flawlessly put together, always quick to duck his head at perceived wrong doings and apologize with such humility his mistakes would seem so trivial in the end regardless of their impact. He skated by easily through the years despite a love of childhood mischief, never punished seriously without it being rescinded later and a brand new video game or sports car shoved his way as a consolation prize. One memorable year in high school, a classmate beat Angelo to a pulp after observing him hitting shamelessly on his then girlfriend, and the next night the boy awoke to a severed horse head tucked casually next to him in bed. Angelo’s responsibility was heavily rumored, but nothing was ever proven. When accused, Angelo simply smiled one of his trademark smiles—mostly teeth—and replied that it was ‘too on the nose for his tastes.’
• Unlike most children of the wealthy, Angelo’s parents didn’t need to purchase his ivy league education. Angelo was accepted to Dartmouth on his own merit, exceedingly clever with mathematics and desirous of a degree in mechanical engineering. Business management was a natural tack on though Angelo had little interest in pursing that route, caring not about running his family’s casinos some day but rather ‘building a better mousetrap.’ After he graduated he was given a position first as part of a team handling security and monitoring for theft and eventually he was promoted to overseeing it, though he spent most of his time developing think tanks about increasingly elaborate ways to cheat casinos out of their money. To prevent it from ever happening to any of his family’s enterprises, of course. He wouldn’t deny a certain temptation to test run any of them on the competitors out in Vegas, however.
• When it comes to his personal life, Angelo would prefer to pretend he doesn’t have one. He is, however, ‘faithfully’ married to an older woman whom he’s never actually loved, the match having been his father’s idea to link the Morettis to a more legitimate line of credit. Angelo treats her more like a sister, fucks her every month or so to keep her quiet, and tolerates her continued efforts to ‘get closer to him, as husband and wife’ with thinly-veiled irritation. He cheats on her without hesitation though not very often, his eye isn’t as wandering as that of his best and closest friend, Prescott Sinclaire, but on occasion someone catches his attention and his wedding ring comes off as easily as any other bit of jewelry.

Hey guys. Can I take on a Delongpres heir and a Gallagher heir? Most likely both males, so I may take on a third female to even things out. Have some ideas, but always open to more. PM me.

Of course. I will be updating the OP with all the profiles we have in already as well as with the newest holds.

Husband #1 has been claimed but if anyone has any interest in playing one of the two schmucks she took to the farm or is interested in possibly playing her newest mark, let me know. Otherwise I would also be happy if someone played her partner in the firm she works for, an assistant, etc.

Name: Adrienne Delongpre
Age: Thirty-One
Family most closely affiliated with: Delongpre
Three Fast Facts:
- Adrienne Delongpre had been the picture of poise, respectability and intelligence right out the gate, a model for which her younger siblings could emulate and a source of pride for both her parents. Amiable, charismatic and above all things, dutiful, Adrienne had never been the sort to rebel, happily swallowing the ideologies spoon-fed to her without any question. Even in the face of temptation when a high school teacher's mutual attraction for her had come to light, she proved vigilante in the end, putting a stop to the flirtation before it could escalate and cause scandal. She would later go on to attend Yale Law School on her own merit, much to the delight of both her mother and her grandmother who are both alumni with the University.
- It was at Yale that Adrienne would meet her first husband. Though familiar with one another long before attending the same University from having traveled in the same social circles, Adrienne and Philip Sinclare did not start dating until her freshmen year of college. Following a short courtship of eight months, Phil proposed and with the encouragement of her parents, Adrienne accepted. On paper Phil had been the perfect match: intelligent, gently bred, charming and handsome. Young and impressionable as she was, that had been enough for her, even with rumors of infidelity brewing as early as the engagement. The honeymoon stage of their marriage lasted no more than a year before Adrienne could no longer delude herself to the truth. The end of their marriage proved ugly and the divorce uglier still. Without a prenup Adrienne forfeited half her assets to her husband. She might have been able to survive the humiliation with more grace were it not for the fact that she was also pregnant. Adrienne miscarried early in her third term two months after the divorce was finalized. That had been the straw that broke the Camel's back, shattering what remained of Adrienne's already fragile emotional state and sending her spiraling into a dark pit of depression.
- Two long years of therapy left Adrienne a changed person with very little of the benevolent and compassionate spirit she once possessed remaining to her when all was said and done in the end. In that girl's place is now a shrewd, ruthless and hardened woman, a rigid chunk of ice in place of where her heart used to be. When Adrienne returned to law school she switched her concentration from corporate to family law and woe be the man unfortunate enough to find himself sitting opposite of her during a divorce settlement. Thrice married and thrice divorced now, Adrienne has recouped the losses from her first marriage tenfold, leaving a small trail of broken hearted and bankrupted men in her wake. The only quality remaining of the Adrienne of old is her unwavering loyalty toward her family who serves as one of their most staunch of champions as well as the primary legal representative for the Delongpres as well as her mother's maternal family, the Donahues.

I adore Taren. And count me in. Can I take Mark Pellegrino as the patriarch of the Gallagher family and David Tennet, undecided as yet.

Taking male volunteers to be shamelessly leered at. YOU KNOW YOU WANT IT.

Name: Julian Donahue
Age: Twenty-five
Family most closely affiliated with: Donahue
Three Fast Facts:
• Being born into the Donahue family comes with certain expectations, and Julian has fulfilled many and most of them for a majority of his life. Pre-adolescence, he was a dutiful, dignified little rich boy drone, mannerly and polite to his peers and betters while simultaneously snooty and superior to those he deemed ‘below him,’ similar in heart and spirit to his sister, Lynette. After suffering through and eventually besting puberty he had his requisite period of rebellion, sneaking out of the Richmond estate to ‘slum it’ at public school parties with his favorite cousin, Sydney (renting a Prius, rocking lower-level designer clothes, totally blending in with the dregs of society). He was always careful never to upset his parents or grandparents, always ensured he had a cover and back-up cover, and made it through those tumultuous teenaged years without so much as a nasty note in his permanent record. For a time he was his grandmother’s golden child, even skipped off to Columbia (in NYC, her hometown) after graduating from high school (and frolicking about Europe for two years) to enter into their auspicious business program just to please her.
• Business school didn’t last long, however. In New York, Julian was quickly seduced from the straitlaced student intent on making his family proud into the shameless artsy hipster, shedding the business suits for flannel shirts and facial hair and perpetual oil paint stains. He made it a single year, amassing enough basic business-related knowledge to fool his dear grandmother each time she phones to ask about how his degree is coming along—though she remains the only Donahue to date who seemingly doesn’t know about his complete change of heart and career path. Meanwhile, far enough away from his family and their legacy, Julian has enjoyed all sorts of personal freedoms once denied to him by a short leash and a necessary sense of paranoia. The only person whom he keeps around from his old life is Sydney, now his long-suffering roommate in a shared 2 bedroom flat—he could certainly afford better, like a fancy townhouse in Lenox Hill staffed with his own handful of servants, but that is so not how an artist should live. He slums it on purpose, ‘suffering’ in the name of his art, aside from a strict diet of Starbucks, a top of the line vespa scooter, and a nice little studio in SoHo.
• Presently, Julian attends the New York Academy of Art’s graduate program, specializing in modern art and mixed mediums. With his sister Lynette he shares a common interest in painting, though his artwork tends to skew into the lewd end of the spectrum—very rarely do his pieces not contain nudity or otherwise explicit content, unless they’re commissions or gifts and even then he might throw in a shrouded penis to meet his personal requirements. Said penis obsession is probably related to his sexuality, which he refuses to label unless pressed, and then he’s a proud bisexual. Sydney once set him up with a female dancer friend after he admitted to enjoying ‘the dancer aesthetic.’ It went disastrous. These days the setups are all male, and Julian certainly hasn’t complained the teensiest bit.

GAH I LOVE HIM.

And yasssssss. Mandy joined too!

(David Tennet will always be a charming psychopath to me now. Thanks, Jessica Jones.)

Your Gallagher Patriarch should be like ... Frank Gallagher IV or something.

Funny story I don't think I mentioned, there is so a "Frank Gallagher" branded whiskey in much the same regard as "Jim Beam" or "Jack Daniels." So his legacy lives on and on and on.
