Lord Francis Wimsey
#37 - The English ambassador

Interpretato da: J. C.

Player's notes: Lord Wimsey has served as the British ambassador to the young but ascendant German Empire since 1885. Before that, he quickly rose through junior positions at the British embassies and legations in Paris, Beijing, Tokyo, and Cairo. He distinguished himself by his work on the Chefoo Convention in 1876, the invasion of Egypt in 1882, and the Berlin Conference 1884-1885 and was made Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath. Berlin is his first station as ambassador.


Motto: Lord of the realm, victim of desire
Group: High Society
Teaser: What a superb feeling to be a loyal subject of the British Empire! Being part of the greatest Empire ever seen on Earth gives a supreme calm, a wonderful emotional detachment, a profound pride. So seems Lord Francis, the first son of the Marquis of Wimsey, to the lucky people who have had the pleasure to meet him: an impeccable but genial gentleman blessed with a subtly mocking smirk. His brief but successful diplomatic career trained him well to show a detached countenance. His demeanour is an impeccable mirror of the gentleman's self-control. A Peer of England has nothing to show off and everything to demand. If only the eyes of his beholders could penetrate the bright armour shielding his heart, they would see a stormy sea wildly moved by desire, passion and remorse. They would see the giant waves of his ravenous hunger for life grow bigger and bigger then crash furiously against the fragile walls of reality. They would understand that Francis's true nature seeks relief in pleasure and oblivion in equal measure. Observing the wreckage lurking in the depths of his soul they would see the new threatening storm which could break at any moment.

Relations: He hired the lively and loyal maid Scarlett Owen. He knows Lord George Cadogan for political reasons. He has encountered the senator Costantino Nigra though sometimes not in a pleasant way. Despite their distant political and social ideas, he often meets with Emmeline Pankhurst. Lord Wimsey had a brief State meeting with Lord Evelyn Baring.
