EVE


the royal court
the royal court. notable members of high wonderland society, such as the king and queen themselves and their advisers, and the duchess and her household. these are the people who reside in, or have all-season passes to the palace. essentially, these are the 'a-list celebrities' of wonderland.

formerly the knave of hearts, after a successful revolution jack finds himself the king. newly crowned and married to his childhood fiancée, time will tell if he rises to the occasion or buckles under the weight of his crown.
betrothed to jack when they were both mere children, rhiannon always knew she'd be queen. though the revolution put a bit of a strain on things, she got there in the end and, recently wedded and crowned- she's got big shoes to fill.
currently mia after the revolution; nobody quite knows where the mercurial monarch has got to, though it's rumoured she went into hiding with her husband.
after being poisoned during the final battle of the revolution, lysander and his wife are rumoured to have gone into hiding. whether or not this is true, nobody knows... all anyone knows is that they're simply not around anymore.

## | the cook | face claim | available

though the second to swear fealty to the queen, the white knight embodies the stereotype; noble, charming and quick to save a damsel in distress. his ego is perhaps a little large though, especially after learning what a 'white knight' is in the human world, and the significance of that title.
the red knight is the first to have sworn his allegiance to the queen, and chose his colour to appease her. his loyalties are firm, though he's grown a little lax in morals lately, or so the rumours say. he's quite sick of the white knight's boasting, really...
the duchess is more than pleased with her new form and figure- she's beautiful again as she was in her youth, and her taste for riches and flamboyance rivals only that of the queen, and possibly the dodo. she's one of the queen's more affluent rivals, and has the patronage and affections of the cheshire cat, being his former mistress. temperamental though more likely to bark than bite, the duchess is indeed a formidable woman. a femme fatale, in every sense of the word.
the cook still works for the duchess, though isn't too sure what she thinks about all this fancy club business in london. she's taken a few courses in london cooking, though, and her meals are far easier to digest now- though of course, she's still a little too enamoured with pepper, and serves it liberally if she thinks she can get away with it. just don't dare sneeze, or she might beat you with a rolling pin for your disrespect.


the notable figures
the household names of wonderland, what we might call the 'b-list celebrities' of wonderland. they range from the pragmatic white rabbit to the mysterious and chaotic cheshire cat. they could be considered those who dealt with the original alice more exclusively than others, and they're quite well known throughout wonderland.

29 | mad hatter | reserved | ace

singer
ruby march

25 | march hare | ksenia solo | fini

he chose his new name aptly, as if one were to ever be considered a true danger to wonderland's monarchy it would be the cheshire cat. after the death of alice he fell into darkness, mourning her perhaps most of all- it's rumoured that he keeps trinkets of hers locked away in his shadowy mansion in tulgey wood. he is above all, unpredictable, cruelty and humour mingled into one man. his motives and allegiance are unknown, but he primarily consorts with the former monsters of the tulgey.
considered by most to be the sanest of wonderland's inhabitants, it has fallen to the white rabbit to seek out potential alices and bring them to the cheshire cat. he is impeccable in his timing and always on schedule. it's a wonder he hasn't lost his hair, though, having to deal with the insanity of his companions.
the hatter is entirely out of his depth with the changes to wonderland. his tea parties are not as frequent as he would like and the company even less so. while he's got quite a successful coffee hop business starting up in london, it just isn't the same- and he can often be found lingering around his old haunt in wonderland.
the hatter's companion and arguably, just as mad as he is. the hare has stuck by their hatter since coming to london, though they've not spent quite as much time together as they used to, they are good friends.

## | tweedle dum | face claim| available

the dormouse did quite well with the surprise of becoming a human, though she was probably half asleep when it happened. she retained the ability to turn into a mouse, and has quite a nasty case of narcolepsy- it's hard to keep up a conversation with them without her falling asleep. she also has a remarkable calming effect on those around her.
usually found within his shop in london, the caterpillar is the one that you see when you want something a little different. with an extremely high tolerance of most human drugs, the caterpillar has been able to test for the best quality, the most potent of substances, and can always be trusted to give you what you want; you want to feel like you're floating on warm air? see the caterpillar. you want to knock yourself out for a while? see the caterpillar. he has just about everything! except a mushroom to make you physically shrink and grow, for that- you want judas.
tweedle dee is quite content with being considered the more intelligent of the pair, and often announces that he is the eldest, too, though neither have proof to either prove or dispute this claim. he is almost constantly seen with his brother, taking delight in games and riddles, and the occasional battle- taken with utmost sincerity, of course!
tweedle dum is often considered to be the less intelligent of the pair, though he hardly thinks this fair at all, knowing it's because of his name. he and his brother are very rarely seen apart, and love nothing more than games and riddles- and the occasional battle, which they take very seriously indeed.


the known figures
not as prestigious as the royal court, and not as well known as the notable figures, these are the characters mentioned in lewis carroll's famous book, and thus were known to alice. important figures in wonderland's social circles, they are names you need to know... but the consequences of not aren't quite so severe.

32 | the baby/pig | michael fassbender | alice

a monster, the thing that the children of wonderland and, much later, the children of england were told about to keep them behaving. the thing everybody feared. now bound to the form of a human, they are no less vicious, although has struck an allegiance with the cheshire cat. still very much a monster, despite deceiving appearances. rumour has it that the jabberwocky will occasionally do work for the queen, providing it involves causing pain or terror, of course...
he thought his life was over when he developed some inkling of compassion, thanks to alice's kindness- and then he was made human. of course, he still has that aggression and his reputation, but deep down he fears everyone knows he's not quite the same; he's apparently easier to approach, much to his displeasure. however, like the jabberwocky, he's still more than happy to hunt the occasional, unfortunate human. sadly, he has to balance it out with keeping the queen happy, and proving his loyalties through menial tasks.
the jubjub bird is the last of her kind, and quite irritated over that fact. self preservation is in her blood, and she's quick to turn to violence if she feels threatened; after all, her kind were almost hunted to extinction. while not as terrifying as the jabberwocky, caclulating as the cheshire cat or as strong as the bandersnatch... the jubjub bird is still a monster of legend, and one to be feared.
it's a little awkward, going from baby to pig in just a few moments- but generally, he doesn't talk about that. after all, he's human again now, just a good few years too late. the only characteristic of a pig he kept, thankfully, is the appetite- but he's not too keen on meeting up with the duchess again. honestly? he's just very, very confused about a great deal of this, and still doesn't know why he became a pig, of all things.

last

## | carpenter | face claim| available

last

## | walrus | face claim| available

the dodo has a brilliant mind, but tempers it with sheer laziness. he's always coming up with ideas for new inventions, but the labour to construct them falls on the shoulders of whatever unfortunate he manages to bully into it. on the side he's a fashion expert, wearing only the most expensive suits. he's generous, at least- and need only be asked to shower others in expensive gifts and garments; a little flattery will get you a long way with this one. currently MIA along with the king and queen of hearts.
a helpful soul with surprising strength- what bill lacks in intelligence and common sense he makes up for with a wonderful personality and a willingness to help in any situation. the dodo quite often takes advantage of his good nature, but bill doesn't seem to mind. he's a gentle soul, and always willing to aid his friends.
the carpenter, like bill, is a well meaning yet somewhat gullible individual. he falls for the walrus' promises every time, even if the man ate all the oysters and left none for his hard working companion. the carpenter, too, possesses surprising strength- but unlike the lizard, has a temper than surfaces quickly and dissipates just as quickly; usually when he's heard an apology.
above all- the walrus is conniving and lazy. he seems to care a great deal for the carpenter, but whether or not this is a manipulation is unclear- for he is above all, selfish. he likes to think himself of a noble class, but considering his clothing is usually less than pristine, this is clearly not the case. skilled at convincing others to do his bidding, though usually only the weak willed will comply- he's not exactly one of wonderland's best beloved citizens.

## | mock turtle | face claim| available

at first- the gryphon refused to believe that london even existed; but once he was convinced to make the journey through the looking glass, he found he liked what he saw. while he doesn't yet have a real job he gets by with fixing computer systems for people, and enjoys the finer things in life. he loves a good puzzle, too, and music- he just wishes the mock turtle would take time to enjoy life with him a little more.
the mock turtle has always been quite the melancholic soul, and this has translated over to his new form, too. he almost always expects the worst and isn't too sociable, though he's stayed close by the gryphon- a loyal companion to the end. still has a good singing voice, too.


the flower garden
like a well known band or a group of models, everyone who's anyone knows who the flowers are. headed by the benevolent red rose, and sporting the token boy (the dandelion, also their token weed)- the flowers have upped roots and some have gone a little awol. still, they're a well-known fixture of wonderland, and almost every wonderlander has visited their garden at some point.

## | daisy | face claim | available

the red rose has always been the mother of the group. indeed, it's what she thinks she was created for- looking after the others. as such, even when gifted with a human body, she still lives her life for her siblings, and doesn't often pause to think what she might want. her part in the jabberwocky's capture is bound to catch up with her.
back in wonderland, the white rose always looked up to the red rose, given that the latter has always been a mother to the group. nowadays, based in london, the white rose now knows the taste of freedom but she’s not even remotely ready for it.
one of the happiest flowers is without a doubt the daffodil. when spring comes around she is in her absolute element, and was always laughing and joking around with the others. one of the most welcoming, she was initially thrilled to bits when alice came in amongst them but upon realising she was a weed, was quick to start "playfully" bullying her for the amusement of her siblings. now and again she needs a reminder from one of the others, usually the red rose or the white rose to calm down a little as she has a tendency to go overboard or get too excited. since becoming human, she's known for throwing parties on a whim.

suggested face: holliday grai

the daisy was always close to the white rose, and this hasn't changed since they became humans. one of the more fun loving flowers, she was as eager to explore london as the white rose, and it was nadine who introduced her to the world of night clubs and men. though she still frequently returns to wonderland to keep in touch with her roots (pun totally intended), she is definitely allured by the siren call of london nightlife.

## | pansy | face claim| available

when the dandelion first came to the garden, the flowers were (understandably) a little uncertain of him. after all, he was a weed, and weeds did not rightfully belong in the flower garden. however, he managed to attract the attention of the tigerlily, and it was her affection for him that allowed him to stay. after a while, he became part of the family and is affectionately referred to by all as their brother.
having worked for the ex-queen, the larkspur's position in wonderland is delicate. smuggled to london by the cheshire cat after the revolution, the larkspur has taken root firmly in the human city. after all, the very last thing she wants is for the new king to find out she'd been ordered to assassinate him... even if living in london does mean she ages faster than her siblings.
the lily is often used as a funeral flower, and it couldn't be more apt. the lily was never a particularly cheerful soul, perhaps even rivalling the mock turtle with her melancholy at times. she was always a worrier, and the red rose frequently tried to reassure her to no avail. that wasn't to say she didn't have her cheerful moments, but she was frequently prone to anxiety and weeping. when alice came, she was one of the first to reject her presence, worrying about the influence she might have on the younger flowers. yet when she heard of alice's death, she mourned for weeks. one of the more emotional flowers, she often finds herself teased by tigerlily.

suggested face: sophie turner

the youngest flower in the garden and thus the main subject of the red rose's worry and mothering, the pansy is the baby of the group. fun loving and excitable, she is perhaps the polar opposite to the lily and frequently tries (in vain, most of the time) to cheer her up. she finds herself looking up to some of the more adventurous flowers such as the larkspur (though does not know of her sisters shadier deeds), the white rose, the daisy and the tigerlily and wishes that she could be like them.

## | violet | face claim| available

the tiger lily was always one of the more boisterous flowers: she knew what she wanted and often got it, and was always asking those who passed through the garden for stories about gallant knights and ferocious monsters. beneath her fierce nature lay a romantic soul, however, and when she saw the dandelion she fell in love instantly. it was her affection for him that compelled the red rose to allow him to stay.
the tulip has always been close to the violet, and thus it's no real surprise that she's joined her sister in her fashion venture. highly creative, she came up with the design for the front of the store and is hoping to get a website set up for them (potential plotting with the larkspur and her computer know-how). having had a voice almost as good as the red rose and the white rose, the tulip also moonlights at a few cafes and bars some nights to sing. she misses life as a flower (as does the white rose), but appreciates the opportunities and freedom that humanity and london afford her.

suggested face: nathalie emm

the violet was always interested in the flowing gowns of the ladies who visited the garden, and as such it came as no real surprise to anyone that she embraced fashion wholeheartedly when granted a human body. she was already prone to dressing up her sisters and the poor dandelion and this only got worse when london became available to her. roping the tulip along with her, the two of them managed to get some starter money from the cheshire cat, and opened up a clothes store of their very own. the two of them sketch up designs mixing wonderland fashion with that of london, and in the past four years it's become very popular. she still comes back to wonderland frequently though, to retain her youth.
