Bio:

Simon is the eldest child of wealthy parents, Alyosius and Emma Blakeney. They trace their lineage back centuries, and while they no longer have any land holdings, they have been successful in London’s financial district.

Simon has a younger sister, Sandine or Sandy, who is already a party girl in secondary/high school.

The family focuses on material success above all else, but it tolerates the occasional artist, politician, or mystic. However, Simon’s wastrel ways annoyed his parents (no doubt his goal). He can be quite arrogant and critical of those around him, attracting like-minded toffs in prep school.

However, Simon was actually lonely, and his disaffection disguised his discomfort with the purely material world. He wonders if he’ll ever be able to make his mark, do something of value, and feel the thrill of discovery. The invitation to Wolfstone Academy came as a surprise to Simon and a relief to his parents, but it remains to be seen how he’ll do….
