- ✗ vain. rude. pessimistic.
NO MATTER WHAT WE BREED
If you haven’t heard of the Banks family, then chances are, you’re an out of towner. The Banks were one of the three founding families of Verity Lake, and certainly the ones with the most ambitions for what the town would become. 300 years later, and they still live in the town, as one of the wealthiest families there. Adam was, of course, breeded to be a fine heir, but instead grew up spoiled and vain by his own father, who coddled him like a little prince. The only person that saw his good side in the slightest was his younger sister, Imogen. But that changed when his father died, and they were left alone in the Banks mansion.
WE STILL ARE MADE OF GREED
Now the owner of the large Banks fortune and half the town’s factories and commercial industries, Adam was one of the wealthiest men in the city - and he chose to put it to use by squandering a quarter of it in a year on casinos and alcoholic drinks. But one day, a roaring fire began, and instead of bringing his sister or any of the servants to safety, he decided to selfishly save his own neck. But while most servants managed to escape, there were consequences for his actions.
THIS IS MY KINGDOM COME
In that fire on May 14th, 2017, Imogen Banks was killed, and Adam’s face was burned beyond recognition. He became a recluse when he saw his scarred face, disorted and twisted from its formerly handsome features and unable to be fixed by any amount of surgery, hiding himself most of the time in the newly rebuilt mansion, with the only people seeing his face being his butler David and his servant Benjamin. However, the few times he’s allowed to venture out of the mansion, he’s bumped into a young woman, Isabelle Malory, quite a bit. He’s not a believer in happily ever afters or anything of that sort, but it’s starting to wonder if it’s some twist of destiny.
