Sense of humor: Dry, often sarcastic and deadpan.
Character’s greatest joy in life: Seeing carefully laid plans and investments come to fruition.
Character’s greatest fear: Losing everything.
Why? All his left he has been told to protect and enlarge the family legacy. To lose it all would rend his life, his entire reason for existence, void.
What single event would most throw this character’s life into complete turmoil? Losing his holdings

Character is most at ease when: Sitting in his study with a double whiskey in his left hand and a cigarette in his left as he sits in his chair overlooking the city that never sleeps.
Most ill at ease when: Forced into a situation in which he hasn't prepared for or is unexpected. He hates being caught off guard and ignorant more then anything else.
Enraged when: He is outplayed.
Depressed or sad when: He thinks to much about his family or when not consuming his soul and mind with work.
Priorities: Expanding his families power and influence.
Life philosophy: “It is a law of nature that every decent man on earth is bound to be a coward and a slave”

Character’s soft spot: His nurse, mother and children.
Is this soft spot obvious to others? He tries to only show affection when in privacy, but if someone had enough resources or was close to him for a long period of time during such visits, they would likely notice.

Biggest regret: Letting Ellen down and doing nothing as she was executed.

Minor accomplishment: Expanding his personal influence into DC and founding the Arthur Orphanarium.

Does anyone else know? No. The only person who asked him was killed while attempting it, and he was absolved of all involvement.
Motivations: Honestly, deep down, he doesn't have a true motivation. Improving his family legacy is something he does, but he works constantly because it takes up his thoughts and doesn't allow his mind to wander.
Outlook: Pessimistic and Cynical.



Drives and motivations: Driven by the duty to his dead father and a desire for fulfillment.
Immediate goals: Expand the control and power of his company.
Long term goals: To survive said expansion and become the power in the shadows by slowly acquire more and more power. He does not want the limelight on himself or his company.
How the character plans to accomplish these goals: Make himself too useful to throw away, expand his companies influence, and help 'enemies of the state' so as to strength his hold by playing both sides. He is going to play very close to the chest.


Hometown: New York City
Childhood: The vast majority of his childhood was spent going to the best boarding schools and receiving education from the best tutors and instructors money could buy. He did not have a lot of 'family' time, and to this day, he and his sister are nothing more then strangers.
But his father and mother never failed to show up at every sporting event, debate meet and other social events. During those times, and rare family 'outings', his father never failed to express how important the legacy was. The Darnell legacy was all that mattered. Everything else was a distraction. Like most young boys, his only goal was to impress his father, and so he took it to heart.
Pets: Caspian has never had a pet.

First memory: Sitting on his fathers shoulders as he looked up at the numbers flying across the stock exchange holoscreens.
Most important childhood memory: Exploring the 'great wilderness' that was the back yard to his families summer home with Ellen. He had tripped and, much to his lasting embarrassment, had been crying. Ellen had sat with him and held him as he cried telling him she would be his hero and protect him from the world.
Why: It feeds his regret that sits in when he is not consumed with work.

Childhood hero: His father, Arthur.
Dream job: Being the CEO of his company.
Education: Masters in business.


Current location: New York City, 404 Park Avenue South
Currently living with: No one. While his personal 'home' is filled with people from maids to his private security force, they do not live there and take 'shifts'. The top layer of his personal 'home' (which is a newly built skyscraper) is off-limits to everyone besides himself and his personal assistant.
Pets: N/A
Religion: Catholic
Occupation: CEO of TRAStech Industries
Finances: Extremely wealthy, one of the richest men in Eastern United States



Habits: Taps his lips with his pointer finger when thinking, likes to pace when frustrated, covers his mouth when he chews and always steps left foot first.
Hobbies: Reading, writing, movies (when he finds the time), and eating at random restaurants and small diners. He doesn't give himself much time for more time extensive hobbies.

Opinion of other people in general: People are people. Some are useful, others are meant to be used and discarded.

Does the character hide his/her true opinions and emotions from others? No, not usually. He only hides his opinion and thoughts from people who are stronger then he, such as President Ryan, but normally he is very cut and dry with people. If he doesn't like someone, he makes little effort to hide it, but he always strives to be polite.

So begins...
