Enigmatic Butler/Personal Assistant


Irishman and Father, with a mysterious past and good taste in fashion.


Born in 1910 to a nun and a 'priest' who was never actually in his life, Emery was born Eamon Mathias Pearce. World War 1 took place when he was a child, his mother would always tell him and the other orphans that the war they heard about was not the real war. But you can be crazy religious as a nun so they just nodded. Emery was…quite rebellious. Highly intelligent, filled with energy. He snuck out of the orphanage alot, ran with the rougher street kids quite a bit. Learning Greek and Latin and being trained for a priesthood, he was kicked out the choir for making fart noises…but he did spend alot of time reading old and dusty books…

In more Modern Years, he attended the Ivor Spencer International School for Butler Administrators, Personal Assistants. This has left him with helpful skills such as flower arrangement and how to greet people in 5 different languages. When he graduated with his lovely ability to match suits and ties and organize maids…he served as the butler to a Egyptian ambassador for several years, working at night and on 'vacation' times on less savory positions until he accidentally knocked his daughter up and 9 months later was FIRED and given custody of a child and paid money to keep it hush hush seeing as she was engaged to be married. - Oops. That's how he got his daughter, Kennis Amelia Grace and tried to clean up his act enough to keep her safe. He stopped going out after dark or away on quite 'missions' for the more elite, or taking those quiet jobs from Mr Grace. His Butler/Personal Assistant jobs were no longer covers for his 'destiny' fueled extracurriculars. Granted, as the only one of his kind left that fact that he has offspring has certain forces stirring again. That's how the bad men in black suits ended up trying to kidnap her and her Father before Emery fled the country with her to keep her safe. So they are in New York. He's looking for work after explaining/formally resigning from his previous position, apparently he got a better one. Which…he really hasn't gotten yet so he has to find one.

Character Details

Emery Papsworth can be charming and posh, cheekily subservient and sarcastically humble. Its in the Job Description to become whoever he has to be to best serve who he's working for. He hides his deep empathy and care for people behind being a smart ass, and he's been through alot of pain and loss throughout the years so he's reluctant to truly let people get close to him. Flirty and not afraid to speak his mind, his religious upbringing has done nothing to curb his worldly appetites and he's unapologetic about them.
