Lord Akeldama Character Study (Parasol Protectorate Special Extras)

Alexia looked uncomfortable. “I know!” She was wondering how a hive might react to a preternatural in their midst. Not very kindly, she suspected. She worried her lower lip. “I simply must speak with Lord Akeldama.” Miss Hisselpenny looked, if possible, even more worried. “Oh really, must you? He is so very outrageous.” ~ from Soulless

The ancient vampire sashayed forward to greet her, both arms extended, dressed in his version of the “casual gentleman at home.” For most men of means and taste, this meant a smoking jacket, opera scarf, long trousers, and soft-soled derbies. For Lord Akeldama, this meant that the jacket was of pristine white silk with black embroidered birds of some lean oriental persuasion splashed about, the scarf a bright peacock patterned teal, the trousers the latest in tight fitting black jacquard; and the shoes cut in a flashy wingtip style with a black and white spectator coloration that was held by many to be rather vulgar.
~ from Changeless

“My darling Chamomile Button!” he wrote. “I received your card, and given certain recent intelligence, it has occurred to me that you may be in ever-increasing need of accommodation but were far too polite to request it openly. Let me tender my most humble offer, to the only person in all of England currently thought more outrageous than myself. You would be welcome to share my unworthy domicile and hospitality, such as they are. Yours, et cetera, Lord Akeldama.”
~ from Blameless

Professor Lyall continued. “Lord Akeldama seemed the best solution.”
Lord Maccon wrinkled his nose at that and huffed derisively.
Professor Lyall, Lord Akeldama, and Lady Maccon all pretended not to hear.

Lord Akeldama likes to dress with Rococo Influence. His house is very lavish full of guided furniture, shepherdess carpets of Georgian style, and frescoed walls with cherubs engaging in salacious activities. I did a blog design board for his house.

Here is a collection of images that remind me of Lord Akeldama.

    Oh this is fabulous, I love that you included both Paul Bettany AND Prince Poppycock, which have both flown through my head when imagining Biffy and the dear Lord 🙂
    Keep up the good work, I think your stories are excellent!
