Description: Rather average in size, Ethan has a lean frame that barely fills out his clothing. His ruffled blond locks are closely cropped so they don't get too unruly. His pale blue eyes flash with intelligence, and sometimes are set behind a pair of spectacles when he's doing research. His clothing tends to be more functional than fashionable. There is an energy about him when he talks about subjects that interest him.
Personality: Passion with purpose, this intense young man vibrates with energy when he's talking about a subject he loves. When one tries to engage on something that bores him, he impatiently cuts them off. He doesn't like to have his time wasted unless it's a client and he's on the clock. Ambitious, he's not above pushing his own agenda when it suits him. Loyalty is bought and paid for by the contract.
Background: Ethan was an orphan who grew up in a children's home. He has no memory of his parents, and his surname was something he chose himself when he got older. Hunger, it's been his companion through life. He knows what it's like to be on the bottom, scrapping with castoffs that no one else wanted. He knew at a young age that he was going to get out of the Lowers, by any means necessary.
He fell into a gang of pickpockets, got himself in trouble with the Iron Guard. Luckily, the guard recognized the boy's actions were more out of desperation than criminal intent. He got the boy transferred to a better group home. Then he started checking in on the boy, making sure he had clothes and got him enrolled in school. Ethan, not being a fool, saw his lessons as an opportunity. He applied himself vigorously to his studies.
He got into a university on scholarship. Applied himself fiercely even as he worked at the Courts running messengers. When he graduated, he got a job as a clerk and continued to work hard. Recently, he got a chance to meet a young lady, Baroness Skye Blackshore, through processing some of her paperwork. After a few conversations, he convinced her to take him on as a lawyer. It's his first big shot at serving a family and he intends like all this other stepping stones, to use this wisely.
