The Continental Cotillion Debutante Ball (PT, OOC Sign Up)

Postby Atlantian Dominions » Sun Mar 22, 2020 5:56 pm

Cotillion (n): A formal presentation of young ladies, debutantes, to "polite society.”

It is the year of our Lord 1874.

The Continental Cotillion is the most prestigious, the most exclusive, and the most expensive debutante ball in the Confederation of Atlantian Dominions. It is the event which marks the beginning of the social season in Atlantia. It is hosted every year at the Continental Hotel in Grand Harbor, a major port city in the Dominion of Delmarva, by the Atlantian Benevolent Society. It is the major fundraiser for the Society, which helps to fund relief efforts for the deserving poor and misfortunate.

The Cotillion is where the elite, rich, and powerful meet up and mingle and where their daughters are prepared to enter the world of high society and foster lifelong international friendship with each other. The presentation of debutantes at the Cotillion is also a way for young women of marriageable age to be presented to suitable bachelors and their families in the hopes of finding a suitable husband. Bachelors, in turn, can use the Cotillion as a chance to find a suitable wife.

Those who want to attend the Cotillion are required to apply for permission to do so; if the application is accepted, you will be sent an official invitation to attend the Cotillion.

To attend the Cotillion as a debutante, you must be a woman between the ages of 18 and 21. Debutantes who are usually accepted are "women of distinction" from well-connected families. Each debutante, or their family, is required to provide a donation of at least $250 to the Benevolent Society. Each debutante must be accompanied by an escort, either a male family member or an eligible young man of distinction.

Non-debutantes can apply to attend the Cotillion as well. These attendees can be eligible bachelors or simply members of elite looking to mingle with Atlantian high society. Attending the Cotillion as a guest requires making a donation of $100 to the Benevolent Society.

Attendees can arrive in Grand Harbor by ship, or they can arrive at a different port and travel overland by train to Grand Harbor. Debutantes and their escorts will be hosted in the Continental Hotel. Other attendees are responsible for their own accommodations. There are many other fine hotels in Grand Harbor, including the Waterview and the Barton Grand. Many Atlantians coming from elsewhere in the Dominions stay in the city homes or at the nearby country estates of their society friends who live in and around Grand Harbor.

The Cotillion has a strict dress code. Debutantes must wear a white evening dress (shades of ivory and pink are acceptable). Most debutantes wear pearls or family heirloom jewelry. Men attending the Cotillion must wear white tie evening dress, or a dress uniform if they are active members of the military.

Accepted! Anastasia won't be allowed to attend the Cotillion itself, but Atlantian debutantes and attendees are bringing maidservants as well so bringing one to the Continental Hotel is not unusual at all.

A point of clarification - is he attending as an official representative of the government? Because otherwise a common patrol officer is far below the class of people who get accepted to this event- this isn't a government function, it's a high society ball, so the guest list will be curated to weed out the "wrong sort" of people.

Yeah. The function of the police is akin to Governance in Quebec. I'll move him up the ranks if need be.

Understood. Bumping him up a few ranks wouldn't hurt, but no need to jump him too far up - something equivalent to a junior commissioned officer would be fine.

Background: Catriona is the youngest child of Sir Ceallach, the youngest 6 children and the only girl so she became the jewel of her mothers eye and received the most attention from her compared to her brothers. Since a young age she was given the best education that money could buy and has been insulated from the rest of the world, much to the chagrin of her father who believed in the need to see the brutal reality of life but his tender love for his wife and hidden happiness at the innocence of his daughter halted any plans to expose her to such. Only being among the upper class she knows there is more to the outside world but also knows she probably will never see it. An excellent student she prefers the company of books and music over that of people though she will always be the proper lady, now with her studies concluded though her father has bringing her to multiple balls and the like so that she could have the possibility to choose her love, that is if they can survive the gaze of Ceallach the Iron Lion.

Age: 56
Appearance (Image or Description):

Background: Ceallach was always a man of drive and strength, even from a young age he would never let up until he was victorious even if it meant substantial injury to himself. Hard headed, passionate, and driven his father sent him away to study at Naofa Oilean, the island of monasteries, so that he could learn to control himself and his passions. At first the young lad resented his father for it but eventually with the wisdom of the monks to guide him he understood and has been able to control his outbursts and the merit of thinking before acting finally got through to him. Leaving Naofa Oilean he returned home for a year reconciled with his family before joining the Colonial Expeditionary Marines, distinguishing himself so much that he swiftly rose through the ranks and became the Military Governor of Talameab. With a family now he has tempered even more, both with the responsibility of governing a colonial justly and with raising a family, his name is highly spoken of in Camelone and he is seen as an excellent example of a colonial governor. Now he is worried for his only daughter's marriage prospects, organizing a tour of balls and the like to get his sheltered little girl used to the rest of the world so she can make a good choice of a husband.
Occupation (if applicable): Military Governor of Talameab, one of the Camelonean colonies in Africa, and patriarch of one of the prominent knightly houses of the Free Knights of the Watch.

Name of Attendee: Maon Ui-Aogan
Nation of Origin: High Kingdom of Camelone
Age: 22
Appearance (Image or Description):
Image

Background: Maon is the youngest son of Ceallach, a well groomed and polite gentleman since birth there were no true problems with Maon except for his insistent stubbornness and combativeness if he thought someone was being slighted. Inheriting his sense of justice and chivalry from his parents, and inspired by the tales of his fathers bravery Maon joined the cadets and eventually the officer corp of the Colonial Expeditionary Marine's like his eldest brother and father. Serving with distinction and rallying a detachment of marine's to victory when their leader was killed repelling an attack, outnumbered and outgunned they held their position until they were relieved, he rose to the rank of Leftenant continuing to serve with distinction until his father called him home to aid him in escorting his sister on her debutante tour due to the close relationship he and Catriona have.

Name of Attendee: Solas Ui-Colla
Nation of Origin: High Kingdom of Camelone
Age: 21
Appearance (Image or Description):
Image

Background: Solas was not born to the nobility, instead he was born to a clan of farmers who weren't poor per say but they sure weren't wealthy landowners. He had a wanderlust in his soul from a young age and soon after completing his studies in the chantry at the age of 15 he left home quietly in the night and made his way to the coast, enlisting into the Colonial Expeditionary Marine's soon after a he realized that life on the road wasn't all that it was cut out to be. Serving well enough he had some disciplinary issues but beyond that he has been a good Marine and fought alongside Moan in the engagement which would earn the young knight fame. During that battle Solas was about to desert until Maon rallied everyone together to hold the line and fighting bitterly for this man, saving his life in the process, he swore personal fealty to Maon and become his batman. There is still a rather stark juxtaposition between the personalities between the two men but Solas follows Maon, checking his idealistic nature with bitter realism.
Occupation (if applicable): Batman of Maon, and a Colonial Expeditionary Marine Corporal
Reason for Attending: He is at Maon's service by an oath of loyalty and by personal loyalty.

Serving with distinction and rallying a detachment of marine's to victory when their leader was killed repelling an attack, outnumbered and outgunned they held their position until they were relieved, he rose to the rank of Leftenant continuing to serve with distinction until his father called him home to aid him in escorting his sister on her debutante tour due to the close relationship he and Catriona have.

Name of Attendee: Solas Ui-Colla
Nation of Origin: High Kingdom of Camelone
Age: 21
Appearance (Image or Description):
Background: Solas was not born to the nobility, instead he was born to a clan of farmers who weren't poor per say but they sure weren't wealthy landowners. He had a wanderlust in his soul from a young age and soon after completing his studies in the chantry at the age of 15 he left home quietly in the night and made his way to the coast, enlisting into the Colonial Expeditionary Marine's soon after a he realized that life on the road wasn't all that it was cut out to be. Serving well enough he had some disciplinary issues but beyond that he has been a good Marine and fought alongside Moan in the engagement which would earn the young knight fame. During that battle Solas was about to desert until Maon rallied everyone together to hold the line and fighting bitterly for this man, saving his life in the process, he swore personal fealty to Maon and become his batman. There is still a rather stark juxtaposition between the personalities between the two men but Solas follows Maon, checking his idealistic nature with bitter realism.
Occupation (if applicable): Batman of Maon, and a Colonial Expeditionary Marine Corporal
Reason for Attending: He is at Maon's service by an oath of loyalty and by personal loyalty.

Age: 18
Appearance (Image or Description):
Background: Catriona is the youngest child of Sir Ceallach, the youngest 6 children and the only girl so she became the jewel of her mothers eye and received the most attention from her compared to her brothers. Since a young age she was given the best education that money could buy and has been insulated from the rest of the world, much to the chagrin of her father who believed in the need to see the brutal reality of life but his tender love for his wife and hidden happiness at the innocence of his daughter halted any plans to expose her to such. Only being among the upper class she knows there is more to the outside world but also knows she probably will never see it. An excellent student she prefers the company of books and music over that of people though she will always be the proper lady, now with her studies concluded though her father has bringing her to multiple balls and the like so that she could have the possibility to choose her love, that is if they can survive the gaze of Ceallach the Iron Lion.

At first the young lad resented his father for it but eventually with the wisdom of the monks to guide him he understood and has been able to control his outbursts and the merit of thinking before acting finally got through to him. Leaving Naofa Oilean he returned home for a year reconciled with his family before joining the Colonial Expeditionary Marines, distinguishing himself so much that he swiftly rose through the ranks and became the Military Governor of Talameab. With a family now he has tempered even more, both with the responsibility of governing a colonial justly and with raising a family, his name is highly spoken of in Camelone and he is seen as an excellent example of a colonial governor. Now he is worried for his only daughter's marriage prospects, organizing a tour of balls and the like to get his sheltered little girl used to the rest of the world so she can make a good choice of a husband.

If this is a real RP (rare) this nation is nought more than a microstate of "crazy" cultists living on Mt. Olympus in Thessaly in Greece. Any weird happenings are purely explainable through reason and science, and those conclusions are up to the OP in question.
There are no NS stats for this nation, as it is only the deities of Olympus and their retinues...and those change a lot.

I'm also curious about the caste/slavery-esque system and racial discrimination. Will any of that come into play?

Name of Debutante: Princess Nerea of the House of Zuvionda
Nation of Origin: Voxija
Age: 18
Appearance (Image or Description):
Image
Extra description: Princess Nerea is a Voxijan, meaning an almost even mix of Hispanic (Basque) and South Sea Islander (Viñak), making her very much, in modern terminology, a person of color. However, being a princess makes Nerea accepted in even racist countries. Quick edit: Princess Nerea is also Catholic, although Voxija contains two faiths (Roman Catholicism and the indigenous religion).

Background: Nerea is the first-born daughter of the king of Voxija's brother. She isn't being raised for the throne, but a cotillion would be good for diplomacy. The Voxijan royal family is more egalitarian than most, which is probably due to the fact that Voxija is on an island away from most civilization. She was raised with everything she wanted, and became a bit spoiled. However, Princess Nerea grew out of it, and now she is a fine young lady.
She becomes Queen anyway, in fact the last monarch of Voxija.

Occupation (if applicable): n/a

Name of Escort: Eneko Ydaverri, Duke of Xirroni

Background: The Dukes of Xirroni were always good friends with the Zuvionda dynasty, ever since Obidio Ydaverri helped the first Zuvionda king overthrow the evil King Edrigu V. However, as Voxija crept into modernity, the nobility of Voxija weakened in power, and now they only have titles. Thus, Eneko Ydaverri has had to go to law school and become a lawyer. Eneko personally is a great friend of Princess Nerea's father, and the only man he'd trust with his daughter.

Debutantes must be between 18 and 21. If changing age is an issue for canon, she can still attend the Cotillion but as a guest as opposed to a debutante.

I would say that Atlantians are slightly less prejudiced against Catholics specifically than RL 19th century Americans, but only because they're generally disposed and taught to dismiss any Christians not following the Dominion Church as sadly ignorant. Catholics are permitted to practice in the Confederation, provided it's with a Registered Church, but an openly professed Catholic would encounter many social barriers to entry into the elite of Atlantian society. Catholicism in the world of the Atlantian Dominions is associated with Maldonia, where a Pope resides in a position of de facto if not de jure subordination to the King, His Most Catholic Majesty.

The system of Indenture is where most of the Atlantians at the Cotillion derive their wealth, since the majority of the labor on farms and in factories is provided by Indentured people. So while it won't be very on display at the Cotillion (the Continental, as a sign of wealth and luxury, hires paid staff from the lower rungs of the Leasing class) it will come up in conversation, especially since Indentured laborers are currently rebelling in the south of the country.

As far as race goes, wealth and status will insulate people of color personally from disrespect but they may encounter expressions of casual racism from Atlantian characters in conversation.

Name of Debutante: Cytherea Anadyomene
Nation of Origin: Cyprus, Ottoman Empire
Age: 20
Appearance (Image or Description):
Image

Background: Born a peasant girl in Cyprus, Cytherea grew up during the beginning of the end of the Ottoman Empire. The sick man of Europe had been loosening its control of the various Greek Islands that surrounded the Anatolian peninsula. She struggled and did what she could to survive, acting as a healer, maid and fortuneteller in Limassol in her teens before catching the attention of a noble lady visiting during a tour of the east. The woman, after having had her fortune read, became fast friends with Cytherea, and brought her back to England as a permanent fixture of her house and retinue. In the few years following, Cytherea became known as a socialite of her own renown, a notorious gossip and the successful matchmaker of not more than five separate noble marriages. None of whom have been beset by marital discord, yet she herself has never indicated she wanted a marriage. As of 1874, the lady of whom granted Cytherea a new world and new chance has succumbed to the ravages of tuberculosis, and left her great fortune to Cytherea.
Occupation (if applicable): Socialite, Lady of Court, Gossiper, and Matchmaker.

Name of Escort: Enyalios Miaephonos
Nation of Origin: Aetolia, The Kingdom of Greece and London, The British Empire.
Age: 25
Appearance (Image or Description):
Image

Background: Originally born in Thrace, Enyo (as he likes to be called by friends)'s family escaped the Ottoman empire to Greece in 1855, during the Crimean War. The family did not flourish there, and in 1860 they again fled the kingdom and went to London at the heart of the British Empire. Enyo grew up as a hardened youth in the streets of London, joining several rabble rousing gangs and participating in underground boxing during his adolescent years. With some growing fame as a rake from these endeavours, Enyo found himself as a hanger on at parties as hired muscle for aristocrats and rich men. In this time Cytherea caught his eye, and he courted her for months, but found himself rejected at least that's what everyone was told. Enyo also enlisted in the British Army some time ago, and has recently returned from the Third Ashanti War. He loves to regale people with tales of the combat in which he served, and is and always was a close companion to Cytherea, and is rarely seen not in her orbit.
Occupation (if applicable): Soldier, Boxer, Hired Muscle.

If this is a real RP (rare) this nation is nought more than a microstate of "crazy" cultists living on Mt. Olympus in Thessaly in Greece. Any weird happenings are purely explainable through reason and science, and those conclusions are up to the OP in question.
There are no NS stats for this nation, as it is only the deities of Olympus and their retinues...and those change a lot.
