Clue: Murder at Tudor Mansion - Case File

Post by Jonathan Green » Tue Jun 04, 2019 4:19 pm

This is where I'll be posting all of my character bios for now.
Since I had to delete Tumblr, I decided that this is where I should post the here, because why not.

If you remember my “Daily Echo” story, you know that Boddy’s murder took place on June 12th, 2026

EDIT:
I'll also be posting information about the Tudor Mansion Case, like the weapons, details about the mansion, etc.

Mrs. Blanche White (née Chalkley)
Age: 28
Date of Birth: 1st November, 1998
Place of Birth: Edinburgh, Scotland
Nationality: Scottish
Height: 5' 8" (172.72 cm)
Weight: 126 lbs (57 kg)
Eye Color: Light Blue
Hair Color: Blonde

Born Blanche Chalkley, she grew up in a small farmland in a small village with three other siblings. Her grandmother owned a small bakery on the off-skirts of the village. Blanche’s lifetime dream was to start her own bakery. After her grandmother’s death, 16-year-old Blanche moved to England to find work to start her dream.

Blanche began working as a housekeeper and cook for the Neston family. A few months later, the estate was caught on fire and the family blamed Blanche for it. However, upon further investigation, there was no proof that she did it, so she was let scott-free.

After that incident, she moved to Hampshire and was hired by Mrs. Peacock to be her housekeeper, cook, and tutor to her daughter Josephine Scarlett. Sometimes, on special occasions, she’ll cook at Tudor Mansion. While working for the Peacock’s, Blanche met her first love, Winslow White. Winslow was Sir Hugh’s chauffeur when he came to Arlington Hall to visit. In 2019, Blanche and Winslow were married. To secure a future for both of them, Winslow joined the army. Unfortunately Winslow never returned home to his wife, for he was shot while in service in Central Africa in 2021. Blanche kept his name in remembrance of him.

Living alone, Mrs. White tried dating a respected member of the village, but quickly broke things off after she found out he was cheating on her. However, shortly after, White did gain the attention of another man, the nephew of her late husband’s employer John Boddy. Boddy has always been smitten by Blanche ever since they met in Arlington Hall, but never push on because she was seeing Winslow at the time, yet that still remained very good friends. John and Blanche have been dating for a while, then around Christmas of 2023 Boddy proposed to White to be his wife. White accepted. The happy couple would have been married around Christmas 2026, after Boddy gained his full inheritance from his uncle. White took the role as “mother” to Boddy’s two girls, Madeline Orchid and Georgia Peach.

However, rumors began to reach Boddy about White being a thief. When working in Arlington Hall, White had been put in charge of the household accounts. Rumor has it that she was skimming some of the money. White though she could pay the money once the bakery started earning money. It was only a little, no one would notice, right? Mr. Boddy though all these rumors were hogwash. Maybe Boddy told White these rumors, and she thought he was on to her?

Name: Reverend Clement Green
Date of Birth: August 12th, 1971
Place of Birth: Stanton St. Bernard, England
Age: 55
Nationality: English
Height: 5' 8"/172.72 cm
Weight: 220 lbs/99.7903 kg
Eye color: Brown
Hair color: White (formerly Brown)

An austere man, who came to Little Falls two years ago. Very little is know is known about Clement Green’s past, but one thing is certain. He seems to have many of them! In fact, he has told a different story to almost everyone he knows.

According to some accounts, he was raised by poor tenant farmers on a rundown farm in Stanton St. Bernard. His father was jailed for stealing money from the collection plate at the local house of worship. To makes ends meet, his mother took in laundry and told fortunes at a seedy hotel. Young Clement was a likable sort and was able to “charm the birds right out of the trees.” At age 12, he took his gift of gab and began preaching on the revival circuit. He later took to calling himself “Reverend Green”.

The vicar, according to some rumors, has reportedly spreading his own version of “stealing from the rich, and giving to the poor.” For a time, he operated a traveling “tent revival” and encouraged his audiences to donate money to help others less fortunate (like him). Over the past decade, Green has been questioned by police on numerous occasions. Allegations include everything from racketeering to bribery and fraud - not to mention smuggling and money laundering. Although authorities have never been able to prove anything, they suspect Green may be an international swindler of sizable proportions.

The Reverend moved to Little Falls after the original pastor passed away, and who was highly recommended by one of the vicar’s biggest parishioners, Mrs. Peacock. Last summer the Reverend tried to collect “donations” for a new church wing, and one of his biggest funders was Mr. John Boddy. Mr. Boddy was a charitable man, so when Rev. Green came knocking on his door, Boddy gave him a hefty sum of money for the cause. But then the Reverend came back asking for again, and again, and again. Boddy became suspicious of Green, and decided to dig up some dirt on him. Mr. Boddy discovered that this so-called “Reverend” and his uncle Sir Hugh were in cahoots with each other as “business” partners.

The vicar had never been fond of parties, he accepted Mr. Boddy’s invitation because he knew that his old friend Mrs. Blanche White (Boddy’s fiancee & former maid for Mrs. Peacock) would be there. Boddy planned to confronted the “Reverend” about his alleged crimes. Did Reverend Green break the sixth commandment to protect his reputation?

Mrs. Elizabeth Peacock (née Gobelin)
Date of Birth: January 5th, 1978
Place of Birth: Capri, Italy
Age: 48
Nationality: English
Height: 5’ 7” (170.18 cm)
Weight: 142 lbs (64.4101 kg)
Eye color: Blue
Hair color: Ginger

A frequent guest of Tudor Mansion, Elizabeth Peacock (née Gobelin) is a wealthy, well-connected socialite and amateur ornithologist. Born to an Italian/French father and an English mother, the young Elizabeth Gobelin first came to London in 1990 at the age of 12. She was accompanied by her mother, as her father had met an unfortunate end while climbing in the Pyrenees. Miss Gobelin attended all the best schools and became one of London’s most sought after debutante.

During the aristocrat’s youth, she dabbled in the theater and hoped for a career on the stage. Her involvement in a messy romantic triangle with two opposing political figures forced her to leave England. Fleeing to America in 1999, she became fodder for the newspaper, reporting on her alleged affair with a married businessman who was shot by his wife after the affair was exposed.

While in the United States, she met and befriended Brooklyn (Black) Boddy, the sister of Sir Hugh. Upon Elizabeth’s return to England in 2000, she was introduced to Sir Hugh Black. The two were rumored to briefly involved. But within weeks, Elizabeth met and married her first husband, James Scarlett. Mr. Scarlett was a dashing young man who fell head over heels in love with his young damsel. Eight months later, their beautiful daughter Josephine was born. Regrettably, James died in 2003, after stumbling down the stairs at their country house.

Since that time, Elizabeth married two more times. First to Ernest Zaffer in 2008, who died a year later after falling from a hotel balcony in Italy. Her last husband was Sir Matthew Peacock, a prominent London Barrister. Again misfortune followed, as Sir Matthew fell overboard and drowned while sailing in the Lake District.

Of course, with any sudden death of a spouse, theories began circulating about really happened to them. Even theories that she killed Sir High, since she was the last person to see him alive before he drowned, and his wife Rose back in 2009. Now Elizabeth lives in her last husband’s once sizable estate, Arlington Hall, which is nearly exhausted due to her lavish lifestyle. Recently, her god-son John Boddy (Brooklyn’s son) has started to become suspicious of her. Did Boddy find proof that she did them all in, and he became Peacock’s latest victim?

Sir Hugh Black
Age: 50
Date of Birth: 24th April, 1964
Place of Birth: Hampshire, England
Nationality: English
Height: 6’ 2”
Weight: 210 lbs
Eye Color: Blue
Hair Color: Gray (Formerly Dark Brown)

The late Sir Hugh Black was the former owner of the Blackwell Estate. He was the uncle of John Thomas Boddy, the future heir of the estate. His sister Brooklyn Black was John’s mother. Hugh and Brooklyn were lonely children. They grew up within the shadowy confines of the family estate - Tudor Mansion. Raised by nannies and educated by private tutors, they had little chance to experience the joys of childhood. Only rarely, did they get the opportunity to play with other children. In fact, young Black’s only joy in life was swimming laps in the family’s luxurious outside pool. It was there that Sir Hugh spent many hours fantasizing about a future where he would be in control of everything.

Sir Hugh’s mother and father spent considerable time bickering with each other. Both children plotted and schemed for the meager attention doled out by their parents, yet neither was very successful. Over time. Hugh and Brooklyn grew up to resent each other as much as they resented their dour lives. Sir Hugh’s parents divorced when was 22 years old. His mother left England quite suddenly, never to be heard from again. Several years later, Sir Hugh accompanied his father on a hunting trip to Africa. It was there that Hugh’s father died mysteriously while on safari. Hugh and his sister found little to bring them joy in their inherited estate.

Brooklyn, in 1992, finally married an American named Samuel Boddy. Shortly thereafter, the newlyweds went to live in the United States. Brooklyn was only too glad to be away from her domineering, grumpy brother. Brooklyn’s husband was raised in an orphanage. He had worked his way through college and became a popular correspondent for a leading Boston Newspaper. Samuel had also written moderately successful books.

Back in England, Sir Hugh married Rose Ravenwood in 1995. A year later, they had a daughter, Heather Black. Hugh had no real friends, only business acquaintances. Many owed him considerable sums of money, loaned to them at high interest rates. Sir Hugh’s harsh, self-serving business practices and underhanded methods earned him considerable cash and numerous enemies.

In 2006, his sister and her husband disappeared without a trace while traveling in New York. Their two children, John and Dorothy, had no other family, so he came to live with Sir Hugh. But Black hadn’t have the time to watch them, so he sent them both to boarding school. He paid for the finest education, and during holidays insisted that the servants to raise the two children. Three years later, his wife was tragically killed in a hit-and-run on the mansion’s ground after a Christmas party in 2009. Hugh became more cold and isolated than before.

Despite being a strong swimmer, Sir Hugh drowned, at age fifty, in his own swimming pool from from a “stroke” on the 11th November, 2014. The details of his Will were not entirely disclosed. Sir Hugh left most of his estate in Trust, be inherited by his nephew John when he reached the age of thirty. Until then, allowances to several unnamed persons were to be paid.

Dr. Madeline Orchid, Ph.D.

Image

Age: 22
Date of Birth: 18th May, 2004
Place of Birth: London, England
Nationality: Japanese
Height: 5’ 6” (167.64 cm)
Weight: 117 lbs (53 kg)
Eye Color: Brown
Hair Color: Black

The adopted daughter of John Boddy, Madeline Orchid is one of England’s finest and well-educated scientists with many PhDs in biology and chemistry. Her biological parents, both chemists, were killed in a dreadful fire when she was twelve. During her years in the orphanage, Orchid spent most of her time in the library reading about chemistry and biology. At 14 years old, Orchid was adopted by Mr. John Thomas Boddy as his daughter. After return from St. Hugh, Mr. Boddy began to feel lonely. His sister Dorothy was still in boarding school and his friends weren’t always around. Boddy decided then-and-there to adopt a child.

Wanting to continue her parents’ career in biology, Boddy sent Orchid to a private boarding school in Switzerland. Two years later, Orchid was expelled from the school after she was involved in a near-fatal daffodil poisoning incident. She was later home-schooled at Tudor Mansion, her father’s estate. Despite all of that, however, Madeline was able to earn a scholarship to Oxford University in 2022.

While on a research trip in the Amazon for her Ph.D. in plant toxicology, she unearthed the legendary Surboi Zinnia flowers. Surboi Zinnias are plants that were used by natives and witch doctors as medicine for the sick. The plants are more commonly found in the Congo, yet this is the first time they’ve been found in South America. Madeline’s real parents were always been fantasized with the plants ever since she could remember. Wanting to experiment on the plants herself, she took some. Orchid never told anyone about her discovery — not even her own adoptive father.

After graduating from Oxford in 2025, Orchid began secretly experimenting on the plants trying to synthesize it into a wonder drug. She kept her progress in a small journal she kept hidden away, hoping that no one would find it. But some did find it; her father Mr. Boddy. When Boddy was strolling in the south greenhouse last week, he found the journal detailing Orchid’s experiments. Orchid will take any means to keep her experiment a secret, even if it involves family.

The Story
Friday 12th June 2026 - Hampshire, England
Welcome to the village of Little Falls. I’m afraid you a bit late to meet Mr. Boddy (a.k.a. Dr. Black) of Tudor Mansion, for you see… he’s dead. The young lord was celebrating his thirtieth birthday and his inheritance of his late uncle’s estate tonight.

Orphan at a young age, John Thomas Boddy and his sister Dorothy were brought to Tudor Mansion to be raised by their uncle, Sir Hugh Black. Sir Hugh, however, already had a child - so he sent John and Dorothy off to the finest boarding school in England. During the holidays, Hugh’s wife Rose and the house staff, tended to the children.

John worked hard at school, earned his doctorate in medicine, and returned to Tudor Mansion after the death of his uncle. Sir Hugh left the entire Blackwell Estate to his nephew, in Trust, to be inherited by his thirtieth birthday. There was a secret clause in the will however, proving a “allowance” to a small select of people, for unknown reasons.

Mr. Boddy began working as the local village physician, earning him the name ‘Dr. Black’, after his family’s estate.

Soon enough, Boddy discovered these “allowances” were being given to some of Sir Hugh’s former associates. Was Hugh being blackmailed? Was he supporting a secret cause? Or was it something more nefarious? Boddy vowed to get to the bottom of this murky financial dealings.

On the day of his thirtieth birthday, Boddy invited his friends and his uncle’s associates to a weekend gala he was hosting. After the party, someone overheard Boddy talking to his banker about ending these allowances by Monday. That same person alerted the other guests, and all we displeased.

Around 1 a.m. on Saturday, a scream was heard throughout the halls of Tudor Mansion. All the guests rushed to the grand stairway to what’s the cause of the commotion. There, at the bottom of the stairway, was the body of John Boddy… he was murdered.

But why? Was it the cancelation of the allowances? Was it for John’s inheritance? A mistake? Or something else?

John Thomas Boddy (a.k.a. Dr. Black)
Date of Birth: 12th June, 1996
Place of Birth: Boston, Massachusetts
Nationality: American
Height: 6’ 1” (185.42 cm)
Weight: 195 lbs (88.45 kg)

John Thomas Boddy was the nephew of the late Sir Hugh Black, the previous owner of Tudor Mansion. Boddy’s mother, Brooklyn, was Hugh’s sister. Born in Boston, John lived a simple life in the South End. His father Samuel was a reporter for The Boston Globe and an author of several moderately successful books. He had one sister, Dorothy. John also resemble his mother, both in appearance and in personality. When the young lad was eight, his family moved to England, where Brooklyn was from.

When John was only ten, his parents mysteriously disappeared while traveling in New York City. Since John and Dorothy had no other family, they were sent to live with Sir Hugh, how shortly thereafter sent the boy off to boarding school. Sir Hugh provided his nephew with the finest education money could buy, but spent little time with the boy. During holidays, he insisted that the house staff take full responsibility for John and Dorothy. Their doting aunt, Mrs. Rose Black, also took care of the children.

Years later, when John was studying Medicine, Sir Hugh drowned at The Estate’s swimming pool. Sir Hugh left most of the Blackwell Estate, in Trust, to be inherited by John on his thirtieth birthday. After earning his doctorate from St. Hugh’s College, Oxford, Boddy returned to Tudor Mansion and took it as his permanent residence. Mr. Boddy later got a job for the National Health Service as a physician. Although he’s commonly known as “Mr. John Boddy”, some people, mostly the upper class, address him as “Dr. Black”, after his family’s estate.

Mr. Boddy was well liked throughout England. He was a genial, generous and warmhearted man, a charming host, an amusing raconteur, a considerate friend, and a doting father. He grew up to be more charitable than his late uncle, even getting to know some of Sir Hugh’s friends. Recently however, Boddy discovered a secret clause in his uncle’s will, providing an allowance to several of Hugh’s former associates. This made Boddy question his friends’ motives. Were there really his friends, or just taking his charitable nature for granted? Why were they receiving these allowances? Why wasn’t he and Dorothy informed of this beforehand? Mr. Boddy vowed to get to the bottom of this.

For months before his thirtieth birthday, John Boddy did some research on his family and friends, checking their backgrounds, previous relationships, financial records, etc. After collecting enough information, Mr. Boddy planned to end these allowances one and for all. But he never got to, for he was murdered on his thirtieth birthday gala. Was he killed because of the allowances, or something else?

Miss Josephine Scarlett
Age: 24
Date of Birth: 16th July, 2001
Place of Birth: Cambridge, England
Nationality: English
Height: 5’ 6” (167.64 cm)
Weight: 137 lbs (62.14 kg)
Eye Color: Blue
Hair Color: Dark Brown

The seductive Josephine Scarlett, the daughter of Mrs. Elizabeth (Scarlett) Peacock, is one of England’s most beautiful actresses. She’s been seen in the West End, Broadway, and the silver screen. She also works as a singer, dancer and a model. As Hampshire’s most eligible bachelorette, Miss Scarlett enjoys the many gifts her fans and admirers, most of who are older gentlemen. The relationship between her and her mother is pretty rocky, the two seldom agreed with each other.

Miss Scarlett never really knew her father James Scarlett, for he died tragically when she was three years of age. Her two stepfathers also met a similar fate. Mrs. Peacock never really paid any attention to her only child. Miss Scarlett, on the other hand, grew envious of the perceived wealth she thinks her mother selfishly hoards.

After her sudden expulsion from Miss Puce’s School for Girls, Scarlett decided to become an actress like her mother. When she turned 20, Scarlett moved to London to find work in the West End. She was only able to get a few small roles in the West End, but nothing note-worthy or major. Struggling to make ends-meat and refusing to return home with nothing, Scarlett took a job as a “performer/dancer” at a shady cabaret in the dark side of the city (belonging to a certain Madame Rubie).

Back at Hampshire, Mrs. Peacock became worried of her daughter. She hasn’t heard a word about her since she left for London. Only a few phone calls from her, but that’s it. Fearing the worst, she sent her god-son, John Boddy, to investigate what happened to her. After asking a few women who worked for Rubie, he found Josephine during one of her gigs. With Boddy’s help, Miss Scarlett was able to leave Madame Rubie’s “club”. After that, Boddy managed to get Scarlett a starring role in an hit film, since he was a friend of the producer. The film was a success, which cause Scarlett’s career to sky-rocket.

There’s one thing to note about Scarlett: She bore little resemblance to her father, but did, oddly, have the dark hair and blue eyes of Sir Hugh Black, an old friend of Mrs. Peacock and the uncle of John Boddy. Mr. Boddy always had his suspicions. When they first met, Mr. Boddy was taken back to uncanny resemblance his late grandmother. So, one day, Boddy had asked for a DNA test between him and Josephine - it was a match. Years ago, Mrs. Peacock (Formerly Miss Gobelin) and Sir Hugh had a brief affair. Weeks later, she married James Scarlett.

Mr. Boddy thought tonight (his 30th birthday) was the perfect time to tell Miss Scarlett the truth. If this news gets leaked out, it could cause a scandal, which might ruin Scarlett’s reputation. What if he releases her past gets leaked as well? Did this family reunion become a fatal one? It’s also important to note that Scarlett was the last person to see Mr. Boddy alive, and the first to discover his body…

Colonel Micheal Mustard (Ret. SAS)
Age: 56
Date of Birth: 3rd October, 1970
Place of Birth: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Nationality: English
Height: 6’ 3” (193.04 cm)
Weight: 165 lbs (75 kg)
Eye Color: Green
Hair Color: Brown

Mustard was born in Northern Ireland. His father, a Captain in the British Army, was stationed near the city of Belfast at the time. An army brat, at age eight young Mustard’s carefree days ended abruptly after engaging in fisticuffs with the commanding General’s son. Mustard was shipped off to military school in England to be educated and disciplined. The lad was not a remarkable student, so it was expected that after his schooling was completed, he would follow in his father’s footsteps. Unfortunately, those footsteps were stopped short.

The elder Mustard was returning to the barracks late one night evening, when he was accidentally shot and killed by a nervous sentry.

Several officers, who had served with his father, helped young Mustard gain his first commission in 1992. He proudly joined the Hampshire Regiment known as the “Tigers”. It was during this stint that he got to know fellow officer Hugh Black. However, Mustard was not to remain a fighting “Tiger” for long. An unfortunate incident - in which an enlisted man was shot - resulted in Mustard being transferred to a signals unit in the Royal Engineers.

In spite of this incident Mustard’s military career was not undistinguished. He served mainly in Africa and the Middle East, from the Sudan to South Africa, Egypt and Syria. He was decorated several times and had, on two occasions, been the only surviving member of his detachment. Mustard was promoted to Colonel in 2014 and then assigned to the British Special Air Service (SAS). After over thirty years of being military, Colonel Mustard retired in 2020 at age fifty.

During his retirement, Mustard has become well-known as a highly decorated, successful, and popular officer during his youth. However, behind his many medals of honor, lies rumors of black market deals and treason; rumors that Mustard has been paying to keep secret for too long. The old colonel suspects that Hugh’s nephew, John Boddy, might have something to do with this. So when his invitation to Boddy’s gala came to his mailbox, Colonel Mustard might have taken this opportunity to search for evidence in Tudor Mansion. Did he find evidence and decided to teach Boddy a lesson?

Dorothy Rose Boddy is the sister of John Thomas Boddy. Both her and her brother were born in Boston. After Dorothy’s first birthday, her family moved to England. Two years later, both of her parents disappeared while traveling in New York, leaving Dorothy and her older brother orphans. Dorothy doesn’t remember much of her parents, since she was just a toddler when they disappeared.

The two children were taken in by their uncle Sir Hugh Black at his home, Tudor Mansion. After they moved in, John Boddy was sent to boarding school, leaving Dorothy to be raised by nannies. Her aunt, Rose Black, adored little Dorothy and took care of her as if she was her own daughter. Sadly, Rose Black was killed in a hit-and-run during a Christmas party when Dorothy was six. When Dorothy turned eight, she was sent to the same boarding school as her brother John. After the death of Sir Hugh, John Boddy took role as Dorothy’s legal guardian, making Dorothy see John both as a brother and a father figure.

Dorothy grew to be a talented writer like her father before her. When she was attending Winchester College, Hampshire, Dorothy released her first novel under the name “Madame Rose”, in honor of her late aunt. After college, Dorothy got a job as a journalist for The Daily Echo, the local newspaper company in Little Falls.

However, Dorothy always had odd dreams since she was a child, often something happening in the future. Her latest dream had Dorothy spooked: She dreamed of John Boddy being murdered by a shadowy figure on Friday the 12th, his thirtieth birthday. Dorothy vowed to protect her brother, no matter what cause. Did she fail her mission to protect John, or was the shadowy attacker Dorothy herself?
