John Laurens, the courtesan. First character sheet of tiashipyon and my Perfume AU.
Being the son of a fine noble man, John Laurens cold childhood was scheduled by his private education in literature, music and art. At the age of 17 however his father disowns him after finding out about his sinful interest in men. Finding shelter in Paris John tries to survive, selling art and giving lessons playing the violin. One of his pupils including young Theodosia Burr, building a close friendship to her father Aaron Burr one of the police officers in Paris Suburb. When his jobs don’t pay enough for living anymore Laurens is forced to hire as a courtesan, blaming his long auburn hair, angelic face and fragile frame covered in thousands of redish freckles on olive skin, earning quiet good money. Not only getting paid for sex but for spying on several statesman for the known all over town corrupt politician Thomas Jefferson, Burr starts worrying about his friends well-being. His offers for help being rejected by John who enjoys his life not being bound to one person, not owing anyone anything. Till the day he stumbled over a young man, the owner of a little store producing and selling perfumes, named Alexander Hamilton. The skinny pale boy himself, avoided by most people for his odd behavior and lack of empathy, quickly developes an obsession with the smal freckled man. John finds himself more and more fascinated by Alex’ view on the world, his weird social interactions and way of showing affection and feelings. Slowly growing more than insight for each other, sharing their wishes and dreams, John tries to hide the secret that he’s incurably ill. His scent is the first and only one, Alex is not able to name, but simultaneously the most seductive and strongest of all flavors he ever inhaled. While most of the common scents the perfumer smells appear in one single color, he describes him as ‘all colourful sunsets at once.’
