Known History Edit

Background: Born in 1833 to a poor family in Spitalfields, London. His mother worked as a maid, his father worked at a ship yard/docks and hardly was home. His father never came home like he promised for his 11th birthday. His mother took him to work with her the next day as long as he stayed out of sight and in the servant's quarters. Later that day it was found out that his father had died in a "ship yard accident."

His mother wasn't able to afford their house by herself so she had to sell their home and move into her master's house with the rest of the servants. Julian was sent off to an orphanage a short time later. The next year, when he was 12, he was adopted by a middle-high class family and brought to live with them in York. The family had another child of their own who was 9 years younger than Julian. His adoptive parents weren't the most responsible parents and were often out at parties, leaving Julian to babysit, sometimes a days at a time.

One day a few months later he snuck out to join a group of boys around his age to go see the Scarborough Fair, which he'd always wanted to see. When he was there, the group got separated. That's when Julian discovered his first hedge gate. Once inside the hedge he was found by hobgoblins and captured to be sold at market with a few other children. During his capture, he managed to escape a few times; each time he was caught again before reaching a gate. It wasn't until he was 15 when he caught the attention of a Gentry. That Gentry purchased him on the spot and brought him back to Arcadia to live until he was able to escape in 2006.

During his durance he served as his keeper's butler/ entertainer. His job, other than normal butler duties, was to help with all the ball and party setups. His keeper often invited other Gentry to these balls he hosted. It was also Julian's job to make sure the parties ran smoothly. If the guests weren't entertained enough, or if he didn't satisfy his keeper, Julian became the entertainment. His keeper always kept a collection of toys and tools close by to entertain with.

If a servant did manage to escape, his keeper had a "hunting party" to bring back the escaped changelings. These hunting trips involved the use of dog-like creatures (were they other changelings?). His keeper became bored and tired of most everything if it went on for too long. He abandoned hunting trips and lost interest if the escaped changeling wasn't found within a few days, taking his frustrations out on his servants, and butler, when he returned.

Once Julian finally did manage to escape, he floated along from job to job after that, all servant and caregiver jobs. He's still dealing with culture shock and at times is socially awkward.
