Thistle Family

From Horror MUX
Jump to: navigation, search

The Thistle family - many are civil servants or officials, including Police Chief Nancy Thistle (early 50s). While there are no recognized family heads like there were in Prosperity, this being 1994, Nancy is the oldest of the Thistles currently in Havasu. She has two younger siblings that also reside in town: Raymond Thistle (40s) who owns and operates the Lake Havasu Funeral Home, and another sibling that can be a PC in a teacher, clergy or city official role (age/gender negotiable).

Character Options: At present, Ray and Vanessa are full up on kids with triplets. A Senior child of Ray and Cassie is still possible, as are adult children of theirs. Nancy and Hank still have openings for grandkids (you make the parents), and Ian has an open slot for a Senior kid.

Members and Associates


Nancy Thistle (Central Casting)

Role: Chief of Police
Age: Early 50s
Played by: Central Casting

Highly respected in town and seen as a tough, no-nonsense cop. She's fair, though, and is known for giving second chances. No one knows for sure what went wrong in her marriage. Some say both she and Hank are workaholics and it just didn't work. Family members suspect she's gay and just from a generation where being out is not something you do. She's always been a good mom, even when working long hours, and puts family first. She's on cordial terms with Hank.


Hank Grabel (Central Casting)

Role: Nancy's ex-husband, Attorney
Age: 50s
Played by: Central Casting

Hank's not a bad guy for a lawyer. He's friendly, funny, and good at his job. He's awkward as a father, but he tries. Still on decent terms with Nancy.


Ray Thistle (Central Casting)

Role: Funeral Home Director
Age: Late 40s
Played by: Central Casting

The middle Thistle, he took over the family business when Nancy showed less than zero interest growing up. He's a very empathetic and supportive sort, great at comforting families in pain, and truly enjoys what he does. He married Cassie, his high school sweetheart, and realized a few years in that it was a mistake. She was far more ambitious and materialistic, going from the hair and makeup artist for the funeral home to trying to be the manager with big plans for price increases and expansion. He stuck it out for as long as he could, starting an affair with his restoration artist/embalmer, Vanessa, and it ended up wrecking his marriage. He paid Cassie off to leave the business with him. The stress of the divorce caused a rift between he and Vanessa for a time, but they got back together and soon married. He's a good, compassionate dad and husband.


Dr. Vanessa St. Claire-Thistle (Central Casting)

Role: Coroner/Medical Examiner, Ray's current wife
Age: 40s
Played by: Central Casting

She started out as a restoration artist in the family business, got her medical degree, and now does coroner/medical examiner duties on the side. She and Ray developed a romance during his strained first marriage, but the shared guilt they felt over that divorce split them up for a time. When she learned she was pregnant they decided to try again, and it's been successful. She's a great mother and quite accepting of her kids' strange and unusual ways - they grew up in a funeral home, after all. Nancy likes her much more than she liked Ray's first wife.


Cassie Thistle (Central Casting)

Role: Ray's ex-wife, beauty salon owner
Age: 40s
Played by: Central Casting

Ray's first wife and high school sweetheart. They married too young and grew in different directions, with Cassie seeing the family business as just that, a business. She never agreed with Ray's sentimental ways and they drifted. His affair with Vanessa was the catalyst for divorce. She nearly bankrupted him when he insisted on buying her out rather than selling or sharing the family business, and she opened a high-end salon with the settlement. She's a decent mother, if a bit aggressive and materialistic, focused on popularity and image most of all.


Ian Thistle (Archetype)

Role: Alicia Thistle's Husband/History Teacher
Age: 40
Played by: The Pedagogue

Ian is the youngest brother of Nancy and Raymond, is married to Alicia Thistle and child TBD Thistle. He is a history teacher at the highschool and Alicia is a drama teacher. Their son is a senior.


Noah Webster Thistle (Archetype)

Role: Nancy and Hank's Son
Age: 29
Played by: The Caretaker

Noah Webster Thistle was always the kid his friends turned to when they were in trouble and needed help. He never got in a lot of trouble himself, but helped cover up more than his fair share of broken windows, bad grades, and nights spent away from home.

In third grade somebody found out his middle name was Webster. He got the nickname 'Webby' among his peers and a few people still use it, much to his annoyance.

He went off to college out of town after high school, and while he's been back for frequent visits he's just now come back to Lake Havasu permanently as the junior doctor at the hospital.


James Thistle (Archetype)

Role: Ray and Cassie's Son
Age: 18
Played by: The Melancholic

The troubled misanthropic son of Raymond Thistle and his ex-wife Cassie, James was initially one of a pair of twins; his brother died very young. James has always been quiet and tended to keep to himself, preferring the company of books to that of people, and is prone to talking to himself when he doesn't know others are watching.


Silver Thistle (Archetype)

Role: Ray & Vanessa's Daughter
Age: 18
Played by: Gina Torres

Firstborn of Vanessa and Ray's triplets, she was always the most physical and curious. Despite the fact she gets hurt easy. Beyond the family she is very reserved and shy, though she does put her all into her studies and her hobbies. Of which there are a few, photography being a big one. It's how she actually got 'friends' outside the family. Lucas and Landon. She has a pet snake and a pet tarantula. The Mexican Pink Toe's name is Fang. The corn snake's name are Bolo and Noodle. Don't tell mom, but she actually has 2 corn snakes and makes extra money breeding them...


Spear Thistle (Archetype)

Role: Ray and Vanessa's son
Age: 18
