    Date of acquisition:
    May 5th, 2012
    Bought from a DoA user, who bought from another, who bought from another... he has been passed around.
    Reason for choice:
    I was in the market for an unwilling companion for my other doll, and thought a short, playful, flirty character would nicely contrast my tall skinny repressed nerd.
    Best Points:
    I adore his pointy chin and nose and his ducky lip. He can look foxy and deviant or playful or completely wild-eyed depending on the angle; I find him very expressive. He is also lightweight and stands solidly.
    Worst Points:
    His elbows are primitive spherical ball joints and he's lacking some finer anatomical details. The ball joints in his thighs like to spin around. His hands are too small and simple for my tastes.
    When I first picked Lysander up out of his shipping box, I found out he had come unstrung during transport due to a broken s-hook. I didn't have any replacement hooks at the time, so he was treated to bent-up paperclips, and *gasp* he still has some of them. :sweat I have been meaning to wire his elbows for about five years now. His eyes were given to me for free and I never upgraded them. He’s also been waiting on a manicure half his life. All things considered, he's a really good sport.

    Ly is special for the reason that he is my only "happy" doll. As a character, he offers a lot of levity and great comic relief moments. He reminds me not to take anything too seriously, and also that sometimes it's really okay to just SCREAM when something goes wrong.

    Suri alpaca handmade by me
    Fashion style(s):
    He's a basic sloppybun Pinterest girl who takes extreme care about his hair, weight, nails and hygiene and then goes out in sweatpants 60% of the time.
    Key fashion accessory:
    His lip ring. He also has a tongue stud. He'd love to show you, I'm sure.
  • Name story:
    Lysander: Taken from a flamboyant, popular character in a fiction novel set in ancient Greece.
    Fernando: From the ABBA song, because Uriah makes references to songs and sings peoples' names and I needed this one to be especially irritating to the subject. Story-wise, the song is of importance to his parents.
    Belpois: Just needed a two-syllable French surname.

    Offsite roleplay:
    This doll's character is not available for offsite roleplay.
    ESFP, Rooster, Taurus, struggling Psychology major, Gailan's roommate, Theo's maternal cousin. Born to a Texan horse trainer and a French trapeze artist, Lysander is the bilingual fifth child of six and grew up in an Airstream trailer trekking across Canada as part of a skeezy low-budget circus. It was difficult to distinguish himself amongst four older sisters, so to put it frankly, he had to become loud. Finding ground crew work to be filthy and unglamorous, from an early age he sought to distance himself from it as much as possible, and did clowning, liberty animal acts with his mum, and was a fearless addition to his father's trapeze and high-wire act.

    Lysander's grandmother was vocal about her distaste for his long hair, hand-me-down girl clothes and cheerful flamboyance long before they had anything to do with sexuality. When he decided to 'come out', it caused a huge rift with his extended family--arguably, yelling it graphically over Thanksgiving dinner may not have been the appropriate approach--and despite support from his parents, when the circus went under and he found himself at a crossroads anyway, he made the decision to distance himself. Education in the States offered a chance at a new beginning, however... when he agreed to his dad’s offer to send him away to school, he may have been expecting a hotter roommate.

    The Lysander we see today is happily indulging himself after years of keeping himself under wraps. He is a party animal with no verbal filter or sense of physical boundary, a complete diva and is not the brightest bulb in the box. His boundless energy, extreme self-adoration, uncontrollable flirtatiousness and tendency to screech, cackle, wail and pout is something the shy find overwhelming. His athletic BFF bro-cousin Theo (owned by my friend) has always been his partner in crime, and together they can crack enough "Your Mum" jokes to make you hate them in a matter of minutes.
