Personality: The words friendly and competitive, sums up a good description of Gawain Orkney. Actually if he could rein in his nature, he actually might find a good friend in Mr. Markham. Unfortunately he only sees Markham's action as a challenge to him. Of course any PC that matches him in skills and abilities, he might also take a competitive disliking too. He is loyal to both Lorelei and his family though in the matter of love Lorelei wins hands down.
Quote:"Are you challenging me? If so I so hope that it is worth it."
Background: The male descendants of Sir Gawaine knight of the round table have always had their ancestor's unique strength and so it was that Gawain Orkney, who was born on a chilly spring morning in 1845, inherited this family blessing. Gawain grew up strong and lean. He was a favourite amongst the woman of his household and the envy of the males. He also showed at an early age a brilliant mind that was always questing for answers.

Gawain attended the most prestigious boarding school and college at Oxford. It was here that he met his life long friend Clifford Rowe and his rival Arthur Markham. Orkney hit it right of with the care-free and bright Rowe. To Rowe life was something to enjoy and cherish, but with Markham it was a different story. Right from the start, Gawain who had never had to compete for anything found in Markham someone who was on par with him. This goaded the young Orkney to no end and thus started their rivalry.

After College Gawain traveled, seeing the wonders of the continent. He had many of adventures their but they were always too easy except when he was competing against Markham. But it was his return to England that he broke up a sacrifice of a young lady by one Richard Danvers and his group of cultist (though at the time he did not know who the leader of the cult was and even today he only has suspicions). Danvers escaped from the turmoil of Orkney and his friends breaking up his ritual and has vowed to get even with Orkney.

It was also during this time he started crossing swords with a London crime-lord by the name of Harvey Deacon, a disgusting little man who would sell his mother for the right price. Orkney has broken up a few of his criminal activities and has earned Deacon's ire. Deacon has put out a reward for Orkney's head but also be stingy with money, Deacon's bounty has not gotten too many takers.

Gawain greatest adventures were yet to come and the omen for those arrived at a ball he was attending. He saw this visage of beauty from across the room and before Markham could sweep in on her, he had arranged an introduction with her escort. Lorelei Delamare was beautiful, exciting and sad all at the same time. Also there was air about her that seemed to keep most men away from her, but Orkney was not about to let that bother him. Somehow he knew that this young woman was the woman for him and so it was that these two adventurers met and began their romance together (a subject that does not sit well with his family).
Powers/Tactics: While investigating any series of events whether criminal or occult, Gawain is patient and investigates all possibilities. When it comes to a fight though, he loves to wade in join the melee with all caution to the wind. This has caused Lorelei to fret about his survival on a number of occasions.
Campaign Use: A male PC has been having a nice conversation with Miss Delamare when Gawain notices them. Gawain fearing that the PC is after his love has put forth a friendly competition for the morrow. The player can either agreed and gain Orkney as rival or bow out gracefully and maybe build a friendship with him.

The players are approached by an underworld fellow looking for help in dealing with Orkney. This person is willing to pay a good sum to have Orkney dealt with and will lie concerning Orkney's activities and paint as the blackest of villains. If the player takes him up on the offer, will soon discover what they have been told are lie, so the question remains which one of Orkney's enemies is behind this.
