History: Norman Garrow was born in 1870 in the village of Burniston to the local school master and his wife. His father had grand aspirations for his only son, so named him after the French conquerors of England. Yet surrounded by sisters and a doting mother, Norman turned out to be more of a gentle soul, to his father’s annoyance. Shy, but bright, young Norman was studious, gifted in arithmetic but struggled with composition.

When Norman was very young, his family moved to Scarborough proper to follow his father’s teaching career. Young Norman enchanted by the sea and would beg his father to take him down to the pier or to nearby Whitby to watch the boats. Norman fancied that he would grow up to be a sailor and travel the oceans on grand adventures - but when he did go out on the water for real, Norman found himself intimidated, unnerved, and slightly sickened by the reality of the ocean and didn’t pursue it. Instead, he settled for the hobby of ‘ship-spotting’ from the safety of the shore with the aid of a looking glass, journal, and a pencil. His father scoffed at his odd hobby, while his mother approved as it seemed to keep him out of trouble.

As a youth, Norman was persuaded to accept an apprenticeship with the Northern Building Society, learning the trade of clerk. His aptitude with sums, diligent work, and inoffensive demeanour meant eventual promotion to junior clerk and work at different branches in Scarborough.

More recently, his work has earned him promotion to Senior Clerk and a transfer to the building society’s branch in Whitby. This suits Norman quite well as he gets more money and is close to his beloved boats. He has also volunteered to be recorder of meetings for the Parish Church Council for St Michael’s Church, merely because no one else wanted the job. Personality-wise Norman is still bashful and retiring and does not appear to want to leave his comfort zone.

Unfortunately for Norman, he is being ripped from his comfort zone by the exotic Lailiani McKenzie. She is a Hawaiian woman of considerable force of personality and gorgeous looks who wants self-determination and status in English society and to annoy her father. She finds Norman not entirely unattractive.. and will eat him alive. But she likes boats.. so Norman doesn't care.
OOC Preferences: As a solid citizen, Norman probably wouldn't do anything too raucous, risky, or risqué.. but maybe he should. Let's talk first.
Alias: BlackAck
