      Picture of Mother, Father, Sister, both Brothers and himself, Together

      Background.

      Tavis is an Englishman, and it shows, his mannerisms, vocabulary, and
      not to mention his accent, identify him as someone with a gentler
      upbringing than most of the people around the west, and his mode of
      dress, and insitance on such things as afternoon tea, only serve to
      further alienate him from the people he has found himself surrounded
      by.

      He grew up on the coast of Cornwall, England, where he learnt a
      little of the usual things that are learnt by young men in the
      country - and was also the star of the church choir - his boyish
      treble being seen as a gift from God that should be used in his
      praises. For this very reason the local lord, Jeffrey Treffry paid
      to have the young boy sent to London to audition for the Choir at St.
      Pauls Cathedral (Against his fathers wishes - as his father expected
      him to continue the family tradition of being a merchantman -
      starting on his fathers own ship) - and he was sucessful! It was in
      London, however, that he discovered the Vaudeville stage - it
      captured his imagination, and he found himself sneaking away from the
      cloister to listen to the music of the stage - a feat which caused
      him no end of trouble.
      Before long, his antics caused him to be cast out of the church
      Choir - something which he managed to keep from his parents.

      While he was away the terrible news of the deaths of his brothers
      reached him - one kicked in the head by a horse, the other drowned,
      caught out on the river in a storm. It was a dual sadness for him,
      as he was unable to travel home to see them laid to rest and say his
      final goodbyes.

      For several years he continued to eke out a living as a singer in
      various music halls, never really getting the 'big break' that he
      wanted. At the age of 23 he recieved a letter from his sister,
      saying that his mother had been struck ill, and that she herself was
      suffering from a malaise, even as she wrote.

      Travelling home, post-haste, he arrived shortly after his mother had
      passed away, and was forced to bury his sister not three weeks
      later. His father had sailed for Galveston, trading, over a month
      ago, and was not expected back for some time.

      A year passed, then two, and still his father had not returned, so
      Tavis decided to set out to find him. Leaving his family home empty
      he travelled to the New World, arriving in New York - thanks to a
      mistake in his geographical skills, and began to make his way west,
      thinking that he would turn south near Denver to make his way into
      Texas.

      He earns his keep by staging impromptu performances in some of
      the 'nicer' saloons, or hotel bars, and has sung his heart out every
      Sunday in the church of whichever town he's found himself in. He
      still has a long way to go to get to Galveston, but he know's he will
      get there soon.

      [OOC note - My Great-Grandfather, Great-Great-Grandfather and Great-
      Great-Great-Grandfather really were Merchant Captains who traded in
      Galveston - some of their Ships Logs are on display in the Maritime
      Museum there]
