Christophe

GLAAD Media AwardsPrince Christophe Barimen, née Christophe François L’Embarel, is allegedly a son of Corwin Barimen, son of Oberon of Amber.  The circumstances and provenance of his birth are unknown, or at least have not been reliably reported.

Upon arrival in Amber, Prince Christophe made a brief appearance in Court where he managed, in the course of ten minutes, to humiliate a senior courtier, swear allegiance to the Throne, and depart again.  He has established (temporary?) residence in the Royal Quarters in apartments overlooking the west courtyard.  Notices have since been posted in the west courtyard warning passersby of falling objects.

He has a fondness for crossword puzzles, espresso, sleeping, large breakfasts and fine alcohol.  He also has a fondness for average alcohol, and it has been suggested he could develop a fondness for utterly shite alcohol if pressed.

He wears fashions typical of 1930s Earth Prime’s aristocratic classes, similar to those depicted in the novel The Great Gatsby, with a focus on flannels, oxford cloth and silk.  He is clean shaven and impeccably groomed, favoring an obscure cologne which he refers to as “Night in the Swamp Number Four”, despite it’s obvious quality and reportedly hideous cost.

Notes on Prince Christophe from the Tiereth ‘Envoy’s Guide’

Prince Christophe is the smartest, cleverest, most sophisticated and interesting man in all creation.  Just ask him.  He’ll tell you.

AT LENGTH.  GREAT LENGTH.
