Known Information

Recently arrived Mandrake from Elua. He was known as the Innocent Mandrake during his years of service to Mandrake. And now is a Thorny Rose for Rose Sauvage.


Dante was born in Brive to Comte Basile de Somerville and his wife Nadine d’Essoms de Somerville. With enough spare siblings his family adhered to the traditions and with his place in the family tree his fate was sealed moments after his birth to become a courtesan. It appeared that he would make a wonderful addition to the Alyssum House and on his eighth birthday his marque was purchased. His life as a novice was joyful for the boy but although he was definitely able to maintain the act of innocence when caught doing something he shouldn’t have been. He’d quickly taken over as the so-called leader of the novices in their shenanigans.

The way he kept taking charge of the other novices and the trouble his willful and natural dominance was causing forced the Alyssum house to reassess his placement for the house. At age of 10 after the candy test and the pleasure he took watching the discomfort of his fellow novices his marque was sold off to House Mandrake and if he shined at his ability to maintain the act of being innocent as an Alyssum he soared as a Mandrake novice. Discipline was much harsher for him as he was starting his training slightly later than other Novices but he was a natural when it came to ropes almost making it an art form from a young age. After finishing up his novice training in almost record time despite starting later he was ready for his debut.

His debut was slightly later than usual as he had a lot to learn but on his seventeenth birthday he started on his marque. His virgin price wasn’t nearly what he had been hopeful for but he didn’t let that slow up his ambition of earning his marque quickly and continuing his service to Naamah as a full-fledged courtesan. He’d quickly earned himself the nickname of ‘The Innocent Mandrake’ and quickly took to the idea letting his time in House Alyssum serve him as a Mandrake. After what seemed like a lifetime his marque was completed and he took what he believed in his eyes his rightful place as a courtesan.

Plying his trade and living up to his nickname he made a name for himself with his skill with ropes and his enjoyment of appropriate punishment and rules for his contracts. He never inflicted pain on his patrons without it being tied to an infraction for his rules and all of his contracts were long term contracts. It was during this time that he’d gotten a taste for the finer things in life and his desire to become something more than just a courtesan started to rear its head. After almost a decade of handling patrons and establishing himself as a skilled courtesan he’d decided to pack up and move to Marsilikos to start anew as an independent courtesan and hopefully find a way to rise up the social and political ladder there
