    ====================

  • Bio:

    Born to wealth and power, like a duck is born to water. His Lordship, Dr. James Avery Warburton III is heir to the wealthiest family in England. While there are many noble families with more influence and power in England, none can hold a candle to the might of the Warburton’s financial strength. The only child of Lord James Avery Warburton II and the late Lady Janet Mercedes Bryce, James is the third son to bear the family name and is heir to the financial might of the Warburton’s varied investments. His father, currently a Baron of Great Britain, maintains the Warburton Empire, fulfilling his role as a shareholder is some of the world’s wealthiest businesses.

    Much like his father before him, James enjoyed a very privileged and carefree life during his early years. His constant friend and eventual bodyguard, Maxwell Carington III, sharing it with him. After graduating from a private high school, he went on to the University of Cambridge, while Maxwell joined the SAS. There he received an education in business, politics, and finance, but also in history. Once he and Maxwell were reunited, Maxwell now taking on the role of his valet and bodyguard, the excitement truly began. Inheriting some of his father’s more roguish contacts, he set out to use his wealth and power to find interesting artifacts through mostly legal means. It was during the last such incident that his life would change forever.

    Those who heard about Jame’s investment, his visit to the Egyptian dig site, and his return don’t know what happened. But he came back a changed man. More confident, more powerful, more driven. Now he bent his knowledge and resources to tracking down certain Egyptian, Grecian and Roman artifacts. He also became involved in supernatural matters after that time, and something certainly seems to have taken an interest in him. His investments and interest in Egyptian artifacts, earned him an honorary Doctorate from the University of Cairo, though there are many in academia that were insulted by this.

    Stranger still, he had a run in with the White Council a few years later in England, and while no one but James and the Wardens know precisely what happened, he came out of it seemingly untouchable by the White Council’s secret police. After acquiring his latest piece of antiquity, he ran afoul a few legal issues, but is certain they will be sorted out soon enough. In the meantime, he has decided to take a vacation across the pond to his family’s home in Seattle.

    James has been abroad quite a bit the last five years since the trip that changed him, but he looks forward to a bit of rest and relaxation in Seattle.
