Group: Contestant Characters


Human of dwarfish stature


Proprietor and barkeep of the Ladys Grace, a public bar and house of ill repute built overlooking the Greenwich Docklands.



Physical Appearance

Bolak is a quirky little fellow with a quick smile and an infectious laugh. He's around four feet tall with a bald head and bushy ginger eyebrows. He generally wears the traditional blue of the East India Company.


Of Polish heritage Bolak was once a powerful and well respected partner in the East India trading company prior to the East India Stock Dividend Redemption Act 1873 and the disestablishment of the once proud business. The East India Company remains now as a society of rich and powerful partners who's interests are shrouded in mystery.

His brother is the commander of the East India Flag Ship, the Fessarius and highly influential in the diminished power of the society. For reasons know only to the two brothers, Bolak was disgraced and thrown out of the Society and so he came to London as a banished refugee. Over the years he sought various ways of building up his wealth and reputation once more and perhaps one day returning to his rightful place at his brothers side.
