  • stats & info
    Wonderland wasn't always this way. There was a time when it mirrored medieval England, albeit with a few magical elements: a few quirks and eccentricities that made it truly unique. While all feared the Queen's mercurial temper and the fine blade of her Guillotine, all was well, until a little girl named Alice Liddell disturbed the status quo and sparked a revolution. The kingdom began to fall into decay as the taint of the modern world invaded. History is beginning to repeat itself and no one is happy. As the Queen of Hearts tangles in a battle of wits and riddles with the Cheshire Cat, the rest are starting to wonder ... is it true that the White Rabbit is bringing humans to Wonderland when they themselves are banned from going to London?

Warrick Middle D'Aubigne
we are the monsters
Wonderland has been a home to him over the years, sure. But there are some differences in opinion and while one would argue that there always have been, they haven’t been as pronounced as they are now. He tries to continue to live by his own rules but it’s getting more and more difficult. Even though Wonderland falling to ruin should be something for him to use, it hardly is – he got used to London and its ways and even though it had been years since he was able to move freely between the two, he misses it.

There are times when he wants to violate the rules but he keeps himself distracted by Antoinette.

he really enjoyed bubble baths
It’s all about the great game. It doesn’t really matter who wins and who loses, not to him. Not as long as he is able to do as he pleases and he is – for his lifelong interest is finally his to have. She is the most beautiful of all and he has always found himself attracted to her. Antoinette Beaumont, the Red Rose, belongs to him.


London is dearly missed on his part. Twenty human years have passed since the portals have been closed and he found himself becoming bored, more and more with each day. When he had it, he failed to realise how much freedom London was giving him. Then, suddenly, it was taken away.

He was unimpressed by the Queen’s antics in Wonderland. Limiting the freedom that London has given him was not something that he appreciated. It was bad enough with not being able to stay in his true form for long and now that...


You’re given a vague description. Tall, dark hair, blue eyes... but it’s clear once you see him. There’s an unexplainable darkness to him, a strange madness, something different that gives you goose bumps. He is certainly not the first person that you’ve come across in this strange land but his demeanour is something that drives you towards him, even though the fear makes you tense. He’s attractive, charming, sure. But there is something about him that is just on the side of unsettling and so you keep to yourself. Even though the woods are dark, you know that he can see you, you can feel his eyes on you. There is something predatory in his stare, or maybe that’s just your paranoia. You choose to believe the latter until proven otherwise...

And you are proven otherwise quite soon after, if a hand around your throat is anything to go by.


There is an elegance to the monster. He is something else, honestly, and it’s hard to define exactly what makes him different. He says he is a businessman, trapped here with the rest of them, waiting to go back home but eventually, they all learn the truth. He is one of them, a monster.

He sits down, the sleeves of his shirt rolled up to his elbows as he looks down. The picture before him is quite well done, the beauty well translated into the piece. It was of a red rose. He smirked, smoothing the paper down as he let his imagination run wild. The flower got him in trouble before and even though he found himself attracted to her, the desire to kill her seemed to run alongside that. The Red Rose made her bed and now she would have to lie in it.

He didn’t need anybody’s services. Choosing to stall their reunion himself, he thought everything through. Every single way that he could destroy her in was assessed and when he finally figured out a way, he decided to let her think she was safe. He was going to be patient.

Looking down at the picture, he smiled. Stalking his prey was something he’d always thoroughly enjoyed.

Yeah, I know this street and I own this crowd And my only companion is a lightning cloud I seem real nice and easy to trust Ashes to ashes and dust to dust I’m gonna lead you a path to self destruct On this crazy train that I conduct.
