Don't worry... I'm a doctor.

Profile Information

Hello. My persona name is Doctor Mortimer Van-Wyke, and in character, I am a mortician, and the keeper/owner of 'Van-Wyke's steam powered mortuary'... as well as an ex government coroner. and, heck, I also seem to be the gunner on a pirate's ship, now. I'm on busy doctor.

...but it's quite seldom I'm actually in character, to be honest. My persona is more or less myself, dressed up to be a tad bit fancier.

In real life, my name is Aijia (which is quite a mouthful, so most people call me A.J.), and I'm an amateur fencer, artist, competitive debater, musician and actor. I'm Russian-Canadian,and I'm currently taking up residence in BC, Canada.

And, yes. I'm studying in the funeral field to become a real mortician. I spend a fair amount of my time down in the morgue.

I play trombone, guitar, piano, musical saw and balalaika, and I'm occasionally the vocalist/guitarist in a project band known as 'children of tomorrow', though it's not an act I'm very concerned with at the moment. I usually preform solo, and hope dearly I can have some songs up on the internet quite soon.

As far as my presence on the internet goes, you can find me on tumblr on my blog 'Mortimer Van-Wyke's Steam Powered Mortuary' at I love followers.
I've also started a steampunk themed roleplaying website. You can find it in all of it's messy glory here:

One more thing... I suppose I could formally answer that one, looming question that many people seem to want to ask, but never feel comfortable to do so...
Yes, I am gender neutral. More specifcally, genderfluid. This means that I identify by neither gender.
I have my lady days and I have my gentleman days.
Address me by terms for either gender, or simply 'Dr.', and I'm fine with it. I'm not one who is easily offended. Just be polite about it~ :)

that's about all you need to know about me, and if you'd like to know more (or simply wish to get to know me better) feel free to message me. I don't bite. I'm actually quite a friendly person.

I'm also the king of England.

My good doctor,

     It's been a while since we've talked and I do so miss your charming conversation. Am I correct in noting that you are planning a murder mystery rp? The idea sounds absolutely delightful! I do believe I would so enjoy participating if you would have me.

                                                                      Your's Truly,

                                                                      Sergeant Ian MacBruiche
