History: Rosier is one year older than he is in NYC. He lives in Babylon, the neutral but burdened region. He's the oldest sibling to Persephone, Osiris, and Hypnos. Their family owns numerous poppy fields and they are in the opium business. He handles the business end of things and looks after his siblings. When it comes to Osiris, he has a habit of using his connections and his travelling to his advantage. Gotta sell opium...:|
He's 31 years old and avoiding marriage till the end of forever. He spends most of his time with work and has every intention of selling opium to whomever will buy it.
Extra notes: The earliest clear description of the use of opium as a recreational drug in China came from Xu Boling, who wrote in 1483 that opium was "mainly used to aid masculinity, strengthen sperm and regain vigor," and that it "enhances the art of alchemists, sex and court ladies."
William Cullen and John Brown, two well-known physicians at the time, claimed it cured things such as typhus, cancer, cholera, rheumatism, smallpox, malaria, venereal disease, hysteria, and gout in the eighteenth century
