OOC - The Other Patricks
Again mostly for my benefit, I thought I would make a resource post about all the forms of Patrick. Headcanon is that Patrick is the original and the rest came after him but I don't actually think this even matters. I listed what each Patrick looks like and the journal they will be played from.
Patrick's Past~ Was born in Roman Britain (NOT WALES, DAMMIT)and was captured by slave traders and kept in Ireland for 6 years starting at age 16. Past threads from his days of slavery will use the PB Jaco van der Hoven. Past threads from his time in the UK before leaving for the US which was roughly early 400s and then 600ish to 1740(and his early time in America) will use the PB Joseph Fiennes.
American Patrick ~ shamrocked_ (PB Tim Minchin) Arrived in 1741 and is now more a cultural icon than a saint. He embodies most of the stereotypes about Irish people in America, which is why he has red hair, drinks, and loves parades. Also the version responsible for Loíza, Puerto Rico as it is an American Territory and might soon be a state. Patrick is on the friendliest terms with Padraig.
Irish (UK) Patrick ~ naomh_padraig (PB Joseph Fiennes) Goes by Padraig but will still answer to Patrick if he has to. Still sees himself as a religious icon and as the Bishop of Ireland. He still considers himself part of the clergy which is why he is celibate, though he wasn't always so back before there was a rule about such things. He is also a little militaristic for obvious reasons. He is also the version of Patrick responsible for looking over Monserrat, a Caribbean Island, as it is an overseas territory of the UK.
Australian Patrick ~ shamrocked_ (PB Tim Minchin but with dreads) Goes by Paddy. He spends most his time in Melbourne as that is where the archdiocese of Saint Patrick is. He spends part of the year in the outback though, at a cattle station. He is wilder than Patrick, and a bit more blunt. He has an antagonistic relationship with Padraig, but gets along well enough with Patrick and wants the Yank to visit. Occasionally guest lecures at the Australian Catholic University, Saint Patrick's Campus in Melbourne (because Lara used to work there, represent!).
Spanish Patrick ~ shamrocked_ (PB Joseph Fiennes) Goes by Patricio and lives in Murcia. I don't know much about him yet, but will develop him later!
Italian Patrick ~ shamrocked_ (PB Jaco van der Hoven) Italian Patrick goes by Patrizio. He lives in Orvieto because of this. He looks like his younger self because Patrick was originally a Roman citizen who was named Patricius. Hence his belief there is tied more to his youth than anywhere else, even though he grew up in Roman Britain somewhere in modern day Scotland. I will develop him more later!
Nigerian Patrick ~ shamrocked_ (PB DB Woodside) Nigerian Patrick answers to both Patrick and Akachi which is the Igbo name which means 'Hand of God'. He works a lot with the government, as well as helping persecuted Christians in Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa.
