(Les & Inocenta & fawns, 1937)

Leslie duCleds  &
Willow Fawnsworthy

From the personal diary of Willow Fawnsworthy
5 May, 1935
(as edited by M. Mitchell Marmel)

Character backgrounds by M. Mitchell Marmel:

Leslie duCleds

Species/Gender:  Boston Terrier canine/male

Physical appearance:  Typical 1930's playboy type.  Good physical shape.  Pencil mustache.  Affects jodhpurs and riding boots on the ground, tailored jumpsuit when flying.

Nationality:  American.

Occupation:  Self-styled "adventurer"

Leslie "Les" duCleds is the heir to the DuCleds Chemical fortune.  Ostensibly traveling to maintain the family business in the South Pacific, Les has decided to have adventures along the way.  Inspired by the "Doc Ferocious" and detective pulp stories he read while attending an Ivy League university, he has practiced in armed and unarmed combat, studied science and languages.  While skilled, Les thinks he's more proficient than he really is.  Les is an avid aviator, and can move in society circles with ease (owing to a lifetime of practice).

Willow Fawnsworthy

Species/Gender:  Doe/Female

Physical appearance:  Slender, but curves in the right places.  Blonde hair, just above shoulder length.

Nationality:  American

Occupation:  Secretary/Companion (apparently), PI/bodyguard (actually)

The duCleds didn't make a fortune in chemicals by being fools.  When young Leslie decided to take up gallivanting, his father, Paul duCleds, decided that a chaperone/ bodyguard would be needed.  Being perceptive, he also knew that Leslie would ditch an ordinary bodyguard like a shot.  Accordingly, one of the Minkerton Detective Agency's finest female operatives was hired for the job.  Officially, Willow is Leslie's secretary and companion.  However, if trouble strikes, she can outfight, outfly and outshoot her charge (unbeknownst to Leslie).  Ever the professional, Willow hasn't let any romance develop, although she and Leslie have become fast friends.
