Lord Percival Andrew Moore (or Percy to family and Drew to friends) is the second son of Lord Charles Herbert Moore and Lady Agnes Byrne-Moore. He grew up in a Catholic household in Ireland and was expected to find a good marriage to a lord or lady with whom he can start a family. He was expected to become a scholar or soldier and was never meant to inherit any titles or responsibilities. As a child he was a bit rebellious, but only where no one could see him. He maintained a good reputation as a devoted son and brother. On the occasion that his sister, Charlotte Mary Moore, had her honor called into question (which was quite often) and he would send a stern letter to the offender with thinly veiled threats of financial destruction (at which certain offenders have since realized he is very adept).
He has always had a brain for business and has kept the family's investments under control since he was fourteen when their former investment advisor skedaddled with a large sum of their money. He started his own business when he was nineteen and has made his own fortune (much to his parent's dismay) in the years since.
His business is mostly tea based, but he never shies away from an interesting new venture. He is also a known patron of the performing arts with his favorite being opera.
His father has been ill for a period of two years now with something that affects his memory and Lady Agnes had given their eldest son, Percy's brother, James Charles Moore the obligations of Earl of Drogheda and use of the title.
Recently, Percy's brother has been struggling with a bout of sadness that seems to last eternally, and no one can seem to help him out of his low mood (OOC: it's depression, something with which I am intimately familiar). At a loss as to how to help their eldest and wishing to relieve some of James' reported fatigue, Lady Moore had been slowly giving Percy more and more of Jame's duties. James agrees that this is the best move and has petitioned that the title be given to Percy--something of which Percy is NOT a fan, however, he will do anything for family.
He realizes that with the Drogheda title comes matrimonial obligations as well and while it's not something he focuses on, he does welcome the idea of someone to share his home with.
He doesn't like his first name as it was his maternal grandfather's and that Percival was very strict and never kind. He doesn't mind being called Percy by family, but he will not easily forgive the slight of addressing him as Percival if you know better... and if you know him at all, he will make sure you know better. He prefers Andrew, but to him one full first (or in this case middle) name is more intimate than a shortened first (or middle) name or a name that includes a title or surname, so to friends he is Drew.
Title(s): (not officially) Earl of Drogheda and Viscount of Moore
Age/Birthdate: June, 19th, 1785
Build: slim, but not bony
Hair: blonde, but it's so light that some call it white
Eyes: dark gray/green
Orientation: pansexual (with a preference for masc-presenting, but if he connects with a fem-presenting person, he will absolutely pursue that connection)
Romance RP/Comfort Level: He likes connection and it would absolutely be a slow burn but if you are interested, he might be too.
Forms of Address:
I put this over in the Filling in Info Blanks thread and it's a lot so go check that out if you are so inclined.
He spends most of his time at his favorite of family houses: Killruddery House. He will occasionally venture to London for business or social engagements, but he is not a huge fan of more crowded places so he prefers the country. When he is in London he keeps his stays short and to the point and resides at Burgh House. His family's main home is Moore Abbey, but he has always found it less charming than Killruddery House.

They are all naturally sterile if neutering was not a thing yet because I don't know when that was invented and I want to be a responsible bean.
