The Meijer family earned their last name on account of Zechariah’s father. A mayor in Bohemia (today the Czech Republic), the patriarch of the family had high ambitions for his sons and stern expectations of his daughters.

Raised traditionally Jewish, most Meijers probably feel uncomfortable if they skip Shabbat – but beyond that, their level of observance is open.

Currently, Zechariah has 1 elder brother (with the brother being 2nd born), 2 older sisters, 1 younger sister (born after him, the 4th born), and 3 younger brothers.

Face claims are suggestions rather than set in stone – it is also possible there may be some bastards, known or unknown (of any race).

Ruth Meijer
Ruth is the firstborn, and her mother’s favorite. At her age she has most likely married and had children, though alternatively she might be widowed. Ruth herself has a lot of free time and vacations frequently to visit her siblings and extended family. Her relationship with their father is likely cordial, but strained, given how much control he had over all her major life decisions (what hobbies to partake in, who to marry, etc.). Boisterous and extroverted, Ruth would be known to German circles as a singer, harp player, or for some other musical aptitude that puts her up front.
Grete Forst

Chaim Meijer
Being the firstborn son, he has had a lot of expectations to carry. Probably in regular correspondence with Zechariah, who is sympathetic but hey – better Chaim then him! Went to a Bohemian academy, possibly furthering education in Germany. May or may not be married. Presumably straight, possibly bisexual.
Adam Brody

Penina Meijer
Bookish and reserved, Penina would have married a library given the chance. She took the next best thing and married a gentleman of leisure who prefers traveling to staying home. Unfortunately for her, the husband occasionally drags her along on a trip – possibly to ‘ghost hunt’ in Moorland!
Olga Taussky-Todd

Nesah Meijer
Zechariah’s younger sister. He balked at the loss of attention with her birth. Whenever their father bemoans his sons falling short of his expectations, their mother is fond of saying “they take after you” whether it is true or not. They learned piano together, and Zechariah writes her frequently. Whether Nesah is an ‘old maid’ or married is currently open, though some siblings suspect she is keener on the fairer sex.
Alla Nazimova

Menachem Meijer
Old enough to feel like a challenge, Menachem probably got bullied by Zechariah and friends. Zechariah went to England specifically because Menachem had planned to study closer to home. There is some sibling rivalry here.

Did Zech ruin his life? Is he a career criminal who has decided Moorland is the perfect place to hide a body? You tell me.
John Francis Daley

Noah Meijer
Young enough to consistently be in a different ‘age group’ than Zechariah, he might have benefited from him defending the family honor by making the lives of mean kids picking on Noah unpleasant. That aside, Zech probably mainly found him annoying as kids. Does Noah look up to him? Does he want to get one over him? I could see a one-sided rivalry playing out here.
George Gerschwin

Uriel Meijer
The only child to have had the home to himself for any extensive period of time, his mother probably tried a little harder to shove this one out of the nest so she could turn his bedroom into a sewing room. What with his eldest brother being well out of school by the time it was his turn to choose, he may or may not have caught the tail-end of Zechariah’s education if he was intent on following. Doing so would have been extra incentive for Zech to eventually catch a carriage to the middle of fucking nowhere.

Helga Pedersdatter
Former brothel madame of Rose's Mollies. She and Mazarin formed a strong bond and remain close to this day. When he quit the business and left London, Helga sent him many letters wondering about his well being. Now that Mazarin has joined Tachibana's Glass Circus, she has decided to come straight down to Yorkshire to see what all the fuss is about, but mostly to check in on her old friend.
Gwendoline Christie
Desi Maharajah
Native to India. Arranged Marriage to Aahir. Both are gay, their families don't know. They keep appearance up in public, but their maid knows so she can keep defense and offense. They come to this land during monsoon season July to Sept. Whether she visits randomly other wise or decides to come during one of his work business trips to the area is up to you. Her persona in public vs private is also up to you. They do care deeply about each other, they are best friends, just not romantically into each other. She's the only one who knows about what Aahir went through wen he joined the army and the only one who knows how to handle him if he ends up in a night terror. PB is just a suggestion.
Deepika Padukone
Town Blacksmith
PB is up to you. I need Theadora's uncle. He and his wife took Thea in when she was orphaned. His wife died three years ago giving birth to their child. His wife's family wouldn't help support him, Thea, and his new baby. Rumors went around and he slowly became what they all thought of him. Thea now keeps the blacksmith shop a float while raising his daughter and keeping things neat and tidy. /div>
Face Claim
--- Brown
The younger sister of William Brown and the Nanny to Joseph O’Neal’s son Christoph. She has always hated the fact her family is poor and is trying to marry someone of wealth (perhaps one of the reasons she started working for Joseph). She is fairly much open in terms of… well everything – although she does tend to slack off with Christoph if there is a cute man of wealth around.
Early 20s
Open (Example Mia Wasikowska)
Fredrick Calloway
Harold's twin, unlike Harold he keeps himself clean shaven. They are from Louisiana. Father's the sheriff, mother's a teacher. He's engaged to the daughter of their former Governance , a VooDoo priestess. Her name is Marie. They are in an open relationship. He isn't as great with gun as Harold and his career is up to you. He'll pick on Harold, because he never thought he would have seen the day that Harold would ignore the glare of another woman. Also, Harold and Marie use to have a thing before Fredrick and Marie got serious
TIM ROZON - Clean shaven
Marie Boudreaux
=The daughter of Madam Boudreauz=x, voo doo priestess in New Orleans. When she was 18 and he was 22 Harold and Marie had an intense thing, closest thing to a relationship he has had until today. She is engaged but in an open relationship with Harold’s clean-shaven twin ‘Fredrick’, which I picture her calling him Rick or Red. Travels to this town Red when Madam Boudreaux gets Harold's letter about needing a box to capture a dark spirit. She takes after her mother.
Suggested: maisie richardson-sellers

Jedidiah Calloway
Just another Calloway siblings. There are 7 siblings total, but only three came on the trip with Marie after they received Harold’s letter, they decided to show up instead of sending a letter. Jed just invited himself on this trip. Occupation and Relationship status up to you.
Suggested: Tomy Hardy (with beard)
Roxanne Clementine Calloway
Just another Calloway siblings. There are 7 siblings total, but only three came on the trip with Marie Boudreaux after they received Harold’s letter, they decided to show up instead of sending a letter. Occupation and Relationship status up to you. She misses her brother Harold, which drove her to annoyingly begging to go with the others.
