RACHEL BERRY → TAKEN
Rachel Berry wants to be a star. She doesn’t care that she hasn’t landed a real role yet, or that Broadway is far off in New York. Nor does she care that no one outside of The Playboy Club has any idea of who she is. Rachel grew up with her Daddy Hiram and Uncle Leroy, and has always been one to support love regardless of what genders are involved. It’s her firm stance in hot button political issues and her opinionated nature that’s landed Rachel Berry blacklisted from more places than she would care to admit.
Jesse St. James was an old high school friend, someone who didn’t outright hate her over the top attitude at their small school. She ran into him a couple of months ago at a local coffee shop, and while the idea of being a bunny goes against everything Rachel believes in she knows that she needs money, and more importantly, connections, to achieve what she wants. And if that means betraying a person or five who stands in her way? Rachel Berry will do what needs to be done.

QUINN FABRAY → TAKEN
Quinn should have had it all; the Fabray’s were one of the wealthiest and most influential families in all of Chicago. But the pressure that Russell placed upon his youngest daughter was more than any normal person could handle, and no matter how often she succeeded, he expected more. Desperate for some sense of control Quinn began sleeping with her then boyfriend, Finn Hudson. It was a scandalous affair for someone of such social standing, but it was an easy enough secret to keep until she realized she was pregnant.
Riddled with guilt, Finn went to Russell and begged for forgiveness, but instead of receiving it, Quinn was cast out of her home and stripped of the family name. Without any where else to go she lived with Finn and his mother until a nasty fall down the stairs forced a miscarriage. Feeling broken, confused, and desperate to put her life back together, Quinn left the Hudson household and began working wherever she could manage to put herself through school and pay for her meager one bedroom apartment. But soon enough salvation came in the form of the rising Playboy Club. It was good money, a guaranteed living situation, and it allowed her to peruse her long time goal in writing for publication. So as soon as she was offered the job, she jumped at the chance to don the famous ears.

JESSE ST. JAMES → TAKEN
Jesse St. James is one of the most ambitious people you’ve ever met. He graduated from Columbia with a degree in business and management and has always dreamed big. It’s those dreams, along with his father’s money that made Jesse one of the cockiest bar owners in Chicago. And it’s that attitude, and the enemies that come with it, that had the same club burning to the ground a month after his twenty-seventh birthday.
Humiliated, Jesse tried to disappear and get as far away from the social arena as possible. The elder Jesse St. James refused, forcing his son to save face. Old friends with Heff, Jesse was a shoe-in for the position of manager. He’s a bit resentful at how grossly overqualified he is for the job, but regardless, he takes his work seriously and has no-nonsense policies when it comes to his bunnies. Jesse’s grown rather attached to his girls, even he makes it painfully obvious that he wants nothing aside from purely professional relationships.

BLAINE ANDERSON → TAKEN
Blaine Anderson is the new guy at Heff’s mansion. He recently started working at the bar just over a month ago, after going through a month of training and protocol work. He’s a full-time student, and only works the bar for rent and spending money. Living in the shadow of his semi-famous older brother, Blaine has a bit of a complex about feeling inferior and his life going nowhere. He tries to stay optimistic at all times, and has a young, naïve air about him that’s as refreshing as frustrating sometimes.
Blaine doesn’t like to think about his sexuality. Flirting is fun, even with girls, and that has to mean something. He’s convinced himself of his own ‘normalcy’ and refuses to take to anyone about his desires. Deep down, Blaine knows he isn’t straight. While he usually just tries to stuff it down or ignore it, it’s becoming harder and harder as the times around him start to change and the Playboy Club gets a new wave of regulars that turn more than his eyes.

SEBASTIAN SMYTHE → TAKEN
Sebastian Symthe is a flirt. Some would say he’s just as bad as Noah Puckerman, but where Puck is charming in his own coarse way, Sebastian is suave and manipulative, knowing exactly what to say. It’s not uncommon for him to be chatting up a skirt or three at the club on the nights he spends there, but Sebastian would never cheat on his girlfriend with one of the many girls. One, because of his wonderful girlfriend who would cut his balls off. And two, because he is one-hundred percent gay.
That’s a fact that’s unknown to almost everyone in his life, except his conquests. But Sebastian is careful, knowing who will turn on him for a quick dollar and who will keep their mouth shut and come back for more. He has to be careful, with his blooming law career and the nomination for state’s attorney just around the corner. Sebastian has a lot to hide, including some less than honorable work he did for the mob in his earlier years, but he’s confident that he has the intelligent and power to keep his past in the past and his private life private.

Tina’s looking to rally the people of Chicago, exposing the blatant sexism and oppression ruining the city.

SANTANA LOPEZ → TAKEN
The odds have been against Santana from the beginning. Life as a Puerto Rican descendant was harsh enough, never mind the fact that she was an ethnic woman in white suburbia, but on top of it all she was an avid lady lover as well. In her early years she did what she could to survive, using her sexual powress to gain her the advantages that her race and gender had denied her. But when her childhood friend, Adam Long, killed himself over homophobic boiling she’d had enough of hiding. Santana applied herself and attended Chicago State majoring in humanities before making her debut onto the political scene as a homosexual advocate.
With loans beginning to pile up, Santana applied to become a Playboy bunny during her Junior year and was immediately accepted into the ranks. She has been with the Playboy club since before its inception in February 1960 and is considered a veteran bunny. The club has become her foundation as she, with help from girlfriend Tina Cohen-Chang, attempts to push the Gay agenda forward.

BRITTANY S. PIERCE → TAKEN
Homosexuality, for the most part, had been seemingly nonexistent in the Pierce household. It wasn’t until little Jessica Wahler planted a big wet one on Brittany S. Pierce smackdab in the middle of Church did her parents favor outright expressing their hate. Growing up in rural Chicago, Brittany S. Pierce lived under the basic foundation that Jesus was everything. And while Brittany, to some extent, believed that, she couldn’t fully accept her parents view on the world as her own. Not when they were constantly degrading homosexuals in the name of God, and insulting Brittany over her preference.
As if being bisexual wasn’t enough, Brittany had to constantly live in the shadow of her all-merican brother, James Pierce; valedictorian, quarterback, and prom king. He was everything that her paarents wanted, and they made their preference more than obvious. But their lack of tolerance and harsh rules didn’t affect Brittany the way they had hoped. Instead of pushing her towards God, it only increased her love and devotion to music and jive. Brittany found the love that was so void at her house in every song and dance she could get her hands on. So with the ending of high school came Brittany’s dream career: the Chicago stages and streets. However, the stages of Chicago could only support Brittany so much without the rent on her flat becoming far too expensive. The opening of The Playboy Club was Brittany’s saving grace. Not only did it bring along green to strap in her purse, but it also gave her the much needed friendships she had felt deprived of back in her small town.
