Background

Sebastien was the third child of Lord and Lady Grantham. Unlike his siblings, Bastien was not a fan of getting dirty in the foundries or of becoming a knight. In fact, he actively worked harder to avoid the foundry than he would have worked had he just simply went. It suited him, however. He was the quiet pretty boy who preferred simply listening quietly and observing everything going on around him.

As he grew, he discovered he enjoyed being the center of attention, but only when he asked for it, and only when it was at the cost of others so that the attention deflected. Bastien found his passion in journalism, investigating and sharing the secrets of others. Unfortunately, the people of Ignis generally have little interest in the tabloids, so even when he was hard at work assembling newsletters for the foundry workers or school papers, his audience was quite small.

When Bastien was 17, his older brother Zayne was killed in an accident at the foundry. Bastien was there that day, working on a video report for school. He captured the entire thing on video, filming his own brother's death. As the foundry workers went into panic and emergency procedures began, he slipped away, telling no one he was there. He's never told anyone, nor has he shown the video to anyone, and he still has nightmares about the incident.

The family was turned upside down, and Bastien was quietly dealing with his own trauma from the event. Instead of turning to his family, he reacted like the kid he was, and turned away. As his sister Ashleigh began returning home, Bastien left, something his parents have never understood, nor forgiven.

Bastien went to Landing, where a rather large "donation" from Bastien's savings account greased the right palms to get him an internship on the Haven News Network. For the last four years, he's been working hard, building a name for himself and a reputation amongst the other network journalists. After putting in his time and proving his skills off screen under Sandra "Perky" Perkinson at the Nobility and Intrigue desk, Bastien has finally reached his goal of being on camera. Bastien has been given his own segment on Perky's show, a segment called Noble Watch. Noble Watch focuses on the nobles of Haven and everything they are doing that the average viewer wants to know… and then some! The gossip of betrothals, fashion and everyday doings are left to Perky, but Noble Watch focuses on scandal and confrontation.
