Byron / Britney is a very interesting character. He acts in a female persona twenty-four hours a day and loves to flirt with men. Beginning to pretend to be a woman at an early age, he has practiced extensively until his personality was perfect. At need, he can act witty, charming, or even innocent. In his role, he will not wear mens clothing under virtually any circumstances. Other than wearing body armor, he will never wear pants or trousers even female styles. Along with his vanity, the man has a fetish for both Jewelry and perfume. He also does not like doing anything which is considered labor type work. He also does not particularly like the wilderness but has some slender skills in the wilderness.
While he dress up as woman and acts feminine, he is heterosexual. He has a number of girlfriends although it takes an interesting woman to be attracted to him. Byron does not like fighting although his acting has gotten him into trouble several times. Guys have fallen into love, or lust might be more accurate, and have made times uncomfortable when he had to resist their advances. As well, some men who consider themselves macho have tried to beat him up. That is why he does know how to fight reasonably well.
He is extremely skilled at manipulating others and might very well end up getting adventurers into trouble or drawing them into his own troubles. As well, he keeps a keen ear on gossip and rumor. As such, he might accidently get himself into the troubles of a group. Still, unlike some saloon girls, he is not out to hurt anyone and prefers just to have fun.

Britney / Byron has always been extremely effeminate looking and is quite slender. He is a bit tall as a woman although not to the point where it attracts attention. While he does not have much in terms of chest, he has otherwise has a figure which can pass as the figure of a woman. As far as his face, he is also quite feminine with large lips and he has no Adam's apple which would make one think that he is reality a man. As a women, he is extremely attractive. He keeps his hair long, down to almost the small of his back. While his natural hair color is a chestnut brown, he dyes it a honey blond and styles it to be wavy. As well, he has brown eyes but prefers blue eyes and wears contacts to change his eye color. For cosmetics, he paints his lips bright red, puts rouge on his cheeks, and darkens around his eyes.
He almost always dresses in short gowns with wide skirts and petticoats, just shy of scandalous in how much they show, preferring rose and white as far as colors. They normally dip low to reveal the top of his chest. Under them, he likes to wear garter, stockings, and stiletto heels. To give him a more feminine figure, he wears a corset which presses him into an hourglass shape. He also pads his chest and the effect is that it looks like he has quite ample breasts.

Finally, he wears several rings and bracelets.

Byron's childhood began normally enough, the oldest child of a hard working rancher. His mother helped out in the farm and was almost as tough as her husband. Their son was always a disappointment, even a a child he was soft and one might say feminine.
His other siblings were much more like their parents. His parents tried to force him into fitting in but it never seemed to work. Always slender and never able to build any muscle. As well, he always hated manual labor. He hated working with the cattle and in the far in general.
As well, he liked to keep his hair long and took far more care of his appearance than anyone else in his family. The boy liked singing, especially female songs, and enjoyed dancing. All of this raised the ire of his parents. Finally, it caused him to get taunted and even sometimes abused by both his younger brothers and the other children of the town.
There was a true dark secret which he kept as well. He did like girls but he also liked to dress in the clothing of a woman. He often took his mother's clothing and got dressed in it. When he was sixteen years old, he was caught. He was whipped to almost an inch of his life.
When he recovered, he decided to run away. There was nothing for him and the other children would likely have become even more spiteful. He stole some of his mother's and began his life as Britney. Already pretty attractive as a girl, he got his first job as a tavern girl. He decided quickly that he liked the life of a saloon girl. He began to learn the fine art of how to flirt. Of course while other women offered additional services, he did not.
He was able to perfect his act as a woman more and more as time went on. Eventually, his act became almost perfect. As well, he improved his singing to the point where he got professionally skilled at it and also picked up the ability to play an acoustic guitar.
Sometimes, he would get tired of the town or bar which he worked at. In other cases, the bar manager has wanted services from him which he was unwilling to give. As such, even though he has no love of the wilderness, he has been forced to wander the wilderness from time to time.
