    It is 1870. You little immigrant girl living with your parents, uncle, and 5 younger siblings in a dirty cramped tenement on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Life is miserable and frightening in the slums with so much death and disease running rampant. But you try your best to keep out of trouble hoping one day to leave the slum and become a (career...roll below).

    How old are you? 12

    What are your parents names? Giovanni Nico and Carlotta Bianca DeMartino


    What is your uncle's name? Salvatore "Sal" Renz DeMartino


    Because the adults work so much, your siblings are your best friends. They encourage you and entertain you and you love them dearly. What are they're names? (for each one roll for gender, even=girl and odd=boy. Then roll for ages, children with the same number are multiples. Names come from :http://www.behindthename.com/top/lists/ud/1880. Describe them too, if you like.)
    Siblings: Ida Florence-9, Arthur James-8, George Clarence-6, Mabel Alice-2, Bessie Ella-1

    You also have a best friend from the Five Points District. He is a slick little pickpocket who, as far as you know, has been an orphan his whole life. You met him after he saved you from loose dogs chasing you and you've been pals ever since. What is his name? Sully Jed Moe.

    What is he like? Bright red hair, green eyes.

    You, Sully and Ida make the best of life in the slums by doing tricks in the streets for pennies and exploring the streets of New York in your spare time. You are happy to have such a large, loving family and the freedom to do as you please. But then, tragedy strikes....

    What happens (roll)?
    5 or 6: Your father and uncle are murdered in a pub brawl.

    Because of your father and Uncle Sal's death, your life is turned upside down. It is now impossible for your mother to feed and clothe you and your sibling(s) on an immigrants wages. You decide it would be best if you, as the oldest, try to make your own way in the world. So at the age of 13 you leave your family behind and join Sully on the streets of New York as a pickpocket.
    Boys: Maxwell, Bennett, Oliver, Elliott and Archer.

    Girls: Rose, Juliet, Aria, Cora and Scarlett


    Sorry for any random spellings. I'm probably on my nook!
