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? Caine Findlay and Maura Kathleen Kirkpatrick

    What is your uncle's name? Morrigan Neal Kirkpatrick, but everyone calls him Moe

    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?
    Siblings: Carrie Mae [10]
    John Henry [6]
    Lucy Elizabeth [5]
    Walter Thomas [3]
    Frank Andrew [2]

    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 hunger when he bought me a piece of bread and you've been pals ever since. What is his name? Jasper Beck

    You, Jasper and Carrie 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?
    5 or 6: Your father and uncle are murdered in a pub brawl.

    Because of the pub brawl your life is turned upside down. It is now impossible for your mom to feed and clothe you and your siblings 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 Jasper on the streets of New York as a pickpocket.
