    It is 1870. You little immigrant girl living with your parents, uncle, and 4 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 Explorer.

    Italy

    What is your name? Chiara Aurelia
    What are you like? Tomboyish, adventerous, kind
    How old are you? 11


    What are your parents names? (first, middle and last name must have origins in the country your family came from)
    Father: Dante Matteo Fabian
    Mother: Louisa Augusta Fabina

    What is your uncle's name? Monte Teodore Fabian "Monty"

    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.

    Clara Rosa (9) - girly, shy
    Amelia Maria (6) - creative, tomboyish
    Bruno Lorenzo (4) - protector of his sisters, brave
    Anna Eulalia (1) - cheeky, happy

    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 a couple of older kids picking on you and you've been pals ever since. What is his name?
    Barney Jude

    What is he like? Strong, quick, quiet, cool

    You, Barney and Clara 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....

    There is an accident in the factory where your father works. He gets killed.

    Because of your father's death your life is turned upside down. It is now impossible for your mother 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 11 you leave your family behind and join Barney on the streets of New York as a pickpocket.

    It is 1870. You are an 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 doctor. Your family are immigrants from England.

    My name is Emmeline Hermione Grey. I am eleven years old. I am a fairly smart child, at least for a child where I live, but I'm also very timid and quiet. I am very small and skinny, and I have wild reddish-brown hair and grey eyes.

    My parents' names are Anna Violet and Albert Hugh Grey, and my uncle's name is Edmund Nathaniel Grey, but we call him Ted.

    Because the adults work so much, your siblings are your best friends. They encourage you and entertain you and you love them dearly. Their names are Sophia Violet, Emily Victoria, Elizabeth Anna, Calvin Wesley and Noah Bennett Grey. They are nine, seven, seven, five and two respectively.

    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 a man trying to kidnap you and you've been pals ever since. His name is Jonah Sebastian Flynn. He's incredibly clever and has a sharp sense of humour. He teases you and Sophia endlessly, but it's in good fun.

    You, Jonah and Sophia 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....

    Dad and Uncle Ted are both murdered in a pub brawl.

    Because of the murders your life is turned upside down. It is now impossible for your mum 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 eleven, you leave your family behind and join Jonah on the streets of New York as a pickpocket.
