    It is 1870. You little immigrant girl living with your parents, uncle, and 6 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 Business owner.

    Sean and Aoife Byrne


    What is your uncle's name? Aengus O’Conner (Gus)

    Lillian - 8
    Charlie - 8
    Benjamin - 4

    What is he like? Brave, smart, outgoing, and polite

    You, Ethan and Cora 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 or mother) works. It either kills them or leaves them crippled.

    Because of the factory accident 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 15 you leave your family behind and join Ethan on the streets of New York as a pickpocket.
