    It is 1870. You little immigrant girl living with your parents, uncle, and 3 younger siblings in a dirty cramped tenement on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

    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.

    It is 1870. You little immigrant girl living with your parents, uncle, and 7 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.

    Your family are immigrants from another country. Where are they from (roll)?
    5 or 6: Germany

    What is your name? Elizabeth Amelia Hansen
    What are you like? A fearless free spirit. She likes to collect and examine nature, such as bugs and flowers, much to her parents dismay. She is constantly misunderstood.
    How old are you? 11

    What are your parents names? Carl Edgar Hansen & Ada Marlene Hansen

    What is your uncle's name? Leonard Barthel Hansen, nicknamed Leo

    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:
    Eveline Rose Hansen - 8 years old. She's an innocent little thing and hates getting into trouble. She likes everything to be clean, proper, and in order. Though she is only 8, she loves to play in the kitchen and cook things with a peculiar taste. Nicknamed Eve.
    George Alexander Hansen - 7 years old. He loves competing against his siblings in activities such as "Who can run the fastest?" "Who can jump the most?" and such. He's constantly getting on everyone's nerves, though he can't help his combative nature.
    Frederick Willam Hansen - 6 years old. He's quiet, shy, and a bit more reserved. He loves science. He is usually called Freddy.
    Chloe Helene Hansen - 6 years old, twin of Freddy. Unlike her brother, she is an extrovert and makes friends quiet easily. She idolizes her eldest sister, Liz, and the two often scavenge for bugs together.
    Calvin Emmett Hansen - 5 years old. He usually is secretive and never expresses his emotion, so no one quit knows what Cal is thinking.
    Linda Angeline Hansen - 2 years old. She takes after her father and is a daddy's girl. She's a chatty toddler, though no one can decipher what she is saying.
    Henry Edward Hansen - 1 year old. The baby of the family, he is adored and given the most love. Hopefully he won't grow up to be a spoiled brat.

    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 falling into a random ditch and you've been pals ever since. What is his name? Archibald Quincy Watts, nicknamed Archie.

    What is he like? He's a fast talking short fellow blessed with the great skill of analyzing. He has a sarcastic humor, and though he is a little thief, he does have a good heart.

    You, Archie and Chloe* 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)?
