    5 or 3: Lower Class

    If you rolled Lower Class begin here

    It is 1911 and you are a sixteen year old girl named Juliet Cecilia Sawyer from a poor family in Boston, Massachusetts. You live with your mother, Primrose Rebecca Sawyer and father Seamus Cormac Sawyer and 5 siblings. Your mother is sick with consumption and can barely work and your father has a bad leg that prevents him from finding good work. You do your best to be useful and help the family, but you secretly long to escape Boston and seek adventure and excitement.

    Your Name (First and Middle): Juliet Cecilia

    Hometown (Roll)
    6.) You Choose

    2. Boy; Paul James Sawyer
    3. Girl; Ada Blanche Sawyer
    4. Girl; Viola Katherine Sawyer
    5. Girl; Flora Lucille Sawyer

    Although your father thinks you are the most beautiful girl in the world, you don't think so. Your blond hair is decent and your brown aren't too close together and your olive complexion never blemishes but still you feel there is nothing striking about you. But you are very good at drawing. You think you would make an excellent artist if only you had the money and the freedom to pursue it. Still, you and your immigrant best friend Emilia Costa manage to save part of your weekly wages to put towards your dreams, of leaving Boston and becoming an artist.

    Both of you have been saving your money since you started working. A week before school starts in September 1911 you both finally save enough money to buy a steerage ticket on a ship headed for Europe. You and Emilia decided to forget finishing school and head to Paris where maybe you can finally realize your dreams of becoming an artist.
