Name:Catherine Victoria Jones Age:Twenty-five Sex:Female Height:5' 6" Weight:130lbs Sexual Orientation:Heterosexual Occupation:N/A Religious Preference:Christian Generation:4th Gen Welsh Social Class:Upper Class Ethnicity:Welsh Vice:Pride ; Lust, when she's been drinking ; Stubbornness ; Envy(Jealousy) Virtue:Compassion ; Forgiveness Patience ; Determination Short Bio:Catherine comes from a long line of Welsh. She's a 4th generation, meaning her great grandparents were born in Wales, but then they moved here where they gave birth to her grandmother, who met her grandfather who was also Welsh. Then her grandparents gave birth to her father who met her mother, whom was also Welsh. So as can be seen, she's pretty much purebred Welsh. Though, she does know the language, she prefers to use English, having been raised in America her whole life. Her father is a Big Wig. He's one of the biggest CEOs in America and pretty much keeps his daughter by his side ever since her mother died just two years after Catherine was born. Her father did of course hire a nanny to try and teach her the ways of the women of the time, but when Catherine turned seventeen, she didn't need that nanny anymore and was a very well behaved young woman. Her father is so protective he hasn't even started thinking about a marriage for her yet, and most fathers, by this time, would have. Now that Catherine is older, she's starting to discover that she can't be by her father's side all the time if she's going to survive and she's starting to rebel a bit behind her father's back.

Name:James Brian Age: 26 Sex: Male Height: 5"7 Weight: 150 lbs Sexual Orientation: HeterosexuaI Occupation: Police Officer Religious Preference: Puritan Generation: 2nd Gen Irish Social Class: Middle Class Ethnicity: American Vice: Workaholic, Avarice Virtue: Compassionate, Selfless Short Bio: James Brian was originally born James O'Brian to a family of Irish immigrants. His father came over as a teenager and his mother was born in America to two Irish immigrant parents. His grandfather changed the families' last name when they immigrated, dropping to "O" in order to allow them to more easily assimilate into the American lifestyle. At first, James' father worked at a factory running the machines, but as time went by, he was able to separate himself from the other immigrants and soon became manager of the factory floor and then through a** kissing and conforming, became manager of the plant. This caused many of the immigrants to become rather disdainful of the Brian family, it was as if they were trading away what was left of their heritage. James grew up playing with Connor, Casey, and many other Irish children, but as he got to highschool, their paths separated and James, who did not speak the Irish language natively and no longer had traces of his accent, joined the police force. He works under Detective Jason Hayward and hopes one day to be a detective like him. He has no plans for love... but who knows what life has in store.

Name:Connor Foley Age:25 Sex:Male Height:5”6’ Weight:130 lbs Sexual Orientation:Heterosexual Occupation:Railroad Worker Religious Preference:Catholic Generation:First Gen Irish Social Class:Lower Class Ethnicity:Irish Vice:Wrath, Avarice Virtue:Brave, Caring Short Bio:Connor Foley is the oldest of two boys born in Wicklow, Ireland in 1866. Since his parents were married, the couple had been scrounging and saving trying to gain as much as possible to come to America, famine raging in their country. Connor barely survived infancy. Connor and his family finally immigrated when he was nine years old and vividly remembers his homeland, unfortunately, memories aren’t too good. In America, his family was owned by the mines; they lived in the workers’ quarters and only earned the worthless workers’ currency. This made it impossible for them to ever gain any real wealth. The smoke from the mines began to make his father sick as well as the unsanitary living conditions of their quarters, as a result, he was unable to work as needed. This caused them to get kicked from the quarters. Connor’s father had to get them money somehow and started working at a clothes factory. One of the only immigrants to ever see the King of Expansion, he jumped at the first opportunity to speak with him. He begged for some help and the King took pity on him and his family giving him 200 dollars to get his medicine and help his family. Although, when time came to pay it back, he of course didn’t have the money. He was shot in the head, in his home in front of Connor who had pulled away from the hiding spot with his mother and younger brother to help, but he arrived just in time to see the bullet force itself through his skull. The day of his father’s funeral, Connor ran away and met a little girl named Tabby. Both had suffered loss and the two quickly became friends. Although Connor has a secret hate burning inside him festering and growing. He wants nothing more than to get revenge on the man with the tall hat and cane, if he ever gets to see him. He currently works in construction. Post Colors: Dark Green Sea Green Username: A Painted Image Pic:
Name:Casey Foley Age:23 Sex:Male Height:5”4’ Weight:120 lbs Sexual Orientation:Heterosexual Occupation:Railroad Worker Religious Preference:Catholic Generation:First Gen Irish Social Class:Lower Class Ethnicity:Irish Vice:Pride, Envy Virtue:Compassionate, Moral Short Bio:Casey is the younger or the two Foley brothers. He doesn’t really remember Ireland as well as his brother but was always told great stories, still America, while requiring hard work to stay afloat, at least had the resources they needed to survive. Casey never saw what happened to his father, his mother covering his eyes when leading him out of the apartment, however, he was later told. Casey seems as if he is much more willing to accept injustice, that he just takes what life throws at him without a second look, but truly, he is one of the deepest thinkers out there, constantly trying to figure out what he thinks about the state of things around him and how he can work to influence change, if he even can to begin with. Casey and Connor have always been close playing and then working side by side until Connor introduced Tabby into their lives. Casey had always had a small crush on Tabby. He found her strong and beautiful, but she was not interested in either of them in that way and always seemed to be a closer friend to Connor. Casey rationalized it away to keep himself from feeling bad or dejected: it was alright, Connor knew her longer. Casey loves to read and is constantly trying to expand his mind, getting his exercise from the hard labor on the railroad. Casey wishes he could learn more about the world, perhaps become a philosopher or a historian, maybe a writer, but he knows these goals are farfetched and most likely impossible, instead he continues his work, reads in his free time(as well as makes visits to the bar with his brother)… and continues to dream.
