PSYCHOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS

Goal/Purpose: Brooklyn just wants to find her place as a person and in life. She knows what she is expected to do, but she’s not sure if that’s what she wants for herself.

Aspirations: ??? Right now she has none.

Fears: Being one of those people that is never really happy. Anything with a stinger.

Quirks: She will talk to her sheep all day long. She talks to sheep more than she talks to people.

Virtues: Ask for Brooklyn’s help and she will move heaven and earth to give it. She won’t judge, she won’t ask questions. She’ll just be there for you for whatever you need.

Vices: She doesn’t want to argue or disagree with someone and then risk that person getting upset/not liking her for it. This gets her in to situations she doesn’t want to be in.

Fondest Memory: A moment at the coast of Spain where she was sitting on some hotel balcony just watching the waves hit the beach. She just finished posting up a little article of the prior day’s adventure touring the city streets. A warm cup of coffee in her hands. Soft music played from her laptop and a nice breeze blew through the air. For the first time in a really long time she felt at peace. Normal. Like everything would be okay.

Painful Memory: The sudden death of her brother and his family is the worst. Specifically sitting in the hospital with the rest of her family waiting to hear news.

Biggest Regret: She is constantly regretting things, she can’t pick a biggest one.

Secret: ACCIDENTALLY MARRIED.

Perceived by Others: Her friends think she is a pushover. They try to encourage her to speak up for herself (some by example of getting her in to trouble). Before her Europe trip no one really wanted to listen to her talk because all she had to talk about was sheep and her family. The only time she seemed to be any fun was when she was drunk because then she’d actually speak what was on her mind and be a lot more open to fun suggestions. Those that have been following Brooklyn’s Europe Travel Blog are actually really excited to see her again and see how much she’s evolved.

Brooklyn’s family have always viewed her as an odd duck. Most of the family have their heads on straight, know who they are, what they want, and go after it. Brooklyn gets lost in the noise and no matter how much they try to point her in the right and correct directions, she has been resistant. They always thought she was just going through a rebellious phase, but when it continued even after college everyone assumed she would eventually grow up and be the Spinster Mulligan. After her Elder brother’s death and she left the country, her dad was REALLY PISSED.

HISTORY

Brooklyn has always been a good girl. A reliable girl. A do what is expected girl. At first it was fine. She was making her family happy. Getting all of those good grades, having the hobbies they thought she should have, working where they wanted her to work, etc. The older she got the more off-kilter she felt. Brooklyn wants everyone to be happy, but somewhere along the way she forgot to find out what makes HER happy. Everything that made up who she was just seemed like stuff other people TOLD her she was.

By the time she realized this, she thought she was too old to change anything. Her life was set. Around this same time her older brother’s friend Jack was having a bro-crisis. Denver was having a kid and didn’t have a lot of time for his friend anymore. Brooklyn and Jack started hanging out. He introduced her to people she otherwise may have never talked to. When she wasn’t at home being the Sheep Girl, she at least got to go out, drink and do new things. Slowly she was getting an idea of who “Brooklyn” was.

A year ago her older brother, his wife, and kids died in a freak car crash. The family was completely devastated and Brooklyn took it really hard. Her big brother was THE GUY. He was this perfect, bigger than life personality who had everything under control, made things better, just an all around amazing dude. Now he and his family were gone for no good reason.

Brooklyn couldn’t deal with it. She packed up all her stuff and left the country. Unlike the rest of her family, she didn’t have a husband, kids, or fancy job keeping her in place. She didn’t want her life to be the rinse and repeat of just trying to make it through another same old day. Taking inspiration from an adventurous Great Uncle, Brooklyn went on a tour of Europe. She wrote about her daily explorations and little adventures in a travel blog. She met a guy and had a short and bittersweet romance.

Almost a year after she left, she has been summoned home. Her grandfather has taken ill, which means her father is stepping in to the role as the family leader. And that means she as the eldest living heir must take over her father’s duties. Brooklyn was NEVER meant to play this role and she is not prepared in the slightest. There are a lot of expectations and it’s a lot of pressure. Everyone is really putting the squeeze on her to meet a nice young man and get hitched. Have some babies. She is WAY over due, she’s getting way too old to find a guy and her uterus is going to dry up. There is age-old family tradition to follow.
