Great grandfather was cursed by his first wife because he cheated. He married his mistress. ended up divorced and married a few more times.

The curse was by his blood, so all his offspring have inherited the curse.

His grandson knocked up a girl in his teens and they got married because it was “the right thing to do”. These are Harper’s parents.

No one in the family knows the curse is a real thing, they just believe it’s a family joke. The curse is a very strong bad luck curse that triggers after happy moments.

Harper handles her bad luck gracefully and is determined to prove that the family curse stuff is nonsense and that it’s all about how you handle yourself and situations. She doesn’t allow bad events to discourage her. (At least on the surface.)

She does a lot of volunteer work at the local homeless shelter. Something that hits close to home for her because of family problems.

She works two other jobs. Maid Service in a Motel and Waitress at a strip bar. The intent was to spend it on schooling for a real career, but she’s just ended up spending it all at the shelter or giving it to her family. Especially her brother and two nephews. Harper is always willing to do extra side jobs for cash.

Has a soft spot for kids, animals and old people. She loves PEOPLE. Their lives and their stories!

Believes romance is for fairy tales and movies. That kind of stuff doesn’t happen to real people. Love, yes. Moments of kismet, staring in to each other’s eyes, being gooey and mushy? No way. She’s never been able to connect with someone that way before.

Harper fell in with some bad people and ended up in a gang as a teenager and did some shitty things. One of which involved almost getting somebody killed. It’s a time of her life she regrets and has been trying to make up for since. This causes some issues when people from that time period show up again.
