GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

Character Name: Valerie Sutton

Gender: Female

Age: 26

Birthplace/World: Chicago, Illinois

Occupation: Small Business Owner – A bath salts/lotions/etc type place

PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

General Appearance: Straight brown hair with a few highlights. Blue eyes. Petite at 5’3″ with an average build body and curvy figure. Complains all the time about petite women’s clothing being made for stick-thin teenagers and not full grown women. Prefers classic city life fashion.

Strengths: Very healthy and takes good care of herself.

Weaknesses: Not a lot of physical strength.

MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

Current Goal/Purpose: Run a successful business and remain independent from her family. Meet someone nice and have a family of her own in the future.

Talents: Valerie has a nose for scents and makes good use of it with the natural products she makes. She’s pretty good at cooking without recipes. Great with numbers.

Inabilities: She can’t drive and has no license, so she always takes public transportation. She also cannot swim and refuses to even try it. Personally feels as if she doesn’t handle violent or abusive people very well, nor intense situations.

Fears: Violent/aggressively angry people, Guns (She just doesn’t like them.), serial killer flicks (it’s too real!), and what her life might be like if she caved in to her mother and joined the family business.

General Personality: Confident and relaxed, Valerie is the kind of girl you see and know immediately that she has her life together. She is what you would call a Social Introvert, in the way that she enjoys chatting and spending time with people, but in a very limited fashion. Val likes the occasional get together, interacting with her customers and so on, but at the end of the day she wants to spend her time enjoying a quiet evening alone. Val is incredibly independent. She likes to do things herself and her own way, and can be stubborn when it comes to accepting help from others even when she needs it. She values honesty, but the people that try to say “I’m just being honest” as an excuse for being rude irritate her. There is no room in her life for unpleasant people, and if she doesn’t care for you, she has no problem telling you exactly why and booting you out of her presence.

Inner Personality: Val is pretty much a seeing-is-what-you-get kind of person. Deep down, she misses her family and wishes she could be a bigger part of their lives (and vice versa), but can’t abide by their dangerous lifestyle. She has a hard time connecting with people beyond a shallow surface level because of trust issues and a few disastrous situations. She doesn’t want to be taken advantage of or made a fool of, and she is also afraid that she can’t handle it all. Val displays more confidence and fearlessness than she believes she has.

Secret: Doesn’t exactly let the beans spill that she’s a mob daughter.

HISTORIC BACKGROUND

General History: Val’s mother, Jacquelyn Sutton is a wicked old broad that does bookkeeping for the local mobsters, along with her mousy husband Harold who is an accountant at a small firm. She has an older brother (Mattie) who spends his time doing “dirty work” or gambling his money away and a younger sister (Tori) that is dumb as a post, but somehow still manages to wrap anyone she talks to around her finger.

Valerie refuses to interact with any of these people, much to the chagrin of her mother, whom tried very hard to raise and groom her middle child to one day take over the business. There were several scares when Val was younger that turned her off on the whole thing, so as soon as she graduated High School, she moved out of the family home.

Living on her own was tough and she made a few blundering mistakes. Including trusting the wrong sort of people, spending a few months homeless, and a brief stint posing for nude photos. But she managed to work her way through business school and fund her own small business.

Present Life: Valerie is doing fairly well for herself with her business. It’s turning a good profit, she lives comfortably, and her life is just about where she wants it.

Historic Notes:
– Short time in foster care while parents were under arrest/investigation

– Shoot out with lots of guns at some big party and someone died. She doesn’t know or remember what happened there, and has not liked guns ever since.

– Huge things in the news dealing with a local mobster, and her mother was part of the investigation.

– Older brother lands himself in jail for car stealing and nearly killing someone.

– had a shitty abusive boyfriend shortly after moving out because she couldn’t recognize his intentions and then didn’t know how to get out of it. (smooooth manipulative and controlling “nice guy”) Eventually ran away.

– brief few months being homeless after bad boyfriend

– Does nude photos for quick easy money

– starts business school

– opens her business
