Name: Nathaniel Grey
Occupation: Blacksmith Apprentice
Alignment: Although he has lived in England for his entire life, he holds no love for the upper class citizens that control the government.
Where are you from? Born in London, England and has never left the city limits
How steeped are you in your people’s culture? Raised in streets, Nathaniel has little access to the higher culture of his society.
What’s your social standing? His family, keeping mostly to themselves, is not well known, but Nathaniel’s well meaning manner makes him a well liked member in his community. However, those who do not know him as well tend judge him on the behavior of his father, a drunk with a quick temper.
Political and Religious stance Although Nathaniel holds no love for the government, he does have a deep devotion to his religion. Raised as a member of the Roman Catholic church, Nathaniel is forced to live this part of his life in secret. Being a part of a minority, and a prosecuted one at that, he feels much more connected to the people of his own religion. No one has yet found out about his family’s religious beliefs, but he feels like it is only a matter of time before someone notices them slipping away to attend a secret Sunday Mass.
Family: Nathaniel came from a family of six, but the number has since decreased to four. The oldest child of Thomas and Anne Grey, Nathaniel has always looked over his younger siblings: two brothers, James and Benjamin, and his sister, Sarah. These duties increased when his mother died of an unknown sickness when he was fourteen years of age and his father turned to drinking soon afterwards. Sadly, his youngest sibling, Benjamin, died a mere three months later in a freak carriage accident.
What have been your major goals til now? At the age of nineteen, Nathaniel is already taking care of two younger sibilings and attempting to keep is constantly drunk father out of jail. Realistically, Nathaniel is looking at continuing life as a blacksmith, as there are not many other options available to him. However, he often dreams of somehow getting passage for himself and his family to the colonies in the New World, which hold promise of religious freedom and adventure. These are just dreams to Nathaniel and he does not expect them to ever come true.
Who have been your biggest influences til now? Before he started drinking his grief away, Nathaniel had always looked up to his father, Thomas Grey. HIs mother and the priest of the church that he attends have also had some influence over his life. More recently, the man that he works for, Mr. Fellingsworth, as well as his adventurous and rebellious friend Oliver and the more reserved Sarah have began to have more influence over him.
Yet to come…
