The first half of my RPG character's background.


Leah Gregory was born in Boston in 1897, the only child of wealthy parents. She was a quiet child by nature, and not given to excess of vice, so her parents felt secure in indulging her occasional whim. One such was when she was ten years old and read the story of Rapunzel of the first time. She was struck by the tragedy wrought by the evil witch, and she vowed to grow her hair as long as Rapunzel’s as a tribute to the tragic heroine. Her mother laughed and agreed on one condition – it was her responsibility alone. Leah’s grandmother taught her how to care for and braid her lustrous brown locks, and Leah set to with a will.

Mrs. Sarah Johnson, Leah’s grandmother, had been the head of the nursing school at the local hospital for many years, and saw women in her home on the side. Her daughter Miriam grew up on female medical prowess, and followed in her mother’s footsteps. She became as a nurse in Sarah’s school and then the hospital for nearly ten years, completely absorbed in her work and vocation. In 1889, the world turned upside down. The aliens arrived, bringing with them radical changes and technological improvements across all aspects of life. In every profession the elitists were struggling to adapt, walls against all manner of people were coming down, and in the medical field, women were battering at the doors to claim their rightful due – an equal standing with men.

Self-styled Forum Grandmother, because I hand out nicknames and hugs whether you want them or not. ^_^

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this and all is mended...
Give me your hands if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.
