Name: Mary “Molly” Kelleher

Age: 20

Sex: female

Job in respective group ( IRA, British Army, Civilian : IRA, Cumann na mBan

Weight: 130

Height: 5’6

Hair color: long silky black curls

Eye color: china blue

Physical description: She’s a regular Snow White with her fair skin and stunningly red little mouth, she’s rather buxom, but not heavy in the leas, in fact she prides herself on her tiny waist, she’s the kind of girl you always have to look twice at when she passes you on the street.

Background and basic personality: This rose has thorns though, she’s stubborn, head-strong, and what’s more, she’s educated, so she usually knows what she’s talking about and means exactly what she says. Her mother died when she was four and while her father, a wealthy merchant, gave her every luxury she ever desired, he was also usually absent or preoccupied. She was thus raised by a nurse who sang her all the old Irish folk-ballads and told her tales of the week folk, and the ancient times when Ireland was a proud nation. Later many of her tutors also had very Republican sympathies which they had no qualms in expressing to their young and impressionable pupil. Mr. Kelleher had no idea that his young and pretty daughter was being raised up into fierce young rebel. When Molly finally did make her opinions known, at fifteen, her father threatened to throw her out and then sent her away to county Clare to live with her very strict, and very unionist Aunt. When Molly was eighteen her father died, leaving his entire estate to Molly. She defied her Aunt and returned at once to Dublin. She hired two advisors, one a former tutor and turned her father’s company over to them, provided they present her with a bi-weekly report. She then presented a large portion of her inheritance to the leaders of the Republican movement and joined the Cumann na mBan and Citizen Army.

Notes: A close friend of Countess Constance Markievicz.

Name: Anna Duffy

Age: 20

Sex: female

Job in respective group: IRA, Cumann na mBan

Weight: 114

Height: 5'3

Hair color: Long & red, tied back.

Eye color: Dark green

Physical description: From looking at old photographs, people say Anna looks identical to her mother - long hair, seductive green eyes, with a gentle figure that's worked in her favor many times. She's taken to wearing the mens' clothes from time to time when she can easily swipe them - not an easy task, but worth it in the end. She differs in only one way from her mother - her hair is long and red, which is extremely unusual considering most of her relatives have dark hair. She keeps a family heirloom tied around her neck - a bullet from the Mexican-American war that struck her grandfather, who survived and kept it on a chain.

Background and basic personality: She has Ireland in her blood and the American spirit in her soul. Her mother, Laura Duffy, was half-Irish on her father's side and her grandfather was Irish as well. The fond tales she heard from both of them, and her grandfather, made her long for the emerald shores. On her eighteenth birthday, she stowed away and arrived to find the beautiful land under siege. She joined the Cumann na mBan and works to carry correspondance. Her Brighelm blood makes her good at hiding letters and keeping secrets. And, according to her grandmother, good at bewitching men.

Notes: Heh heh... *hides from Lee* This is like starting the Civil War RP all over again.
