Beautiful People: Mim's Childhood

Hi everyone,

This is a rather rushed post because I just got back from an amazing camp last night and almost forgot about my blog.

I'm doing Beautiful People again, this time about a sweet red-haired brigand girl named Mim.

What is her first childhood memory?

  The time her half-sister Elind arrived in tears and started living with them permanently.

What were their best and worst childhood experiences?

  She has fond memories of harvest feast in the town where being poor didn't matter. And also the time when she was given a new dress. The worst time would be just after her mother and uncle died of the coughing sickness. She and Elind almost starved before Elind finally gave in and married.

What was their childhood home like?

  A ramshackle cottage on the outskirts of the town of Jarrah. it was a dirty noisy place, often dangerous too.

What’s something that scared them as child?

  The men that her uncle would hang around with.

Who did they look up to most?

  Her mother. She was a wonderful woman who always made things come out alright and kept Mim safe.  She wouldn't let people impose on her.

Favourite and least favourite childhood foods? 

  Favourite food is pies; least favourite is watery soup. 
If they had their childhood again, would they change anything?

  She would have had a father.

What kind of child were they? 

  She was very wild adventurous and warm-hearted. Making friends, but scaring their mothers.

What was her relationship to their parents and siblings like?

  She loved and then missed her mother, feared her uncle and never knew her father. Elind was almost a second mother, but she saw her as being weaker than her own mother. Her other half sister was someone she barely knew existed and never wanted to meet.

What did they want to be when they grew up, and what did they actually become?

  She hoped to become a maid and work herself into a better life. She became a brigand instead.

And that's the basics of Mim. If you ask me any questions in the comments I'll answer them for you.
