Addie Mae ThompsonAge:
Addie Mae, before she made the mature decision to become a slave, was a spritely, active young lady. She would spend her days at the barn instructing children and fellow riders, training horses and helping out around the farm. She would carry on conversations with complete strangers, as they felt she was a good listener and someone safe they could discuss things with. Addie Mae, being from the South, always had a sweet way about her, but wasn't afraid to use her tongue to strike you down. She would never say anything bad about anyone unless she sought to help them change their ways, and in return, was manipulated by her friends at times. She was almost too trusting at times, never wanting to see the bad in people, and in return, had her heart broken several times by boys she'd dated. Addie Mae is a passionate girl, even in her slave status. She loves hard, hurts hard and isn't afraid to let you know it. This has proven to be difficult to her slave trainers to tame her, and it is something Addie Mae is fiercely proud of. She has a great love of animals, but more dogs and horses hold her heart than any man, woman or child could.Bio:
Born in 2012 to parents rich in tradition and money, Addie Mae grew up on an equestrian farm just outside of Shreveport, Louisiana. She grew up going to a private all girls school, and excelled at history and English, graduating at the top 5% of her class at the age of 17. Throughout her schooling, the world outside her perfect bubble waged on, women and men fighting and grappling over who had the better hand. The men won out and slowly - though apparently very rapidly for some - women were losing their voice in society. More and more women were selling themselves to the slave markets, unable to afford the grotesque taxes placed on the women's heads. Addie Mae's father, a rather successful politician, vowed that he would have the money to never send his girl or his wife to the market. With that promise in mind, Addie Mae was sent to community college (for fear that a regular university would not accept her) working towards a major of English so she could be an editor for a publishing company. Quite literate, very smart and sharp tongued, Addie Mae felt on top of the world.
All her life, she was raised and blessed around horses. Her first horse, a pudgy pony named Crackers (innocently named Crack by Addie Mae) was given to her at age four, and she won her first blue ribbon at the age of five. This set her into a whirlwind of training, shows and medals won as she rose in the ranks of horse showing and finally competing in dressage. As the years went on, she found it harder and harder to show, seeing as how her mother and father were worried something would happen to her at a show without their knowledge. Instead of competing out of state as she'd done, she showed locally in dressage shows, earning points and ribbons as she'd always done.
The fateful day came when her father and mother sat her down and spoke to her in grave tones. Her father had made some poor choices in investments and they would have to sell the farm. They didn't reveal that she could be sold at a high price and possibly save the farm, but after overhearing the conversation between her parents one night, Addie Mae made the decision to sell herself, so that her parents could keep the farm and business running. She had her father sign over the contract and several days later, a man came to pick her up and sent her to a training facility in Texas where she spent the next six months learning how to be submissive and service her masters.
This, however, did not go over well, for a lady like Addie Mae always heard the words "please" and "thank you" and "ma'am" and proudly vocalized how belittling it was to be subjected to this "torture". The trainers told her she had no idea what she was getting into, and her feisty behavior would be quickly whipped out of her if she wasn't careful.
