Name: Julie Whitcomb.
Trainer or Inmate: Inmate.
If Inmate brief description of crime: Petty theft, nothing too expensive.
Personality: Julie is friendly once she gets to know someone, but she can be shy at first. She used to be more readily accepting of people, but circumstances have made her more wary over the last couple of years.
Background: Julie had a happy and normal childhood, not giving her parents any trouble, glad for the family she had. She felt lucky that her parents were still together, especially when most of her friends' parents were divorced. Everything changed when she was seventeen, and it came out that her dad had been having an affair with a younger woman at his office.
Feeling angry at both her parents, tired of the now constant fighting, and yet wanting their family together again, she started letting her grades slip, hoping that it would get their attention, and that they'd have to come together to help her. When that didn't work, she started stealing small stuff, cheap costume jewelry or makeup and clothes, hoping that the more serious yet relatively minor offense would snap her parents out of their fighting with each other and realize that she still needed them both. She didn't try to hide what she was doing, but getting caught and arrested only seemed to make her parents angrier with each other, and with her. After a few rounds of being put in jail, her parents told her they couldn't handle what she was doing, and made her leave the house.
Disillusioned with them, hurt that they could care so little for her when she'd thought parents were supposed to love and stand by their kids, she ended up wandering the streets, though she never could bring herself to the prostitution. She often went hungry, rather than stoop to that level, and instead of stealing jewelry, she started stealing food. Eventually she got the idea to purposefully let herself be caught, simply to have a roof over her head in the form of the jail, and regular food for a few days, until she went before the judge. Eventually the judge sentenced her to Circe, and although she's never been to prison before, she thinks it would be better than going back home.
For Inmates: what would you like to see happen to your character:[/b] Julie wants to know that people are still decent, in spite of how her parents have treated her. She wants to feel that someone genuinely cares about her and what happens to her.
