Classic Literature (exchange)studentResidence:
Apartment in central Moscow Short description:
Leah was born in Ireland but Her family moved to the English city of Liverpool when she was nine. Her father worked as a fishermen, and her mother as a waitress, leaving her home alone for long periods of time. Most of her youth was spent in borderline poverty so she didn't grow up with many modern amenities that most people take for granted.
As such Leah spent most of her youth away from home, spending her time wandering the streets, ďurban exploringĒ or just bullshiting with her friends in some abandoned parking lot. [Redacted] WIP
...found the works of Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky which immediately sparked her love of Russian literature. A few years after she became a Russian exchange student so she could see and experience the country first hand, but now she is stranded there thousands of miles from her family and home with no clear way back.
(Synopsis? Will expand on it more as it comes forth and I get a better feel for the character)Personality:
Very much a tomboy, Leah is adventurous, down-to-earth, but extremely stubborn. She generally level-headed and cool but if you manage to make her mad itís not something she will soon let go. She also had some problems with authority and finds it extremely unpleasant to take or give orders. While not hugely introverted she isnít much of a talker, aloof would be the word she isnít friendly by nature and tends to avoid talking people she doesnít know.
As of the beginning of the story she has a pack of mint toothpicks she keeps around after she stopped smoking to have something to keep in her hands or mouth, and a large spring assisted pocket knife she keeps on her for self-defense, though itís mostly just there to make her feel better.
