The American Female version of A.J. Raffles: Name:
Abigale Jane RacketLeague:
Michi No SoraAge:
Physically she is much like Mina Murray. She is of short stature and very much the fragile doll. Abby (as she is called by those close to her) is a pretty girl and rather proud of it. She knows that she is pretty and can use that to her advantage if the situation calls for it. Though her lovely body is usually covered in clothing. Abby rarely lets anyone see more than her hands and face. Even her arms are usually covered. Either by long gloves or long sleeves.Character Biography:
Born to a rich family she spent her days in etiquette classes and learning her place as a woman. She didn't openly break away from her family. Instead she played her part as the sweet daughter. Abby has always been a quite and kind woman. She never caused an issue for her family or within her group of friends.
While in school she found the book The Amateur Cracksman
. The story of A.J. Raffles as told from the point of view of friend Bunny Manders struck something in her. Like herself, Raffles is bored with life. Bored with playing the games of his public life. The need for excitement in her life rings true in the character as well. Though unlike the book she had no friend with her to help her achieve this excitement. Still, she can't help but love the idea of midnight thefts from people who will not be hurt by losing a few diamonds.
By day she is the sweet daughter of a rather wealthy family. A woman that is soon becoming labeled as an 'old maid' for her refusal to marry. By night she is probably the world's only gentlewoman thief. Her first theft was a rather small one, but then again she saw no reason to jump in too quickly. She considers it to be her most prized possessions. A small chain necklace. It's not worth much money wise, but it means a lot to her. She got it from sneaking into the house of a former friend. The girl had been her supposed friend. Her first. But the girl had crossed her by seducing the man that was supposed to be her future husband. While Abigale had no intentions of really marrying him, that wasn't what mattered. The necklace was bought for the other woman by the man and she took it.
Unlike the book character Raffles, Abby has only been caught once. She was caught by some well to do in upstate New York. At first she was thrown in jail, but for some reason she was let out and given a few options that lead her to her current situation.Personality:
Very quite and usually very unassuming. She tries to keep to herself. Unlike her book counter part she does not want an very open public life to try and mask her preferred life.Equipment:
A set of lock picks, skeleton keys, and various other objects.
