We welcome Rita Morales to the city. She’s 26 years old and is a sound engineer. Rita is often mistaken for Danna Paola. She’s open.
→ Background Information
Rita’s mother passed away after giving birth to her youngest brother. There were dive of them all together. Rita had two younger brothers, and two older. It was a big family. It wasn’t one her father could cope with very well either. So Rita basically played the role of a second parent to all her brothers from the age of 11. Due to her situation, Rita’s upbringing was exactly like most other girls her age. Her hair was always above shoulder length because she didn’t have time for the upkeep. She never owned a single Barbie doll. She knew how to hot wire a car and set up home entertainment systems before knowing how to plait her own hair. There was a small amount of bullying at school for how tom-boyish she was, but Rita’s brothers were quick to teach her how to deal with it in a physical manner.
→ Relocation Explanation
Rita adored her brothers, but also couldn’t stand them. She loved them from a distance. Some of them went away to University and Rita thought things were going to calm down. She would be able to take care of their father alone. Things got easier. Then, they came back from University and things got manic again. It was at this point Rita decided enough was enough. She’d heard about Libertas. Upon applying, she was unfortunately turned away. The place seemed great though and Rita wasn’t the kind to give up easily. So she snuck in instead.
→ Living Situation
Because Rita didn’t move to Libertas through the proper systems, she wouldn’t be able to just get a place like every other person there. She spent her first night in the city sleeping on a park bench. The next day, she looked into a few potential leads. Then she came across Solomon Fagin. He had also come to the city without official sign off, but had managed to get hold of a place. He was letting beds out to others in a similar position to him. All Fagin asked in return was some money towards rent and help with meals. Obviously Rita had spent much of her life cooking for her, her father and her brothers so she was happy to help prepare food for everyone in the house.
→ Her Personality
You’d be a fool to decide to mess with Rita. Not only is she physically strong enough to take you on, but she could also tear your ego down with words in seconds. The woman doesn’t take lightly to funny business. Despite all this ferocity however, Rita is incredibly caring. She would go to the end of the earth for those she loves without a moment’s consideration. Raising five men taught her the important of acting with compassion. It also taught her the importance of budgeting. She knows that one slip up can leave you eating noodles for two weeks. Even though she’s managed to secure a part time job at the Libertas Community Theatre, she’s still as frugal as ever.
→ Her Qualities
Compassionate, caring, protective
Prideful, bossy, parsimonious
→ Her Relationships
Oliver Twist (Friend): The last thing Rita expected was for someone as sweet as Oliver to be bought into her life, especially by Dodger. He’s incredibly innocent despite the rough childhood he had before being adopted. So now, Rita wants to protect this innocence as much as possible. While it’s fun having him around, Rita doesn’t want him liking this way of life too much. He deserves better.
Solomon Fagin (Landlord & housemate): Fagin was expecting money from the first moment Rita moved in. He’s a lovely guy, but has a lot of issues. Rita has a feeling he’s involved with some bad people too. Rita was at her wits end when she first moved in to get the money he expected so ended up joining Jack on a couple of jobs.
Jack Dawkins (Best friend & housemate): It was through Jack, or Dodger as he’s better known, that Rita learned all the pickpocketing and con tricks she knows. The pair are actually an incredible team. They get along like a house on fire and you’ll regularly find them bonding over a bottle of tequila at the end of the day. She’s tried to get him to get an actual job as best she can but knows this won’t happen anytime soon.
Willian Einstein, Francis Einstein & Ignacio de Tito (Friends & housemates): The last thing Rita wanted really was to move from one house full of boys to another, so she wasn’t exactly thrilled when she realised who she’d be sharing her new home with. All the guys are really lovely. They don’t get on her nerves in the same ways her brothers did though. They’re all slowly learning to adjust to each other. While they might not be her actual brothers, Rita loves them all as if they were.
→ Possible Connections
Georgette Foxworth (Friend): Rita had never met a woman like Georgette before in her life, so found her incredibly interesting. She had immediate respect for how confident in herself she was. The pair are actually similar in more ways than they might think.
Jennifer Foxworth (Acquaintance): If there’s anything Rita can appreciate, it’s someone with a heart. Jenny has a big one of those, shown by when she took in young Oliver.
Roscoe Dobermann & Miguel de Soto (Enemies): Well aware of Fagin’s past, Rita always thought that regardless of the move, trouble would still follow him. It’s not a matter of if it catches up with them in her opinion, it’s more a matter of when. She’s preparing herself for that day.

Pets: Dorothy - Redish/pink betta Fish, Tiny - Tito’s Rottweiler/Pitbull Mix
Home Life During Childhood: Before he was found and taken in by Fagin? Horrible. Dodger suffered abuse from parents who were far too young and immature to have children. They didn’t want a kid, and they made that very clear to Dodger from the very moment they brought him home. He was never shown love or compassion from his mother or father. He was barely taken care of and owned one toy in his five or so years of living with them. He suffered emotional and physical abuse and spent many nights on the streets, unsupervised. Often, he was locked out of his house for ‘misbehavior’. Eventually Dodger just decided to stay out there and spent his nights under a bridge before eventually Fagin took notice of him and eventually gained his trust and brought him home.
After Fagin, his childhood was still a little troubled. Their family was poor, and often struggled to find money for food, luxuries or heat. Even struggling, Dodger much preferred his found family as he got to learn what it was like to have people that loved him. Even with debt collectors, facing abuse from the Sykes’ and occasionally needing to eat small inconsistent meals, or cuddle up together instead of having heat in the house. He wouldn’t trade it for the world.
What Did His or Her Bedroom Look Like: When Dodger moved in with Fagin he quickly took over the apartment’s storage loft and claimed it as his own. While it was dangerous (there was no barrier to stop anyone from falling back into the living room below) and a little drafty (there was also a nifty hole that gave him access to the roof) - it was home for Dodger. With a mattress tucked up into the corner and the rickety ladder to get up and down (that he himself rarely used), it was perfect for Dodger. Sure - it wasn’t all the spacious or child-friendly but... it was his favorite.
Any Sports or Clubs: Dodger didn’t go to school - and therefore he didn’t participate in any clubs or organized sports. Instead he went with Frankie to his theater group, spent time reading with Einstein & Fagin or scaled buildings and played made up sports with Tito.
Favorite Toy or Game: Dodger’s favorite toy (and something he still cherishes to this day) was a small teddy bear that Fagin got him the first night he came home. It’s over a decade (closer to two) old and is worn beyond relief, but Dodger still keeps it in his bedroom. As a child he carried it everywhere and was incredibly protective of it. It has plenty of tears and stitches that Fagin fixed himself - but Dodger loves it all the same.
Schooling: Again, Dodger didn’t go to school. He left his home before he would have been enrolled and while Fagin and Einstein tried to get him into school, Dodger simply couldn’t handle the hours away from his new family, nor could he deal with how overwhelming the whole concept was. So instead, they all did their part homeschooling himself and Tito over the years. He’s got plenty of street smarts and owes everything else he knows to Fagin, Einstein and Frankie.
Favorite Subject: Reading with Fagin & Einstein. (And reading plays with Frankie since he was so dramatic)
Popular or Loner: Popular (not in school obvs)
Religion and beliefs: None
Face Claim: Tyler Posey
Movie/Era Representation: Alone
Complexion: Smooth, olive skinned, freckled
Hair Colour: Naturally Black / Currently Dyed Blue
Eye Colour: Brown
Tattoos: A very large and ever growing collection --> See here
Piercings: 14mm Gauges in ears, nose piercing, snake-bites (re-pierced), eyebrow piercing (re-pierced)
Common Hairstyle: Typically sweptback, sometimes a mess when he wears a hat or beanie, usually tries to keep it semi-long, swept to the side (x is a common look)
Clothing Style: Casual street wear. Ratty jeans, ripped jeans, dirty jeans. T-shirts, muscle tanks, sweatshirts. Backwards hats or beanies. Worn black and white converse. Nothing fancy. You’ll tend to see a red bandana somewhere on his person. Sometimes he wears it around his head, sometimes around his neck, occasionally tucked into a pocket or around his wrist. But it’s always somewhere.
Mannerisms: Likes to drum his fingers or drum on things in general, also a knuckle cracker. Tends to move a lot because he’s high energy.
Usual Expression: Smiley babe
Overall (do they get sick easily)?: Yes. A combination of terrible care to himself and drugs makes Dodger extremely susceptible to getting sick. He’s a perfect picture of what not to do health-wise and it shows.
Physical Ailments: Mildly Anemic,
Neurological Conditions: None.
Allergies: Latex, mangos, cats,
Grooming Habits: He showers, unlike most #men he is not a 3-in-1 kind of guy, so he knows how to use separate body wash, shampoo and conditioner. He’ll wash his face every morning & every night and brush his hair and shit but he’s not over the top. Shaves if his facial hair gets longer than a mild scruff. Keeps the boys tame.
Sleeping Habits: Inconsistent. Dodger has no real sleep schedule, but he tends to sleep just about anywhere when he needs to. He’s the least picky about how he sleeps and falls asleep easy.
Eating Habits: Uh, he eats. Sometimes. Some days it’s eating for a village, some he skips for a day and is like ‘oh yeah oops.’ It depends. So I’d call this inconsistent as well.
Exercise Habits: He’s always exercising just by association. He walks/runs everywhere and climbs shit and is doing his free running/parkour all over Swynlake.
Emotional Stability: Fair. He tends to stay cool and tries to be the mediator when it comes to trouble. Dodger tends to be the one who keeps it together and stays calm when they’re in a situation. The relief, really. However when he does slip, he can get emotional quickly. Fun-fact: Dodger never yells. He may say things firmly, angrily, etc but he won’t yell.
Body Temperature: Runs warm.
Sociability: A social butterfly.
Addictions: Drugs (weed, alcohol, pills, etc).
Drug Use: Daily, addicted. The hard stuff isn’t daily (weed is... multiple times a day), but more every few days, once a week.
Alcohol Use: Often.
Your Character’s Character:
Bad Habits: Drugs. Drumming on objects or idly, cracking his knuckles, zoning out mid-conversation, scratching the back of his neck, smoking, manipulating people.

Best Characteristic: Openness.
Worst Characteristic: Pride
Worst Memory: Being beaten within an inch of his life & having to leave his family and home behind and flee the country.
Best Memory: Being officially adopted as Fagin & Einstein’s son.
Proud of: Holding his job at the garage. Getting his gig at Pixie’s. Still being in a relationship (new record).
Embarrassed by: His inability to get his music off the ground, how he’s still in the same place in life when everyone else seems to be getting somewhere or doing things.

Strong Points: His passion and drive. His ability to bring things and people together.
Temperament: Carefree and easy going.
Attitude: Optimistic & outgoing.

Motivation: Support for Fagin & Einstein/to make them proud.
Short Term Goals and Hopes: To start picking up more gigs and getting music off the ground.
Long Term Goals and Hopes: To be able to fully financially support himself and the fam through his music and that he can quit his real job and do what he loves.

Favorite Saying: Absotively Posilutely
Clothing: Jeans, T-shirts.
Jewelry: Gauges, lip rings, nose ring, eyebrow stud.
Games: Poker, Rummy, Uno,
Websites: Not a huge internet person (because he didn’t grow up into it like most kids his age). He uses Twitter a lot though. Youtube just to watch things. Used to use the ‘Hub’ quite a bit ;)
TV Shows: Doesn’t really watch TV, but when they could pay for cable, anything ridiculous. He was a fan of the Crocodile Hunter if only because Tito and himself would mimic that show and get into so much trouble.
Movies: Again, he’s not really well versed in movies but.. I’m sure he was into shit he wasn’t supposed to watch when he could get ahold of them. Fight Club, Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, etc.
Greatest Want: To be happy & with his family.
Greatest Need: Affection.
Where and How Does Your Character Live Now:
Home: Dodger now lives in Benbow (2D) and honestly his biggest complaint is simply being on the second floor. He would much prefer an apartment he has to climb higher to break into (since who uses the door?). However, he doesn’t like the apartment nearly as much as he loved the old rickety apartment they lived in back home. He misses his loft and all the weird things that made it perfect. This apartment isn’t terrible - sure, the door sticks something fierce and it’s a little cramped for five people but... it’s fine. And the neighbors aren’t the worst, it’s just... never felt right. It’s still home, if only because home is determined by the people living there more than the place itself.
Household furnishings: A mish-mash of things. Nothing in the Jones household is a set. It’s all second-hand or used items that they got when they could and when they could afford to. That means everything from the tables and chairs don’t really.. match like they might in a normal household, but none of them really mind. They’re just grateful to have them in the first place.
Favorite Possession: The bear Fagin got him when he first came home.
Most Cherished Possessions: The bear Fagin got him when he first came home (shocker) - though a worn red bandana that he took from Fagin also comes in close second. He’s almost always wearing it somewhere. Also the stuffed Reindeer from his first Christmas. The beat up guitar that the whole gang pulled together to get him.
Town or City Name: Swynlake
Relationship with Family: Great! Dodger is incredibly close with his found family. He would lay his life on the line or do anything for all of them. He’s closest to Fagin, but only because that man gave him everything in life he’s ever needed when no one else would. He loves his family so much though. Even if he annoys the absolute piss out of Frankie & Rita, he couldn’t be happier.
Car: Doesn’t have one
Career: Part-Time Mechanic, Part-Time Musician, Part-Time Con-artist/thief
Dream Career: Musician
Dream Life: Happy & can provide and take care of his family so they don’t have to work so hard anymore.
Love Life: Peri
Talents or Skills: Singing, Guitar, Percussion, Piano - musical talent in mostly all forms, athletic ability/balance, can juggle, sleight of hand, pitch perfect.
Intelligence Level: Street smart, book....slightly smart.
Finances: Poor as fuck
Past Careers: Full time thief, part time street performer, odd jobs,
Past Lovers: ‘Lovers’, none really. The closest he had was a toxic first ‘boyfriend’, Corey but it didn’t last long.
