NAME: Jimmy Taylor
ORIGIN: Irish/French Canadian. Brought up in a suburb of Quebec, not far from the city.
APPEARANCE: 5’9”. Brown hair, large brown-grey eyes. Very slender, but not fragile. Strong hands.
LIFESPAN: At least 30 years.

As Jimmy Taylor, I was born to a middle-class family just outside of Quebec City. In many ways our family was rather normal. Both parents were there, and I was the younger of two boys. But as we got older, something got sour between our parents. By the time I was six (and my brother David was eleven), my father was an alcoholic, and my mother beat us for “stepping out of line”.

I suffered through school, hanging with the rough crowd. When I was 13 and David was about to leave for a University, we had a falling-out and I ran away from home. I got caught that time after a couple weeks, and brought home. But I kept running away, and eventually I managed to get far enough away so they couldn't find me. I also started introducing myself to people as “Dodge”.

I lived on the streets for nearly a year, finding food and shelter wherever I could. I also got involved in some pretty illegal activity, including drug abuse. At 17, I came under the care of a man named Fagin, who gave me shelter as long as I “worked” for him and his partner Bill, and recruited other young boys to his “business”. Eventually the business consisted of myself and four other boys; Chris, Noah, Adam, and Oliver. It fell apart, though, and I ended up on the streets again.

Then I met Tod Jeremy, a young man only a little older than me, and we rented an apartment together. We both got jobs at a video rental store and sold marijuana to pay the bills. With Tod’s help I got over some of my worse addictions, though I still drank and smoked excessively.

I know that I lived at least 30 years in this life, though the cause of death is unknown.
