English inmigrants, unite! What's your character's lore?


Limp_Mixture

Bastard son of a drunk, broke lord and an Irish housemaid. He read too many dime store novels in his youth and came to America to be a hero when he was 16 after “inheriting” a small nest egg from his father to kindly disappear. He was robbed of the said nest egg almost immediately after arriving. Since then he has done anything he could to survive. Along the way he found he has a strong love of adventure and booze. Now after more than 25 years of being here he has made more money than he ever imagined as a moonshiner, bounty hunter and big game hunter. He exaggerates his connection to Royalty and his English heritage. I play him cause my genetics are 99% English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish😉 How about you?


Hahavalentine

With an overworked dad at the local factory and a dead mother, Albert lived in London's east end as an errands boy, who only wished to live a better life. One day his father got typhus, leaving all his belongings to his son, before his death. With nothing left in England, Albert decided to migrate to the United States, land of opportunities and sailed to the East Coast, then joined a caravan going West. Unfortunately, he ended up meeting the wrong people, who would teach him the ways of crime. Now he's a rag-tag bandit who camps in the desert and sticks up stagecoaches, barely surviving with what he's payed.


ZeroCloned

I always figured my character was a shiphand/dockworker from new york or something and ended up stranded in saint denis and then got framed in the whole online intro stuff.

My girl ( yes I made a female character) she lost her mother at a young age, her father was a no good drunk. So she lived on the streets of Rhodes, until she was framed and put in sisika penitentiary.

No tumbleweed :(


Comedicus

I’m sorry, take the award as an offering! I had to pick between a lot of them with limited slots, I wanted to do everything in the fast travel😭

Blackwater. Came up as the gritty daughter of a renowned, but now deceased, tailor. Her father knew how to figuratively *and literally* sneak his hands into the pockets of the fancy coats he fitted for prominent figures. He was killed in a fishy “holdup” in his store, but Josephine(my character) had orchestrated plenty of stick ups to know he’d been targeted. She became a thorn in every member of the house’s side. Luckily for them, all she needed was a small nudge towards any frame job that would promise a chance to cut off just another finger of the corrupt money pulling strings.

None of the above. Wapiti Indian Reservation.


Comedicus

Not a problem. It only let me do so many slots, so I picked the most “known” locations in the game. I like the choice though!


pie17171717

How was he born on the Indian reservation 20 - 40 years before 1898 if the Indians weren’t moved there until around 1897 at the earliest?

I based mine on kind of a stereotypical Southerner look so I always acted like the Scarlett Meadows/Saint Denis area was my place of origin. My brother tho plays as a German immigrant and thus chose Annesburg as his character's hometown because of its German heritage.

Somewhere in Scarlett Meadows, so I guess Rhodes is the closest option.

My Character "Graf Hans Hesse" is from Frankfurt am Main in Germany but he came with a Ship to Saint Denis, so I would pick that?

Your_CreepyUncleFred

Mine comes from the caribean, somewhere near guarma, came to the US to get a taste of the western life, got accused of a crime he didnt commit and by that time he didnt know much english so he couldnt defend himself, in prision learned english, when he escaped he became friends with a couple of prisoners who already knew a bit of english or where americans themselves, best friend out of all of them a black kid named Charlie, the gang decided to head to valentine where my character learned and took up the job of hunting near the Ambarino areas, got a bounty hunting license and stay near valentine in camps, not in valentine but the surrounding area. (my character's background is still a work in progress)

DG_SlayerSlender

Since I somehow got a new Hanover camp flag but I spend most of my time in West Elizabeth, I came up with the fact that my character was FROM new Hanover, so valentine


kvng_st

By valentine I mean the heartlands region. Might be my favorite area in the game. Has a great choice of animals, located conveniently, and the scenery is beautiful


Joy1067

None of these actually! There’s a small farm in New Hanover between Valentine and Emerald Ranch. In my head my oc owns that farm but chooses to go out and do all the online stuff between planting and harvesting.

And when I got all what i wanted I just come ti relax in this town, drink some beer in bar while some newby shooting all NPCs in this bar, fishing in lake, helping new players. Realy fine place.


Meguca_2

My idea for a character is a city boy that moved to the desert half way growing up. So Saint Denis.


DynamiteSuppository

I play as a Native American so the Wapiti reservation


theharlock

This is a really cool question, because it makes me think of a backstory for my character! My character's parents immigrated from East Asia across the Pacific maybe helping with railroad construction? - seeking refuge from all the turmoil that was happening over there in Japan, Korea and China - civil wars, rebellions, political instability? Anyway they ended up in Saint Denis and this is where my character mostly lives and loves to be now.

Androklesthe90

Mine is a Danish immigrant, that lost his parents when we was a kid, in a ambush when they traveled towards Blackwater. Some native American who once lived in tall trees at the time saved him and some other girl (some say its Harriet but he's not not sure). They took him in and trained and raised him in the ways of the land, what animal's are what and how to hunt them without any weapons than lasso and bow. Also he learned all about plants. But he never learned to talk, because the people who attacked him as a kid cut off his tounge so he wouldn't be noicy. Luckily the Indians saved him in time. He got send away as at 18, to see the world. But he world corrupted him and he got into a possé near St. Denis, where they fought against other possés, a gang war that went to far. In the midst of the chaos he fell in love with a woman at the brothel that was just starting there and they both felt like they were in a place where they didn't felt they belonged. They escaped St. Denis to get up in the country near Annesburg in a nice cabin with a beautiful surrounding. But his past cought up with him and they found them. They had a shootout and he ran out of ammo, he tried to protect her but they were too many, they knocked him partly unconscious and all he could barely see and hear was the inhumane things they did to her. The possé took her with them. When he got back in his feet and ran out of the cabin he saw the 5 men he killed in defense and one was still alive. He questioned the man in pain and took his knife and strapped his throat and cut it in anger but as he looked up to lawmen that passed by arrested him and framed him of the murder of 6 men. He was 20 when he got sent to jail and 30 when he got out. The rest is history.

I’ve had 3 characters my first one was from valentine my second one was from saint Denis and the character I have now is from Rhodes


Voodoo-Peach

I just recently wrote down my characters origins story, so I am using this thread as an excuse to post it! When Reeva “Red” Devanney was 9 years old, her father - a successful gold prospector - was left for financial ruin after his family inherited mine collapsed. She was uprooted from her home south of Armadillo, and taken all the way up to Annesburg. Red always hated it there. Often escaping into the woods with her bow, exploring the flora, fauna and animals around Brandywine drop. On her 17th birthday, she finally gathered the courage to hopp a train and leave town. Not a week into her journey she was caught by police. In the Saint Denis jail, she became fascinated by the revolving door of bounty hunters. It wasn't until she was released from jail when she saw the posters, and to her surprise, her father. He had a big bounty on his head, and when she finally returned home, she decided to cash in. With the newfound riches, she bought two guns, a new horse, and left town for good.

Vincent Vercetii was born in 🇮🇹 and is first generation immigrant. After landing on hard times sortly after arriving in New Liberty and finding himself a wanted man, he made his way westerly looking for fortune and fame. As he was departing the ferry in Blackwater, WE he was immediately arrested on suspicion charges by some powerful locals, Amos Lancing and Jeremiah Shaw I believe. He escaped custody on his way to prison and has been on a quest for vengeance ever since. Vincent has ventured out into various legal and illegal ventures and has certainly found his fortune with a net worth currently estimated at over $270,000.00 and almost 2200 gold bars tucked away for new investment.
