Character Sheet for Janeeza Goldschmidt
"Jan" :ALIASES: Janet Goldsmith Jan Goldschmidt Janet Gold(other variants at given times)
Her personality is very hard to pin down, as over the years she has learned several personas to deal with the different types of personalities she encounters in her daily life.
When dealing with legitimate customers she is very polite, easy to deal with, forthcoming, and fair.
When dealing with criminal customers she is quite similar, but MUCH more stern and quick to anger, seeing as her career(both legitimate and criminal)is at stake if either of them fuck something up.
When dealing with civilians she acts like a normal 20-something, being playful, easygoing, friendly, and outspoken.
When dealing with gangsters she believes are below her, she's very cross, stern, and no-nonsense. She doesn't take shit from anyone she thinks is underneath her.
When dealing with gangsters she feels should be respected or at least feared, she does so, and tends to be submissive and more passively manipulative.
Which, if any of these is closest to her true personality isn't sure.
She was born poor in Belize, the daughter of a washwoman and a trinket seller. She went to school at a local convent, excelling at most subjects and earning the affection and high expectations of her teachers and the other sisters. Spending many nights of her young life hungry or thirsty for want of clean water, she easily took to thieving as a method of filling her belly. After the first time being caught stealing and the subsequent punishment(something she refuses to talk about to this day), she moved into the convent, staying there until she turned 15.
She found her way into crime, finding manipulating most men easy. Her primary interest was smuggling, which she did not enjoy at all, and which landed her in more than a few predicaments which she still prefers not to talk about.
As soon as resources and reputation allowed, she fell into a more peaceful occupation within their circles. She bought an office near the docks and began building a legitimate reputation in international shipping, using that as a front to continue to smuggle illicit items internationally.
Now, having developed an exceptional reputation, she has been contacted by Braulio Morais, a Brazilian gangster who is seeking to expand his gang's empire to the United States. Moving to Marblecliff, NH, to continue her work under the Brazilian Bulldog.
