Full name: Ralph ??? - He doesn't remember his last name. His parents left him and his little brother to fend for themselves when they were young. He's not bothered by it though.
Age: 14 years old
Sex + gender: Male
His jacket has lots of patches in them (Ralph doesn't like throwing away things when they can still be fixed), he has a strawberry bandage across his nose (he got it when someone hit him when he called them ugly). His neckerchief is probably the only thing that looks relatively "clean".
Orientation: ??? - Ralph has never thought about this. He doesn't like thinking about things such as relationships since he thinks they're not needed.
Shoeshiner - He mainly spends his day in the plaza where many well-off men and women come to get their shoes cleaned for cheap. Ralph wants to have a much better job once he grows up, but for now, he's stuck with shining countless shoes.
+ Hardworking + Protective (to his brother, anyway) + Likes things simple + Thrifty + Independent + Orderly
- Moody - Sensitive - Insensitive - Rude - Snarky - Doesn't like sharing - Immature
Ralph is very rude to everyone he meets. He judges people by their appearance and will always comment on it. He is, however, easily offended when people bring his own appearance up. His language doesn't have a filter and will always speak whatever it is on his mind. As he is used to rough personalities at having been brought up in the slums, he is always caught off guard when someone displays kindness to him. These are the people that he will tolerate and will try to be more considerate to. Ralph hates it when people order him around, especially if it's for free. He will always ask for a fee, even if it's the most ridiculous thing such as being nice.
He doesn't like talking about politics most of the times unless money is involved; but listening to other people's opinions do interest him, and he will try to maintain a conversation even if he can't tolerate the person he's talking to. If his language bothers you, don't worry, he's all bark and no bite. Ralph wouldn't voluntarily get into a fight, because as much as he likes thinking he's some mature kid, he really doesn't like getting bruises and cuts and having to end up buying bandages (they're pricey!).
Just wave a piece of money in front of him and he will give you his 100% attention.
+ Strawberries (A customer once gave him a box of strawberries for doing a fine job; he never got over at how sweet it tasted!)
+ Caring for his little brother
+ Getting paid
+ Having lots of jobs
- Washing clothes
- Not having breakfast
- Roudy people
- Unorganized rooms
- Bossy people
- Expensive things,
Extras: Ralph is very determined to someday get him and his brother out of the slums. While he isn't bothered by his way of living, he's doesn't want the same for his brother. He would accept any job offered to him by his regular customers, simple ones, such as cleaning their yard (He doesn't know why they bother with things such as plants or grass, he thinks their houses would look fine without it.) or helping them take out their trash (It's just trash! Ralph doesn't understand how some people don't like getting their hands dirty!). He's rather moody and often doesn't get when people actually mean something or they're just joking. On the other hand, Ralph doesn't know when he's crossing the line when talking with somebody, and will offend a person or two every day. Also, he curses. A LOT.
Phew, trying for a new RP group! This group looks so interesting plus defenestratin
got me into it. Please pardon my rude kid.
