Character Workbook – John McGrath

Our character is called John McGrath. He was born on October 31st 1988 and is now 22 years old. He is an orphan ginger midget who’s already had a very interesting life. Since he doesn’t have a place to keep stuff, he’s using his body as his Cabinet of Curiosities to collect memories. He has a tattoo for all important events, people and places in his life.

John’s mother left him in a basket on the doorstep of the St Edwards boys home, where Father Doogle found him with a note from his mother and a photograph – the only thing John carries with him today. Father Doogle decided to care for the kid and raised him as his own son. When John was 16, Father Doogle died, leaving him as an inheritant in his last will and testament. After his death, there was a mysterious fire in the boys home, after which John escaped from there to join a circus. While travelling with the circus round the world, he collected his memories as he tattooed all his body with things that reminded him of people and places he went to.

Father Doogle’s last will and testament included a small sum for John to be accessed when he turns 21 to help him buy an ice cream van (he always wanted to do that), and today John is a proud ice cream man travelling around.
