"The Loyalist Providence"
Personality and InterestsEdit
Julia Dupoint: Julia is a high-spirited woman with a lot of pride in her providence. She’s very motivated and optimistic, but is somewhat naive and not very good at deciphering the intentions of people and organizations. She’s very math-savvy and presents herself in a sort of friendly businesswoman-like light. However, despite this all, Julia tends to be a little reclusive when she’s not doing something job-related. On that note, she’s secretly pretty selfish and codependent. This might have its roots from when she had been engaged to Nova Scotia but was later dumped. Julia is still very much in-love with Scott, despite time tearing them apart.
Anton Morel: Anton is a reserved Francophone who is very skilled with his hands. He’s very knowledgeable and tends to read voraciously when given the chance. In a way, he’s very opposite of Julia. Anton is very good at reading people and often can decipher their motives. Although it may seem that he’s a weaker character than Julia, this is not necessarily true. Anton is very strong mentally, emotionally, and physically and is usually good for ideas. He’s often seen as blunt and almost rude, but really, it’s his way of avoiding drama. His relationship with Quebec is pretty decent, and he knows Maine is good for a handful of blueberries or two.
