Character Description Example

Lady Delilah Brookfield – (Ghost Debutante Daughter)

It was at the last debutante ball of the season that Delilah met her untimely death. Numerous suitors had spent requesting dance after dance as the beautiful evening at Brookfield Manor progressed. Her dress was perfect. After all, Father spared no expense when it came to his little muffin. Mother was a different story. She was jealous of Delilah and made her life unbearable. Daddy traveled most of the year, so when he was there for this special ball, Delilah was overjoyed. She believed her life would change that night, and it did. After her mother called her upstairs to discuss the possible husbands showing interest, Delilah tripped on her beautiful gown on the way down the stairs. She still blames her mother for her death. Now, she floats through the halls of Brookfield looking for the perfect suitor. To her surprise and delight, two Americans walked in. One of them would marry her… or else.
