17: My name is Viviana Baker. As a living I work at my family's bakery. Because I make baked goods for everyone, I do business with both the Capulets and the Montagues | My persona

18: Ciao a tutti! I humbly introduce myself as Viviana Baker, though by most I’m known simply as Vivi. By my name you can assume I’m a baker, and that assumption would be correct. I’m a 21 year old maiden yet to be married and still live with my family. Though, we are small we make a great profit from our respectable job so our economic status is quite fair compared to others. I’m often hired from a noble family to come cook meals for them and because of my calm and kindhearted personality I have many loyal customers. Often people say that my baked goods can be just as sweet as my character. I’m a petite woman with long chocolate hair which I usually pull back into a bun or fashion it into a braid just mostly for conveniences sake. My eyes are a contrasting jade green and because of my height, I don't weigh much. Most find me humorous and my comments witty, while others view me as flirtatious, though I would have to disagree with that. I’m most often compared to a cat because of my silence and some have gone as far as to say that voice sounds like that of a purring cat’s. I try not to make any dramatic movements, just small gestures so as not to appear flamboyant. My attire is quite simple, just a plain dress with an apron because, after all being a baker requires a lot of flour and getting it on clothing is a hassle to get off. As stated before I still reside with my father and mother and I’m quite content in our little stone house. In this dwelling is where I first watched my father bake bread and from him I learned the skill to become a baker. Though I’ve never really gotten a formal education, I learned all that I need from my own papa. Due to my mother’s illness I am the one to prepare meals at home which consist of some kind of stew, of course a side of bread, and beer though I find the taste bitter so I mostly stick to sweet wine. And with that I bid you addio.
