10: Milania Salici | Hear ye! My name is Milania Salici; 23 years of age. Although usually unlikely, I have been newly hired by the King as the Town Crier in which provides me with information about various families in the town. For the most part, I rarely deliver good news to a front door. I enjoy the scandals of the Montague family very much. It is very likely for one of the Montague sons to get into mischeif, especially Romeo. As I travel throughout town, door to door, delivering news, my husband, Albino, follows along with the gold bell. I provide more than enough for my husband and I. We live comfortably in our home and carry ourselves properly. Being that I'm hired by the king, I am a part of the upper class in Verona. I am average weight of a woman, 115 pounds, slim and poised. I have grown up as a petite woman at 5'1". You will recognize my blue eyes which contrat my very dark hair, which draws me apart from the typical italian folks I spend time with. I've become timid, yet opionated and sympathetic. I tend to be quiet, yet talkative when comfortable. I am known for being petite and being blessed for unique traits. As a town crier, I am provided with wealthy clothing in which I would be presented in a proper manner. My home is comfortable and exquisite for Albino and I. As we try to build a family, we would like to expand our home. Because my family grew up with the Capulets, I've become an acquaintance of the family. We likely have dinner together and sometimes meet in the town square.
