I am Amelia “Coppertop” Reninier. I was raised on Airship Horizons with my brother, sister, and my mother. My father was a Copperbolt Citizen, a business owner in the Airhsip Mechanics field. He was unkind and abusive. When I was young, my father was exiled to an Outer Rock for crimes he had committed, which left all his posessions and his business to my mother. We managed to survive without him and we were better off. His exile freed us from his tyranny, though he’s still floating around Aether Skies. Both my brother, sister, and I are copperbolt citizens thanks to the hard work and servitude of our mother. My brother is now an Airship Mechanic on a smaller Inner Rock, and my sister is a Copperbolt business woman who deals with Barrens on a regular basis. Unlike my sibblings, I am far more like my mother… free spirited. I inhereted the Airship Horizons when my mother retired. I met my hubsand Thomas on Copperbolt, a non-citizen. Insted of working for citizenship, we fled Copperbolt to be together. Over the years, as a child and an adult, we’ve had a tradition of taking on passengers who needed a place to survive. We’re not a colonial Airship, but we’ve often opened our ship as a home to others.
My husband, Thomas Reinier, was raised on Copperbolt as a lower classed non-citizen with just his mother and his uncle. It was just the three of them taking whatever jobs they could get. Thomas says that life was more difficult until he met me and we fled Copperbolt. We discovered the multiverse together and have been traveling ever since. Unfortunately, Thomas’ mother and uncle are still non-citizens in Copperbolt trying to make ends meet. We send them back provisions when we can but haven’t been able to visit since we left. This is one of the hardest things we have to endure. In fact, they were never able to meet me face to face due to the circumstances. We’ve been working on a plan to move his family off the Rock, but it may be a few years before we can get them on the ship. Still we manage to get by.
We live every day to the fullest and we’re doing just fine.
