A Low Youth.

Description

Biography

Born into the law­less, dis­ease-rid­den pover­ty of East Lon­don’s Spi­tal­field slum, the eighth son of an illit­er­ate Irish labour­er, Pinky had no alter­na­tive but to quick­ly learn to fend for him­self. Using the only tools avail­able to him, a quick wit and nim­ble fin­gers, he plied his illic­it trade emp­ty­ing the over­stuffed pock­ets found in abun­dance in the near­by City. No one at home ever thought or cared to ask the source of his fre­quent dona­tions to the stew pot or the rent book.

Before reach­ing his teens, he had lost both of his par­ents to cholera and, find­ing him­self home­less, fell into the hands of one of Lon­don’s more vio­lent crim­i­nal gangs. He refus­es to be drawn on the details of his time with them but his pained and shame­faced expres­sion when ques­tioned is a not entire­ly con­vinc­ing cov­er for a real and iron-rigid fear of the gal­lows.

He came to the atten­tion of the Min­istry when, attempt­ing to escape the clutch­es of the gang, he was caught by Cap­tain Cur­ruthers break­ing into his lodg­ings. Sub­se­quent­ly dis­cov­er­ing that some of Pinky’s pur­suers might not be entire­ly human, Cur­ruthers decid­ed to spon­sor his appren­tice­ship with the Min­istry in return for a promise to stay on the straight and nar­row.
