Name:
Katherine Chance Lawrence, also known as Kate or Kathy.

Representative of:
The 21st state Illinois

Gender:
Female

Age:
Human age is 18
Historical is 198 as of December 3rd 2015

Personality:
Personality
This girl has more bad traits than good, Kate is a blunt, stubborn, bad mouthed and impulsive state. Those things can lead her into bad decisions and situations no one with a right mind would want to be apart of. She is also quick tempered, beware when angering this girl, or just sit back, watch and enjoy the tantrum. Did I also mention she's a little sensitive? Ignoring the bad things about her, she's a pretty decent person. She stops at nothing to protect loved ones, she's a great and confident friend (despite having normal insecurities) with a love for adventure and animals. Quickly going back to her not so good things, this state is pretty shady, it doesn't matter if she's good at hiding it or not, she'll ruin someone if given the opportunity. Basically, she can be a downright bitch, or a decent person. There is no in between. Oh, she also can trip on nothing. She doesn’t watch where she’s going.
In short she is
-Blunt
-Stubborn
-Impatient
-Adventurous
-Sensitive
-Quick tempered
-Confident
-Positive
-Rebellious
-Superstitious
-Compassionate
-Impulsive
-Indecisive
-Shady and sneaky
-Gets irritable when bored
-Self conscious on how others view her.


Physical description:
With light brown hair that go past her shoulders and messed up from the winds of Chicago, Kate has a slim face, with an average or slim body that goes up to 5'6. With gray/hazel eyes that arguably her best feature, according to her. Or it could be her legs, she likes both of them. In 1871, the she was in the Great Chicago Fire and suffered from burns and has scars from that day. But they are covered by recent tattoos, most of which that involve nature, like flowers, deer, and her zodiac sign, Sagittarius.

History:
Before the European exploration, Illinois was home to many Native America tribes. In 1673, French explorers explored the Illinois River. In 1680, French explorers constructed present day Peoria. Until 1763, French Canadians settled in the south along the Mississippi river and was apart of the French Empire of La Louisiane, when it was passed to the British with their defeat of France in the Seven Years' War.  

In 1778, George Rogers Clark claimed Illinois County for Virginia. In a compromise, Virginia ceded the area to the new United States in 1783 and it became part of the Northwest Territory, to be administered by the federal government and later organized as states.

In 1818, Illinois became the 21st U.S. state. The capital remained at Kaskaskia, headquartered in a small building rented by the state. In 1819, Vandalia became the capital, and over the next 18 years, three separate buildings were built to serve successively as the capitol building. In 1837, the state legislators representing Sangamon County, under the leadership of state representative Abraham Lincoln, succeeded in having the capital moved to Springfield, where a fifth capitol building was constructed. A sixth capitol building was erected in 1867, which continues to serve as the Illinois capitol today.

From Sunday, October 8, 1871, until Tuesday, October 10, 1871, the Great Chicago Fire burned in downtown Chicago, destroying 4 square miles.
During the American Civil War, Illinois ranked fourth in men who served (more than 250,000) in the Union Army, a figure surpassed by only New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

At the turn of the 20th century, Illinois had a population of nearly 5 million. Many people from other parts of the country were attracted to the state by employment caused by the then-expanding industrial base. Whites were 98% of the state's population. Bolstered by continued immigration from southern and eastern Europe, and by the African-American Great Migration from the South, Illinois grew and emerged as one of the most important states in the union. By the end of the century, the population had reached 12.4 million.

The Century of Progress World's Fair was held at Chicago in 1933. Oil strikes in Marion County and Crawford County lead to a boom in 1937, and, by 1939, Illinois ranked fourth in U.S. oil production. Illinois manufactured 6.1 percent of total United States military armaments produced during World War II, ranking seventh among the 48 states. Chicago became an ocean port with the opening of the Saint Lawrence Seaway in 1959. The seaway and the Illinois Waterway connected Chicago to both the Mississippi River and the Atlantic Ocean. In 1960, Ray Kroc opened the first McDonald's franchise in Des Plaines (which still exists as a museum, with a working McDonald's across the street).

Illinois had a prominent role in the emergence of the nuclear age. In 1942, as part of the Manhattan Project, the University of Chicago conducted the first sustained nuclear chain reaction. In 1957, Argonne National Laboratory, near Chicago, activated the first experimental nuclear power generating system in the United States. By 1960, the first privately financed nuclear plant in the United States, Dresden 1, was dedicated near Morris. In 1967, Fermilab, a national nuclear research facility near Batavia, opened a particle accelerator, which was the world's largest for over 40 years. With eleven plants currently operating, Illinois leads all states in the amount of electricity generated from nuclear power.

In 1961, Illinois became the first state in the nation to adopt the recommendation of the American Law Institute and pass a comprehensive criminal code revision that repealed the law against sodomy. The code also abrogated common law crimes and established an age of consent of 18. The state's fourth constitution was adopted in 1970, replacing the 1870 document.

The first Farm Aid concert was held in Champaign to benefit American farmers, in 1985. The worst upper Mississippi River flood of the century, the Great Flood of 1993, inundated many towns and thousands of acres of farmland.

Religious affiliation:
Agnostic.

Any special powers or abilities:
Pretty flexible.

Hi there hun, being Illinois, which is in the United states, your character would actually be a Jones. Not a Williams.

I know Illinois is in the United States, I live there. And, not all states have to have the same last name as America, right? Williams is a pretty popular last name, too. I personally don't see them as his kids, so that's why her last name is Williams. It's just my preference.

The last name Williams is associated with Canada, so can you change the last name if you're going to have a different one from Jones? Also, not all Jones are Alfred's kids. Haye Jones, aka Boston, is headcanonly England's child that he had with an Algonquian native.

Also, you need one more sentence for her physical description. Thanks.

You have 72 hours to fix this before your app is deleted.
