My demons are begging me to open up my mouth
I need them, mechanically make the words come out

They fight me, vigorous and angry, watch them pounce
Ignite me, licking up the flames they bring about
Cin feels incredibly responsible for every one of her younger siblings. She feels like she's the only one they have, whether they like it or not, and she needs to make sure they turn out okay. Ideally she wants them to get out, to get a good job and a good life, far away from this shithole. (She doesn't think it's likely though. She feels like they're all stuck there forever.) This responsibly doesn't necessarily mean she's the nicest sister, just that she's pushy and thinks she's right.
Distrustful of people with wealth and assumes they did shitty things to get it, but would desperately love to be rich. If someone offered her a million dollars to kill some random, she'd take that without a second thought.
Thinks people need to look out for themselves and their own family, and let others do the same. Cin doesn't stick her neck out for nobody. She doesn't trust the kindness of others, always looking out for where the trap is. People don't just do things out of the goodness of their hearts, after all.
Cin is hard-working and will do so without much complaint, and she's also practical and resourceful: she knows how to stretch out a paycheck to keep the family going, and she knows how to fix (or at least shore up) enough things at home that they rarely have to call in expensive maintenance. These are the things she's taught her siblings as well (but she doesn't like having to teach something more than once.) Cin's base line is don't pay someone to fix something when you can learn how to do it from youtube for free.
She's stubborn - so so stubborn - and she'll dig her heels in over the dumbest shit. Compromise, in most cases, just means you lost the argument. And Cin doesn't like to lose arguments. She likes to scream the house down and throw things and lash out. With men she's possessive and jealous, and it's made every one of her relationships an ugly and dangerous thing.
She loves rich things: expensive cars, designer clothes, ridiculous restaurants. If it's associated with status and money, Cin's into it. She doesn't own any of it, but, by god, is it ever her dream to do so.
They rush me, telling me I'm running out of time
They shush me, walking me across a fragile line
The odds were stacked against Cin from the start. Born in one of the poorest neighbourhoods of NYC, a shitty four block section known The Hole, she was the daughter of Kelly, a 15-year-old high school drop out, and a father who skipped out as soon as the pregnancy was announced. Cin spent a lot of her early childhood being hidden out the back of whatever job Kelly managed to hold down, and then as soon as she was old enough she was left at home instead. She didn't see her mum that much.
When Cin was five, Kelly got herself a new boyfriend, Tyler, who stuck around and they had three kids together. Tyler never much liked Cin - Cin was evidence of Kelly's relationships before him, after all - and when he got angry and violent, Kelly and Cin got the worst of it. He didn't dare lay a hand on his own kids.
But eventually Tyler took off as well, and in a few more years Kelly got knocked up again.
Cin was struggling her way through high school by now, hopelessly wanting to get out of The Hole but kinda figuring she never would. Kelly took off and went on longer and longer benders, or just 'went to find herself', leaving teenage Cin in charge at home, having to play mother to four siblings.
Cin is 24 now and very little has changed in her life since then. She still lives at home - because who the fuck else is gonna look after the family? - and works two jobs - one doing laundry for a hotel and one at 24 hour convenience store.
