Born in Savannah, Georgia, to Andrew & Sally McBride on November 3, 1883, Gadget McBride was a precocious child indeed. Not only did she learn to talk before age 3, but she also experimented with the toys her parents bought her, often using them to create makeshift prototypes for her future inventions. In fact, the enfant protégé was constantly babied by Andrew & Sally, & she won the envy of her three sisters, Eliza, Julie, & Jane.
But other than inventing, three of Gadget’s many other talents were singing, dancing, & acting, & she often performed with the Little Women, sometimes even writing scripts & composing music for them. Gadget was also the brains of the group, often the first to come up with an idea for their next composition.
In 1898, shortly before Gadget’s 15th birthday, the McBrides made their way to Manchester to look for their long-lost son Ratigan. Upon finding him, they immediately moved with them to their house in London.
Nowadays, Gadget can be seen performing with her sisters, & working on her inventions in her room at Lower 221B Baker Street.
As the smartest of the Baker Street Kids, Gadget has plenty of brains to spare; her high intelligence & ingenious nature often come in handy, whether for working on a new play for the Little Women, helping her mother come up with a new story, or (in most cases) getting the Baker Street Family out of a tight jam. The smart & resourceful Gadget, as her name suggests, is also very inventive, always coming up with some sort of useful machine. (Sometimes, Gadget’s machines blow up in her face, but that’s the life of a scientist for you...) Not exactly as you modern folk would expect, Gadget’s brainy nature makes her quite popular among the other children in London, especially at school, where she is a member of many clubs ranging from Welding to Audio / Visual.
Another well-liked quality of Gadget’s personality is her sweet & friendly attitude; her gentle personality & innocent doe-eyed looks make her easy to get along with, but do watch out should she get upset. Gadget’s patience runs about as long as the fuse on a stick of dynamite. Despite this, the clever Gadget is a talented young lady, always willing to contribute to the Little Women’s newest project, be it in music or writing, as Gadget can play synthesizer extremely well & is also a skilled screenwriter. Gadget’s compositions, in fact, have won her & her sisters quite a few of their many awards.
The most amazing thing about Gadget, however, is her 20 / 20 vision; like her sister Julie, not a detail can escape from Gadget’s perceptive crystal-clear green eyes. But there is a downside to this astounding ability; the overly-observant Gadget tends to pry into other people’s business. While Gadget often apologizes for doing so, she doesn’t really see the need, considering her sharp eyes tend to assist her family on cases & certain escapades...
