Rubie left the family home when she was just 15 to join her elder sister, Rosa, in the city. Fascinated by fashion and particularly diamonds, she decided to join the Uppers when she was 16 to giver her career a boost. Ten years on, she doesn't regret a thing.
As the crème-de-la-crème of the jet-set, the Uppers rule the night. They’ve got it all, and money, champagne and titles are certainly not in short supply. They generally dislike everyone but they particularly despise “the poor who just aren’t the teeniest bit funky”. The Uppers hope that the government will finally take steps to banish ugly people once and for all.
