Deborah ‘Debbie’ Gallagher is the fourth Gallagher sibling. Debbie is helpful, sensitive, and has a good heart. Extremely mature and grounded for her age Debs longs for familial stability, rarely with any luck. Although she tries to act hard and comes off as a tough girl with a spunky attitude, deep down she is compassionate and sensitive. Not really fitting in very well at school, Debs falls for a local boy Derek who impregnates her and then leaves the state. Stoic, concerned, dependable, and ethical Debs is a Guardian.
Phillip ‘Lip’ Gallagher is the second Gallagher child and by far the smartest. Despite graduating with a 4.6 GPA Lip has a highly cynical personality, and racked up quite a juvenile record. After getting into MIT and meeting a female of interest Lip starts to take his academia much more seriously as he starts to realize his potential. Lip is dedicated and protective of his younger siblings, but often clashes with Fiona’s parental nature. Ultimately Lip loves his family and sees school as a way for them to get out of the Chicago ghetto. Logical, subjunctive, autonomous, and skeptical Lip is a Rational.

She is a hard worker and has worked a lot of minimum wage jobs to bring in money to help support her and her family. She essentially raised Ian, Lip, Debs and Liam by herself. Although she is generally responsible honest and loyal, she can have a bit of a wild side especially when it comes to relationships. Despite her tumultuous love life, Fiona always shows up for the family and is the matriarch after their mother Monica left at an early age. She is currently dating her boss who just promoted her to assistant manager. Relational, diplomatic, sensitive, and kindhearted Fiona is an Idealist.
