Family portrait

• I am new!
• I love my siblings.
• Get that onion off me! It smells!
• I am a saint.
• I burned and risen.
• I am an angel.

Where are we from and where are we to?

• We are from and we are to Puevfg(Rot13). – m4n0 Jul 15 '18 at 8:02
• That last bullet point: definitely just one angel rather than several? – Gareth McCaughan Jul 15 '18 at 11:50
• Could you clarify the last bullet point please? My answer below makes an assumption about it and I'd like to know where it stands. – Rubio Jul 18 '18 at 21:24

I think you may be ...

Because ...

I am new!


New York City

I love my siblings.


the city of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia

Get that onion off me! It smells!


Chicago - the most accepted origin of which is a French translation of the word "shikaakwa" which in an Algonquin dialect means "stinky onion".

I am a saint.


St. Louis, presumably, though other cities might probably also work.

I burned and risen.


Phoenix, referencing the mythical bird.

I am an angel.


Presumably Los Angeles, but Gareth's question in the comment is very relevant.

If you follow along with me you'll see

that these are major US cities along a course from east coast to west, or as the American patriotic song "America the Beautiful" famously phrases it, "from sea to shining sea."

• I did not know that about the onion. I had the sibling-loving and the burned-and-risen, which made it clear what sort of thing was going on. I have to admit I was hoping it would end up being something more specific... – Gareth McCaughan Jul 15 '18 at 20:04
