Name: Kristen Marie Varella
Occupation: Pilot, "Raptor Squadron", Lance Corporal
Appearance: Average height, lighter weight than average, much to her doctor's dismay. Red hair, cut short, military regulation length. Piercing green eyes. Spends most of her time in military uniform, if off-duty, will rarely bother to wear much more than tank tops and cargo pants. Has small, but numerous amount of scars on her back and shoulders.
Equipment: Raptor, 9mm handgun, survival kit, two combat knives strapped to her legs, deck of cards, music player and headphones (not actively carried with her), as well as a small jewelry box (not actively carried with her).
Skills: Expert in hand-to-hand combat, as well as having a reputation of being a ruthless pilot. Actively assists on the maintenance for her machine. Has some skill at cards, as well as rumored skill at singing and playing the drums.
Personality: Quiet and unassuming, and usually work-oriented as well. Hates being bothered, or touched. Loves to fight, to the point where she has little objections over spilling blood. Somewhat aggressive and hot-blooded while on missions, and freely lets others know her mind when on the job. Despite this, highly distastes claiming lives. Has noted anger management issues- though by this point it's not an easy trigger as when she was younger. Really loyal to the people she refers to as friends. Actually a big music buff, and enjoys playing cards- though solitaire is her favorite. At least makes an attempt to interact with her fellow squadron members, she just doesn't subscribe to small talk.
Bio: Born somewhere on the eastern coast of America, Kristen and her twin brother Christopher were adopted in late childhood by a family of ranchers- Wherein Kristen began to promptly display her tendencies for extreme violence under pressure. Following several years of therapy, and disciplined living, Kristen put the shared trauma of her and her brother's early childhood behind them, and she soon found herself graduating from high school, and soon enlisted in the Federation military. Having been in the military since the age of eighteen, Kristen was one of the first to use Assault Walkers in military practice- And easily adapted to the new technology as one of the Raptor test pilots for the Federation. After an extended medical leave, Kristen has returned to active duty, and has been assigned to the "Raptor Squadron", for one of the machines she had helped to test.
Weakness: Wrath. She relishes close combat maneuvers, and prefers to eschew ranged weaponry.
Base Model: FAW-022 Raptor
Designation: Wild Card
Appearance: Other than its red and crimson color scheme (with white trim), this particular Raptor is emblazoned with the silver emblem of the joker card, as well as the squadron symbol.
Armaments: 100mm rifle, head-mounted 20mm Vulcan guns, 2 leg-equipped heat knives, heat war handaxes, 4 AIM-120 AMRAAMs, 4 AIM-9 Sidewinders, and chaff launchers.
Weakness: Like all Raptors, fighting in one is exhausting- and the Wild Card is no exception, especially given Kristen's tendency for high-speed hit and runs with her close combat weaponry. Not to mention its lighter armor.
Pilot: Kristen Varella.
