OOC: So, what, exactly, is going on at the park?
Also, posted for approval.
Name: First Lieutenant Samantha C. Stevens
Faction: Mutant Activities Control and Enforcement (MACE)
Appearance: A young African American women, Samantha is in excellent shape, as fits her status as a soldier within MACE and a former member of the vaunted United States Marines Corps. Her eyes are a bright emerald green, her hair is black and she sports the typical military buzz cut. When on the job with MACE, she typically wears a camouflage uniform appropriate for the environment she’s working in, sometimes this will include a gasmask, and sometimes it won’t. The uniform will, as is standard with MACE, have Kevlar and other protective elements incorporated into it, such as rubber to deal with electricity hurling mutants, fire retardant materials to deal with fire mutants and such as.
Weapons: Typically, she carries a Heckler & Koch HK416 assault rifle, a combat knife and a Heckler & Koch HK45 pistol. She also carries an Arc Caster for nonlethal takedowns. However, the load out will vary mission from mission. Certain weapons work better against certain mutants and only a fool would try to use an assault rifle against a mutant made of stone.
Skills: She has gone through extensive training in the USMC and is, for all intents and purposes, an expert when it comes to combat, survival and other such things. She is an excellent physical condition, is extremely skilled with fire arms and in melee combat. In short, she is exactly what one would expect of a soldier chosen to defend the common people from the horrible threat the Mutants pose to the world. She is also well-read, she particularly enjoys military Sci-Fi, feeling that the future is always fun to speculate about…..mix that in with explosions and drama and you have a winning tale.
Personality: Samantha protects people; she views it as her calling. She protects her nation, her soldiers and if she has any strength left for it, herself. She joined the USMC because she felt she had to step up, had to do something about the **** the world was becoming. She has served with distinction. Her bravery and courage has never come into question. She is dedicated to her job and her cause, realizing full well the threat the mutants pose. She doesn’t want to kill them, and will avoid it if she can but if they go hostile, she sees no problem with putting them in the dirt. She will not, however, fire on unarmed civilians. Those are the people she’s supposed to be protecting and ordering her to do so is a good way to lose your teeth.
Weakness: She is a normal, albeit extraordinarily brave, human in a world of mutants and magic. Without her weapons, a fight against a mutant has little chance of going well for her.
Bio: Samantha joined the army at a young age and has more or less made a career out of it. She attended college during her spare time and is currently the proud owner of a BA in English….which means she’ll be in the armed forces for a good while yet, considering the economic situation. She doesn’t mind this however, viewing the opportunity to do some good in the world as one well worth taking. When her unit was folded into MACE, she went with them. She currently commands a platoon of men and is stationed in New York city until new orders filter through. The promotion was appreciated as well.
