Summary

Stealth Infiltration expert, moderately successful at doing face to face stuff, Pretty damn good with a submachine gun, especially her pride and joy, the limited edition Ingram Smartgun X named, 'Primus'.

Goals

Integrate further with metahuman society

Work her way up the foodchain

Make fat stacks of cash to have a LUXURIOUS lifestyle in every sense of the word possible

Background

As a vulpine shifter, she's still very much a student of the ways of the street, though in some regards it's quite similar to the way things were as an animal. She doesn't know WHY she can become a human, nor does she particularly care, instead jumping into metahuman society headfirst with the goal of putting her days of living in the wild behind her! Like many foxes, an urban environment is hardly unusual, and the same basic principles for survival apply: Be the biggest, toughest bastard in the room, or else identify who that is and stay out of their way. Better, even, if they don't know you're there until you spring your trap and are ready to take them on on your own terms! In a world where everyone's packing heat (or else asking to be a victim) she treasures her Ingram Smartgun X, lovingly nicknamed 'Primus' above most of her other possessions, as it's the primary way she makes a living (as a bodyguard and gun for hire) AND protects herself!

She first met Zero Chill working for him as a bodyguard. An unassuming young woman with deadly skill with her preferred weapon of choice, she impressed him enough to be given a shot at some low-level shadow-world errands and such, unknowingly for the Yakuza. Often she would run packages from one member to another when they couldn't meet face to face, and once or twice she carried out a hit, or acted as an enforcer when someone refused to pay protection, and made enough of a positive impression to continue getting work from Zero, who began offering her services to other clients as well while his confidence in her proficiency grew. She has the mindset, and a certain degree of talent, now all that's left is to see if she has the mettle to put it to use in making her dreams of a lavish lifestyle come true...

Narrative Significant Qualities

Brand Loyalty (Product, Ingram Smartgun X) - was employed as a tester for the Smartgun X during live trials for various law enforcement groups, and after impressing the director of the Smartgun X project with her marksmanship, was rewarded with a special-fabricated Smartgun X, named 'Primus' with the idea that whatever she used the visually unique weapon for, it would end up being free advertising.

Did You Just Call Me Dumb? - Sarcastic, and all too quick to snark, she has an instinctual urge to work in subtle backhanded compliments and other hard-to-catch, insultory turns of phrase. Sometimes she underestimates her conversational adversary and isn't quiiite oblique enough to avoid getting in trouble for this habit.

Uneducated - She's an animal. She can learn practical-use things, but she never had formal education the way a human child might have...

Allergy (Uncommon, Mild, Chocolate) - Chocolate itself is outright toxic for canids, but especially when shapesifted she can ALMOST get away with it... though she'll still suffer severe fits of repeated sneezing. Easy enough to avoid in the first place, certainly, but chocolate is delightfully tasty, and animal impulses can be hard to control in the absence of immediate, imminent danger!

Combat Junkie - Part and parcel of her animalistic nature. When her blood's up, and her Fight or Flight instincts have chosen Fight, she goes all in! Not the kinda gal to pull any punches, she's every bit as fierce as a beast with nowhere left to run.

Emotional Attachment (her Ingram Smartgun X, named 'Primus') - Seriously. For how financially challenged she is, this thing is her baby, and her primary means of bringing home the soyloaf, so to speak. If she were to lose it... (and she's NEVER going to simply misplace it, someone would have to take it from her) well, suffice to say that finding it would become her #1 priority!

Family Curse - What it says on the tin. She's not going to be out hunting for drugs, but if they're introduced to her system she's genetically predisposed to becoming addicted. Because her parents (who were actual foxes) were laboratory test animals or something? :P

Appearance

Clothing

She wears a colorful, flashy hoodie in bright blues and pinks, along with a matching helmet. The color scheme extends to her hair when she's in good enough money to afford to keep it dyed, otherwise it's a comparatively dull black. The jacket itself isn't ultra clingy, but neither is it noticeably baggy, and in keeping with the bright, bubbly nature of the rest of her appearance, a miniskirt and long, thigh-high leggings serve to cover most of the skin below the waist except for a few inches between the two garments.

Matrix Persona

An actual, anthropomorphic nine-tailed fox, formed of ever-swirling patterns of blue and pink light. Facial features are hidden behind a porcelain mask of an off-white color, and voice is rather higher-pitched than her usual voice.
