Ok..so here's my girl. What do you all thing? :)Name:
Reese ClancyTeam Role:
GryfterSkills, talents and training:
Reese possesses two engineering degrees from CalTech, the first being mechanical and the second being electrical. She has an innate understanding of how machines work that caused her parents no end to frustration as they would often find her having disassembled yet another appliance or bit of kit found around the house. In high school, she was often the only girl found in the school's shop classes...be it metal shop, wood shop or even auto shop. Later in her life she found that her resourcefulness and a wide range of contacts made her into the perfect fixer. She can lay her hands on whatever her team needs...and if she can't find it, she'll make it. Reese is also proficient with firearms and a number of different explosive types. While it was Reese's fixing abilities that earned her the well-respected reputation that she has, she is a capable gryfter as well though her gryfting work tends to be in overall support of the main players. Record:
Does not have a criminal record, though her name is known among security experts. Weakness:
Is not a violent person and will go out of her way not to harm anyone. She's no good in a hand to hand fight either. Personality:
Reese is incredibly intelligent and can figure most things out. She is very confident, sociable and can get along with nearly anyone. To those that don't know her professionally, she comes across as the sweet, girl-next-door type. She is aware that others find her attractive, but doesn't naturally flaunt it (though she is certainly willing to use those assets if needed for a con). Despite what she does, she is trusting of those on her team and expects them to trust her as well. She prefers to stay out of the limelight, which is what allows her to work well with a team.History:
The Clancy family is a typical American family. There was no history of criminal activity there, but Reese was always a little different than the rest of her family. Though just as intelligent as her mother, father and sister, she found she was not satisfied with her life as she was expected to live it. Growing up in California, she found that she had an affinity for theater and a talent for acting. As much fun as she had with the school theater groups, she still found herself drawn to the technical side of things....and when she graduated high school, went on to CalTech to pursue an engineering degree. Unable to decide between the two, she dual-majored and graduated with BS degrees in both Mechanical and Electrical Engineering.
It was also during her college career that she discovered another side to the world. Reese found that it was possible to get people to give her things if she came at them from the right angle and asked in just the right way. A few small, early successes made her more curious and she dug deeper....eventually diving deep into the world of the con. For the most part, her cons were limited to her friends at school....little games, tricks and practical jokes. However, the more she learned, the more curious she became and after graduation she made her family believe that she had received a job offer from a company in London. When Reese decided that she wanted to try her hand at gryfting....she decided that it would be best to do it somewhere other than home. That way, she always had a place to bolt back to if needed.
After the move, she started out with some of the small cons she had read about. These emboldened her to learn new skills such a picking pockets as well as locks. Reese began to see the world in a new way....and met people with similar views. She found that if she was smart about it, she could be set for life. So she kept at it...until one day when she met a man by the name of Ashe Morgan. Reese had heard of him.....knew that he worked with the likes of Albert Stroller and Mickey Bricks. Ashe apparently saw something in her because he took her under his wing and showed her the world he lived in...the world of a Fixer in the Long Con. He taught her that she could use her skills to become a very valuable asset to a team of con artists. Long Cons required props....sets....gadgets and gizmos. The man or woman who could get those things whenever they were needed would always have a job. So Reese watched and learned....and then went out into the world again to earn her reputation.
