Here is my girl. I intentionally chose low power Biotics so as not to be overpowered and I declined the use of a heavy weapon for the same reason (replaced with a sem-auto). I also did it because it doesn't fit her particular way of fighting as a Spectre.
Her history is not complete yet, as usual, I'm not sure what to do with it -face palms-. I'm putting up the sheet for initial comments and what nots.
Oh Dark, are shields considered an automatic part of any character, in your book?
: 389 Class:
Tactical stealth combat specialistPersonality
: Ascarra is a warrior Asari, and in the eyes of most, behaves accordingly. What most don't see is that she is a lover of life. While her duties keep her busy a lot, she uses her free time to socialize, dance, and copulate. While she does not mate to reproduce, she does find a sense of minor spirituality to it and a sense of freedom away from her life of constant toil, tension, and ever present threat of death upon her or those she deals with.
Serious when needed and as with most Asari, amiable as well. Ascarra prefers to avoid emotional entanglement when on a mission and can come across as cold on occasion because of her desire to focus. She is not immune to advances and if she believes someone is serious about a relationship, she will reciprocate enough of the feelings to keep them from believing she is giving the cold shoulder. One night stands are kept strictly during her times when off-duty.
Ascarra enjoys the challenges of her position and accepts any mission with earnest respect for its particulars. Every mission is viewed with healthy respect and a calculating eye. Ascarra has remained successful for over three generations because of her ability and willingness to assess herself in regards to a mission.
She is willing to adjust her tactics and strategies to suit a mission. She is far from rigid but she is not highly flexible either. She has her preferences and many stubbornly remain in place even if other aspects of her approach change from mission to mission. Why change what works, after all?Appearance: History:
Ascarra was nominated for the position of Spectre because of her ability foremost as a Commando, but because she represented a key Asari trait; the ability to deal with any species evenly and fairly when needed. By no means a perfect being, Ascarra was still viewed as a prime candidate.
Her first few years as a Spectre were demanding and stressed her more than she admitted. That ended eventually however, as she adapted to the demands put upon her.
Ascarra became a Spectre half-way through the events leading up to the full scale invasion by the Reapers. During this time Ascarra never personally met Shepard. Their paths did not cross until after the Reapers had been defeated and Shepard was allowed a reprieve from the upheaval. Ascarra held a respect for Shepard and still does.
During the Reaper war, Ascarra honed her already considerable skills to a fine keen edge. The Reapers remain her greatest challenge and through this challenge she came to be a formidable Spectre. After the war, she and Shepard worked on a few missions together. He was one of the few beings she had ever met that she knew she would submit to if he had desired it. His heart had lain elsewhere and so Ascarra put any feelings for him out of mind and focused on the duties they both shared.
Years after Shepard's passing, the galaxy seemed to fall back into its normal rhythm – which meant criminals and upstarts began making themselves known again. For several years, Ascarra found herself helping the Council and Alliance Militaries alike, deal with countless situations.
One such situation had been the First Clone conflict; a situation which saw the beginning of the Krogan making clones of themselves to recreate their empire. The first attempts at cloning had proven troublesome and saw many of the clones going on a rampage. While the end result of the conflict was relatively minor, the Council had not wished to see another Krogan uprising and so sent in several Spectres to take care of things; with the militaries as backup.
Shortly after the First Clone conflict, Ascarra had several run ins with the Cerberus organization. The run ins were increasingly more tense as it seemed the organization grew in its anti-alien sentiment with the passing years. Aside from the run ins, Ascarra never had to move against the organization. The Human's seemed to want to deal with Cerberus on their own.
Before the Terminus Coalition formed in earnest, Ascarra had been on several missions to determine what was going on. The results of the missions had pointed to the creation of the Coalition, but there wasn't enough to prompt any action against the formation of a government. The Council had always been reluctant to take action against the Terminus region. Biotic Powers:
Barrier, Stasis, and Throw (Ascarra prefers less overt powers due to her stealth emphasis; Throw as the exception)Weaponry: Pistol
: Ascarra prefers the Nali StealthV pistol thanks to its high level of accuracy and damage. The weapon has a moderate amount of shots but its shining aspect is its built in sound suppression technology. The silencer is nearly silent, making it her prime weapon for most kills she makes. The gun Nali StealthV does not have a flash reducer, so when the gun is fired, it can be visually spotted. Has the Kinetic Coil X and Combat Optics X upgrade.Sniper Rifle
: The Reptor is a combat specialists dream. It doubles as an assault rifle and a sniper rifle. It lacks the range of a dedicated sniper rifle but has enough range to suit the role well enough for any but the diehard sniper who absolutely needs maximum distance from target. Its assault capability is strong and was not heavily compromised. It boasts the same amount of damage as a regular assault rifle, but lacks a little in the cool special upgrade department expected with the normal assault rifle. Has the Kinetic Coil X and Combat Optics X upgrade. No Heavy Weapon/Instead a Sub-machine Gun
: Ascarra shuns the use of heavy weapons unless absolutely necessary. They will compromise her stealth, thus she avoids them. Instead she uses the Clasher 86, a sub-machine which Ascarra uses when she wants to lay down suppression fire in the event of a need to escape a tight situation. She prefers to reserve her assault rifle for tough targets or more precise kills. The Clasher serves to “duck heads” as she likes to say, essentially illiciting the reaction out of enemies which results in them ducking for cover. Has the Kinetic Coil X and Combat Optics X upgrade. Armor
: Xyo-con IV Medium armor. The armor has the Kinetic Exoskeleton X upgrade which enhances her shield, shield recharge, and mobility. The armor is pitch black. Sexual Orientation:
Asari mate with any gender (so bi-sexual fits the best)Preferred Position:
Dominant, though is perfectly comfortable submitting to someone who intrigues her enough to give in too. Generally though, she controls the tone of the encounter. Being the warrior type, its just natural to be in charge.
