Aliens - Hadley's Hope Character ApplicationCharacter Name:
No tattoos or scars, wears glasses.
Student of Engineering Designs, Part-Time Security (In-Training)Personality:
Friendly but a bit unhappy, Teresa is a young woman who is not very happy about her life at the colony. She is studying still, but has grudgingly taken up working as security, part-time. This is mostly learning from more experienced security how to do things, but she has found herself in some trouble and learned to defend herself against the average drunk idiot at the colony.
She is not really that good fighter though, and mainly hopes to maintain peace, and enjoys a little bit of liberty at having security access around the colony at times. It has helped her explore some less-used sections too, something that she does to stave off what she calls the inevitable death by boredom. She is hoping to get away from the colony in the future when she has finished her education and gathered some money to pay for not only a trip away but a stay somewhere else until she has landed herself a job.
She thinks she has to get off the planet before it kills her someday. When she thought of this, she meant her spirit, but she had no idea of what lay ahead.Background:
Daughter of Maria and Jacob Gaulman, Teresa is a semi-independant young woman that wanted to move out of her parents care as soon as she could, but given how she is not yet earning much and still has studies to complete, she has relied on their support while begrudgingly working for the benefit of the colony. Unlike her parents, she has zero frontier spirit, and hopes to get away from the colony as soon as she can get herself all she needs.
Teresa was the top of her class in engineering classes, wanting to design and improve various machinery from engines to scanners, and to adjust and optimise devices. She had a bright future ahead of her, but one thing stopped her from being hired. Nobody wanted to hire someone who only had theoretical experience, demanding her to acquire a year or two of practical experience before re-applying. She has to get dirty and do the wrench-work to get further, and she knew this when she arrived to the colony. With more time practicing with machines, she could eventually advance to making new designs, or so she was promised at least.
She has been taking some lessons from the engineers at the colony, seeing how they have come up with ways to work around problems, and getting real life experience, but the repetitious work in maintaining things is not appealing to her much, as she likes to have variety that she had in designing. For this purpose, she decided to split her time between studies, and another kind of work.
She has worked as part-time security for a few months, learning the basics but not yet ready to take on the job entirely alone usually, rather accompanying someone else at jobs to learn the way things are done. She is expecting to be kicked out on her own on some of the security jobs soon though, and in the meanwhile she considers the security-access a toy to play with, and explore the colony's less-frequented areas.
