Half-Caucasian, Half-LatinoAppearance: Abilities:
Before its destruction, Gillian was a repair technician for the mining operations on Regus 4, so she has quite an extensive knowledge of space-age machinery, spacecraft included. Her knowledge hardly compares to the Doctor's, of course, but that's hardly to be expected of any of his companions.Equipment:
A small toolkit with enough gear to match several of the functions of a Sonic Screwdriver, albeit much slower, as well as a small-remoted controlled camera droid, useful for both spying from long distances and getting into places a human wouldn't fit. Can also do some minor repairs on its own.Personality:
Gillian is a woman with a lot of conviction and confidence in herself, perhaps enough to be a fair bit stubborn. She's one of the companions most likely to stick to her beliefs if she thinks the Doctor is making a mistake or a poor judgment call, acting out against his demands if she's certain he's not in his right mind. The destruction of her home colony has left this side of her somewhat cooled down, but she is slowly recovering with time and the help of friends. While opinionated, she is a good woman, and will go to any means to bring about a good outcome. When not in the middle of a life-or-death matter, she's even quite fun and friendly.Background Information:
There was nothing too remarkable about Gillian's life before the events that brought the Doctor into her life, at least nothing remarkable compared to what his day-to-day experience was. She was born into a poverty-level family in England during the late 22nd century, but managed to achieve higher education through a lot of hard work, gaining certification as a ship technician. This line of work eventually led to her working maintenance on a supply ship that ran through colonies and nearby systems, until her work caught the eye of the mayor of the colony on Regus 4, who asked her to stay on the colony to do all varieties of repair and technological improvement there. Preferring the exotic environment of a colony to the cramped quarters of a cargo ship or the boring familiarity of Earth, Gillian agreed.
Gillian spent five years of her life working on Regus 4, not even anticipating any danger when the war between the human empire and the Selachian Empire began. When the selachians finally did arrive to attack her colony, however, they weren't the only ones; the Cybermen were there to meet them. The Cybermen had come to one of the first known colonies to be destroyed by the selechians, expecting to meet with the race's military leaders and work out an alliance to wipe out humanity once and for all. History would have been rewritten with the humans losing instead of the selechians had the Doctor not arrived in his blue box to quell the problem.
Much laser fire and much cleverness ensued at that point, but it was Gillian who rigged the fleeing Cybermen's ship so that it crashed into a nearby moon instead of escaping to contact the selechians again, doing both the Doctor and humanity a great favor. However, when it finally came time for Regus 4 to be destroyed, as history demanded, the Doctor once again had to break his own rules. He couldn't leave Gillian behind to die when she had put herself in harm's way to help him, so he picked her up and deposited her somewhere safe and inconspicuous in time, at least until she had recovered enough emotionally to give time travel a go...
