22Occupation before outbreak:
NurseDescription of character:Background:
Olivia always had a big heart, and wanting to help others led her to becoming a nurse. Everything was going great, she was even looking into going to med school, but then the outbreak happened.
She was working when an influx of patients came in, and the hospital was swamped. No one knew what to do and it seemed hopeless. Eventually, the 'walkers' took over the hospital, but not before she stole some supplies. She made it back home with her friend, another nurse named Marie, filling her duffle bag with what she could and took off.
Olivia and Marie made it close to the outskirts of the city, but they were ambushed after their car broke down and her friend didn't make it. She did all she could for Marie, fighting off the group of walkers and getting away with Marie's body, but she couldn't save her friend. It took a while for her to move on, she didn't want to leave Marie's body laying in the street. Eventually, she continued on, her instincts to survive overriding everything else. Now, all by herself, she looks for others, armed with a machete she found. Skills:
Learned how to shoot a BB gun at camp when she was younger, does that count? She is a more than capable nurse, and has a steady hand. This makes her good with knives, because she knows where to cut that will do the most damage. She is no hunter, but she and her mother tended a garden and she knows how to grow plants and which plants are safe to eat, and there are even some that can help with injuries or illnesses. Her father taught her how to fish some, but that is about as far as her food gathering skills go.Belongings:
Dark purple duffle bag. In it are various medical supplies, tools, and medicine. She also has an extra change of clothes, a small blanket, and a few comforts of home, like a toothbrush, toothpaste and a hairbrush. Her machete is the only weapon she has that she knows how to use, but she also found a Glock
and some ammo that she is holding onto.
(Of course I can edit the last bit of the biography if we are already, or even mostly, grouped up.)
