Let me know how this works.Name:
Brandy doesn't use anything in combat that wasn't made by her own two hands. However, there is a lot
she can make with her own two hands. Grenades, bombs, plastic explosives, satchel charges, and even rockets for her Heavy Weapons friend can all be stitched together in her lab, in varieties of explosive, elemental, EMP, acidic, and even flavored. Of course, this mostly has to made beforehand; she can only improvise rudimentary explosives in the midst of combat, but she always comes with more than enough boom-boom on hand.
Of course, her close friends know that weaponry is hardly the only thing she makes in her lab...Materia:Appearance:Backstory:
Born to a Junon dockworker and a Wutai sailor who really had no interest in being together after one night of ill-advised intimacy, Brandy spent a whole lot of her childhood traveling around, spending a few months with her mother in Junon, then shipping over to Wutai to be with her father, who, at the very least, started working jobs on land so he didn't have to make the girl sail with him everywhere. Both parents cared for the girl and did as much as they could to make her happy, but, of course, having two different sets of friends and two different cultures and languages to learn in two different regions made building a stable lifestyle difficult for the girl. So, naturally, as she got to thinking age, she started looking inward for something to cling to. By the time she was 10, she found it: science.
Brandy loved to learn, but not just anything. She didn't care about the historical significance of Junon, or the writings of the great Wutai storytellers. No, she didn't really care about what some dead people wrote or did at all; she just wanted to know what made their bodies function in the first place, and what made nature work around them. And the more she studied the hard sciences, the deeper she wanted to go, until chemistry and biology became her main views. The very essence of life. She set up chemical labs at both of her homes and conducted extensive, often nonsense experiments with whatever chemicals she could get her hands on. Of course, being a teenager by this point, when she discovered how certain chemicals could have relaxing, entertaining effects on the body, she started to follow this path of experimentation quite zealously, inviting her friends over to help test her results on those lazy afternoons, when her parents weren't looking.
Of course, however many dozens of mind-altering substances her research was beginning to create, one couldn't deny that, whether by hard work or by gifted nature, the girl was a genius when it came to chemicals. She ended up graduating early to be taken in by the Shinra Science Institute, where she worked as an intern for sometime before being hired into its permanent ranks. The money she started pulling in was enough to help her mother start an early retirement, but before she could do the same for her dad, the war with Wutai broke out and she was left unable to contact the man, leaving her to wonder whether or not he had been drafted, and whether he or not he was alive if he had.
Still, she didn't really know the reasons behind the war, and Shinra wasn't exactly eager to spread the truth about who the aggressor was, so she remained at her post, simply hoping the whole thing would blow over. Thankfully, she had never given up her old habits of producing some recreational compounds in her spare time, so she was able to keep her mind at ease through the ordeal, up until she got the offer to leave the lab and try some field work (secretly being seen as a liability to the more unethical research that would soon be moving into the HQ's on-site labs). It was a strange offer, but, always excited to try new things, Brandy went through some basic combat training and joined the military's Demolitions department, where she would eventually join up with Delta Squad. Now was the time where things would really get interesting.Theme:Limit Breaks1.1: Smoke Bomb Brandy whips up a bomb with chemicals from her more personal stash and lobs it. Enemies caught in the small gas radius become completely pacified, completely non-inclined to attack for a little while.1.2: Clusterscrew Brandy takes a satchel charge, ties several other explosives to it, and throws it enemy-ward. The initial blast launches the other explosives around the area before they detonate as well. High collateral damage.2.1: 2.2: 3.1: 3.2: 4.1:
