Frances 'Ces' Briggs Age:
The typical Shrina MP loadout, except the baton is replaced with her own preferred full metal staff, which she will use as her main weapon when given the chance. The staff is encased in a leather pouch that is attached to her belt, along the small of her back. As it is collapsible, it does stay there until she needs it. Materia:Appearance:
When Ces is on duty, she will find any excuse to do away with the bulky, awful looking helmet. She swears that she had gotten some hand-me-down and it smells of rookie's sweat.
Off duty, Ces is often found to be dressed very casually. She's a big fan of using many thin layers of clothing like tank tops over spaghetti straps rather than a blouse or a sweater. Other than that, most of her wardrobe is occasion and weather permitting, if she can help it. Backstory:
Frances was born and raised in Kalm, a relatively small community compared to its neighbouring Midgar. Her parents owned and ran the local bakery, filling the young Ces's life with wonderful odors and fresh goods. As much as there was to enjoy about it, there was something that kept drawing the girl away from aspirations of the family business. It wasn't quite war, but it was a sense of justice.
Ces had known Yuge when he was in Kalm. Okay, maybe know is the wrong word, but she knew about him and his family's background as guards, soldiers and the like. She was 6 when the Recreant family moved to Midgar and that only made sense to the little girl. It was a bigger city so there must be bigger things to do, right!? For the next 10 years, Frances worked hard in her studies, played 'Knight' at the beach, and kept fit until she could join Shrinra's military program.
It was there that Ces had learned of her aptitude for medicine and Materia. She wasn't much for fabricating the healing salves and potions, but did well enough in its application that she had been slotted to become a medic. There were still the terrible, occasional guard duty shifts, but Ces continued to show her worth in the field of taking care of others in combat situations that she was eventually signed onto Delta Squad. Led by none other than Yuge Recreant.
Frances hardly remembers him as a sort of backwards role model to become a part of the Shrina military, but she does at least remember him as a kid of Kalm. Whether he remembers or not is hardly going to hurt her feelings.
1.1: Seaside Breeze -
Inspired by memories of home, Frances can project the same happy, warm, fuzzy feelings that she gets from them onto herself and her allies. Grants them to the will to continue on and fight for the chance to experience it all again.
Maaaaaan. Limit breaks are hard to think up. I'll get to them later. Ahaha.
