Lily Anne MontplaisirSex:
New AvalonOriginal Faction:
She's 5'6" tall, weighs around 120 lbs and has a thin and lithe build. Her eyes are grey-blue and her natural hair color is a light strawberry blond, but she dies it cotton candy pink, so it's (understandably) what most people remember her by. Her complexion is very pale, and - probably due in no small part to her privileged lifestyle - mostly unblemished.Background:
Fortunate enough to be born into a rather wealthy, and - perhaps even more importantly - well connected family, Lily never wanted for anything while growing up, nor did she have to go through any considerable hardships. She became fascinated with BattleMechs from a young age after being exposed to the arena duels on Solaris VII while visiting relatives. The cheers, the atmosphere and the spectacle of it all left her in awe and haunted Lily's dreams ever since, so she knew that it was what she was destined for.
Surprisingly, her parents were actually extremely supportive, encouraging their daughter to chase her ambitions even though it most likely wasn't the path that they would have chosen for her themselves. In fact, they even went as far as to pull a few strings in order to get Lily accepted into the New Avalon Institute of Science when her grades ended up being just below the cutoff. It was at the Institute's College of Military Science that she learned how to pilot a Mech, in addition to a whole bunch of other stuff that she hated but had no choice but to endure.
After graduating, she made her way to Solaris VII and proptly did her best to forget all of that useless military crap that had been crammed into her head. Over the next few years, Lily gradually made her way up through the gladiator ranks, achieving a moderate level of fame and even picking up a couple of sponsors along the way to help with the upkeep costs of her machine. At some point, however, even though she was still doing pretty well and continuously improving, the arena seemingly lost some of its charm and appeal.
Lily found herself longing for something else, something even more exciting with even bigger stakes. Real world combat. The military was out of the question, since she abhorred the excessive strictness, so a mercenary company was the obvious choice. Finding that sort of work proved easy enough, and with the respectable reputation that she'd earned from her duels, Lily could even afford to be somewhat picky. She ended up coming to an agreement with an already well established and fairly accomplished merc company, and so began the pursuit for new thrills and adventures.Personality:
More often than not, Lily ends up being the life of any party, which is fine by her since she feeds on attention like a fat kid on cake. She's outgoing, adventurous and loves to have a good time and to make everyone else have a good time too. She's always joking around and being sarcastic, so anyone who lacks a sense of humor probably isn't going to enjoy her company all that much, but she gets along well with most people. Lily takes things pretty easily for the most part, though she can be prone to fits of passion at times, depending on the situation. Reciprocity is one of the most important things to her; she'll gladly bend over backwards for those whom she considers to be her friends, but expects any relationship to work both ways, and takes it very personally when she feels betrayed or let down.Speciality Skills:
Thanks to her military training, Lily knows her way around most commonly used firearms, but her marksmanship is no better than average. She's much more impressive at close combat, having gotten additional training in the hopes that it would help with piloting her Mech in melee situations. She's not really sure how much of a difference it truly makes, but she likes to think that it gives her slightly better instincts. Lily's main hobby is dancing, which she's been doing for just over 20 years, so she's pretty good at it by now. Apart from that, she also loves gambling and games in general and is a bit of a shark when it comes to that.BattleMech CharacteristicsChassis:
Heavy, 65 tonsCallsign:
Unlike her former Mech, a Hatchetman which was painted dark charcoal and covered in hot pink leopard print decals, Lily has opted to keep her new machine a neutral, sandy tan color. In her opinion, it makes it look more fearsome on the battlefield, like an anonymous ghost wreaking havoc. Since the Axman is still pretty much brand new, the armor doesn't show many war scars, just a few minor dings and scratches. The only detail that distinguishes it is the symbol on the right leg, a a black spider inside of a pink circle - the spinner of fate
