Shandy aka Shawnee - born Dana S. RobertsAge:
CaretakerPhysical Appearance :
Shandy is about 5'6" with long, black hair, small pert breasts and a winning smile that she will flash at anyone. She's never considered herself hot or irresistible, but learned quickly that a flash of skin, a bending at the hips or an extra little swing of her hips could actually create opportunities to open doors. So she is confident of her body and feels little need to hide it.Distinguishing Traits:
Shandy got used to living on the fast lane. Patience is something that doesn't come easily for her. She needs to be moving on, acting, doing something, working towards a goal. Before her big break she worked hard and tireless on breaking in. She's nothing if not persistent - right down to tenacity. Some call her stubborn, but it has been this characteristic that has kept her up and running and climbing the ladder of success. Though she might seem all work and no play, nothing could be further from the truth. Shandy came to like parties - she came to liking being the center of attention, dancing, singing and drinking...History:
Before she crash landed her in the middle of nowhere, Shandy was an up and coming R&B starlet after having been the "quota-black-girl" in a girlie-band. Being the second oldest of six kids Dana took over responsibility early which left her level headed, but at the same time the simple life left her yearning for more... for riches. Her early years in school were very unspectacular with average to poor grades until a music instructor in her high school discovered her voice. With her teacher's conviction and support Dana let herself become the solo artist in her high school choir which let her to get a first taste of the stage... a taste she liked.
With a grant and scholarships for african-american girls Dana started college to become a physical therapist - to appease her dad, who was very particular that she needed to study something substantial... with a future. However with the continued support of some of her former teacher's friends and an unbreakable will to make it big, she scored a place on a five girl pop troupe. She dropped out of college on her senior year for a cross-country tour. Though she came to regret this decision at first when the band broke up halfway across the country, she turned her predicament into her fortune. Trapped in Boston with no money to return home she started waiting tables and as luck would have it was heard singing along to some of the coverbands playing at the joint. Two years later - living under her stage name Shandy - her first solo album is nearing gold status and after paying off her parent's house, she wanted to take the first vacation of her life...
She never learned anything useful in this kind of environment except for cooking, cleaning and looking after her younger siblings - leaving her as a care taker. What little she remembers from her college years isn't enough to qualify her as a Medic, but she will help out if instructed properly.Sexuality:

Shandy is a person of extremes - she can be cheery, bubbly, with a careless attitude, cheeky humor and always trying to cheer people up. On the other hand she can extremely level headed, logical to the point of being pedantic.PLAYER ONS AND OFFS: Me's O/O thread.
For those wondering: Any similarities to deceased persons are purely coincidental. I first wrote the bio before searching the net.
One question from my side: I have seen a lot of different paces when it comes to "jumping into the action" and was wondering if this more focused on action or more focused on plot with action being a passtime? On a scale from 1 being all plot and no action to 10 being porn-style all action and no plot, how would you rate this game?
