Here's what I was thinking for a character. I did a write up for another RP initially so that's why it's already formatted into a layout.
Real Name: Veronica Santangelo
Profession: Scribe, Procurement Specialist
Origin: Alternative Earth
Resides: Mojave Wasteland.
Weapons: Pneumatic Power Fist
, Overrated Wit
Fighting Style: Veronica Santangelo likes to soften her opponents with casual smalltalk on a wide array of subjects in a vain effort to disarm her foes with the power of dialogue.
When it comes to actual fisticuffs, she keeps her hands held high, leads with a left jab and prefers an artificially empowered right straight straight to the jaw or center body mass. She's also a proficient counter-puncher and emphasizes both a strong defense as well as looking for a big punch to land. While she prefers the right straight, she will mix it up with other power punches but rarely develops combinations as she is ultimately a powerful puncher and counter puncher. Unlike many modern contemporary boxers who maintain an orthodox defensive stance or roll behind their shoulders, her stance is a classical low one, sometimes to the extent of leaning forward and bending low. This was an amateur technique common in boxing competitions where landed hits were more important then effective hits. Due to the fact she has a pneumatic power fist on her right hand, she tends to reason maximizing her own ability to land hits and minimizing her own damage thanks to effective defense, lends well to this stance.
Alignment: She's a good girl.
Biography: Veronica Santangelo grew up in post-apocalyptic California as a member of the isolationist paramilitary organization known as the Brotherhood of Steel. Her parents were members of the Brotherhood, and so were their parents... and their parents and so forth to the extent that she was basically born into it. The Brotherhood of Steel has roots in the pre-Great War US Army and is dedicated to the preservation and acquisition of advanced technology, ostensibly for the protection of humankind from itself. Their zealotry in upholding their purpose of the preservation of technology and the insular nature of their organization has increased the paranoia of the group to the point of being almost hostile to outsiders. It was in this atmosphere that Veronica Santangelo grew up in.
Having lost both of her parents in a forgotten skirmish over something that likely seemed important at the time, Veronica grew up with a talent in three things. Punching people, procuring things, and fixing lost technology. Her effusive and extroverted nature combined with her sarcastic wit has annoyed many of her fellow Brotherhood members. Despite thinking of them as a family, Veronica always found herself at odds with her brothers and sisters in wanting to end their systematic paranoia and fear of 'outsiders' to little avail. Her progressive attitudes alienated her in some respects, and perhaps because of this, despite her other talents, she was made a 'procurement specialist' for the Brotherhood or basically a glorified shopper who purchases the mundane and sundry items that a militaristic society of quasi-religious techno-fetishists often overlook... like groceries and toiletries. Other personal tragedies plagued her as well, including the loss of her mentor, Father Elijah, and the departure of her one true love from the Brotherhood as well. (while the Brotherhood doesn't have anything against homosexual relationships, it is frowned upon considering the nature of the organizations limited genepool)
Recent events however have given her hope for the future. During one of her forays to the surface (her family lives in a bunker after all) procuring supplies, she encountered a Courier and on the spur of the moment, joined him in his adventures. Traveling side by side and occasionally with others, they fought the good fight, saved the day and defeated a great evil that threatened the livelihood of all of the inhabitants of the Mojave Wasteland, Brotherhood and Outsider. Despite this, she ultimately decided at this time to leave the Brotherhood. Despite the positive change that she had enacted, and the fact that the Brotherhood decided to ever so slowly open themselves up to having relations with the Outsiders, it was too little, too late for Veronica. Despite remaining friendly with them when she encountered their surface patrols, she decided her destiny lay on the road and spent her future looking forward, instead of focusing on the memories of the past. Her time on the surface gave her a taste for adventure, fighting the good fight and finding a new purpose in the future, seeking out new roads to follow, knowledge both new and lost and to deliver the gift of punching to anyone who she deems deserves it.
