Mostly done, just need to do her appearance.
Character Name: Nia Yeboah
Player Name: Florence
Specialization: Heavy Weapons, Close Quarters Combat
Personality: Having lived a hellish nightmare for most of her life, Nia is not what most people would consider well-adjusted. She considers herself more at home on the battlefield than she does anywhere else. In battle, she is completely focused on the mission, letting her adrenaline block out any pesky doubts or fears or guilt. Outside of battle, she does what she can to avoid thinking about the horrors of war, and seeks escape wherever she can find it. If she's not training or maintaining her gear, she's off pursuing whatever sort of recreation she can find.
History: Growing up in an unstable region of Africa, Nia knew little else but the chaos of war from even a young age. As a child, she witnessed the brutal deaths of her parents, only to be forcibly drafted into the army that had killed them, as a child soldier. At that time, she was still living as a male. During this period of her life, war was her normal. She learned to kill at an age where most children would still be learning the alphabet.
Somehow, she managed to survive the hell that she was born into, and as a teenager, escaped it. She was part of an escort, guarding a truck carrying valuable supplies. When the truck came under attack, and she witnessed her allies falling around her, she saw her chance. Grabbing what she could, she ran, killing anyone who got in her way, friend or foe. She ran until her feet gave out under her. She had already been forced into various cybernetic augmentation, usually of the shady and poor-quality kind, which were as noticeable as they were cheap, and she knew that most could tell who she was, or rather what she was, at just a glance. On this continent, at least.
She sold what she could as fast as she could, and managed to get a plain ticket for America. There, she hoped, she could create a new life for herself. It was in America that she'd have time to discover her gender identity, and start living as her true self. Still, she was haunted by the memories of her past. More than simply having nightmares, though, she gradually realized that she simply couldn't adjust to life as a civilian. Not only was she mentally unable to 'turn off' the instincts and habits she'd learned through war, but she faced a fair amount of prejudice and discrimination due to her cybernetics. But, she reasoned, that didn't mean she couldn't fight for herself for once. The life of a PMC called out to her.
Her favorite is a modified and upgraded antique M61 Vulcan rotary cannon. The gun has been had various parts swapped out for more modern technology, reducing jamming and granting her the ability to link it up to her cybernetic targeting systems. It also takes modern ammunition, getting far more bang for her buck than the original ammo delivered. The weapon requires heavy augmentation even for standard military cyborgs.
While other cyborg soldiers may opt for stealth technology, light weight agile cybernetics, or other such nuanced packages, Nia's augmentations are all focused towards pure brute power, allowing her to not only heft up and wield her favored weapons, but also allowing her to be a vicious force in close range combat.
In situations were close quarters combat is likely, or her larger weapons would otherwise be too cumbersome to be effective, such as tight corridors, she may instead use a retractable halberd, and a smaller sidearm. The weapon is capable of extending to about the length of a typical halberd, or retracting to roughly the side of a hand-axe for either portability, or for use more cramped situations. The blade is, of course, made with modern methods and materials to give it extra cutting power versus modern armor and cyborg bodies.
Sexual Preferences: No bodily waste or mutilation, other than that, she's open to many things. When in doubt, sent me a PM and ask. She's pansexual, and doesn't factor gender or physical sex in much when considering partners. She's never really kept a steady relationship for very long, but she's had many casual sex partners over the years.
