I have no idea why the formatting got all weird . . . don't ask me D:Name:
Angelika "Blue Angel" NeustadtAge:
. . . A wee bit too light for her own good.Description:
Angelika is by far the shortest, if not youngest,
new pilot on the Solaris VII arena scene. Standing at around
five-foot-nothing, she looks like a good stiff breeze will
knock her over. She still insists that her size is an
advantage, and has demonstrated this by showing off her
ability to crawl INSIDE the knee of a BattleMech and repair
Angelika keeps her raven-black hair long, with a few
highlights of blue to fit her 'image' she's cultivating as a
MechWarrior. At the moment she wears all shades of blue while
piloting a 'Mech, even her coolant vest is blue! She'd prefer
to have one of those amazingly useful Star League-era cooling
suits and neuro-helmets in all blue, but that dream is
probably a long way off.
When not piloting, she's rather . . laid back, and pacifistic.
She wears comfortable baggy jeans or shorts, and small shirts,
tank tops, and whatnot to maximize comfort. She OBVIOUSLY has
the full array of greasemonkey jumpsuits as well, if only to
fit the image.Personality:
Angelika is essentially a pacifist at heart, at
least when not in the seat of a 'Mech. More than a bit meek
and submissive (possibly due to complexes about her size
and/or self-esteem issues?) she's more than satisfied to let
other people take the reins and do what they want. Always a
follower, never a leader, seems to sum up Angelika nicely . .
most of the time.
When it comes to the actual upkeep of 'Mechs however, she gets
obscenely jealous. She knows full well just how skilled she is
at technical skills, and uses that knowledge to her advantage.
As far as she's concerned whatever 'Mech she's working on is
her baby, and she is the final word on how repairs go!
While piloting a 'Mech she tries to put her meekness aside and
fight seriously, though it proves to be . . difficult at
times. While she has a natural aptitude for piloting, she's
not very good at straight-up combat. To date, she's only won a
handful of 'Mech Battles. She believes the only reason she is
actually in the show is due to her purely lucky win against a
person that was ranked quite a bit higher than her.Backround:
Mommy was a technician, Daddy was technician . . so
of course Angelika is going to be a technician! Well . .
part-time. Ever since she was young Angelika found herself
enthralled by the epic battles in her planet's arenas, so of
course, she'd join up once she got old enough to be allowed
to! Shame she really wasn't THAT good at it.
The fact that her family worked in one of the local 'Mech Labs
on Solaris VII, and that she grew up learning all the tricks
of the trade from Techs and 'Mech Jockeys alike has given her
a foot into the door at least. Skipping more traditional
schooling she focused on learning everything she could about
anything that interested her, mainly via library studies and
hanging around with adults. They tolerated her because . .
well . . she was adorable! It also helped that she could keep
a secret, and was more than willing to be an alibi if the
authorities decided to be troublesome."No no, that's impossible! Uncle was with me yesterday helping
tutor me in economics!"
When Angelika finally became a liscenced combatant in the
Arenas, she stuck to the Lightweight classes. Her 'Mech of
choice was a modified Stinger with a simple SRM 2 and a Medium
Laser, tweaked to get more speed and jumping power at the
sacrifice of a bit of it's already meager armor. Honestly, she
didn't do that well against the more experienced pilots that
were used to fighting jump MechWarriors like Angelika. Still
she managed to win at least 1 out of every 3 fights, sometimes
a little better, and even managed a phenominal come from
behind win against a higher-skilled rising star when his
heat-sinks failed and disabled his 'Mech! Now, she's been
chosen to join this silly show and get her hands on a Medium
'Mech, as well as a shot at the big time. If she's lucky . . .
