Alyss Shepard

An elegant and tempered woman, assassin and all around mercenary. Trained in firearms as well as implanted with devices allowing her to discharge bolts of electricity, she is a deadly fighter - but is perfectly well mannered for her unsavoury profession.

Description

Alyss Shepard
"Dark Lightning"


ImageName: Alyss Shepard
Age: 27
Date of Birth: 13th February
Place of Birth: Sector Twelve, Alpha Tau System, Starship Nynaeve
Gender: Female
Race: Human
Profession: Mercenary
Ancestry: Military

Abilities


Implants: Alyss has been implanted with physical enhancements, granting her increased bone strength - she could be hit by a car and emerge without a single broken limb - as well as implants in her extremities that allow her to discharge electrical charges and bolts within a moderate radius. Her final implant is in her skull, giving her a personal HUV display that she can access with thoughts, displaying information and helping with weapon targeting.

Equipment:


Carnifex Hand Cannon: A high powered and extremely accurate pistol, firing armour and shield piercing rounds, capable of punching through military grade armour, barely even noticing metals such as steel.

Viper Rifle: An automatic sniper rifle, with a twelve round clip, firing incendiary rounds.

Dual Shredder Machine Pistols: Automatic, 32 round clip machine pistols, firing armour piercing rounds.

OmniTool: Versatile technological gadget, worn on the back of the hand to form a holographic glove. Can serve as a phone, a computer, link into HUVs, and serve as a small scale gravity manipulator to lift objects up to the size of a cabinet or sofa (for example). Other functions are provided, but nothing I can be bothered to list (or is significant enough to need it).

Personality: Calm and controlled, Alyss rarely lets her temper get the better of her; though this is not to say she is a nice person, she is simply considerate and focused in her unpleasantness, nor does it mean she does not get angry, she simply does not explode in a rage. Anger might cause her to kill, but this would not be due to loss of temper, simply an utter disregard for life. The Sanctity of Life does not have a place in the mercenary assassin business, and it is an alien concept to her.

History: The daughter of a soldier and a criminal, Alyss' father - a captain in the Terran Fleet - was naturally unable to remain with her mother, an information broker, due to the connotations such a relationship would have for his career, and so Alyss did not meet her father throughout her childhood, raised only by her mother and her mother's ring of contacts. She was treated well by all of them, an indulgence of the normally hard and calculated criminals' soft sides. When she came of age, Alyss decided that she should take it upon herself to better serve her mother, and so arranged training with an assassin in her mother's employ, learning combat and subtlety. She soon became a valuable asset of the broker, eliminating those who stood in her path as easily as her teacher, and for no further pay than praise. Eventually, however, the desire to branch forth naturally occurred, and the young woman signed on to a mercenary organisation, serving several years in the ranks of the Dark Moon Mercenaries, before eventually earning enough of a reputation that she could effectively operate as a freelancer, charging exorbitant amounts for the toughest of missions, and this is where we find her today.

So begins...

Alyss Shepard pushed open the door of the bar, a gloved hand rubbing against the wood slowly as the dangerous woman walked inside. Her pale blue eyes scanned the room idly, noting the catfighting pair of wome- no, they were men; as well as numerous other disturbances and clique-like groups of conversation. She sat herself at the front of the bar, and leant back, smiling.

She was going to like it here.

Alyss Shepard chuckled "If you hated him you'd be trying harder than that - or are you actually trying? It's rather pathetic if this is you trying." she commented, before shaking her head "But on a more serious note - surely there are more refined ways to settle this? Beating each other to death is so barbaric."

Alyss Shepard then proceeded to add "I much prefer a quick and calculated shot to the head, or heart." - disillusioning any onlookers to any perceived good intent.

Alyss Shepard sighed "This is getting old now." she murmured "Try talking about your problems, it's entertaining drama, less repetitive than 'I hate you, fuck you, how could you, fuck'."

Alyss Shepard leant on her arm, watching Iante and Migel idly. She was bored. Bored, bored bored.

Alyss Shepard walked over to the trio, having little better to do, and leant on the wall. In response to Friday's comment, she laughed and said "Attempting to kill his ex, I believe. It seemed rather obvious to me, but I suppose we cannot all be perceptive."

Alyss Shepard decided that Iante was taking her rude intrusion far better than Friday, and decided to totally ignore the woman "I see... so, what?" she asked, a rather all encompassing query.

Alyss Shepard crouched down next to Iante, tilting her head towards Migel "So. Why's he pissed off? I think I must've missed the last episode, cause I'm lost."

Alyss Shepard patted the kid on the shoulder "I'm sure that's only partially true."

Alyss wasn't very good at this sort of thing.

Alyss Shepard glanced at the oddly silent Iante, then to the oddly calm Migel.

"This isn't going to end well, I can tell."

Alyss Shepard glanced from Iante to Migel, disappointed things had quieted down so much. She was tempted to poke one of them, to see if they would explode. Tempted.
