Elizabeth McCarthy

Former Citizen and Teacher of Rapture and 'Big Sister'

0 · 1,088 views · located in Canti's Diner

a character in “The Multiverse”, as played by Rulke

Description

Name: Elizabeth McCarthy

Age: 27

Occupation: WCPD Cop

Partner: Jenna Crespo

Appearance in Armour:

Appearance out of Armour:



Personality:
Elizabeth was an aristocrat in Rapture and actively taught in one of the primary schools, she was well-liked if at times considered little harsh. Although outside of this she was addicted to plasmids. Her fate may have been different if it was not for being noticed and chosen for the Big Sister project, she was not the first nor the last, but somehow maybe due to plasmids she was injecting into herself outside school hours, she kept some of her kindness and generosity when she was changed forever into guardian of the Little Sisters. She is at times volatile but has a caring compassionate side despite her dark and terrifying appearance.


History:
Before New Years 1958, Elizabeth was a teacher until they changed her, during that time she subscribed to teachings of Sofia Lamb, finding her philosophy more realistic than the so-called pretension or idealistic bullshit, Andrew Ryan would have them believe.


Skills:
Stab: A Big Sister's basic attack. When at melee range, she will jab her ADAM syringe into the player, dealing a high amount of damage.

Charge: When at a distance from the player, a Big Sister will run towards Delta at a high speed, dealing minor damage and minor knockback, as well as temporarily disorienting the player.
Fire Barrage: Occasionally, a Big Sister will fire three large exploding fireballs in quick succession, dealing high damage.

Telekinetic Pummel: Occasionally, a Big Sister will use an advanced form of Telekinesis to lift every nearby object around them, pull them towards her and fire them at the player, with the amount of damage depending on the size of the object. If the object is large enough, it will push the player back, temporarily disorienting them.

Drain: When low on health, Big Sisters will run towards a wandering Splicer, impale them with their ADAM syringe and drain their health. This gradually recharges the Big Sister's health, but leaves her vulnerable. Attacking her while she is draining a Splicer will cause her to drop her victim, killing the latter in the process.

Teleport: Big Sisters possess a unique version of the Teleportation Plasmid used by Houdini Splicers. The energy ripple seen when they disappear is purple as opposed to red, and they can teleport much farther. They are seen using this ability in a handful of scripted situations throughout the game, and they may also use it to reach the player from a distance during battle.

So begins...

A strange sight would enter Gambit's a figure in an old style diving costume, with a heavy helmet tinted red and over this what appeared to be a WCPD uniform. It was certainly odd, the suit even appeared archaic in its design, with the brass fittings and heavy steel boots, altogether gave vague impression she was not from around here.

Peering from the helmet, the place seem hospitable to say the least, still she kept her piece nearby in case of anything. It had been great that they accepted her in, after all now she had something new to protect after all Rapture was a tourist resort now, which was rather fitting end to Andrew Ryan palace of exclusiveness. Nonetheless it had been major relief they had accepted her, considering her appearance.

Lifting her hands up to her head, she would carefully tug off the heavy diving helmet and reveal a woman with long black hair and impossibly blue eyes, altogether she would appear rather ethereal or unreal. Noting someone had taken to her appearance she would smile and walk on over to Einar, "Elizabeth McCarthy or Lizzy if you wish to shorten it. I am rather new here, but I was told by my superiors to patrol this area, is there any particular reason why?" she would smile, but something about her glow from her eyes, suggested something sinister. Sitting herself down next to the person, she would hum a little tune, and appear rather bored, "May I please ask your name Sir? It is after all only fitting."

Smiling to the reply, she would shrug, "I only ask because the people seemed to laugh at the implication I was meant to be here. I guess it was my imagination." seeing some weird device next to her, she summarised it was similar to the machines in Rapture, just a little more advanced, after some tinkering, she somehow managed to get a cup pop out filled to brim with water, at least she hoped so.

Taking the cup with shaky hands, she would smile, it seemed she liked to smile, but then again, she once taught primary school kids so perhaps it made sense in retrospect.

"I know very little about this City, you got any information on it Ei---." blushing she corrected herself, "Sorry, Einer, I am pronouncing that correctly right?"

Turning she would wave appearing friendly, "Oh, I apologize, am I taking your seat Ms Vena?" with that she would gesture to stand up and move, clearly indicating she was willing to move to another seat.

"I am rather new to the force, they seemed in rather a hurry to recruit people, I suspect New Year is going to hit this town." realizing the reference made no sense, she would say, "New Year in my place is not something you wish to experience, I promise you, Ms Vena and Einar."

"I saw Einar checking out my diving suit so I figured I would explain on why I am dressed as such, would you like to hear a story, or if not. I guess it will remain a mystery, besides you seem kind lot." she would smile, but her eyes seemed almost alien to her whole body, which was troubling, very troubling.

Nodding she would say, "I do believe time moves differently here, but I am a product of the 1950s. After the advent of WW2 and we won and defeated Japan a man named Andrew Ryan founded what he called a Utopia in 1951, for well I shall recite the quote:

"...I chose the impossible. I chose... Rapture. A city where the artist would not fear the censor. Where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality. Where the great would not be constrained by the small. And with the sweat of your brow, Rapture can become your city as well."


Those of us who were chosen for this were honored as we were taken to what could only be called an underwater Utopia, I was aged 17 just out of University with my Bachelor Degree in Education, I was teaching in a small school in Montana. My grades caught his eyes and he offered me place, I only accepted to go if my parent's could go."

Pausing she would say, "Hold on need to drink some water, rather famished." with that she would take a small sip and say, "It's a long story so I shall take breaks between each part."

Nodding, she would listen to his reply, "Well times were different and certainly if we had known what would happen, we may have realized this." sighing she went on, "So we all went to Rapture and let me tell it was breath-taking it really seemed impossible a place of wonder and science, it whole construction a work of pure craftsmanship. It was astonishing, my words cannot give it enough grandiose description."

Taking a breath she would appear lost in the memory for a bit before continuing, "Everyone in Rapture was given a chance, and due my education I was given the first position as a teacher in the first primary school. These were amazing kids, geniuses in all their areas, it was I suppose you could say a ego-fest, but we were still lost in the awe of it, each one of my family given somewhere to be. It just was astonishing."

Smiling she would continue, "Well round about in 1958 I was teaching in the primary school, my father was working with a smuggler named Atlas... Hmm maybe skipped a little, okay I suppose I best mention Frank Fontaine. Rapture was meant to be ideal capitalistic society where only the best and brightest way. Due it isolationism a man named Frank Fontaine founded a smuggling organization." pausing she would let more questions be asked now.

Smiling awkwardly, "I was trying to condense this whole story... but I suppose best explain about Plasmids see were genetic enhancements you could use on your body, at first they were used for simple things, but soon they were more about making self better in all senses. Fontaine due to this demand created an underground market. Plasmids were created from the essence of a sea-slug called ADAM. Now note this stuff had adverse effects on the body so next part I tell you, I am rather ashamed of." with that she would turn her head away before answering Vena, "Perhaps, you may understand when I finish the story."

Sighing she would stare down and say, "I was a good teacher... but sadly I once got to try a plasmid in 1957, and was immediately hooked on them, they made me feel stronger and better. I never neglected my students but I craved them. But before all this Frank Fontaine faked his death and out of the woodwork came a new leader for the working class in Rapture, Atlas." lifting her head, "This is where it becomes complicated see the problem here is that certain things happened after 1958 New Year Celebration."

"Atlas led a revolt against Andrew Ryan. Ryan had been looking down on working class for too long, and many were furious, he called them parasites and openly mocked them with clear elitism. The revolution led to collapse of the first age of Rapture. Ryan went against his Capitalistic beliefs and openly forbid Atlas group, pretty much declaring war on them. I still taught and tried my best too, but the whole thing was a mess a clear utter mess, once Andrew Ryan was finally offed by some strange hero and Fontaine whom was believed dead turned out not to be, we found his spliced up corpse later. That was end of the first age of Rapture, I have not even gone into Little Sisters or Big Daddy's but I am trying to make this short."

Shaking her head, she said, "Not quite, see first I was volunteered for project, I still used plasmids and since Ryan was dead with Fontaine hopefully gone a new group took over, the leader was Father Wales and former psychiatrist Sofia Lamb. She was our savior she would restore Rapture's splendor, I was left alone without my family since due to first riot I lost them all. Thus I became a Big Sister, something went wrong the experiment was meant to make me lose my emotions and make me dedicated to protecting Little Sisters, maybe because I was using plasmids or something I don't understand I kept my humanity. Because of this I became a symbol of New Rapture what we were meant to be. I am genetically changed to be perfect protector I have a scream that can shatter most ear-drums, I have ability to shoot fireballs and I am agile and acrobatic. I can remove my armor but this is my fate. Once new age collapsed and our savior turned out to be a lie, I left and somehow ended up in this city."

"I need to protect something, it now part of me, I can't not. Since I can't protect my original charges I intend to protect this city, and I am relieved they accepted, because most would not have accepted me."

Nodding she would go on, "I reckon you should say, you seem competent enough and well I think we have a chance to prevent loss of life here. I did catch someone earlier referring to a group, I doubt I could not officially affiliate myself due to my position but I think you two should consider this."

"Never underestimate yourself, remember I was surrounded by geniuses but who's here the school teacher, in the end you never know what will happen. I think..." trying to remember she rubbed her forehead, before saying, "It was um Cain I believe, I reckon he will be grateful for help. Anyway glad you could listen, that actually felt relaxing to get that off my back."

Nodding she herself stood up, placing her helmet back on and in a flash she was out the door, did she teleport or just move fast. Who knew, with that she would be gone.

A figure clad in an archaic style diving suit with heavy steel boots and bronze casing connecting each joint would enter. Draped over her shoulders were a Wing City Police Department hoody, over her head was a diving helmet with the glass tinted to a dark crimson. Staring around she would she shrug and enter, she had time to rest and this seemed better place to catch her breath, than that Gambit's Place.

"I don't suppose you have any Earl Grey been a while since I had any, and used to love it when my Pappy got it imported from England to Montana. If not tea will do, two lumps and milk please." as she would wait,

She would glance around admiring the quaintness to this place, it had a beauty, really seemed welcoming but not too advanced, but the decor was the most splendid thing about it, ornate wooden grating with designs within them, and beautiful florid curtains.

"What sorta of pastries you have?" she would break the time by removing her helmet slowly, revealing a woman with long black hair and piercing blue eyes that were unnatural in colour and seemed almost to glow or shine. Placing the helmet on top of the table, she would smile, "Sorry, having hats on inside is rude."

Considering carefully she would find this all very welcoming, "I would like to try Mooncakes as for the faux pas, of course I should have realized... Just Rapture never got such exquisite teas and it was something I missed so you offering them is amazing, I look forward to having them."

Smiling she would then ask, "Do you serve any meals, or is it only pastries and tea, if so, I don't mind. If you are little intimidated by my get-up I will be honest I only became a member of the police recently."

"Yes, I never had noodles sadly Montana was not very open-minded to your ethnicity it's rather tragic, I will have that and the tea and cake with that. How much does it cost, I don't have much but fortunately I managed to sell some stuff from Rapture so I have some money, it's just a lot and well I am not sure monetary value of this place, so um please don't take advantage of that."

Listening she had experience with sensing unease in fact her primary school days she had exposed a family who were abusing their kid for not doing good enough in their opinion. As she watched she could sense the unease and it angered her, unclipping her badge, she placed it on top of the table saying in cheerful tone, "Thanks, I look forward to that, I hope we can talk since you probably have more experience of this place and well I am still acclimatizing."

Everything she said there had ulterior suggestion, and she hoped it would be clear enough, one she wanted to keep an eye on this person and two she did not like the look of this guy that had entered.

Despite all this Elizabeth could sense the unease and deciding it was time to make self known, she would stand up and say, "Wing City Police Department, Elizabeth McCarthy I ask you now to leave, you are causing her distress and I can see she does not wish to talk to you." she would place her helmet back on, muffling her voice before she said, "I will ask only once. Don't underestimate me."

Walking on over, Elizabeth shook her head, "Mam, I am a primary school teacher, well was, I can tell when people are lying. Please come down to the Department with me, so we can handle this, I will not stand by and see you suffer like this." she was smiling behind her helmet, but sadly it could not be seen, "Please mam."

Speaking clearly, she would say, "It is my duty to protect and serve, if you are coercing someone with threats or causing them distress this becomes a legal matter. Since she is obviously distress and you are making threats you have made this a matter for police." with that she would take Naoki hand and say, "Just calm down and I promise things will be okay."
