0 · 647 views · located in The Infinite Void

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

Description

Image

Name: Romanae Retna

Nicknames: Ro, Rory

Race: Human

Birthday: 23 August

Age: 34

Gender: Female

Height: Five feet six inches

Weight: 124 lbs

Eye Colour: Dark gray

Hair Colour: Dark titian (ginger)

Distinguishing Marks: The majority of Romanae's body is scarred. She has light white marks running diagonally down her left cheek, and she has a scar trailing from the left corner of her mouth to the middle of her cheek. Her torso, arms and thighs are especially scarred.

Other Features: Romanae's accent is a deeper Scottish lilt and is considered rougher than the average female voice.

History: Previously a Captain in the British Army, Ro now works for Wing City Police Department's SIB as a Special Agent. The SIB (Special Investigations Branch) deals with crime involving/against those in the Armed Forces and Military Police Arms. With a team of four men and herself as leading officer making five, the small but functional team worked well together until a new face was introduced.

Five months previously, another officer had left the team in order to be transferred across seas as a liaison officer. Now that there is a new probationary officer involved, it isn't quite so certain that Ro's team will gel as well as the last one did.

So begins...

"Remind your client that he's coming very close to verbally assaulting an officer of the law, and that is an arrestable offence," Romanae informed Matthew - she'd seen witnesses, victims and suspects alike get worked up in the past. Sometimes they needed to be yelled at. Others needed to be left alone. In this case, she chose to simply ignore him and address her concerns to his lawyer. "No one was ever accusing him of mistreating the child; as far as our trained medical personnel are concerned, he's right as rain. There's no doubt that he'd have been worse off. But there's a difference, Mister Doyle, being responsible enough to remove a child from a harmful person and keeping that child without informing any law or social service. Luckily for you, however, the District Attorney listened to me when I told him that I believed you had acted in the child's best interests, even if you did so with poor judgement."

Ro Retna nodded, glancing at the one-way mirror before she gestured to the door. "You can both leave interrogation as soon as Special Agent Isaacs returns with news from the DA. We'll have to ask that you both stick around a little longer - paper work, of course, and then the line-up with our suspects. Don't be surprised if you're permanently removed from any future adoption applications, Mister Doyle. We can be as sympathetic to your cause as is humanly possible, but you just can't buy a child off the street."

James soon re-entered the room, a phone still to his ear. "You okay with the adoption thing and then a check in six months, Ro?"

"Aye, I'm fine with that. Sir?" One blonde eyebrow was raised in Matthew's direction. "Are you amiable to that - we don't go further in regards to the purchase charges, but he will be removed from future adoption applications as to the DA's discretion and will be checked upon in six months by our own office to see whether or not said ban is still necessary."

Romanae nodded, breathing out something like relief that this whole charade of a case was finally coming to a close. "You can come sort it out at my desk," she stated, moving to hold the door open whilst James removed himself to the surveillance room to continue his conversation with the DA. "Mostly just signatures; I'll need a written statement from Mister Doyle before he can move in to identify the suspect, and then I'll have to get a final statement from the mother, uncle and, unfortunately, the father. If you'll follow me, I'll just lead you to the bull-pen. Should be quiet at this time of day," she smiled ruefully. "Assuming the baby's still here, of course, it has to be. You did a decent thing, Mister Doyle, even if your methods weren't quite as far away from madness as one would prefer."

"Look," Romanae said, pointing out a pair of chairs at one of the desks in the bull-pen they had just entered, "I know this sucks right now and it seems like we're hanging the wrong guy for a crime he prevented, but it isn't that bad. The DA will tell the adoption services to reject any application you make in the next six months. After that, he'll tell them to consider your application under the same rules as every other person applying. If you get rejected for what seems like a bullshit reason after that, get in contact with someone at this office and we'll pass it on to the Assistant DA and we'll see whether or not he can do something for you, okay?"

There. That seemed fair.

"If you'll both take a seat, the paper work is on my desk, as are a few pens and the like. Is there anything you need right now?"

"Euphemism?" Ro repeated, amused. "Yeah, sorry. Didn't go to university; didn't have time. Too busy with training. God, the people in here... No wonder Crepa likes it so much - they're all as fucking looptastic as she is."

The redhead couldn't help the amused laugh that was drawn from her throat. "You've shagged some posh quines and that makes you open-minded. Gosh, they make you just right in Ireland, don't they?" the Scot said, smiling. "As for school... I don't really care about who finished what and when. Some of the thickest people I encountered have graduated from university. I, personally, left as soon as I was able. Went off to armed services. Easier than doing A Levels and shit, at any rate. I couldn't hack school."

"Millions? Really? What exactly do you do, porn or something?" She could only assume, of course, as his conversation had strayed mostly towards sex and violence. "I'm quite comfortable with my SIB salary, but it's nowhere near millions, which would be pretty damn nice. Wait, Ireland? Better and angrier? Fuck me, that must take some doing... We're not exactly a hospitable country, and we're an oil capital."

"I don't suppose you've been offered money to kill off the Biebers yet, have you?" the Special Agent enquired with a grin. "That kid really annoys me. I don't even know why. Maybe he just looks too girly to be singing songs about being a good boyfriend. That and he really fucking creeps me out. Canadians always do. I don't know what it is."

Ro shook her head, shuddering. "Still, lucky you with the millions and the celebs. I'm in a division of the Royal Military Police - like, I investigate crimes committed by or against police and soldiers, y'know? Not fun, most of the time, 'specially when the stuck up soldiers see me coming along. They think I'm a right little lady, and then the God-awful pick-up lines come out to play. Eurgh..."

"I've heard that and worse," Ro lamented, rolling her eyes. "Do you believe in love at first sight, or do I need to walk past you again? Do you have a boyfriend? No? Well, when you want a manfriend, gimme a call. I lost my phone number, can I have yours? One guy even dumped a glass of water on me and then offered to help me out of my wet clothes," she stated, tone dry and unimpressed. "Of all the things to do in the middle of an investigation. He deserved the black eye he got, really."

Ro Retna smirked, rolling her eyes. "Funnily enough, none of my 'manfriends' have ever asked me to do that. I'm not sure if they were just boring in bed or genuinely afraid that I'd do it. What d'you reckon? Worried that I'd leave 'em in their undies, handcuffed to a toilet or something?"

Now she thought on it, that did seem like something that would seriously be considered.

"Or maybe in the gym at work. I do like the gym."

"I don't know what the fuck Facebook is good for," Romanae admitted. "Thirty-four is apparently the age where nothing teenagers do or use make sense. Like snorting vodka. What the fuck is the point in that? And wearing their jeans around their skinny thighs instead of at their waist, with a belt. What is up with that? They're literally asking for someone to come up behind them and reveal their skid-marked boxers to the world, right?"

"I'm sure you wouldn't sound that different," the agent joked, shrugging her shoulders. "Anyhow, I should go. Crepa'll be freaking out about going to the park and it's way too late for her to go there now... I hope you manage to find something worth shagging in this bar. God only knows it's a very rare thing to get in here. Y'know, something with no STDs? Very rare. Have fun!"

That said, Romanae winked a goodbye and turned on her heel to exit the bar.

Once again, Special Agent Retna strode into the bar with the sole intention of getting a cup of tea to go. She had a lot of paperwork sitting in the office, not to mention that she had a case on-going and the chances of that case getting solved with just James there to motivate the team with his gentle voice were so slim that Ro wasn't sure it was even a possibility.

"If you can get me a cup of tea, love, that'd be fan-dabby-dosy," the somewhat irritated agent ordered from the bartender as she approached the counter. "ASAP."

"What..?"

"As soon as possible. In other words, stop staring at me like you've just seen me pull a giraffe out of my arse and get me a cup of tea, please."

"Oh for the love of -- hello! Hasn't someone killed you yet? I could've sworn that someone would have wanted to kill you by now. Was it really necessary to throw the bottle? Really?"

If Romanae seemed exasperated, it was at least fond exasperation. "And babe? Awkward, hunny, awkward. So, since you're not dead yet... how are you?" The SIB agent quirked a smile and an eyebrow at once as she claimed a barstool beside Doryn.

"I suppose my prayers have gone unanswered," the agent quipped, rolling her eyes at the male's pun. "Oh, how I've missed your dick-centric ego. Trust me, love, you're probably just average down there."

Romanae grinned, turning away from Doryn to pay the bartender for the tea that was now sitting in front of her. She took her sweet time taking a sip before she formulated a response. "Where've I been? I've been working." Romanae took a hand from her warm cup to instead grasp the badge that had been clipped to her trousers and hold it up for Doryn to see. "SIB Special Agent Romanae Retna at your service. Except not your service, because you're a bit of a douche. I've been marvellous, thank you for asking!" she chirped, all sarcasm and saccharine sweetness.

Ro Retna snorts, rolling her eyes. "Fucking magic. Literally." She relinquished her badge with no protest - after all, the literal worst he could do with it would be to attempt eating it, then choking on it. "Pardon me? What do you think I am, a speciality police hooker? Special Investigations Branch, dipshit! 'Soulscar in Bed' my skinny white arse. You and your creepy eyes wish."

"Investigates special things. You need to learn to read, I think. Royal Military Police, SIB... I investigate crimes committed by or against soldiers and police personnel. God, I feel like I'm explaining spaghetti to Cre again... And I'm not sad in bed. I'm just alone in bed."
