Ro Retna

Special Agent Retna, SIB.

0 · 624 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...

 "'Miss Romanae'? What are you, my gym teacher?" Ro asked, nose wrinkled in disbelief. "You can't say hello to me 'anymore'? That would imply you've said... hello to me before? I'm sorry, you're mistaking me for, as odd as it sounds, another Romanae. I don't know who you are. Sorry."

Her grip on her sword lessened, but did not completely fade away. Obviously this was a case of mistaken identity...

Ro Retna shook her head, turning to walk away from Izumi. The poor thing must've been rather confused - father? Messing with him? Why would she mess with him, anyway? "Maybe you should go ask 'father' about it... You're clearly delusional," she added over her shoulder.

Ro Retna turned to look at Izumi once again, drawing herself up to her (meagre) height and making a face that suggested she was growing sick of whatever joke he was pulling. "Stay away from me. I don't know who Kroger is, I don't know who you are, and I would rather that you did not follow me around any longer."

Ro Retna kept her 'professional' face on until Izumi turned his back, at which point she stuck her tongue out at the unknown boy and made a face at him. "Weirdos. Each and every one of them. And that one knew my name, too! Creep! Wait 'til I write to Da about that... Hm..." Ro had turned to head to an empty table, but on reflection, it seemed like it would be far more interesting to perhaps find out a bit more information.

"Wait a second - can I ask you a question?" Romanae spoke up, eyebrows raised at Izumi in question.

 "What's my name?" Ro asked, clearly without thinking, because she soon held up a hand. "I mean, what do you think my name is? This isn't making any sense... at all. I'm not playing games with you; I honestly have no idea who the hell you are. I'm sure you've confused me for someone else."

Ro Retna looked as though she may be sick. "Retna? Are you sure?" Her shoulders slumped, making her look rather downhearted. "But I'm not married..." Ro stated the obvious. "I think I'm gonna be sick."

Ro Retna ran a hand through her hair absently, fingers clinging to the scalp at the back of her head as she frowned. "Uh... Right. I'm sure it's a mistake. You don't my Da, right? His name's Joseph? And - my friends, my friends, Iante and Tommy, James... Right? Those names don't ring a bell, do they? Good, that's good."

"I hate this place."

Ro Retna blinked. And then she blinked again. "But..." Ro fell silent. This was making very, very little sense. "Married? I'm not married. I'm definitely not married... We didn't want to get married 'til we were older."

 [url=http://www.roleplaygateway.com/roleplay/the-multiverse/characters/sil-mccall/]Sil McCall[/url] was once again in one of her enthusiastic moods when she traipsed into the bar, a tin of paint hooked over an arm that was spattered with a completely different colour. "If paint weren't so heavy, more people would do it for fun. I should hire children. They'd actually like to paint... Couldn't trust them not to ruin my coving though. And I do like making my coving."

 "Mavo died," Ro pointed out listlessly. "He died. And I wanted to marry him - Dad wanted me to marry him, too. Mavo's dead. His name wasn't Kroger, either," Ro said weakly, stating the obvious once again. "I'm confused. Are you sure... it's me? Maybe it's not... someone who looks abnormally like me? With the scars and the name and the... life."

 [url=http://www.roleplaygateway.com/roleplay/the-multiverse/characters/sil-mccall/]Sil McCall[/url] spent a few moments muttering to herself about coving before actually noticing where she was. "Oh! Just where I need to be, fancy that... Now... Which of these people looks like they might fruitlessly spend money - hello, pretty boy!"

Indeed, Casil had noticed Benjamin Scanlon's current position and was now meandering towards him with a wide smile and swing of her tin of paint. "Excuse me! Hello, there, I'm Sil McCall! I was just wondering, if you were to buy a pointless house just for the sake of buying it, would you rather it had coloured walls - pastels and earthy tones, for example - or white-washed and plain plasterboard?"

 [url=http://www.roleplaygateway.com/roleplay/the-multiverse/characters/sil-mccall/]Sil McCall[/url] smiled, nodding her head. "I thought that would be a good idea! Oh - oh, pardon me! I'm an 'interior designer and property renovator'. Which is an awfully fancy title for someone who goes around buying houses, doing them up and then selling them for twice what you spent on it, isn't it? Awfully daft, in fact. They should just call me a fixer-upper!"

 [url=http://www.roleplaygateway.com/roleplay/the-multiverse/characters/sil-mccall/]Sil McCall[/url]: "How long have I been doing it? Since I was old enough to hold a paintbrush and use an electric drill, I imagine! My Uncle was a property designer, you see? He made brand new houses though... I haven't quite worked up the money or the want to do that yet. Why make a brand new house when you can breathe new life into an old one instead?"

Ro Retna , now thoroughly left to her own devices, frowned, placed a hand over her heart for a few seconds and then fled the bar, hurriedly retying her scabbard to the belt of her uniform as she dashed out of the door.

She really had to find out about this.

They hadn't known each other very long, but Ro could already that she liked her new-found acquaintance.

"So, are you in the family way, then? Y'know, brothers, sisters, kids and the like?" the twenty-five year old asked as she adjusted the shirt she wore. "I've got my Da and that's pretty much it," the Scot added with a shrug of her shoulders as she entered the bar, smiling a smile twisted by thin white lines across pale flesh.

"Aww, come on, I like you, so you're not that bad. Ask any of my boys and they'll tell you that I don't suffer idiots," she grinned, gesturing towards the bar. "D'you wanna sit there or at a table, hm? D'you even want a drink, or are you more of a sit-back-and-watch type?"

Ro Retna shrugged her shoulders as she absently cracked her knuckles before stretching her long fingers. "Depends who you ask," came the reply with a hint of laughter behind the voice. "If you ask a good tender, they'll serve anything from tea to hard liquor. If you as a bad tender, it's 'water, juice or beer,' at least in my experience," the Corporal added as she settled herself on a stool beside Den.

"Er... Well. Depends what tender?" she offered. "There are some good bartenders here, honestly. But... like most good things, they are entirely outweighed by the good."

Ro Retna snorted. "Dead fish, huh? I'll make sure not to invent soap made out of dead fish, aye? And sure, what is it? Shouldn't drink stuff from a stranger's flash, ha ha," she laughed. "You're a bit of a laugh, mate..." Romanae did note the wave, but the person doing the waving was unfamiliar. "D'you know who tha' bloke is?"

"I can always get behind a good bit of vodka, but I really shouldn't," Ro admitted. "I'm workin' tomorrow morning with Tommy in the MTAC and considering how much of a trial he can be if I'm on a thirty-six hour shift wi' the bugger."

"It ain't the hangover I'm worried about. It's the thirty-six hours spent with Mister Foot-in-mouth Tactical Warfare Expert himself... He's a bit of a whinger. In fact, he's a lot more than a bit of a whinger. He's a pain in my arse."

Ro Retna rolled her eyes. "You have a drink just now and then I'll think about it, eh? Just make sure no' to drink it all and then we'll see, Den," the soldier smiled.

Ro Retna snickered and gave in, plucking the flash from Den's grasp. "Just a bit can't hurt..." She weighed the container in her hand. "Just as well, 'cause there ain't much left in here! Did you just down half of it there? You're a riot," Ro winked, taking a good mouthful of the alcohol before licking her lips and offering Den the flash. "Nice."

Ro Retna laughed, thoroughly amused. "So it was okay to try and get me hooked on a bit of voddy, but you're not quite willing to get plastered, huh? Double-standards, mate, double-standards. Not good at all. But, since you're here, I might as well make the use of your lovely vodka," she added, tipping her head back along with the flask. "So," the redhead added following a slight clearing of her throat, "what's the story from you, then? What's with the lack of wife and small things?"

"Ain't nothing wrong with asthma. S'like calling me ugly 'cause of my scars - completely not my fault and I'll fuckin' deck you one if you do," she joked. "And you poor bugger, havin' girls that want to take good care of you. What a shame!"
