0 · 644 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...

"Well, if it makes you feel any better, I'll just ignore the fact that you've a chronic-whatsit and invite you to training sessions, daily jogs, hill-walking and mountain climbing parties... I'm sure you'd enjoy all of tha', right, s'long as you brought your meds."

Ro Retna was idly humming a song under her breath -- it sounded like something remotely modern, but considering Ro's tone deafness, it could have been anything -- as she went about some mild paperwork.

"She said, I love you, babe, I love you so..."

Romanae lifted her head as Sara took a seat nearby.

"Alright, then?" she asked, closing the folder she was working on.

"Kiddo? Do I look that young?" she asked with a smile to match her amused tone. "Sure thing, I ain't gonna pass on a free drink. Beer'll do fine, nothing too fancy required, eh?"

"Whelp? Sounds like a right pleasant thing, so they do. Is it a bloke, 'cause I can totally understand getting pissed off at a bloke. My own lads are a group of trouble makers at the best of times," she grinned.

Ro Retna tutted with a roll of her eyes. "Oh, I can understand that. My MTAC technician and my trainee are at each other's throats daily! They don't work so well in the team, either, but the others in our little squad kinda gel it together, and they have pulled through in previous years," Ro commented as she picked up her beer.

"I haven't got that kind of control, I'm afraid. If the higher ups tell me I've to take a little rookie into a team that've been together since they were teens, I've not got the choice. They learn to work well, though. Considering they've all got their own place, they learn to take the others' word for it when they need to."

"Lucky, that," Ro commented. "My Da' used to hold a bit of weight, but there's only so much he could really do for me. He got my best four on the team, I think I can handle one rookie," she shrugged, taking another leisurely sip of her beer. "Besides, with any luck Benji'll turn out to be a pretty good soldier."

"That's understandable. Luckily my team's gotta be a pretty small one, so it's not like I have to take on new people every few months, but bugger does it fuck something up when a probationary comes into the group midway through a set of crises. MTAC is challenging enough without the team having its feathers ruffled, yeah?"

"We were due a probationary anyway... We'd been working a man down for a while -- I guess that's my fault, I just didn't want to go through all the paper work. It'd taken three weeks just to get it all done for the transfer, let alone applying for new recruits..."

Ro Retna downed the last of her beer. "You're telling me! And God forbid that anyone gets hurt on any form of investigation! The medical form was just a bit of paper you handed in to the attending physician when I started six years ago, and now there're about thirty pages!"

"I don't know what people do with all that paper. Do they... shred it whilst laughing at how long we spent on it, or do they actually do something with it other than using it for loo paper when they run out?"

"D'you know that I had to apply to three different departments to get a replacement pistol?" Romanae asked incredulously. "I got one bit of paper back with the form number and a big box. 'Justification for application.' So, I took up the whole box writing "it wouldn't be fair if the murderers, rapists and other criminals had guns and I didn't". I got a verbal warning, but Christ Almighty did it get my application dealt with quickly."

Ro Retna snorted. "I don't like it... I'm wasting my time filling out a form to go out in a bloody car or reimbursement forms when I have to pay for fuel. One of my team had to fill out a form that let him bring his trained dog into the office to sit in a basket under the desk. Utterly ridiculous. I get the point, right, what if someone's allergic to dogs? But d'they think we wouldn't check first..?"

Ro Retna snorted. "Hey, I have my mail opened by someone else. Any 'romantic' letters that I forward to my office when I'm working a case? Yup. Some namby-pamby little shit reads them. I got called 'sweetie-munchkin' for a month 'til I smacked the guy in the face and said he threw the first punch. Which he agreed with, 'cause I told him that I could break his nose more than once if needs be, right?"

"Well, to be truthful, the guy thought he was getting back at me for ending the 'relationship.' It was a one-night stand and I accidentally left one of my call-cards in the bed in my haste to get out after I got a call on my mobile. My mistake, I know, but jeezo-Louise, you've never seen a man escorted from SIB offices bare-naked apart from a bow around his waist. Disgusting."

Ro Retna grinned. "I didn't tell anybody that I'd said to him I was an agent for male strippers -- I didn't think it was necessary, totally would've seemed inappropriate as they lead away the naked bloke -- good grief." Ro snorted with suppressed laughter as Sara threw the drink. "Are you trying to get yourself into a fight, just for more paperwork?"

"Hey, you're Irish, ain't much you can do about that, I'm afraid. At least you're not accused of deep-frying everything and being bulimic, though. Apparently we Scots even eat deep-fried breakfasts and are fat. I mean like 'holy shite, it's a whale' fat."

"He seems like a right grumpy bastard, aye?" the Scotswoman asked with a gesture of her slightly chewed pen towards the Irishman. "But yeah. Stereotypes are annoying."

"I'm pretty sure that I shouldn't even be a Special Agent this early, due to my femininity," Ro said with a tell-tale smirk as she gestured to the tailored shirt and pair of dark trousers she wore, as well as the scarred face and lazy style of hair she wore. "Stereotypes are bitches."

Ro Retna grimaced. "Lucky you," she hummed. "I'm gonna be here most of the night doing this bloody paperwork," Ro harrumphed. "Great luck for the Scots gal, no?"

"Oh, come on! Space ships and all of that, I'm well down for that! I'm still living in the dark ages when it comes to space exploration! It'd be a good laugh, well worth the paper work, no? I could even make it an official visit of sorts, split the paperwork two-ways. My whole team could come with, or at least the two I trust to behave themselves."

Ro Retna waved a hand. "Well, when you put it that way - though I haven't the slightest what an Andorian is - I suppose I'd best let you get away. Here, though," Ro added, digging a wallet out of her back pocket and extracting one of the call-cards she carried. "Give me a call, right? We can swap stories on our teams and what not."
