Description

ImageImageImage

In the flesh and as herself Vivian is stunning. Although she may not be the average beauty she is tall, has a chest and knows how to flaunt her long legs. She stands at 5'10 and weighs about 130 pounds. She has a muscular build, like that of an athlete. After years of training and constant health check ups she is spick and span. Depending on where she is and what she is doing, her attire and overall look change. Due to the necessity to blend in with locals she is always changing character. As herself however, she is tomboy. Her hair is let loose and left long in it's natural color - blond. When it comes to clothes well fit jeans and a t-shirt are her best friend. If Vivian is playing as any other character things change. Make-up may be applied to make her face appear harsher, her hair may even be cut should she be staying anywhere for a longer period of time. Appearance wise, things will always be described given the scenario and the moment.

Around Nickolas she tends to dress casually while concealing her weapons. He knows her by her first name and as such she acts like herself around him, and not as the chameleon. At 27 years old she's had her fair share of men on her arms, but none have stuck and some were seduced to be killed along the way. Now that she's approaching thirty she knows she won't be in the business of contract killing forever.

Personality

Hard as a rock is the best way to describe her. Today she just doesn't allow herself to feel emotional about a certain subject. This was drilled into her head during military training. In reality Vivian is trained to be this way because excess emotion causes faults. She is incredibly meticulous about certain things. She's okay with being dirty, as in mud and crap, but not disorganized. She needs organization to function. When she's ordered to commit a contract the wire funds are flawless, the target investigated, presented and she commits to the plan. If she's handed someone's sloppy preparation she won't accept it. She knows well that mistakes lead to the police being hot on her tail. The people she works for can be the worst organized citizens in the world and she won't care because some people can function in clutter however she can't.

She is touchy about certain subjects but for her employers, anger is fuel. When she does get pent up energy and emotion then she'll usually set up a punching bag. Vivian will never take out her anger on a client or during a kill. Her emotions and feelings are never to get in the way of a contract kill. Call her a 'bottle it up' kind of girl.

Vivian is headstrong and opinionated. She never hesitates to state what is on her mind. She works independently and is very subtle about her work. She doesn't boast about her job, she keeps everything under wraps. Her assassin occupation is not flaunted to people on the street. Any exchanges are subtle, should they ever occur in broad daylight. Her kills are, most times, long shot snipes in public or head on kills in enclosed locations. Claiming her hits is only done when she's looking for a new contractor or to attract attention.

As an assassin would be she is a chameleon. She can blend into her surroundings and become a new character in the blink of an eye. Her face has had little to no plastic surgery alterations to make changing so quick and painless. By simply tying her hair back and wearing a darker blush her face and cheekbones become harsher and she suddenly looks old. By wearing her hair down she can pass off for a person as young as eighteen. She is incredibly at putting on the face of another persona and speaking in another dialect. She knows a wide variety of European languages and some oriental. Vivian mastered the accents of the languages long ago so speaking them and seeming like a native to the country is no issue. Although she may play a variety she never loses herself and who she is. She is proud to be herself.

Equipment

Weapons and such will always be listed in character. More often than not Vivian will have a small Glock or Revolver on hand. In terms of where she gets all of her artillery from, she has several contacts that could be considered black market dealers. For the most part she pays in cash, there has only ever been one credit card to her name and that she uses when she takes a year or two to herself (which isn't uncommon). It is under an alias, the name however is unknown.

Passports and paper forgery is all done by a professional contact as well. Any of the passports that were issued by the directorate were destroyed and deemed useless as any alias they gave her was blown out of the water.

When she's in the US and on home turf she has three primary weapons, the first being a Glock 22 .40 Cal with a modified magazine, silencer and scope. See here. The second is a Cheytac M200 long distance sniper rifle along. The third is a Beretta 92G Elite IA.

History

On Valentine's Day 1982 Vivian graced her parents with her life. She was born to a happy and middle class family in New York, New York. Her parents were simple people, her father an accountant and her mother a first grade teacher at the local school. She was the middle child in the midst of her family, with an older brother and younger sister to who looked after her. They grew up in decent circumstances. When the children came of working age they immediately did so to ensure the family wouldn't have too tight a month. Clothes were shared between kids as best could be. As they grew up their father's seniority in the firm did too. Comfort in equity and wealth came with time. When Vivian was eighteen and headed to university her family was finally 'comfortable' and capable of footing her tuition.

Until her father was fired.

It was in the late nineties when his firm went under, part of an acting recession. He fell victim to the cutbacks and faced his family and children. He had people he had to support, a daughter going to NYU. He didn't know what to do. So they moved, headed downtown. When her father was hired he was immediately paid off by the Italian mafia to handle part of their affairs. By accepted bribes he could ensure his family could live a life they wanted in the urban center. Despising the fact that she couldn't juggle a job and school, Vivian dropped out. It wasn't even that she had poor grades. Academia and politics in the books weren't enough for her.

She enlisted.

As a nineteen year old heading into the military she faced a chastising family. She went anyways and enlisted in the sniping academy and Navy Seals. As a woman such a decision was a hard choice but she was up for it. It suited her, and her personality. She was driven and logical. She worked in a methodological fashion. She didn't want her life to be about her anymore. She needed something to commit herself to and it became the military. The issues came when she was dispatched and forced into a combat situation she came to not believe in.

In the midst of a middle eastern American prison she was forced to listen to her fellow soldiers do commit acts against defenseless prisoners. She witnessed her country commit acts of terror far more gruesome that those committed against it. After two years on duty she snapped. It had been a particularly stressful week. A landmine had caught part of her patrol, sent three men into wooden boxes back home. She was nursing burn wounds and a twisted ankle. She was stressed beyond her normal capacity. Back in the green zone she was faced with inappropriate behavior on behalf of her colleague. They had gotten hold of a local man who had been paid to plant bombs in his crops. They were torturing him to find out who had paid him off. The viciousness of her fellow soldiers cracked her. She went at them, snapped their necks, and shot the victim in the head to end his pain.

She was immediately brought in, debriefed and returned to American soil. A small aspect of the government recognized her ruthlessness. When she returned home her family had all but been obliterated. Her mother was dead, her father too. A rival mafia family had taken him out to trouble the family's finances. It was a hard hit. Her siblings were all but estranged from her. Her older brother had moved to Australia while her younger sister was working with doctor's without borders in Africa. She was alone. Special ops took hold of her, cleared her record and trained her.

By twenty-six she was a ruthless machine, fine tuned to work in the name of the American Government. As she was dispatched as part of a kill squad during extenuating circumstances she came to be known. Yet all of it sickened her.

She left.

Most times they don't let you leave. For Vivian it was difficult, it required pulling a lot of strings. In the end she faked her own death. She couldn't work in favor of a government she didn't believe in, who fought wars using the same tactics they condemned. She didn't care anymore. But she remained ruthless. When she returned to New York, assuming a different last name, she returned her hair to it's blond state, had some minor plastic surgery done, and committed herself to the only family she had left -- Nickolas De Luca. His family had once upon a time been her father's employers. In his name she uptook her position as a De Luca Torpedo.
