Personality: Commander Sinclair is a very happy, amicable person so long as she gets her way. She was chosen to train all of the new recruits because her positive disposition makes war seem like a children's game and all the recruits that train under her are more likely to stay in the army and more importantly, they are more likely to survive. Anyone can tell that she truly enjoys her job and is very enthusiastic about it. Rumor has it that she always carries at least three guns somewhere on her wherever she goes but she have neither confirmed nor denied this. She sees Cookie as her 16 foot tall puppy and they are fiercely protective of each other. She is very childish for her age although her height and physique say otherwise and she sees the battlefield as a playground. This can be dangerous for both her enemies and her allies. Her erratic behavior makes her a difficult target to predict but it also makes her an unreliable leader. When Bijou does not get her way she turns into the most stubborn person on the planet. When she gets upset she does not yell or scream or turn into a bitch she simply ignores whomever dared to tell her no. She does not communicate, cooperate or associate with the person until they give in to her demands. So long as Joujou is kept happy, which isn't that hard to do, she is a pleasant, bubbly, helpful asset to the West.

Skills: Commander Sinclair is an excellent marksman with mastery of many different types of guns. She is especially fond of machine guns and assault rifles. So much so that she has two closets. One for her clothes and another for her guns. She has exceptional aim and is usually employed as sniper for the military. However her irrational nature usually means that once she has dispatched her target she will continue to kill any of the enemy that she sees fit. Her preferred form of attack is to ride Cookie into battle and shoot from above. This way is easier for her to injure, maim, or even kill as many of the enemy as possible while maintaining a safe distance. Any shots fired at her can easily be seen and avoided. Her unpredictability makes her an excellent strategist. The enemy never know how, when, or where the attack is going to come from, sometimes it doesn't come at all but her style of attack is always shifting and changing, constantly keeping them on their toes.

History: Despite her upbeat attitude Bijou has a very tragic past. She never got to meet her mother due to the fact that she died during childbirth and her father disappeared before she was even born. She lived in an orphanage and everyone believed that she was sure to be adopted because of her bright personality. This never happened though; when she was only three the orphanage caught fire and she was the only survivor. To this day she still has scars from the burns on her lower back and feet. When the orphanage burned down she decided to live on her own rather than go to another orphanage somewhere else. She lived on the streets for most of her youth, using her charm and cunning to steal whatever she needed, clothes, food, blankets, anything. When she was fifteen she saw a gun for the first time in her life. She was walking through a department store, casing the place when a masked man ran in and robbed the entire place at gunpoint. She had never seen a gun before and she was enamored at how effective it was at getting people to do your bidding. From that day on she begged, stole, and saved every penny she could spare to buy her first gun. It was a simple revolver but it worked fabulously the first time she used it to rob somewhere. After that she kept stealing from bigger and bigger places and used the money to buy more and more guns. When she turned eighteen she decided to put her skills to some use and she enlisted in the army. When they saw her shooting skills they immediately took her in and even allowed her to train the rest of the recruits in gun-slinging. She, like all the other recruits, chose her dinosaur after her fist two months of basic training. She raised Breyburn like he was her child, taking him everywhere she went and making sure his every need and want were met. Breyburn sees her as both a mother and an ally and the two are almost inseparable. She doesn't sleep in her room in the baracks she has her own rooftop apartment in the city where she lives with Breyburn. Bijou never knew her parents and she has never seen the need for parents but she subconsciously treats both Breyburn and every new recruit like a child of her own. She is gentle but firm with the recruits and when they misbehave she scolds them. It's actually quite amusing to watch since most of the recruits are taller than her and some are even older. It makes no difference, to her they are all her little flock.

So begins...

Bijou took a morning stroll through the city streets. Since London was the base of operations for the West she passed many familiar faces on her way. Some were in uniform and others were off duty but it was still easy for her to tell the soldiers from the civilians. She had trained most of the soldiers in the Western army and she could place a name to every face she saw. As she walked a large dinosaur flying overhead traced her every move, casting a long shadow around her. She smiled and raised her arms high above her head. Cookie knew the signal and he instantly swooped down, gently clutching her arms between his talons. He flew high above the city and flipped over, flying upside-down. He let go and she landed safely on his soft underbelly, she made her way to his neck and wrapped her legs tightly around it. Cookie flipped back over and Bijou rolled with him, now sitting comfortably on his neck and lightly touching the crest on top of his head to steer.

She led him down towards the training camp, it was in the countryside just outside of London. They landed on top of the recruits' barracks and she gently slid down. "Cookie, stay. She made her way downstairs, making sure no recruits tried to skip the first day of basic training. When she was satisfied that they were all outside and waiting she stepped out the front doors and made her way down to the facilities. The recruits had been ordered to line up in front of the obstacle course at 5:30 and wait. It was now 17;!5 and she could see that they were cold, tired, hungry, and cranky. Good, she told herself, they would have to get used to these conditions if they wanted to survive this war and if they hated her for it, so be it. But she wasn't about to go easy on them now and let them die later just because they couldn't keep up. She stopped in front of them and grinned deviously, "Cadets! Welcome to the first day of the rest of your lives!"

"Now recruits I won't sugarcoat it. Today is going to be tough. It will test your, physical, mental, and emotional boundaries and some of you will succumb to the grueling challenges awaiting you in this course. But, for those of you that do survive all I can say is this. Tomorrow will not be any easier, it will in fact be twice as hard as today and the day after tomorrow will be twice as hard as tomorrow, and so on and so forth until I am absolutely certain that those of you that remain are ready to face this war. Do I make myself clear?" The troops reply with a resounding "YES MA'AM!" She smiled, they were eager like all newbies were. Well, if they want to prove themselves then I'll just have to make sure they get enough opportunities. "Good. Just one last thing before we start, did anybody bring me my donuts and coffee, it's way to early to be out here without some caffeine."

She looked around and tried not to smile, of course none of them had brought her breakfast, they didn't even get to eat before coming out here. "No one? Well then I guess I'll just have to go get some and come back. But don't worry, you'll be busy while I'm gone. I want everyone to drill this obstacle course until I come back, no slacking! You see this camera here-" She pointed to a small, hovering orb nearby. "It will record each and every one of you and if I find that anyone has been slacking you will scrub the entire aviary from top to bottom, including the dinosaurs themselves." Without another word she raised her arms and was swept away by Cookie, leaving the troops to their work. This was a test of their stamina, loyalty, and coordiation. She rode Cookie into the city and landed atop her favorite bakery, London Cakes. She told Cookie to stay there and went down the stairs into the back of the bakery. She was a regular there and was friends with the owners, nice old people but in her opinion they were too old to be running a business. She dodged in between bakers and chefs while making her way to the front of the store to place her order. She was so wrapped up in not hitting anybody she fell over the front counter and hit somebody. Bijou looked up from her position on the floor and started to laugh "Sorry about that, I was so focused on not running into anybody that I didn't see you there, sorry again."

Zena smiled at the beautiful woman now on the floor. "It's alright! I wasn't watching myself, I was busy drooling over these cakes." Zena helped her up and smiled again apologetically. She went back to trying to pick out a tiny cake for herself and a loaf of cinnamon bread for Jask and herself for today and the rest of the week.

Jask trilled in her shoulder bag and struggled to get out. Zena didn't notice, as she was literally drooling over the chocolate cake. He wobbled over to Zena's feet and sniffed, and then to the woman's feet to sniff. Jask looked up at the woman and cocked his head curiously.

Bijou stood and smiled at the young lady, she recognized her like she did almost every soldier. She giggled as the little dinosaur looked up at her. She knelt down and looked at him. He was healthy and looked kind of hungry but generally happy. "Well hello there little fella, I'm Bijou what's your name? Did your mama bring you here for some treats? Have you been a good-" She paused and looked at him closely. "-boy?" She stood and addressed Mrs. Thompson behind the counter. "I'll have my regular Mrs. T. Two glazed and a caramel frap to go. Actually, I think I'll stay and eat, those recruits looked like they could use the exercise." She turned to the woman who she had run into. "So soldier, what brings you cuties to my cafe?"

Zena turned towards the woman, noticing her bag was lighter. She looked around and finally spotted Jask on the floor near the woman's feet. "Jask! Naughty boy!" Zena picked the dinosaur up from the floor and put him in her bag. "I hope no one saw you." She looked up to the woman and smiled nervously. "Wait, how'd you know that I'm fighting for the West?" She adjust her bag on her shoulder and then sifts her guns uncomfortably on her belt and back under her shirt.

Bijou giggled, raptors could be a handful, she was glad she had chosen Cookie. He was so easy to deal with when he was little, he had been kind of clingy to her and sort of a crybaby making him easy to handle but not the best choice for a battle steed. She had been worried that he wouldn't toughen up enough to handle the throes of war but in their very first battle he showed excellent nerves and even managed to save her life when her excitement got the better of her. Thinking of her newbie days and all the mischief she got into made her laugh even more and it was some time before she could reply to the young lady. "You probably don't remember me but my name is Commander Bijou Sinclair and it's my job to make sure all new recruits go through basic training and get their first dinosaurs. Judging by the age of this little fella I'm guessing you were in last year's group. Don't worry about anyone seeing him, the folks who own this store are pretty dino friendly and they don't mind soldiers coming in here with them so long as they don't leave a mess."

Zena was confused. She had never seen this woman in her life. Maybe in a few battles, trying to show off to some newbies, but she had never officially met Bijou before. "I'm sorry, but you must have me mixed up with someone else. I'm Zena Cochoa," she said, shaking Bijou's hand. "I'm not a soldier, and I'm not part of a... Group, as you call it? I'm totally on my own. I found Jask here waddling down a dirt road aimlessly." She smiled lovingly at Jask.

Bijou looked at the girl, really looked at her, and realized she had made a mistake. "Oops, you're right I'm afraid we haven't met before. You remind me of an old recruit I trained, she got a raptor as well and that was just about a year ago. You kind of resemble her and when I saw him I just assumed you were her, my mistake." Bijou paid for her breakfast and took a sip of her coffee "Aren't you going to order something?" She said with a laugh. Bijou walked over to her usual seat by the front window and took a pack of smokes out of her breast pocket. She took a cigarette between two fingers and put it in her mouth gently nibbling on it. Did I forget to mention that Bijou only carries candy cigarettes? She doesn't smoke but she does like the look, feel, and taste of the candy smokes. She sat and looked out the window at all the people passing by, it was mid-morning now and people were getting up and ready for work. She continued to talk to the young woman as she gazed outside "If you're not too busy then come sit and chat with me." She gestured to the seat across from her own. "Just because we're strangers doesn't mean we can't have a civilized conversation does it?" She crossed her legs and took a bite of the cigarette "Besides, I'd love to hear more about that little cutie. He seems like a handful." She smiled at the little raptor, dinosaurs were so cute when they were tiny.

Zena smiled and nodded, "Sure! Let me just grab something for us to eat." Zena heads over to the counter and calls the old woman, telling her that she'd like the chocolate cake and a loaf of cinnamon bread. When she put the items in a bag, she headed toward Bijou. She was hesitant about sitting down, but finally did. [b]"So, commander, huh?" She took out the cake and started eating it. Then she unwrapped a piece of bread and gave it to Jask. He nibbled on it greedly.

Bijou dipped the cigarette in the whipped cream on top of her coffee and put it back in her mouth, still gazing at all the people going about their business, the people she had taken an oath to protect from those Eastern bastards. She still stood by that oath, this world had not been kind to her but she would protect it with her life if necessary. Bijou took another bite of her cigarette, it was not much more than a stub now but she kept it in her mouth regardless and glanced at the woman sitting opposite her. Then she said something that to anyone who knew her was completely predictable, she said something incredibly random. "Do you know any blonde girls?"

Zena's eyes widened. She wasn't expecting that. "Um, no. I don't think so." Zena actually thought about it for a moment. "Why? Are you trying to locate someone?" She looked out the window with Bijou, trying to find someone blond. She found a boy, a few years older than her, walking by. He was definitely blond, almost white, and he was definitely attractive. He looked into the store at her for a moment and shook his head slightly. Zena gasped and practically hid under the table. "Hottie alert! Hottie alert!"

Bijou was still lost in the labyrinth of her mind, what she was contemplating only she knew. She was only halfway listening to what the young woman was saying, she was more focused on trying to find a blonde girl around their age somewhere in her memory banks. "Yeah...trying to find...her." She finished her candy and took a sip of her iced coffee, cool and refreshing just the way she liked it. While she pored through the many faces and names all cluttering her memory banks she stared off into space, she still faced the window but she didn't see any of the people passing by, instead all she saw were familiar faces from her past, some friendly some not but she knew them all. She was just looking through her teenage years when the young woman's gasp shook her back to reality. What was she saying 'tie alert'? Did she want some tea? Bijou blinked and focused, she wasn't asking for tea she was talking about a buy who had walked past the store. Bijou stood up quickly and went to the door, calling out to the young man, "Hey, wait!" He turned back and stared at her. She looked him up and down before saying "My friend thinks you're hot." His cheeks and ears turned a brighter shade of red than her hair, which was hard to do. She was impressed but she didn't have the chance to tell him so, with his cheeks and ears still burning he spun around and walked away. Bijou shrugged and returned to her seat. "He thinks you're hot too."

Dastun felt his neck, face, and ears burn in embarassment. Hot? She thinks I'm hot? he thought. He pulled the image of blue hair and dark blue eyes from his memory. She wasn't too bad herself. And he saw the metal of her gun, was she like him? Was she fighting for the West also? He did notice a little dinosaur too, in her shoulder bag. He'd have to confront the two later, but for now, he needed to go meet Gagne at the field where they both practice.

-

"Bijou! Don't do that!" Zena looked to the boy's back and then to Bijou. Zena had always been shy, especially of boys. She finished her cake and pet Jask on the head. "You see, I've never actually talked to a boy before."

Bijou almost choked on her donut when she heard that. How could someone have gone their entire life without talking to someone, anyone of the opposite sex? For the first time in her life Bijou Sinclair was speechless, she just couldn't wrap her mind around the concept of never having said even one word to a boy. Even when she was young and used to 'collect' donations she would talk to the people she got them from. When Bijou finally recovered from the initial shock her mind flooded with questions and she asked them all. "Do you mean like a boy our age or any male? How old are you anyway? Weren't there boys in your class at school or boys in your neighborhood you could talk to? Why haven't you made the initiative to talk to one anyways, I mean that blonde one thought you were cute, why didn't you talk to him?" When Bijou had finished her flurry of questions she finished her first donut and took another sip of her coffee. She would have to get going soon, the recruits must be exhausted by now and she didn't want them to be too worn out. There was still a full day of training ahead. Besides that Cookie would be wondering why she was taking so long and he would start to worry.

Zena laughed a little at all the questions, she decided to answer them all. "Well, I haven't talked to a boy of our age. I'm 16 and I dropped out of middle school to fulfill my father's destiny." Zena's voice started to waver, "Anyway, um, I've been on my own ever since I was 13. So, imagine a tiny me trying to talk to a boy at a market stall, just trying to pay for some food. And yes, there were boys in the neighborhood and at school, my hormones weren't as productive as they are now." Zena started to remember her past, something she hadn't done in a while. Something she didn't want to do, something she wasn't comfortable with.

She remembered her mother saying she would wait for her daughter to come home, and when she did, she would make a yummy cake. Zena's throat tightened and she tried not to cry, something else that she hadn't done in a long time. "And I haven't tried to talk to a boy because I'm always practicing, training Jask, or just trying to live, to eat, trying to make some money, to have fun by myself. I'm on my own, I think you're one of the very few people that has ever actually wanted to have an actual conversation with me. There also have been boys who have wanted to make little conversation with me, but I don't know what to say to them. My throat doesn't produce any words." Zena looked at the woman in front of her and then outside through the window display.

Bijou looked at the young woman. Uh oh, it looked like she had hit a nerve with her careless questioning. She really did have to work on her sensitivity skills. She decided to change the subject before she said anything else offensive. "Well all the people who didn't talk to you when they had the chance really missed out, too bad for them. You know, I don't even know your name. Mind filling me in stranger? And as for the boys the first thing you should say is just "Hi", introduce yourself and see where the conversation goes from there." Bijou started on her second donut. She could hear Cookie pacing up and down on the roof now and she really should have been getting back but she didn't want to leave just yet and besides she hadn't even finished her breakfast yet.

"Oh, my name is Zena Cochoa! It's nice to meet you." She smiled and gave Jask another piece of bread, "Okay, that's enough for one day, cutie." She put the bread in her waist pouch to keep it away from the baby dinosaur, he sure loved his cinnamon bread. Jask purred happily and kept taking humongous bites out of the bread slice. "Anyway, boys aren't really my priority right now. At least, my father wouldn't have approved of me chasing after some boys. But thanks for the advice." Zena smiled brightly at Bijou. She seemed like a beautiful, confident (obviously) woman, a lot of things that Zena was not.

Bijou smiled at her new acquaintance. "It's nice to meet you too Zena. I don't think you should chase after boys and I'm all for you keeping your goals as priority number 1, but if a nice guy comes along, talk to him. Show him some of that natural charm you've got hidden away in there." Bijou stood up and was just about to say her goodbyes when Cookie leapt from the roof of the building and landed in the street below, lightly pecking on the glass for her to come out. Apparently he thought it was time to get back as well and he was getting impatient. She laughed and stood up "Looks like my ride is here." She stood up and handed Zen a card with the military's information on it. On the back was Bijou's personal phone number. "Well if you ever feel like enlisting we sure could use someone like you. Give me a call if you're interested." She was just about to walk out the door but she stopped. "Keep in mind that shouldn't be the only reason you call me." With a smile and a wave she left the shop and mounted Cookie, flying off back towards the training camp.

"Okay big fella, we've got a big day ahead of us. Drop me off by the training grounds but don't go too far I want to do a demonstration with you for the recruits. Just as a little incentive for them to really want to finish basic training and get their own dinosaurs." They arrived at the training grounds where surprisingly, all the recruits were still going around the obstacle course. Anyone could see that they were exhausted but they had drilled it so many times that they could do it with their eyes closed, some of them were so exhausted that they did. When she landed she blew the whistle signaling them to stop. It was now midday and she laughed at the relieved smiles on their faces, some even drooped to their knees. "Alright rookies, grab some water and line up. Your day has only begun." She gestured to a nearby table with water coolers and plastic cups. She watched as most of them eagerly gulped it down, a few of them knew better and only took a few sips but most guzzled the water as though they had been in the desert for weeks. Once they were all lined up and slightly less sweaty she gave them their next directive. " I hope you all feel better because now you are going to do a little running. It's 4 miles to the track and once you get there I expect you to run another 10 miles. Once you've finished, run back here for a total of 18 miles. Aren't you glad you drank all that water? If you vomit you clean it and the barrack bathrooms for a month. GO!" She blew her whistle and they all took of towards the track. Bijou strolled after them and thought of Zena, Bijou hoped she took her up on her offer to join up, they really could use a soldier like her and she seemed like some social activity and comradery wouldn't hurt her. As she walked she saw some of them were already struggling, it was going to be an interesting day.

Zena looked down at the card and nodded. If she hadn't had anywhere to go, she promised to herself that she would seek Bijou. Zena got up and thanked the old women, then headed out the door. She ran until she got to her practicing field. She taught Jask here, practiced herself, and was currently living there. She set Jask down and started to make her way over the fairly sized makeshift obstacle course made out of scrap metal and sticks. There were jumps, targets, dummies, pits and there was even a pit full of snakes. She went around it until her muscles hurt. Zena sat down and took a swig from her water bottle. Training was hard, but she loved every bit of it.

"Wow, you're good," a deep voice said.

Zena looked up and saw the blond boy from earlier with a sword on his belt and definitely did not have a shirt on. "Oh, um, thank you." Then the boy's face started to get red. He just remembered her.

He rubbed the back of his neck, "No problem. Um, you were the girl from the cake place, am I right?"

Zena hesitated, was this considered talking? Was he trying to make conversation with her? "Yes, I was. And you were the guy that went up into flames." She chuckled a bit at the memory.
