Anyway, here's my character for the purposes of forming squads and things. Who's going to form the squads, btw? I get the impression that Warlord plans to be a field soldier...probably a squad leader, TJ. Now, we all know who his chosen medic will be, though we'll have to watch to see that he's not stepping on grenades on purpose.
I'll fill in more detail on my character later probably, but here she is so far.
Name: Tamara Hilliard
Callsign: Help! I'm dying! (Just kidding! I'm still thinking about this one. She may just be Tammy.)
Background: Medical training, obviously, but specifically spent a few years as a field medic in the US Army. Due to bravery under fire and a sixth sense about how best to treat injured soldiers, X-COM has decided that she has what it takes to patch up their best agents. (It's easier than starting over with new ones! )
Well, she looks like me....5'6" about 125 lbs. Never leaves a wounded soldier because of being under fire. She just pulls out her pistol and blows away any aliens who try to come near her patients. She prefers laser weapons because she's too busy treating patients to reload. Has been known to sit up all night with a recovering patient, so she's well accustomed to sleeping in chairs.
Somewhat lighthearted and flirtatious--probably because the job is so gruesome and demanding. Consequently prone to a twisted sense of humor.
Strength: Not high, but bursts of adrenaline often make her able to lift injured men who outweigh her considerably (no comments, please)
or to lift heavy objects off of the injured.
Speed: Average to above average, depending on the situation
Stamina: Can go for days on little to no sleep or food when treating patients, but then may collapse into coma-like sleep for hours after several days of that. (Only when off-duty, of course! )
Mental condition: Optimistic....see personal information for further details
Psionic potential: Not open to mind control, but not likely to be controlling minds either
Bravery: High when an injured soldier is at stake, but not prone to heroics otherwise. Too busy patching up the people who are.
Controller: Tammy, but most of you know me well enough to write her in wherever you like.
