How about that for a start?
Mira or Mirushka
Medic, Pistolero and, later on, Psionic
Shades of Green
Growing up in the somg-choked worker-class suburbs of Haifa, Mira was a quiet, yet curious child who saw little happiness in her early life. Her mind, however, was quite sharp, and her imagination was solid; what she could not satisfy in her material life, she made up to from books, daydreams and quiet friendly chatter. Her intellectual abilities eventually led to a relatively successful graduation from high school and to her drafting to the IDF as a semi-field medic (this is where she had her military experience: training with the M16 Assault Rifle, and more than that - the Galil MAR carbine, which should count as a "handgun" in UFO:AM terms, as well as sone experience on the Uzi SMG - which is used only for traing in the IDF these days - but mostly medic training).
After her military service she applied to the Hebrew university in Jerusalem to study biology, which she graduated with fine marks; she marked the completion of her Bachelor's Degree by a cross-Europe trip, in the spring of 2004, with a few of her friends (Olga, Ariella and Avram). The Fall caught her in the Paris metro system, where she hid out with other survivors in one of the less contaminated segments of the system; her friends, who staid at the hotel while she took the metro, did not survive. She signed up with the Council of Earth in early December 2004 out of despair and in the hopes of revange.
Mira was, most of her life, a dreamy but unhappy person. Thebest parts of her life were in high school and in the university, two worlds which are now far behind her. With three of her best friends (especilly Avram who was slowly becoming her boyfriend) dead, she is quite depressed, however she finds ways out of that depression by cooking (one of her two favorite passtimes), reading/daydreaming (her second favorite passtime), by helping others in a "motherly" way and by swearing revange - and serving in the organization which is the instrument of that revange. She speaks Hebrew and English well, and could handle herself in French (living a few months with French survivors in the Paris metro will teach you the language).
Mira is a short, somewhat round young woman standing 1.66 meters tall and weighting 81 kilograms. She has shoulder-length smooth black hair (which she wears loose) and deep green eyes; out of uniform she dresses causally (usually jeans and a T-shirt).

Hmmm... fell in love with that character. I gotta see if I can use her as a starting character rather than Melcolm.
