Name: Stiletto
True Name: Angelica Mitchell

M.D.C.: 80
Attributes: I.Q.: 20 (+7% / +3), M.E.: 15, M.A.: 9, P.S.: 23 (+8), P.P.: 24 (+5), P.E.: 29 (+7/+28%), P.B.: 23 (65%), SPD: 32
Weight: 139 lbs (63.1 kg) Height: 5 ft 7 in (1.7 meters)
Age: 20 years Race: Human (Super Soldier) Sex: Female P.P.E.: 40
Disposition:
While she puts up a tough girl appearance and that she needs no one, she really wants to find love and an attention. In many ways, she is struggling for how to live her life. Maybe she is looking for romance but she is likely not even too sure herself. No one should mistake that she is capable of holding her own and she is almost as tough as she appears.
She is quite loyal to those who serve under her and will do whatever she can to keep them alive. In that, she is a good officer. She tends to not have the stringent regard for the rules that some officers have but is still a soldier and realizes that some rules do need to be observed. As such, she can be a bit harsh on those under her. Her regard for the troops under her means that she will argue with someone over her if needed.
After the situation which occurred, she has a distrust of the Coalition Leaders verging on hatred. She has no real hatred of soldiers although clearly knows she needs to be careful with them. Officers are treated extremely carefully. One of her specific concerns with the Coalition is that they want to reproduce her super soldier treatment on others.
As far as non humans, she never was an unthinking hater of them although the Coalition tried to train it into her. That sometimes interferes with her thought process although she does her best to treat them as individuals not all the same. Of course, there are good reason to distrust some of them and she realizes that. Her treatment of those with skills in magic is similar.

Character Background:


Stiletto was born the daughter of a Colonel Trevor Mitchell. Her father is a well know officer of the Coalition territory of Lone Star and was the hero of several campaigns and was a rising star. She lived most of her childhood in military facilities set up for officers with families along with her three brothers and two sisters. While very disciplined by normal twentieth century standards, he childhood was relatively normal and there was much love in the family. All of the children got an excellent education from the state as well as getting further education by there parents. Much of the parents teaching was slightly heretical by Coalition standards including a different history than was taught by the Coalition. The children were taught that they should never reveal to anyone else what they were taught by their parents.


Along with most of her siblings and her father, she decided join the Coalition when old enough to join at sixteen years of age. She took officer aptitude tests and scored high enough to get into officer training. She easily passed through basic military training and went into the advanced courses to become a military specialist. Because of her fathers status, it was easy for her to pass through security checks. Because she was very intelligent and dedicated, she graduated from training when she was eighteen years old which is slightly younger than normal.


After she graduated officer training, she was assigned to serve as an intelligence officer to Colonel Paul Taylor. He was an old friend of her fathers and had been agreed on previous to her graduating. After about four months working as his intelligence officer she found out about a top secret super soldier formula from sources she had developed over several months. It was a pre-rifts treatment and had been developed for humans with certain gene types only which she was one of only about one percent that have the special genetic code. This program would make a person who was almost as capable as a juicer without all of the problems associated with Juicers. While the Scientists in Lone Star will not admit to programs that involve humans even to their own allies, they have experimented from time to time and this was one of them. She volunteered for the program and she was accepted due to her being one of the few than can accept the program and had excellent evaluations from her superiors. Unlike some similar programs, this one was completely successful for her as well as another three test subjects. The problem is that the treatments only work on a tiny percentage of humans so the program was eventually discontinued. The other three test subjects have died in the field. One died in an accident and the other two died in combat.


Like the others, she was assigned back to the field once the program finished. She worked in small scale intelligence operations. She found in some of these operation that she did not like some of the missions that involved the killing of innocents, wether human or of a D-Bee race. In sprite of this, she continued to do her job but did try to get people out of a town before they were attacked. This never reached her seniors and she was continued to considered for much higher ranks in the future.


Her career in the Coalition ended about six months later because her mother was dying of a disease and her father was desperate to find a cure. While technology could not cure the disease, it was relatively for a combination of magic and psionics to cure it. After exploring all other avenues, he decided that he would defect to the city of Tolkeen and give them intelligence in return for his wife being treated. He did not want the defection to make it dangerous for his children that were still within the Coalition so he created a disagreement between him and his children. Unfortunately, it did not work and within 48 hours of his defection, the Coalition decided to punish the family. The decision was that all of Colonel Trevor's family would be eliminated as a reprisals. In the space of one day, every one of her brothers and sisters were murdered. Even more horrifying, her oldest brother was killed only ten feet from her while she was trying to help him escape. Probably the reason that she survived is because they underestimated her special abilities and her own resourcefulness. She stole the SAMAS that she had been issued and the high speed of the power armor was a final factor in her being able to escape. While she was getting away, she destroyed the lab and equipment that created the super soldiers. Due to watching her brother getting killed, subsequently learning about all of her brothers and sisters being killed, and having her own people hunting her down and trying to kill her, she has severe nightmares.


She started working as a mercenary to support herself. She kept being ambushed by Coalition special teams and at first she could not figure out how they kept finding her but eventually she discovered that they had a tracer beacon implanted in her. She was able to get a doctor to remove the implant and since has had less problems with being pursued but she realizes that she needs to still be very careful. While adventuring, she worked with a SAMAS pilot from the Republic of Japan who got rifted to North America. She learned a lot about the Republic of Japan from him especially about their culture and technology. In combat, he was killed and his power armor was virtually destroyed. While the SAMAS could not be salvaged, she was able to salvage several other pieces of his equipment.
