Through time, Vixen first developed a dislike for the Coalition and then developed into almost a hatred. She is wary of most supernatural creatures, D-Bees, and non humans but she can work with them. While she is wary of magic using individuals, the is least wary of Techno-Wizards. In any case, she can work with even those she does not quite trust. She is comfortable around psychics because she is one herself even though she is a relatively weak psychic compared to many.
She is a skilled mercenary both in her own fighting abilities and in general military tactics. Vixen is not well read but has always been very intuitive with both tactics and strategy. Even as a common soldier, her suggestions to those senior to herself were often excellent. In many ways, this may have actually created problems with those senior to herself even though she never was pushy with her suggestions.
Since becoming a commander, Vixen has shown a natural flare for command although is far quieter than many commanders. As with many of the best commanders, she prefers to compel whenever possible. Compared to some officers, she is more sympatric to the common troops although she realizes that losses are inevitable. A general loyalty to those around her is a part of her personality.
As far as injuries, she is able to live with her pretty severe injuries and still keeps in good shape. Still, she ha no interest in becoming a full conversion cyborg as some might have done. She kind of has mixed feelings about her bionic arm. It is useful but just does not have the feelings of her original arm. Her other implants are more naturally part of herself.

Vixen is surprisingly tall for a women and muscular in a whipcord fashion, quite muscular for working out One item that people notice right away is her unusual blueish purple eyes from being bio-system cybernetics. She often highlights them with dark blue often almost purple highlights. Her hair is black which hangs straight down. Usually she wears her hair down to the middle of her back although sometimes she will wear it in a pony tail down her back. Other than eye shadows, she often wears very dark lip stick even in some cases black. On her non-cybernetic arm she similarly has her nails often painted black or another extremely dark color. Vixen's bionic left arm is a metallic grey / almost silver in color.
In some cases, Vixen likes to wear black leather but her normal duty dress is a simple dark grey jumpsuit with black striping. Body armor is a similar dark grey although she has her Coalition body armor modified so it does not have the skull type helmet and a more conventional helmet style.

Character Background:

She is the first born daughter of an illiterate and impoverished farmer and his wife. The family lived in the Coalition State of Iron Heart. Besides her, there were two other children. She had both a younger brother and a younger sister. Conditions were very poor and she was willing to attempt anything to forge a life for herself. She tried to join the Coalition army when she was fifteen but was unable to fool the recruiters into allowing her to join. This was the first element that started her not liking the Coalition.

A few months later, she was able to find a mercenary company from Europe that had been brought in by Triax Industries to train Coalition troops in the use of newly purchased equipment. She was able to convince the leader to let her join the company and this began her life as a mercenary. In her training, she was taught to read and write as well as military skills. When the equipment familiarization of the Coalition soldiers was complete, the Company moved back to Europe. The company fought against the Gargoyles, the Brodkil, and fought in skirmishes between the lesser nations that are not directly part of the New German Republic. She was much smarter than her background let the leader of the mercenary company believe and while she was in the Mercenary company, she made the rank of Sergeant and would have likely become an officer soon if she had stayed.

The company ran into bad luck fighting a group of monsters and three quarters of the company was killed. Vixen herself was badly injured and had her left arm replaced by a bionic arm. Other injuries required extensive surgery and it was over eight months before she was ready to work again. By this time, the mercenary company had split up. Eventually, the leader of the company was able to form a new mercenary company but Vixen had already moved back to North America by this time.

Back in North America, Vixen thought about working for the Coalition or joining another Mercenary Company but decided to try her hand as an independent adventurer first. She ended up in a motley group which included a Human Operator, Elven Ley Line Walker among its number. The group ended up several time working with a Lizard Mage and what appeared to be his shifter apprentice whom he called Lilly. It was only later that the group found out that Lilly was some kind of half demon. Several times, the group ended up having to fight against the Coalition and this started her on a greater dislike for the Coalition.

After earning enough credits to support her family in more luxury, she decided to travel to her home. Several of her companions decided to join her including the operator who she had become lovers with by this time. The town had been attacked by bandits who took the younger people of the village to be sold to the Splugorth Slavers. Her younger brother managed to escape and tell her what happened in the village. He told her that her younger sister had been captured by the bandits and her parents were killed in the raid. She also found out that the Coalition State of Iron Heart did not send any forces to protect the village because it was rumored that the people in the village were harboring D-Bees. This event firmly set her hatred for the Coalition. Vixen and her companions set out to rescue her sister and were able to pull her from the hands of the Slavers just before they left for Atlantis. Vixen's sister had been maltreated by the bandits and the slavers and required a long time to recover.

After being in a mercenary company herself and having adventured for several years, Vixen decided to see if she could form a mercenary company. Ratchet, the operator who was her lover was starting a manufacturing facilities where they had found an old Pre-Rifts manufacturing complex. This complex, which is to the west of Tolkeen, also became the base for her mercenary company know as Vixen's Pride. The weapon and vehicle factories gave her immense support and her mercenary company was able to expand rapidly.

After a few years of being leader of the Mercenary Company, Vixen and Ratchet decided to start a family. Due to injuries that had taken place when she served in Europe, she had to be very careful when pregnant and had to have constant medical care. She eventually conceived a daughter which they agreed on the name "Antonia." The body fixers recommended that Vixen prevent any chance of having any more children and she agreed with the doctors.
