THIS IS WHAT MAKES US GIRLS [MEETING & PROMOS 7/22]
« on: July 22, 2018, 07:37:35 PM »
Another eventful week had gone by, but not the events that Marine had been expecting. She'd seen Angie, but the rest of the Rogues hadn't attacked. Two more people had joined (or rejoined) their ranks, and things were getting more lively around camp. It was a good week. She was going to try to focus on that instead of the growing dread.

"Meeting." The Guardian said, taking up her usual spot by the stump. She waited a few minutes, then once she was satisfied with the size of the crowd, launched into the announcements. "First of all, welcome to Fern and welcome back to Maika. It's good to have you both here. We've got a bit of a situation with another group, and while they haven't raided us yet, I fear it's only a matter of time." Any day now they'd come. Any day now.

"I'm holding a search party, as it's likely that when they do raid, they'll force us out. So anything or anyone you want to find, now's the time to do it." Bleak news, but she had something good to announce as well. "I'd like to promote Wesley and Max to Pages. Keep up the good work, you two." She smiled grimly, the two of them (along with the joiners) had been a bright spot on the horizon.


OOC Summary:
Welcome (back) to Fern/Van and Maika/Finny! It's great to have you guys here again.
Marine predicts that the Rogues will raid soon, which they will. I don't wanna put a timeline on it because I'm really bad at keeping those, but it'll be soon, almost certainly this week (if not, next). I just need to iron out a few more things and then we should be good to go.
Marine's leading a search party.
Wesley and Max are promoted to Page.

Physical
♦ HUMAN | Health: 80%
Marine is a fairly tall young woman, with the lean, muscular body of someone who spent her entire life training while not getting enough to eat. The scars on her body (the most visible being one on her brow and several on her arms and hands) are souvenirs of a great many fights. The scars on her legs and torso are hidden by her clothes - typically she wears a tank top, combat boots, and fingerless gloves, with no particular favored pants or shorts. When venturing out, she's often seen with a red backpack regardless of what she wears, it's almost guaranteed that there will be a great deal of dirt, as well as different stains, most being blood. Marine is actually filthy everywhere, and her long dark hair is in tangles most of the time, though recently she has shaved the side of her head. She has aquamarine eyes that can in certain lighting appear almost light green.

Important Info
▪ Largely illiterate.
▪ First priority is her own survival, all else comes secondary. Will prioritize children heavily before adults, and may even distrust and dislike adults, possibly blaming those in their forties or later for the blackout.
▪ Heavily armed with a sniper rifle (no ammo, used for intimidation), a handgun (4 bullets), a compound bow (8 arrows), a swiss army knife, a few other knives and daggers that she's picked up over the years. Uses the bow most for hunting and is most proficient with that, though she is capable with all of her weapons.
▪ Speaks English and French; is more likely to swear in French than English.
▪ Opinions, motivations and thoughts are always 100% in character and do not reflect the roleplayer's opinions.

Personality
Marine is someone who is often more motivated by her negative traits (such as her selfishness, cynicism and pride) while displaying her more positive ones (such as her diplomacy skills, responsibility and maturity) to the world. First and foremost in her mind is her own survival, followed by the lives of children. She tends to distrust people older than herself (especially 40+) due to her upbringing, but keeps her opinions to herself... mostly. She's a social person and rather friendly (though difficult to befriend), and is usually pretty chill. Marine is a very hard-worker and can actually be somewhat ruthless. She's done a number of bad things in the past but doesn't see herself as a bad person, and though she views regret as a pointless emotion she's turned over a new leaf and is trying to be better.
Diplomatic, intelligent, maternal, responsible, social
Cynical, selfish, prideful, ruthless

Relationships
▪ NPC x NPC | Parents were killed when she was young
▪ Bisexual | Biromantic
▪ Single | Ex Marngie | Ex Menna
▪ Protective of those younger than her, distrustful of those older than her.

Interaction
Physically Hard | Mentally Hard | Will start and finish fights

Still fully capable both with and without weapons
Guns are for intimidation, bow is for hunting, knives are for fighting
No kill/capture/maim without permission

Max's first meeting in Northstar District. How nice. Had a week already passed? Damn. Time certainly flies on by when you least except it to. The short-haired young adult had approached, upon hearing the Guardian's call for a meeting.

A welcome to Fern and a welcome back to Maika. A search party? Huh, she wondered who they'd be looking for in the jungle. Then, she heard Wesley and herself being mentioned. Promotions? That was nice, she supposed. Marine must be confident that Max could handle duties.

"Thanks, Marine." She said. "And congrats to Wesley too."

His second meeting, it seemed time kept flying past. Though he'd spent two weeks in Northstar, he still felt like quite the outsider; oh well, at least he wasn't alone. He listened to Marine welcoming Fern and Maika and announced a search party; that was good, most people around here seemed to be searching for people.

And then a promotion for him and Max, to Pages. He was uncertain about it; he never meant to stay with Northstar permanently, but Marine was stressed enough that he didn't want to lump his allegiance in with that.

"Alright, thank you Marine." Wesley said. "And congratulations to you too, Max." He said, giving a quick smile and thumbs-up to Max.

James shuffled over and took up his usual spot off to the side, observing silently as Marine made the announcements. Welcomes, promotions. Some good news this week. That was nice. ❝Congratulations.❞ Having additional ranks was still a bit strange to him, but there was an order to it, a hierarchy. In the Young Rogues it was one leader and the rest, and when the leader is overthrown there is anarchy. He kind of likes this way better.
