ALWAYS QUICK TO FOLLOW [open, ND invitation]
« on: September 12, 2018, 02:47:41 PM »
Despite having agreed to the alliance rather easily, there was still some part of Marine that was apprehensive about the Badlands. Perhaps it was their reputation, or the fact that she wasn't really sure what to expect from them at a party with groups that... weren't their allies. She could hope for the best, but hoping wasn't really her style. Still, they were their allies and she had told Sheogorath to expect an invitation to Wesley's shindig, so here she was, standing on the border, her hands on her hips as she waited. A place like this would surely have patrols going by fairly often, so she didn't raise her voice to attract attention. Yet.

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.

With the suspicion , though not as heavy as what it may used to have been during Charlie's reign , that lingers even after the acceptance of an alliance between Northstar and the Badlands , anyone in their right of mind can't blame Marine for how she feels towards the group , now can they ? The Badlands were a savage bunch , many were aware ; a pack of wolves who conducted the slaughter of countless sheep — a nasty coterie that prided themselves on bloodstained teeth , eyes like the devil , and dirtied finger tips — not the kind of people that indulged in parties . And people like Marine — people who still clung to their humanity , here , were nothing more than foolish mice ; easy targets . It was only smart to be cautious — avoid trampling on anyone's toes . Especially Parks' own . It would be rather unfortunate to meet your fate inside the jaws of the biggest and baddest of them all when it was all so avoidable , yeah ? However , why Northstar's guardian sought out the presence of the Badlands' own , isn't known to Parks as she's alerted by an NPC grunt of her arrival . It hadn't been long since she had ordered the former proxy , Sheogorath , to make an impromptu visit to further discuss their relationship with the other group , so obviously , with Marine's sudden appearance , there was something important that hadn't been addressed then , she assumes .

‘ Marine , ’ draw of the guardian's name , her tone is void of its typical unhinged malice , now replaced by a cold neutrality . Long time , no see , indeed . Quite a bit of time has passed since their first encounter ; back when Parks still lugged around the paltry title of ' soldier ' , it's almost funny to think that she'd end up here as the new leader of the Badlands even when Sheogorath and Kit , had gotten leverage over her for so long . Surely , Marine wouldn't have expected Parks to be the one to succeed Charlie either . Not many did . But , here she was . ‘ There a problem ? ’

Marine would not consider herself a savage, but then, people like her tended to think they were above that sort of thing. The fact of the matter was, she wasn't above it. She might be trying to be a better, more peaceful person, but seeing her old group had awaken something in her, something ruthless and violent. Things that appalled the woman she'd been becoming meant nothing to her now, and perhaps the worst part of it was that she didn't even realize it.

And there was Parks, arriving quickly as Marine had predicted. "To the contrary," she said, offering the other leader a (tight) smile. "I don't suppose Sheogorath mentioned that we were planning a party, did he?" She hadn't placed any bets on who would be the one to inherit the Badlands at the inevitable end of Charlie's reign, as she wasn't familiar enough with the group or the people in it to get a good idea of who the likely successor was.

A . . . party ? So that's what she was here for ? To hand out a party invitation reserved in their name ? Parks doesn't return the other leader's smile , instead , she allows her lips to purse into a thin line and a brow to curve in following question . ' No , ' she begins with the slight shake of her head . No news of a party was brought to her attention by her second , which was considerably odd for a guy like Sheogorath who thoroughly enjoyed such events . Usually , he'd be bursting at the seems with his unsettling , yet , over-ecstatic demeanor , begging like a dog at the foot of a dinner table for Parks to at least consider allowing the group to attend , but this time around , that image of him , was void . He was gone — vanished without a word whispered and a questionable struggle , leaving behind nothing but tiny drops of scarlet that bled into the fine gold of sand granules . Marine wasn't aware of his sudden disappearance — nobody else was either — just the Badlands , or so that was assumed , but that wasn't information she was looking to disclose anytime soon or at all , for that matter . " He didn't , " tone of the flat statement drops lower , a hint of mild suspicion leaking into her words in the way they were uttered slow , almost . . accusing . " What about this party ? We suppose to be your special guests ? "

Huh. It seemed like there was a decent amount of communication between Sheogorath and Parks, considering she'd sent him to Northstar to negotiate an alliance, though recalling the dynamic she'd seen the first time she had come here, she couldn't say she was entirely surprised that he hadn't spoken with her about it. "It's a gala my Emissary is hosting. A little celebration since we've settled into our new home, and since there's gonna be a lot of people there, there's also a place to trade. We wanted to invite all of our allies and prospective allies, and the Badlands is in the former camp now."
