She'd scarcely seen James since their last fight, and while he normally glowered for quite a bit after they argued, normally she'd have seen him by now. What if something happened? What if he's hurt? As much anger was still lingering, he was still her friend, and she wasn't going to stop caring about him over something like this. Even if some resentful part of her wanted to just say "fuck him" and leave him to whatever he'd gotten himself into.

But she couldn't do that. For one, that would mean he was right, that she had changed. For two... she really couldn't stand the idea of just abandoning him. So here she was, knocking on people's doors and asking if they'd seen him. Most people seemed surprised, remarked how they hardly saw him without her and now that they thought about it, it did seem weird that she'd been alone for the past few weeks. Some people were sure that they'd seen him, but no one knew where he was.

This was starting to really stress her out. She kept walking through the city, though, muttering curses in French under her breath between doors. How long had it been? The sun was starting to go down, so it must have been a few hours.

♦ 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.

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.
