Colette Delacroix

Basic Info:

Player: Aiden Eldritch

Position: Para-medic

Demeanor: Colette is a naturally curious and inquisitive woman, constantly learning and tinkering with the latest advancements in medical science. This drive to absorb more and more information gives her an overbearing, forceful approach to conversations that makes her seem socially inept at best and straight-up creepy at worst. Despite her penchant for making people uncomfortable with the most benign of questions, Colette seems like she's trying to be warm and friendly, if a little misguided in how she expresses this.

Nature: Genuinely bemused by her seeming inability to get across her good intentions, Colette feels a certain distance from the rest of the task force. The fact that she's from an organisation that was up until recent times considered an enemy doesn't help this much, either. Notwithstanding her awful bedside manner, though, Colette really does try to do the best for her patients and squadmates, constantly researching and updating her body of medical knowledge with the latest findings and techniques courtesy of her aggressive reading habits.

Description: Colette is a short black woman of average build, with long black hair that goes down to the small of her back. In the field, she wears appropriate combat gear for her job as a medic, while on more casual outings she'll wear simple sundresses, or shirts and jeans depending on the weather. Even when she's outside of the surgery, she's frequently seen in her trademark latex gloves. This self-admittedly spoils the entire point of sterile gloves, but Colette likes to think it gives her a little bit of flair.

Specialties
  • M.Anom: (2) As would be expected from someone who did their masters on therianthropy, having a body plan that would boggle a normal medic doesn't faze Colette in the slightest. Colette gets a +2 bonus to Medical rolls when treating patients with anomalous physiology.
  • Hypocritic Oath: (3) Healers don't belong in an organisation well-known for their affinity for blowing things up. That said, a medic who knows how to assemble, clean and fire a Daevite legbone is a useful thing in the field. Colette gets a +3 to combat rolls when using esoteric weaponry.
  • Stay Down: (3) Colette's naturally adept at getting the jump on an enemy – what she's even better at is using that element of surprise to her advantage. When Colette gets in close quarters of an enemy, she can roll Sneak against their Perception to launch a surprise attack on them: if she succeeds, she can then Melee attack that enemy without giving them the chance to roll Agility.
  • When You're Going Down: (4) What use is a medic who's unconscious? Colette has endured the worst of major trauma, whether that be physical or otherwise. If Colette would be knocked out by an attack, she can roll a 4df+4 against a DC of the damage she would take. If she succeeds, she doesn't get knocked out.

Personal History:

Operative Designation: "Limpet"
Real Name: Colette Delacroix
Nationality: American
Date of Birth: 07-MAR-1920

Biographical Information: Operative "Limpet" was born in 1920 as the daughter of an ICSUT thaumaturge and lecturer. Due to her father being unaware of his partner's status as a GOC operative, "Limpet" was raised in New Orleans as an ordinary child unaware of the Veil, before being drafted into the Coalition as part of Seventh Occult War recruiting efforts. Despite her mother's status as a Type Blue, "Limpet" showed little aptitude for thaumaturgy and was instead trained by the World Parahealth Organisation as a medical officer certified to treat both ordinary injuries and para-diseases, such as lycanthropy and vampirism.

Following the completion of her training, "Limpet" was deployed as part of PHYSICS Strike Team 1800 "Hotliners" and was deployed in multiple theaters of the Seventh Occult War, including the Dieppe Raid and the Ardennes Counteroffensive. At the conclusion of the Seventh Occult War, "Limpet" returned to the New Orleans branch of the Coalition and assisted in treating veterans of the War for injuries and paradiseases they contracted. Following the recovery of LTE-0088-Clockwork Blackwood ("Amateur Timetraveller") and the subsequent retirement of Strike Team 1800's designation, "Limpet" volunteered to transfer to the Foundation as part of an exchange program and now resides there as part of MTF Psi-7 ("Home Improvement").
