Elizabeth "Lizzy" Geier

Player: LadyKatie

Position: Memetic Researcher and Cognitohazard Creator, Omega-5

Demeanor: Lizzy is a bit prickly. Between being quick to speak her mind and having an opinion on almost everything, she can be a little difficult to be around at first. But she's honest to a fault, and gets her job done well

Nature: Lizzy is either the best or worst person to hang out with off the clock, depending on what your idea of fun is. She's a bit of a wild child when she doesn't need to be a professional.

Description: Average height and slim build, black hair kept in a bob. Dresses comfortably normally, but loves her makeup. She can and will dress up when the occasion calls for it. Appears to have never seen the sun. Has two piercings in the tail of her right eyebrow, and a cluster of roses tattooed on her left shoulder blade.

Specialties

You have eight points to distribute among as many or as few specialty skills as you see fit (but at least three is almost always warranted). Remember to explain what each specialty entails.

  • Thou Art a Villain: 2 Lizzy has the ability to create cognitohazards, a nifty skill she picked up in college She can create CogHazs in her down time and can carry a reasonable number of them on a mission, which is specified before they leave the base. As it is extremely difficult to create a new CogHaz on the fly, she is either unable to do this on an actual mission or has to jump through an insane amount of hoops to do so.
    • Placeholder: 2
  • BFA: 3 Shockingly, Lizzy was a good student. She actually has her Bachelor's in Fine Arts, and even knows what to do with it!
  • "And you want how much for that? " 1: While far from an appraiser, Lizzy knows how to recognize an object of value. Metal stamps, weight, logos, all things her mother taught her that can tell you if an object is even worth taking to an appraiser. (PERC, basic appraisal.)

Gear:

  • COGHAZ: Obviously, she's not going to carry too many of these around.
  • Colt M1911 (Light)
  • A legal pad and a pen… somewhere.

Possessions:

Things your character has at home or their base of operations.

Personal History:

Elizabeth Marie Geier was born December 8, 1958 to a well off family in Huntsville, Alabama. Her father is a respected engineer at NASA, and her mother busies herself with "society bullshit." Lizzy never felt like this life was for her, but didn't know anything else. She studied dance and art, like a good girl. She went to her mother' alma mater, Agnes Scott College, in the Fall of 1977, with the expectation she would find a husband. This did not happen. Oh sure, she hung out with the boys from Georgia Tech, but it was with the outcasts. They staged protests, drinking when it suited them, and dabbling in drug culture to a soundtrack of angry punk music. She lopped off her hair, and dyed it jet black when the blue kool-aid color didn't take like she wanted it to. Eventually, somebody found a cognitohazard that made you think there were bubbles everywhere. It was the most fun they had ever had, and they wanted more. Lizzy tracked down the art student who gave her the innocuous piece of folded up paper, wanting whatever she could find. And that's how Are We Cool Yet found her. She was already planning to stay summers to graduate early, her college fund more than covered this and her desire to stay out of stuffy old Alabama. Her new friends brought her into their lucrative "project," creating memes and coghazs using scraps of information from the geeks at Tech and their own imagination. It started off with some relatively harmless fun, party tricks and silly jokes taken to an extreme, but grew into somewhat effective study aids and even intoxicants. Lizzy managed to stay out of any serious trouble until her graduation in Spring of 1980, with her Bachelor's in Studio Art. She genuinely enjoyed her normal art life, making shock pieces and protest art. She even made a name for herself, despite the negative press ("No such thing as bad publicity" became her motto.) But she didn't leave AWCY behind her. She and her co-conspirators got themselves on a watchlist for using anomalous means to influence local politicians. But it wasn't the Foundation that swooped in and carried everybody off after the governor went rogue; it was the UIU. One detainment later, they found some kind of obscure charge to keep her in prison. Or she could take a deal with the Foundation, and make it all go away.

Miscellaneous:

She wasn't even involved with the governor thing.
