Personal History:

Born to parents Albert and Jane Van Der Linde in Chicago, 1926, Emily was the apple of her parents eye, as her birth was a rather large surprise. She was raised in the family home by her parents and going to a wealthy school in the city, and was taught how to shoot and live off the land by her parents when not in school. When her parents divorced in 1930, she was raised by her father, Albert. While she missed her mother, and felt bad for her father, who was not handling the break up well, she was happy in her life. They were often visited by her older siblings, but she was not allowed to see her mother, for reasons she did not understand until she was older.
In this life, she eventually became involved in the idea of acting, and moved out of the family home in 1948 to pursue an acting career in New York. However, this career moved slowly, with her unable to secure any major roles, and having to work at a diner to support her attempted career. She finally had enough in 1954, when she responded to a Foundation recruitment drive, jumping at the chance for an exciting career.


History, Continued: Emily was in a heavily abusive relationship with a man named Chris Stone for a few years. After he cowed her and put her into hospital multiple times, she was able to escape from him into the Foundation when her brother Seth beat Chris to the point of hospitalization.

  • Update: Emily spent her time at the Foundation trying very hard to move on from this, but found the memories too traumatic to live with. She undertook amnestic treatment, which has been successfully implemented.
    • Update: Emily is now aware of what happened to her, but has not regained the trauma.

Personality: Emily is typically a bubbly, warm and friendly woman, always happy to see you and chat. However, on the flip side of this, she can also have a nasty temper.
Emily is also a very easily shaken person, frightened of doing the wrong thing around those she cares about, and is easily hurt by things, due to a previous relationship.

  • Update: While mostly the same as she has always been, since undertaking amnestic treatment, Emily has become a bolder, hardier person, a result of no longer remembering her trauma.

Appearance (Detailed): Emily is a slender girl, standing at 5'1". She has rather delicate features, but it's easy to tell she is related to Albert. She has gray eyes, and very long blonde hair, which she typically wears in a long braid, reaching down to her hips. She tends to dress in sundresses with coats, preferably with floral patterns. Emily has many scars all over her, given to her by her abusive ex boyfriend Chris. These include…

  • Various jagged scars from glass on her torso. From broken glass.
  • Various lines of puncture wounds, four in a row. From Chris' brass knuckles. Most visible example is located on the back of her neck.
  • Bullet wound on left foot, accidentally self inflicted.
  • Poorly headed rib.
  • Left forearm is crooked, due to a poorly healed break.
  • Scars from a bite on her shoulder/ neck area

Emily loves to sing and dance, and she's pretty good at both.
Her birthday is the 19th of December.
She is afraid of the site guards, the dark, Mister Graves, orbs, owls and bullet ants now.
A bit radical in some of her views, but too shy to voice them.
Enjoys blues music, and has loved what she's heard of rock 'n roll so far. Particularly that Elvis Presley fellow.
Wants to one day move to a farm and start a family.
