Position: Biological Anomaly Researcher
Demeanor: Mildly ignorant, tends to space out.
Nature: Pretty good conversation partner, if anyone bothers to try at all.
Description: Caucasian female, mid-twenties. Black, long hair. Wears whatever is appropriate for her job, usually a lab coat, gloves, and a gas mask. Light acid burns on her right forearm.

- Lets See What Makes It Tick, and Breath: 4. Many autopsies and clean-ups on anomalous copses later, Janet is now particularly good at cutting things up and roughly knowing how it works. At least, what she assumes it does, anyway. (+3 SCIENCE during autopsies, but does not notice if it fails.)
- Tis But A Flesh Rot: 2. While still a squishy human, one stops caring too much about injuries if you know pain is merely neurons panicking at corrosive acid on your arm. Are those muscle ligaments I see? (+2 MDEF against pain or injury. Does not stop physical injuries from actually occurring.)
- Stop Moving Your Appendage, It Won't Hurt: 4. Somewhat understands how organic beings work at a glance, irregardless of how unearthly it looks. It it grabs things, it is an arm. Or it could be a leg, but they work the same way, anyway. If it has a chainsaw at the end, well, at least it is moving again. (+3 MED when healing anomalous creatures or organs. Recovery might not be full.)
- Hit It In The Glowing Part: 2. Can somewhat tell where or how an anomalous creature is weakest. (+2 PERCEPTION when against biological anomalies when identifying weakness.)

- .45 ACP magazines
- Hunting Knife
- Empty glass vials
- A folded bulk bag
- A leather rucksack
- Vials of workplace-safe, approved samples of various anomalies.
- A preserved tentacle-like appendage. Surprisingly tough, painful when hit by it.

- Heavy-Duty bleach, for accidents.
- Stationary, not all are functional.
Janet Stella Hansen was born in 1931 in Iowa. She lived a relatively uneventful life until the age of 17, when a particular incident involving several worshipers of an unknown religion occurred. While details of the event is still unclear, the samples recovered from the area indicated organisms similar to humans microscopically, but differed heavily in macroscopic form.
Up till this day, no one is quite sure what occurred that day. The few maddened survivors suffered symptoms of severe arsenic poisoning, dying in shrieks of pain days later. Hansen was in a closed off, ventilated area during that period, unknowingly avoiding death. What happened afterwards is mostly unknown, but it left Hansen with minor acid burns, as well as a few bruises and cuts.
Hansen escaped the area before it was lock-downed, and subsequently avoided amnestics treatment, as well as Foundation detection. She attributed her injuries to a lab accident, ultimately healing through most of her wounds.
Years later, Hansen began her study on human biology, and eventually started research on a sample she obtained and preserved from the incident. Before she could publish her results, the Foundation narrowly blocked it from publication and offered her a position in the research of biological anomalies, due to her rare experience with an anomaly that was barely understood at that time. She snapped up the offer without a second thought.
- Right arm is slightly shaky.
