Susan Gray (Mother): DECEASED Silas Gray (Father): ALIVE
Bobbi Gray was born on a desert frontier planet as the only child of a successful sheriff. Being from a well respected family in the area, her father Silas was worried that his daughter would grow up as a spoiled diva, but it did not take long for his worries to be put to rest. Instead Bobbi began to idolize her father, seeing him as a hero of justice rather than just a sheriff, and thus began trying to emulate him. She would often play rough with the other kids in town, and act as the whistle blower if any of them tried to break the rules or disobey instructions. This led to mixed opinions about her among her age group, but she did not seem for care since she saw herself as a hero of justice just like her father.
As she got older, Bobbi continued to play the role of sheriff in her own way, which often meant picking fights with bullies and even some adults on occasion. It was from one of these fights that she ended up getting a bad cut on her chin which left a lasting scar. While Silas tried to respect his daughter's drive to do things her own way, he ended up stepping in to break up her fights on more than one occasion, mostly at the behest of his wife who would have preferred Bobbi wearing dresses rather than denim. In time they were able to rein Bobbi in, even getting her to dress up for the occasional formal, and for the most part keep her from picking more fights; though she still acted as a “Voice of the Law” for her peers.
When Bobbi was in the latter half of her teenage years she lost her mother to a seasonal illness that had swept into town. While she was heartbroken, she also saw her father cry for the first, and last, time that she could remember. In a way, after years of seeing him as the stern face of the law, this humanized him for her, and in her mind he was instead the man who upheld the law; though she would always see him as her Hero of Justice.
After a couple years more passed, Bobbi could see that Silas still was not quite the same as he was before, and was not surprised to hear him suggest that he pull up stakes once she was old enough to start out on her own. He was someone who thrived in day to day challenges, and while the town they lived in now had started out busy enough for him it had quieted down to just an occasional business dispute. After finding out that he had even found a potential new frontier world to work on, she sat down and considered what she would do herself.
Then after much deliberation she approached Silas and told him her plan. She would join the military and request a station on Francia, the same world Silas was gunning for. Then, once Silas brought justice to that frontier as well he could take over as Marshall for Francia, at which point Bobbi could take over as the new sheriff after him. This plan elicited one of the heartiest laughs Bobbi had even gotten from Silas, but also one of the warmest smiles.
So, a little while later, once all their accounts were settled and a new sheriff was selected for the town, the Gray family packed up and headed out of town. Silas was going to tour a couple of precincts on his way and do a bit of survival training for the new climate he was heading to, while Bobbi went off to Basic to become a marine and hopefully specialize in demolitions.
Due to a love of roughhousing while growing up Bobbi learned basic fighting skills that she would go on to hone as she got older. Once she enlisted she received further training in more advanced combat methods, although she is still more than happy to stick to a basic fistfight if the other person looks like they could really use a good jab.
Much in the same way that Bobbi learned to fight, much of her early life was spent running around and working under a blazing prairie desert sun. As such she is proud of her fit physique and good stamina. Basic training also saw to improving her physical abilities as well.
Being raised in a harsh environment means that caution and preparation come as a second nature. If Bobbi was told that she needed to cross a desert waste, she could be packed and ready to go within an hour. For an arid prairie environment that is. She is excited to test her survival skills in a polar environment next.
After completing Basic training, Bobbi continued on to receive specialized training in demolitions. While some thought that an assault role would have fit her better, she went on to express that she would rather handle the explosives than trust another person to do it instead.
Bobbi grew up being taught that it is best to either get to where you are going, or do what you need to do, with out relying too heavily on technology and machines. She would walk when it was reasonable, and enjoyed racing others to the destination. Over the years she has built up good cardio.
After her mother passed away, Bobbi had to be the one to do many of the chores around the house due to her father's busy schedule. She has an understanding of basic cooking recipes, and from living in the desert she became very good at cleaning up dust and dirt.
