Physical Description

  • Height: 5ft (60 Inches)
  • Mass: 110bs

Build and Skin Color:

Short, but not stout, Minnie has a pear shape via her bones. her legs are larger than her arms, her hips are larger than her shoulders. Next to an average person, Minnie seems obviously small because of her stature and weight, cemented with her short stature, relatively flat chest and a smaller rib cage, making it easy for her to be dwarfed by even those of her own gender.

Minnie's skin is a lightly tanned almond color, with a clear and smooth complexion. She has no notable marks, scars, or blemishes.

Eyes and Facial Features: Minnie's eyes are a set of unblinking cybernetics that are overlain by an almost translucent circuitry pattern that glow ever so slightly with light-blue irises. She has an unscarred and unblemished face. with a round, soft jaw line. and rounded cheek bones that show her youth remarkably well.

As of YE 40 She has small, Scattered scars across her chest and right shoulder from shrapnel.

Hair Color and Style: Minnie has long, straight, shoulder length; Ashe Brown hair that she usually keeps tied behind her in a bun, but on occasion leaves untied when shes relaxing.

Distinguishing Features:

  • Eyes: Minnie has two blue, piercing, cybernetic eyes. That emit a soft, slightly noticeable glow in low-light and that can enhance her vision well beyond normal to see further and in greater detail. As well as allow her to remote access certain equipment as of YE 40, Her eyes each contain a single charge laser installed in the back of the lens that when fired drain all battery charge to her eyes temporarily blinding her as a trade-off for their use.
  • Head: As of late YE 39 Minnie has had a brain spider installed during the New Bernese campaign. Alongside this her hair has been changed to replace each individual hair shaft and folical with a strong fire retardant fiber optic cables as thin as her normal hair that give off a soft cascading stripes that glow of color that can brighten considerably depending on her current mood that can be remotely muted by her in any situation requiring stealth.
  • Arm: As of late YE 39 Minnie has had her dominant (Right) arm replaced at the shoulder joint with a cybernetic. It is made from supporting a series of interleaved synthetic muscle bundles and composite bones to mimic natural range of movement and offers her considerably more strength output than her flesh and blood counterpart. The arm itself connects to a ball/joint mechanism installed into her shoulder joint and can be removed by hand. The arm itself is covered in a flexible tactile-sensory “skin” that looks like her own almond color except around the joints, Seams, And break-Lines. Over the skin of the upper arm Minnie has a heraldic tattoo of the 309th's NSMC star with Whooper the friendly cobra emblazoned over the center.
  • Hand: The hand of Minnie's cybernetic arm contains five (one for each finger) blades that fold into the last third of each digit when not in use. The blades are made from durandium and are curved almost like claws to cut or grip as needed. Each Blade is an inch long and 1/8th of an inch wide. As of YE:41, Minnie has had left left arm replaced with a copy of her mentors cybernetic arms that disperse hypolathe medical nanites from the fingertips and contain a defibrillator function in the palm that can also work to stun or incapacitate if used the wrong/right way.

Personality

Minnie is an extroverted, and shy person, She will talk your ears off out of sheer nervousness. You would never guess by first meetings alone that she is probably absolutely unprepared to meet someone. The more comfortable she gets with someone, the less she will go off on tangents and ramble. It's almost instinctive that she talk as much as humanly possible in order to fill an awkward silence that might not even happen. Peculiar and talkative, and kinda happy at the same time and she can't fully hide it whether she likes it or not, She is prone to bouts of frustration that she has a hard time controlling, and is easier to fluster than she lets on.

As of her time on new-bernese she has discovered she has an aversion to killing, But this does not stop her from engaging in combat.

History

A privileged only child growing up in one of the many the residentials of Funky City, Minnie received the best schooling, tutoring and extracurricular education her parents could provide. The benefits of coming from a semi-successful line of doctors, the handed-down profession of her father and his father before him. (Her mother is a pharmacologist.). Groomed to carry on this line of work, working as an assistant in her parents clinic, observing and helping in kind, Minnie quickly developed an early interest and experience in the medical arts.

Throughout her teenage years, Minnie developed a fascination towards cybernetics, and body augmentation in general. The inner workings of grafting together man and machine fascinated her, and bordered on technophilia at times. Her parents encouraged anything that encouraged her study into any medical field, Unknowingly fueling what was less than an interest into the particular field, and more of an obsession.

Minnie's room quickly filled with posters of Nepleslian propaganda posters Depicting muscular and shirtless Nepleslian Marines With Cybernetic eyes, And large augmented arms, Books of various Cybernetic and their Applications, And anything she could get her hands on to surround herself in her “hobby”.

By the time Minnie reached her twenties, Minnie's parents had decided she had studied and observed enough, and that it was time for their now, well of age, daughter and heir to their clinic to strike out on her own. Minnie's father, Urged her to go to school and license herself as a civilian doctor. Minnie's Mother, taking Minnie's fascination with cybernetics in mind, suggested Minnie take a career as a Marine Doctor, Getting placed as a ships doctor or triage surgeon allowing her to observe and participate first hand in the field she had become so fascinated by.

Weeks later, A green uniformed recruiter was more than willing to take her signature and send her on the path of a Marine Doctor in the NSMC.

New Bernese Offensive (YE:38-41)

Minnie would spend her first deployment out of training on the frontier world of New Bernese. Where the NSMC 309th Armored Infantry "Ruthless Riders", Her designated unit would deploy planetside to help fend off the forces of the New Bernese Red Rebellion (BRR), And the Fatneck pirate group that both threatened to break the fragile peace of the planet and overwhelm its corporately funded militias under the command of one Governess Ngozi Abraham.

Finding herself evicted of the rear-line role of trauma surgeon, Minnie would end up in the fray fighting on the frontlines with the combat rated members of the 309th and the other support personnel where pushed into the fight to break the deadlock. Here she would meet her future battle-buddy, protector, and best friend. The kind and gentle giant Fang Yin Zhou. As well as the 309th cook Fergus Mallan.

She would continue to fight with the 309th for several years against the reds and fatnecks. Meeting such characters as the kind and nurturing Autumn Wilde. Her future mentor and executive officer Chiaki Kokuten, The shy antisocial cat-lover Ella Duville, The kind big-sister Fredrica "Fitz" Wallace and the elfen eared Joe "Radar" Larson.

Her stint in the 309th would go rather without considerable injury as she played soldier by day, And surgeon by night until a routine operation with no expectation of conflict ended up with her XO, Lieutenant Chiaki. Stepping on a landmine and severely wounding both himself and Minnie alerted a group of local fatneck pirates that quickly began hunting the two down.

Heavily concussed, loosing blood quickly, and nearing death. And with a long twisted piece of shrapnel embedded in her shoulder, Minnie would hide her equally dying superior and attempt to lead the Fatnecks away or signal help. On the very verge of death the two where saved by the arrival of Fang in the units Aggressor power armor who after a short firefight was able to extract the two to relative safety, Where lifesaving emergency surgery saved all but chiaki's legs and minnie's right arm at the shoulder. Both injuries where replaced by minnie shortly after…

Minnie would depart from new-bernese and the 309th in mid-YE 41 when the conflict began to come to a close after a series of considerable DiON victories would drive the reds to the brink…

Minnie was also taught the basics in standard riflemanship and the use of sidearms and equipment.

Minnie is also trained in the use and operation of Nepleslian power armors,

Strategy

Minnie has learned about combat tactics and the differences between power armor and light infantry operations. They are also taught about combined arms operations, utilizing Navy and Marine airborne assets to support their own operations. They also learn how to plan and execute various non-standard operations such as commando raids, reconnaissance, urban, jungle, desert & arctic warfare as well as star ship boarding operations.

Survival

Nepleslian Marines are expected to know how to survive and live off the land without resupply. Their fourth month of training is spent teaching them the skills to recognize edible plants and animals, to catch and prepare said animals, and how to navigate without electronics or a map. Marines are also taught how to make a fire without any of the usual means as well as to survive in cold weather without a fire.

Fighting and Physical

Or Fightin’ and Diein’, Marines such as this one are trained to stay fit, to shoot weapons, and to punch someone’s lights out if need be. This includes how to set up a workout regimen by devoting at least an hour a day to physical fitness, how to set up and clean workout equipment, and how to properly cycle through workout types to get a full body workout. Marines who only ever work out their arms are punished! Marines are trained to fire accurately, and in the same direction as other marines, on the HHG ‘High Hybrid Gun’, the Styrling Silver Special .45 Caliber, and the M2 Rifle. Marines are taught how to strip down, clean, and put these weapons back together. Finally, marines are taught the basics of hand to hand combat in the form of nepleslian_marine_self-defense_training.

Specialty: Marine Medic

Marine medics are taught more than simple battlefield first aid. As the ability to stop lethal damage increased in potency, so did the weapons technology to bypass such defenses; combat medics are a necessary part of any infantry force, in order to stabilize injuries inflicted to marines in combat. They are essentially doctors who know how to kill just as well as how to heal. Medics are taught about the various physiology of the races within the SMDIoN, such as Nepleslians, ID-SOLs, and more recently Jiyuuians. They must also be fully trained in the use of all field and hospital equipment. Training takes place at the Nepleslia Prime Medical School after completion of Basic Training. It is a six month long course.

This training includes:

  • How to perform triage
  • How to identify and treat various forms of combat wounds
  • How to identify and treat various forms of diseases
  • How to effectively quarantine infected personnel
  • How to distinguish between different races' physiology
  • How to view medical data from a power armor
  • How to use a NAM NCS Hypolathe
  • How to maintain cybernetic implants
  • How to retrieve NAM Medtech - Cerebral Chip recordings
  • How to treat trauma
  • How to read and update personnel medical records

Specialty: Marine Doctor

Those medics who decide to specialise further in taking care of the fleshy bits of Marines can return to the Nepleslia Prime Medical School for a course that will license them as a Doctor. These Marines are generally the ones who oversee a ship's medbay alongside their Naval counterparts, and know their way around basic medical diagnostics to keep marines going when they get sick. They also accompany Marines on combat deployments, though are usually kept farther back to allow Marine medics to transport wounded to them. In this role, they set up field hospitals and aid stations. Their extra knowledge and specialist equipment gives them the capability to resurrect dead Marines using their cerebral chips. They tend to oversee cybernetics implants as well as any medical attention needed beyond battlefield medicine.

These Marines attend the course for a full year and come out as licensed doctors. As such, they are allowed the MD suffix to their names. They are recognized by the Nepleslian Medical Association.
