Build and Skin Color: After training in the military her body has become much more toned and muscular than what it was before. Her skin is an olive colour, and tends to tan very well even after a few hours in the sun.
Eyes and Facial Features: Her eyes are green, she has light freckling across her face, and she has a strong jaw with hawkish features.
Ears: The only thing striking about her ears were perhaps being the several small indents that indicated where she used to have piercings. Beyond that they're quite average.
Hair Color and Style: She wears her brown hair in a layered bob.
Distinguishing Features: She has a scar on her left eyebrow from that time she head-butted an attack dog right the mouth. She also has a fake tooth to replace the molar she lost from her days as a gang thug.
Personality: Outgoing and curious, Rana comes off as a little brainless at first, until you get to know her. She is otherwise good-natured and friendly, fairly focused, and perhaps a little self-conscious. But she retains a kind, motherly side as well, always keen on caring for others before looking after herself. Otherwise Rana is not against a few crude jests, and she has a rather bad habit of pointing out the obvious.
As a member of a large, busy family, Rana has domesticity down to an art form. She cooks, she cleans, she mends, she handles the paperwork and house repairs, and not only does she know when you're sleeping, she knows when you're awake, too. And she knows if you've been bad or good, so be good for… well, you know how the rest goes.
*Quirks: Likes tinkering with old-fashioned radio, and maintains an odd interest in crystals…
Sagi Kalev, Father (53) Bar Kalev, Mother (??) Raz Kalev, Brother (18) Ran Kalev, Brother (17) Adi Kalev, Sister (15) Sharon Kalev, Sister (13) Eithan Kalev, Brother (12) Angelina Kalev, Sister (10)
Rana was born to a loving couple, both them being retired officers. Her father had been a marine, and her mother a naval officer. The two families both had quite the military history, and of course they expected their children to uphold it. As a youngster, Rana embraced her family heritage and history. Still, she had a happy childhood.
She went to school, and while her brushes with local gang life were harsh, they were at least brief. Her parents' pension and years of service had earned them some safety from that aspect of life. Six younger siblings later, Rana was more than well-trained to look after and protect other people.
As such, she moves on to fulfill her family's time-honoured legacy by joining the military to kick ass and chew bubblegum, preferably at the same time.
Rana is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other characters through headsets, ships, ground vehicles, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. She is fluent in Nepleslian. She can speak and write it correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc. The character is skilled in field communications and is proficient in all rudimentary forms of communication (hand signals, flashing lights, etc).
Rana is familiar with taking care of children and all things neccessary to running a normal household. This includes laundry, cooking, cleaning, learning how to tie a tie, plumbing, killing spiders, and other related tasks.
Over time, Rana has developed a singing voice, and is actually a talented opera and ballad singer. In addition, Rana is not only a trained ballerina, but she has been known to occasionally break out into spontaneous musical numbers.
Rana has received intensive hand-to-hand combat training (primarily focused on disabling and/or killing opponents) and has followed up that knowledge with a rigorous training program. Weapons she is trained in include pistols of all types, knives, grenades (and other forms of explosive weaponry) and rifles of all kinds. She is in excellent physical shape and has considerable endurance. She is also able to pilot land-based power armors, but must rely on the suit’s A.I. to do anything advanced.
After working with her PA and equipment extensively she has become more than apt at repairing most basic military equipment. Though there’s only so much she knows, and when it starts involving motherboards…well beyond suggesting replacing them there’s not much else she can do in that department.
Like all other marines Rana has taken the required courses to gain a rudimentary understanding of tactics. She is able to understand and give out tactical commands and work with her unit to follow those commands efficiently. She knows the importance of teamwork on the battlefield, has been intensively trained in discipline and morale, and is able to recognize the command structure even while under extreme pressure (combat, etc). More so, she is able to recognize ambush points. She knows basic math in order to calculate distances, etc, and can use a tactical map.
Rana knows how to survive in hostile environments. She can build shelters, hunt and forage for food, build a fire, etc. Rana can camouflage herself and is familiar with guerrilla warfare tactics.
