Julia VothOverall appearance:
Jill is a fairly average woman, standing upright at five feet and five inches. With long dark brown hair, she normally ties it up in a loose ponytail, bangs falling in front, or she'll just wake up and brush it out, letting it hang down. She has a medium-light tan complexion that's complemented with a pair of bright teal eyes. Jill's normal attire consists of a pair of khaki colored fitted pants, a light blue blouse, and always a pair of white running shoes. There's only ever been one tattoo known on her body which is a sword through the Greek letter Delta inked on her left shoulder, though she's never explained it's meaning.
"Ooh, that's rude. Is that the sort of man I am now? Am I rude? Rude and not ginger!"Special abilities:
Being a human, Jill has no inhuman abilities. However, due to USMC and Delta Force training, she has amazing marksmanship, a skilled hand in demolitions, breaching, and CQB along with medical training and communications to other teams and vehicles/aircraft.Overall personality:
Jill is a very laid-back type of person, both on and off of the clock, and always easy-going with her colleagues. Always seen with a smile on her face or a laugh filling the room, she's definitely one of the more open and friendlier body within the group. Though she's usually got a joke or a jest, it's often times mistaken for being rude or insulting by those who have yet to get her know her. She also considers herself to be one of the guys having been training with the men for years and creating close friends within the U.N.I.T., but it doesn't mean she's still not emotionally vulnerable...
Being the daughter of a U.N.I.T. Veteran Agent, and with it having to uphold the Kaye family name, it's also a heavy weight on her shoulders. While she can be the sarcastic, lively, comic relief, she has a serious side in which she pulls out while on an assignment or when she's in a particularly sour mood. She's determined, stubborn, and emotionally-hardened when it comes to pleasing her father and proving that she can carry out their family name in the U.N.I.T. for years to come. Given this, most mentions of her family or work ethic can cause her to flip moods at the drop of a dime, becoming a rather unpleasant person.
Same with her flaws. While she's an extremely skilled soldier, she's hardly experienced in social skills or others. She doesn't necessarily understand how to hold close friends or value them. Her colleagues are only lives to be wasted in the long war of life. When it comes to assignments, she's always looking to get the job done and get to bottom of the problem, no matter who or what gets in her way. She's often times reckless with the need to complete her orders by any means necessary, even to the point where casualties may be a result, and can sometimes be blindsided by her orders rather than doing what's right or convenient. Her teammates do mean a lot to her as they are a team, but in the long run, don't expect to become buddy-buddy afterwards.
Another flaw she tends to publicly show, is her need to be perfect. She doesn't care much about her physical appearance or money, but rather being the perfect soldier and agent. Relatively tying in with the above, she believes following orders and being a leader is what makes the perfect soldier. Training is a huge part of her life while in the U.N.I.T. as Jill is always quick to head to the firing range or gym to keep her skills in top performance. Her life goal gets in the way of her emotional and physical desires, and while part of her longs for a family, the other part only wishes to make her Uncle proud.
"Hey, what if they all become psychotic?"History:
Born and raised in South Boston, Jill was birthed by Irish mother, Grace McGrath, and American father, Walter Robertson. The three had a relatively normal life up until Jill turned five, where her mother had been killed by...something. Something inhuman. For years, her father never spoke of that night or what he saw and he began to find solace in drinking heavily, which left Jill to care for herself. However, her uncle found it unsuitable for her to continue leaving with her father and at the age of six, Jill moved in with her Uncle Kaye. The Marine wasn't used to raising children of his own, though he showed her what love he could while attending work at the U.N.I.T., and often times treated her as a private in his platoon. With age, she began to enjoy his teachings of discipline, responsibility, courage, and leadership, enjoying the stories of his time in the USMC. At the age of 12, Jill promised her Uncle that she would follow in his foot steps one day.
Out of high school with high grades, the first step was enlisting. Jill eagerly signed herself over to the Marines and spent a hard 13 weeks training before seeing a post in the base. Delta Force recruits wanted. Taking the chance, she pushed herself through interviews, PT, and even more tough work before she got the letter that made her feel butterflies. Within the next week, she was learning to perfect marksmanship, CQB, demolitions, and breaching. She spent several years within the Force taking down drug busts and terrorist events. It wasn't until she was contacted by an organization known as the U.N.I.T. that she realized what she was meant to do in life.
Having been given word to them by her Uncle, she was transferred into the U.N.I.T. located in the United Kingdom by age 26 and has been an asset into the organization for a little over four years since her Delta Force days. Yet, even now as she follows the path of her Uncle, it's a heavy burden and one she must keep living up to or die trying.
