Character Information


Cassidy is a well-endowed woman who stands nearly 6 ft tall. Though she is muscular and has an athletic build, she maintains a feminine figure. Her fiery red hair falls has grown out some since she left the marines and is kept tied back most of the time, tied-back hair being a more practical choice for running. Her cold blue eyes almost seem to glow in the dark which gives her an intense, piercing stare. Lightly colored freckles dot her face, and go in a rough line pattern across the bridge of her nose. Her pale white skin burns easily in the sun, and her hands are calloused from handling a rifle nearly every day.

"Bannerette" is a boisterous and theatrical person with strong principles that guide her every action. While not on the job proper (i.e. when not in a meeting directly related to or executing the plan that was made, she knows better than to be unprofessional in front of a Johnson), she is very theatrical and energetic; Often she will get excited or start playing with equipment like night vision goggles, or other non-weaponry, and has even modified some of her gear cosmetically to have a "cooler" medieval theme. Despite the more traditionally masculine aspects of her character, she is fairly girly; A room with pink walls and medieval/fantasy themed plush toys on shelves, cutesy stickers on her commlink case, a love of dresses she wishes she could afford. However, her demeanor changes while on the job. With cool professionalism, she is the picture of laser focus and takes her work seriously; She communicates directly and clearly, refuses to leave a man behind, and finishes any fight she is involved in. Her jovial and expressive demeanor become a stoic mercenary and an ice-cold killer when it's time to go to work.

Cassidy MacRae was born in the city of Chicago, the 5th child of Connor and Francine MacRae. Connor MacRae was a veteran, and the owner of the apartment block in which they lived. Her mother, Francine, was a nurse at the local VA hospital at which Cassidy would often volunteer. Due to hard times for the family, the financial burden of having her 4 older siblings going to local university, and her younger brother falling ill Cassidy decided to enlist with the UCAS marines ( a decision that made her father very proud). However, just 2 months after her training had completed, a mega-hive of insect spirits erupted in her home city; Cassidy was among the forward elements of the military response to the bug city incident, which claim the lives of her entire family and everyone else she ever knew. Following a period of light duty, and narrowly avoiding a section 8, Cassidy would go on to serve for a full 28 years, with an extended assignment on the NAN border following a brief stint in the Desert Wars. High tensions with NAN forces on the border resulted in a skirmish in early 2082; There were several fatalities on both sides, and Cassidy herself was wounded in the engagement. She was privately commended for her part in preventing further escalation of the incident. However, despite her rapid recovery, Cassidy was given a medical discharge due to political concerns over the incident. Her sister-in-arms and superior officer Major Paige Jenkins, also at the incident and reassigned to the logistics office in Seattle, helped Cassidy secure a place to live nearby. Out in the cold with no benefits, scant few connections, and naught but some assorted gear it wasn't long before Cassidy turned to the shadows through a a distant relative of her friend. Leaving behind what little she had left of her old life, Cassidy takes her first steps into a dangerous new world intent on building a new life.
