Melissa Wright

Postby Releasing » 19 Oct 2015, 03:40

Full name: Melissa Wright.

Nickname(s): Mel, Melly/Mellie, Bright.

Age: 25.

Birth date: October 27th.

Gender: Female.

Position: Doctor, CMO, Squad Medic. Newly acquired roles: Standard, Squad Lead, Squad Specialist.

Notable traits: Has dyed black hair with slight brown roots.
A slight control freak in some situations, she needs things to be done her way.
Friendly, helpful, and fast at best.
Moody, angry, and sarcastic at worst.
Prefers to be called Mel.
AN ABSOLUTE BITCH TO DAYTON MANN

Persona: Melissa likes to consider herself as helpful and useful, wishing to assist others in any way possible. Friendly towards most, she likes to make new acquaintances and friends in every type of situation. In some positions, her feelings and emotions (specifically anger) get ahead of her and she lashes out. Those incidents are rare and isolated, though (she likes to believe).
Her personality changes according to whoever she’s with at the time. She can go from snarky to worried mother-hen in a matter of seconds.

History: Melissa came from, surprisingly, quite a normal family. She grew up in a small, unremarkable colony planet. Her parents, Jasper and Maria Wright, raised her with as much love and care as a child could receive. Jasper, a military man, was often off on military business for extended periods of time, which the details of were never explained to Mel, leaving Maria and Melissa to themselves and become better acquainted. Maria was the colony’s only doctor, so Melissa was witness to a number of grueling injuries and medical procedures since she was a child.

Growing up, Maria taught Melissa all she could about everything medical, letting her observe the tricky surgeries and administer small treatments to the non-critical patients. When Jasper was at home, he taught her how to fire a gun properly, at least a handgun. Melissa shot countless bottles as a child. Melissa wasn’t sure which parent she loved spending time with more, she valued each of their lessons equally. In the other aspects, she attended school as normal, achieving above average in most every course. She took an exceptional liking to the health and anatomy classes, as expected.

After graduating high school, she pursued a career in the medical field as a surgeon. Taking her studies seriously and memorizing the material, she quickly became one of most well-known and practiced medical doctors in the field. From the previous knowledge her mother passed onto her and her affinity for the medical career, she spent the rest of her years up until age twenty-three working as an adept hospital surgeon.

At age twenty-three, she decided to follow her father’s path in life and enlist in the USCMC. She was deployed on the USS Sulaco as a doctor/squad medic, and has been stationed there ever since.

Melissa lost her right arm in an explosion accident. It occurred on a small mining planet that was being harassed by raiders. Deploying as a combat medic on the second wave of reinforcements, she followed her squad as they tore through countless raiders, saving what friends she could and killing when necessary. It was a brutal op. As soon as they reached a break in the fighting and were allowed to rest, a raider charged into the circle that was Melissa’s squad, C4 strapped to his chest. Shielding her major body parts, she pushed whom she could out of the way and lost her right arm in the process. Four marines, her friends, lost their life. Her arm was a small price to pay.

Relations:
► Show Spoiler


Basic appearance: Melissa has dull, leaf-shade green eyes and a slightly hooked nose. Her mouth is pursed in a relaxed smile at almost all times, wishing to keep up the appearance of being friendly and approachable. She walks with her arms hanging nonchalantly at her sides, her sway being casual at most.
Her hair is a dark black, and swept effortlessly over one shoulder. It feels dry to the touch, from mismanagement. Her bangs slightly go over her left eye, having to be pushed back with her hand every so often, giving it a nice buff. Naturally straight, with a few slight waves that never cease to annoy Melissa.
She stands at a solid 5’6”, with long proportions. A slender and lithe frame. She has slightly tanned skin, with a few faint scars sprinkled over her left arm which usually isn’t shown to the public eye. Her prosthetic right arm has a few dents and scratches, but still looks to be in working condition. Her human hand is long and thin, with skeletal-like fingers.

Likes: Surgery, helping, compliments, signs of gratitude, coffee, competence, sarcastic conversation.

Dislikes: Fighting, weapons, dyeing hair, stubbornness, self-sacrifice, rude marines, ungrateful attitudes.

Strengths: Is very skilled in the medical profession, knows her way around an operating table and a chem lab. Takes pride in these.
Works hard and efficiently when given a specific task, she refuses to let someone down due to her own incompetence or laziness.

Weaknesses: FIGHTING. She’s not very good at shooting a gun, so she tends to stay up in the nice (sometimes clean) medbay.
Snaps /very/ easily.

Other Info: dat relations list length tho
Also, the history is supposed to be non-spectacular for those who say ‘it’s a bit bland’. Not everyone has an action-packed and interesting backstory.

Good backstory, appropriate lore.

Not a bad player and rather known, as well.

+1 from me.
