Character Name: Elizabeth Jensen

Character Age: 26

Character Description: A somewhat unassuming looking lady clad in baggy Roving Trader clothing, with a baseball cap atop their head. Curly blonde hair and blue eyes. No specific accent.

Requested Items (List all, if any):

Roving Trader Gear
A baseball cap, and roving trader gear. Takes the form of a comfy vest with many pouches to store things in. Has a hidden compartment sewn into the inside enough to carry something as large as a single pistol magazine, for instance. The compartment is well hidden among the many, more obvious pouches, and generally won't be found unless you know to look for it, or are literally ripping the vest apart.


.44 Magnum Revolver
Being that this is a .44 magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I Feel Lucky?


Pip-Boy 2000
A old, prone-to-fuckyness handheld device. Has the following features:

- Internal storage, enough to store a fair amount of text and video data uploaded to it.
- Mapping system that auto-maps out areas it's been in
- Calculator
- Simple games of Pong, Breakout, and Asteroids


Utility Knife
A knife meant for cutting rope, people, and whatever uses one may have for a sharp implement.


Legion Trade Papers
Some form of official document or token that proves that the holder has paid their allotted tribute to Caesar. When the Legion was at its full strength, it was shown to officials and representatives in Legion-controlled lands to confirm the trader has paid their dues and is free to sell crap. Now it's more of a sign of past trade-history in those lands.


Toolset
A belt of common tools (screwdriver, hammer, wrench, some wire, etc) that are suited for common repair tasks, as well as taking apart and assembling together ballistic weapons.


Lockpicking Set
A small set of lockpicking tools, a little bit above your standard bobby pin.


Starting Money
An amount of money determined fair by staff, to be used to buy things, hire guards, and pay for missions.

Starting Stock
A selection of general-goods items (weapons, food, armor, misc items) determined fair by staff, to be sold to people.



Requested Skills:


Mechanic Skills
Able to perform moderate mechanical, robotic, and electrical work. Enough to "get stuff done" on your day by day cases, but always beat out knowledge-wise by someone who's had more time to study, or specializes in one of those fields.


Lockpicking Skills
Capable of using the set of lockpicks to break into turnkey locks, given time.

Character Backstory (Or why you have the gear/skills, the more you ask the more should be provided):


Elizabeth Jensen was born in Arizona in 2256, which would be a year after the Caesar's Legion Capital of Flagstaff was christened. As such, living in a community about two days trip away from the capital was a bit rough at first, as the Legion was reenforcing the Legion and cleansing all the hostile groups around it;. Elizabeth's first actual experience of the Legion was observing a Decanus-lead squad of Legionaries slaughtering the raider group that had been troubling her town for months, effortlessly. This would leave a lasting impression on Lizzie: both of the Legion's brutal nature.. and the cold effectiveness of its methods.

Her mother was a caravan guard on her father's traveling trade caravan, which bustled under the rapidly expanding economy. Due to the nature of the job, she had to come along on these journeys. When she was old enough, Elizabeth would often find herself very.. bored during layovers and other interruptions along the journey, being too young to sit and pass around a booze bottle. Her father occupied her by giving her small projects to work on - giving her an old alarm clock to restore to working condition, passing over a set of picks and a detached doorknob with lock to fiddle with, etc etc. In essence, it kept her quiet and busy, and also helped her build up her mechanical skills.

Once she was around early adulthood and the years preceding, she was given the task of cleaning and scavenging from broken and damaged guns, a bit of a side-hustle her father would offer alongside their trade goods, which built upon what she had already known about mechanics. She'd read a few books on such things, but they often bored her, and thusly her knowledge is almost entirely from experience, and not "book learning".


Things were good, until the fall of the Legion as a proper organization meant that things had rapidly become hectic, and her aging parents were not able to keep up with things. Her father's caravan was at the risk of collapse, almost overnight, from loss of goods and profits. He ultimately sold it to the Crimson Caravan Company for a lukewarm price. Elizabeth however did not join on with Crimson, instead taking her share of the money to found her own, smaller trade company. She had some connections which allowed her to get a decent starting stock and some trade routes, but the times of turmoil had ultimately meant that she'd need to build everything from the ground up again with little outside help....


Do you understand that your items/authorizations can be taken away at any time, should it be found that you had abused or misused the authorization in any way?: Aye

I like a player-run trader and I am happy to see you applying for one, the .44 Magnum is fine with me, just know that even though you are a trader you still have the same rules for PK just as any other player.

Before I accept this, this is really the only thing I don't understand, is how did you get the Pip-Boy 2000?

By trading. A sort of electronic notekeeper with calculator is invaluable to someone who needs to be easily able to keep track of their finances and documentation without carrying around folders of easily lost and destroyed papers.

A Pip-Boy 2000 would not be /as/ rare to find as the 3000 or other feature-rich devices of the same model line, and judging by the 'bulky yet reliable' features of most Robco items, finding one in poor quality and restoring it to acceptable quality with some replacement parts is not outside of the realm of possibility for someone who moves around a lot.

Alright, seems fine to me. This application is accepted.
