APPLICANT EMPLOYER: Myself.
APPLICANT NAME: Miranda Frost
PHOTOGRAPH OF THE APPLICANT (OOC): 5'9" human female, sea grey eyes, shoulder length brown hair. Looks to be in her mid twenties or so. Although it isn't obvious to someone just taking a cursory glance, she is a bit thinner and slightly more pale than average, giving the (somewhat accurate) impression that she isn't really in good health. In her ethereal form, she has the appearance of being made entirely out of something like fog, with about 60% transparency and only a vaguely defined humanoid shape. Almost always wears a long grey-green trench coat with a hood, brown pants, a white long-sleeved shirt, and a pair of brown boots, as these were what she died/was revived in, and therefore anything else will not switch between ethereal and corporeal forms along with her.
APPLICANT PERSONAL HISTORY: I'd really rather not say too much about this, and I don't see why you would need to know considering that this is mercenary work. I can tell you the following: I worked as a hired assassin for a few years, joined an organization known as the IATM and served as a high ranking sniper and mage there for well over 100 years (for reference, I'm 212 years old now. Or at least somewhere around that...), travelled to an alternate universe, died there eventually when my ship was destroyed, was revived as a wraith by the IATM in my home universe, and then decided to leave for my own reasons, ending up in this place. I've been in this universe for five years or so, although I don't know much about it (you mentioned interdimensional operations, so hopefully this won't be too much of a problem). If more information than this is really absolutely necessary for some reason, contact me and I can see about providing a few more details.
APPLICANT QUALIFICATIONS: Served as a sniper and mage for around 137 years in total, on and off, and am fairly proficient in both areas (consistently capable of achieving 0.5" groups at 1km range under ideal conditions, and have practiced extensively in the school of Ruination magic). I am moderately skilled in the use of offensive elemental magic, in particular ice spells and to a lesser extent electrical spells. More specifically, I can create and manipulate shards of magical ice which can be guided, shaped, and used as weapons or other things. Until they melt or are removed, these shards will continually drain thermal energy from whatever they are embedded in, typically resulting in the target freezing at the point of impact and gradually losing heat in the rest of their body. The same effect can also be achieved via physical contact, although this is rarely practical in combat.
Regarding electrical magic, I can form small electrical arcs at short range, which are slightly to moderately effective against biological targets, but can pose a threat to any unshielded machines. Although I can use fire-based abilities, I'm not going to go into detail much on these, as they are too weak to be useful in most cases. Suffice to say I can light a match or something else that's already at least kind of flammable, but not much else. I have some training in close combat, but I don't specialize in this and prefer to stay at range when possible.
As a wraith, I have the ability to shift between an ethereal and corporeal form. In ethereal form, wraiths become intangible, somewhat more difficult to see, and can pass through any solid objects as well as being able to fly at low speed through any medium. However, in this state I am entirely unable to interact with other matter physically, and can only attack with or be harmed by magic (psionic abilities would likely also be capable of harming me in my ethereal form, though I'm not certain seeing as I haven't yet told any powerful psionics to try and kill me). Laser weaponry would probably also cause some damage, although a reduced amount, as I am not completely transparent in this form.
My corporeal form is essentially indistinguishable from that of a normal human, although I should note that due to being a wraith, I am sustained entirely by a finite pool of magic and thus any injuries I suffer in this state would presumably be permanent unless I want to slowly kill myself in order to heal wounds. Normal medical procedures won't do much in the long term, because as soon as I turn ethereal, anything that wasn't with me when I was revived will just fall through me.
As a final note here, I will also mention that I have some experience in piloting air and space vessels. Although I wouldn't consider myself an expert pilot by any means, I can fly a ship without crashing if needed.
APPLICANT PREFERRED EQUIPMENT: Just my own equipment. I carry a scoped, single shot coilgun rifle along with standard ammunition (four inch hypersonic projectile) and a few of each incendiary, explosive, and poisoned rounds (depending on mission length, I may need more ammunition made), as well as a long dagger which rapidly removes heat from anything it remains embedded in. I typically don't use actual armor of any kind, due to concerns of reduced mobility, as well as the fact that the equipment I was revived with is the only thing which will turn ethereal along with me, and thus anything else tends to be inconvenient.
Extra OOC Notes and Stuff:
- The time this character is coming from is about 80(?) years after PKA2, based on my own version of events for the next 200 or so years following World's End in that 'verse. I might explain more on the continuity I made up if it comes up in an IC conversation or something, but for now the only relevant thing is the very brief summary in the personal history section, as well as the following bit: My faction from World's End expanded greatly in the 100 years or so between then and PKA2, and became known as the Institute for the Advancement of Technology and Magic or IATM (yes I know it's a terrible name but I used it in PKA2 and I don't want to retcon now). PKA2 happened, Miranda died after having her ship blown up by the Splitters sometime during when Reckoning was happening. She was revived in the WE 'verse by the IATM, but lots of internal political stuff happened there in the time she was gone. Because of this, the IATM broke apart and largely collapsed shortly after she returned, and Miranda essentially just gave up on the entire universe and left to go to a different one (by this point, interdimensional portals could be created intentionally as opposed to only happening by accident like how she ended up in the Academy).
- Just to be clear, this character is going to be significantly different from how she was at the time of PKA2. The IATM's fall and the perceived betrayal of trust there have resulted in her paranoia reaching almost crippling levels, and she may or may not be going very slightly insane. She tossed herself out of a ship and spent quite literally several years just floating in space in ethereal form after escaping the WE 'verse, as well as having allowed her health to degrade quite a bit before both remembering that the damage would be permanent and managing to care enough to stop. Her application to Kay-Oh! Inc. was more out of boredom than anything else, as she's done virtually nothing for years now. Also, she's very cynical.
- Any injuries suffered in corporeal form are pretty much permanent except maybe in a desperate situation where it's worth severely weakening herself forever to heal a wound. Not sure how clear I was on this point, but the problem is that her human form is essentially made of the same magical energy as her ethereal form, except transmuted into physical matter. Since she can't absorb any kind of normal energy, even just healing at the rate of a normal person would eventually kill her since she has no way of regaining the lost energy short of something like sucking someone's soul from their body (which might actually be viable, except that she doesn't know how to do that). Damage to her ethereal form is also permanent, but the energy loss is spread out evenly, basically just making her weaker overall, and causing exhaustion in corporeal form.
