Once Dead OCT2 Round 1 Part 1Lori woke up early, about half an hour after sunrise. The alarm she had set blared loudly, buzzing twice before she quickly silenced it. She slowly rose, stretching out her arms and legs to help wake herself up, turning on the lamp on the bedside table when she was finished.Once Dead OCT2 Round 1 Part 1 by VariableNature
As she finally got off the bed and headed off to the bathroom to shower and brush her teeth, moving carefully out of the way of the spider webs that her introductory note had warned her about, she couldn’t help but think how boring this hotel was.
When she had talked with VN, she had expected this tournament to be something that would happen quickly. That she would have to get ready to fight for every inch, rely on every single bit of training she had done, all of the strength and endurance she had gained from being in the Army. She wasn’t too fazed by the…uniqueness, to say the least, of some of the other beings she had encountered. Hell, most of them were human or close enough to n

I’m going to state this as plainly as I can for you, Nature.
You are not going to be able to get into the hotel.
Hell, I can’t even get into the hotel, and even if I could I wouldn’t want to. I told you about all the insanity and nonsense that happened with Legs, right? The shit that went down there? And hell, let’s throw in all the other creators that decided that the hotel would be their own personal playground, can you imagine how everything went to hell at light speed?
I have washed my hands of all of that. Veronica wants the hotel now, she can damn well keep it. If I never have to even MENTION it ever again, that would just make me happy.
Hell, it boggles my mind that you actually had the balls to see your character off to the hotel in the first place! From what you told me, she had every right to kick your ass. How you got off so easily, I have no idea, but that’s not the point here.

Amy grunted as she managed to block another blow from Lydia, returning the favor with a tough left jab that left a deep cut on the girl’s face. She shrieked, stumbling back and grasping at her cheek, earning Amy the chance to tear off the bottom of her pant leg and tie a very painful knot around the chunk that Lydia had torn out of her leg. She winced, wondering if it was actually possible to recover from an injury like that. Nearby, Lydia’s legs were spread far apart and the rest of her body was falling towards the ground, her back arched and head angled toward the floor. She was breathing heavily, clearing starting to run out of juice. Amy wasn’t surprised- the damn girl had been running on full blast ever since she ran into her. It was a curse on her part that she hadn’t started wearing down sooner, what with all the speed she was mustering.
But, at this point, the fact that she was weari

Amy Tolson listened carefully to the overhead announcement as she loaded her guns and stared intently at the wall in front of her.
Four. Four competitors left in the tournament. While her enormous web of information stapled and taped to the wall in front of her had significantly decreased over time, as the battles raged on and more and more people found themselves condemned back into the recesses of the Black Box, there should still be plenty of information to give her at least some kind of edge for this round. After all, when it came to assassinations and gathering intel, she was nothing if not thorough.
She rammed the last of the cartridges into her weapons, her handgun to be specific, and placed it onto her person, along with the shotgun that was slung over her shoulder and the throwing hatchets down by her leg. Ten minutes- that wasn’t a lot of time to get an item retrieval assignment done. And certainly

So....this is the character I'm going to be auditioning for the second season of Once Dead OCT. MAJOR MAJOR PROPS to for drawing her for me. Man, this is a character I've been meaning to use for a while in SOMETHING. Here's hoping everyone likes her!
If you have any questions or comments, please let me know and I'll get back to you!
Name: Lori Nedalph
Occupation: Lieutenant Colonel of the Royal Durvandian Army, Head of the 24th Special Assault and Testing Battalion (more colloquially known as the “Blue Tiger Battalion”)
Weight: 141 lbs.
Hair: Black, cut short.
Skin Color: Medium-dark brown
Body Type: Somewhat muscular
Other Notes: Has a tattoo along her right arm of a blue tiger sitting up and roaring, which she received when she first joined the Battalion. It goes from her shoulder to her elbow.
Standard Outfit: “Casual” Military Training uniform, with boots and cap. The top of the uniform, if unbuttoned, reveals a plain white, long-sleeved t-shirt.
Do you have permission to kill this character?: Yes, and I wish you the best of luck. Just make sure she goes down swinging, that’s all I ask.
History: Born to a military family in the Royal Republic of Durvandia, Lori Nedalph joined the Royal Military Academy at age eighteen and, over the four years she studied there, proved herself as one of the rising stars in her class, regularly getting top marks in her classes and rarely performing outside of the top six members of her grade. At her graduation, she was selected, along with her close friend and rival Jackson Katona, to join the high-profile and (in)famous 24th Special Assault and Testing Battalion. The 24th was designed to gather talented and bright members of all branches of the armed forces and be a testing ground for potential weapons that could be more widely used in the future. The R&D people work as designers and builders for the various weapons, while the soldiers themselves are able to demonstrate how effective (or in-effective, more often than not) they would actually be. Many of these weapons are very high-tech and top-secret, and allow the 24th to operate with a level of independence next to unheard of in the rest of the Royal Durvandian Army. As she continued to work in the 24th, she slowly climbed up the ranks of command, eventually receiving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and command of the Battalion, with her second-in-command being Katona.
Personality: A military brat, and a graduate of the Royal Republic of Durvandia’s top Military Academy, Lori has a very healthy respect for authority and order. She is very much a “lawful good” type of person, expecting others to follow the rules and standards, in particular the people she views as her superiors. Lori does her best to try and set such an example for the soldiers under her, however there have been noted (albeit rare) instances of her losing her composure with her rage becoming quite legendary amongst the newer members of the battalion.
Likes: Army, her primary weapon “Inferno” as well as any other types of firearms, her fiancé and soon-to-be step-child, pancakes, her pet ferret Issac
Dislikes: Disorder and insubordination, dark chocolate, extremely windy weather, faulty machinery (especially if there were other, better ways that could have prevented a breakdown)
Primary weapon: GFB-XX7 MiniGun, more colloquially referred to as “Inferno” for its firepower. It comes attached with a shield that is able to be pulled out from underneath the gun, while still attached to the gun proper, in order to protect the shooter holding the weapon. Should she be holding the weapon while in close-quarters, it is possible for her to swing it around like a large, unwieldy club, but due to its size, weight, and potential for weapon damage, she prefers not to do this.
Close Quarters Weaponry: The NY8 (basically a modern-day Beretta M9), and a combat knife, both of which she is very well-trained to handle.
Close Quarters Combat: Close quarters, hand-to-hand combat was one of Lori’s weaker areas, although she makes up for technique with strength.
Great physical strength and endurance: Lori is very strong and makes it a point to stay in great physical condition. She may just be human, but she is more than capable of handling herself in a fight, especially with her punches (carrying around a heavy Minigun works as a great work-out for upper body strength.
Weapons training: She’s been around weapons since she was a child, having been born into a military family, living in army bases as a child, and having served in the Army for years, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. She knows how to handle weapons carefully and properly, as well as how to care for them and repair them, if need be. Granted, the more exotic weapons might take a much longer time to figure out how to use properly, but she can manage.
Leadership and Planning: Rising to being the leader of the 24th meant having training in how to actually BE an effective leader.
Survival Training: A core part of Lori’s training was the ability to survive for extended periods of time with limited resources and having to adapt to her surroundings. Identifying the differences between edible and poisonous fruit, basic first aid in the field, etc., were are parts of such training.
Bullet Proof Shield: One of the positives of “Inferno” is a riot-shield attachment on the outer-casing of the weapon, which rotates underneath the gun when not pulled out. When it is pulled out, it is capable of stopping and deflecting gunfire, protecting Lori from people trying to shoot her.
Patience: You can’t rise in the Army without being willing to take a lot of nonsense. Lori’s been around enough that she can just let enough of it wash over her. But she still does have a tipping point, it’s just farther away than other peoples’. And when it’s reached…..
Standard Human: No magic spells, no superpowers. Standard vanilla human abilities and weaknesses in terms of the supernatural.
Overspecialization: When a person has a Minigun at their disposal, they are going to want to use that Minigun as much as possible. Lori is no exception to this rule. While she will still have the presence of mind to bring her pistol and combat knife, she will focus primarily on using the “Inferno”, even in situations where it might not be the best option. She very much considers it “hers”, despite it technically being a prototype that is still in testing before being sent into production proper.
“Inferno” can break down: It is, after all, still a prototype. It overheats, it can stall, and it occasionally needs a few slaps to properly work. It can, and possibly will, break down in the middle of a fight, and that will leave Lori open to attack until she either performs a quick fix on the gun, or she starts to use something else.
Combat Weaknesses: “Inferno” is a Minigun. They have a knockback. The project itself was basically scrapped until Lori was able to develop a stance and show that she can fire the weapon without falling back twenty feet on her ass. This means that she HAS to remain stationary in order to fire the gun; otherwise she will injure herself and potentially damage the weapon. This also means that, should she be attacked from behind, Lori would be basically defenseless.
Rage: Lori may have a high tolerance, but when it breaks, it breaks HARD. Tactics at this point just fly out the window, planning gets scrapped, teamwork thrown into the trash; when she’s angry, she wants someone to HURT and by HER HANDS. She becomes so focused that she develops tunnel vision to her surroundings.
EDIT: So, for pre-round stuff, I had to include some things that were taken away from Lori. A few things were a bit hard (namely the "powers" section), but here they are for anyone who needs to know!
Stuff that Veronica ends up taking away from Lori due to her magic spiders:
That bullet-proof glass on the shield part of Inferno? The one that VN gave Lori just before he headed off to the hotel? Gone. She’s basically blind firing at full-protection. Full shield means lack of vision. I understand that this isn’t a “power”, per se, but since her only “power” is her choice in weaponry, that’s what’s getting changed.
Memories of her fiancé and soon-to-be step-son. Bye-bye love of her life and child she treats like her own flesh and blood!
How to perform a proper, in-the-field style fix if anything on Inferno breaks down. Something happens to it, it will be busted. Given that it’s still in testing stages, that could happen very easily. POST ROUND 1 EDIT: Lori has regained this knowledge after scaling the Tower in Round 1.
She no longer remembers being in charge of the “Blue Tiger Battalion”, the 24th Special Assault and Testing. As far as she can recall, she’s just another soldier in the group, albeit fairly high-ranking and serving under the Old Duck (the former CO of the Battalion).
Control over her Anger. Yeah, Lori’s going to be much, MUCH easier to set off. She no longer has very good control or patience, just a lot of RAGE.
