The Undead Chamber
Name: Rebecca (Beck) Logan
Standing at an average height of 5'5" and having a common brown shade of hair and eyes, Beck does not stand out in a crowd. She tends to dress casual, jeans and t-shirts, and while her figure is slender, she is not curvaesous. She has a girl-next-door appearance, attractive, although not striking, with an open expression, her caring personality making up for the deficit in her looks.
Issued gear for agents includes:
Bandoliers: Two--criss-crossed across her chest.
Go-Bag: (Energy bars, water-purification kit, lighter, first-aid kit, rope, flashlight, duct tape, hygiene items, and spare clothes)
Some Amount of Armor: First Response Multi-Threat vest, Anti-Riot Shin Knee Guards
Knee Pads (part of shin guards)
Primary: Steyr Aug (13.8") 30 round box magazine
Secondary: N/A at present
Handgun: Glock 19 (9mm) (15 round cartridges)
Melee: Fixed blade hunting knife in a sheath strapped to her right thigh
Rebecca grew up in Pennsylania, the hilltop homes and bridges very familiar to her. Housed in a small home with her parents and one younger sibling, her life was anything but typical...the daily drill very demanding. Her father was a police officer and from an early age he insisted on his children being able to take care of themselves in any situation. This included swimming lessons, first aid and CPR, martial arts training, self-defense classes, weapons training, and physical fitness work-outs. Her younger brother dreaded these obligations as much as she looked forward to them, the young girl always enjoying a challenge to both her body and mind.
Fresh out of high school, Beck found herself wanting to follow in her mother's footsteps and get into the field in medicine. Her mother had been a nurse and Beck dreamed of becoming a doctor. It was only when her mother suffered a fatal heart attack a couple of years later that she decided to drop out of school and stay at home to help with the chore of raising her brother. It was no easy task. The sixteen year old was stealing from his family and friends to support a drug habit, and with Beck back in the picture, he had one more victim to pilfer from.
A few years passed, and Beck finally allowed herself to set out on her own again. For the most part, things went back to normal...the exception occurring shortly after she found a small apartment for rent and settled in. Approached by a man claiming to be from a tactical response unit called the Strategic Homeland Division, her curiosity was piqued when he offered her an opportunity to join the group, stating she had been recommended for this opportunity by an aquintence. No amount of badgering got her the name, but she agreed readily enough and began her training in short order. She returned to daily life afterwards, her father soon to be retired and her brother clean. With her savings gone, she opted to become an EMT, hoping she could set aside some money again for schooling. Passing the cerification progam and physical exam easily, she found employment at the local hospital and squirreled her paychecks away. For the next few years, things went as planned...smooth riding...
After the initial outbreak of what was considered a measles-like epidemic, the situation outside went from bad to worse, and Beck decided to once again move in with her younger brother to offer assistance. Her father had gone missing a week prior, presumed dead, and the two siblings fought daily to get enough to eat and survive each other's company. Beck tried to be sympathetic and caring, but her brother's negative attitude and unwillingness to help soon wore away on her nerves. They argued daily, the altercations often becoming physical, and the young woman feared they would be parting company soon...her abilitiy to deal with his problems no longer high on her list of obligations to family.
--Beck has been trained in emergency medical services in accordance with her occupation.
--Small arms training
--Physical management certificate--i.e. restraint/take-downs
--Melee fighting (uses a combination of several styles of martial arts and street fighting)
(I'd like a two to three paragraph sample. Your sample MUST be of the moment they were activated. They should be at work, going about their business, or at home with family. The face of the watch should glow orange, and anyone your with should be concerned and confused by your leaving. For inspiration there is a group of videos called Agent Origins on the Division Youtube channel.)

Name: Kara (K.D.) Dayton
Appearance: Standing a little shy of 5'5" and very slender, Kara appears diminutive compared to other girls her height...her preference for black clothing only accentuating this fact. Although rather thin, she is toned from long hours of aerobic training, her strength minimal, but her endurance taking up the slack. Pretty, in an abstract way, her expressive blue-grey eyes are her best feature. With an angular face, just a tad shy of being gaunt, full lips, and slightly large nose, she is not the picture of beauty she might have been before this horrific event took the healthy glow and twenty pounds from her petite frame.
Equipment: Kara always has a supply of collection bags and containers on her person, as well as the necessary gloves and facemask for obtaining 'hot' samples. A small kit carried at her waist contains a scalpel handle with blade, forceps, and hemostats. For protection, she has a folding pocket knife and a home made spear constructed from a long wooden handle with a fixed blade attached.
Useful Skills: Kara is a biologist and performed the daily water testing at the purification plant prior to the outbreak. It was her team which originally put out the warning in regards to the suspected contaminant in the water. Her skillset lies within the cellular structure of things--both plant and animal--on a microscopic level.
Personality: Kara is not the most outgoing person, tending to stay by herself unless approached. She is most at home in a lab and the close quarters of her new 'home' and all the other survivors are a bit suffocating to her. She is more likely to brood then lose her temper, her emotions quite often kept at bay.
Backstory: Kara came to the Halcyon Purification Center shortly after its formation. Her life in ruins, she chose to work at the station to get away from the shambles her life had become. A torrid love affair destroyed her marriage, lost her her dream job, and left her with nothing but an addiction to alcohol. She was destitute and wanted to get away from anything that reminded her of home. She got more than she wished for...
The outbreak destroyed what little faith she had left in humanity. Her team's warnings were ignored and eventually the station's staff fell ill with an infection. Quarantine did little to help and with all transmissions and travel ignored or halted, there was little to do but survive day to day.
Other: Kara frequently goes out on the supply runs...anything to get away from the claustrophobic feeling that ensnares her in such close quarters.
Name: Andi DuPre
Profession: High School teacher--science
Description: Andi is 5'6" with a slender, athletic build--her legs well-muscled from years of jogging. Her eyes are dark brown--almost black--and typically have a hint of humor to them. She has multiple tattoos: flower chain around left wrist, bow on back of right thigh, butterfly on lower back, and a celestial design on her shoulder/chest area. She also has several self-inflicted scars on her right inner thigh and left arm.
Weapons: Glock 19 with 15 round magazine (2 additional clips); shoulder holster; tire iron; pocket knife.
Equipment: Back pack: Matches, Medical kit, Taser/flash light, OTC pain relievers, additional clothing (socks, underwear, t-shirts), pepper spray, protein bars, refillable water bottle, duct tape, cell phone
Clothes: Casual wear: Fashionable worn blue jeans with grey patterned stretch pants underneath; red t-shirt; black leather jacket; running shoes
Background: A bit of a health nut, Andi grew her own vegetables and ran a minimum of 5 miles nightly along the streets of DC. She typically jogged alone, and for safety reasons, had a CCW permit and took several classes in self defense.
Academically, she's a science teacher, and worked full time at Middleton H.S., in the heart of DC, but she also enjoyed taking short trips to the mountains to hike and camp. For her camping was an adventure and she always set up at the "rustic sites", building a fire without matches and constructing a lean-to with branches--both skills she learned from her father at an early age. Although not a survivalist, she's pretty self-sufficient. ..and this was her typical schedule...
...and then the unthinkable happened.
Andi didn't believe in the walking dead, but when fiction becomes fact, you can't deny what is right before your eyes. So she stocked up on supplies and "bugged in", trying to keep up-to-date on all the happenings within the city. When the system failed, she went to the only fortified place she was familiar with--the high school. Set up with an enclosing fence, basement bomb shelter, and brick walls throughout, it was a virtual fortress and many people flocked there when their homes were no longer safe. The sick and injured were housed in the gymnasium and several military types roamed the halls. They had enough supplies to last at least a month--or until help came. But help did not come in time...they came...and Andi was forced to take to the streets at the height of infection.
