Cherry McAlistor is a computer expect who works in the tech company Piston Inc. Sounds normal on paper, right? Well, it's a little more complicated then that. Cherry works directly under Piston himself, and is often the guinea pig for the mad cyborgs inventions. This means many things, but often end up in very dangerous situations for the redhead, or at least, would, if not for Piston's greatest invention. The Slapstick Generator keeps her safe, effectively turning her into a living cartoon, and Cherry's been at it so long, that's tottally used to the idea of being flattened, blown up, and everything else. Indeed, Cherry was Piston's first assistant, and this partnership was great for both of them, mellowing them out considerably.
When Cherry was very young, she lost both of her parents in an accident. Having no other families, she bounced from orphanage to foster home after foster home, never finding anywhere she belonged. Her only true home was in libraries, where she fell in love with computers, eventually honing her craft, becoming quite the expert. However, she had quite the bit of edge to her, and would take shady jobs just because she could, hacking into certain places and stealing sensitive info. That was how she met Piston, he was a target for her to steal some of his ideas, even going so far as to sneak into his workshop, way beyond her skill set. She was discovered, but then found out that she was hired only to distract him, with nothing more then bait. Piston took and interest in her, offered her a job, and the two have been together since!
Being with Piston Inc for so long has made her quite a cool customer, reacting to most situations with a light quip and very little stress, though on her bad days She can get pretty moody and introverted. She also has a sort of "big sister" relation ship with most of the other girls. Melly in particular looks up to Cherry with great respect. Conversely, she has a sort of rivalry with Rhasp. While the two are in fact good friends, they Often bring put the worst in each other, and are constantly facing off in competitions over nothing. While it's usually Rhasp who initiates the battles, Cherry has a mean competitive streak that will not let her say no.
Aside from all her friends at the workshop, Cherry has two great loves. The first is anime, she watches a ton of it, and is often making references, even to shows only she has seen! She dabbles in cosplay, but isn't very serious about it. She has a huge collection of swag, though she keeps a certain bit of it hidden; she doesn't want people to know about her Yaoi horde, though everyone already knows, they just pretend. But even greater then anime, Cherry's number one favorite thing is Ice cream. She can't get enough of the stuff, and will do anything to get a hold of some. Far too many of her aforementioned contests have ice cream on the line, and her sweet tooth has gotten her into many sticky situations and fights. She doesn't have a favorite flavor, in case you were wondering, all ice cream is great to her!
Her most prized possession are her nunchuks, called The Deleter. They are high tech , and made by Piston for her. She is quite skilled with them, and as an added bonus, they can shoot lasers, among other things. She has another power as, one that not ever her or Piston know how she got it. After taking in a deep breath, she can hold it in, charging her attack. When she releases the breath, she'll breathe out a large ball of explosive energy, something she playfully calls a Cherry Bomb. Cherry is already willing to fight for her friends, but is normally mellow and pretty much kind hearted, though don't get between her and her ice cream!
