Below, there's a wall of some facts about her, don't read if not interested.
Mei's a part of a four-people reconnaissance team, trained since early childhood during global crisis, by private company at first, transferred to international forces at proper age.
Although highly useful, she's not a pleasant person, and tends to piss people off whether she wants it or not.
The story she was a part of, wasn't that much about her growth or letting her guards down, but more about learning to deal with shit while maintaining her own self where everyone expects her to break down.
I'm not sure why I made her, maybe I had enough the "hardass turning softass" scenarios.
"looks like they could kill you and could actually kill you"
25 years, 169 cm, rather small build, but healthy and athletic, no major injury.
Doesn't talk much, but thinks a lot, sometimes about few things at a time.
Exceptionally stable emotionally, but asocial and egoistic. Often pretends to be ignorant as heck, mostly towards strangers or people she wants nothing to do with.
When fully equipped, looks scrawny and child-like, which tends to give a wrong impression of her abilities. Which usually works for her "detect, disorient, disable" routine.
All her things have their place, doesn't have much though and takes extra care of everything she owns.
Has an unconditional trust in her superiors, rather automatic due to her training, on the other hand acts competitive towards others, successively rendering people unable to trust her and include as part of the group. Gets by if teamed up with reasonable adults, but may provoke problematic teammates.
Has a superiority complex towards people weaker than her.
This doesn't impair her performance though, she's able to do her job and cooperate despite eventual differences, and if someone's falling behind, she fills in if this puts things in her favor. Still, prefers acting alone.
Usually conceals a small weapon on her, be it knife or a knuckle duster.
Knows about cruelty and "practical" application of tortures, her violence is straightforward, if needed, painful, but never mindless.
Doesn't get high on adrenaline.
Like many who want control over their menstrual cycles during deployment, carries hormonal implant (provided and refunded by military).
Has a cellphone with some old music on it (pirated by her brother, Malcolm). Listens to it while wanting to shut down thought trains or during super boring assignments. It can read all her implant data.
Walls, walls, walls, putting up walls everywhere, probably just to keep other people away, but that makes some just want to climb or tear through them. And some want legit gate to the other side.
Miss Sinister, Mei Deadpan Coen, That Frigid Bitch, RBF, just several names she's known under.
Well... Embodiment of resting bitch face to be honest.
Is the only one in the team that knows only one language. Kaleb knows some Turkish, Simon is Polish and also knows Ukrainian, Ben can utter few words in German.
Overanalyses some past situations regardless of their outcome. Maybe there was something she could've done better.
Got used to Ben's constant probing and now replies with snark or sarcasm rather than abrasiveness.
Drunk: gets more relaxed, emotes more, still doesn't talk much, rather holds back in case of letting her guard down, falls asleep fast.
Hangover: almost none, good as new after sleeping off.
