Name: Lucy ColePokemon: SpindaAge: 26
5'3"Gender: FemaleSexuality: Pansexual (capable of attraction to all genders)Nature: GentlePersonality: Soothing and calm. Lucy has a habit of being sisterly toward the other members of the group, and tries her best to keep them in their best condition. She's a strong believer in the idea that all people have worth, even those who can't do as much work as the others.Ability: Own Tempo
Job: Main medicMoveset: Hypnosis
Feint AttackLikes:✔ Old medical books (the heavy, dust-collecting kind; bringing her one is a good way to win her favor)
✔ Small children
✔ Old libraries
✔ Bitter foods (dark chocolate, strong coffee, etc)
✔ Swing music (her post-apocalyptic dream is to find a safe room and a record player somewhere)
✔ Singing (She's no Beyonce, but she's got a nice enough lullaby voice)
Dislikes:✘ Sour foods
✘ Ruined books
✘ Excess noise (It's annoying. Also it attracts zombies.)
✘ Being pushed aroundStrengths:
She's quite intelligent, it's somewhat hard to manipulate her. She can easily separate herself from serious medical procedures to ensure a patient's safety.
Weaknesses: She tends to fuss over other group members, particularly the ones recovering from injury, to the point of
annoying the everloving crap out of the person she's taking care of. More seriously, this also means sometimes missing sleep or losing track of her own meals. That becomes an issue particularly because she's prone to anemia (which makes her susceptible to dizziness, fatigue, and fainting).
Lucy also has a bit of trouble with using the proper tone of voice. On occasion, she'll speak too harshly on accident, leading to hurt feelings (which she'll try to rectify as soon as she realizes the mistake, but that can take days).
She's somewhat sensitive when it comes to the subject of her medical training, and reminding her that she didn't finish her residency and become a "real" doctor before the apocalypse will put a damper on her mood. She won't cry in front of others, though.Before the Apocalypse:
Lucy was born into a rather wealthy home. Her mother was a kind but somewhat overbearing Spinda who worked as a college professor, and her father was a relaxed and rather intelligent therapist Hypno. Fearing their child could be mocked for her rather large birthmark, her parents home-schooled her and limited her social interactions to the kinder, more well-behaved children of their friends.
She took after her father from a young age, and always seemed to have a fascination with medical science. However, while her father was a therapist, she instead wanted to pursue more physical medicine. She devoured medical textbooks as fast as her father could find them for her, and by the time she was ten, her intelligence could rival that of a high school freshman, but her reading comprehension was above the level of a senior. She began high school at age eleven and finished three years later, at age fourteen. At age fifteen, she began attending a private college. Lucy drove with her mother to school every morning, attended her lectures and studied, and then went home when her mother left for the evening. She spent much of her free time in the libraries, where she even found a few new medical textbooks to study.
At the age of 19, Lucy moved out of her parents' home and began medical school to become a surgeon. Her studying payed off when, at the age of 23, she graduated with high grades as the youngest in her class. She began her residency in a large hospital soon after, and two years later, disaster struck. She was at home when she saw the aerial footage of the outbreak on the news. She fled to her parents' home, armed with the few weapons she could find in her home- a screwdriver and the Swiss army knife that she'd previously only used to open cans. She stayed with her parents for a short time, and they planned to leave the following morning, but when the undead came, they came hard. Her father held off the zombies while Lucy and her mother ran through the back of the estate, but her mother was bitten during the escape. Lucy treated the bite as long as she could, but her mother succumbed to the injury and turned a few days later. Lucy was forced to put her down, then left with her mother's handgun, a small medical kit, and a goal- survive.RP Methods:
