Decided to take a slightly different approach with this one. Not what I intended to post first, but since this is one of the two characters I'll be reintroducing to Wilypocalypse soon, I figured this was appropriate.
have a more traditional bio if anyone would prefer that instead.[ACCESSING I.L.E.S.A. MAIN DATABASE.....

- Right Arm missing at the shoulder, though the patient does not seem to have suffered any loss of effectiveness as a result. Reason for this injury is unknown, and the patient became belligerent when questioned.
- Heavy scarring across almost all portions of the body, most prominently the face and torso. Reason unknown.
- Overall physical condition is above average despite the injuries mentioned above.
- Eyesight and hearing are within expected and acceptable levels for the patient's age and physical condition.
- Patient's fitness levels are above average in almost all areas, and their ability to perform their duties will not be hindered in any meaningful way by any of the injuries mentioned above.Notes from Cadet Psyche Evaluation (from the files of Dr. Sato)
- Patient is generally calm and composed, but quickly becomes belligerent when questioned about their personal life and history.
- Patient displays little respect for authority figures, but will follow most orders without issue.
- Patient shows a tendency to interpret orders in a loose fashion, and appears to be a firm believer in the concept of the ends justifying the means. Recommend supervision at all times when deployed in the field.
- Patient displays little interest in the more sedate aspects of their duties, but shows a great deal of enthusiasm for the more physical side of the job.
- I believe Officer Valcadash to be of sound enough mind to function as a productive member of the I.L.E.S.A, but recommend that they be assigned a partner at all times to curb the more destructive elements of their personality. I also advise follow up evaluations every six months to ensure they remain fit for duty.
And here's the more conventional one.
Name: Bellona Valcadash
When an I.L.E.S.A task force mounted an operation in an attempt to capture the second-in-command of an interplanetary drug-smuggling ring, they did not expect to receive civilian assistance. That the civilian in question was a heavily-scarred, one-armed teenage girl didn't register with them at all.
Following the operation, the task force's commander tracked the girl down and offered her a place in the I.L.E.S.A Cadet Training program. Initially dubious, the girl accepted the offer and enrolled in the program, eventually graduating with a distinction and being assigned to the I.L.E.S.A 15th Squad.
However, the girl - Bellona - soon proved to be something of a loose cannon, and quickly gained a disciplinary record that would become the stuff of legends amongst future cadet aspirants.
Growing tired of her attitude problems and unprofessional conduct, the 15th Squad's captain requested that she be transferred to the newly formed 91st, since the captain of the 91st was seen as inherently untrustworthy and had been given the post solely to keep them out of the way, he figured shunting her out to the boonies would be a smart move.
Too bad for him that Captain Cyril Zabat of the 91st isn't too bothered by Bellona's attitude, sharing her.....unique....views on what constitutes a successful mission. For her part, Bell is decidedly apathetic about the whole thing, but has taken note of her new captain's rather more relaxed attitude towards her actions.
Bell is foul-mouthed, quick to anger and has absolutely no interest in the particulars of police work. In short, she's the exact opposite of what a law enforcement officer is supposed to be, at least on paper. In actuality, she takes her job extremely seriously, and has one of the highest arrest rates of any human currently serving in the IPD. That she doesn't see the point in things like paperwork or restraint shouldn't matter. In her eyes, and the eyes of Captain Zabat, she gets results, and that's what counts.
She shows little respect for authority figures - though she is slowly, grudgingly beginning to revise her opinion of Captain Zabat - and has shown a knack for interpreting her orders in as loose a manner as possible. If you're not exact in your wording of any instructions you give to her, she'll loophole them as many times as she pleases and not think twice about the consequences. This attitude has seen her suspended on no less than three separate occasions - once for assaulting a fellow officer -, and she holds the current IPD record for the highest number of Formal Apology Letters written by a human, at 47. She's also been reprimanded for inappropriate conduct on at least 150 different occasions.
Her work ethic is a simple "the ends justify the means" approach, and her apparent unwillingness to follow basic codes of conduct and ethics means there's little she won't do to ensure a mission's success. You'd think with a record like hers she'd have been let go a long time ago. In truth, IPD Central Command has elected to keep her around solely because while she's on staff, she can be supervised. Nobody wants to think about what would happen if she were turned loose.
For the record, any mission involving Bell can be said to have gone well if the after-action reports are able to include the words "Nobody died" at least once.
Bell is a formidable hand-to-hand combatant, despite the fact that she only has one arm. Her fighting style can best be described as "Bar Brawl without the Bar". She has absolutely no compunctions about fighting dirty and will take whatever shortcuts she can in order to bring down her targets. Up close, she favours crushing knee and forearm strikes and can quite easily break bones if sufficiently riled.
Suspect holed up in a building that's too dangerous to approach? If the orders don't directly state it, just drop the building on him.
Suspect escaping on foot? Well, a couple bullets through the kneecaps will solve that problem.
She's received the same training as all other IPD Cadets, and is a reasonable shot with most forms of firearm, though her overall selection is limited by the fact that some guns cannot be fired one-handed.
Bell's obvious physical handicap can sometimes work against her, in that there are certain things she simply cannot do unassisted. Her dress uniform had to be custom tailored to replace the buttons, zippers and laces with simple straps and buckles, for example.
While reasonably skilled with most of the firearms she's capable of wielding, she's nowhere near an expert, and she needs to take time to aim if she's going to place her shots with any real kind of efficiency.
Her attitude towards the job and her colleagues has made her very few friends, and there have been times when her temper has gotten the better of her. She's been patched up by the 15th's medical team more times than she cares to count as a result of her pragmatic approach to the job backfiring on her.
- Steel-Plate Forearm, Knee and Shin Protectors - She was deadly enough on her own. Now she's hitting you with solid slabs of metal.
- Mark XIX Desert Eagle - Loaded with .357 rounds. Who cares what your aim is like? If they get hit, they're going down, no question.
- Suppression Disk - Because handcuffs are too tricky and tazering people is always fun.
