Thought you boys could use some female company
Username: Deus Mortis
Name: Juliette 'Jewels' Wienc
Appearance: Juliette's face is smooth and pale, like many Geminar women. Her hair is hazel brown and comes only down to her collar. Any longer and it would be highly impractical. Here eyes are brown with a slight orange hue to them, making them look like segments of amber set in her eye-sockets. She stands at a moderate 5'9". She could be described as slender, but only just. Her body is toned and muscular, mainly through personal training. Whilst in Cold weather uniform it is almost impossible to differentiate between male and female, out in uniform her body possesses an alluring feminine grace which rather than being diminished by her muscles, seems to be accentuated by them. However, in uniform, the only real clue that there is a woman underneath is her voice.
Personality: Many struggle to categorically define Juliette's personality in terms of what she is, and so tend to resort to describing what she is not. She is not a wall-flower to be gazed and pick by her male peers. Indeed those who think so usually learn their error swiftly and painfully. She could not be described as level-headed, but neither is she rash. Rather she has out-bursts of both, although on balance she is probably more level-headed than rash. She is known to rebuff most initial attempts at friendship and flattery, more to test the person than because of a disinterest in people. She is usually a kind and jovial soul, but people have learnt to be wary when she has a change of heart. Forgiving but not forgetful, kind but not naive, tender but not weak, happy but not hopelessly optimistic, able to work people but not manipulative. All in all, Juliette is a mixed bag which results in a generally amicable person.
Biography: Juliette, like many on Geminar was born to a miner. Raised by her mother, she only once inquired about her fathers whereabouts. Her mother, a woman not often given over to displays of self-doubt or emotion seemed about to break apart at the question. She could only whisper one word to her daughter "Gone." Juliette never asked her mother again, knowing better than to think she would get an answer.
Being raised by a single parent gave Juliette a measure of strength and pride. She saw her mother fend for them and protect them and learnt from her example. She took up boxing at age 8 and by 12 became a champion for her age, which was fortunate as from that point on she began to mature from girl to woman and a strong arm helped to deter unwanted advances. However, she saw the unveiled face of the harshness of the mining work take its toll on her mother and several other families as people were injured or killed in accidents. Thus, Juliette refused to journey down the same path, not content to become another cog in an uncaring machine.
This came to a head when, at 16, her mother lost her arm in an accident. The higher echelons cared nothing for the plight of individuals and so her mother was no longer deemed useful and lost work. Realising that now she had to provide for her mother as she had for her, Juliette petitioned to join the PDF. At her age it was extremely unlikely, but she got in none the less. A few theories abound as to how she got in. One says she performed certain 'favours' for the members of the all male review board. Some are less sordid, but speak of blackmail. If asked, Juliette smiles wryly and says that she walked in an aimed a shotgun at the board and treatened to shot them if she wasn't accepted. Given her nature, any and all seem like legitimate theories.
Most Geminari women are either mothers or miners, so to have a female member of the PDF is unusual but not impossible. So within the PDF, Juliette is reasonably well known, although within the PDF she is called 'Jewels'. Whether that is just a contraction of her name, something she propagated herself, or a reference to her amber-like eyes, it's not entirely certain. Whatever the reason, Juliette seems to at least endure it and so it has stuck. With no husband to speak of, her main reason for fighting is partly to prove herself and partly to provide for the person who gave her everything.
