Name- Amanda Hale
Appearance- 5'7", 115lbs. 36D-24-34. Light-blonde hair and blue eyes. Naturally tan skin.
Personality- Amanda is a sensitive, sweet girl at heart, and it shows in her strong mortals and idealistic views. However her years of rough treatment both at home, on the streets and in the military have caused her to put up a strong defensive emotional front. When it comes down to business, Amanda is focused and professional, but off-duty she's thought of as just "one of the guys".
Occupation- Frontline Field Agent for Taurus- ZODIAC's Los Angeles branch. Responsible for investigations, recon and first-response combat duties.
Abilities- Amanda excels in hand-to-hand combat, and has studied a variety of styles but has broken them down into the most effective uses of the human body, making her previous training difficult to determine just by watching her fight.
Biography- Amanda was born to a prostitute and the man who claimed he was going to "save" her from her horrible job and life, unfortunately his version of "saving" involved verbal and physical abuse to both mother and daughter. Because of this, Amanda spent most of her time outside of the house, more specifically on the streets of the less-friendly parts of Los Angeles. She grew up fighting not only in self-defense but often times starting fights to show others she wasn't to be messed-with. Despite the lack of a female role-model, Amanda found a strong sense of morality, based mainly on watching her mother, step-father and others and deciding how she didn't want to be and how she felt others should be treated.
When Amanda turned 18, she saw the military as a way out of poverty and an otherwise aimless life. What she didn't know is what a natural talent she had for not only marksmanship and close-quarters combat, but also general adaptability and resourcefulness in a variety of situations her training and service found her in. With the help of superiors who saw her potential, and several legal battles, Amanda pushed her way into the Army Rangers. When she finished her contract with the military, she was hired into the private sector by Zodiac around the age of 23.
Amanda is currently on vacation in New York visiting old friends, when she hears about the attacks she immediately makes her way to the Aries branch and will try to get them to let her help with the investigation.
