To say Naomi is reserved and overtly casual would be an accurate description of the slender-framed brunette. The daughter of an Italian mother and a Polish father born and raised in Colorado, Naomi has a knack for all things outdoorsy, sporty or otherwise. Raised with two brothers on a small ranch, the brunette learned to grow up able to wrestle steer, her brothers and life with a smile on her face. Not one for fancy gadgets or anything too technologically advanced, Naomi actually has a hard time with computers and electronic gadgets; but she could fix your truck no problem. Family oriented, Naomi spent much time with her family up until she left for College and eventually moved out. After moving to Yellowstone, Naomi became a bit of a hermit -biding her time in her log cabin two hours from the nearest town doing her research or hiking the Montana wilds.
An animal person at heart, Naomi can be a bit fickle in her comparisons between the human world and that of the animal. She greatly revered and adored the Indian cultures and has taken many of their life lessons to heart. It can often be expected of Naomi to make remarks like "May the eagle guide you" or "Hunt like the puma, but be wise like the owl" or other off-hand remarks. She's not necessarily spiritual, but she does consider some things sacred and others cursed, and in the occasional taboo.
Since the outbreak, Naomi has evolved into a more ruthless, analytical person. Still with good-nature at heart, and always having a smile to share, Naomi knows how to get things done, and how to get people to listen to her. While mostly a free-spirited individual, Naomi holds the bonds of friendship and family in great regard and considers those she looks after as her 'Pack' and will fight for them even after death. Naomi is particularly fond of children and often shares stories with them -be that of her personal life or perhaps sharing a tribal legend.
Naomi knows how to be harsh, and despite her often cheery personality, will more often then not come off as a hard-ass bitch on first impression. She's cunning, intelligent and quick tongued and her wise, experienced exterior tells that she's had her share of hardships and she's one you can trust, even if she seems a bit mysterious at first. Excellent at the art of raw survival, Naomi has put her knowledge of herbs (Both learned from experience, study or from tribal remedies) and survival instincts to good use. Having lived in Montana to her own devices, she's well equipped to surviving when you only have the clothes on your back and the shoes on your feet. To which she put these skills to good work when she founded and built the Neutral Familia camp.
When the camp originated, Naomi met Shi Xeng, a monk who had come seeking shelter. Naomi befriended him and much is her fascination with tribal legends, as did her interest in his culture grow as well. to her surprise, however, Shi Xeng was a monk who excelled in martial arts, particularly Kung Fu. She trained under him for many years, learning to defend herself as well as meditate and expand her mind. to this day, Naomi still meditates on a daily basis.
(History to be revealed/edited later)
Naomi is skilled with a wide array of weapons, from a chainsaw to a woodcutter's axe to a .50 caliber rifle. She carries with her, and expertly wields, a fireman's axe to which she modified to both sturdy it and add more precision and a sawed-off double barrel shotgun. She also carries with her a hunter's knife, a pocket knife and a magnum. She usually carries around a backpack with a water bottle, a bottle of water purifying drops, a length of rope, flares (x2), and a few packs of emergency blankets.
