In 300-500 words total, tell us your...
Character's background (their past and present): In 850 AD Amanda was stoned when she was caught stealing a piece of bread from a plagued house. The stone killed her, but she didn't stay dead. When she woke she found herself in the home of Rebecca Thorne. Rebecca taught her the way of the immortal game. Over the years Amanda gained many skills, reading, writing, acting, tight rope walking, riding horses, singing, and more. No other skill has she honed more than that of being a thief. Having spent the better part of her almost 1200 years as a thief she is the best. Never using guns because only ameturs get caught. In the late 20th century her off and on lover, Duncan MacCloud and then new friend Nick Wolfe both had a huge influence on her. At that point Amanda went straight, mostly. First she tried a string of opportunities such as agent and eventually bar owner in Paris. After an encounter with another immortal she was unable to return to the bar and she set off looking for a new direction, at which point she found Milliways, or more to the point Milliways found her. Now per Milliways canon, she is a romance novelist in Los Angeles, CA in the year 2014.
Character's personality: Vibrant, social, always looking for an adventure. If given a choice she would run from a fight. However if cornered or if a friend is in danger she will step up, especially if it isn't facing another immortal (from her universe).
Character's skills/abilities/powers: After almost 1200 years she has a vast array of skills. Most importantly is the fact that she is an immortal. If killed she dies and then comes back after an unspecified amount of time. If injured she heals very fast and is immune to disease. The Game requires her to face other immortals in combat, when they lose their heads they lose their lives and the victor takes everything that they are. Also, Amanda has been a thief for almost her entire life so has all of the skills that come with that.
Any special equipment your character is bringing along? This includes weapons, magic items, etc.: She is bringing a gym bag with her lightsaber and sword.
Are you bringing your character to [community profile] ten_fwd from another game? If you are, which game?: Yes, Amanda is coming in from Milliways.
If you answered yes above, briefly summarize how they were changed by and what challenges they faced in the climate of their previous game(s): Amanda has become an honest woman, now working as a novelist instead of a thief. Also she has become more compassionate, and has an even more open mind.
Why do you want to play this character in Ten Forward, and what do you plan to do with them?
Amanda would be great in Ten Forward. She has actually met Kirk and a handful of other star trek universe characters so it would be great! My plan with Amanda is to have her exist in both Milliway's and Ten Forward for the rest of the year and then she will stay in Ten Forward only. This would work perfectly in her canon as in the final Highlander movie Amanda was never mentioned, and never made an appearance. I would love to make it so that the reason for this is she left the game when she came to the Enterprise and stayed there. Amanda will go on as many away missions as her mun is able to attend.
