"Don't worry about me, darling. Getting rough is my favorite part."
Name: Danielle Zeta Fuhr
Occupation: Pilot / Entrepreneur
When considering Danielle's personality, the only way to correctly describe her would be to catalogue the development of her personality into phases, as is the case with most living, breathing humans. As a child, Danielle was largely reserved; she would allow her parents to fulfill the requirement of their oft busy and demanding schedules, while she occupied herself, tinkering with toys, reading books, and rounding herself out as a jack of all trades at even a young age. Ostensibly, Danielle was raising herself to be the perfect child, even without parental guidance. Certainly there was an influence to do so by the hiring of tutors, nannies, and other caregivers, but it had always seemed as if Danielle understood the goal of such an influence, that she was seeing the big picture, even from a young age. In the intelligence department, Danielle most certainly did not lack; even as a young child.
As she grew into her adolescence, Danielle suffered from what many children from such an affluent background do, and that is a healthy streak of complacency combined with natural rebellion as a byproduct of hormones beginning to bubble to the surface. Danielle would often begin to veto the requests of the caregivers she had so effortlessly followed before, choosing to believe that she was now the master of all they had to teach her. So, instead of learning her meticulously crafted academic unit, as was planned for her, Danielle would find herself sneaking out, experiencing life a hoodlum, and even being known to commit the occasional petty crime. To avoid this serving as a large scale embarrassment to her family, which would certainly end her little jaunt as a rebel, Danielle always had the wherewithal to carry around just enough money to grease the palms of those looking to make an example of her to the public.
This superior cunning mixed with a depth of knowledge in the fields of psychology and the power of monetary influence would serve as an avenue to reach her final form in terms of personality: a femme fatale with shiploads of money and the political power to bend those against her to her will. Her natural spunk and charm allow for her to find herself in some unmistakably strange situations, most of which she seems to find herself on top of, sometimes regardless of the consequence. However manipulative and reasonably evil that may have made her to a point, Danielle does show a demonstrable moral compass when something of legitimate importance shows its face, and will do what is right by not only herself, but those around her when required to do so. Still, as a woman who has always had it all at the tip of her fingers, do not hold your breath expecting her to change her course of action for another's benefit if serving herself shows no clear detriment.
Despite largely being in her own care for most of her child life, Danielle hardly ever felt the pangs of loneliness one would expect from spending so much time alone, or in the presence of those who do not share the family's blood. As a matter of fact, it came as sort of a surprise to the Fuhr's that their daughter was so on board and understanding of the situation they were in; Both father and mother were unthinkably powerful political figures, a product of wartime allowing the more affluent families to begin adding an influence of their own to the power struggle, and Danielle's production was simply an end to the means of needing to continue the family line; to reproduce. If they were being honest with each other, neither parent placed a vested interest in raising the child they had carefully planned to be birthed a precise time in which they would not be quite so busy, and so their hiring of caretakers and other various guardians was their way of making sure they were caring for the child without doing so much of the actual caring for portion.
Of course, in exhausting honesty, this served both sides brilliantly for quite some time: The Fuhr's were able to continue their vicegrip on various politic that served their interests first, and Danielle was able to pursue any and all desires with no foreseeable blockade. Danielle was smart, athletic, rich, and attractive, all of which made for a life perfected in any venture. So long as people she could pay to help her learn the skills to accomplish a goal, Danielle accomplished it. Of course, the fun and games were stopped rather early on in her life, at the ripe age of 21 years old.
Terra Firma's relentless shell attacks had cost Danielle the only thing that she had ever thanked her parents for in her entire life: political protection. Before they had passed away as the result of a targeted attack, whenever Danielle had done something wrong in the public eye, as she was frequently caught doing, her family's oppressive political power had acquitted her of even the most questionable of decisions. Now that she was the visionary for the Fuhr future, there was a pervasive pressure to continue their legacy, and clean up her act as a delinquent, neither of which Danielle had cared to do. Fortunately enough for her, however, Danielle was born with an impressive cunning, and she began to spin a plan immediately, one that would serve her the best, just as her parents had done in the past.
She played all the necessary cards at first: attending the funerals, dinners, processions and meetings that followed the tragic death of two influential figures, even showing upside as a consolidated force that would continue to usher her family's vision into the SAF government structure: one that would see the war be transformed into a controlled, monetized production. The Fuhr's plan was, through use of investments and other creative fundraising, to control the SAF military and choose specific date ranges in which they would refute the Terra Firma forces. Under this model, the Fuhr family would be able to juice the production companies to their maximum profit margin, and ostensibly create an infinite loop is supply, demand, and threat. If they were able to control when victory occurs, the Fuhr's would be able to allow Terra Firma victory for long term monetary gain. It was a brutal, and most certainly evil plan, but there was no denying the potential effectiveness of such a strategy. However, opposing parties doubted the efficiency of their plan: would they truly be able to control victory without being aware of the power of the pilots at hand, as well as the technology of the enemy?
Through Danielle's intelligence, understanding of the power of currency in the right places, and irresistible charm, Danielle was able to convince the aforementioned opposition that to remove at least one primary variable, Danielle, herself, would become a high ranking pilot for the SAF. Given her propensity for excelling in all fields she has faced prior to this, Danielle was able to convince her doubters that she would have no issue succeeding in the war and bringing great fortune to everyone that backed her vision with considerable donation. Whereas before Danielle had sought to avoid the spotlight, and hide under the umbrella of her parents' power, she now clearly visioned the opportunity in front of her: dominate the war she felt was below her ability, and become a hero of history, the most powerful woman of all recorded time, and be truly renowned as a woman incapable of being compared to. Simple stuff, really, for a woman who's had it all for day one.
She now exists as a member of TRAP, a highly specialized unit of pilots, and one she may or may not be necessarily qualified to pilot for in terms of experience, but money talks, especially when it comes to the war effort.
