Lena

Female Dwarf Social/Melee Adept

Description:

Lena Deskatchova, 25 female, dwarven. Mother tongue: Polish.
Born in the Lodz slums, she was one of the lucky ones, selected by the authorities after testing well on childhood aptitude tests and qualifying for state school (only later in life did it become clear that her capabilities were routed in the astral).
She managed a decent education and went into policing, Her natural charisma and charm made advancing throught the ranks a dream and she ended up moving to the UK in her early 20’s to work for the Met police in london; returning home to Poland only when her kid sister disappeared without a trace and abandoning her position in the ‘met when her compassionate leave expired. She failed her return to work interviews and refused all counselling, her stubborn streak too strong to accept the help offered, instead falling into the shadows of Poland’s old industrial heartlands by nature of having to pay the bills somehow. Her interrogation and intense front-line policing training comes in more than handy for negotiation and diffusing situations as well as surpressing potential combatants before they get unruly.
Always one for a scrap as a kid, police combat training gave her the discipline to regularly best foes and she trains most days if able.
She currently lives in a drek-hole of an apartment in east Lodz, opposite a steel-fab factory on the wrong end of town.

Contacts: 18
Hanna Kurkova; Romanian Fixer 2,4
Has given Lena several jobs and is beginning to get past the hard-nosed “business-only” attitude they had on their first meet a year ago. Has contacts across several polish cities and out into europe

Romaine Kurt; French-Polish decker {4},3
Skirted social circles since their early teens, they had a bit of an on/off relationship but stayed friends and both ended up in law-enforcement of some description. Romaine fell foul of the Polish national police over inappropriate use of surveillance and was scape-goated by his boss. Discharged from the force dishonourably, the shadows now pay his bills.

Zuzanna Kowalski; Mountain ranger 3,3
A good friend from her teenage years, she went to work for the national park’s security services and is a skilled outdoorsman; trained in dealing with the paracritters and wildlife of the wild borderland of the Tatra mountains. Well connected with other outdoorsy folk, she’s a wealth of knowledge of passes, W-zone hideouts and big-game hunting.

Petr Smolensk; Mechanic 1,1
An Ork in Lodz who runs a very small family run repair shop known for being discreet. Specialises in the off-road vehicles common to the area.
