so I've got this idea of a post apocalypse zombie/infected story beating around in my head, and this is one of the characters that jumped out.
Meet Charlie. She came from an affluent family in London, parents wanted her to be a doctor or a solicitor, hoping that she'd someday be a magistrate or chief surgeon or the like, and were very disappointed that she became an artist instead. Specifically she got into metalworking, welding, and blacksmithing, and after school she took off to the States and got involved in the art scene in L.A. which was great until the outbreak. Now she splits her time between scavenging in the wilds, and converting civilian cars and trucks to mad maxian monstrocities, and occasionally dabbling in weapon smithing. She loves fire and metal, loves piercings and tats, and while she's never happier than when she's working on a piece of glowing hot metal, she does get a bit restless being in the same place for too long. She's very outgoing, and is very much a counterpoint to the other character in the works for this story.
