Commander Nadiya Theagan. Franks
Noddy, Franks, Commander Franks, Engineer, Clarke (joking), Commander
Single but always happy to browse
Nadiya is mostly a docile woman when left to her own devices or when being treated fairly and kindly as most people would. She can be rather dorky in nature as she is always a fan of pop culture involving movies, games, shows, books and more as she seems to be rather internet friendly and savvy. As one would put it, she tries to keep up with the "memes" of the times. Her jokes are usually very corny and offbeat, but her more deadpan jokes seem to humor people more.
She is not one for the spotlight usually as she seems to gain more anxiety when put into a leadership role in charge of many other people. Yet when she is alone or a small group she trusts, she is easily excelling at the given role. Her problem-solving skills are commendable as she has found ways out of many situations ranging from simple to extreme whether it be smooth-talking or strategizing. She will instantly give credit for her skills to training and strategy games. Ever since she had her experiences on Mindoir and Akuze, Nadiya is reluctant to have a team and reluctant to get close to others. She also shows great reluctance over fighting and acting as a true commanding officer of the Alliance Navy.
Nadiya is not someone who usually would turn someone away as she understands the pains of rejection and humiliation from others. While she is mostly an open and welcoming person, she usually will not let anyone walk on her at all and will state how she feels easily. When put into emergency situations, she tends to excel where others do not and usually adapts and survives. It seems that one thing she at least fears is being alone and left to her paranoia and her own thoughts.
Nadiya was born on a colony on Mindoir with her family as farmers who minded their own business for the most part as her father taught her anything he could about technology and how to work with it from engineering to mechanics. For a good portion of her life, she would become familiarized with machinery and what to do with it.
However, her life would change at sixteen when her colony was invaded by Batarian slavers and mostly everyone in her colony was wiped out. Nadiya however would be saved by an Alliance patrol passing by and this made her enlist soon after to begin learning more about engineering and mechanical work as she woudl quickly rise up to the challenge they would give her and she would excel without question.
After she would rise up in ranks over time, Nadiya would shy away from promotions and leadership positions as she would have dealt with many rejections from social groups and more while rising up and did not want to face it again. So she would isolate herself for the most part and comply with training and practice that would be required of her.
While she was still fairly young, Nadiya would gain recognition from a higher ranking officer and be sent with a unit of Alliance Marines to go investigate some troubles on Akuze- a human colony that was just starting out but contact had been lost with the pioneer team there. So she went with this unit to be attacked by Thresher Maws at their camp in the nighttime. Nadiya would be the only one to survive the attacks and carry the guilt of being the only one left with her once again.
This caused Nadiya to try and never return to the field or leave the ship. She insisted that she work on the ship to protect the people and not risk another failure such as Akuze. From Mindoir to Akuze, word about Nadiya would continue to spread about her heroism, yet she would reject it all and keep her solitude no matter how many people asked for her assistance or tried to bribe her to work out int he field for a wonderful promotion.
Her loner reputation continued and most would begin believing she was a mute when she would never fully greet people verbally but give smiles and waves unless someone tried to get to know her. She would be transferred to the USG Ishimura to work as the lead mechanic/engineer as she kept to herself until a strange object would be brought onboard along with trouble following it. It seemed to be no accident that the Alliance Navy sent her to oversee the USG Ishimura as Nadiya was the only Alliance Navy officer on the ship.
Over time, crewmembers would change and fall victim to what was known as The Marker and the Necromorphs it would bring onto their ship. People would be driven to insanity on a wild spectrum, be killed, commit suicide or worse. Nadiya herself would take it upon herself to try and survive and call for help as much as she could while hiding and fleeing from the enemies that she once called crew.
Yet one can survive for so long on their own.
(Note: This OC is based off of the video game series of Dead Space and Mass Effect as well as other sci-fi influences! I do not own any of the content involving the two game series and just have them for fun from a crossover RP I had years ago. Insetad of Commander Shepard mixed with Isaac Clarke, we have Commander Franks. Thanks!)
Character Relationship Status
(FC is Spencer Locke) Nadiya is a blonde haired, hazel eyed woman who stands at 5'7" and weighs about 127 lbs. She is not extremely athletic as she usually works with technology and usually does not have to be physically active. However, she is not completely unhealthy as she is capable of doing physical work like working on machinery and repairing it.
Nadiya is mostly a very awkward and lonesome individual who keeps to herself due to her nerdier aspects and odd behavior. Since she was a young child, she never exactly had proper guidance or a good role model to follow for any kind of proper manners or structure. She usually pretends to be a mute so people won't see her in a negative light as she'll usually only speak when a crew member she knows will talk to her, a leader will address her, or someone makes her mad by touching her equipment and technology she is fixing. When put in the center or attention or in a role of leadership, she will become more flustered and unsure of what to do as she does not seem to like being the leader due to all of the responsibilities that come with it and the people who would look up to her. However, she can handle leadership roles alone or with a small group of people.
Nadiya enjoys anything involving with technology and problem-solving. She usually excels in tactics and practice drills on shooting, emergency drills, and defense preparations. Some of her superiors have trained her for leadership roles to try and promote her, but she continuously denies them each time. Nadiya also enjoys topics of various pop culture topics like video games, movies, shows and books. She also tries to keep up with the "hip" lingo of the kids.
Nadiya is very much so against the extermination of other races and cultures as she had gone through something similar when her home colony had been wiped out by an aggressive alien race. She also does not usually like being bothered by others or being pestered by them and will try to remain as isolated as possible. When thrust into a leadership role, she does tense up and lose her train of thought. While she does not like being bothered by others, she does have a fear of actually being alone.
