REPORTING LIVE FOR HAWK MEDIA, LIVE CORRESPONDENT: NEVE ENGEN!
[Neve is suitable for an MCU-type universe involving superheroes and superpowers, however, she could fit in a crime-like roleplay just as well.]

BASIC CHARACTER PROFILE:
NAME: Neve Engen
GENDER: Cis Female (she/her)
SPECIES: Human (no powers)
PERSONALITY: Neve is a headstrong reporter determined to publish what is right. She is strong, confident and often the object of villains' affections due to her TV presence. Neve may have a tough outer shell but her knowledge and influence over the press may be helpful to certain groups, whether that be superheroes wanting to prove their worth or people with powers trying to prove they aren't a threat.
"What can I say? They know how to get themselves publicised! Just kidnap the news lady, I suppose!"
Human (no powers)
Character Relationship Status
Neve is a woman with a slender and slightly curvy build standing at around 5'9. She has dark skin and black, wavy hair that reaches halfway down her back when styled. She has a slightly hooked nose, small plump lips and a mole underneath her left eye. Neve's always camera-ready with glamorous yet natural makeup. She's never without a small black brooch (which she claims is a family heirloom) and small notepads and pens to track anything to get her the next leading story. She has to wear thin-rimmed white glasses to help her see things up close.
Neve wears a brown plaid suit consisting of a blazer and pencil skirt that finishes halfway up her thighs. She wears a black turtleneck with simple gold jewellery. Her brooch is a small, ornate one, consisting of a black gemstone and black frills around it. She wears translucent black tights and black boots reaching up to her knees. If reporting, Neve will commonly have a mic attached to her ear and often wears gold earrings to compliment her outfit. Neve always wears a small, humble silver ring on her left hand when she's on camera, however, it seems to vanish when she's more casual.
Casually, Neve still tends to wear more figure-hugging clothes rather than baggy ones. She's seen in darker colours, similar to the Dark Academia aesthetic. Neve enjoys wearing turtlenecks and fitted, flared trousers. She always seems to wear boots or heels and rarely wears casual shoes like trainers. Neve still wears her glasses but more often has subtle makeup and ties her hair up often when she's home alone. Neve seems more casual in this attire and more comfortable, maybe she'll soften up a little, who knows?
Neve often makes TV debuts alongside her boss and has a lot of higher-up connections thanks to him. Often meeting with figures like government officials and celebrities for interviews, Neve tends to don sleek black dresses, opting for the simpler style. If out with her boss, she wears the silver ring but often doesn't and wears other gold jewellery instead. Neve hates dressing up like this but will if she must.
Neve is a smart and witty young woman, excelling in social skills and quick-thinking. Usually reporting live on casualties and in the middle of superhero fights, Neve is quick to react and knows exactly what to say to garner the response she wants. Neve is a confident young woman who knows what she wants yet she can often be moulded by matters of the heart.
LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!
On TV, Neve is very charismatic and witty, giving an almost theatrical performance as she knows how to keep people watching. Neve is eager and even enthusiastic to question social norms, even willing to target popular figures in media and politics if they have clashed with her beliefs. As a result, Neve is a very passionate young woman with a very strong and solid method of thinking and isn't intimidated by others and their perception of her.
BEHIND THE SCENES!
Off of television, Neve still has this headstrong and determined attitude but she can often be more sarcastic and cold. She tends to put up a front, preventing herself from getting hurt and tends to be somewhat reserved and uninterested. Once you get into Neve's sweeter interior, she can actually be very compassionate and caring towards others, possibly even letting herself love someone.
To put it bluntly, Neve likes to be right: she likes showing off her knowledge and proving others wrong. Building on this, she enjoys catching people out in their lies as the journalist is notorious for exposing several large companies and even superheroes in their lies. Showing off her knowledge and people skills gives Neve an ego boost and she likes to show this off whenever possible.
Neve also likes coffee, particularly cappuccinos with extra cream as she can always take it with her on reports no matter what. Despite her lone wolf lifestyle, she does enjoy the company of a select few people although it may take time for her to trust somebody. She also thrives in bustling city environments as she was born and raised in Boston, New York. She also has a keen interest in superheroes, whether it's finding out more about their abilities or trying to find out who they truly are.
Neve's goal at the end of the day is to be somebody and be famous in her field: she will do whatever it takes to get the next big story.
[CW: Alcoholism, toxic relationships and smoking]
Neve hates being talked down to and treated like an idiot: this is something she frequently experiences in the workplace and directly clashes with her headstrong personality. She also dislikes being doubted, which can cause her to question her abilities.
Neve has a conflicted relationship with her parents, causing a slight disdain towards them and her hometown of Boston. Her parents always pressured her to become rich and successful when Neve wanted to be her own person and this disconnection from her parents meant she hasn't talked to them since she was 18.
This can be lonely for Neve and caused her to fall for her on-and-off partner, Deron Hawk, the CEO of the media company she works for (Hawk Media). She also hates his ego and the way he constantly manipulates his surroundings and her, causing their tumultuous relationship. To add some more general dislikes, Neve isn't too keen on heights as she has been taken hostage by supervillains (usually on top of high skyscrapers) many times. She also has a fear of deep water and dislikes swimming as a result: she won't disclose why she has this fear. She also regularly complains about her job and her pay but most people suspect this is more because of her boss rather than the job's demands.
Neve also struggles with alcoholism and smoking, a habit she's developed since her late teens. She doesn't like being confronted on it and gets very agitated and defensive.
[CW: Unstable/toxic family dynamics & relationships, substance misuse]
Neve Engen is a Boston native who grew up as a single child in the suburbs. Her parents were lower middle-class so Neve was able to live comfortably, but they couldn't afford holidays or the newest technology, etc: this caused Neve's parents to implement the idea of being rich and successful in young Neve so they could be comfortable in future. Neve was naturally a smart and hardworking child, sustaining straight As throughout her compulsory school education.
Neve aimed for the Ivy League college for a major in Journalism but no matter what she brought to the table, her parents were never satisfied. They didn't understand Neve's fascination with journalism and wanted her to be a doctor or a lawyer as they knew that ensured a stable, wealthy pay for their comfort. Neve ignored them and got accepted to one Ivy League college.
Once at college, Neve was exposed more to drugs and alcohol and more freely. She had picked up smoking and alcohol at the age of 17 due to mixing with the wrong crowd in senior year and those habits developed in college. Neve then met Deron after one party who helped her get home and since then Deron has convinced Neve he owes a debt to her.
He found out about her interest in journalism and signed him onto his upcoming media firm which became highly successful due to their own individual inputs. Neve and Deron's relationship became messy and complicated, now consisting of on-and-off flings to appease the media in Deron's favour. Neve now works for Hawk Media as a journalist and reporter.
Neve usually carries her phone with her, a small notepad and pen, cigarettes and a lighter, her brooch and a small hip-flask if it's been a particularly rough few days. Neve's brooch actually has an in-built camera, which she uses to capture footage covertly to boost her stories.
However, at work, Neve has access to cameras and studios that can broadcast to the whole country thanks to her connections at Hawk Media. She also has folders compiled filled with evidence of superheroes and CEOs doing disrespectful and scandalous things, planning to expose them to bring justice.
Neve has no superpowers.
However, she is relatively smart for someone of her age. She also excels well with people skills, being able to start a conversation with anybody and even charm them to get anything she needs (i.e. she can easily flirt with a man for information on a company or directions).
