She has medium length brown hair and crystal blue eyes. She is commonly seen wearing her old police uniform, which is severely damaged and dirty but still features the Chicago police insignia on her shoulders. Along her waistline is a utility belt that features a holster for a service pistol and a variety of clip on areas for various items including handcuffs and a baton. She has a small, 10mm GSW in between her eyes... Spoiler: Equipment Spoiler: Beretta Model 92 This standard issue police Beretta Model 92 has seen some wear and tear over the period of it's service. There is scratch marks across most edges and it looks a little chaffed. It however has a custom engraving in the pistol grip that makes out the 'Ace' symbol from a deck of cards. The gun itself is usually holstered on her utility belt. Spoiler: Handcuffs These handcuffs have clearly been used multiple times, with dried blood on the inside of the cuffs themselves. They would be seen dangling off her utility belt. Spoiler: Police Baton The extendable baton has some wear and tear to it, with marking of all kinds scattered across the weapon. The handle itself was mostly immaculate however. The baton would be seen attached to her utility belt. Spoiler: Police Utility Belt The police utility belt looked new, it had various places to attach tools and weapons and a few areas to store small items. On the right hip was the holster for her Beretta Model 92 and on her left was an area for her baton and handcuffs. Spoiler: Police Uniform This Chicago Police Uniform had seen far better days and looked like it had been through the mill a few times. The uniform itself had faded stains of dirt on various points of the uniform, one of the buttons was missing and the seams along the arms had a few tears on them. However, the uniform itself still held the Chicago PD insignia on its shoulder and its badge. Her pants were in the same state as her shirt. Her boots looked new with a few scuff marks on the tips. Spoiler: Police Vest The police vest looked a little worn out and slightly used, but it was relatively clean for the most part and seemed to redeem how dirty her uniform was. There were a few markings across the black surface but the armor itself looked mostly intact. Spoiler: Backpack The bag blended with her vest. It was a small pack and was clearly designed for light operations. It had two separate pouches which often led to poor organisation of item storage. Spoiler: Personality Ella has experienced a lot of trauma and violence through her life. Serving as a police officer and almost losing her life had already created problems for her socially. The subsequent firebombings of Chicago and loss of her boyfriend to a psychopath has left her feeling quite empty. Yet she still believes that following the law is the only way to ensure the reconstruction of civilization. Story: Spoiler: Pre-Apocalpse 21st of October, 2017, 11:34PM, Chicago As she stepped out of her patrol vehicle she quickly looked around at her surroundings. It was quiet, peaceful and it had been all night up till this point. She stood there for a moment, looking at the Ford GT in front of her. It was painted matte red with a while stripe down the middle and she had just pulled it over for going 80 mph in a 40 zone. She sighed, closing her door as she began to approach the vehicle. She began considering which of the frequent bullshit excuses the driver was going to use to explain his speed. As she reached the driver window she bent down and tapped her knuckle on the window, gesturing for the driver to roll the window down for her. After a moment of nothing the driver finally rolled down the tinted window. "License and regi-" She freezes for a split second, spotting the passenger with a Kalashnikov as he began to exit the vehicle. Time seemed to slow down for a brief moment as the driver pulled out his Glock 17 and fired at single shot at her as she began to move back for cover. It was at this moment she recognized who the driver was, Luiz Lordez, he was connected to the murder of two officers only a few days ago and had multiple felony warrants out for his arrest. The first shot from Luiz struck Ella in her left forearm, she didn't feel it at the time as the adrenaline kept her going. As she reached the midpoint between her patrol car and the Ford GT the passenger was finally in a position to fire the Kalashnikov, he fired off a short three round burst at Ella, where it struck her beneath the stomach. Her body armor managed to suck up a lot of the energy from the round, but it still ended up passing through and lodging inside. She fell backwards, behind the front of her patrol car where she was out of sight from the passenger. She finally manages to get her gun out of its holster and ends up firing half a dozen rounds in Luiz's direction, striking him in the chest 3 times. Ella began crawling backwards as she expected the passenger to come around the corner of her patrol car. The adrenaline had almost disappeared and the pain of both gunshot wounds was excruciating. She keeps her gun raised towards Luiz's position at all times, but the passenger never showed himself as she expected him to. The sound of distant sirens could be heard but it all came down to a matter of time now. Blood was soaking into her uniform and she was beginning to feel light-headed as the pain became nearly unbearable. The sirens grew to the point where they were deafening and the sound of tires skidding on the road behind her could be heard. At this point the weight of the gun became too heavy for her injured arm to hold and she ended up dropping her gun on the ground as her body litterly collapsed. The sounds of shouting and a dozen or so gunshots could be heard as her vision began to fade. The last thing she saw before she passed out was the blurry figure of someone running towards her. Spoiler: Report Form Spoiler: Post-Apocalpse Spoiler: The Chicago Exodus Date: Spoiler: The Spring Valley Community The group had been on the road for nearly 2 weeks now, having narrowly escaped the burning inferno that was now Chicago. Everyone was tired, every town, every city was falling or had fallen to this infection and the hope of the people was dying quickly. The next stop on the road was a small town called Spring Valley, a little bit outside Chicago. As they drove into town, most people picked up on the fact that the entire town was almost untouched and untapped of resources. As the only surviving police officer from Chicago, the people looked up to Ella for some form of guidance, as much as it troubled her. She didn't like the idea of leading, especially when lives were on the line, she constantly worried about all the things that could go wrong. Spoiler: The Renegades The sound of large, rumbling engines could be heard in the distance, growing louder and louder with ever growing minute. Ella quickly made her way to the main gate with the entire community being distracted by the sounds of engines, as she mounted the gate catwalk she spotted the source, about a half dozen military and modified civilian vehicles were sitting at the gate, with about three dozen soldiers or militia men, it was hard to tell the difference, standing with guns lowered and watching up at the guards on the gate. One man, who wore black armor with white painted in a cross on his breast and back plate slowly approached the gate with a wicked smile on his face, "Well hello there!" He called out in a cheerful mood, "My name is Edward Graves and these people," He gestures towards his group, "Are the 'Renegades'" Ella paused for a moment, studying the man and his companions. They were armed to the teeth. Most had AR's and heavy duty military equipment. In the back was an humvee with an M2 machine gun slightly elevated and raised above the walls in a non-threatening manner. It was slightly worrying as if they had come to raid they stood little chance at stopping them. "I've come to provide you my skills and assets to help defend this settlement" Graves said in a humble and friendly tone, "Don't worry I'm not here to steal or kill you. We are simply looking for a place where our assets and skills will be useful" Ella ponders for a moment, before disappearing back down to the bottom of the walls.
