Bio: As a child, Riley Foster did not take well to being alone. Growing up with two older brothers, one older sister, she was never unaccompanied for the first few years of her life, until the nuclear war began. The first person she lost was her mother, a military woman who went to war and never returned, the first Riley added to her tally, though not permanently on her skin until years later. Her father, an overly paranoid ex-marine, knew exactly what to do in the event of a global catastrophe, and managed to keep his children alive throughout the war, only to emerge and be killed himself by one of many airborne diseases, along with Riley’s sister, Teresa, and her oldest brother, Finn.
Riley and her only remaining sibling, Vincent, were unaffected, and began their journey across the country in search of civilization. At eighteen years old, She’d already seen far more death and destruction than she’d care for, and she wasn’t finished yet. An attack by Walkers left her final family member worse than dead, and her mortally wounded and fighting to stay alive in a place that wasn’t conducive at all to survival. Still, she got by, tended to her wounds, and made somewhat of a name for herself as a skilled survivalist, primarily by means of stealing and killing, becoming desensitized to the horrors of having to survive in the present climate. So she traveled, hunted, and stole, killing only when necessary and always searching out other people, in need of human interaction, which is when she came upon the Spectres, the travelling bunch of survivors that she now belongs to.
She’s by no means stupid, and in fact very intuitive and perceptive, well aware of the fact that the moment there is any semblance of order, there will be politics. In a situation like this, it wasn’t going to be pretty, either. However, she hates the idea of the power plays of politics, and she’s completely convinced that the first ‘government’ after the disasters will be terribly corrupt. She can never resist a challenge, and more often than not puts in 110% into whatever she does. While vibrantly intelligent, very and logical, Riley often makes decisions with her heart more than her brain, and is often impulsive. She’s lethal in combat, but prefers to downplay her abilities for the most part, even if she can throw a knife fifty feet with pin-point accuracy and can throw a punch nearly as hard as any of the men in the group, and prefers to stay behind the curtains of whatever important things are happening.
- Carries around an obscene amount of concealed weapons, just in case.
- Regardless of being surrounded by people, Riley rarely gets close to anyone.
