FULL NAME: Sarah Steel
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Despite being thirty years of age, Sarah Steel's wealth allows her to afford the various treatments that allow her to look five years younger; a signal of financial privilege in these bad times. With silky-smooth skin and long, flowing hair, as well as a surprisingly strong body, Sarah is a vision of loveliness further enhanced by a sharp gaze. She moves with a confident, almost arrogant set of movements, with full knowledge that she rouses jealousy in others by doing so...
PERSONALITY: Sarah Steel lives for one thing: The survival of her family, which for now is the same as the survival of her company. A stern and forceful businesswoman, she can be ruthless if she has to, but knows when to compromise when it gets her something. As befits her profession as a weapons manufacturer, she is interested in the latest technology that can be used for small arms and light artillery, as well as any new tech that can lead to a rise in trade. For trade, to Sarah, brings money, and money brings power, power that will allow her to sustain her family...
BACKSTORY: Sarah Steel was born to a gunsmith and his merchant wife, who were well-to-do citizens of Urbanesc, one of Tolmhaven's rival cities. An unusually strong woman even when young, Sarah became the hope of her family when her parents were only able to concieve daugthers, five in all in addition to her. And so Sarah was well-educated in both the crafting, the use, and the sale of guns, along with other subjects vital to a businesswoman who aspired to the upper class. All the while, her parents lifted their business up to new heights, banding with other gunsmiths and merchants to form the Gunmakers' Guild of Urbanesc.
Then, her parents were killed in an explosives accident, leaving her with a small fortune... And five sisters that needed to be cared for. So Sarah focused her energies on expanding her parents' business and her fortune, while at the same time making sure to spend some time with her silings. She also began travelling abroad more and more, going from city to city via airship in order to arrange business deals. All the while, part of her yearns for security, security that would allow her to spend more time with her family. But alas, that seems like a pipe dream, unless some unusual opportunity comes...
DESCRIPTION: Beautiful lady weapons manufacturer/merchant who runs an expanding business. Has five sisters. Well-educated and knows how to use her own guns.
SKILLS: Sarah has been taught how to shoot, maintain, and manufacture guns, as well as the arts of barganining and commerce. She can also act like a proper lady if needed, albeit with some hardness in her manner. Basically, anything that has to do with making money and acting like an upper-class person, she is probably good at.
QUIRKS: Despite her strength and use of guns, Sarah's combat effectiveness is limited; she hasn't killed a person before. She also tends to try and throw money at everything, assuming that would get her what she wants. She also can't cook, can't maintain airships, and is bad at anything that requires manual labor except maintaining and crafting guns.
