Name: Julia Barnes

Age: 16

Appearance/Weight: Information and appearance can be found here

Personality: Prior to the outbreak, Julia was a relatively happy, playful girl who wanted nothing more than to enjoy life. She’s always been the kind of girl whose resilience could withstand anything. Her world was exciting—not because she was naïve, but because she chooses to see the good in things. Since the outbreak began, she’s gotten a little more sobered up, but her resilience and uncommon maturity has persevered. She has a good head on her shoulders, and uses it. She copes by setting up goals and combats stress by challenging herself physically. Her downfalls are that she’s empathetic and, every once in a while, the situation gets to her. Julia needs people, and being alone literally runs her up the wall.

Former Employment: High School Student, Waitress at family-owned restaurant

Hobbies: hiking, swimming (just being outside), reading, writing (has no skill whatsoever), puzzles, photography, quoting things (movies, books, the likes); she was never keen on horror films unless they focused on the psyche or were realistically possible

History: Her childhood was nothing abnormal. She was born to two loving parents, who together owned a small restaurant in South Lake Tahoe. She attended the public schools that serviced her area, had her fair share of enemies, and lived a pleasant life. There were hardships, there were happy times, but it wasn’t uncommon or outstanding. Just like any teen, her tween years sucked, but she’s recently begun to pull out of it. She used to be a real scrapper, getting in fights with the really catty girls at her school, but after getting into high school, she has attempted to clean up her act. (Currently a sophmore.) Now sixteen, with a car and substantially more freedom, Julia tends to take weekend excursions from time-to-time.

Bravery: 5. She isn’t as brave as most, she just knows what has to be done—it’s either her or the zombies, in Julia’s eyes, and she’d rather like to live.

Equipment: (a simple list of what you are carrying with a description if needed)
~1 Subaru Impreza (16th birthday gift from her dad, relatively old) that seats 5.
~1 Jansport backpack (formerly powder blue, forever dirtied by years of use)

On Her Person’s
~1 semi-automatic pistol**
~1ammo belt/ gun holster (holds 2 dozen bullets)**
**Let's say that she acquires said gun and so forth later and doesn't have it yet. Julia doesn't have any experience with guns and would rather not use them, but they are a situational necessity.

In the Car
~1 incredibly large Mag Light
~an assortment of candies that don’t melt (hidden in compartment below passenger seat)
~3 large water bottles (for the airshow)
~2 dozen CD's
~1 baseball bat (took her brother to and from practice, he left his gear in the car)
~and some typical car stuff… spare tire, old magazines, et cetera

In the Backpack
~1 notebook (unused)
~half a dozen ball point pens
~a relatively new paperback book
~her CD Player and headphones
~approx. four CD's
~cell phone
~1 small bottle of hand sanitizer
~1 pack of gum
~1 small water bottle
~small bottle of Tylenol

Read the RP background a little, it should explain that you've all taken shelter in a military base so you'd obviously arm yourselves despite your slight safety. Nothing lasts forever.

Oh ok then, I thought that maybe you would assign weapons and stuff in game instead of allowing us to just come up with whatever weapons we can come up with.

Wouldn't that limit you to, you know, weapons the military would have in an armory?

They don't exactly hold on to buffets of choice.

My CS is slowly coming together, though for some reason I'm not having much inspiration, despite wanting to be in this RP.
Final Fantasy IX was the best Final Fantasy game ever and if you think otherwise you are WRONG!

Isn't that the point of a survival game? You have to make do with what you have?

No, I'm saying will he enforce that?

Or will he just let you choose whatever regardless?

Lets put some limits on WHAT are inside of this military barracks.

Since it was relatively abandoned there will only be a a few handguns with 3 clips each of 12 shots, there is a light machine gun with 1 clip of ammunition and a hand grenade for each of you.
Since this is Las Vegas I assume your all packing a knife of some sort.
There are numerous blunt objects that were used to repair vehicles or move debree from around the base (Think construction stuff).
Take your pick.

Beretta M9s, huh?
Odd to assume they all have knives, but ok.
I must admit though, interesting to give them a LMG rather than assault rifles. I assume by clip you mean one belt.

Eh, I'm still conflicting over what Patty's gonna have on her.

She is definitely keeping the kitchen knife though. No question about it.

And slicing out your eyeballs.

Whenever anyone makes a kitchen joke to me, I say that my heels are bigger than their penors. Just sayin'.

And I have NO CLUE as to what kind of character Imma pull out of my ass this time. Maybe a college softball player. YUS

Meh, Patty's role in this RP is essentially similar to what my role would be in my little group if a zombie apocalypse happens, the girl that makes sure the group is well feed (I would be the one to keep people sane as well, but someone took that role). So I can deal with the kitchen jokes.

Yeah.
Though really, if you only got one 200-round belt, they'll need to be some bullet rationing on it....

Just a short little detail about the rage-infected and the regular Zombie's.

Rage infected: Will not die to a shot to the head immediatly, upwards of 10 minutes depending on the cerebral damage. Their brains are not 100% required so you're better to incapacitate the legs and execute it by removing it's head. Solitary hunters in general so fear of swarm is low.

Reanimated: If killed with a gunshot or some other form of weaponry it will become a mindless and slow moving corpse, incapable of running or climbing or even walking up/down stairs but are always in a pack. These die rather easily.

More to come.
