IC Information
Character Name: June Darby
Character Canon: Transformers Prime
Character Age: 39
Character Gender: lady human
Canon Point: after her time at The Box; original canon point: after S2E03 (Orion Pax, Part 3)
Character Canon History: http://tfwiki.net/wiki/June_Darby
Character Personality: June Darby is strong-willed and extremely protective. Having raised her son mostly on her own since her husband walked out on them, she’s had to fend for herself and has had to pick up the slack, doing the work of two parents. She pretty much always speaks her mind and is never afraid to voice her opinion; generally, pissing other people off isn’t enough of a concern to deter her, especially if she thinks she’s in the right. And she often does -- June has a tendency to believe she knows best, and it can be difficult to convince her otherwise when she’s got her mind set on something, but given evidence to the contrary she can usually be persuaded. She’s self-sufficient and has learned to rely largely on herself; she’s a real take-charge kinda woman who has no qualms with telling other people what to do and so she tends to assume leadership positions if no one else steps up to the plate, but she doesn’t mind following if she respects the person in charge. She can be pretty sassy and contrary, and while she’s not totally fearless, she’s pretty damn brave. Her years of experience as an ER nurse (and just, you know, being June Darby) has made her pretty level-headed -- she keeps her cool in a crisis, and she doesn’t panic easily, even when she’s thrown out of her comfort zone. She isn’t a wild out-of-the-box thinker, but when presented with something totally foreign, she’ll at least try to figure it out with a level head, even if she tends to jump to conclusions based on what she does know.

Despite her capacity for being a hardass, she’s very much a caretaker -- not just as a mother and a nurse, but also as a friend. She loves her son and she gravitates towards kids or other people who are in need of a caretaker -- she’s definitely a mama hen type. June can be incredibly protective; she’d fight to the death for the people she cares about, especially if they’re kids -- especially if they’re her kid. June has a strong inner sense of responsibility, and she definitely feels responsible for those she loves and cares about, sometimes to a fault. She’s a pretty good listener when it comes down to it; she likes to give advice and help people through their problems.

June is a hard worker; between her job as an ER nurse and single-handedly raising her teenage son, she pushes herself pretty hard by the end of the day. She has a tendency to get wound a little too tightly when she’s under stress -- sometimes she forgets to decompress and relax, and it occasionally gets the best of her. She gets snappy and impatient when she’s stretched too thin, which usually means she needs a night unwinding in front of the TV -- a little wine never hurt anyone, either.

AU Information: June spent a few months at The Box and will be arriving at Saeng Seong with these memories intact. She spent a lot of time with the Transformers cast at The Box, as well as a few humans in particular, and worked at the human clinic there, putting her nursing skills to good use. For the most part, June is still very much herself, but she underwent a few fairly traumatic experiences while she was there which have certainly had an impact on her. During an evil twin event at The Box, she met her own twisted doppelganger, who had been posing as her and was responsible for one or two casualties among June’s close CR; the doppelganger tried to oust June out of her own social circle and murder her, and June, cornered, was forced to kill her in self-defense. She’s died twice -- the first, by cardiac arrest from a lightning strike, which upon her revival left her with Lichtenberg figure scars on her arms. Her second death comprises her last memories at The Box; June was inflicted with a degenerative pathogen that killed her after a few days of futilely attempting to treat it, although she did attempt to quarantine herself. It wasn’t very pleasant. Needless to say, June had a pretty rough time of it in The Box, missing her son and home both while dealing with a lot in the way of difficult and horrifying circumstances. This woman is going to need some serious cuddles.

Character Abilities:
MEDICAL TRAINING: June’s a registered nurse and she has been for almost twenty years; she’s not only got the know how, she has the experience to back up her skills. Most of her experience is in emergency treatment.
SELF DEFENSE: She’s had some basic self-defense training, but nothing fancy or very in-depth.

Character Inventory: All she really arrives with is a small purse with a few personal effects on it (keys, wallet, cell phone, mostly depleted small first-aid kit) and a homemade poncho given to her by Ultra Magnus at The Box.

Third Person Sample:
It was hard not to be anxious. June wasn’t usually an anxious person -- a little prone to worrying, maybe, but what mother wouldn’t be -- but anxious? No, she never had the time to sit around and fret. It was either take action or watch things fall apart in front of her, and honestly, that was how she liked it. It gave her the feeling that she had a modicum of control over her life, that she was in charge. That she could make things happen.

But sitting here in the Autobot base, unable to do anything but listen and wait for Jack and Arcee’s return from Cybertron, June’s at a loss. There’s nothing she can do here. Everything is in Jack and Arcee’s hands now -- the fate of Optimus Prime and so much more -- and while her son is exploring the dangerous ruins of an alien planet, all she can do is wait. She keeps pulling her hands through her hair, staring at the monitors, listening intently to every second of communications that come through from the two on Cybertron. She hadn’t wanted him to go -- someone else should have gone, not her sixteen-year-old son. This shouldn’t be his responsibility.

But Jack had decided for himself that he’d be the one to go, to bring the key to Vector Sigma. And June, for all it wrenched in her chest, for all she feared something awful was going to happen to him -- when he’d marched through the ground bridge in that space suit, in that moment, she had been proud. Prouder than she’d ever been, she thought. And it still hurt -- it hurt like having something torn away from her -- because she’d always known it’d be hard to let him go. She just didn’t think she’d have to let him go so soon -- or that she’d have to let him go to another planet.

Agent Fowler hedgingly asked if she was all right when she’d paced her two hundredth lap around the platform, running her fingers through her now-disheveled ponytail, if she needed anything, and she only shook her head, lips pursed. When she stared at the ground bridge, brow creased in what Jack always called her mom look (but he called everything her mom look), so hard she thought she could send him walking right back through it through sheer force of will, she finally sighed, shaking her head.

“All I need is for my son to come back in one piece, Agent Fowler. And that’s...up to him now.”

Items on your character at canon point: All she’ll have on her is her hospital scrubs and a sweater, with a small purse containing the following personal effects: wallet, keys, cell phone, small first-aid kit.
Abilities, Strengths and Weaknesses:
ABILITIES
MEDICAL TRAINING: June’s a registered nurse and she has been for almost twenty years; she’s not only got the know how, she has the experience to back up her skills. Most of her experience is in emergency treatment.
SELF DEFENSE: She’s had some basic self-defense training, but nothing fancy or very in-depth.

STRENGTHS
STRONG WILLED: June knows when to put her foot down, and how. She can be about as stubborn as they come once she’s got her mind set on something.
MOM: She’s been a single mom for the last several years, raising her teenage son Jack on her own. She can be the empathetic, caring mama hen, or she can be the mother who sees through all your flimsy teenage lies. See above about putting her foot down.
COOL HEADED: June is an ER nurse -- she knows how to maintain her cool in a tight situation. She doesn’t panic easily.

WEAKNESSES
STUBBORN: See above about strong-willed -- while it’s an asset, it can also be a huge hindrance. June often likes to believe she knows what’s best and is difficult to convince otherwise when she’s set on something.
HUMAN: She’s an ordinary human being, which means she’s squishy and not too difficult to kill.

Network/Action Spam Sample: actionspam with TFP Ratchet
