Since having the availabilty of the MUTE suit (MAv3PE unit), Bridget has found herself being out and about even more, whether it be roof hopping as MUTE or walking the streets to her jobs, or hangouts. She tends to hang around Clinton a lot. She tends to be quite friendly unless given reason not to be.

Known as a respected researcher with a focus in robotics for the assistance of the handicapped. Often acts as a guest lecturer for those who wish to to pay for her time. Part time Paramedic for NYFD and 'analyst' for the United Nations.

Bridget's research results


Description:

At 5'8", Bridget would be considered slightly above average in height by normal standards. However, being that this is marvelverse where normalcy is abnormalcy, her height doesn't mean anything other than it's easy for her to go into rooms with 6 ft doorways. To add to the ability of managing doorways, she is of a rather, lean, but physically capable build.


Powers:

Super memory: Physical and Mental

She has the ability to memorize anything she reads or observes the first time being exposed to it as well as apply the newfound knowledge in real life. Want her to program something? Give her a printout of the computer's code library on the desired programming language to read and by the end of the day you should have the program you desire. Want her to learn morse code?… no problem… she read through a book on that a few years ago for the heck of it. Want her to perform neurosurgury? Well… um… if you have no access to a real neurosurgeon… she’ll do. You just won’t have that cutesy little degree to look at for reassurance.

The ability gives her the knowledge of how to do things and can point her in the right direction… however there are certain things that you can't do just by observing it. She may be able to mimic the moves of martial artists (if she took the time to observe them), but without practice, she won’t have the strength to back up such moves. (Don’t expect her to be throwing people from the get go)

Movement and thought can be learned quickly, Gaining strength to be effective is another matter.

MUTE suit (MAv3PE)

An adaptation of the projectMA research project she did with New York University. It is a suit which provides the following: vertical jump 10 feet from standing position; lifting of 1,850 lbs; counts as Type IIIA body armor; removable lining for washing. (Yay! No stink!); additional manuverability; designed to work only for Mute.


Skills:

Finances, Computers, Forgeries, Speedreading, Cooking,
Languages: English, Spanish, German, Latin, Russian, Greek, Italian, French
Fighting Capabilities: Tumbling, Hitting vulnerable spots, breaking basic holds and turning them on the attacker, marksmanship, sneak attacks, A mixture of other fighting styles.


History:

Bridget comes from a very smart family. VERY smart. Education is their legacy and they take the matter very seriously. She grew up in what other kids would call, deprived. There was only one TV and it had no cable. (Oh the HORROR!) Game Systems? HAH! No. The only source of entertainment were the educational toys and family board games they had each night. If she didn’t wish to do that, her other options were to study, read, play outdoors, cook, or sleep. She played outdoors a lot with her friends. But as they grew older, her friends spent less and less time outside as they entertained themselves with game systems or were busy trying to tackle the growing amount of homework the schools assigned them. As a result, Bridget resorted to confinement as well. Spending her free time reading. With the ease of learning, she could finish her homework quickly which lead to a lot of free time.

Due to her ability, she excelled in her classes with little effort. She ended up taking the full assortment of AP courses offered at her high school and earned several academic scholarships as well as membership in several of her school’s honor societies. Eventually she went to New York University. She has earned degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics, Science, and Education. (Overachievement much?) She is still in college furthering her education in the Computer Science area with a large focus on robotic programming in general.

Along with the helping with the instruction of incoming computer science students, she is also working as a part time New York City Paramedic. This she considers her hobby and during the lulls in her job she can be seen writing random blurbs of code down on a small notebook she keeps with her.

Her family is alive and well with the exception of her father who passed away from complications of open heart surgery. She is an only child which leaves just her mom to keep in contact with. Her mom is still living in Georgia
