Agent Profile: Agent California
Setting: Pre Season 9
Current Status: Unknown
Name: Viktorya Reznov (She doesn't mind whether she is called by her last name or 'Cal', obviously short for California)
Role in Freelancer: Grenadier and explosives expert, Marksman, HALO expert, hacker and tech expert.
Apperance: Cal stands at around 5.9 feet tall, has long brown hair but it's usually tied up due to her helmet and armor, has blue eyes, and the easiest way to ID her without her armor is she has a small Freelancer insignia tattooed on her right cheek.
Armor: Cal's style of armor is the Mark V [B] with Scout helmet with gold visor color, a Commando Shoulder pad on her left arm, a ODST shoulder pad on her right arm, HP/Halo Chest piece, UA/Bracer strapped to her left wrist, a Tactical/Soft Case strapped to her left thigh, and wears Grenadier knee pads. Her Armor colors are Silver for primary, with Gold as the secondary color. When not in combat, she geared up with causal wear, which is a tank top, denim jeans and runners
Personality: Cal has a bit of a competitive side to her when it comes to either sporting activities or training with her fellow Freelancers, but when it comes to the missions, Cal puts that aside as she knows that trying to perform any fancy tricks or heroics will get you killed. With that, she knows all the tricks to stay alive in combat and, like Missouri, has a unbreakable resolve when it comes to ensuring that the mission is complete and that everyone makes it home in one piece. However, Cal isn't without her sensitive sides, for she is known to grieve for the loss of someone that she knew of very well, either a team mate or one of her close friends. When it comes to her fellow Freelancers, she tries to be friendly to all of them and also provides whatever help she can provide with any issue they have. Whilst she tries to be friends with everyone, her close friends are C.T., South Dakota, Carolina, York, Missouri, and Wyoming (however, like everyone else, she doesn't tolerate with Wyoming's knock-knock jokes). Cal also has a very keen interest in electronics and computers, which with this knowledge, has helped to have her qualified as a tech expert and hacker. Cal is capable of speaking 3 languages, which is Russian, English and Hungarian.
Weapons: Trained in use of all UNSC Firearms, but her signature weapon is the M319 Grenade Launcher, which she always has grenades on standby to use. Cal is also known to never waste a grenade when engaging enemy targets and due to it's secondary fuse, is capable of timing her detonation well, with devastating effects against both infantry and vehicles. Whilst she prefers the explosive fire power from the GL, she also carries a M392 DMR when she runs out of grenades. Cal has also proven herself well as a Marksman with the DMR and due to expertise with the Grenade Launcher, Cal is also capable of placing C-12 shaped charges in key areas and is also of capable of using it as a improvised grenades if in desperate situations.
Cal also carries a combat knife with this engraved on the blade: В случае сомнений: C-12, which mean 'When in doubt: C-12'.
Armor ability: Cal's armor ability is a modified Holographic Decoy. Works in the exact same way as the standard UNSC module, however, Cal saw that there was a very easy way to tell apart the holographic image of yourself and the real target, which is no holstered weapon. So what Cal did was modified the firmware to include this and also extended the timer for a holographic image from 10 seconds to around 30 seconds.
AI: Cal's AI that was given to her is Upsilon. This was Alpha's Resourcefulness once it was segregated from the main AI. After Upsilon was separated from Alpha, he immediately grew a deep interest with the technical systems on board the Mother of Invention and, despite their attempts to prevent the AI from studying their classified materials, Upsilon still managed to get past some of the strongest firewalls that were put up (yet somehow, Upsilon managed to not access what the Director was doing with his 'brothers' and 'sisters'). After the Director realized that there was little to stop the AI and also realizing that California had the same traits as Upsilon, he decided to pair up Cal and Upsilon, with the Director hoping that Cal be able to restrain Upsilon's curiosity in studding the technology on board. This turned out to be a very smart move as not only Cal was able to reign in Upsilon, but also with both of them having a deep interest in computers they are capable of overcoming any security system that either the Insurrection or the Covenant have set up. Upsilon's appearance is a American Delta Force soldier from 21st century and is occasionally seen with a ACR assault rifle. both the avatar of the trooper and the weapon are in a dark blue color.
History: Cal was born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 2522. Around 5 months after she was born, her family decided to move to Reach to experience what life would be like elsewhere than Earth and the end result was Cal grew up in New Alexandria. At around 19, and after the Human-Covenant War began, she volunteered for the UNSC forces and joined the UNSC Army on Reach. After joining the 1337th Battalion, part of the 34th Infantry Brigade, she spent a fair bit of time on patrol and also engaged with local Insurrectionists on Reach. Mind you, despite the morale from the losses in the Human-Covenant War and also having to deal with Insurrectionists, she was at least on her 'home' planet and that she did at least had time to learn more about how to work with different tech and also home in her skills with the Grenade Launcher and also took the opportunities she got to see her parents as she cared for them immensely, so much so that before she went to Freelancer, Cal made sure that her parent were relocated back to Moscow so that way they weren't killed on Reach, should the Covenant invaded the planet. At around 2545, and after multiple patrols, contacts with Innies, and starting to get bored of being on garrison duties, Cal was beginning to wonder why she didn't join the Marines or the ODSTs when she was joining. However, as luck would have it, Project Freelancer has reviewed her combat record in the Army and were amazed at what she was capable of. So at around 2548, Cal was recruited into Freelancer. After arriving on board the Mother of Invention, and receiving her combat armor, she was put into a simulation battle with fellow agents Washington, Maine, Florida and Vermont. During the fight, she had shown off what she had learned with the Grenade Launcher and also, when everyone else was failing to get past a security password on a terminal with classified information (in this case, was their main objective in this simulation) in either 60 seconds or without setting off an alarm, Cal managed to do it in 20 seconds and on her first go. This greatly impressed everyone and also her skills with the Grenade Launcher also cemented her loyalty with her new team mates. After seeing her skills, the Director also requested to see her skills with both hacking and also her skills with explosives, particularly with using C-12. Since then, Cal has been on multiple missions, some against the Covenant, and some more with Insurrectionists. Although she really didn't like fighting against Innies in the Army, since switching to Freelancer, she still has a distaste in it, but with the new gear she has access to, you wouldn't know it.
"Kto skazal, chto vy ne mozhete vzryvchatykh veshchestv na perestrelku?!" ("Who says you can't explosives to a gunfight?!") - One of Cal's humorous insults to the enemy before she engages them with her GL.
Carolina: "Ok, here's our terminal. How long will it take you to access it?"
California: "Hmmmm...... Looking at it, normally it would take about 90 seconds, but you can give me 20"
A brief chat between Carolina and California over hacking a computer terminal.
"Eto vot odno zadaniye vy ne mozhete srochno!" ("This here is one job you CAN NOT rush!") - Cal when it comes to her setting and arming Det charges.
"In my experience with using the Grenade Launcher, you have it set up and ready to go for the one right and well time detonation". - Cal discussing with a fellow Freelancer on her time in learning how to exploit the possibilities of her Grenade Launcher.
