25-year-old Roxana Perry had studied medicine through most of her young adult life. She was born and raised on the outskirts of Paris with her parents and younger sister, Zara Perry, and had shown a great deal of potential at a young age. Her father was killed by Raiders when she was 8 years old, and her mother later succumbed to ovarian cancer when she was 14. She had been admitted into the University of Paris when she was 17 years old, and proceeded to spend the next six years as a student and intern at the local hospital. When she was 24, she was transferred to the newly rebuilt City of Lisbon to be a permanently-stationed nurse, taking her little sister with her so that she might be able to continue looking after her. She caught the attention of one Isaak Mamonov, a Russian man who was working for the Government at the time, and the two began dating. Unfortunately, it hadn't been long after their move that Lisbon was overrun by Raiders and transformed from a peaceful, lively City into a dilapidated underworld. Renamed Cidade dos Mortos, it had been perhaps Isaak's influence that had been the only thing that spared her. Sadly, his "influence" turned out to not only be in Government politics, but also in his work with the Moscow mafia.
In a last ditch effort to save herself and her sister, Roxana killed Isaak via lethal injection, and attempted to escape the City with Zara and information on various Government employees who had also been working with Moscow. Just before they made it out, they were cut off by a group of Raiders that had been hired by the Rostislav family to kill her and reclaim the information. Roxana was forced to leave her sister and the incriminating documents behind to escape the City alone. Now, she wanders the wastes as a medic, disguising her identity with the clever use of gas masks and
boob tapebaggy clothes. She offers her services for a reasonable fee to anyone who seeks it, but is constantly armed with a variety of knives and a single pistol that belonged to her late boyfriend.
I'm looking for friends, acquaintances, or people she's helped out before! She's a bit standoffish and hardly approachable, but she definitely cares about the well-being of most people who wander the wastes. She might also have travelled with a variety of different groups, though she very rarely willingly goes around with Raiders or Rebels. She does have a bunch of enemies in the mafia, I'm sure, as well as a bounty on her head so... anyone who happens to be a bounty hunter or something will likely have heard of her.
