Physical Description A striking woman, Delaney exhibits all the hallmarks of someone who is prepared to sacrifice breakfast to ensure her hair sits exactly as intended but, in many ways, she is far less careful about her actual appearance than she is about the digital representations she designs. Delaney might enjoy looking good but manages to wear 'hot mess' with generally higher spirits than the vanity-driven airhead people might be tempted to assume she is. She is mostly healthy, aside from the occasional recreational drug and alcohol use, which is probably more important, and has several small tattoos tucked away for private consumption only.

Personality & Traits

General Overview People often comment that Delaney seems effortlessly charming. Daring, quick-witted, with a sultry confidence that adds to her guile, she is, however, occasionally accused of having limited tact and has a very forthright struggle to suffer fools quietly. Indeed, Delaney exhibits a general sense of impatience with anyone prone to what she considers to be hyper-sensitivity. Growing up the youngest and only girl in a fairly typical Irish family has gifted her a preference for those who have a thick skin, and though she is by no means intentionally unkind, she is also not particularly good at offering empty platitudes. Time spent on fretting is time wasted, after all.

Delaney extends this blunt optimism to her own life and, as a result, doesn't often suffer lapses in confidence or self-belief. To some, it might present as arrogance and she certainly has the capacity to come across as overly sure of herself, but her expectations of herself are rarely too inflated and what possibly saves her from becoming unbearable is that she stops short of outright conceit and boasting. Delaney isn't the type to seek accolades, just as she isn't really the type to seek approval from outside opinions as much as it's obviously nice to be valued and appreciated. She can be competitive for the thrill of the race but, ultimately, doesn't rate her own value as being a ranking amongst an arbitrary selection of peers.

Interestingly enough, Delaney also has a quiet, introspective side that is often reflected in the stories she creates. It is not unusual for her to seek time alone, or to enjoy the privacy of more intimate interactions with a softer, almost tender approach that can be surprising at first. This does not excuse her from passionate outbursts, however, and her temper, once ignited, is a wildfire; swift, destructive and unapologetic. It is actually very rare for Delaney to admit fault, preferring instead to just continue as if nothing had happened. She can be decidedly resolute in this, to the point of being stubborn, and it has been a feature of her life since childhood that Delaney does not handle failure very well. If she can't deny it, she either defaults to outrage or brooding.

Ambitions In a universe of possibilities, it's impossible to narrow down everything Delaney would like to achieve, though she would quite like to own her own ship one day.
Hobbies & Interests Delaney is an accomplished holo-novelist, with a current library of just over 70 titles in her repertoire. Of some controversy is a subset of adventures marketed at a more mature audience, in which depictions of Delaney herself feature in a variety of supporting roles. They are predictably her most popular works, having earned her a degree of infamy, and quite an expansive fanbase, if not a little niche.
Sexual Orientation Heterosexual
Language(s) Spoken Federation Standard, some Gaelic

History

Personal History Delaney's family own and operate one of the largest privately-owned shuttle companies operating out of Ireland. As a result, she grew up wearing wings, as she is wont to explain it, and is usually happiest when at the helm.

Generally considered a bright and capable student, Delaney is the only one in her family who opted to attend university rather than head directly into the family business and, as a result, has a proven track record in Operations and Logistics that she felt threatened to ground her if she stayed home and inherited a control room that thrived on all the wrong kinds of chaos. There is a vague expectation that she will probably return home one day, but for the time being, she has been content with shift work with the transit network in Freecloud for the past year and recently hopped aboard Rosie for a change of pace and scenery.

Her primary billet is Security, where she gets the super fun job of also being an Operations adjunct attempting to maintain a decent armoury despite her skills in software engineering, though she has been known to fly a shuttle or two when needed, and may even pull a shift or two at the helm if things get really spicy.
