Black hair stained dirty red above white-blue eyes often tempered by oval glasses; a pale scar splits my left eyebrow & back into my hairline above the ear. 5'4", lean, dry of wit & a bit on the quiet side.

Boots of a deep, dark hide, rather like that of a bear; her garments supple, functional to suit her lithe frame: pythonskin.

I joined the Mercs because I like the sport of it. I always give the mark a chance, though--don't bother with the coins if you think I'll make an exception. 2 out of 3 with the dice--they win, they walk. Then I hunt 'em again. Not because I'm crazy, or nice, or nice and crazy...

Just because I'm bored.


My name is Calliope Grieve, and my parents were Deadheads in the 60's who dropped a lot of acid. As a result, I'm the oldest daughter in a family of four girls who're all named after Greek muses: Melpomene, Thalia, Clio and me.

The first pet I ever had, a hamster, I named Steve. Throughout my life all of my pets have had normal names. My cat's name was Steve. He was an Abby (an Abyssinian) with a proclivity for Cheez-Wiz. I left him in the care of my sister Clio when I went to grad school for advanced Forensics. Oh yeah--I've been a cop for about 10 years, since I turned 20--but I'm kind of leaning toward forensic pathology as a career bent. I could always deal with messed up people much more easily than messed up pets. Pets don't know better. People do. Pets don't deserve abuse. Some people do. Especially the dead ones.

Don't get me wrongI’m not, like, a huge animal rights/fur is dead/save the fish freak. I eat meat. I hunt if my life depends on it. I’d rather eat a cheeseburger than tofu on any given day of the week. But people can be cruel. They have the capacity for evil that animals don’t. Animals do what comes naturally. People have agendas. That’s where the separation lies: we execute our atrocities willfully, giving them careful consideration before subjugating others to their ill effects. Animals just eat, screw and sleep when they’re not defending their territory. People plot.
