Relationships

Aviators avi2_icon.gif While Jensen Raith recognized Rue's talents, and Hana Gitelman honed them, it was Avi Epstein who recruited Rue to Wolfhound. Rue feels a kind of connection to him that she can't quite explain, but knowingly chalks much of it up to shared trauma. He has her unwavering loyalty, whether he returns it or not. While she obviously cares for him a great deal, it's hard to say if she really has feelings for him, or if she plays it up because it's part of her persona. She's unlikely to demystify that in either direction.

Also they can have a conversation consisting entirely of the word "fuck" and perfectly understand one another.
The Major hana_icon.gif Hana took Rue on as an apprentice of sorts back on Pollepel Island. What Rue lacked in experience, she made up for in enthusiasm. Intimidation is still definitely a factor when it comes to Major Gitelman, but respect tends to rule Rue's interactions with her most often these days. There is no one Rue trusts to do the right thing more than Hana. Even if the right thing isn't going to be a good thing for Rue.
Bestie noa_icon.gif New leader of Wendigo. A lot has changed over the years, but Noa is still Rue's best friend. She's the most likely to see glimmers of the old Rue than anyone else. Rue trusts Noa to keep her grounded and remind her that she's not just the act she puts on.

Miscellany

She is Beauty: Before the bomb, Rue had a very promising career in modeling. She has poise and is very much in possession of the unique skill set of a professional model, but she puts that to use now to be a pretty, unassuming face in a crowd. The role of the vacuous young woman sometimes causes people to let their guard down around her.

She is Grace: While not nearly so good as Samara, Rue studied ballet alongside her friend for many years. She still practices on her own, though more as a means of exercise and conditioning. While she feels that it's a somewhat childish hobby at times, it is a source of stress relief.

She Will Punch You in the Face: In her time with the Ferry, Hana trained Rue to defend herself. What she lacked in intuitive skill, she made up for in determination. She redoubled her efforts during the war, and can hold her own in a fair fight.

Take a Shot: Before the war, Rue was learning her way around firearms. She specialized in long-range rifles, and while she's not the best, she's more than simply an adept sniper.

Linguistic Inflection: This used to be a party trick. Now, it's another tool in her arsenal for deception. Rue is exceptional at mimicking people and accents.

I've Covered Wars, You Know: Making a snapshot compelling is a delicate art. Rue and her camera documented many of the atrocities of the war, but also the hopeful moments. She knows how to pick out what's important and frame it to evoke a response. She also knows how to be surreptitious with her shots, when the situation calls for it.

Talent(ed) Scout: Staying out of sight and out of trouble is the name of the game when it comes to reconnaissance. How to blend in with a crowd, where the best places to perch and hide may be, taking note of the exits in any given space are all useful things to know. She can pick a lock with the right tools to grant herself access to the places she needs to be.

Trivia

Known To Most

  • Rue was a member of the Ferrymen. She had a reputation for being sunny and friendly to everyone. A beacon of hope and light in the darkness of their awful situation. That isn't her reputation anymore. A veteran of the Second Civil War, she testified at the tribunals in Albany about the atrocities committed against Evolved refugees just trying to find peace both before and during the war.
  • Footage exists of a woman with curly ginger hair pulling children from a canal during the raid on the Commonwealth Institute in Cambridge, MA on November 8, 2011. It's a clip that's been played many times over the years, and Rue has admitted in printed interviews that she was that woman. She has refused to talk about that day on camera outside of the Albany Trials.

Known To Some

  • Rue was once an aspiring ballerina. She had better success as a model, having appeared in ad campaigns in Chicago from 1988 to 2006, and in New York from 2008 to 2010. She never achieved much notoriety, but some of her old photo shoots and commercials have been archived on the internet if one wants to search.
  • Formerly registered as a Tier 1 Evolved with Limited Telepathy. While not actually SLC-Expressive, she has the ability to see her best friend, Samara, when she phases out of reality. This is a residual effect from when Samara caused them both to phase at ground zero, saving both of their lives from the bomb. No one is certain how this works or why.
  • Has been caught on camera snogging Avi Epstein.

Known To Few

  • A survivor of the original explosion in Midtown on November 8, 2006, Rue spent a year recovering from the effects of radiation poisoning that should have claimed her life.
  • The non-Evolved strain of the H5-N10 flu nearly killed her in 2011. This is how she discovered she was not herself SLC-E.
  • Allergic to pistachios, carries an epipen in her bag.
