Name

Ashley "Ash" Paulson

Concept

A sharp archive jockey

Aspects

Aspect 1: Urban Creature- She feels at home in man made (or seemingly manmade) environments, where she is better at hiding, navigating, and positioning. She isn't used to work outside of manmade environments.
Aspect 2: It's The Details That Matter- By her nature and training, she is very good at noticing and remembering the little details. When she feels like she's missed something, or is forgetting something, it can destroy her normal problem solving process.
Aspect 3: Document Junkie- Her background has left her very used to digging through mounds upon mounds of documentation in search of patterns or particular details, making her very good at extracting information from documents, or textual sources. She was never as good at extracting information from other sources, however.

Personal History

She had a fairly uneventful childhood in a fairly normal family, good academic performance in school and several top place finishes at gymnastics competitions. Upon graduation from grade school, she pursued a criminal justice career at University, continuing gymnastics in her spare time, and graduating among the top of her class. She then followed the footsteps of her father into a career as an FBI agent. She enjoyed a great deal of success in following paper trails and digging through documents to find leads and evidence, and this became her main function, though she also participated in field work on occasion. She was chosen by the Foundation during a routine round of recruitment, and served as a data analyst and archivist for several large sites, mostly in the Espionage department. Several years down the line she was transferred to site 354 to assist with maintenance and analysis of the archives.

Miscellaneous

  • She does not have OCD but is nonetheless very order oriented and irritated by disorganization.
  • She continued recreational gymnastics until her induction into Foundation.
  • She likes to write things down for reference later, and will almost always do this if able if she finds a fact important.
  • She is generally more approachable than it may seem at first.
  • She greatly enjoys lurking in maintenance tunnels, and other concrete places others don't venture. Watching others from such hidden places, or even just taking a walk there every once in a while has been a hobby of hers throughout her life.
  • Was a member of a civilian Urban Exploration club for a while.
  • She has a compact build, and is not overtly feminine. She typically wears dark clothing. She likes things with pockets. She has been mistaken for a dude before. She has a mysterious scar on her forehead, which is only immediately obvious when she puts on her reading glasses.
