|Occupation: Quinn is a hunter who usually works alone. Not that she hates people or is a loner, Quinn just isn't very open and so other hunters usually just leave her alone unless she seeks them out first.|
|Skills: Quinn definitely excells at gathering information and seeing the minor details most people overlook. She's great at staying unseen, but is ready to step out of her comfort zone if need be. She keeps a good poker face, is surprisingly talented at shooting pool, and can identify most types of guns and knives, too. Quinn can hold her own in a fight. Most importantly, though, Quinn had been interested in the medical field for years. She's is gifted at patching up a scrape.|
|Flaws/phobia(s): Quinn is far from perfect. She's shy and untrusting. She uffers from Agateophobia--the fear of insanity--and Automatonophobia. Dummies scare the hell out of her. Also, Quinn is near-sighted, she pretty much always wears glasses. Although it's not really a phobia or serious character flaw, Quinn hates young hunters. Not that she hates them specifically, but she hates that they made the choice. It kills her to see young people throw their lives away to live this kind of life, and she hates it even more when they choose to do it alone. She knows that inexperience will get you killed. And no matter how much you trained yourself, a young hunter is always inexperienced.|
|Character Backstory/ if a hunter, how did [he/she] get into the job?|
| Quinn was a very young child when she first noticed the presence of the Supernatural world, although it was years later before she was finally able to make some sense it. Her parents split up when Quinn was five. Her mother (Lena) had ran off and no one would explain to Quinn why, but she heard phrases such as "psychotic episode" and "paranoid schizophrenic" often used by the grown-ups when describing the situation. Two years later, Lena had come back for her child, taking her in the dark of the night.|
Everything changed drastically then. Although she had loved and missed her mother, Quinn was also terrified and confused. Lena's incessant ramblings didn't make any sense. She called her father a monster and evil. But Quinn knew her father and loved him well. Lena also talked about other evil beings, things that Quinn didn't understand.
For two weeks, Lena and Quinn were on the run for their lives, although Quinn still didn't understand why. When her father finally found them, Lena began screaming and ripping her hair out from her skull, either not feeling or not caring about the pain. Quinn was lost and confused, and she didn't know who to go to. And so the three went home, although Lena was soon taken away in a white jacket.
Years later, when Quinn was sixteen, she discovered what happened. Her mother was insane, a lunatic. The others at school found out and teased Quinn. They said that she, too, was crazy, because lunacy is hereditary. After a while, Quinn tarted to believe them. She started having dreams, crazy things that she could never understand. And she kept seeing things, a girl who had drowned a year earlier.
This is how she was introduced to the Supernatural world. The girl was indeed a ghost, although it was some time before Quinn knew and understood that. A woman in her late thirties had come, and, when Quinn caught her digging through a graveyard for bones, told Quinn everything. Together they unraveled the mystery of a young girl's "accidental" drowning, and laid the spirit to rest forever.
Quinn tried to talk about it, but her friends betrayed her, not wanting to associate with a loon. But her father, though he never openly spoke of it, taught Quinn things she would need to kow--how to fight, weapon identification, and, most importantly, how to own a game of poker.
Two years later, Quinn found the woman again, Anette. They hunted together for the better part of five years. Until Quinn lost the closest thing to a mother she ever had.
Anette's death was difficult for Quinn, almost unbearable. But she's managed to get passed it and ignore the pain. It had been nearly three years since Anette was killed, and Quinn has been pretty much alone ever since. She doesn't like to get too close to people.
So here she is now, hunting. Trying to get on with her life.
