Coby Paulina Winter
Coby is ambitious and totally foreign to the word "cautious". She'll readily bite off something that should be way more than she can chew - but usually, she really is that good. She's always ready to accept a challenge, especially if it involves danger and close-calls. She needs constant stimulation; if she gets bored, watch out. She'll be almost crazy.
She is extremely calm in a situation, and respects authority. She's good, and she knows it wholeheartedly; "humility" is not a word to ever describe her. She never gives up, and she is amazingly clever and a swift thinker.
Coby was born in Delaware to a shifter father and a human mother. "Always be on the lookout" ; "never talk to strangers" ; "anyone could capture you" ; "always be safe". Such were the warnings that her parents constantly bombarded her with, and those were by far the milder ones. She was hardly allowed to do anything, for her parents feared that she would get injured and end up in the hospital and then end up in the Menagerie.
Many days, Coby felt trapped in an overprotective bubble. She wanted to live, not curl up in a ball and miss out on everything. But her parents always watched over her shoulder, and always made sure that she was not doing anything unusual or even mildly dangerous.
Coby was wasting her childhood away. And finally, she snapped under their watchful, prying eyes. The fact that she was turning out to be an adrenaline-craving sociopathic person did not help matters.
She went to an extreme measure. At sixteen years old, she joined a gang and got involved in crime behind her parents' backs. She learned all sorts of fighting, self-defense, and weapons techniques from them. She shoplifted, got involved in gunfights, stole from strangers, spied on rivaling gangs. Anything she could do to make up for the lost excitement of her childhood. She became well-known among the gangs for her skills in stealth, long-distance shooting, and espionage. Her talents were so great that she was almost invincible.
Oh, she adored the freedom and thrill. But, eventually, her little daydream came crashing down. She was shot in the shoulder and bled to unconsciousness. Her gang friends tried to treat her, but none of them had medical experience.
Her parents found out that she had not yet returned home. They searched for her and found her - unconscious and bloodied - in the hands of her gang. Her parents immediately treated her; her mother had medical experience.
Coby made a full recovery, and her parents tried to permanently lock her in the house. They soon realized, though, that they were destroying her. They decided to let her make her own choices, and to live the life that she wanted.
She was addicted to living on the edge in her beloved gang. She planned to return to that cutthroat lifestyle. But her fame - or rather infamy - that she had earned caught the attention of some special people.
Well, a few years later, and she had ended up in a SWAT team at twenty-one years old. The police department realized just how skilled she was, and they saw that they could use her talents. They could shape her into someone who could fight for good and abolish crime.
They succeeded. Coby became the most skilled member of her SWAT team. She became famous again among certain groups of people, but not for crime.
Coby adored this new lifestyle. She would never, ever leave it. It was where she belonged. It gave her the adrenaline-rush that she so desperately needed, and it gave her something worth fighting for. It taught her right from wrong, and showed her the value of teamwork.
Her sense of right and wrong became so strong that she became determined to help bring down the powerful UNIT. SWAT should crush them for their crimes against the shifters and retromorphs. Her shifter brothers and sisters had done nothing wrong; they did not deserve to be abused.
She knew that SWAT would hardly do such a thing as bringing down UNIT. It was not in their interests. But she found herself determined to see UNIT reduced to ashes. She had always hated them; now she wanted to destroy them. She knew that she, alone, would not be able to make a difference. If her actions, however, sparked riots against UNIT, then she would consider it a success. Just as long as they were abolished, she would be happy.
So Coby hitched a ride on a plane, borrowed a car, traveled by foot, and got to the Menagerie headquarters. She crept up to the Keeper headquarters undetected, and then shot the security cameras down. As the Keepers rushed out to capture the "criminal" in their midst, Coby began sniping them down.
She was ultimately outnumbered and outgunned. She was shot with numerous bullets along her ribcage. The pain immediately forced her unconscious. When she woke up, she was in the Keeper Lab, being experimented on and turned into an anthromorph. For her crimes against the Keepers, they kept the scars from the bullet wounds, and even left in some of the bullet shrapnel to hinder her and bring her pain inside the Menagerie. They made sure that the shrapnel was in a non-lethal position...but in a position to give her pain under stress or random times.
