Tall, beautiful, and alien, Veraza's stunning figure is accentuated by her choice of attire, the skintight nanoweave suit fitting her curvaceous body like a second skin. Due to her profession being primarily sedentary work, she lacks the etched figure of many other assassins, letting nature and cheeseburgers take a little more of a toll than they would on a more active combatant.
Hawk-like golden eyes and creamy purplish-blue skin make her alien nature obvious at a glance, though they fail to bely the extent to which she is different from an ordinary human... which happens to be quite a lot.
Mercenary, flippant, and unambiguously evil, the Steel Silhouette sells her skills to the highest bidder. While she's more than willing to go back on a contract in exchange for a better deal, she always makes sure that the first client ends up with a bullet in their head from a long, long ways away -- to protect her reputation, after all.
Veraza prefers to work from a stationary position, though she isn't at all averse to a display of evasive acrobatics when the situation calls for them. These, however, are reserved for escaping rather than attempting close-range combat; if Veraza isn't at an advantage, she'd always rather run or talk than fight. She represents a sort of dichotomy between warm and cold personality traits, simultaneously exhibiting capriciousness, lack of empathy, and tactical cowardice in direct contrast with her unpredictable tantrums, unreliability, and hedonism.
Veraza's abilities are separated into three categories -- her skills, her equipment, and her natural Nauelli enhancements.
Veraza is a completely worthless hand to hand combatant, fleeing from opponents when they get closer than a football field's distance away from her. Her acrobatics and armor allow her to efficiently evade close-range threats, but someone who is sufficiently persistent and fast can most likely defeat her.
From far away is a different story -- Veraza is a peerless markswoman, sharp planner, and a cunning diplomat, perfectly willing to use her looks to gain an advantage in a social situation. In addition, she is an efficient pilot, who generally flies her own one-seat Spikeship from job to job... occasionally finishing jobs without ever needing to leave it.
While Veraza does not technically sleep, she is capable of going into a sort of statis known as the thash'at, resting while remaining aware of her surroundings. This allows her to quite literally sleep on the job, waiting for extremely long periods of time for a mark to get in the perfect place.
Due to the extreme temperature on her own home planet, Veraza can survive very extreme levels of cold, enough to thrive unaided in space if she has a source of carbon dioxide, which she breathes. Due to the abundance of carbon dioxide on Earth, Veraza is exceptionally healthy and able to offset her generally poor cardio -- and in gas situations, she can steal viable nourishment straight from the mouths of human beings, which earned her the nickname of "Breathtaker."
