Nancy Watson

    Seasoned Female

    Background

    Born in 1912, Nancy Watson was an Orphan by the age of five. Her father, an infantryman, died at Passchendaele, and her mother of Spanish Influenza a few months later. Nancy was taken into a government run orphanage where her intelligence and wit came to the attention of the board of governors. They saw to it that Nancy went to a good school and from there she was recruited into an academy for "Girls with special potential". Knowing that she was, more or less, alone, Nancy decided at a young age that if she were to have a better life then she would need to fend for herself. The skills she learned at the academy covered many of the subjects that the very best finishing schools would. And many subjects that they very definitely wouldn’t. The Academy also introduced Nancy to the concept of Government service. It was funded by the crown and loyalty to King and country was indoctrinated.

    With a talent for romance languages, and romance in general, Nancy made her way from rich man to rich man. Always she was told to learn about these men, who they worked for, who they supported politically, where their loyalties lay. She became an expert at getting rich men to fund her lavish lifestyle until one day she was made an offer she couldn’t refuse. She would use the skills she had learned to truly serve her country rather than rifling the pockets of the third and fourth sons of the gentry.

    Ever a loyal subject, Nancy jumped at the chance, and went into training again, eventually joining a new government agency called Section D.

    All business with her fellow agents, Nancy's demeanour changes like the sky on a windy day when she is working a mark or playing a part to further the needs of king and country. She follows orders to the letter and always stays on task.

    Description

    A slight 5'6", Nancy is an attractive girl, and she knows it. Something she is more than willing to use to her advantage in her chosen line of work. She dresses to impress and is never without an opportunity for a gentleman to behave properly. Whether that is a cigarette to light, a door to be held open or a drink to be paid for.
