Amy Elizabeth Myer. Nicknamed 'Sunshine' by her father, teased mercilessly by her twin about said nickname. Verse: Stargate Atlantis
- Imaginary Gate Team 5
. Not so much an AU as a 'Things Happening Offscreen'.PhysicalSpecies:
Pale straw blond, kept short when she's stressed (as she has a habit of chopping it off) but has grown out from time to time.Eyes:
Blue, but not pale blue, or ice blue, or piercing blue, or any such nonsense. Just everyday ordinary blue.Special Abilities:
Had a very weak gift for using ancient technology. Can form a only-slightly-stronger gestalt with Ant and Matt, but it works best under stress. For a few moments after the gestalt they share memories and knowledge-based skills (languages, medical knowledge, etc)Age:
24ish, born in late AprilHealth:
Good, no known issuesHeight/Build:
5'5", athletic (in the Marines, duh)Tattoos/scars/etc:
Small Gemini symbol at the base of her skull (in memory of her brother), normally covered by hair.SocialFamily:
Mother, Mary Stark Myer, father Issac Myer. Her twin (Johnathon) died in a car accident her first (and last) semester in college. Her mother has three siblings, her father has five. Lots and lots of extended family to go around, which makes her the odd one out as a (now) only-child.Personality:
Chirpy, out-going, perky... etc. One of those annoying cheerful morning people who has no clue just how annoying she is. Friends:
Amy gets along better with Matt then anyone else on the team. Ant is her second favorite person, but he's not outgoing/energetic/insane enough to keep up with her half the time. Which is a good thing.Enemies:
Rodney The Grumpy. (on the flip side, Rodney the Not-Grumpy is considered harmless) Significant Others:
None, per se, although she has a very low key relationship with Ant and is much more open to short term attachments. Her job normally moves her around a lot and she's not planning on staying in the Pegasus galaxy long term.Other StuffsEducation:
She went to college in New York for the first semester of her freshman year (undeclared) Job:
Sergent (E-5) in the Marines. MOS 5711, Nuclear Biological and Chemical (NBC) Defense Specialist. Currently stationed in Atlantis, came over in the 'second wave' with the Deadelus.Clothing Styles/Preferences:
Has two extremes, laid-back BDUs and dressed-to-the-nines. Doesn't have much of chance to dress up in Pegasus and latches onto any opportunity that presents itself.Life Sum-up:Likes:Dislikes:Goals:____________________Facts from fics:The Line Has Held

She is disillusioned by the overabundance of advanced technology that doesn't seem to do anything useful.Worldbuilding
