Age: 24 years (2 years as a juicer.) Race: Human. Sex: Female.
Even though quick and dexterous, always was a little on the weak side even compared to many women. In addition was relatively short. This nagged away at her ego and made her feel that she had something to prove. Becoming a juicer would mean that at least for a few years she would be better than anybody else. Knew that she would never match many juicer in strength but could match them in raw speed. As a result, she chose to become a Hyperion juicer over other types.
She prefers to not think about what will happen when she begins to die from the juicer augmentation. It is quite unlikely that she is willing to give it up. Otherwise, it is difficult to determine how she will react. Might possibly consider becoming a full conversion cyborg although hard to know for sure.
In general, while not actively evil, is quite selfish and mainly cares about herself. If somebody gets on her bad side, there is often hell to pay. She can be quite vindictive at times. Otherwise, can be callous as well. Doesn’t mind killing and has no real compunctions. Doesn’t really do it out of hatred but does get a certain thrill about winning.
Part of being a juicer is living fast and she has embraced this as well. Not bad looking, she has had a host of boyfriends over the years. She cannot be considered particularly loyal to friends generally however. While she will not actively try to betray an ally or somebody than one might try to consider a friend, if required will certainly betray them.
Has no hatred or love for the Coalition. They just are. The same basic situation is the case with D-Bees and practitioners of magic as well. They can be targets of her or they can be associates. Not really against the use of magic items generally.

Tanya Turbo is fairly short at only about five feet tall. While reasonably athletic even before becoming a juicer, the juicer, the juicer conversion made her far more lithe than she ever was before. She has a nice although quite slender figure. Of course her muscle density is incredible. Between soft brown eyes, she has a slender nose that almost turns up. Has brown hair which she actually keeps fairly long, down to the small of her back. Often has the tips of her hair dyed with bright red tips. Tends to only otherwise wear light cosmetics.
In dress, she prefers to wear skin tight jump suits, mostly black with white stripes but not exclusively. Some are also the exact reverse and are white with black stripes along the sides. It allows her to show off her figure while allows her movements to be basically unrestricted. Has a set of NG-TW Jumpsuit Armor that she often wears when not in full body armor.

Tanya Turbo’s Background:
Traci Scott lived most of her life in the Riverside area of Newtown. Her parents were day laborers, often barely scraping by. As often as not, Traci went hungry. Of course, she is far from the only one with much of the population of Riverside living on the margins. Making it worse was the fact that crime was rampant and several times a year they were robbed for everything they had.
In such a situation, it is little wonder that one might look up to juicers. Strong, fast, and tough, they did not take shit from anybody else. In addition, the recordings of juicer sports made them appear quite glamorous with many juicers becoming stars. Of course there was that whole pesky five year life span but one could be somebody special for at least those five years. She always had a thing for Hyperion juicers and dreamed of becoming one herself.
As her parents had before, Traci scraped by for a few years but it wore thin after a while. Unlike her parents, she joined a gang for a few years. Never was real picky what she would do in order to survive. While she never hated her parents, she was never particularly loyal to them either. Thought about joining a mercenary company. As far as she could tell, a mercenary company was little more than a large gang anyway.
As luck would have it, she heard rumors of a mercenary company camped outside the city composed of mostly juicers. It was said that they would pay for others to go through the juicer conversion. Seemed like as good a choice as any so packed up what little she had and see if she could find the company. While in the gang, she had managed to pick up some cheap body armor and a laser pistol.
Actually they were relatively honest as such companies go and even told up front what the risks were. The agreement was for a three year contract in return for the juicer conversion. After the three years, one could decide to strike out on their own or get detoxified. As one might expect, with her admiration for Hyperion juicers, she chose to become one of them instead of a standard juicer.
Soon after having completing her conversion, the company was ambushed. Much of the company was killed in the fighting including both the commander and the second in command. The few that survived were leaderless. Some stuck together for a while but most of the survivors split off to go their own way.
Traci herself decided to become independent. Decided to separate herself from her old self and took the name “Tanya Turbo.” While she does not like banditry or outright assassination, she is otherwise not picky about what kind of jobs she was willing to take. Signed on with several mercenary companies for part time jobs as well as doing some independent adventuring.
During her travels, was able to capture a fair amount of additional gear including a Naruni force field generator which she was able to get incorporated into a suit of Triax T-42 Commando armor.
