Cold winters filled this blind girl’s childhood, growing up in southern Lappland. She grew up in the care of her sheep herding father, her Sami mother leaving when she was a baby. He had little hope for a suitor, so he focused on teaching her valuable trades that could help them earn money.
When her mother revisted, three subsequent brothers were born and the now teenager realized there would soon be no room for an old maid. When her gift surfaced, she had the growing fear her family would soon see her as not only blind but also crazy. She formed a plan, and before dawn fled her childhood home. When she reached the first village, she offered her house keeping skills to anyone she met in the town but with no takers she had to keep moving. Her next few months were a trial, traveling from town to town begging for food or work.
Eventually she was taken in by a family with children and quickly she began eavesdropping on their studies. Through bribes of food, she was able to have the children teach her their lessons, and even tricking them into teaching the alphabet and some reading. This ended when a maid snitched to the father and she was subsequently thrown out of the town. This time, when entering the next town she passed herself as a teacher of the blind. This continued as she moved between villiages and towns, sometimes even passing herself off as a cured blind woman. Claiming she could teach students to become just like her.
Sometimes she was figured out, chased out of town. Eventually by age 19 she had ended up in Stockholm, finding the school for the blind there and enlisting, thinking she could learn more then she already had. However basket weaving was the primary focus, after braille and moon type lessons. She did manage to learn English through her struggle with the school’s teachers. She became a show piece for the school to solicit donations from those who pitied the blind condition. She hated it.
Just when she thought her life was becoming secure she found herself needing to get out of Sweden quick. Thoridyss found herself buying her way onto a ship for England as soon as was possible. Her next years were a repeat of the last, but this time she understood the game and she figured out how to get her way using the feelings of others to her advantage.
After her merit spread in England, having started her footing properly this time, she found herself receiving an invitation to teach at the school for the Blind in Southern London. An offer she readily accepted…without realizing the secrets that the city held.

Weapon Fishnet Armor
This is a complex system that is ultimately jointly controlled through [classified] and her pendant. Designed by 10 with the aid of the Engineering Department in her first years of joining, it has been adapted as time has gone on.
…are covered in the system that on will can close into a layered armor for protection. The armor can form into spikes on the arms and legs. This can be used for offensive maneuver if absolutely needed.
Likewise, in this state it can also deploy an under layer of foam like material that helps absorb shock and forces to the body
The system also has a function to shock 10’s muscles awake if she needs it.
Gloves are outfitted with an exoskeleton that if she grows too tired to move her hands can be used to manually control her fingers.
This acts as her main computer, projecting her holograms and collecting her data. She has 24/7 access to agencies feeds and keeps SAM updated on tasks on here. The system routes back to her personal server as a backup method.

Though she has a small frame, this woman is not someone that gives you an easy going feeling upon your first meeting. Her face stays flat, her voice monotone, and you won’t really know what mood she’s giving off other than an apparent boredom.
To those of her class she might not be a motherly figure, but more of a domineering force. She works hard to bring the best out of those in her field and “Tough Love” is her favorite medicine of choice. Those who have had her personally as mentor can attest that even though she may not sugar coat her words, she gives praise when it is earned.
This kept in mind; she still isn’t too grown up to play tricks on unsuspecting victims, having a few favorite targets in the lot to work with.
On the field everything from this agent is expected to go picture perfect. Otherwise a colleague might get an earful depending on the wrongdoing of the event. She has high expectations of both herself and others, and her actions will show this.
She was born into an Amish community in Pennsylvania..When her ability started to surface at a young age her parents dropped her off at a Church to have her escape the mistreatment of some of the radically religious community members. The child was put into Foster care at age 10, thinking herself abandoned for lack of interest from her parents. Ruth did not understand that her slow development of her ability was the cause. It wasn’t until she was beginning to be reprimanded by her foster parents that she realized she had to pretend ‘sleep’ as the other children did. At age 12 the records state that she was adopted into a large family by urge of the daughter who had befriended Ruth in school. The family was far from rich but they accepted her in to the household despite this. One night Ruth over heard her adoptive parents talking about the unpaid bills and having to pick up extra jobs. This was her turning point. She started looking up anything she could on computers. By age 13 and ½ she had a small computer repair and programming gig to pull in extra money. One night an angry Ex-girlfriend asked Ruth to hack into her boyfriend’s computer. Saying she’d pay a substantial amount of money, Ruth accepted and turned to the illegal side of technology. Her adoptive parents just figured the money was coming from the business. But they never spent a penny of her money as it had been placing it in a savings account for her future.
At the age of 15, she had established a cell of hackers that would supply information for competing companies. Often enough they were actually employed by both sides. However her prosper soon spiraled downhill at age 16 when she attempted hacking a government computer for personal reasons. One of her ‘employees’ had tampered with her job, so once she broke the firewall her ip address was flashed on the victim’s screen. She had been using an internet café and even after ditching the computer the chase ran to the front door of her home. But the FBI was not the only ones there for her. A man in a white coat gave her the option to come with him instead, to which she readily agreed to avoid her other options.
2006 – 2014
Ruth has been a part of HQ2 since her induction at age 16 . She was often enough found in the mechbay tampering with the other class’ belongings and helping with designs as well as programming the technology. She would send any money she gets to her family still, promising that it’s legal. It was in the Agency that she started experimenting on herself such as [Classified].
After her transfer to HQ01, this agent quickly climbed the ranks as her skills were realized. Eventually landing her as second in command of the class and then finally as the hacker leader.
Following the certain downfall of HQ01, the recent Class leader found herself stuck in a struggle of both trying to mend her class along with guiding them through their operations on base. Her body was weak from the lack of food and she soon found herself reaching a state of paranoia up to the end of the base’s days. Upon the escape from HQ01, she relocated to HQ05 firstly for rehabilitation for her malnourishment. After a month’s time of physical therapy, she began to dabble further into the Engineering Class, choosing it initially for her second class. She used the second class as a form of distraction while she recovered her weight back, inventing things for the base.
As the medbay cleared her, she shifted back into the groove of training her class and reorganizing the members as well as giving herself smaller fields to focus on. She shifted bases, lining up with Agent 13 once again.
After the mission in August of 2015, 10 found herself experiencing 'nightmares' in her daily life, which manifested as daydreaming. The point in which she found herself pinching her limbs to stay awake, was when she went in for counseling due to the images of the mission as well as the previous things she'd seen. The day terrors dwindled as she went on before clearing up completely. She continued therapy sessions for safe measure as well as going after graphic images surface in missions there on out.
In late 2016, she began assigning workloads to the hacker class agents for the development of an A.I. system upon request of the other Top Tens. This action took a majority of the agents' time and she found herself slowly losing interest in her chosen second class. In the beginning of 2017 she made the drastic shift to start training for pilots, something fresh and new to her. The first months were rigorous, both working with the piloting simulators as well as the engineers to modify her armor to help with the forces of flight.
As the year went by the agent shifted calmly into her responsibilities and new training, still making sure to raise hell for her trainees and agents when needed. With the move to Alpha HQ, the woman moved in with Agent 13 or rather he moved in with her.
->Can 'speak' binary
->Hates 'squishy' foods
->You can tell if one of her hemispheres is asleep due to the reaction time of an eye being slower
->Is not allowed to use matches by Agent 13's decree

-Brand mark on back
To Take into Consideration; Ability
