Biography

Dr. Kinsey Sheridan was born into an Irish-American military family in Boston, the so-called Cradle of Liberty. Her ancestors, going back generations, have all been lauded for their excellence in service, so there was never any question that she would be joining a military branch herself. When she came of age, though, it was apparent that she was too strong-willed, too much of an independent thinker and too prone to improvising and modifying protocol to ever be valuable in the rank and file. In combat situations where a group must move and think as one, that kind of thing gets soldiers killed.

She finished high school two years early, already a gifted engineer, and gained employment at Picatinny Arsenal, a joint military complex dedicated to R&D. She spent several years developing advanced maneuvering systems for military vehicles, and it's there that she learned to work as a test pilot, insisting upon testing her own work for ethical reasons. She was hardly anything special as a pilot, but she possessed the right kind of fearlessness and devotion to her purpose, and she discovered a passionate love for the high-adrenaline occupation.

On the side, she began to pursue academic degrees. First engineering, then robotics, and then neural network artificial intelligence, a field she took interest in in the hopes that she might utilize it to give soldiers in the field an even greater tactical edge. As her work grew ever-increasingly more complicated, somebody in the higher echelons of military intelligence took notice. She was monitored closely by the NSA's TECHINT division. When her work expanded to include some thoughts about quantum physics and whether or not it might be possible to use it to transmit information — consciousness — from soldiers and AIs to one another, it was decided that Picatinny was no longer the appropriate place for her to continue her work. Her monitoring agent contacted the DEO, and she was recruited into the R&D branch of the Knightwatch, where she shifted her focus to developing 'smart' weapons, armor, and other technology to give the Knightwatch's human soldiers an incredible edge against the supernormal threats they were created to face down. Not only would the equipment come with an AI partner in the field, but all of those AI, and their assigned soldiers, would be linked together seamlessly across even vast distances, utilizing quantum physics: an outrageously ambitious vision.

With access to alien and inter-dimensional technology, the breakthroughs came hard and fast after that, and it wasn't long before she had several working prototypes. Early AI iterations were paired with lab animals, but it was determined that even intelligent apes were incapable of providing the cognitive interaction necessary for proper testing. Knowing more than anyone else about the technology involved and fearless as ever, Kinsey volunteered to be the first human subject to have the hardware installed in her skull.

The first few trials went incredibly well…but eventually there was an accident.

(It's a superhero backstory — of course there was an accident.)

An explosion. Something in the link between Kinsey and AI 5.0 became unstable at the subatomic level. When the smoke cleared they found Kinsey barely alive in the wreckage of the laboratory. Both of her legs from the knee down and the majority of her right arm had been blown off. Her brainwave activity was alarmingly abnormal, so she was placed into a medically-induced coma. Her odds of survival were not estimated to be very good.

There were all sorts of problems with electrical faults in the equipment surrounding her bed in intensive care, and her brain activity remained inexplicably strange. She did eventually wake, and not long afterward tendered her resignation with the DEO, accepting a generous severance package. She claimed that her frequent, splitting migraines would impede her ability to work at the level required by the organization.

In truth, she'd discovered that the prototype AI, Five, had somehow been shunted into her skull during the accident, and that she now possessed several unusual abilities — abilities her former employers would no doubt be required to catalogue…if they decided to let her live at all. She felt it would be most prudent to disappear into civilian life until she had a better grasp of what it was that had happened to her, and what it might mean for her future.

Over the last year her proficiency has increased to the point that she's been able to erase herself almost entirely from public record, with the exception of her employment dossier, which is still extant in the Knightwatch database. She took the funds from her severance pay and opened a garage in Gotham along the waterfront that faces Metropolis, working during the day on specialist vehicles and other challenging machinery. At night she works in the lab hidden underneath the garage, or as fledgeling mercenary pilot and hacker, Six.

Character Details

Kinsey Sheridan has layers. She's a thinker, a scientist, and embraces logic, but she's also inherited the wild streak of her Irish-American heritage, and those two halves of her personality are often at odds. She warms readily to new people, quick with a sly remark and prone to spoiling those she likes, but there's a part of her that always seems held in reserve. …But then, who doesn't have secrets?

Relationships

Image Name Relation Information
Dg8DTJR.jpg Caitlin Fairchild Actual Hero Six had a lot of questions for Caitlin recently, and Caitlin had a lot of answers, and a suggestion: maybe Six should join the Justice League, to escape from whatever it is she's running from. It was an offer made in kindness, and although Kinsey is uncertain that the proper path is choosing to align with such a high-profile faction, she isn't likely to forget that kindness anytime soon. In her mind, whatever she decides, she owes Cait just for extending a hand at all.
QZMnbu2.jpg Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel Actual Hero She was at the cargo docks, along with Caitlin Fairchild, when Six made a daylight appearance to help resolve a mess with a tilted-over cargo freighter. Gave Six a hell of a ride on a jolt of superhuman energy, too.
KH7XnDk.jpg Jessica Jones Friend Jessica is one of only two people on earth who knows that Kinsey is more than just a mechanic with a garage in Gotham. That knowledge has made her a default sounding board for Kinsey as she tries to negotiate the loneliness and challenges of being something other than she pretends to be, and through that, the two are cultivating a friendship that managed to survive Yet Another Unpleasant Revelation. Things are awkward, but genuine — states of being that, at the least, Kinsey's got plenty of familiarity with.
b0ngyAZ.jpg ????? RUINER OF THINGS Neither Kinsey nor Six know who the hell this person is, but they keep showing up in time to interfere with things that she wants. It's getting really irritating.
ovrjKlK.jpg Matthew Murdock Something They encountered one another outside of Hominis Nova: Matt looking for clues about the theft of something from the science conglomerate while pretending not to be, and Kinsey pretending to be looking for clues about the theft, while she was really looking for information about who was ACTUALLY looking. What began as a careful friendship slowly evolved into something more, which was put to the sudden test when each discovered the other had been leading a separate life all along. After a long and necessary hiatus of contact to allow Murdock to focus on the trial of James Barnes, they've decided to try and pick up where they left off. The Irish: very stubborn people.
dMgXt70.jpg Man, Spider HUGE NERD Spider-Man helped Six correct the most potentially dangerous mistake she's made since her accident. The fact that this was in small part his fault does not in any way decrease her gratitude — he was just doing his job, right? And now she owes him. Several times over, as it happens, because he got caught up in whatever it is that a mystery party in New York wants with Kinsey, and she'll go to almost any lengths to ensure that no harm comes to any innocents caught in the crossfire of her strange life.
9rAhvll.jpg Peter F****** Quill, aka Star-Prince Dangerously Charming Space Guy He turns up at her garage one day with some extraterrestrial technology to fix, guaranteeing himself a spot on her contacts list for life. He flirts incessantly. Kinsey has assured him that she's already dated someone like him twice, and learned her lesson the second time.
I5XJbuw.jpg Rocket NOT A DATE Working with the DEO means Kinsey is more aware of the diversity of beings out there than most people, so she adjusted pretty quickly to Rocket, although a sentient raccoon is a new one even to her. His proficiency with technology beyond the terran type and the fact that he can apparently build things in his sleep made him interesting enough that Kinsey asked him to dinner. She could learn a lot from somebody like that. Six, meanwhile, thinks it sounds like a good idea to keep somebody around who knows how to blow things up.
ivYldtK.png Tony Stark Ugh. Kinsey's parents have some serious clout in the military, and the Sheridan name has weight in the security industry of the private sector. When the sole scion of the Sheridan family closed in on her high school graduation having already made some ripples in circles with overlap to Stark Industries, Tony Stark offered her the job of most people's dreams. Kinsey turned him down. She had her reasons. A series of unfortunate events led to her doing what he'd always obnoxiously said she would do: knocking on his door and asking for that job. But it's complicated…and whatever concessions she's making to keep the peace in their working relationship, whatever gratitude she may feel for his willingness to come to her aid when she needed it most…she still thinks he's an absolute ass.
WnEWgga.png Trish Walker Card Shark Jessica Jones' sister. Kinsey met her at a girls' poker night (they played for Oreos) and liked her immediately: Trish has a sly, wisecracking personality that pairs well with Jessica's irreverence. Watching the pair banter could make for an entertaining evening all on its own.

Dedications:

Jessica Jones:Breathe Me — Sia

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And the worst part is there's no one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me, I am small
I'm needy, warm me up
And breathe me

Matt Murdock:Various Storms & Saints — Florence + The Machine

And the air was full
Of various storms and saints
Praying in the street
As the banks began to break
And I'm in the throes of it
Somewhere in the belly of the beast
But you took your toll on me
So I gave myself over willingly
Oh, you got a hold on me
I don't know how I don't just stand outside and scream
I am teaching myself how to be free

The monument of a memory
You tear it down in your head
Don't make the mountain your enemy
Get out, get up there instead
You saw the stars out in front of you
Too tempting not to touch
But even though it shocked you
Something's electric in your blood

And people just untie themselves
Uncurling lifelines
If you could just forgive yourself

Spider-Man:White And Nerdy — Weird Al Yankovic

First in my class here at M.I.T.
Got skills, I'm a Champion of D&D
MC Escher that's my favorite MC
Keep your 40 I'll just have an Earl Grey tea
My rims never spin, to the contrary
You'll find that they're quite stationary
All of my action figures are cherry
Stephen Hawking's in my library
My MySpace page is all totally pimped out
Got people begging for my top 8 spaces
Yo I know Pi to a thousand places
Ain't got no grills but I still wear braces

RP Logs & Journals

September 10, 2017: Background Check

On one of Matt Murdock's calls to check in with Kinsey Sheridan while he's abroad in Wakanda, fighting to exculpate James Barnes (again), the topic of conversation turns to his history with Elektra Natchios; her sudden, startling return; and what that could mean in an immediate sense for the people close to him.

Not discussed: what it could mean in the long term for the young woman closer to him than most, and whether or not it's worth it to ask your girlfriend to dig up dirt on your ex, even if she is possibly a Hydra assassin.
