Trooper Valerie Irons "Barb Wire"
"Advocate's" Personal Bodyguard
Trooper Valerie Irons, also known as “Barb Wire”, is the former personal bodyguard to Captain Massimo De Luca “Advocate”. Valerie is noted as attractive, but has a certain naivete about her that somehow always seems to work in her favor. She has practically no investigative skills, but is very talented with small arms and personal hand-to-hand weapons.
“Barb Wire” is a Veteran Manager NPC, with many talents and excels in personal combat. She has a brother, Thomas Irons, who also joined the unit, and serves in the Cerberus Command as a security trooper.
Valerie Irons is a former exotic dancer and part-time PI. She once owned a bar on Dunkelheim, known as the “Hammerhead”. During the recent planetary war, mercenary infantry and bounty hunters had a firefight in her bar, which resulted in its destruction (only a small part of the total devastation that struck Goldheim). Excelling in combat, and having few other practical skills, she joined the local resistance and spent a couple weeks dodging bullets and trying to find a way to start over.
When the Iron Dingoes made a broad offer of employment to the citizens of Goldheim and its surrounding districts, she took them up on the offer. Travelling to “The Citadel”, she was hired on the spot. She now serves Captain Massimo De Luca “Advocate” as his personal bodyguard, but is paid well and has the chance to get off-planet; both of which are just fine by her standards.
Barb Wire oversaw the expansion of the franchise to a small pub in the Liberty Town section of Ciudad Garcia in 3027, and in 3030 began overseeing the expansion of the franchise to Lake Aurin, serving the local military garrison. This latter effort involves converting a rough local bar into a modern pub capable of being considered a proper place to drink, get some grub, and associate with your fellow military folk safely.
