Olive-skinned and dark haired, Valentina stands at approximately 5’7 with dark brown eyes and reddened pouted lips. She appears to be between the ages of 18 and 25 and has long straight hair tied back into a high ponytail as well as pierced ears. Her build is athletic yet thin with well-toned arms, calves and upper back, suggesting at the time she was embraced she was a competitor in sports. She has a few distinct moles on her neck that spread across her shoulder blades and her hands still bare the callouses and scars she has carried over from the time she was alive to this day.
Still dressing like she's from the 80's, Valentina wears a noticeable red and white varsity sports jacket with the number 86’ stitched onto the back. Underneath she wears a casual shirt, accompanied by a pair of tight jeans with a hole torn at the left knee. She wears a pair of red and white converse sneakers and is accessorized by a single cross pendant hanging around her neck which she normally keeps it tucked under her shirt. She's almost always accompanied by a barbed baseball bat whose pattern has long since faded and turned a slight shade of red.
Valentina is a young-at-heart neonate who has never really progressed past the 80's in terms of mentality and behaviour. She still believes that the people have much to learn and that despite the changes in technology, culture and global relations, the world at large and the people within it have remained much the same. An adrenaline junkie and fighter for downtrodden and forgotten, she boasts a presence of a calm yet expressive young woman whose mannerisms make her seem quick to temper. However, anything could be further from the truth. While she may seem and look angry, at her core she only becomes tempered when there is actual proper cause for it. When her patience has reached its end or provoked to frenzy, she becomes unrelenting and physically violent until she no longer has reason to.
She is happiest when she is surrounded by sport, people who enjoy life's greater pleasures and the rush and peace she feels when at the head of the wheel. Being a motor enthusiast and tinkerer, Valentina is remarkably crafty when it comes to her hobbies and through her passion she is able to express her desire for freedom. Spiritually concerned, believes she is playing part in God's plan but doesn't believe in shoving her religious views down other's throats. While she doesn't agree with how the Crone operate, she only becomes defensive when someone openly makes an issue out of it or flaunts an evil deed in public without concern for others.
Ambitious, risk-taking, protective, yearning - these are the words that define who she is. A girl out of time, the neonate has yet to fully embrace the new millennia and what it stands for and hopes that one day, she will be able to settle down and call a city of her own "home".
Rumors speak of a young woman leading a youth militant group going by the name of "Judgement." A newly formed youth group that travels across the rural parts of the continent, they hunt down, chase out and punish the wrongdoers of society. Pedophiles, murderers, rapists, fraudsters, even animal abusers are not safe. The gang is made up of homeless youth, former drug pushers, vagabonds, and the unlucky and have been constantly on the move, going from town to city to town and flushing out the rats as they go. They travel as a convoy and often times modify their cars so that it makes it difficult to identify and track them.
