When asked to introduce Echo Squad member Amp to the squad, this is what one drill sergeant had to say.
“You can do all the push-ups you want, rookie! You will never be as big as Mass. Son, at this rate the only thing you’re going to be pushin’ up is daisies! You lack speed, stamina, and agil- well speak of the devil.
OK, listen up!
This is Echo Squad member, Amp. Amp is the ultimate definition of beauty, brains, and brawn. Amp’s speed, cunning, and agility make her an integral pillar of Echo Squad.”
The darkness of Amp’s past is what drives her; it’s what gives her her edge. As a child she was orphaned and exiled as a fugitive. A wealthy business man raised her, but he was rumored to have Russian Mafia connections and mysteriously disappeared after trading black market tech with the Nogari Corporation. Before turning to mercenary work at age 21 she was a skiptracer and a bounty hunter. But Amp’s mysterious dark side has almost killed her on countless occasions. She’s after Nogari because they hold the secret to her survival.
Combining the agility of a rogue with the control and skill of an assassin, Amp’s strength lies in her cunning abilities and extraordinary endurance. Her sleek physique is tuned for speed and tactility, and she’s very efficient in hand-to-hand combat. She’s also one of the team’s best at handling recoil, granting her deadly force when using the Firefly weapon. Her Ambrosia Suit’s large Dynamic Shield is offers support and range and is the best at protecting allies while moving forward under heavy fire. Her Dynamic Shockwave, while not as powerful as others, has the furthest range making it the best in the business at killing enemies behind cover.
