"Welcome to the Nerd Lab."
Gogo wouldn't be who she is today without her best, and obviously nerdiest, of friends. She may have a rough exterior, but deep down, she loves all of them from the bottom of the heart. For some, that feeling may be more buried than for others, but keep digging. They'll find it. It's there.
Gogo has a criminal background, and in fact, keeps in touch with a few of her fellow gang members. Not because she misses the life, however. Far from it. Knowing that many of them have landed in prison is a harsh reminder of consequences, where she could be today if her Uncle hadn't encouraged her to pursue a higher calling at SFIT.
During her time in the racing circuits, the mechanical engineering student learned how to hotwire cars. Which, she happens to be darn good at.
The tomboy is no stranger to injury. She has broken more than a few bones, given herself a concussion in a freak motorcycle accident, accidentally tore her hamstrings once when she had been too eager to get out onto the track. And those are only the tip of the iceberg. She wears these injuries like a badge of honor, often bragging of them and never impressed with one's minor paper cut.
Despite her tough, hardened attitude, Gogo actually has some feelings for a certain mascot of the Institute. But, unlike most girls, she doesn't express this through silent fangirling or hopeless mooning. If she so desired, she would have no problem with making her shadowed feelings known.
True to the stereotype, she absolutely loves kimchi. It is by far her favorite meal, followed only by a generous slice of cold steak and bubblegum. (Yes, she considers bubblegum a meal in its own.)
Gogo hits the snooze on her alarm at least twice before forcing herself out of bed. Because one, there is no better place than in bed after a long night. And two, most of her nights are long ones.
Pushed into extracurricular activities that she had little interest in as a child, Gogo has a firm grasp of the art of violin. Not that she would ever give a performance. If ever found out, she would adamantly deny her own abilities.
Sex Pistols, Ramones and The Clash are at the top of Gogo's playlist, among other famed punk rock bands of old. However, if one scrolled further down, one or two K-pop songs might surface. What can she say? It's something of a guilty pleasure, one of the few elements of her native culture that she doesn't absolutely reject.
"To understand what I’m about to tell you, you need to do something first. You need to believe in the impossible. Can you do that? You see that yellow blur? That’s me! That too. There I am again! My name is Gogo Tomago, and I am the fastest woman alive. To the outside world, I am an ordinary mechanical engineering major at San Fransokyo Institute of Technolgy. But secretly with my friends, I fight crime and defend my city from those who'd do it harm. The truth is, I didn't set out on this path. But like a friend once told me, life doesn't always go the way you plan."
Character Development Profile:
Alias:Given her passion for all things fast, the nickname Gogo has caught on among her peers. She doesn't mind. For once, that nitwit fanboy actually came through.
Alignment:Loyalty is everything to Gogo. Should need be, she will not hesitate to defend her friends, or her city. Beyond that, she has been spurned far too many times to ever pick a side without serious consideration first.
Age:The mechanical engineer is 19 years of age.
Acceleration:Her whole life Gogo has been running, looking for escape in one form or another. For a time, it was drag racing, using the winnings to afford tuition at SFIT. At another point, she would have deemed motocross to be the answer. Ultimately, nothing beats the classics. It's the bicycle that this college student favors above all others.
Velocity. The textbook defines velocity as the rapidity of motion or operation; swiftness; speed. And that was all Gogo had ever longed for, an ends to a mean. For the longest time she had been racing, fleeing, from a life she didn't recognize as her own. An impossibility, really, her top speeds could never be fast enough. But when her best friend was killed, caught up in a fiery explosion, his brother made her the impossible. A battlesuit, equipping the very zero resistance, mag-lev technology that she had invented as little more than a class project. She used this gift to avenge his death, and later, to defend her city from threats that would bring it to its knees.
Tough as nails doesn't come close to describing this straightforward athlete. Living for speed and thrill, Go Go is willing to take up any challenge, any time, which is helped by her resourcefulness and adaptive nature. However, because of her fierce attitude, she may not be the most approachable person to be around, often making up for her lack of conversation with bluntness and sarcasm. At most, she can be highly opinionated, having little patience for those who move at a more leisurely or frivolous pace.
Despite her stinginess, despite her defiance to authority, beyond her rough facade, is perhaps the largest amounts of compassion and uncompromising values. Complete with a strong code of honor, Go Go would do anything to protect and defend her friends from the face of danger.
