2.  History

Childhood: Leaving a lot of this open, but Jen has a middle-ish class background, probably somewhere in California. Somewhere in her late teens/early 20s, her parents were killed in a car crash caused by a drunk driver. Ever since, she's made it a point to not let anyone get behind the wheel in an impaired state if she has anything to say about it, even if it means taking keys away from drunks much larger than she is.

She's paid for school with a combination of scholarships, loans, part-time jobs, and at least one year with AmeriCorps. She didn't necessarily get her BS in Physics at Berkley, and in fact probably got it at a Cal State Somewhere (CSU being less expensive than UC).

7.  Notes

Uncontrolled Transformation is triggered by opposing responses in each direction. Most stimuli that result in an adrenaline response - injury, pain, anger, fear, anxiety - can force Jennifer to become Adamant. She must make a Determination check with a minimum difficulty of 15, with the difficulty increasing as the offending stimulus becomes more threatening. Any injury that would be lethal to Jennifer forces the transformation. Conversely, positive, endorphin-producing experiences tend to cause her to revert with the same difficulty, though reversion is never forced automatically and the difficulty rarely rises significantly.
