Uxía McNeill, to her Recruiting Sergeant, while lifting her shirt to show her scars.
Uxía McNeill is a five-and-a-half foot force to be reckoned with. Curt, temperamental, violent and foul-mouthed, she’s an old-school thug. Or, as she was often called in her neighborhood, ‘a right cunt’. She has always been an upstream swimmer, a rebel without a cause, insubordinate to the pre-established values of society. After being kicked out of two schools and a reformatory borstal, she embraced the wild side of life: she became lieutenant of a street gang, the “Scots Razors”, and then joined an Irmandinho smuggling network. She has been fired from every single job she’s taken, and she’s only taken them to put the police off her scent. On the other hand, she has survived four years in the Caledonian army.
The recruiter was astonished to see such a rowdy woman show such outstanding talent for stealth and covert ops. After a period of general training that was atypically long (due to all that detention time), she joined the Highlander SAS Regiment directly. There, Uxía realized that her aim in life was not only to shoot at people, but to outwit the authorities while doing so.
With the SAS she can carry out the bold tactics she learned with the Irmandinhos. As a young woman, she had to acquire the skills to evade patrols when in her smuggling runs, and now she can act under the radar of any security network. However, Uxía’s love for brawling and commotion makes her less than ideal for covert surveillance ops.
Once the enemy is in her kill zone, she gets tunnel vision and starts throwing grenades and insults left and right, and then makes music with her beloved ‘Ramona’, her trusty shotgun.
