National Personification

The Personification of Nova-Columbia

Aleksandra Radović

Description: Aleksandra is the national personification of Nova-Columbia. She is slightly above the average height in the nation, standing at 5 feet 7 inches, with shoulder-length brown hair, purple eyes, and tan white skin. Her height is somewhat enhanced by her apparent refusal to wear any shoes except standard issue military boots. In fact, the same can be said for essentially her entire wardrobe. Essentially everything she wears is a piece of standard military attire for whatever the current time-frame is. Typically this means the entirety of the combat uniform, so while at one point this meant that she merely went around in colorful suits, it now means that she is constantly wearing a camouflage jacket and cargo pants, a plate carrier, a helmet, and gloves. This in itself already makes her presence rather odd, even in the incredibly militaristic Nova-Columbia, and the fact that she almost never parts with her guns makes it even worse. In extremely formal situations she will sometimes wear a dress uniform, but she always does so with great reluctance.

As for her personality, many have described her as "entirely ignorant of the world beyond the military", to put it bluntly. She seems almost incapable of understanding such things as "casual wear" and "relaxing" and "jeeps that don't have a massive mounted machine gun." She is almost always constantly on high alert, reacting to even the slightest signs of trouble. She can sometimes appear rather cold, but in reality, she cares deeply about her friends, and usually at least polite with strangers. Despite this, she is rather difficult to get along with much of the time, due to her utter lack of experience in the realm of social interactions.
