Mint

"If at first you don't succeed, punch! Punch again!!"

The youngest of three children, Minal knows what it's like to be on the low rung of the totem pole. Runt of the litter, she's seen her share of hand-me-downs, and as a nerdy gearhead, she'd also seen her share of hazing. Unwilling to accept the hand she was dealt, it didn't take long for her to make a name for herself with a few well-placed punches. Graduating with top honors from Rutgers, Minal then joined the Marines, where a close call with an improvised explosive nearly took her life. Equipped with reinforced prosthetic hands of her own design, she's looking to make a name for herself in not only engineering, but with the only martial art that ever suited her fancy: boxing!

Style:Prosthetic Boxing
Signature Move:Lock and Load -- PHYSICAL THROW
Signature Ability:RUSH -- BLITZ
