History: Rikki Buchanan is a young Hispanic girl who grew up in the meaner streets of the borough of Queens in New York City. A known juvenile delinquent, she has spent time in and out of juvenile prison for petty thefts she committed to survive or, later, for thrills.

When Baron Zemo took her school hostage in order to draw out Captain America, who was teaching there in his civilian identity, Rikki managed to sneak away from the school in order to aid the Captain, at first without his knowledge and later without his approval (see Baron Zemo; Captain America).

Finding her enthusiasm contagious, Captain America has reluctantly taken it upon himself to train her as his new partner. To this end, he has given her a uniform similar to that worn by his World War II partner, Bucky.

Role-Playing Notes:
Rikki is (perhaps overly) enthusiastic about helping out Captain America, constantly seeking acceptance and eager to prove herself capable of being his partner/sidekick. She sees him as the father figure she never had in her life. With training and experience she may prove herself to be a genuine hero in her own right.

EDITS: Improved her base stats, adjusted skills accordingly, trimmed the Techniques down to a manageable list, and added role-playing notes.
