CHARACTER NAME: Sarah Jane Smith
SERIES: Doctor Who/The Sarah Jane Adventures (Character history. Because Doctor Who is kinda massive.)
CANON POINT: After the final episode of SJA
AGE: Roughly 60 (Depends on when exactly the last season of SJA was set)
APPEARANCE: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/0e/Sarah_Jane_Smith_2006.jpg

PREVIOUS GAME HISTORY: N/A

PERSONALITY: Sarah Jane is at her heart a reporter. She has never been able to resist investigating any mystery that comes her way. She initially met the Doctor because she was certain that the mysterious think tank her aunt had been invited to would yield a good story. This driving curiosity has stayed with her ever since. Though it took her a bit of time to figure out what to do with herself after being left back on Earth, she eventually fell back on investigation and finding that there were plenty of alien goings on right under her nose to keep her busy. Her first instinct will be to investigate everything about the ship. She is accustomed to strange things happening, it’s only natural that she shake off any initial confusion and set to work trying to determine what’s really going on.

In her youth Sarah Jane was very physically demonstrative, with a tendency to hold hands with everyone who wasn’t actively trying to kill her. After being left on Earth and getting involved in her personal alien dealings, she tended to be a bit more withdrawn. Given the dangerous nature of her work, she was unwilling to involve others. However, after Maria involved herself in her life whether she wanted her to or not, leading to Sarah Jane adopting Luke, she began letting people back in. And hugging a lot. That said, she is constantly aware of the danger her work presents to her young companions and is rather protective of all of them.

More specific than that, she's also a devoted, though unusual, mother. She will miss her children dearly, though ultimately take comfort in the fact that the ship is no place for them. She doesn't do well with very young children, finding babies merely “rubbery”, but tends to do quite well with the eight and up crowd. She tends to be very approachable, assuming she doesn't just go nosing around first.


Sarah Jane has a great distaste for resorting to violent resolution of problems. Although this is partially motivated by the youth of her companions, it goes back further than that. She simply believes that there is a better way. Whenever possible, she prefers to find a peaceful solution to conflict. In her experience, there are considerably more aliens who are simply lost and confused than who actually mean the Earth harm. Even when faced with violent opponents, she usually manages to find a clever way of sending them packing without resorting to heavy firepower. However, there have been occasions where, despite her best efforts, she has needed to resort to lethal force. These occasions do not sit easily with her.

Sarah Jane is a staunch feminist, as demonstrated by the fact that one her first adventure, she attempted to spark women’s lib in a medieval kitchen. Admirable, though probably not the best thing for the timeline. This is rooted in the simple fact that she knows herself to be every bit as competent as a man. This does not stop her from forming close friendships with old fashioned men such as Harry Sullivan, but she doesn’t let their friendship mean he can get away with being patronizing.

ABILITIES:
The closest thing she has to any sort of unusual ability is a strong resistance to mind control. She was hypnotized so many times in her travels with the Doctor that it simply... stopped working.

Sarah Jane is skilled at breaking and entering. It's not espionage if it's journalism! And she's one of the top journalists in England. She's also very adept at figuring out unfamiliar technology because of her extensive experience with alien investigation. Additionally, she has shown aptitude at constructing various devices.

While she abhors violence, she was actually a very good shot with firearms in her youth. This ability is most likely somewhat rusty. She also knows Venusian karate.

And of course, as a former companion to the Doctor, she is very good at running.

POSSESSIONS:
Clothing (Jacket, blouse, trousers)
Sonic Lipstick (It's like the Doctor's sonic screwdriver, but disguised as lipstick. It... well, basically does what the plot demands, but for this purpose will be limited to opening lockss, setting up resonance frequencies and putting up shelves rather quickly)
Watch (Reads energy signatures)
Wallet (Complete with pictures of her kids because keeping those on her phone is impractical with how often it gets smashed)

THIRD-PERSON SAMPLE:

It was a tight spot. There was no arguing with that. But it was clear from the moment they tried to use hypnosis that these invaders didn't know who they were dealing with. That wasn't terribly unusual. The Doctor tended to get the most attention for foiling alien invasions on Earth, leaving her attic setup to operate relatively unnoticed.
She preferred it that way. Bad enough that the kids got caught up in things when they willingly went into danger with her. Imagine if your average alien invader knew enough to target them at school.

So no, she wasn't surprised that they had underestimated her. But searching her pockets and leaving her lipstick? That was just sloppy.

It was simple enough to wait for them to leave her unattended. She clearly had more experience with this sort of thing than they did, the patterns were too easy to pick up on. A quick bit of sonic and she was out and free to get back to investigating.

The priorities had shifted a bit, of course. Now she had to find Sky and Luke before she continued. The invaders had, at least, had the good sense to confiscate their mobiles. An inconvenience she was rather accustomed to. There was a reason she had an attic full of alien technology and a fairly outdated phone.

She didn't make it far before she heard tapping. Oddly regular tapping.

Morse code. She did have brilliant children.

Character Information

Character Name: Sarah Jane Smith
Canon: Doctor Who/The Sarah Jane Adventures
Canon Point: End of The Sarah Jane Adventures
Character Journal: afterthesky

Appearance: Sarah Jane is of average height and build. She has aged rather gracefully, not really looking as close to sixty as she is. As part of that, she has auburn hair that doesn't show any particular sign of greying. She tends to dress in snappy professional clothing that allows her to go reporter mode at a moments notice while still allowing her to move easily if she needs to save the world.

Powers/Special Abilities: The only thing even close to a supernatural ability is a strong resistance to mind control. By virtue of it having happened so often in Classic Who that it just STOPPED WORKING a lot of the time. Though it is a resistance, not an immunity.

Also, while not a supernatural ability, I feel the need to note that she is conversational in Doctor. No one is fluent.

River Power: X-Ray vision

Reason for Character Choice: Sarah Jane is by far my favourite companion (me and half the fandom, yeah). I particularly enjoy the place she wound up in New Who, having travelled with the Doctor and later learned to do all this alien fighting independently. I've been playing her off and on for years and at this point I miss her, so I let the Who cast enable me.

Writing Samples

First-Person Transmission Sample: http://exitvoid.dreamwidth.org/667527.html

Third-Person Log Sample: It was the utterly mundane things that tripped her up, a lot of the time. Dealing with alien incursions was almost a regular occurrence, at this point. She knew what to do about those. Hypnosis, trying to find her way out of someone's clutches? Those were just part and parcel of the life she led. Even after the children came along, that was her life. She knew how to protect them from those dangers. She knew how to get them out.

It was what was quite possibly just an ordinary stomach bug that had her off balance.

Luke never got sick. The Bane had seen to that when they combined so many others. Even when she'd thought he was, it had turned out to be alien interference and brought her right back to the world she knew how to operate in. She had thought Sky might be the same, not being human. But it seemed that whatever was going around the school right now did affect her daughter's alien immune system.

Which was the even greater concern. Would this stay mundane? So far it seemed like an ordinary stomach ache, but who knew what might happen next. There wasn't a good point of reference for this. She'd rung Harry about it, but even with all his work with UNIT, this was new territory for him. Not to mention that he didn't have a practice anymore.

At least Martha Jones was back in the area, if it came to it. Which it hopefully wouldn't. For now, it was tinned soup and hot tea. Just like in any other home in England. She nudged the door open with her foot. "How are you feeling?"

"About the same." Even though she'd never heard that voice before from a child of her own, she still recognized it as the trademark voice of a sick child. "Tired and bored."

It was funny, how a child she shared no genetic material could still take after her so utterly. Of course Sky was frustrated having to stay in bed, even if she didn't feel up to doing anything else. This, at least, she had an idea about. She set the bowl and mug down on the bedside table and picked up the book that was sitting neglected there. "Now, what chapter were you on?"

afterthesky: (Thinking)
[Action: 2238 Stevens]

[Sarah Jane is going around the house unplugging most appliances and collecting blankets, warm clothing and towels]

[Phone]

Any thoughts on what they're really redirecting the power to? How is everyone holding up? Sexy, you're keeping an eye on him?
afterthesky: (Default)
[Action: Mayfield shops]

[Sarah Jane can be found shopping for Christmas gifts. She occasionally picks up an item and places it in her basket.

Sometimes she picks something up and sets it back down.]


No, that's something Luke would like.

[Later in the day, her shopping expedition takes on much more focus and determination and she examines such things as paper supplies and makes notes.]

Yes, that might work...

[Action: In and around 2238 Stevens]

[Sarah Jane returns home from the shops and tucks her purchases into a closet before stopping in the living room to readjust the picture of her with Luke and his friends. Once she finishes there she goes back outside to hang a wreath on the door with a small shake of her head.]
afterthesky: (NOT impressed)
[Action (Is there any other kind of post right now?): Ruined Streets]

[Eventually Sarah Jane had to split off from the rest of the group. The other people in her house were new to the town, they might not know what to expect. She doubled back looking for them]

I wish K9 were here...

[She's doing a fair job avoiding trouble as she seeks out Figaro and Naal, but she knows time is of the essence here]
afterthesky: (Smile)
[Action: Park]

[Sarah Jane is taking her dog for a walk. This would be an ordinary enough sight, if it weren't for the fact that her dog is a robot]

Well boy? Do you smell anything?

Mistress, I lack olfactory organs


[Action: Streets of Mayfield]

[Sarah Jane is still walking with K9 rolling along happily beside her]

I think that's enough of a walk for now. A lot of data to process, after all. I'll show you the edge of town later, I think you'll find it quite interesting.
afterthesky: (Glowy thing)
[Action, 1448 Mitchell Road (Specifically for Amy, housemates feel free to answer instead]

[Sarah Jane is knocking on the door, looking quite concerned. The Doctor thing is nagging at her]

[Action, near the edge of town]

[Sarah Jane is walking along power lines, studying her watch]

No, that's normal too...

[Phone]

Does anyone have thoughts on alternate ways of looking into some of the strange phenomena here? I tried looking for unusual power draws, but I wasn't able to find anything.
afterthesky: (Confused)
[Phone]

I know the mechanism through which this spreads is apparent, but does anyone have any idea as to the root cause?

[Action, at and around 2238 Stevens]

A [Sarah Jane is standing in the doorway, watching a cluster of zombies and fiddling with her watch. She frowns, not liking what she's reading]

B [In a moment currently clear of zombies, she has ventured out to collect samples from the area immediately around the house in empty jam jars. She's wearing a set of men's clothing borrowed from a closet and heavy gardening gloves. Not taking any chances.]

C [Anyone who happens to actually find themself in the house will find Sarah Jane in the study, analyzing the samples with her regained equipment]
afterthesky: (NOT impressed)
[Sarah Jane is used to many odd things. Waking up in strange beds is not something she particularly cares to become accustomed to though.

She sets the flowers down, crawls out of bed and notices what she is wearing. Racy lingeries. Honestly.]


As if not being able to find a decent pair of women's trousers wasn't bad enough.
