Lore -
Pearl is a wildcard character meaning she has no relation to any faction, she is a very careless person that always ends up breaking something along her path. But she does have one strong definite passion, the record of chewing the most bubblegum, currently she stands at the worlds 4th most chewed bubblegum and now she seeks to aim higher. But she does have side hobbies of blacksmithing with her father that had recently been repairing and designing the weapons of other 'Freelancers'. A project that her father worked on was the 'Strongarm' a heavy behemoth with great force in power. Her father has been getting ill and needs money for his well-being, only being a blacksmith and craftsmith of sorts they had no money to spare. The business was already scarce and with all the new requests for specialized pistols and hand-sized cannons the shipment of materials put them back to zero money. Pearl, being the quirky girl she is wants to help her father earn money as a 'Freelancer', not the safest job for a young girl but what else can she do but that? At first she did say she could host a contest for bubblegum chewing but even she knew that sounded stupid.
