History

Early life

Roxy is the daughter of Team 7 member Alexander Fairchild and Gloria Spaulding. The two met when Alex was a soldier, stationed at Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. Gloria was the daughter of the base commander. Despite her father's dislike of Alex, Gloria and Alex grew close, but soon Alex was called away on another secret mission. Gloria, who had become pregnant, had no way of contacting him. Gloria later married another man and told everyone, including her daughter Roxanne, that the child was merely her stepchild.

Details on Roxy's life before coming to Project: Genesis are sketchy. But a picture of her past can be gleaned from comments Freefall makes over the course of the series.

During a dream sequence Roxy is called "trailer trash" by classmates from her Catholic school. This, along with Roxy's habit of sometimes wearing a crucifix necklace and comments during some conversations confirmed that she was raised a Catholic, though her behavior indicates that she is a lapsed Catholic.

Freefall tends to speak with something of a valley girl accent, hinting that she may have grown up somewhere in Southern California, though she visited her mother when staying in New York City. In Las Vegas Roxy had missed her mother by mere hours at a casino she had been working at. This could be a hint that Gloria Spaulding has a tendency to move often.

The Gen 13 Project

Roxy's father, Alex, was exposed to the Gen-factor, a substance which gave him and his fellow Team 7 members superhuman powers. Team 7's superiors, International Operations, thought that their children had inherited their powers and started Project: Genesis, testing and recruiting children who were gen-active from all over the United States. Roxy is the youngest member of Gen 13. She managed to escape Project: Genesis with them after they found out that the I.O. was planning to enslave them. During their escape, Roxy's powers manifested: she was now capable of manipulating gravity and took the codename Freefall. Roxy became infatuated with fellow teammate, Grunge, whom she sees as "the man of her dreams". She developed a jealousy of her statuesque teammate, Caitlin Fairchild, who is often ogled by Grunge, even though she likes Caitlin a lot.

Life after the project

Gen 13 relocated to San Diego after their escape and one evening, Roxy snuck out of the house barefoot to go to a dance club called The Soil Machine.[4] In the club, she found the alien, Queelocke, who was hunted by alien bounty hunters. Gen 13's mentor, John Lynch, noticed the aliens arriving on Earth and sent the rest of Gen 13 to help Roxy. They drove back the bounty hunters and the Queelocke became Roxy's pet. Shortly afterwards, Grunge finally returned her affections and the two became romantically involved. However, Grunge was unfaithful, insensitive and immature and their relationship often broke apart.

During her time in Gen 13, Roxy would find out that Alex Fairchild was her father and that her teammate Fairchild was her half-sister. She would also learn that the woman she thought was her foster mother was in fact her birth mother. Roxy was deeply upset that her mother had lied to her for her entire life, even if the lies had been meant to protect her. However, the two did eventually mend fences. It also led to frictions between her and Alex Fairchild, who had become the team's mentor. After Alex explained to her that he had no way of knowing about her, she came to accept him as a father, but Alex died protecting the team shortly afterwards.

Over the next few months, Roxy had a lot of arguments with her teammates, who had always had difficulties understanding Roxy's infatuation with Grunge, her smoking habits, and her general attitude. Their concerns were proven correct when Roxy found out that Grunge had been having an affair with Swift from The Authority. Despite this all, Roxy was still in love with Grunge. During this time, Roxy also became a bit of an otaku, with a great love for J-pop music and anime.

Roxy was thought to be killed in an explosion with the rest of Gen 13, but in fact, Gen 13 had been displaced to an alternate universe and they returned to their own Earth months later.

Mission

Salvatore is sitting in his office at Caligula's Casino while Maria appears and gives him the ordered sandwich. After a while Carl Johnson shows up and informs Salvatore about having worked with his son Joey Leone back in Liberty City and that he can do anything Salvatore wants from him. Carl is informed that a Shamal plane is arriving at the airport soon and it contains Forelli family hitman coming to kill Salvatore. Carl then makes his way to the Las Venturas Airport and steals a Dodo. He flies over to the Shamal and follows it. After staying behind Carl jumps out of his Dodo and gets in the Shamal plane, killing every Forelli inside as well as the pilot. He then flies the plane back to the airport, completing the mission.

Script

(Maccer and Kent Paul are tied upside down inside Salvatore's office, Tony the Parrot, Salvatore and Ken Rosenberg.)

Maccer: Top fuckin' buzz this. I'm peaking on the blood pressure alone.

Kent Paul: Yeah, t'riffic.

(Maria enters and hands Salvatore his sandwich.)

Salvatore Leone: Well, well, well... What have we got here?

Maria: Here's your sandwich.

Salvatore Leone: Who's this pretty thing?

Maria: I don't usually do this kind of shit you know.

Salvatore Leone: Heh, heh, heh. I like this girl. What's your name, kid?

Maria: Maria. And the service is not included.

Tony: Pay the woman, you fat fuck!

Salvatore Leone: You heard the bird!

Maria: Come on.

(Salvatore's bodyguards hands over a few papers.)

Maria: Are you kidding me? See you later, guys.

(Maria exits and Carl Johnson enters the office.)

Salvatore Leone: And who's this asshole?

Carl Johnson: The name's Carl Johnson, sir. Before working with Mr. Rosenberg here, I had the pleasure of doing business with your son, Joey, back in Liberty City.

Salvatore Leone: You know my Joey? I like that. So, kid, what can I do for you?

Carl Johnson: Well, Ken'll vouch for me, I'm a straight killer.

Ken Rosenberg: Oh, oh he, eerr, one man fucking army! Real dependable. Total fucking maniac, too.

Salvatore Leone: You know, the Forelli's are sending over a crew to hit me. Their flight gets in soon - traveling as a string quartet. I was going to send some of the boys over as a little welcoming committee, but, uh, maybe you can take care of it.

Carl Johnson: Thank you, sir. I guarantee you, you won't regret this.

Ken Rosenberg: Maybe I should go along

(Ken gets up and the couch moves as Maccer and Kent do.)

Maccer & Kent Paul: Waaarrrggghhh!

Ken Rosenberg: That's OK, I'm comfortable, I'm fine.

Salvatore Leone: You stay where you are, Rosenberg. I don't want you getting yourself lost.

Reward

The reward for completing this mission is $15,000 and respect. The mission "Saint Mark's Bistro" is also unlocked.

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The Freefall.

The Freefall was the personal starfighter of Jinkins.

Characteristics

It had two long-range laser cannons and could launch mechanized drone fighters.

The Freefall's laser cannons were more powerful in comparison to standard laser cannons, firing long range cyan beams capable of easily destroying most targets. This was made possible by Jinkins' use of a special sand from Lok's wastelands as part of the focusing array.

History

The Freefall took part in the liberation of the Karthakk system led by the pirate Nym and the Lok Revenants. Jinkins also flew his starfighter during Nym's attempt to retake his base on Lok from the Trade Federation.
