-Dr. Sarah West, Ghostbuster, F, 23
Things to Know About:
The things used to weaken ghosts for capture, they shoot out a widely-varying stream of energy that strips away the negative energy that ghosts use to maintain existence with a stream of protons, which weakens them for capturing using the portable capture devices. Crossing the streams could result in the end of all life in our world, and is not recommended in most situations. Thankfully, a failsafe has been installed to keep the streams from crossing in such a way, though it can be turned off for emergencies. Upgrades exist for it, but they're still in transit from New York.
Used to trap ghosts, they isolate the spiritual being and prevent them from escaping. The box is very hot after captures; touching it directly without safety gloves is not advised. Looking into it is also advised against. If opened without being cleared out in the storage unit first, the ghost will be released.
A currently-unknown vehicle being refurbished for the use of the LA Ghostbusters. It has room for all four Ghostbusters, the four Proton Packs, and other miscellaneous storage. Presumably, it also has a top-mounted device. It's expected to be out of the shop later this week.
A machine to store ghosts after they've been captured. It's powered by its own generator. If it gets shut off, it will probably follow suit with the New York device and release all the captured ghosts. Turning it off is a very, very bad idea. Based off the Mark II system; Egon sends upgrades for it every once and a while.
Degrees in Economics, Psychology and Physics, light work with Proton Packs
A thin, short woman with jet-black hair and a single white streak on the right side hanging just below her shoulders, Sarah fit’s the look of the ‘manager’ of the LA Ghostbusters. Usually opting for dark-colored business suits, her Ghostbusters jumpsuit is notably more form-fitting than those of the New York branch, and her Proton Pack as well has been modified from its base design. She has intelligent green eyes and pale skin. It’s been noted that she has a penchant for scarves.
Very sly and somewhat unprofessional, Sarah displays her knowledge of the human psyche with a cool, fast-paced demeanor. With a New Jersey accent, an indomitable will, and with enough charisma to sell ice packs in Antarctica, there are few more qualified to be the de-facto head of the LA Ghostbusters. She doesn’t like forming relationships with clients or co-workers, but despite that tends to put up an un-serious front, almost like everything was a game. She’s smart enough to be able to handle a lot of the business side of the LA branch, and almost everything but the Proton packs were handled by her in setup.
Before becoming a Ghostbuster, Sarah was a newly-graduated college student with a liking for the supernatural. Who else would she seek employment with than the celebrity EXPERTS of the paranormal, the Ghostbusters? Though the New York group said that four was plenty for New York City… they offered her a position as a follow-up to the new Detroit branch, in Los Angeles. Coming from a well-off family in New Jersey, setting up was expensive, but mostly not a problem, and Dr. West was off to Los Angeles before the month was out. Up to this point, she’s been setting things up for the opening of the new Los Angeles Ghostbusters, including renovations to the LA Headquarters, Ecto-2, and setting up the containment unit, as well as hiring the new LA Ghostbusters, though opening day isn’t quite yet…
Despite not acting like it or really saying it, she inherited a massive fortune from her grandparents and is actually insanely rich.
