Background/History: Sawyer is one of the more mysterious characters seen in Black Lagoon. She works as a "cleaner" for the gangs in Roanapura, disposing of unwanted bodies. She also performs executions (usually in the process of disposing of said unwanted bodies), and has chopped up people for Mr. Chan (after Shenhua has dropped them off). Sawyer works out of a tiled room near a meatpacking business labeled "U.G. Pork." The room is covered in bloodstains, while Sawyer herself dresses in full doctor's scrubs, including goggles and face mask. This is probably due to her method of disposal—a chainsaw.

I'm fairly sure Sawyer first appears (as a cleaner) in Episode 11, Lock And Load Revolution. She is given a name in Episode 16, Greenback Jane, where we see here sans scrubs.

Personality/Motivation: To say Sawyer is a little odd is like saying the Arctic is a little cold. She certainly seems amoral, as she chops up screaming victims without a second glance. She also engages in some bounty work, and dresses in a very goth-like manner while doing so. At some point in her past her throat was cut, so she can only talk with an Ultravoice. Take that away from her, and she curls up into a catatonic ball.

Quote: "Usually I'd dismember you and call it good."

Powers/Tactics: Unlike most everyone in Roanapura, Sawyer doesn't use a gun. Instead, she fights with the weapon she's most familiar with—an industrial-sized chainsaw. Said saw has a blade some three feet long, and is shown cutting through walls as well as people. Sawyer can even block gunfire with it, although doing so will probably cause her to retreat. Her saw does seem to be rather cinematic in nature, as it doesn't jam when used to saw through sheet metal and the like. The saw also has an inch of Stretching, since the blade is almost as long as Sawyer is tall.

Appearance: Sawyer is rather short and slim, standing (maybe) 5'4" or so. Her hair is black and her manner of dress is either surgeon's scrubs, or a goth-like dress over striped shirt and stockings outfit.

Designer's Notes: Sawyer was built to be a slightly tougher-than-normal normal, while her chainsaw was taken from a similar design I made for the FPS Hero article I wrote for Digital Hero. If you want to make Sawyer tougher, up her STR, DEX, CON, and SPD, and give her a bigger saw. I don't recommend making her weaker, although you could get rid of her Missile Deflection and Lightning Reflexes.
