Okay, what sort of person is she? Is she good at math? Does she have a degree in engineering? Computer Science? Business? Accounting? Is she obsessed with organization or spreadsheets or puzzles? Is this a temp job for her while she’s waiting for her art career to pick up?
Knowing what motivates her will not only help you figure out her profession, but it will help you figure out exactly how she’d get mixed up in something dangerous. An accountant, an engineer, and an artist would be looking for different things.
Hope that makes sense. 🙂
