Happy birthday, Amelia Earhart

The legendary aviator (aviatrix?) Amelia Earhart was born 115 years ago today. She's one of L.L. Hundal's favorite historical figures; she even wears her hair a little like Earhart used to. We may be releasing a ROLF! battle scenario featuring her if SOMEONE GETS ME THE FINAL MANUSCRIPT FOR REVIEW AND ART-PLACEMENT! (Yes, Hundal. I'm talking about YOU!)

In the meantime, here's Earhart ala ROLF!, designed by L.L. Hundal.

Traits: Dead-Eye, Honorable, Nimble
Combat Maneuvers: Basic Attack, Bitch Slap, Disarm, Dodge, Do Lunch, Double Strike, Knock Out, Murderous Mitts, Run Away!, Seduce, Strike Pose, Sure Shot

Earhart, her plane, and her navigator Fred Noonan vanished without at trace over the Pacific in July of 1937. They were attempting to fly around the world, and if Earhart had been successful, she would have been the first woman pilot to accomplish that feat. Her fate remains a mystery to this day.
