HISTORY : Tate Salvaggi, or Trashyard Tate, was originally from New York where her dad worked as a trashman. Being an odd child, she spent most of her childhood in the house, messing with junk and trinkets that she’d find in the streets, even building things with them. She thought everybody in the city was too wasteful and threw out so much useful stuff, and when she was eighteen, she moved to Calisota and opened a scrapyard in St. Canard. There, instead of throwing out their junk, people would bring it to her, where she would take it apart and sort the material and pieces into extremely organized piles, for her own convenience as well as that of her customers. In her spare time, she’ll take some junk and try to craft something new from it, sometimes even functioning weapons. Being neither hero nor villain, she doesn’t discriminate and will do business with anybody regardless of affiliations. On the surface, she may seem like a reclusive person who doesn’t have a lot to say, but when engaged just enough, Tate becomes more open toward people who are willing to listen.
