Sway spent the majority of her young adult life boosting cars for the money and the thrills. She ran with the same group of carjackers, a lot of whom are no longer in the game or no longer even in the world. The nearest and dearest to her was her fellow booster Randall “Memphis” Raines, and the two engaged in a relationship that lasted a number of years.
At the height of their run in the life, Memphis honoured a request from his mother to get out of the boosting game so his younger brother – who she felt looked up to him – wouldn’t fall into it as well, and he took up and left. While he offered to take her along, Sway wasn’t ready to go, wasn’t ready to give it up, and found herself abandoned when he took off to who knows where, quitting it all cold turkey. It wasn’t the same without him though, and eventually she stopped boosting as well, instead taking up two jobs – auto mechanic and bartender – because she discovered you have to work twice as hard when it’s honest.
Physically, Sway’s a little thinner than she used to be when she was back in the life. A lot of hard work and hard times will do that to you. She wears her hair in bleach blond dreads and dresses in anything that shows off what few curves she still has, save when she’s in the garage. She has myriad tattoos, some that show at all times and some that you have to be incredibly intimate with her to ever see.
She's from the street, lived a hard life, fended for herself and is generally a bit of a tough girl. She can be coy and playful sometimes, when the going's good, but when it comes down to it, Sway's the first to buckle down, the first to get her done. If she doesn't like what you're saying, she'll damn well tell you, point blank, no sugarcoating. Flip side is, she'll tell you just the same if she's down with it.
She's a little cocky, has a bit of an ego, thinks she's tough shit and talks big. Maybe bigger than she can spread herself sometimes. It's gotten her into more trouble than she cares to admit to, but she always gets herself out. Maybe that's why she thinks she's all that.
Boosting cars, fixing cars, bartending driving under pressure and at high speeds.
She's slow to trust and always on guard, used to fending for herself and getting nothing but trouble in return for it. She can be a little overzealous sometimes, a little over the top, and her general personality sometimes rubs people the wrong way.
