[1] Carpentry Toolbox (Might come out of the vault, but would be a pain in the ass to carry, given that she's not very strong)

BACKSTORY[1-2 Paragraphs MINIMUM 10-20 Sentences]: From an early age, Allison showed a fascination with materials that went beyond the average curiosity showed by children - she was constantly ruining both her and her parent's clothes in experiments with scissors and needles. Furthermore, she showed a very good understanding of mathematics, certainly ahead of other people her age (On average, at least). Throughout her education, she tended towards the more practical side of things, struggling with English and History, but excelling in Maths. Allison wasn't antisocial or anything either, though she didn't make particular efforts to meet new people once she'd settled into a comfortable circle of her friends. She was easy-going and easy to talk to, but not very outgoing by herself - get her talking about something she was interested in, though, and she could talk the hind legs off a horse.

Outside of school hours, Allison spent a lot of time with her mother, who was a seamstress, and her father, who was a carpenter. They encouraged her interests, always bringing cast-off pieces back to her so that she could mess around with them to see how they would interact. By the time she reached her early teens, Allison was able to competently stitch and repair her own clothing if she so wished - a skill which she put to use when she decided to modify her jumpsuit with a four leaf clover on the right shoulder, which she was soon told to remove by her parents, knowing it wouldn't go down well with the higher-ups. Her father often brought home scrap-wood from his workshop and let Allison use it for anything she wanted, as well as providing her with basic woodworking tools that were often old or rusted, but she made do. They worked on a number of projects for their family's room, building new chairs and such to decorate the otherwise slightly bland space.

Allison breezed through the GOAT, as her parents hadn't provided any undue stress for her, emphasizing multiple times that they would be happy with whatever she ended up doing. She was over the moon when she was assigned to  manufacturing, particularly for clothing and armour. Carpentry remained a side hobby that she practiced with her father, but it was definitely secondary to her primary interest in her job. She was a dedicated and diligent worker, rarely making a mistake as she took the time to make sure she did it right the first time around, a skill carrying over from her father, as fuck ups on their projects tended to be harder to correct than a few stray stitches.

On her eighteenth birthday, her parents presented her with the biggest presents they'd ever given - a sewing kit that a friend of her mother had made of sturdier materials than the standard, and a toolbox of carpentry tools that a friend of her father's had decided to hand down as he grew too old. To this day, she enjoys her job - working happily for her allotted hours, spending some time socialising, some with her parents, and the rest in her own small room - which has many of her little projects littered around, most of them still a work-in-progress.
