Like the vast majority of the GI Joe team, Freestyle is but a normal human, lacking special powers of any variety. Aside from some advanced, government-issued hardware, Freestyle only has her wits, her natural ability, and a predilection for mayhem with which to fight evil.
Hindrances / Augmentations:
Helmet (s): in addition to protecting her head, providing it intensity 8, or +2, protection against physical injury, this gear helps to provide Freestyle breathable air when she's flying (or falling from) so high that the air pressure is too weak to readily support normal respiration.
Knives (s): Freestyle always has at least one blade on her person at all times, because it's just so useful. Hers is made from m.s. 13 materials, and can either be used to cut through items of up to like m.s., given the time, or to inflict +2 slashing damage in melee.
the Night Boomer (i): a variation on the classic, Freetyle's Night Boomer is a night-themed Skystriker, one upgraded with the latest in aeronautic technology. This powerful, swing-wing fighter jet is truly majestic in flight, and is described in its own vehicular entry.
Sidearm (a): in addition to her submachine guns, Freestyle carries at least one backup piece. She can either discharge one round from this weapon to inflict her Agility +4 in damage, or a three-round burst to inflict her Agility +5 in damage.
Submachine Guns (a): Freestyle's mission loadout includes one small SMG, which can discharge one round to inflict her Agility +4 in damage, a short burst of such to inflict her Agility +5 in damage, or be fired continuously to inflict her Agility +6 in damage.
Aerial Combat (a): in addition to being able to fly an aircraft effectively, Freestyle can fight with one as well. Whenever she's behind the stick of an aircraft, Freestyle may resolve any relevant combat card play at one difficulty level lower than is normally required.
Boxing (s): essential military training, Freestyle has learned how to defend herself should she find herself without weaponry. She may divide her pre-card play action score between two unarmed melee strikes, the second of which she may attempt as a contingent action.
Driving (a): you don't practically grow up in a taxi cab in the Bronx without picking up several advanced driving techniques. Freestyle can operate any ground vehicle effectively, no matter how dense the surrounding traffic, reducing the difficulty of relevant card play.
Guns (a): a portion of her standard Air Force training, Freestyle uses this skill both alone and while flying her Night Boomer. She can fire any standard, semi-automatic, or fully automatic rifle or pistol at one difficulty level lower than is usually necessary.
Military / United States (w): Freestyle was born and raised in the Bronx, and knew from childhood the nature of what she'd like to do as an adult. She has a natural understanding of military policies and procedures, and can function within a military unit effortlessly.
Piloting (a): her claim to fame, Freestyle is a top-notch pilot. She can operate just about anything that flies, from fixed-wing aircraft to swing-wing fighters to helicopters. When flying any aircraft, Freestyle may resolve handling actions at a reduced difficulty.
As a member of the GI Joe team, Freestyle can readly consider that anti-terrorist organization a reliable contact, for the Joes always look out for their own. She likely has numerous other contacts in military and professional driving circles as well.
Thrill-Seeker: it's not that she's reckless by any means, but Freestyle simply can't relax unless everything is blowing up around her, whether figuratively or literally. She grew up in a chaotic environment, and anything less simply feels boring to her.
While on the job, Freestyle wears a long sleeved, collared grass green shirt, grass green trousers, black leather boots and gloves, a green leather belt, and while flying, black web gear, a black helmet featuring a red visor, and typically a breathing mask of some sort.
While some people are unnerved by chaos, Jocelyn is soothed by bedlam when it breaks out around her, making her feel right at home! Having grown up in this fashion, she pursued work in the only field that seemed to foster the mayhem she craves, working as a fighter pilot!

The daughter of Dominican Republic immigrants, Freestyle was almost born in her father's taxi cab. Raised in the midst of New York City chaos, its hectic traffic in particular, Freestyle grew to love existing in that high-stakes head space, and continually seeks it out.
To this end, looking for a job full of mayhem, Freestyle enlisted in the Air Force. Feeling that being a top-notch fighter pilot would scratch the itch she's felt her entire life, Freestyle found herself in the field soon after graduating from Advanced Flight Training.
With her record-setting mission exploits getting her noticed, Freestyle was aggressively recruited by GI Joe. Once she could find her way through the Joes' brutal, high-attrition entrance exam, Freestyle was given a place on the team - and the keys to her own Night Boomer.
Mainly using that modified Skystriker in a ground support role for the Night Force, Freestyle occasinally has the opportunity to shoot down Cobra aircraft while on the job, making it more than worth her while. After all, what's a bigger rush than a dogfight in combat jets!
Freestyle has become beloved by GI Joe once they got to know her. Sure, she's saved their bacon numerous times from on high, but once they sampled her masterful cooking and inexplicable music collection, they found out that she's truly one of them!
