Miss Anne Pollicino is a normal human. She has no impressive powers or strange and wonderful knowledge that allows her to cast spells or use psionics. However, she does have access to Project: Spitfire's MAX technology, even if she hasn't used it herself. Yet.
Limitations / Enhancements:
Laboratory: Anne is a techie that works for Project: Spitfire, and as such, she has complete access to Jenny Swensen's MAX technology. She could conceivably build herself a MAX suit all her own, should she have such an inclination - and the requisite funding.
Dulled Sense / Vision: Anne has to wear big ol' glasses, as her vision isn't all that good. Without such aid, she must make vision-based Awareness ACT rolls at a -2 RS, which can be a bit of a hindrance when you work with electronics all day.
Computers: in addition to her ability to build and repair computer equipment, Anne is a master programmer and mathematician, having built powerful event outcome prediction programs. Her Intellect in this area should be considered +1 RS.
Detective / Espionage: a CIA spook, Anne knows her way around the ol' cloak and dagger, even if only academically speaking. Intellect and Awareness ACTs she makes in this area ought to be rolled at a +1 RS, since she at least does her homework.
Electronics: in addition to her impressive programming credentials, Anne is also quite the competent electronic technician. She should receive a +1 RS on any ACT roll required when designing, building, or repairing electronic devices or circuits.
Engineering: Anne's no slouch where mechanics are concerned. She is well-versed in the creation of mechanical devices on top of her skills with electronics and computers, and should receive a +1 RS when applying this knowledge to their design, repair or construction.
Guns: as a card-carrying member of the CIA, even if she never actually flashes such identification, Anne can wield most firearms with competence. She should do so at a +1 RS, whether brandishing standard, semi-automatic, or fully automatic rifles or pistols.
Law Enforcement: as part of the Central Intelligence Agency, Anne has to know the laws and how to enforce them. Her Intellect in such areas ought to be considered +1 RS. Furthermore, this skill grants her the ability to use Guns as well.
A member of Project: Spitfire, Anne can rely upon that organization for aid should she find herself in trouble (their techie supply is dwindling). Since the Project is an arm of the CIA, she could possibly get help from that group as well, if it weren't too much of a hassle for them.
While at work, Anne tends to wear a big white lab coat, most often over the conventional, professional-looking clothes. If she's doing something in the 'office', she'll usually ditch the lab coat and let her business attire speak for itself.
Miss Anne Pollicino (known to everybody as just Miss Pollicino) comes across as an eager beaver, a lady who goes out of her way to do her job well. That may be because she's just really good at it, but she seems to actually enjoy what she does.
And since she works for the CIA, that's not always the nicest of work.

The personal background of Miss Anne Pollicino is virtually unknown, other than the 'Miss' part. It is known that she is a member of the Central Intelligence Agency, working for them in the capacity of a techie. She was so good, in fact, that she got pulled into Project: Spitfire by Edmund Roth, an old associate that needed her expertise when getting the group started.
She was integral to the first mission the Project undertook, which involved the disruption of the Soviet MAX tests in Afghanistan. She was absorbing all the intelligence on the mission, and doing success projections based on the info she was getting from Roth. Of course, the mission succeeded, and Miss Pollicino was retained to help the Project out on further operations.
For instance, she put the Mark 3 MAX suit back together after it got trashed in battle with Nicaraguan soldiers, during a mission to determine whether or not the Central American country was utilizing MAX technology. Later, after this operation, she was helping Jenny Swensen to better utilize her Spitfire suit, by assisting in her training maneuvers.
In addition to this, Miss Pollicino acts as a sort of tactical liaison in all of the Project's missions, whether Jenny Swensen, Jake Travest, or anybody else is wearing the armor. Though the current status of the Project is unknown, it is assumed that Pollicino is still working for them, if not actually wearing the suit on missions. After all, both Jenny and Jake are out of the picture.
After all, the Project seems to enjoy putting their most talented technicians in the line of fire.
