Ruth Tolliver is a woman of passions. She shows the same intense level of enthusiasm for everything she cares about, everything she is passionate about, be it people, or her job, or... sometimes, just the little pleasures in life. She constantly tries to see the best in people, and, when they don't meet up to her expectations, she can feel let down and hurt. However, she still has faith in the inherent good of the human race, and is hoping that her forays into the wider galaxy don't dent that faith.

Friends

Ruth is the sort of person who prefers to surround herself with friends. She's social and friendly, and will make the effort to get to know... well, pretty much anyone. In some ways, she would have been better suited to anthropology than linguistics, but languages were her first love. Growing up around three brothers, Ruth was always a bit of a tomboy, and usually finds herself ending up as "one of the guys", rather than having a gaggle of girlfriends.

Enemies

Well, if you don't like perky and bubbly, you won't like Ruth, simple as that. Her eternal optimism will get on the nerves of some, and there may even be some out there with some professional jealousy of her.

Lovers

Not an impossibility. Ruth's been divorced for six years, after a crappy four year marriage. However, she hasn't soured on the thought of love and relationships. She's just not necessarily permanently on the hunt for someone. If something happens, then great, but, if not... she's just as happy being on her own.

Hi

Also hailing from the camp of tomboy, Mere is rarely seen without a gaggle of male cohorts and is often the first to prove to anyone who considers her 'just a girl' that she is anything but.

Always first with a joke, be it a witty observation or sarcastic comment, she is determined to be cheerful, despite the resting bitch face she was graced with.

I cant see the two of them hating each other, and it would be interesting to see them form a friendship, given that both seem to prefer the company of the dangly group.

Perhaps they've met whilst on a mission at some point?
Does she like to eat - Mere is forever in the mess hall or out in Colorado Springs sampling whatever takes her fancy.

I'd be happy to explore options :)

Well, her tendency to see the best in people would get her past the quiet and implacable outer appearance of Taft, and he prefers bubbly to sarcastic. He gets enough sarcasm from officers on any given day. A tomboy would be refreshing as well, as that would be like dealing with a female soldier but without the rank worries.

He's divorced as well (twice) and they can always bond over bad memories and cups of hot chocolate (or bourbon).

It could certainly be an interesting combination. Ruth might even come across as a bit on the naive side, at least before you get to know her, so... maybe something there?

I can imagine that Ruth might have initial problems about making friends with the military, partly because they are largely unknown to her. However, the fact that her old friend Jake now works at the SGC as well will certainly go some way to removing her wariness of them. She doesn't have bad memories of he marriage or her divorce, and is, in fact, still friends with her ex husband, and likely friends with all her exes, but she'd certainly listen to his woes.

So what made it a crappy four year marriage if there are no bad memories?

Her marriage was crappy because they were the kind of couple who were better off as friends. It wasn't terrible, just... boring. Serious lack of passion there.
