Living... wherever her work with astrophysicist Jane Foster takes her. Right now that means the deserts of New Mexico.
Profession... college intern. Even though Darcy is majoring in poli-sci, she winds up assisting Jane Foster and Erik Selvig on their work with unexplained cosmic phenomena. It turns out she was the only person to apply for the gig.
Interests... butting into other people’s lives, speaking her mind, tasering anything that looks dangerous, and calling Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, “mew-mew.”
Relationship Status... single but looking. Darcy is never hesitant to point out a handsome man when she sees one. When she first meets the alien god Thor, she quips, “You know, for a crazy homeless person... he's pretty cut.” While she’s not dating anyone now, Darcy wouldn’t say no to working with (or going out with) an attractive co-worker.
Challenge... surviving the weirdness that comes her way. When Darcy signed up for this internship, she had no intention of getting involved in an inter-galactic battle involving a God of Thunder (i.e. Thor). While she wants to help her friends, she also has her limits. She once exclaimed, “I am not dying for six college credits!”
Personality... blunt, outspoken, sarcastic, and very funny. Although she doesn’t have the brilliant brain of a scientist and she can sometimes be a little oblivious, Darcy is eager to contribute to Jane and Erik’s work in whatever she can. She can be a bit self-centered and lazy, but her detail-oriented mind also picks up on little connections that they miss. She’s immensely loyal to her coworkers/friends and wants them to be successful in their professional and personal lives. But she’s not necessarily the most tactful person – she’ll happily state what’s on her mind even when it embarrasses those around her. Most of all, though, Darcy is a regular quip machine, cracking jokes in even the most dire situations.
