Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew Up… in Britain between the wars. However, she was recruited by the United States government and began to work for them.

Living… in the United States, training new recruits for the United States Army and secretly representing the Strategic Scientific Reserve. She travels back and forth between the United States and the European front lines as her duties call for.

Profession… Operations Supervisor for the Strategic Scientific Reserve, a top-secret United States government agency. Although Peggy appears to be just another boot camp officer, she’s actually working with the scientist Abraham Erskine to see which of the recruits might be candidates for a secret supersoldier program. Though Peggy sometimes had to shoot down chauvinistic remarks from the cadets she trains (occasionally with a well-timed punch to the face), she has earned the respect of her higher-ups. 

Interests… dancing (when she has time for it).

Relationship Status… single. She's too busy with the war to have time for romance. But it can be hard not to be distracted when you’re working with Steve Rogers (a.k.a. Captain America). Unfortunately, their jobs mean they don’t have time to get away on dates.

Challenge… single-handedly taking down a villain, standing up to sexism, and effortlessly pulling off a bright-red lipstick. All of those challenges are in a day’s work for Peggy. And the biggest challenge is fighting Nazis in occupied Europe. Peggy’s main job is finding a soldier to recruit for Operation: Rebirth, a secret program to create supersoldiers who will fight for the Allied powers.

Personality… reserved and serious. As a British female officer in the United States Army in WWII, Peggy has to stay focused at all times to get the respect she needs. She’s an excellent soldier, but that doesn’t mean she has no sense of humor. Peggy is more likely to rely on her intelligence and dry wit than to be physically aggressive, although she can certainly pull out her secret services training when she needs to. But if there’s one thing to learn from Peggy, it’s that even the strongest people need help sometimes. Though her instinct is to close herself off, Peggy slowly realizes she’s stronger with friends by her side than she is alone.
