Grace Nam is a character in the Lilydale series.
Grace always broke expectations even when it meant she stuck out somehow. She scavenged or bought spare components to build her own computers. She played soccer with the neighbourhood boys and got into fights with them but it was her sharp tongue that landed her in trouble with the teachers. She looked and acted as a troublemaker. To survive, Grace learned how to soften her image, to better play with and manipulate preconceptions; she bought fake glasses and adopted the geek girl persona.
Graces skills earned a National Scholarship at KAIST but after graduating, she decided to join the Army. Her athleticism and daring paid off where she was assigned to the ROK Army Special Warefare Command before earning a spot in the 9th Special Forces Brigade known as the Ghosts. Despite her unorthodox behaviour within the highly disciplined ROK army, she gained notice for exemplary tech skills and for being highly adaptable to situations.
Grace plays with expectation because she wants people to underestimate her. Before she how to control the situation and was never afraid of failure until the stakes became this critical.
