Sierra is an augmented woman in a powered suit of armor that covers her entire body, although her imposing height and her armor concealing any indications of her gender and humanity makes people think of her as a robot at first glance. Sierra was a part of Project Chevalier, which was intended to create super soldiers, but it was canceled due to a combination of high costs, constant delays and setbacks, the augmentations having a high risk of death and/or disfiguration, and confliting interests between the project leader and their superiors. Project Chevalier was then superseded by Project Paladin, which was intended to be a more cost-effective alternative that didn’t require augmentations. Project Paladin eventually resulted in the Heavy Armor Rapid Development suit, or H.A.R.D. suit, which offered the same amount of protection as an unshielded Chevalier suit, but was much easier to use by non-augmented personnel, at the cost of slightly redused mobility.
