Background

Danielle is the daughter of Dr. Mark Ropchan who is currently a professor of Geology for the University of Virginia. Before he was established as a teacher, Mark would wander the world as a mining engineer who specialized in locating gasses, specifically methane. He would take Danielle with him to the sites which were located in isolated locations all over the world.

By far, Danielle’s favorite place to live was in Chiapas, Mexico. It also happened to be where she spent her teenage years. Unfortunately, there were many unforeseen problems with the mining in that area including strange occurrences underground. Eventually, the whole project was shut down due to a high occurrence of accidents and clashes with the local environmental groups.

Danielle got both her bachelor and master’s degrees at UC Berkeley in the field of Geology. She specializes in Seismicity and Liquefaction. After the 2011 Earthquake in Tohoku, Japan, Danielle was part of a think tank of specialists who were tasked with devising a plan for safer building materials. Danielle and two other engineers came up with “Flex Concrete” which, if used in building construction, would absorb shock up to a magnitude 7.5 quake. This breakthrough led her to working as a lead geologist in a large San Francisco Firm. The website of the Firm, Giles and Madsen, still have her listed on the company website with the footnote of “Left for sabbatical, 2013”.

As current Steward of the Nosferatu Clan, Danielle seeks to expand her knowledge of existing Warrens to understand how to better engineer them as technology progresses above ground. She also teams with other clans on extensive construction projects. Her knowledge of earthquake reinforcement and seismic sciences makes her building techniques ideal for current home of San Francisco. She has built or participated in the following projects:

Danielle also serves as a reconnaissance expert. Using her map and geology skills, she is proficient in finding and planning alternate routes and gauging the layout of the land when it comes to military or masquerade important operations. She is a noted contributor to the recent operation in Detroit, MI.



Tidbits

  • She is fond of numbers and loves charting out probabilities. She would make at least a dozen simulations before completing a geological report.
  • She is an aficionado of maps and can find both historical and modern maps of almost any large city in the world.
  • She was published in 10 different Universities in 3 different languages before she finished her Master’s degree.
  • Danielle also minored in organic chemistry and was once almost sued by a classmate for setting her cosmetics on fire. This incident was the only time Danielle was ever mentioned in UC Berkeley newspaper, “The Berkeley Beacon”.
  • She claims she can identify any carcinogen just by its smell.
