"The prim and proper Monica Sonderguard may seem to be an unlikely candidate for the rough and tumble mercenary life, but she more than meets the minimum requirements. Before settling on A.I.M., Buns explored a number of careers: kindergarten teacher, geriatric nurse, Danish sharpshooter at the Atlanta Olympic games, and professional soldier."
- A prim and proper prude, her uptightedness goes hand-in-hand with her professionalism and skill.
- Believes herself better than anyone else.
- Has a sense of superiority. She's a merc because she wants to, not because she has to.
- Puts her feelings before logic.
- To a Danish person her dialect sounds German or Russian. (To a person with knowledge of the russian language and accent she definitely doesn't sound any russian at all. Ivan Dolvich has classic russian accent)
- Teaching (Expert)

- Speaks with a sterotyped german accent despite being Danish.
- Southern Denmark borders Germany, and has an odd mixed dialect of both in certain places, which may explain her accent. Her last name Søndergård may be a reference to this area, as it means Southeren-farm.
