Let's see if you like this one
Name: Kyth (Aka: Kitty but i don't recommend using it in front of her)
Weapon: Sword and Shield, until she places her eyes on the first pistol.... Sword and pistol/dual pistols there after.
Bio: A bit absent minded and not very talkative until she has drunk a little, beer being her favourite. She is always thinking about new buildings and designs. Whenever she has spare time she will rush to the great hall , pull out a scrap of paper and start drawing the next building she wants to create.
She also takes her duty very seriously. Training endlessly to perform better in the defence of her fortress. She is a bit obsessed with perfection. She believes in armor, always trying to have the best available (for everyone) and despises those who go to combat unarmoured. Suicidal fools she calls them. "Getting yourself killed will not help our friends at home!"
This should be quite fun, I will probably just refer to her as Kyth so I don't need to figure out how to work in the Kitty name while keeping that "don't say it in front of her" vibe. I need to rework my profession assignments a bit (I have builders helping out on the farms, but with the new farmer, I don't need that any more) so I can create some instances of her doing the sketches of buildings.
Good news, I already have your gnome (one of the original builders, not the new builder/miner) training with a stone sword and wooden shield (no access to metal yet), I think they are already level 20+ in those skills. So once the goblins start coming your gnome should be fine dealing with them along with the rest of the squad.
There should be some interesting interactions between her and the gnome called Arkady, as the person who picked them requested to be a Highlander (the no armor, 2 handed wielding, neck chopping perk). However that person also described them as being "of few words" so it'll probably just look like your gnome is yelling at them constantly for the lack of armor and they are not listening.
