Rebel is a white metaller and one of only a handful of engineers in the UK doing this highly skilled work. Rebel was one of the few choosing to be an apprentice as a motor engineer. Many of the workshops are desperate for her skills as most of her colleagues (all male) are nearly 3 times her age and considering retirement. Her world is one of traditional engineering, one where a thou reigns and a millimetre is of little use.
