Aeryn SunIn 300-500 words total, tell us your...Character's background (their past and present):
Aeryn was born like most Peacekeeper -- about a command carrier, directly into the military life that should have lasted her whole life. She was taught to obey Peacekeeper doctrine, and their view of the universe (admiration of the weak, hatred of the weak, purity of the blood lines, and so on), and did so with flying colors. She excelled rapidly. She was an an exemplary soldier and prowler pilot, moving up the ranks while very young.
She had little to no problem fitting into and excelling in her world, and turning her back on those near her who broke the rules of that world, even her own lovers included. While these decisions didn't always sit well with her, she still made the choices inline with her training.
This was all turned on its head with the introduction of her present-era canon, where she was taken prisoner during a rebellion by a handful of prisoners, and which to her receiving a demarcation of being 'irreversibly contaminated' by a superior for trying to stand up for one of them. Irreversible Contamination being a death sentence, Aeryn was persuaded to escape with the prisoners once more, and now she is part of the erstwhile rag tag crew of prisoners all trying to get back to their homes. Character's personality:
Accerbic. Anti-social. Militant. Callus. Biased. Fond of Weapons and Piloting. Born and bred to be a soldier Aeryn has never had any problem following her expected duties, but her entire world has turned upside down and personality is still in the washer spin-cycle of having her whole way of life, her people, and her home world taken from her. This means that depending on the time of day, the situation she's in, and how those situation resound in her she can react a lot of different ways still.
Aeryn is amazing stubborn, and clear sighted. Her entire view of the world was black and white, and suddenly there are grey's in it. That she can admit are there. Very. Begrudgingly. She, also, has a resevoir for compassion that is growing, albeit slowly, and against all admission, except that she doesn't like it or want it. She's an incredibly good teammate, if a hard person to befriend sometimes on a personal level. But incredibly worth it once the work is put in.Character's skills/abilities/powers:
A well-trained solider, skilled in weapons use, hand-to-hand combat, and piloting. Any special equipment your character is bringing along? This includes weaponry, magic items, etc.:
One standard-sized Peacekeeper pulse pistol.
And a whole lot of attitude.Are you bringing your character to ten_fwd from another game? If you are, which game?:
Nope. Aeryn is coming in brand new, and from early on in her canon. This is going to be so much fun. And Crazy. Don't forget crazy. If you answered yes above, briefly summarize how they were changed by and what challenges they faced in the climate of their previous game(s):
N/AWhy do you want to play this character in Ten Forward, and what do you plan to do with them?
Because Aeryn could use some more people in her life, honestly.
More than just the five on Moya. More than simply John poking at her to find the 'humanity' he believes is in her somewhere, just waiting to be uncoiled and unstunted. Because it'll be fun to watch her grow through both Ten Forward plots, and canon as they both are happening at her, while she's changing and growing all along.
