Occupation on Ship:
Loyal to those he considers friends, and fiercely protective of his crew. He's fairly open about most things, but can be very secretive when he wants to be.
Growing up as a thief on Persephone, Ruishi developed skill at hiding valuable things that he could sell later. This would prove to serve him well during the Unification War, where he was an inventory officer on a technically unaffiliated ship, which secretly supported the Independents. He was in charge of finding places on the ship to hide supplies going for Independent armies. After the war was over, however, the ship he was on fell on bad times. Knowing when to cut his losses, he took everything he could carry and disappeared at the next stop. After selling what he'd taken from his shipmates, he decided to go into business for himself, and used the money to buy a cheap, Dragonfly class ship. It was a run down piece of go-se, but Ruishi recruited an old mechanic friend of his to help fix it up. Soon enough, it was in flying condition, and he put together a crew. Now, after several years of finding any work they can do, Ruishi has fallen into a routine with his ship and crew, feeling comfortable being the captain.
Occupation on Ship:
Snarky, Sarcastic, Cynical are all the perfect ways to describe Tai. Even in the most serious and dangerous of situations, Tai will be caught making a quick observation or some sarcastic comment about their hopeless situation. Whether it's a shell or all that there is is anyone's guess, but nobody to anyone on the crew's knowledge has gotten anything out of Tai but some joke or whitey observation.
Tai was born on an outer rim planet near the edge of the solar system where he grew up helping his family around the farm, working out a living like most other outer rim settlers. Along with that came learning how to handle a weapon and dealing with the 'local color', everything that comes along with living in such a rough environment. Eventually the war came and Tai found himself drifting closer and closer towards the center planets (although he never fought in the war). Finally he settled on a small smuggling vessel with a certain Ruishi Gao. The two didn't start out as close friends, but eventually they grew to be best friends and the two ended up leaving the crew and started a ship of their own. Since then they've been living job to job just as before but on their own terms, taking life as it comes at them.
Player name: Lucy Took
Character name: Iris Aquilla/Silvia(Working name)
Occupation on ship: 'Passenger' "Companion"/Assassin
Personality: Very hard to read. Flirtatious one moment, cold the next. Easily bored.
History: Trained to be a companion at a young age, Iris made her reputation quickly. She quickly tired of the normal work and decided to specialize- secrecy became her reputation. She developed a choosing system that allowed her to choose her clients in a system that quickly gained a reputation for being like winning the lottery, no one but her(And perhaps the guild) would ever know that a request was made, making her desirable for those wishing for secrecy. After spending a while with this system, she started wondering how easy it would be to kill a client. Too easy. Only the guild and the clients ever knew that she was there...and she had enough reputation to leave the guild...
So she dropped out, kept her secretive system and started building her knowledge of poisons while becoming acquainted with lists of men with bounties. She created an anonymous system to receive requests for assassination. After several months of training on the side of working she made her first kill, and quickly built her skill in making deaths seem natural...a heart attack, a tumor, an aneurism...
But even that became commonplace after awhile and she longed to see the stars...so she boarded a Dragonfly.
Occupation on ship
Hardly ever serious Eli likes to try and put a positive swing to matters despite how bleak they may seem at times. For the most part he's also a much more shoot first ask questions later sort of mentality. When things get to serious However as long as he gets what he desires he's happy.
Born on a ranch out on the outer rim planet, Eli learned how to use a gun at a young age by his father, to help ward off raiders and other scum. Unfortunately life on the outer rim of is never an easy one and ranching and farming and the bills they began to accumulate what with licenses began to grow just too much especially for a small time farm. In light of this, Eli moved to try and help his family whatever way he could, before long though work even on the planet began to both grow short and the pay was just not enough so he began taking jobs on ships as a hired gun. While certainly not the best starting out, Eli learned the way of the gun, and what it took out there in space. Eventually however, he made a name for himself as well as his two babies Jín and Fā xīn, pistol and lever action rifle, respectively, hopping from ship to ship before settling on the Tianlong working where ever his captain took them, always itching for a new fight or challenge.
Occupation on ship:
Usually reserved and almost overly calm, Leon is known to have a mean temper when stirred. To any who know him, it’s obvious he has an anger problem and that is likely why he acts so calm and restrained most of the time. Despite this he becomes very animated and energetic when talking on subjects he has an interest in.
Born to a well off family in the core worlds, Leon was raised and pushed towards success. With an above average intelligence, he was tutored young and had constant expectations of him. Leon played the dutiful son, never questioning, always studying, as a growing numbness spread inside him.
But as life went on, Leon found himself struggling to remain the dutiful child. Slowly a terrible anger and resentment grew inside him. It was on the day of his acceptance into a prestigious collage to become a doctor, that Leon first lashed out. Younger than the average for such an honour, one of his high school classmates made a small jest about him being a baby. Leon blew up and assaulted him, despite their age and size difference, Leon beat him to a pulp and putting him in hospital.
Leon’s parents were dismayed at his poor judgement, and angry and confused at his sudden inappropriate actions. Using their connections they made the problem go away, and life seemed to go on like normal for Leon. He continued to get remarkable grades even at the new collage and his parents breathed a sigh of relief. But several months later, Leon exploded again, putting another person in hospital.
Again his parents covered it up, but every few months things repeated as they grew worried about him. Soon after graduation, Leon realised he couldn’t fulfil his parent’s wishes for his life, he’d ruin everything with his anger. He didn’t think he could be the person they wanted. In a moment of serenity, he decided he had to follow his own path. He bought a ticket to the border worlds and set out to make his destiny. He spent the next five years out there before becoming the doctor on the Tianlong
Player Name: ToonNinja
Character Name: Chastity Munroe
Personality: Fairly happy-go-lucky, never dwelling much on the past. Rampant technophile, although not exclusively so. Harbors a mild addiction to Echo, which has caused some issues in the past.
History: Born on Bellerophon to a family of mechanics, Charity Munroe quickly came to understand the importance of learning life lessons. After the incident in which she lost her right leg from the knee down, along with her left hand, she learned three valuable things: the importance of workplace safety, how to build cybernetics, and- what she enjoys, personally- ambidexterity. Even after her parents' death, Chastity chose to interpret it as a sign to move on, to experience new and exciting things.
Cut to 4 years later, and Miss Munroe has taken up residence on the Tianlong, keeping the ship in shape and the weapons locked and loaded. She typically lurks in the engine room, but makes a habit of visiting fellow crew members.
Player name: Mrmegamax95
Character name: "John" (never gave his real name, just in case.)
Occupation on ship(Preface with 'Passenger' if not a crew member): Pilot/Navigator
Paranoid to the point of seeming insane, "John" trusts his life to no-one but himself. His morals are incredibly flexible, ("Why fight fair when you can win and live instead?") so long as there's a way out for himself... Sometimes the way out extends to his crewmates... Sometimes. However, "John" is for the most part, a loner. He is also very evasive about his past or his thoughts, preferring to keep them secret. It is apparent, though, that he does love to fly ships. Along with this, he seems to have taken a liking to fellow shipmate Scruffy in the short time that he's been there, maybe it's the similar thought patterns.
"John"'s past is shrouded in mystery, as he very seldom talks about it very much. However, a few things have been deciphered by various other crewmembers from little hints that he has dropped. He had brothers, he had a girlfriend, and he had a town. Then the Alliance blew it up when they thought some criminals were there. If this is true, his mere surviving the incident would make him a very wanted man indeed... So wanted, that he would have to keep moving from planet to planet, always staying one step ahead of whatever brainwashed saps that the Alliance would send his way just to survive. Also, he may or may not have encountered some Reavers somewhere in there.
Anyways, about a month or so ago, some crew for a rustbucket named the "Tianlong" came to the seedy little spaceport he was staying in and said that they were looking for fresh meat. "John" decided to sign up, as he (claimed to) have some experience in flying ships... After all, it was a home that moved, what wasn't great about that? And so far, he's been managing to get the Tianlong where she needs to go, lickety-split, going so far as to find shortcuts that very few would bother with, asking about the ship's strengths and weaknesses for possible maneuvers, and seeing if he can't learn how to fix the thing as well... Just in case..
