Yes, it is the Firefly goodness! ( http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v211/Airiana/Emoticons/mwahaha.gif"> ... Eh heh... Serenity thread and also in Serenity. Having seen either the television series or the movie would be quite helpful, but if you haven't and still would like to join, at least go look at some of the information that can be found all over the web about Firefly and/or Serenity.

Here is a good place to go to learn about everything Firefly in the 'Verse: FireflyFans.net Reference Database (http://www.fireflyfans.net/referencelist.asp?c=characters)

Now. Here are the positions available on the ship, if you would like one, please let me know which one (so I can edit this to show someone will be taking the position) and then submit a character sheet as per the guidelines that follow. I would like the sheets to be in the formatting that I have specified. Once we have enough crew to get this going, I will make the introductory post (as I may need to know several different crew names, etc. in order to make it!). Also... the passengers are just if we actually get enough interest to fill those slots. They're optional.

Crew Positions:
*Captain (filled; position taken by Airiana)
*First Mate (filled; position taken by Arandur)
*Pilot (filled; position taken by Flandrake)
*Mechanic (filled; position taken SoaringEagle)
*Medic (filled; position taken by Goddess_Dawn)
*Weapons' Specialist (filled; position taken by Aeramae)
*Miscellaneous Passenger #1 (filled; position taken by Veingloria)

Since we do have people here who use the metric system as well as us brats here in the states who desperately cling to the imperial system, I would appreciate it if all heights and weights were expressed in both. Here's a quick calculator to use: Weight and Height Converter ( http://www.icb2001.com/Weight_And_Height_Converter.asp).

In the next post, I will be providing my character sheet. Please feel free to ask questions or reserve a character!

Name: Instantia Cornu
Alias: Tia
Position on Ship: Captain

Age: 33
Gender: Female
Race: Caucasian
Physical Description: Instantia has dark red hair and icy blue eyes. She stands at an average height of 5'5" (165 cm), and weighs around 125 lbs. (56.7 kg). She always wears her gun strapped to her hip and sports black combat boots. Her hair is kept tied back at the base of her neck, but wisps of it often escape around her face and ears. As far as clothing, she generally wears breeches in dark colors, usually of the variety that shows of her curves. Her shirts are generally of the same material and also dark in color, though she sometimes will wear a leather vest instead. The only jewelry she wears (if it could be called jewelry!), is a cord of dark brown leather tied around her right wrist running a third of the way up her forearm.

Personality: Tia is a no-nonsense sort of gal who requires the utmost loyalty from her crew, which she returns in kind. She is one who keeps her word, and has a code of honor that she never tarries from. She is honest, but also able to lie to your face and not even flinch when the situation calls for it. She also has a very sardonic and at times sadistic sense of humor.
Biography: Tia grew up on a far-flung colony of the border planets called Dyton. Though she grew up there, she has since lost most of her British-sounding accent. When she was fifteen, she boarded a spaceship called Isis, working odd-jobs for the crew until she worked her way up to being first mate. When the captain died in a gunfight when Tia was twenty-one, she took command of the ship and has been its leader ever since. She has a vehement distaste for the Alliance and tries to stay out of their control whenever possible.

Weapon(s)/Power(s): Tia prefers firearms of nearly any sort, but her favorite is the Ruger Mk. II .22 auto pistol (for reference, this is the same gun used by Inara in the episode "Trash" while Yolanda/Saffron/Bridgette is digging through the trash in the middle of the desert), which she keeps at hand at all times.
Specialty: Convincing people to her way of seeing things and using force if necessary.
Other(s): Just because I thought y'all might like the enlightenment :P... Instantia means "perseverance" in Latin, and cornu means "strength" or "courage".

Damn I'm torn between wither the loyal First Mate or a wise-cracking ship's mechanic... will think about it a little and post something soon!

Arandur

Arandur
10/10/2005 10:09 PM

Name: Gaebriel Cole
Alias: Cole
Position on Ship: First Mate

Age: Thirty-Two
Gender: Male
Race: Caucasian
Physical Description: Tall and a little imposing, Cole stands at just over six feet in height and weighs around 170 lbs. His black hair is in need of a cut and his eyes are a dark grey in colour which seem to be looking into someone's soul when he stares. He is never seen without his twin revolvers which he wears strapped to either thigh. For clothing, Cole normally wears black boots, breeches and a shirt over which he wears a longcoat reminiscent of his days with the Independent Armed Forces. All of Cole's clothing is normally black in colour.

Personality: Cole is a professional soldier. He has his own code of honor and a real desire to keep fighting the War against the Alliance, or in the very least bloody its nose by smuggling and thieving. He has a grim sense of humour that doesn't often see the light of day but it is there lurking beneath his solemn exterior. Despite what he believes he is generally a good man who has seen some very bad things during the war. He doesn't always agree with Instantia but will keep is misgivings until it can be privately aired.
Biography: Cole grew up aboard a merchant vessel captained by his mother called the Isis but never quite felt at home aboard the vessel. When the war broke out he volunteered for the armed forces and left the ship against his mother's wishes. Cole fought in the war against the Alliance and of course was on the losing side. He saw a great deal of combat including the battle of Du-Khang & Liberty Ridge.

After the war and the forced surrender, Cole returned to the Isis to find his mother had been killed and the vessel was in the hands of another young woman named Instantia. Despite his initial misgivings he soon became a staunch supporter of the new Captain.

Weapon(s)/Power(s): Cole generally only carries his twin (modified) .38 calibre Taurus revolvers (same as Mal) and a long bladed boot knife. If the need arises for something with a little more firepower Cole will bring out his old Independence Assault Rifle, though this is a rarity.

Specialty: Cole's specialty would be that he has a smattering of most skills. Good with firearms, a little training in field medicine and the ability to take the helm if need be.

10/10/2005 10:39 PM

Name: Maximillian Aegis York
Alias: York
Position on Ship: Pilot

Age: 36
Gender: Male
Race: Caucasian

Physical Description: York has dark brown hair and dark brown eyes, seen as difficult to read. He is 180.34cm (5' 11') and weighs 79.38Kg (175lbs). His hair is somewhat curly and goes down past his ears on the sides, just above his eyes in the front and about mid neck in the back with it fringing outward. He is well muscled (but by no means a Jayne) with slopping shoulders. York usually wears cargo pants of some kind, boots, and any number shirts, ranging from button-up long sleeved to short sleeved t-shirts. He has a wolf head tattoo taking up most his back and the roman numerals VIII on his left shoulder. And the Chinese character for flight on his right shoulder.

Personality: York is a cool grey reserved person in most situations but when the action gets going he changes, considerable. He is quick to anger in this mood but knows not to be overly stupid. He is an honest person and if he says something you know it's true or that he will do it.

Biography: York grew up on a planet closer to the alliance controlled region. His father was a transport pilot and York found himself often going with him, thus where he learned the tricks of trade.

He worked with his father until the war broke out where he joined up with the brown coats. He was at first a medical ship pilot but later transferred believing he could do more good on the front lines.

York was placed as a pilot for a variety of ships and missions that ranged from bombing runs to troop drop offs. On his final flight mission of the war he was shot down behind enemy lines and fought alongside the men of the 8th Infantry Division until the end of the war.

After the war York wandered around the rim taking on any jobs he could until he could purchase his own ship. This life was cut short when he joined up with the crew of the Isis. Originally he was just hitching a ride to another planet but during his stay on the ship they were attacked and their pilot was wounded. He took the helm and damn near saved the day. The old pilot left for medical treatment and chose not to return. With the Isis lacking a skilled pilot York was asked if he wanted the job. York accepted and joined up as pilot of the ship.

Weapon(s)/Power(s): York normally doesn't carry weapons on him at all times but is no stranger to what guns and other items of hurt the Isis "armory" has to offer.

Specialty: Damn good pilot with some field combat experience.

By the way Airiana, the link you posted to the info site doesn't work.

Race: Human, duh


"Lio Coh Jwei Ji Neong Hur Ho Deh Yung Duh Buhn Jah J'wohn."

You two can't be serious right? The Human Species is divided into races itself. Such as Caucasians (Whites), Asians, Hispanics, Negro, Amer-Indian etc. THAT is what is meant by Race little heathens.

Alright... I'm afraid that until further notice, unless you can come up with better (and complete) character sheets, I'm going to have to decline Balthazar_Estat and Sakura_Shadowstealer's characters.

First off, race as in, Caucasian, Asian, Hispanic, or of African decent... obviously it does not mean as in human, elf, etcetera, as humans are the only people in the Firefly 'Verse!

Secondly, both of your character sheets are far too short, and Balthazar_Estat, yours is incomplete. Instead of submitting a character sheet in that manner, it would be nice if, in the future, you either made mention somewhere in the post that it was incomplete and when I could expect it to be completed by, or as you could have just done with this particular thread, just reserved the character. And also, you are playing a Jayne-like character, not Jayne Cobb himself, so it is very unlikely that you have Vera. If you somehow got it from him, you need to explain that!

And Sakura_Shadowslayer... it might be helpful to read the other character sheets and create a way for you to be on the ship either through one of them, or the events that they have described, but if you would rather use what you have, you will have to explain who this brother of your character's is and how he knew about the Isis, as being smugglers, the crew tends to stay below the radar.

Also, please remember the stipulation of using the metric as well as the imperial system; not everyone involved is from the United States.

If the two of you can flesh out your character sheets, there is a greater chance of me accepting them.

Oh and Flan, I think I fixed the problem with the database... seems I had a space in the code where there wasn't supposed to be one. Hopefully it should work now!

ok what do you think so far??? if it needs to change a bit just let me know

Name: Catalina Lis'sani

Alias: Cat

Position on Ship: Medic

Age: Twenty-Six

Gender: Female

Race: Caucasian

Physical Description: Cat is an appropriate nickname for this girl with her lithe figure and feline grace she moves silently.. Her waist-long dark auburn hair is a striking contrast to her smooth porcelain skin and deep emerald eyes that hold more warmth and wisdom than her young years should possess. But she isn't all mature, there is still that strong child-like side that tries to take over. Her clothing, almost always grey or a deep green to highlight her eyes, changes often as quickly as her moods, expressing herself in many ways.

Personality: Cat is proud and stubborn and always observing the situation, but has been known for quick wit and the occasional caustic tongue when she deals with those that don't take her 'medical orders' with utmost seriousness. Despite having a heart for healing and the patience of a saint she tends to be head-strong especially when she feels she is 'doing the right thing' in a situation. Once her mind is set, rarely can it be changed.

Biography: Just graduating from Med school, Cat feels she has something to prove. She struggled to put herself through the academy and yet she was able to finish with honors. Growing up the youngest child in a family of 5 children, there was nothing left for her, living with her ailing grandfather was almost like living alone. Caring for him up until he died helped Cat to realize that she was destined for medicine. Shortly after receiving her degree she accepted the position onboard the Isis, not aware that she would be working with a crew of theives, brigands and fugitives so needless to say she is being hit with many challenges that test her patience daily.

Weapon(s)/Power(s): Armed with only her wits, Cat is not one for fighting, she would rather leave that up to the others.

Specialty: Can make one hell of a martini

Ah I see :P Well... as a Medic, the main thing you'll need is to be able to fish out bullets, tend to knife wounds, do good stitching and blood transfusions, and imunizing the crew against diseases we may be coming across on our missions. Aside from them, you'll just have to take care of the common cold every once and a while. But your basic job'll be tending to battle wounds :P If you happen to get on messenger tonight, I'll probably be able to tell ya a bit more in detail.

10/12/2005 3:17 PM

Hope this character is good enough to be the mechanic.

Name: Jack Jenkins
Alias: None
Position on Ship: Mechanic

Age: 24
Gender: Male
Race: Caucasian
Physical Description: Jack has short blonde hair and sky blue eyes. He weighs about 143 lbs. (64.86 kgs) and stands at about 5'4" tall (162.56 cm). He usually carries a wrench or some other sort of tool to fix things. For clothing, he usually wears lengthy, navy blue shirt with navy blue cargo pants that have extra pockets to hold extra tools. Also has a knife in his boot, on the back of his cargo pants, and also has spring-loaded wrist knives that he uses as projectile weapons.

Personality: Jack is a laid back guy who enjoys having a good time. Likes to joke around with the other crew members because they know the only time he is serious is when he is talking about the Isis. Jack loves to talk about the ship and will talk your ear off if you let him. Doesn't like to fight much but, say one bad thing about the ship and you'll be looking at a wrench in the face.

Biography: Jack came from a planet that was close (to close for Jack) to Alliance controlled regions. His father was a great mechanic, and also knew martial arts, who worked on all the ships that came for repairs in the city that Jack lived in. Jack spent most of his life hanging out at the shop to learn martial arts from his father. The reason was was because he was being picked on when he was young so his father decided to teach him martial arts to protect himself from bullies. While at the shop he also learned about ships and how to fix them. He took a particular interest in FireFly ships and learned everything about them that he could.

When he was old enough he asked his father if he could join a crew and travel. His father told him no and that his father needed his help with business. Jack negotiated with his father that if a FireFly class ship landed in the city, Jack would join that crew. His father accepted thinking that a FireFly would never land here because he had only seen one in his entire life. When Isis landed at their mechanic shop in need of some major repairs, his father laughed with disbelief and Jack laughed with excitement. Jack then joined the crew of Isis and left his father for good.

Weapon(s)/Power(s): Jack doesn't really like guns so he doesn't use them. He does use his wrench and what ever invention that he has created though. By playing around with his wrench as a weapon he has learned how to use a knife deftly and precisely.

Specialty: A great mechanic with very good martial arts abilities as well as being able to use knives. Plus he likes to invent things that could be totally helpful, or totally useless.

Airiana
10/13/2005 11:39 AM

. . . Alright, I really feel like Damien right now, so forgive the rudeness that follows, but I have to get this out.

Sakura, you have got to be kidding me! Through imail you assured me that you ran this through a grammar check, but there are enough spelling and grammar errors in this that it doesn't seem quite possible, unless you ignored every error it brought up to you.

Your character doesn't even have a last name, and come on . . . "Death ace" is her nickname? Give me a break. You still have "Human, duh" for her race, and though I know this is supposed to be for the weapons' specialist position, you've left off that required field of the character sheet as well.

Also, I'm confused . . . your character seems to be a vengeful one, yet . . . "looking for romance and a good time"?! And also, is this sister that Adelai Niska has& it's not the supposed to be the same sister as with the Alliance, right? You need to explain that this is a different person, maybe think about giving them names. And also, since you've told me that you have watched the whole series of Firefly, you should know that anyone captured by Niska doesn't live long, so unless this just happened, she's dead already.

Also, considering she tots guns around 24/7, it is highly unlikely that, body-wise, she is as small as you've made her. From your description, she is just too thin for that.

I have tried my hardest to be nice and help you out, but it just doesn't seem to be working. Yes your character sheet shows some improvement, but much of what I have said to you has, apparently, been ignored.

I guess I am looking for a more . . . hard ass, gun toting, shoot you down without a second thought, type of character for this position. And I would also prefer it to be a male character, as we are starting to tip the edge with females here. I would rather have more males on my boat . . . less drama to deal with that way. I just don't feel that the character you've written up is right for the position, I'm sorry.

Very much debating on making a character for that position myself so we can get this thread underway.

So quit bitching cause im finishing this today. I put random things so it would hold my seat and Redawn later. "Human duh" Is another thing for "Gimmi a min so I can think on weather im white or what ever. Weapons specialist was going to be added.

I was under the impression that you were finished already, thus the comments I made. If you aren't finished with a sheet, by all that's holy, say so. If you don't tell me, then I don't know. I'm not psychic. And instead of leaving something as idiotic as "Human, duh" in the race category, why not just leave it blank? Chances are, that would have signaled me to the fact that you were not finished faster than you just leaving what you already had there.


I probobly sent you the old un check grammer on the E-mail, Try reading the post sometimes.

The one you have posted here is just as bad at the one you imailed to me; same errors ;)


It's possible to Want to love and was revenge at the same time.

This is true. However, "looking for a good time" ... I'm sorry, but this rather sounds more like a personals ad than a character sheet with that last bit. What I'm saying is yes, she may want a little romance eventually, but with everything else aside from that last part, you have her portrayed as a vengeful character, and throwing that on at the end just doesn't seem to fit very well.

And by the way, you might want to watch your attitude just a little. I've been trying to help you out. That's what my job is *points to Sage badge under her name* but you don't seem to be listening all that well. And it is generally considered common courtesy to treat your threadmaster, staff or not, with a little more respect than you're showing right now.

Name: Amanda Mae Tolliver
Alias: Mandy Mae
Position on Ship: Passenger (Could be evolved into WS position, but it seems like there are already several people working on that one...)

Age: 32
Gender: Female
Race: Caucasion
Physical Description: Height: 5'10" (177 cms) Weight: 165 lbs. (75 kgs) Maggie Mae is a strong woman and it shows. She's not masculine - more androgynous - but she's lean and compact in a way that suggests hard work and no nonesence. She has the hard features of old Earth Appalachia, the lines on her face coming early and setting hard around her mouth and eyes. She wears her salt-and-pepper, waist-length hair in a thick braid that falls down her back or is coiled under a cap when she's working. There is always dirt under her fingernails and a smudge of something across her cheek or forehead, it seems, and her clothes are haphazardly patched. Only her eyes, deep and green, could be called "beautiful"... and few take the time to look past the plainess to notice them.

Personality: Born on a remote mining colony, Mandy Mae is as hillbilly as if she had just crawled out of an old Earth hollow. She speaks in country metaphor and the patois of the mountains; so much so, in fact, it sometimes seems she is intentionally obscure. Disdainful of anything "fancy" - by which she means anything not likely to be found in the general store of the most remote and impoverished colony - she dresses and equips herself in the functional, never the frilly or ornate. Her extensive arsenal is made up of well-used and well-worn guns of every size, many clearly kluged together from scavenged parts. These she cleans and maintains herself... and is likely as not to refuse anyone who asks for a closer look-see. She likes her privacy. (In the movie, there is a flashback sequence where River says that folks don't like the Alliance because they "meddle" with people... and that is exactly why Mandy Mae steers clear of them. She doesn't have any complicated political grudges or war stories, she just can't stand the idea of being forced to be that civilized.) There are those who would call her a loner, but she's friendly enough to get by and loyal for as long as the job holds.

Biography: Mandy Mae may be more "loot" than passenger. A security specialist for a jack-leg mining interest, she was guarding a facility that housed some funds and records the crew of the Isis had been sent to, uhm, "acquire" for a financier whose loan has never been repaid. Six weeks without a paycheck herself, she decided she'd rather let them take what they came for than fight them to protect it - provided they were willing to give her transport off the rock. In exchange for the ride, she offered her extensive knowledge of security systems - and how to disarm them - for as long as she travelled with the Isis.

The middle daughter in a family of seven girls, Mandy Mae grew up hauling buckets of ore along side her parents, sisters, cousins and cousin's cousins on a small chunk of rock too poor and too mean to rightly be called a colony. She didn't get much formal education, but was well-schooled in everything it took to keep the pirates and claim-jumpers away from her family's mine. By the age of ten she could outshoot the men, even when they were sober. At eighteen, she joined up with an Alliance outfit as a munitions specialist. It was a bad fit, and it wasn't long before she went AWOL and headed back to the outer planets, but she had stuck around long enough to round out her natural talents with some formal training.

It wasn't hard for her to find work as a security specialist. Just the fact that she could read a schematic put her head and shoulders above most of the competition. Not caring much for company, she stuck mostly to small operations where she handled everything herself and where no one was all that worried about permits and other official nonesence. She taught herself a fair bit about how the computer systems worked - more, at least, then the folks that owned them knew. Maybe most importantly, she kept her mouth shut and her ears pricked... Mandy Mae knows more about the gossip floating around the outer planets than most anyone, including who sells what on the black market and to whom they're selling it.

She doesn't have a personal life worth mentioning... she isn't opposed to men, or sex, but at the same time she isn't exactly inclined towards all the hullabaloo that goes along with them. There have been those that kept her warm a winter or two, but never much longer than that, and although she remembers them fondly she doesn't bother to think of them very often.

She is passionate about two things outside of her work. Moonshine and guitars. The former she makes in a small still that she sets up wherever she calls home, the latter she plays late into the night, singing the folk songs she's collected from the various colonies where she has worked. She loves the songs folks sing to tell their own stories, from the ones hundredds of years old to those just now being written, and takes the time whenever she can to stop and learn the music of each place she sets down.

Weapon(s)/Power(s): She has a well-stocked arsenal that ranges from side-arms to rocket launchers... all more or less heavily modified and most as ugly as they are deadly. She prides herself on knowing what to carry for each situation, but when she's not really expecting more than the usual trouble, she carries a pair of heavily modified 9mm automatic glocks passed down from her Daddy and a 9 inch K-Bar strapped to her leg. (Although, she thinks of the knife as a tool, not a weapon. In her own words "If I need someone dead, I need 'em dead over to there where they cain't reach me, not over to here where they're looking me straight on in the face.")

Specialty: Security systems.

Other(s): Folk musician and distiller of extremely potent spirits that she calls "branch water".

While you have shown a lot of improvement on your character, Sakura, I'm afraid I will still be declining it. Imail me and perhaps we can continue working on your skills that way. I think that with the other players, this crew is about filled up anyways.

Veingloria, your character sounds wonderful. If she has that large of an arsenal of weapons, there's really no need to go into specifics, though you may want to tell us what her favorite is. I like the character... I'm from West Virgina and she sort of reminds me of some people I know back home :P

*Pokes Aeramae and Avenging_Angel* Hey you two... where'd you run off to?

Aeramae
10/18/2005 8:47 AM

I haven't run off anywhere! I've got my person right here! Just took a little longer due to my boys.

Name: Delsin Wyome
Alias: Coyote
Position on Ship: Weapons Specialist

Age: 35
Gender: Male
Race: Half Native American, half white

Physical Description: When people look at him, they have trouble telling that he's half-white. He has long black hair, worn in a braid, looks as if he's got a very dark tan, his eyes have a slight almond shape to them, has been said to be fairly handsome. He weighs 212 lbs (96.16kg) and stands at about 6'5" (195.58 cm). Almost all of his weight is pure muscle. The only hint of his other side is the color of his eyes, which are blue-green. Delsin usually wears a white t-shirt, jeans, and a leather vest she got from his father when he turned 19. The vest is old, and looks like it's been altered numerous times to allow for growth. He also wears simple, no-nonsense black work boots, and around his neck hangs, on a braided leather cord, an eagle feather his father gave to him when he became a man. When on missions, his crossbow is usually found hanging across his back or chest towards the left, and he usually has at least on gun kept in a hip holster on his right.

Personality: Usually quiet and reserved, doesn't talk much with other people outside of the crew. Becomes very hostile when insulted, or when he feels he has been insulted. Despite his quiet demeanor, he does know how to joke around with the crew.

Biography: Delsin grew up not knowing his mother, who died while giving birth to him. His father never talked much about his deceased wife, except to tell Delsin from time to time that he had his mothers eyes. Delsin learned some of his ancestors history from his father, before he was killed by the Alliance. When asked why they killed the man, the officers who killed him claimed that it was because he was caught stealing, and started to fight back when they went to apprehend him.

The death of his father prompted Delsin to join a small rebel group in Dyton, where he was born. Through this group, he learned all he could about weapons and put his knowledge to use by stealing weapons from the Alliance whenever he could. The Alliance eventually caught up to the group, and even though he had been the one to take the weapons from them, another member took the fall for him, and he remained free. Delsin holds no love for the Alliance, and whenever an opportunity arises to mess with them, he jumps at the chance.

Weapon(s)/Power(s): Has practically every weapon known to man, and if he doesn't, he knows where to get it. With that knowledge comes knowing how to use those weapons. However, his favorite weapon, the one that is with him at almost all times, is an Energy Powered Crossbow, the T4 model.
Specialty: Despite his size, Delsin is very apt at getting in and out of places unobserved. Hence the nickname.
Other(s): Delsin means "he is so" and Wyome means "plain". Delsin prefers to go by his alias, Coyote.


(Edited to change sex of character and name.)

Cough...hack...wheeze....damnation...

Sorry, I haven't forgotten about it, honest.

Name: Eduard Ian Jamiss ("Call me Eduard."
Alias: Ed, bleach (makes sense later)
Position on Ship: Passenger

Age: 14, almost 15
Gender: Male
Race: Caucasian
Physical Description:
Eduard is approximately 5'7, with hair that's just long enough for him to pull back into a very short ponytail. Hair is bleached (turning it an odd orange-blonde color) and he insists on keeping it that way, despite people informing him just how ridiculous it looks.
Grey eyes, has a scar on his cheek from when his hometown wound up in the middle of a crossfire during the war (he was hit by a flying piece of rock).

Personality:
Eduard tends to be somewhat quiet around people he's just met, but quickly warms up. He gets along with most people, though he's sarcastic and can be rather rude. Loves nothing better then to take down people with large egoes and has nothing resembling respect for authority. Small children and pets tend to get on his nerves very easily.

Biography:
Ed grew up in a small, rural town in a fairly large family. When he was three, the war broke out and his father and elder brothers were drafted, leaving his mother to fend for him and his younger siblings. The straing slowly played havoc with her, and when new that their father had died on the front came back, she killed herself and her children wound up on the streets.

He grew up as nothing more then a pick-pocket until he was ten, when he was caught and put in prison, and experience which left him with a strong desire to get off the backwater planet and find a more legitimate line of work. He's been saving up his money ever since, until he finally earned enough to buy a place on Isis.

Weapon(s)/Power(s): Avoids confrontation, but he uses knives mostly, which he can throw, but his aim is rather bad. Can use a gun but dislikes them intensely. Able to pick pockets quite well, not as good at other kinds of theft. Excellent cook.
Specialty: Theft, Cooking

Airiana

I figured that she would have been brought aboard the last stop the Isis made on a planet, but if you'd like, as soon as this is over on the ship and we go to sell the goods, Instantia can bribe you aboard then. It's up to you, hun.

And BTW... where's that Aussie of yours hiding??

It's up to speculation at the moment as to how the transport ship got in its current state.

And as far as the Chinese... if you're using the list I gave in the Serenity thread, it's not really necessary, 'cause the translation is there, but... otherwise, I would appreciate it. I probably will just 'cause *shrugs*.

hmmmm i don't know which one would be better - i like both ideas.... but if the "bribe" took place that could establish her character and Instantia's as well

I see. Well glad to know he's okay. Was afraid he'd hurt himself again (other than the smashed-up hand he told me he had last week). Hope he has the energy come Sunday/Saturday to get on... I think he has a few threads that are waiting on him.

Okay... confused here... you want the bribe/trickery to have happened already, or do you want this to happen when we touchdown planetside next?

And I haven't talked to Aussie Boy since the end of last week, and he had a smashed up hand then... I dunno... maybe he re-injured it or something. He had an icepack on it or something. Can't remember. Anywho, hope he heals up!
