Velocity Lambert

Valerie (Velocity) Elizabeth Grey-Lambert
Date of Birth:  10.04.2486 (33)
Gender:  Female

Primary Occupation:  Pilot
Secondary Occupation:  Violinist
Requested Ship:  Ronin
Equipment:  A violin. Not just any violin but a very nice old violin; a wedding present from Bonnie.
Two sets of soft leather "armour", one black, one brown.
Engagement & Wedding rings (worn).
Photo of Bonnie and herself.
Two old-fashioned, rather battered, notebooks and two pens.
Appearance:  Height:6' 9" (206 cm)
Weight:128 lbs (58 kg)
Velocity is very tall, particularly for a woman. She is impossibly thin which lends an air of physical fragility to her. She is well below the BMI considered to be underweight but she is generally healthy and has only once ever been known to take a sick day. It was the day she fell head over heals for a certain Bonnie Grey.

Her hair is pure white and her eyes a bright, piercing blue. When she turns her gaze on someone, she gives the air of a bird considering whether a worm is worth eating, her head cocked to one side.

Velocity is always dressed in tight, body-hugging black or brown leathers that bear more than a passing resemblance to soft leather armour. They accentuate her thinness as well as making it obvious that she is Hur Bao Dun.
Face Claim:  Gigi Edgley

Initial_Personality:  Velocity's initial personality will depend very much on the context in which she is met.

In a social context she will be very quiet and reserved, not participating in any conversation unless specifically invoked. Depending on the topic, her answers will be short, polite but laconic or eloquent, verbose and animated. The latter occurs if anything to do with flying or space navigation is brought into the conversation. If not, the more observant will note that there is a faraway look in her eyes and she will seem distracted. It will because she is, thinking almost exclusively of Bonnie. At such times it will be hard to get her attention.

If the context is that of flying, being actually flying, discussing flying, planning flying, debriefing flying Velocity will be forward, articulate and erudite. It is like a switch has been pressed; the shy hesitant wallflower becomes a outgoing and confidant woman.
Underlying_Personality:  Velocity is, in a nutshell, crazy.

She was always very different

Cover story:
Marooned on supply depot on isolated asteroid after supply ship was damaged by
booby trap. The two other crew members were killed. There were enough supplies
for Velocity indefinitely but no means of communication or escape.
Finally rescued a couple of weeks ago. Has only just learned about Shadow and
the loss of the war.

Page 5 & 6
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Description of Condition:
After every period of sleep, memories between the death of Bonnie and present
are short-circuited out. They still exist but they are not accessible in the
normal way.
You need to take notes before you go to sleep of the important points of the
day. They don't need to be detailed, just enough to trigger recall.

Crew List

Captain:                     James Szeliga
First Officer and Mechanic:  Ally Smith       
Pilot:                       Laurie Lux        Immature, threatened by me. I
                                               need to work hard to get along
                                               with her
Pilot:                       Velocity Lambert   
Ship's Doctor:               (Dr.) Robyn Li    Friendly
Cook/General Hand:           Lana Valentine    Friendly, good food
General Hand:                Henry Slater
Ship's Parrot (Laurie's):    Scott             Not large enough to make a meal
                                               for me let alone the whole crew


Vixen Day 1
-----------
Woke up disorientated and crying for Bonnie. A young woman came in, one I
recognised as Robin, a nice Doctor though the context escaped me. She led me to
a crew assignment meeting in the galley where I had some lovely chicken soup.
Assumption by Captain that I would be joining crew though he didn't know what I
do.

Stole first flight from Laurie. Argument over untethered parrot on bridge.
Alienated everyone by skiting that I could have been a Doctor or Nuclear
Physicist as a way of scoring points off Laurie. STUPID! STUPID! STUPID.
But at least I still have the magic!

Departed .....

Ship had a glitch. Ally could not track it down. Called Ally Bonnie. I think she
fears me. Bonnie came to me again. Same Bonnie, trying to look out for me.

Vixen Day 2
-----------
On watch overnight. No sign of Laurie. On approach to Persephone.

Lana brought breakfast to me. She is very kind.
Landed on Persephone at Eavesdown docks.
Ship's registration: 68430294-Vixen.

Laurie left Vixen for a berth on another ship. Left Scotty behind.

Went grocery shopping with Lana. Knocked some cans over trying to drive trolley. Cut my arm. Panicked and ran into ship. Helped Lana stow groceries.


Final pages:

Lament

To war we're called
Two souls diverse
Friends we lose but
Never need to
Say
The one I love is dead

In Common love
United we
No future see
In which I would
Find
The one I love is dead

Between us lie
Both time and space
Time due long past
But still I don't
Fear
The one I love is dead

A Judas in
A trusted post
With self-serving
Deals he seals her
Fate
The one I love is dead

A missile hit
A raging fire
My lover screams
Over comm I
Hear
The one I love is dead

The missile leaves
Her battered ship
A shattered wreck
None live thus I
See
The one I love is dead

From broken heart
To shattered dreams
All reason dies
In dark despair
Know
The one I love is dead

From top of class
To jacket straight
By missile sent
Time and spare to
Lament
The one I love is dead

What's reason worth
And Sanity
What value they
While in this cold
Hell
The one I love is dead

Months in a house
Of bugs I flee
A ship to join
In flight can I
Escape
The one I love is dead

The joy of flight
For oh so brief
A span of time
Indeed I can
Forget
The one I love is dead

Back down to earth
In life mundane
My mind has time
And leeway to
Recall
The one I love is dead

No respite in
The hours of dark
Where nightmares haunt
And in sleep I
Dream
The one I love is dead

Bruised in body
Bruised in spirit
Unchecked I bleed
In grief in blood
Drowned
The one I love is dead

To lesson teach
A planet kill
All folk dead and
'Neath enemy
Shadow
The one I love is dead

To seek my death
I courage lack
Denied its peace
Thus condemned to
Suffer
The one I love is dead

Of future twin
Dark void of space
No plans, no goals,
No dreams, no hope
For
The one I love is dead

Worthless, “I should”,
Pointless , “I could”
What value might
And could have been
Now
The one I love is dead

I love her still
And in my heart
Remains her ghost
Bitter-sweet to
Remind
The one I love is dead

No hope I see
Despair complete
Now that I have
Lost my true love
Bonnie
The one I love is dead

Skills and Strengths:  Exceptional Pilot
Exceptional Navigator
Extremely intelligent
Very powerful intuition
Very good amateur classical violinist
Weaknesses:  Socially inept
Leaky brainpan
Seriously allergic to furry animals like rabbits and cats (and fur products); not allergic to hairy animals like dogs (but hates them). Velocity doesn't know she is allergic as somehow she hasn't come into contact since the allergy developed (she wasn't born with it). Will need to carry epipens when it is discovered.
Bruises extremely easily
Suffers from haemophilia; she has managed to keep this more or less a secret; always carries analgesics.
Skin is fragile and is easily broken.
