Character Application / Abigale Janet Layton[WIP]
May 19, 2020, 04:53:32 pm
Abigale Janet Layton
Lomari


Age:  30

Gender:  Female

Primary Occupation:  Alliance Certified Doctor

Secondary Occupation (optional):  Freelance Veterinarian (Not Certified)

Appearance:  TYPE HERE

Faceclaim:  Aubrey Plaza

Initial Personality:  Were there ever to be the perfect human personification of a cat, it would be Abigale. Aloof, cold, cynical, dark, and more than a little terrifying in her ideals and thoughts. She is anti-social to a fault, unless it benefits her in which case she has been known to begrudgingly allow some forms of social interaction. Abigail is also wildly mischievous, dangerously troublesome, and amazingly accident prone. Although typically the accidents happen to those in her sphere of influence rather than to her directly. She does not seem to be easily phased by violence or the bloody outcomes of violence.

Underlying Personality:  Mildly neurotic and extremely particular, Abigale has a perfectionist streak that is vastly harmful to her own self esteem. Despite being hyped up by her family regularly and excelling in everything she does professionally and personally, she suffers from intense impostor syndrome and anxiety. Being an older sister, she does have the capacity to be caring and kind, and although she doesn't typically express it, she is a strong guardian of the underdog. She expresses her affection for those she cares about via little secret gifts, hidden words of encouragement, and occasionally by sabotaging any of her loved ones enemies or bullies.

Iscariot Station Location: Passing the Himinbjorg System out in "The Rim."
Station Time: 1100

Iscariot had made another full circle as it moved on its deep orbit through Border Space. Its circular  build allowed for a full rotation that simulated the typical 24-Hour Day Cycle that most planet-side individuals were used to, and thus kept the station's residents and visitors on somewhat of a steady and predictable routine. Night ended, the neon signs flickering off and the artificial lighting lining the walkways and thoroughfares brightening to mimic daylight. Businesses began to open, the loud karaoke music died down to a dull throb in the shopping sectors, and the cacophonous buzzing of commerce filled the metal hunk of junk sailing through the Black.

In the past few weeks, there had been an increasing amount of chatter in the back channels about ducks and geese and other foul birds. There had also been a surge in the mentioning of snakes and eggs, but to the layman, this was all nonsense fueled by the insanity of being out in space too long, or inspired by the low-grade high-potency drugs peddled in the dark alleys of the less than lawful space station. Word on the street was that Lil' Sebastian was up to something, but what that was was anybody's guess and no one planned on asking him for specifics.

Down at the docks, ships came and went carrying cargo, tourists, and new faces who found themselves drawn to the morally ambiguous nature of the station lost out in the stars. Here, they could be whoever they wanted and no one would care enough to look too closely at a forged ID or a halfheartedly constructed backstory. Jobs were plentiful if one knew where to look, friends were plenty if one had the right temperament, and adventures were boundless if one lacked a sense of self preservation.

In another area of the Station, a certain woman's cortex pad bliped with a response to her urgent message.
"Prime Cuts," was all it said and was distinctly lacking in any sender information. It looked like most of it had been scrubbed clean very purposefully.

FamilyName: Haemish
Homeland: Dogwood, Athens - Georgia System

Clan history: The Haemish family has always lived a very simple and wholesome life on Athens. They made enough money to be reasonably comfortable and never knew hunger or hardship. Their parents (Bartholomew Haemish and Marianne Larson) were well respected in the community as healers and in her mother's case, as a 'witch'. Not to say she had any special powers, but when a woman comes to heal your son's fever with chants, waved smoking sage and an herbal remedy she prepared herself, people tended to assume she was a witch. Her older brother found a joy for working with his hands and took on apprenticeships with local carpenters and masons while her younger sister assisted the town's clothing makers and fabric manufacturers while Tabitha herself followed in her parent's healing footsteps.They have always lived on Athens, and have been a staple of the community for as long as there were people living on that rock, or so they assume.

The Haemish Siblings


Jeremy Haemish
Jude Law

OPEN
The oldest of the Haemish children, Jeremy avoided having to enlist in either side of the war simply by being the only male son on a small homestead. His family needed him to be planetside and helping out at home. Their parents kept them fed and comfortable with their professions as the local medical workers, and Jeremy helped around the house with their meager and humble crops and in keeping the house maintained. Through this, he found a love for working with his hands and took on apprenticeships with local carpenters and masons and found joy in his new career. He was always soft spoken and smile easily, but was a staunch protector of his younger sisters. There were several occasions in which he had to chase the town boys away with a hammer, and had earned a reputation among the young men in town as being formidable and daunting.

Tabitha Haemish
Mia Wasikowska

Taken - Lomari
Tabitha is a whimsical sort of magical creature who seems to interact with the human world in short bursts. Always ready to laugh, have fun, and lend a hand, she is a whirlwind of positive energy and joy. Personal space is a bubble whose existence she is unaware of and has been known to hold hands with strangers. She is always ready and willing to give more of herself than there is and to put everything she has into her endeavors.

Tabitha was eventually hired on by the Captain of The Darling during a particularly nasty illness that had been wreaking havoc aboard his ship, with unknown cause. She wasn't a fancy Core doctor, but she was educated and well-liked by her peers and would do just fine. Tabby did her best, but in the end she was only able to successfully cure the younger crew members of his ship, ultimately failing at saving his elderly parents. All she could do was make their passing comfortable and served as what essentially became a live-in caretaker for the couple. Upon their passing, Tabitha meant to leave the ship, feeling she'd failed it and its crew, but was instead hired on by its new owner and current Captain.

Emily Haemish
Elle Fanning

Open
The youngest of the bunch, younger than her sister Tabitha by seven years, she was always the one to get away with murder. Popular with the boys and proud of it, she fluttered from boyfriend to boyfriend but never made any deep connection with any of them, finding they were all thinking too small for her liking. Like her siblings, she is kind and compassionate and more than a little carefree, but she was always more ambitious than the rest. She applied herself to her interests, yearned for exploration of the stars, and found inspiration in nature. Emily began her apprenticeships in textile business and haberdasheries in the local community, but her sketch books and homemade fashion masterpieces show a need to do more and to be more. She yearns to head to the Core.

Darling Asides / S1:Ep4 (YNTSLY) - No Tea No Shade
February 25, 2020, 02:16:53 pm
Recap from S1:Ep4 - You're NoBody 'Till SomeBody Loves You

"Raise a glass, if you don't mind. To all of us and all of you and maybe one for me too! Cheers!" their Captain said, and Tabby sat, her hands coiling around her own teacup as she lifted it in turn. Once the toast was over, she took a tender sip, careful not to burn her tongue.

"Ya'll know what goes good with tea? ... Singin'. Tabby, do us the pleasure wouldja?"

"Yeah! Raise our spirits in the timeless art of song, good doctor," Rian added.

The teacup returned to the table and the doctor cleared her throat as she stood, a hand lifting to smooth back the curls with varying levels of success. She didn't ask what their next plan was, where they were headed, what exactly had happened, or whether they should worry about that suave fellow coming back to haunt them. That wasn't her way. She looked around at the table and began her singing, tips of her fingers settled against the edge of the table.

Iscariot Archived Episodes / Episode 4: Hub/Docks
February 10, 2020, 09:55:01 am
Station Time: 7PM - 1900 Hours.

With Charity, King, Gwen, and Emit departing the Medical Bay, business went on as usual. Patients came and went, their malady's ranging from near severed fingers from working in the deep portions of the station, to rashes from chemicals used during the cleaning process in the bowels of Iscariot's belly.  Most of the work done at the station centered around those whose livelihoods depended on the continued smooth running of the beast's internal machinations. Treating spacers was rare, but always an interesting experience for the Med Bay Staff.

Up in the Garden/Café at the very tippy-top of the station, residents and visitors prepared to watch small vessels and hunks of junk orbit the station in their ritual races.

Station Time: 7PM - 1900 Hours.

Max, having been in a foul mood following his visit with Devon and her ultimate 'escape' at the suggestion of the sweet Elena, had been roused from his anger by a wave from an old associate. An Eath-That-Was artifact had resurfaced on the black market and was up for grabs but wouldn't be there long. With a gathering of his immediate belongings, a brisk avoidance of the woman, Alice to be exact, in his store save for asking her to leave so he could lock up, and a soft goodbye to Elena, Maxell left the station in pursuit of treasure.

Despite his drunken excitement and exuberant hand waving, Moira managed to get through her hair appointment with Amorru with little to no accidental ear cutting or over bleaching. Of course, the brunette left the shop with hair white as snow and an attitude made all the worse by sips from his flask when he thought she wasn't looking. After the stylist sent him on his merry way, he made quick work of entering the races with an endorsement from a Mister Decimal, touting his skills as a pilot, nay, as the Best Pilot in the Gorram 'Verse. Of course, mid race, his shuttle mysteriously shot off into space in the direction of the nearest planet at the sight of a Persephone branded cargo vessel docking at the station.

Down at Jed's Dojo, Angela set an appointment to rent out the dojo at a later date and went on their way to find their lodging on the station and get settled in.

With no sun to orbit, Iscariot functioned on a typical rotation of 24 hours, although their 'night' life was just as bustling as the 'day' shift, what with ships coming in on their own time or shipments from planets functioning along the night and day of their home planet arriving and needing offloading. As it was, most of the 'day' on the station had passed in relative ease, the nightlife falling into full swing. The lighting in the passageways dimmed just slightly to make the neon of shop signs burn all the brighter, casting their colorful glow down onto the passersby.  Music from the bar and karaoke lounge filtered out into the walkway, bustling at the threshold of nearby shops. Vendors and street cars shouted out the availability of wares and takeaway food and carts and mules hiccupped around the shops with cargo and merchandise ordered by shop owners and station workers.

Jobs flickered on the station's Job Board, including listings from ships that had put said openings on the cortex. A ship whose name had been redacted indicated they needed a Mechanic and had a cortex code that was clearly a throwaway number listed as the contact. Another ship, The Darling, had listings posted for a Pilot and a Mechanic, and specified that they were a working ship full of honest, law-abiding folk.

Previously on The Darling...

"That went about as smoothly as it could have," came the voice from the other section of the train, its owner making their way through the residual fog into their car. Geraldine Price emerged from the haze; her own gun held at the ready although she seemed pretty relaxed given the situation. It might've been cockiness, to the untrained observer, but to those that knew better, it was a sheer confidence in the fact that she could put down everyone in this train without breaking a sweat and sleep well that night to boot.

"Was surprised to get your call, Barna-baby,"she told him, a smirk pulling at one corner of her lips as she cocked her hip to the side and looked down at those handcuffed with an amused grin and quirk of a brow. "But I gotta admit, I don't hate what I'm seein' here," the woman continued, nodding her chin toward her men and watching them tug Rian away from Abe and Co to set him on his feet beside Barn and Mattie, who they also pulled to her feet, although the Feds left all but Barnaby still cuffed. Just in case.

November 18, 2019, 11:05:03 am
Angela Evans
Player: Lomari



Age:  35
Gender:  Biologically Female
Primary Occupation:  Asset
Secondary Occupation (optional):  Specialist

Appearance:  Androgynous and unassuming, Angela is typically seen (if she's seen at all) sporting an asymmetrical bob and a business suit. She is tall and lithe with chiseled features that could broadcast either male or female depending on her need. Her eyes are a light grey-blue and her skin is pale and surprisingly unblemished, although upon closer inspection it might have been altered to appear that way. Her fingertips are unnaturally smooth and her teeth perfectly capped in ivory.
Faceclaim:  Tilda Swinton

Initial Personality:  A winter's blizzard. She is cold and unfeeling, frigid and dangerous. Beneath the blue of her eyes is the darkness of a winter's night and the frost of a hardened lake. She doesn't laugh, she doesn't smile, and if she should do so, it only precedes something terrifying and painful. She is self-sufficient and fiercely independent, refusing to rely on others for most things (like company, friendship, most low-level technological issues that she can manage on her own, and the success of a job).
Underlying Personality:  Confusion reigns supreme. Confusion about others, about their ties to one another, about their emotions and their experiences. Confusion about families. Confusion about friends. And an anger at her inability to understand.

Other History:  Angela Evans, daughter of Edward Evans and Evangeline Evans, was raised on Londinium amidst the hustle and bustle of the capital city. Not but a few blocks away from the Alliance Parliament building and its surrounding Alliance government complex, she was no stranger to the constant buzzing of political and corporate business. Edward and Evangeline were computer systems and communication technology specialists, dealing in the 'researching and manufacturing of up and coming technologies' meant to be sent out via the Blue Sun corporation to their subsidiaries and shell companies across the 'Verse. Like most of the lucky ones in the megacorporation's employ, Edward and Evangeline were loyal to the brand.

For several summers over her formative years, Angela was sent to corporately sponsored camps meant for 'team building and the development of interpersonal skills' among the other children of Blue Sun employees. At the end of each subsequent summer, their daughter's obsession and devotion to the conglomerate became deeper, more rigid, and vastly worrying. She adhered inflexibly to what she had come to know as their doctrine and set of beliefs, feeling even her parents weren't doing enough to show their support for the establishment that put food on their table and a roof over their heads. For years, this continued, and her parents grew increasingly alarmed. Angela had become well versed in martial arts, thanks to the 'workshops' held at the camps that she now insisted she go to. Her behavior became suspicious, distrustful, and disdainful toward her family.

At 16, Angela was granted a position within Blue Sun, although her parents were never informed of the title or pay scale and their daughter moved out to live in on-site dormitories provided by the multiplanet corporation. Two years later, her parents were under investigation pending charges of a breached NDA and suspected corporate espionage against their parent company. Of course, these charges were entirely internal, and the couple was never arrested by any Alliance official. Instead, on a moonlit night at a quarter to twelve, they were found dead in their Londinium estate. It had been clean, efficient, and after a month of dead-end leads and no information to go on, the Alliance marked it as a Cold Case and moved on, leaving their daughter with the Evans' estate and holdings, which were promptly transferred to a subsidiary belonging to Blue Sun.

Angela found her calling in working the corporate espionage cases assigned to her by her benefactors, as well as doing the dirty jobs those in charge didn't want to do themselves. At age 19 she was enlisted with the Alliance, serving in the Union of Allied Planets Army as a low tier grunt for several years, participating dutifully in the unification war from 2506 to 2509, although she never seemed to indicate her opinion on the war or on which side was in the wrong. Her work was consistent and commendable, however, she never sought any promotions and left at the end of her contract in 2509. Whether or not this was done to upgrade and fine tune her skill set, or if the entirety of her enlistment had been done under the guise of information gathering was unclear. Especially to anyone on the outside looking in. 

She made her way from station to Skyplex to planet for the next 10 years, never staying around long enough to make much of an impression on anyone and finishing her work quickly and efficiently. Assisting in setup for future shell corporations, removal of risks to company supply lines, and altogether upkeep of the great and glorious Blue Sun. 

Skills and Strengths:  Several forms of Martial Arts.
General piloting (shuttles, small crafts)
General mechanical skills (keeping said small crafts running, day to day mechanic duties)
Technological prowess
General Medical Skills (Self-care as simple as disinfecting, up to self-stitches).
Gun handling and safety.
Highly intelligent.
Weaknesses:  Genuine emotions.
Engineering above day-to-day maintenance and the occasional very specific tool operation know-how.
Piloting anything larger than a Firfly class vessel.
Medicinal skills above the skill set of basic wound maintenance.
At the utter mercy of her Masters.
No Friends or Family to speak of.
Difficulty working on a team or in a group setting.

Phoenix IC / Season 1: Ep 0 - Reborn in Fire
October 20, 2019, 03:00:30 pm
 "That sounds like the Alliance....unite all the planets under one rule so that each can be ignored or interfered with equally."

Location: Greenleaf Skyplex
Station Time: 1836


The ship's engines glimmered in the darkness of space as it roared away from Greenleaf Skyplex like a bat out of Hell, casting its warm glow out into the cold. From where the abandoned crew watched, the vessel became smaller and smaller and further out of their reach. Without much warning, as was always the way when it came to the Alliance, the ship and its Captain had been repossessed by the government and sent on official business at the far end of the 'Verse. It had all happened in such a flash, leaving the remaining crew reeling from the decision. They'd only just taken off when they'd been made to turn back to off board the ship's new inhabitants. Now, while the Alliance was overbearing and demanding, it wouldn't call itself cruel and left each member dropped off with a comfortable severance package and a glowing recommendation. Of course, the recommendations had been vague and clearly taken from a pre-made document with their names slapped onto each one, but perhaps in this case, it was the thought that counted. Now without a home but the means to find another or settle down on the Skyplex, the crew had a decision to make.

Throngs of crews and interested parties moved around the group like schools of many hued fish, boarding vessels or hauling cargo and the like out of cargo holds. A constant din of conversation and business hummed through the docks, vibrating with life and commerce. There were plenty of eating establishments nearby in which to sit and go over everything that had happened, as well as rooms to rent and classified boards to peruse. But what mattered was that they were still together, and their journey's path would be decided upon by them, not by the Alliance and not by the ship that had left them behind. They were the creators of their own destiny now.

Location: The Perimeter

"Unidentified vessel, state your designation and bring your speed down to the appropriate docking parameters."

The luxury vessel had been pushed dangerously close to its absolute limit, the engine vibrating unnaturally and the ship shaking with the effort, threatening to tear itself apart as it careened through the dark toward Iscariot. A ship of this type had been built with comfortable languid floating in mind, made to cater to the rich and the lazy. Its amenities were impressive, but impractical, and its top speed was barely above a sluggish crawl. And yet, like an old horse pushed to panicked action, the pilot forced the beast to sprint.

"Unidentified vessel, you're going too bloody fast. Slow down and state your designation or we'll be forced to take defensive measures!"

"This is the vessel 'Pompous Arsehat' requesting permission to dock! We've got injured people on board and need emergency medical assistance! I'm slowing down!"

Location: Docks

Station personnel gathered at the open berthing station, including the emergency medical team standing with a gurney between them and the docking administrator with a handful of paperwork and a frown. Behind him, a gaggle of onlookers peered curiously between one another in anticipation of the new drama unfolding on their station, several lookie-loos belonging to Iscariot's Lil Sebastian. They didn't have to wait too long before the stolen luxury shuttle limped into place, the landing clamps hissing as they closed on the ships docking couplers.  Shortly after the first ship landed, a second smaller cargo vessel touched down on the neighboring bay with much less fanfare than the first.

The station's PA system crackled to life, momentarily interrupting the music in Valhalla and speaking over the din of commerce in the shopping sectors.

"Emergency Medical Personnel please report to the Med Bay. Emergency Medical Personnel please report to the Med Bay."

Recent History: The crew of Wushu escaped the clutches of the Ainsworth estate, but just barely. The entire endeavor, no matter how well intentioned the plan, was a catastrophic mess. Wushu was surrounded where it landed, and quite land locked, with an engine beyond repair thanks to their hotshot pilot pushing it so hard on on not enough fuel away from the dangers on Newhall. With a new techspec friend in tow, some left behind, Charity unconscious and bleeding after her brief kidnapping, and King suffering from a gunshot wound, the crew found that they don't have the time or the means to get back to Wushu and escape. Instead, the group was forced to steal one of Ainsworth's shuttles and hightail it to the closest port available to them, their mission a complete failure.

In the end, the crew ended up on Iscariot Station without a home. After her recovery, Charity purchased a new ship for the crew with the help of the Station's PR Liaison, Lil Sebastian.

Revenge IC / Episode 2: Catch a Tiger By The Toe
September 08, 2019, 11:05:37 am
The ship disengaged from the station, its thrusters flashing as it was propelled away from Iscariot at a safe but slightly hurried speed. The chaos from the Hub had followed the crew down to the docks, but no further. It seemed they were satisfied with chasing away the 'cheaters' and calling the whole race a wash, something Leon would no doubt appreciate, if he acknowledged it has happened in the first place.

Despite the dangers, the crew remained intact and whole. In fact, they'd added one new face and reclaimed another to add to their roster. Now, The Revenge sailed out into The Black, Captained once more by Isa Romero. The ship seemed to move a little faster, run a little smoother, and feel a little lighter with its rightful Captain restored to its position. The Revenge was pleased.

Where would they go? What would they do? And would they ever manage to get along?
