How's this?Played by: ChazniaAppearance:Name:
27Position on ship:
Communications OfficerSkill set:
Prussia was groomed for her position on the ship by her Naval Officer parents who hoped to see her move on in their footsteps and join the Alliance forces. She attended a formal academy for cadets and graduated with honors. Since she has only been in Cass's employ for a short while, she still has a working knowledge of Alliance protocol and coding procedures. She has subtle cybernetic implants that aid her in decoding and translate most languages heard or read without having to know them fluently. Her glasses also provide her with a "heads up" display that allows her to scan public information systems (the modern equivalent of the internet?) and whatever private logs she has local access to. Because of her family, she has an intimate working knowledge of all current transmissions technology and the servicing systems linked to them.
Prussia's only combat knowledge lies in ship weaponry that she had a cursory training in back at the academy. In a pinch, she could come to the aid of the other bridge crew but she could not successfully accomplish complicated or risky maneuvers. Beyond this, she has a personal defensive device (like a taser) that she carries around in case she were to come into a dire situation. She would like to learn how to better defend herself, but has yet to find the right teacher or opportunity.Character History:
(Much of this is covered above) After graduating, she went on a tour of service on her uncle's vessel. Soon after, she found that working for her family was a bad idea and took time away. A short vacation later, she was back to her career but on a prestigious trade ship traveling to reaches she had yet been to. Several years of this mundane occupation later, and only within the last several months before our game begins, she finally had contact with Cass and The Relentless.Personality:
Prussia tends to be quiet and reserved, appearing a bit on the shier side around people she doesn't know well. Once you come into her inner circle, she is witty and opinionated, showing a preference for cerebral company or at least those that can give her an honest laugh. She takes good care of herself and takes her job seriously - always staying focused when on duty. In her free time, she is more relaxed but does not tend to socialize very often. Being new, she hasn't made many friends as of yet. For now, she spends most of her free time in whatever quarters are allowed to her, she writes through her emotions so they will not cause distractions when around others - this is particularly important in her mind because the more she spends time around her Captain, the more she seems to become enamored with him. This is unexplored land for Prussia, because she has never had such a severe attraction for anyone in her life. It can be difficult to focus around him and so she pours herself into her duties, making herself appear like a work-a-holic or perhaps even an ass-kisser, considering how apparent it is that she only acts that way when her commanding officer is around. She does everything in her power to not make these particular problems apparent because she couldn't imagine either what sort of complications would come up if he knew nor what she would do or where she would go if she had to leave the ship.How did the Captain hear about and recruit you?:
On leave, she had come to visit an old classmate who had settled down on a SA branded planet near Independent space. After a few days of relaxation and reminiscing, she left on a small transport to rejoin her assigned vessel. Before she could return, however, Prussia's transport was force-docked in a larger pirate ship of colors unknown. Here, she was kept as a prisoner for an indeterminable amount of time before the Wolf's crew somehow caught wind of the other pirate ships plans and launched a clandestine mission of their own - to board the other ship and take something they were rumored to have in heir holds.
Needless to say, they were successful at infiltrating and appropriation. There were minimal casualties (all on the defending side) and Cass left the ship in working condition, with enough supplies to keep the crew going, but much less swag then they held before. He managed to pick up more than one new crew member from the taken ship as there were several other privateers who were less than pleased with their standing at the time. He came across several people in the ship's holding cells and the rest of the small crew of Prussia's transport managed to be set free - in spite of refusing to join him.
When the comm officer heard about the kindness that was being offered through the grapevine from the others, she wanted to extend her thanks to whatever man was behind it ... but did not expect him to be anything like he was. She found herself in an awkward situation of coming to approach him but immediately pulling back at the sight of him and the sound of his voice. Somehow, the man was drawing and intimidating all together and she held back; rather than stride forward and shake the hand of a hero, she kept quiet and averted her eyes until he finally approached her.
The Captain of the Relentless gave her the same questions he had put the others through, but rather than opt to return to her post, she decided to join the crew. Cass had recognized how valuable a woman of her talent could possibly be to his crew and offered her a substantial salary and far more freedom than the Alliance could offer her. She had only one request before she would agree to join: she needed the crew's help to make it look like her leaving was not intentional. Between a few of Cass's staff, they arranged it to appear that she had been taken hostage once again, and the crew members of the transport carried this false word back to her ship, making her defection clean and easy.Additional Information:
(I also have a kind of dirty one... but I'm keeping that away for now. >.> )
Aaaand... sorry... I just wanted an opportunity to actually use the word "swag"
Finished this when I was very tired, if I made any mistakes or anyone has requests of changes, I'll fix it first thing after I wake up. I just sort of went with the first things that came to mind... -.-
