Name: Karasi Aderyn
Ons: Karasi grew up wealthy, and despite her break from her family continued to lead a mostly high class lifestyle. Still, while she likes luxury, she has a distaste for the incincerity, polite smiles, and games that the rich and powerful play. She disagrees with arranged marriages and the need for constant etiquete and social games. She respects honesty, kindness, and sincerity, and prefers her girlfriends and boyfriends to share the same values. She does not like feeling restricted in a relationship and frequently takes multiple lovers. She is something of a tomboy, between her love for engineering and mechanics and her independent streak. She responds well to respect and shared interests, as well as affection. She also does not admit it often, but she happens to really love cute things, animals, and children, and has an extensive collection of anime she watches when relaxing and alone. She owns a variety of plushies she keeps stored away, they used to be in a closet in her home. Her tastes lean slightly more towards females than males, and most of her boyfriends have been pretty or effeminate males. In bed, she likes things passionate and a bit messy, enjoying rough sex and multiple partners.
Offs: She does not like being lied to or brownnosing, though she will take the second from an employee it is not likely to get someone into her pants. She has little time for fools and stupid people, and while she likes things a bit messy in bed, she does not go for actual filth, so no scat or watersports. She likes dirty talking but not demeaning and insulting comments... she's okay with slut, but not whore or bitch as one example. Finally, arrogance and snobbishness will turn her off quickly, she had more than enough of that amoung the rich and elite her parents had her around.
-Expert Programmer/Hacker: Karasi is an expert on cyber security and is also adept at writing code. While she normally uses her skills to enhance security and stop intruders, she could easily turn her skills to hacking, and occasionally has done so in order to trace a system intruder.
-Research Engineer: Karasi has been involved in the developement of new robotic and vehicle technologies, and is adept with both electronics and mechanics. This also means she can function well as an engineer should a ship or base she's on be short on them.
-Ritual Enchanter: Karasi knows magic, but not the kind you throw fireballs with in battle. Instead, all of her spells are carefully designed rituals using patterns and planning beforehand. She imbues objects or locations with enchantments of various kinds. While powerful, like her other capabilities she needs time and preparation to use them.
Background: Karasi Aderyn was always a very promising and bright girl, making high marks in all school subjects but most especially math and science. Taking an interest in computers from a young age, she made her parents proud when she was accepted into a prestigious university on track for a computer science degree. It was not much of a surprise when she went for a second major in robotics engineering. Her parents were each very traditional in their own way, their marriage arranged and heavily encouraged by their parents, one a descendant of a successful japanese business empire, the other born from a long line of English aristocrats who had maintained their wealth through the ages by various businesses and careful investments. The marriage and subsequent merger of two large international companies allowed for great monetary success, and both parents wanted Karasi to follow their example. Unfortunately, legally they could not force her to agree with an arranged marriage, and after meeting their chosen partner for her she refused. No amount of insistence on their part would convince her, and eventually, when they threatened to disown her, she invested in creating her own seperate company and moved away. They attempted to ruin her business using their larger assets, but she managed to survive, if barely, patenting several new robotics technologies.
Before she left she had learned a large amount of magical tradition from her Japanese heritage, but she approached it as more science than art, and took to studying other traditions as well on her own. She found what teachers and information she could and has been experimenting ever since, approaching it as science and designing runic circles the same way she approached designing circuit boards. While still learning, she still firmly believes in magic as being just another science. Her approach to the subject leads some more religious practicioners to think she lacks reverence and respect, but that is not the case. She simply believes gods and spirits, while possibly magically adept, have little to do with a human's ability to cast spells unless they're taking the easy path of relying on other's strength and knowledge instead of figuring things out themselves.
When the war really began, several of her facilities were hit, and the loss of infrastructure devastated her business. Seeing that her business would fail soon due to unfilled orders and financial loss due to the war, she consolidated the most important prototypes and liquidated assets, keeping all the data they had acrued with her. She invested a portion of these assets into easily carried valuables such as gems and gold, retaining some money in a suitcase as well, and leaving the rest in several bank accounts for if she ever made it back to Terra before joining the other refugees from the war in trying to make it to the Kyrie to ask for help, determined to use the technologies she had developed and her continuing research to further the war effort against the Quartona.
