So, I'm not entirely sure if this is where Red Eve wanted me to put a character, but!
LieutenantRole on ship: Primary:
Infantry (Ship-to-Ship/Ship-to-Land), Secondary:
Lt. Samantha Yorke is a paramilitary squad commander aboard the Kalypso. Her primary expertise is in the penetration of starship armament during spaceborne infantry operations for the purposes of infiltrating and/or capturing vessels, or as she likes to call it, "breaking hulls and kicking skulls." Her talent in identifying structural weaknesses and developing sound infantry assault tactics lend themselves well to the defense and fortification of vessels, too. She has been formally trained by the military as an officer and soldier in many aspects of marksmanship, survival craft, zero-G combat, demolitions and weapons maintenance. To attain officer candidacy, she attained a Masters in physics, with a specific focus on astrogation.
She was born and raised in the Bellima V Mining Colony on Mars. She was awarded a scholarship to the Military Academy at Europa (Jupiter's moon), where she prospered as a cadet, despite being the repeated victim of sexual hazing by both her instructors and fellow cadets. She eventually married, and quickly divorced, shortly after graduating, but before being mobilized with an infantry batallion in the Andromeda star cluster. She served four years as an NCO in five theaters of operation, serving with distinction and valor, though her personal life was rife with sordid tales unbecoming of a military officer. Nevertheless, her determination and pluck saved her from court martial, and she continued to advance in rank.
She attended university for a short period of time to finalize her Masters. Civilian life did not agree with her. She was arrested for the possession of controlled substances twice, and her personal relationships spiraled out of control. Her second marriage ended in suicide. She soon returned to the armed forces upon the completion of her coursework, and entered Officer Training School in Andromeda.
Yorke has been aboard the Kalypso for two years, with the previous eight years serving at numerous military outposts across three solar systems. She has taken command of seven warships, sixteen frigates and numerous space yachts in military operations, and has participated in three armed conflicts that involved extensive terrestrial maneuvers. She is battle proven and battle ready.
Her extensive psyche analysis indicates that she copes at present with PTSD, depression and anxiety. She is described as being a manipulative person, and not against using sex to get ahead. She is also as being addicted to sex and alcohol, and partakes in the use of hullacigenic drugs when they are available. She is polyamorous, and as a result, is incapable of maintaining traditional monogamous relationships.
