At 26 years of age, the curvaceous Karmen of alabaster skin, stands at five foot and seven inches tall. With toned legs, trailing up to wide hips, most would find this woman cooking up more in the sheets than in the kitchen. Wide hips are complimented by her slightly slimmer waistline, of which leads up to her busty D-cups.
Although her onyx hair seem black and untamed from the beaded style of dreads, it's usually held with various head bands and even handkerchiefs at times. To most she appears to be violent and dark, as bright green eyes are usually accented with heavily smoky make up, but one look at her seductive smile says otherwise. Generally she appears in various tanks and lacy skirts, with the addition of combat boots and a white apron, not the assumed chefs robes but she has always been of a different kind.Specialty:
Culinary, Drug trade, cultural consultant, and knives. Home Planet:
To say she has a set home would be false. Although she was born on the planet Dratisen, she has been constantly traveling since pre-adolesence. Her parents were cooks, just as she is, and they traveled by shuttle to not only sell their cuisine but to learn more of other foods from multiple worlds. This not only opened up her eyes to different ways people lived, but to the resources they offered as well.
Her mother and father encouraged her to be in the kitchen with them as she grew up, and most of her recipes came from them. As she became an adult, her parents chose to retire and leave the business to her. This was both a gift and yet the start of her curse. When she started out, she was barely able to keep the regulars her parents had. Although she knew the recipes, most complained the meals were not as good as they used to be. Karmen was in a panic, she needed the funds and she did not want to disappoint her parents. An offer came one day, by a shady man who promised her a flourishing business as well as extra profit. He sold her a special drug, it made the food taste better but also had addictive properties.
Karmen knew her new way of running the traveling kitchen was wrong, but as money came in and her parents praise as well, she could not help herself. Soon she was selling the drug alongside her food. Different worlds were soon exposed thanks to her cooking. She even managed to wrangle in assistance to help distribute the narcotic. It was all going well until authorities of Erlik-5 were tipped of her suspicious activity upon her visit. An official went undercover, posing as a seller who wanted in on her wealth. She was clueless to the setup, and ended up being busted.
Luckily she managed to get away, however the accounts she stored her money in were frozen. This now left her broke and starting from the bottom again, while also a fugitive in the process. Her parents had gotten word of what she had done. They wanted her to turn herself in, but Karmen simply could not face the consequence. She returned the shuttle craft to them, said her goodbyes and traveled else where to find some sort of salvation. Reason for Leaving Home:
Salvation, as well as redemption. She hopes to start a new life somewhere, and to escape her past. Reason You Find Yourself on a Smuggling Ship:
One of her old distributors told her about the ship. With some charm and offer of her services, she joined up and hoped to hitch a ride or even find a purpose in a new land elsewhere. The meals she offered were far more appetizing than dehydrated rations, so it was agreed she would serve and even offer knowledge of what she knew about the worlds she had visited.Further Background Information:
Karmen has never done the drug she sold herself, but some exposure to it has given her a case of mild paranoia. Randomly she will lash out and make accusations if she feels others are trying to deceive her. The fact that she is on the run, as well as being tricked by an undercover official, has also put her on high alert. Thus she rarely trusts anyone easily, keeping her inner circle a very small one.
Years in the drug business has also caused her to be very cautious. She trained herself in her free time to use short blades, just in case she needed to make a quick getaway from a shady deal. Although she is not a professional, she does have knowledge on the critical points to make cuts, this also being a trait of her butchery skills. Warrants for your arrest (optional):
Drug smuggling/distribution. Criminal Background (optional):
Aside from starting a small network of dealings, as well as dealing the drug herself, she even distributed drugs into the food to her unknowing customers. This hooked many onto the narcotic, those who are still trying to go through the process of rehab to get off it. I'm really good at:
Cooking, cutting, smooth talking, learning things quickly, yelling (usually when her paranoia is triggered)I'm really bad at:
Handling stressful situations, making friends and trusting people, most technology, and keeping focus (unless its cooking related)My favorite place:
Anywhere that does not have her imprisoned. The person I miss most:
Her parents. She looked up to them, and wanted to make them proud. She regrets the choice she made, and hopes one day she can ask for forgiveness and make amends with them. The person I admire most:
Her parents, they taught her everything she knew as well as giving her their business to take over. O/Os:LinkIf my player drops or can not post for a while please:
Have someone take her over, write her out, NPC her, I'm cool with any of it.
