The only thing that is consistent about Milly is her sandy blonde hair and blue eyes. When working on ship she can be found in beaten up jeans or breaches and work shirts or a set of coveralls. When on planet she likes to ďdress up,Ē which tends to be a shabby chic sort of look. She has no real concept high society so her clothing can end up as a mish mosh of things that she thinks looks nice. Milly doesnít mind getting dirty in the line of work so when she is working hard she can often be found with smudges of dirty or engine oil or soot depending on what she is working on.Distinguishing Characteristics:
Milly has a tattoo of a musical note in the shape of a heart on her forearm. Milly does love her bowler hat and will wear it whenever she can.Family:
Milly is the middle daughter of Joshua and Agnes Carson. She has eleven other siblings, six older and five younger. Malcom, Delilah, Sarah, Joshua Jr., Buddy, Terrance, (Millicent), Matilda, Agatha, Bart, Carter and Adelaide (in order of birth).Personality:
Milly is fully aware that the only person that truly cares about Milly is Milly. This simple fact colors her existence. Yes she has friends and yes she can work within a team, because if people like you they are less likely to turn on you, but that doesnít mean that if push came to shove she would sacrifice herself for anyone. She isnít that stupid. Better them than me is a pretty good motto for Milly.
As a former farmerís daughter Milly is used to hard work and doesnít shy from it. She doesnít like laziness in others and expects that they will take care of their business with little grumbling. There isnít much about ship life that is as backbreaking and dirty as growing up on a farm.
Millyís childhood didnít offer much in the way of education past about a high school level and while she is a pretty little thing she has no concepts of high flatulent manners. She can swear like a sailor in multiple languages and often does so. She laughs loud with an occasional snort and likes her drink. Dainty she is not.Weaknesses:
Milly is a survivor. As much as she enjoys being a part of that Satori crew, if it came down to her life or theirs she would choose hers every day and twice on Sunday. Milly has no real awareness of etiquette and high society and probably never will.Notable Skills:
Speaks English and Mandarin with some pigeon Cantonese. Milly is a very good shot, preferring to use her six-shooters or a shotgun. Growing up on the farm exposed her to a lot of skills. She isnít an expert at any of them, but she can patch up a wound, fit a car, rig all sorts of mechanical thing-a-ma-gigs, cook, take care of animals and grow crops among other skills. When there isnít someone that specializes in a skill on the Satori that job often falls to Milly because she can find a way to figure out what needs to be done even if it will only last until they find someone more capable for a permanent fix. She is also a fine dancer.Weapons:
2 LaMat revolvers, Winchester Model 1300 - 12 Gauge, Hunting KnivesHistory:
Milly grew up on a farm on Ezra in the Georgia System. Like most of the families on Ezra at the time her family was and is farmers. She has 11 siblings, 6 older and 5 younger who as far as she knows still farm the fields of Ezra scraping out a living from the land. Milly always wanted more for herself though. It wasnít that she shied away from the hard work or didnít enjoy the sun setting in the fields. She has mostly good memories of Ezra, but knowing that there were whole other worlds out there with billions of people and experiences waiting to be discovered was something that grabbed ahold of Milly and didnít let go. When she was eighteen years old her parents informed her that they had agreed to give Millyís hand in marriage to one of the other local farmers, a much older scrum of a man with loose ties to the newly arrived Niska, Milly stole a family shotgun, horse and her potential husbands dowry an used them to buy her way on to the first tramp freighter off of Ezra.
She didnít know that the dowry was really a payment to Niskaís new criminal enterprise. It wasnít a lot of money, not enough for them to come looking for her, but enough to put Milly on the organizations radar. Life off planet wasnít all that Milly imagined and she struggled to find her way. She was pretty enough to be a companion, but not all that interested in lying on her back all day and frankly didnít have the manners to cut it anyway. She was a hard worker though and didnít mind getting her hands dirty. Growing up on the farm gave her a broad knowledge of a lot of subjects. She could take care of animals, patch up injuries, she knew how to handle a shooting iron and could rig field fixes on ground vehicles to make them work in a pinch. Once on ship she picked up other handy bits and pieces of starship maintenance and was always fine with being simple labor if it meant getting her from one place to another and didnít ask a lot of question about what kind of job the crew was pulling.
Milly hooked up with the Satori a couple of years ago at Lilac. By then she had picked up enough Mandarin to be considered fluent with a bad accent and knows a bit of Cantonese. Captain Nyari knows about her issues leaving Ezra, but she has managed to stay under the radar and one step ahead of the cortex tags for the moment. Milly continues her work as a gun-hand on the Satori and has not real aspiration to lead. Some of the Captainís choice of jobs does concern her a bit, not so much for the type of work, but for the fact that she could get tagged with much bigger crimes by association than she can stay ahead of. So far though the Captain has shown to be as adept at staying ahead of the law as Milly would be on her own and the working relationship has worked out well for the both of them.Likes:
