I wanted to try to have a writeup for everyone to see how we'd get along. These are all suggestions, so people are welcome to deny, alter or make other suggestions as they like ^_^
Could have Krysta be part of the team that extracted Red. Her not knowing anything about Red but working to save her serves to underscore the blind loyalty thing she's got going on. If she died in the process, that helps underscore her status as a phoenix.
Although I'm not 100% what would be involved in this, it totally sounds like something Krysta would do.
Although I'm not sure how these two would really have met, Krysta would very easily be suggestible to stuff like sex and protecting, unless she had a mission specifically against your character or something your character stands for.
It seems like both of our characters have the knack for stepping up for heroic causes. It's not at all difficult to imagine the two stepping up as a brains and brawn operation.
If Puppeteer resleeves or changes body while in simulspace, Krysta has absolutely no difficulty with sexy times occurring as well. From Krysta's perspective, we befriend and care about someone for their mind, but sex is purely a question of physical desire.
Maybe Krysta met you back when you were a high-class socialite? It'd be interesting to see the tables turning therein, especially if your character used to be a brat. It'd be possible to have so enraged and hurt Krysta that she'd actually take joy in revenge, though that would take some effort, and far more likely to just have a subtle balance of power shifting.
Krysta gets beat up a lot, and as long as Doctor Octopus is a gentleman, she doesn't mind getting patched up.
Same deal on being sexually interested in the morph and not the ego where gender is concerned. Not honestly sure what to suggest for background, though.
How bad of a grudge would Drop hold if Krysta and her have been hired out onto different factions of various things and have each killed each other at one point?
Pretty easy to claim that Krysta has worked for them as a bodyguard before. I just played Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis a few days ago, so the concept is relatively fresh in my brain.
I miss anybody?
