I'm going to likely stick with an asari. I have nothing against humans or anything, but I'll always have a fondness for the sexy blue aliens lol. Besides, just because they're monogendered doesn't mean they can't have fun on occasion.
And Ace, pleasure to see you here buddy, it's been a long while. I'll poke at this as the day progresses, but with this sinus headache I've been fighting for the better part of a week and going on a second, it might be a while.

126 years old, still young by asari standardsGender:
'Female', but all asari are monogenderedSexuality:
Bisexual but has a strong preference for women of almost any race, although not so much for other asari. (Has a fondness for quarians, drell, and humans however, and not necessarily in that order.)Race:
Alura's body is a perfect example of a life in service to the things she has devoted herself to. Whether that passion and drive was geared towards her fifty plus years in the asari military, or her few years of dancing on a stage for credits and the lusts and passions of a crowd of partygoers, she gave it her all, and her densely packed, streamlined dancer's grace and musculature are evidence of this lifestyle. Every movement is aa study in fluidic grace and elegance not often seen outside of the asari, but Alura makes it look perfectly natural rather than forced as is sometimes the case. A series of swirls and black lines are visible down her right arm, the right side of her face, partially across her lower neck and collarbone, around the right lower side of her flat stomach, and down her right thigh and around her sex that further accentuate her deadly if beautiful dancer's physique. White tribal markings that follow the natural curves of her headcrest can also be seen on her smooth, almost purple skinned face with deep, sea blue eyes and a pair of soft lips that are used to smiling and laughing regularly when they aren't otherwise engaged, often with another woman from another species.
Typically, Alura tends to dress in a very relaxed fashion when she's not on a mission. When she's not in her asari commando styled light armor leathers that are typically all black in her case, Alura favors human styled T-shirts that allow her to keep her midriff bare, along with sweaters, hoodies, even shorts and form fitting jeans although she also has a small collection of much more traditional asari robes and dresses, mixed in with a few stripper outfits and lingerie outfits from her brief stint as a dancer after she retired from active service.Job Title/Occupation: VanguardClass Specialization:

Alura knew what she wanted to be as soon as she could understand what it meant. She grew up on stories about her grandmother and her asari commando friends, saving innocent people, freeing slaves, and destroying bad guys wherever they decided to rear their ugly heads, which unfortunately numbered mostly among the batarians and krogans more often than not during those days. While the reality wasn't quite what Alura had expected at the time, she still kept that passion and drive to help people first and foremost, although she now understands the cost it often takes on a person's soul to go to war against pirates, slavers, and worse. Despite having lost friends before she eventually retired from active duty, although she still takes the occasional mission from time to time, Alura still possesses a love and thrill for life and adventure, but it's tempered by her experiences in the Asari Huntresses. And despite having seen the worst the galaxy has to offer, Alura has also seen the beauty of it and its many peoples, their strengths and creativity, their loves and their passions, which she has often even shared in since she's still a maiden at her core.
While she might not seem like an efficient killing machine on the surface with over thirty years of training and another twenty in service to the asari military, Alura's love for life is only matched by her discipline mind and surgical precision when the bullets start flying as she utterly dismantles anything that gets in the way of her allies or saving innocent bystanders. She understands that sometimes the path to peace requires good people to do horrible things, and if she has to do those things so others can sleep peacefully, she'll get the job done to the best of her ability. That doesn't mean she likes violence or death and destruction though, and she has endured her share of sleepless nights, but nothing so traumatic that a couple of drinks of light alcohol and some companionship with the fairer sex hasn't been able to fix...thus far at any rate.Background:
Alura D'Venus was born on Illium before her asari parents moved out to the asari home world of Thessia to be closer to her matriarchal grandmother in her final years. It was here, amidst the monolithic and ancient cities of her people steeped in its rich culture and beautiful pieces of art, music, and more, that Alura first learned about the years her grandmother spent as an asari commando, those most venerated and respected of warriors, right up there with the Justicars, among her people. She quickly grew enraptured with all of her grandmother's stories of infiltrating pirate dens, of sabotaging illegal red sand factories, of freeing slaves from the batarians, and countless other stories that her grandmother didn't censor as much as her parents would have liked. But Alura would come to appreciate the old woman's honesty and candor in her later years when she joined the Huntresses straight after her school years were over, despite her parents' efforts to persuade her to settle down, or at the least see the galaxy for a couple decades before devoting herself to such a life, but Alura wouldn't listen. She had always known what she was going to do with her life, and she went after her dreams with both hands open.
Training was difficult but rewarding for the young maiden as she saw more of the galaxy than she might have otherwise been able to do on a dancer's salary. And while she didn't get to enjoy life in quote the same way as her parents did while they had been maidens themselves, Alura still grew to love the various people she encountered throughout her years before and after she had finished training, which took a total of thirty years, and happily devoted the next twenty three years of her life to serving her fellow sisters in the Huntresses. While the reality of military life was a little more gruesome and taxing on her spirit than her grandmother had warned her it would be, Alura hadn't gone in completely blind to the dangers or the costs either as she did her part in making the galaxy a little brighter despite every mission she had been a part of always ending in at least a dozen enemy kills before it was over. A raid on a batarian slave den when she was 119 was her hardest and most difficult mission to date, it was also her last, since they knew they were coming. Despite having been tipped off to their presence, her squad was still able to save most of the human, asari, krogan, and turian slaves they came across before it was over, but the cost had almost been too much for Alura because she ended up losing her best friend as well as her asari lover during the assault. Not only that, but while she had seen the inside of a batarian slaver den before, these particular batarians had been far less kind to their 'property' than most she had seen up to that point.
She still has the occasional nightmare regarding the things she has seen and experienced during that time, but the past seven years has been enough to give her a chance to heal and come to terms with most of it. That and meeting a drell by the name of Fiyan Feal during her travels, who's faith, while shaken because of her terminal disease, is still quite strong and a thing of beauty to behold in Alura's less than humble opinion. While Alura isn't a strong believer in anything she can't see or touch herself, she has often talked at length about such topics with those that find comfort in the divine or the equivalent thereof, finding such conversations a window into exploring and understanding another person's culture and those things they hold dear to their hearts. Besides, if it helps someone to face each day with confidence to believe in something, she isn't about to get in the way of them seeking such comfort and motivation to keep going.Ons:

Fiyan Feal -To be discussedNotes:
She understands and even accepts that indentured servitude is a good alternative to imprisonment for debts accrued that would need to be paid or as an alternative to community service, but what Alura has never really liked about the idea is how often more unscrupulous people have found ways to make it near complete slavery. Given her experiences in hunting down batarian slavers, she realizes her opinion is likely biased, but she tends to avoid Illium as much as possible because otherwise she might be compelled to try and save any abused indentured servants she comes across.
Actual slaves are a given however. She will always advocate their rescue first and foremost because she has seen enough suffering in the galaxy to last her a lifetime. The complete eradication of slavery would go a long way to making the galaxy a better place, but until then, she has no problem whatsoever in hunting down known slavers anywhere in the galaxy. She always checks the Wanted lists on every planet and space station she visits just in case she gets lucky, and if she happens to find one, she's perfectly fine with torturing then for information on the location of any allies they might have, the location of their base if she hasn't already found it, and anything else she'd deem necessary.
