I know I mentioned this on the OOC..but here's Shirala back for more.
If you're not accepting female characters anymore that's cool but since she's already been in the world, I thought I'd throw her into the mix.
Shirala is tall for your typical Asari standing at 1.90 m. Her well built and maintained body has it's curves but each is accented by very taught and powerful lean muscles. Shirala can usually be found wearing light armor to give her the agility and speed that she needs to stay one step ahead of any opponent.Job Title/Occupation:

Shirala's recent past has colored her view of the world fairly darkly, giving her a rather pessimistic view on the nature of humanoids. She still has a heart and works to find the right path, but she's less likely to step out to help in a situation that doesn't serve her interests. While Shirala will never act in a evil or morally questionable way towards innocents, she is likely to be less willing to act in defense of those she views to have compromised their morals. Background:
Shirala was born in the Benazi region of Atolia, an Asari Republics colony in the Antumbra Reach. She sought huntress training during her early Maiden years and was accepted into Benazi's training regime. She and her fellow huntress trainees were taught combat, stealth, coordination, analysis and survival in numerous locations on Atolia, including a thirteen-month isolation survival exercise on the Lotav Tundra in the planet's northern polar expanse. After the bulk of her training was complete, she was named by her fellow trainees as a commando candidate. Her instructors confirmed the recommendation, and she undertook an additional eight years of training as one of the Benazi select, under the personal guidance of Matriarch Kasgara.
Shirala served her first thirty year contract in Ulee's Commandos with distinction, with commendations for courage under fire, being wounded in the course of duty and peaking with a berth aboard the Serrician dreadnought Triumph of Virtue. Upon finishing her contract, Nassa immediately re-enlisted for another thirty years. Ten years into her second contract, her Commando unit was assigned to the border colony of Eletania, on the edge of Republic space, the suspected base of an Asari pirate ring known for slaving raids on alien worlds. With contradicting orders from their command, Shirala's unit engaged the pirates, inflicting heavy casualties on the enemy and forcing them to withdraw. While the Commandos pursued the pirates, in the ensuing firefight her squad was decimated and Shirala was left for dead.
Shirala was found a week later by an Eclipse recon party who was scouting the planet for resources. Shell shocked from losing her entire unit and being left by the military as a casualty, Shirala eventually signed on with Eclipse, her impressive credentials secured a junior officer's berth in the Eclipse Sisterhood. Shirala's first few years as a mercenary proved an eye-opening experience. While many contracts proved little different to her service in the Commandos (albeit with much higher manpower and a stricter military hierarchy), her contracts to Omega and the colonies of Orige Two and Mayaniss involved committing war crimes against both combatant and civilian populations. Still a Commando at heart, Shirala couldn't help bring herself to engage in such acts, undergoing a crisis of faith with both herself and her Siarist upbringing.
The turning point was her company's deployment to the world of New Hong Kong in the Nemean Abyss as part of a large-scale attack on a warlord known as One-Eyed Eluam. Assigned to the spearhead of the assault, Shirala came under attack from child soldiers, suicide bombers, hidden explosives and radioactive ammunition. The worst came just as Shirala and her unit secured the warlord. The batarian set off a chemical weapons shell inside his own command centre while he made his escape, incapacitating the Eclipse force.
When her unit was returned to their headquarters, Shirala made off with a Mantis Gunship and fought her way to freedom from Eclipse. She spent the next several years using her skills to track down Eclipse members who had taken part in the morally questionable acts. In that time she's established a reputation as a Commando and a Bounty Hunter. Ons:

Shirala's ship the Kreone is a smaller Corvette which has been outfitted for fast in and out operations. Shirala has spent the last three years since she aquired it from a target she was paid to capture refitting it for small unit special commando insertions. Using Asari and Taurian engineering advancements in stealth technology, she's updated the ship to essentially disappear in space. The light armaments are powerful enough to destroy small fighters and interceptors and disable medium size transports.
