    Pilot Zel Paitcher


    On the Kraken, everyone calls each other by their job. If they're not a robot their an Ultra. Pilot is one of the Ultras, and is second only to the captain in the crazy department. He also the second oldest after the captain. The captain gave him Martian neural networking for Christmas one year (which is still celebrated even in space. Except Santa flies a light skimmer now) so Pilot can process a lot of the data fed to him by the ships sensors very quickly. While the captain is more neurotic and narcissistic in his insanity. Pilot is more whimsical.

    Sniper Roo Vernon


    Sniper, along with Soldier is in charge of the weapons on board the Kraken. Roo is dour and surly, and often exasperated with Pilot's antics. Bad things also seem to happen to Sniper a lot. One of the things unique about Sniper's augmentation is that he doesn't have lungs anymore. He has a system that allows his to aspirate instead of respirate. This allows him to keep steady when shooting. Sniper's hands and eyes are still his own. He believes there is a spiritual connection between the flesh and the trigger. He also trusts his own eyes for shooting. His scopes are good enough that enhanced optics wouldn't bring much more to the table anyway. He is also somewhat clumsy, and has a tendency to trip over things.

    Engineer Zud Tiller


    Engineer is the crewman who runs the robots and servitors, keeping the ship working. Heavy cruisers require less crew than regular cruisers, even though their slightly bigger. A normal heavy cruiser needs about thirty five to crew effectively. Kraken does it with five Ultras, five androids, two sleepwalkers, and seventeen robots. Engineer is the sanest member of the crew. He still has his moments, but is generally more level-headed than everyone else. This is a good thing, since he also doubles as the ship's 'medic'. Since most of the Ultra bodies are cybernetic, his engineering knoweldge is better than for repairs and healing than a medical doctor would be.

    Soldier Val Moore


    Soldier is the youngest Ultra on the Kraken. He wasn't part of the crew until Ringbolt. He was Martian that had been captured and forced to fight in gladatorial battles on one of the stations in the Rust Belt. Captain bought him and offered to make him an Ultra. Soldier agreed, and took a new name. He now handles heavy weaponry and explosives on the Kraken. He laughs a lot and had a fiery attitude. He was crazy before Captain Slee and the others infected him with theirs. The training he had in the arena pushed him over the edge before he met them.

    Trane Spikes


    Trane Spikes is a well connected man, and brokers information. He sometimes gathers it through idle conversation, trading bits of intel for other people's bits of intel. When people come to him asking for hard to get information, he'll hire people to find it for him. He has a cutter that he flies around in, traveling from station to station, or to Chasm City. He frequents all types of bars and clubs from dives to classy five star businesses. He goes by Mr.Spikes, as he hates his full name. However he won't change it for whatever reason. Most people only know him as Mr.Spikes anyway, so it's not something that comes up often.

    Dr.Anna Veara


    Dr.Veara has been leading the Martian splinter-faction in Ringbolt since Dr.Voynich's disappearance. Even with the change in leadership, the Martians are still just as elusive and enigmatic. They rarely deal with outsiders, preferring to stick with a network of confidants when they do. It was at her orders that the researchers and scientists were captured. What she's been doing with them is anyone's guess, and there are those who would really like to know.

    Mikhail Rubekov
    Human, Martian, Male, Age 28

    Mikhail has been part of the crew of the Panther for three years. He is a computer genius who knows all the ins-and-outs of computer systems. He has hacked into several high-profile computers, and managed to remain undetected, except for his hacking callsign "HYP3R-4C71V3" (hyperactive). So far, to his knowledge, no one outside of the crew of the Panther knows that he is HYP3R-4C71V3. He has his mental back up stored in a secure area in the Panther computer, that only the Panther's medic and Captain Tiergia knows about, in case anything were to happen to him.

    Captain Tiergia hired him for his computer skills. He isn't a soldier or ex-soldier like others of the crew. In fact, most of the time he doesn't even leave the Panther unless he is needed for his computer skills. He would prefer to hide from battle than get involved with it. Just the thought of pain panics him. Yes, he can survive in a clone, but that isn't the point to him.

    QC1: From this day forth you shall be called "Sprinkle Berryweather".

    Kevin Flynn: The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer. What did they look like? Ships, motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways? I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day... ...I got in!

    Trevor Swynn
    Pig, Male, Age 45

    Trevor is soft-spoken and highly-intelligent, for a pig. He has a wisdom that seems to defy his sub-species. Despite his soft-spoken nature, he is also a skilled warrior and sharp-shooter. Surprisingly, he is also an expert chef.

    He has been a crew member on the Panther since the very beginning. He was rescued by Tiergia and Alex from a slave auction, where the auctioneers simply considered him another dumb pig. As far as Trevor is concerned, he owes the two of them his life, and would lay down his life for them. He often advises both Tiergia and Alex on decisions, as the three of them form the core "leaders" of the crew.

    Rhys Dayne Orton
    Human, Cyborg, Male, Age 35

    Rhys (Rise) was a dedicated soldier, a highly trained demolition expert. He loved serving in the military, and loved blowing things up. He joined the military when he was 18, and served for almost ten years. He planned on serving more, but tragedy changed his plans.

    He was with his unit preparing for a mission near Neon City. It was meant to be a covert targeted strike against a terrorist who operated out of Neon City. All the calculations were correct, and only the terrorist's building was to be imploded with him and his soldiers inside. Unfortunately, they were discovered some Justicars. In the resulting chaos, Rhys prematurely detonated the explosion, hoping to create a distraction for his team to escape. Instead of imploding the building, the resulting explosion destroyed several buildings, killing many people, including his team members, and the Justicars that were trying to stop them.

    Rhys lost an arm and leg in the process and was left for dead. When discovered by rescue personnel, he was believed to be one of the many innocent bystanders that were caught in the explosion. Those who knew the truth were dead, which was the only reason he wasn't arrested or worse. He was given a cybernetic arm and leg to replace the ones he lost, and spent the next year in Neon City recovering. He was presumed dead by the military, which disavowed any action in the bombing. He could no longer return to the life he loved.

    Six years ago, he encountered Alex Redman when he and Tiergia were in Neon City on a job. Alex recognized him from his time in the military, and convinced Tiergia to bring him aboard as their demolitions expert. He has been a loyal member of The Panther crew ever since.

    Lissy Delta (Liz)
    Human, Martian, Female, Age 38

    Liz is extremely intelligent and began studying medicine at a young age. She idolized Dr. Voynich, even though she had never met her. She studied everything she could surrounding medicine, including cybernetics and genetic alterations. As Martians didn't embrace those areas, she decided to go to Neon City where she felt she could do more. Like any other Martian, she would never use those on herself, but that didn't stop her from using those talents on others.

    One of those she used her medical and cybernetic abilities with was Rhys Dayne Orton. He was nearly dead from the explosion when she operated on him. He was given a lot of blood as well a cybernetic arm and leg of her own design. She felt it was among her best work. After the operation was complete, though, he was released to others for his care and recovery. She never expected to see him, or his cybernetics, again.

    Six years ago, she was approached by Tiergia, the captain of The Panther. They needed a doctor, and had heard of her medical skills. When she discovered that Rhys had just joined her crew as well, she couldn't pass the opportunity by. She felt that Rhys, and perhaps by extension the rest of the crew, would make appropriate medical test subjects for her. She never did state those reasons, and only she knows her connection to Rhys and his cybernetics.

    Since joining the crew, she has also become their resident public relation person. She is a very good speaker and has a reputation that no one else on the crew can claim.
