So I have been working on some very short back stories for the 6 stations in the RPG I am making.
What do you think?
A committed family man Alan Garner’s love of gadgets and tinkering is second place to the love of his wife and twin little girls. Though how close a second place he will not say. Recently posted to the Ardent he hasn't been aboard for long. But his jovial antics have already earned him a reputation as the ship's comedian and prankster.
Jennifer Davro literally talked herself off of one of the Gorin Slum worlds. As soon as she was able to she enlisted with the Terran Stellar Navy as a way of escaping a life of petty crime. Although she has distanced herself from her Orion Syndicate contacts, and even her brother who is still a member, she has found the skills that she was taught can be put to good use. Desperate to prove, mostly to herself, that she can be a positive force in the galaxy she is a firm believer in the altruistic principles of the USFP.
While she cares for and is protective of her crewmates, that she considers her family, Amelia Lockheart didn’t joined the Terran Stellar Navy for any ideological reason. It was the promise of flying some of the biggest and fastest ships in the galaxy that sold her on the idea. Being five time winner of the Europa Run she is an avid pilot and champion racer.
A genius that completed his first master’s degree at the age of thirteen Dr William Maxwell is one of the USFP’s greatest minds. Feeling that he has learnt all he can from the Universities of Earth, and bored with the tedious life of an academic, he craves the excitement of fieldwork and the opportunity to be the first to encounter the strange and unknown that might exist at the edge of explored space.
Hailing from a long line of military officers dating back to Earth’s Second World War Paul Leavie followed in the family tradition and enlisted for military service. Fiercely independent he loves to test himself, be it against an enemy or against a challenge like climbing Olympus Mons on Mars. Never happier than when he has a phaser in his hand and a job that needs doing he has no desire for promotion or anything that might take him out of the field.
Christopher Hail was born on Earth but grew up on one of the Alpha Ceti Space Station Colonies. His father was killed in action ramming his own badly damaged ship into an attacking Kralien Dreadnaught saving the Station, and the young Christopher. Following in his father’s footsteps he enlisted in the Terran Stellar Navy as soon as he was old enough. He is a career officer and is working towards the big chair and a ship of his own.
