  2. Zhenshchina-voin Klara might have been a warrior, but she was also a people person enjoying the company of others. After the war she’d played spy for a while and Tracy had taught her many of the tricks of the trade, and other much more fun things but now wasn’t the time. She ask around chatting with various people in the languages she knew, the one advantage of dealing with robot and cyborgs was that they tended to ignore how you looked after a while. It didn’t take long to figure out what was going on really, even back home they did something similar. This is all bread and circus here, no body of importance though. We might be being kept at arms length for whatever reasons. Its almost like that don’t trust us or something! As she spoke she thought she finally figured out who was fighting, weaved through the people to get a better looks. Yes it was that little bugger Otaku, if he’d actually been here she’d wring his little neck right here and now. Luckily for her someone was about to give him a good beating, and not the fun kind. Be on you guard that's Dr Otaku you're fighting down there, he's a tricky little bugger.
  3. Madame Raven Callie smiled at Charlie either unconcerned or unbothered by the arguments that she was causing with the adults. “Its just a knack I guess! Helps that one of use has been through all this before.” she glanced at her older duplicate. “And if you need to discover anything about the modern world you go to the internet, once I figured out how it worked it was just quicker and easier to find out how things had changed. The I found social media and that was it…” She must have been half listening to the other conversation as she added. “It was a woman that bought me forward in time, she didn’t bother to give me a name.”
  4. GM Post Calliope Summers Calliope looked at Ashley with the patient look of a teacher used to dealing with many different types of students. “I only found out a couple of days ago, I was planning to tell you but my younger self seemed to be a little impatient to visit old haunts.” she looked a little wistful for a few moments at her younger self “Its pleasant really seeing a younger me unburdened by what happened just a few days later.” The moment passed and the grand chess-master was back as, seeing her younger self was distracted, leaned in to talk to the older heroes. “Someone is trying to disrupt my timeline and I do not like it one bit. For now I think it best to keep her here whilst we try and find out who is trying to do such a things. Worse of the worse we can use a telepath to suppress the memories until the timeline is reset properly, I can just about survive having two set of memories of teenage years!”

  9. Klara will fall back on her old spy training and poke around a little and see what she could find.
  10. The Traveller Ancient warrior and engineer who travels the universe helping those she finds needs help. History Sitara was born over five thousand years ago in a village of Shashikala (Brightmoon) in the region of Harappa, Pakistan, home of what is now called the Indus Valley civilzation. She would have been fated to a simple life if it wasn’t for the arrival of an alien ship. Those aliens were members of an advanced species now know as the Architechs, called by Sitara’s people as the mArttik Avata (of a Princely Race), a peaceful people who wished to preserved the evolving species of this area of space. This bought them in conflict with another species the Amitra (The Enemy or Advisary) who wished to conqueor and exploite those new born, to them, speicies. Being a totally pacifistic race the Architechs instead recruited members of those species they were trying to protect and trained them to fight a massive interglatic war to protect this region of the galaxy. The young Harappan woman, always an explorer and adventurer, egerly volunteered to go and fight in this environment, the Arichechs making sure they understood exactly what they were getting themselves into. They then took a few humans, including Sitara, to there homeworld where they altered there bodies to better be able to cope with the environment they’d be fighting. They then trained the recuits not only in the arts of war but how to build and maintaine the equipment that they’d need to survive in this conflict. Sitara had an ability in such fields and became a skilled engineer as well as a capable warrior A long lived races, maybe to the point of near immortality, they weren’t in a rush to fight this conflict instead it being a long series of cold then hot battles. Not to loose there warriors to the ages they made sure that they were also capable of lasting down the ages. Still the final battles were brutal things with everything being thrown at each other in battles that spanned this whole region of space, and influnced the myths and legends of many races that viewed only a fraction of the war. Near the very end of the conflict Sitara was wounded, near fatally, and was placed in healing statsis to recovered from her wounds. Even she does not know what happened at the end of the war, only that the galaxy is still free and the two ancient races, along with her fellow soldiers, were now gone from the universe. Waking from her slumber Sitara found a very different universe without the battle she’d fought for so long. After trying, and failing, to try and find out what had happened in the conflict she left the world she’d ended iup on and began to wander the universe to experience the myriad of people and places that had sprung up in her absence. Sometimes she would just observe and enjoy the culture, sometimes she would get involved fighting to protect the innocence, a few times she even ended up ruling some people. Thought after a while, from a few weeks to a few decades she would feel that wanderlust again and set off towards the stars. Eventually she came in contact with a newly expanding stellar empire, the Delaztri Empire, and helped them form an elite fighting force the Praetorians based on the ancient force she had fought within all those centuries ago. Despite her age and experience she choose to fight alongside rather than lead the force, not feeling she should impose her will on this nascent organization. In a strange mirroring of the original conflict this empire came under the threat on a dominating power, the Communion. Again she fought to ensure that this insidious threat didn’t impose there will upon the galaxy. And again they ended up in cryogenic syspension, this time however ended up alongside her fellow Praetorians. Costume and Appearance (What your character looks like, in civilian and heroic identity.

Do you have facial hair? I’ve tried many styles over the centuries, right now I tend to keep it fairly long. Do you consider yourself attractive? Do others? Beauty standards vary so much through the galaxy, but I like to think I hold my own among humanoids. Do you have any scars, tattoos, piercings, or birthmarks? My regeneration means I can’t keep any body marking, though I’ve tried a few things over the years. Do you resemble anyone famous? After a few millennia I think its more the other way around. Do you have a dominant hand? Always been fine with both hands, its a gift I guess. What kind of clothing do you wear? For everyday use I tend to prefer a simple jumpsuit. Do you wear makeup? Normally not. What is your vocal range? Is your voice distinctive in some way? Good enough to carry a drinking song. Do you have any distinctive habits, nervous tics, or mannerisms?

History Where do you come from? Small village of Shashikala it’s not existed for a very long time Have you made any major moves, or do you live in your hometown? Only all across the spiral arm of this galaxy. Do you feel loyal to your country of citizenship? Do you consider yourself patriotic? How do you feel about the government of your country? My people are long gone, I’ve found new allies to pledge myself too. How do you feel about the place you come from? I don’t think about it much, but those rare times I miss it terribly. Where is your home town? What was/is it like? Somewhere in place now called Pakistan, I’ve not been back recently. Growing up, were most of the people you knew similar to you, or were you somehow a minority? How did that affect you? Growing up I was pretty normal really. Is there something you've always been really good at or really bad at? How has that affected your life? Exploration, was always looking to see what was over that next hill. Were there any traumatic experiences in your early years (death of a family member, abandonment, orphaned at an early age)? Until the mArttik Avata arrive things were going pretty good. Briefly describe a defining moment in your childhood and how it influenced your life. There was a sacrid cave that no one was meant to go in, it was haunted or cursed or something. One night I snuck in regardless, finding it was full of this beautiful cave art older then even our little village. From then on I was always sticking me nose into places that I wasn’t allowed to go. What stupid things did you do when you were younger? There was this little river spirit we used to tease all the time, luckily it wasn’t powerful enough to do more than a little shock. Where did you go to school? How much school did you have, and did you enjoy it? No school for me we learned what we needed through watching others do there job, and questions lots of questions. Do you have any mementos of your childhood? What are they, and why did you keep them? If you have none, why not? An hair comb that I wore the day I left Earth, I still wear it often. When did you decide to become a hero? Why? Did anyone influence you one way or another in the decision? The mArttik Avata needed warriors to fight against an ancient foe, and I couldn’t turn down a chance to explore the Galaxy. Is the reason you give people for becoming a hero different than your real reason? If so, why? Nope I’m a simple girl with a simple wanderlust. Do you have any deep, dark secrets in the past that may come back to haunt you? We fought a war among the stars and whilst fighting I’ve done some suspect things in the past, whole species might have a grudge against me, though to them I might be no more than a legend. Do you represent yourself as being different from who you really are? Why? What you see is what you get. If you do have these secrets, what do you fear would happen if the truth became known? How far would you go to protect those secrets? I’ve come to term with what I’ve done in the past and if I can I’d make amends for what I’d done. Do you have any sort of criminal record? If so, is it public knowledge? I was wanted for a bit in the Lor Republic and I’m still an outlaw in the Khanate. Family What are your biological parents' names? Were you raised by them? If not, please explain and describe who raised you. I was raised by my parents yes. What was their standing in the community? What did/do they do for a living? Farming folk when it was still a new idea. Where are your parents now? They live on in my mind now. Did your family stay in one area or move around a lot? Apart from a yearly visit to the market at the nearby larger town we stayed in our own village. How did you get along with their parents? How do you get along with them now (if applicable). I always got on well with my parents. How do your parents view you now, or how would they? I think they’d be proud of all the good I’ve done through the centuries, though maybe not how I spend my spare time. Do you have any siblings? If so how many and what are their names? Describe your relationship with them. I come from a large family, I’m sure hundred of generations have come from my brothers and sisters. What was your birth order in the family? I was a middle child, some of my elder siblings had already married before I came of age. Where are your siblings now (if applicable)? Do they have families of their own? What do they do? As far as I know I’m the only surviving member of my family. Do you stay in touch with them or have you become estranged? I had to give them all up when I left for the stars. Do you love or hate one member of the family in particular? I think its been to long to hold a grudge about the petty things that happened back then. Is any member of the family special to you in any way (perhaps, as a confidant, mentor, or arch-rival)? Not really. Are there any black (or white) sheep in the family (including you)? If so, please explain. I guess I’m the black sheep of the family. Do you have a notorious or celebrated ancestor? If so, please explain, including how it has affected your life. I always enjoying meeting our ancestors during the special days when they could visit. Do you have a partner and children currently? If so, please describe them. I’ve adopted a little girl who I look after when I can. If you do not have a partner or children, do you want them someday? How firm are you in your opinion on this, and what might change your mind? I’ve had a few various children down the centuries. What type of person would be your ideal mate? Once I figure it out I’ll let you know, though I really enjoying all the practice to help find out. Relationships Do you have any close friends? If so, please describe them, and how you came to be close to them. I like to figure the fellow Praetorians as friends. Do you have a best friend? If so, how did they become your best friend? How close are you to your best friend? Even though she’s technically my boss I like to think of Amara as my best friend, we get to call each other out on the crap we (well mostly me) get up with. If you were to go missing, who would worry about you? Eventually all of them I hope, I do tend to go wandering for long periods. Have you lost any loves? If so, how did it happen, and what did you do? Time has not been kind on me, I’ve lost many people down through the ages. Do you have any bitter enemies? If so, please describe them and their history with you. The upside of that is you tend to outlive your enemies as well. If you have enemies, how do you think they might attempt to work against you in the future? I’m sure many people wish me and the Praetorians harm What is the worst thing someone has done to you? Wiping out an entire civilization and those I fought with counts I guess. Where do your loyalties lie? In what order? When the Praetorians call I’ll always be there, but I also always look out for myself. Who or what do you trust the most? Why? My fellow Praetorians obviously. Who or what do you despise? Why? Bullies anyone who tried to oppress people really. What qualities do you admire most in other people? Are these qualities you possess? Spirit of freedom and a desire to explore. Things that I have in spades. What qualities do you hate most in other people? Do you have any of those qualities? Those that try to oppose the freedom of others. Do you have a secret identity? If so, who knows it? Do you hide it from people who are close to you? Why? No, I doubt anyone really knows who I am really. Do you work well on teams and in groups? Are you a leader or a follower? I’ve been involved in teams for most of my career, I can lead if needed but for now I follow. Are you on a super team? If so, how do you get along with your comrades? Do you trust them, or do you have secrets from them? I’m a member of the Praetorians. I get on with all of them as far as I know. Are you a member of any church, fraternal organization, club, committee, political party, or other group? How much time do you spend on that? I’ve been members of many of these over the years. Personality & Beliefs Who are your heroes? Did you ever become disillusioned with former heroes or idols? If so, why and what were the circumstances? Do you like being a hero? If so, what is the most rewarding part? If not, what makes you keep doing it? The sense of adventure and challenging yourself against the universe, what’s not to love? And if that gets to much there’s always a chance to just go off and explore the wonders of the universe. Is there anything that would make you give up hero work, or even switch sides? I’d never switch side but sometimes its tempting to just wander off for a while. What are your short term goals (what would you like to be doing within a year)? I’m trying to find out what happened to the race that created me in the first place. What are your long term goals (what would you like to be doing twenty years from now)? I plan to explore every star in the universe. What is your greatest fear? Why? What do you do when something triggers this fear? Mundanity. Is there anything you would give you life for? I’ve tried to give my life to protect others before, but its never seen to stick. How do you feel about money and material wealth? Do you desire it or disdain it? Are you miserly with what you have, or do you like to share? Is it mark of success, or a means to an end? I’ve been wealthy before, it never seems to last though. How do you generally treat others? With respect, unless they’re an arse. Are you a trusting person? Has your trust ever been abused? Mostly trusting, but never to much I’ve seen the worse in people before. Are you introverted (shy and withdrawn) or extroverted (outgoing)? Do you have a lot of self-confidence? Very extroverted and very, very confident. How do you act around attractive, available members of your preferred sex? I have a habit of taking what I want. What are your most annoying habits? I may spend to much time in the bar, though I don’t starts fights... that often. Do you feel contempt for any general category of people? Who are they, and why? I give everyone a chance, but only one. What is your favorite food? Do you prefer any particular type of food? Do you take the time to enjoy your food, or do you eat as fast as you can? I miss my mothers cooking, I doubt they even cook the same kind of foods as we eat back then. What is your favorite drink (alcoholic or otherwise)?

  13. The Architects History Around four thousand years ago the Sagittarian arm was a very different place, with most of the major stellar powers having not yet left their home systems. Instead, two races dominated this area of space. Having now both gone, long before most had left their home planet, information is sparse on these races, with only they’re ruins and a single person with information on these times. There are also traces of them in myths and legends of the local region. The so-called Architects, named because of the building of impressive and intricately beautiful structures and items. Were a pacifistic space faring species that defended, though maybe not claimed, a sizable area of local space. They came into conflict with another species, often called just the Adversary who wished to dominate other species. Not being warlike, the Architects instead recruiting members of other species and modifying them genetically to be better fighters, before equipping them and sending them to fight battles to protect against the Adversary. There is some information that they took skilled individuals and cloned them as backup troopers. This finally culminated in a massive stellar battle between the two species where it seems that the two species managed to wipe each other out, to the extent that when the others ventured into space, they found no trace of the two races or their servants. However, with their skills at cloning and other advanced powers, including the ability to give near immortality to their people, suggests that they might have survived in some manner but choose to leave this area of space for places unknown. The only reason to figure that they won is that the Adversary had malicious intent on the emergence races, though it could be possible they are just waiting for a time to strike. Biology and Appearance Information about even the appearance of the two races are in doubt, with different races describing them in different ways. Even the one consistent description, as tall four armed blue skinned humanoids, with four black eyes, is in doubt as the person describing them admits that the race would change its appearance depending on the circumstances. It has been suggested that the race, and maybe the Adversary, were energy beings and that was why they fought their battle through proxies. Even if they were, or are, they seem particularly attached to the physical world and creating physical items. Their beautiful intricate items are highly valued and collected but other races.
