  1. Kestevan 79 The Spinal Core, Coalition Victory Station Lor time mark 1482.4 [April 2, 2016 (Terran Calender)] The Voidrunners' work rarely brought them near CoVic Station, as their bounties typically favored the border regions, away from whatever government, organization or individual that was looking for them. But their latest bounty had required them to make the delivery to CoVic Station, so now they had the rare chance to take in the thriving galactic hub that had arisen in the aftermath of the Incursion. Currently, they were making their way into the Spinal Core. The Spinal Core was a section of CoVic Station that had developed as the central market place, filled with business and shops. Its named derived from the fact that it was built along the inside of a hundred-meter-wide shaft that descended deep into the lower levels of the station from the section where most of the embassies and other governmental facilities had been established. With the somewhat hasty construction that had taken place in making parts of CoVic Station habitable, the engineers had not bothered trying to alter the shaft, but had simply set up the artificial gravity generators so that the entire surface of the Spinal Core was covered with two or three story buildings and numerous stalls. Assuming one could find a straight path that went all the way around the interior of the Core, it would have been possible to have starting walking and ending up right back where one had started. While there had been an initial attempt to set out orderly and symmetrical buildings and shops, expansion and additions had quickly sprung up that created twisting and curving avenues. Added to this were numerous small stalls and vendors selling their wares on a mat laid on the ground, making the Spinal Core something of a crowded, fast paced environment where all manner of goods could be found, if one looked hard enough. The Voidrunners had been taking in the sights of the Spinal Core, and taking advantage of the wide array of goods, when the news that a Stellar Khanate warship had emerged from the nearby wormhole and approached the station. As sense of nervousness had come over many in the Core, although they still went about their business as best they could. It lessened somewhat when the news began to spread that apparently the Khanate ship was delivering a diplomatic envoy that was to meet with Ambassador Th'emme and envoys from other intergalactic governments that had embassies aboard the station.

    Space Jam

    GM Iridium Shore Gerivan, Volash Lor time mark 1484.1 [January 2nd (Terran Calendar)] Once again, the Voidrunners had found themselves acting as freelancers. Their recent individual successes let to an offered commission as professional privateers for the Lor. Which was promptly turned down. The news of the refusal led to their latest job offer from the man who taught Roulette everything he knew about surviving in space. But, they were not alone as the Praetorians had sent two envoys along to the meeting. General Almasi of the Stellar Khanate was one Kinan Khan's many "trusted" officers. The former captain of a band of Khanate Pirates, Star Khan conquered his crew and took the pirate under his control. Breaking and bending the man under his iron fist, one of many. But, after the Incursion as Kinan's heirs began squabbling for control of their father's territory, Amalsi's true loyalties revealed themselves. The former general starting his own campaign to take control of what was left of the Khanate. The Zultasian general was in his late 50's, dark indigo colored skin and greying silver hair that ran down to his waist. His left eye was covered by a cybernetic eyepatch that appeared as if were bolted on to his flesh. His right hand was missing, albeit safely protected behind the cover of the bright yellow Zultasian warsuit that he was wearing. The suit itself was heavily scarred with obvious signs that many pieces had been hastily replaced by other discarded armors. Amalsi's reputation for ruthlessness implied that the Khanate revolutionary would not drastically change the empire's culture. However, his deeds with the Coalition and expressed goals for at least some continued relations with the Lor made him sound almost trustworthy. The meeting place was inside a VIP room of the infamous Irridium Shore. Gerivan's finest casino and home to all manner of the worst dregs the Lor had to offer.
  3. 82 Eridani System Thursday, September 28, 2016 Cavalier flew along side Sea Devil through the inky void, taking in the unfamiliar sights. There was an index full of the various planets, moons, and asteroids of the system, but he had never actually seen them with his eyes. Still, Mentor had recommended this as a nice peaceful system for a trial run. And surveillance. Mentor hadn't been so direct in calling it surveillance. But when Cavalier had asked why he was being asked to take Sea Devil on a ridealong - especially when she hadn't gotten off on good terms with the young Deep One, and her time in space had been far from a walk in the park - Mentor had relented and given him the full scope. "The individuals who tampered with our armor to make the Spectrum Knight design were powerful, intelligent, and given to deception. Although we have examined the altered armor in detail and found no obvious tampering, we know from our own designs that the armor can adapt under proper circumstances. It may be best to see if Ms. Innsmouth has managed to develop new... hidden talents in use of the armor. Talents that were hidden just so they could be... discovered at the right time." A full analysis would be too invasive; however, if Cavalier rode along, Mentor could analyze the code of the Spectrum Knight armor to see if there were any nasty surprises lying in wait. Of course, convincing Sea Devil to go along all on her lonesome might be tricky. Hence why Cavalier had been given dispensation to hire the Voidrunners, with whom Sea Devil had a somewhat better relationship. And hence why he'd had the request approved to let Sea Devil bring along Jessie, who'd also been dragged about half the galaxy alongside her. And hence why he felt like the fifth wheel on this whole trip. But he was the one in charge, so he had to make sure he was everyone's fun uncle rather than their drill sergeant dad. "How do you like the sights?" he asked Sea Devil. "Anything catching your eye?"
  4. December 2015 Voidrunner When the big barracuda-like ship didn't follow them, Aquaria croaked in noisy relief before settling down into her seat. As she did so, she realized just how much her relief was mixed by fear. Despite impossible odds and impossible distances, things had come through for Sea Devil and Singularity, for Aquaria and Jessie. It wouldn't be long now before they were back in the Solar System - a concept she only hazily understood but that she knew meant they were close to Earth, and close to a return to the home she and Jessie had been trying to get back to for weeks. Close to trouble. She was acutely aware, twitching in her seat, of all that had happened - of how her pride had sent them to the stars, of how her anger had gotten that Surfacer killed, and of how all the stars of space had seemed to be against them on their journey. She knew, too, that her life in Freedom City was not her own - she was a symbol of the fear and loathing that Surfacers had for her kind, and a criminal to boot. With all that she'd done, what would happen when she returned? Blackstone again? Perhaps Atlantean custody? Or maybe just exile - a banishment to the waters off Freedom's coast where she was an outcast among all who lived beneath the waves. Turning to her still night-catatonic friend, Aquaria took a long breath and released it as a deep, almost subsonic, bellow. Jessie would be home in the world of her birth, surrounded by her people, away from the world that Aquaria had thrust her into. That was what mattered. Through the blood of sacrifice, I gain power, she thought, closing her big goggle eyes. Through the blood of sacrifice, we are free. Up front, the dinky little Terran comet belt station had just hailed the Voidrunner.
  5. Early December 2015 Wolf 359 Aquaria didn't know much about space - but she could tell the space-house (or space station, as Ruby called it) orbiting the tiny young star was old and busted. The metal plates that made up the walls and the ceiling were obviously corroded, turning green like copper instead of orange like steel around their dark grey edges and the air had the smell of something alien and old burnt away in the ducts, long ago. The humanoids in the station were exotic and strange, even stranger and more exotic than the Surfacers of Freedom City, their hair, clothes, and skin all strange colors and textures - but at least they ate good food, including a delicious flying insect as big as her fist that both she and Bliss had developed a taste for. She spent most of her time in the station's small garden, taking advantage of the high humidity (and even small pond!) to bask in the comforting wetness without her suit. She earned her keep by tending the plants, a skill she'd learned at the home of Jessie's sister and her mate, and did her best to get Jessie to come by and help her. It was less stressful than being on the ship. There had been some sort of dispute over repairs to the Voidrunner (she hadn't really followed the conversation) - and it was a high-stress time on-board for everyone. We just have to make it home, Aquaria assured herself as she ducked down to the bottom of the pond (which was just deep enough for her to completely immerse herself in), the ever-present hum of machinery reminding her that this was no ordinary body of water. And they will have all the gold the ship can carry! Reaching down, she cut a few fronds of pondweed with a knife - the stuff was vile to her, but some of the local people on the station loved it in their stews. In just a day, or less, she'd been assured, the repairs would be done and they'd all go home - but now, everybody pulled their weight, Luckily, she and Jessie were both very strong indeed. - It had been a tough few weeks for the Horizon crew and their Star Knight companion. They'd tracked the fugitives to a remote swampy world, and even found the ion trail of the vessel that had picked them up there, but they'd found no clues about the identity of the vessel they were chasing. Whoever they were, they were fast and good, sticking to high-traffic lanes to blend in (but not the ones still regularly patrolled by the Lor), running their engines so fast they must be risking needing to scrub out their coils, and not staying in any one place long enough to be positively identified by eyewitnesses. If not for the unique energy emitted by Aquaria Innsmouth's suit, which noticeably warped extradimensional space while in hyperdrive, and if not for the further n-dimensional changes caused by the fact that the other passenger was from some other dimension entirely, they'd have lost the scent long ago. But now they'd caught the scent. Station K-7 was old and tired, a collection of habitat domes welded together centuries earlier, with a mostly transient population in the hundreds. It was widely known to be a den of smugglers making the potentially profitable run to Terra now that Lor border patrols weren't what they used to be - or even there at all, most of the time. As the ship approached the station, their sensors jangled with news - their two fugitives were _on that very station_.
  6. A few days after the events of Shore of a Cosmic Ocean Aquaria crouched between the front seats of the shuttlecraft, her forelimbs folded in front of her, arms tucked under her body, and back legs folded forward so far her elbows and knees brushed together. It would have been an uncomfortable position for a Surfacer - but then she wasn't a Surfacer. She wasn't sure what she was, not after three sleeps journey through the cold, endless ocean of space, not with the faces of the creature she'd seen die, no, that she'd helped kill, burning in the back of her mind, not with the sight of the burning Spectrum Knight fortress overrun with those Praetorian thugs curling away like the ever-present shadow of a nightmare. She was still in her armor, largely because their hasty flight had meant she'd left her moisturizer back on the planet where they'd started and the glowing energy field it emitted was all that kept her from burning in the cold dry fake air of the shuttlecraft. There was water, but of course they'd needed that to stay alive. She and Jessie had been able to find food from a panel in the wall, silvery meat packets that tasted dry and squishy to her but that Jessie ate without complaint. In a few days they were going to run out if they weren't careful. Aquaria had seen the inside of the ship, once, when Bie Yie had given her a tour. She knew that the front of the ship was where you steered it and she knew where the food was, and the head, and the places to sleep in. But neither she nor Jessie White had the slightest idea how to fly a spaceship; or what the words and lights that the ship had been saying to them meant. Through the windows, she could see something approaching that Jessie had said earlier was a planet, a brown-green ball that was getting bigger and bigger, like they were going to crash right into it. She closed her eyes and began to croak softly. "Oh Father Dagon, Mother Hydra too, listen to me sing your song-" she opened up her eyes and stared out at the pitiless cold black ocean that surrounded them, then closed them again. "oh-oh so far from you. I know you have a plan for me and a crooked pattern for my life, a pattern you made when I was hatched from my egg. I know that you are trying-" the last word was more of a pained bellow, "trying me. Because I was vain and swam too high, the sun of your wrath burned me. I understand that." She thought of Jessie, still in the back compartment, quiet and still as a barnacle. "But Jessie didn't do anything to deserve punishment. She's tried so hard to be a good person. I should have listened to her from the start..." She swallowed hard, an impressive sight as her massive throat bobbed. "Dagon and Hydra, I know she doesn't believe in you - but please, please, take her into your maw if we die, and remember her when you return in your glory." She began to sing then, the names of her tribe and her friends from Project Freedom, the names of Jessie's 'sister' and her mate, of her friends from the DuTemps Building like Kimber and Indira. The names of people she would never see again. Meanwhile, the autopilot spoke again in a dignified male tenor Galstandard (Lor-Van Standard accent) that neither Aquaria nor Jessie could understand, continuing the conversation it had begun with them two and a half standard days earlier. "Autopilot protocol engaged. Fuel supplies critically low Emergency landing course plotted. Touchdown on planetary surface in five minutes."

    Jailhouse Rock

    GM The Rock Outer Reaches of Contested Space Tuesday, May, 5th, 2015 When the Stellar Khanate initally rose to power, Star Khan needed a prison facility for all criminals too value to simply kill off. Known informally as "The Rock",. the Khanate's best architects created a hidden prison on an asteroid field within the oribt of a resource fueled planet known as Veritas. The prisoners were periodically brought down to a mining colony on the Veritas to participate in forced labor.The prison was designed almost entirely with "re-purposed" technology. Namely Lor technology. Every guard an emotionless Lor Enforcer robot. Only the Wardern and the on site doctor were flesh and blood Zultasians. The various defense measures made the prison impenetrable. With not a single documented escape or break in. The Rock was basically a fortress in of itself. After Star Khan was bested in the Lor-Khan war Veritas broke away from the Khanate. And with it the prison planet. Most Government bodies were led to believe the prison fell out of use. In reality, The Rock became a private enterprise. Storing prisoners for those willing to pay the right price. The Enforcers also acted as bounty hunters collecting prisoners and faking their deaths before transferring them to the Rock for the credit reward. Providing the Warden with a never ending stream of prisoners to act as miners even in the present day. Every criminal worth his salt knew to avoid the Lor's Enforcers. Never knowing if they were the genuine deal or hired goons for someone with enough pull. Unfotunately, Star Shot's crew of intergalactic environmentalists were not criminals proper. When Lor Enforcers boarded their ship they assumed they were being questioned on a routine stop. They were wrong and promptly arrested. In reality, a Lor Diplomat faked footage claiming them to have been poaching rare interplanetary wildlife. All to prevent them from bringing to light evidence of his own illegal gaming. Deep Freeze thought ahead. Sending out a request to an underground crimenet for a cash reward. Anyone who could rescue the captured crew would be generously compensated. Only one crew was reckless enough to actually willingly get captured by the Enforcers. In the middle of being processed for their own suspect criminal history, such as attacking a certain law enforcement officer made of sand, the Voidrunners grumbled as all their equipment was taken by the Enforcers. Bliss and Ruby instantly regretting going along with what could only be described as another plan Roulette purposely designed to tick off his comrades. Elsewhere, in the prison cafeteria, Seika had just accidentally bumped into a bloated round shaped purple skinned extraterrestrial creature with eight arms. The creature's tray fell on the ground and it snarled. Almost instantly the purple creature was joined by three other large creatures. "Stinky two arms!"

  9. Bliss Power Level: 10/11 (153/167 PP) Trade-Offs: None Unspent Power Points: 14 In Brief: Cyber whip Wielding Space Gladiator turned outlaw. Alternate Identity: Identity: Public, more or less. Birthplace: Xu'ul Occupation: Rogue, Gladiator, Fugitive Affiliations: Roulette Family: No longer acknowledged Description: Age: Equivalent to 25 Sol years. Apparent Age: Approximately mid 20s Gender: Female Ethnicity: Xuli'pa Height: 5'11 Weight: Roughly 179 Eyes: Orange/red sclera with hourglass shaped pupils Hair: None, has ridge and semi-tendril like strunctures similar to hair. Bliss a skin color similar to a dark violet or indigo color. Matching her inhuman eyes, which indicates her species having a potential cephlopod-list ancestry. Though it is hard to say. She is long limbed, with an overall short torso. As in line with the females of her species, she is more androgynous than more humanoid races, and in a suit her gender might be difficult to determine. Though she looks more human-like than the rest of her species In part due to the augmentation and alteration she went through during her flight from her homeworld. Her hands and feet are noticable differt, each possessing four digits, with her hands having two fingers with a thumb structure on either side of her hands. What she has for hair, resembles a mohawk, in that it is a crest at the top, and is generally pulled back with a band. Her nose is flat, and a non-prominent feature. Her mouth is filled with teeth that were adapted from the cephlopod-like beak, in a land animal base. Despite the clear ancestry, she is warm blooded, though not mammalian. She is marked, extensively in red 'tattoos' that are also intertwined with what looks like circuitry under her skin that is visible. She favors heavy and obscuring clothing. Oftentime wearing her enviro-suit off ship. As she is largely uncomfortable around others. Power Descriptions: Her powers come from cybernetic and genetic augmentation. Some from her service to her people as a soldier, others in her flight from her homeworld with her 'savior.' There is noticeable subcutaneous circuitry in her form. As well as having enhanced muscle mass and structural reinforcement in her body, primarily with synthetic material woven into her muscles, connective tissues, and reinforcing bone. Her eye's structure in an evolutionary trait, allowing her to see deeper into the infrared. And while her nose is flatter than a humans, she has a complicated internal sinus cavity affording her greater sensitivity. Her tendrils are the primary modification and most visible ability, and while are techno-organic, then seem to use a strange material n them to be able to expand retain their strength. Which is substantial stronger than even her augmented strength. She is able to move them at trans-sonic speed to product loud, concussive sounds and shockwaves from impact. Additionally she has micro-forcefield generators that respond without her awareness, able to intercept attacks with a spray of orange light. She is often in her enviro-suit when off ship, due to ease, and utility. History: Bliss is not her name. She has given up her name. And her people. Not that is was entirely her choice, though it is, in part a consequence of her choices. The Xuli'pa (ZULL-ee-PAH) are a largely isolationist species in Khanate space. They are also a highly patriarchal society due to birthrates favoring a disproporionate amount of females. And while the females of the species are physically far more capable, the males possess a higher degree of abstract thinking, normally. And use pheromones to induce certain control methods in the females of the species. Not all females possess the same level of sensitivity, and Bliss possessed that resistance. A footsoldier in one of the armies of one of the various intercine states in the fractious people she killed several high ranking males in one of the leading religious castes. The reprisals were extensive, and led to her fleeing to one of the few spaceports. Unfortunately, the person willing to accept her on passage out was a scientist of possibly unscrupulous means, who's price was to be able to alter and augment her further. Given she faced a public execution for her crimes, she had little option but the accept such. Sometime afterwards she was left on another planet, Un-Sabnur. It was the best hub that could be found, and while she adjusted to her new state, she did so readily to the gladiatorial pits that exist there. There she had the benefit of her bred ferocity, cybernetic enhancements, and the appeal of a Xuli'pa fighting for pay outside of her homeworld. It was that or be some kept doxy, and such was not a choice in her eyes. The name came there, Bliss, from the tendrils she shot out of her forearms and was able to coil around her opponents, and strike at with force enough to break stone. Her climb was hardly impressive, as she had to struggle her way up, but then she was driven to leave this place as well, and go somewhere else. Somewhere farther away from anywhere a scout or bounty hunter who trafficked with her people would go. After two years, she had climbed enough to go for the champion. Spending all of her earnings on a gamble bet on herself. And along came Stanhze. That gambling, lying, little Zultasian ingrate ruined her bet, and her efforts to get out of the cesspool that was Un-Sabnur. He attempted to rig the championship fight in her favor, and she caught him, while not terribly honorable, this was not something she could accept as it could have stopped her efforts. So she attacked him, and gave chase. While the accusations, and her standing on the planet, and among the gladiators. The pursuit carried through into space itself, as she compounded her crimes with hijacking a smaller corvette to chase after him. Unfortunately a third party intervended, Ruby Voxx. And this resulted in their shared crash onto Slogth. Where hostilities promptly resumed between them all. Fittingly, it was a more hostile external force that merged them together. Well that an a misunderstanding, and Bliss' implied and overt threats, the three banded together under the guise of the Voidrunners, to defend the people of Slogth. Though Bliss would concede that their victory was as much luck as anything else. Though a victory was a victory, and since she was still walking afterwards and not limping, then she could still get farther from her people. Even if she doesn't trust Roulette with her money. Personality & Motivation: She is blunt, direct. And honestly nothing at all like her name (it was likely ironic). She is, however, driven to get further from her people, having no familial ties, certainly not in the way that others would understand. It is fear, but also, just not a desire to go back. Despite what she experienced at the hands of her savior, she still considers him/it's efforts fondly, though... she believes he did more than what he said. Unfortunately she is driven by a lot of fear and uncertainty. Though she is moving forward. And with how she feels after helping others, she might stop running away from her past, and towards her future. Powers & Tactics: She is a brute. Preferring hitting and run tactics. Where possible. Given she can keep distance, she will in the case of prudence, and then close, and try to weaken, distract, in other ways try to erode the standing of her opponents before ducking away, and then re-engaging. Complications: No Place Like Home: Her crimes are great on her home world. Enough to be considered one of the greatest criminals. While she underplays it, it doesn't mean that someone, or something may try to collect that bounty. And that's not counting all of those gladiators. Temper, Temper: Bliss has a short temper, and tents to try not to convince people, but yell at them until they agree with her or stop talking. Sidled Up Ne'er-Do-Wells: She and the rest of the Voidrunners follow morality, not legality. And they will sometimes choose expediency over following all the laws. As such she can't rely on. Senses are a little off: Her sense of smell is hyper acute, compared to other species. So she can be extra susceptible to olfactory base effects. Though she possess no extra sensitivity to Pheromonal control efforts. Additionally her range of vision tends more towards the red. As such she cannot distinguish colors other races can. As such when she conveys sensory information to other people it can be hard for others to grasp.

  10. Ruby Voxx Power Level: 10/11 (163/170 PP) Trade-Offs: Ranged: +2 Attack / -2 Damage Unspent Power Points: 7 Theme: Iron Maiden - The Final Frontier In Brief: Abducted girl from earth who became one of the best Bounty Hunters in the Galaxy Residence: Star cruiser Voidrunner Base of Operations: Mobile Alternate Identity: Ruby Hawkins Identity: Public Birthplace:Birmingham, England, Earth/Terra Occupation: Adventurer / Mercenary / Bounty Hunter Affiliations: Zorla's Hunters (Formally) Voidrunners Family: Adam and Teri Hawkins (Parents) Zorla Voxx (Adopted Mother) Description: Age: 24 (May 12th, 1990) Apparent Age: Early 20s Gender: Female Ethnicity: Caucasian Terran Height: 5'7 Weight: 154 lbs Eyes: Blue Hair: Red Ruby is fairly attractive woman with short red hair and ice blue eyes. Extended periods of time on spaceships since she was a child have left her with exceptionally pale skin. While working Ruby wears her Modified combat armor, which appears to be form fitting black and gold armored suit with a collapsible helm that provides life support and visual augmentations. The armor plates do seems scratched and battle-scared however. Outside of that she wears a old, battered bomber jacket over a pilots flight suit. Power Descriptions: Other than a cybernetic translator augmentation, Rubys natural abilities are in line with a extremely fit human being and someone with a lot of heavy ordanance. History: On Earth, the disappearance of Ruby Hawkins remains a mystery to this day. Reports found that she seemingly vanished from her house in Birmingham without a trace. Although police searched for the girl, it was eventually called off. Her parents left devastated and the files to her case were eventually buried under others, left to be forgotten and presumed to be dead. What actually happened was far stranger. The little girl found herself teleported from her bedroom onboard a strange alien ship. It was not long before she was taken by the ships inhabitants into a cell and kept there. She found herself victim of notorious alien slave trader Tragrosh. Whether she would be sold off to left to rot in the cells, Young Ruby's fate was for a time left uncertain. It was not until a raid on the ship by mercenaries did things turn around. Lead by famed Bounty Hunter Zorla Voxx, they laid seige to the ship and eventually captured the slaver and his crew. They started working on the long process of helping the slaves relocated back to there native planets. Things hit a snag when it was time to send Ruby back home. The computer holding her information was damaged and Ruby was too young to actually identify her planet by name. She was left Stranded and alone in the universe. Taking pity on the her and not liking the alternatives put before her, Zorla elected to take the child with her. In time, she would start to care for Ruby and decided to teach her the ways of the hunt. From learning how to fight and protect herself by Zorla to Ship care and piloting from the engineers to gun use by the mercs, Ruby learned much from them. Life since that point was never dull for Ruby. As she grew older, she began taking part in jobs with the rest of them, from helping bring down dangerous gangs and criminals across star systems to exploring dead planets on the hunt for lost preserver technology. Eventually however she felt like she had to move on and make a name for herself. She parted from Zorlas company. Gifted with a sword, a gun and a spaceship to get her started, Ruby set forth to make a name for herself. With various jobs under her belt, she eventually settled for bounty hunting. Things took an interesting turn when she began the hunt for the bounty of notorious con man and gambler Stahnze Turk. The amount of collateral damage and chaos he caused made her hunt for him much more challenging and more fun. It also lead to the (likely unintentional) side effect of leading her to other high profile bounties which only added to her reputation and her bank account. This continued on and off for some time before finally catching him along with his latest associate Bliss, a disgraced gladiator. Unfortunately that involved crash landing on a backwater planet by the name of Slogth. A misunderstanding involving the mention of her ship the Voidrunner and a case of mistaken identity later she found herself fighting off Nebula crime syndicate alongside the same people she was suppose to capture. She was surprised by how much success they were having. Not many could stand up against such odds and win. Although at one point it seemed that her luck had finally ran out when she was trapped and nearly executed in an ambush, it was the Stahnze's timely intervention that saved her life. It was not long after that Ruby felt like she had to repay the man somehow. After everything was said and done, she ultimately agreed to help Turk and Bliss settle some of the debts and outstanding bounties on their heads. However she quickly found out that even with the small fortune she had acquired over the years, settling his debts would quickly bankrupt her and would run the risk of leaving her stranded on some remote world completely broke. Seeing how well they worked together against the syndicate, she brought up the possibility of running with the Voidrunners name. If she was gonna dig them out of their mess, she was gonna need their help. Personality & Motivation: Ruby is ultimately a bounty hunter for glory and excitement of the hunt, with making money from such a dangerous occupation being a close second. Whether its storming a pirate infested space station or navigating an asteroid field, very little can deter her once she had decided to hunt a target. Despite this reckless attitude, Ruby maintains a enough of a professional attitude to see any job to the end. Unless she feels shes backing something truly reprehensible she will cross the universe to capture quarry. She respects bravery and skill, part of the reason she decided to form the Voidrunners despite any public misgivings she might have for some of its members. Complications: Ammunition: Blasters run dry and one can run out of ammunition unexpectedly. Enemies: Ruby has made various enemies over the years, from two bit space gangs to infamous war criminals that would love nothing more than get revenge on the girl that locked them away. No Disintegrations: Ruby prefers to bring her targets back alive no matter how difficult that would be. She is a Bounty Hunter, not an Assassin.

  11. Player Name: HG Morrison Character Name: Roulette Power Level: 11/12 (181/184PP) Trade-Offs: -4 Attack / +4 Damage, +2 Defense / -2 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 3 In Brief: Conman who shoots optic blasts Alternate Identity: Stahnze Turk Identity: Public Birthplace: Zultas Occupation: Bounty Hunter Affiliations: The Voidrunners (Ruby Voxx and Bliss) Family: Leorio Turk (Father, Deceased), Sattara (Mother, Deceased) Description: Age: 28 (DoB: 1986 [April 22nd]) Gender: Male Ethnicity: Zultasian Height: 6'1 Weight: 205 lbs. Eyes: Blue Hair: Silver and Black Roulette is an purple skinned male with an athletic build. His short spiky silver hair is kept spiked owing to some dedicated time with hair care products. His typical clothing tends to favor exposing his arms to take in light better directly on the skin. On the job, Stahnze wears a custom made white jumpsuit that looks almost like militarized gear. He is known to wear a silver visor with a ruby lens. The visor an attachment system for Stahnze to add a portable rebreather. When either the rebreather or the environmental seal of the space suit are in use it appears much like a jade green transparent layer over his face. Power Descriptions: His Optic Blasts appear as if they were violet colored beams of coherent light. Appearing a bright red for those whom can see the infrared spectrum. And a dark blue for those who see under the ultraviolet spectrum. History: Stahnze Turk was born the son of a Star Knight and a lounge singer. The pair met while Leori (his father) was in the midst of an investigation and Sattara (his mother) was working in a bar in the seediest bit of Khanate claimed space. Leori was a rarity in that not many citizens of the Stellar Khanate were chosen as Star Knights. Few having deemed worthy by Mentor of having the strength of character required. Leori served his time as a Star Knight honorably, earning him about as many fans as could be expected in Kinan Kahn's empire. Which was to say none, at least none that could actively express much support publicly. At least until the Stellar Khanate went to war with the Lor. When Leori left to participate in the war, dying branded a traitor against the Khanate. When Stahnze was fourteen years old, his mother passed away from an untreatable coronary disease. Leaving him with no one left to care for him. Stahnze chose to spend his teenage years traversing the stars. Unfortunately living as a spacer required some sort of financial backing. Lacking a proper source of income he learned to rely on the kindness of strangers. Or rather manipulating said kindness to his own ends. Stahnze became an interstellar confidence man. Funding his travels by tricking others out of their hard earned gains. Stahnze actually began to get a taste for the luxurious as he began to accrue wealth. In response to his burgeoning craving of the high life his crimes began to get more extravagant attracting more unwanted attention his way. Such attention lead to Stahnze being captured by members of the Stellar Khanate crime syndicate as retribution for scamming one of their members out of a substantial sum. The crime syndicate handed Stahne over over to an underground military research team that worked directly for Star Kahn. Their research seeking to create living weapons for the glory of the Khanate. The researchers thoroughly modified and experimented on Stahnze. With tremendous results as Stahnze became able to metabolize photons around him into coherent beams of concussive force fired out of his eyes. Before any further research could be conducted on the full capability of his powers, Stahnze used his new ability to blast his way out of the facility. Leaving the entire location in shambles, with the research data fully destroyed. As a free man again, Stahnze resumed pulling off massive confidence jobs. Tricking criminal and lawman alike out of many a profit. For as good as he was at acquiring money with his scams, Stahnze was equally lacking in business savvy. Accruing a massive debt with some bad investments through various criminal contacts. His face became a common sight on many a bounty poster soon after. Bounty hunters were usually caught off guard by proper misdirection or a well placed optic blast. To Stahnze's credit, he never harmed a civilian while on the run. There was definite amounts of collateral damage as he destroyed the environment all willy nilly to escape capture. But, Stahnze kept enough control to avoid catching anyone he wasn't targeting in the crossfire. It became so costly to chase after him that Bounty hunters began to actively avoid going after Stahnze's bounty. With the notable exception of a bounty hunter by the name of Ruby Voxx. Stahnze considered her the most relentless bounty hunter to chase him down. If he lingered for too long, she would be hot on his heels soon after. Keeping the conman looking over his shoulder everywhere he went. This dichotomy continued on for years. Everything changing when Stahnze went to the planet Un-Sabnur. Stahnze lost a card game in a small bar and had to rely on his charm to avoid being bifurcated after admitting he did not have the money to pay the amount he owed. Ranark the winner of the game agreed not to kill Stahnze. Stahnze just had to return the payment in triplicate. With Ranark having already chosen the means for Stahnze to gain the money. Ranark was a former gladiator in the planet's famed coliseum. After retiring he became the cruel overseer of the current crop of gladiators on the planet. Seeking to earn a big pay day, he wanted Stahnze to drug the current gladiatorial champion's latest challenger. In all betting pools Bliss, the current champion, was the massive underdog going into the fight. So a bet in support of Bliss would have paid substantially had she won the fight. Rather than leave things up to chance, Ranark wanted Stahnze to provide him a guarantee. Before Stahnze could accomplish the poisoning he was caught in the act by Bliss. Barely managing to escape capture he made a run for it in the process alerting more of the gladiators of the commotion. Bliss was accused as Stahnze's co-conspirator by Ranark who spun the story around to cover himself. Disgraced gladiator Bliss sought to clear her name, escaping in the heat of night rather than face an undeserved punishment. Her plan to catch Stahnze and beat a confession out of him. While Bliss was chasing Stahnze through Space, so too was Ruby Voxx in hot pursuit of the two "partners in crime." A pursuit which ended with all of them crash landing on a remote planet called Slogth in the rim of Lor and Stellar Khanate territory. Though Voxx had technically caught her quarry upon landing, it left the three stranded on a planet they knew nothing about. The locals had actually intended on hiring a trio of famed warriors for hire named the Voidwalkers to defend them against the Nebula crime syndicate whom wanted to invade the village for its herbs that could be used to manufacture a new drug. Unbeknownst to the locals the Voidwalkers were merely characters in an old Earth sci fi show that had somehow streamed on to their planet. When Ruby Voxx informed them that her ship was called the Voidrunner, the locals jumped to the conclusion that these three were apart of the Voidwalkers. It didn't hurt that Stahnze looked like one of the cast members from the show whose character was known as Roulette. Compounded further by his willingness to propagate the lie. All three of them found it prudent to not get slaughtered by the invading force, so they played along. Bliss, Roulette, and Ruby Voxx worked together actually managing to fend off the criminal syndicate's invasion. Surviving with some parts ingenuity and more parts luck. Roulette actually rather enjoyed doing the right thing for once, and conceded with Bliss's request (threatening glare) that they refuse the payment for protecting the village. Voxx then put forward the idea that they not let the teamwork end there, and officially take upon the Voidwalkers banner. With Voxx agreeing to "handle" the issue of their prior crimes and bounties, so long as they didn't betray her in the future. And thus the Voidwalkers were formed Personality & Motivation: Roulette has spent most his life as an arrogant self-serving jerk. The only thing that has really changed is he's a bit less self serving. Roulette abhors violence, claiming it makes him look unprofessional and will always attempt to talk his way out of a fight if he can. A consummate liar preferring to use his silver tongue rather than a weapon. His more negative qualities are hidden behind a thin veneer of politeness. But, Roulette consciously chooses proper etiquette solely when it suits whatever his current needs. Preferring to rudely unnerve those around him. However, Roulette is not without his positive traits. He enjoys the feeling that comes from helping people, even if he'll never admit it. He has a massive soft spot for children. To the point that all one needs to do is tell them a child would be in danger and he's willing to be a hand. Despite his willingness to manipulate even his own teammates, there is a burgeoning sense of loyalty growing towards them. Powers & Tactics: Roulette's body is able to metabolize ambient energy from photons found in the environment around him. He is then able to release that energy in a coherent beam of light. The beam has no apparent heat or recoil to it relying on concussive force instead. The more power put into a beam the more concentration it takes to sustain, making more powerful blasts difficult to aim. Roulette prefers to avoid combat whenever possible. Relying on his wits and sharp tongue to manipulate foes. Feeling that a good con never need raise his hands. Acting as support for his teammates on the defensive instead. If pushed to the offensive Roulette eschews finesse for fire superiority to end things as quickly as possible. His Optic Blasts operate on principles similar to lasers. Making it possible for Roulette to refract the beam, fire it off with blinding speed, as well as taking advantage of reflective surfaces to hit multiple foes or attack from unexpected angles. Complications: Body Heat: While not running any hotter than normal, his body emits a far larger heat signature than normal. This can lead to issues in hiding from those able to track or distinguish heat signatures. Or worse heat seeking weaponry. Enemies: In Roulette's less than stellar days he accrued a large number of enemies. Even with his debts settled by Ruby Voxx, many of them still feel as if they have a reason to come after his head. Look where you're pointing that thing: Prolonged use of his powers has begun to erode Roulette's vision. If a GM feels like temporarily blinding him or sticking the Uncontrolled flaw on his optic blasts during a "blind" episode it would make sense. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Roulette's optic blasts take on many of the properties of lasers. Including being able to bounce of reflective surfaces. Unfortunately, this can be used against him with his own blasts being refracted or reflected in a direction he doesn't want if an opponent is prepared to deal with him. Power Loss: When away from a light source for too long, Roulette can use up his reserves of solar and ambient energy with repeated firings of his optic blasts. Leaving him with a lack available access to his energy source for a recharge. Furthermore, being low on his energy reserves can also make those last few shots an exhausting affair. Rose Tinted Glasses: Roulette is color blind. He sees everything only in shades of red.
