1. Where is your hero from?


 The Planet of Lyanka, or Lyanka I in proper formatting, it orbited an isolated star of the same name, before said star went supernova during the 2000 years of suspended animation.


2. How would your hero physically describe him/herself? Is this different from how others would?


For a Lyankan? Somewhat trained, but not too physically imposing. Not especially beautiful, but not ugly either. Generally, fairly average for a soldier. Any more culturally diverse place? She stands out, due to being a lot taller and muscular than most, at around 8 ft. it is pretty easy to look rather intimidating. It is hard for people to describe her face however, since she tends to keep on her helmet whenever possible.


3. Does your hero have distinguishing speech characteristics or recurring mannerisms?


Apart from still being used to military terminology, no.


4. What is your hero's motivation?


To continue what she was trained to do, protect those around her. Whether they be her fellow praetorians, or the innocent population of the galaxy. She also strives to learn about the fate of her people after the star of Lyanka went supernova.


5. What are your hero's greatest strengths and weaknesses?


Barrier is physically imposing, able to defend herself, as well as her allies, against most direct damage. However, she is fairly slow and somebody that does not use classical attacks could easily outmaneuver her abilities.


6. What does your hero love? What does your hero hate?


Barrier loves the feeling of helping people, but also that of a quiet day spent relaxing. While she does follow Lyankan military philosophy and not act offensively if somehow possible, she also enjoys a good fight. Meanwhile, she dislikes feeling unable to do anything, especially if somebody is in danger. She also dislikes people acting charging into combat without proper planning, showing off, and generally acting brashly.


7. How would you describe your character's mental and emotional state?


All in all, Barrier is mentally stable. However, like the other Praetorians she has lost everything she knew, even her planet, which does leave a lot of scars.


8. What does your hero fear the most?


Being unable to defend those around her like when the Praetorians got captured by the curator and she was in the medbay unconscious.


9. What is your character's greatest ambition?


Barrier’s greatest ambition is to learn what happened of her people, their history after the war with the communion, and what has become of them nowadays.


10. How does your hero feel about the state of the world and his/her place in it?


Barrier has not been back awake for long, and is still getting used to the galaxy two millennia after everything she knew. So far, her experiences have been rather positive, having seen many people work together.


11. Does your hero have any prejudices? How does he/she get along with others?


Barrier has some prejudices towards people who use mind reading, mind control and similar powers, both since they are one of her weaknesses and since they blur the lines between friend and foe for everyone involved.


12. Where do your heroes loyalties lie? In what order?


Barrier’s only true loyalties lie with the Praetorians, the only thing she still knows for sure. She will chase any information about Lyanka she can find, but it is the Praetorians that she will return to afterwards.


13. Does your hero have a lover or partner? How do they feel about the hero now?


Barrier has not had a lover in over 2050 years, her last love was during her time at the academy.


14. Does your hero have a family? What is the relationship there like?


She only grew up with a father, who died not long after she joined the praetorians.


15. How would the people closest to your hero describe him or her?


A big warrior with a big shield, always on the lookout and making sure those around her stay safe.


16. Is your hero a role model?


Probably. She is fairly heroic in what she does, but then again, most people are a lot more in danger when they try doing what she does.


17. How spiritual is your hero? Does your hero follow a relgious tradition?


Barrier follows the ancient Lyankan traditions of worshipping the spirits of the fallen, from whom her shield draws most of it’s power. This makes her rather spiritual, and she is open about this.


18. Is your hero part of a team, or would he/she like to be? Why?


Barrier is part of the praetorians and has been for over 2040 years. She has seen many join, many leave, and many die.


19. How does your hero feel about the place of metahumans and aliens on Earth?


Barrier barely even knows of earth. As for the galaxy as a whole? As somebody that stands out in most places, she is used to being treated differently than others, and wishes everybody would just treat people well, regardless of their origin.


20. If you could give one piece of advice to your hero, what would it be?


Calm down, relax, and then take your time to get accustomed to the galaxy as it is now.
