Right I should post this here as well, since everyone else is posting new character sheets here :D

Basics

Name: Randa "Runeblade" Riven
Age: 30+
Place of Birth: Space Station 73
Gender: Female
Species/Racial Origin: Human
Social Class/Community Status: Warrior
Language: Galactic
Family/Friends/Pets/Etc: All dead

Physical Description

Height: Tall (6ft?)
Weight: Below Average for height
Hair: Short, white
Eyes: Brown
Limb Dexterity: Right
Detailed Physical Description: Riven was brought up in a unique combination of both Zero-G and high gravity environments provided by the space station she grew up in. This gave her unusually high strength for her slender body build that a zero-g environment also provides.
Typical Clothing/Equipment: Leather vest and white skirt. Carries the hilt of a massive Zoltan Runeblade. It still crackles with energy.

Personality/Attributes

Personality/Attitude: Used to be a braggart back home but now she tends to keep to herself. Look down upon those who flee from combat.
Skills/Talents: Zero-G Combat
Favourites/Likes: Low gravity environments
Most Hated/Dislikes: Cowardice
Goals/Ambitions: To get her blade restored and to hunt down those who destroyed her home
Strengths: Able to do heavy lifting, can work in Zero-G proficiently
Weaknesses: Rather sluggish in normal gravity
Fears: Dying from non-combat-related issues.
Hobbies/Interests: Keeping track of her kills
Regular Routine: Wakes up, suits up, meditates on the outer hull or practises her sword skills.
Philosophy of Life: Fight, win, prevail. Survive and become stronger.
Attitude Toward Death: Death is just a journey to a greater battle in the universe.
Religion/Beliefs: Believes in ancient warrior gods that are waging a constant war somewhere beyond the universe itself. Make the most of your skills for they'll all be needed.
Fetishes/Strange Behaviors: Only is interested in people who can beat her in combat.
Education/Special Training: Warrior training in both high and low gravity scenarios. Can also operate basic subsystems on a ship.
Place/Type of Residence: Transitional
Occupation: Wandering Mercenary
Place of Work: Between jobs, probably drinking at a bar.
Past Occupations: Bodyguard for both politicians and pirates

Skill Sheet

Inteligence: 0 (+5 Base) Not the brightest out there.
Wisdom: 5 (+5 Base) Knowledge is not important. It's how you apply it in battle
Charisma: 3 (+5 Base) Considering where she's from, she had some skills in how to exaggerate her claims and to look intimidating towards others.
Dexterity: 6 (+5 Base) Zero-g requires some precision work. But the high gravity makes her slower
Strength: 10 (+5 Base) Naturally, high strength from the high gravity
Constitution: 6 (+5 Base) More resilient from high gravity, but zero-g makes her less durable.

---------------

She's sort of like a Space Viking who's lost her home. Everyone else died and went to Valhalla while she's stuck around and alive. Since the attack was so sudden and dishonourable to her culture, she wants revenge or at least die trying to get it on the path.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kik was an incredible student at the university. After getting in and spending 6 terms on blood money, he graduated early with a degree in advanced mental arts. After learning all he could at the university, Kik decided he needed to go somewhere foreign and new to sate his thirst for knowledge. After stealing the thoughts of a pilot on his way to a remote moon colony, Kik mind controlled him to stow away and get a ride. He then placed thoughts in the heads of moon colony officials, allowing him to gain his position as researcher and medic. Kik had almost become bored with his job, but a scouting and research mission landed on his very colony. He wondered if he could join...

Just a heads-up. I live in a country with deadly spiders, storms and other wildlife and with people who's attitude is "Who cares" and "bugger off mate."

So when a small storm rolls along and one of our trees decides they've had a gutful of standing still for decades and decides to shed a few branches on the power lines... well...

Yeah I might not have power for the weekend and access to Skype or internet. "Oh right, we cleared up most of the branches. I mean there's still a big tree there and blocking part of the road but hey, at least we got the streetlights back. Check back in tomorrow afternoon. Have a nice evening in total darkness" is the statement I would give if I was in charge of the company responsible to preventing angry mobs from buying torches and pitchforks and going medieval on their head office.

Fun times.
