Bellatrix Joanna Miranda Huffington-Jones was the youngest child (and only daughter) amongst a wealthy family of 14 sons. While she’s a tom-boy at heart, she was raised in an environment where she was taught to behave in a perfectly ladylike manner. While she grew up with all the luxuries a felinoid could ask for she yearned for adventure and much to her parents dismay, she enrolled in the Academy For Science Soldiers on her 17th birthday with hopes of being a Cosmic Hellcat like her childhood friend and idol, Damsel Reed, whom she thinks of as an older sister. She is assigned to the CH-1 as pilot.
As pilot of the FSS-CH9, Damsel is one of the greatest pilots in the entire Squadron. Born to a wealthy family and living a life of relative luxury and privilege, Damsel found herself drawn to a greater calling. She ran away from home and enrolled in the Academy for Science Soldiers and eventually was made a Cosmic Hellcat. Despite her stong sense of duty and love of adventure, Damsel is still a socialite princess at heart. She is as much intrigued by the promise of adventure that being a Hellcat provides, as she is to the nobility and honor it brings. Extended Bio
Fluffy is the Artificial Intelligence that controls the shipboard computer of the FSS-CH9. Like all felinoid smartships, the neural network that forms his AI is sentient and capable of independent thought, learning and emotion. This design is intended to make the smartship feel a kinship with the team by causing it to consider itself a member of the team. However, while most smartships become attached and protective of their crew, the constant danger that the CH-9 tends to face through the team’s relative inexperience and general recklessness has caused Fluffy to treat them with some amount of disdain. In particular, he is rather antagonistic of Damsel and Sarah, whom (as pilot and engineer) he blames for the majority of his perils, and Andrew, whom he considers to be an inferior artificial intelligence.
Katty Tuesday was an intelligent and pretty but naive girl when she enrolled in the Academy for Science Soldiers. There she met her roommates and best friends, Amaya Solace and Nikki Kitai as well as her boyfriend Marko Cain and another good friend Tybalt Prince. After a fight between Tybalt and Marko where Tybalt revealed his long time crush on Katt and Marko revealed that he was... a creep... Katt became disillusioned with the Cosmic Hellcats and dropped out of school. She developed a harder edged personality and moved to Epsilon City on Kaneon-3 where she began working as an exotic dancer until she met and fell in love with private detective and bounty hunter, Yellow Dawg. The two now work together as partners.
One of the the greatest heroes of the Rebellion, during the Third Intergalactic War, Sgt. Kitty Hawk was instrumental in the success of the Battle of B’ll’R'un-Prime, the turning point of the war. After the war, the Meowing Commandos became an officially sanctioned Science Ninja Action Team and Kitty was given the command. In her youth she was quite unorthodox in her methods, though very effective and as such, while she seldom admits it, feels an affinity for Amaya, today. Over the years, she rose through Squadron Ranks and is now an Admiral and the ranking commander of all SNAT forces.
In high school, Sven was a gifted athlete and captain of every sporting team. He was recruited by several universities on athletic scholarships but had trouble passing entrance interviews for any of them as he had no actual plans or ideas of what to do with his life post high-school. Ultimately to avoid making a decision he followed his twin sister, Dana into the Academy for Science Soldiers. Sven graduated squarely in the middle of his class, without actually managing to excel at anything in particular. After graduation he was assigned to the CH-1 where technically, he serves as engineer, but he has little interest in much more than playing video games and trying to catch the occasional glimpse of his female crew mates naked.
Tybalt Prince served as a cadet amongst the legendary CH-13 along with Amaya and Chaste. A stickler for the rules, he garnered something of a reputation as a teachers pet and a stick in the mud. These assessments were fair. Tybalt went on to graduate at the top of his class and was quickly promoted through the ranks due to his exemplary service and was eventually given command of his own smartship, the FSS-CH1. Col. Grendel continues to respect Tybalt’s organization, dedication and adherence to policy and as such has allowed him to maintain a crew of rookies, just out of the academy in the hopes that he can turn them into perfect soldiers. The rookies, for their part have lost some respect for Tybalt after seeing the behavior of other crews, most specifically the CH-9.
Vixen grew up as an orphan, being shunted from one foster home, orphanage, or juvenile detention center to another, when she wasn’t running away and getting into trouble with the law. At 15 after being arrested for her part in a in a string of hovercar thefts, the repeat offender was given a choice by the magistrate. She could be sentenced to adult prison or she could enroll in the Academy for Science Soldiers in one last attempt to make something of herself. The discipline of the military seemed to agree with her, as she was able to channel her rage constructively. She graduated with honors from the Academy and was assigned to the CH-1 where she acts as first mate and weapons master.
Yellow Dawg is a lifelong native of Epsilon City, the dirtiest, toughest, meanest, most corrupt place in the universe, and if you say any different, someone will stab you. Despite being raised amidst constant corruption, Dawg has an intense (yet cynical) system of ethics and code of honor and has become a bounty hunter and private investigator with a soft spot for hard luck cases. While he is not above working outside the law, he does attempt to not disregard it without good reason. He is in love with Katt Tuesday, a former Cosmic Hellcat and former stripper that he saved when she was attacked in a bar. He has since made Katt his partner and the two still work and live together in Epsilon City.
