"Flyboy" Horace Henderson
Back in his prime, Horace was both one of the most renowned pilots in the Confederation as well as competing in the Intergalactic Wrestling Federation, where he won the Heavyweight Championship an unprecedented five times; both of these facts being things he would never allow anyone else to forget. After the Third Intergalactic War, Horace married his fellow Meowing Commando, Minerva, and both went on to serve with the CH-13. Now retired, the two run a very successful chain of pizza and donut restaurants. They have one child, a daughter named Charlie, who now serves aboard the CH-7.
Captain of the FSS-CH9, Amaya Solace is the daughter of a high-ranking admiral from the Felinius Kingdom and the youngest person ever appointed captain of a Felinoid Smartship. Hard-nosed and tough as nails, she constantly struggles to prove herself and her team among the Squadron forces, many of whom assume she received her post through nepotism. Despite the general mistrust of her throughout the squadron, she has a reputation for being a fierce fighter, albeit with a history of insubordination and inability to follow orders. Prior to her commission as captain, she served with the CH-13. Extended Bio
Chaste’s exact origin is unknown. While she is clearly a Felinoid, she was discovered living alone in the wild jungles of Kaneon-9 by the crew of the FSS-CH13. She eventually was given a special appointment to the Cosmic Hellcats forces by Admiral Otto Solace and now serves as Armsmaster aboard the FSS-CH9. Perhaps the most feared combatant in the Squadron, Chaste has a no-nonsense “shoot first and let Ceiling Cat sort them out” attitude. While on the surface she is distant and mean-spirited towards her fellow shipmates, she is extremely protective of them and considers them her family – the only family she has ever known. Extended Bio
Jonas Grendel II
Grendel is the son of the most decorated hero in the history of the Confederation. Long neglected and considered a disappointment by his legendary father, Grendel set out to prove himself by becoming a hero in his own right, first with the Meowing Commandos and later with the CH-13. Grendel is the consumate soldier, as serious and hard on his fellow Hellcats as his father was on him. He is currently a Colonel in the Transuniversal Intergalactic Tranquility Squadron and the right hand of Admiral Kitty. Unlike most felinoids, who have the species designation felinoid sapien catus, Grendel is felinoid panthera leo, making him somewhat larger and more imposing than most felinoids.
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.
At age seventeen, Minerva won the prestigious beauty title of Miss Felinius and went on to win runner-up in the Miss Cosmos contest, losing the title to Miss Rigel. Believing the contest to be rigged by the then cosmos-controlling forces of the Rigel Empire, Minerva joined the Rebellion and fought as a member of the Meowing Commandos. Although she never managed to prove that the Miss Cosmos competition was fixed, she did help the Rebellion win the war and went on to serve with the CH-13 afterwards. Today, she is married to her fellow Commando, Horace and the two have retired from active military duty to run a chain of pizza and donut restaurants. The couple has one daughter, Charlie, who currently serves aboard the CH-7.
Nikki "Shipwrecks" Kitai
Nicolette Kitai served as a cadet amongst the legendary CH-13 along with Amaya and Chaste. While generally considered to be a less than effective soldier, she, along with the other cadets, was instrumental in the defeat of legendary space pirate Gorthon Z’Rxnrz. When Amaya was given her own command, the Squadron decided not to transfer Nikki along with Chaste and Amaya to the CH-9 because they considered her lesbian crush on Amaya to be a liability. Instead she was transferred to the CH-7, which she eventually became captain of, primarily through the mysterious deaths of her crewmates until she was the ranking officer. Because of her constant misfortune, other members of the Squadron often derisively refer to her as “Shipwrecks.”
Roger Glover was a longstanding member of the legendary SNAT: CH-13, having joined the unit, then officially codenamed the “Meowing Commandos,” during the Third Intergalactic War. When the CH-13 was retired, he was reassigned to finish out the end of his active duty career under the command of his former cadet, Nikki Kitai, aboard the CH-7. The Squadron was hoping that he’d be able to keep an eye on her and help protect the team. Unfortunately, Glover was killed in a surprise pirate attack on his ship a mere three weeks before he was scheduled to retire.
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.

When did Amaya’s clothes change color?
When did Amaya’s clothes change color?
my apologies, I double clicked the submit button.
About the same time Katt’s did.
The light can do weird things in these ancient ruined temples. And colorists are particularly fallible when lazy artists who shall remain nameless don’t get them the linework in time.
Yeah, I actually noticed that I had reversed the colors on their uniforms when I was doing the next strip. If only we were Marvel Comics, then we could award “No-Prizes” for discovery. Oh well.
you never are too old!
