When the entire team was imprisoned by a group of Rigellians on the desolate planet U’ta, Sarah reprogrammed a Rigellian battledroid and used it to help the team escape. Renaming him Andrew, they welcomed him aboard the crew. Like all battledroids, Andrew lacks voice capability. However, unlike the others, he has developed an extensive emotional and moral compass due to both his reprogramming and his time with the Hellcats. He is completely loyal and devoted to the team, even though he often feels neglected and overlooked by them. He has become particularly fond of Damsel and somewhat antagonistic to Fluffy.
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.

Major Kennedy is the commander of IJA-µ. He is a charming, goodlooking and notorious womanizer. He is confident and egotistical to the point that it tends to interfere with his military duties, however, the unit is effective enough that for the most part the Squadron gives him lattitude. Kennedy is also somewhat chauvinistic and tends to overlook the accomplishments and abilities of female officers, preferring instead to flirt with them. The other members of the IJA-µ tend to disregard Kennedy’s command status, however he is generally too self-involved to notice.
Pendergrass is the most laid-back and easy-going member of the IJA-µ and the jokester of the group. While he is a gifted and accomplished pilot and soldier, he has something of an aversion to violence and prefers to settle matters peacefully if at all possible. He loves practical jokes and his favorite target is Sarge, mostly because he knows that Roosevelt lacks a sense of humor. Pendergrass is a vegetarian and spends most of his downtime playing videogames and eating junk food.
Of all the crew of the FSS-CH9, Sarah probably wants to be there the least. A brilliant scientist and leading authority on rocket science and physics, her intelligence and technical ability are rivaled only by her libido and hedonistic nature. Born a flower child to hippie parents, she finds herself constantly torn between the worlds of free-love and semi-conductor mechanics. While she is well respected in her field and throughout the Kingdom for her brilliance, her carefree attitude and lack of discretion landed her a court martial and got her “sentenced” to active duty with the Hellcats. While she loves her crewmates, she’d greatly prefer life on firm land to the isolation of deep space. Extended Bio
