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
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.
Marko Cain was a cadet in the same class as Amaya Solace and Nikki Kitai. For a time he dated Katt Tuesday and shared a rivalry with Tybalt Prince who also vied for their affections. He is something of a mischievous bad boy with a large ego, but upon graduating managed to be given the command of a Binary Tactical Cosmic Hellcats unit, the CH-42, along side is best friend, Chip Matthews.
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.”
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.
