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.
Easily the most decorated soldier of all time in the entire Squadron, Pops is the only man to have served in all three Intergalactic Wars. A member of the legendary military Grendel family, Jonas enlisted in the armed forces at the age of four to fight in the first Intergalactic War. During the Second Intergalactic War, he became known by the codename Captain Felinius, an identity that he continued to use throughout the Third Intergalactic War and for years after. As Captain Felinius, Pops was granted complete autonomy by the Squadron and essentially served as a one-man unit, however he was often assisted (sometimes reluctantly) by the CH-13. Unlike most felinoids who have the species designation felinoid sapien catus, Pops is felinoid panthera leo, making him somewhat larger and more imposing than most felinoids (at least until he became extremely old).
Dominique Jackson was a cadet in the same class as Amaya and Nikki, but at the time was assigned to the CH-47. An exceptionally gifted student, she rose to the top of the class and was a favorite among her professors, which naturally set her up as a rival to several other students, many of whom would go on to become her fellow smartship captains. This rivalry remains to this day, but Dominique considers herself somewhat above it. This aloof attitude only serves to fuel the jealousy however. Especially with Nikki Kitai of the the CH-7.
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.
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.
Sahara is a respected elder statesman amongst the STARfoxes, having risen to the rank of Captain. While, the STARfoxes operate more autonomously than units like the Hellcats, Sahara is experienced enough that her colleagues often look to her for guidance and she is frequently given command when group missions are required and is frequently given recruits to instruct. Sahara is confident and commanding and takes her position seriously. Her focus weapon is a bo-staff.
Trix is the newest recruit to the Special Task and Rescue forces and assigned to shadow Sahara until she is ready to patrol on her own. While she is very inexperience at the use of her powers, she is extremely anxious to prove herself, not only amongst the STARfoxes, but also to friends and classmates of hers from before she was recruited. Unfortunately, she sometimes embarrasses herself through misuse of her abilities due to her inexperience. Trix grew up as a wallflower and enjoys the power and fame that comes with her position and her first successful use of her powers was to increase her own bustline. Her focus weapon is a sword.
