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
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.
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
