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.

As pilot of the FSS-CH9, Damsel is one of the greatest pilots in the entire Squadron. Born to a wealthy family and living a life of relative luxury and privilege, Damsel found herself drawn to a greater calling. She ran away from home and enrolled in the Academy for Science Soldiers and eventually was made a Cosmic Hellcat. Despite her stong sense of duty and love of adventure, Damsel is still a socialite princess at heart. She is as much intrigued by the promise of adventure that being a Hellcat provides, as she is to the nobility and honor it brings. Extended Bio
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.
An extremely gifted scientist and inventor, Riley is both the most intelligent among the IJA-µ and the only female. Between these two details, she frequently finds herself left out of field missions and delegated to a support role, something she deeply resents. As such, she takes any opportunity she can to become involved in active combat with hostiles. She is very close with Sarah Prankha, whom, despite the fact that the latter frequently corrals her into dangerous situations on “nights out on the town,” she considers her best friend (mostly due to a lack of other options).
With the rank of Sergeant Major, the gruff and irritable Roosevelt (commonly called Sarge) is technically the lowest ranking officer (and the only non-commissioned one) in the IJA-µ, but in practice he essentially serves as their leader due to Kennedy’s general unreliability. Pendergrass and Riley respect his capabilities and experience despite their technically outranking him, while Kennedy doesn’t realize that the others look to Sarge instead of him for guidance. He also serves the rank of Sergeant-at-arms to Colonel Goose and she considers him a trusted advisor, generally addressing him in briefings on equal (or greater) terms that Kennedy, who is technically in charge of the TEDD-IJAµ.
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
