Charlemagne Henderson is the only daughter of Horace and Minerva Henderson, both members of the legendary CH-13. Charlie had a very versatile background, growing up surrounded not only by her parents military colleagues, but also her father's professional wrestling friends and her mother's beauty pageant competitors. At 18 she joined "the family business" and breezed through the academy with relative ease. Being naturally gifted as a combatant and having a legacy pedigree of sorts, she failed to apply herself greatly while at the Academy and upon graduation had no real specialty. As such she was stationed with the CH-7, where she essentially serves as Weapons Master. As the unit seldom sees any actual action, the post has very little purpose, which is a constant source of frustration for Charlie.
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. 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.
