This Character is a work in progress, so there are holes in the story that you can help fill in.
Captain Bantageaux, an Apsu pilot in the service of the Co'ir Transport Company; Bah'ni Bantageaux is renowned across the Bythos as one of the best pilots there is. Trained in a Science Guild Academy, her knowledge of the stars is bewildering. Fresh out of the Academy she took a post on the freight ship TK1021 as a Lt Navigator. Her primary function being to take the navigators position on the bridge when the primary navigator was off duty. One night during her off duty time, the ship was attacked by pirates. During the siege the captain ordered the young Lt to go to the data storage area and lock down the navigational files. Here she encountered an unusual looking pirate. The Apsu man was short, a bit chubby, and dressed more like a Cipa'ci gaffler than a pirate. The awkward man, in an oddly polite manner asks the Lt. Bantageaux to gather the NAV data for him. Lt. Bantageaux refused, and attacks the odd little man; she had the man subdued in short order but one of his cohorts intervened and in the ensuing scuffle much of the Data stores were destroyed in a small explosion that left a bit of debris lodged in Lt. Bantageaux's skull. Hours pass before her body was found, while the rest of the crew was busy fighting the pirates. In that time, her wound had already begun to heal, her body absorbing part of the media. In a highly unusual result, the nanobots in her blood didn't reject the foreign material, but instead fusing the debris to her skull and wrapping the brain tissue about it.
CREW MEMBERS: All but one member of the crew were raised within the company; all but one are Academy graduates, trained to perform the duties they perform on the Bythos Blitzer.
1st Officer: Apsu man, a highly talented pilot in his own right, he is totally devoted to his closet friend, and mentor Captain Bantageaux. A decorated officer he is frequently chided for refusing to leave Bantageaux’s command. “He had a promising career until he went to work for Bantageaux.
Science Officer/ Medic: Syk’a rii male, brother of Security Officer; with a crew of mostly Apsu and Syk’arans his medical duties are minimal. So he spends most of his time working on the various research projects and assisting his sister maintaining the ships armament.
Chief Engineer: Shalmana Natra: A Ravus female, raised at a LS Academy, in a mostly Apsu environment. She is, like most Ravus, incredibly intelligent, and intensely curious. Her curiosity is mostly directed at her Apsu shipmates who she finds fascinating. One of her ongoing pet projects it to develop a device that will allow her to see to see full spectrum of colors as seen by most other species. She feels it will allow her to achieve a better understanding of their wide range of emotions. Ravus are color blind, and are in general very mild in nature though some of them can become quite inflamed when attempting to solve a problem.
Asst. Engineer/ Programmer: Apsu man (perhaps gay) A brilliant programmer, he is the first to crack the firmware developed by Nathaniel to hack into Co’ir and Cipa’ci ship’s systems. He is also a fierce warrior, who fights with the reckless abandon of a savage warrior.
Security Officer: Syk’a rii female, sister of Science Officer; with the assistance of her brother, she has equipped the Bythos Blitzer with the galaxies most potent array of on ship weaponry. Most Co’ir ships have only a few standard cannons that fire projectile ordinance; metal cased explosives.
Guard 1: A Priscan man, one of the few working for Co’ir. Most work for Priscan concerns, even after attending LS Academies. Often working to procure weapons for the crews use on special missions.
Guard 2: An Apsu man, weapons and explosives expert he is the primary tactician for off ship operations.
Navigator/ Cook: Apsu man, probably the least qualified member of the crew, he is not much of a navigator, but Capt. Bantageaux doesn’t need one. He is however an excellent cook, which is why he is on the ship.
Chief Gaffler/ Quarter Master; Apsu man, the oldest member of the crew, and the defacto conscious of the group, he was a member of Bah’ni’s original crew that ventured beyond the Galaxies Edge. Despite his job, the Captain frequently goes to him for advice when making tuff decisions. His four sons serve as gaffler’s under her.
Gaffler 1: The oldest son, loyal to his father to a fault, he could be a pilot on another ship, and on occasion he is allowed a duty shift on the bridge.
Gaffler 2: The second son, gruff in demeanor, he does his job, but never lets anyone go without knowing how much he hates it. He is a constant complainer, but he works just as hard, if not harder than anyone else on the ship. He is the handy sort and often assists the engineers with repairs, which he also complains about.
Gaffler 3: The 3rd son, he has a different mother than his brothers. He is the product of a liaison in the stars. He did not attend a LS Academy, he serves at the discretion of the captain, but he is a brilliant, self-taught programmer and engineer who only carries the title of gaffler for payroll purposes. He is primarily an assistant engineer. He and the Ravus chief engineer are the best of friends, she teaches him engineering, and he teaches her about being Apsu.
Gaffler 4: The youngest of the four brothers, he is not long out of the Academy and is working his first duty in the stars. The other boys, had all server on other vessels.
General Crewman: Apsu, junior deck hands that serve on the bridge, during off duty shifts, backup navigator when the Captain is off the ship.
General Crewman: Syk’a rii, junior deck hands that serve on the bridge, during off duty shifts
