Danica - Venetian Scout aged 56.
They soon found one docked in their starport. It was called The Ace of Spades and its captain, Kimberley Wells, was hiring new crew. After running a background check on them, Kimberley was impressed enough to hire them both. Danica was welcomed on board by the rest of the crew, who were very curious about her. She was one of only two non-humans amongst the small crew of 13 (Celeste the android was the other) and she was the only psyker on board. She promised not to read any of their minds. She quickly settled in and was readily accepted as one of the girls. Rather unusually, the crew was made up entirely of females. Danica is not at all like a typical Venetian. Whereas most Venetians are noted for being aloof and ascetic, Danica is more impious and she has a cheeky sense of humour. Because Kimberley runs her ship in such a casual and carefree manner, Danica's relationship with Katja is openly accepted and supported.
"Perimeter is secure. I'm moving in now."
"Tell me everything you know about this place... and don't even think about lying to me."
Katja Sondquist - Human Scout aged 27.
As luck would have it, they found just such a ship docked at their starport, The Ace of Spades, who were advertising for new crew members. They offered their services to the ship's captain, Kimberley Wells, and were hired almost immediately. Katja and Danica make a good team and often go out on scouting missions together. They are both highly skilled combatants and survival experts. Katja and Danica have very different personalities. Katja is the more extroverted and outgoing of the two. She is cool under pressure, very loyal to her friends and incredibly energetic. When The Ace of Spades is travelling through space, you will most likely find Katja in the ship's gymnasium, working out. She keeps a diary, which she updates whenever she can. Working for Kimberley, she has found an awful lot to write about!
"Hmm, I'll just make a note of that in my diary."
"Last one to the top of the hill is a dreg head!"
Rebecca Faye Ellington - Human Burglar aged 23.
Her luck almost ran out two years ago when she was caught red-handed breaking into a hotel room she thought was unoccupied. It wasn't. Staying there was Kimberley Wells, captain of an independent scout ship called The Ace of Spades. Kimberley persuaded Rebecca to sit down with her and tell her life story. Rather than turn her in to the authorities, Kimberley offered Rebecca a post on her ship. Officially, her role is as a scout - she is especially good in urban environments, but she is still a thief and Kimberley happily turns a blind eye to Rebecca's illegal activities, just as long as she doesn't steal from her crew or get caught. At long last, Rebecca feels like she has a home and she is eternally grateful to Kimberley for giving her a chance to do some good. Rebecca has a devil-may-care attitude to life and is quite boisterous and isn't afraid to speak her mind. She tries to avoid combat whenever possible but will have no hesitation in defending herself when necessary.
"Hmm, that's a nice necklace she's wearing. I'm sure it would look a lot nicer around my neck."
"Wassamatter? You never seen a woman without a bra on before?"
