Captain, Main Pilot:Edit
Shoma (No Last name) A hard bitten woman, who cleans up right nice and is beautiful on the rare occasions when she smiles.
Strengths - Personal Combat, determination, smart, perception.
Weaknesses - Intent on Self Ownership and Defending her assembled family
An orphan, then a prostitute/thief/grifter, then a madam, then a leg breaker for a local Mob, Shoma tried to get out of "The Life" and fell in love with Tahn Mos. The success of the escape was mixed.
Tahn Mos - A bigger than average man with white hair and white walrus moustache. Smarter than he often seems, and tougher. Formerly a police investigator. He "flipped" Shoma based on her desire to escape "the Life", and fell in love. - when expected protection from legal system faded away, Tahn Mos and Shoma "liberated" a large chunk of Mob money and esccaped to the frontier, where they bought and rehabbed "Azzic House"
Strengths - Investigation, Administration, making contacts. Patience and determination.
Weaknesses - "secretly" idealistic, loves Shoma
Losma Won - A thin, ascetic looking woman, with dark hair. She is past brilliant and past crazy. A superior doctor and mad scientist, when not engaged in mad science or an emergency, she calms herself with drugs and music.
Considers Tahn and Shoma friends, because they can almost keep up with her. Followed Tahn to the Azzic House because if he left "She wouldn't have anyone to talk to." - the lack of romantic chemstry between Tahn annd Losma is remarkable.
Has a weird relationship with Yba Mar
Strengths - medical skill, mad science, Super smart
Weaknesses - Mad, drugs, super smart makes ordinary things difficult for her.
Noram Zaid - A regal woman, of a Zarian Noble house. When she was young, she was a mercenary high tech thief, infiltrator and adventurer.
Her family was ruined by political treachery. Her parents died in a mysterious Shuttle accident. She learned about the Conspiracies that run the Balmoran Federation and is intent on taking down the faction that murdered her parents... as soon as she discovers which one that is.
Strengths: Techno-magic. breaking and Entering. High Society. lying convincingly
Weaknesses: Occassionally overwhelmed with the shortages and compromises demanded by life on the bottom edges of society. Doesn't see herself as one of "those" people.
Yba Mar - Formely A model and a minor sports figure on Balmoria, Yba was handsome, strong and rich. But he wasn't smart. A corrupt business manager and an evil, gold digging wife stripped him of his fortune, then framed him for taking performance enhancing drugs.
Mar was ruined and broke. Then he was profoundly injured in a sport-flyer accident. Tahn investigated andd referred Yba to Losma. Losma used cybernetics to repair Mar. Her work is quirky, and she was using stolen Fesn Qsud technology, which is not the standard.
Mar is obviously a Cyborg. He has discovered that he really doesn't care about anything but beer, friends, doing some work to earn some money and so on. He also likes to hit people (Left over from pro sports), is perfectly willing to injure and kill people he doesn't know. He would deaarly love to tie his ex-wife and his ex-business manager into knots and toss them out an air-lock.
Has a weird relationship with Losma. They are sexually attracted to each other, but otherwise almost different life forms.
Lan Margo - An older man, often somewhat drunk. He used to be an investigative reporter, and then turned into a popular video presenter and then ran for office and succeded.
In the process he sold his soul. Margo was wheeling and dealing and drinking himself to death when Tahn and Shoma made contact and asked for help. Shoma wanted to turn over on the mob to escape the life. Seeing a chance to regain his previous idealism, Margo got behind Shoma andd Tahn and pushed.
His enemies out maneuvered him. They quashed the case and its legal protection for Shoma and Tahn. Lan fought this tooth and nail, but was quickly unddercut and on his way to ruination.
He warned Tahn and Shoma that they were about to be thrown under the bus. With that his political career was ruined. His fortune wwas confiscated and his wife left him. He is considered a disreputable, self-destructed former politician.

Toxi Imsok - A tall woman with short, curly dark hair. She is a former professional commercial starship officer, which gives her skills at organizing the Azzic House that the regular crew lacks. Toxi is mostly quiet, and oftenn seems sad and withdrawn. Her evidence of former, unspoken trauma puts her right at home with the rest of the Azzic house crew.
Strengths - Pilot, Spacemanship, organization, hard work.
