Current Characters


Kari "Fury" Tyrell

Kari is an ace fighter-pilot, legendary throughout the Republic for turning the tide of the Battle of Whiterim. Only twenty-three years old, she is the youngest pilot ever to achieve the rank of Commander. Kari's assignment on the Republic frigate Danzig ended when the frigate was destroyed by an Alliance ambush. Kari was rescued from certain death by the crew of Niobe.


Vaegyr Ward

Vaegyr is the captain of Niobe. Born on Farhaven, an Alliance planet, he ran away from both his family and his homeworld as a teenager. Vaegyr spent years jumping from one ship to another, doing whatever jobs were available and learning much along the way. How he came to be the sole owner of Niobe is a mystery, but he always grins slyly when the question is raised.

Daniel Qian

Twenty-five years old, Daniel joined Niobe as ship’s medic after leaving a lucrative practice on the Republic world of Gaidana. An evangelical Christian, he has a reputation for being something of a ‘Bible basher’. He does not seem to mind the characterisation.

Larissa Ward

As well as being Niobe’s pilot, Larissa is also married to her captain, Vaegyr. Formerly trained by the R.A.S.F. to pilot corvette-class starships, Larissa has not revealed why she did not pursue a career in the military – though she has implied that Vaegyr had something to do with the decision.


Hal Grisdale

Hal is an exceptionally talented engineer who seems to have had some formal military training in addition to his aborted engineering degree from Tau Ceti University. He boasts an ocular augmentation which gives advanced targeting and range-finding abilities. Hal is loved by all women, at least that’s how he reports it – actual evidence suggests otherwise.



Whisper has never divulged her real name, or even admitted that she has one. Though playful and talkative, she never speaks about her life before Niobe. Her augmentations are extensive, covering most of her body, and she is Niobe’s expert on augmentation and cybernetics. No-one really knows what extra abilities her augmentations might grant her.

Previous Characters


Nicholas "Merlin" Fernandez

Nick was Kari's wingman during her service aboard the Republic frigate Danzig. Young and eager for action, he frequently irritated Kari with his puppy-dog enthusiasm. Nick died when his Scimitar was shot down during a dogfight in the Forlorn system (see Prologue).


Robert "Control" Carter

Normally referred to by his official title of 'Control', Bob oversaw all flight operations on the Danzig, as well as many secondary and tertiary systems. He seldom slept and rarely ate, but was known to have a great fondness for golf and was rumoured to have a girlfriend somewhere. Bob was last see aboard the Danzig before it was destroyed by an Alliance ambush in the Forlorn system, he is presumed to have died in the attack.
