Space Opera Characters

The crew of a small starship, plying the space lanes and trying to turn a profit in any way they can. The specifics of who exactly is in charge are up to you. As a minimum, you will need someone with the Pilot and Navigator specialities, and someone with the Engineer speciality.

Former Fleet Officer
A professional spacefarer, who served aboard a warship, this character is competent with a wide range of useful skills, and not too shabby in a fight. Why they left their former career is up to the player.

Merc
This hard-bitten veteran is a veritable killing machine, highly trained and fitted with bionic implants to improve their combat capabilities. However, away from battle their usefulness may be somewhat limited.

Pilot
This quick-witted character is an ace pilot, with contacts amongst both respectable merchants and more shady individuals. Not much use in a fight planetside, they come into their element during high speed chases through asteroid fields, or when the laser cannons start firing.

Engineer
This character is a skilled engineer, born to the lowest ranks of society. It is possible that they were enslaved due to the fact that they’re a mutant, but whatever the circumstances, they’ve worked their way from planet to planet, gaining contacts amongst interstellar merchants by their talent at keeping a ship moving and in one piece. They’re also not too shabby in a fight in case anyone does decide to make a comment about their odd appearance.

Psychic
This character is a highly trained psionic, able to sense and read minds, and telepathically communicate with others. In addition to this, they are trained medic, which will inevitably come in useful. However, while they know how to use a gun, they are next to useless in a punch-up and should be kept carefully away from the front line.

Noble
A wealthy scion of galactic aristocracy, elegant and charming and trained to defend their honour and that of their house in traditional duels, there are a great many reasons why this individual is on board a ship plying the trade routes of the galaxy, and their artificially enhanced charms and highly-placed connections would be an asset in a great many situations.
