What she looks like: Sharon Willis has been an alien bounty hunter for the better part of her 57 years of life, and it shows. Her tan, wrinkled skin is marred with a collection of stark white scars. The most prominent of these is a large…
What she looks like: Oor’Ha is almost six feet tall and is extremely lithe. Her skin is a light grey and almost feels like velvet to the touch. She keeps her white hair in loose braids and adorns them with yellow and green beads. Her green eyes are hidden by a second eyelid that makes them appear milky white most of the time.
Where she lives: She lives in her family’s fortress along with Dal’Ren. Her rooms are lavish compared to his, but that’s to be expected of the heir to the Myr-Sqai Crime Syndicate. She spends most of her days either being instructed on the finer points of running the business or running actual operations.
A weakness: No one else knows this, but she found out about Dal’Ren’s true heritage a couple of years ago. She tells herself that the real reason she hasn’t told her best friend what actually happened is because he’s happier not knowing. He’s going to stay there forever with her, so the information wouldn’t do anything but hurt him. Sometimes, though, she’ll admit to herself that she’s terrified that he’d runaway to find his real family and leave her all alone. Besides, if he did run off to his parents, he’d be an enemy of her family, and she couldn’t bear that.
A strength: Not only does she have her family’s crime syndicate to back and protect her, Oor’Ha also completed her rite of passage and attained her own companion, a red marsupial with claws that are almost talon like. This isn’t to say that she needs protecting, as she can be absolutely ruthless when she has a goal.
Someone else in her life: In’Noi Myr-Sqai
What he looks like: As a well aged male member of the Venulite race (the sentient aliens who live on the moon Venulyn), In’Noi stands over 7ft tall, is extremely muscular, and is a darker shade of grey than his granddaughter with rings of white tattoos that course up all the arms he possesses. Male Venulite have two legs and four arms, and the tattoos are traditional markings that indicate rank and age within the race. For instance, because Dal’Ren has just completed his rite of passage, he only has one ring of tattoos around his wrists. In’Noi has over fifty rings that cover his arms from wrist to shoulder on the lower set, and another twenty-five cover the upper set from wrist to elbow. Like Dal’Ren, his white hair is kept in tight cornrows, but instead of stone beads, he wears metal ones. Don’t think the tattoos mean that his race is a tribal one. The Myr-Sqai syndicate is an extremely rich and powerful one. He wears the finest, strongest, modern body armor money can buy. His usual attire consists of metal trimmed boots, leggings, chest piece, and gauntlets, leaving his arms and tattoos exposed. His eyes are also just like his granddaughter’s.
Where he lives: Of course he lives in the family fortress. He is the patriarch of the syndicate, and he possesses the largest of the living quarters. He used to share it with his wife, but she died of illness a decade back. The fortress within the volcano is practically a city unto itself, with various levels populated by different castes of Venulites and other sentient races
A weakness: In’Noi is dying of the same illness that took his wife years ago, though that information is being kept a secret from everyone in the syndicate, including his own family. The reason he does not want anyone else to know about his disease is that he does not want his exiled son, Oor’Ha’s father, to think he can just return to the syndicate and take things over once he’s dead. Oor’Ha is being groomed as his sole heir and successor. End of story.
A strength: One of the main reasons the Myr-Sqai syndicate is able to keep so many bounty hunters and governments at bay is because of leverage. It was a strategy In’Noi created in his youth. When a threat from a rival group rears its ugly head, you steal something precious from the leader of that group and hold it hostage. If the leaders have young children, those are to be the primary targets always. Then, while they are young and living on Venulyn, they are treated well and raised by the patriarch’s family, not as slaves, but as a well respected servant caste who often serves as “royal guards” and “attendants” so to speak. The children don’t question the Myr-Sqai because they are often told that their original parents were killed or abandoned them. These children are raised so that even if their families or native race resurfaces, their loyalty is first and foremost to the Myr-Sqai and the syndicate.
