Gwailo by Vumpalouska
Gwailo
A character from my scifi universe.

* * *

The gwailos are genderless, vat-grown slaves of the Outsiders. Genetically loyal, they outnumber their masters by more than twenty to one and perform all the menial tasks onboard the massive Grand Liner starships. The gwailos are immensely strong, surprisingly fast and completely expendable; the Outsiders often use them as soldiers during raids and boarding actions. In the Outsider-Federation war, massive armies of gwailos engaged in ground operations and were left behind to fight to the death when the Ousiders finally retreated from Federation space.

The gwailos are able to survive in extreme conditions, including near-vacuum and heavily irradiated areas. They lack digestive systems and are instead "fed" by pumping nutrient fluid directly into their circulatory system. Their mental abilities and capacity for independent thought remain a matter of debate, but they are widely believed to have very little if any initiative on their own - they exist only to serve their masters.

Zambu by Vumpalouska
Zambu
A character from my scifi universe.

* * *

Name: Zambu
Date of Birth: Unknown
Height: 178 cm
Weight: 60 kg
Species: Spacer (Homo Novus Astrum) cyborg
Occupation: Gunnery officer
Affiliation: The Outsiders, Hawking Clan

Master Gunner Zambu is a member of the Captain's advisory council on the Grand Liner Rhubarb Sky. The care and maintenance of the ship's weapon systems (as well as individual crew members' personal weapons) are his responsibility. As the Rhubarb Sky is unusually heavily armed even for a Grand Liner, his position grants him quite a bit of power and responsibility. Like Captain Darridan, Zambu was among the original crew of the 61 Cygni colonization mission in the 25th century, which makes him a first-generation Outsider. He seems to have an almost slavish devotion to his Captain and is dangerously eager to put the Rhubarb Sky's heaviest weapons to use whenever trouble arises. During long interstellar voyages, when the Grand Liner's transhuman crew occupy themselves with various RPG simulations, Zambu prefers, rather paradoxically, the role of a healer.

Captain Darridan by Vumpalouska
Captain Darridan
A character from my scifi universe.

* * *

Name: Darridan
Date of Birth: Unknown
Height: 212 cm
Weight: 197 kg
Species: Human cyborg, subspecies unknown
Occupation: Grand Liner Captain
Affiliation: The Outsiders, Hawking Clan

Captain Darridan is the lord and master of the Grand Liner Rhubarb Sky. Like all Outsider Captains, he is very old and heavily augmented to the point of being mostly synthetic. Having spent centuries jacked in to his ship's central AI, there is very little disctinction between the two by now.

Captain Darridan is one of the senior members of the Hawking Clan, and it is known that he was among the original crew of the ill-fated colonization mission to 61 Cygni in the late 25th century, just before the dawn of FTL spaceflight. Non-Outsiders who've had dealings with Darridan have described him as inhumanly intelligent and often very polite, but also ruthless, amoral and arrogant. During the Outsider-Federation war of 3307-3360, Darridan was responsible for several damaging attacks against the Harmonic Federation, and the crew of the Rhubarb Sky were noted as being particularly cruel in their treatment of prisoners.

After the War, Captain Darridan and his crew have been keeping away from Federation systems (where they are wanted for war crimes), staying in the more remote areas of human space instead. In recent decades, they have been involved in various high-end research projects in Evermind system.

Dr. Ildi by Vumpalouska
Dr. Ildi
A character from my scifi universe.

* * *

Name: Ildi
Date of Birth: July 5th, 3017
Length: 230 cm
Weight: 225 kg
Species: Nixie
Occupation: Science officer
Affiliation: The Outsiders, Hawking Clan

Dr. Ildi is the Master Scientist of the Grand Liner Rhubarb Sky and part of the Captain's advisory council. As her title indicates, her primary job on the ship is to lead the scientific team that develops new technologies and analyzes whatever interesting discoveries the crew happens to make on their journeys. She also takes care of the ship's medical facilities and is usually the one who handles synapse mappings of crew members who wish to create backups of their memories. Ildi is one of the rare high-ranking Outsiders who was not born into their culture. She is originally from the Objectivist Arc and joined Captain Darridan's crew sometime in the 3100s, quickly gaining his trust and rising in rank.

Ildi gained some infamy during the Outsider-Federation War of 3307-3360 when she performed various highly unethical experiments on prisoners. Because of this, she is wanted for war crimes in Federation systems (even more so than other high-ranking crew members of the Rhubarb Sky that is).

Frostlord by Vumpalouska
Frostlord
A size comparison between an average human and a frostlord, an alien native to the planet-moon Tiera. Despite having never advanced beyond stone age, the frostlords are one of the very few intelligent species found in human-settled space. They are large, white-furred carnivores with four eyes, eight prehensile legs, a single curved horn and a hard, bony beak. They are well-adapted to the harsh conditions of Tiera's Northenrmost regions, leading a nomadic existence as small tribal units. They are rather long-lived, with lifespans of up to 200 years.

The frostlords are mostly unaggressive when it comes to humans. They have limited contact with Tiera's native human population -  themselves a medieval civilization - but some tribes have learned human language and occasionally barter with the Northern city-states and their wizard-lords. The frostlords have also been rather hospitable with the interstellar human explorers who have been sending landing parties on Tiera for the past three centuries. Xenopsychologists have described them as "inscrutable", as the frostlords often talk in highly metaphysical terms yet do not (apparently) have any form of religion or superstitions. They seem to revere Evermind, the ancient Jupiter brain Tiera orbits, but have made it clear that, unlike the native humans, they do not think of it as a god.

Ok... It's finally done. I just watched the (in)famous Turkish Star Wars, a film so bad it quite possibly marks the lowest point in the history of cinema. There are no words to adequately describe what I just saw, so I will merely link the film here. Watch it at your own discretion, for it may cause permanent brain damage.

There is also a great review (with clips and captures) at the Spoony Experiment website: spoonyexperiment.com/turkish-s…

'Nuff said.

It's also the name of my region...


Creative, eh? I haven't taken part in any RPs in quite some time, though... I'm planning to remedy that, however.

And who would you be, then?

Not at all.

First, the Moon, then the rest of the Solar System and finally the stars themselves!

Then, in one fateful day, the Lunar colonists decide they no longer want to be ruled by those pesky Earthlings and use their mass drivers to bomb all of Earth's military bases into smoking ruins.
