You ever wonder if a woman under five feet can scare you? Admiral Kimberly Richards answers this question within five minutes of meeting you. The daughter of two Daeva in the traditional fashion, Kim has had a lot to prove in her life and the payout for all her hard work was the Exo Exit. The finest new coloniser in the Commonwealth fleet.

Formerly a high flying communications officer on the Exo Exit, this changed when a flight accident robbed Archie of both of his legs. Now he’s off his face on painkillers most of the time, Archie runs the Exits only radio station.

That Elric is an Orna model Daeva which sums up her personality better than anything. She was developed to be inquisitive with an utter incapability to stand still for more than five minutes.

Serving now as the Exit’s XO, he is on down time right now while Ham builds him a new arm…as slowly as physically possible.
