Pyra’s Bust, by Echo3Dx
The Silence's fiery, expletive-prone chief engineer, Pyra is a miracle worker with anything mechanical, but has a very abrasive chip on her shoulder.
Pyra’s... different. She came on board without invitation, scrambling up through one of the exhaust ports. When Blackstar caught her, she said she’d come aboard when she saw the Silence’s shield generator. Because it was broken, and needed fixing. Sure enough, if you’d tried to leave atmo, it would have been crispy catgirl and crew for sure. Raskvel -- that’s her species -- have a weird obsession with broken tech, and Pyra’s the best damn mechanic you could ask for on a budget of the occasional roll in the hay and a few protein cubes. She’s a little abrasive, but ever since your last engineer, Irish, got pinched on New Texas, she’s kept the ship running like new. Or as new as the Silence ever was.
History/Personality/Information of Note
Pyra was born on the rust fields of Tarkus, like most of her race, and quickly developed a penchant for technology. She accidentally joined the crew of the Silence after stowing away and fixing a broken shield emitter on the strange, alien space ship. Thanks to her mechanical aptitude, she was allowed to stay aboard despite her acerbic attitude, and eventually rose to the rank of Chief Engineer shortly before the events of The Silence.
She does not currently appear in the main TiTS campaign.
Pyra is currently unsexable.
