Field Marshal Sellera
Sellera's bust, by JayEcho
|Occupation||Federation Officer. Commander of the Kressia Occupation.|
|Nationality||Myrellion, Scarlet Federation|
A military prodigy, Marshal Sellera quickly rose to prominence during the Seven Years War on her homeworld of Myrellion. Originally a Scarlet Federation infantry officer, the necessities of wartime caused her to advance quickly through the ranks until, shortly before the cease fire, she was given command of the offensive forces pushing towards Gildenmere and appointed to the rank of Field Marshal.
Field Marshal Sellera is a severe-looking, thoroughly imposing Scarlet Federation officer. You estimate her height to be just a hair's breadth under five foot ten. Her tight, form-fitting uniform hugs her respectable curves while also serving as a suitable canvas on which to pin her considerable amount of medals and other decorations. Unlike other officers you've seen, however, her blouse is opened slightly to reveal just an inch of her alluring cleavage. Everything about her gives off a sense of almost feline looseness, as if she's a relaxed predator just waiting to pounce at her leisure. It's unnerving when contrasted with the other strict, disciplined Reds you've seen so far.
You find it difficult to gauge her actual age just by looking. She carries herself with the liveliness of youth, but that energy belies the abundance of experienced hinted at by her weathered features. Her rank implies that she's a veteran among veterans, though wartime can make for rapid promotions.
Her face looks like it may have once had soft curves and feminine cuteness, but those have long since been worn away by years on the battlefield. Her eyes are a solid obsidian, but there's something sharp and menacing about how they take in every bit of light which falls upon them. Staring into them for too long leaves you feeling on-edge and nervous, like staring into the abyss of starless space. Her lips are surprisingly plump and inviting, or would be if they were in an expression that didn't look inches away from a knife-edge sneer.
The raven-black locks atop her head are mostly hidden beneath her cap, but something tells you that her hair is cut into the exact same style as the near-identical soldiers roaming about the rest of the manor.
From what you can tell, the marshal's chest is somewhere in the C-cup range, which is perhaps a little humble by the standards of the greater galaxy. Her bust is, however, more than a little perky and practically begs to be ogled, especially with that scant bit of cleavage acting like a black hole for your stare. If you didn't know better, you'd think that was on purpose.
Going down from there, her taut, lean midriff transitions into a slender waist and hips that just manage to be feminine. In addition to her formal uniform blouse, Sellera wears a long, equally formal skirt. Filling out its back is a pair of toned, fit buttocks with just the right balance of roundness and firmness to perfectly complement the rest of the marshal's athletic, warrior-woman physique.
A pair of boot-like chitinous plates, thicker and longer than those sported by most other red myr, reach up from her feet to just below her knees and leave a scarce expanse of exposed flesh between their edge and the hem of her long skirt. You notice that her chitin is rather bright and prolific, looking almost scarlet in comparison to the dried-blood reddish-black that seems to be the norm, and covering much of her hands, fingers, and forearms in addition to her legs.
In all, Sellera exudes an almost bestial magnetism that could certainly inspire people to follow and respect her.
History/Personality/Information of Note
Sellera is relatively sparse with personal details, other than that she was an infantry officer before the breakout of the planet-wide war, and rose quickly through the ranks thereafter. It can be inferred that she saw quite a lot of action firsthand, and that she accumulated a great deal of honor and prestige, as her chest full of medals attests. Unlike Lieve or Nehzara, Sellera shows absolute contempt for the gold myr as a whole, and her dialogue indicates she may desire to wipe them out -- she believes her enemies are cowardly, and fight without honor. She especially holds the gold myr use of chemical weapons and bomber aircraft in disdain.
She appears to hold her subordinates Kalayna and Nehzara in disdain, due to their feud, which she regards as pointless skullduggery, the former's corruption and blackmail circles, and the latter's mother pulling strings behind the scenes to advance her career, with or without her knowledge.
When Captain Steele interacts with Sellera, she's shown to be exceedingly well-informed about the player, possibly having spied on them since their arrival. Given Steele's status as an offworlder, and a capable one at that, she'll suggest there may be great reward in helping the Federation overcome the rebellion gold myr they've conquered... and even helping in the final push against Gildenmere.
Steele can talk to Sellera about herself and the war effort. If you've met Nehzara, it's also possible to ask about the Marshal's opinion of her.
Sellera does not offer to have sex with Steele at present, though she strongly implies that helping the Federation war effort might change that.
Sellera is involved in a pro-Federation quest.
When Steele offers to Help Marshal Sellera for the Red's cause, she will reveal that High Command has ordered her to form an assignment for Lieve Thyrsa that entails capturing the rogue "War Queen". The mission will involve going into a Gold myr-occupied city and entering its munitions factory to find and capture the gold queen there. Rewards and outcomes will vary depending on Steele's choices throughout the quest.
