Personal Information

Inactive

Taniya is described as heavily tattooed, with dark skin and hair. She's stated that she's been on at least two missions before; it is hinted that she may have gone on the Taghdara mission. It's possible she's been on more than two missions as well. She has also stated that she doesn't like to talk about her past.

Taniya grew up on the planet Hiltor, former home of the Hiltorel alien species. The population of Hiltor is heavily militarized, being thought of as an outpost against alien invasions toward Earth. It had been several centuries since any aliens actually attempted to attack Earth, however, so the ruling military junta decided on some rather drastic measures to stimulate the economy.

During her term in the military, Taniya rose quickly through the ranks, becoming granted the position of Third Seat Bomber of the First Colonial Stealth Force. A popular military strategy of the time was to bomb "problematic" alien colonies to slow their development, and Taniya ran more missions than most. The practice was supposedly discontinued at the time, but the actions of the Stealth Force were undercover and not actually revealed to the galactic population. Instead the incidents were branded "terrorist attacks" and frowned on in the media to save face.

Taniya's squadron flew in old, generic fighter ships that couldn't be traced back to the military, but trained extensively. In combat, forces several times their size could hardly scratch them. For her first few undercover bombing raids, she felt a deep sense of guilt for killing so many alien civilians, but over time, she became more accustomed to it - and then actually started to enjoy it a little.

Of course, someone eventually discovered the government's corruption. The military junta distanced themselves from it, saying that they had no part in the matter and didn't even know it was going on. The court believed it, and tried Taniya and her squadmates as war criminals, subsequently ordering them to death by Mimir execution. Her squad was shipped off for Valhalla… except her. She managed to escape prison before the transports arrived, underwent some medical transformations to conceal her identity, and fled.

When finally away from the squad, her past started catching up with her in the form of guilt. Taniya began having trouble with insomnia, and sank into a dark depression. It was almost a year before she recovered, when she was 28. She decided to migrate to one of the Hiltorel worlds she had bombed - Siskl - and play the part of a Hiltorel monk. While obviously not Hiltorel herself, the Hiltorel welcomed her into their ranks, teaching her their profession: to enrich the lives of the less fortunate members of the population in exchange for donations.

For two years, Taniya's guilt was dulled, if not removed in whole or part, as she gave her time to menial tasks such as cleaning roadways and building shelters. She became accustomed to this quiet life, and found it much more to her liking than the excitement of her previous… but all things come to an end. The other monks eventually discovered her true identity. They shunned her for her misdeeds and sentenced her to death, shipping her to Tartarus on the next available flight.

Personality

While usually calm, she has a quick temper and is easily startled. She likes meditation and menial, repetitive activities like cleaning to keep her mind off missions. Most often pleasant and upbeat, but displays a sharp tongue if she feels she's being insulted or looked down upon. Would mostly prefer being left alone, but works well on a team.

Reason your character got REKT

War criminal: shipped to Tartarus by the same people she hurt, after she'd started to try helping them instead.
