The Principals[edit]

Penumbra Securities is managed by five principals, whose profiles are detailed below. The principals are the primary groundside operatives; if additional groundsite support is required, it is subcontracted through other security organisations.

Caana'Eeos vas Neema nar Rygais "Kane"[edit]

[[Image: ]]

Profile: A technical specialist and infiltrator from the Quarian Flotilla, Kane completed his Pilgrimage only to head back out into the unfriendly world outside of the fleet to continue his mercenary lifestyle. Kane isn't his actual name, but the full thing is a mouthful for non-Quarians and he prefers Kane to the other nicknames he's gained in the past.

Key training and skills include:

  • Skilled engineer with a specialism in starships and ships systems
  • Expertise in software and VI with a particular interest in geth technology
  • Exceptional marksman
  • Stealth and intrusion specialist

Kirroe Tuditan[edit]

[[Image: ]]

Profile: A former Cabal biotic in the Turian Hierarchy, Kirroe served as an operative under Nihlus, the Spectre who was murdered by Saren.

Key training and skills include:

  • Turian Hierarchy Cabal-trained combat biotic
  • Master of four forms of turian martial arts
  • Qualified legal counsel (Palaven Legal Code)
  • Experienced business negotiator
  • Contacts at high levels in the Hierarchy

Russell Ortiz[edit]

Mte-Russel.jpg

Profile: A former Systems Alliance officer, Russell hails from the Attican Traverse. A colony kid from a military family, he enlisted in 2176, serving in the 4th Frontier Division. He led a Marine Reconnaisance team during the operation on Torfan, coming out of that brutal conflict with a medal for valour and an officer's commission. After completing Officer Cadet School, he was invited to the N7 school passing the N1 course and was transferred to the 103rd Division. He received an honourable discharge in 2181 and has been working to build up Penumbra Securities since that time.

Key skills and training include:

  • Graduate of the Systems Alliance Interplanetary Combatives Academy (N1 designation)
  • Combat Leader and Tactical Advisor
  • Drill instructor with a special focus on recruiting, training and leading paramilitary forces
  • Systems Alliance-qualified Class II Pilot (Atmospheric, Orbital)
  • Systems Alliance-certified Combat Medic (Trauma Speciality)


On the other Principals:

  • On Kane: "Kane's a magician; no really he is. Put some raw materials, an omni-tool and an objective in front of him, give him an hour and he conjures tech out of the ether. Could have had his pick of roles back with the Flotilla, but chose us."
  • On Kirroe: "Kirroe is an enigmatic collection of contradictions all bundled up together. In business she's this cool, savvy, sharp-minded executive. But in a fight she can be this hot-tempered, impulsive beserker who you wouldn't want to be on the wrong side of."
  • On Sam: "I've known Sam a number of years now, she saved my life on Omega back where it all began. I like to think we have an understanding; she sets them up, I knock them down. Worked then and still does now. Though I now know better than to play poker with her..."
  • On Yghorl: "Yghorl's a big guy, even for a krogan, but seeing how he tends to his patients there's a real gentleness to him too. Stitched me up more than a few times. Just don't tell him I said that, I've seen him knock an elcor out cold with a head-butt."

Samantha Lyn[edit]

Mte-Samantha.jpg

Profile: A human biotic of significant power, the young Samantha is one of the founding members of Penumbra and was pivotal in its creation on Omega. She's said to have ties to Aria herself through Samantha's mother, who is in fact 'father' to one of Aria's own daughters.

Key training and skills include:

  • Graduate of the Jon Grissom Academy's Project Ascension for biotics
  • Political and Cultural Analysis
  • Cross-species body language, micro-expression and linguistic-pattern interrogation and negotiation techniques


On the other Principals:

  • On Kane: "He’s a bit of an enigma to me – now he’s here, now he isn’t. When I see his fingers dance across the omni-tool, I’m so back with Nguye when we were still talking... I do think he’s as talented as that. Plus you wouldn’t believe the courage he’s shown, jumping out in front of the enemy to draw fire, and all in that life-preserving suit of his that he cannot risk getting a hole in. Don’t know that I could do that. I only wish I could see his face sometimes. It’s hard making friends with someone who’s perpetually behind a visor... "
  • On Kirroe: "After I first met Kirroe, I wanted to be a vanguard so bad. I reckon I’ll never be as fast or as strong as her and you should see her charge. But then my talents lie elsewhere... or that’s what they used to say at Grissom’s. I was so happy to have her join us, finally another girl on the team and a pretty one, too! As pretty as Turians come apparently. Sharp as an omniblade in business and would you believe she had a real Spectre boyfriend... I’ve seen it with my own eyes!"
  • On Russell: "He’s tall and quiet and sort of easy to overlook. Until you get into a hot zone with him and I do mean the sort where bullets are flying. He’s deadly, disciplined and the best teamworker I can think of. He has courage to share, that’s for sure... Makes you wonder what happened to him back on Torfan that makes him look not quite right when he’s talking about it. Like a piece of his heart was nicked, or something. I could try asking Pete Nguye again, but... "
  • On Yghorl: "Two things you want to avoid. Never get between Yghorl and his prey when he rushing at them head down yelling with battle-joy. And never make funny jokes about him in my hearing if you want to stay my friend. Yghorl is a good one, big in a fight, quick thinker with his medical skills, plus he slings eezo. If you’re looking for a medic it’d be Yghorl you want, except you can’t have him because he’s with us already. "
