NPCs[edit]

Paula Sol-Withers
Paula was the acceptance agent for the repossession of the ship Turning Point. She is a relative of Ingrum Sol, the guy who sponsored the mission. When encountered at Rotgut station she is a Whitehead, addicted to White a sensory-overload via a vibe-helmet.
Trona Brederode
Back on his Secondary Ed stage of training with the Order, the student just ahead of Rabbit in the Rankings was Trona. He was the last of the Lead Cadre, and one of the few to spot Rabbit’s position in Mid Cadre as chosen, not due to inability.
They’d had a friendly rivalry, a brief flirtation, and a few passionate nights toward the end. But Trona had surged for a high-rank posting, and Rabbit held to the safe track, and they had gone their different ways.

Factions[edit]

The Seven Stars[edit]

A Controlling Military Coalition. A group of planets that prefers a strong show of force to keep both its citizens and rivals in line. A large part of its forces are conscripted from "feeder worlds" where the population has little alternative but to serve, however it does also hire mercenaries.

Section 7[edit]

(Defiant Scientific Collective)

Within the Seven Stars is a mysterious collective of individuals who see with greater clarity the needs of humanity. They are not motivated by power or control, but by data and knowledge. The hegemony of the Seven Stars is a useful construct for providing stability, but humanity's greatness lies in its capacity for creativity and adaptation. Science is the conduit for humanity's achievement. Science is what distinguishes us from other forms of life. Science is our divinity.

One day soon, the Seven Stars coalition will become the infrastructural schematic for humanity to ascend to its true form and purpose.

The Order[edit]

The Order's purpose is to take care of the lost and forgotten, minister to the poor, and heal the sick. Since there are so many of those, members of the Order are parsimonious with their resources, not spending much on themselves. They provide training for their charges, helping them find careers as productive members of society, and charge them a fair price for it, to be paid out of future earnings.

  • Names As part of their Promary Training completion, novitiates of the Order take a use-name to signal their membership in the Order. These can be names of historical figured, mythological names, or names with ho pt\revious history.

The Invisible Hand[edit]

An Elite, Mercantile Alliance. An alliance of corporations, trade merchant guilds, and other mercantile concerns. They only admit into the alliance elite, established, posh members. The existence of the alliance is semi-secret (except in places where the "member" is a government focus on trade) in most places.
