Voyage of The Dawnstar Character Submission Thread

The Voyage of the Dawnstar, in case you might not know it, is a story about a colony ship heade to the planet Barnard II, 5 Light Years from Earth.

It's a story about it's crew; a story about danger, difficulties, challenges, and how the colonists face them and survive.

And you're the ones that make and shape the story, bringing it to life.

***

The Voyage of the Dawnstar is a Hard Science Fiction story, and as such, we try to adhere to real science as closely as we can. Keep this in mind when playing; and when in doubt, ask the Game Master (me).

Bellow, the backstory, so you have what to build your character's story upon. You have quite a bit of freedom in it, and can create aspects of history not yet mentioned in the lore - but keep in mind, if those don't really fit into the story's mood or otherwise contradict what has already been stated, I'll have to ask you to change it, but otherwise, I'll do my best to incorporate it in.

Even if your ideas don't get included, they might inspire me to add something, so don't be afraid to let your mind go free.

The Story:
It's the end of the year 2015 ACE. Harold White, working at the JPL, announces his team discovered how to create space-time warps, opening up the possibility of FTL travel. The advent of the private space industry is slowly sparking interest for space into the general public.

By the early 2020's, many things happened. India got it's first astronaut into space. The ESA launched it's first Skylon spaceplane. The JAXA sent a manned mission to orbit the moon, tied with NASA's SLS-Orion Program.
Meanwhile, Russia is facing financial problems towards it's space program. Having to redirect funding to maintain it's damaged economy, it passes on it's legacy to one of it's commercial allies. Brasil receives a technological transfer from the Russians, allowing it to jump forwards and skip the decades lost after the 2003 set-back in it's space program. The Russians now limit their operations to maintaining the ISS.

Meanwhile, the advent of Graphene revolutionizes the way humans interact with the world in all scales. Still an expensive commodity, countries with access to Graphene production technology gain a significant boost on it's economy.

By the end of the decade, humanity has started to expand into space once more. In 2029, the Japanese set foot on the moon, and start the assembly of an early outpost, in conjunction with ESA. Meanwhile, NASA, lacking funding and on the verge of a possible collapse, redirects it's remaining capital into creating a technology demonstrator warp drive cubesat. A probe, sent earlier in the decade towards Jupiter's moons finds evidence of complex hydrocarbon substances in ice ejecta from the moon Europa. The US segments of the ISS are dismantled and burnt in the atmosphere, and the remaining modules are reassembled and operated by the Russians, Europeans and Japanese, with additional modules from India and Brasil being added.

The Chinese, meanwhile, have been focusing on it's own space station. The Tyong-Yang 5, a large, multi-piece station becomes fully operational.

In 2031, NASA's cubesat breaks the light speed barrier, a feat that not only opened up new frontiers to the human race, saves the agency from underfunding. By the mid of the decade, Fusion Reactors become real and feasible economically, revolutionizing the world. By the end of this decade, Men set foot on Mars, as a joint collaboration by all the spacefaring countries, excluding China.

While the governments keep pushing the frontier, back at home, the private companies dominate the niche. Launch services, refueling, payload construction, all now accessible to universities and institutions, and in some cases, individuals.

By 2040, probes have bem sent to all Stars in a 7,5 ly radius around the sun, and to some selected stars with indications of possibly habitable planets around them. Planetary Resources and Deep Space Industries dominate the Space Fuelling market, while SpaceX is the biggest shareholder of space hardware, followed closely by Boeing, Orbital and Bigellow. The private spacecraft however, is dominated by XCor. Launch services have been taken by Firefly Aerospace, and to a lesser extent, SpaceX too.

Life is discovered in Europa, with similar but unconfirmed readings from Saturn's moon Enceladus.

In the following years, humans settle Mars and it's moons, explore the outer solar sistem planets. The two big mining corporations set private colonies in Ceres for mining purposes.

In 2060, confirmation of a habitable planet in Gliese 667C prompted the governments to  join and colaborate once again, this time with the help of the corporations, to send a colony ship to that system.

Construction of the vessel began in 2062, being complete in 2074. The drive began charging in 2070, and it was at full capacity by completion of the vessel. Travel took a complete year, but confirmation of settlement would come only by 2095, due to Light-Delay.

In the meantime, three more FTL Colony ships were constructed: one destined to Tau Ceti e, Gliese 581d and Barnard's Star II, a recently discovered planet, revealed by the probe that visited the system in the decades before.

All missions departed in the year 2092. The first to arrive was the Barnard mission, but news of it's arrival would only arrive five years later. When news came, the world was shocked. The planet that should be a lush sub-terra was a horrible wasteland, with thin, non-breathable atmosphere, blazing temperatures and inhospitable landscape. Communications from the colony lasted only a month before sudden cutoff, after diverse failures and losses taken by the colony.

Anti-space groups back at earth raged, their numbers increased, and terrorist attacks were executed against the joint space agencies headquarters. Demands were made to bring the other ships back, but they were already at their destinations, and even so, there was no way to power the drive for a trip back.

Fortunately, confirmations of success by the other colonies came a few years later, and the terrorist groups lost force.

The incident showed what the lack of coordination from Terra could cause to colonies, so research was conducted into FTL Communications. The research bore fruit, and by 2105, every colony had a Quantum Non-Locality FTL Modem shipped and installed, linking them to Earth.

After the BII Catastrophe, no more colony ships were sent, but reviewing the data sent by the now moribund colony, scientist found something rather odd: The planet was extremely Metal-Rich.

This made absolutely no sense, but this time they made sure it was correct. The planet was indeed rich in precious metals and heavier elements, to the surprise of all planetologists and astronomers. Barnard's Star is an old Red Dwarf, it was formed before heavy elements became common in the universe.

Propelled by the scientific curiosity and the prospect of profit to be made, the Joint Space Alliance, the new supranational global agency, togheter with the private corporations started the assembly of a new colony ship. Construction began in 2108, construction taking seven years. Completion in 2115. Name of the vessel: Dawnstar.

NAME: Włodzimierz Wołyński
AGE: 27
OCUPATION: Engineer
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Height: 192 cm
  • Weight: 74 kg
  • Etnicity: Polish
  • Hair/Eyes: Red beard (not that small one), brown short hair (that look like mine, look up the name to the face thread to see), one green eye, one blue eye.
  • Additional Info: Does not have small finger on right hand.


BACKGROUND:

Born in a small town, near the capital of Silesian Independence League (yes, rly), called Knury, Włodzimierz was always a creative boy. He had a nice childhood, however the breakout of the Silesian War of 2104 changed everything.
He never was too strong, fast or good at PE at school. He was taken into army at age of 16. His entire life turned into ruin, as he saw his home being blown up by a bomb.
He only desired nothing, but vengence and remembrance from the war. He was almost killed in the battle of Cieszyn, but he managed to get out with just the loss of a finger, temporary deafness and left-eye blindness.
When Danzig and Western Pomerelia jonied the independence war against Polish-Beloruso Republic, his entire life flipped all over again.
The forces of P-B have so quickly grown, next and next battles he heard of were lost. When the siege of Wrocław took place, he fought bravely as one of the soldiers.
It was for his creativity and quick-thinking that the defenders could defeat the attacking army, by figuring out a way to use the laser blaster to make a bomb.
Shortly after peace was signed, with Silesia and Pomerelia gaining independence, he signed up for the crew of Dawnstar, as space was what he was dreaming of since he was 6.
Being approved to the flight, he traveled to the launch place, and from now his adventure begins.

Name: Maj. John "Cipher" Lewis
Age: 27
Occupation: Pilot, Weapons Technician
Physical Characteristics

  • Height: 175 cm
  • Weight: 64 kg
  • Ethnicity: American
  • Hair/Eyes: Short brown hair, blue eyes
  • Additional info: Fast reflexes, Sharp vision, Blue biouminescent tattoo of a Möbius strip on right shoulder (squadron insignia). He always has a silver watch and aviator glasses on him, which were gifts from his father.


Background
John Lewis was born into an American family with a rich military heritage on his father's side, and his father, Stephen Lewis, was a fighter pilot. He inherited his father's love of flying, and luckily, his 20/10 vision. Money was not a problem, and he graduated from a university with a degree in Sublight Engineering. He then graduated from Officer Candidate School at the top of his class at 21 and went on to fly the Wyvern fighter in the 118th Fighter Squadron.

When the Circum-Pacific War broke out, Lewis and his squadron were deployed to an air base in Japan. From there, he spent a month and a half doing combat air patrols over the Yellow Sea, and saw actual engagement on three missions, scoring a kill on each one. During a bomber escort mission, Lewis's fighter was damaged when a Chinese missile impacted nearby, sending shrapnel that tore through his left engine and fuel reserves. Radio equipment in the nose were also damaged, and Lewis couldn't communicate with the rest of his squadron. Although the impact occured near Shengyang, he was able to fly his damaged fighter in the blind until it ran out of fuel over occupied Korean territory. He ejected and landed near Seoul. He spent three days and nights on the run from Chinese troops who heard of a downed aircraft nearby, and then he was picked up by Korean resistance. For the next month, when the US believed he was KIA, Lewis was working with the resistance. He helped them create improvised explosives for hit and run attacks and was given a crash course in rifle mechanics when he found himself in the middle of four different firefights. Soon, a resistance leader was able to get a message to the US, and a special forces team extracted Lewis from Korea after he spent a month and a half behind enemy lines. When he returned to his squadron, he was given the callsign Cipher, because he was unbreakable. He was given the Silver Star for his actions, and scored two more kills later in his deployment, becoming an ace pilot.

After his deployment was over, he was transitioned to the American branch of the JSA, and acted as a test pilot for their SSTOs for four years. When there he piloted the test vehicle that would evolve into the ships packed onto the Dawnstar. When the Dawnstar was nearing completion, the JSA asked Lewis if he would care to be a pilot in the Dawnstar's crew. He accepted without hesitation.

Because of his time spent in Korea and Japan, he knows Korean well through immersion and a little bit of Japanese.

NAME: Jack Worsley
AGE: 25
OCUPATION: Pilot and Medic

PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:

Height: 166cm
Weight: 67kg
Ethnicity: New Zealander.
Hair/Eyes: Short blonde hair, Blue eyes.
Additional Info: Good vision, Maori style tattoo on shoulder of right arm, Slightly slower than average reflexes.

BACKGROUND:

Jack grew up in a rural area in Central Canterbury. Since he was young he wanted to fly planes and be an astronaut. starting highschool, he wanted to be a military pilot, but after the enviromentalist parties dominance of New Zealand Politics in the early 2100's New Zealand started a policy of pasificism(?) all combat military planes and helicopters given to NZ by america in the late 2080's were scrapped and repurposed. Since Jack didnt want to become a boring transport pilot he joined the next best thing, The New Zealand Space Conglomerate. An alliance of minor low cost satilite and manned corporations partially funded by the NZ government. He was almost kicked out of training to become a test pilot however his knowelege of piloting farming drones and aircraft aswell as spending much of his childhood playing in simulaters got him to Ace the entry exam, by the time the dawnstar was almost finished he was the top pilot in the NZSC. The NZSC, looking for more publicity and international recgognition aided in the construction of the dawnstar (albeit only with minor roles) and even managed to get several Kiwis onboard, However adding extra crew members last minute has forced them to put them all into an old utility closet, which usually has only space for one persons quarters.While the program by the NZSC has gained them lots of publicity, most of it has been focused of a boardmembers son who managed to get a snazzy role on the bridge while Jack will be stuck below decks. While Jack is an excellent pilot NZSC's spartan and cramped two man SSTO's and Spaceplanes, he doesnt have any training with the Dawnstars much larger cargo ssto's outside of the simulater, his first flight will be carrying passengers and cargo to the Dawnstar from Earth before it leaves.

Oh boy.

This is going to be tough.

I'm letting the applications pile up, so that I can get everyone's backgrounds and create a congruent one from this mashed-up glob.

For example, out of the top of my head, Möbius' background and Sylandro's overlap into common territory. Seung was still in South Korea when 'Cipher' Lewis went to fight in the Circum-Pacific war.

I'm going to do some writing triple pirouette back jump sumersalt and make something cool out of it while retaining to the original submitted backgrounds.

But keep'em comming, as, the most profiles sent before the great mash-up, the easier it will be on me! Razz

NAME: Altagracia Tripp (Nickname: Grace)
AGE: 27
OCUPATION: Engineer, Pathologist
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:
Height: 193.04 cm
Weight: 70 kg
Etnicity: American
Hair/Eyes: Dirty blonde hair, always in a ponytail; Emerald green eyes
Additional Info: (Scars, tattoos, both normal and bioluminescent, body modifications...)
Scar on right arm from elbow to wrist
Looks down on idiots

BACKGROUND: Altagracia, being the daughter of two scientists, was always interested in science. She always liked figuring out how things worked, and how to fix them if they did not work correctly. She later started building advanced military and space vehicles for private firms. Altagracia developed a virus that when exposed to, would kill the host practically instantly. She tried to present this to the military, but they rejected the idea. She later joined the Air Force, where she found her way into the space program. From there, Altagracia found an invitation in her messages asking for her to join the crew of an interstellar expedition known as the Dawn Star. She quickly accepted, and this brings us up to the current storyline. (Right...? Also, sorry for horrible backstory. This is my first time doing something like this.)

NAME: Marcus Johnson
AGE: 34
OCCUPATION: Head of Security
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Height:6'1
  • Weight: 178lbs (80.74kg)
  • Ethnicity: Caucasian
  • Hair/Eyes: Short black hair and brown eyes.
  • Additional Info: Imposing, social, occasionally abrasive and sarcastic. He has a slight yet noticeable limp.

BACKGROUND:

Marcus was born in the midwestern United States, where he lived a relatively normal life. He excelled in school, and eventually attained a scholarship and degree in history from a prestigious college. However, what truly interested him were the great battles, tactics and commanders of the past, and so, staring down life as a professor or a history teacher, he instead opted to join the police forces. Smart and calm, he diligently rose through the ranks and eventually ended up a SWAT captain, a job cut short after several years when he took a shotgun blast to the leg at point-blank.

Once he recovered, Marcus spent several years doing freelance mercenary work throughout the Middle East and Africa  before being invited to run security on the Dawnstar, a job which he readily accepted.

NAME: James Tanner
AGE: 37
OCUPATION: Chief Engineer
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:

Height: 1.84m
Weight: 72kg
Ethnicity: White, Western European descent
Hair/Eyes: Short black hair, receding somewhat and kept tidy. Green eyes.
Additional Info: Small, round scar just below left eye.

BACKGROUND:
Born in Northern Ireland, smart, became interested in engineering in secondary school, studied and completed MEng in Engineering at Jordanstown University, later worked as an engineer in the design of the reaction engines on the Dawn Star. When they needed somebody to keep the engines working on the trip, he was selected and trained as an astronaut by the JSA. Taught how most everything in the ship functioned, including the Alcubierre Drive.
Apart from being a particularly intelligent and lucky engineer, he's not notable. He's not a superman, or a war veteran from Spess 'Nam, or a supergenius. He's just a guy who knows how the ship works and was lucky enough to fit all the requirements for the trip.

Originating from Russia, Alexi decided to join the military as a form of earning his money in the deprived Russian economy. He was enlisted for Military Policing duties, and was permanently stationed in an Air Force Base. Slowly working his way up the ranks, he became second in command for the area at the young age of 36. As the Dawn Star's planning reached Russia, he was selected as security officer for the ship, and part of Russia's small contribution to the program. Being an Air Force officer, the correct training facilities were easily accessable, and the training process was swift, and precise. Alexi passed with flying colours.

EDIT: Delta stole my position! Nah, it's k.

BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!

NAME: Sigurrós "D.C." Stefansdottir
AGE: 29
OCCUPATION: Physicist
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:
-Height: 1.8 meters
-Weight: 68.9 kilograms
-Hair/Eyes: Black/light blue
-Ethnicity: Nordic (Fenno-Icelandic)
-Additional Info: Speaks rarely, prefers speaking Icelandic and Finnish.

BIOGRAPHY
Sigurrós Stefansdottir was born in Kópavogur, Iceland, in 2086 to parents she remembers very little of, as she was placed in foster care at age three. Raised by another family, she lived a relatively normal life, graduating from the University of Iceland at 25 with a Ph.D. in Quantum Physics. After working at the university's Physics division for a year, she moved to Oulu, Finland and worked at that university's Physics department for two more, before being contacted by the Dawn Star mission planners to serve as a physicist. She decided that this would be a good step up, and accepted the offer. Now, after about a year of astronaut training, D.C. will finally go.

Cool guys always arrive late, GAB.

NAME: Francis "Ziggy" Duke
AGE: 39
OCCUPATION: Psichiatrist, Expedition Therapist
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:
-Height: 1.93 meters
-Weight: 89.9 kilograms
-Hair/Eyes: Dark brown/Green
-Ethnicity: Some place warm
-Additional Info: Left pupil permanently dilated, general clumsiness and apparently uninterested in the surrounding world.

BIOGRAPHY
Francis' family lived in the immense expanses of the american heartland, growing the food for a whole nation, conducting a life of simple pleasures, following the Lord's word and never complaining about anything. It clearly was enough to drive anybody without a natural occurred lobothomy mad.

After a quite turbulent younghood (his left eye still shows the result of a well landed jab by an otherwise thick as a brick farmer) he decided to flip the middle finger at the postcard community he lived in, and to seek intellectual enlightment in the halls of the New York University. Enrolling in the Medicine faculty, he found pretty soon, that lack of compassion and disgust for the sick people were a major impedment to his career, so he opted for a psichiatric specialization, in the hope to earn his money without having to look at bad cases of hemorroids.

After getting his degree with full votes, and finding time to learn a bunch of foreign languages, he walked into NASA headquarters, asking for a work. After a briefing on how bureocracy and protocol make the world as we know it livable, he correctly applied for the job and, having obtained it, got appointed for an 8 year assignement as psichiatrist for the Martian colony, raising official praise for his work and dedition, and unofficial praise for his illegal gardening skills.

Back on his home planet, and eager to abandon it as soon as possible, he has enrolled for the Dawn Star crew, which would surely be delighted to know how much he'd care about their wellness and to the good result of the mission.
