Spaceflight technician Tam once dreamt of working in orbit and living among the stars. This dream was shattered in a mechanical accident she was deemed to be at fault in, to which the corporation demanded full reimbursement. Unwilling to sign her life away to pay the exorbitant fees Tam fled, only to be caught, fined again, and forced into a life of state sanctioned debt slavery. After six years of toil in an electronics production line she had accrued enough ‘debtors credit’ to take on a clandestine mission that might wipe her debt clean. Her handlers, Tri-Carbon Credit Management, sent her on a suicide mission to cleanse the water stations of a sentient bio contaminant, hoping to blame them for the creation of the monstrosities in the ensuing chaos.
Having survived the water treatment massacre Tam desperately attempts to flee Void city. Her handlers are no doubt displeased and are likely working to recapture her, or kill her, and seize the company property she stole; chiefly her space suit, but also her A-11 Thunderbolt ‘less lethal’ electrical discharge weapon system.
Tam is, generally speaking, on edge and prone to fits of panic during her stay at Void. She is used to living in a cramped high tech mega city and this city is alien to her, for example; she’s absolutely convinced the air here in Void is so bad it’s poisonous to her. (No, she’s not willing to test it.) If one were to hold conversation with her she’d probably be super curious as to what life is like here and try to get to know people and make friends; something she’s desperately lacking.
