[Sci-Fi] Regency Medium Fighter 003, "Badger" Class

The Badger is a mainstay of the Regency Fleet due to its efficient armament and solid defensive capability. As it may easily illuminate the battlefield in a spray of blaster-fire, many heavy fighters prefer not to engage the Badger head-on in a fair skirmish. However, its extremely high cost makes it a tempting target for fire-teams and gunships. Its cost of replacement is well known to enemies of the Regency Government. Similarly, its cost makes the Badger a rarity among pirates and mercenaries who find it nearly impossible to purchase, and difficult to repair.

[Scifi/Action] Lyra Bannon

Born to a Noble Family, Lyra Bannon was not content to live the life of another idle dilettante. She knew quite well that under the rule of the Regency, her Noble birth would provide her little more than idle pleasures under the constant, watchful eye of the government. Bright and driven, she found another path. She trained at the Imperial Medical College, and her high exam scores (as well as a large donation from her wealthy family) drew the eyes of members of the elite Order of Galen.

The Order is composed of rigorously educated physicians who are trained to work in battlefield conditions. They are considered the elite among war-time medics, and few persons, within The Regency, or outside its bounds and influence, would harm one of the Order of Galen. Their oaths are such that they will treat anyone who needs tending, from the lowest miscreant to an emperor himself. Lyra quickly grew weary of the horrors of war, but relished the challenges and importance of her job. She has seen first hand the violence which can be wrought by one man against another, and wants little part of it.

Now, entering her thirtieth year, she is eligible to join the highest ranks of Order of Galen. To that end, she has struck out on her own, to gain in both experience and reputation.
