Nezia T'Lura, Asari C-Sec Detective

The Boy and I are planning a Mass Effect campaign soon, using the mythic Game Master Emulator so that we can both play.  He's on a big time Mass Effect kick right now, so this should be exciting.  GURPS seems to be perfect for the setting.  Here is my character:

Name: Nezia T'Lura     Race: Asari     Age: 262

Nezia is a C-Sec Detective on the Citadel.  Her Turian father, a C-Sec patrol officer, died when she was young, and she swore to devote her life to his calling.  However, her first tour of duty in the patrol ended disastrously, resulting in the loss of the patrol vessel and all other crew.  Nezia still has flashbacks from the pirate attack, and has related PTS that makes her space sick in zero-G.

After recovery, Nezia transferred to the detective unit, where she felt she could be more effective.  She disliked working undercover, where she was forced to lie and break the law on occasion.  Analysis work behind a desk was closer to her heart, but with Nazia's powerful biotic telekinesis abilities (inherited from her commando mother,) the department heads put her out in the field, apprehending criminals as much as possible.

She now works closely with Customs, helping to thwart smugglers, drug dealers, and pirates - albeit in a different way that the Patrol.  While strictly by-the-book, Nezia tries to make the lives of known pirates as difficult as possible - which has earned her the hatred of a few notable pirates - and a price on her head.  She doesn't really care.

Imagine it full of 50 arboreal kobolds, just before the magic-user casts sleep on it . . .

One of the things about drawing every day is that I have no idea how I am doing.  One second I think I am doing good, the next second I think I suck - and it flip flops all over the place.  I swear, drawing is one of the more wacko things I think I've ever chosen to do.  And on top of that, I'm all ADHD about it, and can't focus one one thing to draw for more than a day.  I've got all these half baked projects and plans - big and small - that lay strewn about my sketchbook and head.  I mean, it seems one way to guarantee I'll never do something is to decide I'll do it.

But, I keep drawing, so that is something.
