Jinkan Tatst: Father (deceased) Hanna Lee Tatst: Mother, Born BYE 17
Aerin was an only child. Her father was a small-time engineer and starship mechanic. Aerin's father taught her how to build, repair, and fly ships of many kinds. Her mother was very supportive of them and would often help on projects. One day All three were working on her father's latest and greatest design, a small cruiser for civilian use, when part of the ship's power supply became unstable and exploded. Aerin and her mother barely survived the blast, which killed her father. She was forced to switch bodies to Yamataian, and got custom eyes because she thought they looked cool. After the body switch she took it upon herself to finish her father's ship in his honor. Upon it's completion, she left her mother on Yamatai to seek her fortune. She became a pirate for a short while because it made her forget the grief of her father's death, but this upset her mother and strained their relationship. Not wanting to lose her mother for any reason she decided to do something good with her father's legacy and help the Nepleslian green faction, becoming a privateer for them. Though still not quite on perfect terms with her mother, their relationship is getting better.
Recently, she got together with a couple of her partners with the underworld, and formed a legitimate company; Origin Industries. In the process, she quit the world of war and opted to go the way of her father as a starship designer.
After simply designing became too much of a chore, Aerin longed for the great black sea known as space. taking Personal command of the company's flagship, the SS Raider, she began a search for a crew.
She and The Raider are currently puttering around the core systems, picking up potential crew members and training those who qualified.
In YE 29, Aerin made a trip back to Yamatai. It was there that, with the knowledge that she had completed her father's legacy, and with a new found maturity, Aerin was finally able to come to terms with what had happened that fateful day in her past, and to mend ties with her mother after what she had done. Though Aerin never talks about it, she now enjoys a rejuvenated relationship with her mother, even if it is normally long-distance.
The sheer amount of time and effort it has taken to run a company is starting to play on Aerin; She's somehow managed to start maturing. While at first the woman tried to party her days away when she didn't have any ideas, she now commonly goes through paperwork or does business meetings. Although, wanderlust has not yet been lost. Whenever she can, Aerin has been taking her days off to search the Kikyo sector, both for prospective employees and markets. While out and about though, she still can't seem to get away from business. However, when war struck the Yamatai Star Empire, Miss Tatst's business empire was not unharmed. After being booted from her starting place, Aerin set up camp in her company's new space station, and began to grow the business.
However, she still isn't done doing what she set out to do.
When the Star Army of Yamatai approached Aerin about starting a new space station within the Ketsurui Military sector, the woman jumped on the opportunity. Personally heading to the site of her company's newest asset, she even braved a Mishhu blockade, but, as fortunes would show, her small patrol of ships was not quite enough to make it through. Fortunately, the Unlucky corporate ships were rescued by Star Army vessels, and the trip was able to continue. After a few weeks in the Sector, however, the space station had been established and the CEO grew restless, so once again they braved the Mishhuvurthyar blockade. After another Tense battle, the beleaguered crews of the embattled origin ships were once again rescued by the SAoY. Unfortunately, Aerin's precious flagship, the SS Raider, was heavily damage din the battle. Aerin's unsure if the spaceframe has enough left in it to survive being rebuilt again, but Aerin is hoping to rebuild the first ship she ever made and keep it flying for her company.
Luca Pavone and the ISC phoenix and crew came aboard Dawn station. The rest is history and has been turned into several TV docudramas.
Being an engineer's daughter, Aerin knows her way in and out of a ship's systems. She can easily customize existing systems or build her own. She can also fix ships. She has invested a lot of time into these skills, which ultimately flowered in an ability to design starships of various types.
When Aerin was young her father taught her basic self defense skills, over the years she has expanded her skills and is now proficient at using most common weapons and a few low-end power armors, and she can easily fight in zero-g, a skill learned as a pirate.
Aerin's father taught her how to pilot most kinds of spacecraft. She is capable of standard flying, and a few complex maneuvers, depending on the capability of the ship she is flying. She cannot, however, simply sit in a pilot's chair and fly any ship, rather she must take the time to figure out the controls first.
Aerin received basic mathematics training, to including up to algebra and trigonometry. She is very skilled in Geometry and uses her skills to help her design starships. She can mathematically figure out how much stress a given joint will take when loaded, and can use this knowledge to properly support pieces of a structure.
Aerin is familiar with the communications systems in her ship and is able to communicate with most other characters fluently. She is very fluent in Trade, but knows no Yamataian whatsoever. Her orders are sometimes ignored due to her carefree attitude, and her tendency to chat with the people she is giving orders to.
Aerin is a great dancer… in her own mind. Just don't tell her she sucks or some of the residual pirate might come out.
Aerin has studied Astronavigation and is capable of calculating courses, both STL and FTL, with the help of a ship's computer. She has a working knowledge of the galaxy, and can navigate with only a starmap and major 'landmarks', though this is nowhere near accurate enough for FTL travel.
Aerin Tatst is currently a CEO of Origin Industries. She receives a weekly salary of 1500 KS per week.
