Build and Skin Colour: Bastion is very tall and muscular. She is grand even for a Fyunnen. Still not reaching the greatest of sizes, but still really big. She has strong and well built muscles on her body. Her shoulders are broad and her belly has well trained abdominal muscles. She still keeps enough femininity. As most fyunnen females she has large, well shaped breasts. As for her skin colour, she is very pale and alabaster coloured.
Eyes and Facial Features: Mars has large, round, blue eyes with tiny wrinkles from laughter. Her nose is rather large, with roman features, but also narrow. She has thin rosey lips, which she ussualy covers with black lipstick.
Hair Colour and Style: As any other lorath, Bastion has completely white hair. As she did not managed to gain very high in ranking, it is also not very long. She cuts it short on the sides and in the back and leaves too long bangs. She colours her hair bright orange.
Distinguishing Features: On several places on her body are scars from cuts and wounds taken in training. Nothing very massive though and everything usually covered up by clothing.
Cybernetics: Bastion has several cybernetic enhancements. Namely neural interface, metallic skeleton, enhanced muscles. Important thing to mention is special custom made cybernetics she got. It is a wide, heavy belt with two slender mechanical arms attached to it. This belt can either be put straight on her body or over her armour. She controls the arms via the neural interface. Arms themselves can lift easily everything up 5 kilograms each. Anything above them strains them and they should not lift anything above ten kilograms. The arms reach is comparable to regular arm of a nepleslian. On the hand there are only two fingers and opposable thumb. Arms are mostly used for reloading, handling small equipment or tossing a grenade if needed. They do not have enough strength to wrestle or punch.
Personality: Bastion is a warrior first and foremost. She lives by honing her skills, whether it is her blade or her marksmanship she values those skills. She also believes in such values as honour and courage. Bastion is still a soldier though and she is ready to follow orders.
Her years as an instructor made her look at others and evaluate their skills. She than tries to give them advice and help them get better. This was instilled into her and she has trouble suppressing this. When she teaches someone she is firm at first. She is fair though and does not chew out her pupil unless she really has to. Mars believes that constant shouting never helped anyone to learn better.
Her life experience lead her to believe that hate never brought anything good to anyone. Even though she is a warrior and soldier she believes that hatred brings doom to people and societies. Race wars are probably one of the most horrible one. That leads to her being unsure about treatment of helashio and she is torn over the notion of slavery, not sure if it is wrong or not.
In combat Mars is fearless and well composed. She does not panic and controls her anger well. That said she can also let the anger out and use it as drive, but she tends to control herself most of the time.
After spending years only training herself and other Mars now values any chance to unwind. She likes alcoholic beverages, movies, books or sports. She has weak sport for small cuddly animals as she was never allowed to own one. That lead her to getting a dog, one of the lazy, cuddly nepleslian kinds called bulldog. Her other passion are sweats as she was never allowed to eat those as child.
When in contact in others she is mostly kind and has smile on her face. She enjoy company of other people and cares for her crew-mates. She does not seek out relationships though, she believes that no one would want a woman with such low standing as her. At least not anyone she could really bring into her clan.
Clan Aresian. Their emblem is a tower with shield and two blades crossed over it. Bastion's aunt 'Gauntlet' leads the clan. Bastion's mum Zyra 'Fort' Aresian has still power within the clan though as she is on good terms with Gauntlet. Bastion's father Marsian 'Nail' Aresian died a warrior death in the battle of Lor. Bastion has one older brother Marek “Longarm” Aresian who is a ship captain in LSDF. Mars also has two younger sisters who do not serve the matriarchy in an official capacity yet.
Bastion was born on planet Lor and made quite a commotion over the time. Apart from her talent for physical activities she got to be almost as tall as her father by age of ten and quickly grew taller then then the rest of her family. It made her older bully dislike her a little, since she was favored over him very often. Not to mention that the leader of the clan, Bastion's aunt was a little jealous that her sister had such a physically gifted daughter, while she had only two boys.
Since Bastion often trained with her aunt Gauntlet she received quite a tough treatment. Lots of shouting was included, which made Bastion hate shouting as a mean to get things done. Her mother still told her to take it with raised head and proudly. Bastion's mother was luckily seconds most important person in the clan which tied Gauntlet's hands. Over the time Bastion learned to work with her aunt and they finally grew a bond of sorts, mainly thanks to her aunt giving birth to healthy girl which helped get over her petty jealousy.
After celebrating her 18th birthday it was time for Bastion to join the Lorath Self-Defense Force. Her extensive training under Gauntlet who was military veteran made her exceed all the expectations during the basic training. She was picked out to become combat instructor herself.
Starting as an assistant she climbed up and was considered for a position of instructor. Yamatai showed up around that time, but it all blew over Bastion's head as she had enough things to focus on. At that time she was happy.
Then the battle of Lor happened. Her father died fighting and she herself got into combat on the surface. She was lucky enough to survive as SMX dropped a moon on planets surface. Many were not so lucky. Her emotions stirred she wished to get back into fight and protect the Matriarchy actively.
Year and some months later her wish finally came through and she got posted on a ship. They mostly did regular patrols and only got to see a minimal combat with pirates. United Outer colonies formed then and Lorath followed them breaking off the Yamatai Star Empire. Unlike many others Bastion herself did not hate Yamatai really.
Those who felt otherwise were a problem though. On one of the patrols their ship found a yamataian ship near the borders and ship's XO demanded it being attacked. Captain of the ship declined, saying it might lead to act of war. XO was very angry man who lost most of his family on Lor and blamed Yamatai for bringing SMX attack on the Lorath. The freespacer genocide that happened same year led him to believe that Yamataians only deserved death. In another words he went mad. Being a charismatic leader he managed to get many member of the crew on his side. Mostly member for infantry.
Bastion herself did not care much about Yamatai. She believed there is nothing like a nice and good nation. Her mother always said to her that soldier should not stick her nose into politics. The XO obviously did not care for such things. He did something no one see coming. A mutiny. Followed by many members of the infantry he took control of the bridge and locked captain up.
The rest of the crew did not stand for it. Bastion, her Master Sergeant and other non-infantry crew fought back to get the control back into hands on the captain. It was bloody fight, but they won. They freed the captain and returned home.
Such thing happening was of course unheard off. The brass could not let such a thing get out as more than rumors. That would be troublesome for the morale and probably brought more passion to any anti-yamataian movement, rather than suppress them. They decided to make it a hush-hush. Official statement was that the ship was attacked by pirates. The ship crew was assigned to several unimportant spots and Captain got an early retirement.
Bastion herself was sent LSDF Akahar. Ship known as gravedigger amongst the navy. It was a post where no one cared what she does or tells. A place where you put a soldier if you need her somewhere where she could not make trouble.
During exploration of lost ship Mok'ro, Mars and her team engaged in fight with volatile alien life form. They found a surivor on the ship, its captain named Korro. The life form was some sort of metallic life form that could infect technology an living being. During the exploration, teams medic Merril was infected.
Mars and the team evacuated the ship, but Merrils state got worse and she escaped in the Akahar's hangar along with Korro who proved to be nfected as well. Mars proceeded to hunt both of them.
Meanwhile a new batch of crewmembers arrived on the ship just as the situation arrised. The ship went into lockdown and crew armed themselves and locked on the bridge. Korrow killed Kam'bekek another crewmember and the crew along with Mars went there to finish her.
They trapeped Korro in an airlock and when it opened they engaged in a fight. Mars attacked the monster, but Chaplain who was among new crewmembers ordered airlock sealed and fired anti-matter grenade inside. The doors locked before Mars could get out and she was killed.
Fyunnens must be skilled in advanced hand-to-hand tactics, melee weapon tactics, and various forms of martial arts. Mars herself took additional close combat training under her aunt who is a veteran and saw a lot of combat. She also taught others and by now mastered her body and blades. She is also good marksman and Power Armour operator.
Fyunnens must be trained to be able to handle their own home affairs, this includes preparing their own meals, handling their own laundry, providing for their children, and keeping their living space clean and efficient. Additional training in domestic affairs is encouraged for male members of the Lorath Fyunnen House and for female members that are assigned to permanent command positions or other administrative positions.
Fyunnens must be trained in the workings of a leadership role; they must be able to command individuals on a one on one level, or be able to lead a full company if needed. This involves being able to converse with large groups, gathering intelligence, being able to seek out a diplomatic solution if it is apparent that it is needed for survival, and being able to direct their subordinates out of a dangerous tactical position.
Fyunnens must be trained for individual survival, they must be able to find their own food and water, be able to construct makeshift weapons, navigate by use of landmarks and stars overhead that are visible, construct shelters, signal for assistance, and conceal their positions. Additional training is encouraged.
Bastion was taught two Lorath dialects. She mainly uses a modern lorath Ly'thir, but her mother and aunt insisted on learning the Ci'kesa, the formal dialect too. Expect from that Bastion speaks fluent Nepleslian and knows enough Yamataian to order a beer or ask someone to surrender nicely. She is competent in suing Lorath based communication technology and devices. She knows also a little about jamming and tracing radio-waves.
Bastion spend several years teaching and training others. She knows how to work with pupils and knows the trick to teach them a proper way to fight or shoot a weapon. Mars learned how to get through to the pupil and want him to learn, see what he is good or bad at and focus on those parts.
Mars has well trained body, she works out a lot. Her body is agile and in great shape. She know how to acrobatics and has completely control over her body. Mars also know how to move well in zero G and in space. She has enough knowledge and experience in free-running.
