Nicole could almost be called petite, but isn't quite there. Her… assets, while not small by any means, aren't quite as big as most women's, a fact she often resents. None the less, she is shapely and lithe. A religious dedication to physical fitness keeps her body trim and toned. Her skin is a dark olive, which causes her bright, green eyes to stand out even more. Her face is heart-shaped, with full, red lips. She cuts her black, straight hair into a messy, chin-length bob cut which sweeps to the right and always has a few stray locks falling into her eyes.
Personality: Tigerish, fiery, and passionate are some words that come to mind when describing Nicole. She's what some would call a loose cannon. She's got a hell of a temper, and is quick to come to blows when someone sets her off. She's also fiercely independent, which causes her to have trouble working with others, or asking for help when she needs it.
This hazardous exterior is used to hide several underlying fears and insecurities. For starters, she is obsessed with her self image. She works out frequently, and rarely eats junk food. This is due to a fear of becoming like her father, who was severely overweight and died from diabetes years before. As mentioned before, she's also insecure with her development, sometimes believing herself inferior to other women.
Growing up poor, Nicole is also extremely tight with her money, and very hesitant to spend even a cent of it.
Lastly, on a more positive note, Nicole's own lack of a mother causes her to act as a sort of mother figure to those closest to her, with said persons being her “cubs”, and her taking on the role of the protective “mother-tiger”.
Don't take this to mean that Nicole can't function in a social setting. The opposite is true. She flourishes in positive interactions with others, being very sociable, outgoing, and cheerful. She can also be very professional and curt when the situation calls for it.
Let it also be known that Nicole can become very flirtatious should she want to. Whether it's towards girls or guys depends entirely on her mood that day.
Jayden is extremely capable in the use of all communication systems employed by the Star Military of the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia both in combat and non-combat situations. He is able to issue and receive orders effectively under stress without faltering. Due to being raised in a bilingual house Jayden is fluent in Trade (language) and Yamataigo (邪馬台語). During college he took courses giving him some knowledge of Ly'thir. He is a decent public speaker when the need arises, though it remains a marginally used skill since graduating from the War College of the Imperium.
Having formal training from his time in ROTC as well as his years of service as an officer of the Nepleslia Star Navy, Jayden's ability to lead tends to be more by the book. He understands the value of morale and the integrity of his unit, and while he should be able to inspire those under his command or be capable of clearly stating orders to get the best results possible for the task assigned, however Jayden's lack of interpersonal skills prevent him from being as effective as he would like to be. Jayden is not a physically imposing figure like many command level officers of the Star Military of the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia, however, he is the type to lead by example and therefore expects those under his charge to do as he would.
As expected of Starfighter Pilots in the NSN as well as Marine Cavalry, Jayden is proficient with Power Armor use as well as most Marine weapons. While not quite to the level of more well trained Marines, Jayden is able to hold his own in a number of Nepleslian Power Armors.
Jayden has proven himself to be an Ace level Starfighter Pilot, with expert level knowledge of the operations of all Nepleslian fightercraft and their systems as well as . As such, Jayden is also cleared to pilot experimental and prototype fightercraft and starfighter systems.
Much of Jayden's studies have revolved around grooming him for service within the NSN, reinforced by his time at the War College of the Imperium and continued education while in active service. As one of the youngest command level officers within the NSN, Jayden displays a greater than average knowledge of the combined workings of the Star Military of the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia.
Between his pre-military studies, his War College course work, and his continued education during active service, Jayden has a Master's degree in Starship Engineering with a primary focus area in Starfighter systems.
With his intimate knowledge of all currently fielded fightercraft by the Star Military of the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia, Jayden is highly proficient in maintaining and repairing starfighter systems and components as needed provided the proper tools are available.
Originally taken up as a hobby during his youth, Jayden found his love of computers made his R&D work exponentially easier and more efficient. He is capable with any computer system currently fielded by the Star Military of the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia, easily able to access, create, and modify files and information.
