Physical Characteristics

  • Height: 5' 1/2โ€ (153.67 cm)
  • Mass: 91 lbs (41.28 KG)
  • Measurements:

Build and Skin Color: Thalath's skin is chalk white in colour as is common amoung a large portion of the Plebeian population. In build she has almost no fat to her body and has musculature that would best be described as 'sinewy'. Her shoulders are too wide for the width of her chest and size of her body and she overall gives off the impression of a having a body stunted from improper development

Eyes and Facial Features: Thalath's face is angular with sharp features. Increased quality of living has lessened the gauntness of her features but traces of the malnutrition and stress of her childhood and early adolescence linger particularly around her eyes. She has large, bright orange eyes that are modestly slanted.

Ears: Thalath has average sized ears that tilt back against her head and have connected lobes.

Hair Color and Style: Thalath's hair is brown and is kept in a tail flat against her neck and falls to just between her shoulder blades. Her bangs are eye level in length and are styled to frame the sides of her face.

Distinguishing Features: Thalath has a set of small black wings. They are not large or strong enough to have any actual use but are still very mobile and capable of proper social expression. The feathers are drab in colour and have no natural luster but are otherwise clean and well kept. Thalath also has a long burn scar running from just below her elbow to across her wrist along the top of her right arm.

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Thalath is a very action driven person and demands of herself a level of work and dedication toward whatever job is at hand that often pushes her over the edge of biological limitations. Raised as all Plebeians of her generation were she has a deeply ingrained respect, but this view has been somewhat shaken by her recent loss of faith in the direction that her home country decided to pursue. She is prone to constructing profiles of people based off their actions and observations of their habits and body language even if she has never spoken to the person in question.

  • Likes: Working, woodwind instruments, waking up early, taking apart machines, explosives.
  • Dislikes: Rich food, undeserved rewards, scofflaws, overly ordered living spaces, being slowed down.
  • Goals: To disconnect herself from the past.



Thalath's parents were Nikolaos and Eleni Zaim. Nikolaos died during the Third Elysian War and Eleni, despite her age, transferred into a Caelisolan body and is still alive.


Thalath Zaim was born in YE 07 on what was at the time Geshrintall. Being born during the final year of the first War with Yamatai and growing up during the second and third wars Thalath had an uneasy childhood marked by harsh conditions and being surrounded by a populace that was defeated at large at every corner. Despite this, her memories of childhood are not all bad as while her parents worked hard for the betterment of the Empire during bitter times they were both active in her life when she was young and did the best they could do with the meagre supplies available to the population at large.

Her first real shock came to her when her father left the family on the outset of the Third Elysian War out of outrage and desperation in wake of the murder of the Emperor. With Nikolaos's death during the conflict and the forced exodus from her birth world Thalath became more emotionally withdrawn and self-critical. When the Fourth Elysian War broke out Thalath was sixteen and worked for the advancement of the empire as a mechanic and in explosives manufacturing. The two year war saw the young Plebeian advance into real adulthood and gave her a variety of experience with the maintenance and upkeep of military equipment and the composition and handling of demolitions.

Thalath left the Elysian Celestial Empire during YE 30 due to personal opposition to the Caelisolan project and a subsequent feeling of betrayal due to the erasure of her social class.

Sometime between YE 30 and YE 36 Thalath Zaim became an employee of Origin Industries and worked using the Industrial Class Power Frame the Oban. Having shown the needed aptitude and following repeated requests for a more demanding work schedule Intern Zaim was transferred to the newly reconstituted experimental mecha division of Origin Industries as crew of the OIF Atuan III.
