Captain Livara Anne Satin (a.k.a. Queen Bee)
General Physical Condition
Livara is built for long-distance running, relying on her auto-armor to boost her strength when combat arises. While she is considered conventionally beautiful by many residents of Hive City, Livara has sacrificed some of that beauty in the name of her intellect. Long nights of research and the rigors of the dieseltech workshop environment has left her with behavioral insomnia, which manifests in perpetually tired eyes and loosened grooming standards. The harsh chemicals which have seeped past her work gloves over the years have left her hands chapped and dehydrated.
Livara has a scar on her left cheekbone, which she usually keeps conceals with makeup, from an old accident in the Royals auto-armor workshop.
While she fights as though her right hand is her dominant hand, Livara is effectively ambidexterous in the lab or workshop.
Livara Satin graduated from the Voxelia Academy of Sciences in 9990 with a degree in dieseltech engineering. She went on to double the accomplishment in 9992 with a degree in material science. Having always had a love for chemistry, Livara had originally expected to become a food scientist for the local apiary industry before she realized that engineering had better earning potential.
After numerous failed attempts to find employment with Silkenvault Combat Solutions, Ltd., Livara turned to the local auto-armor mercenary crew in her home town of Hive City, offering her services as a mechanic. Once hired, it was quickly discovered by the crew that Livara was more diligent, more intelligent, and a better contract negotiator than the crew's then-current captain, leading to her meteoric rise through the ranks. As of 9998, Livara became the captain of the crew and rebranded it as the ever-flamboyant Hive City Royals, a position which she holds to this day.
Virtues & Personality perks
Livara is brilliant, attractive, and has a flair for dramatic entrances. She possesses an acute understanding of the material and technological requirements of a given action, allowing her to outmaneuver field tacticians without such acumen. This understanding also extends to financial matters, making her a shrewd negotiator despite her sometimes clumsy phrasing. Though she is motivated by prestige, she isn't motivated by greed, putting the needs of her crew over her own comfort when business is slow.
Vices & Personality flaws
Livara's skill at negotiation derives from her greatest flaw: she projects an air of being the superior person for a job because she believes she is superior to most other human beings. Livara believes that she is the smartest and most competent person in the room, deserving of only respect and admiration. She is generally only open to other interpretations of a situation from 'experts' in their field (i.e. her lieutenants in matters of combat), often acting with condescension towards anyone else. While this overwrought sense of self-worth has brought many valuable service contracts to the Hive City Royals, it has left her lonely in her personal life, as many prospective friends or partners are repelled by her apparent egotism. Experience is gradually softening her attitude, making these flaws less serious over time, as she increasingly finds herself in situations where neither her intellect nor her auto-armored fist can set things to right.
Livara is a regular attendee of services at the Church of the Unexpected. Her personal faith leads Livara to lean towards the cult of Aquardion more than those of the other Gods of Irony.
One summer night in 9997, Livara Satin and Arxid Sagan were both at a bar in Intercostia and wound up meeting each-other amidst the haze of alcohol intoxication. Struck by one another's wits, the pair had a brief romantic involvement before Livara discovered who Arxid was and what he did for a living, leading the two to split on awkward terms.
While Arxid and Livara belong to political ideologies which would usually put them at cross-purposes to one another, the pair are on a similar intellectual level, share a history of military discipline, and can commiserate over the trials of being in leadership roles. The situation is more awkward for Arxid, since, though he distrusts Voxelia as a whole, High Rostran culture regards a "secret romance" like the kind he and Livara once shared to be the most intense romance of all; Rostran couples are considered informally engaged when their relationship becomes a matter of common public knowledge.
To the current day, Livara insists that she only found Arxid attractive because her inhibitions were decreased that night, while Arxid insists that he would never have been interested in someone who was so patriotic to the Voxelian cause. Nevertheless, despite their vigorous protestations the the contrary, observers from Parasol Private Holdings and the Hive City Royals note that the two argue like an old married couple whenever thrust together by professional obligations.
Wealth & Financial state
Livara has acquired the lease for the Hive City Royals' home base over the course of her career with them. She draws extra shares as the leader of the mercenary crew, but she uses these pay for operational overhead.
