Mental characteristics

Personal history

One of the Kaminoan scientists named Mar Jani thought it was a little silly to raise all these diverse, specialized “clones” and not a one of them is female. Humans are sexually diverse for a reason!

 

So, uh, that resulted in me. One very, very unauthorized experiment. I had a full pod, but, well, things happened.

Intellectual Characteristics

Dizzy has some ideas about herself that are not necessarily accurate.
She thinks she's better at ranged combat (especially with her DC-17, wearing her armor) than she is at melee, for example.
Dizzy is very accustomed to a scenario where she is given a goal, and some mission parameters, and then she figures out how to accomplish her goal within those parameters. She functions most naturally when someone on the Banana Republic crew, probably Rushlight or Iwa, figures out what the goal is and then assigns her a role in achieving it.
The problems there are, first, that this crew is really a collection of peers, not a pseudomilitary squad; and that, second, Dizzy took her leave of absence to join the Banana Republic in the first place because she wanted to try out the life of a fully fledged, self-determining, adult-type individual. She's trying to get away from assignments that are about what's best for somebody else's goals.
And to top it off: Greelo is expert at a bounty hunter's career. Rushlight is expert at advising others on how to live their best life. Iwa is expert at forging a path through the complexities of each new day in a lifetime.
Dizzy is expert at dealing with two or more antagonistic collectives trying to overwhelm one another.
She's a former ARC, which means she has training and experience in intense combat; she's a (former?) intelligence operative, which means she has training and experience at creating, detecting, and navigating manipulative patterns which are intended to provide specific targets with a detrimental set of consequences.
Since the Banana Republic crew keeps falling into the middle of other people's antagonistic machinations, Dizzy's habit of waiting for someone else to tell her what to do is ... a problem. For everyone, if she doesn't get her head on straight soon!

Personality Characteristics

Motivation

  1. Find fake!Silar Mins.
  2. Interrogate fake!Silar Mins.
  3. Bring fake!Silar Mins to an unhappy conclusion.
  4. Save My Mom. (Also: everyone else that fake!Silar Mins has been capturing and/or mucking about with.)
  5. Fix up Morticia.
  6. Get married several times over.
  7. My sisters ask me for relationship advice because I Am The Expert.
  8. Never grow old.
    Never retire.
    Keep on flying.

Social

Family Ties

"Mother" / creator: Mar Jani.
Oldest sister: Maia; other sisters, Clea and Yvette. Possibly something lethal happened to Carmen or possibly she decided to be a pilot.

Religious Views

I think I'll be atheist. Yeah, that works. I don't believe in any of that mystic stuff. I'm definitely not a member of the Church of the Force, nope, nohow.

Mannerisms

Dizzy decided, when she first was faced with choices about her personal career and future, that she was going to be one of those gals with a spouse in every port.
Therefore, she randomly proposes to one person whose skills delight her -- usually a person skilled in something Dizzy herself has no idea how to do -- at every major stopover. The proposal usually goes like this:
Dizzy: Are you currently married?
Stranger: . . . No . . . ?
Dizzy: Want to be?
That usually puts a firm end to the conversation, the encounter, the entire association, and possibly to Dizzy's welcome in that settlement.
Dizzy wants someone to think she's worth choosing, "on spec" she says. All the other sisters and several Beskar Aran and Count Razak have all told her that she c_a_n_n_o_t marry somebody she's known for less than a standard day. Most of them elaborated further, knowing how Dizzy is, that she cannot marry somebody she has known for less than a standard year.
Dizzy proposes anyway.
Eighty refusals and counting....
 
Dizzy also changes the last name she's using as the whim strikes her. It might be "Flores", but she has her veterans' pay go into an account for "Dizzy Anfisa", and who knows if she's a Vorysadora? Depends: what day of the week is it and who's asking and what's for supper?

Private War Throwdown

Year: 12731

 

Month: 4

 

Day: 13

  The Bloodsmiths blowing up the back two thirds of their ship did not help them. We figured out they were in their anti-corrosive evac suits and trying to sneak away. Greelo and I go in and secure the four magnetized pirates, and then Iwa and Rushlight come in after to check the Force Cells that take up most of the rest of the space. Zadra follows the two of them as they look through the cargo holds.   Someone will have to search the bunks, too.   We decide we have our specializations distributed wrong: Greelo goes back to join Iwa and Zadra, Rushlight comes up to join me and the prisoners.   I am not a lot of use right now, but I'm annoying!   Investigation leads to the suggestion that an ancient medical base on/near the gas giant, called something like "Shistavaran Plex" (I have to have heard that wrong!), is probably where the Bloodsmith got several of the body parts they stole. That might be where our missing people are being held?   #privatekindofwar

  It would be SO GREAT if we could just, you know, HAVE A PLAN as we get slowly surrounded by unknowns which might be hostile.   So. Great.   Maybe with a little more dignity than me doing my Space Floozy routine.   There's a person in the giant {sort of oversized Mon Cal} type ship. She/it/they? is trying to figure out why the _Banana Republic_ won't talk to "Birhan" or however it's spelled. Maybe they will help with our repair problems? The person talking might be named Zadra.   So we're going to have three of "them" come here to do repairs, because now we have an "alliance" or something?   I need to get ready to do a boarding action on the other unknown ship, because they are "thieves" and we have agreed with our new allies (by "we have agreed" I mean, of course, Rushlight is telling me what is going on, which I appreciate being told! but at the same time, wtf we're in an alliance with total unknowns?) that everything the thieves have taken should be taken back before the thieves get dismantled THAT SHIP IS SQUID SHAPED!!&*(#^*@%!!   no bueno   That should 100 percent be a _Jedi Quest_ thing, not a REAL LIFE thing   and these people are here because VN Ysadora told them this is where they can find that they're looking for   ??   ?   Balls.   Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight, right, right. I need to prep for that boarding action on the unknown-thieves ship. I should definitely include ion attacks of some sort, I think. I have, uh, ion flares? And ... errrrrr ... lemme see if we have anything in stores. My Deece won't do anything ion-related except, maybe, the grenade launcher. Maybe.   I asked around, and my crewmates do not cop to knowing of any ion carbines in our stores. I figured probably we didn't, but it was worth checking.   So. We're going to take all our combat ready personnel, and we're all going to gear up and go with these people we don't know on a boarding action on another ship we don't know, and meanwhile these people are going to be FIXING our allegedly defenseless SHIP. While we're not on it.   Yeah, I'm liking this plan! /sarcasm   #privatekindofwar

  Goes great in caf!   One of my functions on this crew is to make the Priority List for @82fe1bd1-09af-4da9-b4f6-c7bc3f781fc5 to review. So here we have:  
  1. the Banana Republic has taken some damage. We need to scan systems AND visually confirm the hull is secure.
  2. that very very large ship gives @583ce426-3c42-4d06-9a88-b4a64ec6d957 the heebie jeebies.
  3. Who made all this debris? Because this was definitely a very big space battle. Was it Reavers? Creepy Whip Lady says no, but Creepy Whip Lady is not to be considered a primary citation.
  4. Must. Rescue. Iwa's Grandson.
  5. Fresh out of cupcakes.
  6. What's the weird thing going on in the atmosphere of gas giant Monorik? And, importantly, does it impact our mission?
So Iwa is making necessary repairs to her starfighter in case we need to fight, I am doing the hull inspection, Rushlight gave me sugar bombs cereal and is repairing the turret gun, and @159fd248-0dd2-4f68-8ee9-9327de4b1981 is going to check the debris field and the large ship to see if we're in hoodoo up to our foreheads or only up to our thighs.

The Web Of Silar Mins, Chapter 10
Report | May 25, 2019
  • We rescued my Mom.
  • We captured fake!Silar Mins.
  • We almost got et by Creepy Sorta Sith Lord Blood Drinking dude.
  • Iwa maybe adopted a girl who does creepy things with her knives. She is not coming with us, though. She is now setting up the replacement Emperor's Guard system for the Mechis Empire or whatever it's called.
  • I got ENGAGED to Vash the hawt bouncer at Dr. Wontag's clinic, and also I got turned down for my marriage proposal to save Grimes from Rushlight's cousin Mordecai Heller the crime guy. (None of them are coming with us.)
  • Rushlight developed some new mystic-hoodoo stunts.
  • We got /paid/!
 
The Emperor not-Monnk's mother the not-apothecary says that we all owe a debt according to that one Halud "Discord", which is a card that looks kind of like a tarot card, which Greelo is currently carrying around. What? We do? What debt?
 
Inspector Grimes did not say "yes" to my marriage proposal, which was medium-level epic. He said "maybe", which absolutely is not a "yes" which means by default that it's a "no".
Right?
Right??
 
I caught up with Vath thanks to some assistance from Greelo. We work out a rough plan for him to start setting up the wedding, and the honeymoon at the shooting range, and the honeymoon on the south continent on the hunting safari.
 
Now, once we're loaded up into the Banana Republic, we got to go rescue Iwa's grandson from whoever fake!Silar Mins was working for, which in fact turns out to be that Jack LeGrange dude whose nonsense back on Fondor got most of us introduced to each other.
 
We get to Chalcedon system (so we can go to one of the moons of gas giant Monorik) and there's DEBRIS and BUSTED SHIPS and a manta ray shaped vessel that shoots at some pieces and tractors onto an escape pod. Rushlight says those are Nightsister. We're shooting at them! I'll operate the Ion Cannon until we're ready for a boarding action.
Except they're not boarding. They're going for our engines.
Also. There is a giant capital ship full of Reavers. That's not okay.
 
What's even more Not Okay is the four Nightsisters who have boarded the ship!
 
When I wake up in Medbay, I am able to confirm that Rushlight and Greelo have not been mindtwisted by the Nightsisters. Greelo is going toward the Lounge to provide Iwa with backup, while Rushlight and I go check on Mar Jani and then on fake!Silar.
 
And in conclusion: after sending Rushlight the Holopedia entries about the Nightsisters, he starts talking about something like an "A'wakeen" and I just don't know.
 

Characters Interacted With:

  • assorted Nightsisters
  • assorted Reavers
  • Countess Louise de Beaufort
  • Lieutenant / Inspector Landis Grimes
  • Nalina Kanarek
  • Arthren'nis Jarl, outlaw tech, one half of "Silar Mins"
  • Gowri Jarl, outlaw tech, one half of "Silar Mins"
  • Dorad Mesfaw, formerly known as fake!Silar Mins
  • Mar Jani, my Mom, for whom I am baking cupcakes because I'm a good daughter like that
  • Monnk who is now in fact Emperor Jean Something Something
  • Noki Sunfell
  • Jangir Toth, bounty hunter, in charge of the two Squib dudes who actually invented the "Silar Mins" persona before Mesfaw started using it nefariously
  • Vath my smokin' hot Devaronian fiance
  • Dr. Wontag
  •  
  • Morticia still in not-a-shuttle form
  • Vader
  • Dizzy

SAVE MY MOM

Year: 12731
Month: 4
Day: 11

 

{Voice="Chris Potter"}Previously, on X-Men:{/voice}

The Web Of Silar Mins, Chapter 9
Report | May 11, 2019
 

What we have not yet done:

 
  1. Find fake!Silar Mins.
  2. Interrogate fake!Silar Mins.
    Extract information from fake!Silar Mins that will enable us to aid Morticia.
    Extract information from fake!Silar Mins that will enable us to put a stop to all the crap which fake!Silar Mins has been setting into motion.
  3. Bring fake!Silar Mins to an unhappy conclusion.
    Collect numerous bounties on fake!Silar Mins.
  4. Save My Mom, Mar Jani. (Also: everyone else that fake!Silar Mins has been capturing and/or mucking about with.)
  5. Locate and rescue large swathes of the poor population of Calais.
  6. Locate and rescue our client's lady friend and confidant, Zallara Terrek.
  7. Fix up Morticia.
  8. Get married several times over.
  9. My sisters ask me for relationship advice because I Am The Expert.
  10. Never grow old.
    Never retire.
    Keep on flying.
 

But before all that: We need to survive the flight back into Calais. The Gear Grinders have JET PACKS and also GAUSS GUNS and are here to try ot make us crash! I'mma turn on the Shields ((2d+1 Shields on the ambulance))

 

Carmen straight up lied to me, by the way, about how shields and weaponry work together. There's no hole.

 

That one Gear Grinder used a PHASER CANNON on us and now the ambulance has a moon roof. I think we're going to make him swallow it and then find out where he got it and get one for the Deez Nuts later! (Okay, actually we just kill him in the air. But notes for future inquiry!)

 

Pretty soon we got hit with an E-Web from the Magic Bus, the whole ambulance is shutting down dead in midair which is not good for our survivability rate. Patients onboard are the Countess (stunned) and five additional people, I think including the Cardinal who is in a healing coma or some Jedi thing.

 

What IDIOT brought an entire BANDOLIER of thermal dets?!? I dunno but I think it's just atomized all of them. And the Magic Bus.

 

We escape into the sewer system but we know the Lightning Guard will be after us very soon. When we get to Dr. Wontag's hospital, it's smoking and burnt and very quiet. About four hours ago, something amateur but with spooky knives breached the place and created a lot of destruction. And then left a Hunter-Seeker on auto-attack in case Noki, Monnk, and/or Dr. Wontag came out of the room where they barricaded themselves.

 

Mom sent me a message! She needs rescue from "this little man" which would be fake!Silar Mins!

 

Along with giving me my mom's message, bounty hunter Kol Peck gave us the Palace blueprints that the Cardinal wanted him to get to us.

 

We get Monnk into an atmospheric pressure cast system because we are not taking the entire bacta bed while we are on the run. And then we set out for a mothballed dungeon (allegedly!) under the Palace.

 

Cardinal du Pleiss knows how to get in! That's not creepy at all!

 

We go in through a secret entrance into a room that slowly lights itself up. They look like plasma torches. We're on a landing with some repulsor barges on an underground lake.

 

Greelo's barge: me, Red Sparrow, 1 patient, materials being transported

 

Iwa's barge: Noki, Monnk, 2 patients, Makena, and Inspector Grimes.

 

Rushlight's barge: Cardinal du Pleiss, Countess Beaufort, Dr. Wontag, 2 patients

 

We get safely to the "torture area" one floor up from the dungeon, and it is VERY CLEAN up here. AND THE WALL MOVED. And it indicated a path upward when I stated that I am here to ensure that Madame Terrek is well.

 

Up in the main floor of the Palace, we split the party when I get a message via obscure channels: "help me". That's coming from somewhere in the back half of the Palace. Meanwhile up here, Greelo has a track on a squib that might be fake!Silar Mins, and Rushlight senses Enzio and Alon Paul that evil vampire-wannabe guy from a month or two ago.

 
You can't FIND THEM and yet one of them is right there!!!
— Alon Paul to Enzio about Rushlight
 

We've got fake!Emperor, fake!Silar who mentions that he's also doing work for Jack LeGrange, and Son_of_ Pascale Contee. We think they're torturing Zallara Terrek and possibly the mother of the Emperor.

 

Once we have heard enough, we Save My Mom by some excellent wide angle stun and also a kick in the fork of Gerard Contee (since he's blocking stunner fire with his Spooky Knife.

 

Text message conversation

DZ: Grimes?

Grimes: Yes?

DZ: 1. Need downstairs medical supplies in back area of main floor of Palace. For Empress Mother.
2. Sith Lord Knife Guy Alon Paul has been in on an usurper thing.
3. Sith Lord Knife Guy plans on leaving scene of crime. And maybe not whacking our team.
4. Who is in charge of Mists now that Enzio is extremely dead? He was murdered by Sith Lord KNife Guy Alon Paul.

Grimes: If the head of the Mists was killed, they will vanish for a time until they select a new leader
2: but Alon Paul Thoulieu? that's disturbing

DZ: Y'all need Skywalkers on this planet. Meanwhile, get everyone together and get 'em all up here. Including Cardinal.

Grimes: moving people now, we have spoken with Zallara

 

Enzio is dead and Alon Paul left after snacking on Rushlight. Rushlight and Dr. Wontag and Mom need to cure the poison in the Empress Zallara so she can be disconnected from the vines of her handmaiden. And then we need to hurry off the planet, ideally with our prisoner fake!Silar Mins, so we can go to Chalcedon and rescue Iwa's grandson. And rescue Baby Sister Carmen.

 

Characters Interacted With:

  • The "Butcher" of the Boucherie Gourmade de Louis, maybe named Louis? Anyway he was in the Gear Grinders Magic Bus.
  • various Gear Grinders with jet packs!
  • Alon Paul a.k.a. Evil Vampire-Wannabe Guy
  • Gerard Contee son of the late Pascale Contee
  • Enzio of The Mists
  • Cardinal Armand du Pleiss
  • Countess Louise de Beaufort more than halfway transformed into a panther monster person
  • Lieutenant / Inspector Landis Grimes
  • the Red Sparrow and his maybe-civilian friends
  • Makena the hairstylist extraordinaire
  • Dr. Wontag
  • Noki Sunfell
  • Dizzy
  • Greelo
  • Iwa and Chakarr her personal droid
  • Monnk who is actually Eric Terrek the son of Zallara Terrek
  • Rushlight

We aren't getting shot yet!
Telona 10th, 12731

Episode 2.08: Chapter 6 - Epilogue  

Here we are at last at the construction site near where the unconscious Countess got shoved into an aircar by Enzio and his buddy the other kidnapper. It looks like part of what has been cordoned off is right next to The Gilded Rose restaurant.

 

So the question is: does Rushlight need a reservation?

 

Mordecai Heller wants Inspector Grimes gotten off his current case. Or else take some crates to a beach and walk away.

 

You know, I should send a quick message to Grimes about organized crime trying to get him taken off this case. I can do that at the same time I take a look in this roped off bit here.

 
 

SIGNAL LOST

tl dr version of notes for 2.08 chapter 7
Telona 10th, 12731

Gear Grinders is a gang; Garek Fallon is the pilot jerk who swiped Dizzy's DC-17; Church of the Force has a bounty posted on Garek and that bounty was signed/funded by Cardinal Armand du Pleiss

 

That Cardinal now wants Greelo to go after Faris Lem nicknamed "Hookshanks". For 60K in credits. He was a close associate of Pascal Conti who is now dead a la Rushlight. The Cardinal prefers "alive" but "life is unpredictable".
