Meet The Crew

Meet the Crew of the Ghost – Cynthia

SPOILERS AHEAD if you’re just joining the adventures of the crew of the Ghost. You’ve been warned. Cynthia joins the crew after a few adventures. She doesn’t immediately mesh but quickly realizes that the crew of the Ghost has something she’s never had. Family. She grew up trained to be an assassin, then found herself working for a minor crime lord. Through acquisitions and mergers (the violent kind, I mean, crime bosses here) she ends up a lieutenant for Xarrix, head of one of the most powerful criminal organizations in the GC. She’s Tygran, a race that’s part of the Galactic Commonwealth. The Tygran people are well-traveled and progressive, having established civil liberties and equal rights for droids. I wasn’t sure about Cynthia at first. I knew she’d show up…

Meet the Crew of the Ghost – Gabe

GBE-102002 (Gabe to his friends) starts out as an engineering bot. Designed to spend his entire existence in an engineering department. Gabe goes through some significant changes as the series progresses (no spoilers!) He’s often the straight man or foil for the team. Wil wasn’t initially on board but has quickly come to consider Gabe one of his best friends. He’s straight-forward and blunt and rarely cares to get involved with, as he puts it, “tedious banter”. Dan really captured Gabe here. He’s constantly tinkering and most at home in the engineering spaces of the Ghost. Most of the time the crew interacts with him via the ship’s intercom. Gabe can be tough to write since he stays in engineering most of the time, he’s not around for the discussions…

Meet the Crew of the Ghost – Maxim

Maxim (Also no last name because, Peacekeepers) Maxim is the tactical officer aboard the Ghost. He’s Zephyr’s Significant other and the team stoic. Like serious stoic. As a Peackeeper his last assignment was a intelligence analyst and operative. Maxim is fun to write because he is truly that strong and silent type, but he’s incredibly competent. When he speaks the team listens and takes note. He also is a massive fan of bacon. Once Dan Voltz did an amazing job at capturing the crew!

Meet the crew of the Ghost – Zephyr

Meet Zephyr (No last name, because Peacekeepers). Zephyr is the First Officer on the Ghost. She pretty much just assumed the role after her and Maxim were brought aboard the Ghost by Wil. She also tends to be the responsible one when compared to the rest of the crew. She’s Palorian, a race with very aggressive and warlike tendencies that early on is “helped” by the Tarsi, to find a less destructive outlet for their militaristic tendencies.   I’m really pleased with how well she came out. Her no-nonsense attitude seems to come out in her face really well. I’ve been hesitant to have the crew put to paper (or screen) because characters always look one in our heads, and to most readers, it’s never the same. I have to…
