Velveteen Steele

Velveteen

Magi-tech flight mechanic turned rebel fighter, complete with stolen property, shoulder chips, and the requisite hopes and dreams

Name: 
Carianne "Velveteen" Lenin
Species: 
Human
Age: 
25
Gender: 
Female
Appearance: 

Short, skinny, possibly even bony but not in that 'malnourished waif' adorable way. Okay, maybe "adorable waif" grade skinny, she's only 155cm (5'1") and those blue-green eyes of hers are huge. Light olive skin and long bronze hair, with some freckling under each eye and across her nose. 

She's also usually smudged, sooty, or otherwise shows signs of work. Check her nails, there's guaranteed to be grime under them. Maintaining oil fueled steam boilers, valving, motors and whatnot is filthy work. 

Skills & Abilities: 

Mechanic: Ms. Lenin was formerly employed by the Imperial Air Navy, as a mechanic on board the floating propship carrier zeppelin Imperious Resolve. She has a solid working knowledge of hydraulics, pneumatic systems, steam power, boilers, flight controls and essentially everything else one could imagine a dieselpunk setting mechanic would know. 

Mage: She's also conversant in the arts of tech magic. Control runes, spirit bindings, elemental coercion. If it involves inducing the aetherous energies to reside in living steel and copper, she's at least read a basics manual for it. She'll get better with practice; she'd only freshly made the Flight Line when she joined the rebellion. 

Pilot: It likely won't help in the Multiverse, but she's a qualified pilot on an Imperial Propship, roughly analogous to a helicopter, or giant quadcopter.

Steele

"Liberated" general purpose infantry automaton. Companion to Velveteen, possibly her voice of reason.

Name: 
GPI-442, "Steele"
Species: 
SoulPower Automaton
Age: 
5
Gender: 
None. Accepts masculine attributions
Appearance: 

Steele is a behemoth of a machine, more than twice his companion's height (10.5') and built in the image of a barrel chested, backpack wearing man with long arms and legs. Clearly designed to be quickly assembled, disassembled and field repaired his chassis features few complex curves, many exposed rivets and bolt heads, and plenty of access panels. There are obvious hoses, pipes and bundles of cable running under the armored casing covering his body.

Steele has only three thick fingers and a thumb per hand, though his fingers feature a fourth joint each, and three for his thumbs. His feet are modeled on very big boots.

At one point Steel was probably painted a very handsome Blue and Bronze, though enough of his original paint is chipped and fallen away that it's hard to tell just what pattern would have been painted on him, and he mostly just looks the dull pale metal color of aluminum.
