She’s been drawing a salary from the Legion since she was 16, and with cheap living courtesy of the Legion and Aeon Trinity it’s built up over the years into a comfortable pot of savings
The Qin never trade or give away their weaponry. Never. If you ask Mel where she got her very peculiar looking and very lethal flechette pistol, she’ll just smile. Very few people get close enough to it to discover that no matter how they try, they cannot seem to get it to fire; or that there’s a curious tickling sensation in their mind that they just lack the capacity to respond to
She’s loud, outspoken, confrontational and always in trouble – most people in Proteus Division know who she is
Translation assignments for Phoenix Squadron have led Mel into a reasonable amount of contact with the Qin embassy and an easy-going friendship with Rec!tu, a Qin with no apparent function except to drift around and observe humanity.
