Captain Kara Black
Life in the Vanguard isn’t like some soft Core-world military duty. You need to be able to adapt, prevail, and survive. A Vanguard Captain can do that, and keep a cool enough head to decide when sacrifices are necessary, when risks need to be taken, and when it’s time to stand on the line and hold firm. My company, they trust me. I’ve served on this Troopship for nearly a decade. We’ve fought colonial rebels, pirates, black market smugglers. We have handled some rough chop together. We’ve saved each other’s lives countless times. Now we’re ten parsecs deep into the Edge worlds. We are the only Vanguard troopship in spitting distance. And we are looking down the barrel of a full blown slave rebellion. Look. I may not have volunteered for the promotion, but the rank is mine now. I’m going to use it.
