Captain Roberts, on the bridge of the USS Miranda
|Commands held||USS Miranda|
(Primary Writer: ClassicDrogn )
Former Australian Air Force jet pilot, retired on disability due to to a motorcycle accident that caused her right arm to be amputated above the elbow. Circa SOS-Con she's the captain of the United-Earth Star Ship Miranda, just leaving the second-to-last star system the ship will be able to explore before turning back for the two year trip to Sol.
Captain April looks remarkably like an Andorian save for the lack of antennae, after a biomod that (successfully) attempted to give her the regenerative healing ability of a horseshoe crab. Her blood is bright, sky blue, with a copper base rather than iron, requiring some allowances in her diet but nothing major as long as it's planned ahead of time. Just having sashimi wrapped in seaweed fairly often will take care of it, though all too often on the five year trip away from the oceans of Earth she's had to make do with supplement pills. Her skin is also tinted that way instead of pink as a result, and the blood clots essentially immediately if she's cut.
Generally relaxed and a bit of a joker, April is something of a peacenik for the common image of a military person. She'll look and look hard look hard for any peaceful solution before a violent one. A life-long affinity for science fiction and space exploration also fostered a tolerant attitude - she joined the AAF to get closer to the stars, and at least once a month she'll be spotted wearing a pair of deelie-bopper antennae as a joke on he appearance and the nature of the ship. Her Yorkshire terrier Elizabeth Crumpet ("Bitsy" or "Bits", occasionally "The Yorkshire Terror") is listed as Captain's Assistant, Officer Supernumerary in the ship's log.
