Supplemental Information
System Information
  • Infamous Hacker - Before her military days, Isolde was more infamously known as Scion -- particularly on the Net and V-World. Her biggest hack was the one that got her landed in mandatory enlistment. The target? The Caprican Transporation Department.
  • Top Secret - Asa was part of the top secret team that coded, fabricated, and installed the closed-networked computer system for the Battlestars. She worked almost exclusively on the Battlestar Galactica.
  • In The Field - With the help of Colonel Ryan and Major Kallas, Asa was moved out of the Galactica IT Department and into the Air Wing as an ECO. She did not attend an official flight school or officer's training, but has received all her training in-the-field.
  • Food Quirk - Isolde organizes her foods by color, carefully grouping food together according to their hue. She will mix together different food types just to make sure that her plate is properly organized.
  • Nine Fingers Ten Toes - Isolde lost her left ring finger during a major campaign over the Picon city of Havison.
  • Born on Tauron to military family as third child
  • Baby of the family, and thus did not have much required of her. Older brother was destined for the Tauron military, and older sister was studying psychology
  • Ended up a complete tech nerd, hungering for what little Caprica tech ended up on the planet
  • Started working with computer technology at age ten, and ended up on The Net by age thirteen
  • Ended up with a holoband through, ahem, illicit means at age sixteen
  • Ended up arrested for illegal use of The Net and holoband technology
  • Was given the option of trial as an adult, or community service by working as an intern with the Tauron government
  • Ended up as an archetypical IT personnel tech at age seventeen, and enlisted into the Tauron military at age eighteen, assisting with computer technology issues in various departments on Tauron
  • Was still with the Tauron military when Cylons were introduced to the Tauron forces
  • Despite deep desires to poke around the Cylon hardware and software, was not given access as that level was highly restricted
  • Was on Tauron when the Uprising began
  • Was pro-Unification during the negotiations for the Articles
  • Was assigned to a cross-colony project that was revealed to be the Battlestar Project. Was sent to Scorpia to assist in the computer hardware installation and was on the team that coded the operating system for the two ships
  • Requested to be assigned to the Battlestar Galactica as a computer technology technician
  • Works both in IT and takes the occasional moonlight shift with the crew deck when needed

This woman is not precisely tall, but she isn't precisely short either. While her height has been documented as five and a half feet, she can give off the air of being insignificant. She has that kind of slimness about her of a woman who manages to maintain a petite figure without working too hard at it, but she isn't exactly strong nor agile. She has a graceless step, looking as if she is slouching even if she isn't. Her dark hair is cropped close to her shoulders, the slightly coiled locks just bouncing against her neck. Her skin is a sandy hue -- a warm tawny. Her face is narrow, with a high forehead and boxy chin to match the squarish point to her nose. She has heavy brows over doe-brown eyes, and her relaxed expression is often thoughtful.

When she isn't in her flight suit, Asa prefers her duty greens. The uniform is worn according to regulations, except she keeps her sleeves rolled up to the elbows most times -- unless she's walking into the CIC, and then the sleeves are rolled down and cinched. She trudges around in those black combat boots, having no sense of quiet steps. The pins on the collar indicates her rank as an Ensign.

  • Phoenix Cross
    • After being shot down behind enemy lines, ENS Asa, SSG Delgado and CPL Rhodes encountered a group of civilian prisoners. Despite being cut off from friendly forces, poorly equipped and injured, they effected a rescue and devised a way to signal friendly forces. During the rescue efforts, they held off a superior Cylon force long enough for the Raptors to arrive. For their gallantry, they are awarded the Phoenix Cross.
  • Distinguished Aerospace Medal
    • For the valor and skill displayed in becoming an ace with the Colonial Forces, MAJ Stirling, CAPT LeBossier, LTJG Masters, ENS Asa, ENS Osanyin and ENS Mata are awarded the Distinguished Aerospace Medal.
