Supplemental Information



System Information
  • Blue Collar Girl - What's the difference between a salad fork and a dinner fork? A fork is a fork, right? Kyle is most at home around the blue collar world: people who one-fist beers and don't mind eating with their hands. She's not afraid to curse, believes in labor unions, and tends to root for the underdog from the parking lot tailgate party.
  • Dirty Hands - If Kyle has a weird talent, is an ability to be fine with getting her hands dirty in ways that germophobes would find obscene. She can perform an oil change and then clean an elk without batting an eye, and if you drop your keys into a mucky storm drain, seek no other.
  • Greaser - Costello's One-Stop in Caprica City? Yes, Kyle is that Costello. She's been working on cars for years and her garage-chatter game is on point. Take care of your cars. Kyle has opinions.
  • Late Night Creature Show - Up until joining the military, Kyle had seen every episode of a late night B-movie double-feature program. Since she's been away, her family has been recording the episodes. Kyle doesn't just like movies; she likes BAD movies.

Kyle Costello was born to David and Melinda Costello, citizens of Caprica City, Caprica. David and Melinda had wanted three boys and one girl, but instead were gifted with Vinze (2 years older than Kyle) and Mick (3 years younger), with Kyle in the middle. Initially expecting three boys in a row, Kyle's stolen traditional male name comes from a mix of a trend of women with men's name at the time and a tongue-in-cheek joke between the parents.

David and Melinda are the owners of Costello One-Stop, a full service auto station on the fringes of suburbia. David Costello had service the Caprican military (vehicle engineer) during their on-going cold war with Tauron. As a result, the family plan for their children was clear: 1) They would be expected to spend at least one tour with the Caprican Army, 2) They would one day take over the family business. 3) They never wear a Tauron Bulls jersey.

It was barbecues and pyramid games for all three children, who attended the same high school together. Kyle played on her high school team and with no intention of going to college, Kyle enlisted in the military shortly after school for a four year tour, which landed her part of a Reconnaissance unit. After serving four years, Kyle returned to civilian life, working out Costello's One-Stop.

In April of 2235, Kyle was called back into service by the Caprican military. Her younger brother, Mick, was serving at the time in the Navy, leaving the eldest son to assist his parents in running the shop. After scoring top marks in marksmanship upon reentry, Kyle was given the opportunity to attend SST (Scout/Sniper Training), which she accepted.

Now, she's been assigned to the VK-1 Timberwolves, as part of the united Colonial efforts to deal with the Cylon Revolt.

This woman looks to be in the prime of her health, and somewhere in her mid to late twenties. With creamy, Caucasian skin and a mane of dark, brown hair that streaks longer than her shoulders. Her cheekbones are angular and there's just enough extra muscle around her shoulders to suggest that she had to gain weight to make her athletic build, and that a once-skinny girl had to drink muscle shakes while preparing for her military service. She's hazel-eyed and sharp-browed, with enough quiet confidence worn in her lips to suggest she was probably one of the popular ones in high school. However, there are more interesting details, such as the faint tan line around her neck in the shape of a thin necklace, a lack of tan line on her ring finger, and a tiny scar on her chin that's been there for years.
