Marilyn Arda was born at Arctic Station Thula, to Lieutenant Gabriel Arda of the Aquarian Militia and his wife Naomi, a Tauron scientist who came there to study the volcano. The pair fell in love, married, and had two children, Marilyn and her younger brother Jackson.
Lyn followed closely in her father's footsteps, joining the Aquarian Militia as soon as she was eligible. She was an exceptional scout, leading scientists on expeditions closer to the volcano, accompanying her Raptor pilot brother on these excursions. She would likely have been higher ranked, if she wasn't also bluntly honest and seen as cranky. Long weeks of long range solo scouting tend to make one less than great at being sociable.
When the war broke out, her father was killed in the destruction of Heim. The rest of the family went to Libran, his mother as a refugee and he and Lyn fighting alongside Libran forces with the remnants of the Aquarian military before being rolled into the new Colonial Forces. Lyn has recently received her papers, sending her to join the Timberwolves as a scout.
This woman looks to be in her mid 30s, fairly tall and athletically toned. She seems less built for power and more for speed and stealth. Her hair is shoulder length and wavy, parted to one side. Her eyes are a sharp green, her nose small and upturned, and her mouth wide with a full bottom lip. There are lines on her forehead from an excess of glaring angrily most of the time. She is dressed in off duty BDUs, with her tags hanging visible, reading "Ghost" on one side.
