Supplemental Information


System Information
  • Tauron Guerilla - After her farm was burned during the Uprising, Priya joined the Guerillas in her region.
  • Smart Mouth - Military rank and procedure aside, Priya has a mouth on her.
  • Tattooed Lady - Following Tauron Culture, Priya has a number of tattoos along her arms and across her chest. It's quietly known among the crew that she is also an experienced tattoo artist, the Tauron contingent knows it well.

Born out on the long land lines of Tauron to a mother she never knew the name of, Priya was adopted at the age of two by Saul Tarsis and his wife Arie. The family was a born and bred agricultural one with a few hundred acres to their name outside of town. They did will and were reasonably respected in the community. She grew up wild and strong natured; liable to start a ruckus among the village kids as she was to end one. Despite that, she worked hard and spent her days sun-up to down working the family's crop.

She never dreamed of a world outside those fields and plains. She was a queen of her own small domain. Even as Priya grew older, her studies were focused on succeeding her adoptive family with a degree focus in agriculture. At the same time she also earned her pilot's license, as growing up on her daddy's knee in a crop duster didn't count for much in the strictly /legal/ sense of things. Her joy rides became more legitimate work.

Then in one day - that world changed. The Uprising swept through them like a fire, leaving few survivors in their area. There had been many Cylons working the farms, replacing the need for as many traditional hands, and the uprising was bloody. Priya's family was slaughtered and their farm destroyed.

Although, latter was not entirely the Cylon's doing. After luring a number of them to the grain silo where she'd been hiding, the air heavy with dust, Priya made what she thought would be her last stand. Wounded and bloodied, she crawled into the duster and from overhead, lit a flame. The grain explosion was so large it blew the sky out over the plains in a sharp, brilliant flare. The majority of the Cylons were destroyed and she was blown free of the wreckage, found hours later by the local guerilla fighters.

Bitter about her survival and determined to see those fraker's pay, Priya joined the fight as soon as she was able. Once they were able to make their way to free territory, she enlisted as soon as she was able. And when the Articles of Colonization were signed and the unified Colonial Forces formed, she volunteered for Tauron's contingents.

Priya Tarsis is a composed of no wasted space, features cut as if someone had shorn them from marble with an eye to aggressive symmetry. Years of hard work have cut any fat from her figure, leaving nothing but whipcord and steel behind -- evenly strung like a high tension wire -- energy palpable in her clipped steps and words. Her hands are large, starkly knuckled and calloused from that self-same work. High, sharp cheekbones jut from her features, complimented by a solid jaw and straight nose, and complicated by dark crests of brow, eye, and hair. Her hair is always cut into a longer-style of mohawk, the length at the top is most often swept to one side and braided when she is on duty.
