Supplemental Information

He likes to push the boundaries, inside the cockpit and out. Has a penchant for ending up on my shit list.


This is a kid who's had it rough. I see her standing on the outside and wish I could reach her.


She should have my job, but she's professional enough not to show it. Great pilot. I still don't get why people think we look alike.


He was my mentor when we were both on an ICJPK tour on Sagittaron. He gave me a chance to lead this squadron and I don't want to let him down.

System Information
  • Diplomat Brat - Was dragged around the colonies as a kid.
  • Blues - Plays blues harmonica.

As a child, Nyssa was dragged around with her mother, a diplomatic aide who was assigned to Tauron, Leonis and Sagittaron at various points. A rootless existence and deep-seated sense of patriotism made military service a natural fit. She attended the Caprican military academy, where she studied political science, and then went on to flight school. She was stationed in Caprica's Sagittaron protectorate, and later volunteered for two tours with the ICJPK there. When war broke out, she was CAG of a squadron stationed at an airbase near Caprica City. Her unit had been outfitted with Cylon ECOs, making the first day of war particularly brutal on the squadron. The remnants pulled together with other decimated units to join in the defense of Caprica City, where Nyssa has stayed since the beginning of the war. She was as surprised as anyone to be pulled out to join the Timber Wolves.

Fiery red hair falls down past this woman's shoulders, usually bound in a sensible braid. Her average height and lithe build aren't very remarkable, but they belie a well-toned muscular form. She's wearing standard-issue green fatigues, the pins showing a rank of Major.
