A female naval Petty Officer assigned to the Beowulf, she is part of the team charged with clearing out the effects of the recently deceased Deputy Chief Cryo Officer Purifier. We are first introduced to her during Indigo Squad (Book 2).
A Pilot Officer onboard the Beowulf, she is sometimes viewed with suspicion by the Beowulf XO, and it is presumed that she was a member of the Free Corps Mutiny before surrendering. Under her watch, the Beowulf tries to target the ore packets being sent from Antilles at the Marines raiding the shattered remains of Beta City in the closing moments of the First Tranquility Campaign in the Renegade Legion (Book 3). She and Ensign Dock were the only two officers in the Human Navy before they became a part of the larger Human Legion.
A sailor aboard the Beowulf assigned to clean out Deputy Chief Cryo Officer’s room and sort through it. We are first introduced to this character during Indigo Squad (Book 2).
The understood God among Spaceborn fleet personnel.
We meet this shipboard artificial intelligence with a robotic frame, which was created by Furn aboard the Beowulf during Indigo Squad (Book 2). He has proudly developed the human trait of procrastination. He calls Furn his ‘Father’, and worked diligently to serve him. Further, he was programmed with the ability to feel emotions that can be turned on and off at will. It seems that even the august world of The Human Legion wasn’t spared from the Singularity, luckily the machines haven’t risen up yet so there is still time to stop Skynet.
An elderly Human Ensign and the post-mutiny Junior Human Security Officer of the Themistocles during Indigo Squad (Book 2).
A female Chief Petty Officer assigned to the Bonaventure, who hates the augmented personnel and views them as freaks. She dies in space when she gets hit by the Beowulf exhaust cone after siding with the Free Corps. We first meet this female Petty Officer in Indigo Squad (Book 2).
A male Ensign who sided with the Free Corps and is captured when the CIC is seized by Indiya, Loobie and the Reserve-Captain. He has thick white eyebrows and is somewhat of a dandy. We first meet this foppish officer in Indigo Squad (Book 2), however he continues to play a pivotal role with his flying expertise during Renegade Legion (Book 3). In the interim between Indigo Squad and Renegade Legion he and the other surviving members of the Free Corps Mutiny stand trial for treason and murder. A majority of the Marines are acquitted because the combat drugs pumped into their system effected their free will. However, this was not the case for Ensign Dock because he wasn’t drugged. He was found guilty by his court martial panel for treason and murder and sentenced to death, however, his sentence was suspended indefinitely in lieu of good behavior and continued service because of the lack of experienced officers. He is warned, however, that every other officer in the Human Legion is authorized to execute him on the spot at the slightest sign of disloyalty. In a moment of clarity, Ensign Dock decides he needs a benefactor and so approaches Lieutenant Lee. She agrees to sponsor him, unofficially, but does so by declaring that Dock “was hers” from their forward. In return, Ensign Dock agrees to help establish the Human Legion Air Wing. Later, during the First Tranquility Campaign he proved that they were right to make such a decision when he flew, with amazing skill, one of the Stork Shuttles that saved the day at the Battle of Rest Stop 1 and during the Beta City Retrieval Raid. He ultimately proved his worth by flying the shattered remnants of the Human Legion Expeditionary Force off of Tranquility and back onboard the Beowulf where they could regroup and refit.
A Naval Chief Officer aboard the Beowulf, one of many who died under mysterious circumstances. This death was all part of the larger Free Corps Mutiny that occurred in Indigo Squad (Book 2).
Food-Synthesizer ‘Finfth’ Edit
A male spaceborn member of the Beowulf crew, assigned to ‘B’ Crew and one of the group of specially augmented ‘freaks’ that hangs out with Indiya. He was given his name by a Jotun Reserve Captain using female Jotun naming schemes. He has a romantic crush on Indiya, one that is not reciprocated. Like all the other augments, he can communicate hormonal messages via skin to skin contact. At the conclusion of the Free Corps Mutiny he pilots a Lysander shuttle and saves many personnel who were shot out of the ship as it decompressed, a skill he learned through creating his own computerized pilot training program, which we first read about in Indigo Squad (Book 2). Between the events of the Free Corps Mutiny and the return to Tranquility Finfth is tasked with training the Marines of the Human Legion how to fly space craft. In this role he trains some of the top standouts like Laban Caccamo and Corporal Hecht. Later, during the First Tranquility Campaign in Renegade Legion (Book 3) we see the results of his computerized training programs through the Human Legion Air Wing created by Lieutenant Xin Lee. Their skill and daring ultimately saved the day, pulling victory out of the drooling jaws of defeat.
A male spaceborn member of the Beowulf crew, assigned to ‘A’ Crew and one of the group of specially augmented ‘freaks.’ We first read about him in Indigo Squad (Book 2).
Furnace-Shield ‘Furn’ Edit
A male spaceborn member of the Beowulf crew, assigned to ‘B’ Crew and one of the group of specially augmented ‘freaks’ that hangs out with Indiya. He is the brother of Fant as well, and was given his name by a Jotun Reserve Captain using female Jotun naming schemes. He has a romantic crush on Indiya, one that is not reciprocated, which often lead to him spying on her. This is seen as especially horrendous among the other augmented sailors, given their treatment by the rest of the crew. Like all the other augments, he can communicate hormonal messages via skin to skin contact. Furn ultimately lost his leg fighting to free the CIC from the control of the traitorous Free Corps in Indigo Squad (Book 2).
Fusion-Plant ‘Fant’ Edit
A male spaceborn member of the Beowulf crew, assigned to ‘B’ Crew and one of the group of specially augmented ‘freaks’ that hangs out with Indiya. He is also the romantic crush of Loobie and the brother of Furn. He was given his name by a Jotun Reserve Captain using female Jotun naming schemes. He has a romantic crush on Indiya, one that is not reciprocated. Like all the other augments, he can communicate hormonal messages via skin to skin contact. He dies attempting to gain control of the Beowulf from the Free Corps. With his dying breath he fired a captured SA-71 carbine and killed the Technician trying to kill his brother Furn. We first read about his tragic life story in Indigo Squad (Book 2).
Heidi or Hydra Edit
The Beowulf’s artificial intelligence personality in Indigo Squad (Book 2), while it is officially known as Hydra, it prefers to be called Heidi and so most honor this request.
A female spaceborn crewman aboard the Beowulf, who stands out because of her slim pixie-ish build and startling, yet naturally occurring purple hair. When she was first introduced in Indigo Squad (Book 2) she was described to have slender supple limbs as well. At the start of book two she is 17 standard Terran years old. She is one of many who have been augmented with extra abilities, allowing her to be better adapted to life in space, causing her naval peers to view her and her kind as freaks. One of her augmentations are the placement of memory crystals in her head to allow her greater cognitive abilities. Like all the other augments, she can communicate hormonal messages via skin to skin contact. Further, she is capable of sending mind controlling chemicals through her skin and is required to wear gloves that alert others if she is attempting to do so. These chemicals excretion can also be used to send out deadly toxins, killing other humans and damaging electrical equipment. She is promoted to Captain of the Beowulf by the Reserve Captain after it was recaptured from the Free Corps. There are also hints of the potential for something romantic with Arun McEwan, but that all changes as she adapts to, and lives with, the consequences of having killed another ship during the naval battle against the Free Corps Mutineers. She can’t help but understand that there were hundreds of thousands who died when that ship was destroyed, which isn’t easy for her to live with. One can only hope that she will unthaw her emotions and begin to push past her PTSD symptoms, however it would be more concerting if she weren’t bothered by what happened and so everyone cuts her the slack she needs to grieve in her own way. In the period covered by the Renegade Legion (Book 3), we see the emergence of the new Human Legion for the first time. During the period of the First Tranquility Campaign Naval Captain Indiya served as the commanding officer of the Beowulf, operating in conjunction with the Marine Reserve. However, while she assisted to the maximum limits of what was capable for her ship to provide, she resented the presence of 2nd Lieutenant Xin Lee. While she wasn’t a part of the Human Legion Expeditionary Force during the fight against the Hardits led by Tawfiq, her support proved invaluable. During the entirety of the First Tranquility Campaign we see tensions arise between Arun and Indiya over ultimate control over their forces, as Indiya resents being subjected to Major McEwan’s commands. Ultimately she always listens, but she is always upset that she has to do so. After the failed effort to regain Tranquility from the Hardits in the First Tranquility Campaign, the Human Legion regroups onboard the Beowulf. At the later Conference of Truth, an effort to clear the air so all of the leadership were on the same page, she has a brutal truth revealed to her. The three leaders of the Human Legion movement were each chosen for their unique talents. Xin Lee was picked to be the aspect of charisma, the natural leader who inspires countless others to follow her. Indiya was picked to be the warrior, strategist and tactician because of her resolute and ruthless nature. For Arun, however, is the cruelest of all the roles, that of the decision maker. While history would admire Xin Lee and Indiya, they would blame Arun for all of the mistakes along the way. Even still, those ruthless decisions would forever weight heavily on Indiya and destroyed the innocence of her youth.
A female naval Petty Officer aboard the Beowulf and the direct line supervisor of Indiya, who is rarely happy. She is described as having deep lines stretched down the side of her lips, etched into her puffy red face by years of disapproval. She has had the standard augmented to allow her to adapt to a life in a sunless zero-g environment, however, they didn’t work properly causing her to have a bloated body and brittle bones.
Lubricant ‘Loobie’ Edit
A Leading Spacer and a female spaceborn sailor aboard the Beowulf assigned to ‘B’ Crew, and the senior rate in the team. She is known to ridicule Petty Officer Lock when she isn’t looking, sometimes annoying Indiya. Further, when we first meet her in Indigo Squad (Book 2) she often defers to Indiya even though she is the senior rate and only takes command when Indiya seems incapable of doing so herself. During the chaos that followed the Free Corps Mutiny, and the reorganization needed in the Renegade Legion (Book 3) to allow Arun to reconquer Tranquility Leading Spacer Lubricant was promoted to Lieutenant Commander and made the Beowulf XO.
Magnetizer ‘Tizer’ Edit
A male crewmember aboard the Beowulf assigned to ‘A’ Crew who tragically lost his girlfriend to a shipboard accident while he remained in cryo sleep. We first hear about him during Indigo Squad (Book 2) when his story was used to caution Indiya about the dangers of romance in her line of work.
A female Leading Spacer, assigned to the Beowulf, who works in the cryo department during the chaos of the Free Corps Mutiny in Indigo Squad (Book 2).
A sailor aboard the Beowulf assigned to clean out Deputy Chief Cryo Officer’s room and sort through it during the Free Corps Mutiny of Indigo Squad (Book 2).
The Deputy Chief Cryo Officer and a male spaceborn member of the Beowulf crew. When we first meet him during Indigo Squad (Book 2) he was an elderly man with rheumy old eyes who wears thick glasses and has a scratchy white beard. He is also Indiya’s uncle. His younger sister was Indiya’s mother, and he is affectionately called Uncle Puri by his niece. Further, he was the first human to be promoted to the rank of officer. Sadly, the White Knights discriminate and any vessel that has Human officers is referred to as a ‘cardboard ship’. He dies aboard the Beowulf under mysterious circumstances, though his death is officially ruled a suicide.
A female Chief Petty Officer trained to fly the Lysander Shuttle and was tasked with flying the Human Legion planet side from the Beowulf. She was known to be a very dependable petty officer with a lot of experience in naval affairs.
A female Pilot Officer aboard the Beowulf who was in the CIC when Indiya, Loobie and the Reserve-Captain cease it from the Free Corps. We first meet this pilot during Indigo Squad (Book 2), and it is unknown whether she was killed during the mutiny or somehow managed to survive.
