The Silence - 140 EP

The El'For are not particularly well known for their ship-making prowess. That's why Laishe didn't buy the ship from the El'For. In fact, he didn't buy it at all! Stolen from a Grue Unity shipyard and made soundproof by the El'For, the Silence is a wonder of modern shipbuilding, to say the least.

Quite a Large Ship - 5 Points
The Silence isn't small by any means.

  • Awesome Sized Ship

Spaceship - 28 Points
A spaceship can, well, fly through space! Duh! It also is no slouch in atmosphere and can even go underwater!

Ship Repair Servos - 6 Points
Laishe is a fairly good repairman; still, you can't fly and repair so he got an automatic repair protocol installed onto his ship.

  • Regeneration 6

Shipboard Utilities - 25 Points

Complications

Cold Hard Cash [Greed/Motivation]
Laishe is a fan of money. A rather big fan of it, in fact. If he had a mother, he might have sold her for enough of it. Whether it be smuggling, murder, robbery or damn near anything else, Laishe will probably do it if enough money is involved.

Don't Scratch Silence [Obsession]
Laishe likes his ship. He likes his ship alot. He likes his ship so much that, should anybody or anything even think about harming his ride he would take no qualms in trying to kill them on the spot. While not the most capable fighter, Laishe is often more than capable of that.

LOUD NOISES [Weakness]
While living with the El'For, the aliens had been determined to enhance the human's hearing to the high capabilities of the El'For. Unfortunately, human physiology doesn't seem to be that accepting of the sorts of implants that the El'For attempted to use on the human, resulting in Laishe's hearing remaining almost exactly the same, save for giving the human the pleasure of feeling excruciating pain in the presence of loud noises. Fortunately, the Silence has earned its name; the ship, as well as space itself, hardly make any noise which is a sweet relief for the human.

It's Not Stolen, It's Borrowed! [Enemy]
If you look at the list of enemies of the Grue there are all sorts. Rebel factions, galactic warlords. And then there's Laishe, a man that somehow managed to get himself into a prototype Grue warship and steal it. Suffice to say, they're not his biggest fans. The surviving Red Vultures also have little love in their hearts for Laishe; after getting half of a crew killed it's a bit difficult to hold somebody in high regard.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself Sneak Thief [Reputation]
Laishe isn't exactly known as somebody who sticks to the straight and narrow; quite the opposite in fact. Many larger ports recognize him for who he is and there are more than enough people he has burned over the years to get him in trouble.

Character Notes

Displaced humans are nothing new in space. They travel the stars, roaming from world to world without a care. Often enough one ends up on an alien planet, crashed and gone.

Such was the case of Alyssa and Tyril Telfoni. When their small transport crashed on the homeworld of the El'For, the humans did not know exactly what to expect. Whatever it had been, it wasn't the response.

The El'For tend to react extremely poorly to loud noises and, as you can imagine, a ship crashing from orbit resulted in quite the ruckus. The El'For were brutal in their vengeance for the slight, murdering each and every passenger on the transport. All save one; an oddly quite, injured baby. It was fortunate that the babe wasn't of the more common squalling variety or the El'For likely would have killed it as well.

The child grew up on the world of the El'For, almost blind on the dark planet. While the El'For had highly advanced hearing that allowed easy navigation, the human child did not. El'For attempts to enhance the hearing were met with little success, giving the child the weakness to sound of the El'For without any of the advanced traits.

For twelve years the boy remained among the El'For, rarely speaking and, of course, trying to make as little sound as possible so as to not risk the wrath of the aliens. While they were more than willing to raise him, more than that got little but anger from the aliens.

It was after a particularly vicious beating that Laishe was sneaking around the spaceport, watching the ships land through the thick, soundproofing glass. In a moment of anger he snuck into the spaceport, the loud noises almost causing the human to scream and, somehow, snuck aboard one of the many traveling ships.

From there the tale writes itself. A young boy, stowing away on a ship of outlaws, quickly learns their ways. How to shoot, how to drink, how to swear and, most of all, how to fly.

Flying, especially in space, was one of Laishe's few true pleasures. Flying in orbit is noisy, loud and painful but in space? Silence. Perfect, still, quite silence.

Eventually Laishe outgrew his crew and joined another. Then another, and a few more after that. In the next few years of his life the human jumped among half a dozen crews until he finally met up with the Red Vultures.

Calling the Red Vultures bold would be an understatement. They were insane, clinically so, and their choices in jobs reflected it. No sane crew would take a job to steal from the Grue and, yet, the Red Vultures did.

Some god must have been smiling from above for, while there were minor complications, the plane went off without a hitch almost the entire way through until a hidden security wire was tripped in the prototype ship bay. The crew ordered Laishe into the ship to get it ready to fly while they sunk in, preparing to attempt to hold off the greatest warriors in the universe for as long as it took.

Rather than stick around, Laishe got the ship flight-worthy as quickly as he could and, without bothering to let the crew in, took off just as the Grue forced the doors open to the hangar.

From there, the rest is history. Whether it be an escort, theft, smuggling, transport or anything in between, Laishe is the man for the job. His skills as a pilot have become the stuff of legend and, despite their best efforts, authorities seem to have had a bit of trouble pinning down the man with the wondrous ship.
