Campaign of the Month: June 2014
Battletech (Farscape) : The New Breed
Consort Jessica White "Ariel"
Consort of White Death
Consort Jessica White is Lord Marshal “White Death”’s wife and a member of the highest of the Marshal caste of Starlords – “The Brethren of the Void”. She is beautiful, loyal, and the perfect picture of a Starlord consort. Beneath the surface, however, lies a different side that is ready to break free from the traditional subservient role assigned her by her position.
“Ariel” seems to come from old money and is very cunning. Her role is best described as being very “Lady Macbeth”. She is always expressive that her family (and by extension, she) should have more power. Those who get to know her, recognize she is far more powerful and dangerous than she appears. For now, her ambitions are tempered by her caste upbringing and social norms, but any who cross her are quickly on her enemy list, and should be very, very careful.
Few understand the background of the entire White clan, and “Ariel” is even more of an enigma; she has always just been his consort, as long as Colonel White has been around. When he claimed his territories in The District of New Haven, she largely took over the management of the territory, while he has concentrated on the military and his work in Fort Dis, and “salvage” operations elsewhere in the Inner Sphere.
It was revealed in early-3031, that her “grandson”, Jeremiah White “Lucius” is the family heir. It was also revealed during this discussion, that she and her family have been closely attached to the relatively unknown “Project Reset”, and have profited from acquiring “several” such caches in the past. She has also expressed a “family” interest in the mysterious “Projekt Ubermannennir" (“Project Great Mankind”) of Doctor Magnus Schroeter.
In late-3033, the invasion of Rhiannon City by unknown pirate forces is believed to have been at her knowledge of Doctor Schroter’s research. The forces of White Death have otherwise remained fairly quiet over the last few years.
