Campaign of the Month: June 2014
Battletech (Farscape) : The New Breed
Lady Morrigan "Mechanika" Fields
Handmaid to Lady Heather, Cybernetic Bodyguard
Lady Morrigan “Mechanika” Fields is a technician skilled in both the half-mysitcal world of “modern” mechanics, as well as the steam-based technologies of her homeworld on System – Gollere. The personal tech and companion to Lady (Major) Heather Jemmas, she has developed a reputation as a fierce and uncompromising creature.
Rated a Regular NPC (General) Technician, Morrigan is talented and smart enough to learn the technology of whatever world she might be a part of. Although primarily spent dealing with rotary aircraft maintenance, she knows enough about other systems to get by. Given time, she could easily be rated Veteran. She is also skilled in martial arts, small arms and explosives, and can both fly a helicopter and drive a tank with ease. She also has passably learned various languages, though French is her native tongue.
Her fiery and sardonic nature, disguising a kind and nurturing heart, Lady Mechanika stands out in a crowd with her jet black hair and unnatural red eyes, layered against black sclera. The Lady herself features clawed mechanical limbs as well as augmented eyes. She is infamous among her own people, and often carries around a matching set of dueling pistols, as well as a sabre.
Lady Morrigan “Mechanika” Fields early life and origin are shrouded in mystery. Born to a poor farm family in The Duchy of Horn, she was always interested in improving her situation, and qualified for advanced training in Duke Jemmas of Horn’s college, eventually serving in the military as a tech. She got her nickname for her “solenoid soul”, and abilities with both vehicles and computers.
Being both smart and pretty, she drew the eye of Lady (Major) Heather Jemmas, and she was transferred over to the newly promoted officer to serve as her personal tech. The two quickly formed a fast friendship, and Morrigan was introduced to court, becoming Lady Heather’s personal tech, bodyguard and lady-in-waiting. The two have been close ever since.
In early 3023, Lady Mechanika seemed to take an interest in Major Erika Hartmann “Glamour”, and the two have a distant and polite, yet strangely enjoyable relationship developing.
Starting in early-3048, she took over as the personal bodyguard and tech of “Nyx”, and is always seen in her company and providing point defense in all her activities. She leads a small, but dedicated force of troopers who are known to be heavily enhanced with cybernetics.
