Battletech : The Farscape Campaign
Lieutenant Commander Kristina Schmidt
Lead Navigator of the DropShip "Brush Wolf"
Lt. Commander Kristina Nelson nee Schmidt, is a talented AeroSpace pilot and knowledgeable navigator serving the “Brush Wolf” as its Second Pilot and Navigator. She is rumored to have numerous contacts among the New Hedon Admirality, and is a very skilled martial artist.
Lt. Commander Schmidt is a Regular AeroSpace Pilot NPC and Regular DropShip Navigator NPC.
Formerly a customs officer and AeroSpace shuttle pilot with the New Hedon Admirality, she turned independent when she failed a vision test, and was subsequently diagnosed with Retinal Degeneration. Although her vision can be a problem at times, her skills as a navigator meant she still had marketable skills and so she hired aboard the commercial Buccaneer-Class DropShip “Hot Booty”. It was here she met her husband, Commander Daniel Schmidt, though they soon faced difficulties and broke-up just prior to the “Sunburst Incident”.
Following the collapse of her job, she flailed about for a week trying to decide on a new occupation, but was convinced by her former husband to accept a contract with the Iron Dingoes. Somewhat skeptical of where the unit is heading, she is a capable navigator, and knows many of the local systems in the Hyades Rim.
Easy to get along with, she is popular among the crew, many of whom she has worked with for years. Often times, they will approach her and let her discuss matters of concern with her former husband, trusting she will remain in their confidence.
Over the past year, Lt. Cmdr Nelson has been in the company of LtSG Massimo De Luca “Advocate”. While originally little more than a casual “thing”, they have recently parted company and remain on good terms. She suspects Advocate might be obsessing over a new “love”… She appears happy with her current contract, and is likely to remain on-board the Brush Wolf as XO.
