Campaign of the Month: June 2014
Battletech (Farscape) : The New Breed
Captain Jessa Dajus-Marik "Dragonfly"
Spec Ops and Command Officer
Jessa Dajus-Marik is a Veteran Spec Ops NPC, Regular Mecha and Aero Pilot NPC, and a Regular Tech NPC. She has knowledge of tactical and strategic ops on a level above normal, particularly regarding House Marik.
As a senior command officer for the Iron Dingoes field operations, she has the wide responsibilities of the unit’s intelligence force, * “The Dingoes’ Fangs”, and oversees much of the internal security and research surrounding the unit’s personal technology assets, which including various examples of rare LosTech. She is the Colonel’s contact regarding operations for the unit as a whole, and has almost exclusive immediate contact with both him and the Command Council.
When her command staff are deployed to the field aboard their Sultan Mobile Command Post, she remains aboard the “Pandora’s Box” to provide contact with the Support Groups remaining behind, as well as the unit’s various scouting forces. In her absence, Master Tech Melinda Clarke “Echo”
manages the command staff and its Mobile HQ.
Perhaps the most mysterious member of the band, then Lieutenant Jessa Dajus-Marik is a former staff officer who acted in the 3rd Marik Militia as Anton’s personal liaison. Although the sharp-looking young woman claims she’s loyal to Anton’s memory, not everyone understands or believes her motivations.
Dragonfly claimed she was after Janos for personal revenge, though she won’t talk about it. She claimed to have been a shuttle pilot (and the girl can fly) when Anton started the revolution, and he placed her in his command staff to better keep touch with his personal regiment, the 3rd Marik Militia. She certainly seemed well-informed of the strategic plans being sent from Anton’s High Command, particularly regarding troop movements and the overall plans of the War.
Few people trust Jessa, especially since she still prefers to wear the uniform of Anton’s personal command staff. She rarely carries a weapon openly, unless she knows combat might occur, though she has a hidden hold-out pistol on her at all times. Despite the mistrust surrounding her, she is relatively fair and tolerant of people. She understands she has to work with the crew if she’s to survive. As the years have passed, she has proven loyalty to the Iron Dingoes, and remains, without question, well trusted by the entire command staff, though some other members might have their personal doubts.
Jessa was among the many senior officers who spent the better part of a year in the mines on System – Pilpala, and the time she spent there seems to have affected her, deeply. She has since begun using the image of a turquoise dragonfly as her personal crest, and has acquired the nickname “Dragonfly” in military dispatches.
For many years, Captain Dajus-Marik had been responsible for organizing the intelligence branch within the Dingoes, * “The Dingoes’ Fangs”, and had taken responsibility for intelligence operations in the unit. Much of this force came taken from “Cerberus Command”, and Echo played a vital role in establishing this organization. With Glamour often away on various business, the activities of this branch have often fallen onto her shoulders.
