Campaign of the Month: June 2014
Battletech : The Farscape Campaign
MechWarrior Valentina Masterson "Valentine"
Remnant of the Outback Irregulars
Formerly leader of the Reserve unit, * “The Dead Man’s Hand”, Valentina has been promoted to MechWarrior and a permanent position in the Line Mechs. She was also given a standard PXH-1 Phoenix Hawk to pilot, something more in-line with both her style and Line Mech combat doctrine. Valentina is considered a Regular NPC Mech Pilot.
A beautiful and smart Davion girl once working for the Outback Irregulars, Valentina is stubborn, but is at her heart still a mercenary, loving the thrill of piloting a massive warmachine in combat. She claims to have gained her training in the Filtvelt Acadamy in the Outback, where she was recruited and served with the planetary militia on Eustatius for a tour, before leaving to serve with the Warren Militia for a tour. She was recruited by Brigadier Zane in the Outback Irregulars, and proved her worth after a few years of work in the Davion Outback enough to take the position of “bodyguard” and pilot a rare STN-3L Sentinel that the unit had acquired in their recent “explorations”. She had been with the unit ever since.
A staunch Davion “traditionalist”, Valentina is a good pilot though she alters her course of thinking very slowly. She is known to take insult easily, but is willing to acknowledge superior pilots with grudging respect. She is willing to adapt her lifestyle to the needs of the moment, however, and originally accepted capture by the Dingoes with a promise of regaining her status as a pilot. She is, after all is said, still a mercenary pilot.
Formerly accepted as the leader of the “Dead Man’s Hand” Reserve Lance, Valentine has proven a bold warrior, who shows more bravado than expected, often leading with her Phoenix Hawk in flanking maneuvers and over-running enemy positions, “…to get at the creamy filling, of course…”.
