Campaign of the Month: June 2014
Battletech (Farscape) : The New Breed
Baroness (Lieutenant SG) Claire Farron "Baroness"
Aerojock and Noblewoman from House Steiner
With long black hair, black-rimmed glasses, and a black leather outfit, Baroness is a dark, sensual femme fatale whose beauty is matched only by her ruthlessness. She pilots a Mark VII Landing Craft in the * “The Dingoes’ Fangs” operations in * Duchy of Tharn, and has been given over command of the growing Whippet Transport Lines depot and its operations on that world. She also holds an official commission as a Lieutenant SG in the Iron Dingoes.
Her first love is as an AeroSpace Pilot, and she is known to be rather skilled in the operation of AeroSpace Fighters, shuttles and other Small Craft, rating as a Veteran AeroSpace Pilot NPC. Additionally, she has training as a MedTech, Administration and Bureaucracy.
Baroness is also the legal Baron of an ancient orbital colony over the planet Morningside in the Tamar Domains, near the Kurita border. She remains out of favor with the ruling authority of the Tamar Pact, Margrave Nondi Steiner. It is said her father spoke openly about the failure of the Steiner family to secure the system against constant Kurita raids, and as such had failed in their duties. He was given a post on Tharkad as a simple administrator, and his landhold placed under a regent until his children “came of age”. Baroness’ quest to find her lost sister has effectively dispossessed her, though she might be able to reclaim the property if she had a loyal force of marines and infantry behind her.
Rescued from the Deadwood foundries, “Baroness” is a former pilot and member of House Steiner’s nobility. She is grateful for her and her sister’s erstwhile extraction during the Deadwood raid, but still longs to return to Lyran space and retrieve her claims on the family manufacturing facility, though her chances have all but evaporated in the passing of years.
She has since given up her claims on her family’s titles, and operates with * “The Dingoes’ Fangs” piloting a Mark VII Landing Craft for both shuttle services as well as recon flights. In mid-3030, she was given command of the Whippet depot on System – Gollere, and is heavily involved in establishing that operation on the world, seeing it as an opportunity to establish her own landhold once more.
