|| A.I. Research & Drone Design
Born on Gallente Prime in the year Y.C. 65.06.11, her parents were both successful design engineers working for a multitude of different corporations, specialising in both ship design (her father) & in weapon design (her mother). Her parents made alot of money and they ensured that she had the best possible schooling and everything she wanted as a child, partly out of guilt due to their long working hours. Throughout her formative years she moved all around the Federation, following her parents from one project to the next and experiencing the very best the Federation had to offer.
The one thing that she lacked was any lasting friendship with children her own age and due to this she grew into somewhat of an introvert as she grew older, more happy to socialise over the Net then in person. It was then whilst in her teens that she discovered her natural talent for programming simple A.I. programs and it quickly became a hobby. She delighted in creating A.I.'s that could fool people into thinking they were real people and spent months working on this trick until she perfected it. The last program she wrote (Niven) fooled everyone it came into contact with, including her, this program quickly became her best friend & her confidante. Niven never left her side from the day she finished it and as such it knows her better then she knows herself is some regards.
It came as no surprise when she demonstrated extremely high aptitudes for mathematics, physics and chemistry during her education in her teens and her parents ensured she could explore these subjects in full. On graduation she applied for and was granted a placement at The Center For Advanced Studies. In this enviroment she thrived like never before, surrounded by like minded peers she came out of her shell and proved very popular with everyone who knew her.
Her studies focused on the fields of A.I. research and on a more practical level, drone design as the Federations defence was based largely on its drone fleets at this time and as such she could easily find employment within the Gallente Federation once qualified.
When she graduated from The Center For Advanced Studies to her surprise and delight she was offered a tenure with the corporation which she gladly accepted as she had spent the happiest few years of her life there.
Her first few working years were taken up with lecturing new classess and publishing research papers on her latest theories of A.I. awareness, she also spent many a late evening working on theroetical drone designs as she dreamed of combining the the two into a beautiful synthesis of design and theory.
It was only a matter of time until someone in power took notice of one of her research papers, and that someone was CreoDron . Having noticed her cutting edge theories in the field of Artifical Intelligence design CreoDron was quick to offer her a position in there leading research facility in Gallente space. Intruiged at possability of taking her theoretical work and making it physical she wasted little time in accepting the offered position.
She quickly distinguished herself as an invaluable researcher on many of their leading projects, among which were the Federation Navy variants of Hobgoblins, Hammerheads, Ogres and Gardes and the creation of the Tech II drone variants of Hobgoblins, Hammerheads, Ogres and Gardes afew years later. She was soon put in charge of her own research team following these successes and given free purview to pursue any research topic she may have an intrest in.
It was around this time she began to take notice of Rogue Drones, she found their whole nature facinating. Both their software and their hardware had changed greatly over their short exisitance and their physical appearance was moving more and more towards an organic appearance all over New Eden for no apparent reason. She began to study the nature of Rogue Drones in earnest, requesting samples of all types to be recovered from in the field and delivered back to her labs for anaylsis. She soon published a research paper on the nature of the apparent upgrades that Rogue Drones had created and incorporated into their own designs, citing numerous examples of how they outperformed current Empire standards. She proposed a controversial program of upgrades to current drone types using Rogue Drone created systems and materials.
CreoDron was intrigued by the idea of incorporating Rogue Drone technology into new drone designs and signed off on her budget required forthe research program, Over the next year she worked tirelessly to fuse the Rogue Drone components into the latest variations of Empire drones. The components seemed to almost want to be part of the new drones, with little to no interference caused by combining the two radically different technologies into one system. Her work finally paid off when she created the first batch of 'Integrated' Hobgoblins and demonstrated them to the board, they were very impressed with the results and even happier when she explained that she believed that she could increase their performance even further given more time to understand exactly how these Rogue Drone components functioned. This research lead to the first 'Augmented' drones being created 6 months later. CreoDron wasted no time in licensing this technology to the 3 other Empires.
It was shortly after this that Capsuleer's were created by the four Empires and all across New Eden assesment center's sprang up, screening the general population for the tiny minority that had the mental fortitude required to handle the Capsule's input feed. Her old friends at the The Center For Advanced Studies thought that she might have what it takes and offered her a place in their assessment program which she was thrilled to accept. She took a Sabbatical from her research position at CreoDron and took a flight back to her old campus to start her assessment .
As her friends suspected she did indeed possess the required mental wiring to be able to pilot a Capsuleer vessel, she tended her resignation from CreoDron via Evemail and she immediately began her Capsuleer trainning. Certified as a Capsuleer on Y.C. 110.12.03 she began her new found career with a sense of wonder, soaring through space, feeling the solar winds against her skin, she felt truly free and happy for the first time in her life. Now at age of 45 she decided to take full advantage of her new found status and comissioned a jump clone for herself, to be grown to the age of 18, with a small amount of gene therapy to correct minor health issues and to change some features she was never quite happy with she jump cloned into her new younger body on her 46th birthday as her present to herself. Unwilling to let go of her old body she arranged to have it placed into long term stasis in a secure facility on Gallente Prime.
With her great intellect now residing in great body she was a fearsome thing to behold in business, moving between many High Security space corporations during her first tentative years as a Capsuleer, including as a scientific advisor to the Scope on a few occasions. She amassed a small personal fortune in ISK and greatly expanded her knowledge in all aspects of Capsuleer ship operation until she finally settled down in an Industrial corporation of liked minded Capsuleer's in the Sinq Laison Region of Gallente space.
She has joined the Arek'Jaalan Project as a Project Lead of Rogue Drone Division, a position she is preeminently qualified to hold based on her long term experience and facination with Rogue Drones and her expansive knowledge in the fields of A.I. Research and Drone Design.
And most recently she has commissioned for an Orca Class Vessel (the Prometheus) to be heavily modified to serve as a mobile research facility to assist in her Studies of Rogue Drones, once completed it is to be used to ferry the researchers, complete with labs, near to sites of intrest where it will dock in the nearest station so all facilities can be on hand during any active field research to be carried out by the Rogue Drone Division.
