- Alexandra Sinclair (Alyx) - Some people are fascinated with how things work, so they
enjoy taking things apart. That's how Alex was... except, she wasn't interested in
machines. She was interested in organics. She loved taking them apart to see how
they worked. The problem is that living things don't go back together as easily. This
was a problem for most people, but Alex didn't really like people... not living ones
anyway. They talked too much and had feelings and emotions. As you might have
guessed, this did not make Alex very popular. So, when the two people who had
actually accepted her for who she was decided to run away, naturally she went with
them. She serves as the medic on the Al-Mi'raj, a role she utterly despises.
- Benjamin Fell (Ben) - Ben is the youngest son of Kylie Fell, the former mechanic of
the Pygmalion. Ben grew up alongside Hiro and Ozzy, and he ran away with them
when they stole their parents' warship. Ben is a skilled mechanic, and, at twenty-four,
is the oldest member of the crew.
- Ozymandia Valentine (Ozzy) - Ozzy is only daughter of Dante Valentine and Asherah
Madori and twin sister of Hiro. She ran afoul of some of her parents' less savory
business associates. Hiro rescued her from a fate that certainly may have actually
been worse than death, at least she believes it would have been. Disgusted by what
had happened, she and Hiro left their home aboard Elysium station, stealing their
parents' ship in the process. She serves as the captain of the Al'Mi'raj.
- Hiroshi Valentine (Hiro) - Hiro was raised on tales of adventure. He always wanted
to follow in his parents' footsteps. The problem was that he wasn't very adventurous
himself. That all changed when his twin sister Ozzy was kidnapped. While his parents
decided how best to handle the situation, Hiro mounted a daring rescue, and, against
all odds, he succeeded. To his surprise, when he returned safely with his sister, the
same people who had regaled him with tales of their own adventures, reprimanded him
and his sister for their reckless actions. The pair decided to run away... Though, at
their age, it was really just moving out... They did manage to steal a warship in the
process. Hiro serves as the mechanic of the Al-Mi'raj.
- Saeko Kusanagi (Psycho) - How Saeko met the Valentine twins is a story best left for
another time. What I will say is that she's a very skilled combatant, possibly even more
capable than Ozzy, and serves as the crew's protector and the ship's muscle.
- Galatea (Tayah) - A "JOI" model gynoid compubine that their parents had acquired
sometime in the past, Tayah was powered down when the ship was decommissioned.
Hiro found her in engineering. He powered up the synthetic humanoid and found her
systems were still operational. Tayah has the distinction of being the only crew
member to serve aboard the ship in both its incarnations.
- Long John Silver (Johnny) - Long John is a robotic parrot that Hiro built for an
engineering competition. He won, but it was a hollow victory. His competitors all
scoffed at his achievement, crediting his parents wealth and his access to state-of-the-
art robotics research and manufacturing facilities for his success rather than his own
skill. Truth be told, he did use the lab at Kayaba Research & Development. He would
have been a fool not to. But he'd done all the work himself, from design to construction
and programming. He'd originally thrown the bird away, but his father rescued it from
the trash. Hiro keeps the bird to reminder himself that his parents weren't always
The Al-Mi'raj is, as you may have guessed from the silhouettes, the Pygmalion... which
was the Diplomacy. In an unsurprising case of history repeating itself and like their
parents before them, Ozzy and Hiro stole the Pygmalion during their own daring
escape from Elysium Station... and promptly repainted and renamed the ship.
