- Asherah Madori (Ashe) - The pilot of both the Chimera and the Pygmalion, Ashe was
hired by Dante, even though ship operations was strictly Deuce's purview at the time.
Though she was a skilled pilot, there was no question why Dante took it upon himself to
hire this sexy little firecracker. After the "incident," Ashe and DeeCee remained on
Elysium... until they, along with Dante, stole the gunship "Diplomacy" and escaped from
- Beckett (Beckett) - The real Beckett was Ashe's valet. He was killed by her sister
Olympia shortly after Ashe, Dante, and DeeCee escaped from Elysium. Another of her
sisters, Megaera, had Beckett's ghost re-shelled in a synthetic body and offered the
android to Ashe as a peace offering when they met above Hatharia, the fourth moon of
the planet Valeros in the Empyrean System. Beckett served aboard the Pygmalion until
his demise. He was eventually replaced by Tayah.
- Daelyn Everett (DeeCee) - DeeCee wasn't actually hired to be a member of the crew.
They met her during their first job in the Empyrean System. A lot happened after the
"incident." Chief among these new developments was the relationship that formed
between Ashe and DeeCee. The pair escaped Elysium with Dante and formed the core
crew of the Pygmalion.
- Durante Valentine (Dante) - Dante is only member of the Valentine family still among
the crew and the narrator of the chronicles. After the death of their parents, he served
as the primary field operative for Valentine Recovery and Salvage. With the construction
of the Chimera, he was promoted to Project Manager and oversaw the crew on all field
operations... a job that he absolutely despised. Dante was thought to have been killed
during the "incident." When Ashe learned that he was still alive, the pair, along with
DeeCee, escaped from Elysium station by stealing a Madori naval gunship. Dante
currently serves as captain of the Pygmalion.
- Kyllikki Fell (Kylie) - Kylie was an unlikely, yet fortuitous, find. The crew ran into her
engineer... among other things... aboard a dilapidate cruise ship. The fact that she'd
kept the wreck flying impressed Ashe, so she offered Kylie a job. On the run from her
own troubled past, she jumped at the opportunity. Kylie is a naturally born leporn,
making her the first transgenic member of the crew. Within a year of joining the crew,
Kylie also became the crew's first mother. She has since had five children.
- Karina & Dhara Thrace (The Tweedles) - Karina and Dhara (often referred to as
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum respectively) are members of an elite commando unit of
the Madori Defense Force known as the Sister of Mercy. They were assigned to protect
Ashe by her older sister Megaera. Unlike the rest of the crew, who, despite their various
reasons for being aboard the ship, having grown into one big dysfunctional family; the
Tweedles exist for only one purpose - to protect Ashe. Both Karina and Dhara remained
valuable, if unwanted, members of the crew until they were reassigned in the days
following Megaera's death. There new assignment was to kill their former charge,
something the rest of the crew took issue with. Since Ashe is still among the living and
they are not, you can guess how that worked out for them.
- Lincoln Meyer (Link) - The crew was in need of a new diver, though Dante saw any
attempt to hire one as replacing Silas. They first encountered Link during a visit to the
derelict dreadnought turned space station, the Delgado. Link managed to dive into the
Pygmalion's computer core, take control of its systems, and attempted to ransom it back
to the crew. Eventually, they tracked the young diver down and regained control of their
ship. Rather than kill Link, like many members of the crew vehemently suggested, Dante
offered him a place on the crew.
- Llewellyn Vance (Lewie) - In their line of work, a competent medical professional is an
essential member of the crew. Instead of hiring one, they ended up with Lewie. Prior to
joining the crew, Lewie was serving time in a super-max prison on the planet Genyosha
in the Empyrean system known at the Auster, for some, as of yet, undisclosed crime.
- Oliver Hawkins (Hawk) - Like Lewie, Hawk joined the crew during their escape from the
Auster. Hawk was being transferred to the Auster to serve out the remainder of several
life sentences for a very long list of crimes. He was still aboard the prison transport
when the crew happened to steal it, and he's been with them ever since. Among the
Hawk's numerous convictions are several counts of space piracy... a detail that the rest
of the crew is loath to let Dante forget.
- Brutus - Brutus is Ashe's robotic guard dog. The trio took Brutus with them when they
escaped from Elysium Station.
- Galatea (Tayah) - Tayah is a "JOI" model gynoid compubine. The crew "acquired" the
humanoid robot during their time on Delgado Station. Her programming has since been
modified, and she now serves as the ship's custodian.
The Pygmalion began its life as DLKE-201, a Fury-class gunship in the Madori
Enterprises Defense Fleet named the Diplomacy. Asherah, Dante, and DeeCee
liberated the Diplomacy from its mega-corporate oppressors during their escape
from Elysium Station. They promptly repainted and renamed the former warship.
