| November 27, 2011 | 0 Comments

Aarika Hougestag was born on the Terran colony New Stockholm in the year 2480.  She spent the first six years of her life there in relative normalcy.  Her parents were Kristoff and Magdalene Hougestag, Both civil engineers for the colony government.  Then in 2486 the colony was attacked by The Torgol Trade Conglomerate: A group that raids sparsely populated areas and takes off with a percentage of the population for black market slavery rings.  Aarika saw her father and mother killed in the firefight.  She and other survivors were carted off and sold into a slave ring.  She endured terrible hardship for the next 4 years before finally escaping by stowing away on a smuggling vessel.  The captain, a former slave himself recognized her markings and took pity on her.  She was adopted by the crew of the BLACK NOVA as both crew member and surrogate child. Aarika over time grew to adulthood, and rose in rank to 1st officer of The Black Nova.  Things were going well enough until her ship was attacked and destroyed by A small fleet of Thrallian battle cruisers.  Only her and two passengers: Symane Braxis and Gerald Clement managed to make it to the escape pods and make it to safety.  They were later joined by other members in forming the interstellar group of adventurers known as GOLUNDAN CORP.  Aarika is a master of small weapons and hand to hand combat, and although was regarded as a loose cannon by the other members, she eventually earned her place as a valued member of the group!
