You Make the Mob, S01E05: Dislikes

This is a collaborative effort to create an NPC who will be settled somewhere in Starmourn! See http://forums.starmourn.com/discussion/156/you-make-the-mob-s01e01-pilot for the original thread.

Here we are voting on her dislikes! So far we have voted on a bookish Amaian scholar whose makes her living as a zhubeast wrangler. She enjoys taking things apart (which she is absolutely terrible at putting back together again, despite her insistence otherwise) and ancient earth memes.

Next up we'll get more into her background. Where is she from? Small town, large city, tourist trap, garden satellite? I'm looking for more of a description of a place rather than a specific city or planet or whatever (as part of her background it may not be somewhere you can actually visit), though you're free to suggest that as well if it works.

    Possible origins:

    -A farm on a planet with constant storm systems frequently spawning tornadoes
    -A deep-space freighter w/ a mostly human crew (explaining knowledge of Earth memes)
    -A space-convent
    -Small city that was destroyed by a series of pirate attacks
    -Exactly where she is now (never left)

    1. A slave ship, where she was forced against her will to take care of the zhubeast — before becoming so damn good at it that she rose to be a valued and high-ranking member of the corporation.
    2. No known origin: she suffers from amnesia and other frequent memory lapses.
    3. No known origin: she's incredibly secretive about her past.
    4. No known origin: a pathological liar and attention-seeker, she invents a different, greatly detailed origin story each time she's asked.
    3&4 could be consolidated.
    4 was totally inspired by the Janitor from Scrubs, who is hilarious.

    Forget everything I wrote above. I pre-vote this.

    It's a clear winner! Our zhubeast wrangler hates zhu meat.
