Karena grew up with her identical twin, Kavya
. Both were borne of a very distinguished line. Their ancestors were governors, regents, doctors, scientists, colonels, and philantropists. Karena knew that she was constantly in the shadow of her flashier, louder, and more "charming" sister.
Her parents weren't often around, and the twins played pranks aboard the various spacestations, ships, and mansions they inhabitated. Gradually, they arrived in secondary school,
Karena top of her class, Kavya right behind her (via cheating, most would say). Karena was accepted into the acedemy at age 16, graduated with honors at 17, and was an Elite Squadron Captain by age 18. Now, at the age of 19 she is the top scientist on the Posiola
, which is the flag ship of the Khryonian military and the home of Khyros
, General, Chancellor, Emperor...etc, of Khyron. Her duties are many; she oversees the medi-bay, and all scientific reasearch labs aboard the vessel, and she organizes the interplanetary covert operations (in the absense of Agent Lian Kio, who has changed gears and is acting mechanical supervisor on the ship). Karena avoids love and men at every chance, having seen what being engaged to Khyros did to her twin, Kavya. Suddenly, their closeness is gone and a strange, unfillable chasm has been created between them. Karena certainly never expected to fall for a prisoner, to follow up on which would be equivalent to high treason.
