Skade's Story [Dec. 9th, 2003|07:54 pm]
Silhouette Quartet

[mood |confusedconfused]

Lille St. Claire was born, in the Matrix, in Marseilles, France. She lived with her family until the age of 2, when her parents and brother were killed in a car accident (a tragedy planned and executed by the Agents, who felt that Lille's father was getting too close to the truth). Lille was supposed to be in the car with them, but she was deemed unfit to travel due to her weak heart and left with her nanny.

After the accident, she was sent to Paris to live with her maternal grandmother, a wealthy French aristocrat whose only child had been Lille's mother. Her grandmother sensed Lille's fascination with planes and enrolled her in Paris's elite Flight Academy at the age of 5. She began her extensive training in flight simulation and actual field work, learning to pilot not only airplanes but fighter planes and helicopters as well. She also trained extensively in the use of long knives and artillery.

Eleven years of training later, Lille was found and unplugged by the same people who recruited her to pilot the Hammurrabi. She and Kaze worked surveillance for two years before Pandora, and then Shiva, joined the crew. The four worked together on reconnassaice missions before Neo's victory over Smith. The crew has been conducting scout missions to find more humans to be unplugged for a slightly over a year now. Although she relishes the long-awaited peace, a part of Skade still longs for the dangerous maneuvering and impossible flight missions the Hammurrabi used to go through when the war between the machines and humans was still raging.

Kaze's Story [Dec. 9th, 2003|07:44 pm]
Silhouette Quartet

[mood |contemplativecontemplative]

Amaya Murasaki's mother was killed in a shoot-out when Amaya was seven. Slightly gifted, she felt the change in the Matrix when an Agent took over her mother's body. The woman was a diplomatic aide at Tokyo's American embassy, while her husband worked for an international security corporation. After her death, the man and his child moved to the city of New York. A year later, he married another American woman who gave birth to a daughter called Mikage. Having inherited her father's programming skills, Amaya worked for his company's Boston branch as an intern while entering M.I.T. at a young age. Being attuned to the Matrix, she finally found the truth she'd been searching for. She was recruited by Roland, the captain of the Hammer. Unplugged at the age of 16, she dropped out of sight. In the real world, she worked first as the Hammer's logistics officer, then as its second-in-command. She got her own ship five years later, a small craft called the Hammurabi. Skade was initially assigned to her as pilot, while they ran courier and surveillance missions. Within the next two years, an operator named Pandora joined them. She was followed by newbie Shiva, formerly known as Mikage. The half-sister had searched for her, and in the process, been recruited by Roland also. She was trained to be a field operative. After working together for a year on reconnaissance missions, Neo won against Smith. Fortunately, the Hammurabi and its crew had survived the machines' attack on Zion.

It has now been a year since peace was made. The Hammurabi has been given the task of finding potentials to be unplugged by other ships. As a result, the crew has established relationships with people still in the Matrix.

Silhouette Quartet

[mood |pleasedpleased]


Name: The Hammurabi
Task: Surveillance & Stealth
Captain: Kaze
Ex-O/Pilot: Skade

Hammurabi was a ruler of the ancient world, establishing the kingdom of Babylon as the world's first metropolis. However, he is better known for the celebrated code which bears his name. This is the earliest-known example of a ruler publicly implementing a set of laws upon his subjects.
