Battletech - The Ronin War
Kavellrist Zia Mortiere
A cold and vicious mechwarrior
Zia is a stunningly beautiful woman with dark red hair, green eyes, and a tall, athletic figure. She has a reputation for being aloof with occasional bursts of outright hostility. She speaks with a hint of a french accent. On the rare occasions where she drinks in the company of others, she’ll sometimes break into hauntingly melancholy song.
Zia sometimes struggles with the piloting aspect of mech fighting but is a deadly accurate marksman.
She now pilots a salvaged DCMS Warhammer WHM-6K.
Born in the Draconis March of the Federated Suns, Zia was believed to have been killed with the rest of her family in a Combine raid in 3014 when she was fourteen. That proved to be false on March 14, 3034 when a Battlemaster BLR-1G with defaced DCMS insignia was spotted making a mad attack on units of the 12th Sun Zhang as they withdrew with the renegade Marcus Kurita to the spaceport. The mech was disabled in the fighting and when salvage crews began their work they found Zia trapped in the cockpit covered in blood that was not her own.
What happened to her in the intervening years and where she acquired her training she divulged only to the KungsArmé recruiters on a condition of strict confidentiality.
