Mentor and former boss. Dwarven drone shop owner.
Life is tough in the Aurora Warrens, but tougher when your parents die in a mugging-turned-murder when you're only 7. This was the fate of Kaitlynn and Kathrynn Mastersson, identical twin troll girls, SINless and now homeless. Forced to scavenge and compete with other SINless orphans, their luck changed when they happened upon a broken Lockheed Optic-X2 in an alley. Kathrynn wanted to sell it for scrap, but Kaitlynn saw an opportunity, she knew there was a drone store nearby that often threw out older spare parts...
Naming the drone 'Guiding Angel' Kaitlynn became proficient in piloting it with their old patched up commlink. Kathrynn became very proficient at crashing the drone into trees... but that just gave Kaitlynn more practice patching it up. With Kaitlynn at the helm they spot the best spots to scavenge for scrap and massively increased the amount the girls were able to sell, easing their burdens.
Eventually, the two were caught while scrounging for parts behind a small drone shop - but instead of pressing charges the Dwarf in charge - Gerry 'Hardwire' Blackstone - was so impressed by Kaitlynn's ability to fix up the drone that had been busted so many times that he offered the girls a job. Kaitlynn doing repair work, and Kathrynn as a bouncer/lifter of heavy objects. He even gave the girls a place to stay, just some cots in the storage space above the shop, but it was better than what they had.
Hardwire eventually discovered that Kaitlynn was piloting her drones with an old busted commlink - and after some examining the hacked together code and connections she made he realized that she had written an entire new way to pilot drones via commlink. A way that was way more user friendly and intuitive than anything on the market. Knowing opportunity when he sees it he quickly updated his drones to be compatible with Kaitlynn's software - and they started selling like crazy.
It didn't take long for the drones to attract some attention - one day a very well dressed elf with some very important documents stamped with an 'Ares Macrotechnology' logo arrived. The elf promised the twins and the dwarf things they could never have dreamed of - Official SINs for the girls, a nice upscale shop with an Ares Macrotechnology contract for Hardwire, and a full ride scholarship with a nice control rig implant for Kaitlynn... all for the low low price of 'Sign here, here, and here, initial here, date there'...
Now legal citizens, the twins had a new lease on life. Kathrynn enrolled herself in the Lone Star Academy, while Kaitlynn went off to school to pursue a Robotics Engineering degree... she quickly learned that life wasn't all roses just because you have a SIN, she faced major discrimination from here peers and teachers for being a troll in academics, and it eventually got out that her scholarship was paid for by a corp so that started a rumor that she was some corp exec's lovechild who got a free ride for keeping her mouth shut. Kaitlynn took it all in stride and tried her hardest, taking any extra credit activities offered to her - which were fairly slim.
One day Kaitlynn's dorm-mate, Chuck, insisted that she needed some air and having her nose stuck in a drone all the time was bad for her. So he forced her to come with him to practice. While there, an off kick sent a ball flying directly for Kaitlynn's head - until a young orc showing unnatural speed managed to jump up and grab it... and he ended up flying into Kaitlynn instead. Kaitlynn and the orc - Darius - actually hit it off, he was the first classmate Kaitlynn had that actually helped her to come out of her shell. So, when Darius mentioned that a new Biology extra credit program was looking for a driver and surveillance drone operator she jumped at the chance...
(Sorry it's so long, I'm not trying to be 'that guy' I just don't know how to write concisely I guess)
