Background

Her father? Afton really never knew her father just like her younger half-sister Riley never her knew her's either. Sisters. At least Afton had that. Annalese St. James gifted both her bastard daughters her last name, which is something of a story in itself.

Annaliese, thirsting for her roots, became an Orthodox Theist and was a priestess of Asclepius on Gemenon. Faith played a huge role for the St. James women and Afton loved helping her mother in the Colonial Cross. They often went on long trips to help with humanitarian relief aid. It was almost a family vacation one could say.

Growing up, it became a goal for Afton to pursue a career in the religious sector and she had only just begun her training in theological studies when the word came from her sister then on Sagittaron with her mother. Her mother had been killed during one of the terrorist attacks and this turning point in Afton's life would be the largest one yet.

Enlisting with the military, she began basic training in and effort to do more than just spread the word of the Gods. Terrorists do not listen to anyone save for brute force and this became her goal, to give relief in a more direct way. During her initial training she met Ted Nielsen. Rather Petty Officer First Class Ted Nielsen, a pararescue jumper who explained his position. Relief aid directly into combat areas, essentially and elite medic for rescue and retrieval of injured persons. This was her ticket.

She enlisted into the program in late 1997 and failed out not but twenty weeks later in 1998.

Defeated by her less than spectacular blow out, she went on a sabbatical to find herself again. To commune with the Gods to help her in a time of loss. Spending over a year doing odd jobs, traveling, seeing many of the colonies, she discovered the need for a closeness with Athena and Ares to return to her PJ pipeline training.

In 1999 she re-enlisted and was accepted and finally in 2001, she graduates and begins her service in the colonies.

Cole_icon.png CAPT Aristides "Janitor" Cole He has more problems than I likely could count on one hand. But we all have problems. He's a good sort…and one I can call friend. I saved his ass once, but he's an ear that I need more than I realize.
Phin_icon.png ENS Phin "Dolly" McBride Good kid. Haven't seen him much of late but then everyone has their duties. I hope to Zeus he made it.
Holtz_icon.png LT Kurt "Storm" Holtz Punches like a brick house. Despite that though he's a decent guy and his hearts in the right place. I watched him bust up another air's lip. News about his child and wife is what undid me finally. Gods be with him.
