Wilks' Contacts

Wilks’ Contacts
Horace Harkness is one of the senior Petty Officers on the casino ship Golden Voyage. He has a checkered career with disciplinary marks for fighting in bars and selling contraband on ship, but he is an excellent engineer. He is a hard core Go-Fish fan and has a face like a boxer’s to show it. White male, early 50’s, crew cut grey hair, heavy build.

Hans M’bato was a man that every war attracts: an idealist. Very well educated by the standards of the Rim, he knew that the only way to maintain freedom and resist oppression was to stand up to it. He was the first one to raise his hand at a town meeting when the Browncoats came recruiting. He served well and survived the Battle of Serenity Valley. Now he’s a farmer on Hera, tending his farm and sharing his books with his neighbors. Black male, early 40’s, average height, bald with a scar over left ear.

Sally Ahn says she grew up in the cold mountains of St. Albans. Don’t let her fool you; all of St. Albans is cold. She joined the Browncoats partly to fight and partly out of teenaged wanderlust. The war made her appreciate how much the really important things like family mean, and she returned home to St. Albans after the amnesty. Asian, about 30, short with short dark hair.

Jerry Heck was a young volunteer from Meridian who ended up a corpsman working under Surgeon Lieutenant Lennon on Hera. He accompanied Lennon and Wilks on the The "Last Flight" from Serenity Valley. Now he runs a fishing trawler on Meridian. Black male, early 30’s.

Amos is a gunsmith and dealer on Constance near the Gladstone field. He has a little shop serving the needs of the locals and travelers who stop by. But, if someone who knows him gives you a recommendation, Amos has some things in his back room that you won’t find anywhere else on the Rim. Mostly it is hunting rifles and pistols with a lot of pretty on them, but some are real man-killers. White male, white mustache and short beard, late 50’s.

Group Contacts
Marc Oberlindes is the current head of the family owned Oberlindes Shipping company based in Leedor on Persephone. Oberlindes has shipping and freight services in the core and border worlds. It’s not the largest, but it is strong and growing. They are currently in a rivalry with the larger and more established Tukera Lines. He is a connoisseur of fine wines. Marc is tall, very thin with black hair shot with some streaks of grey. White male, early 60’s but in excellent health.

Gustav & Lisa Fireau are the father and daughter owners of the Fireau et Fille vineyard on Harvest. They make some of the Verse’s most renowned wines, especially the rare Zila eiswine. Gustav is in his late 50’s and getting fat in his age, with dark hair and long mustache. Lisa is in her early 30’s, slender and beautiful with her late Arabic mother’s black hair and dark complexion.

Jane Sunli is a plantation owner on Constance and a major member of the Orbital Railroad. She receives refugees and gets them false papers and a new life. It’s a rough change for these core worlders, but better than death or an Alliance prison. She is always accompanied by her bodyguard Nick, a tall Hispanic man with a short beard and an impressive rifle. Jane is Asian, very slender and in her late 60’s and supposedly the ugliest woman on the planet. No one crosses the “Dragon Queen”.

Ching Fan is a prospecting coordinator for Alliance Prospecting Services on Regina. He manages a regional drop point in the hills of Regina, supervising prospectors and mineral surveys and handling supplies. He is Asian, in his late 40’s and very thin. Living in the dry back country seems to have wrung out of him every drop of water he could spare.

Magistrate Hofmeyer is the regional Alliance magistrate in Levittown on Zephyr, originally from Osiris. He owes his daughter Lisa’s life to the crew for rescuing her from kidnappers. He is a very honest and dedicated official, enforcing the law for the sake of the people. Tall and thin with short blonde hair. His right hand man is Lt. Quan, also from Osiris.

Reverend Black on Deadwood is the very model of a tough, weathered, frontier preacher. He dresses in a black duster and cowboy hat and carries a worn brown satchel on a strap over his shoulder.

Baron Von Alksburg is a major player in the Alliance Parliament. A native of Persephone, his family has a long and noble history. Von Alksburg opposed the War of Unification and is the leader of the Opposition in Parliament. His current efforts are focused on improving living conditions on the Rim, rationalizing military spending (and reducing corruption) and regaining suffrage rights for former Independents.
