Meet another secondary protagonist from Other Systems! The Character Dossier of XO Helen Alekos

To celebrate the coming print version of Other Systems, I will be posting my original character dossiers for each of the major characters over the course of the next few weeks so if you want to see your favorite character’s dossier stay tuned.  Here is the order: Abby,  Cole, Harden, Helen, Mark, Brian, Diane, Pat and Rockford! I admit I am not putting up anything with spoilers.

As I said last post, Harden and Helen were originally one person, but I needed more tension between the captain and Abby than the mothering Helen could provide, so their personality split into two people.

Alekos

In the drawing, I made Helen face the camera straight on with a big smile, since that is how she faces everything and she is in the middle as she is the peacemaker.

Physical Description  Tan skin with embedded microscales. Gold eyes.Like her mother (and older brother), she is tall and slender. Wiry. She has scars from her work.

Ancestry (from Earth) Paternal: Greece
Maternal: French and English.

Clothing: On ship: coveralls over a t-shirt, On leave: she dresses up for any occasion off-ship and often wears a piece of olivine that her mother-in-law gave her as a wedding present.

Character Description: Loving, extroverted, kind-hearted.

Virtues: Loves her crew/family. She mothers people. She loves children.

Vices: Because she was the favorite, she often tries to over compensate by being extra nice, extra loving to her brothers.  She tends to blame herself when things go wrong. Can be controlling.

Education: Doctorate in Engineering, but she struggled through school

Job: Planetary Survey Team, Executive Officer. She is undoubtedly the best pilot in her father’s fleet.

Age 19-mid 3o’s
When she meets Abby: 35

Relationships: Parents: Cole Alekos and Rosemary Finch. Raised by Mom, but after parents separate, she is a radio transmission. Loving relationship with Dad

Siblings: Bother, Harden (originally +14 months/ +5 years) Great friends.

Brother Mark (originally -14 years /-9 years) loves little brother, when he was a child, she was a pseudo mother. They have always been close, but they only become real friends after Mark becomes an adult and she stops mothering him.

Offspring: None. Sterilized at 19.

Romantic Relationships: Primarily Heterosexual (though like most fleet brats she enjoyed bi-sexual experimentation in  late teens and 20’s.)

She has short-term hookups until she met Brian Tolis. He is the one love of her life.

Other Weird Fact: Helen quilts in her spare time with Diane. Every family member and crew members have a homemade quilt done in a style of their own taste. Cushion covers, pillow shams and extra bedding around the ship were made by Helen and Diane. There is a lot of time to quilt in space.
