Sparrow blew the hair out of her face as she stepped from the cool ship into the blistering heat of the sun. Her boots clanked loudly as she stomped down the ramp, scrolling through the holopad in her hand. Without looking up, she deftly maneuvers her way between the large metal crates being unloaded from the ship she called home. To any watching, it would seem as though she had danced this dance many times before.

"Max!" She called over the general chatter and noise of the small market depot, "This should be the last of the load. I'll pull her around back to get ready for loading." The girl waited for confirmation from the man with metal arms before giving a salute and heading back into the ship. In a swift motion, the girl to a treat from her pocket and passed it to Peanut the Squat, that rested on her shoulder.

Just as she was about to duck back into the ship, a commotion began stirring over the hill. Something appeared to be flying down the hill at great speed. When it landed in a crumpled heap at the edge of the market place, a quick inspection told Sparrow that it was a man with a very large gun. Her training kicked in and she sprinted to the cockpit, jumping into the pilot's seat for an easy getaway. With toes posed on the pedals for take off, she watched what would unfold through the dusty windows.



Ava Sparx was never one to shy away from hard work. She was always one of the first to jump to duty when it came to loading and unloading. Plus, she always held an unspoken competition with the men of the party as to who could carry the most without whining like a child the next day. She didn't even mind that Max had an advantage with his cybernetic arms, it just made her up her game.

Unfortunately, the heat was sweltering that day and it made Sparx feel sluggish and slippery. Two words which here mean, annoyed. When Max was temporarily distracted by Little Bird, she used the time to huff a little more than usual and wipe the sweat from her eyes. Perhaps it was a good thing she did as she seemed to notice whatever was fast approaching down the hill before anyone else.

Even before she knew it was a man, she flipped the gun strapped to her back into her hands and took aim. When she realized it was just one man with a sniper rifle, Sparx wished she had brought her heat sword out to play. Unfortunately, the pack was very heavy and she really wanted to reach a new record today. Either way, gun or sword, she's a deadly foe to have.
