Sparrow Millerstone

"I kindly advise you to strap in."

0 · 296 views · located in New Earth

a character in “New Earth: The Cleansing”, as played by HalcyonCamp

Description

ImageSparrow is a precocious 15-year old girl and the best darn pilot this side of what used to be the Atlantic. She spent the early part of her childhood at one of the numerous orphanages that cropped up after the cataclysm took away so many people. In the beginning, it wasn't difficult to find someone that had lost at least one parent to the cracks in the ground. People are still missing parents, but more so because of the roving bands of bandits that kill anyone in sight. That's what happened to Sparrow's parents.

Since then, she found comfort in her older brother and a lovely girl that they met at the orphanage, Ezra. In an unfortunate turn of events, the orphanage burned down and was left with only three survivors. Sparrow, her brother Sage, and Ezra. Luckily, they were found by Max, a man that had worked security for the orphanage and he took them under his wing. Of course it was intended to be temporary, but soon the three proved to be invaluable to the crew.

Sparrow spent most of her time on deck shadowing the pilot, but when he was revealed to be turncoat scum, they were stranded in the desert. Sparrow, after a few mulligans, was able to prove her aptitude behind the wheel and has been the pilot ever since. A year into their adventure with the crew of the Unarmed, Sparrow came across an animal she had never seen before. It was like a cross between a squirrel and a cat from before the Event. Not many animals made it through the first few years. She quickly adopted the thing, calling it Peanut. The fact that the cat is severely protective and can grow up to 5 times the size of the old mountain lions was an added bonus.

"This is your pilot speaking, asking you to kindly sit your a** down!"

"If you'd like to arrive in one piece, you'll need a better seat belt."

So begins...

Leo looks out at the crew with his sniper rifle in hand, preparing for their demise. He takes aim at their odd-shaped rust bucket of a ship, ready to shoot it's fuel holder. He holsd fire, ready for when it is ready to strike. "What a strange arm he has." Leo say's, as he looks at a man's metal arm. An odd group, no doubt he thought. They seemed to be friendly people, but no matter the friendly he must carry out his wishes. As he aims up at the man's head, he trips and falls down the hill.

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.

Walking past all the people actually working. Sage thought to himself what they might be having for dinner that evening. While walking around he heard Ezra saying something to Ava. But thought nothing of it really as he started heading towards the ship excited to test out a new gun that Ava had made him a couple of days ago. He never got the chance to try it out and he thought seeing how he's not doing anything why not test it out. But as he walked passed the loading area he was stopped by Max asking him if he could help him left the 30 pound box that Max was obviously having no trouble with. "Why can't you get Vylad to do it Da...Max". As he picked up the crate he cursed under his breath and with extreme effort he carried it to the ship. When he put the crate down in the ship, He could see through the ship's window that a weird looking thing was falling down the from the hill. “Huh interesting”

As Vylad was loading the materials and cargo on to the ship, he hummed silently an old song from before the world ended. As he did so, he barely remembered the lyrics. He then placed the box on the loading dock, and looking out over the valley and hills. "What a beautiful valley." He thought, as he looked upon the rock, he saw light glistening off a piece of metal on the closest hill, and then a man came out, and he began to fall.

Max lifted up the crate in the ship and stepped out of the ship and instantly hit with wave of the scorching heat of this small market depot. Walking down the ramp he noticed that Sage was doing nothing to help unload the ship when he put the crate down the man who ran the shop we were hired by started thanking us for the our service and continued to count out the goods we had brought from across the valley. As Max was putting one of the last crates down from the ship then Sparrow come out of the ship yelling at him but he could barely hear her over the murmurs of the depot but could make out enough to agree and be glad that one of the kids were doing something to help the crew and thinking that way he decided to stop Sage from walking to the ship and told him to take this crate the other side of the court yard were we are stationed. But instead for some reason he started to walk towards the ship. “What am I going to do with him”? He asked to himself.

Leon would get up, stunned by the people watching him. He'd instantly try to hide his rifle, a nervous look behind his mask. Leo then lifted himself off the ground. He whipped the dirt off of his pants. As he looked towards the group, he had a smirk. "Hello, everyone. My name is Leon. I'm looking for friends, will you be mine?" Leon then put his hand out, wanting to receive a handshake.
