Description

Sonja

ImageName: Sonja Petralia
Age: 28
Sex: Female
Race: Human, Aschen
Ethnicity: Gemenon
Height: 5'9
Weight: 128lbs
Place of Birth: Gemenon, Illumini
Place of Residence: Caprica, Caprica City
Religion: Kobollian

Born to an average middleclass family, Sonja had a relatively uneventful upbringing. After putting herself through college, Sonja later relocated to Caprica City in pursuit of a lucrative job opportunity. Seven years later Sonja has made a name for herself in the business world as both strong and willful. With a strong willingness to protect her investments, Sonja is now the proprietor of several prominent nightclubs throughout Caprica City.

Sonja's marked success in the business world comes from a like of traveling, and Sonja makes a point of traveling abroad several times a year. Sonja is well noted for the foreign influences that she brings back from her travels to incorporate into the aesthetics of her clubs. While this has given them an exotic flair among the locals of Caprica City, it has at times stirred controversy among the more notably xenophobic critics.

So begins...

Sonja Petralia's Story

It was the opening night of Caprica City's newest nightclub, The Haven. It held an almost exotic atmosphere mingled with a modern flair of expensive equipment and sweeping architecture. Flashing lights lit up the dance floor, while overhead Sonja made her way down from a wide balcony that overlooked the club below.

Her steps held a sway to them while music flooded the building and the evenings activities began to pick up. However the night was already being disrupted by the look of things. A strangely dressed man adorned in swords was being escorted out of the building by several burly bouncers.

Sonja paid it no more than a passing thought though as the commotion was swiftly swept away by the energy of the building.

One length of the room was taken up by a sweeping bar counter and booths were situated about to give a place to sit and intermingle when not engaged in the dance floor. Dotting the room, and the balcony overhead were several VIP lounges as well, to allow for more private discussion.

All in all the place seemed in order Sonja noted approvingly.

The setting changes from the-haven-nightclub to Gambit's Bar

Sonja entered the bar, immediately feeling overdressed for the somewhat rugged atmosphere. She spent several months out of the year traveling abroad, but this was the first time she had managed to arrange passage to Terra. With the Aschen borders closed off, travel was even more restricted than normal these days and it had taken her several months to arrange transportation.

She had come looking for Gambit, though word it would seem had the owner of the notorious bar out on travels of his own. Though disappointed, Sonja hardly felt the trip wasted and there was plenty to see and do within Wing City, as well as the rest of Terra. She had two months yet before she would be returning to Langara.

For now though, she would stay for a drink or two, observe the locals.

Making her way up to the bar, Sonja ordered a virgin daiquiri, paying with aschen cubits. Once the drink was delivered, she picked it up, sipping lightly at the straw. The bar didn't seem too crowded tonight, save for a small reptile, a bar mascot perhaps, and a floating camera.

"Ah, hello?" Sonja offered to the strange camera.

Geist's movements went unnoticed out of the corner of her eye as the hovering AI buzzed about. She wasn't entirely sure what the camera's purpose was.

"Well, that's certainly helpful," Sonja replied to the cam bot. "I'm doing some documenting myself, of local businesses like this one." She felt a little strange talking to the camera, but the AI within it seemed relatively advanced. "Maybe you could share some interesting facts about this place? Despite its notorious reputation it appears to be one of the most prominent business locales within the city."

"Ah, if you could excuse me," Sonja told the Cam Bot.

She set her glass down, turning to face Geist as he addressed her.

"I am, is there a problem?" she asked. The man had the look of a military person. She had researched the notorious nature of this bar before her arrival, but had not come to expect armed military persons on the premise so openly.

Well, this was unexpected. Aschen Terran relations were strained, but this was outright vigilantism.

"I'm sorry but I'm just a business woman," Sonja replied. "I doubt I can be of any help with that."

The number of armed persons within the building was growing by the minute.

"I don't know what questions you have that I could be of help with, but go on. I don't want any trouble, I just came to enjoy a drink or two and then I'll be on my way."

"Look," Sonja explained. "I just run nightclubs. I don't think I can be of any help to you, and while everyone is standing around with guns out, there's a blind man asking for assistance. So if you would excuse me," Sonja moved away.

"Hey," Sonja greeted Jacob. "Care to join me?" she asked.

She was tense and the armed men at her back did little to help with that, but her voice was amiable enough. She was beginning to suspect the men wouldn't try anything violent in the middle of the bar with so many people around, or with a bystander on her arm.

To the armed men Sonja spoke once more. "I'm sorry, but I'm not from around here. I don't know who you're talking about. This is my first time visiting Terra, before or after the occupation."

To Jacob she offered a low, "Thank you."

She hooked her arm around his, leading him away to a nearby table and away from the armed men. She had thought she knew the risks of coming here, but this was simply not what she had expected.

"I'm Sonja," she replied before joining him at the table.

She pointedly avoided looking back towards the armed man who had questioned her, still unnerved by his presence.

"I like to travel. I make a point of spending a few months of the year just visiting new places. I didn't realize my presence here would be so unwelcome though."

"Well maybe tonight will prove to be a fluke," Sonja replied. "You're a musician?" she added.

"And can I get you anything?" she asked. "A drink maybe? It's the least I can offer."

The momentary lull in tensions was seemingly not going to hold though as CPF officers arrived on the scene. Someone must have called in a report.

"When do you guys play here next?" Sonja asked as she ordered the man's drink. "Maybe I can come by again."

The Cam Bot's returned was met with a frown. She didn't want to make more of a spectacle of the night than had already been made.

Turning back to Jacob she sighed. "You know, maybe I should just go for now."

"Of course," Sonja replied, cooperating without question. "I worship his shadow," she offered as she provided her passport and ID.

Her arm was likewise offered. The measures though seemingly extreme seemed expected and accepted by Sonja as ordinary. Traveling abroad from Aschen space these days was a tricky endeavor even under the best of circumstances.

While the CPF Officers were going about their jobs, Sonja offered them rough descriptions of the four men.

"They said they were looking for an android woman with black hair. They claim she attacked one of their men."

"I'm just here traveling. It's good for my businesses, and I had never seen Terra before," she explained.

As the questioning moved to the nature of the incident in the bar she shook her head. "They questioned me more than attacked me, and no, I wasn't harmed. They said they had orders to kill and detain Aschen citizens though."

"I don't think so," Sonja replied. "Is there anything else I can answer for you? If not, I think I would like to head out. Its been a rough night. The android should have everything recorded to your satisfaction."

Sonja rose from her chair. "Thank you, and may his merciful shadow fall upon you," she replied to the officers.

She turned to the blind man seated across from her then. He had remained quiet through the duration of the questioning and she offered an apologetic smile that would no doubt go unnoticed. "I'll see you around," she offered.

Taking her leave, she headed for the entrance.

Sonja pushed the door open and headed inside the bar. She was a bit wary to return here after the events of last night, but she seemed to be looking for someone as she searched the faces of the patrons present. It was far busier than her last time here, but the man whom she had met the night before did not appear to be present.

It was impulse more than anything that left her wanting to speak to him, and to apologize for the abruptness of her departure the night before. She would linger a time she decided, and perhaps he would happen by. He had said he was a regular here after all.

Making her way to the bar, Sonja ordered a soft drink - after all it was too early in the day for drinking. Paying with Aschen cubits, she thanked the tender. Sipping at the straw of her drink she looked around the establishment for a place to sit a while.

As Anodyne was taking her seat, Sonja too was moving past, heading for a vacant table. The pair of dragons had caught her attention though and she knocked into Anodyne while her attention was on them, her soft drink sloshing between the pair.

"I am so sorry," Sonja replied as she turned about towards Anodyne. Her face was flushed as she reached for a stack of napkins off a nearby table, in a vain but well meaning attempt to blot up some of the sloshed soda. "This bar just does not seem my place," she admitted with an apologetic smile.

"Is there anything I can get you?" she asked. "A towel? A drink?"

"Are you sure?" she asked Anodyne as Nina called out to her. Offering another apologetic smile she decided to take Nina's hint and left Anodyne to her business. She instead made her way towards Nina and the others.

"Hey," Sonja offered towards the woman who had addressed her. "This has not been my week," she added as she cast a glance back towards Anodyne.

"Both," Sonja replied.

She moved to join them as the seat was offered. She set her now half emptied glass down, retrieving a few more napkins as she cleaned the spilled liquid off herself as well.

"I'm Sonja by the way," she added. "I don't suppose you know a good place to put up here in the city for a few days? A place without gunfights going on downstairs?" She smiled wryly. "I heard this place was bad to frequent, but I guess my definition of bad didn't quite cover it."

Sonja accepted the offered hand in greeting.

"I'll look the place up," she replied. "I actually was only here hoping to meet with Gambit, but it seems he's away on travels himself."

"It took me six months to get this trip arranged though, and I might as well make the most of it."

"A bit of business and recreation," Sonja answered. "I own and run nightclubs, but I make it a point to spend a few months of the year traveling. It's good for my businesses."

She broke off conversation as Slava began peddling his drugs. Gun fights, dragons, and now drug dealing?
