Appearance – Talia has piercing green eyes that often have a distrustful glint in them. Her hair is long and brown, covered in grime, and most times pulled back into a messy ponytail. Her skin is a bit tan, but still very white Talia's body build is of an athletic physique and rather lithe.She is scarred in quite a few places and wears them like badges of honour, showing them off whenever she gets the chance. This woman is 5' 3"
Background – Talia was an orphan child, her father having died a few months before she was born and her mother giving up during childbirth, probably because her daughter was a greedy little !@#$%. Always the trouble maker the little girl in the orphanage, and usually ending up making ridiculous little things out of various materials, like a hairpin she stole from a caretaker, a few strands of hair she tore out of another girl's head, and a toothpick she built herself a little bow that she fired at other kids, whenever she hit them in the eye she would yell bulls eye. Yeah, lil' Talia was ^-*!ed up like that.
After her second time in trouble with the law at age ten and tired of being scolded by the caretakers and the other children, Talia grabbed a bag, stuffed it with most of her stuff, and walked out the door while no one was looking, leaving a suicide note and a bloodied kitchen knife behind, hoping it would keep them off her trail for a while. Not her best plan. Especially considering it was a suburbs filled with street gangs that she went off into. Yet somehow she survived. She could easily sneak around thanks to her small size, light weight, and practice at stealth for gathering her supplies making her somewhat quiet. She was able to live off the streets for a few days before she had first found out that someone was looking for her, or rather her body. Alerted to this the girl fled into the alleys for most of the time from then on out. After another week or so she finally ran into a few guys from a gang. Being so small and an early bloomer made this especially dangerous in Talia's case. At first she ran, using her knowledge of the crisscrossing alleys to try and get out into the streets as quickly as possible as soon as she was alerted to the men's intentions to hurt her, but they knew the streets better. Having the young girl corned she should have been easy prey. If she didn't have a god damn bomb in her backpack. Yep. A bomb. Having been bored all the time while in the dark alleys she needed something to do. And that something was a bomb. All she needed was two flashlights, hairspray, a ping pong ball, a tiny hour glass, and some nails for shrapnel. Although not scared at first, when she shoved the bomb in one guy's pocket, released the sand, and tripped him so he fell towards the other, promptly exploding almost immediately after he got up, they ran off.
Good for Talia, she did have only the single bomb.
These guys reported what the hell had happened to their boss, who immediately wanted to add this child to his collection of ruffians. Although she was young, she was one hell of an improviser and plenty scary. Approached kindly by this man, Talia, hesitant at first, accepted. After about a year and half, her lacking of a last name for her entire life she adopted her boss's, Jester. He was like a father to her, in fact, he did in a way adopt her.
Talia's stealthy ways also didn't go unnoticed, to add onto her possibility of becoming one of the best illegal arms makers , she would also become a very successful smuggler because of her silent movement. Quickly she adopted to the idea. Having smuggled money and drugs across many a border and a ton of planets. She was on one of these jobs when the Zerg infestation started on Ruusan.
