Psi Wars: Kendra Corleoni 1.1

If we're going to have not-Star Wars, then we need some aliens. Sparriels would be my first choice, especially since they just came out and this would be a great opportunity to plug a great book, but given that I originally said that you should need nothing but the core books, space and ultra-tech, I have limited myself to those books for selecting an alien.  I could roll one up out of Space, but that would take too long to explain, so I'm going to use Felinoids from GURPS Characters (B261).  Everyone loves cat-girls, right? No?  Well, blame Pulver, then.

I chose to make her a bounty hunter because we need another combat character that contrasts with Dun Beltain, an agile, ranged fighter vs his tough, melee focus, and bounty hunters are generally the most badass non-Jedi characters, making her excellence believable.

Kendra was just as constrained with her options as Dun was, but I feel her character makes more sense.  Her disadvantages hint aa a tragic past very suitable for a space Bounty Hunter.  She's suitably epic in combat (Skill 17, with Fast-Draw 15 and Gunslinger), and I suspect she will eclipse Dun, highlighting how problematic Space Knights might turn out to be.  I'm not sure how useful Criminology will be, but we'll see.  I'm also not entirely pleased with Bioplas as an armor, but we'll see how that works out.  Gunslinger is, of course, underpowered with just GURPS Basic.  I'll be using the improved one from High Tech and Gun Fu, which is effectively errata.

EDIT: Kalzazz pointed out a mistake in the character.  She's under by five points (which had previously been in her basic speed).  In keeping with the rest of the Space templates, this has been rectified in a terribly ineffecient manner XD
