Psi Wars:"Lady" Leylana Grey 1.0

We have two combat characters, now we need a space princess, only GURPS Space doesn't have space princesses.  A spy is more interesting anyway, so we'll make a femme fatale super-spy.

I found Leylana's template similarly constrained and I found it difficult to really give her a sense of character.  So, all of the templates seem too simplistic.  She seems competent enough, though not particularly combat focused, but we expected that.  While she's obviously good at moving among the upper classes, no options existed for actual status or wealth, so I have her merely faking it. Moreover, every "super spy" character out of GURPS Space is going to look almost exactly like Leylana above.  Again, Space has given us a template that's "alright, I guess" but not one that allows for much personalization.

I also note that most of the templates have slightly inflated HP, likely to make them more survivable.
