Dossier IntroEdit

Chakat Nightfreckle is exceptionally unique, and the only Stellar Federation citizen of hir kind.  Hir incredible uniqueness is a result of the method of hir creation, and the history behind hir creators.

Red Alert!  Now entering a spoiler field!
Due to hir unique nature and origins, shi was forced to fight a legal battle in 2318 with the UNTWG and the Stellar Federation Command, in order to secure the same legal recognition and rights as a normal person.  Hir lawyer, Danna ap Vokarr na Hesheen, was instrumental to this battle; the two would develop a lifelong friendship.

As a result of those court decisions, Nightfreckle was formally and permanently affirmed as a legal Federation Citizen, with all the rights and privileges thereof.  Shi additionally won complete recognition and official classification as a chakat, despite hir unique biochemical and microscopic cellular structure.

Despite hir synthetic origins and unique physical makeup, the courts have determined that Nightfreckle is a natural sapient person, and not an A.I. program, nor a machine, nor a cyborg.  Shi does not neatly fit into any such category, defying the limits of our language to summarize; thus, a new term was coined to describe beings like hir: "bio-synthetic organisms".


Nightfreckle was created by a race of beings now known to the Federation as the "Vault Denizens".  Their existence is largely classified, and is not public knowledge.  Even as late as 2340, fewer than 100 people are aware of this unique offshoot of Terrans.

Further records hidden by author to avoid huge spoilers.

This character is part of a work-in-progress unpublished story.  Additional details will be entered here after they are revealed in published story chapters.
