Kari Capelann is a Aven Hybrid who serves as a pilot for the UCR Armed Forces with the rank of Lieutenant Commander, and is the commanding officer of SVF-64. She is the third child of Marq and Blair.
Kari was born to Marq and Blair on March 30th, 2558. After the death of her father during the Three Month Conflict, and the disappearance of her mother soon after, Kari was raised by her older brother Blade and his wife Aria. She would live on Eden for most of her early childhood before she and her family moved to the Mako Space Colony in 2568, where she enrolled in the pilot training course the follow year in 2569.
The 11th of April started as any other normal school day for Kari and Anthony, who were attending their mid-day classes when the air raid siren was heard through out their section of the space colony. Thinking it this was just another evacuation drill they were accustomed to back on Eden, Kari thought nothing of it and joined her class mates who were getting ready to leave the class room until they witness an explosion emerging from a housing complex two blocks away from the school, the windows on that particular side of the school breaking due to the shock wave. Then all hell broke loose as unidentified fighters emerged from the now smoldering hole and started to attack every thing in sight. Before they could attack the school, VF-11Cs of the local defense forces emerged from the hole as well, engaging the unidentified hostiles.
Once outside and on their way to the nearest evacuation station, Kari and Anthony noticed the school Anthony's mother, Aria worked at as a teacher, and both were horrified when the flaming wreck of a VF-11 crashed into the elementary school. Anthony pealed off from the main group and attempted to head towards the burning school in hopes to save his mother, with Kari going him to try to stop him. This decision ultimately ended up saving them as most of their group ended up being killed by one of the unknown fighters, which then transformed into a mech resembling the UCR's valkyrie fighters and landed near those who remained, training it's weapons on them before being destroyed by a VF-19C.
Although sharing Anthony's sentiment in trying to head to Aria's school, she, anthony and those who were left alive from their group were escorted to the evacuation center and boarded a shuttle to the nearby UCR colony of Osea, while Blade stayed behind at Mako to help defend the station. When the reunited three days later, they mourned the death of Aria.
Since the end of her tour in Andromeda in 2575, Kari was promoted to Lieutenant First Grade and reassigned as a test pilot, being stationed on Wellow, where she flew prototype variable fighters such as the YF-171, and participated in the first joint UCR-CMF Blue Flag War game Exercise in 2576.
Second Fall ad Church's DeathEdit
Like the rest of Church's family and close friends, Kari took the news of Church's demise hard, as it reminded her about the death of her surrogate mother. She attended the service for Church's passing with her brother Blade, Anthony.
Redeployment to AndromedaEdit
Beginning in March of 2579, Kari was reassigned to her old squadron from the Vagan Conflict, SVX-00. Between March and late October, she piloted a VF-33A Evolution and helped gather combat data through numerous engagements against Black Hand Insurgents including Advanced Feiros units of the remnants of the Far'Ces fleet. She was promoted to Lieutenant Commander at the end of her 2nd Andromeda tour and assigned as the leader of the 4-ship Idar Flight and was assigned a VF-19EX/S and stationed onboard the stealth cruiser UCR Vyrith. After being assigned to the Vyrith, she became involved with one of the crew members of the ship.
She spent much of the remainder of 2579 spending time with family members on Aurelia and in the Skyverse before returning to service in 2580 on. In April of 2580, her VF-19EX/S was replaced with a VF-31EX. She confinued to serve up until mid july of that year when she discovered she was pregnant. After discussing the new situation with the child of the father, the two of them decided to settle down and take up new posts on Eden. Months later, their daughter Esmeralda was born on February 4th, 2581. She currently trains new pilot recruits in the nearby air base.
- ESP-Regulator equipment: When her mind-reading abilities started to manifest, it proved to be too harmful for the young woman to handle by herself. To counteract this, Kari wears a pair of specialized hair clips that helps her regulate her powers, although she is currently looking for a way to control her power without the assistance of the hair clips. At some point between 2578 and 2580, Kari's ESP abilities became more stable, allowing her to discard the use of the regulator equipment.
