Jal is a young engineer apprentice, apprehensive yet eager for his trip across the universe. It’s the first time he’s been away from his family and had an especially emotional goodbye with his mother. Though he becomes bored easily and must find new interests weekly which can drive his fellow crew members mad. He has lost touch with his family, and seems like a loner on board the ship, always wanting to find out more. The knowledge of the people around him just isn’t enough, which can sometimes get him into trouble.
Thea is a young botanist on the ship, preparing fresh food for the crew. She has made it her task to take Jal under her wing since he arrived as an apprentice, noticing his inner sadness, and missing his family. Thea is practical and is not a fan of the obscure, preferring to solidify things in fact. Possibility to her just isn’t an option, let alone deceit and does not suffer fools gladly. She once caught Jal dissecting one of the plants in her lab, convinced a strange alien entity was concealed inside.
