Her uniform is always perfect and she wears the highest medal that can be awarded to a marine with pride.

In battle she wears the standard marine battle armour however hers is scratched and scorched, a physical account of the battle she’s fought. Her armour is also decorated with a characterised reaper on her right shoulder and the federation insignia on the left.

History:
River was born to Richard and Kyra styxx, she is an only child. When she was 4 her father was killed and her mother went missing, they were stationed on the same ship when it was attacked and dropped off the raider. The only reason River knows her father died was because her mother last transmission was a list of casualties.

After the events when she was 4 she was put into an orphanage and spent the rest of her formative years there. The orphanage was a rough place and she learned to fight and hold her ground. When she was 18 she enlisted in the marines. During her training she proved to be a crack shot with a rifle and a natural leader. After 3 years she passed her training with flying colours. She spent most of her career posted on various ships and outposts, fighting small skirmishes and it was in these skirmishes she started to build a reputation of being merciless to her enemies and harsh on her men. After 7 years she was promoted to staff sergeant and posted on the federation border colony of Acheron.

Acheron was a shining jewel of a colony; it had an active cargo port, space station and marine base. It was a hub of trade and exploration, on the edge of federation space it was the gateway to unexplored space.

That was until it came under attack form a race of merciless aliens unknown to the federation at the time. In the six months of combat the thriving city was destroyed. The attacks where almost daily and it took a heavy toll on the colonist and the marines. This was where River earned the nickname the Devil of Acheron. She was merciless to her enemy, to the prisoners and to the enemies wounded. She was harsh on the marines often sending troops who disobeyed her to the most dangerous parts of the front line. The only thing keeping her in line where her superiors but as the battles raged on her superiors where killed by the enemy. Soon she was the highest ranking marine left alive and took command. Under her command the planet held until the federation was able to rally a big enough fleet to drive off the invaders. Her command was harsh, unyielding and merciless. She was quoted with telling her men that not one more step backwards would be taken. Despite the heavy losses the marine under River’s command held and she helped turn the tide of the battle. Despite her extreme methods she had helped save what was left of the planet, so the marine command let things slide with her. She was awarded the highest medal for a marine and promoted.

Her actions at the battle had not gone unheard by the normal marine. Her reputation grew and she was known by almost every marine, she had become infamous for her brutal tactics, merciless attitude and her unwavering courage.

Medical profile:

River is in great physical health. In her career as a marine she has been wounded several times on almost every part of her body. All her wounds have healed without a trace.

Mental profile:

River is cold, merciless and does not suffer fools easily. However despite this she is a natural born leader. She can also get on well with others. She is a master of split personality. With other officers and crew members she is attentive and a good listener. In battle her real personality comes out. This has made her a very efficient minded person. Her IQ is also exceedingly high for a Human.
