Character Profile - Gen'Terta CrystalCliff
Arten (Snowrunner subspecies) Female
Place of Origin: Arten Confederacy World of Cordia
A member of a reclusive Vulpine alien species, With White and Black fur markings, with Glacial blue stripes along her Muzzle, Gen’Terta Stands at 5’1″, standing among the tallest living members of her species. Lithe and strong, She’s most often seen clad in a Black and Grey armor, with the Blue markings of Star Fleets Science departments, Armor that serves the purpose of keeping her body From overheating, as much as Protecting her from weapons fire.
Gen’Tetra is often described as Cold and belligerent, most often by people who’ve had limited if any experience in getting to know her. In truth She is deeply caring, and exeptionally emotional, though utterly opposed to showing it without cause, a Byproduct of the Harsh upbringing she had on the Twilight world of Cordia. Gen’Tetra does, how ever, fall into the same trap Most Arten Do, of struggling to identify one Humanoid Species from another, often leading her to generalize them into generic: Humanoids.
