Notes: Ariel is a famous fashion designer and artist from Tempest. She's cultivated and groomed a following, and uses it for all that its worth. She enjoys her life as a famous celebrity, even if it does occasionally land her in situations where she's out of her depth (think Sex In the City or any telenovela for ideas on how and why to involve her in the story). Like all Independents she uses slightly different technology from the rest of the universe. They act with +1 effectiveness, but with -1 when it comes to countermeasures and defenses, for anything dealing with their tech scores. This also applies to Independent-built equipment.
