Justin Harris //
Justin Harris is a content producer and arts educator. He day dreams all day about fantasy and sci-fi adventures that he’ll probably never have the time to write. If you see him talking to himself, he’s not crazy, he’s just practicing a voice for an NPC. He’s on twitter @charrisharris.
A Starlord is a cosmic narrator, they traverse the stars recording the tales of heroes and tragedies alike. A Starlord experiences the greatest joy when they’re able to share one of their collected epics with someone who has never heard it.
Jeffery “J.D.” Duke is a fan of individuals & their stories, lover of knowledge, and hates people, so naturally he works in Customer Service for Museums. Growing up in Southern California, he discovered a love for tabletop games and their ability to tell completely unique & original stories. After spending the better part of a decade as a Theatrical Sound Engineer, J.D. made his way to New York City where he pursued a “normal” job and life but due to his previous life, never ceased being surrounded by creative people and his love of stories. One of those creatives was Justin Harris whom he helped with creating Timid Jester Productions. Somewhere in-between he reignited his love of Tabletop games after convincing several friends to play a game he GMed for his birthday. The nerdy creativity of Justin & J.D. eventually formed The Tableverse. He's on twitter @jefferyduke.

Cpt. Qriana //
Captain Eustice Qriana is a Maraquoi who spent their youth split between training as a Solarian and working the family farm/homestead. After a violent incident at the farm, Qriana, was exiled from their Village and decided it best to leave the entire planet of Marata behind. Eustice spent several decades aboard Absalom station selling their services as a Solarian fighter to anyone who had a job from Mercenaries who had to temporarily fill their ranks to Smugglers who needed an extra hand. One thing that Qriana noticed very early on was the people calling the shots all had their own spaceships and crews that acted like family. With that in mind, Eustice lived a life of near poverty for the sake of saving enough money to afford a space-worthy vehicle and gathering contacts of other individuals working the same odd jobs who may be amicable to joining their crew.

Quib, an Usagi operative, was born and raised on Absalom Station in the Golgi neighborhood, a primarily Usagi enclave. Though she be but little, she is fierce. Quib has no known family and is fiercely protective of the Usagi race, who live under a governmental population control mandate, limiting the Usagi to two offspring under penalty of sterilization or death. This second-class treatment invites additional enemies, so you could say Quib has fought her share of goblins over the course of her short life (short, get it?). Quib grew up in an orphanage but was raised by the streets so if you cross her, it's best to be out of stabshot. She has a hard exterior that can be tough to crack, but she is a gooey nougat deep inside. If any Vesks are reading this, please note this is a metaphor. Whatever you do, take care not to touch her tail.

Pawl, a Lashunta envoy, is a man of many faces, names, enemies, friends and did we say enemies? A jovial hedonist, Pawl employs his silver-tongued simpleton status to sway stalwart savages and supposedly superior savants swiftly. A boar in the boardroom and a bear in the bedroom and a lil ducky wucky in space, Pawl isn’t even sure if he exists at all. He also has a very fine hat.
