Cybr’s Story - Part 1
I was born on the 4th moon of Cyrus in the Plisiosene Galaxy. My birth name was Cyndon. My father was the manager of a mining and manufacturing colony that made stellar drives. My two sisters and I were the only children on the colony. When raiders attacked the colony to steal the drives, my parents were killed along with all of the other adults in the colony. My sisters and I were taken prisoner. We were taken to the merchant planet Mor where we were traded as tribute to the temple prostitutes (for favors) at the Temple of Lor.
My sisters and I were raised by the temple prostitutes. The High Priestess decided I was too pretty to be a boy, so I was raised as a girl. As was the custom in the temple, before puberty, my sisters and I were given hormones to enhance our female attributes. Because of this I never fully developed as a man. When I began to bloom as a young woman I was renamed Cyndee. My sisters and I were trained in the arts of the temple prostitutes: Spiritual Seduction and Divine Coupling in the tradition of Lor and his concubines. Because of my “special attributes” I had several devoted customers. One in particular named Zinn was much taken with me and told me that he loved me on many occasions. He paid a large tribute to the temple to take me away.
Zinn was a cargo ship captain who specialized in transporting difficult and dangerous cargoes to often unusual places. I will say, he treated me very well and I think he actually did love me. He taught me to pilot his ship which was equipped with all manners of extras to make it maneuverable and fast. In order to fly it efficiently he paid for my cyber augmentation with a cerebral interface to connect to the ship’s computer and ocular implants for better night vision and a heads-up display. The cargo missions where always difficult and sometimes dangerous, but Zinn was paid well by his customers. The missions were never boring as you would expect for merely making deliveries. After a while I became a good pilot, but the best part was my new ability to (because of my enhancements) jack-in to cyberspace with a signal or any physical connection. I spent so much time wandering the dark corners of galactic cyberspace Zinn began calling me Cybr. Life was good for us for several years until Zinn got drunk on Eldra and was killed in a bar fight. The ship was confiscated by the local governor and I was left with the clothes on my back and a few credits on my chip.
I managed to book passage on a transport ship going to Kalidasa. While on-board I met a beautiful passenger named Radclyffe. She told me that she was a Companion. I had never heard of Companions, so she told me many stories about her life and the members of her Companion Guild. The temple prostitutes of Lor were never unkind to me, but we were never really close. The Guild sounded more like a family which I missed very much. When Radclyffe got off at Korolov Station on the Korolov Asteroid I did also. I was accepted into her Guild and I began my training as a Companion acolyte.
