Age: 26 years Race: Human Sex: Female
Hair: Golden Blond with brown highlights Eyes: Dark Brown Skin: Light Caucasian
Disposition: Aurora is an adventurer, loving to be doing this although this conflicts with her interest in creating and inventing. She often has a hard time dividing her time between her various interests. While she can work with groups, she is a bit of a loner and prefers to work by herself. This is likely why she always wanted to be a fighter pilot, loving the independent feeling of flying. Still, she understands clearly that being a complete "Lone Wolf"can easily get you and others killed. Like many practitioners of magic, she both dislikes and is a bit scared of the Coalition. It cannot be said that she quite "hates' the Coalition but she would align herself with them except in the most dire of emergencies. The only hatred she probably have are creatures of supernatural evil such as demons but most supernatural creatures and alien races she sees as equals.

Appearance:
Aurora has long golden blond hair with brown highlights which almost surrounds her face like an aurora and is parted on her left side. Her hair is extremely thick and wavy although not really curly. She looks out with curious brown eyes from under golden eyebrows. Even though her eyebrows are golden blond, her eyelashes are extremely long and dark. Her expression seems to show a bit of open cockiness. Combined with a virtually perfect complexion, a wide mouth, and an almost pointed chin makes her appear both very attractive and very intelligent. Her ears are not pierced and she wears no real jewelry. Not really needing makeup, she uses only very light cosmetics including flesh tone lip highlights. She is not particularly tall being around five foot four inches and is very slender with a weight of a bit over a hundred pounds. Even though slender, she has a definitely feminine figure with a very firm figure.
She likes to wear fighter pilots style jump suits including techno-wizard armored jump suits. Her jump suits are styled to show her feminine figure while not appearing to be openly seductive. She prefers the color of olive green and wears patches on her jumpsuit including one for her F-19 stealth fighter. The only weapon she normally wears openly is a pistol which hangs low down on her left hip. Her preferred pistol is a Northern Gun Long Pistol. Often, she will wear a fighter pilots jacket over her jumpsuit.

Background:


Aurora was the first born child of simple laborers in the city of Tolkeen. Aurora had no sisters and instead had three younger brothers. The family were never wealthy but there was enough to eat and the children did get to go to the city school. Aurora was incredibly bright and always fascinated with magic and wanted to become a mage herself. She also enjoyed watching pre-rifts aviation movies and wanted to become a pilot. The problem is that her parents could think of no way of being able to afford for her to become either one of them. They told her that there was no way that the would not be able to afford for her to do either but she had her own plans. She waited until she was sixteen and she told her parents that she was going to seek a teacher on her own. In most places on Rifts Earth, the age of sixteen is consider a nominal adult and it was not quite running away.


She had to work at several menial jobs in order to support herself. She eventually found a Techno-Wizard to teach her but it took several months. She was able to impress the Techno-Wizard with her intelligence and determination. She was an incredible student and finished her training before she was twenty years old. While she was not payed, she realized that her teacher earned huge sums of money created Techno-Wizard items. She then went off to learn to be a pilot and to learn some mechanical and electrical skills that the Techno-Wizard could not teach her. She payed for this but creating small Techno-Wizard items.


Soon after finishing her flying lessons, she found the frame of a pre-rifts aircraft in an old junkyard near her home city of Tolkeen. It turned out that is was from an old air museum and was the frame of a Harrier. Although it was just a frame, she was also able to get some scrap materials from some crashed Coalition Sky Cycles and rebuild the Harrier with the components from them. It took her almost two years to rebuild it but it was an amazing creation when she was done. She decided to take the last name of "Earhart" from pre-rifts legends about an incredible female pilot.


She then adventured as well as working on projects for profit. One of the items she was able to capture was a Coalition Skelebot that she was able to reprogram it. She had it repainted white and a built a vibro-scythe for the robot to use. She used some of the money she made to purchase a nice home in the city of Tolkeen for her family. While adventuring, she worked with a True Atlantian who knew the secrets of tatoo magic and she was given a tatoo of mystic knowledge.


Her skill with aircraft made her well known among techno-wizard circles and got a pretty amazing offer as a result. The Techno-wizard who builds the Merlin Techno-Wizard offered a job to her and she would for him for several years and got her aircraft turned into a Merlin as well. After working with him for a period of time, she decided to go back to being on her own.


Soon after finishing with the developer of the Merlin, she met the designed or the Black Ghost aircraft which was developed from the Pre-Rifts SR-71 Blackbird. Based on the concepts of the Black Ghost combined with the Merlin, she decided to develop a lighter and smaller stealth fighter which combined some of the best abilities of the Black Ghost combined with a fighter design which is more capable of dogfighting and ground attack. She had plenty of help but the initial idea was hers and she worked as hard as any others. The new fighter was named the "F-19 Ghostrider" and appears like the concept of the stealth fighter before the existence of the F-117 was declassified. She built her own fighter and set up a business to build more "Ghostrider" stealth fighters.


Even though her business is thriving, she likes adventuring and so took the prototype of the stealth fighter for her own and decided to go off adventuring once again. Most of the money which she has made with the building of "Ghostrider" fighters, she has reinvested back into the facilities.
