In a small town on a distant planet torn by war, Punkie was raised in a tiny village that offered a refuge for those who wished to escape the violence. Even as a child, Punkie stood out amongst the young ones in her town as a champion of those who might otherwise be wronged. Whether it was something as simple as a disrespectful tone, a recess bully, or a sideways glance towards her classmates, she was the first to speak up and take a stand. It did not matter what the repercussions could have been or who the transgressor was. When Punkie’s hometown was overtaken by opposing forces, she took to the underground and helped form a resistance that eventually sparked the end of hostilities between four opposing territories. After the war, she used her skills to become a bounty hunter, traveling the galaxy in search of those who might inflict their aggressions on the weak and unprotected. Throughout her sector, she is known by her spear with the turquoise shades of her home town blazed upon the stave. A ferocious hunter that is as intelligent as she is deadly, you best keep an eye on her or you might end up impaled.
