History & Background (Biography)[edit]

Parents and Legal Guardians[edit]

  • Khikha Alammikhu-Kinkaid
  • Brian Kinkaid

Brian Kinkaid was born on Gabrael and moved to Ikhaba as a Ling Standard Products Administration Clerk. Khikha Alammikhu-Kinkaid was a Nurse from Khouth who moved to Ikhaba as a base nurse on short term contract. They stayed for the rest of their lives.

Early Years[edit]

Ikhaba is not a planet with great gravity and this was reflected in the slim and willowy figure of Sarah. The family was not rich, and never would be on two LSP salaries - they supplemented their income by keeping animals in the yard. As an LSP world, the main language in use was Anglic, but Sarah's mother spoke Vilani about the house and Sarah used to converse with the Aekhu Vargr prospectors picking up their tongue as young children do.

The prevalence of computers about the house meant some familiarity, and driving was obligatory for teenagers wanting to have some freedoms. School was more missed than attended - "Having a good time" and "Panning for Gold" being favoured occupations. He mother ensured a basic ability to patch-up her friends and herself in case of injury.

Military Service[edit]

The uncertainties of the Vargr incursions in Corridor Sector and the expansionist policies of the United Followers of Augurgh in neighbouring systems meant that Sarah had no problems finding a job - Volunteering for the Ikhaban Defence Force on her 18th Birthday. After a year of training, garrison duties and parade duties, a buccaneering group from the Vargr Extents decided to raid the LSP compound on Ikhaba. The raiding forces were eventually seen off by the 61st Fleet and the 444th Imperial Army Tank Regiment, but Sarah was one of the "Brave Defenders" - awarded an MCUF in her hospital bed for her activities in the battalion's Sniper/Recon squad.

After 4 years in the "Colonials" Sarah transferred into the 229th Imperial Army Lift Infantry Regiment ('B' Company, 3rd Battalion), which was deployed in the Khouth Raid of 1127 as backup for the Imperial Marines. She spent much of her time working with the Company Armourer and patrolling the stations and orbitals that form the majority of the habitations of Khouth.

The rapport that she established with the locals on Khouth was noticed by her superiors and she was later recruited into the Ashisha Maakerni, an agency being run by the Deneb Sector's Imperial Army Intelligence department to gather information from the Corridor Sector and to undertake specific acts of mayhem. Placed on Khouth she insinuated her way into the lower echelons of the Dzarrgh Federate's government - she was, at one point, arrested on charges of "Breaking and Entering" and jailed briefly having given the impression of being on the hunt for food, rather than her real mission of looking for names of government double-agents in the Ida.

Other activities in this role are (of course) redacted.
