Kari Tyrell is an ace fighter-pilot, legendary throughout the Republic for turning the tide at the Battle of White-Rim. Only twenty-three years old, she is the youngest pilot ever to achieve the rank of Commander. Kari's assignment on the Republic frigate Danzig ended when the frigate was destroyed by an Alliance ambush. Kari was rescued from certain death by the crew of Niobe and has now joined them.
Kari is a Caucasian woman of average height and slight build with chin-length red hair and green eyes who is normally attired in little more than a singlet, shorts and no shoes.
Kari is mildly pessimistic and a bit of a cynic but she is easy to get along with and very perceptive with a wisdom that goes far beyond her age. She often lacks the genius and demeanour to act on her perception, and generally displays it with sarcasm.
She can often lack tact and doesn't beat around the bush, but despite her laid back attitude, she suffers post-traumatic stress syndrome that causes her to sometimes experience panic attacks in darkness and see red.
With the Battle of White-Rim Kari became a famous, high-ranking fighter pilot, however she appears less than impressed with it all and doesn't have any interest in fighting though still maintains a love of simply flying.
Despite being born on Gaidana Kari only remembers being raised in space on luxury liners where her father worked as a shuttle pilot. She joined the R.A.S.F. as a fighter-pilot and fought at the Battle of White-Rim in the Fifth Wing based on the Castellan-class carrier Siris, where her actions were instrumental in saving the Darani fleet, earning her promotion to Commander and fame as the "Hero of White-Rim" despite the fact that it was only luck and chance which aided her.
She suffered PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) in the wake of the battle and spent several weeks in therapy on Minear Station before being transferred to the Taratane-class frigate Danzig (at her request) where she served until it was destroyed in an ambush by Alliance forces.
