"Even as a young child, Kendra Novar had a particular affinity for complex calculations. She successfully sliced her first computer system at age seven, and by the time she reached adulthood she had amassed a fortune in ill-gotten credits–assets that were lost to her when she was finally captured and jailed. Recognizing her potential, the Republic offered Kendra the chance to put her skills to use for the navy, which is where the young savant truly started to shine. Exuberant, innovative and sentimental, Kendra popularized the naming of a particular evasive ship maneuver–the “Koiogran Turn”–after her home system of Koiogra. She sometimes feels the tug of her old life, but it’s never enough for her to foolishly scrap this second chance."
