The Black Belle is one of the more famous mercenary ships of the Rimward Territories. She was originally laid down at a tug and pilot ship to assist large transports into star dock but has undergone extensive modifications. She is now a de facto strike fighter, a reasonably agile ship able to traverse FTL travel independently.
This de facto status places the ‘Belle and her crew in high demand. With a maximum occupany of five, the female crew of the ‘Belle live in close quarters whenever on a contract. Although they face jibes and derision for their gender and the colour scheme of their vessel, many a overconfident man has seen the error of his ways via a boot to the groin. The men who pick fights with the ‘Belle in space don’t get off so easy; her combination of particle cannons for short-range destruction and STS missiles for long range engagements have been the end of many an overconfident rival.
It is rumoured the crew of the ‘Belle has harboured Ex-Agency Assests in the past – namely the blind, telekenetic known as Blindside. There is a bounty for any information on her whereabouts, though most hunters who might collect it are wise enough not to target the Black Belle on their own.
