The Omega short stories all feature a main character Selaynia and her telepathic wolf partner Shadowmist.
SPECIES: Canthralian (Humanoid)
RANK: Omega Agent – rank unknown
PLACE OF BIRTH: Grey Shadows Clan, Canthrales
A tall, slender woman with gray eyes and long silver hair. Usually described as willowy by those who first meet her. Despite her fragile and extravagant appearance there is a cold hardness in her soul that others see reflected in the steel gray of her eyes. She prefers to dress in a tight black jumpsuit with silver ornamentation; two daggers show at the top of her knee-high black boots. She is an expert in hand-to-hand combat techniques and prefers to use edged weapons to directed energy weapons, though she does carry a small, personal phaser (Omega issue that can’t be picked up on sensors). Despite her remarkable appearance she is highly capable and has a way of blending into the background when she desires.
Selaynia was originally created as member of Section 31 for a Deep Space Nine story I wrote for the Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Contest several years ago. That was eventually re-written into an original universe and now several more stories have been written about her and her wolf partner - with several more being planned.
