Belinda Bertholini was riduculed extensively, being a larger stocky human growing up in the lower side of Buckerton. She was schooled at Buckerton Vocational Tech and learned a bit of the technical trade, but her claim to fame entails signing on with various ameteur wrestling and other such gladiatorial entertainment tri-vid circuits under the surname of "Big Bertha", a personae made famous by her often repeated quip of "A gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do". This was a lucrative business for her, but like all fads it didn't last long.
She eventually landed a ship's technician stint with a local passenger vessel destined to explore a new world, the SS Serena Dawn. She served under the engineering staff, maintaining the various pieces of equipment and systems aboard the liner. However, prior to landing that job she was approached by several members of the Star Devil piracy ring and as such she agreed to forward intel of the ship's layout and flight schedule, thus enabling the ease in which the pirates could take the ship later.
She escaped Volturnus before the sathar arrived, and remains at large. She has arrest warrants issued by Star Law in Truane's Star and Zebulon, as well as being wanted for questioning for suspicions of activity in several other systems.
