Mistress Tara N. Chaynes (actual name Tara Wipette) left the darker side of the holovid entertainment industry in search of adventure and fortune. After all, the work tends to get overly competitive as a gal gets older...Having a degree in psychology has helped her in both fields, as has a basic working knowledge of both the medical and computer professions. Her combat prowess isn't the greatest, at least not in a firefight. But up close and personally, she can get down and dirty with her extensive experience in open handed attacks as well as the use of blunt objects, particularly with her mastery of the whip and chain (no negative weapon modifiers apply when using either).
Many of her adversaries that she has faced have recognized her from "not-family friendly" holo-vids, but she manages to use such moments of hesitation quickly to her advantage. Coworkers tend to warm up to her quickly, as she is both demure and witty, not to mention the usual ulterior motives of male human (and occassional yazirian) comrades.
