Academy Leaders

irondangelIronAngel Forge
Ship: MLS D. Shovel
Rank: Captain
Teams: Story & Events

IronAngel Forge, Chief of Engineering at the SSA, is now the Captain for the MLS D. Shovel. Known for teaching students blacksmithing, medieval weaponry construction, and electronics, should they ever need it. His writing strengths come from his ability to adapt situations he’s encountered into fiction, and research – lots of research, we lost him in the library a couple times kind of research. In his free time, he’s always making music and tuning audio to perfection, tabletop gaming, as well as occasionally putting on a fire effects show for anyone who will watch. And while he will tell you countless times that he’s not a role model, he teaches the students things they would never learn elsewhere. In a mostly safe environment.


Rue.Tylar
Ship: MLS D. Shovel
Rank: Commander
Teams: Planning, Story, Editing, Mechanics & Events

Rue.Tylar, communications officer, linguist, and tinkerer is aboard the MLS D. Shovel. Acting as Executive Officer, or XO, she runs the ship from the bridge, seeing to the daily operations, sending and receiving communications from the Academy and other ships. If she isn’t teaching the cadets a new language, so that they have a backup if their BabelFish Translator goes out, she’s usually trying to knit or dabbling in other creative endeavours. Her writing strengths lie in her imagination, and her stories all have a strong voice to them. Assigned to the D. Shovel, because she will always help out wherever needed. Her current pet project is to build a better BabelFish, as she feels the original one lacks in tone and inflection of many foreign and alien languages.


Utoxin
Ship: MLS D. Shovel
Rank: Commander
Teams: Mechanics & Events

Utoxin, the SSA’s own “Mr. Universe” or data collector who has a handy knack of being able to intercept almost any transmission, is now serving aboard the MLS D. Shovel. While he says he’s not an evil genius, he did create Timmy; so we’re not so sure about that. His writing strengths come from his ability to seemingly pull a story out of thin air. When not collecting data and making sure the signal can’t be stopped, he enjoys using Ham Radios to communicate with others back on Earth, programming, and hiking on planets with Earth type atmospheres. Utoxin also has a passion for astronomy; his love of the stars brought him to the SSA.


Eldarwen
Ship: MLS H. Viking
Rank: Captain
Teams: Story & Events

Eldarwen once the Foreign or Human/Alien Liaison at the SSA is now the Captain of the MLS H. Viking.  Although her reputation paints her to be fierce and in killer heels, cadets will find she is rather approachable, very laid back and charming. They were right about the heels though, for they are always heard before anyone sees her. She was known for forging many alliances; and is quite fond of keeping in touch with most of the races and beings she has encountered. Eldarwen’s writing strengths come from her rich descriptions, which make everything about her stories feel real to those who read them. When not making sure the Viking runs smoothly, or pursuing her own writing, she is rarely found without something to read in hand.


Aka-click
Ship: MLS H. Viking
Rank: Lt. Commander
Teams: Art, Story, Planning & Events

Aka-Click, usually a professor of Navigation at the academy, is now the Navigator for the MLS H. Viking. Painter of pixels extraordinaire, and unofficial Chief Distraction officer. Click has been teaching the cadets how to navigate the various star systems with everything from a map and a window, to the high tech systems on our ships. Her stories all have deeply detailed characters, and she can craft a story out of nothing as well as with months of planning and outlining. In her spare time, Aka-click enjoys dog competitions and many outdoor activities on planets with a viable earth-like atmosphere.


kdsKdskid007
Ship: MLS H. Viking
Rank: Ensign
Teams: Mechanics, Math-ing & Events

Kdskid007, serves the SSA in two capacities. She is head of Hufflepuff house at Hogwarts, and there is responsible for making sure we get messages and supplies from our sister school. Hogwarts has helped make many of the advances in the SSA including our advanced fuel and plotbunny pens. Kdskid007 also sees to the transition of any students that want to switch between SSA and Hogwarts. Her other function is aboard the MLS H. Viking, and there she is ensign in Engineering. We’re almost certain she has a time turner but no one can prove it. Aboard the Viking she is usually found in the engine room with grease smudges befitting an engineer. Her writing strengths lie in her flexibility when her characters go wherever they wish. In her free time she likes to read, LARP, tabletop game, and knit. It is said she has knitted enchanted scale mail gloves for herself and some very special students.


elyndraElyndra
Ship: MLS P. Bunny
Rank: Captain
Teams: Planning, Story, Website, Communication & Events

Elyndra is the keeper of the plotbunny pen at the SSA, and now Captain of the MLS P. Bunny. Primarily the caretaker and wrangler of the brightly coloured little plotbunnies back at the Academy, Elyndra has brought a miniature pen with her aboard the P. Bunny. Teaching her crew, and the recruits, that there should be no plot bunny left unexplored, or at least brought back for a future story. Her writing strengths are in her strong characters and her expertly crafted dialogue. Lover of all things shiny, keeper of the fictional histories, and scribbler of words. And while she may chase her plot bunnies to the far reaches of space, she always makes her way back to the academy… Eventually.


Shewolf13
Ship: MLS P. Bunny
Rank: Lieutenant
Teams: Story & Events

Shewolf13, the ever present and stern looking security officer from the SSA is now the acting Chief of Security on the MLS P. Bunny. Usually found somewhere either on ship, or at the academy, with her back to a wall and arms crossed across her chest. Lt. Wolfy is fond of teaching the recruits various forms of self-defence and tactical thinking, to make sure they can get out of any precarious situation they find themselves, or their characters, in. Her writing strengths are in her immersive world building and rich character building. And while there was a rumour started that she would bite, or eat unruly cadets, we are almost certain that’s not true…. Probably.


Skybluefusion
Ship: MLS P. Bunny
Rank: Lt. Jr. Grade
Teams: Planning, Coordination, Communication & Events

Skybluefusion serves as Chief Inspiration Officer, both at the SSA and onboard the MLS P. Bunny. She is always around to start a word war, help a recruit through a particularly difficult plot twist, or for the ever important Disney questions. Aboard the MLS P. Bunny, she makes sure everyone is still on task and that they’re where they should be. Serving as a coordinator, among other things. Her writing strengths are in her diversity, as she really is a “Jacqueline of all Trades” and uses her imagination to take us all places we would never see otherwise. With an aptitude for scheduling, she makes sure everyone back at the SSA can keep following our adventures as she uses social media to bring the SSA to the masses. And above all keeps pushing on no matter what life throws her way.


WitchyRobyn
Ship: MLS P. Ninja
Rank: Captain
Teams: Planning, Story, Communication & Events

WitchyRobyn is the primary Raptor Wrangler and current Captain of the MLS P. Ninja. She cares for the crew with all the care a mother raptor has. A proud supporter and frequent user of the plot ninja in her own workings, she feels right at home on the P. Ninja. Her hobbies include all forms of string, (no sorry, YARN) which is to include knitting, crocheting, and spinning. We expect the P. Ninja crew to return with handmade sweaters with their initials on them. Her writing is known for putting her characters through all manner of torture and pain to bring them through for great plot twists and character development. She also runs the Delay Station both at the SSA and onboard with the unofficial title: Queen Procrastinator.


Kistoway
Ship: MLS P. Ninja
Rank: Lt. Commander
Teams: Story, Editing, Planning & Events

Kistoway, usually a communications instructor at the SSA, is now the Comms officer on the MLS P. Ninja. With an affinity for almost anything domesticated and feline-like from all over the galaxy, and a level of klutziness rarely seen, she is well known to all members of the SSA. Aboard the MLS P. Ninja, she makes sure all the communications get routed where they should, and always has time to help a recruit refine some of their writings. Her writing strengths are her ability to do amazing things under restrictive deadlines (usually because of procrastination) and a truck ton of research. Not even kidding, she’s who we send in when we lose IronAngel Forge.


Alainainthesky
Ship: MLS P. Ninja
Rank: Ensign
Teams: Art & Events

Alainainthesky is the photojournalist for the MLS P. Ninja. She is king of selfies, and teacher of various subjects back at the academy. A truely well rounded novelist, her storytelling strengths lie in superbly crafted dialogue and well-rounded characters. In her free time, Alainainthesky enjoys drawing, painting and gaming. She’ll never say no to spending time researching her favourite subjects and befriending felines. With her high tolerance for chaos, and an innate ability to find the calm inside the storm, she’s a perfect addition to the Ninja ranks.
