Disclaimer: I do not own Pitch Black, I only own Nova Rhea

Name: Nova Rhea (Ray)

Age: 16

Appearance: Medium brown skin, dark brown eyes, dark brown, mid-back length hair. 5'1"

Abilities: She has sensitive senses, like that of a blind person but she's not; her eyes, however, are normal. The down side of this being that loud noises can actually cause her physical pain, and her sense of smell can sometimes be a bad thing if she's in areas where bad odors are at their peak, or if she's near people who aren't concerned about their personal hygiene.

Rhea found herself walking aboard the Hunter-Gratzner with several other passengers. Some were staff, some were normal passengers, and some were convicts.

Everyone that boarded had to be put into cryo-stasis chambers, because the journey was going to be far and long.

The passengers were being escorted to their cryo-stasis chambers a group at a time. One of the chambers caught Rhea's attention, because it seemed to harbor a beast of a man. Every muscle in his body was bulging under his tanned skin, he stood about 6'0" or so, maybe taller, he had a shaved head, and was decked out in all black attire. He had his eyes covered and had what looked to be a horse bit in his mouth, and was chained up as well. And though he had a blindfold over his head, he seemed to follow the group as they passed by his chamber.

To answer the question of what category Rhea fell under as a passenger on the ship, would be a convict.

Like the guy chained up in his cryo-stasis chamber, Rhea was also decked out in all black. She wore a black wife beater, black cargo pants, and black mid-top converse.

Rhea had heard that going into cryo-stasis was like going into a coma, and she heard that when someone goes into a coma, it only feels like they've been out for a few minutes, when in reality they could have been out for a few years.

As Rhea got into her chamber she was told that she would be ejected once they got to where it was they were going, and would be handed over to whichever slam was supposed to be receiving her.

Rhea's last moments of freedom would involve her sleeping in a cryo-stasis chamber. Every teenage girl's dream.

Rhea had been out for what seemed like 10 minutes when she started hearing a really loud alarm go off, and saw red lights flashing through her eyelids.

"Seriously?" Rhea said, thoroughly annoyed at the noise and lights.

Rhea was ejected from her chamber and had to stand against it to keep her balance. Rhea looked around and saw everything was in ruins, which woke her up out of her half sleep.

"What? What the hell is going on?" Rhea said panicked.

Rhea looked around to see if anyone else had been ejected from their chambers. If they had been, then they had already left out of that part of the ship, or what was left of it since one whole side of it was gone. Rhea walked/stumbled around the ship, and ended up walking past the chamber of the man who she had labeled, 'The Beast'. It was empty. The glass had been smashed so Rhea could only assume that, 'The Beast', forced his way out.
