This is a character that I can't think of a name for yet-- she's pretty new. I'm open to suggestions! In a nutshell, she is an android member of a starship crew. The crew is all of a race of winged people. In their society, to remove a person's wings is punishment for the most serious of crimes, and since she was made without wings for technical reasons, she, and all other androids, see themselves on that level of society. She carries within her a terrible sadness and made these 'wings' for herself out of spare parts and her crewmates discarded feathers. It is her dark little secret-- these wings are the only things that make her feel 'real'.
