Lexin Kether comes across as mild mannered, polite and well-informed. He has worked with Captain Jonesy on and off for nearly 5 years. They both take whatever jobs appeal to them and this often pulls them in separate directions and can even place them on opposite sides. However, when they can work together, they do. Kether is usually the one who spreads the rumors about Jonesy’s killer drones.
However, Lexin has another side; he needs to kill people. Once a year usually, sometimes, when it gets bad, several times a year. He is aware his condition can be cured, but he is also aware he will lose the sense of wonder and power that goes along with it. As some form of personal compromise with society, he tries to kill people who are better off dead – criminals, killers, politicians, TV show hosts. But he is not a slave to this rule; sometimes he’ll just grab the next guy.
He ended up in communications by accident – he was pretending to be someone else. He often has to change identity whilst on the run. But Comms suits him and life aboard a battleship suits him – the short term contracts and travel around the galaxy suits his lifestyle choice. He toyed with working toward a Tactical post – all those big guns… but it’s not the same.
Jonesy is fully aware of what Lexin is and doesn’t care – after all – the people he kills are only humans.
