Emilia is fairly young looking, surprisingly so given her age. If anyone questions her about this she will claim it's "the miracle of science" and encourage them not to ask again "or else." In actuality it's the beginnings of one her more minor projects of genetic modification to increase longevity and youthfulness, one of her more tame and innocent projects to be fair but she's proud nonetheless. She's usually wearing a lab coat over some casual clothes, usually a black t-shirt and some simple jeans. When on mission though she sports the outfit pictured above. Made of lightweight but durable material to allow her to be agile enough in fights. However the thing most often seen about her is her cybernetics. Four robotic arms that protrude from her back and from under her lab coat. One small detail that often isn't noticed is that her left seems to glow a bit compared to her right eye.

Emilia has a reputation of being very eccentric, to put it nicely. She shows an almost childlike excitement whenever she has the possibility of getting a look at some new tech or a chance at studying something new. Even connecting with the simplest of robots such as the ones she’s tried making and treating them like people. This makes her quite frustrated with the fact that she hasn’t gotten her hands on any of the Buzzers tech and she has yet to dissect one as much as she’s desired it. Other than her interest in cybernetics, Emilia is a generally upbeat person. To an almost annoying degree. She doesn’t seem to take much seriously and she seems to be all over the place, doing this or that or working on a personal project somewhere on the ship. This causes most new members who haven’t seen her in action worried about her being the primary doctor of the ship.
In actuality though when it comes to her job she is extremely serious. When it comes down to saving a life you won’t find anyone more reliable. Despite no longer having a valid medical license, although she claims she doesn’t need that “official garbage”. She truly does care for the rest of the crew and fully intends to do everything in her power to keep them alive.
There is another side to her that she doesn't show that often. When it comes down to analyzing and breaking down some unknown technology or dissecting something she is meticulous, almost sadistic in how she goes about it. A deranged grin as she carefully cuts through and analyzes every single part of the current subject.

There are two things that you never ask Emilia about, her age and her medical license. Before joining up with Falchion Dr. Moral was considered a prodigy. Breezing through her medical studies and getting her doctorate by the age of 26, she focused on cybernetic studies and is thus an expert on human anatomy and the workings of cybernetic implants. But unfortunately, her passions started becoming an unhealthy obsession.
In her time as a doctor she performed many surgeries, experiments and studies on the human body and involving cybernetics. She was renowned as a brilliant doctor and her life seemed like it would work out well for her. But she changed, no one is sure when or why, but something inside of her changed. She got tired of the monotony of the same things all the time. And despite her efforts towards scientific advancement she felt so hindered by restrictions and wasn’t able to find suitable subjects. So she started working underground, hiring some of the less than reputable mercenary companies out in the stars to bring her some unwilling test subjects from the people they were already targeting. Most of these subjects died, of course, but it was all in the name of science. And she was finally making advancements on her projects.
Unfortunately rumors started to spread that the “good doctor” wasn’t quite living up to her reputation anymore. That she was getting involved in some very shady areas. She was constantly referred to as Dr. Em Moral, or rather it was meant to be Dr. Immoral. Her rightfully earned nickname that she embraces wholeheartedly since joining Falchion. Eventually though she was ready to try out some of her self-made cybernetics on herself. After convincing some of her most trusted colleagues to perform the operation, and paying them handsomely, it was complete. The robotic tentacle-like arms that she had developed were working perfectly. The four of them protruding from her back and neurologically linked, it took a bit of time but after awhile she could finally move them around as naturally as she could her real arms. The original design was fairly simplistic and they basically worked as extra hands, albeit more powerful ones. It wasn’t till after joining Falchion that she upgraded them with combat properties. It was also during this surgery that she had her eye replaced with a cybernetic one and the VI she had been developing implanted into her brain as well.
Unbeknownst to Emilia was that while she was recovering and ecstatic about her creations, the police had finally launched an investigation into the rumors of her inhumane experiments and found evidence against her. Her medical license was revoked and she was arrested. After several nearly successful escape attempts using her new arms she got transferred to a high security prison out in the middle of space. What they didn’t know is that this was all going according to plan for her. While in prison she was sneaky enough to gain access to enough communication to place a message out there, one directed to the group known as Falchion. She’s heard rumors of them and their mission completion rate and hoped that this mission would be interesting enough for them to take, she did offer plenty of money upon its completion after all.
Somewhat to her surprise they actually did show up and rescued her, and after seeing what she could do and hearing of her medical knowledge the captain asked her to join the crew. She accepted in a heartbeat and for the past 7 years has been the crews doctor, as well as enhancing her own cybernetics and learning quite a bit about robotics as well.

Custom Neuro-Link Cyber Arms- These four robotic arms come from her back and each range at 10 feet in length. All are extremely flexible, enough so to easily coil around something with no hindrance, as well as made of extremely durable metal and can take bullets without much damage. The "fingers" can change between being bladed as depicted to being more blunt for grabbing objects without damaging them. The bladed fingers can also join together into one large blade. This isn't the only combat attachment she's added on as she's also added a functionality for the arms to fire lasers from the center. The blades are also fairly good at providing grip on most surfaces, allowing her to climb fairly easily on a lot of surfaces especially since the arms are able to easily support her weight with each one being able to lift around 300 pounds on their own.
Cybernetic Eye- as it implies, her left has been replaced to be completely robotic. Alone it doesn't give much benefits as she hasn't tried outfitting it with any tech other than it being connected to the VI she created.
Virtual Intelligence Receptor Analyzer (VIRA)- VIRA is a Virtual Intelligence that Emilia created and after numerous tests had implanted into her brain. While connected to her cyber eye it can analyze materials used in an object studied or whether unknown materials are present and vital signs and potential damage to patients. It displays this to Emilia through her cyber eye as well as displaying her own vitals and detect damage to her own body. The female voiced VI can also speak all of this to her but as it is fairly simple it doesn't have emotion and gives simple, factual responses. It also has the permission to, if Emilia is knocked unconscious, use its connection to her brain to control the robotic arms in order to keep her safe, prioritizing fleeing and bringing her to safety.
Attack Drones- due to her recent interest in robotics, Emilia has started creating small drones that use the same laser technology as her arms. Since they are so small, around 5 inches in diameter, they barely pack a punch and are used more for distraction or recon via the camera attached which connects to VIRA.
Pistol- In case of emergencies she has a pistol which is usually strapped to her left leg. It holds 12 9mm bullets at a time.
APK (Analyze. Protect. Kill.)- Her robotic dog (pictured above) which is one of her most beloved possessions. This durable hound has three modes. Analyze: in this mode APK is able to enter a stealth mode where it becomes cloaked and can sneak around easier and scans the surrounding area, including hostiles and layout of the area, and transmit that information to Emilia. Protect: this is the standard mode where it sticks close to Emilia and protects her by laying down covering fire with the machine guns mounted on the sides. This mode also has an alternate mode where it stays put as a sentry and alerts Emilia to any movement that it detects. Kill: this mode is when APK rushes and attacks the enemy with either the machine guns or its teeth which are lined with energy, allowing it to rip through metal and other materials easier.

Emilia specializes in the medical field, specifically the workings of cybernetic implants. Thus she is a great doctor and can assist with the repair and upkeep for cybernetics. She also has a decent amount of knowledge into robotics.
Her biggest weakness is EMPs or anything that can cause malfunctions or halt the workings of machinery like her arms.This basically immobilizes her as she can barely support the weight of those arms without the support they provide for walking.
