Name:Kara Thrace
Birthdate:Nov 8

Uncommonly conscientious for a seaman, and endued with a deep natural reverence, the wild watery loneliness of his life did therefore strongly incline him to superstition; but to that sort of superstition, which in some organization seems rather to spring, somehow, from intelligence than from ignorance... His far-away domestic memories of his young Cape wife and child, tended to bend him... from the original ruggedness of his nature, and open him still further to those latent influences which, in some honest-hearted men, restrain the gush of dare-devil daring, so often evinced by others in the more perilous vicissitudes of the fishery. "I will have no man in my boat," said Starbuck, "who is not afraid of a whale." By this, he seemed to mean, not only that the most reliable and useful courage was that which arises from the fair estimation of the encountered peril, but that an utterly fearless man is a far more dangerous comrade than a coward.
——Moby-Dick, Ch. 26

FLAGS: Equus

Kara Thrace left her post in the Equus military at the direction of then-President Laura Roslin. Roslin had had a vision directing her to seek two prophets who would be instrumental in saving not only Equus but all the worlds. Though it was no easy decision, in the end Kara had to put the potential safety of the 'verse ahead of her career, and she left Equus in a stolen ship in search of only the gods knew what. She found herself aboard the Argo thinking it would end up as no more than a waystation on her journey to the prophets. When Roslin was voted out of office, she joined Kara on board, and Kara discovered that she had inadvertently found what she'd been sent to seek : two prophets from a lost world on a mission to save the world.
