Riot Grrl

From Human Sphere

Background

Drawn from marginalised neighbourhoods across the Human Sphere, the Riot Grrls are accustomed to street fights and everyday survival. Calling the Beauvoir module of Praxis home, they have coalesced around a radical feminist movement drawing heavily from punk philosophy, aspiring to destroy the dominant Human Sphere society. Though at constant risk of sanction for disrupting Social Energy, the Jurisdictional Command of Bakunin saw the advantage of a module driven to create revolution and asked them to unite the “…baddest bitches in the module, the most infamous, tough, and despicable…” to fight for Bakunin’s interests. The Beauvoir module became the cradle of a fearsome assault unit which is equipped with the best gear available. The Riot Grrls are true daughters of punk and tactical street combat, anarchist feminists with automatic weapons ready to spit in the face of society and jump into combat for strength, revolution, and anarchy.

Riot Grrls wear specific medium combat armor. The pride of Vulkanja module, these armour suits are carefully personalised for Beauvoir Module’s fearsome warriors at no charge, to their exacting specifications. In line with their KIY (Kill It Yourself) philosophy, each Riot Grrl works alongside their armourer and does a significant portion of the work themselves, learning skills they can use for field repairs.


The Beauvoir Module in Praxis was created as a command post and refuge for the most radical of feminist movements. In Beauvoir, the dominant theme is feminism with a combative attitude which draws heavily from punk philosophy and aspires to destroy current Human Sphere society. However, if the original founders of Beauvoir were politically incorrect intellectuals, the majority of the module’s current population consists of girls of Atek origin, excluded from society and the ‘good girl’s’ market. These girls come from the marginal neighborhoods of the Human Sphere, well accustomed to street fights and everyday urban survival. Problem girls who, when leaving the module for Bakunin’s common spaces, are constant sources of trouble and are old acquaintances of the Moderator Corps’ cells.

The Beauvoir Module risked sanctioning for its alteration of the so-called Social Energy, but the Jurisdictional Command of Bakunin was able to see the advantage of having a module driven by the firm purpose of making revolution. The Beauvoir Module was offered the chance to actively participate in the fight, to help in the destruction of the wider Human Sphere society while defending the interests of Bakunin. To compensate for the misbehavior of their adepts and their aggressions against the Social Energy, this cradle of urban warriors has become the seed of a fearsome assault unit. They were asked to unite the “…...worst bitches in the module, the most infamous, tough and despicable...” and were placed in contact with the female Blacksmiths of the Vulkanja Module in order to equip themselves with the best gear available. And so the Riot Grrls were born; authentic daughters of punk, icons of tactical street combat, leading representatives of the “KIY” (Kill It Yourself) philosophy, anarcho-feminists with automatic weapons who jump into combat with ferocious conviction and an attitude that spits in the face of good manners. Strength, Revolution and Anarchy!


Infamous for their daring attitude, zeal, and passion for bringing down the establishment, the Riot Grrls of Praxis’s Beauvoir module are know across the Human Sphere. When Bakunin originally meted the idea of taking the troublesome elements of the Beauvoir module, arming them, and setting them loose on the enemies of the Nomads, there was some general scepticism as to whether the concept would be a success or terrible failure. In the conflicts since, the Riot Grrls have acquitted themselves and silenced any and all critics, coming to represent one of the most dangerous and daring units in the Nomad Military Force. Equipped by the Forgewomen of Praxis’s own Vukanja module, the Riot Grrls go into battle carrying and wearing the best the Black Labs has to offer. The Ognyena armour created for the Riot Grrls is a masterpiece of design and functionality. Self-tightening, it forms a close second skin, able to distribute high amounts of kinetic energy and highly resistant to being cut or pierced. Positioned throughout the inside the Ognyena are a series of slow release chemical delivery systems, most often loaded with a mix of hyper-dynamic enablers and medical packs. This ensures the Riot Grrls can react to an enemy before they even start to attack. Designed specifically to be protective while augmenting rather than restricting movement, the Ognyena armour might not be the heaviest armour available, but it suits the requirements of the Riot Grrls perfectly.
