i'm gonna i'm gonna do the thing so! imma words abt my space station a lil! parvin/seven sisters station parvin is the collective name of the seven* helmsmen that make up seven sisters station. no matter the hatchnames of the individual components, the name of the helm as a collective is always parvin. in addition to their duties managing the busy space station on which they work, the only one of it’s size in their sector, they also help to moderate a support forum for the quadrants of helms run by their helmstech, astfel bahram. the pilots are as follows- halcyn danica she, yellow, 11 halcyn's the second youngest component of parvin, and sometimes she still gets silly ideas about leaving! astfel's made sure that she can't manage to make her ideas a reality, mind, but sometimes she's gotten fairly close. terope (aister arevik+sarope equzki) they, rust (13 and 12, respectively) terope is a tandem helm that no longer registers that they're tandemed! they're just one component of the station that happens to have two bodies. celano hinata he, olive, 18 celano's a burnout who's only kept around because astfel's fond of him. now that he's no longer the station, he has a fair number of problems, both physical and psychological. helms aren't meant to live outside their columns, after all. astfel's a good helmstech, and can keep him alive, but he can't make celano any less of a fucking wreck. elktra youtah she, olive, 17 elktra was a singer before she got helmed. she's pretty wrapped up in parvin by now, but that bits of herself that are still hers miss singing. she hums sometimes, but her voice is pretty fucked from disuse. maiyah tessni she, brown, 13 maiyah's the one who's put the most effort into becoming what she was hatched and trained and installed to be out of all of them, including terope. she's the glue that helps bind them all together into one relatively cohesive whole. merope chanry they, brown, 20 merope, as the oldest helm in parvin, has final say on the shots that get called, at least when it comes to shots that helms are allowed to call. they've managed to stay separate enough to maintain their own sense of identity out of sheer force of will. tayget korray ey, yellow, 10 tayget used to have a retrofitted crop duster that ey could plug into and do sweet tricks in. ey were a stunt pilot, and the retrofitting that ey had to do to make the duster psionic-compatible was wildly illegal. naturally i had to put the stunt pilot in a stationary helming position 8) astfel bahram he, teal, 30 astfel considers himself to be in a relationship with parvin- not the individual helms, parvin as a whole. he sees parvin as an entity that doesn't depend on any one helm, though he does sometimes get fond of individual parts of the station. see celano.
