"Thou hast the keys of Paradise, oh, just, subtle, and mighty opium!"
- Thomas De Quincey, Confessions of an English Opium-Eater, Part II


Coming out of the worst ex-felon indentured servitude ghettos of Canceron, Khloe's past is littered with failures characteristic of a youth troubled with gangs, violence, and drug use. Through exemplary dedication and prime example set by her fellow Colonial servicemen and women, she has made something of herself that doesn't come from a needle or a bottle. Stoic, reserved, and fiercely devoted to her duties, there is nothing more important than the Colonial Fleet to Khloe.

Who She Is


According to the Myers-Briggs (Jung) Typology test, Khloe is an INTJ, commonly known as The Mastermind.

Introverted: 56 Intuitive: 38 Thinking: 75 Judging: 78

INTJs apply (often ruthlessly) the criterion "Does it work?" to everything from their own research efforts to the prevailing social norms. This in turn produces an unusual independence of mind, freeing the INTJ from the constraints of authority, convention, or sentiment for its own sake.

Physical Features

Tall and athletic, Khloe "Poppy" Vakos stands with squared shoulders and a confidence that could melt Battlestar bulkheads. Her long brown hair is worn in a single Colonial Fleet regulation braid that ends at her upper back between her shoulder blades. Carefully sculpted eyebrows have an elegant upward angle to them, causing her stern gray-blue eyes to regard the world with an increased cold stoicism and an almost elite air. Rarely smiling, her unpainted lips are typically drawn tightly together in some manner of scowl or rare smirk. A strongly-defined jawline ends on a slightly pointed chin.

Khloe is dressed in a Colonial officer's uniform. The medium blue jacket is tucked into matching trousers, with a black, brass-buckled belt around the waist. A softer, darker blue fabric decorates the shoulders. The black buttons are off-center, running up the right hand side of the tunic. The left breast sports a single button-down pocket, above which are her flight qualification wings. On her left sleeve is the black, gold and white Battlestar Cerberus patch. The pins on her collar show a rank of Captain.


  • Khloe doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, doesn't eat meat. It's a wonder she derives any enjoyment from life at all.
  • Khloe is fair with a pistol but she prefers hand-to-hand combat. Especially with knives and switchblades, although blades are illegal to brandish in the Colonial Fleet.
  • Khloe has a "thing" for knives and sharp implements. What that "thing" is, is left to the imagination.
  • On Khloe's back, above her left shoulder blade, is light scarring from when she had a tattoo removed years ago.
  • In the rare time Khloe allows herself downtime, she's often found in some forgotten corner of the ship with a sketch pad and some pencils. She never lets anyone see what she sketches.
  • When tired or run down, Khloe has a habit of scratching at her left arm, around the inside of her elbow.


On the Grid

Known Associates

Psyche_icon.jpg Lieutenant Psyche "Bubbles" Devlin: Bubbles and I started off on the wrong foot. It's those irritating pink sheets, I think, and her general disregard for military protocols. But, she's not a bad person, nor is she a bad pilot. And she's so… girly. Feh.
Devlin_icon.jpg Ensign Alex "Decoy" Devlin: Unimpressed with him so far. He's a better stick than most nuggets, I'll give him that much. I do not like the idea of coddling nuggets, newly married or not. Frak him. Gods, frak him. He hasn't even done anything to piss me off lately and I just want him to show a shred of emotion when I'm in his face, screaming at him.
Wade_icon.jpg Lieutenant Wade "Drips" Duncan: Drips is an able Viper pilot and I'm glad to have him back in the rotation. He's a straight-shooter. I like that. No questions, just answers. He's a definite "how high" on the way up, and that's my kind of officer. He's also proving to be a voice of reason, lately… this I need. I've come to rely on him more than I'd care to admit.
Andrea_icon.jpg Lieutenant Andrea "Hosedown" Demarcos: Raptorball. Triad. She has very strange notions as to how pilots should be spending her time. Unfortunately, the CAG likes Raptorball, and now I owe Splash because of her. And if I catch her in my locker again, the next time I beat her ass won't involve boxing gloves. Frak her, you hear me? FRAK HER. I'm so sick of her manipulative crap that's thinly disguised as reaching out. She just wants to be a merry prankster and make me miserable.— Seems she's turned it down from 11 with that new… old… hair color. We'll see how long it lasts.
Bran_icon.jpg Lieutenant JG Linus "Pens" Bran: Leyla abused him verbally. I abused him physically. Ask him about the time he lost a bet about "dry erase markers".
Pallas_icon.jpg Lieutenant Pallas "Spiral" Ellinon: A drunk, and a boor. He represents everything I used to be; he is a constant reminder why I can't slip into old habits. Although, what he gave me… I should just get rid of it.
Malone_icon.jpg Lieutenant JG Thomas "Splash" Malone: Luckiest son of a bitch that I know. If he flies a Viper as good as he plays Triad, then he should make Top Gun any day now.
Leyla_icon.jpg Lieutenant Leyla "Sweet-Pea" Aydin: Sweetiepea and I have frakked up more piwates and more illegal mining operations than you can stamp on a Raptor hull. She taught me six wonderful words: "Fly it like you stole it."
Cidra_icon.jpg Lt. Colonel Cidra "Toast" Hahn: I knew Cidra before her husband died. She knew me before I had made a commitment to be better… to be more like her. We've both drawn inward and become sharper, more focused soldiers. We are as a blade, tempered by grief. Something's changed lately with Cidra. I can't put my finger on it. I hope she figures it out before she ends up getting killed. Whatever it is, she's been less… mental. More like her old self. I've missed our talks. Never mind, I find out that she's got the veneer of a Gemenese priest but the morals of an Aerilon farmgirl. Her judgment is questionable, at best.
