Vesper introduces himself to any newcomers.  "An airship this should be interesting."
He smiles to Alex and then to the others. "Were going to get some more cold iron on the way I hope."

Looking at Anne, Alex responds, "Not a true sniper but a
      markswoman myself. I have been working as the team's armorer as
      well. More of a ranger myself however. Pleased to make your
      acquaintance?" Her JA-12 is a pretty good sized rifle as well. 

Any strange reaction out of her dagger? 

The Coalition ranger can but shake her head. How can a good
      Coalition girl get involved with so much magic. She has heard of
      line ships and even seen pictures of them but has never
      encountered them. She has seen otehrs dress in as fantastic a
      clothing (ooc: I have a person who dresses in what is effectively
      a Napoleonic British Naval uniform)  

"Hello captain, I do not understand why are going to see whales
      though," Alex responds (ooc: Don't think Wales has been used as a
      location in her presence before.)

>Semi-OOC: She pretty much responds in kind to the crowd; If one of the guys gropes, she gropes back ("adequate", "meh, too small, must ripen", etc), and so forth.
>OOC: If anyone checks her out with any kind of See Aura ability, she's about as strongly supernatural as that 'little girl' that the party is dragging around, she's NOT alive, lacks active magic and the ability to cast spells but has psionics, and has no other anomalies or sickness.  For those who can detect such things, she's not evil.
