Pre-PC History

Very little is known about Temperance before she signed on with the Ascension.

Her full name is Temperance Elise Cullen, and she was born May 4th, 2502 on the planet Hera, near Serenity Valley. She was left an orphan, and adopted by her uncle Braden Cullen. In 2506, when Braden enlisted in the Independent Army, and moved her to the nearby planet Deadwood. Braden arranged for a Sheppard to look after her while he was gone, and then left the planet.

Braden Cullen returned to Deadwood after the war, bringing along with him a young Chinese woman named Bai Ling, and a man named Sketch. Sheppard Grant moves on to Greenleaf.

In 2515, Sketch too took off. That same year, Temperance got both of her thumbs smashed, as a result of witnessing a crime, and calling the police.

In 2520, Braden Cullen, and Bai Ling were shot dead on a job. Temperance inherited everything, but after a year she managed to sell everything.

Temp used the money to hitch a ride to Greenleaf, and then to Persephone.

In early 2521, Temperance signed on to the Ascension

PC History

Temperance signed on with the Ascension, but several months after she joined up, the ship's doctor, Maleagant Ironside took on a new ward named Alexandrite that Temperance didn't get on with, so on April 8th, 2522, she left the Ascension, and signed on with the Chong Sheng


  • Temperance hates Paquin more than she hates any other port in the 'verse, for unknown reasons.
