Faye Valentine is a bounty huntress. Her entire past is veiled in mystery; her age and place of birth are unknown or unclear. An alluring figure, good looks, and an unstoppable mouth are her greatest weapons. She is an audacious and fearless egotist; utterly pragmatic, she is pushy and resilient no matter what the situation. Gambling is her hobby; cheating her speciality. In a world where money is everything, she has no scruples about doing whatever it takes to get by.
Faye gives free reign to her desires and doesn't let particulars bother her. She freely divulges that she has a massive debt -- one which is into astronomical figures. Faye is an indomitable figure, on occasions taking an aggressive or threatening attitude, who tries to get a lot of enjoyment out of life. She is also a capable markswoman. The body of her spaceship, Red Tail, a model used for military patrols and by various planetary law-enforcement forces, is fully-outfitted with an array of weapons.
A lady far too hot to handle, even her innocent, almost child-like smile can appear palpably dangerous on occasion. There are also times, however, when she reveals a lonesome aspect to her character, as she searches for her unknown past, a past that money cannot buy.
