Jun is a former college student who lost her parents at a young age to mysterious circumstances on a suborbital flight. She quit college to try and join various space programs for colonization or exploration. After being repeatedly rejected (because she is a college drop out and crackpot) she became convinced that there is an alien conspiracy behind many of the missing or lost colonies, her parents knew something and that is why she isn’t ever accepted.
She has however managed to get various jobs in a variety of places because her piloting skills are so instinctively good. Her politics and quirks keep her out of the corporate or military sectors, but she’s flown everything from seaplanes to fast cargo shuttles. She’s also known for a few hairy rescue flights in orbit around Mars and one infamous joy ride in the vintage VSS Unity.
