Cori blushed as he was described as the "hot Inari" then smiled at Jessamine as Erica introduced him as the person she loved. He didn't smile at the casual mention of people who wanted him dead. Not that he hadn't accepted this as part of being with Erica he just didn't like being reminded all too often. After he had been introduced and thoroughly looked up and down Cori allowed Erica and Jessamine some time to catch up. Regardless of where they went next he doubted the Captain would be disembarking her before he'd had a chance to get to know her.

Catherine regarded Jessamine thoughtfully for a few moments, thinking it through. There wasn't too much to think about. Most of her senior team came from the days when she was undercover as a cargo ship captain and she'd accepted some of those despite potentially dangerous or questionable pasts. Her system of an aptitude test related to the position they wanted to take on her crew along with a b ackground check using Terazed intelligence, followed up by a three-month probation worked well with weeding out the troublemakers and unsuitable from those who made good crewmembers. With that in mind Cath nodded. "All right, there will be conditions. Aptitude test, background check, a probationary period... but first, what kind of skills do you have? What kind of role do you think you could play aboard the Path of Dawn?" She asked.

Jessamine told the Captain about some of her previous "jobs"...mostly the ones that involved fighting and protecting, although she did mention she might be fairly good at removing dangerous, sentient obstacles as well as infiltration. She mentioned the dog grooming, religious sister, and secretary to show she wasn't all about violence, but left out the exotic dancer. That had been purely for economics and entertainment. She wouldn't mind the testing and probationary period, but did suggest that in order to evade her father she "might" have use several aliases.

"I guess it all boils down to I can fight, I can protect, and I can be nearly anyone you want...within reason," she added, holding up her arms to show her boneblades in her medbay bed. "I can't not be Nietzschean," she admitted, "but other than that...,"

Jessamine trailed off. She realized Erica was staring at her and she shrugged, her long read hair falling over her shoulders. Erica had told her to be honest, so Jessa had complied.

Catherine watched and listened as Jessamine outlined most of her skills and previous jobs. An individual that had learnt to be adaptable and multi-skilled in order to survive in an unforgiving universe. She understood. "That you can fight is a good thing." She said finally. "Restoring the Commonwealth isn't exactly a safe profession so we could use another fighter to accompany us on missions. Occasionally we've used covert operations to achieve our goals so yes it looks like we have a potential place for you on the crew." Here Cath thought back to the way she'd endorsed Athena's talents in order to enable a change of leadership in the Caspian pride, which had brought them into the Commonwealth along with many worlds and military fleets. "When you're recovered you can do the basic competency test then we can start assigning you shifts." She continued.
