Ellen Riggs is the foreman (or forewoman, if you prefer) of a crew assigned to The Boiler, an underground terraforming station on Seventh Circle.
Riggs came by her indenture honestly – she picked a fight with local security after she was thrown out of a bar in the company town of Yuva on Hera. Her particular skillset – engineering – saved her from a long stretch in the bauxite mines or plantations surrounding Yuva when recruiters from the Terraforming Consortium convinced her contract holder to transfer her indenture to them.
After several years of dangerous work terraforming blackrocks, she’s not sure if the Consortium did her a favour or not.
Riggs is grateful for one thing – her long stretch of isolation has all but cured her alcoholism.
