Character Background: Doctor Frederica Frankenstein is a name immediately recognizable to anyone native the the 20th century and later. For those of the 19th century, her surname brings up horrifying images of her grandfather’s works with the reanimation of human corpses and his subsequent adventures in the Earth’s polar regions.

Frederica herself is a native of some unspecified American off-world colony, and has, in her lifetime, greatly surpassed the accomplishments of her predecessors, building off his work and the work of many other prominent Victorian Era scientists. Cutting edge pharmaceuticals, ground breaking medical procedures and highly advanced mind-machine interfaces are a few of the things that have made her famous. Cloning, robotics, alien and human experimentation, and an affiliation with the criminal underworld of Bernard’s Planet are only a few of the things that have made her infamous.
