They call her a lady, but she's far from well-mannered. Lady Sterk is another character from the comic series that I keep going on about. Lady Sterk is a member of the same mercenary guild as Kira. She's a little shorter than Kira, but is a little tougher and short-fused. She isn't too much of a talker.
Her weapon and clothing will probably change over time. It took a long time to settle on a hair color. She floated between red, pink, blue, and then to black. We decided that given her totally punk appearance, she's going to be dying her hair a bunch throughout the series.
