Junlei Tennyson is a self described engineer-turned-captain and is the leader of Groundbreaker, the only community in Halcyon operating outside The Board's control. She harbours a strong dislike for the Board due to their continued attempts to exert control over Groundbreaker, and because she believes they are only after two things—bits and power—which they get by sticking their nose where it doesn't belong. She considers the Mardets, crew, and engineers of Groundbreaker to be family.
Background[edit | edit source]
Junlei Tennyson is the third generation of Tennyson leadership aboard Groundbreaker, recently promoted from chief engineer to captain after the death of her mother. She was close to her mother but frequently argued with her father over how Groundbreaker should be run.
Junlei was previously in a relationship with a woman named Isabelle who tried and failed to earn the approval of Junlei's father. They continued seeing each other anyway, but the relationship eventually ended poorly.
Interactions with the player character[edit | edit source]
Junlei can be found in her office in Groundbreaker Engineering. She introduces herself to the Stranger as captain of Groundbreaker, and notes that her friends call her Chief. The explanation she gives for the formal introduction is that Groundbreaker doesn't see many visitors. Junlei then goes on to make it clear that she has the final say on the ship, and welcomes the Stranger on board as they seem to be different to the usual outsiders who are mostly 'Board spies and corporate sprats'.
If the player asks Junlei about the heat problem on Groundbreaker, they can offer to help her obtain new radiator parts. After the radiator parts are installed, more dialogue options become available to ask her about herself and Groundbreaker. She will also direct the player to Edna Ingmire to help her with a comms issue, and inform the player that they are now authorized to trade with Doctor Mfuru.
Junlei will appear on the Unreliable if the player helps to set up a date between her and Parvati. When interacted with, she thanks them for welcoming her aboard the ship.
