Context

These old notes are based on a particularly long-running online erotic fan-fiction, wot has been releasing episodes since 1990, by Elf Sternberg .


Background

  • Marital Status: Polygamist.
  • Known Relatives: Kennet and Aaden (Companions).
  • Group Affiliation: None.
  • Base Of Operations: Pendor.
  • Height: 5’6”
  • Eyes: Yellow Hair: Blue-Black


Powers and Abilities

Like all of her species, P’Nyssa is a moderately powerful natural telepath. She has an especially strong empathic ability that comes in handy in her line of work.

She is a highly accomplished and regarded physician, with specialized knowledge of obstetrics and biochemistry.


History

The man who would become Kennet Shardik was a highly imaginative and slightly alienated college student in modern-day New Hampshire. Through a series of events to complicated to go into here, came into possession of an extremely powerful technological artifact, possibly from another universe.

Offered a chance to do literally *anything* by Fawn Eldar, the AI who made up the central component of the artifact, Ken decided to create his own personal world.

Using Fawn’s incredible powers (Continuum Control among them, certainly…) Ken sought out the aid of a reclusive Greek goddess (another long story…). Then he traveled back in time to construct the massive, Larry Nivenesque ringworld of Pendor around a nearby star. Fawn then transported the whole thing to a ’pocket dimension’, for further work.

Megascale structure

Using Fawn’s technological resources, coupled with his own genius for genetics, Ken gave Pendor a working biosphere, teeming with life and diversity. He then set about creating a sentient population, genegineering several species up from Terran animal stock. He used advanced nanotech to make each Pendorian native functionally immortal.

Deciding to bypass the messy business of evolution and social development Ken helped his ’children’ build a near-utopian society based on mutual respect, personal responsibility, and just plain common sense.

When all this was finished, Fawn returned Pendor to the normal universe in the Terran year 1990. Then Ken made his presence and accomplishments known to the world of his birth. And that’s when things start to get interesting.

The Journal Entries chronicle bits and pieces of the next 1200 years of Pendorian history, focusing on Ken’s unique position as a sort of laid-back, user-friendly demigod to his people. They tell of his home life, his friends and family, his adventures on Pendor and out into the galaxy.

They also detail the odd love-hate relationship between Pendor and Terra, as Terran society moves out into the stars.


Description

P’Nyssa is a Pendorian Tindal. This is a species created by Ken out of thin air, without a base in Terran animal stock like most of his races.

She is a 5’6” humanoid, a lushly-figured 115 lbs or so, with short indigo-blue fur and supple tentacles in place of standard jointed arms. These tentacles end in fingerless mitten-like pads with opposable thumbs.

She has a lovely rounded face framed by a massive mane of thickly-curled blue-black hair. With bright yellow featureless eyes surrounded by gold mask-like markings, and large pointed ears.

She generally favors loose clothing ; robes, kimonos, and overlarge blouses and tops with jeans.


Personality

P’Nyssa is a quiet, sensible, gentle woman possessed of great compassion and empathy. Though less flamboyant than her two mates, she is nonetheless as kind, good-humored and passionate about her work as either of them.

She also has more plain common sense than Ken or Aaden, and often has to gently hold them back from rash and impulsive actions.


DC Universe History

In the DC Universe, Ken might have kept Pendor in its little pocket. Perhaps the same little sub-universe that New Genesis and Apokolips exist in? This would keep it a safe step back from a much more active and turbulent interstellar society.

It’s possible that he revealed his presence by sending Pendorian troops to aid his birthworld during the Invasion .
