As you can see, I rolled another female character, and she ended up with barbarian costume pieces. I like the look, and how the lacy neck wrap updates her to a "modern" 19th century woman.
A few days after creating her, a non-VIP friend needed help paying the rent on his base, so she joined his group. I didn't play her that much, but I played on Triumph more than he. (Note she only reached level 16.) It is the only time I have had a character have to play in order to pay the rent. The SG had no prestige in reserve.
