Mynova was a tech in the engineering crew of the fast cruiser Ariel during the Tau Verde Ring war. Employed by the Oseran Mercenaries, she defected to the then-fictional Dendarii Mercenaries after the Ariel was captured by Miles Naismith, and was the first to bring up the topic of the Dendarii pay schedule. Given the rank of trainee, she took part with the rest of the Dendarii engineering techs in a boarding operation that captured a Pelian warship rigged to self-destruct.
