Officer Aeryn Sun was a former Peacekeeper pilot, fugitive, the wife of John Crichton and later became one of the leaders of Task Force 141 following Shepherd's Betrayal. Aeryn starts out the series as a cold, calloused militant woman who has no qualms about showing her disdain for people whom she considers to be members of "lesser species". John is shocked to find out that she does not even know the meaning of the word "compassion" as there appears to be no Sebacean linguistic equivalent to it. Aeryn had believed in her life of rules and service, and continues following many of the codes she adhered to as a Peacekeeper for the early-mid part of the first war and the later as a TF141 Operative in the later parts of First War. For Aeryn, firing a weapon is nearly a therapeutic act, as it relates to the arena of experience where she is most comfortable.

Biography

Personality

Aeryn started out as a cold, calloused militant woman who had no qualms about showing her disdain for people whom she considers to be members of "lesser species". John is shocked to find out that she does not even know the meaning of the word "compassion" as there appears to be no Sebacean linguistic equivalent to it. Aeryn had believed in her life of rules and service, and continues following many of the codes she adhered to as a Peacekeeper for the first and second seasons of the show. For Aeryn, firing a weapon is nearly a therapeutic act, as it relates to the arena of experience where she is most comfortable.


Initially, Aeryn found John bizarre but intriguing, a feeling that gradually grows into an attraction. This causes turmoil for her, as her soldier training had always taught her that emotions were baggage and dangerous when in situations of peril. She spends a great deal of time trying to deny or get over her feelings for John, which becomes harder for her as he more openly starts reciprocating those feelings.


Aeryn ends up learning how to get on with nearly everyone on board Moya over time (though she expresses a near constant dislike for Rygel, mainly due to his cowardice). She had a close relationship with Pilot, in part because of the DNA she shared with him after NamTar's experiment. Though she had a consistently prickly nature, this does not mean that she does not care for her shipmates as time goes on. Her concern for their well-being puts her in danger countless times, and the compassion that she had never before heard of becomes an important value in her life. She continues to believe in new causes even after deciding that the Peacekeeper causes she had fought for her whole life were not, in fact, the right ones. This comes through in her work as an assassin, and in her decision to help John prevent anyone from getting wormhole technology.


Aeryn has great difficulty in dealing with loss, and often reverts to her emotionless soldier's nature when she is deeply hurt or grieving. This is how she deals with the death of Talyn's John, and it takes time before she can properly dismiss any distinction between the twinned Johns and allow herself to fall back in love again. Despite this, Aeryn is also unsure that her love for Crichton warrants their building a life and family together, and her decision to become a mother initially fills her with much trepidation and uncertainty. This fades once her son is born, and she proves to be a loving and attentive mother.

Aeryn Sun's story continues as a soldier, a true friend, a wife, a mother, and a legend.
