Rebecca "Beka" Valentine is the owner of the Eureka Maru and the daughter of Ignatius Valentine, Jill Valentine and Senator Talia Waterkurk. Beka has inherited altered genes from her father - as a result, she has superior reactions and is stronger than the average human. She also has nanobots in her hair which allows her to change its color at will. These were implanted by her father when she was a child which, as Beka explains to Trance Gemini, he designed because "having one hair color was boring." Beka's hair nanobots also store data on a molecular level, something Beka only realizes after she is interrogated by her father's old business partner and Beka's 'uncle', Sid Barry.
