Cadet Lieutenant Vanessa "Killer" Killian
At six feet and blond, Vanessa Killian is just about the opposite in appearance to her rival, Alana Gorgo. She is slim and has a toned physique that seems to be effortless to maintain. She often wears a sultry look, but it slips away in an instant whenever necessary.

Vanessa Killian was born on Tauron to parents deeply involved in the field of spaceship design, where her penchant for athletics was viewed at first as a charming diversion. Later, as she grew older and insisted that her happiness would be found on the track and field rather than in the laboratory, her parents finally gave in.
Vanessa gained a scholarship to the Caprican University through her gymnastic ability, but the trip from Tauron the Caprica changed the direction of her life. With her eyes glued to the porthole for the entire trip, Vanessa found that she was in love with space travel. When she arrived on Caprica, she headed for the closest Fleet Recruiter instead of her paid-for college.
Testing revealed that Vanessa had a talent for spatial awareness and fine motor control. She was immediately recommended for Flight School, and hasn't looked back since. In Basic Flight, she clashed with the other top student, an Alana Gorgo, and the two, alike in many ways, have been fierce rivals ever since. Vanessa has been forced to admit that Gorgo has some small edge in the cockpit, but "Killer" Killian consistently outshoots the shorter woman.
