|“||No shame in losing to the best...Just kidding! You should totally be ashamed of yourself.||”|
Tosca is an agent of chaos—so the winner-take-all battles on Crucible suit her just fine. With a high-tech shotgun and a short-range teleport, she can blast her enemies, then escape untouched. If you’re planning a fair fight against Tosca, you’ve already lost.
Among the warrens of Chirta, Tosca was one of her species’ brightest minds, renowned for her groundbreaking work in artificial intelligence, biochemistry, and quantum physics. She had it all: personal wealth, celebrity status, and an unfettered research budget. It wasn’t enough. Ever ambitious, Tosca plotted against Chirta’s ruling matriarchs — and found herself on the run after someone sold her out. Assassins chased her halfway across the Orion Arm, and the matriarchs convicted Tosca in absentia of treason. They’ll execute Tosca if she comes back to Chirta. Unless... she comes back with something of galaxy-shattering importance — something like the Essence found on Crucible. If Tosca can gather enough essence and unlock its secrets, the High Matriarchs will have to welcome her back with open arms. And then Tosca’s revenge will truly begin.
"Tosca has a long list of grievances, and an even longer list of enemies. She’s perpetually aggravated at having to deal with “the mentally minuscule” and “galactic refuse”—two groups she finds abundant in Unity space.
I’ve never seen Tosca actually happy, but she does get some satisfaction with each victory, especially if she can humiliate her rivals or make others suffer.
One other thing: don’t ever call her “cute.” Learned that the hard way."
- Lawrence Tibolt, Commander, Crucible Orbital Station
