Canada’s contribution to the Mars project is primarily the supply ship Calgary. Only carrying two colonists, the Calgary is for freight and little else. As a result, the crew of the Calgary are exactly that. The Jamaican Supply Sergeant, Darice Koffee and RCMP Staff Sergeant Jasper Freedman are those two special passengers actually going to Mars.
These are the brave men and women assigned to man stations on the ships, ferrying the… Wait. Not so brave supplies that have no clue where they’re headed… Oh. And two brave men, to Mars.
These are the lonely two passengers with a lot of time on their hands to help the crew – and fleet – out on the way to Mars.
Sergeant Darice Koffee
Darice Koffee is the Jamaican supply sergeant and General Doug’s mole. He’s the genius who’s very good at playing the fool, because, after all, no one gives a fool another thought. He helped hunt down the candidates who ordinarily wouldn’t have applied, but that the community of Mars colony desperately needed. A man who can juggle and keep straight everyone’s supply needs, he’s the perfect supply sergeant for Mars.
Staff Sergeant Jasper Freedman
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police is the branch of Canadian law enforcement that Jasper Freedman serves. He’s sharp, quick-witted and takes himself seriously. He’s the one who always know exactly what to do, no matter how high the stakes. Ethical and the kind of man who keeps hunting for justice until it is reached, Jasper Freedman embodies the Mountie slogan, Uphold the Right.
