Biographical Info



Jupiter Aphrodite Black was born on Picon to Dalen and Veronica Black, on a hot August night, twenty six years ago. Just shy of three years later, Martin was born. Jupiter's reign as only child was brief, and she never really got to enjoy it.

Mother: Veronica (Ronnie).
Ronnie is a substitute teacher with an eye for community service. She's big on the giving back, loving each other, and the whole village to raise a child thing. She's a substitute teacher, and she's about as adorable as you imagine. Sometimes, I think I'm adopted.

Father: Dalen (Dale).
Dalen works in a manufacturing plant. I'm not… really sure what it is they manufacture. I never paid that much attention. I'm Dad's little girl, no matter what I do. He refuses to see anything other than the angel I'm not. It works for me. And it paid for my first car. My little bro, Marty, almost swallowed his tongue when he saw it. Aw, kid brothers are life's payback for adolescence.

The transition into big sister held more amusement than necessary. There were many stealing of a and smacking with toys in those early years. A sibling rivalry blossomed early between the Black children, who quickly displayed a penchant for escapism and destruction, with the occasional petty larceny. (Their cousins never forgave them for the birthday heist, age 12 and 10 respectively).

Though both children were known to step outside the bounds of polite behavior, Martin often caught the blame. Jupiter's sweet face and her ready explanations shifted the blame more than her share of times. Though her academic pursuits were average, she was a pretty fast learner in other spheres of life, including, but not limited to, conning people out of things, stealing things, and building an impressive alcohol tolerance at a young age. She also rarely, if ever, got lost. Useful when running from cops. A top notch reaction time, and a few well placed tears, kept her from ever seeing a record. She also dated a cop for a while, as a senior in high school. That worked wonders for the reckless driving incidents.


Brother: Martin (Marty).
I haven't seen that little shit for months. We both pulled leave that overlapped by a couple days for Ronnie's last birthday. I dinged the family car with the mayor's … aide, Marty tripped over Ronnie's birthday cake and landed face first in our family doctor's wife's low cut dress, and I'm pretty sure we set the neighbor's dog on fire. There was practically a parade when we boarded the transport out of town.


When she graduated high school, Jupiter did the only thing she knew to immediately get herself off of Picon. She applied to the Colonial MIlitary. It had an added bonus of pissing off her parents, which only sweetened the pot. Early aptitude tests pointed toward a sharper mind than her academic test scores showed (who goes to class in high school, honestly?). Her reaction time and hand eye coordination got her through to other testing. Eventually it landed her in pilot training, much to the horror of her parents. They were hoping for a nice, safe desk clerk position. Perhaps supply. With pencils and things. Though it was first just an excuse to mock Marty, who was stuck back home on Picon for another year), Jupiter quickly became pretty engrossed in her training.

Reputation (or Mil. Service)

I was pretty shitty at driving a car, so it came as a surprise when I was able to handle a viper. I think it has something to do with not having to parallel park.

The progression to Lieutenant LG was right on course, and Martin Black was right behind his big sister. He signed up a year after her, just as soon as he could. No one back home on Picon could decide if it was a good thing both kids were off world, or it it was a bad thing that they had been handed so much firepower. Time progressed, nothing much exploded, and both Black's earned their callsigns and their pins.

About six months before the planned end of her cruise rotation on the Battlestar Orion, Jupiter received inked papers for a transfer to the Escort Carrier Kharon, on special assignment.


I'm not sure who I pissed off, but it must have been someone sleeping with my CAG…

On the Grid

Known Associates

Mugshot The Skinny
Lieutenant JG Martin "Dash" Black. Boner is what you'd call all bark and no bite, at least when it comes to me. I wouldn't poke him with a stick unless you got fast reflexes. He's still sore Daddy prefers me to him, and that I got the better car growing up. He's kind of a pain in my ass, but at least he's easy to blame for stuff. Oh, don't frak with him unless you're prepared to frak with me. I mean it. Rabid bitch behavior. No lie.

I'll never get arrested for domestic abuse, you'll never marry a blonde school teacher from Caprica, and our kids will never shove each other off the highest platform of the playground because yours talk funny and mine are cranky little pricks. I guess we have to settle for quick fraks in uncomfortable places, killing our enemies with brutal efficiency, and co-ed showers. … So, not all bad." (to Hale re: the future.)
