Life at Outpost 4972
Jania was a colleague of Szekel, a fellow researcher. When an asteroid landed on the planet and was found to contain archaea that interacted with the metal in the asteroid, she and Szekel began researching it heavily. Rakan Dep believed the two began an affair during their time in the labs. When Szekel absconded with the data, Jania came under investigation by corporate police. Though she denied involvement, she was ruthlessly interrogated. The police eventually turned to torture and Jania expressed extreme distress. She admitted to nothing, but eventually agreed to call her husband to the planet, while begging for her daughter to be left out of the entire event.
