Typhuss James Halliwell[]

Cheryl Anderson in 2354

In 2354, Cheryl first met Typhuss James Halliwell at a bar. Cheryl and Typhuss fell in love. Cheryl took Typhuss back to her house and had sex with him. They started dating that night. Six months later they got married and seven months later their relationship was not working and they got a divorce.


She will use her resources to get what she wants. Be it teases with her body or a threat to their live with her phaser to their face. During the throngs of combat she is able to stay focused and not lose control of herself or her emotions. As a defense mechanism she controls her emotions by placing a mental mask over all her expressions creating an image she is rather cold.

When someone is in danger she feels compelled to help them. A person in danger brings back memories of Charlie, and how she failed to save him. She is no more resilient to pain than any other human, or struck down by life’s troubles. But she is able to push the extra mile if her or someone else’s life depended on it.

She is very tuned into her surroundings allowing her to use her environment in combat or quickly make escape plans. She will never back down, nor does she have any insecurity about her body or who she is. But she does carry the fear of letting someone else die under her care.

Don’t call her “Babe”, it will trigger an aggressive response. She finds it completely demeaning and an assault of strength as a woman.
