The character of Cricket was created by Macattack .
When not in her battle armor she looks almost human except for her dragonfly wings (which she can pull into a beetle shell on her back with some effort) her skin has a slight greenish tint, her eyes are yellow and green, she has antennae, and her legs appear to be almost twice as long as she should be.
Cricket was a captain of Sectoid 9, a war planet of insectoids. When their planet was invaded she failed in a duty which she does not like to talk about and was thereby banished from the planet to wander the universe with nothing but a run down freighter and an old obsolete set of Sectoid 9 armor.
Though she has wandered many galaxies, Cricket has found a home on earth finding it both naive and fascinating. She's an honorable girl who always loves a good fight but believes in watching out for those who she's in charge of.
Cricket wears an old obsolete set of Sectoid 9 armor, has extensive battle knowledge, can jump small buildings, can lift 10 times her own weight, can fly, has excelent senses, and is armed with an electrically charged axe with a handle that can extend into a two handed battle axe.
