Kaya Stoat was a Gethsemanian female, a member of the Technical Core of the Pathfinder Ship Pegasus.
Following her rescue from the planet Gethsemane, Kaya was adopted by the Stoat family; her parental units were both Level I Technicians in the ship's Technical Core, as were her three older brothers. Her high aptitude for low-technology repairs led her to be selected as part of Keeler's naval expedition on the planet Eventide.[Worlds Apart Book 10: Eventide]
Subsequently, she returned to Pegasus. While Pegasus underwent repairs at the Charlemagne Starlock, she met and eventually married a member of the Medical Core of the Ambassadorial Ship Nova. She was wounded in the Battle of Terrastar while evacuating Kalahari Base, but eventually recovered from her wounds.
