|Gonna Catcha: Character Bios|
A high-ranking officer in the Psychopomp Police Force (PsyPomPo). She specializes in escorting evil spirits into the afterlife, whether they like it or not, and resolving spirit hostage crises, particularly the part involving butt-kicking of the enemy.
Psychopomps who are part of the "evil spirit" division such as herself receive elite combat and weapons training in order to deal with the all dangerous, mischevious and obnoxious spectres out in the field. Her spirit-hunting equipment of choice include a spirit-tranquilizer gun, with ammunition specially-designed to weaken dangerous or otherwise unruly spirits1, and the "Psychopump"2, a pooter- or aspirator-like device used to capture the weakened spirits.
A lover of giving people their comeuppance, she quickly climbed up the ranks with her ruthless and efficient methods, too ruthless in fact. Even though she doesn't mean to, she has trouble adjsuting her attitude between dealing with evil spirits and the odd job of dealing with good spirits. She would be unnecessarily rough and "scary" towards them3, resulting in crying and screaming runaways and complaints raised against her. In order to keep her job, she was forced by her superior to be paired with Donum, a good spirit specialist.
1 The spirit-tranquilizer is extremely dangerous when used in inexperienced hands. If one accidentally shoots a mortal with it, it will put them in a catatonic state. In more severe cases, they could end up in a long coma.
2 One of the proposed names for the device was the "Psychopooter". After a 3-hour laughing fit by both the testers and development team, the name was quietly scrapped.
3 Parents often tell their misbehaving children that Pohena Das will get them to scare them straight.
A high-ranking specialist in the "good spirit" division of the Psychopomp Police Force (PsyPomPo). His job mainly involves meeting up with the good spirits of the recently deceased and help guide them to the afterlife, assuring that it's not as frightening or bureaucratic as mortals make it out to be1.
Psychopomps in the "good spirit" division only receive basic combat and weapons training, mainly for self-defense against evil spirit that may try to impede their efforts. His field equipment include a spirit-stun gun, which is designed to only temporarily incapacitate aggressive spirits, and a newer model of the Psychopump, which resembles a digital camera. When a spirit's picture ia taken, they are transported into the device's roomy memory space. If they so choose, they can choose to get the actual souvenir photo2.
Cordial and gentle in nature, he rose up the ranks from the 5-star feedback left by those whom he guided. During the early days of his career, many amongst the PsyPomPo believe that he was only recruited because of his pretty face. He is also popular amongst mortals, particularly children, who believe that he will give them gifts if they have been good. He was eventually partnered with Pohena as a counterbalance to her ruthless ways. She wasn't very warm to the idea at first, but eventually they became the best of friends, always watching each other's back.
1 Well, mostly the former.
2 Though if the spirit's death was too tragic, grizzly or depressing, a souvenir photo may not be offered. Too soon.
