Deathwatch - The Jericho Crusade
Diaz Lan'z First Officer (Alive)
This withered old woman possesses a fierce determination and even fiercer tongue. She began as an auspex operator on the Horizon when it was still captained by Diaz’s great-uncle on the far side of the warp gate.
She has survived and served three generations of the Lan family, which she idolises.
Althea is thoroughly hardened by her long years in the void as well as the last four decades of the Crusade. She has little patience and no fear—of Space Marines or anyone else.
Virtually the only person she shows any respect to is the captain.
