Sicaria Perihelion is a turian separatist from the planet of Solregit. Her clan is the Sundowner clan and other members of the clan on the boards included Martello Hasta (her nephew and hearth-son) and Vindetti Guerra (her cousin). She is currently in a relationship with Keros, a soldier from the Turian Hierarchy. Sicaria is extremely loyal to family members, a skilled fighter, and an ardent opponent of the Turian Hierarchy. However, her views do not prevent her from forming close relationships with loyal Hierarchy turians, as her boyfriend Keros and close friend Harrad Illum attest to.
All Sicaria wanted out of life, essentially, was a farm, a whole bunch of kids, and reasonable assurance that the government would leave her alone.
- Mother: Nadir Gladix, deceased (hastatim action)
- Father: Illix Perihelion, deceased (hastatim action)
- Aunt/Foster Mother: Khaira Gladix, Separatist general, deceased (executed for treason)
- Uncle/Foster Father: Sagi Hasta, deceased (respiratory disease)
A militant turian separatist, Sicaria became an active member of the separatist Sundowners on Solregit after the death of her parents and her subsequent fostering by her aunt, Khaira Gladix, separatist general. This aunt drilled her in military and wilderness survival techniques but hatred of Hierarchy spurred by the death of parents at the hands of hastatim teams gave her the will to use them. A blooded warrior by age ten, Sicaria had only three years of formal education but the influence of a college-professor uncle gave her the equivalent education of a typical turian college undergraduate.
She joined the Hierarchy military at age fifteen at the urging of her aunt, in order to learn advanced demolitions techniques and bring home skills to the rebels. She left the military at age twenty on agricultural exemption, honourably discharged. Official records stated that Sicaria was quiet, withdrawn, and not a team player (a damning accusation among turians). Long-term analysis shows a hardened separatist who maintained walls to keep distance between herself and the rest of the unit even under combat conditions; an utter refusal to empathize or bond with Hierarchy personnel.
She contributed to the resistance for ten years until the Sundowners were smashed and scattered by increasing Hierarchy response. Sicaria successfully fled Solregit; she later did one year in a salarian prison for auto theft, reckless driving and mischief. There is the strong suspicion that this crime was committed with the intent of being caught in order to escape Hierarchy trackers.
Sicaria then moved to Taetrus. Initially she had links with Facinus, but fell away from association with the group, arguing that their methods were too extreme. Some incident caused a lack of trust sufficient enough for Sicaria to withdraw into the swamps and use her survival skill to live alone in the wilderness for almost three years; this incident was later revealed to be the bombing of a train. Sicaria had intended to bomb a troop train and discovered that the military car was attached to a public passenger train. Despite misgivings she set the bomb anyway, killing 28 and wounding over a hundred and fifty more.
During the War, Adrianea Galaex arrived on Cerberus Daily News. Actually an agent for the Hierarchy's Internal Intelligence Bureau, she infiltrated the Sundowner Clan on the Citadel via a romantic liaison with Martello Hasta. She posed as a separatist-sympathizer and seduced the young separatist, first dating him and then marrying him while helping to take care of his daughter. Adrianea used her infiltration of the Sundowners to gather information that led to Sicaria's arrest and sentencing.
She was released from prison on the understanding that she would serve as a suicide bomber against the Reapers on behalf of the Hierarchy. Contact was lost with her transport ship, though, and one year later it was discovered she was in fact still alive...
