Back when I first launched my Black Ocean: Mercy for Hire series, I posed this question to my email insiders. The main character, Esper, may be unconventional, but she still shares many of traits the great scifi bounty hunters possess.
A bounty hunter’s job is to collect a target. Maybe alive. Maybe dead. Maybe it doesn’t matter one way or the other. Point is, there’s a job to do and only half the payment up front.
If you were to build the galaxy’s perfect bounty hunter, what DNA would you use?
Which characteristics matter most?
- Nerves of Steel
- Cool gear
- A secret edge
- Utter lack of empathy
Tell me what ingredients you think are essential in the comments!
