Completely Desensitized to Violence:
Massari comes from a culture where violence has no real consequences, and as a result she often forgets that people die for real on Earth. The one advantage of her old life is that her brain has been conditioned to associate fun and excitement with her own pain.
Criminal (Crime Spree):
Shortly after she landed, Massari psionically enthralled almost a hundred people, engaged in theft, distributed (stolen) narcotics, vandalized or destroyed multiple properties, murdered and maimed several people. She had also set her starship to self-destruct in the event that someone broke in, and when the heroes who had apprehended her did so, it destroyed everything within a 600 feet radius.
Massari's species, the Va'kar, were originally bred to serve as companions. One major aspect of their genetic design is a strong inclination for socializing, which also manifests itself as a kind of autophobia; they are terrified of being alone. If Massari is alone, she suffers a -5 penalty to all mental skill checks.
Motivation - Hedonism:
All Massari wants to do is try new things and have fun. Unfortunately, she also view most natives as her personal playthings.
Massari spent most of her life in the Qaval Empire, an AI-controlled totalitarian hedonistic society. Her species, the Va'kar, were originally created in the Empire's pre-AI era to serve as pleasure slaves. By Massari's time, however, her kind were full citizens and free to pursue their own drives. Everything she wanted was provided for her by the nigh-omniscient AI ruling the Empire, but after 40 years Massari eventually tired of that existence and joined the underground fighting ring in the hopes of getting some more excitement. The ruling AI was well aware of this subculture, but tolerated its existence for serving as a necessary outlet for some of its subjects, and no matter how violent the fights got, it could easily mend any injuries and even resurrect those who got killed. 56 years later, Massari became the top fighter in the Qaval Empire, and she went undefeated for so long that she eventually tired of the whole thing. She devoted the next couple of decades trying to escape the ruling AI's reach. Eventually, she succeeded by acquiring a starship that had been reprogrammed to take her wherever she wanted to go, and she used it to flee into uncharted space.
By chance, the self-exiled Va'kar happened to intercept a stream of broadcasts originating from a primitive, planetbound civilization. They left such a big impression on Massari that she decided to pay a visit to the planet known locally as "Earth." Of course, she first took some time to study this world before making planetfall, and learned that its civilization was in fact a highly fragmented one. As such, she thought it best to focus on the dominant culture. After learning its language, she set down her ship in the outskirts of a city in the United States.
It didn't take long before Massari had made quite a few friends thanks to her psionic allure, and from there she began to partake in this world's many pleasures. It turned ugly soon enough, as she considered violence and mayhem to be par for the course, and treated everyone as her personal plaything. Eventually, Massari was caught and beaten by some high-powered natives who thought little of her party. She got the last laugh, however, when those "heroes" broke into her starship, as its AI had been commanded to triggered the self-destruct system in such an eventuality. Everything within a 600 feet radius was completely vaporized, leaving only a glass crater in their place.
