Bishop is a household name on Solaris VII, although she is more famous for her magazine pin-ups than her fighting skill. Discovered by an advertising agency while a young pilot, she became a model for various brands on Solaris VII, promoting the gladiatorial lifestyle and looking good doing it in a rather skimpy jumpsuit. She quickly became known to her admirers as the "Steiner Babe" in reference to her origin on Arc-Royal (although she bears no relation to the royal family). Her modeling career left little time for actual fighting, however, and despite some potential talent, her skills never fully blossomed.
Her modeling career has been heading downhill recently, both due to age (she is now all of thirty years of age) and by her decision to publicly support Katherine Steiner-Davion in the recent FedCom civil war. As a result, she was acquired by the Flaming Devil Monkeys relatively cheaply, and to mutual benefit. The Monkeys benefited from the press they received for reviving the career of this "aging" star and her mech skills have benefited from the tutelage of Bane and other more experienced stable hands.
Like many of the Monkeys, Bishop has something of a chip on her shoulder and feels she doesn't get enough respect on the battlefield. She would like nothing better to prove that she is not just another pretty face.
With the expansion of the Monkeys to four mech lances, they were in need of more officers, and Bishop had the experience and seniority to earn a promotion to Lieutenant. She moved into Major Mbeki's Gorilla lance as second in command, freeing Mbeki to fulfill his role as XO and second in command of overall forces.
Bishop's Vindicator was destroyed during the debacle on Dieron. Like Mbeki, she was gifted a new mech by the DCMS for her actions. She proved very effective with the laser weaponry of the new Black Hawk KU. However, when she moved into the Gorilla lance she needed a mech with a similar movement profile and so she took over the controls of the Penetrator PTR-6S previously piloted by Cal Young. With its entirely laser-based weapons loadout, the new mech should also take advantage of Bishop's natural talents.
