Verika Abebi was an Ultranaut crew member of the lighthugger Poseidon. Aboard the Poseidon, she held the title of triumvir, indicating the ship has a small internal council consisting of three crew members (similarly to the Nostalgia for Infinity under Volyova's, Sajaki's and Hegazi's tenure).
She met with Richard Swift on the lower streets of post-Plague Chasm City, as Swift had contacted the crew of the Poseidon to arrange a deal. Swift, having returned to Yellowstone from the expedition to Golgotha, was intent on securing passage back to the latter planet aboard the Poseidon. Though Abebi had various bodily modifications and wore an exoskeleton while on her brief visit to Chasm City, the then-current physical appearance of Swift startled even her.
