Conversions:

Fantasy:

Hot pilots have their analogs here, too, though they don't get to underfly bridges at mach speeds anymore. Give her Animal Handling, Teamster, and Riding, and figure that she's a "Pony Express" style messenger. Drop the tech skills, and she probably also becomes Illiterate. (If you have unusual societies, she could do her job by sea, canal, or air (Hang-Gliding), too.)

Modern:

Alter the tech levels of skills, and probably add Piloting (Hang-Glider), Helicopter, and Airplane. Karyn could be found trucking, flying just about anything but a passenger plane, or maybe taxi-driving.

Near Future:

It'll be harder for her to keep those Honest and Pacifistic views, but she may try. She's probably a chauffeur for those times when evasive aerial maneuvers (Read: "Han Solo Memorial Astroid Belt Maneuver") become necessary.


If it moves, and isn't alive, Karyn can drive/fly it. Under any conditions. Sometimes far faster than her passengers would wish. She serves as relief pilot for the This Way Up, and primary driver/pilot for the ship's vehicles. She's also a passable trader - especially if the transaction involves anything that moves under power. Besides the fact that she never gets lost, the crew knows her best for her strong pacifistic views.
