Samus Aran is an intergalactic bounty hunter. She was an ex-Galactic Federation soldier but turned into a bounty hunter and has since been executing the missions given to her by the Galactic Federation. She primarily hunts for Ridley, the antagonist who is the head of the Space Pirates. Another of her adversaries is the parasitic energy-draining organisms called the Metroids. She has fought on a number of planets across the galaxy. She generally wears a powered armour suit that has in-built direct energy weapons and missiles. Her arm canon is a unique feature of the suit which was designed by the Chozo race. This was the alien race that adopted her when Samus Aran was orphaned at a very young age. She is a strong and muscular woman who weighs about 198 pounds without her armour.
