Personality: Held to the highest standards his whole life, he is a man that has seen much and expected more. A true believer in the Empire, as well as the structure and security it afforded. However, his time as a grunt, as well as commando, lead him to realize that the Empire he grew up hearing about, was NOT the empire that he saw. Corruption, Disloyalty, Crime rampent. Petty disputes for power. It was not the Empire he heard about. Now a Jaded man, he is considered Ruthless by his enemies, hunting them down and destroying them. Once he gets to know someone however, he is very loyal and dependable. Is know to get the mission done, regardless of cost, though he is also one that respects the lives of his soldiers. Has even been known to invite whole platoons to his home for dinner. This has lead him to have very loyal troops, and there were times he risked his own life to save the lives of those under his command.
Bio: A man born to a low ranks Imperial Officer, he was not granted many privileges, however was told to love the Empire. As he grew older, he saw his father get promoted to Colonel, and then to General, due to his knowledge and resourcefulness. This lead him to believe that knowledge and ingenuity was the way to excel.
Sent off to the Imperial Academy at Raithal, he spent four years there learning all he could about ground combat and Military weaponry. He also, signed himself up for the Stormtrooper academy and Commando classes at Carida. During that time, however, his father was slain at the Battle of Hoth. Once his classes were done, he went into active service, and fought against the Rebels.
He spent most of his early carrir as a commando conducting missions against Rebel targets. However, one thing still bothered him throughout it all. The Empire he saw, the one he loved, was not the empire he was working for. Studying History during his spare time, he learned what was the problem. The Jedi and sith were controling everything! The old republic was taken over, due to the Jedi controling all military action, and attempting to take over. Now, a Sith Lord runs the Military, as well as the Empire, and there was corruption and crime everywhere he looked.
It was at this time, during his life, that the Civil War Ended. The Rebels managed to destroy yet another super weapon, and both Lord Vader AND the Emperor in one blow. He was a Moff of the outer planets now, keeping to himself in contemplation. His area was considered undesired by most of the Empire, and his fleet was small, but loyal, as were his troops. When the civil wars broke out between the Imperial Fleets, he instead resorted to Diplomacy and good will to get his power. He also broke from most, as he did not fight over a thrown that no longer had meaning. He created his own, and with it, a New Empire was born. One that took from the Rebels as well as the Imperials. Trying to combine both groups strengths.
Three years, and he had managed to make his a powerful force and had united allot of the Imperial Fleets and troops and worlds from the old Empire. Some were being resistant, and refused to join him, claiming that they were the Emperor of the Empire, and he was an imposter. It was somewhat true from their point of view. But he was not going to declare war unless he had to. Not yet. Not till all his plans were made.
