Arcturus is a typical, if slightly shorter than normal, Caelisolan young man with a messy shock of sandy blonde hair. Their slightly pale skin tone draws attention to their borderline iridescent eyes, which always seem to be more vivid than normal when he smiles. His sparrow-shaped wings, much like his twin brother, are cream-colored and allow him to fly under his own power, given the right amount of space.

Personality

In a word, Arcturus is energetic. When with his brother, Arc often finds himself incapable of sitting still, always looking ahead to see what's next. Essentially inseparable, he and his twin are incredibly easy to become friendly with while not on duty, if slightly overwhelming in the overall excitability department. The young man often loves to tease his brother about their ages, but rarely means anything serious by his actions and words.

Despite giving the vibe of being “prankster twins” to those around them, both Armin and Arcturus are rare to actually embarrass or in some way humiliate or pull jokes on other people; it is actually more likely Arcturus will crack jokes at Armin making a fool of himself than poke fun at other people. When off-duty he's often found fooling around with Armin, or noting down an insignificant idea.

On duty, Arcturus often takes direct solutions to a problem after moments of decision-making. However, he sometimes has a “hot-headedness” which often results in him making a decision almost immediately, even if important information may be arriving shortly.

History

Arcturus Sargas was born in YE 19 on New Elysia, only a couple minutes after Armin Sargas.

Having grown up on the essentially freshly-claimed world of New Elysia, Arc and his older brother grew together incredibly quickly. The children often stayed out of trouble as they grew up, typically learning quickly from any of their mistakes. When the Fourth War happened, the young boys-only about the age of five years-were kept at home for their own safety; being as young as they were neither of the twins knew what was going on at the time.

As the war finally faded into history, though, the household began to relax again; the Sargas brothers would start going back to school, and generally life seemed to become overall uneventful for the two boys. The two or so years of isolation didn't seem to have many effects on them negatively-in fact, they seemed to return to society with increased vigor. Aside from the somewhat unsteady peace between the factions after their fourth major conflict, society managed to progress for a few more years without issue.

As the Second Mishhuvurthyar War continued to draw in close to home, tensions on the planet began to rise, and many families around the brothers, including their own, prepared for the worst-be it annihilation, forced evacuation, or otherwise. Terrified, the family had hunkered down in their small home, scouring the news for anything hopeful.

With the arrival of the YSS Eucharis, the family seemed to breathe a large sigh of relief-though much of the city was in disarray, they still would have survived the war. And with such an impressive display of power, Yamatai's army of stars earned the favor of the Sargas family, however insignificant it was at the time.

Some time after the war had ended, the twins, with their parent's blessings and their newly-made Caelisolan bodies, volunteered to join the Army, deciding that piloting small craft would be the best option for them. Although the brothers had progressed through training normally, they had been stationed at Fort Victory for some time.

Skills Learned

Arcturus Sargas has the following notable skills:

Common Star Army Skills

Starship Operations

Arcturus and his brother specialize in the piloting of fightercraft of varying designs, and have often sparred against each other in simulators to test each other's skills. They have simulated the control of larger vessels, but only have a very basic knowledge of the systems.

Vehicles

In his brother's words: “Driving a tank is like flying a starfighter when it comes down to it. Pay attention and don't be stupid, and unless the odds were actually against you you'll get to where you need to be.” He and his brother have trained specially in the use of tankettes and similar ground-based vehicles, though they have some experience with standard mecha as well.

Entertainment

Combined with his brother, Arc is a somewhat friendly person who likes to interact with small groups of people, enjoying pleasant talks with others. On occasion he is sometimes considered for counseling.
