Physical Description

Zanven stands at 5'7“ and weighs in at an impressive 175 pounds, looking more like an old school sports star than your average Minkan.

His broad shoulders and toned, muscled body show that he has been through some intense training through his life in order to be the best of the best. He takes training seriously, but still remembers the joy he has when showing up at the top of the class. His skin has an almost reddish hue, as if his blood were always near the surface of his tanned skin or perhaps a light sunburn, with freckles on his arms and legs. Zanven Sports a short stylized haircut similar to that of an old cyberpunk style of the generations past. The style of his cut combined with his darker hazelnut hair color makes his hair have an almost synthetic shine in the artificial light on any ship. His murky brown, muddy looking eyes that seem to pierce one's soul, yet let someone know that he is coming from the heart when he speaks. He sports no facial hair except for his thick eyebrows which seem to only bring out his facial structure, like that of a veteran boxer.

Personality

Zanven Brax the “demon of the ring”, the marksman, the soldier.

Always respectable to his superiors, and even to his peers, Zanven holds himself in high regard as a soldier of the greatest military power in the universe. Raised to follow orders without question and to think outside the box when needed, he will often find new solutions to problems that persist even through age old techniques. Calm and calculating every move as if it were combat, he will assess any room he walks into and the amount of people in case of an emergency situation. He is quiet and often called a ghost because of the way he can sneak and his uncanny ability to be in places where no one would expect, even for his size.

His goals are to become a better fighter than his father, and to see the Yamatai Star Empire raised to heights unimaginable.

History

Brax, Zanven was born in YE 18.

Zanven Brax, born on he Moon day of the fifth week of Kugatsu, YE 18 in the Malifar Region

His family were both military, his father a Shosa in the Ninth Fleet of the Yamatai Star Empire, and mother a medic on the ship his father served. After a brief courtship the two married early YE 18 and Zanven was born later that year, and even though the delivery was a rough one his mother pulled through, noticeably weaker after the ordeal. Together the family decided on settling down after their last tour so they could raise their boy. Together they raised their son to the best of their ability for ten years until a defect of Destini's family genetics coupled with a disease from the desert sands finally claimed her life. The death devastated the family enough to cause Miyamoto to go back on another tour with the ninth fleet in YE 29.

During the time in which Miyamoto was gone, Zanven was enrolled into a military school and was taught to fight and train his mind to make his whole body a weapon. He excelled at simulations involving the use of the Daisy power armor and ground based tactics. He was also fast to learn the maintenance and repair, as well as modifications that can be made to the Daisy M6 Infantry Power Armor. Finding that he often placed at the top of his class, he was selected to take advanced training courses to fast-track his journey to an officer position. Zanven found that he was better at following orders than giving them in most cases, he found himself a group that named themselves “The Omega Unit” and even though it seemed childish the group eventually climbed through the challenges ahead of them and together proved they were a formidable fighting unit.

Miyamoto, though broken hearted, knew that being away from his son…his only family left would cause him more strife. He returned in YE 34, after the The Battle of Yamatai, finding out his son took part in the battle defending the academy until its evacuation. He also found out the home they had in Malifar was destroyed along with most of the land out there. Finally resigning from his post Miyamoto took it upon himself to make sure Zanven was raised right, and as such he raised him in the old warrior ways…through continuing his training and study did Zanven thrive and show his colors as a fighter to his father.

Zanven officially joined the army at the age of eighteen YE 36. Once there he receiving more general training, finding the regiment to be more suitable for him than his academy days. His old unit was bequeathed to juniors as his friends moved on to jobs in the Star Army, and it was not long in his training that he was found to be trained better than most and as such he was taken during a days training being brought into the ranks of the Star Army infantrymen. He ran simulations and fought in a boxing ring set up to settle disputes and make a little cash on the side and to pass the time.

Eventually though he found that the call for pilots seemed to be in more demand, so in order to look more desirable Zanven began to cross train to become a pilot. He was able to develop the skills needed to become a fighter pilot as well as maintain his vehicle, and even though his skills were not of the highest marks he was always left with comments of how his piloting seemed to break tradition and be unpredictable at times, the mentality from his infantry training was to blame for this. He waits at Fort Ready for assignment whether it be as an infantryman or a pilot.

Zanven has now been assigned as a pilot on the YSS Imperator He spends most of his time studying tactics and ship designs when not on duty or training for combat.

His father now an employee of the Yamatai Star Army Academy often talking to Zanven through video communications, and Zanven visits his mothers grave each birthday.
