Build and Skin Color: Firuz has a slender, almost lithe, muscle-packed body, which is most certainly built more for speed and dexterity than strength per-se (akin to an professional acrobat's body). His skin is chalk white.
Eyes and Facial Features: Blue colored eyes framed by sharp facial features. His nose and chin are sharp. His horns are often polished rather well, but not to the shiny finish some others might go out of their way to achieve.
Hair Color and Style: While his natural hair color is black, he often dyes it or at least colors the tips. As a bio-punk himself, Firuz usually has an extravagant hairstyle, ionizing his hair whenever he has free time to keep it up and spiky.
Distinguishing Features: On his right shoulder blade Firuz has a tattoo of a raven clawing at a minaret which reads in Saalsari “Raving Ravens”. When off-duty, he usually puts the piercing on his lower right lip on, as well as the one on his right eyebrow.
Personality: Firuz is very cheerful and confident. He can't say no to a dare (well, unless he knows he's gonna lose it or it would otherwise humiliate him), though that doesn't mean he'll go out of his way to show off. Firuz is an explorer at heart, as he loves to delve into the unknown and the new and adapts as quickly as he can to it.
While Firuz doesn't like the overly religious, he can understand the reason why people are devout to the Dreamer Veil, and usually has no qualms against it unless the religious doctrine gets in the way of being oneself or saving and helping others feel better. Patient, Firuz does still have a short temper when he is rubbed the wrong way by someone and won't be afraid to speak his mind about other people's misbehavior or abuse.
In the end, you can trust Firuz to cheer you up if you're down, or at the very least try to keep your spirits in check so that you can live, if not happy, then at least in good taste.
Likes: His father, spaceships, Tower Diving, sports, dancing, bio-punk, bounty hunters and stellar cartography.
Dislikes: Space pirates, thugs, his step father, monopoly, overly religious people, the isolationist party, inactivity and his uncle.
Goals: Make his father proud, to provide security to his homeland, and to become a great spaceship operator.

Alsalom met Tarima when he had just opened his own business in the Outer Colony Cluster. With her help, Alsalom's business bloomed. Tarima was in love with her man's passion to become a striving man of wealth. They married and soon thereafter had a son… but just as their business was blooming, a competitor's business had been expanding into their sector. They took all Alsalom's customers and Alsalom's business fell into decay. Little by little Alsalom had to cut his losses, and over the span of 2 years his business went bankrupt. Tarima and Alsalom had to look for new jobs now, to provide for the baby. Alsalom found a job as a commercial spaceship operator and Tarima found a job as a pharmacy employee. As can be expected, their jobs forced them away from each other, and little by little, their love for each other died. Alsalom was no longer the passionate man he was once, having his dreams crushed, and Tarima ever saw him because he was always on his space ship delivering cargo to remote locations.
Tarima proposed divorce from Alsalom. Saddened, he agreed to it, but only as long as the child would be under his stay. Tarima would have normally objected, but considering her job didn't have that high of a salary and that Alsalom was so grieved by the turn of events that transpired to the decline of his life's dreams, she left their son under his care so that perhaps he would have something to live for.
Firuz grew up under his father's tender care. Since his father was always on duty, and would sometimes be in space for weeks, he took his son to work with him. During most of his early childhood, he was home-schooled by his father at the ship, learning basic math, history, astrology, motor and language skills. Once he became too old to keep in the ship, however, it was time for him to move on to a better education and live amongst other children his age, and he would have to be cared for by someone in the colony. Alsalom reluctantly left Firuz with his brother Fassad, who was mostly a gambler, freeloader and scammer, who likewise reluctantly took in his brother's son.
Throughout his grade school and into high school, Firuz grew to be a bit of a popular kid for his age. He was a bit of a rebel, and would commonly get in trouble for pulling off pranks and other kinds of things at school. Since early into his grade school he had enjoyed watching Tower Diving competitions, so he eventually became part of the local high school team. This eventually got him into the minor league competitions, and lead him to becoming leader of the Raving Ravens into his late years in high school.
During summer or school recess, and sometimes even during school semesters, Firuz would leave on trips with his father for weeks on end. Firuz loved his father, so he always made sure to make him proud with his grades, with his accomplishments in Tower Diving or Madua Noa and with helping him out around in the spaceship to the best of his abilities. Often, his father had to go take inventory while they were in space outside of FTL. Since the crew members were so familiar with Firuz and Alsalom had taught him how to be a good navigator, at these times Firuz would take up the role of spaceship operator in his stead while he took inventory.
In one such trip, however, they were forced out of FTL travel and were raided by pirates. Most of the crew was injured before, much to their luck, a bounty hunter spaceship that had been looking for the pirates managed to pick up the signal and came to their rescue. Alsalom had been badly injured to near death, but was treated and healed to normal after a short ride to their destination and bringing him to a hospital. The experience left Firuz with an ingrained hatred towards space pirates and a sudden realization of his father's mortality, as well as all the honest, hard-working crew members that his father was a member of.
Once he arrived back at his home colony, Firuz became a much more dedicated Madua Noa practitioner and slowly began to leave behind the Raving Ravens team. Eventually a new leader was assigned to the Raving Ravens and Firuz graduated high school. When he graduated, Firuz did not look for further education or just a job. He sought to become something that could ultimately ensure the safety of his father and those he loved.
He joined the Astral Vanguard and was shortly assigned to the VSV Astarte to be their spaceship operator.
After having finished boot camp in Mazerin, Vayshirin Jaralei was brought onboard the VSV Astarte and had a bit of an interview with acting XO, Marranr Serhan Nejem. He was promptly put on service on the bridge with the rest of the crew as a Starship Operator.
[Pre-Phase: Mission 3] Ghost on the Silent Line
During most of this mission Firuz was being given secondary roles while on the bridge. He was being heavily monitored, but considering he was entirely new, he was only given basic tasks and check ups, while the acting Starship Operator still took care of the VSV Astarte. After the conflict against the NVR was done, he managed to have a little bar time with some of the crew of the Bahram Wing, and socialized with them for a bit.
[Main Phase: Mission 3] Silent Garden
The vayshirin was put on a more active duty as the VSV Astarte traveled across the system to the ancient Garden of Mu'Klamal. There, the crew of the Vanguard's star ship began monitoring the area for rebels. After a quick talk with Akjit Chirimar during his break, he learned from an NVR prisoner of war that the attack to Mazerin had been mostly done by ignorant conscripts from outside the Iruotl System and automated machines, and that their real purpose had not been to destroy Mazerin's biosphere… After a quick rescue of Mridula Ituri Osei from a sabotaged elevator, Firuz made his way to bed and rested for the rest of his break. The young Cohronl's mind wondered about just what the Commonwealth knew, if they were hiding anything from the Vanguard, and who the saboteur was and how had he gotten in the ship before it finally drifted into sleep.
[Pre-Phase: Mission 4] Snakes in the Garden
After the saboteur made a huge mess of the engines of the ship and almost killed his friend Akjit, Firuz was pretty much forced to work endless hours at the bridge. When he got some time off he went to visit Akjit, which was at the sick bay and had finally recovered from his laser shot wounds. There was a meeting regarding a nearby rebel force that was presumed to be just outside of the Astarte's sensors. After wards he accompanied Ishtar, the Astarte's FIOMNI, who he decided to hang out with more for the sake of learning about his ship's NI, to the hangar, but was side-tracked for following Mridula. When he finally reached the hangar, however, he was told to return back to the bridge, as soon the operation would start and all hands would be needed on the bridge.
Firuz is capable of using all standard communications found in the Iromakuanhe Astral Commonwealth, in particular those employed by the Astral Vanguard. This includes laser, radio and MASC-enhanced variations in various formats and media. He is fluent in Saalsari and Haidasari, and can speak, read and write it correctly. He can communicate clearly even while under fire or in other unnerving situations. He is also very familiar with civil communications systems.
Firuz is proficient in both defensive and offensive hand-to-hand techniques as well as the use of several hand weapons, including knives, pistols, rifles, light explosives (such as grenades) and two-handed swords. He is in excellent physical form, with sufficiently high endurance to survive situations such as elevated G-forces. Firuz also used to be the leader of the Tower Diving team Raving Ravens and practices some other sports like Repulsion Dueling and Madua Noa (Martial Arts) and as such is very agile and has a high acrobatic tendency in physical confrontations.
Not only has Firuz been the leader of his own Tower Diving team in the past, he also took some pre-OST courses with some of his friends from boot camp where he learned some basic leadership skills. He is capable of giving and following tactical orders quickly and efficiently, communicate and coordinate strategies with team mates. He is capable of making use of the information given to him (tactical maps, target statistics, marked targets, etc) and finding relevant information to send to the rest of his unit.
Firuz is capable of basic medical techniques, including everything up to first aid, emergency care such as CPR or the Heimlich maneuver and the administering of prepared medicine, such as painkillers or stimulants.
Firuz is skilled in the operation of neural interface and analogue control systems in the context of starships of the corvette, or larger class. He has a general knowledge of most of the subsystems at work in his vessel, and a developed sense of navigation, spatial sense and maneuvering, in the case of both fleet and ship to ship combat. He understands how to use functions essential to his position, such as autopilot, navigational charts and fleet coordination.
Firuz has had extensive courses in the use of NI systems aboard the Organoid craft employed by the Astral Vanguard, and understands how to properly utilize his own entry ports to interface with compatible systems. The use of standard-issue electronic devices and conventional computers have also been a part of his education. During his trips with his commercial spaceship driving father, Firuz mastered the use of the Civiltech ANIOS years before he joined the Vanguard.
As a child mostly neglected by his uncle Fassad, he was forced to be able to take care of himself. Firuz has some fair cooking skills, excelling at making some dishes, and is very good at cleaning and keeping things tidy. He knows how to properly sweep, mop, dust and wash things without overdoing it or 'underdoing' it. Because his father worked with inventory and he helped him out a lot, he often keeps things very well-organized as to keep them from becoming lost in future occasions.
Firuz Jaralei is currently a Vayshirin in the Astral Vanguard. He receives a weekly salary of -200 KS- per week.
