His persistence can be taken as being rude or invasive. Enjoys exploration and encountering new personalities/races. Able to discern when something is not quite as it should be. Believes in being a leader that cares about those who he serves with and under. His experiences with his fathers business and brothers imprisonment have left him with a higher morale standard than most.
Parents are both alive, has 3 siblings (2 brothers, 1 sister). Youngest brother is in jail, other two siblings have families of their own. Father is Jamis Stone, owns and operates a interplanetary shipping company. Fairly wealthy but not excessively so. His mother, Winona Stone, stays at home and socializes mostly although she has done some secretarial work for Jamis's business. Older brother Jayce has taken up his fathers business as a partner, as well as being a part time pilot for the company. His sister Lacey is still rather young but is an aspiring singer, possessing a charming voice and personality. Younger brother Alshane used to also be a partner in his fathers business with Jayce and Rafe but got mixed up in the shipping of illegal narcotics and was eventually apprehended and sentenced to a decade in prison.
As a kid, Rafe was always interested in strategy games and sports. Not especially combative as a child, but he did have a loose temper until he learned to control it during his teenage years. He was an average student in most areas, except for languages, where he excelled, literature, and sports. After finishing his basic education he attended a business college, and while he didn't enjoy it, he earned a business degree with a minor in law. Being a partner is his father's business helped him make some friends, but also showed him the darker side of the economic world. On top of the unethical education, he learned how to pilot smaller aircraft and fire all manner of weapons. Upon the arrest of his brother, Rafe promptly quit the business, and enlisted in the military hoping to become an investigator, or some other law related job.
Has had extensive training with computer systems, creating networks and interfacing with various technological items such as mainframes and intermodal systems. Is familiar with most systems used smaller ships and the civilian side.
Knows the common trade languages and some homeland dialects. Studied the common trade languages extensively and is very familiar with various homeland dialects as well as those of surrounding worlds. Knows Yamataian, Seraphim and Trade fluently as well as a basic understanding of Abwheran. Most of this learning was obtained by interaction with peoples who spoke those tongues natively while he worked for his fathers shipping business.
Takes great interest in the strategies and tactics used by famous warriors/generals. Has studied most major campaigns and undertakings and the tactics used to counter invasions and win both short and extended wars and battles. Also has some business acumen from his time with his fathers business.
Has obtained a proficiency is hand to hand combat but prefers ranged marksmanship weapons. Did excel with pistols even despite that preference. Frequently hunted feral wildlife as a hobby so he did develop a sharp eye.
Has never had problems with physical activities. Has good endurance and agility but is not exceptionally strong. Was always among the fastest in his peer group growing up.
As a young adult learned some “street skills” such as lock picking and slight of hand but does not consider them honorable to use against his comrades. Is not beyond keeping those skills sharp however.
Knows how to tend to his own cleaning and cooking, can provide for himself without being micro managed. Cleans his own uniform and maintains a meticulous appearance around his seniors.
