Viras loved puzzles. Taking them apart, putting them back together, and starting the whole process over again. He loved the smooth feeling of metal on metal, or wood on wood, the two pieces sliding together to fit. Born a single child. His family doted on him, so he was never without a new puzzle to toy around with. Throughout his young life, he found himself drawn to puzzles whenever he wasn't socializing with his family. His schooling was normal, and he made a few friends in his classes. None particularly close, mind you, but they were still there. He actually made it past his first year of high school, but soon dropped out from the intensity of the “new thought” teachings.
His near fet|shization of puzzles continued as he sought employment. Viras found himself joining the military, seeing as few other professions really mattered. His family practically pushed him into the service, thinking he would make a great technician. He found himself learning the trade that technicians learned, assembling and reassembling armor and guns. But, what he found to be truly satisfying was tweaking guns. Fiddling around. Finding what made each part tick. He went too far with this one day and messed with the wrong gun. It exploded, badly injuring a superior officer. He owned up to this mistake, but the damage was already done. He was sent to the unit almost immediately.
The squad Vidiam joined was deployed in an alien city, where a rebellion was taking place. Said squad was ambushed, and all memembers killed save for a few. The rebels needed an engineer to help them fix the satellite array on a communications tower for their own purposes. Vidiam reluctantly complied, secretly sabotaging the satellites as long as he could. Once he was “done” with “fixing” them, he sprung his trap and collapsed the bunch, then jumped off of the roof and hoped his thrusters would propel him to safety.
It was here that he met up with the leaders of his bad-luck company, and through some minor hostile negotiations, he was recognized and aided in ACTUALLY fixing some satellites. Oh, and he accidentally shot some teammates.
The unit was tasked with a new mission: Taking the alien, Shen'lon, back to the space facility where her body was discovered and find out what happened to her people. Vidiam and the others, after getting settled aboared their new home away from home, the group suits up and heads out. The facility is infested with two kinds of disgusting creature, and both try to eat the kith for dinner, one more so than the other. Vidiam actually goes for a lovely whiplash journey from one trying to throttle him, but other than that the group's injuries pile on as they go deeper, until they meet the mysterious alien man in the depths.
Vidiam spends most of his time on Armory duty, and meets Rjo in the process. Rjo, a fellow technician, is an engineer for the exo-kith. The duo enjoy their friendship frequently, meeting over dinner the next day to talk and the like. Vetel, who proposed the invitation, never showed up.
Later, the ship goes into emergency mode because of a potential alien threat.
Vidiam and the rest of the unit are tasked with eliminating an NMX holding out in frontier space and rescuing the Neshaten, Shen'lon. They dropped into a dismal city with a slave populace, but the battle started suddenly and quickly as the unit took fire. New tanks and an Exosuit unit aided them in their battle, but many injuries and losses were still taken by the unit.
He joined Rjo in her exosuit to replace her downed copilot, and together they brought down a building on a bunch of Rippers, smashed others with fisticuffs, and powerbombed a third. Rjo nearly died and Vidiam took control of the exosuit after that.
Lies irritated Vidiam at his post in the armory, so he squirted the cadet with a spray bottle full of water. Lies promised revenge after that.
Later, he and Rjo were fixing up the ship on maintenance duty and had a blossoming romantic moment interspersed with pest control.
The unit check in on a Yamataian colony which seemed to stop reporting back to the motherland. At first glance, everything seemed fine, but as the unit soon found out, horrible bugs caused rolling blackouts and electronic malfunctions while the climate forced their weapons not to work. Vidiam was forced to construct ballistae and handheld crossbows out of supplies, but got shot in the head by a creature with sharp barbs and went unconscious. He reawoke to an empty and dark hospital to a voice in his head claiming to be his self-preservation. He managed to kill one of the creatures with a jury-rigged grenade made from janitorial supplies. Later, he made contact with some surviving children only to nearly die to the mother of the creature he killed before - but narrowly killing it in the process. In his unconscious state, he made contact with an orange, enigmatic alien who applauded Vidiam, skeptical as he was, and his survivalism. He awoke after nearly twenty minutes to find that the creature had cleaved his second heart and absolutely several other vital organs. The unit found him soon enough and by the miracle of medical technology had him stable - but decided to pull out of the settlement as soon as possible.
