|Organization:||United Outer Colonies Peacekeeping Forces|
|Rank:||Peacekeeper 3rd Class|
|Current Placement:||UCS Zenpyou|
Height: 5'7” Mass: 143 lbs
Build and Skin Color: Slim and athletic, shaped by years of swimming in Azorean waters. Dark blue skin with some gray accentuating the collar bone.
Facial Features and Eye Color: Thin, young and smooth. Veins follow the patterns of very pure ancestry from Henatu, stretching back through generations of careful breeding. His eyes are a smoky gray color.
Hair Color and Style: Wavrian's hair is kelp-green, left to grow naturally to shoulder length.
Distinguishing Features: Wavrian's body carries reminders of the chaos caused by the destruction of a Nepleslian ship by Hanako over the citystate that he was in at the time of first contact. His right arm has a thick, jagged scar on top of the lower bicep where it was trapped under debris, and all of the retractable finger-webbing of his right hand has been damaged beyond repair.
Personality: Wavrian is excitable, loyal, and looking to learn as much as he can about the vast new world that's been revealed to him. His upbringing in the serious and straightforward culture of the Azoreans has prepared him well for a military life, and he follows orders to the best of his capabilities while also trying to get as close as he can to new information. He is a fairly open and blunt person, which has earned him mixed results from those that he's interacted with. Although he keeps a level head about it, his damaged right arm has left him with a bitter grudge against Yuki Toshiro, who he mistakenly believes to have been the cause of the first contact explosion.
Likes: Working and learning. Dislikes: Inactivity/stasis and the feeling that others are hiding things from him. Goals: Go where no Azorean has gone before; prove the worth of the Azorean race to the galaxy.
Henatu Spawning Grounds
Wavrian never quite fit in with the other Azoreans of Henatu. While he did show signs from the very start that he had a good mind for tinkering and exceptional fine motor skills, he was always restless. He seemed to be constantly distracted, spending much of his early life daydreaming or exploring the oceans of Sudran. When he was absolutely unable to get away from his education, he proved himself to be an acceptable student, but it was always obvious that he'd much rather be somewhere else. Nearly every night that he spent sleeping brought dreams of escape, reaching for the sky. He couldn't dream of spending his entire life confined to this ball of water.
Reaching pre-adulthood didn't do a thing to change Wavrian's thoughts. The monotony of life on Sudran simply wasn't working for him. Almost all of his free time was spent windsurfing, aiming to fly higher and higher away from the wet, dismal existence that he faced underwater. Back below the surface, Wavrian was receiving training as a technician to work on the Rill and other mining technology. While he felt good about helping his species by doing maintenance, he still felt that there was something better that he could do. This, of course, led to many conflicts with his master, who had been working as an engineer for all of his life.
The chance finally came for Wavrian to make his dreams came true. When first contact was made with other alien species, Wavrian stayed on top of events. When Nepleslian freelancers came to Azorea for trade, Wavrian did the best that he could to gain their acceptance, even with the extreme language barrier. He finally got them to take him off-world, and from there, his travels began. Over time, he became conversationally fluent in Nepleslian, and his studies were started in earnest. He learned of the other factions and species of the galaxy. From there, the next logical step was to join a group that not only had noble goals, but also presented an opportunity for Wavrian to explore and meet other races. Wavrian worked his way into UOC space, swore allegiance to the UOC and took up Peacekeeper training.
Like Wavrian's elders on Sudran, the Peacekeepers quickly recognized the Azorean's affinity for machines. Alongside his standard training, he was given specialized courses to help him understand UOC technology and keep it in working order. The jump from sonic technology to lasers was a strange one, but Wavrian's knowledge of the Rill has helped him when dealing with Power Armor. His knack for wiring and system maintenance earned him the respect of other engineers, and he was all too happy to learn every new scrap of information that was thrown his way. When the UOC was satisfied with his skills, Wavrian was proud to be accepted as the first Azorean Peacekeeper.
Before first contact was made, Wavrian was expecting to join the forces of the Azorean Commonwealth as an engineer, helping to keep droids and equipment flowing through production. Over time, this has grown into a more general knowledge of how things work, fueled by a curiosity to keep learning more.
After he was done traveling through space with the Nepleslians, Wavrian was happy to undergo training and education in the UOC. He gladly took to studying the Peacekeeper Charter of YE 30, committing the lessons that he learned to heart and memory.
Wavrian was less enthusiastic about learning how to fight. It came as a relief to him to learn that the UOC promoted nonlethal combat styles focusing on incapacitation rather than termination, and his lithe build complemented the techniques well. Although he will take on an opponent in honorable unarmed combat if need be, he is very reluctant to use firearms or bladed weapons, namely because of his natural distrust of sharp objects as an Azorean.
Medical training was far more interesting to the Azorean. Learning how to heal, rather than to wound, was exciting and satisfying. Wavrian feels confident that if first aid training like his were to be made more available, disasters such as the one during the Azorean first contact could be dealt with more competently.
Wavrian is now fully fluent in Nepleslian and his native Azorean, and conversationally fluent in Yamataian, making him a valuable asset for negotiations. He took to comms systems and language training with vigor, exploring the languages taught to him by the UOC teachers as if language itself were a new land.
One of the strangest leaps in education that Wavrian has made came when it was time to bridge the gap between engineering and operation. Knowing how to build something and knowing how to use it properly are, surprisingly, two very different things. Wavrian's UOC trainers had to take a bit of extra time to get the Azorean used to the standard control layouts that a Peacekeeper needs to be made familiar with. After all of his training, Wavrian is quite comfortable operating computers, and has found them to be valuable tools in his quest for knowledge. His use of remotely operated devices, however, is still a little shaky. He's not quite used to the lack of sensory input.
A good engineer can make whatever you need and hope that it won't fail you. A great engineer will be right beside you when it does fail, and be prepared to patch it right back up. Wavrian follows this motto with gusto. His UOC trainers have familiarized him with a variety of ways in which equipment can fail, and consequently, how to fix it when it does. He has become excellent at keeping equipment in peak condition. Combined with his other engineering skills, he's equally at home fixing things up on the battlefield or in a scrap heap.
Wavrian is currently a Peacekeeper 3rd Class in the United Outer Colonies Peacekeeping Organization. He receives a weekly salary of -salary- per week.
