Galar is a player character, who is played by Zephyrite
Galar Vanatosk's name was taken from 2 sources: Galar is a dwarf from Norse Mythology, who with his brother, killed a giant to get his hands on the mead of wisdom. Vanatosk is a twist from the 2 terms in Norse Mythology: Ranatosk the squirrel messenger who runs up and down the world tree, Yggdrasil. And Vanahiem, which was the home of the Vanir, who were the fertility gods and goddesses.
Galar looks very scandanavian, except with black hair and slate grey eyes. He has a very average build, but with his Star Army training, is still someone who you wouldn't want to pick a fight at the bar with.
Galar is really very average looking, except for his lazy appearence, which used to get him into trouble at the academy. He makes sure to look nice at ceremonies however.
Galar loves reading and will go out of his way to find a good and/or rare book. Other crew members give him weird looks for this. Also an avid collector of manga, Galar is up on the news of his favorite series. However, with his life being really hectic lately, he has not heard of any new releases.
Galar Vanatosk has no memory of the past 23 years of his life or why he ended up awakening in an escape pod in the middle of nowhere with only one memory, his own name. After he was picked up by a passing convoy using a communications booster he made from scratch, he entered the univerity in the capitol of Yamatai. To make money for his living arrangements, Galar worked in a vehicle garage, repairing and gaining knowlege on how machines work. He graduated with a degree in engeneering, communications and cryptology. After that, Galar decided to go into the star army of Yamatai.
He was sent to the YSS Goban, which right before he had joined, it seemed like the crew had no luck whatsoever. This streak of bad luck had not disapeared, as they resided in the enemy's prison for a time.
That ordeal over, Galar has transferred into SAINT operations and came together with new crewmembers to staff the new ship: the YC-28.
Galar was transferred to the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet and took part in the 17th armor wing, which involved him in a romantic relationship, which was rudely interrupted by a terrorist attack, as well as an immediate offer to command a ship, which was one of his recent goals.
Commanding a kyaa-class search and rescue vessel, Galar and his team rescued abandoned SS pods in the previously Misshu territory. They were surprised to find a NH-17 still alive inside a husk of an old Star Army of Yamatai ship.
After this event, Galar quite the military and is now striking out as an independent.
Galar would really like to know this information as well.
