Personal History CHILDHOOD YEARS (NEWBORN - AGE 10)

Reven was born in the Anubei/Rayus estate in the city of Kiraktier, on the planet Tserra to Nashi (Prince) Hamon of Anubei, and his wife Osiraa.
His childhood was a relatively normal Tserran childhood, with nothing of importance to note.

TEENAGE YEARS (11 - 19)

For the first few years of Reven’s teenage years nothing of importance happened.
At the age of 15 he began attending the Tserran Defense Force Military Academy, where he would go until graduating when he was 20.

During his time at the T.D.F.M.A. he took his first life, a Tserran male a few years older than him. The Young Man had been harassing some of the female students, and when Reven called him out on this, the Young Man challenged Reven to a duel in accordance with Tserran Tradition and Law, stating that Reven had challenged his honor.

Reven won the duel, slaying the Young Man in honorable sword combat in the presence of many witnesses.

ADULT YEARS (20+)

Reven graduated from the T.D.F.M.A. when he was 20 years old, and immediately enlisted in the T.D.F. Air Corps.
Due to his relatively high ground combat scores at the academy he was very quickly promoted to Flight Sergeant.

At which point he was attached to the 6th Marine Legion, 1st Cohort, as a spotter for Air and Fire support. His first actual combat experience was on the Tserran colony world of Kitoiba, during this battle he was wounded as he was exiting the drop ship. Earning him his first award for being wounded in battle. He fought in many battles after this with the 6th Legion, before enrolling in the Tserran Air Corps Officer Candidacy School at the age of 65.

Five years later he graduated from T.A.C. OCS earning an Officer Commission. He served in various postings for the next eight years, during this time finally being promoted to the rank of Chief Flight Officer, and being assigned as the XO aboard the T.D.V. Rifus, where he would serve for the next 60 years.

At the age of 133 he was promoted to Colonel and given command of the T.D.V. Astra, where he met his Fiancé Emi Kiryu.
When he was 283 years old, he and his vessel fought in the 6th Battle of Kitoiba, destroying 32 vessels, including the Fioran flagship. For his actions in this battle, he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General, and given command of the new Tserran flagship the T.D.V. Azrael.
He commanded the Azrael for the next 305 years and in that time he was promoted to the rank of Major General.

In the year of 2379, Emi gave birth to their son Micsati. Six months later while he and Emi were down on Kitoiba surveying a new set of fortifications she was shot by a Fioran soldier drone, and Reven held her in his arms while she died.

This would prove to be the single most devastating event in his life, and he subsequently resigned his commission with the T.D.F., he spent the next several months on Tserra, where he lost himself in drink, and other intoxicating substances. He joined Starfleet to pull himself out of this destructive spiral.

He was granted a commission with the rank of Ensign in 2385, and assigned to the U.S.S. Potemkin as the ships Primary Helmsmen.

In 2390 at this point promoted to the rank of First Lieutenant, was reassigned as the Chief Tactical Officer aboard the U.S.S. Potemkin.

For a brief period in 2390, Reven was given a temporary field promotion by Admiral Mitchell, and promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Commander.
Pursuant to this, he was given temporary command of the Oberth class, Uss Yellowstone, with orders to take the vessel back to Starbase 22.

Upon returning to the Potemkin, he resumed his previous rank of First Lieutenant.

During the events of the Wotal Civil War, Reven disobeyed direct orders, shot his friend Flora Hazeline, and engaged the enemy commander Rin of Wotal in sword combat, despite all orders to the contrary.

Although this was done with the best intentions in mind, Reven was subjected to an unusual, yet still valid Court Martial, at the hands of Admiral Sorin. Reven was charged with numerous crimes, although "Critical Endangerment of Interstellar Peace" would have to be his favorite, resulting in a choice between demotion, or a six month prison sentence. Reven chose the prison sentence. Upon being released from Prison, he rejoined his former crew, under the command of Captain Mitchell.
