Taurus Characters

Commander William Guynes
Taurus CO
Home world: Caprica
Age 43
Weight / Height: 210 lbs, 6’3 1/2
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blondish-Red

Commander Guynes graduated in the top five percent of his class in war and command colleges. During basic training, he was considered the 2nd best recruit in his class. When he was younger, William was the typical over-achiever. This won his friends and a few enemies along the way.

Commander Susan Vance had been initially selected as Intrepid's XO. Seven months before space trials were to begin, she was killed in a rafting accident on Aerelon. Admiral Jacobs sent immedate requests to several friends for a good replacement.

William Guynes was serving as a destroyer commander escorting the Columbia. He was recommended to Jacobs by the Columbia’s CO with the very unofficial note “Will is a great guy. He handles command well and is driven. Watch it, Tom…he may take your job at some point (grin)”.

With that, Admiral Jacobs met with Guynes. After the meeting, Jacobs requested Guynes to serve as Intrepid's XO. Fleet Command approved the request two days later.

Told he was really too tall for vipers, Guynes took CIC training and is an expert with communications and weapons control. Two years ago, he met his wife on the Intrepid. Lt. Jenni McDowell serves as a nurse. William’s father died in a car accident when he was 22. His mother, brother and sister all live on Caprica. He is the oldest of the children.

Callsign: Battlemaster
Ship: Taurus
Rank: Captain
Position: Taurus CIC officer - Weaponry, Flight Operations and Navigation

PERSONALITY AND HOBBIES
Personality: Generally friendly, especially to the ladies. Likes to have fun on his off time. Kevin sometimes will stay quiet in new situations until he gets comfortable with people. On duty, he’s all business…with an occasional joke to break tension (when warranted). In combat, he’s deadly business.

Hobbies, etc: Physical training, poker, astronomy, guitar playing and beer making.

BACKGROUND FAMILY HISTORY:
Father was a politician that did not approve of Kevin’s military career and disowned him. Assumed dead when Caprica City was nuked. Mother although she didn’t approve of his career, didn’t disown him. She attended his graduations and made time for him when he was on leave.

Kevin has an older brother named Victor who was following in the footsteps of the father. He also has a younger sister who serves as a nurse on the Galactica. It was her first tour when the war broke out. Much like Kevin, she was disowned by her father for joining the colonial navy.


OTHER CHARACTER HISTORY:
He was going to marry his fiancé Belinda Monroe when he returned from Intrepid’s one-year exploration tour. She was a secretary in the Colonial Department of Education on Picon. He feels certain she is dead.

In the days after the start of the war, he was rumored to have had a tryst with Major Sabrina Watkins, who is the assistant CAG on the Intrepid.

MILITARY RECORD AND HISTORY: Graduated basic flight training, then advanced flight training, and finally War College. After War College, he served two years on the Columbia.

Butler then was then transferred to the Intrepid as she was completing space trials. He has been there for the last four years. Before the start of the exploration tour, Kevin was named lead pilot of the Black Hat Squadron. He was also one of the people who developed the Scout Raptor.

Commander Guynes (XO of the Intrepid) was going to put in a recommendation for Lt. Butler to attend Command College on Caprica.

Height: 5’10
Weight: 175
Description: See photo

Colony: Aquaria

Background:
Chaplain DeShera was torn when he was growing up on what he wanted to do in life. His father was a well-respected priest on Aquaria and Conlin was groomed to enter the priesthood. He was also influenced by an uncle that served in the first Cylon War.

This uncle also took his nephew to many boxing matches. At the age of 9, he started boxing a gym near his home. Some of his family members felt that if it wasn't for the priesthood, Conlin would have gone into boxing.

After graduating seminary, DeShera spent several years doing temple work. At the age of 30, he made the life-changing decision and joined the Colonial Marines. After going through basic and “field priest” training, he spent his first assignement at a field hospital on Sagittaron. He would go on to do three more tours there.

The year before the Cylon attack, Conlin was assigned to the Intrepid for its year-long exploratory cruise. After the Intrepid was abandoned, he was placed on the Taurus. Several marines call “The Oldest Grunt”…until they meet his left hook.

Kersh was one of the first people selected to the Intrepid crew while the ship was still under construction.

Writer: JDCTexas
Character Name: Captain Daniel Storm
Home World: Tauron
Rank/Job title: Marine CO, Battlestar Taurus
Age: 34
Height: 6’1”
Weight: 245
Marital Status: Single
Description: See pictures

Captain Storm is a second-generation Colonial Marine. Both of his parents served and they met while serving on Caprica. Storm grew up a ‘marine brat’, following his parents from duty station to duty station. He was the oldest of three children. From the age of four, all young Daniel wanted to be was a marine.

At the age of 16, he entered the Marine Academy on Picon. After four years, he graduated in the top 5% of his class. He excelled in sports, science and history during this time. Besides the basic skills a marine learns, Storm was found to have a knack for intelligence, assault planning and leadership.

Storm had progressed quickly and was on the track to make Major before his 35th birthday. Known to be a good, but tough leader, he had the respect of those he commanded…as well as those who commanded him. He performed four tours of combat duty on Sagittaron, quelling civil unrest.

On Day 0, Captain Storm was a part of a war game that was about to start when the Cylons attacked. Battle damaged, the large troop transport performed a blind jump. After limping in space for ten hours, they were found by a heavy fleet tug and the Cloud 9 Luxury Liner, Nimbus.

After finding his senior officers dead, Capt. Storm took charge of the 1400 troops on the transport and (for the most part) kept order until they were found by the Intrepid Fleet. Storm formed the Military Criminal Investigation Team (MCIT) to help track down a rapist/murderer on the Leonis Pride (Intrepid Storyline). He was also named CO of the Marine MarDet on the Taurus, where he serves as of this time.

Not much has changed for Capt. Storm since meeting up with the Libra fleet, although he was happy (and relieved) to see more marines and other survivors, in particular Col. Riley, Maj. Duncan and Gunnery Sergeant Razorski.

Writer: JDCTexas
Character Name: Lt. Ramona Neuman
Home World: Libra
Rank/Job title: Marine XO / Intell Officer, Battlestar Taurus
Age: 29
Height: 5’7”
Weight: 124
Marital Status: Single
Description: See pictures

Background: Growning up, Ramona Neuman was the little girl who many considered had it ‘good’ in small-town on Libra. She was born and raised in the farm town of Hardtner. (population 5200). Her father was a small-town newspaper editor/owner while Ramona’s mother was a nurse. She had a younger brother who was being groomed to take over the newspaper business. At the age of 17, she shocked family and friends when joined the Marines.

After her first tour of duty, Ramona double majored in Law Enforcement and Military Intelligence Studies at a regional university on her home planet while serving in a reserve unit.

After graduation, she returned to active duty where she served in Marine Intelligence. At the time of the Cylon Attacks, she was a Marine Intelligence officer on the Scorpius (Intrepid Episodes). She moved on to the Taurus and was a founding member of the Military Criminal Investigation Team (M-CIT) as well as Chief Intelligence officer.

In her off time, she loves to paint, draw, dance and swim. Neuman is also a very good Colors player and had built up a (currently worthless) pile of cubits. She is serious when on duty and sometimes hard to approach during off hours, until you get to know her. Ramona’s circle of friends is small, but they know she will bend over backwards to help them in a time of need.

Although she will never admit it, Ramona is a huge soap opera fan and has traded for discs of old shows with other people in the fleet. It’s also rumored that she has one of the bigger ear-tunes collection in the fleet.

Height: 5'6"
Weight: 124 lbs.
Description: Dark brown hair, hazel eyes
Race: caucasian
Marital Status: single (divorced)/on and off relationship with Maj. Scott Duncan, Bellerophon MarDet
Colony: Aerlon
Personality: Intelligent, analytical, impatient, decisive, loyal, courageous... with a wild streak. Xenthais would rather beg forgiveness than ask for permission.
Background Info: Jolly Merconi served with Inga Mueller in the Columbia and the Delphinus, and they became fast friends. Inga mustered out but Xenthais remained until retirement. While still in the service, Xenthais married Owen Morris, who had been her and Inga's CAG in the Columbia. After 22 years of marriage, Owen fell in love with another woman and divorced Xenthais. He kept the townhouse and the business; she kept the beach house and Terpsichore, the 60-foot ship she helped design. The divorce, which was final just a few weeks before the attack, left Xenthais bitter, aimless and very very rich.

Xenthais dotes on Inga's girls like an over-indulgent aunt.

She is currently pregnant with Maj. Scott Duncan's child - conceived D90.

Xenthais became XO of Taurus on D139.

Major Lane Azmos
Taurus Chief Engineer
Home World: Leonis
Age 39
Weight / Height: 190 lbs, 5'10
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Brown

Image

On Day 0, Lane Azmos was the Assistant Chief on the Battlestar Scorpius with then Chief Engineer (Major) Dean Wilson. He also served as a team member that brought the Taurus back to life.

When Dean Wilson was promoted to XO position, Azmos was the natural choice to be the chief engineer. Through hard work and occasionally picking the brain of his mentor (Wilson), The 'Bull' was raging in space again.

Growing up, Lane was always interested in all thing mechanical. His father was an pro-am race car driver that spent his weekends in the summer racing at small regional tracks. By the age of eleven, he was welding and repairing the family racer.

Upon graduating from school, Lane spent three years in the Colonial Merchant Marine before going into the navy. His first duty station was on board the Destroyer Alexander I. Lesvos. There he met then-lieutenant Dean Wilson, the ship's #3 engineer. When Wilson became chief engineer years later on the Lesvos, he made Lane his assistant chief. As Wilson made his way to other ships, he found ways to convince the ship captains to get Azmos transfered as well.

Lane was never married and has no children. On Day 0, his parents and two sisters were killed by a nuke that hit the capital city of Leonis.

Character Name: Eric Palmisano
Rank/Job title: Colonial Marine Corps, Captain
Age: 29
Height: 6'1''
Weight: 185 pounds
Marital Status: single
Colony: Caprica

Eric Palmisanos childhood on Caprica was defined by his parents academic backgrounds. With his mother working as a high school teacher and his father holding History courses at the University of Caprica City, Eric always was a "teachers pet" in the eyes of his fellow students.

Owing to that, young Eric quickly developed both a deep-seated need to prove himself to others, to show that he could do without any outside help. His grades reflected that, showing that he had inherited both his fathers near-eidetic memory and his mothers work ethics. Eric went on to College to get his bachelor's degree in History and Military studies, to his fathers delight, but when he entered the Marine Corps to become a commissioned officer afterwards, his parents had a hard time understanding his decision and their relationship suffered from it.

Life in the Colonial Marines was everything Eric had thought it would be and he quickly made his way through the different training courses before being assigned to the Destroyer Perseus' MarDet...




Image
Name: Matthias Gunnarsen
Rank/Job Title: Senior Chief Petty Officer, Colonial Fleet
Age: 36
Height: 5’10”
Weight: 200
Marital Status: Married
Colony: Gemenon
Gunnarsen grew up in a middle-class family on Gemenon. His high school sweetheart, Janna, became pregnant shortly before they both graduated from high school. Against the wishes of both families, the two married right after graduation and Matt joined the Colonial Navy so he could support his new wife and expected child. Much to everyone else’s surprise, their marriage was a strong one, and they went on to have ten children, including two sets of twins.

Gunnarsen has served in maritime law enforcement for his entire Fleet career, with duties that included security, crowd control, criminal investigation, shore patrol, hostage rescue, and counter-terrorism. He was assigned to the Pegasus, and promoted to Senior Chief Petty Officer shortly before the cylon attacks. Right before Pegasus went in for refit, Gunnarsen was transferred to the Tauranian Titan on a temporary assignment.

Name: Stephanie “Stevie” Perez
Rank/Job Title: Sergeant in the Colonial Marines, Weapons Specialist
Age: 26
Height: 5’5”
Weight: 125
Marital Status: Single
Colony: Canceron

Stephanie Perez grew up in the slums of Mangala, one of Canceron’s largest cities. Both her parents were “Ten Dark” gang members, and she was initiated into the gang when she was twelve. A year later, her mother was killed in a gang-related shooting. Her father Emidio insisted that she stay in school, but taught her all the tricks of their gang trade: supplying illegal weapons for anyone who could pay. He intended for her to be his second-in-command when she was old enough. When she was sixteen, both she and Emidio were caught in an intensive police investigation sting operation. Emidio was killed in the high-security cell where he was being held just four days after he was arrested; the killer was never caught.

Instead of sentencing Stevie to juvenile detention, the judge sent her to a gang-rehabilitation program, even though the program was designed for adults. The program was a physically and mentally demanding eighteen-month course run by former military members in a boot-camp manner. Surprising everyone but herself, Stevie excelled in the program. When she completed the program, two months short of her eighteenth birthday, Stevie joined the Colonial Marines.

Sergeant Perez is a tough, no-excuses Marine who only trusts a selected few people—those who have proven themselves to her in combat. She has served on the destroyer Perseus for two years.

Name: Corporal Raylee Stark
Age: 24
Origin: Born and raised on Picon.
Assigned: Battlestar Taurus, MCIT.

Background: Stark grew up around firearms - her father was a sniper on a large urban Police force and her older brother a designated marksman with the CBI. She learned to shoot starting on her tenth birthday and began shooting competitively two years later. In high school she joined Fleet ROTC because it offered a Rifle course for credit and allowed her to compete against the boys. In her senior year she was the Picon Shooting Sports Association marksmanship champion. Stark attended Perkinston Technical College for two years, earning an Associates Degree in Administration of Justice. She surprised everyone in her family when she didn't continue in their Law Enforcement tradition, but rather joined the Colonial Marines shortly after graduation from college.

Stark is typically a rules-breaker, which has gotten her into a lot of trouble during her Marine career. She will, however, knuckle down when the pressure is on, a fact which has barely kept her in the good graces of her superiors. She is an inveterate flirt but seldom strays beyond that, which has resulted in her being labeled a 'tease' on some past occasions.

Stark was among the 1400 Marines who escaped the cylon attacks on the transport Kang Tai. She was assigned to the Taurus MarDet when that ship was salvaged, and later posted to MCIT when that unit was formed.

AIR CREW
Image
Name: Timothy McCue
Callsign: "Stick"
Age: 24
Origin: Born on Gemenon, raised on various military bases.
Assigned: Battlestar Libra, Embarked Air Wing, Archangel Squadron

Background: Tim McCue is the son of a career fleet pilot. McCue's father progressed through the pilot ranks, serving as CAG on the Battlestar Triton and then later as the Fleet CAG for Battlestar Group 69. He continued his rise, serving in a number of administrative positions, and was a Senior Instructor at Fleet's ATAC (Advanced Tactical Aerospace Combat) pilot training facility. Tim McCue knew he had little choice but follow in his father's footsteps.

McCue is the younger (by three minutes) of twin brothers. The older twin, Thomas, was academically gifted and became an aerospace engineer after graduating from college. Tim, though equally intelligent, was not as earnest in applying himself and only graduated in the middle of his high school class. He spent five roller-coaster years in college before graduating with a bachelor's degree in military history. He joined the Fleet and attended ATAC, graduating with unremarkable scores. He was assigned to the Battlestar Libra twelve months before the cylon attacks.

McCue is sometimes accused of being "wound too tight", and is often the pilot who enforces rules with his squadron mates. Once called a "stick in the mud" by a female pilot, someone connected that phrase with McCue's surname, and the callsign "Stick" was born. McCue's behavior has become increasingly pessimistic since the fleet departed the Colonies, and has taken a yet darker turn since the death of his wingleader, Erica "Dusty" Schneider.
