Psychological Characteristics


Reovan is a competitive girl who loves to go fast. She's quite religious and very serious about her personal physical and spiritual health. However she doesn't strive for individualism for the sake of being an individual, she simply feels that she has to be the best she can be. With a hands-on approach to most things in life, she hates it when other people do things for her without her permission. Though, there is a comfort level where she will allow it, such as with her father or older brothers. While she loves testing her senses as much as she can and experiencing new things, Reovan is wary about relationships with people, both with girls that she can't seem to relate to and with boys where she doesn't feel confident interacting with them in a romantic way.

Likes: Gualmyan Riding, Grilled Floatcrab, Fried Runyaens, Racing (Gualmyan or Liftcycles) Dislikes: Politics, Long and unnecessary explanations, Stuffy people who do everything “by the book”, the Metropolitan lifestyle. Goals: To prove to herself and the world of her abilities and to earn back the respect of her father.


From her training at the Monastery to her Mother's guidance, Reovan leads a rich spiritual life. While she's not as competent at speaking by rote as an Iromakuanhe who works in a temple, she does remember various sutras by heart, that she will repeat in certain situations.

On helping others:
Those who do sacrifice of themselves become one in the dreams of the Makuori where they contribute to the enjoyment of all Iromakuanhe by their presence and service to us all.“

A prayer to help calm her nerves in a stressful situation, this sutra reminds Reovan that the path of self-sacrifice for the good of everyone is a righteous one.

On leading a religious life:
The eternal Makuori and the sleeping Iromakuanhe, reason and consciousness, perception and contradiction.“

An observation to remind her the difference in following the Vigil in daily life and devoting one's life solely to the reverence of the Makuori.

On the sanctity of life:
What belongs to this existance is not owned by any being.“

This passage teaches that all life is sacred and that the taking of it is not something that should be treated lightly, even if the life you are taking belongs to your enemy.


Family: Bhagat(father), Reema(mother), Kamal(eldest brother), Mohan(elder brother), Chandra & Ishan(younger brothers, twins), Swapna(Sister-in-law), Kabir(uncle), Simi(aunt), Narsima(uncle), Dhanyata(aunt), Mallika(cousin), Chitrashi(cousin), Tej(cousin), Pushpinder(grandfather)


Born into a traditional Sund Wakir family on Maekardan, Reovan had her father's fierce orange eyes and her mother's dignified nose. Her father, Bhagat Mehta, was primarily a Gualmyan trainer and herder for the caravan, like his father was before him, but like many Sund Wakir there were many other jobs that he helped with and performed. Among those were that of a mechanic and repairman for the various GravElectric vehicles the caravan used. Reovan's mother, Reema, was a monastery nun who helped raise the young Sund Wakir that were dropped off for their early-age teaching. The two met while the caravan was stopped at the monastery dropping off it's young children and Reema was taken in by Bhagat's rough looks and charm and left the monastery to be with him. They married and years later had their first child, a son they named Kamal.

A year later they had another son, Mohan, and two years after that Reema gave birth to a daughter, Reovan. Five years later, when they had dropped off little Reovan at a monastary for her teaching, Reema gave birth to what she and Bhagat were expecting to be their final child, but instead she gave birth to twin boys. Four years later the caravan had made their way back and Bhagat picked up his only daughter as the twins were dropped off for their own teaching. In the years she had been separated from them, Reovan was surprised at how much her family had changed. Kamal and Mohan had followed mostly in their father's footsteps with “Little Mo,” as he had been nicknamed, being the more technically minded of the two. While they rode Gualmyan for work, they souped up Liftcycles for fun and raced them around the dunes with the other young teens. Reovan loved to follow her brothers around and idolized them and their hobbies.

Reema wished her daughter was more feminine, like Bhagat's sister Simi and her husband Kabir's two older girls, Mallika and Chitrashi. Of course, with two older sisters, they had the problem where their young son, Tej, who was only a year younger than Reovan, was quite feminine for a boy. Bhagat's younger brother Narsima, who was divorced by a wife who left the caravan, wasn't a very good influence on the kids either, as he encouraged them in their hobbies and helped them learn how to fix and build the cycles they raced. Even though she wished her daughter would follow in her footsteps by continuing to teach her from The Book of Dreams, Reema knew that it wasn't likely that Reovan would take that path in life. At the very least, those lessons would stay with her wherever she went in life. Neither her or her husband would ever dream that their daughter would go on to join the military. Reema's sister, Dhanyata, often scolded her younger sister on how she was bringing up her children, despite the fact that she apparently had none of her own.

Later on, Bhagat would curse himself for doting on his young daughter all that he did during these years. Reovan was her daddy's little girl and he indulged in whatever she wanted whenever she would shine her big orange eyes up at him with that look on her face. When the twins, Chandra and Ishan, came back from their own teaching, the five years and greater gap between them and their older siblings made things difficult for all the kids to get along. The older kids would leave the twins out of their fun and games and in retaliation the twins would strive to annoy and bother their elder siblings. Life in the Mehta household was quite active, to say the least. It was clear that Kamal would inhert the family business, and that Little Mo would follow along with him much like Bhagat and Narsima did with their father, Pushpinder, who was still alive and following along with the caravan in his old age. His wife, Reovan's grandmother, had died due to a rare bone disorder before she was born and thus, she never knew much about her. Similarly, Reovan didn't know all that much about her aunt Dhanyata either. She was pretty sure her aunt had been married at some point in the past, but she never felt right about asking her mother what had happened to her aunt's husband or why she now traveled with her sister. She did know for certain that Dhanyata had not been a nun as her sister had.

Kamal eventually met and married a young daughter of a merchant that the caravan had stopped to trade with, named Swapna. And while her brothers' futures were set, Reovan's was still up in the air. Her love for racing was such at the point that her parents feared that she might try and get into a professional circuit, but what actually happened was even worse than what they were imagining. The caravan had stopped at a Graiv Haidan base and while they were there, Reovan happened to see some test pilots flying the So-M1-1A Erla VANDR organoid units, by far the fastest vehicles she had ever seen. It was almost like love at first sight, but she was wary of the heights to which the giant frames could obtain. Reovan wasn't necessarily scared of heights, but it was both something scary and exciting to see. The day the caravan was leaving the base, Reovan announced her decision to her father that she was going to join the Astral Vanguard and become a pilot. He forbade her from doing so and no amount of pleading would turn his heart.

In addition to his fierce-looking eyes, Reovan had also inherited her father's wild streak from when he himself was a young person. And even though it broke her heart to defy her father, two nights later she snuck out and rode her liftcycle back to the base to sign up. She could remember when he had taught her how to ride a Gualmyan and how she had fallen off, hurt herself and started to cry. Bhagat had told her that if she cried, the Gualmyan wouldn't want her to ride him and he'd continue to throw her from the saddle. So, she wiped off her tears and got back up on the lizard and tried again. She took what her father said to heart and when she'd have a nasty spill from a liftcycle crash, she wouldn't cry. And even though her brothers would be the first to make sure their little sister was okay, the other boys were definitely impressed with how she handled herself. So, when she cried that night as she rode back to the base it was definitely not something she did lightly. After boot camp and basic training, she returned to the caravan before she shipped off on assignment and though all four of her brothers were glad to see her again, her father refused to come out and greet his daughter and her mother only had scolding words for Reovan. Despite this, she did give her daughter her old copy of the Book of Dreams to help guide her on whatever path she chose to take in life.

However, this is what she wants to do, and if it means she'll have to earn her father's love back, well she's determined she's just going to do that to.

Astral Vanguard

Boot Camp (AR 935)

While going through standard recruit training at Barazai Base in the Nuocr Expanse, Reovan was on leave on day, taking a ride through the dunes. Stopping in at Atangr Camp to pick up some parts for her liftcycle she ran into the self-professed scoundrel Savitar Ananta, who challenged her to a race out in the desert. Unfortunately their race came to a halt when a sudden sandstorm caught them unawares and they had to seek urgent cover. After spending the night together, Reovan took off in the morning without knowing that they both were in the Astral Vanguard.

Training (AR 935)

In the El Bazr Asteroid Field, Reovan along with her fellow recruits, a pair of Eyr Ranr, Zus Storhan and Zalus Ka'salm, performed the final step of their training as VANDR Frame Runners. It was a live-fire exercise conduced by one of their their instructors, Vayranr Faiza Sasztreizi. After demonstrating the capabilities of the organoid units, however, Faiza interrupted the exercise to inform the recruits that a Civil War had broken out in the Outer Colonies and that she would be defecting and joining the effort against the Vanguard. The recruits were shocked, and despite the girls' willingness to try a non-violent solution, Zalus charged ahead and attacked the defecting instructor. His frame was disabled quickly, and Reovan and Zus had to defend themselves against the now aggressive enemy. After a short firefight, Reovan managed to distract Faiza long enough to give Zus a chance to attack, one that proved deadly to the turncoat.

Afterwards back at the base, while the recruits were cleaning up they were visited by Vaygraiv Sankhur 'Crimson Hound of Veyrin' Frazig, the base commander of Fort Jariza. He told them that what they experienced was actually a recreation of events that occurred six months prior and the M1 VANDR they fought actually contained an autofunction unit that contained the battle-data from their instructor, who was actually communicating with them from back at the base. He then told the trio that they were being transferred to a base on Mazerin where they would report to a Marranr Serhan Nejem as a part of Bahram Wing.

Fort Jariza (AR 935)

On the cold of Mazerin, Reovan was introduced to the rest of the members assigned to Bahram Wing which included not only her training partners from El Bazr, but also Savitar, whom she was quite surprised to see again. Also in the group was the Temple GuardMu'Tasim Farouk, whose good looks and devotion to the Vigil turned her head.

Mission 1

After receiving her own So-M1-1A Erla VANDR unit, which she christened Jarita, she took off with the rest of Bahram Wing. On patrol the wing received a distress call from a downed civilian transport. Reovan worked with Shokhi Isacuiha Miyorh to get the damaged transport to Ghoroun Six, a small nearby fort, while the rest of the wing finished off the ??-M?-?? Soono Frame units that had apparently attacked the wrecked craft.



Reovan is in excellent physical shape, keeping both an extremely active lifestyle combined with a serious exercise regiment. She has excellent endurance and can withstand elevated G-forces. She's proficient in the use of all standard Astral Vanguard hand weapons including pistols and faelraig. Her exercise regiment includes training and practice in a Sund Wakir martial art that is characterized by having lots of flowing and extraneous movements that is more used as in dance-like demonstrations rather than being useful in actual combat situations.

Technology Operation

Reovan has passed all courses in the use of NI systems aboard the Organoid craft employed by the Astral Vanguard, and understands how to properly utilize her own entry ports to interface with compatible systems. In addition she's familiar with the electronic systems used in GravElectric machines such as the Liftcycle.


Reovan is capable of using all standard communications found in the Iromakuanhe Astral Commonwealth, in particular those employed by the Astral Vanguard. This includes laser, radio and MASC-enhanced variations in various formats and media. She is fluent in Saalsari and Haidasari, and can speak, read and write it correctly. She can communicate clearly even while under fire or in other unnerving situations.


Reovan is capable of basic medical techniques, including everything up to first aid, emergency care such as CPR or the Heimlich maneuver and the administering of preprepared medicine, such as painkillers or stimulants. In particular she's quite proficient in quick-response aid to victims of high-speed collisions or injuries sustained from being thrown from a vehicle or animal. Additionally Reovan is skilled with the care and treatment of Gualmyan.


Reovan has advanced comprehension and practical ability in the piloting of a Powered Frame unit, GravElectric Liftcycles (and similar vehicles) and Gualmyan. She is capable of flying, driving and riding under most conditions and operating all of the onboard weaponry safely and efficiently in combat scenarios. She can make complex battlefield maneuvers while under high stress and adjust her movements to compensate for all logical combat variables. Additionally she is quite familiar with repair and maintenance of GravElectric vechiles including being able to diagnose the most common problems that crop up from heavy use.


Reovan has learned the essentials of tactics and command, but neither has the desire or the required level of mastery to put herself in a command position. She is capable of giving and following tactical orders quickly and efficiently in combat scenarios and can follow the command structure of her unit or wing while under highly stressful conditions. She is capable of making use of the information given to him (tactical maps, target statistics, marked targets, etc) and finding relevant information to send to the rest of her unit.


From her training at the monastery and her continued education from her mother, Reovan has a wide array of knowledge of the religious texts of the Iromakuanhe can recite from memory various passages of blessings and prayers. She's familiar with the procedures and necessities for most ceremonies and is familiar with the duties and procedures of a monastery caretaker.
