Family (or Creators)

(Biological Father) One of the several men from the airship Lar’akri (Father) Yarsis Ka'salm (Mother) Meraki Ka’salm


Zalus was born on the airship Lar'akri. He was brought up by the crew as well as his parents. This led to him being very good with other people and because of the openness of his fellow crewmen he was taught how to flirt with girls and was brought up as such. Zalus was taught how to operate certain systems of the airship but he was also taught some medical skills so he could help any other crew member if they were injured or, if they were female, needed relaxation.

He joined the Astral Vanguard because it promised adventure and new lands, with new women. So far he hasn't been let down by that promise.


First mission: 1. long range kill. 2. Shot in the chest during close combat.

Second mission: 3. Sword to the chest. 4. Sword kill after a distraction. 5. Massive fire at close range. 6. MASC jumped away while connected.

Third mission: 7. Killed by two long range Shockbite shots. 1-5 killed in a volley of fire. 2 in running. 1 In melee.



Zalus is proficient in both defensive and offensive hand-to-hand techniques as well as the use of several hand weapons, including knives, pistols, rifles and light explosives such as grenades. He is in excellent physical form, with sufficiently high endurance to survive situations such as elevated G-forces.

Technology Operation

Zalus has had extensive courses in the use of NI systems aboard the Organoid craft employed by the Astral Vanguard, and understands how to properly utilize his own entry ports to interface with compatible systems. The use of standard-issue electronic devices and conventional computers have also been a part of his education.


Zalus 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. He is fluent in Saalsari and Haidasari, and can speak, read and write it correctly. He can communicate clearly even while under fire or in other unnerving situations.


Zalus 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 prepared medicine, such as painkillers or stimulants. He also has specialized training as a Chiropractor and masseuse. His training has made him very familiar with the anatomy of a woman’s body especially.


Zalus has advanced comprehension and practical ability in the piloting of a Powered Frame unit, capable of flying under most conditions and operating all of the onboard weaponry safely and efficiently in combat scenarios. He can make complex battlefield maneuvers while under high stress (combat, etc) and adjust his movements to compensate for all logical combat variables (gravity, weapons fire, atmospheric conditions, etc). He understands the basic functionality of his machine and can make basic repairs to certain subsystems.


Zalus is trained in many different dance styles from modern to contemporary. On the Lar’akri dancing was important to crew and zalus took to the tradition with no resistance.


Zalus has learned the essentials of tactics and command, but has not achieved the required level of mastery to put himself in a command position. However, he is capable of giving and following tactical orders quickly and efficiently in combat scenarios and can follow the command structure of his unit or wing while under highly stressful conditions (combat, etc). He 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 his unit.
