The first thing people will note is the energy level of Russ and some would say that he always seem ready to fly off his seat. One of the biggest passions of his life is flying and you find him talking about different ships or about his personal craft. In combat due to his inexperience he has been disciplined several times for inappropriate comm chatter.

With these quirks he also very loyal both to his follow pilots in arms as well as the empire as whole. Due to his family being rescued in a engagement against Kuvexian this had made him feel in-debited further to the empire.


Born to a loving family in YE 21 on-board the family Cargo ship Raven's Flight. Russ Tycho would have a interesting upbringing being raised and training onboard the old freighter. While still getting a semi normal education via e-mails and vr class rooms most of the thing he would learn was from both his parents. Some of the main things they would teach him is finical, mathematics and of course piloting. The hope of both the parents and also there young son would be he would take over the business one day.

As he got older he would take part more and more in the family business. Starting as a basic crewman he would learn almost every part of maintaining his void home. This would be from everything from basic hull repairs, to jerry rigging airlock doors till they could be replaced this would give him a solid technical knowledge of the ship.But as he tolled away every day he wanted to pilot the ship.

He would eventually get his chance by his 16th birthday when his parents felt like he earned his time. His father would take the time to teach his son how to pilot the old freighter. Easily finding he was a natural pilot he would steadily become the ships main pilot over the years as his parents worked to get another freighter for the small business.

In YE40 he was now the full time pilot and captain of the older freighter. His parents with his younger sibling was working on the new freighter and they had just began running more lucrative Cargo run's more on the edge of Yamatai space. It was during one of these Cargo runs that the small family business would have it's greatest test, it was attacked by Kuvexian forces that attempted to destroy the two freigthers.

With no weapons to defend them selfs they tried there best to outrun the hostiles. Russ him self though in the larger ship tried to protect his family by blocking the smaller freigther with his own craft. This would slowly tear apart the old freighter and his home he had known for his entire life was burning away.

Thinking he was done for he prepared for his coming death he said a silent pray. Unknown to him his pray was about to be answered when a Star Army carrier had recieved the distress call and was on its way. As he saw one last of the Kuvexian ships close in he saw it explode and a sight that to this day excites him he saw the distinct silhouette of 4 Hayabusa Starfighters pulling away from the wreck.

The combat engagement was quick with the star army fighters quickly driving off the Kuvexian forces and rescuing the stranded family. It was this moment that Russ knew he wanted to be a pilot for star army and protect fellow spacers from the Kuvexian threat.

Despite some protest's from his parent he would enlist with the Star Army and begin training at the capital to be a pilot. His time there would be very beneficial not only would he be living planet side for the first time but he would interact with more people other then those crew mates.

During the course of training his instructors would note a few things about the young pilot. He was a natural pilot and had a mechanical known how that seemed to make him bound with the flight deck crew. On the switch side though he seemed to have issues with hand to hand combat and newer computer systems unless it was on a void craft.

Finishing training he would go on to complete certification training in a few craft before deployment.From here he was rated to fly the Ke-T8 “Kuma”, Ke-V6-2A “Hayabusa II”, Ke-V9 “Nodachi” Assault Fighter and lastly the Ke-V6-1D “Hayabusa”.
