Bio:

"It could be said that the mind of the dark and brooding Abraxes is composed of three basic drives : Ambition, Malice, and possessing a temper hot enough to rekindle a fusion reactor."~ An Unknown crewmember who served with him.

Abraxes Jerimiah Rancor was born upon the world of Tanaab. Forced to live in a world where one always had to be formal and proper had granted his mannerisms a sense of detachment when viewed by others. Certain piques of righteous anger and a scathing wit he readily applies to those who deserve it are a benchmark of his demeanor sometimes causing him to enter into trouble where he might become unsettled enough to rant incessantly..


This penchant for trouble sometimes comes across as "haughty" to his subordinates as he genuinely has to make an effort in order to keep their regard. If it wasn't for his focused obsession to continue to improve his skills he would have been tossed out of the Imperial Star Forces long before he had ever joined.

For instance: other colorful occurrences mark his career. At age twenty he left his large family's farm to take up a position as a shuttle pilot and corporate officer at the spaceport of Pandath. Doing everything and anything in order to further his studies as he relentlessly assisted in the defense of the planet which consistently threatened his homeworld's safety.
His employer's all described him as a hard worker, who put in long hours and conscientiously scrutinized almost every detail of a ship, all in order to know "the ins and outs" of what he was flying on.

He assisted several times on ships as a crewman during pirate raids, moving up the ladder of responsibility. From a deckhand to a corporate officer. Above all else, during this time he was described as a man who dominated his enemies through the use of his two saving graces: his intelligence, and his manners. In one special instance he rebelled against his homeworld's stiff conventions against talking to the enemy by taking the liberty of action upon himself. He used his knack of getting people to capitulate to his demands in order to convince an invading pirate fighter to veer off from its attack run upon Tanaab's orbital station. A station that was designed for some of the largest freighters in existence. His verbal oratory over the comlink tricked the pirate into believing that several altered tractors beams were about to be used to tear his ship apart as he pointed out the flaws in the pirate's piloting skills. In short: he bluffed.

One should also note that Abraxes has never struck out at anyone or been involved in a physical altercation where he has actually been forced to kill someone, even though he certainly has the capability to defend himself after years of discipline against pirates. He always went for disabling or capture instead. During his days at the Academy when he had a problem with another recruit who attempted to repeatedly hit him he merely did his best to get out of the way. All the while yelling epithets at his aggressor, whilst simultaneously using his words to erode the other cadet's confidence thus eroding the ability of the other man to fight.

But all of his senior officers will state that he has never used his scathing wit against anyone who did not attack another first, almost reserving the right to unleash the darkest part of his personality upon those that really deserved it.


This natural ability to channel his cruelty towards productive ends has combined with a natural ability for engaging in verbal jujitsu, allows Rancor to discern many situations. Unfortunately with his 'attitude' of formality it had almost assuredly delivered him to an early court martial save for the intervention of his superiors. They saved him only because they realized that the only thing better than his test scores for tactical command was his ability to make another person give up before a fight had even begun. It was for this reason it was decided that he should be transferred into the position of a communications officer in an attempt to salvage the good qualities that exist within him while reconditioning the bad.

During the last weeks of training they had actually seen some good results of their efforts : Rancor had actually spurred and motivated a crew on a training mission to deal with an unplanned reactor leak. Holographic records of the incident actually show him shouting encouragement to others in the engineering section as they maneuvered a lead capstone over the affected area while everyone worked in Hazard suits. This was the final grain of sand on the scales that tipped the favor of the Star Forces to keep him in their ranks instead of kicking him to the curb.

The officer who reassigned him to be a ship's system officer only said this, "It's going to be a long and hard struggle for Ensign Rancor, he sometimes lets his temper make him act like a bull in a china shop. It will take much effort and conditioning on his senior officer's parts in order to turn him into a weapon that may be used against the Federation's enemies. However, if that day ever comes about I do not believe I would ever wish to be on the opposing side of the battlefront from him."

Creator's note: I did not want to bring this char forward so soon but it was the only way I could think of to make some sense regarding a sm plot in progress. I probably won't be using this char outside of a few ideas in lounge for a few months.
