Scout Commander Sir
     Aiden Radetsky

Here is a brief look at Sir Aiden's history.

Aiden      Scout Commander Sir Aiden Radetsky is the ship's Chief Pilot.  He hands that duty off to Admiral Sir Emkir when he is needed on the ship's sensors.  Outside that, despite being a firm combat asset, Sir Aiden has become known as "Captain Paranoid", a title he may now have to compete with Munarshu Usuker Kam Shamshangi Sidigur to keep.  In battle, Aiden walks behind the others and carries a nasty ranged weapon.  Especially behind Admiral Sir Emkir Meshrumiikiim, after a misfire incident.

Aiden served with the IISS before and in the Fifth Frontier War.  His claim to fame, and the reason Grand Duchess Delphine knighted him, was his decorated role in the battle of Caladbolg.  An epic fight against impossible odds, Sir Aiden is credited with saving his ship and crew despite his wounds.  In a counter to his past, Aiden prefers the quiet moments when he can relax and read, though he does have an interest in the artistically machined hand guns found in tech level 5 to 7 societies.

1978

     Aiden was born to Government Lobbyist and a Singer on a homeworld that qualified as a hazardous environment.  As a result, he is fairly careful with protective procedures.  Having been raised in contact with a lesser race (the Crawni), Aiden developed the negative habit of treating some aliens like second class citizens.  Aiden also has some deeply ingrained negative feelings regarding the megacorp Sternmetals Horizons, LIC, due to their desire to buy the world and perceived activities to damage the world's trade efforts.
