Biographical Details

Yehudi was born to an old Jewish family on an orbital in the Masada system in 3172.

His early years were unremarkable other than a good level of academic achievement combined with a passion for sports. This lead to his joining the Cadet Defence Force at the age of 13. He quickly became passionate about being a Cadet and lived only for the zero-G simulations the Cadets ran for regular attenders.

Career History

Instead of waiting for his call-up at 18 for compulsory service Yehudi volunteered for the Marines at 17. He passed out as top cadet in his intake on the GF basic training. On completion of Ground Force Training he was posted to the Air Assault Battalion pending psychological evaluation and a transfer to the Xyonist Marine Corps.

During this time he was a passenger on a shuttle that crashed. He survived with minor injuries and carried an unconscious comrade to safety before going back to see who else he could rescue from the wreckage. He was given a Commander's Special Commendation for his coolness in adversity. This also tipped the balance in his entry to the XMC as his psych evaluation had shown him to be a thrill seeker and borderline in suitability for space duty.

On 3190. he transferred to the Marine Corps. He was better at the active parts of the course than the routine elements, although he wasn't top he was in the top third and therefore eligible for the NCO cadre once he'd got some combat experience.

Following normal policy he was posted outside his home quadrant to Q8 on board a DDI . During his 480 days on board the DDI he was involved in two combat missions against pirates, both of which involved marine action (all robots disabled) to finish it off. He was wounded in the second action and transferred to a base hospital in the Quadrant Capital where he spent 93 days recovering. After his release from hospital he was sent on an NCO cadre having applied for it during his time on board ship.

Initially the NCO cadre went well, Sharan was in the top five on his course when it came to the live fire exercise at the half-way point. The exercise was a disaster. Sharan was commanding the platoon (it is normal on the NCO Cadre for the candidates to fill all the command appointments) when a large group of robots was reported on the outer deck of the ship they were assaulting. Sharan ordered his entire platoon to engage with grenades. This was incredibly effective (over 20 grenades were launched). However at the rear of the robots that were spotted were two Directing Staff and a squad of NCO candidates. One of the DS and four candidates were taken down by the grenades, two of them dead, including one of the DS.

The Board of Inquiry found that Sharan had been negligent, but that so also had the DS who hadn’t checked that the platoon were all on the same IFF code, especially since this was a live fire exercise. Sharan was administratively discharged.

Since being kicked out of the XMC for being over zealous Yehudi has wandered around eventually settling in Freeport where he works as a Comms Tech in the local space traffic control centre. He's also a part-time Marine and a bit of a gun nut.

Sometime after 3192 he joined the crew of a pirate ship, his exact exploits are unknown except that around 3200 he set up with some others as the joint owner of a pirate vessel.

Other Information

Honesty and Integrity are words that Yehudi only has a loose grip of the meaning of. He has indulged in the odd spot of breaking and entering (but has never been caught) and knows where he can fence stuff for a good profit. He also sells information to those that are willing to pay.
