Post War Service/Employment
Mycol was born on Newhall to Commander Douglass Reamer and Dr. Karen Reamer. He is the only child, and grew up the typical Military Brat. He never really wanted for anything. His Father having high rank in the Military, and his mother being a doctor he had plenty of food, good education, and plenty of friends. Compared to the rim and even some on the Core Worlds, he had a good life.
When War broken out in 2506 he fell into line with all the Hype. He believed all the propoganda posters, and when he finished schooling in 2508 he immediately enlisted. His father pulled strings to get him into the Officers Academy, but he refused. Wanting to earn his way on his own shoulders. the Commander respected that but still passed papers down through the ranks promoting him to a Sergeant. Mycol learned the trade of war at Boot Camp along with everyone else and when he came out, he was a full fledged Tanker of the 15th Tactical Armored Corp of the 7th Armored Cavalry.
He fought like a wild man to protect the men of his squad earning him three medals and a bullet wound. He turned down every offer from his Father to go to OCS and leave the life of a soldier on the front line. And there were many. One of the Soldiers he met in his unit was a young woman by the name of Melissa Day. The two became fast friends, and eventually lovers. They were wed and given leave.
Melissa became pregnant during the honey moon, a happy accident as Mycol called it, and was transfered to a light duty station. Meanwhile Mycol continued to fight in the war with the 15th. When the child was born, Mycol was given leave again and the child was named David Ryan Reamer. Relictantly Mycol returned to the war, and continued to serve the Alliance with distinction.
Toward the end of the war, just after David's first birthday, a squadron of Independant Fighters snuck past Alliance lines and atacked the base where Melissa was performing light duty. There were no survivors. This devastated the young Mycol. He was given Leave which he took to bury his family, but returned early despite pleas form his Parents to take some time for himself. Instead he threw himself back into the war, determined to end it.
The war ended just one month later. He continued his term of service and was honorably discharged in April of 2512. He went to school and chose the first thing that his finger touched for instruction. An Engine. He studied hard ignoring the outside world except for reclessly flirting with women, and learned his trade as best he could. A friend in his classes noticed the pain in the young man's eyes and took him with him to some Martial Arts training.
It was through this instruction that Mycol learned to put the war behind him. The Independant Soldiers who killed his family were jsut following orders. The Alliance had punished those responsible, the Leaders at war's end. He moved on. He studied, he learned, he enjoyed the presence of women, but never again let anyone get close to his heart. He just couldn't bring himself to do it.
After he graduated from College, he took odd jobs on Persephone but he found himself always looking up. Until one day he quit his current job and went for a walk. Finding a posting for an opening as a Mechanic on the Valiant. He took the Job. Where he is now.
