Character Sheet for Shigeto Terryn
Wolf, suspected jackal parent
Captain Shigeto Terryn was born to Tau Cetan nobility before the system was annexed into the Federation. However, his markings indicated a somewhat less than pure heritage and after his Traditionalist family lost the Unification War they sent him to the King's court as a "disposable" hostage.
There, he came into contact with envoys from the New Pallas Republic and witnessed some of the negotiations that led to the formation of the Federation. When he heard about the data traders bringing art and technologies from one system to another he took the chance to leave his homeworld behind.
Eventually, he worked up enough to purchase his own ship, the Defiant, and went into business along the expanding frontiers of the Federation.
Most of his immediate family from before annexation are long dead, lacking Pallene microbot rejuvenation, though branches of House Terryn may be scattered throughout known space.
He has an off-and-on relationship with his XO, Gudrun Korba, and the Federation's observer on his ship, Jarlin Fairhold de Argentum, about two dozen children between them and a half dozen other lovers he's had over the last half-millennium.
A tan wolf, though with the black cape more commonly associated with a black-backed jackal.
Recently he's taken to wearing somewhat "old-fashioned' looking clothing that was becoming common on his homeworld when he left.
His trenchcoat is loaded with sensors and micro-processors that are linked to his brain implant.
Like most Federation citizens Terryn has a microbot hive replacing his spleen, which maintains his body at peak condition and heals trauma, and a brain implant with AR and VR. He also had his skeleton reinforced with titanium.
