[edit] Bio

[edit] Appearance

Drac stands about six feet tall, and is physically fit by the standards of the Mon Calamari. His skin is an unusual color for a member of his species, a dark mottled blue that verges on black. Combined with his orange eyes, this makes for a striking appearance. His primary distinguishing feature is a white birthmark that runs in a slash from his left jaw, up through his eyelid, and ends near the top of his head. This is a trait shared by all the male members of his family, though Drac is the only one to combine it with a unique skin color. His birthmark is also bisected by a scar that runs perpendicular to it, about two thirds of the way up the birthmark. This scar, and the starburst shaped scar on the front of his left shoulder, are souvenirs of blaster wounds that went a little too long without bacta treatment.

One thing that causes Drac to stand out from many of the other officers of the Vast Imperial Navy is that he is rarely, if ever, seen without his personal weapons. A longstanding habit due to the ground operations he's found himself in over the years, his favorite blaster and combat knives are a constant presence on his person just in case he needs them. He typically carries the DC-15s blaster pistol on his right hip, a combat knife in one boot, and two more combat knives in a wrist sheath under his uniform cuff.

[edit] Personality

There are two aspects that really characterize Drac. The first is his loyalty which, once earned, is absolute. Some have even noted that he is "loyal to a fault." This may well be true, since he has little compunction about taking a wound meant for a friend. The second thing that truly defines him is his moral compass, a very strong knowledge of what’s right and wrong that may be the only thing that can override his loyalty.

Having seen several years of combat duty, Drac has felt the effects of war. Wounds have caused suffering, as have the deaths of friends and allies. Guilt lies heavy in him at times, both for the deaths of soldiers under his command and for the deaths of innocents who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Drac is very aware of the blood, innocent and guilty, on his hands. All of that and more has combined to bring a gradual change in his personality and interactions with those around him. When off duty he's quieter, and even more serious than in the past. While still basically a friendly person, he knows all too well that many of the men and women he meets will soon be dead. Like many veteran soldiers, he can be slow to open up to new recruits. But when he does, the warmth of his nature shines through.

All in all, Drac is pretty typical of a Naval officer: balanced, staid, and calmly logical. He knows his duties and fulfills them to the best of his ability. And while he acknowledges the deaths he causes, he knows the cause he serves is important. Deaths must be minimized, but for peace and stability to return to the galaxy some people must die. If he becomes one of those, he would be happy with the knowledge that his life and death had meaning.

[edit] History

Dracule Mihawk joined the Vast Empire out of appreciation for its moral and ethical standards, as it was the only significant faction in the war-torn galaxy that had held itself above the use of biological warfare. Back home on Dac he’d been expected to work in government, like his father, or to possibly end up in law enforcement or, later, the rebel military. The Rebellion’s biological attacks ended all of that, though, and he left to pursue his own ideals and the goal of being a starfighter pilot.

His career since joining the Vast Imperial Navy has gone even better than he could ever have expected, especially for a Mon Calamari. He quickly rose to prominence as one of the best starfighter pilots in the Navy, and rose relatively quickly to the level of squadron commander. Events conspired, however, to end his time in a cockpit in favor of commanding a ship from its bridge. If anything, this new role suited him even better. His daring tactics and clear effectiveness earned him promotions, and when attrition and turnover resulted in a need for fresh officers at the highest levels of the Navy he was well positioned to ride the wave of opportunity.

Currently, and for the last couple of years, Drac commands a significant portion of the Vast Imperial Fleet from the bridge of the Halcyon Warrior a Mark II Imperial Star Destroyer. He has held multiple roles in the Naval High Command, and currently serves as the Chief of Naval Warfare.
