Jan is a typical human, of medium height and build. His greying-brown hair is kept close-cropped, and he has an Imperial regulation mustache which has gone grey. His uniform is always immaculate, though there is a spot where the since-removed Imperial insignia is less faded than the rest of the outfit.
Jan likes to lead by example, having found that his men were more likely to follow him when they knew he was in the thick of things with them. He makes a point of knowing each of his subordinates, and does his best to apply everything he learned in the Academy towards being the best leader he can. Taking care of the men he leads is as important to him as being in a position of leadership.
Jan Brenko was only a teenager when the Empire came to Ukio, but the sudden appearance of a squadron of Star Destroyers changed his life forever. Jan was a farmer's son, destined to be a farmer himself. The prospect help no appeal for Jan, who had always dreamed of bigger and better things. To Jan those Star Destroyers were the very incarnation of bigger and better things.
Jan joined the Imperial Navy, and worked his way up through the ranks to command the gun batteries aboard the Lancer-class frigate Cascade, but there his advancement stopped. Jan had earned the enmity of the admiral in charge of his sector by challenging conventional wisdom on the best use of anti-starfighter starships, and the breach of etiquette cost him dearly. Jan was left to stagnate as the weapons officer on the Cascade, while colleague after colleague went on to receive commands of their own.
In desperation, Jan requested a transfer to the Far Orbit in the hopes of escaping the admiral's ire. His request was granted, but the admiral's petty revenge followed him to his new post. Captain Kenit, a close friend of the admiral, made sure that Jan's life was a difficult one. Jan did his best to bear it, but when Commander Vedij approached him to test the waters of mutiny, Jan didn't need to think twice.
