Ivan Edo was loyal to the Empire. He had never questioned the Imperial propaganda and had little stomach for politics. Besides, he was more than appreciative of the full scholarship that the Imperial Navy provided for his studies at the Dodroni School of Engineering (University of Byblos), where he studied Metallurgy and Energy Physics. Upon completion, per the terms of his scholarship, Ivan enlisted in the Navy to serve on anti-piracy frigate The Far Orbit
, where he served as a Junior Engineer, reporting to Chief Engineering Officer Orav Tokan. Ivan was assigned to manage the hyperdrive and ensure that it remained in proper working order. Although it was marginally related to his studies, Ivan was by no means the most talented mechanic on board.
At the time, the crew was led by Captain Vocis Kenit. Ivan was impressed by the Captain's leadership, and was as loyal to him as any other member of the crew. Little did Ivan know that one of Kenit's most trusted men, Commander Dhas Vedij, was orchestrating a mutiny, and that his own mentor, Officer Tokan, was a ringleader in the operation. Luckily, Tokan managed to keep Ivan out of the way during the mutiny. While the rest of the loyalists were rounded up and set adrift, Ivan was busy running diagnostics on the backup hyperdrive. By the time he had finished his tests, he discovered that half the crew was gone and the ship was under the command of Vedij. Although this was certainly not a move that Ivan would have supported, he knew enough to keep his mouth shut.
Now, Junior Engineering Officer Edo serves his new crew loyally, thankful for the resources he has been provided and dedicated to ensuring that he does not end up like Kenit or the rest of the loyalists. Recognizing that Ivan is more of a scientist than a true engineer, Chief Engineer Tokan has permitted Ivan to set up a small laboratory to perform basic analysis and experiments. Due to his success in using his research to optimize the energy output of the sublight engines, Tokan has promoted Ivan to the role of Scientific Officer and has pushed Ivan to focus his efforts in the lab rather than the engine room. Recently, Ivan has also begun to work with Surgeon Lieutenant Bria Tannen to develop and optimize cybernetic technology for the crew.
Ivan has always been fascinated by energy manipulation, and particularly the hypermatter ignition process. Although hypermatter has been used to expedite interstellar travel for a millennia, Ivan suspects that it could have other uses. He is dedicated to studying the excitation of hypermatter and to the possibility of using hypermatter as a fuel source for other projects.
Ivan is obsessive about the pursuit of knowledge, and is often irritated when more pressing issues impede his research.
Ivan's studies were paid in full by the Imperial Navy. As a requirement of his scholarship he had to serve 10 years in the Navy. He would be quite surprised if his time serving the traitorous crew of Captain Vedij will count in that aim. He can only hope that his failure to fulfill his duty will not result in his assets being frozen or his debt being passed on to the ever-vigilant Banking Clan.
