William “Hestio” Aylesford
Newly graduated with an advanced degree in plasmatic engineering from the Strategic Solar Alliance Reserve Officers' Training Corps with a shiny gold ensign’s bar. My father was in the SSA, and was part of several expeditions to the Oort cloud where he lost his life. It was with this in mind that I had to join the Navy and serve in his honor.
That was all before I meet the most beautiful girl in the system. I don’t know if it was love at first sight, but there sure was an attraction and the more we spent time together the more I knew she was the one for me.
With graduation coming, I knew that I would be called on to take up my tour of active duty, and the thought of leaving her behind was more than I could stand. So just before it was time to leave school at a dinner I asked her to marry me.
