- Edited the description of Tanis Richards:
<p>TanisRichards was born on May 19th, 4051 in Jerhattan--Jersey Side. At age 12 both of her parents were killed in an accident and she moved to High Terra to live with an aunt. In 4070, at earliest age possible, Tanis Richards enlisted in the TSF.<p>TheTerran Space Force had recently merged all divisions into one Unified System. Tanis entered flight school and recieved her wings for flying low-v patrol craft. She did well, and after spending several stints as primary navigator on stellar cruisers, she opted for OCS and gained her Lieutenant rank.<p>In4059 the Corps had an excess of low ranking officers, but there was a shortage in the Regulars, so Tanis was shifted there. She became the CO of the 3 platoon in Alpha Company of the 742nd ODT (orbital drop troops). After three years she was promoted to Commander (the rank of captain having been removed under the Armed Forces Unified System) and placed in charge of Bravo Company of the 495th ODT.<p>Thereshe served with honor for a period of ten years before (in 4072) she was again promoted to Major. After serving in several positions throughout the InnerSol battalions, Tanis requested transfer into MICI (Military Intelligence and Counterinsurgency). This was around the time that solar purists were increasing their actions, largely due to the purchase of Mercury by the Jovian Combine and its subsequent move to Jovian orbit.<p>Tanisreported that she felt her talents would be an asset to the MICI and had a distinguished career, being promoted to Lieutenant Colonel in 4107. She recieved dozens of medals for valor and bravery and gained a large following of units and commanders who routinely requested her assistence in their operations.<p>In4116 the Incedent at Toro caused Lieutenant Colonel Tanis Richards to be brought up on charges and court martialed. She was deemed guilty by reason of gross negligence and improper conduct and was demoted to Major. The media refered to her as the Butcher of Toro during the proceedings, a moniker which followed Tanis for some time.<p>Afterher demotion, Major Tanis Richards was given less important missions, often well below her abilities. The military seemed to be attempting to force her out, but Tanis had always wanted to be TSF and could not imagine what else she would do with her life.<p>Thatis, until the GSS Intrepid offered open applications for any TSF, MSF, or JSF officers of senior rank. Tanis applied for a berth on the GSS Intrepid and had her request granted in 4122.
