The Martial Pioneers
    Mars grew up in conservative sector of the Loia Military Community. She studied the finest arts of war and fighting, strategy and combat. Her father was an officer, decorated in service many times; her mother also a skilled warrior, though in the field of aviation. Throughout her youth, Mars traveled to every point of Loia, and many places across the LUP. She is passionate in many respects (as I'm sure her numerous lovers in the LUP would testify), especially in matters close to her heart; Saul, her people, her causes. Mars has trouble believing in the higher powers that Kryssians find themselves so ingrained with. She met Saul in Kryss, working on her graduate degree at a college thriving with interesting new people (which was the opposite of the staunchy old-fashioned military academy she'd attended until this point). In many ways Mars' race is different, culturally, from the others as the female is typically the "dominant" member of the union, taking her mother's family name to be the shared family name of both parties.
    Saul was born to a single mother on Loia and raised in a house with his abandoned cousin, Sheirl. His mother, Rora, was a fond, doting woman and she taught him the "New-Age" type skills such as meditation that would in the future be put to use in the creation & defense of his planet, Mars. Saul learned most of his fighting skills from Mars, whom he met as he studied philosophy at Kryss University. He is a peaceful, honorable man and prefers to do no harm to anyone or thing (though when out). Saul believes in a higher power, one or many he is not certain, but he knows in his heart that Mars and he was destined to be, created for each other by this power and that nothing will ever separate them. This arguement is the only one that sways Mars into agreement.

........."T'so sate rhodan. T'so sate rhodan. T'so sate Lopansi!" (chanted in his native tongue this calls for a pair (or more if he repeats the phrase) of flaming spheres to consume the enemy. When the rhodan is changed to ghoran the attack changes to icey cages).
