Dane Ramiro was born 23 years ago to Tiberius and Diana Ramiro on Gemenon. His parents, both avid pyramid fans employed by the Kobol colleges, raised him in a highly religious household. Taught to revere the Lords of Kobol from an early age, he was given access to pursue nearly any career that he'd wished from inside of his well-to-do home. His studies were good, and his athletics were even better. Good enough to make one of his high school's pyramid teams, it was through the camaraderie he'd found in his teammates that his first interest in the military was spawned. Most of his teammates were bound to manual labor jobs and had decided to join the Colonial Marines after school to do their part. Dane sat with a recruiter for many hours before deciding that he could appease his parents by promising to finish college after his tour of duty. His parents were deeply religious, but couldn't deny that even the Lords of Kobol honored the warriors that protected the people.

Given his parent's blessing, he entered active duty at the late age of twenty after a brief stint of assisting at the college. Enrolled, he made contact with his friends before boot camp to find that they'd entered duty as riflemen. However, it was Dane's amazing scores on the range that gave him a one way ticket to sniper school. From the age of twenty to twenty-one, he performed MP duty and training at the sniper academy before being assigned to a Caprica garrison. Largely being on standby for the rest of the next year while assisting with MP duty there as well, he received transfer papers to Battlestar Genesis and is just now reporting for duty.

Psych Profile

Deeply religious like many of the colonists at Gemenon, Dane Ramiro has a form of spiritual willpower that holds him together despite stress and anxiety. Never one to assume that life is unfair, he views his every day in service to the Lords of Kobol as a warrior to protect the people. As Apollo and Ares are hunters and warriors, so is he. He exhibits the typical views and practices of a practicing member of the faith, complete with regular service and prayer each morning. His charmed upbringing in his moderate household has led him to be a bit of an idealist, finding that there is good and hope in many things that come his way. However, his resolve has been untested by combat. It is unforseen as to how he will psychologically react to battlefield trauma, but in my assesment his armor of faith would also protect him then as well. He is good with his peers and does not press his beliefs upon others.

He takes a deep responsibility to orders and rarely drinks. He refuses to inhale recreational cigars and cigarettes into his bloodstream purely for the circulatory needs of a sniper's bloodstream. Through his service up until transfer from Caprica, he has no demerits in this service jacket for disobedience. To be quite honest, he would have made one hell of a Chaplain.

OOC Trivia

- The actor/character likeness for Ramiro is Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who played Master Sergeant Gary Gordon in "Blackhawk Down".
