In Brief

Jethro Vassler Schofield was born Leonis. His parents, Jackson and Aimee were both kind and loving parents. Jethro was their third and last-child, and their only son. He had two older sisters. All his family are now believed to be deceased.

His childhood was pretty average and almost nothing note-worthy to mentioned as considered in his military records. His grades during what little schooling he got were average, nothing too good, but nothing bad either.

By the time Jethro was 16, both his sisters had already married to good men and moved away from Leonis to other colonies. Jethro was left and charged with taking care of his aging parents.

The family ran a small suppy-store business in a town, not far from where they lived. It was pretty much their life. Just enough to keep them going like. However, it was during this time that something life-changing occurred to young Jethro.

Long story short, a bad incident happened and Jethro was seriously injured. During this incident, he was noticed by a colonial marine offiicer who was on leave and visiting Leonis at the time. One thing lead to another, and Jethro soon found himself studying and training to become a Marine.

When Jethro turned 21, he was posted on a relatively young Valkyrie-class Battlestar named Genesis. At that time, the Genesis would've barely been two or three years old.

During his time in the Marines, Jethro has been posted on no less than 5 Battlestars. Now at age 44, Jethro Vassler Schofield finds himself back on the ship where he started his career. His risen through the marine ranks, and has been a Master Sergeant for a decent 4, almost 5 years now, ever since he was posted back onto Genesis when he turned 40.

He's now nearing his 45th birthday…though he doesn't seem to feel it, much.
