Biography

Brief

Tychon Armedes is the product of long-standing Caprican military tradition, a Fleet Academy-trained officer and an able pilot. Unlike the political trend-setters of his Colonial and familial stock, however, he is a fairly private person and not particularly outgoing, business-like in his duties and somewhat aloof. He considered his original transfer to Genesis a punishment assignment, a second-rate Battlestar guarding an obscure space station. Unlike most pilots of his age, trained in the peace of the Armistice period, Tychon saw actual combat as part of an anti-terrorist task force deployed to Sagittaron, making him a virtual combat veteran at the time of the attacks. Since then, he has reacted with (perhaps false) stoicism, insisting that this what he and every one of his fellow pilots have been trained for.

Tychon Armedes was killed in action on 79 ACH during the raid on Visser Base. During the engagement, he was picked up by multiple raiders, taking two volleys to the cockpit, the latter of which shattered the enclosure. It is unclear if he survived the depressurization, but ejection failed, and his out of control Viper was destroyed moments later by a heavy raider.

Pre IC History

Family & Childhood

Tychon was born into an elite Caprican family boasting a long military and political legacy. His father served in the military before retiring into politics, while his grandfather was a fairly prominent admiral. An only child, he was fairly spoiled by his parents, and led a privileged life.

Education

Tychon attended a sequence of top-ranked, private schools on Caprica before entering the Fleet Academy. He generally did well in school (and in school sports), but truly excelled once he joined the pilot candidate program.

Military Service

Tychon's service record is quite good, including several commendations for performance. However, evaluations on his leadership and secondary officer skills have been unremarkable.

Previous assignments:

  • Picon fleet headquarters, reserve fleet
  • Colonial Navy Anti-Terrorism Task Force, Sagittaron
  • Battlestar Mercury
  • Battlestar Genesis
