- Combat Function: Command level soldier, able to command on the ground or in space.
Strabo is at his best when commanding a squad, or on the command deck of a starship, locations where it is hard for him to abandon his post to get close to the fighting, as he is either already in the thick of it, or far from the action. He is a capable leader, but has a bad habit of going to where the fighting is thickest, even when it is not required of him.
- Experienced fighter with pistol and blade.
- Decorated commander, much experience leading ground troops and fleets.
- Unorthodox style of fighting and commanding makes him difficult for others to work with.
- Known to put his life at risk, can be irresponsible with command duties
Recruited by Kaine Australis as the very first new member to Clan Australis, they met in a bar, where Strabo was drinking up a storm. Then General Kaine sat down, asked what the problem was, and found out Strabo had nothing do to. Kaine adopted the drunk on the spot and told him he'd never ever have that problem again. The two drunks got more drunk, embraced, and began their lives together, never once looking back.
Strabo quickly earned the nickname "Kriffing Strabo" from Admiral Auriana Australis, being the two are polar opposites in almost every way. The Chiss Admiral is cool calm and classy, Strabo is big, bold, and brassy. Because he was the first being in history to get Auriana to actually swear, he is now known to the entire Clan as "Kriffing" Strabo.
He is beloved by his troops and by his superiors though, as he never shirks in his duty to the clan, to the vode, and to the job at hand. His personal habits do leave a lot to be desired, however his professionalism when on duty is sufficient enough not to attract official sanction. The nickname is enough. Strabo, whether fighting, fixing, drinking, or driving his friends and enemies insane; does not kneel.
