On Year 4012 Day 108 of the Royal Hapan Calendar, Julius was born to proud Parents Inara Estezova and Alistair von Alard. The boy was beautiful and his parents adored him, however the Alard tradition demanded that the Grandparents choose the name of the young boy. A tradition handed down since the times of Alartia. After birth, Julius was allowed only a day with his parents, for them to care for the boy and learned what it meant to be a parent before the Grandparents would take the boy for a week, they would decide after careful consideration a name suitable to the boys class and upbringing and potential for nobility. A strong and powerful name, reminisce of a great leader was chosen. The boy was given the name Julius, after Lord Julius von Alard a great soldier and a fighter, centuries ago during a minor Lorell Conflict.

"The boy, shall be named Julius on this the 116th day of the 4012th year of Hapes"
— Clair von Alard
Julius as of 3 months old

This was the Alard tradition, one that covered all of the Alrd family across of Hapes and Lorell, a wide fraternity gathered for the boy's official naming ceremony, held at Alard hall the family was nervous, this would be when the child would be acepted as an Alard, something all went through and marked with the family crest, this mark is held in high regard as a universal symbol of loyalty and courage to one another. Printed in the same spot for all Alard's its precise location is not known to the general populous.

Julius naming ceremony
"Friends, Family, members of the Elder council, we welcome you to Alard Hall on this the 117th day of the 4012 Hapan Year. We gathered as one community today to join together in welcoming Julius, son of Alistair and Inara into the family, we hope that his life will be fulfilling and that his journey will be his own and in the rites of his forefathers. Today, we mark Julius as one of our own, so that on his travels he will always know who he is, he will always know his heritage and may his soul be ever guarded."
— Minister Frian Alard delivering opening addresses

During a naming ceremony on Lorell, especially in an Alard household was something to behold, sometimes up to tens of thousands of family members and friends gathered to witness the naming and makring of a new child, it was customary that only an Alard may watch the marking of the child, lest their secrets be revealed. This ceremony is held in high regard and if it does not go completely to plan and precision, then the child will not be accepted and branded an outcast. Luckily, Julius` ceremony wen without a hitch and he was accepted as a member of the Family.

Alard Hall

After the ceremony, only the immediate family gathers, at this stage the child is returned to the family now a true Alard and the child's life begins in earnest. The boy is usually showered in gold and silver garments and is made to feel like a king in his first moments as an Alard, it is always hoped that the Child remembers this moment, and see's the lush life he or she is about to lead. To be thankful to all of the congregation. Having a child in the Alard family is definitely a stressful exercise, but one worthwhile in the end.

For the next 3 to 4 years the child is groomed to be perfect, to be beyond that of an ordinary Hapan, to excel at everything he does. So Julius is taught continuously groomed until at 4 years of age, public life and schooling begins.

Age 4

Julius age 4

NAME: Julius von Alard

AGE: 4

LOCATION: Lorell, Hapes Cluster

DATE: Year 4016 D 117

At age 4 the child public life begins, before this the child remains wrapped up with the parents, occasionally seen by the Elders of the family for extra lessons it is now that the family gets to see the child for the first time since the naming ceremony and the marking of the boy. Julius is introduced at a party, exactly 4 years from his naming ceremony. the 117th day of 4016th Hapan Year. The party is grand, however only those bearing the mark of an Alard are permitted to see the boy.

"It's been a long 4 years, but we all remember this day, at least the Parents do, I stand here with pride to see the boy that my baby has grown to become. I can see his future will be great. Hapes will gain a great asset."
— Alistair Alard, when Julius is introduced

Age 4, is the real beginning. In the Alard culture it is believed that at age 4 the gods look down on the child and decide its fate, that at this stage in this life the child will become a solider, or a sculptor or an architect. But no one truly knows, people speculate and wonder and even squabble but no one will quite know the career of the child.

Julius at this age had several outings, once to his Father's Naming Day ceremony, where his father was named Alistair. Julius was running around with his young cousins, when a Unit of Hapan My`til fighters flew in formation overhead, a Hapan Battle Dragon appearing out of hyperspace, in close proximity to Lorell. Julius looked up at the majestic ship, the outlines of weapons, the precision it moved. The Gods had truly looked down and decided the child's fate on this day. But then his father looked down upon the young boy gazing at the cruisers and told Julius, "Son, that life is of great honor. But be wary of the corruption it may bring into your life."

At age 4 Julius had already taken his first steps into a future career, what this would be, what form it would take would still be up to the child. But from age 5 and beyond he would begin to learn just what was expected of him.

Pre-teen years

"Its not our differences or our likenesses that make us strong or weak, its what we say and do, its what we fight for that makes us strong."
— A quote by Commander Elronis, from A History of Hapes

In his pre teen years, Julius learned a lot, political and military etiquette as well as the arts of reading and writing, he could speak fluent in many different languages. Although it wasnt obvious to him, Julius was being bred to be a politician, the constant social lessons about what to and what not to say at various times. This began to bore the boy, nothing entertained him like it used to, the knowledge of alliances of Hapes, the signing of accords and NAP's wore on him. He yearned to know of the Military, a Hapan soldier a a Hapan Fighter, the Galactic Civil War.

Before he even hit his 13th Year Julius was well known across the city, his parents however, continued to distrust the people of Lorell. They got suspicious of their movements, having a son in nobility and the limelight was a difficult thing for them to grasp.


Julius entered the Coruscant University for Advanced Sciences at 18 years if age. Having received excellent education in his home planet. There he learned culture, he learned military tactics, but he learned science. Engineering, to be exact. He attended, doing a Major Degree, in Advanced Engineering. He learned from the best, and the best learned from him. He was a genius, his career, would easily be in ship Production and Prospecting.

"Julius shows excellent skills, his writing is strong and articulate, his words flow easily and fluently, his knowledge of the subject matter is outstanding, he lacks the ability to comprehend other ways of doing things than his own, however great they are, he should learn to look into other ways of learning and engineering, an all around great paper."
— Exert from Public Record, Majors Paper - Julius von Alard - Professor's Comments

Julius exhibited great strength and courage. However as shown he had difficulties with his people skills early, but he graduated and gained his Degree.

Imperial Basic Training

Recruit Julius von Alard [NEW]

As the shuttle came in for a landing you felt a knot in your stomach. It was partly nerves and partly excitement. You had arrived at the Imperial Academy and were on your way to beginning your Imperial career. You glance around at the other new recruits in the shuttle, some appear more nervous than you are.

You disembark the shuttle and soon find yourself with mass of other new recruits. Before you stands the main building of the Imperial Academy. It is a large grey and black pyramid like structure, it's cold surface is illuminated by the first rays of the morning sun. It is not long before you find yourself going through the process of matriculation. You have your old civilian clothes taken away and are given academy issue uniforms, you are assigned a barrack and are put through a series of physical tests. You easily pass the tests and it is not long before you meet your academy instructor.

Your data card told you to report to room 4C in the instructor's hall. After a brief walk up a flight of stairs you find your instructor's class room. The room is a neat and orderly room, There are a few rows of steel desks facing a holoboard that covers an entire wall. On the opposite wall hangs a large Imperial banner. In the back corner is the instructor's desk. It is a large steel desk. The desk has nothing on top of it except for a miniature Imperial and army banner, a small model of an AT-AT, and a data pad. Sitting at the desk is your Academy Instructor. He stands up to great you.

"Welcome recruit, come in and take a seat. I am Army Command Sergeant Santiano Salazar and I will be your instructor during your time here at the academy." He hands you a data pad. "This is yours to keep, in it you will find everything you need to know for now, It has your academy information recorded, It also has contains the course syllabus and some other useful information on it. Remember if you need some help You can always find me in my office here at the Imperial Academy. Well that is all for the moment recruit. Take the rest of the day to familiarize yourself with the Empire, I have uploaded an academy Tutorial to help you out once your academy account is created."

Julius hair neatly sitting on his shoulders thanks the Command Sergeant, rising from his seat Datapad in hand Julius exited his Instructor's officer and entered the well furnished corridoor. Uniform crisp for his firstday on the job. Eyes gleaming in the heavy lighting of the majestic Imperial Academy. Stomach rumbling, Julius did the only thing he could think of and went in search of the mess hall.

"At least at home I knew where the Mess Hall was" Julius commented

Making his way through the winding tunnels, getting lost three or four times, Julius hair now with beads of sweat rolling down and quite worn out, turned a corner into the Mess Hall.

Entering a place of frivolous activity, the wafting aroma of the various foods served made its way methodically to Julius` nostrils. Julius retrieved some food from his homeworld of Lorell and took a seat with a vast array of Recruits. They chatted eagerley, all were clearly of Corellian decent, their uniforms alread worn, buttons undone and their Insignia dirty with food. Julius disgusted left to his room.


You stand in formation with your fellow classmen. Slowly your company marches into the Imperial Academy hall. You find yourself in the Immense hall. Imperial banners hang from everywhere and the room is light by cauldrons that cast the building in a soft yet ominous glow.

"Recruits, congratulations. Today you end one phase of your Imperial career and move onto the next. Your days of hard work,sweat, tears and blood are not over, but are now going to be put to a greater purpose. That purpose is to bring order to a galaxy filled with chaos to bring peace to a galaxy that has known only war. No matter what branch you move on to, remember the comrades you have made here and your shared experiences. Remember what you have learned and what we are fighting for."

After several other speeches and a long while standing at attention the graduation awards are given out. At long last you hear your name being called out.

"Recruit Von Alard please step forward" You step forward, pride filling your heart. "Recruit Von Alard, You have completed all your exams and have done very well. I am proud of you. For graduating from the academy with a score of 90%,I hereby promote you to the rank of [E-2] Crewman." The Command Sergeant then pins your new rank plaque on your uniform. "I also hereby award you the IABG..The Command sergeant takes a small metal box with the ribbon inside and hands it to you. Your instructor then salutes "Best of luck to you in the Imperial Navy Von Alard. Your transfer request to join the Imperial Navy has been forwarded to RADIN. You are dismissed."

Julius turns about heel. Returning into formation with his fellow classmates, some receive honours and they continue to march, each individual insignia gleaming in the sunlight. They continued down the promenade, perfect marching formation, culminating months of agonizing work. Now he would get to fly the ships he once thought he would design and build, how the world had changed, a grand career was now around him.

Imperial Navy


Imperial Academy

Having completed 2 years and 3 months in Imperial Navy service, Julius was appointed the Commandant of the Academy and was charged with completing the reforms to to make a bigger and better academy, his Fleet and his Unit would be sorely missed and even those friends he had in other units were disgruntled and angry at his sudden departure, but it was necessary to ensure that he continue in his service and not simply retire all together. There is conjecture about what particularly caused these feelings, there is conjecture he simply was frustrated with how the Navy was being run, others and the majority believe the retirement of long time friend and FCO Markus Saretti left Julius in such a state he couldn't feel he could go on serving in his capacity.
