Nathiuz (/næ θi ʌz/) Silbermanner (born Year -5, Day 217) is a Corellian male from Coronet City, Corellia. He is currently serving as a Recruit in the Imperial Academy.
|Corellia - Nathiuz's birthplace.|
Nathiuz was born to a middle-class family in Corellia's capital, Coronet City. His father, Cyern, had worked for CorSec while raising his growing family, including five years in their Tactical Response Team. Growing up, Nathiuz wanted to become a member of CorSec, much as his father and grandfather had. However, Nathiuz's father discouraged him from doing so throughout his formative years, suggesting he pursue academics instead.
An outspoken child, Nathiuz was always asking questions about why things were the way they were. Due to this, he was pushed towards two things, philosophy and history. To him, those subjects gave answers which lead to more questions, and so on. In his late teens, his teachers steered him towards attending Corellia University, much to the relief of his father. Here he was able to dedicate himself to the study of what he found most interesting. His two interests steered him towards studying politics.
Nathiuz's brother, Kandar was generally more rambunctious than Nathiuz was. There was question as to if Cyern was his father, as Kandar looked little like him. Additionally, Kandar was taller, wider, and had a much larger build than either Nathiuz or Cyern. Kandar was more the type to enjoy a little too much at the cantina and get into fistfights with and on behalf of his friends. Kandar went missing in Y15, deciding that he would rather live among people "more to his liking" rather than all of the "uptight" people the Empire brought to Corellia. When asked why he would be leaving, Kandar replied with "All of this shit might be fine with you, but not for me."

Aari took after her mother, Jalaila. Warm and sweet growing up, Nathiuz much preferred the company of, and looking after his little sister to that of his rowdy younger brother. The two were inseparable growing up. The two preferred to confide in each other when things went sideways. When one got in trouble, the other would sometimes take the blame, depending on who had decided their parent's rules were just a little too strict at that point in time. When Nathiuz debated about attending University, Aari encouraged him to apply.
Many of his more Republican classmates grumbled about the Empire from time to time in discussion. However, Nathiuz staunchly disagreed with them. This was a stance that he held when he wrote his dissertation on the inefficiencies of the Republic political system and how it promoted galactic factionalism. One of his professors quipped, somewhat sarcastically that Nathiuz would make a fine Imperial citizen. This pushed him to leave the University and instead look for a home in Imperial service, starting at the Academy. Aari was considerably upset when he left, wanting to come along with him. Though he still wants to bring her along to where he would be stationed, he's not quite sure if or when that might be. Maybe he'll be able to someday.
Under the direction of Training Officer Faraday Euler, Nathiuz learned the basics of what it meant to be in service to the Empire. While he studied, he became infatuated with the idea of serving in the Imperial Navy as a pilot in a bomber squadron for the Starfighter Corps. However, at the same time, he was drawn to the idea of serving in Regional Government, where his study in politics might serve him better. In the end, he would be willing to go where the Empire needed him. He just hoped it wasn't Industry.
Following graduation, Nathiuz was directed to the Army. This was a move he was largely displeased with, as it was only slightly better than Industry. Nathiuz had grown out his facial hair considerably during his time in an Armor Battalion. He's been seen drinking and smoking more since joining his unit.

Personality & Traits
Aside from the nearly standard-issue of being addicted to coffee, he enjoyed a good drink, and the occasional cigarra. Though his political views are things he takes a firm stance on, he is generally pretty easy going and positive. Nathiuz is homesick for Corellia at times, as well as for his younger sister. He keeps a picture of Aari with him and in times of hardship, has been known to look at it for encouragement to keep going. Sometimes it seems he looks at it a little longer than he ought to after he's had a few drinks...
