Ylvia Skelgard is a young and joyful Kiffar female, she enlisted in the Imperial Army as an officer to serve in the New Order and crush the enemies of the Galactic Empire, but soon found herself invested in managing families company, and as such left the Empire.
Ylvia Skelgard was born on Year -8 Day 132 by the Combine Galactic Time in the northernmost region of Kiffex where with her two siblings and dozens of cousins she had spent most of her life and only few times left her homeworld to visit her uncle Ygremor on Kiffu. Because of her Kiffar clan origins, Ylvia developed an aptitude in hunting and from early childhood went to all Skelgard's gatherings that always started with the ceremonial Grand Hunt in the forests and fields of Kiffex. There clan retainers and family members tried to prove their prowess to each other and to Pegrotis - God of the Hunt. Her clan itself - Clan Skelgard, in which she was born in to, had always been known to foster artisans of various trades. Most notably her father Vizimir Skelgard was a well-known blacksmith and forge always needed helpful hand, where Ylvia was eventually put to work as she reached her teenage years. Long hours and many days there ironing the metals and smelting them in tools and weapons of war, had resulted in Ylvia becoming physically strong and adept in metallurgy. During these teenage years she found inspiration in life through art and as such one of Ylvia’s favorite pastimes was to wander the great wilds and capture the unspeakable beauty of nature on an empty canvas. In her room at Skelheim Greathall where she grew up there is a wall that is covered by her earlier works.
As she reached full adulthood, she became interested in political side of the Galaxy. Even if Kiffex was a neutral planet, her clan was always considered pro-Imperial, both from rhetoric's against the New Republic that were thrown out by her father to the clan's overall given encouragement for its members to join the Galactic Empire. This made Ylvia to grow up in atmosphere that harbored warm sentiment towards the New Order, and as such when she reached twenty-six years, she signed up for the service in the Empire and joined in the Imperial Academy to serve faithfully to the Imperial cause and make her clan proud.
|Ylvia arriving at the bustling and prosperous Imperial world of Prakith. The first world outside Azurbani system that she had ever visited and also the starting point of her Imperial service.|
Twenty-six year old Kiffar arrived at the Prakith Imperial Academy in her personal Starwind-class Pleasure Yacht called Crimson Rose, that she was given by her father to celebrate the occasion of being accepted and starting her career in the service of the Empire. The place to Ylvia was a sharp contrast to her every day life on Kiffex, as there she grew up in an secluded clan community and rarely saw alien species or was exposed to grander places than few larger settlements on Kiffex, but at the academy there were dozens of recruits, droids, Training Officers and even aliens she had never seen or heard about, all bustling about and paying no attention to her. Ylvia was soon assigned to an brilliant Training Officer - Elaine von Veritrax, under whose guidance she took first steps in the service of the Galactic Empire.
In few weeks of her time in the Imperial Academy, Ylvia was given her first command of two Stormtrooper recruits: Alsten Virai and Astrid Cote, with whom she was tasked to investigate disturbance in an energy supply in the adjacent district of Prakith. There the small fireteam was ambushed by squads of battledroids who were under the command of two criminal cartel Jawas. Using her battle proves and quick instinct Ylvia with her team was able to overcome the assailants and capture the culprits, delivering them to the hands of the Imperial authority. With the first successful assignment as an Imperial officer under her belt, Ylvia soon graduated the Imperial Academy with Honors and was assigned to serve in Imperial Army as Second Lieutenant.
In first weeks of service within the Imperial Army as Second Lieutenant, Ylvia was assigned to serve on a ice world of [CLASSIFIED], where not only the dropping temperature and cold weather could kill you, but other more dangerous things: the predatory wildlife that had adapted to these conditions as well as desperate elements of the society that looked towards banditry and smuggling as means of survival. Each night and day Ylvia and her troops battled for their lives as they maintained the Imperial order in these savage ice wastelands.

As being part of an well off Kiffar clan, Ylvia was able to acquire few selected items for her own need or pleasure.
Dawnager is a Crusader-class Corvette and current flagship of Ylvia.
Crimson Rose is an Starwind-class Pleasure Yacht and is currently owned by Ylvia Skelgard. The ship was gifted to Ylvia by her father Vizimir Skelgard upon her acceptance within Imperial Academy. The Yacht itself is outfitted with large lounge and a spacious bedroom, as well as a library containing many books and data archives on life outside Azurbani system and galaxy at large. There is also a small art-studio and a starport area for Ylvia to use and gaze outside to the stars and paint the beauty of universe.
