History
Zethra grew up in Cincinnati on Earth. He was the first born of Robert and Janette. Robert was a Starfleet Recruiter and his mom taught at a small private university. When he was 14, they moved to San Francisco as both parents were hired on at StarFleet Academy. His father went to work for the Administrative Department and his mother was a teacher in the Counciling Department.

With both parents in StarFleet, it was a given that Zethra would attend. When he reached of age, he was accepted into the Academy, where he quickly took interest in the Marines. This brought many debates and arguements with his father, who has wanted him to be a doctor. Many were the fights they had while his younger brother and sister watched on. His mom was unable to make either side see reason.

To rebel against his father's oppressive nature, Zethra began to act out in the way of jokes and pranks. Anything that was dared, he did. This eventually led to his unofficial record of the most demerits for a single prank. As part of kitchen duty before the Inaugural Officer's Holiday Ball, Zethra replaced the filling and topping on the dessert with whipped toothpaste laced with jalapeno juice. At the end of the dinner, as all the guest ate the dessert, their tongues began to burn from the jalapenos. Downing water, and gargling only made the toothpaste foam out of their mouths. When the medics showed up, all they saw was a room full of officers foaming at the mouth. They called in more medics for the Rabies Epidemic before they realized what had happened. Zethra almost had to repeat the full year again.

After graduating, he was taken in to Raptor Unit, a squad of Marines assigned to the USS Rampart, a Excelsior Refit Class Starship. Their main duty was escort and protection of Away Teams and help with the security of the ship. Discontent with babysitting, as he saw it, he applied for transfer to the Crazy 8's, a unit based off the Sovereign Class Starship, the USS Sabertooth. On the Sabertooth, his marksmanship rated him the level of sniper. He went on a few away missions. During one, the Crazy 8's were attacked by a gang. Outnumbered 4 to 1, the Crazy 8's sought cover in an abandoned warehouse. Shortly into the firefight, the Squad's XO was hit by a phaser blast. Perched high on a ledge, Zethra was able to pinpoint the gang's location and began to take them out one by one. As he did this, he coordinated avenues of attack for the rest of his squad. With him leading, he was able to defeat the gang and retreat back to the ship with only the XO wounded. Shortly after that he was promoted to 1st Lieutenant and given command of the Crazy 8's. Being with the Crazy 8's really sent home the Crazy part of their name. They perform tactics and assaults that others thought suicidal. Zethra spent almost as much time getting his troops out of the brig as he did getting them into battle.

From the Crazy 8's he was transferred to the Revenants, a veteran Company, as their Commanding Officer. Here they were assigned to several different ship and at one point was stationed on the USS Enterprise, though it was only for 6 days.

All the while, Zethra grew more and more adept at leadership and training. His teams were the best trained among their peers and it started getting noticed. His groups were specifically chosen for the more difficult missions. In several he lost friends and comrades and mourned their loss.

It was at this point that Zethra really started to define his values. A Captain Montgomery of the 115th Task Force ordered Colonel Kaine's troops to hold Coridan against a Dominion Task Force. Montgomery hadn't done his job of protecting the planet and now want to throw the 3rd Battalion at the problem. Seeing that the 3rd Battaltion would be outnumbered 60 to one with no air or space support, Zethra declined. He was tossed into the brig for failure to follow orders. Montgomery sent down the 3rd Battalion and they took severe losses and couldn't hold the planet. An inquiry into the matter had Captain Montgomery demoted and brought up on charges and Kaine was cleared, though most of his men were dead or wounded. He spent the better part of 2 years rebuilding the 3rd Battalion.

Then he left the 3rd Battalion to take over as Marine Commanding Officer for Starbase Bravo. Since arriving at SBB, he has been promoted to the rank of Major and has married Lilly Shannon who has a 5 year old daughter, Calle. From there, he was transferred to the USS Adarga as XO, but that only lasted a year.  Now, strangely, he was being transferred to the USS Redemption as 2nd officer, a move that he sees as a demotion, even though the ship is more widely known.
