|Personal History||Kieran Fredericks was left on the steps of the Temple of Artemis on Aerilon as an infant. He was cared for by the priestesses who ran the temple, but ran away when he was eight. He ended up on the streets of Aries City, struggling to survive and stealing whatever food he could scrape up. One night, while foraging in the supply dump of Aries City Military Airfield, he was caught in the act by Staff Sergeant Alan Fredericks, who took the scrawny kid home to his wife Callandra. They cleaned the kid up and gave him a meal, the first good meal he'd had in years. Originally Alan had planned to turn the boy over to Child Services, but his wife, who was barren, took a shine to him, so they kept him in their home. Eventually they made it official and adopted him. Alan taught his new son how to defend himself, and gave him the structure he hadn't had while growing up. Kieran enlisted in the Marines when he was old enough. After training, he was posted aboard the Battlestar Hermes. His NCOIC and the ship's CO saw some real potential in the young Marine, so both recommended him for OCS. He graduated fourth in his class, and was posted to the Battlestar Artemis as the Junior Operations Officer. After two years, he was sent to the Pegasus under the then-Commander Helena Cain. He received good evaluations from her, as well as a promotion to Lieutenant. From there, he went to Caprica Fleet Command, as an instructor. This assignment got him promoted to Captain a year ahead of time, and a posting to the battlestar Valkyrie as Launch Control Officer. For a year, he performed this vital but tedious duty, until he was transferred to CIC as the ship's Tactical Operations Officer, second only to the XO and CO. He was junior for this position, but tactics was something he was good at, and his CO got him promoted to Major. He was given his first and current command, an aging Firestar called Kronus. The old ship had seen action towards the end of the first Cylon War, and was now relegated to patrolling a barely occupied region of Colonial Space.|
