First officer of the USS Triumph, Tiarith Ranicus is an experienced and hardened officer. Known for a sardonic and no-nonsense attitude, she is the consummate perfectionist professional. Unafraid to speak her mind, Ranicus has spent some years as the iron right hand of Captain Jericho, prepared to be disliked and harsh on the crew to ensure discipline is maintained while he inspires loyalty through more warmth. She is the daughter of an Angosian scientist who played a key role in her people’s genetic engineering of soldiers to win the Tarsian War, and has her whole life been plagued with suspicion and rumour that he employed some of his talents in making her perfect, too. While no medical examinations can evidence this suspicion, it has tarnished Ranicus throughout her career as political enemies have wanted her to fail, and every success has been seen as further reason to doubt her. It is for this reason that she owes Fleet Captain Jericho such relentless loyalty: he recruited her when others would not, and has unfailingly trusted her on his bridge and eventually as his first officer.
