Character History

Personal History Robert Schiano grew up in New York City. His childhood was rather normal for a child of such upbringing, with no unusual happenings occurring for most of his first 17 years of life. While he spent a good majority of his time playing sports, and otherwise working out, Robert also spent a good portion of his time in libraries, studying Earth history, mainly the history of Earth wars and how they were ended.

At the age of 18 with the encouragement of his parents Robert enlisted in the Starfleet Marine Corps. He chose the Marines over the fleet because the camaraderie and physicality reminded him of home. During two years of Marine Training Robert showed remarkable skill for managing personnel and improvisation. His piloting skills were surprisingly developed for someone so young with little to no training, and his ability to make his superiors think before they act was the subject of much admiration.

Upon leaving Advanced Training, Private Schiano was assigned to Camp Kalkirk as infantry and Marine pilot. Then Lt Colonel Brian Gentry saw potential in the fresh faced young Private. The two while off duty bonded, and Brian taught Robert much. While on assignment the Lieutenant Colonel was cut off from the rest of the unit. Robert risked his life and with the help of three other Privates affected rescue of the Lt Colonel. Robert was promoted to the rank of Private First Class for his heroism.

Robert was then transferred to serve aboard the USS Tomahawk. This was his first interactions with Starfleet Naval personnel. His CO on the Tomahawk instilled a respect for the Navy, however, he also fostered a rivalry with "fleeters" While on the Tomahawk Robert served as the EVAC specialist for his team and it was here that he excelled. His quick thinking and original ideas saved his unit from more than one tight situation. He was promoted three times during his time on the Tomahawk and when it came time for reassignment he was a Sergeant.

Robert was then assigned to the USS Ticonderoga and this time he was given a Squad of 12 Marines to command. Robert always laughed at the thought the Marines were commanded. His belief was to lead by equality. It was something that his former CO First Lieutenant Patton had taught him. Robert always listened to his Marines and then made a decision that was best for all of them and the success of the mission. It was on the Roga that he began to have the ambition to marry. He had quite a few girlfriends during his service on the Roga. However, most of the women did not want to share him with the corps.

During his time on the Ticonderoga Robert was promoted three more times. With the rank of Master Sergeant Robert had to leave his beloved Roga for Empok Nor in the Trivas System. It was there that he was to meet is new CO First Lieutenant Jack Cunningham to serve as his First Sergeant aboard the USS Firebird.
