Personality and Traits[]

Swain Tavira cares deeply for the citizens of the Empire, unlike some of the Imperial officers. She dislikes the sometimes brutal subjugation of the Empire's enemies and views that as a darker side of the Empire. A trait that often makes her look weak, unsure and innocent in the eyes of her superiors. Yet her superior officer, commander Velasus views her as a promising officer and bridg prospect. Swain is a formidable fighter in hand-to-hand combat.

Upon her promotion and joining of the Legatus, she showed great dislike for the new grey standarized uniform, feeling they didn't show enough of her slim body and instead made her feel plump. She continued to wear a black cap, something that most Schnorchel-class commanders do.

Due to her upbringing she believes in the mystical energies like magic and as such is disgusted by the sometimes waste of nature in the name of progress and industry. Despite her patriotism, her profound loyalty to a fault to the Empire seems to falter after witnissing the cruelties of some of its officers. Swain was a light-skinned woman with auburn hair and green eyes.
