Penn is a headstrong and action orientated guy. In fact, it's probably what elevated him to his position of General, though it's also what drives every other important person around him nuts. He was always a soldier, one of the guys, and now he's in charge of them. He can't break the rules any more because he's the one who's supposed to be setting them.
He's impulsive and enjoys life. He's the general that will still be out at 3 in the morning with an olcinyty and a dozen drinks. He's the one who'll rock up to a training session and as long as you get there before he does, he doesn't care if you were late.
Of course, all this can turn on you very quickly. He likes things done right and if you make him look bad, he will ensure you pay for it for a long time.
Truth be told, he is actually good at his job, even though you might not think it.
PrivateThoughts on Earth:
It's pretty decent. He likes it here. Thoughts on Humans:
They're a fucking inventive bunch, he'll give them that. He's not seen any other race that has come up with so many different ways to have fun.
Alyxac was born to a genetic pairing. He never really thought much about his parents. What use were they to him? He had everything he needed. Friends, a younger sister, adults to train and look after him. Truthfully, he never really considered who his parents were until he was asked to take part in a pairing himself.
His life was relatively normal, by Adveni standards. He was good at what he did, a decent fighter, well educated, and when he joined the Nyrahby, he went into flight training. That, he found, was where he really fitted in. Being in the air was a thrill like nothing else, and soon he excelled.
Once fully trained, Alyxac worked and slowly moved up in rank. Though he was easily most at home when in the air, after six years he was training others. Eight years and he was training the people who trained others. By this point, he already had his three children, not that he really communicated with them much. He travelled between worlds where natives were fighting Adveni rule and took over commands. Alyxac was the perfect battleground pilot.
When he was approached to go to Earth, he figured why the hell not. It was just another mission, right? Wrong. Alyxac was back at school, leaning language and history. He was given a new name, Thomas Penn, and sent to Earth to work in the Air Force down in Texas.
He arrived with faked transfer papers from a base in Nevada, and started training humans how to fly their own planes (something he found incredibly amusing.)
What Thomas hadn't expected, however, was just how much fun he'd have on Earth. Rollercoasters. Seriously, the Adveni had something wrong with them if they didn't realise how fucking brilliant those things were. And motorcycles. And Cars. And... To make a long story short, Thomas Penn found himself right at home.
When the invasion hit, Thomas handed over the access codes for the base, allowing for a swift theft of information. Bombers were sent to destroy everything, and Thomas and the rest of the Nyrahby were off to fight other battles.
It was only a few months ago when his General died. Nothing suspicious, the guy was old, and surprisingly, Thomas was offered the position. He's not sure he fits it, but goddamn is being in charge a thrill ride all in itself.
