The pilot who can see the future... but can he avoid it?
- Federation Attorney Kelly Ames, on Talver’s attack.
Aedon Talver has been pessimistic his entire life. This is because he is a precog. He can take glimpses into the future, and he does not want what he sees. He often inserts snide comments in every conversation, just to drag it down, but deep inside wants to believe in a better future than what he sees. He is a primed and fit man still in his youth, and bears a sharp militaristic attitude. He bears shortcropped dark hair and often sports his old Federation pilot uniform.
Concept: Precognitive Pilot
Casting Call: Tamo Penickett, Galactica (HELO)

Born from a small family in the home cluster, Aedon could not grow up in a normal child hood even if he wanted. It was hard to keep a happy and optimistic view on life when you knew how thing would generally go wrong. After all he knew his parents relationship would go bad even before it did. He knew his brother would get into gangs and drugs, which would eventually lead him to jail. Here he tried to subtly help his brother avoid this but event still lead to Davion downfall. As such he develops a rather cynical personality that tended to see the darker aspect of life.
Wanting to get away from his dismal life Aedon signed up for the military. He quickly signed up for their aerospace division cause while flying is plane in open sky or deep space his gift/curse bothered him the least and he was generally free. Minimum visions made his time in the plane his most enjoyable time. When he could he transferred from active duty to test pilot and flying the most complicated machines. Eventually his reputation grew and he even became a sort of lucky charm in the industry as any plane he choose never seem to crash or have any bad accidents.
However his life his a painful crossroads. He met the StarMech CEO Adam Spiner. A wealthy investor of one of the new aircrafts he would be flying. He was a known investor in a lot of military technology so it was natural that he would be in the aerospace development. However one day as the two shook hands Aedon’s mind flashed with a horrific image. This man would use his power and influence to start the next genocide and this one would end up stretching the planets. Acting a split second decision Aedon reached forward and snapped the mans neck right there in the party. But realizing what he had done he slowly raised his hands in surrender.
1. Who is character? What does he look like?
Precognitive since childbirth, couldn’t find peace in his small community – so sought freedom in being a fighter pilot for the Federation. (Galactic Concord) Unfortunately met the CEO of StarMech, Adam Spiner, and saw his future as the destroyer of worlds – so without any other choice, he killed him Late 20’s. Exactly like HELO (from Galactica) in appearance. Quirks: Generally pessimistic character. Injects snide and sarcastic comments in every conversation – but deep down holds a very small sense of hope. Wants to think positively, but cant because of his PRECOG power.
