May I command my ship now?
Silas is a human in late middle age and veteran of the Terran Republic’s police forces who is enjoying an active retirement. Most of his officer staff are old friends from his working days who decided to stake their retirement savings on the Beagle rather than settling down planetside. Once his ship leaves port, most of his actual duties are over. He spends much of his time catching up on decades of reading, but makes a point of attending the ship’s formal dances and dinners. His evenings will generally be spent in the ship’s casino, rubbing elbows with patrons and losing boatloads of money to the house, which he just happens to own.
