Standing about 1.8 meters tall, Captain Harvester is physically imposing. His looks are athletic and lithe, and coming in at about 90 kilograms, he shows muscle in most areas. His hair, brownish black, lies to one side naturally, with piercing brown eyes set upon a face that is grimly determined to do any duty set before him. A line of facial hair stretches along his jaw, neatly trimmed and carefully maintained, and a long scar stretches from the tip of his left brow down over across the bridge of his nose before ending at his jaw. The evidence of haste is in the old wound, as it looks to have been poorly stitched. The uniform he wears is equally maintained as the man. His black boots are shined to a polish, and the command insignia on his uniform gleams from the attention paid to it. He chooses to wear a pair of black gloves with the uniform, the material looking to be somewhere between a leather and synthetic material. At his hip, a simple sabre rests in a sheathe, the blade has been made with a cortosis weave, with the pommel and handguard made to curl around the hand in a half basket. On the opposite hip is a blaster pistol in a black leather.

Report on role, specialisation and responsibilities pertaining to the subject’s military deployment.
Currently, Captain Harvester is assigned to command a Gage class transport. Although it is noted that Captain Harvester is exceedingly overqualified for command of a vessel, that should by rights be given to a junior officer. His responsibilities extend to those typical of command, keeping his ship and crew in order and carrying out assigned objectives efficiently. As of right now that would simply extend to ferrying around troops and supplies for the Imperial Navy.
Detailed notes on political influence and associates.
Captain Harvester has little political influence within the Empire. Reports indicate what little influence he does have is in a small, localized area on his home planet. The degree of his influence is, however, negligible.
Detailed notes on known rivals and enemies, outside and within the Empire.
It is apparent that Captain Harvester has issues with one Captain Salven. The pair have apparently had a rivalry leading back to Harvester’s days at the naval academy. His commanding officer had Captain Harvester stripped of his command and reassigned to command of a Gage Class Transport after Salven reported Harvester was ignoring the movements of a smuggler across the border. Captain Harvester has submitted a request for his former command to be returned following an investigation that proved him innocent, the request is currently pending.

Psychological evaluation of candidate.
Psychological evaluation of Captain Harvester has shown that, despite numerous combat deployments, he has held up well under pressure. Captain Harvester does seem to have developed a death stick dependency that he indulges regularly. He also shows signs of consistent alcohol abuse, however his abilities in combat and command remain unimpeded. It is believed the habits were formed following the death of his former commanding officer. A few reports were filed about drunkenness of Captain Harvester consistent with this timeline. Following the evaluation Captain Harvester has been issued a warning and is under watch for further deterioration of his psychological state.
List and description of known and suspected flaws. To be put into restricted database.
-Drug Dependency: Captain Harvester mainly suffers from the aforementioned dependency. Dependency testing showed signs consistent with symptoms of withdrawal, including irritability, headaches, and nausea. It is believed that while Captain Harvester is likely not under the influence of any drugs while on duty, he is regularly under their influence off duty.
-Headstrong: It is noted that Captain Harvester has a consistent headstrong outlook, going so far as to follow his own intuition even up to insubordination. Despite the results it has yielded, it has put pressure on his relations with previous commanding officers.
-Gruff: Captain Harvester has no talent for hiding his distaste for others or conversations. His way of speaking and attitude towards those he views as unsuited for the positions they are in can be rough.
-Literal: Captain Harvester does not seem to have the social talent to catch figures of speech or secondary meanings to conversations. At times, this can lead to Captain Harvester completely missing the point of a conversation.
Known interests of the candidate.
Captain Harvester enjoys painting while on leave, though he does prefer not to speak about it. Many of his paintings have been sold at the personal request of several of Captain Harvester's peers, with a few even having been sought after by wealthy imperial officials. These paintings include landscapes and skylines, but by far the most prominent is fleet battles over specific planets. Additionally, he does not hide the fact that he enjoys reading and learning about battlefield history, even that which is not strategically relevant to his role within the Navy.
Major achievements on record.
Captain Harvester took overall command of the C-Class Destroyer Intrepid following the death of his commanding officer in the field near Oseon. Though the Intrepid had taken severe damage and was alone in the engagement, Captain Harvester defeated a small pirate flotilla. Following this he was given a field promotion to Captain by Fleet Command, which was later confirmed after the operation he was assigned to ended.
Shortly before his reassignment he was commended for taking initiative during a pirate ambush. While other officers of the fleet he had been assigned to suffered heavy casualties during an attack, Captain Harvester quickly adapted to the situation and attacked the pirate flagship. The pirates were not expecting the maneuver and the flagship was able to be boarded and taken quickly, the rest of the enemy fleet able to be quickly destroyed following the action and chaos among the pirate ranks. His decisive assault prevented the loss of three other C-Class Destroyers and their crews.
Major failures on record. Confidential.
A failed assault on a Republic held moon led to the loss of a number of craft and almost the entire complement of troops on board four of the five assigned ships of the flotilla. The defeat resulted in the fleet being forced to retreat back from the moon and await four rotations for more troops to be brought in. This was chiefly due to the reassignment of a number of support ships to defend the fleet in response to information received from a captured republic officer. The incident was investigated at the time, and while the defeat was unfortunate, it was determined Captain Harvester acted in due course in response to the information.
