The Alliance Fleet

     John "Black Jack" Geary 
An officer from a hundred years earlier who finds himself awakening in the same war he was fighting, ground down to a stalemate.

  • The Ace: A brilliant tactical commander, bordering on supergenius. Subverted and Deconstructed with the fact he's not so much a genius as the Navy's standards have degenerated badly.
  • Berserk Button: Murdering POWs and civilians. Also, to a lesser extent, comparing him to Black Jack Geary's myth.
  • By-the-Book Cop: A naval officer from a time when this was standard wakes up in a time when they're all expected to be Cowboy Cop Military Maverick types.
  • The Captain: Certainly one of these.
  • Expy: Of both King Arthur and Steve Rogers.
  • Famed In-Story: To an almost ridiculous degree, much to his chagrin.
  • Flanderization: Has been subject to this over the past century with his myth elevated to an Ax-Crazy Leeroy Jenkins who is, somehow, still an Invincible Hero.
  • Humble Hero: Which is all but inevitable when you don't accept being The Messiah.
  • Invincible Hero: What most people believe him to be. He's far from it but still very good at what he does.
  • Military Maverick: A bizarre example. The REST of the fleet doesn't have much in the way of discipline, ethics, or devotion to rules—so he's this by the fact he is a By-the-Book Cop.
  • An Officer and a Gentleman: One of the few left in the fleet.
  • Only Sane Man: A large part of his ability to command the fleet effectively boils down to the fact he's one of the few officers who isn't interested in a suicidal attacks on the enemy.
  • The Paragon: A morally virtuous man and brilliant strategist held up as an example to others.
  • Real Men Love Jesus: Is faithful to his ancestors, albeit not as much as some.
  • Rip Van Winkle: Wakes up a hundred years after he went into his stasis pod.
  • The Strategist: His biggest advantage is that he employs ''any tactics at all' against the Syndics.
  • UST: Has quite a bit of it with Desjani. Resolved when they get married.

     Tanya Desjani 
The first officer in the Alliance fleet underneath John Geary.

  • Green-Eyed Monster: Develops this attitude to Rione when she takes up with Geary.
  • Number Two: Serves as this to Geary.
  • Real Men Love Jesus: Believs Geary was sent by the living stars.
  • The Watson: Serves as this to Geary, calling him out on his mistakes as well as educating him on common elements of culture he doesn't know about due to his long stasis.
  • Woman Scorned: A minor example as she utterly loathes her ex-lover for cheating on him and won't even have his name spoken in her presence afterward.
  • UST: Has a lot of this with Geary until they get married.

     Victoria Rione 
The Co-President of the Callas Republic, allies to the Alliance. Her husband was captured by the Syndic earlier in the war and believed K.I.A.
