Tabor Allen Reid
Commander Reid stands at 5’-7” tall, and weighs in at 145 lbs. He is athletically built and strong for his size. His hair is sandy blonde with flecks of early gray, and his eyes are a bright blue. He has a tattoo on his left forearm of the Submarine Corp insignia with the phrase: “Waves Above Us For Liberty”, written beneath it.
Commander Reid enlisted in the CRN at age 18 to pursue a career as a naval aviator. After failing the eyesight requirement, his recruiter encouraged him to join the burgeoning Submarine Corp, and Reid accepted. After basic submarine training he was selected to attend Fire Technician School where he would learn the intricacies of modern submarine armaments and systems. During his time at FTS, his instructors noted that Reid was a gifted and driven individual, and his name was put forth as an officer candidate.
He was offered a slot at Guildlea, Carodie’s Naval Academy, upon his completion of FTS, but Reid refused, stating that he desired field experience before pursuing an officer ranking. He was assigned to the fast attack submarine C.R.S Dark Thunder where he served with distinction for thirteen months as the ships primary FT. Upon the completion of his tour of duty, he enrolled at Guildlea at age 22. Reid graduated Guildlea three years later, and was awarded the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade before being assigned to the C.R.S Havoc as the ship’s Gun Captain.
Reid served three tours aboard Havoc where he was a part of nine direct combat engagements. At the suggestion of the Havoc’s Captain, Reid was awarded the Distinguished Combat Medal and a spot amongst Rear Admiral Dixon’s submarine command staff. At age 31 he was appointed by Rear Admiral Dixon as second in command for the CRN Submarine Corp, and promoted to the rank of Commander. He serves in that capacity to this day.
Commander Reid is a man with a pronounced Type-A personality. He is driven to be the best at everything he does, but more importantly he inspires those around him to pursue their own endeavors with equal fervor. Those who know him describe him as a warm and personable man that possesses a quick smile and an even quicker wit. Reid is even tempered, but he does not shy away from defending or arguing his position, even when this means disagreeing with individuals of higher station than himself. He is somewhat regretful that he was never the captain of his own submarine, and if this fact is brought up, especially when used as leverage in a discussion, it is one of the few topics that instantly angers Reid.
