Lt. Cyrus Poe

Lt. Cyrus Poe is former US Marine. His term came up when he was assigned to the US legation in Syrtis Major and he would have been rotated home. However, he had been bitten by the Mars bug and cashed in his return ticket and went looking for work that would let him stay on Mars. He worked for a few years as a part time merchant sailor and ship's security. His travels brought him to Karkarham where he signed on with Captain Harper. He has a gift for languages and speaks fluent Parhoonese and Oenotrian.
