Born in Tomahawk Kentucky, on planet
Earth, Tyrus grew up living in a hard working household. He was the youngest of 4
children, all boys. He spent most of his youth fighting with his brothers, working on his
family's farm or out hunting with his father.
His Father was the one who taught him to
shoot, something he picked up on naturally. He became locally famous in his town for his
rifleman skills. He was so good at it that his studies began to take a back seat to it. It
wasn't until he got to high school that he realized he needed to get an education to
succeed. He worked hard and was a B student.
In addition to working hard in school, he also began playing sports in high school. He
tried out for the wrestling team at his high school, where his three older brothers had
made a name for themselves in their high school days. It took some work but because he had
wrestled with his brothers when he was little, he picked up on it and became successful,
making it to the state tournament 3 times.
After his senior season of wrestling, he started looking towards his future. He didn't
really want to go to college, he wanted to join starfleet, but he didn't meet starfleet's
high requirements, so he enlisted in starfleet's marines. He was in pretty good shape so
boot camp wasn't a problem. When they went to the rifle range, his years of practice with
his rifle payed off. He was the winner of the top marksman award for his company. After
graduation, he found getting promotions were coming fast. He recieved advanced rank
because of his test scores and his status in boot camp. He attained the rank of Sergeant
Major,and made Platoon sergeant as well as a sniper when he got stationed on the Tomar.
