The Red and the Black
Average height, with grey eyes and light brown hair usually kept closely cropped even though he’s now retired.
Harlan has been a cavalry officer for the entirety of his time in service with the Imperial Army. After graduating the academy he fought in the tail end of the Fifth Frontier War, and was afterwards sent to a wheeled cavalry unit, usually deployed as garrisons on the Imperial frontier, where the maintenance demands of lift units cannot be easily sustained.
After his promotion to major in 1114, he spent his last term of service as acting garrison commander on a distant world in the Spinward Marches with the 57th Armored Cavalry Regiment. There he and the regiment cooperated with the civilian government, provided local security against pirate raiders, and drilled for the possibility of another Zhodani invasion.
