Justinian Kyalantis ‘Kyle’ Atlantic -- A Republicker with an amazing mop of curly blond hair -- Atlantic had been a kid when they left the homeworlds, boarding the ship in the family of one of the engineers. He had joined Pegasus crew during the hyperspace transit when he reached sixteen, the age of adulthood.
When most of the Republickers left the ship, Atlantic stayed behind, and began calling himself ‘Kyle’ to better fit in among a crew that had become majority Sapphirean.
Kyle Atlantic was born in Republic’s City of Progress, the only son of two engineers. He boarded Pegasus as a child of 13 years, and was trained as a helmsman. He later developed precognitive abilities and became part of the Navigation Core.
