Major General Atassa Ciadiel is one of the rarest sights in the Valcarian Imperial Army - a high-ranking female officer. She got into the Imperial Academy on Valcaria thanks to her father's legacy (he was a famous general in the Vodran Wars). Despite the discrimination at every turn and numerous setbacks, she graduated with honors. She began her career as an MT-AS walker jockey and continued to obtain promotions thanks to her flair for command - and the family name.
Atassa was elated at finally getting her promotion to Major General, and eagerly awaited her first Corps HQ appointment. Her joy faded considerably when she learned she would be stationed in the Par'tha Expanse - which is not even considered true Imperial space, and certainly sees little action. Her command, the 1st Par'tha Assault Battlegroup, is based on Aelann.
To her disgust, Atassa finds herself acting more in the capacity of a diplomat than a warrior. She is anxious to get an appointment in the Outlying Territories where the real fighting is, but she is prepared to bide her time and score enough political points in the Par'tha Expanse to make the transfer possible. And if the chance to distinguish herself in battle comes, she will grab it with both hands. The second there is unrest in the sector, Major General Ciadiel will be in the saddle and on the move with her battlegroup.
In the meantime, she keeps her troops in fighting shape. Atassa is a fiery individual with a cruel streak. She treats her troops fairly but is extremely harsh on cut-ups and slackers. They fear but respect her, and that is how she likes it. She has a very bitter, but strongly determined outlook.
Atassa is quietly organizing a band of women warriors with which she hopes to challenge the anti-woman attitudes of the Empire (see the Tiasau Society). She has added as many female officers to her command staff as she thinks she can get away with.
Atassa is tall with long jet-black wavy hair, and her lips blood-red lips. She has dark brown eyes.
