Jico Rylo was born to a family of shrimpers on the Southern Islands. The third of four children, to Jico Mar and Jico Sanda, Rylo was a much more intense and aloof child compared to his two sisters Miika and Vey and his brother Patos. He tended to shun more of the typical beach activities and instead took up various forms of martial arts, predominantly the human practice of Taijijuan and the Klingon practice of Mok’bara. His practice in the former earning him the level of 5th duan in feng huo lun (wind and fire wheels) by the time he graduated the Academy.Despite his family’s history of being shrimpers, Rylo did not much like spending time on boats either. When it came time to help out his family as he got older, he tended to volunteer for more shore duties, like unloading, or helping with docking. He didn’t mind the actual act of boating, he just preferred to stay on land to practice is martial arts.
Rylo of the House of Jico
Rylo is not a confrontational person by any stretch of the imagination. His intense outward appearance belies a calmness and level-headedness which came as a part of his training. However, it did not prevent him from becoming involved in one of the most notable confrontations in the recent history of the Southern Islands. He was just 14, practicing with his feng huo lun rings on the dock, awaiting the return of his father’s boat, when a pair of drunken Klingon brothers, Mobacz and M’Qot of the House of K’Hex, came wandering on to the docks. They spotted the young Bajoran with his rings. They approached him, shouting disparaging remarks about his practices. Young Rylo, much to his credit initially ignored the two. As they got closer to the boy, they were confronted by Rylo’s uncle, Jico Panor, who had also called the local security force prior to stepping to his nephew’s defense. The Klingons easily tossed aside the older Bajoran, who landed in the water. Still, Rylo ignored the two belligerent and obviously inebriated pair and continued on with his ritual. M’Qot, not too thrilled with the fact that the boy was ignoring them, pushed Rylo to the ground quite viciously. Again, Rylo got up and continued, only this time, as the Klingon’s approached again, Rylo swung one of this rings towards M’Qot, slicing open his flask of bloodwine with one of the tiny protruding blades. The angered M’Qot then pulled out his d’k tahq and aggressively lunged at Rylo. He was able to parry the dagger aside with this rings, falling to the side under the brute force of the blow.
M’Qot, due in part to his drunkenness, had also fallen. The quicker and sober Bajoran was to his feet first. The Klingon, now in a full rage, flailed wildly in the direction of Rylo, who was able to catch the blade within his rings and disarm the Klingon, and for good measure, sliced at the Achilles heel of M’Qot, cutting in and rendering him effectively immobile. Mobacz, who was initially amused by the confrontation between M’Qot and Rylo, now flew in with his d’k tahq, only this time, he stumbled on the dock prior to reaching Rylo. Rylo quickly wrapped his rings around the dagger wielding arm of the Mobacz, and pulled them tight against the Klingon’s wrist, trapping it. Rylo then threatened to slice off his hand if he didn’t drop his dagger. After a few tense seconds, and the arrival of the local security force. Mobacz finally relented, releasing his dagger. Rylo grabbed both of the fallen weapons from the dock and walked away.
The two drunk Klingons were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and assault with a deadly weapon, and as a result were banned from Bajor for life. Rylo, was not charged with anything, as his actions were in self-defense. He was allowed to keep the daggers, despite the protestations of the Klingons prior to their banishment. Thus the legend of “Rylo of the House of Jico” was born. Rylo did not much care for the nickname, as his actions were purely in self-defense, and he knew that he would have not stood a chance against two sober Klingons. He also later admitted that if he knew how much of an insult it was to take a d’k tahq, he wouldn’t have done so.
Rylo was always an above average student, and had a fascination with Starfeet after meeting a few Starfleet officers on Bajor in his hometown. With his solid grades and test scores, he jumped at the chance of joining the Academy. His natural fit, based on his love and skill in martial arts, was security. During his time there, he joined the Taijijian club, where he quickly became an instructor, and earning 5th duan in the rings. In many of the hardcore academic classes, he was in the top half of his cohort, but otherwise unremarkable. In his combat classes, he was consistently in the top 10 percent with a specialty in close quarters combat.
It was at the academy where Rylo began to let go of some of the aloofness and intensity, opening up more socially. He still maintained a very introverted style, and did lack for confidence when the situation required something other than his abilities in combat. He often outwardly questioning his statements in both his own mind as well as to those around him and often could become prone to nervous rambling. He tried other hobbies outside of his martial arts, but nothing really sticking. His first ever romantic relationship also came at the Academy, with a human female by the name of Crystal Oxley. The two remained together for the better portion their fourth year at the Academy, breaking up amicably, yet still extremely painfully for Rylo. He has attempted to bury that hurt down, but those who know him can see how much it hurt him.
All in all, Rylo has performed strongly at the Academy and projects to be a quality officer for the Fleet. He is fit for duty.
