"I'm afraid you're mistaken, Mr. Vice President. I'm not accepting surrender at this time."
-Nathanial Hazelcrown, to Vice-President Huba during an intense chess match
Nathanial Hazelcrown (b. May 3, 1995) is a Commander in the Mirian Navy and the current Assistant Minister of Defense and War. He is also the youngest person ever to make Commander and the first Commander to command any vessel in the history of the Mirian Navy. He is currently in command of the MNV Interceptor (NDDG-435), a modified Intrepid-class Heavy Destroyer. He is also known for his habit of always being two steps ahead of the enemy. Politically, Commander Hazelcrown has described himself as an 'extreme centrist'. Commander Hazelcrown, while being a member of the War Cabinet of Mirum, is- and has been- "a soldier first, a patriot second, and a politician third". Despite this, Commander Hazelcrown has noted that he is far more loyal to the people and the principles of Mirum than the government itself.
Naeris 'Nathanial' Rolen Hazelcrown was born on May 3rd, 1995, to his parents, Peren and Caelynn Hazelcrown, in the border city of New Greymore, Blackacre. His father, Peren, was a Mirian soldier who was stationed over in Blackacre during the time, and Nathanial's mother, Caelynn, had moved as well. Not more than a year later, the Hazelcrowns moved back to Mirum, (specifically the Elven city of Alora, where the Hazelcrown family originally lived). He lived there until he turned eighteen, when he moved to Eleyta and joined the Mirian Naval Academy.
Upon joining the academy, Nathanial quickly was separated from his peers. He had a knack for commanding soldiers, and was quite eccentric and unpredictable when it came to solving problems- however it was clear that he was highly effective, despite his unorthodox tactics. In every simulation, every test, every scenario possible that the academy threw at him- even the notorious Superpincer Scenario that defeated such brilliant minds as President Hugh Edwards himself during his military career- he succeeded. No conventional force that didn't outright obliterate his forces within the first hour was able to stop him. Hazelcrown soon found himself receiving the rank of Second Lieutenant before leaving the academy, and being commissioned as a First Lieutenant- whereas his compatriots in the academy received at the most the rank of Second Lieutenant upon leaving. Upon receiving leaving the academy, the then-1st Lt. Hazelcrown was assigned to the MNS Portmont as the captain's aide.
In his spare time, Nathanial finds the following hobbies quite enjoyable:
Table-Top-Role-Play-Games (especially Trolls, Taverns, & Towers, which he occasionally plays with VP Huba)
Sailing his personal sailboat
Despite his birth in Blackacre, Nathanial does not hold dual citizenship.
Nathanial has a personality type of INTP-T and an IQ of over 135.
He is quite skilled with all the schools of magic, yet protests the usage of Necromancy.
His favorite fruits are persimmons.
