Hmmm...well that would depend upon the timeline I suppose.  If Salem had come to the homeworld within a couple of years of Ossanlin's deployment, Siruvan would've still been a student.  In fact, Siruvan would've only been graduated for about a year by the time Ossanlin became a War-Prince and a Captain at that.  Immediately after his graduation, Siruvan became an assistant Tail Fighting instructor at the Academy.  A couple of years after that, Kirun retired from Academy instruction.  He still fights in tournaments now and again, but he's getting on in years.  When he retired from the Academy, Siruvan took over as the head Tail Fighting instructor.  The Academy doesn't allow him to teach Ken-Kara (Ossanlin's style with swords), but he has a couple of students who take lessons from him outside of Academy-sponsored class who are studying the form with him.  Swords aren't allowed in tournament fighting, but the Ken-Kara forms can be used without them to great effect.

Anyway...yeah...fro m Ossanlin's graduation up to 2 years or so, Siruvan was still a student.  From +2 to +4-5 years or so, he was an Assistant Instructor, and from +4-5 years or so to present, he's been the head Tail Fighting instructor at the Academy.  As such, his notoriety (and any relationship he might have had with Salem), would be different depending upon Salem's time-frame for his Homeworld stay.

I would love to compose a response tonight, but I need to get to sleep so I can get up for work tomorrow (today for most ppl).  So it'll have to wait a bit.

Also...Salem doesn't want to be a "homeless drifter," yet wants to keep the device that allows him to be a homeless drifter on a literally infinite scale...  >_>

Oh... Gods... I just realized that the name "Hope Drive" may have been a cruel joke at Salem's expense this whole time...

I'm glad you guys enjoyed getting a taste of Salem's background, by the way ^_^ I enjoyed writing it. Took a fair amount of research into my old notes-- it's been a while since I delved that deep.

Also, yes, I did just have Salem quote Dollhouse. Sue me. I liked that show.

And damn if he isn't playing hardball, eh?
Hoo, yeah. No kidding. Haha. Oh, this plot thread is so much fun ^_^

I intentionally left Salem's reference to Siruvan vague, because while I'm assuming Salem is at least acquainted with Siruvan, I don't yet know how or how well. Haha. We'll have to figure that one out at some point.

I've been neglecting Morgan and Julian.
You should stop doing that. They miss you. WE miss you :P Luckily, with the pace the bar moves at these days, you haven't actually fallen very far behind as far as plot goes. You could pick up and post again as though nothing had happened and hardly anything would be amiss.

Pooosted. <3 Amazingly. XD Added a little bit of intrigue in there for the heck of it. :P Didn't post for Mar, since Terenia's post still isn't in. Will respond to that. 

I also just remembered that Keshin actually agreed to help Salem before Jeffrey goaded Myitt into trying to kill Keshin and Joanne, so he's going to be going over to meet him after he's finished. :]

8D Lumy, that post was absolutely fabulous. You and Ossanlin are really scaling up the quality bar by a lot. XD Since Terenia seems absent, I'll post soonish. Thanks for finally giving me the background on Salem, and a lovely read. : }

Lumy, I read your post and I'm glad I did.  I cried a little, it was beautiful.

As for me, I actually posted!  :D

Excellent!  ^^  That was a pure joy to read, just as I expected.  We'll say that Ossanlin knows who Jamil is, but it didn't seem to fit its way into that post without sounding forced, in a manner of speaking.

And we learn not only of Ossanlin's latent homosexual feelings, but his rank in Sector Seven as well.  ;)  And damn if he isn't playing hardball, eh?

Oh... goodness. It turns out Ossanlin's "I'm blackmailing you into telling me your life story" request to Salem has resulted in a wall of text. Who knew? Sorry, Luke >.< Haha. Everyone else... Salem's post is skippable. Definitely the most background information I've ever given out in the GESB regarding his character, though.

Luke, For reference, "Jamil" is a name Ossanlin may (or may not) recognize. It refers to Jamil-Herifas-Halennen, a (comparatively) young member of the Andalite Electorate, a sort of political rockstar who rose quickly to prominence not long before Salem arrived on the homeworld, and one of the points of contact between the Electorate and the military. Sound kosher to you?

She's off-radar in Mexico, but I'll poke her when she gets back later this week :)

I’ll try to get a post up later tonight. But right now, I’m about to go home and I have Resident Evil 4 to play and death metal to listen to :P
