The only thing I have so far is that he was 49 when he got scanned in 336,
he was training with others until they became the 5 Quarantine wafers (and presumably the other 4 were scanned and killed also) and first used in the novel in 350. So, he received

He is sufficiently trained in handguns to take out easy targets, like kneecapping argumentative admirals...

So what does his wafer look like?

Also he was scanned the day after acceptance. He was at Capital at the time with a UWP A586A98-D Hi Cx (secret labs and other issues not withstanding).

I think it said he started in the Marines. But not a combat branch. Not sure how many terms. Then was recruited into the quarantine service (bureaucrat).

Having just re-read the book I can confirm this.

He was in some kind of logistics group where he was responsible for scheduling stuff for 1 term. Then he was recruited into the Quarantine service. So he was probably in support group.

Incorrect, he orders a Marine on the Bridge to knee-cap Admiral Uppity. Honestly, I rather enjoyed his bits with the Admiral, justice richly delivered.

And yeah, he is mostly Functionary (Marine) and then Functionary (Quarintine) for the rest.
