Sidur Haski Defense Force Soldier
Service Class

The Sidur Haski Defense Force is a unified service organization dedicated to the protection of the Sidur Haski system from Internal or External threats to its stability. These troops are highly accustomed to the rigors and situations presented by space combat.
Characteristics: An SHDF Soldier is by nature proud and highly motivated to preserving order. They act as spaceship crews, ground troops, palace guards, Police, and customs agents. The diverse nature of their role encourages a certain resourcefulness and adaptability in their operations. The intense nature of the many training exercises these troops endure fosters a high regard to Sidur Haskian tradition and formality in all things.
They are courteous and civil overall, but fight with a resolve that rivals hardened combat troops when the situation calls for it.
Background: SHDF Soldiers are recruited from the very low (but growing) population of Sidur Haski, but as the new reforms in trade and industry have come into play, more and more outsiders are signing up. Many soldiers are seen hailing from neighboring systems,
Adventuring: A SHDF soldier is a good well-rounded service type character, well suited to protracted operations in space.

Class Type: Service
Initial Requirements: The Character must be a citizen of Sidur Haski, and citizenship is an automatic right of all those who enlist from outside the system.
Intelligence 10+, Dexterity 10+, and endurance 10+, are also required.

Patrol Command Officers inspect all incoming vessels entering the system, before they get anywhere near the Starport or one of the system’s 21 Orbital Cities.
