|Illiad "Steel" Venturican|
|Faction:||The Martian Confederation|
Illiad was born a 3rd generation Martian, one of the upper class that lived in the heart of the terraformed craters. His father, a war hero, died during the passing assault by the Extemos on their passage to Earth. He served in the Confederate military and began to augment himself with mechanical apparatus, increasing his ability to perform beyond that of any human. Eventually, he assumed command of the Reclaimer and established a forward operations center on Earth for the Confederacy before abandoning the chain of command and devoting his efforts to defend Earth from the secondary Extemos attack. He eventually joined the Legion military unit under the command of Athen to aid in the preservation of the Generator.
