Garion ‘Oz’ Rivanson is a graduate of Starfleet Academy on Earth. He grew up in the Southern Hemesphere in the landmass and country that at one stage was known as Australia. Growing up, he played all kinds of sports, representing his region in various school sports including tennis, cricket, athletics and swimming. He is also a skilled kenshi (Kendo practitioner) having reached the 4th dan and currently in training for the fifth dan. The concept and purpose of Kendo is something he tries to bring into his every day life as a man, member of the Federation and Starfleet Officer.

Garion’s parents, Geran and Ildera, filled Garion’s and Adara’s lives with love and joy. Geran and Ildera worked in Engineering and Science respectively, both at Australian University, where they met while studying. The Romance Professors, they are known as by students and staff alike, a reference that they no longer mind (and actually appreciate). They were married in December 2371, with Ildera giving birth to Adara in May 2372 and then Garion in December 2373.
Adara is a geologist by training and while on a geology dig on Crell, fell in love with a wheelbound man by the name of Hettar.

CONCEPT AND PURPOSE OF KENDO (from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kendo#Concept_and_purpose)
Concept
Kendo is a way to discipline the human character through the application of the principles of the katana.

Purpose
To mold the mind and body.
To cultivate a vigorous spirit
And through correct and structured training,
To strive for improvement in the art of Kendo.
To hold in esteem courtesy and honor.
To associate with others with sincerity.
And to forever pursue the cultivation of oneself.
Thus will one be able:
To love one’s country and society;
To contribute to the development of culture;
And to promote peace and prosperity among all people.
