He is funny, clever, but stubborn at times. He tends to allow his muscles to back up any promises that he needs to make or threats that need to be given.

Personal History Cyrus was the second sibling of three born in 2366 in Victoria, British Colombia to Henric and Marietta Kiwosk. Henric was a carpenter making a respectable living while Marietta was working as a elementary teacher at St. Victoria elementary school. Cyrus and his siblings grew up in busy city well fed, and learned that life was full of surprises.

It was in 2378 at the age of 18 when Osric left to the academy that changed the life of Cyrus Kiwosk. Cyrus, 12 at the time grew to admire his older brother for the commitment of joining Starfleet. Osric passed the Marine Academy and soon joined the USS Fitzgerald. It was on board the Fitzgerald under the command of Captain Raymond Fernandez that caused Cyrus to change his career path to one of vengeance and retribution.

The Kiwosk family received the KIA apology letter written by Captain Fernandez. Osric had been killed during a mission during the Dominion War. Cyrus was devastated by the sudden loss of his eldest brother and vowed that he would become the second Kiwosk to join Starfleet.

In 2385 Cyrus joined Starfleet Academy and worked hard applying for two different positions: the marine corp and the security academy.

He ended up completing his SFMC training in one year with a four month stint on a series of Starbases for a work term. He followed suit with his two year security training which he completed with no serious problems and proved to be an adaptable officer.

For the next two years he worked with the SFMC on board of the brand new USS Fitzgerald, just like his eldest brother and earned two commendations for helping the Marine CO, Raymond Fernandez, now a Major. during one mission Cyrus was blasted with shrapnel from a loose grenade causing severe damage to his upper torso and left leg. He was rushed to onto the Fitzgeralds' infirmary and made a full recovery after a lengthy surgery.

He requested a transfer to the USS Nova shortly after the ordeal in order to recoup from his ordeal saying he required more time than was slotted for patients.

During this time Cyrus applied to the Marine Academy boot camp training and Security Academy training. He asked special permissions and finished basic training and boot camp in one year and the security academy training in one year with a one semester practicum on board of the USS Endeavor as a 4th year recruit.

2387- graduated Starfleet Academy in the top 5 in the SFMC and top 15 in the top SFSA

He also applied to the USS Fitzgerald to relive the glory and get revenge on the Dominion.

2388- During a mission on board the USS Fitzgerald. Major Fernandez and Kiwosk, now ranked sergeant were attacked and swarmed by Dominion forces during a stop on a science vessel looking for di-lithium. Against overwhelming odds, Kiwosk and Fernandez along with three other marines fought through several ambushes on board the vessel to the bridge and held the line against several waves of Dominion shock troops that before re-establishing communications with the Fitzgerald and beaming out with crucial details relating to the dereliction of the vessel and the extermination of the crew. He received a commendation of bravery and courage.

2389- Early in the year, during another mission, Kiwosk was attempting to save a group of Dominion prisoners with Fernandez when they were ambushed. A Photon grenade landed by his cover and incinerated the outlying rock causing several bits of shrapnel and metal fragments to penetrate his marine armor and damage his upper torso and face. He lost consciousness and was saved by Fernandez who took him back to a shuttle where they took him back to the ship where he was immediately placed into surgery.

Shortly after the ordeal and after he was back in shape, the traumas of what happened caused Cyrus to request a transfer to an outlying nova class in order to cope with his near death experience and to allow him a little extra time to heal up.
