|Chronological and political information|
Commander Surlev was the second-in-command of the Strike Cruiser Ion Storm under Captain Barse Neomen. Surlev acted as the commanding officer of the Ion Storm whenever his captain was away, which was quite often. However, as a result of Surlev being extremely loyal to Governor Newen Streeg and Captain Neomen being very disloyal, the captain kept Surlev on a very short leash. Surlev was very dedicated to the idea of cleaning up the Sisar Run, where he was stationed.
