Thomas Oliver Sciarello (ʃərɛloʊ) was the Chief Medical Officer of the Aegis VII Colony.[1]


Early LifeEdit

Tom Sciarello was born to a comfortable family life in the United States sector of Earth in North Carolina Hubs. Tom's father was a surgeon, and his mother a general practitioner. It was expected that his older brother, Carlos Sciarello, would follow in their footsteps, but instead Carlos went off the rails and has spent a lifetime in and out of jail for petty crimes.

Feeling the weight of responsibility, Tom took up the mantle instead, and plunged headfirst into a comfortable career and family life. He married young, had two children, and ran a successful surgery on Earth for many years.

Then his parents both died within a month of each other, and Tom's life fell apart. The loss had a much greater impact than anyone could have foreseen. Within six months, he had divorced his wife, closed his surgery and joined a small extraterrestrial mining company as their fleet doctor. Unfortunately, he rapidly discovered that life in space freaked him out.

Tom cast around for a position on Mars, but instead found an opening with Concordance Extraction Corporation, who were looking for good doctors to head up colony surgeries. Grateful for any job that would only require a bare minimum of space travel, he took it.

Ten years later, Tom has presided over three successful planetcrack colonies and was recently promoted to Chief Medical Officer (CMO). He has never remarried.

The Second Aegis VII IncidentEdit

Sciarello is a sound atheist and very confused of the events that are happening in the colony, including experiencing visions of his dead nurse, Katie, murdered at the hands of a crazed miner, Harris. He begins to suspect that the Marker that was excavated from the planet is responsible for the wave of violence coming happening in the colony, going so far as to secretly test it for radiation. He is frequently attacked by hostile patients who were affected by the Marker.

Sciarello and P-Sec Sergeant Abraham Neumann had attempted several times to convinces the colony's manager, Hanford Carthusia, in abandoning the mining project for the number of violent incidents, but their requests were ignored. Following the planet crack and the near total blackout of the colony, Sciarello had his last vision of Katie who warned him "There's no time, Tom. I tried to warn you. Now it's too late." After this, Sciarello soon discover that the entire colony is under attack. He and several doctors went to the colony's Med-Labs in expecting that people will be there for help. Once they were in the hospital's morgue, Sciarello is impaled through the forehead by a Slasher hanging from the room's ceiling.
