Terry Carter was an Earth Fleet officer active during the Third Civil War. He was a classmate at the Fleet Academy with Erich Von Shrakenberg, who introduced him to his future wife, Sheila. He served a long and distinguished career, most famously commanding the battlecruiser EFS Shenandoah at the Battle of Mars. He also fought in the Battle of Avalon. He and his wife have a daughter named Amy.
Behind the ScenesEdit
He was, of course, named for Terry Carter, the actor behind Colonel Tigh on the original Battlestar Galactica...and who of course serves as his Actor Avatar. The name was also a very oblique reference to the charcter of Zebulon Carter, who had been the Player Character in the previous game of the same player who created Terry as a supporting character and ally for Erich Von Shrakenberg. The name of his daughter Amy is a joke about the family of former US President Jimmy Carter.
