Physical Appearance Edit
Khumalo was a large man, over 180 centimeters, and described as 'massive' and 'beefy', with broad shoulders and a powerful chest, though he was also somewhat portly. His eyes and complexion were very dark, as was his hair, though Michelle Henke noted that it was greyer than she remembered. (SI1, SI2)
In 1920 PD, he held the rank of Rear Admiral of the Green and served as the commanding officer of Talbott Station. His flagship was the Samothrace-class superdreadnought HMS Hercules, Captain Victoria Saunders commanding. His chief of staff during that time was Captain Loretta Shoupe.
Initially considered a by-the-book officer lacking both imagination and strategic ability, he surprised his fellows and distinguished himself to the Grantville government with his actions in supporting Captain Aivars Terekhov during the crisis surrounding the annexation of the cluster and the military build-up in the Monica System. As a result he earned considerable respect from his peers in the Navy, from Governor-General Dame Estelle Matsuko, and from the inhabitants of the Talbott Quadrant. (SI1, SI2)
Though she initially disliked him, his relationship with Dame Estelle thawed considerably following the Battle of Monica, and the two developed an excellent working relationship as well as a warm personal friendship. (SI2, HH14)
Following the Battle of Monica, he was promoted to Vice Admiral, and to full Admiral a year later. He was promoted a day before Admiral Gold Peak in order to keep him the senior officer on Talbott Station. (SI2, HH14)
