Physical appearance Edit
D'Arezzo was considered by most people to be extremely handsome. In fact, as a former sex slave, he was designed to be attractive. Like most former Manpower slaves, he had an ID code genetically "tattooed" on his tongue. (SI1)
Paulo was born as the son of two of Manpower Incorporated's "pleasure slaves". He and his parents were on a slaver that was intercepted by a Manticoran ship commanded by Captain D'Arezzo; Paulo's mother was killed in the following struggle, but he and his father survived and filed for Manticoran citizenship, taking the name of the officer who freed them. Years later, Paulo became a cadet at the Royal Manticoran Naval Academy on Saganami Island.
He left the Academy with the class of 1920 PD and reported for his midshipman cruise aboard HMS Hexapuma, where he met Helen Zilwicki. Once the ship arrived in the Talbott Cluster, d'Arezzo served as a member of the bridge crew in his shift and took part in the Battle of Nuncio. (SI1)
In early 1922 PD, after returning to Manticoran space, Paulo was assigned to the fabrication department aboard the space station HMSS Weyland, along with Aubrey Wanderman. He and Wanderman were evacuated along with the station's research staff during an emergency drill, causing them both to survive the destruction of Weyland in Operation Oyster Bay. (HH12) He was later assigned to the HMS Charles Ward as a Assistant Electronic Warfare Officer.
