'''Aaron Sandoval''' - (born [[2962]]<ref name=HDFSHDp182>''House Davion (The Federated Suns)'', - "Aaron Sandoval personal profile"p. 182</ref> - died [[3048]]<ref>''Field Manual: Federated Suns'', p. 32 - "James Dassert Sandoval profile" - delay in ducal title being transferred to his son James.</ref>) is a [[Federated Suns]] nobleman and [[March Lord]] of the [[Draconis March]]. He began his military career as an enlisted armor commander but would later command a regiment of [[BattleMechs]].
Duke Sandoval is characterized as politically ambitious whose loyalties lie primarily in the Draconis March and preserving it from [[House KuritaDraconis Combine]] aggression.
==Character Physical Description==
A man with several decades behind him, Duke Sandoval has yielded few of his youthful features to his advanced age. Few wrinkles crease his face and his hair has retained its natural brown color. Sandoval still styles his hair in a "top knot" fashion (the traditional 'do' of the Sandoval family). Early in his military career, Duke Sandoval lost both of his legs in battle. Despite this disability, Duke Sandoval has a perfect bill of health.<ref name=HDp182/>
In [[2982]], Aaron would meet his future wife, a tank driver named Corporal Jessica Danforth. She hailed from a poor family from the world of [[Broken Wheel]]. She had been assigned to Aaron's tank and they both fell in love. However, early regulations did not permit individuals having a relationship while serving in the same unit, so Jessica was reassigned to a different tank.
Later that year, the 159th was attached to the [[15th Avalon Hussars]]. The regiment was then on an offensive mission to the world of [[Rio]], to battle against the [[Capellan Confederation]]. During the battle, Jessica's tank was threatened by a Liao Capellan ''[[Marauder]]''. Seeing her in mortal danger, Aaron took his tank from its hiding spot and placed his tank in the path of the enemy BattleMech. He fired all its weaponry in hoping to distract the 'Mech from Jessica's tank. Most of his shots missed the target, however Aaron was successful in gaining the attention of the ''Marauder''. The 'Mech unloaded its arsenal into Aaron's tank, rendering his Tank into a wreckage.
Gravely wounded, losing both of his legs from the action<ref name=HDFSHDp182/>, his father heard of his whereabouts and his heroic actions on Rio. He had his unconscious son and lover Jessica brought to Robinson to recover. When Aaron awoke from his coma, he learned that his father had been searching for him for two years. He soon discovered that his older brother had died in a [[DropShip]] accident and that he was now the heir to the Dukedom of Robinson. His father had accidentally discovered what had happened to him after seeing a new vid of his actions with the 159th Galax.
===Love, Marriage, and Politics===
On Robinson, Aaron and Jessica were soon married and had loving and fruitful marriage together. His wife bore three sons and a daughter. Aaron became Duke shortly after the birth of his youngest son, James.
He would later retire from the post of Minister of Draconis March in [[3037]], being replaced by his oldest son James. He died of old age eleven years later and his title of Duke of Robinson would finally pass to James in 3048.<ref>''Field Manual: Federated Suns'', p. 32 - "James Dassert Sandoval profile" - delay in ducal title being transferred to his son James.</ref>
==Family and Legacy== He and his wife Jessica had five children: [[James Sandoval|James]], David, Talbot, and [[Jessica Sandoval-Groell|Jessica]]<ref name=HDFS/> and [[Katheryn Sandoval|Katheryn]] ==Character Notes==* The character profile in [[House Davion (The Federated Suns)]] states that Aaron had four children: [[James Sandoval|James]], David, Talbot, and [[Jessica Sandoval-Groell|Jessica]], but lates sources would add a second daughter, [[Katheryn Sandoval|Katheryn]]<ref name=HDFSHDp182/>. Given that Aarons wife died in 3001 and at the time of the profile he was of the advanced age of 63 it is unlikely that Katheryn was fathered after the profile was written.
