Bia Pandora was introduced to the military through her former employer, Boomer Boris, who was a member of the AB. She also met with TheSpartan, former Lieutenant General of the AB. She was inspired to follow a path of honor and serve the United States nation. She joined the newly formed Training Corps First Division as troop number 29 under the command of Platoon Leader Alrich Harper and Executive Officer crashnburn. After a successful graduation on November 2, 2009, she was transferred to the 303rd Platoon in the Reserves Division of the Training Corps. The 303rd was under the command of Platoon Leader Stockholmcode.
Bia Pandora was promoted to Sergeant Major and became the Executive Officer of the 303rd Platoon on November 15, 2009 in the Reserves Division, Alpha Company. She was quickly promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and became the Platoon Leader and Commanding Officer of the 304th Platoon on November 16, 2009. Bia believed the 304th Platoon needed a better name, worthy of inspiration and admiration. 2nd Lt. Bia Pandora renamed the 304th Platoon The Spartans in honor of her friend, mentor and King, TheSpartan, by then General of the AB.
Bia has been consistently active in all aspects of the game, and has demanded the same out of her troops. She has instituted policies and systems in her platoon that have been emulated throughout the rest of the Reserve Division, and is constantly a shining example to others in both the Reserve Division and the USTC as a whole. She upholds the ideas of respect and honor in all aspects of the game. She has always volunteered to help in any way, and excels at whatever responsibility she is given. It is my duty and my HONOR to recommend her for a Level 2 USTC Commendation.
Bia's fondest memories of her time as a Platoon Leader involved her arch nemesis platoon, the 305th Power Rangers, led by then LT Disco Musolini.
On January 11, 2010, she was promoted to 1st Lieutenant and became a S7 Training Officer whilst still serving as the Platoon Leader of The Spartans.
But, a need arose for another Company and a strong Leader. The Bravo Company was created as part of the Reserves Division. Bia Pandora was promoted to Captain and Company Officer of the newly created Bravo Company on January 26, 2010.
This exciting event infused new life in the Training Corps. The efforts of Captain Pandora were recognized and, once again, she was awarded a Level 2 Commendation proposed by the then General Relin. The Commendation read as follows:
For organizing the first monthly Platoon Games, for fostering fraternity inter- and intra-platoon fraternity, and for improving inter-branch relations.
On February 14, 2010, Lt. Gen. Abayarde announced the creation of the Inspector General position, reporting directly to him. He stated that said person would:
- Create a list of standards for each position within the Training Corps
- Create an inspection program including an initial qualification, and subsequent "no-notice" inspections of existing officers. NO OFFICER WILL BE EXEMPT, not even the JCS
- Act as a point of contact and troop advocate for complaints and problems within their chain of command
During that post, Lt. G. Abayarde announced the promotion of Col. Bia Pandora as the Inspector General of the Training Corps.
Colonel Bia Pandora worked to create standards for each position in the chain of command for the Training Corps. These were instituted and an inspections program was created to ensure compliancy. After hiring new officers as Inspections Officers, the Inspector General's office began submitting regular reports on officer's performance, making recommendations for mentoring and also highlighting individual achievement.
The Platoon Olympics were a great success. In an effort to ensure the promotion of fraternity, camaraderie, and overall fun, Bia Pandora put out an advertisement in the TC Base in March 23, 2010.

TC Command and the JCS

On May 23, 2010, General Abayarde unexpectedly retired. That same day, Bia Pandora was promoted to General of the Training Corps, with the rank of a four star General. She selected Major General Nuriessa as her Executive Officer, who was then promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General.
Due to the chaotic and hectic situation the entire TC experienced, General Bia Pandora saw it fit to create a special ribbon for the entire TC Staff that experienced such times of change. She awarded all TC Staff the newly created Training Corps Meritorious Team Commendation for their grace and courage in times of difficulty (courage under fire).
On September 2, 2010, Bia Pandora resigned from her post as Commanding Officer of the Training Corps. She embarked in a long and hard journey of scholarly endeavours. She remained as an Advisor to the JCS until she retired during Jankems term as CJCS.

On mid-October 2010, Bia Pandora joined the Airborne. She was quickly promoted to Sergeant and XO of the 101st, 2nd platoon. On October 31 she was promoted to Platoon Commanding Officer of the 82nd Company, 2nd platoon. Bia retired from the Airborne and the US Military in early October 2011.
Freebird or The MU World Tour
In early October 2011, Bia grew weary of the drama surrounding by the US Miltiary's split from the government, and the overall US leadership attitude, from all sides, that "nothing is wrong, everything is fine, shut up and do what we tell you", while our fighters tried desperately to work together and make things better. Not wishing to be a part of the continued division of US fighting forces, a situation she would have strongly fought against had she not retired from the JCS, Bia left the Military and continued to support US damage output on her own, visiting random Military Units to make new friends and visit old ones.
The Marine Corps
After growing weary of her MU Tour, Bia slipped into the United States Marine Corps MU for a short visit. The Marines treated Bia as if she were one of them, even though she was no longer a member of the US Military. Bia's stay grew longer day after day, until she realized that the Marines were where she really wanted to be.
On Day 1663, Bia wrote an article about her history and experiences titled The Evolution of an eWarrior. In addition to her game history it announced her acceptance, and subsequent pride in becoming a member of the Marines that day.
Bia retired from the United States Marine Corps in March 2013 with the retirement of Commandant Tiacha, after she finally admitted to herself that the United States Military was no longer the legendary institution of honor that she loved, but something completely different; a shell of it's former self and glory since "the split" from the government. While she loves the Marines to this day, she felt she could no longer represent the institution as a whole and it's leadership in it's current form, now called the "JCS militia". Sadly, Bia is one of many past US Military leaders who has left the group with a heavy heart after watching the organization suffer and plunge into mediocrity and inactivity under the "leadership" of post-split CJCS, Bradley Reala and cyber witch.
After her retirement from the Marines, Bia found a safe haven in a small MU, beerman616. Bia has received invitations from several premiere US fighting forces but has yet to choose a permanent home., let by another past US Military General who retired from the organization for similar reasons,
- USTC Level 4 Commendation Ribbon
- Joint Chiefs of Staff Ribbon (with silver star)
- Training Corps Service Ribbon (with one bronze star)
- 2 Training Corps Level 2 Commendations (with one bronze star)

- Meritorious Conduct Award
- ATO Volunteer Award
- World War III
- Operation Frostbite Ivan
- Operation Hungary Hungary Hippos
- American Campaign in Asia
- Operation Deadcoat/FT2:Dover's Revenge
- Operation Captain Kangaroo
Bia enjoyed a co-host stint on the WorldWideWhiteheadradio show in September 2011, with Josh Whitehead and Jon Malcom. Highlights of Bia's appearances included calling certain Dirtbags out live, talks of human genitalia, and swooning over Grimstone.
In September 2011, Bia tried her hand at Congress. She finally won a seat on the third try. The first being the month when Inci came in, the second her state was lost during the race. Bia found the state of Congress at the time to be very stifling and overpowering, as was the trend with the rest of the country's groups at that time. She did learn some valuable game lessons which she is grateful for. Bia chose to sit out subsequent congressional runs and ran the following month as a favor. Fortunately for her sanity it was an Inci state and she did not get back in.
Bia was asked to babysit a party for Josh Whitehead on one of his excursions to SA. He allowed her to change the party name and use it as a haven for players who didn't really care about, or were disillusioned with US politics. She named it Blood Brethren and it remains to this day an oasis of fun and friendship for those who just want a calm place to hang out. Games of Yahtzee and Uno are know to be enjoyed by all in their IRC channel #BloodBrethren and all are welcome to join in on the fun! The party does not actively recruit but welcomes any and all new members who want a home, temporary or permanent.
Bia is a red headed beauty and highly regarded in the Training Corps. She has many suitors but has yet to choose an Partner. Although, there are rumors that many claim the honor. Some claim to be devoted followers of Bia Pandora.
An auction has been in the works for a date with General Bia Pandora. According to rumors, the winner was supposed to get to take General Pandora on a date at the TC cafeteria where Lt. killerballerina will play the flute during the meal. Other things for auction were supposed to be seats at an opera concert (a la The Fifth Element) by Lt. G. Nuriessa. Unfortunately, it is uncertain did this auction ever took place.
Bia Pandora has gathered an interesting "fan base" of sorts. An organization by the name "Switzerland was stalking her. She has stated that she is very flattered by all the attention. But, things turned more interesting when, on day 1,011 of the New World, a stalker was born by the name of in South Africa. No information has been found regarding this stalker, and the General has been moved to a secure undisclosed location." located in
Although allegedly single, Bia Pandora was seen in the vicinity of TheSpartan's house. But, after tolerating months of abandonment, she found solace in the arms of (Identity withheld for security issues because this man can break people). TheSpartan bought Bia a kitten, an attempt to win her back. But, (name withheld) broke TheSpartan, grabbed the kitten named Waffles and gave it to Bia. Bia has since filed a restraining order against TheSpartan and hidden the cat.
Also, she changed her hair color to brown, then to white, then back to brown.
Bia Pandora has been witnessed stalking Morrigan Alexandros. Morrigan was forced to get a restraining order after finding Bia on her deck at 4:30 AM. Undeterred, Bia continued with her viscious cycle. Morrigan acquired a llama, which she hopes will protect her and escort Bia to another destination.
Bia has had several admirers but has chosen to remain Single at this time.
