On January 1, 2011
Ruvau (USS Cort├ęs)
received the:

Character Development Award

Character Development Award

with the following reason:

It should come as little surprise to many, that the next commendation to be awarded is that of the Character Development Award. This is a [u]Level 1[/b] award through the Pegasus Fleet Award System that is awarded to the player(s) who develop their character throughout the simulations current and previous mission, while also throughout the fleet. To Lieutenant (JG) Ruvau who had to endure the devastating loss of his one true love at the very hands of his own government, a species he's now defected from in doing so by joining Starfleet and becoming a citizen of the Federation. It's a last, hopeful attempt to start a new life and escape the unparalleled injustices he painfully endured while serving the Romulan Empire.

Since receiving this award, Ruvau transferred to Deleted Characters.
