Julian Minci is the son of a soldier who served in the Alliance’s army, he lost his mother at a very young age and, some years later, his father was killed in battle leaving him a war-orphan. As such Julian was admitted in the wartime welfare program and, through the mediation of vice admiral Alex Cazellnu, he was made Yang Wenli’s ward.
Julian is a very intelligent and responsible boy with a knack for house chores and is the one who takes care of the domestically incompetent Yang, so much so that their friends often wonder who amongst the two is the real guardian and who the ward. Julian loves Yang and deeply respects him, both for his kindness and his well-defined philosophy on life.
Yang wants a peaceful life for Julian, but, much to his disappointment, Julian’s dream is to follow in his and his father’s footsteps and become a soldier.
His first battle occurred while on a training exercise as a Spartanian pilot in 798 UC. He survived the destruction of his carrier, the Ameretat, destroyed 3 Walküre fighters, and 1 Imperial cruiser through shooting a missile launcher.
During the Eighth Battle of Iserlohn, Julian destroyed another Walküre fighter, and successfully deduced Admiral Kempff's strategy for dealing with the Alliance reinforcements returning with Yang Wenli. The Iserlohn Garrison Fleet therefore did not fall for Kempff's ruse and successfully launched a surprise attack on the Imperial fleet's rear whilst it was engaged with Yang Wenli's forces.
Julian, as part of a relief force, found Yang Wenli's body, and he was later persuaded that it was his responsibility to break this news to Frederica Greenhill, Yang's wife. Despite being only 18 and a mere Sub-lieutenant, Julian was selected as military commander of the Yang Fleet and subsequently as the leader of the military forces of the newly formed Iserlohn Republic after the death of his guardian.
As commander of the Iserlohn Republic's military, Julian proved himself as a strategist and tactician. Declining to aid Oskar von Reuenthal in his rebellion, Julian allowed Imperial forces to transit through the Iserlohn Corridor, correctly deducing that supporting Reuenthal would be a mistake as the rebellion would not succeed. Subsequently Julian successfully defeated numerically superior Imperial forces at the Eleventh Battle of Iserlohn. At the Battle of Shiva he successfully penetrated the much larger Imperial fleet and led a boarding party onto Kaiser Reinhard's flagship, the Brünhild. Julian reached the Kaiser early on the morning of 1 June 801 UC and impressed Reinhard with his determination and eloquence, such that when Reinhard agreed to a cease-fire and negotiations with the Iserlohn Republic on equal footing.
