After Carter Sanders fought with a Kravan on his first field exercise on Nirvana and defeated it, he tore a fang out of the beast’s mouth. This souvenir should always remind him that one often barely escaped death and should appreciate life.
Years later, during the training with the T’zun war monks, when he received a red bracelet symbolic for the order and its philosophy, an idea came to him. With the help of Holon, he combined both pieces into a necklace to replace his earlier dog tags. It unites memories of his training on Osilon and Dao Prime and has since served as the Commander’s identification mark.
