Like many Chandrilan Humans, Mazen was born on a farm and born to be a farmer. His parents operated a considerable farm not far from the Gladean State Parks system. Like his elder brother, Alec, Mazen was schooled alongside other "farm kids" who lived on neighboring settlements, though none were particularly close-by. It was simply understood that Mazen would someday inherit the family farm; just the same, he was allowed to take piloting lessons which would later play heavily into his career choice.
Just out of school, Mazen met the first love of his life, Cela Aronson. A fellow Chandrilan, Cela had grown up in Hanna City, the daughter of merchant parents. Tall, slight and blonde, they made a handsome couple. They'd met at a party and very quickly fell for each other. Cela moved to the country to live with Mazen. The couple soon wed and took on the responsibilities of the family's farm. Cela was pregnant not much later with their first and only son, Adum.
To help make ends meet, Mazen joined the Chandrilan Air Defense Squadron as a pilot. This was a critical move in Mazen's life for it would be a stepping stone in one way and the source of his grief as well. While Mazen was away on a training and maneuvers run with his fellow CADS pilots on the opposite side of the planet, an Imperial attack had strafed the countryside where his wife and son still lived. Their home, and its inhabitants, were destroyed.
