Additional Information

Corporal Venner is one of the surviving Colonial Marines aboard Galactica. As a native of Gemenon, Venner is a very religious man and believes in President Roslin as a prophet sent by the Lords of Kobol.

Venner was in charge of guarding Roslin while she was imprisoned in the brig after Commmander Adama terminated her presidency and arrested her. Venner asked that she pray with him during a Cylon attack (Scattered). He carries a set of white prayer beads.

Soon after, Galactica was boarded by Cylon Centurions, and Lee Adama ordered Venner to lead Roslin to Sickbay and to safety. While making their way through the ship, they were nearly killed in a run in with the Centurions (Valley of Darkness).

While in the brig, Roslin was suffering from Chamalla withdrawal. Her aide, Billy Keikeya, asked for Venner's help in smuggling some of the medication for her into the brig (Fragged).

Venner is apparently recruited by Keikeya in the plot to free Roslin (Resistance). He participates in Roslin's escape from Galactica by pretending to be the victim of an assault that frees Roslin from the brig.
