Tyler Kennard was a politician from Maverick in the Angels Republic. He began his political career early on, becoming the representative of his home district in 2029. In 2035, he became a senator from Maverick. He was a childhood friend of Parker Matthews, Abigail Mason's husband. Mason and Matthews wrote to Senator Kennard in 2039, offering to be her Vice President. He accepted, and would become Vice President in 2041. He played a part in the 2054 coup against Adrian Calvert. He became Vice President again under Ron Breckenridge in 2056, but the relationship between the two would become sour, so he did not run with Breckenridge in the election of 2059. Throughout the Californian Civil War, Kennard would support the Republic against the CFS.
