History

He was born on the Rigel Colony growing up with merchants and traders. He grew up and immediately learned to be a pilot at the hands of those same traders, doing odd jobs and learning what he could. Eventually he became a freelance trader himself. He got married at the age of 16 and had 2 children. He tried to stand up to the mob in his early 20’s and demand they stop asking for protection money. This failed he they put a bounty on his head, so he had to run.

He often thinks about trying to stand up to the mob and while it grates him, he wishes that he’d just paid the money. Blames himself for failing to protect his family and so far as he knows, that bounty is still on his head.
