Character Creation Challenge 31 of 31, Adalwin Pethes

 
Completing the series, Adalwin Pethes is a less traditional Traveller character. Not much experience in space travel or operations, he's still ready to be a contact, adversary, or ally in the Sol Subsector.

Aldalwin "Call me Dall" Pethes is a man of some reputation in the region. He grew up on Ember/Sol, where his family grew some of what little locally available food was available in hydroponics facilities. Seeing the heavy handed treatment of the citizens by the Office of the Military Governor, he wanted to Change the System from within, by becoming a reporter. Gaining employment with Sol Interstellar News at an early age, he spent twenty years as an investigative reporter in and around the Subsector, exposing corrupt military government officers, investigating organized crime, and the like until he was injured while investigating work conditions on Loki. Recovering from his injury, he started to study the law, and became a crusading lawyer, often looking after those harming "the little guy". Some younger reporters, not knowing his background, have called him "The People's Attorney General of Sol Subsector." Crossing the subsector, he has a knack for showing up at the worst possible moment for many nobles, officers, and crime bosses. He recently stepped down from his firm's management, and is now listed as "Of Counsel".

  2. whew! we both made it! it has been an interesting challenge. I need to go back over my Big Wreck game I ran and bring in both of our SolSec people if I get to restart that game (2 of the 3 players said yes, the other I've not talked with since the pandemic as I only met him in our face to face sessions :( )

    The Big Wreck is labeled for those game recaps if anyone is interested: there are SolSec agents vs the players trying to get to the Mongoose Rift Big Wreck basically.

    1. Good luck. Remember, Colonel Popov has access to a type SC scout Courier, and a retired Navy Captain he's hot-racking with.
