Born to a working class family on Regina/Regina, at the age of 18 he signed on to a free trader operating up and down the Spinward Main. Four years of hard work, and he established himself on the route and the ship. He gained impressive skills in persuasion, engineering, and space operations, as well as working to make sure he wouldn't tire out as quickly. Signing on for another term, he met Evan Georgesen, an Imperial Trade attaché at Ruie, one of his ship's regular ports, and continued his work as a free trader, picking up some blade training and working on persuading customers his trader would be the best for their needs. Keeping going, he ended up getting in a violent argument with Evan, leading to a bitter and lasting enmity. He kept up his status and training, learning a bit about everything, improving as a spaceman, and basic mechanical skills, seeing extensive duty as the engineer on a Beowulf-class free trader. His next period of time started out well, but trading into the Extents means wars can start over minor provocations. His ship was almost lost, but he managed to hold them together long enough to get back to Imperial Space. Taking his possessions, he signed up as a colonist on Forboldn/Regina for a while. While his first few years on the farm went well, and he became the local handyman, and caught up on some of his missing education, it just didn't sit well with him after a while. A major storm wiped out the village he was living at but an old Friend, Maj Bolens, was in the area, and helped him get back on his feet, and back to Regina. He's looking for work, and has a fair bit of credit built up. Maybe there's a crew ready for him again.
