This is a thread to post your pilots IC background. If you want to do it anonymously (i.e. you don't want to build separate forum accounts for different pilot callsigns and don't want your alts known), send it to me via e-mail (you can use a throwaway account) firstname.lastname@example.org and Fence will post it here for you. Then at some future time if you see him, /give him 50k in space. I am from Trivera, the over-crowded capital city of Ares Prime, host planet of Oct Core station. Orphaned early in life, I finally got tired of the urban street life (sewer life more like), and feeling the pinch from yet another famine several years back, I signed up with TRI to finally make some coin and a name for myself as an information mercenary. I'm an Oct, so I know how to fight, but I prefer to remain behind the scenes. My clients like it that way. See, many people make the mistake of thinking that all Octs are gun-toting slugs. But I'd say that's just ignorant stereotyping. My first real paying gig in space was disseminating information about those crazy Ad Infinitum bots. After that, I worked for both sides of an internal Hyperial struggle (that was nuts) several times, which would often pit Quantar forces against Sol, Oct or mercenary fleets. I started my own Unregulated Unaffiliated News Net to report on events I see (and sometimes have a hand in) while in space. Then later on, I helped those Pre-Collapse Solrains with similar names find some friends. Most recently, I was hired to convert the Brotherhood Olympics into something that all of TRI could enjoy. Putting a friendly, non-factional and non-judgmental face on things (when paid properly, of course) is what I do best, I guess.
