History

Aden Drake grew up with his family on the planet Showdown, on a farm just outside the farming town of Ten Paces Acre. Aden's youth was boring for lack of a better word. However his life would never be the same after an ill conceived purchase by his father. The small drone they used for crop dusting had broken down so Aden's dad, Dawthon, left for the city to either find a replacement drone or parts to repair the current one. Instead he returned with an extremely run down Scimitar Starfighter. Dawthon had wanted to use it as a replacement for the drone as well as a nice fix-me-up project. The ship came fairly cheap and was, relatively speaking, in good condition. However the onboard ai refused to function. Fortunately, Dawthon managed to get his old drone working but never stopped tinkering. For Aden it was love at first sight. Upon seeing it he commented that it looked like a dragonfly. Taking a liking to the name Dawthon dubbed it “Dragonfly”. It took a couple years, but in Aden's adolescence he accidentally discovered the solution. Aden had been studying the onboard computer when he noticed that a part with architecture unlike the rest of the ship. He unceremoniously ripped off the part. The ships systems sprang to life. With the Dragonfly flying again Aden and his father began trying to teach themselves to fly it. Aden loved it. The grease, the flying, the feeling of freedom. All of it and more. He quickly showed a knack for flying, quickly surpassing his father. The experience left Aden with a want to learn more of how to fly. So he joined the local naval academy. But when Aden joined the local navy academy he found something tragic. The academy was a rundown little school of no import, with teachers that didn't care and students that joined because they were too lazy to farm. After learning the basics he dropped out of the academy. Returning home he helped on the farm while refining his skills. After catching wind of a ship in need if a crew he bid farewell to his family, purchased some gear with his remaking funds, and set off for an uncertain future.
