Augustus Dietrich was born into the role of sole heir to a small local business empire in the first quarter of AF 251. His mother left a few weeks after, leaving his father – Friedrik Dietrich – to raise him alone. By the age of two (In Abwehran Years) Augustus was an articulate, athletic young boy who had taken to the sword and to healthy discussion of any and every topic from politics to what was to be had for dinner. Throughout his remaining three Abwehran Years as a child, Augustus studied to follow in his father's footsteps. He learned Abwehran History, Economics, and of Abwehran Society.
When Augustus became a legal adult in AF 256, he joined the Abwehran Armed Forces (AAF). He left the AAF in mid AF 258 when his father died, and he inherited the few small businesses that were owned by his father. Once finished mourning his father, Augustus began expanding his businesses, and accumulating a vast sum of wealth under him. This is also when he began involving himself in political matters. Finally, first contact with the Yamatai Star Empire spurred him into action in AF 259, and he announced his campaign for an open House of Representatives seat.
By the end of the first quarter of AF 260, Augustus had taken the seat he had set out to sieze four quarters prior.
The Family Business began in AF 239, about a year after the Pirate Wars began. Augustus' father took out a loan, and set to work. His first move was to buy up a large local restaurant. By AF 242, Friedrik Dietrich had payed off the loan, and gained enough funds to expand. He constructed a hardware store under a national franchise, and after that began to show profit he bought another restaurant. By AF 250, he owned a dozen Fast Food locations, two restaurants, and a hardware store. And then Friedrik met Augustus' mother. The how, or why of it was never explained to Augustus, but Friedrik was devastated when the future Mrs. Dietrich ran away. He turned to take care of his son, and over the course of Augustus' childhood neglected his duty as an economic power. By AF 257, the Dietrich family owned only the hardware store and restaurant.
In AF 258, Augustus inherited the businesses his father had owned. He then set to expansion with his inheritance money and the saved funds from his brief military career. Now, in AF 260 everything his father had previously owned, with the addition of the expansion of a new Hardware Store franchise, Augustus readies himself for the next step into the economic world.
Dietrich founded the Dietrich Starkwerk Corporation, and after great success in the military-industrial complex of the Abwehran Star Empire, expanded his base of financial power into electronics, automobiles, and more. Within a very short time Dietrich became one of the wealthiest men in the Empire.
Soon, though, the Second Mishhuvurthyar war and the fall of the UOC called Dietrich into action as – of all things – a humanitarian. Throwing away several fortunes' worth of money, Dietrich headed a rescue effort that helped to break the dead lock of the war and save millions of UOC civilian lives.
He returned to his creation tired and frustrated; his humanitarian aid would continue, but he needed to lead his business. His first order of business was to put a leash on the runaway business executive he had left in charge; he fired the man for wasting more money and entering DSW into a binding agreement with a small alien nation. Unable to back out, Dietrich became determined to pull a profit out of the gamjie_corporate_zone, beginning with redoubled efforts to establish a working industrial base.

On top of his training in the use of standard Ship-Board computer operating systems and skinsuits, Augustus Dietrich can use most modern Abwehran devices due to his wide array of small businesses. He is constantly using communications devices and organizational data systems.
