Pre-RP

The Apaway's come from a long line of pioneers. Colony life was in their veins. Needless to say, growing up on Delsauria gave him the opportunity to be outside all the time. He would often accompany his father on long walks through the deserts and mountains.

Tragedy struck when Daniel's father became sick. The family struggled for several years, having to sell over 75 percent of their meager land to survive. Daniel took to hunting in the last scraps of the Delsaurian wilderness to supplement the family's income.

Sadly, James succumbed to his sickness. The family was devastated. Daniel took to spending more time outdoors. He caught wind of nearby colonies and fresh opportunities for hunting. He would hop a cheap flight, hunt as he could and send the proceeds back to his mother and sister. He got the chance to test himself in many different locations.

It was one such hunting trip to Gartaga that changed Daniel's life drastically. He was in the wilds of Gartaga hunting, when a wild Shosho attacked suddenly. A wrestling match ensued but Daniel, being both surprised and weaker than an adolescent Shosho, ended up with his right arm torn off. Bleeding profusely and close to death Daniel was able to survive by shooting the Shosho with his left hand. The shot did not kill the Shosho but put it in the same situation as Daniel.

Luckily another member of the hunting party arrived and was able to staunch the bleeding and savw Daniel's life. As the other hunter turned to finish off the Shosho, Daniel stopped him and told him to take the injured incapacitated lizard with them. After weeks of recovery and a cybernetic arm replacement Daniel was able to face his attacker again. He tamed that Shosho and even bought a younger Shosho to train. The larger was named Molly and the younger was named Irma. The lizards have been loyal though unconventional companions since then.

Although a big help, the work was not steady enough and soon Daniel turned to a more violent and dangerous line of work. He brought his significant skill in marksmanship, hunting and tracking to a mercenary life. He still, however, sends half his funds back to his family to assist them.
