CONFEDERATION DOSSIER

Background

Born on McAuliffe, to a family of reasonable wealth, owners of a successful freight trading and transport company.
Tragedy struck at a young age; His father was killed in the McAuliffe Ambush, docked aboard Alexandria Station when the Kilrathi attacked. His mother took her infant son and fled to Oxford, Gemini to take refuge, moving to the home of her brother-in-law, Ian's uncle.

Where his father had been the heir to the family business, his uncle was the typical prodigal son. Although his skills as a businessman were a close match to his brother's, the family name held little weight in the frontier, and with lawlessness and corruption rampant, the Gemini division of the company was a mere shell of its brethren. With a penchant for women, gambling, and the material, his debts outstripped his means.

For Ian, school was good for two things: lunch and the rugby field. Classes were just what happened in between times. While not unintelligent, classroom learning was at odds with his more hands-on learning style. He maintained good grades in gym class, and decent grades in metalwork, but his performance in the more bookish subjects was consistently poor. At the age of 16, he was quick to drop out of high school when given the opportunity to work for the family. As was family tradition, he started at the bottom, loading and unloading cargo, but he was to work his way up and learn the business as a whole, under the tutelage of his uncle.

So it continued for several years. During which time, debts continued to mount. His uncle became increasingly desperate, and resorted to decreasingly legal ways to fund his habits. Eventually, loan sharks started to push in on the business, and it became little more than a front for unscrupulous activities. Ian, caught in the middle, had little choice but to submit to becoming a pawn in the Gemini power game.

This power struggle culminated in the elaborate and 'almost successful' attempt to assassinate Roman Lynch. The plan went disastrously awry at the last moment; Lynch's kid sister handled the explosive birthday gift instead. Lynch's vengeance was swift and brutal. Guilty by association, Ian fled for his life, hiding aboard a Drayman bound for Sol. He enlisted in the Marine Corps immediately upon arrival, hoping the Confederation would be a powerful enough shield to hide behind.

In training, it became apparent that he had a knack for shooting, qualifying at sharpshooter level with laser weaponry. This, combined with high physical fitness scores, made him a candidate for Recon school. With the determination that he couldn't run again, he endured the further months of physical and mental punishment, and made the cut.
