  • (113-)1090
    Born. An only child, raised on Regina/Regina by his lower-class Vilani father, a farmer, and his Solomani wife. Both still live, at present.
  • 1104-1108: Hitchhiker Period
    Left home at 14 to “hitchhike” the sector, usually as working-passage; discovered a love for space & space travel, and astronautical things in general. Took many jobs in and around starships, including: deckhand, dockworker, downport vendor/entrepreneur
  • 1108-1112: Mercenary Period
    Recruited into [deep-space merc company]. After training, assigned to a long-term Fleet Security ticket providing shipboard security for at-risk supply vessels serving the Fifth Frontier War; assigned to [Vessel] for much of his contract. Aptitude for cargo management spotted relatively quickly, and so, frequently “loaned out” to the ship’s quartermaster. Ended up performing several different (non-security) jobs over the course of the contract.
  • 1112-1116: University Period
    Mustered out of the company on good terms; according to Vilani tradition, changed his second name to Haank, as he was known by his fellow mercs. Kept the beret. Attended Imperial Mora University; started working toward a BA in Business Administration, but after a disagreement with a professor prompted him to drop the class, shifted his studies to Xenolinguistics, for which he earned his degree.
  • 1116-1120: Entrepreneur Period
    Entrepreneurial ventures, usually centered around space travel and commerce, came & went; added ProFors instruction, ship engineer, ship captain, ship loadmaster, Lighter pilot/crewman, taxi driver, others, to his résumé. Developed a VR-training habit—constantly learning new skills and taking VR correspondence courses.
  • (117-)1120: Game Time
    Working for Neverfail Freight, LLC, on the Titanic VII as Loadmaster, on a regular supply run from Bevy to the Imperial colony on Kegena
