Elisavet Tamar (Ally): Elisavet is an operative for the intelligence branch of the Royal Navy. A few years ago she recruited Burton for technical support on a difficult mission. The mission was very successful and she remains grateful to him for his assistance.

Burton was born and raised in a small moon colony. His parents were both technicians at the starport, and he grew up dreaming of traveling to the stars. When he was 18, Burton applied to the Royal Navy, but was denied due to his lower class background. Instead he was drafted into the local police force, where he soon made a name for himself as an excellent technician. A few years into his service, he was promoted and transferred to a larger world.

At the end of his mandatory service term, he applied to the Royal Versis Expeditionary Corp and was accepted. During the first year, Pratt traveled to most of the worlds and colonies on training flights. He became friends with Devalyn Ki, another new scout receiving similar training, and remained in contact with her even after they were assigned to separate branches. Pratt pursued his career with quiet dedication and competence earning one of the few promotions given to couriers.

Eventually he came to the attention of Elisavet Tamar, a naval intelligence officer. Tamar required assistance in gathering information related to some alien ambassadors, and Pratt's technical skills and law enforcement background made him a good choice for the job. The mission went flawlessly, and Pratt's performance impressed the agent. After the excitement of the covert operation, Burton found his courier duties tedious and at the end of the term resigned from active duty.

Burton Pratt (Scout) - Met during training cruises and became friends
Dr. Ray Morrison (Medic) - Met during rescue operations at a remote outpost, convinced Dr. Morrison to enter the Versis Expeditionary Corp.

Devalyn was born on a remote outpost in the Versis system. She served with her parents aboard an in-system freighter for several years, but after the chance to be on a Trade Expansion mission, her desire to see other stars caused her to join the VEC. During her shakedown cruises through known space, Devalyn met Burton Pratt another new scout and they became friends. They have stayed in touch through the years. During her second term in the Scouts, Devalyn's ship responded to an explosion at a remote outpost (the one she grew up on incidently, although her parents were not there at the time) and during the rescue operations, met Dr. Ray Morrison. She convinced him that the VEC needed his skills more than some lonely outpost and he joined. They have remained in touch ever since. Last year, Devalyn was set to explore a new star system and something happened. She doesn't know what, she has no memory for 1 month of her life. She is very concerned about this, as was the VEC, and they mutually agreed that it would be better if she left the service rather than be a security risk. As compensation, she received a Detached Duty Scout Ship and has invited her friends to join her as crew.

Even though Devalyn is no longer part of the official VEC, she is convinced that many missions will come her way as she and her crew can go places that Versis cannot officially send ships.

She has convinced her old friends to leave the Corps. Burt Pratt as her Astrogator and Dr. Ray as the ship's Medic. Now she just needs to find a Pilot that she can trust...

Devalyn is only about 5 feet tall, slender and weighs less than 100 lbs soaking wet (a phrase she HATES btw). She has black shoulder-length hair and startling gray eyes. She can easily pass as a young adult and has been carded at more than one spaceport bar to the amusement of her comrades.

Aurin is a fairly average-looking man: brown eyes, dark hair, 5'7". He was born on Caledonia (he pronounces it Kale Donya) after his mother had a brief affair with a nobleman; this nobleman took an interest in Aurin, and guided him into the scout service.

More history coming soon; none of the other players seemed to want to connect to my character so I'm going to have to think about how to write up his contacts (suggestions are welcome).

"Are you in charge here?"

"No, but I'm full of ideas!"

Also not a Dave.

Well, I have used my two connections, so I can't. HOWEVER, your character also spent time wandering from world to world, like Burton Pratt and Devalyn. Maybe you could Connect to Burton during that event as well.

Even without the Connection, our characters can still KNOW each other.
