Calls himself “Beta” because he has no memory of his past before age 27 and someday hopes to unlock the memories of his “Alpha” identity. He knows ‘who’ he was because of his documentation and e-trail: however he knows nothing of that person, and the fact that his parents have both passed on some years ago has not helped.

Service from the period he can’t remember: His papers list him working as a Mining Company Pilot Surveyor for 5 or 6 years, then as a drifter working odd Scavenger jobs until he was almost 28.

Service from his post amnesia period: Mars Colonial Settler until present.

Religion, lapsed Catholic.
