Sir Zimzod Egosion
Here is a brief look at Sir Zimzod Egosion's history.

Zimzod      Sir Zimzod Egosion is the ship's Executive Officer, as well
as the crew's dirtside operations Commander. A veteran
of the Fifth Frontier War, Zimzod's career saw him serving
in the Imperial Navy, Imperial Army and Imperial Marine Corp.

Sir Zimzod received his Knighthood from the Duke of the Vilis
Subsector, and has received full confirmation of his title.  He
has gained notoriety due to his arrogant behavior in some
quarters.

Aboard ship, Zimzod helps where he can though his main skills
are gunnery related.  So, in an emergency, Zimzod can be
found either in one of the ship's turrets or as part of any anti-
border actions the crew might need to mount.

 
 

1078

     Zimzod Egosion was born to a parts scavenger and former pirate in the Pimane system(Mora).  Pimane is a played out mining post the miners have left.  A link on The Spinward Main, ships generally make for a gas giants.  The port has ground mostly to a halt.  Serviced by a trickle of Free traders, life on Pimane is tough and people are hard and cooperation is highly valued.  A vacuum world, Pimane's environmental systems are supported by contracted off worlders and all are drilled in containment loss.

Aside from the odd trader or Scout, anti-Pirate runs by Imperial Navy and Marine forces, Pimane won't ask questions if a "generous" captain pulls into port.  Ship's can lay low making repairs in exchange for that which the world can use or never afford but Pimanians won't protect pirates if a patrol arrives.  Zimzod's family claimed the upper edge of his home community's lower classes.

Unhappy with being stepped on, Zimzod couldn't pay to get to any Imperial Recruiting stations and was drafted into The Imperial Navy.  For training, he was brought to The Palique System(Mora).
