Early LifeEdit

The Good KidEdit

Born on Corulag, Vanden's parents raised him to be strong-willed and independent from the beginning. It worked for the most part, until his grandfather - a clone of Max-Tex - passed away and left his family with whatever small fortune he managed to earn as a mercenary. Among the possessions given to them was an apparently Human servant named simply "Hatheway" who would tell stories of his ancestors. It left a deep impression on the boy and he committed himself to wanting to go further than his grandfather ever made it. He was completely unaware of what kind of life was expected of him. This often led to rather nasty schoolyard fights with bullies. Although he would win almost every time, his repeated offenses forced his parents to induct him into a bording school. It caused Van to run away from home at ten years old and take the next outbound flight to Corellia. At fifteen he was already an accomplished smuggler that knew the ins-and-outs of the CorSec patrol system and ran spice for dealers in Coronet.

Let the Bad Times RollEdit

Although one to brag, Van never much liked to talk about his family. He avoided them as much as he could and provided for himself and himself only. Smuggling soon lost its appeal and he moved onto smaller mercenary jobs. There was always a need for bounty hunters and, after being so enamored with tales of his forebearers, he jumped headlong into it. He was terribly far from perfect, however, and once or twice it had nearly cost him his life. He's looking into changing that.


More often cocky and arrogant, Vanden is your average undisciplined mercenary. With no prior military experience he has thrown himself head-first into the bounty hunting spotlight with the belief that his family name will provide everything he needs. Van speaks with an altered dialect of Basic similar to backwater Corellians. He often smokes cigarras whenever he has the time or whenever he needs to irritate someone with the smoke they produce. Despite the jerk attitude and overall wanton disregard towards law and authority, he is genuinely brave and somewhat honorable to others.
