Name: Garen Arthur
Date of Birth: 2348
Characteristic elements: Swagger.Backstory
The middle child of three, Garen Arthur was born to Robert and Ariadne Arthur on Centaurus Prime. His older sister is Chira Arthur (now Abols), and he has a younger brother named Gabriel. Although Garen got along well enough with his siblings, he often found himself feeling on the outside looking in. Gabriel and Chira were closer to each other than they were to him.
Nevertheless, Garen's childhood was a full and happy one, even if he did tend to get in trouble more than the other two. The Arthur children spent most of their time growing up on both Centaurus, and Earth.
The end of adolescence found Garen feeling even more marginalized as Chira and Gabriel went off to live their own lives, gathering educational degrees and accolades. What Garen found himself with was a freighter ship, won in a game of high-stakes tongo. Garen quickly re-named the ship to the Plutonia
, and put most of his first few years worth of profit into upgrading the systems. Unfortunately, this caused several hardware inconsistencies, exacerbating the need for a real engineer. Fortunately
, Garen knew one recently graduated from the University of Virginia...his baby brother, Gabriel.
Garen and Gabriel worked together on the Plutonia
for a few years, with Garen taking care of their freight contracts while Gabriel quietly looked the other way at his brother's less-than-legal side business of running contraband. The brothers split amicably after a while, with Gabriel enlisting in Starfleet.
The conflagration of the Dominion War did not leave Garen untouched, even though he was smart enough to keep his ass out of the fire. Not that Garen didn't have a patriotic streak like any good Federation citizen...several of his contracts included running weapons for outlying colonies for their own defense.
These days, he finds himself keeping to the edges of Federation space. The new world forged by the war is a dangerous one, but it could also be profitable. It is not entirely by choice that Garen tends to stay close to the Starbase Athena
. Angering the Orion Syndicate tends to change one's outlook on most things.Career
