Character Intro / Background:

David Harper was born on a pleasant, settled world, to nice, normal parents who provided an agreeable childhood. By high school, he was good student and a good athlete with passable good looks who everyone expected to become a sensible college student and then a lawyer or accountant or some such. But, David was bored and on graduation he walked out and enlisted in the Marines.

He was so taken with it that he volunteered for the commando’s first chance he had. The Marines were also enamored with him, as he rose to the rank of Sergeant Major by the age of 31. The enthusiasm, and hard work, of the young man was noticed by many, including now Fleet Admiral Solomon Bart who did his best to get the young Marine assigned to his ships as often as possible.

On the flip side was Philippe Martinez, who is the grandson of Ernesto Martinez. Ernesto led his family to wealth on the interstellar stage primarily trading wines, ports, brandies, and other such products grown on their family vineyard and home world. It was decided that it was time to place one of the family into a position of power in the military.

Philippe was chosen to some extent because he was felt to be unsuited for most other tasks. Unfortunately, he was also unsuited for this and became a poster child for the spoiled, rich kid abusing his position and power. He sought out qualified lesser ranked personnel and dumped all the work and danger on them while he made sure to collect all of the glory for any success while passing down the blame of any failure. Philippe also pushed for the easiest duties he could find, police duties being a favorite.

Philippe sought out Harper as often as possible.

One day, Philippe disappeared from base, again. Harper went out with two young privates to retrieve him, presumably from indulging in one or more of his unsavory vices, as had happened many times before. This time, Harper finally tracked Philippe down to a single family residence in the poorer section of town. Leaving the privates outside, Harper proceeded inside alone. The privates later reported that, after waiting a few minutes, they heard the Sgt. Major yelling and then the sounds of a beating. Not a fight, a beating. This went on for several minutes, until Philippe exited the building though the front window, bleeding profusely and with multiple broken bones and internal injuries.

Harper came out the front door, fire in his eyes and blood on his hands. After looking things over, he ordered the privates to carry Philippe back to the base. Harper proceeded back inside and later that night the building burnt to the ground with the father, mother, and three young daughters still inside. The fire was ruled to be due to an electrical defect.

Harper was placed up on charges of attempted murder of a superior officer. Harper stated that he would give a full confession of his crime but only in the presence of the three officers of the Courts Martial Board and with no one else present. The confession was marked top secret and his communicator, with photographic capability, was similarly secreted away. Harper’s charges were reduced to striking a superior officer, and he was given the minimum sentence of five years in an Imperial Military Prison.

One member of the Board purchased Harper a High Passage so that he could go wherever he wanted after his imprisonment. Another "interested party", tracked his imprisonment and, upon his release, paid for his transport to Rhylanor, with the purpose of getting him employed. Also, Admiral Bart bought him a membership to the Traveler’s Aid Society (TAS). As for Philippe... well, he could never get medically re-certified as fit for duty and was mustered out of service.
