History-
Born on a world beyond the trailing side of the Imperium, Brown Fox (the closest Galanglic equivalent of his name), was raised as a horse (local equivalent) archer, learning to ride and hunt from a very early age. During one hunt he was injured badly enough to leave a scar on the right side of his neck. Brown Fox will gladly tell you the story if you ask him and buy him a drink. One year his world was visited by a Scout ship, changing his life forever. Enthralled by the Scout's tales of other worlds to hunt on Brown Fox became a guide for the Scout and her crew and often joined them in surveying the neighboring systems.

However, duty and honor still bound him to home and the Scout eventually finished her survey and moved on. The honor of serving with the outworlders and his skill as a huntsmen earned him a place in his King's guard where he served with distinction. He wears a curious charm around his neck that, again, he is more than happy to tell you the story of. During this time he also learned as much as could from the King's library and advisors about the worlds above the sky and tried to teach himself Galanglic with a device the scout left behind.

About four years later more ships arrived from the sky. A science team had arrived to investigate rumors of a mysterious Ancient artifact somewhere in the area. Brown Fox soon befriended the team and they took him offplanet after their search found nothing substantial. Since then he has worked for their patron, the Baron Jean-Claude Khaashaarii, eventually working for the Baron directly after several years exploring and hunting on many worlds and learning his way around a ship.

He's worked long enough on Rikhani to want to go offplanet yet again.

His nickname was given to him by one of the scientific crew with an interest in ancient Greece. The "horse" tribes reminded him of Herodotus' tales of the Skythians. The nickname stuck because it was easier to pronounce than Brown Fox's real name. (he didn't learn the Galanglic translation of his name until later)

Kevin left the game, but I left an opening for him (and Brown Fox) come back. Kevin was a fun asset to the game.
