Summary: Eugene is motivated by revenge upon the Rouge Trader Jarrion Streveler. During adolescence Streveler’s press gang teams enslaved him and his childhood friend/first love Luna. Eugene seeks her out among the vast stars and intends to punish Streveler. To achieve his ends Eugene intends to climb to the top of the criminal underworld.
Eugene was the second child of his 5 siblings born in August. His mother and father were originally pilgrims who were stranded on Sinophia. Growing up his family were laborers in a factory. His parents told him during a parade he was actually blessed by the arch-bishop
- himself. Seven days later his hair grew in pure snow white. Growing up he would sometimes catch his mother and father whispering in argumentative tones about something which happened long ago. When he would ask about it they would always refuse to tell him.
When Eugene was 11 his family became involved in a labor revolt against the Sinophian government. His eldest brother, a laborer at the time was killed during the riots. The revolt was crushed and the factory shut down. Eugene’s family became dregs forced to live on the fringes of society scrabbling for food scraps. During this time Eugene’s mother instructed him to dye his hair in order to draw less attention to himself.
At age 14 Eugene met a girl named Luna, a fellow dreg. Together they stole, laughed, and survived within the lower habs.
At age 18 they were caught by a Rouge Trader press gang. Being dregs without the protection of a Lord or Baron they were taken aboard as labor hands and processed. Crammed together with thousands of other captured dregs aboard the Rouge Traders ship they promised to find each other and escape. Luna gives her gold heart locket to Eugene containing her eyelash. And Luna keeps a locket of Eugene’s silver hair. They are soon are separated. In a desperate attempt to say together Eugene strikes a quarter master of the ship. For this, he is assigned to certain doom: Darkhold Security.
Under the quarter master’s direction Eugene undergoes painful surgeries which install Electrografts to interface with the ship. Among the Darkhold Kill Teams he develops into a man. Growing up with a group of hard bitten criminals and killers assigned to hunt down mutants who infest the ships lower level abandoned holds. Eugene learns how to survive aboard the ship learning to steal, fight, and deal without getting caught. He uses his Electrograft’s to bypass security and gain access to goods otherwise unobtainable by his new family. Though Eugene searches many times for Luna aboard the ship he never sees her again.
The years fighting the horrors of the Darkholds all the while enduring the cruelty of his enslavers aboard the Star Serpent have left marks both physical and mental on Eugene.
The heavy handed punishments and poor treatment caused Eugene to develop a hatred for the Rouge Trader and authorities who wronged him. When he commits his numerous crimes feels he is punishing those who robbed him of his freedoms and his love.
After 5 years aboard the Star Serpent Eugene’s unit is used as a suicide unit. The controller attracts dozens of the Darkhold creatures to a prime location before decompressing the section killing dozens of the creatures and decimating Eugene’s unit. Trapped within the Darkholds, Eugene along with Jayden the only other survivor of his unit, attempt to escape. Traveling one of the forgotten passages within the Darkhold Eugene finds an ancient amulet.
On the seventh day trapped within the Darkholds the Star Serpent docks with a space station in orbit around Scintilla. Out of sheer luck the pair manages to escape onto the station as free men and arrive planetside in Hive Tarsus hidden in shipping containers. Eugene vows to discover the fate of his lost love Luna and kill the Rouge Trader Jarrion Streveler who he holds responsible for his woes. To achieve his ends Eugene intends to climb to the top of the criminal underworld using his skills learned aboard the Star Serpent.
