Jack Jones was a famous CAF fleet officer and a hero in times past. He used to be a fighter pilot and with just a squadron of twelve fighters, he was able to stop four Berserker class patrol ships from destroying six transports that were moving civilians from a war zone. Unfortunately, he did not know when to keep his mouth shut. Like most people from the CAF, he knew that they were not pirates like claimed, and were actually ships of the Trans-Galactic Empire. He said this loudly whenever he had the opportunity. He said it to his juniors, to his senior officers, to politicians, and to even the media. While likely true, the powers in control of the Consortium got tired of it and he got dismissed from service.
This sudden event sent his whole like into a downward spiral and he climbed into a bottle and tried to forget everything in that bottle. He had a limited pension and that payed for his alcohol. He might have dies drunk one day if it was not for the fact the fact that events again grabbed him. This time of a more personal nature. He had gotten a lady pregnant one day and soon after having the child, a gorgeous baby girl, the women got killed in an alley. Jack was always a very good man and could not just abandon the girl. He pulled himself out of the bottle and never has taken a drink.
His tiny pension would never be enough to support his daughter in any decency so he when back to the only job he knew. He served in many positions on many different ships, never too proud to take a job and very protective of his daughter. He worked on freighters, liners, tugs, and even trash ships. His daughter got older and he found that she loved space as well. Recently, he realized that he wanted more, a shelter for himself when he got old and so his daughter has to not work so hard. He and his daughter joined a small and new company, sinking most of their savings into the company.
