It is a truth universally acknowledged, as someone once said, that a man in possession of a decent ship and a bit of attitude can make his fortune trading across the known worlds. I should know; I’ve been in the business for twenty years.
I always wanted to work for myself, and as soon as I had the resources I set up as a trader; running errands and goods across the galaxy for the rich and desperate. I soon learnt the most important lesson in my business; the more precious the cargo, the more money you can make.
Of course, where there is money there are villains: pirates, kidnappers, bounty hunters. I don’t resent these people; they keep my fees high and my life interesting. I get on well enough with them at social events.
