Caradryad Sector Rogue Trader
Skilled with both the pistol and wealth.
Alt was born on Caligra, an ice planet that is located outside of the Caradryad Sector. Caligra was considered a Death World from it’s harsh cold temperatures, low amounts of sustainable food, and some dangerous animals. However, what the planet was most known for was it’s mines of a ore used to create admantium for ships, blast doors, and fortifications. The governor soon became very greedy of the wealth the planet pulled in and left the citizens poor and destitute. Alt was born into the this world of impoverishment.
Orphaned as a young child when his parents were killed in a mine collapse, Alt was taken in by one of the many miner gangs. Here, he learned how to use both is strength and his wit to survive. Here, he learned the importance that information could give to a person. Alt and his gang soon uncovered evidence of the governors corruption, showing of how much money the planet made, something the governor wanted to keep secret from the citizens so he could live in absolute luxury without inciting a revolt. Armed with this knowledge as well as the peoples discontent, Alt and his gang lead the miners and other gangs into a revolt against the governor and his PDF.
The rebellion was large and the fighting was fierce, and it was obvious that rebels would ultimately overthrow the governor and his forces. The scribes of the Imperium however noticed that all the ore shipments from Caligra has ceased. Just as victory seemed assured, the Hammer of the Imperium descended onto Caligra. Several regiments of the Imperial Guard slaughtered the resistance. Clemency was offered to those that sold out the leaders of the resistance movement. In danger, Alt and his gang decided to sneak off the planet and meet up with one of the gangs offworld smugglers to get them out of the system. The Navy, however got wind of their plan, possibly through one of the lower members wanting to escape death. The Navy ships opened up on the gang’s transport, destroying it in a few salvos. Where the rest of his friends died, Alt escaped via an escape vessel.
No one knew how long he drifted out in space before he was finally picked-up, but he was found dehydrated, starving, and oxygen practically ran dry. Alt was found by a transport of merchants. Guessing but not asking where he was from, the merchants took him in. Here, he learned about business and how to sweet talk a deal, however he also took the lessons he learned back on Caligra and coupled his new found business smarts with his paranoia of people, he soon created a lucrative shadow network of spies on the ship and abroad. This actually gave the merchants quite a boon with money, largely by uncovering dirt on dealers for lower prices and bullying higher prices out of their buyers. His secret network has let him work a shadow war destroying other merchants and some major figures reputation and businesses.
The merchants made their way to the Caradryad sector, both for the business opportunity as well as getting Alt away from Caligra, where people may still be looking for him. Even though he left the area, Alt has always been proud of his involvement in the rebellion as well as all of his dealing. Whether this will bring him to unnecessary trouble or not remains to be seen.
