The early years
An unexpected path
Born from possibly a joy girl, women known for living the high life but usually disposing of undesired pregnancies, Cordin was abandoned in a dark ally, still covered in the after birth of his entrance into the world. Cold and screaming he was found and later adopted by a much older Zeltron woman who had been passing the alley at the time. Shocked to find a baby boy dying of exposure, she took him in and quickly fell in love with him, while his DNA marked him to indeed some joy girl who plied her trade among the spacers who visit the Zeltron homeworld. His birth mother was quick to pass on all rights to Cordin to his adoptive mother, Tamia Siprus when she abandoned him. Naming the baby boy Cordin, a folk hero of legend that overcame great odds, she raised him in a relatively happy childhood where he gained a good education. Raised like a son, Cordin never felt left out and over time as he grew, he became a strong a intelligent young Zeltron. Developing friendships through could not replace his desire for something more. Seeking to replace that emptiness with something greater, as he grew Cordin got into speed racing.
Drawn by the lure of racing, Cordin got his first employment in a workshop that repaired standard vehicles and speeders alike. During this time he learned the ins and outs of how vehicles were made and began developing a reputation as a “Go to guy” for both repairs and customizations when it came to vehicles. In time as Cordin became renown in his area, he began working on building vehicles from scratch. Building and repairing vehicles earned him enough income to begin building his own speeders and it was not too long after that, that with his four closest friends he began a speeder group that became known as “The Zelriders.” Piloting around the local speed ways for the next few years quickly earned the interests of many and soon his group grew in size. On and off the track the Zelriders were known for their dangerous maneuvers and exotic speeders, all made possibly by Cordin Siprus.
After his adoptive mother died of a rare illness when Cordin was but 20 standard years of age, unable to fight its onset due to advanced aging, the emotionally shattered Cordin broke away from his Zelriders and sought solace in being alone. The Zelriders though could not let one of their leaders diminish from the group, and like the adoptive mother he had before, they became his adoptive family. Riding brought solace, and with that he was joined with his Zelriders who began to look up to him as more than just the leader of their group but as the kind of leader you look up to. Overcoming his mother’s death put Cordin on a hard road, but that road molded him into the man he was to become.
His recent loss shook him up and soon after Cordin decided that it was time to leave Zeltros and explore new worlds and meet new people. As months wend on his idea spread through is fellow “Zelriders” and one year later they were all inside a freighter and on their way to a nearby system.

Lift to Centurion
Cordin and the other remaining Zeltron decided to go their separate ways, swearing never to speak of what happen to the remaining “Zelriders” on that day. Lost and shaken by the events that took place Cordin rode to a nearby starport to get transported somewhere else. As he arrived at the starport the Zeltron´s eyes noticed a medium-size freighter that had written on the side Centurion Arms. Noticing a humanoid figure next to the ships entrance Cordin approached and faced a well dressed man in is forties. "Are you the owner of this ship? "I wish I was, but no I work for CA and I am just delivering some merchandise here." replied the pilot. Looking at the ships logo again Cordin asked. "Is your company hiring personnel? "We are always looking for hardworking people, do you fit the profile?" The man said as he expressed a small smile. "I do what needs to be done and I dont stop until it is so, is that good enough?" Promptly Cordin answered. "Good enough for me at least, lets talk inside." The man told him as he led the way inside the ship. A few hours later and with his speeder inside the ship, the Zeltron left the forsaken planet never to come back again.
The leader of Centurion Arms after a long talk with Cordin decided to take him in and give him a job. The first months where spent in the production factories learning how all was done and then he was moved to the delivery department. Month after month he kept learning and working as hard as he could until a few years later he became the XO of the faction. The Zeltron enjoyed his job but the fact that the faction’s leader never did trust him fully started to take a weight on him and he finally deiced it was time to leave.
Knowing Chester Ridding from his time in CA, Cordin decided to talk to his friend and wend he did Chester made him an invitation to start an adventure with him... creating a shipbuilding firm.
The new years
(Work in progress)
He wasn’t without a job for long as a customer of Centurions Arms eared he had left and reached out to him to make him a proposal. What Chester Riddick had in mind was to partner up with Cordin to create a ship building faction and it didn’t take much to convince the young Zeltron. The planning and preparation started right away and month’s later production had started in the first of more to come shipyards. All went well for some years until the crisis hit and the production and sale of ships started to slow down and almost stop, what forced the two leaders to decide what to do next. Sadly there was a difference of opinion regarding what they should do, while Chester wanted to carry on with production Cordin was sure things wouldn’t change any time soon and that it was a mistake to continue so he decided to sell he´s part of the company to his partner and go on a different path…
