A Rough Beginning
Born to loving parents, forced into the underground world by the Galactic Empire; Galen Darksol learned to exceed the expectations of his generation.
The Finite Youth
Like many of his pod-mates, Galen spent his youth swimming in the seemingly endless oceans of Giju. However, he would often look skyward and dream of one day reaching the bright points of light beyond his home. Frequently, he would ponder the ancestral stories of when his people governed a small but peaceful empire. Looking to the stars, Galen would ponder and dream of a life beyond while his siblings would focus on playing all about. The joy of youth though is but a finite time.
That finite time ended as an older youth, Galen would witness the arrival of the despotic Empire their ruthless annexation of his peoples' industries. While young, he saw his people suffer under the not so proverbial lash of the Galactic Empire. Driven to crime, a large portion of his youth was spent beneath the planet's surface smuggling Herglic food to those in great need while trying to avoid the tireless Imperial recruitment patrols searching for "volunteers." Ultimately he was found by such a patrol, with food (cookies) in hand that he was not authorized to carry. Force marched back with a few other youths he was given the choice few others would get; join the Imperial Academy and leave his homeworld or remain on his homeworld and work in the factories. Seeing opportunity among the stars, Galen was the only one of those who were caught who saught to join the ranks of Imperial forces, the rest were regulated to the grind of the factory, none of whom Galen ever heard from ever again.
Escape to Freedom's Door
Galen’s brief time at the Imperial Academy was spent in training. It took Galen all of a week to realize that life in the Empire was not for him. He did not mind structure or discipline, but the constant grind of saluting, bowing, and groveling was something he could not stomach. Especially among a humanistic organization where he was considered scum even though he wore their uniform. During a training mission where he was to return to the sector of his homeworld, Galen was left alone to guard a fence at the edge of a dense forest. Using his bulk, he forced his way through the thin fence and slipped into the forest beyond it. Hours on the run, he was surprised that Imperial gunships were not in pursuit, but even though Galen realized the Empire considered him worthless, he knew they would eventually come for him and make an 'example' of him. So Galen kept running further and further from his Imperial post until at the edge of the forest he found a large clearing with a small deserted landing pad. Inside an old but functional communications terminal Galen found his freedom. Smart enough to avoid Imperial frequencies, Galen contacted a local Herglic smuggler who graciously helped Galen escape to an unaffiliated trading station in neutral space.
A Rebel in the Making
A fugitive on the run seeking succor from his past, finds himself a path that only the will of the Force could have predicted.
On the trading station, now a fugitive from the Galactic Empire, Galen browsed the advertisements for employment. Remembering the dreams of his youth, he narrowed his selection to two prominent ship manufacturers: Incom Corporation and Falleen Naval Contracts. Impressed by the ship designs held by both groups and convinced that either would be an excellent choice, Galen closed his eyes and pointed, letting fate guide his hand to Incom Corporation. He was readily accepted by then CEO Cyrus Vasch. Soon thereafter, Galen boarded a ship to New Republic space.
Ascension to Leadership
Galen was happy working for Incom Corporation as it was far less confining than the Imperial Academy. After a few promotions, Galen sought a change in duties and transferred to Juganoth Mining Corporation. After a time, he was invited back to serve as second-in-command of Incom Corporation by then CEO Harton Mash. After the retirement of Harton, Galen was appointed CEO of Incom Corporation, a position for which Galen still considers himself unworthy.
Senator to Unknown
Outside of Incom Corporation, Galen found favor within the New Republic and was even elected Senator on several occasions. Grateful for the freedom of the New Republic, Galen volunteered to search the galaxy during the Unknown Signal event, and after personally locating one of the disabled vessels Galen received a YT-510 from the New Republic. Naturally, Galen renamed the YT frigate “Meredian Scout.”
Nowadays, Galen travels where he is needed to further the cause of the New Republic and her allies. He longs to one day liberate his people from the grips of the Empire and invite them to join him among the stars.
