Name: Eddie Naman
Birthplace: On the family freighter in-transit between Earth and Mars.
History: Eddie was raised alone with his father after his mother died of complications during his birth. When told that her death could have been prevented if she had been in a modern medical facility, Eddie's father simply frowned and took the infant back to his Freighter.
Eddie was put to work young, as his father needed the money to keep the ship running and to keep them fed. It also didn't hurt that having Eddie work was a surefire way to keep him from getting into trouble. Of course, there was the occasional accident, and Eddie would make it to the station with a broken arm, or a bad burn, but nothing life threatening.
Eventually, as Eddie got older, he began to long for contact with other people, but the work he and his father did always took precedence over having a social life. As time passed, Eddie began to resent what he considered his father's emotional blackmail. Every time he brought up getting his own ship and seeing the colonies, his father would immediately start to list all the parts the ship needed, and how brittle his old bones felt. It was only a matter of time before they had a falling out.
After the inevitable argument, Eddie took the small savings he had been setting aside and left his father's ship. After buying a small junker ship, Eddie began to take small repair jobs to get the money he needed to make critical repairs to the craft.
Growing up in space took it's toll on the young man though. His bones and circulatory system are weaker than someone who grew up on-planet, as the artificial gravity in their ship was barely a fifth of Earth's. His current ship is totally without gravity of any kind. He intends to repair the maneuvering thrusters to the point where he can put the ship into a spin that would simulate gravity. For now though, it sits, useless, in dock on a station orbiting Saturn. On the plus side, Eddie gets to meet people.
