Captain Vai Scryp and his copilot Mal-Strom: Gearing up for another payday.
About this creation
Prepare for Story Mode. This will be a long one.
An ancient myth tells of a swordsman who saved the world from chaos and destruction. This legendary warrior has many names, but the current name identifies the warrior as The Nova King.
Tales such as The Nova King help morally unify the space faring species of the Galaxy Core Societies (GCS), although each species adopt different elements of these myths for their moral justification. This process of justification eventually gave rise to a culture of universal subjectivism, a philosophical system that prompted most of the GCS to become isolationist in the majority of their affairs. The GCS has no central governing body, and no central military or justice service. All of the societies agreed to maintain a pacifist anarchy system not only in regards to one another, but within their own societies as well.
With the absence of a global justice system, law enforcement is left to the individual. Although most citizens adhere to the pacifist way, there are individuals who find taking what they want to be a far easier way sustain themselves. The only counter element to keep open crime at bay is a robust and profitable network of Bounty Hunters and Guns for Hire; the new warriors.
These warriors would fight for whom ever had the right trade goods. There was an honor amongst them, but from time to time, epic battles would break out, thinning their number. One person’s warrior was another person’s marauder.
Vai Scryp, was one such warrior. A former bounty hunter and captain of the Nova Wing, and Nova Wing 2. Scryp revered the legend of The Nova King. He adopted the classic Nova King imagery into his own persona, and used the tales told of the Nova King to justify his own actions. While overseeing the production of his signature star fighter, The Nova Wing 2, he demanded that certain customizations transform his ship to evoke a similar look to that of The Nova King’s classically visualized helm.
During his life, Captain Scryp made quite a name for himself. In his early career, he was one of the top bounty hunters in the core planets. Once he realized that a far greater profit could be made by making himself available as a “hired gun”, he quickly became one of the most notorious personalities on the freelance market, and a household name amongst small and mid level industrialist.
This fame also brought a heightened amount of animosity towards Captain Scryp from his peers. Attempts on Scypt’s life became a routine factor when accepting new assignments. The frequent and troublesome attacks reached a boiling point, and during a prolonged hunt for a group of life-form traffickers, his first starfighter, along with half of his own body were destroyed. Reluctantly, he was forced to bring on a young assistant, Mal-Strom, to help.
With his new assistant, and a new starfighter, The Nova Wing 2, Captain Scryp once again dominated the Guns for Hire market.
Eventually, their success began to take a huge toll on Captain Scryp. To contend with Scryp’s pride, marauders would work extra hard to undo Nova Wing’s accomplishments. Scryp became fatigued with how, upon payment for services rendered, he would be called on again a few days later to perform the same task all over again from the very same client. Scryp started turning jobs down, regarding them as a waste of time. This is when his true legend was born.
Scryp and Mal-Strom began a personal campaign to decimate the prolific marauder population. Scryp refused to accept any payment for his actions, surviving solely off of his earnings from the past 40 years of service, and any supplies acquired from his battles. Soon afterward, more veteran warriors began campaigns of their own, and a new era of rogue peace keepers was born.
