Thorvald was born on the planet Santo, playground of the rich and famous, to a family in one of its many service industries. Despite his families relative poverty, his education on Santo was pretty good, and thorvald an exceptional student. After graduation from primary education, His families employer offered him a scholarship to study medicine on Osiris, in return for a 10 year contract as an on call physician in his resort. Despite somewhat oppressive terms for him and his family, he took the scholarship.
During his time at University, whispers of war reached the students’ ears. Osiris was essentially untouchable, but when war reached Santo during Thorvald’s first year of residency, he felt compelled to return home. After Hitching a ride, he found his home resort in chaos, the seperatists having instigated an uprising against the resort owners. In order to protect his family, he joined a browncoat squad as a medic, and helped push back the security forces.
As the war dragged on, Thorvald got to see more of the verse than he had ever planned on. On the planet Verbena, near the end of the war, his crew happened to be nearby when a ranking alliance captain was caught in a bombing. When the browncoats moved in, Thorvald refused to allow the prisoners summary execution, and insisted on treating the victims. His actions lost him some of his friends amongst the seperatists, but gained him a reputation for honor, alongside a few friends in the alliance.
In the years since the war, Thorvald has bounced from crew to crew, roaming the ‘verse, working as a doctor for hire. He doesn’t talk much of his service in the war, but occasionally, veterans from both sides recognize the name, for good or ill. For reasons he cant quite figure out for himself, he tries to avoid returning to Santo, or really, any news of his homeworld at all.
