Rex was born to be a mercenary. His parents were both members of the legendary Wolf’s Dragoons. And both were well respected Battlemech pilots. One might have expected him to follow in their footsteps… but it was not to be.

In the dead of night, Rex’s father came and spirited him away. Father and son fled the Dragoons, and Rex’s mother. For months, they traveled from world to world, trying to hide their tracks. Rex was too young to understand why his mother was gone, or why his father was so scared.

Eventually, what Scott Yaeger was running from found them. He was gunned down before Rex’s eyes, and the boy was left to fend for himself on the war-torn world of Adoracion. It was a hellish place, where everyone fought to survive. Even children. Fortunately for him, Rex was taken in by a grizzled old battlefield veteran named Caleb, who taught the boy to be a soldier.

Just as Rex was beginning to thrive on the blood soaked sands of Adoracion, disaster struck again. Caleb’s family was butchered, and Rex was blamed. His surrogate father turned on him, and tried to kill him. Rex fled… and was found by his mother, Magda. She took Rex off of Adoracion, and back into the fold… to the Dragoons.

Magda seemed pleased that Rex had grown into such a fine warrior, but her satisfaction was short lived. Once back among the Wolves, Rex sought, and recieved, a posting with Wolf-Net, the covert ops branch of the Dragoons. Magda disliked spies, and thought them ‘cowardly’. She and Rex had a falling out, and did not speak for some time.

Years later, after completing his training and several covert missions, Rex stumbled upon some sensative Dragoon’s documents… which changed his life forever. He now knew the identity of his father’s murderer: Magda. And she had knowingly left him on Adaracion for years to fend for himself. Then, SHE had come and slain Caleb’s family, placing the blame on him. Magda was responsible for all of the pain he had grown up with… she had done all this out of some twisted desire to mold him to be a great soldier. His choice to join Wolf-Net had been but a temporary setback in her eyes… she had yet another plan to force him on to the ‘correct’ path once more. A plan that, once again, would shatter his life and leave a trail of blood and carnage in his path.

But even more disturbing than the revelations about his mother was his discoveries about the true nature of the Dragoons… and the coming conflict that threatened the Inner Sphere.

Rex made his stand. He burned every bridge, called in every favor, and got away from Wolf-Net, from the Dragoons, and from Magda. He made it away with a duffel bag full of Dragoon’s cash on his shoulder, a price on his head, and the knowledge that the whole world might soon come to an end. But despite all that, for the first time in his life… he was free.

Now… where to go from here?
