- "Your life is your own. Rise up and live it."
- -Niklas Jaxx
Niklas was born on the Gallenti world of Gallentia in the Belhov Sector. His father was first mate to the infamous Gallenti pirate Lord, Edward “Blackstar” Teech. Niklas was born within a calendar year of his older brother, Mykal. According to the Pirata Codex this was considered a bad omen and caused Niklas to grow up with the stigma of being deemed an unlucky child.
To offset the label of an unlucky child, as Niklas grew up he started to become somewhat of a daredevil. When he was fifteen, Niklas agreed to a dare to enter the lair of a large reptilian carnivore. Surprised by the creature, Niklas found himself in the clutches of the creatures huge maw. Fortunately the vibroshiv he was carrying was also inside the creature's mouth. Niklas was able to shove the shiv through the roof of the creature's mouth, which caused the creature to let go of Niklas and run away in pain. One of the creature's teeth had lodged itself in Niklas' ribcage just missing his heart by a few millimeters. Niklas kept the tooth as a good luck pendant that he has worn ever since.
When Niklas Jaxx came of age, he asked his father if he could have the Steel Aurora to venture out into the galaxy. The Steel Aurora was a Hyrotil Cresent-class transport that came to the Jaxx family as a salvaged unflyable hunk of junk. Merrolasri-stitrank, an annoying Squib mechanic/pilot, bartered to help fix the Steel Aurora in exchange for a place to live. Under Merrolasri-stitrank's care the Steel Aurora became a flyable hunk of junk. Niklas' father agreed to the arrangement under one condition, he had to take Merrolasri-stitrank as well.
Appearance & PersonalityEdit
Niklas was a tall, well built young man. He had brown eyes, a piercing raptor gaze, and coarse brown hair. He typically wore the simple clothes of his Gallenti culture. He always wore a necklace made from an animal tooth that to him was a symbol of good luck.
Niklas is a very patient, gentle person who values life. He believed that it was the right of all people to be free and that they must choose to fight for that freedom, not rely on others to do the job for them.
Niklas shaped his principles and actions around the Pirata Codex, except the one that claimed he was an unlucky child due to the timing of his birth. To prove otherwise, he had a tendency to rush into risky situations with little or no thought.
