Cage Drumél is a mystery to most. Records indicate his doctoral degrees in hyper dimensional physics and engineering make him much smarter than most. Beyond that the record shows him as a single Vinta sect male who acts as a civilian contractor to the Alliance Navy specifically in engineering and repair of special operations technology. Although he has been offered honorary officer commissions, he has chosen to remain a civilian while stationed aboard flag vessels. He has been repeatedly researched and undergone extensive loyalty and informational secrecy examinations where his scores are ever in the upper percentile. He is, at least on the record, a perfect specimen of civilian resource to the Alliance.\
Off the record, however, his past is twisted, colorful and the reason why his uncracked exterior must remain perfect. Vinta followers must spend 4 years serving in the sect militia in order to become more disciplined and be more engrained in the Vinta faith. Naturally, this makes them ideal candidates for Space Army/Marine membership in the Alliance. But, Cage who began life as T’Charto Ben Falcore, was the product of his angry and abusive father raising him alone with his two brothers. Escaping from his duties as a Vinta male, he stowed away aboard a freighter. He began working for a crew which became one of the most infamous pirate bands in the quadrant: the “Juggernots”. Learning their skills of leverage, information manipulation, and op tech design – especially as it related to ship and personal defense, T’Charto became a full member of the crew at the age of 21 – on his birthday. It was also the day he killed for the first time when an Alliance Customs Cutter stopped them on suspicion of piracy. As was the way of the Juggernots, reboarding was the course to victory and within 6 hours, the Cutter was rechristened the Juggernaut vessel named: the “Cage.” To honor the birthday boy who had fought so bravely and killed his first few Alliance men, T’Charto was given command of the cutter and a small crew. For several years, T’Charto supported his mentors in pirate actions including kidnapping and ransoms – where the crew of the Cage made the most credits. On one such ransom run, amongst the many abductees was a beautiful daughter of the Alliance named Janice Talora. She was a fellow Vinta but had found solace in the peace and beauty of the gods. T’Charto found her intoxicating, and because of the length of the journey to her Alliance parents, T’Charto fell in love with her. But when the crew discovered his love for her, they immediately had her killed stating that no ransom is worth love. He went wild with rage and was immediately relieved of command. Convincing the crew days later that he had recovered, he disabled the Cage and fled from his piracy life in a shuttle never to return.
Returning to his Vinta roots, he spent two years underground working for a hacker syndicate before he created a believable enough cover to fool anyone. He also bathed himself in the peaceful aspect of the Vinta sect which had him so enthralled with Janice, and he began attending services as “Cage Drumél.” Two years to-the-day that Janice was killed, he approached an Alliance Naval Intelligence office and applied for his services as a civilian contractor. After his interview and six months of tests, he no longer had to stow away aboard any ship, he was stationed on the Alliance destroyer Styx where he made a name for himself giving the crew and Marines powerful advantages in combat. His name spread over the course of years.
He dated many a lovely Alliance officer, but none could ever match his allure for his lost love. He was eventually put aboard the flagship of the Alliance, the Hermes. There he serves flight crews with his talents and maximizes their StarBlades’ fighting abilities.
