"The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of childhood into maturity."
At his darkest hour he ran away from his parental house and roamed the Coruscant underworld for a while picking up survival tricks and meeting interesting people. It was there that he met with Vigo Carpathia who decided to adopt him into his own family and raised him as his own little brother.
During the following years he created a very close friendship with his brothers Vermin and Humorous who both liked to make fun and tease him but loved him as if he was their real brother. His sister Red Sonja saw his potential and got him to focus on the creation of armor and weaponry which he excelled in for a few years, creating armors for Red Sonja, Eve Palpatine, Zavalon Venn and others.

"All great truths begin as blasphemies."
He is currently the only gay person who is in the First Galactic Empire and because of his powerfull connection with the current empress Eve Palpatine nobody even dares to point out he is gay.
