__________________IN-DEPTH STUFF

Physical Description:
Build- Decently muscled, though not big
Eyes/Face: Brown, square jaw, clean-shaven, full lips
Hair: Cut short, top parted to the right
Clothes: Navy blue tee, brown, leather bomber jacket. Jeans and sturdy brown, leather boots. Holster on right thigh. Black, fingerless gloves and kneepads.


Personality: Flynn is a risk-taker and a thrill-seeker, first and foremost. Very rarely will he take any sort of situation seriously, preferring to perform his work with a sense of confident swagger. A quick wit has lead to many altercations, not to mention the fact that he is not beyond bending the rules to get his way.

In general, he's not necessarily evil. He's a kind and affable fellow to most that he meets, always ready with a joke to lighten the mood. Professionalism is a foreign concept to him. However, he is still a criminal, and thus will almost always do nothing unless there's money in it for him.

Magic/Abilities: What makes Flynn different from most smugglers? His innate ability to control ice, of course! Flynn can create many simply objects from ice, including shields and blades. As of yet, he has no idea where this ability comes from.

For combat, Flynn keeps his trusty plasma revolver on his thigh. On his back he wears an odd contraption passed down from his father. On command, mechanical wings sprout from the small "backpack" and allow flight using an unknown form of anti-gravity system. Handy for quick escapes.

Relationships: None

History: Unbeknownst to Flynn, the smuggler was not actually born on Cancer. He was left there as an infant by his father and mother, who hailed from another star system. In their neck of the galaxy, pirates reigned supreme, and even had a form of organized government, headed by a monarchy. Flynn's parents were the king and queen of this "pirate kingdom", effectively making Flynn a prince.

However, Flynn spent his life growing up on cancer as an orphan. When he wasn't cooped up in the small orphanage he called his home (or trying to sneak out), he ran amok among the pirates, criminals, and assorted others of the space station. With little education or marketable skills, Flynn was drawn to the life of crime as a way to keep food in his stomach. It started small, by petty theft at age twelve, to drug-dealing at age fifteen. He began to move up in rank in Cancer's underbelly, eventually landing a job as a deckhand aboard a smuggler's ship. It was here that he discovered a knack for piloting. Seeing this, the ship's captain took the twenty year-old under his wing as an apprentice, teaching him the tools of the trade for an accomplished smuggler.

Then, one day, their luck ran out. The law caught up with them on Edanith. Flynn watched his crew and captain get arrested by law enforcement, and took the opportunity to run before he could be seen.

Now, Flynn has his own ship, and works strictly as a solo act. He makes his money smuggling, loses it gambling, and occasionally takes a vacation by searching the outer reaches of the system for new worlds to explore.
