Backstory

When Patrick was sixteen, his world turned upside down. During a contested contract on the border of the Draconis Combine, his parents’ unit was ambushed by a lance of House Kurita’s elite MechWarriors. Patrick, who had stowed away in the cargo bay of a support vehicle to witness the battle, could only watch in horror as his parents fell in combat. Stranded and alone, Patrick was rescued by the remnants of his parents’ unit, who in their loss, took him under their wing. In the following years, Patrick channeled his grief into determination. Under the tutelage of the unit’s surviving members, he honed his skills as a MechWarrior, showing a natural aptitude for piloting that belied his young age. He quickly mastered the art of guerrilla tactics and became known for his uncanny ability to navigate through hazardous terrains, earning him the callsign “Phantom.” Turning Point: On his twenty-first birthday, Patrick’s unit was hired for a seemingly straightforward mission: to escort a convoy of medical supplies through the lawless territories of the Periphery. However, the mission was a trap set by pirate forces looking to plunder the valuable cargo. Outnumbered and outgunned, Patrick’s leadership and strategic mind turned the tide. Using the environment to his advantage and executing daring maneuvers, he led a counterattack that not only decimated the pirate force but also ensured the safe delivery of the supplies. This victory marked Patrick as a rising star in the mercenary world and a person of interest to the major powers of the Inner Sphere. Yet, Patrick remains fiercely loyal to his unit, viewing them as the family he lost. With a reputation as both a skilled pilot and a cunning tactician, Patrick now seeks to honor his parents’ memory by leading the Galatean Ghosts to greater renown, all the while navigating the treacherous politics and endless conflicts of the MechWarrior universe.
