O captain, my captain!

Well we've had our first session now, which was mostly finishing character generation and talking through how these people met, formed a crew and the ship they find themselves in. I figured that it might be best to introduce some of these folks and where best to start than with our captain....

Floris van Roozemond comes from a wealthy family, powerful in the alliance: effectively nobility.  He had a troubled upbringing but found pleasure in open spaces; he went riding; he played and hunted with hounds.  He became closer to them than to people.

One day he flew off in his father's old restored & rennovated Firefly. Perhaps his father wants him and/or the ship back, or perhaps, he just lets Floris go with it.

He had the noble bearing and enough money to pull a crew together, but more on that in future posts. 

But the truth of all this will probably be discovered during the game...
