=== Early Life ===
  
Erik Cato was a warrior from the beginning. His kidnapping and childhood conditions in underground dueling pits forged an excellence in combat skill for his age, outlasting his opponents who would at times perish as punishment for their failures. He became aware of his force sensitivities in his teens through during one of thousands of battles. It gave him the power and confidence to try and escape. After a daring break out, he and a small crew of warrior slavers escaped. After parting ways with the other former slaves, Cato spent a year as a bouncer and barman before becoming a very capable bounty hunter. It was through these adventures that he learned more about the force, its legends and clues to its many secrets. Eventually his findings lead him to the Dark Jedi Brotherhood where he seeks to improve his abilities and obsessively gain power for personal independence from any future oppression.

Eric Cato doesn't remember much of his past, including his parents or homeworld. He was kidnapped at a young age and brought to a mobile dueling facility being run by an elite crime organisation known as the Initiative. It moved from one location to another to avoid detection, having discovered an astrogation list of dozens of usable landing areas. He was raised as a dueling slave, forced constantly to prove himself in battle or suffer heavy consequences and possibly death. As he survived his trials and grew into a capable warrior, he discovered his powers with [[starwars:the_Force|the Force]] despite not knowing its name.

He naturally enhanced his combat skills temporarily by channeling his anger and was a fierce competitor as a result. During times of rest and quiet, he found that his wounds would heal at a much faster rate than the other human slaves if he concentrated on the pain.

As a young adult he worked as a barman and bouncer near the Marina District in [[starwars:Keren|Keren]] on [[starwars:Naboo|Naboo]]. His rough upbringing made him an asset to the bar when situations were explosive. Pay was little but as a benefit he stayed in one of the rooms above the bar. He earned a strong reputation within a year as damages were at an all time low. The owner of the establishment, a [[starwars:Twi%27lek|Twi'lek]] named Dell, hired him on in a new business venture as bounty hunter with a crew of 6 in exchange for a substantial debt. An impounded [[starwars:Class_720_freighter|Ghtroc Class 720 freighter]] was purchased and designated The Ryloth Damsel. The name was to add further insult to injury as the previous criminal owner had painted a giant risque [[starwars:Twi%27lek|Twi'lek]] on the side of the ship. The crew started with local bounties until drawing too much attention to themselves. Wanting to keep discrete, they moved business off-world and traveled the galaxy shipping goods, passengers and serving bounties wherever they could find work. A large portion of profits went into improving the freighter and over the next several years Erik would call it his home.

Pre-Brotherhood History

Early Life

Eric Cato doesn't remember much of his past, including his parents or homeworld. He was kidnapped at a young age and brought to a mobile dueling facility being run by an elite crime organisation known as the Initiative. It moved from one location to another to avoid detection, having discovered an astrogation list of dozens of usable landing areas. He was raised as a dueling slave, forced constantly to prove himself in battle or suffer heavy consequences and possibly death. As he survived his trials and grew into a capable warrior, he discovered his powers with the Force despite not knowing its name.

By his late teens he was devising ways to escape using his new abilities. After a year of planning, he and several other slaves formulated a way to break free and murder their captors. They broke out of their cells, captured a small but fast freighter and left a path of destruction behind them as passing revenge.

Entering Adulthood

As a young adult he worked as a barman and bouncer near the Marina District in Keren on Naboo. His rough upbringing made him an asset to the bar when situations were explosive. Pay was little but as a benefit he stayed in one of the rooms above the bar. He earned a strong reputation within a year as damages were at an all time low. The owner of the establishment, a Twi'lek named Dell, hired him on in a new business venture as bounty hunter with a crew of 6 in exchange for a substantial debt. An impounded Ghtroc Class 720 freighter was purchased and designated The Ryloth Damsel. The name was to add further insult to injury as the previous criminal owner had painted a giant risque Twi'lek on the side of the ship. The crew started with local bounties until drawing too much attention to themselves. Wanting to keep discrete, they moved business off-world and traveled the galaxy shipping goods, passengers and serving bounties wherever they could find work. A large portion of profits went into improving the freighter and over the next several years Erik would call it his home.

Thirst for Knowledge and Power

As the years passed Erik excelled as a seasoned spacer and traveled to many worlds. He discovered clues about the Force mostly through spoken legend and bounty contracts out on force users. His developing powers and galactic adventures would ultimately lead him to be seduced by the dark side. He chose to value Sith knowledge and artifacts over the lives of others and this created a rift between him and the rest of the freighter's crew.

At 24 he finally found information relating to the Dark Jedi Brotherhood. He sold most of his belongings to clear his debts and parted ways from the Ryloth Damsel. With his remaining resources he made arrangements to follow the information. His presence in the force made him easy to spot and he was soon discovered by Sadowans on Aeotheran in the Orian System. His apprenticeship began under the tutelage of Lilith Stormwind-Versea not long after being initiated into Clan Naga Sadow.
