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 home world. 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. 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.
By his late teens he was devising ways to escape.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.
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, 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 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 starship. 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.
As the years passed and Erik matured and carried on as a seasoned bounty hunter he discovered more clues about the Force and its legends. He would pick up as much information as he could, trying to further his own abilities when opportunities presented themselves. His adventures would lead him to the Dark Side and he would lose all interest in bounties unless it furthered his goals for knowledge.
Eventually he found the Brotherhood and sold most of his belongings to pay back his debt. He parted ways with the Ryloth Damsel and start training as a Sith apprentice under Lilith Stormwind-Versea of Clan Naga Sadow.
Athletic build, dressed in fitted matte-black clothing and a cloak for concealment. His face is recognizable by its tiny scars, prominent cheek bones and thin lips. Short, militaristic black hair is combed back to reveal a sharp under-shave. The eyes are pale blue with a hint of gold when not bearing the mark of the Dark side. His voice carries a broken, aristocratic lilt and a low tone as part of his upbringing among a secret sect of slavers.
