Before leaving the Avian home world of Preen, Capt. Vel Vawk was an
elite striker pilot with the prestigious Black Sun Flock, the
technical combat wing of the Knights of Avo. His training
with the Black Sun Flock has produced a calm, steel-edged character
markedly different from the majority of his confidence-poor kin.
Capt. Vawk was accused of poisoning a Drakon
Baron and forced to flee his beloved home world to avoid an unjust
execution. A marked toy, Vawk made his narrow escape into
the vastness of space in his top-secret Crusader Bird
of War (see Some
a remarkable piece of Avian super-technology.
Vawk is a keen observer of Avian
traditions and customs even though it is that belief system that
has banished him from his home world. Vawk accepts this
banishment stoically and maintains that he is innocent of all
criminal charges with the exception of Capital Leavery,
the Avian crime of abandoning the home world.
While the Enforcement Team
at Gecko 7 BASE have standing orders to arrest Capt.
Vawk for extradition back to Preen, both AM Lindex and Prof. Ng have thus far been unable or unwilling to capture
their frequent guest and valuable ally.
