Norman was born in Carthage, an orbital Space Station, orbitting Saturn. It was a quaint place, no one but Farmers and Veterans lived on the Station. It was also safe, no one saw it as an advantage, so enemies usually passed it without thoughts. That was up until Graice's War, which was a battle between Galactic Alliance Marines and the Pirate Leader Graice E. Shepard. When she came to Carthage, she chose to stay with Norman. Occasionally they'd exchange glances, or nod at each other. But after a while, she grew closer to him, yet he didn't care for her, but like her men, she was led to believe she could have anything she wanted, and she wanted the twenty year old she lived with. Though she found the task hard the night she made her move, and it ended up with her getting hog-tied and turned into The Galactic Alliance. This started his Bounty Hunting career, and made him hate most Pirates beyond belief.
