The long version:

~ Rough It Up ~

Lorcan grew up in the slums on the edges of Funky City, living in a small rundown apartment he shared with his biological mother Gwen. He managed to stay out of the way and out of the attentions of the local gangs up through his sixth birthday and then he started getting hard lessons in sticking up for himself. When he was eight his father finally got angry at the fact that his son wasn’t sticking up for himself and always coming home with bruises and cuts and scrapes. So he took him up the empty third floor of the building. Evan got angry seeing that his son was learning nothing and gave him a particularly hard punch sent Lorcan over the railing. He ended up sticking the landing for about a second or two before he fell right over and cracked his skull on the hard pavement.

~ Defense, Fence and Ire ~

Lorcan meets his mentor, a local pick-pocket, after helping the kid out of a dumpster after a particularly nasty gang vs. gang fight. Sensing that all Lorcan’s muscle could come in handy his mentor, Fence, taught Lorcan all he knew of Martial arts and Hand-to-hand combat in exchange for use of Lorcan as a body guard. He specialized in Martial arts and with his self-schooling in gymnastics he became a rather nasty human weapon. After a while Fence ended up picking a fight with the wrong kid from one of the gangs. Of course Lorcan meets the challenge to a fist fight. Of course it started off with them roughing each other up one on one in an alley. Throwing each other against walls and punching and kicking until the gangster pulled out a punching dagger and tried for a pot shot at Lorcan’s back. It must have been luck for the blade entered at an angle and ended up missing his spine by fractions of an inch. The gangster got the shiznits kicked out of him and Fence took Lorcan to the hospital to get stitched up. As a result he ended up buying the twin knives he now wears tucked inside his boots. Each is a foot long with a solid stainless steel blade, handles carved from poached ivory and wrapped in black leather for an easier grip. He also started wearing black leather, fingerless biker gloves over steel knuckles.

~ One of Us ~

Days later the leader of the Ire Gang came knocking with the excuse that since they had lost one of their best fighters to Lorcan he was to fill in the position and Lorcan accepted, with Fence on his heels. As part of the initiation ceremony into the gang Lorcan was told to choose a name for himself and ended up picking Sean Cathal meaning “God’s Gracious Gift of a Great Warrior”. To complete his initiation into the gang they had his upper right arm tattooed with his ‘gang name’ initials and the name of the gang. Form added effect and for his heritage he had tiny crosses put into the e and a’s.

~ Lost One ~

Lorcan’s father went MIA during the time Nepleslia was seceding from the Yamatai Empire. Nobody knows which battle or exactly when, just that the fact his body turned up eventually and he was listed as KIA and his family notified. Lorcan didn’t take this as hard as his mother did, not really having been close enough to his father to get attached.

~ Avid Reason ~

The only hells Lorcan had to live through after his father died was the names he was called after his father’s last name was released to the press. Mostly it was the fact that everyone was calling his father the ‘AWOL asshole’ that got him into the habit of taking any jokes or insults to his family name seriously resulting in flying fists and a bear of a temper he inherited from his father.

~ Escape ~

He managed to slip out of the gang and off to the military when he went with Fence on one of the boy’s several pick pocketing journeys. Lorcan left with the excuse of getting more drugs. Then made off for the stars and the shelters the Government offered, squirreling away with his penchant for mechanics and fixing things with his hands. Of course he was then trained to put his skills to further use and ended up here, a young, new maintenance mechanic with a future of possibilities ahead of him and a goal to become a humble business owner.
