Anslen Volontany was born in BYE 17 on Essia System. He took up his father's trade of being a blacksmith and married young. His wife, Tanis Volontany nee Sanssinia and him had many children. His tribe believed in the old tradition that hunting for one's food as a young Separa'Shan made one more empathic as a adult. Unlike some who believed in this practice, he still wanted to have a relationship with his children so he and his wife would often visit their children in the Jungle. As this was before contact with Yamatai, the mortality rate for young Separa'Shan was very high. Although some of his children and he did not have a good relationship, he loves all of his children.

He was fairly well known in the city where he lived, involved in the politics, civics, and trade of the city. He was the lead negotiator on some of the most important trade deals that the city made. After the death of his youngest daughter in space, Anslen fell into a deep depression. It took a while for him to come out of it. However, when he did, he decided to see what his daughter had been so fascinated with.

Anslen left Essia in YE 33. Because he was quite wealthy, he left his blacksmithing business to one of his sons. He forged several trade deals on behalf of various cities and the larger Galaxy. While he personally did not make the first contact with other races, he often followed up with offers of trade deals. Eventually, he returned to Essia to become its Senator to Yamamtai. As Senator, he has been involved in the senate committee on trade.
