John was born on Kidikit. His family run a small mechanic shop. John learned a few things about maintaining various ground and hover vehicles while growing up there. When he came of age, he decided to leave home and join his world's militia forces.
After getting into a fight with one of his D.I.'s which he had a "disagreement"(who beat him decisively), he was drummed out of the service.
With a few credits to his name, John, ashamed to go home, is looking for work - as far away from Kidikit as possible. He wants to get his tech skills up to par so ,one day, he can pilot his own freighter ship. He knows he has a long way to go, but he'll do anything to make it happen. Anyone need an inexpensive "Troubleshooter?"
