Grew up in a working class family, and inherited their natural distrust of figures of authority. Spent a few years working in the bars on the station, saving for an education. Picking up what he could about who’s who, and who to watch out for. Entered naval academy and barely graduated.
Once he’d graduated finding work was easy. He was hired as a junior petty officer for a freight small ship, the Thornback, of the Merchant fleet. The ship was operating with a scarce crew and Toland had to give a hand where ever he was needed. Which is to say he worked his ass of, running all over the ship,. But doing so he got to know every officer. What their flaws were. What they excelled at.
Soon enough his captain, Irina Yegorova, a retired veteran from the navy, found his keen insight of the crew’s mood a valuable resource. This could have been the start of a climb towards captaincy. But unfortunately that was not to be.
During a routine run between Vrama and Azuria of the Coral Republic, the Thornback was ambushed by the infamous Bonefish. A large pirate ship that had been harassing and raiding small freighters in the Pacific South. The Thornback was helpless, out gunned and unable to flee, captain Yegorova was forced to surrender her ship and crew.
Toland still cannot completely recall all that followed. He must have spent about half a year as a prisoner on board the Bonefish. As a confident of his captain, Toland had gotten to know quite a few details about the routes and routines of the Merchant fleet. His captors found these details… valuable. And they spared him from sharing the fate of his shipmates.
As far as Toland knows, he’s the only survivor of the Thornback. The shame of his betrayal weighs Heavy on his shoulders. And he harbors a deep hatred of pirates, and the Bonefish in particular.
