History[edit]


Growing up on Coruscant


Hale Firekeeper was in 10BBY to a middle class family, his parents names where Duncun, and Garnet and he has a older brother. Rocket was brought up to be an Imperial, because his father was in the Imperial Navy. So he did not get to see his father that much, his mother went missing when he was the age of ten. After she left Duncun Firekeeper came home to find someone to take care of his son's. After taking care of all the legal paperwork he went back to the Navy. Rocket had a curries mind which sometimes led him into trouble, but usually for him it was worth it. When his father came home one time on leave he told Rocket of the things that he did in the Navy, which Rocket took into mind and started thinking about joining the Navy as soon as he was able. After a time Rocket got bored of just sitting around and messing with old machines that is when he got his first chance to fly at the age of twelve. During that experience Rocket showed that he had an exceptional ability to fly or at least that's what he was told. After his brother left to go into the Stormtrooper Corps, Rocket left Coruscant when he was the age of fourteen.


Traveling Days


When he left Coruscant he spent the next four years traveling around the galaxy to try to find what his life's calling would be, during his travels he met some interesting people also some people that wanted to kill him for reason's that Rocket still does not know to this day. Rocket keep tabs with his brother when the information hit that The Last Home had not been heard from for awhile. When Rocket was seventeen he lost contact with his brother for reason's unknown to him at the time. When Rocket heard about the Vast Empire he decided that it might be a good idea to try to get in so that he could follow in his father's footsteps which would mean that he would have to one day command a ship, and that he would have to find his father.


Vast Empire[edit]


Hale Firekeeper callsign Rocketman has been assigned to four squadrons so far for his service.


Viper Squadron[edit]


After Rocket passed the academy he was pushed right into a squadron and the squadron was Viper Squadron, due to the fact that they had so many get reassigned or die, during his time in Viper, Rocket improved his flying skills. Due to a personal reason he had to leave the Navy for a time.


Kaph Squadron[edit]


After Rocket came back to the Navy it was decided to put him into Kaph during his time there he met one of his mentors Than Sion. Who taught him that being in the Navy wasn't the only thing that he could do or something like that. And one of his friends and wingmate at the time Stormz. Which some people did not understand but to Rocket Stormz was like his bigger brother that he had not seen in a long time. After a time in Kaph another personal reason came up so that Rocket once again had to leave the Navy.


Nazgul Squadron[edit]


After being gone from the Navy for a year and a month Rocket once again enlisted back into the Navy, this time being put into the Legendary Squadron Nazgul. There he met most of the people that are still are apart of the Navy including Hunter Morrell, Drac, Stewart-Power, and Willtconq. There he met another one of his mentors Geordi Atrasin, which Rocket gave him the nickname of Boss. What Atrasin taught Rocket was there was more to life than being a pilot and every once and a while you had to let loose and get into a bar fight, he also told him that it wasn't everything to follow him your father's footsteps. Rocket stayed in Nazgul until its deactivation after the battle of Lehon.


After Effects of Lehon[edit]


Rocket got very depressed after the events of Lehon, also dealing with the recent information that he had gotten on his father, and losing so many of his friend's was hard for him to deal with. Especially since according to the Vast Empire Lehon never happened. So Rocket did the only thing that sounded good to him at the time and developed a habit for the taste of alcohol, so that he would not have to deal with the pain and the depression.


Tuk'ata Squadron[edit]


After the closing of Nazgul Rocket was reassigned to the new Squadron Tuk'ata. Under the command of Hunter Morrell until he was replaced by Drac. After Drac disappeared it was decided that Stormz would take over the squadron for a time. After Stormz went on to better things Bacredi was placed as the SC. Rocket was gonna start a mission when he got reassigned to Rhegent's Reign.


Rhegent's Reign[edit]


Rocket was placed as the XO of Rhegent's Reign because the Navy was doing a reorganization.


Vast Empire Naval Academy[edit]


For awhile Rocket was looking for something to do cause he was bored of the life in the Navy, so when a call went out to get more trainers for the Academy he imdently took up that calling. Once he arrived he noticed that the Academy was not the same as when he went though, so he went though and started changing things so that the recruits would have an easier time adjusting to the Navy life with permission of course.


Change of Management[edit]


Rocket was Flight Leader for Beta Flight and than Bacredi steeped down from his position as XOA and Rocket was placed as the new one.
