Born to a poor family barely ekeing out a living in the small settlement of Estuar on Akiton, Quig Dexel developed a fascination at an early age with the various water purification plants that skirted the nearby polar ice caps. Spurred by this curiosity, he taught himself the basics of engineering by stealthily tinkering and began constructing the first iteration of his drone companion, Scout. A chance encounter with a bounty hunter chasing down a human quarry filled Quig with a rush of adrenaline such as he had never felt. This inspired him to leave home and eventually join up with Dhareen The Vise, training him in the ways of bounty hunting. Once Dhareen announced her retirement, Quig started his own journey, making a name for himself across the Pact Worlds with his continuously upgraded drone companion.
