History and Experiences Which have Affected Character Greatly: As a new officer in the Starfleet Rangers Reid was part of team pursuing the colony pirate Baxter "Butch" Cavendish. However, the party found themselves in a murderous ambush arranged by Cavendish which left seemingly every ranger dead, and their ruined scout drifting in space. Reid's childhood friend, a Nausicaan known as To'Tao, had overheard of the planned attack and followed the Raider's ship. He arrived too late to stop the ambush and boarded the drifting Ranger scout ship. To'Tao discovered Reid to be alive. To'Tao took him aboard his ancient warp shuttle and nursed him back to health. As Reid recovered, To'Tao destroyed the damaged Ranger scout. Reid vowed to bring the killers and others like them to justice.
Starfleet Rangers eventually finds the shattered wreck and list all Rangers known to be aboard as missing in action, probably dead.
As their adventures together begin Reid is aided by an unknown benefactor that claims to be an enemy of Cavendish and all like him. The Benefactor supplied Reid and To'Tao with a sleek scout ship named Silver Stallion. The Benefactor also sees that the pair have such funds as they need to operate, only so long as they stay on the right side of the law.
Reid, hiding his identity with disguises and scan buffers, travels the outer frontier seeking Cavendish and dealing justice when and where there is a need.
