Any unhealthy habits: N/A; worked out bad habits years ago History Eryx originally hails from a small colony close to the Fringe with a majority-human population, as well as a novakid minority. Raised around humans, Eryx naturally assumed a mirror-perfect humanoid shape, particularly the general shape of one of his parents' old friends. As soon as he reached maturity, he did as most novakid do: He began wandering. For nearly two centuries he made his living as a gunslinger in the more lax areas of civspace, taking on whatever combative work he could manage to find, some of which put him at odds with local law enforcement. Severe offenses on dozens of planets resulted in Eryx escaping back to the fringes of the galaxy, where he learned the more tame profession of metalworking in an attempt to lye low. After meeting his spouse, it inevitably turned into his permanent profession alongside gunsmithing. After roughly two hundred years of artisan work across several planets, his wife inevitably passed from old age, leaving the novakid alone once more. He traded his sedentary career for a life of wandering once more, with Eryx now looking for a place to settle down for his final decades after centuries of life.
