Shady dealings in the past led him to the gladiatorial arenas of Viron as a slave. There he fought to find purpose and balance within himself. 5 years of fighting led Seven to become a legend among gladiators as he had never lost a fight. Being of such revered status Seven was allowed to be purchased and became the bodyguard of Lord Earl, sitting most fights out and attaining some modicum of freedom. During one particularly heated battle one combatant used a spear to vault into the audience and launch an attack on Lord Earl. Before being able to stop the man he was able to grievously injure Lord Earl. Having failed to protect his Lord, Seven escaped the arena for fear of execution. He managed to escape the clutches of the state slavers and crossed the waters away from Viron.
Moving from town to town looking for ways to redeem himself he ran into Captain Cyril Vanier who, having heard the tales of Sevens’ gladiator days, asked him to join a team he had begun to put together in order to better Redvasser. Seeing the opportunity to make up for his past failings he jumped at the chance to be a part of something so important.
