Darth Skorpius Presents "Write My Bio" an EVE Fan Fic Contest

Can you write? Do you want to win a couple of PLEX?
Yes and yes? Then Darth Skorpius needs your help, he is in need of some memories (if you ask me, his memory loss is for the best with the amount of times he's been destroyed while piloting Badgers).
This is what we've got so far:
Personal Life


Race: Caldari
Bloodline: Achura
Born: YC 89.02.15
Age: 24 1/2
Occupation Prior to Becoming a Capsuleer: CLASSIFIED
Graduated: Late 109 (exact date unknown) from Kisogo VII - State War Academy School
Pilots License Registered: YC 109.12.26
Current Employer: 352 Industries
Current Position: 352 Industries Diplomatic Liaison
Current Deployment: Alliance: Order of the Void Corp: Legion of Darkwind
Born on Saisio III to Achura parents his family moved to Kisogo IX when Darth Skorpius was still an infant. He is rumoured to have been a bright child and while this wasnt always reflected with academic success, he was often called upon by family and friends to help solve problems relating to various pecies to technology and was able to achieve enough to gain entrance to the State War Academy School.
His real name has been classified for unkown reasons, and he prefers to be called Skorp as it is shorter and easier to say, and has in the past been part of corporations with more than one "Darth"
In early October YC110 an unknown accident occurred resulting in partial memory loss and he only remembers bits and pieces of his life prior to YC 110.10.07 when he was successfully reanimated and returned to the realm of the Capsuleer. As a result, little is known about his personal life.
