"THE DITCH KID"
You don’t think kush just appears in the hands of kriminals, do you? Nope. The native form of kush, a particle known to scientists as KSH, must be harvested from the seriously-hazardous-to-your-health asteroid belt. And to navigate the belt, you need a damn good Spider Pilot.
Duke Colorado is one of the best. As a “ditch kid”, or orphan, he grew up with Jake Paladino on the fringes of the Tower Cities. A notorious driver since age ten, Colorado was recruited for “the works”, twelve courses of cybernetic enhancements that bond him to his ships (and keep him in debt to his gang). How else to enable the split second reflexes required to navigate the debris-strewn “kush fields”? Colorado can come off as a lunatic on the ground, but put him in a ship, and he’s a steely-eyed missile man. And he’s always 100% loyal—even when it means putting his own ass on the line.
