|Chronological and political information|
Born on Tharix Prime, an Imperial world on the Mid Rim. His father abandoned the family when Aeric was very young, also leaving behind Aeric's mother and brother, and taking all of the family's money with him. Still, the family persevered under the leadership of Aeric's ridiculously strong-willed mother. With neither the grades nor the money for college, Aeric joined the Alliance as a soldier. He became a crack commando, but transferred to Starfighter Command, and to this day refuses to explain why. While he had been a good commando, he excelled as a pilot. However, something happened to him lately that has changed him. He refuses to talk about this as well though one can sense something terrible has scarred him.
