Michael West

An exceptionally talented navigator and the father of John West.

The most talented navigator on the Heirotus payroll until he left the company in 1968, Michael was one of the first genetic contributors to the Addicaine program, and assisted in the early development of the BTS.

Michael joined the Templar ranks in the early 1970s, having attained the rank of VI ° before being granted a Theater Rank of IX ° following the founding of Thule Garrison. Co-founder Ivan Kursk assumed command after West succumbed to brain cancer in 1985.

Michael West is still officially considered “missing” by Heirotus, as is the ship and the crew that he disappeared with. There is no record of his presence in Colonial Authority space after 1971.
