Captain James Hopper
Affiliation: Periphery (Circinus Federation)
- Captain James Hopper is the leader of the pirate band jokingly call Hopper’s Hard Kills as everyone knows Hopper is one tuff bastard to kill and many have tried and failed do to some uncanny luck on Hopper’s part.
- James Hopper and his band is currently on the run from the Black Warriors do to some misunderstand that surrounds a ex-pirate located on the Periphery planet of Galava who James gladly gave the location up for the stray lady pirate for a price but the Warriors feel that he porously failed to mention that she had a armed force backing her up there, hens the misunderstanding and current death threats hanging over Hopper’s head.
- Hopper’s Hard Kills has always grown and shrunk with its failures and successes and always seems to be one step away from making it big time or one step above destruction but on good terms with desperation. The band is currently made up of a Lance of Medium and Light ‘Mechs with Hopper’s prized custom Grasshopper 5K DI-GHR along with a Lance of Light armor and one of support vehicles with pirates to man them all traveling in their Lucky Harpy a Q-ship Rose dropship with mechbays.
- It is rumored that James Hopper’s luck of survival is because he once was a spy for the Lyrans and other rumors states that he and his band of ‘pirates’ live as common traders on many Periphery planets to just turn around an change their colors the next planet they come to and then sell their goods as legit merchandise on another planet.
